Introduction

Cyder Inc. Privacy Policy

Cyder, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Cyder”) collects your data directly from you (“you”, “your” or the “End User”), through our browser extension and web applications (the “Platform”). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and disclose your information. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the same definitions ascribed to them in the Terms and Conditions.

By visiting Cyder.com and/or using any of our Services, you agree to the terms outlined in this privacy policy.

Our Privacy Principles

When it comes to collecting, storing, and processing your data, Cyder treats your data the way we would want our own data to be treated. This can be broken down into the following principles:

  1. We ensure that you have a right to exercise control over what data is collected and shared via our Services. We will never collect, access, use, modify, sell, license, or share your data without your explicit permission.

  2. We only process your data in accordance with your instructions, if such processing is necessary to provide the Service to you or to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud or security issues.

  3. We ensure that we have appropriate measures in place to handle your data securely.

What we do

Cyder puts you in charge of your data by giving you the tools to manage it, the power to control who uses it, and the opportunity to earn money every time you share it. By using the Cyder browser extension, linking existing data sources to Cyder, answering questions, or simply interacting with our products, you empower Cyder algorithms to work on your behalf to draw valuable insights and analytics from your data that you can share with participating Businesses for a reward.

By joining and participating in the Services, you are providing your consent to Cyder and the Businesses you choose to share your data with (defined below) to utilize your data as described herein.

The Services provided through the Platform allows you to determine what data you would like to share and be included in the compensation for the sale of your data to various third parties, including, but not limited to, brands, financial institutions, market researchers, and data management platforms (collectively, the “Businesses”) in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.

Cyder provides Services directly to you as the owner of the data by providing you with a medium to exchange your data with the Businesses through the Platform. The Businesses we partner with generally use your data for market research, product development, and to better understand consumer perceptions and behaviors.

The data we collect

 

How Is Your Data Collected on Cyder?

Cyder collects data directly from you when you (i) elect to link a data source, (ii) answer profile questions, and (iii) install the Cyder browser extension.

 

What data do we collect?

We collect your data directly from your devices through our browser extension and our web application (the “Platform”). We hold and deal with your data in accordance with our privacy principles and in accordance with your instructions. All our Services are designed to give you control of your data and enable you to profit directly every time it is used, with Cyder acting as a platform that allows you to do so. We don’t collect, store or use your data without your consent and only access the information we need to function as a secure and feature-rich Platform. This means that, unlike the majority of the other online services, we don't use your data for ad targeting or for commercial purposes not related to our Services. We will store your data as long as your account is active or you are being rewarded for sharing data. Any time your data is shared as part of the Services, we will use a pseudonymized ID to recognize you, your browser, and/or your device without allowing a Business to know your real-world identity. The type of data that we collect from you may include:

 

Basic Account data

You provide us with details such as your name and email address to create a Cyder account that is needed to use our Services.

Our Service allows you to collect a wide range of data about yourself, ranging from your browsing habits to your data from social networking sites (collectively referred to as,your data). This may also include additional information that you agree to provide to us to increase your earnings on the platform, including your demographic data as well as your data residing on any third-party platforms, such as Twitter ( a “Third-Party Platform”), when you link them to the Cyder network. As a user on our platform, you have full visibility over what data has been collected and when. You can also remove any data you do not want to share, restrict what should be collected, and choose who you want to share your data with. We will only deal with your data in accordance with the permissions you set within the Platform.

We may also store some aggregated metadata to create Cyder features that work across all your devices.

Safety and security

As our user numbers grow, it is likely we will become a lucrative target for spammers and hackers. To improve the security of your account and to prevent spam, abuse, and other violations of our Terms of Service, we may collect metadata such as your IP address, devices you've used, history of username changes, etc. If collected, this metadata will be kept for 12 months maximum.
