Consensus connects communities through collaboration and decision-making. Any registered user can participate in a brainstorming event by proposing ideas and by rating, comparing, and giving feedback on existing ideas.
Basic Account Information: When you create or reconfigure a Consensus account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, password, and email address. In some cases, you may be required to provide your phone number if required by your community, for example, to prevent spam, fraud, or abuse.
Additional Information: We use your email address to send you notifications for the brainstorming event you are participating in. You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from Consensus. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your Consensus account to your account on another service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Ideas, Feedback, Comparison, and Rating: Our Services are primarily designed to help connect communities through collaboration and decision-making. When you participate in a brainstorming event, ideas and feedback you submit are displayed to members of your community. Aggregate statistics of comparisons and rating information are also displayed to members of your community. If the community is public, as decided by the community organizers, then the ideas and feedback you submit as well as aggregate statistics of comparisons and rating information are displayed to the public.
Location Information: We may use data from your device to determine location, for example, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as to generate aggregate analytics of event engagement and to filter for location specific events.
Third-Parties: Consensus uses a variety of third-party services to help us understand and improve the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address.
Transfer of information: We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting research, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
