FlyWire.ai (“FlyWire” or the “Site”) respects and protects the privacy of your personal data. This notice contains information about how and why FlyWire collects your personal data and what we do with that information.
If you are a professional scientist, we request your real name, email address, institution, city, lab head name, and research interests, and will consider this information “Community Data”, to be shared among FlyWire users for purposes including communication and collaboration. If you are not a scientist, you may choose to volunteer your real name for credit attribution, in which case the information will be treated as community data. Cell edits within FlyWire are not considered Community Data, and are openly visible to all users. Cells marked for public release outside FlyWire will be associated with the names of users who contributed to those reconstructions, for credit attribution, which will not be considered Personal Data.
FlyWire may collect personal data about you, including your name, email address, IP Address, URL requests (including time, method, and status code), URL that referred you to the Site, number of bytes transferred, web browser, operating system, and hardware platform. Cell edits within FlyWire are not considered Personal Data, and are openly visible to all users.
The personal data that FlyWire holds about you is obtained from a number of sources including information you supply at the time of registration, site usage statistics, and the FlyWire Forum. FlyWire reserves the right to record communications on the FlyWire Forum. These may be made public, omitting your personal information.
Our primary reasons for collecting and using Community and Personal Data include, but are not limited to, facilitating collaboration between you and other users, helping users conduct scientific research, assessing site usage, improving the Site, mediating between users, and granting credit for work done. When you use FlyWire, you agree that we can process Community Data and your Personal Data for administrative and collaborative purposes.
In certain circumstances, personal data may be transferred to countries outside of the United States, including countries which may not have data protection laws that offer the same protections as your home country. Examples of circumstances when personal data may be transferred outside the U.S. include:
The European Commission has produced a list of countries which, according to the Commission, have adequate data protection rules. The list can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international- transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm.
If the country that we are sending your information to is not on the list, or is not a country within the EEA (which means the EU, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland), then it might not have the same level of protection for personal data as the EU provides.
Upon request, we will provide you with additional information about the safeguards which FlyWire has in place outside of this privacy notice. If you have any questions about the safeguards that are in place, please contact email@example.com.
Your name, email address, institution, city, lab head, research interests, and FlyWire edits will be visible to other FlyWire users. Your name (but not your email address) may also appear in publications, presentations, promotional materials, and other locations outside the Site. Community and Personal Data associated with your login email or your IP address will not be disclosed to parties outside of the FlyWire community except in very limited circumstances, including sharing:
FlyWire will not collect personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, genetic information, health information, or information about sex life or orientation.
We keep your Community and Personal Data for as long as we need to in order to grant you credit for your work, and allow your contributions to the shared dataset to be used for research purposes by others.
We may keep certain personal data indefinitely for research or statistical purposes.
We will also keep your personal data for as long as necessary to comply with applicable record retention laws and obligations.
This notice complies with the European Union’s (“EU’s”) General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). This regulation may apply to the processing of personal information that you provide FlyWire while you are in the EU, but it does not apply to information that you provide while you are in the U.S..
This section contains information about the legal bases that we are relying on, for purposes of the GDPR, when processing your Community and Personal Data.
Absent overriding, countervailing interests, FlyWire may process your Community and Personal Data for its legitimate interests. Specifically, FlyWire has a legitimate interest in:
Ensuring that all relevant legal obligations of Princeton University are complied with.
If you object to FlyWire using your Community and Personal Data in a particular situation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
FlyWire may process your Community and Personal Data in order to comply with a legal obligation. For example, we may have to disclose your information to third parties such as the courts, local authorities, or law enforcement where legally obliged to do so.
FlyWire may need to process your Community and Personal Data to protect your vital interests, or someone else’s, for example to prevent someone from being seriously harmed or injured.
FlyWire is acting in the public interest when providing a collaborative platform for scientists and members of the public, and we may process your Community and Personal Data in connection with that public interest.
Under GDPR, subject to certain limitations and conditions, you have the following rights with regards to the processing of your data:
