General Conditions of Use of the Citizen web-app of Createlli

1. General

These conditions are mandatory to be accepted by all users of the Citizen web-app of Createlli. This is valid for all further listed conditions.

These conditions are the same for all users, and no exceptions are granted to the conditions of use. This is to preserve the transparency to everyone collaborating through Citizen of Createlli.

Createlli reserves the right to modify the general conditions of use at any point, without a previous notification, both in the contents of the website and in the General Conditions of Use.

Such modifications may be made through the website in any admissible way, and will be mandatory during the time they are published on the web, until they are modified by the subsequent ones. Users will be notified when the conditions are changed.

2. Rights and limitations to use

The citizen web application has 3 types of users:

PROJECT MANAGERS: these are users who are involved in managing a participation project; for example staff of a city or project managers of a participation project. They are further referred to as 'PROJECT MANAGERS'

USERS: users who participate in a project. They are typically invited to give their opinions, ideas, etc. They are further referred to as 'USERS'.

We distinct:

Anonymous users – In some cases, users are allowed to participate 'anonymously', meaning they do not leave their email address or no information that allows Createlli or project managers to identify the users..

Identified users – In most cases users are invited to provide their email address.. Users who do this are called ‘identified users’. We link a users ID ad password to their email address. Identification allows users to participate more actively in projects. It gives other users and project managers also more trust and transparency, because they can identify who participates.

CREATELLI: users who are system administrators of the Createlli team. They are further referred as 'Createlli'.

Users are responsible for all action with their user account. They are responsible to keep their user ID and password confidential and agree to inform Createlli as soon as possible if they suspect unauthorized use of thier user account or notice their user account was accessed in an unauthorized way.

Data Privacy and Confidentiality of your user information

We try to balance your right for protection of your privacy, with your right to know who else participates in projects and with the need of the project managers to understand the needs and opinions of all users, to answer to specific issues or questions you raise and to invite you for participation activities that are interesting for the project or for you.

In order to use some of the services offered on this website, users must provide Createlli certain personal data, like email and in some cases name, address, gender, age and other information that is important for the projects.

Therefore Createlli undertakes to respect the confidentiality of such data as required in the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union, effective since 25 May 2018).

What happens with your information? Information about you, your contributions and your opinions are only to be used in the context of the project for which it was shared, or for related projects or to invite users to similar projects, to improve the operation of city.createlli.com, or to improve the functionality of Citizen or in anonymized way in reports to improve participation in general.

No user information or any other information shall be used by Createlli or any user out of this context or for commercial or marketing purposes to sell other products or services.

For details about who has access and why we collect certain personal data, please refer to the table below.

How long do we keep your data? We keep the information and results of participation projects for a long time, because the results of a consultation or a map with issues and proposals can often be very interesting even years later, when a new related project  is conducted in the same area (for example a mobility project). Instead of asking then again the same questions, we prefer to build further on what you have shared with us previously. This means that in reality we keep information typically until the citizen who shared it or the government or client for whom the information was collected, explicitly asked us to delete the information.

To whom do we pass on your data? To no one, except the responsible organization for the project for whom the data is collected. The project responsible organization is clearly indicated for each project. Of course, these organisations are also bound by the GDPR legislation and can only use your data in the context of the project and related projects.

How can you see your information, correct it or have it removed? You can certainly exercise your right to access, rectify, cancel and oppose to the processing of your personal data.

For your convenience, you can do this by writing an email to support@createlli.com.

As long as you don’t tell us otherwise, we understand that your data has not been modified, that you agree to notify us any variation of it, and that we have your consent to use your data for the purposes mentioned below:
