Doorluck Inc. (“Doorluck”, “we”, “us”, “our”) allows users to create and enter promotions online.
Given the nature of our business, it is primordial that one understands its implications before using our service.
Before diving into the topics listed above, let's define two groups of visitors that we think represent the majority of Doorluck's user base.
Organizers are users who actively create, manage and market promotions through Doorluck. They can be individuals, businesses or organizations.
Participants are users who willingly consent to enter and participate in promotions hosted on Doorluck. These promotions, unless stated otherwise, are sponsored (created) by organizers.
Users can fall under one or both of these categories. Please note that participants are not allowed to enter in promotions they have organized.
On Doorluck, we colllect information to provide a personalized and always improving user experience. Information collection occurs upon many user generated events such as:
All actions aforementioned require a user's explicit consent to our terms of service, which are agreed upon registration. For analytics and security purposes, we also collect data automatically by monitoring users, registered or not (website visitors). The collection of such information is done through a mixture of in house programs and third party software vendors like Google Analytics. These programs are used in the optic of providing great user experience and are believed to be necessary to attain this objective.
We dot not send user information to any third party without a user's explicit consent. Therefore, personal data obtained by an organizer from a participant will always be done so with the participant consenting to share his information by clicking a link or filling out a form. In this case, the very act of entering a promotion would give Doorluck the permission to obtain information from a participant, store it onto its servers and then relay it to the organizer. In other words, when entering a promotion, participant information is saved into our database to assure software integrity and provide good functionality. We will under no circumstance, share information that has not been entered manually by the participant himself or to another third party not implicated in the process.
User data integrity and protection of personal information is a priority at Doorluck. Therefore, we believe that we are taking the necessary steps in order to keep your data safe. Although no technology is guarateed to be 100% secure, we do use data-encryption algorithms and keep personal information stored locally (on the servers) to a minimum. Technologies such as SSL, short for Secure Sockets Layer are used for most requests, including registering users and processing credit card payments. Billing information such as card numbers, expiration dates and CVV are not stored locally. These are rather saved into a credit card vault through our payment gateway partners for PCI compliance.
Cookies are small bits of data that can be stored on a user's web browser and retrieved at a later time by a web server. They are normally used to preserve state between requests as the protocol used on the Internet, HTTP, is a stateless one. All requests made between a web server and a client (usually a web browser) are treated separately, even if/when made by the same user. Cookies are, in other words, an attempt which tries to enhance the HTTP protocol. They are useful to accomplish certain tasks such as: 1) remembering when a user is logged in, 2) tracking and monitoring user activity, 3) storing information temporarily, etc. For a more in depth definition of cookies, please visit this definition provided by Wikipedia.
HTTP cookies are essential to Doorluck' software architecture. We use them for tasks like:
Keep in mind that we do not track a user once he has left our website. The information obtained and stored with cookies is restricted to be used only by Doorluck Inc. and its subsidiaries.
Doorluck is not directed to children under 13 years of age. We do not advertise, market nor encourage this group of minors to sign up for Doorluck. We urge you to report any such incident, should you become aware that a minor under 13 is using our service.
