Who We Are
Our policies reflect our believe that all humans have personal data rights and deserve data dignity. This stance includes creating commercial and legal symmetry between all network participants (“You” or the “Producer”). Our services allow You to take control of your content and personal data and to enter into agreements where You can earn money and rewards for licensing your content and data to third parties.
While DataLucent welcomes the advent of such agential technologies, this document will serve as a placeholder policy governing how DataLucent intends to honor its commitments to protect and preserve your privacy. As spelled out further below, our overarching intention remains the same: to collect from you only what data is absolutely necessary to facilitate your use of our services, and otherwise never to share that data with others absent your express consent.

Every Producer has the right to own and control their content and personal data through a personal data account (“Data Account”) that provides you alone with full control over the data in your Data Account. To create a Data Account with us you need to complete a two-step process:
- First, you need to access a social media account that you control and download your data to a device you own and control. We refer to this as “Step One.”
- Second, you register with us and we create an account on your behalf that allows you to compile and license your data to DataLucent and our partners. We refer to this as “Step Two.”
If you do not complete Step Two, DataLucent never has access to any of the data you download to your device. All data that you upload via the Service in Step Two is anonymized, encrypted, and secured on your behalf.
We (or our partners) then provide tools that allow each Producer to populate their data account with compilations of data they want to control and secure like online content, preferences, and information from social networks (collectively, the “Producer Data”).
You own and have full control over any Producer Data and your Data Account.
You have the following rights. Please note we may have lawful reasons to deny requests related to the rights below:
- The right to be informed: You have the right to be informed of our purposes for processing your personal data, our retention periods for that personal data, and who it will be shared with.
- The right of access: You have the right to access your personal data and supplementary information to allow you to be aware of and verify the lawfulness of the processing.
- The right to rectification: You have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified or completed if it is incomplete.
- The right to erasure: You have the right to have your personal data erased from our systems.
- The right to restrict processing: You have the right to request the restriction or suppression of your personal data.
- The right to data portability: You have the right to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services.
- The right to object: You have the right to object to processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling); direct marketing (including profiling); and processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling: You have rights related to automated decision making any profiling. Please note that the Company does not make any such automated decision making or profiling.

When you request cancellation of your account, your personally identifiable information will be deleted, including but not limited your email address, name, and photo(s) unless you also request an archival copy of your data. Archival copies of your account information that exist within our back-up system will be deleted in accordance with our normal back-up expiration schedule.
