PRIVACY POLICY

Effective Date: 2/28/18

Remote Mediterranean is a project of the Over the Wall Fund (“OTWF”), a California corporation. OTWF respects the privacy of our users of remotemed.co and other OTWF websites (the “Websites”). We are committed to informing you about how we collect, use, and share Personal Information (as defined below) about you which is submitted by you or on your behalf. This Privacy Policy describes our practices with respect to the information we collect from or about our users in connection with the Websites. 

PERSONAL INFORMATION

OTWF processes both Personal Information and Other Information about its users through their use of and in connection with the Websites. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, (i) “Personal Information” is information relating to a person who is identified in that data or who is, together with other data, identifiable; and (ii) “Other Information” is any additional information that OTWF collects about our users that is not Personal Information.

You may give us your Personal Information directly: for example, when you correspond with us, or apply for membership. The Personal Information you give us directly may include your name, address, email address, social media details, contact details, emergency contact details, billing information, photos, videos, voice recordings and information about your family and friends. It may also include the information provided in your application forms such as employment history and current employment details, income details, travel plans, personal, and professional goals, languages, nationality and residency, passport details, background check, and identity check details (including details of any criminal offenses), health data, details of personal interests, accommodation preferences and insurance details.

 

We may combine Personal Information collected through the Websites with Other Information that we or third parties collect about you in other contexts, such as our communications with you via email, phone, or otherwise or your customer service records and travel details. To the extent Other Information is combined with Personal Information, we will treat all such information as Personal Information, and protect it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

OTWF may use the information that we collect from you:

(1) To provide services, to process payments, and to provide customer support. We may also use the information we collect from you: to personalize user's experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content in which you are most interested; to improve our Websites; to allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests; to administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature; to quickly process your transactions; to send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services; and to follow up with you after correspondence. 

(2) To contact you. Subject to applicable law, we or our third-party service and business providers may send you communications. Such communications may include, but are not limited to: notifications about the Websites and OTWF services, communications about our services, and promotions. These types of communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers. By using the Websites, you consent to the receipt of such communications and marketing information.

(3) For legal purposes. We may use and share Personal Information for legal purposes, including as described below in the section titled “How We Share Information with Third Parties” (including the transfer of such Personal Information to third parties in countries outside your country of residence where data protection laws may be less adequate compared to your own country’s data protection laws).

(4) For our own internal business purposes. We may use Other Information to help us efficiently operate OTWF and the Websites, to count and recognize visitors to the Websites, to enable certain features on the Websites, and for other purposes related to managing our business.

THIRD PARTIES​

Subject to applicable law, we may share your Personal Information and Other Information:

(1) With partners and other third-party service providers. This may be necessary to operate OTWF trips and the Websites, including processing your transactions and supporting your activities on a OTWF trip or the Websites.

(2) With third parties through their websites. The Websites may enable you to share information directly on or through websites or online services operated by third parties. For example, the Websites may contain links to third-party websites. If you choose to browse such websites, you may disclose your Personal Information to those third-party websites. OTWF is not liable for the content or action of such third-party websites.  

(3) For legal purposes. We may disclose your Personal Information and Other Information for OTWF’s legitimate business interests or to comply with applicable law, investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our terms and conditions, or to cooperate with regulatory authorities or law enforcement, to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights or defend against legal claims.​

OUR SECURITY PRECAUTIONS

OTWF uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification or deletion but no security program can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, OTWF cannot guarantee the security of any information obtained or processed by OTWF or its service providers, and you use the Websites at your own risk.

YOUR RIGHTS

You may, under applicable law, have the right to ask us not to process your Personal Information for marketing purposes. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from OTWF, please follow the opt-out instructions contained in each such communication or any time by contacting us at info@remotemed.co. Please note that you may not be able to opt-out of certain non-marketing communications about your account or communications that are reasonably necessary to provide services to you, and that opting-out may impact your use of the Websites or may limit OTWF’s ability to provide services to you.

ACCESSING AND EDITING YOUR INFORMATION

OTWF provides you with the ability to view, update, access, edit and correct your Personal Information by contacting our team at info@remotemed.co. You may have additional rights under applicable law to access information we hold or share about you but any access request may be subject to a reasonable fee, to the extent permissible under applicable law, to meet our costs in providing you with details of such information.   

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

The Websites and OTWF trips are designed for adults only and are not available to children (i.e. persons who are under 18 years of age). By becoming a user, you represent and warrant that you are an adult and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and abide by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.
