GENERAL

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is enforceable from 25 May 2018, provides new rights to individuals and requires organisations to provide information about their processing in a clear and transparent way. We have published this updated Privacy Statement to take into account new requirements and to explain how we collect, store and use personal data.

Onalytica Ltd is a social media data analytics company specialised in analysing online influence and content.

This Privacy Policy sets out how Onalytica uses and protects personal data. The personal data we have is either gathered from public online sources to build our influencer database or provided by individuals who wish to subscribe to our newsletters or provided by individuals who wish to use our software.

Onalytica is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide personal data when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Influencers in our Database

We collect openly sourced data on individuals to determine if they are influential online on a range of topics and provide a contextual ranking of their influence on those topics. We may include your data in the context of being an influencer in our database. The data we collect varies depending on the source of the data, what the source or platform chooses to make available to us, plus what you choose to make available. It could include the following:

  • your name, username, handle, or other identifier;
  • the content of the information you have published via that name, username, handle, or other identifier, including comments, expressions, opinions, posts, etc.;
  • your profile picture or other images or videos that you post or interact with;
  • your job title or profession or category of profession
  • your interests;
  • your location;
  • your gender; and
  • any other information you publish on an Internet website we crawl or on a third-party platform that provides us with data.

Where data is sourced via a social network we do so via official APIs in accordance with the privacy policy and terms of use of that network. Where data is sourced via a blog or webpage we do so via our own web scraping technology. We do not store any private data as part of your influencer profile and do not use your data to create a profile of you showing any sensitive data such as political or religious beliefs, sexual orientation, health or medical conditions, marital or family status.

In addition to sharing your data with our customers, we may share your data with our data partners or include your influencer profile in our marketing material.

If an individual is a customer or newsletter subscriber and an influencer in our influencer database personal data is not shared between these profiles and the records are kept separate. Information submitted to us in the context of a user or newsletter subscriber is not used to supplement data we have on the influencer profile record unless explicit consent is given to do so.
