FoundME can not be held liable for any damage caused by an error and / or negligence on the part of employees and / or subcontractors of FoundME, fraudulent forgery of data after unlawful intrusion into the website. This website may contain hyperlinks to websites or to web pages of third parties and other parties, or refer to them in a different way. FoundME has no control over the content or other characteristics of these websites or web pages and is in no way liable for their content or characteristics. The placement of links by FoundME in no way implies an implicit approval of the content of these websites or web pages. You can create a hyperlink to the homepage of FoundME on your own website.

FoundME respects the provisions of the Privacy Act of 08/12/1992 and the Electronic Commerce Act of 11/03/2003 in the collection and processing of personal data. FoundME has also further adapted its way of processing to the GDPR that will take effect on 25 May 2018.
Privacy is a top priority for FoundME. For this reason we give users the possibility to make public elements of their profile completely invisible. This concerns the profile photo, skills, offers, location and click through to the complete profile. In addition, the user can also choose not to include data in the profiling that is shared with Organization pages.
For the full explanation we refer to the Privacy Guidelines
Consistent with the Privacy Guidelines, FoundME has chosen not to work with identifiable user data at any time. Users are categorized on the basis of their enterprise phase, sector, skills, age category, location and platform use. This information is used to optimize our platform operation and the user experience. As stated in the Privacy Guidelines, the user can choose to disable this Profiling so that the Organization Page Statistics do not take your Profile into account. Because the operation of the FoundME platform depends strongly on this Profiling, you can not turn this off for the entire platform.
For the full explanation of your data, we refer to the Privacy Guidelines
You, the User, are the owner of all content and information you place on FoundME and you can use the privacy settings to determine how the content and information is shared. The following provisions also apply: for content subject to intellectual property rights, such as photos and videos, you specifically grant us the following consent with due observance of your privacy settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, licensable, royalty-free and worldwide license for the use of IP content that you place on or in connection with FoundME (IE license).

We undertake to review your appeal as a matter of priority and remove the material if necessary. The IE license ends when you delete your IP content or account unless you have the content shared with others and they did not remove the content. When you delete IE content, it will be deleted in a way similar to the emptying of the trash can on a computer. However, you understand that deleted content may remain in backup for a reasonable amount of time (but is not available to others). Publishing content or information with the Public setting means that everyone, excluding people outside of FoundME, has permission to view and use that information and associate it with you (ie name, profile photo, location & specialties). We always appreciate it when you give feedback or other suggestions about FoundME, but please note that we can use this information without any obligation to reward you for this (just as you do not have an obligation to offer it).
