When you do that, the information you give us has to be accurate and complete. If you don’t follow these rules, we may cancel your account. You’re responsible for all the activity on your account, and for keeping your password confidential.

We expect all of users to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Don’t do any of these things on the Site:
HumanIPO doesn’t own content you submit to us (your “Content”). But we do need certain licenses from you in order to perform our Services. When you submit a campaign for review, or launch a campaign, you agree to these terms:
You can terminate your account at any time through your account settings. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes. All provisions of this agreement survive termination of an account, including our rights regarding any content you’ve already submitted to the Site. (For instance, if you’ve launched a campaign, deleting your account will not automatically remove the campaign from the Site.) You can contact us at [email protected] for additional information or to request campaign/profile page deletion (this is not available in all circumstances).

This Terms of Serivce was last updated on March 5th, 2020.
We may update this Policy from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. New versions of this Policy will never apply retroactively — we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using HumanIPO after a change, that means you accept this Policy.
In order for you to create an account on HumanIPO and use our Services, we need to collect and process certain information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:
You may decline to provide us with your information. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services. You may pledge to a issuer as a guest by providing only an email address.
We use the information we collect for the following purposes:
Data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful bases include:
For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep the Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so. We analyze how users interact with our Site so we can understand better what elements of the design are working well and which are not working so well. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users.
When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on HumanIPO, containing your username, the date the account was created, and a list of campaigns you have backed or launched. By default, your profile is private and you can choose to make it public in your account settings. Your username appears with the comments you post and messages you send on HumanIPO and, if your profile is set to public, people can click your username to view it. If you make your profile public, others will be able to see the following things:
Issuers are also asked to verify their identities before launching a campaign. Once this has been done, the issuer’s Verified Name will be publicly displayed on their account profile.
The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:
We may share your information with certain trusted third-party services to help us provide, improve, promote, or protect HumanIPO’s Services (like when we partner with payment processors, or use services that help us manage our ads on other sites). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the HumanIPO Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We may also share information that’s aggregated and anonymized in a way that it doesn’t directly identify you.
We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect HumanIPO’s legal rights, property, or the safety of HumanIPO, its employees, users, or others.
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt in to any marketing communications we send.
We will send you email relating to your transactions on HumanIPO. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences. We’ll also send you service-related announcements when it’s necessary to do so.
We take security seriously, and the security of your personal data is important to us. We follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and maintain, including using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt information as it travels over the internet. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so HumanIPO cannot guarantee its absolute security. Your account information is protected by a password, which you should choose carefully and keep secure.
We have a Security Incident Response Team (SIRT) and protocol in place in the event of a data breach. We encourage the responsible disclosure of vulnerabilities of our Services by emailing [email protected]
