PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for using

Muctoo.org!

Our mission is to help you discover integration projects and  activities happening around you. To do that, we show you posted  projects that may be of interest to you, based on the information we collect from educational and other types of institutions. We only use such information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so.


We prepared this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. Some of the concepts below may be a appear technical, we have provided simpler explanations for your understanding. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy.

We collect information in a few different ways:

1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

When you sign up for or use MUCT, you give us certain information voluntarily. This includes your name, email address, phone number, profile photo, address, and any other information you give us.

If you link your Facebook or Google account to MUCT, we also get information from those accounts (such as your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services depends on your settings and their privacy policies, so please check what those are.

2. We also get technical information when you use MUCT

Whenever you use any website, mobile application or other internet service, certain information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use MUCT. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

  • Log data. When you use MUCT, the servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address, the address of and activity on websites you visit that incorporate MUCT features like searches, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used MUCT, cookie data and device data.

  • Cookie data.  We also use “cookies” (small text files sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your MUCT account or your browser) or similar technologies to capture log data. When we use cookies or other similar technologies, we use session cookies (that last until you close your browser) or persistent cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we use cookies to store your language preferences or other settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit MUCT. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your MUCT account (including information about you, such as the email address you gave us) and other cookies are not. For more detailed information about how we use cookies, please review our Cookies Policy.

What we do with the info we collect:

We use the information we collect to provide the Service to you. We commit to showing you content that’s relevant, interesting and useful to you. In order to do that, it’s necessary for us to use your information to: 

  • Identify you when you login to MUCT, and post your projects and events.

  • Report technical issues or make suggestions on how we can improve on our site.

  • Leave an offline message or inquiry for the MUCT team.

In addition and for similar reasons, we have a legitimate interest in using your information in these ways. It is also fundamental to the nature of the Service we provide. In short, it’s necessary for us to do these things in order to make the Service relevant, interesting and useful to you like we promised, and it’s in both of our interests for us to do that.

We also have a legitimate interest to improve MUCT, maintain our relationship with you, and protect users. We both benefit when we use your information to: 

  • Verify legitimacy of the projects and events you have posted. for example, knowing your name, email, where you are from, what school you attend and what you do will help us trace project claims.

  • To enable you view projects belonging to you in the dashboard section of the site.

  • Conduct analytics on who is using MUCT and what they are doing. For example, by logging what kind of projects or events people are most interested in and what features on MUCT are mostly used so we can understand the user experience on the site.

  • Improve MUCT and offer new features.

  • Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like reviews, publish, updates or comments, happens on your projects or events) and news by email. For example, we send weekly updates that include information you may like. You can decide to stop getting these notifications by simply unsubscribing or contacting us by email .

  • Work with law enforcement and keep MUCT safe. We may get requests for account information from law enforcement authorities like the police or courts.

We’ll also rely on your consent where we use cookies to:

  • Identify you across different browser sessions. This means if you log into MUCT from your phone (or any device), we'll remember that you're you and you won't need to enter your login details each time you visit MUCT.

To find out more about how we use cookies, and your choices about how we use them, please see our Cookies Policy.

Transferring your information:

MUCT will be a worldwide service. By using MUCT, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including the Netherlands, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be the same as in your home country. We use the Wix platform to save data and information collected and they have data servers distribution across the globe mostly in the United states.

We take additional measures when information is transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA). We also rely on European Commission adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, for data transfers to countries outside the EEA. Please read more on the Wix Policy

Choices you have about your info:

Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. If you have a MUCT account, many of the choices you have on MUCT are built directly into MUCT or your settings. For example, you can:

  • Edit projects and events posted on MUCT by you.

  • Close your account at any time by emailing the support team. When you close your account, we’ll deactivate it and remove all your projects and events posted.

  • The browser you use lets you control cookies or other types of local data storage.

  • Your mobile device lets you choose how and whether your location,  and other data is shared with us.

To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by your device or software provider.

How and when we share information:

Anyone can see projects and events you create and including the contact information for each projects and event. . Some of the ways we use your project and event information require us to share information with third parties like Weglot (an automated language translation app), so we can provide your MUCT experience, make sure our customization is effective and comply with laws that apply to us. We share your information with:

  • Law enforcement agencies or government agencies. We only share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or MUCT; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

How long we keep your information:

We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide MUCT to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you. 

Our policy on children’s information:

Children under 13 are not allowed to use MUCT. If you are based in the EEA you may only use MUCT if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country or if verifiable parental consent for your use of MUCT has been provided to us. If you are a parent and you learn that your child is using MUCT and you don't want them to, please contact us.

Your options:

You have options in relation to the information that we have about you described below. To exercise these options, please contact us. If you're an EEA user, you can:

  • Access the information we hold about you. We'll usually share this with you within 30 days of you asking us for it.

  • Have your information corrected or deleted. You can update your information in your settings. If you have problems updating the information or if you would like us to delete it, contact us.

  • Object to us processing your information. You can ask us to stop using your information, including when we use your information to send you emails. If you opt out of receiving marketing messages from us, we may still send you newsletters and updates about your account and our activities. We only send you emails if you've agreed to it, but if you'd rather we don't, you can easily unsubscribe at any time.

  • Have the information you provided to us sent to another organization, where we hold this information with your consent or for the performance of a contract with you, where it's technically feasible.

  • Complain to a regulator. If you're based in the EEA and think that we haven't complied with data protection laws, you have a right to lodge a complaint with us or with your local supervisory authority.

We may change this policy from time to time and if we do, we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use MUCT after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or get your consent, as required by law.
