We may also use such technologies to collect information when you interact with services we offer through third-party brand partners.

What does Fabrica Collective do with the information?

We strongly believe in both minimising the data we collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that for which we have been given permission, as necessary to deliver the Services you interact with, and where we might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.
We process information (either personally-identifiable or not) we collect, that has either been provided directly or in-directly by you or automatically collected for certain business legitimate interests which may include some or all of the following:
Personal Information that you supply to us:
We receive and hold any information you enter on our Service or supply to us in any other way to help personalise the service, and improve our offerings. The categories of Personal Information gathered may include your name, email address, phone number, device information, and browser information. The Personal Information you supply is employed for such ends as: enabling you to interact with us, making improvements to the Service, customizing the promotions and content you see, and communicating with you regarding special offers and new components or aspects of the Service. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to modify the Service to your requirements, to confirm the effectiveness and consumer appeal of our Service, and to originate new products, services, features, and functions.
Automatic Collection of Personal Information:
We collect and hold certain categories of information whenever you interact with our Service. Fabrica Collective automatically collects and records cookie information, the information you requested, and the information delivered to you. Generally, our Service automatically collects usage information, such as the quantity and frequency of visitors. Fabrica Collective uses this information in aggregate form only for statistical purposes, and not in a way that could identify you personally. This category of aggregate information allows us to determine, among other things, how frequently users employ elements of the Service so that we can ensure the Service remains as broadly appealing as possible.
Message Communications:
We may be notified when you open an email from Fabrica Collective. Fabrica Collective employs this notification to assist us in making emails more relevant, informative, interesting and useful and to improve the Service.

We use the information provided by these tools to improve our Services. These tools place persistent cookies in your browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our website. Each cookie cannot be used by anyone other than the service provider (e.g. Google for Google Analytics). The information collected from the cookie may be transmitted to and stored by these service partners on servers in a country other than the country in which you reside. Though information collected does not include personal data such as name, address, etc., the information collected is used and shared by these service provider in accordance with their individual privacy policies. You can control the technologies we use by managing your settings through our Cookie Policy or the “cookie banners” that may be presented (depending on URL of website visited) when you first visit our web pages, or by utilising settings in your browser or third-party tools. Please bear in mind that refusing or deleting some cookies may make it impossible for us to provide our Services to you.

We also commit to constantly re-evaluating our stances and decisions when it comes to Legitimate Interests and anything else in this policy.

How does your personal information get shared when you use the service?

The Service is principally structured to assist you in receiving requested content, or accessing site features.

The site permits you to connect with certain third party services (e.g., Twitter, Facebook and other similar services). When you share information to such third party services, this information passes beyond the control of Fabrica Collective and is governed by the privacy policies and user terms of such third parties.

Will personal information be shared with others?

Personal Information about our users is a key component of our business. We do not rent or sell your Personal Information on an individualized, personally-identifiable basis to anyone. We may share your Personal Information only as set out below:
We use a number of third party services to help us deliver our service– for example, our site servers are backed up using a third party service called InMotion Hosting.

We have identified these services in full below; we have verified that these third party services are GDPR compliant (or are working towards GDPR compliance), and are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (or are working towards certification) where these organisations are based outside of the EU.

Third party services acting on our behalf:
The following table outlines the personal data we collect and for what purpose. The table also outlines the third parties, the data that is processed by or shared with, and how long the data is stored for.
We have either signed or are in the process of signing Data Protection Addendums with each of their Third Parties.

We may make use of these business entities to undertake tasks or deliver features for us and therefore have a requirement to share your information with them in order to supply goods or services to you. Unless we advise you otherwise, such third parties have no rights to employ the Personal Information that we share with them over or above what is necessary to assist us. You hereby agree that Fabrica Collective may share Personal Information for these ends.
