GENERAL
ATAHUB.ORG is a collaborative social sharing network open to all (hereafter referred to as the “User”
or “Users”). Every User expressly accepts the Terms and Conditions (“TAC”) as stated hereafter.
The TAC defines the terms and conditions of use of the services as offered by “ATAHUB” on the
website ATAHUB.ORG (rights, obligations, restrictions and responsibilities related to the deliberate,
accidental, regular or intermittent access to ATAHUB.ORG).
The TAC rules in particular the relationship between ATAHUB and the Users of ATAHUB.ORG. When
becoming a User or by using ATAHUB.ORG, the Users agree to the TAC.
Regarding ATAHUB.ORG operating mode, the Users may refer to the specific section “ATAHUB.ORG
tutorial and guidelines”).
The TAC is susceptible to updates at all times. The Users shall take regular notice of the updates.
DEFINITION OF SERVICES PROPOSED BY ATAHUB
ATAHUB.ORG is a collaborative social network that offers electronic content to its Users as well as to a
Private Company, Public or Private Foundation / Organization (Inclusive of non-profit,
nongovernmental or otherwise involved in charity, research, public service, or humanitarian action,
hereafter referred to as the “Group / Groups”) that wish to be part of ATAHUB.ORG.
The Users can opt for free or paid membership (see “General Terms of Payment”).
Whether free or paid, a membership grants the subscriber exposure, services, and management tools
which give him/her access to specific services and benefits.
However, individual Users that do not represent a Group on the account used or created are opt from
any payment and have access to ATAHUB services for free. The purpose of ATAHUB is to better link
individual Users to volunteer opportunities and events presented and organized by “Groups”.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND DATA USE POLICY
3.1 COMPILATION OF DATA
For all practical purposes relating to the type of platform that it operates and services that it provides,
as well as to the good processing and constant improvement of ATAHUB.ORG, ATAHUB collects data
(including personal data) which is comprised of information, contents (photos, videos, writings, etc.)
and other similar elements (hereafter referred to as «Data»).
3.2 DATA PRIVACY POLICY
Any and every compilation and use of Data on ATAHUB.ORG is subject to ATAHUB’s Data Privacy
Policy («DPP»).
3.3 COMPILATION, PROCESSING AND SHARING OF DATA
The present section contains the DPP and describes the conditions in which ATAHUB collects,
processes and shares the Data.
ATAHUB compiles the Data as collected through ATAHUB.ORG. By agreeing to the TAC and/or by
interacting with ATAHUB.ORG, each User grants ATAHUB permission to collect, transfer, handle,
conserve, disclose and otherwise process her/his Data in compliance with the DPP as hereafter stated.
3.4 COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF DATA UPON SUBSCRIPTION
When subscribing to ATAHUB.ORG, the Individual User provides ATAHUB with Data such as her/his
surname, name, date of birth, country of residence and e-mail address.
This Data, along with any additional information such as the date of subscription to ATAHUB.ORG or a
profile picture, is made accessible and only seen by other Group Users in which an individual interacts
with. Group User profiles however will be public for all to view.
3.5 DATA POSTED ON ATAHUB.ORG BY THE USERS
Data such as:
- A User’s accounts data, The names and personal information of the User and other Users followed
by the Groups is only visible and may be seen by other Groups when applying for a Membership or an
Event. Otherwise data is hidden by the system.
Individual Users can not follow or interact with other Individual Users by following or messaging
unless User is a Member or part of an Event and is contacted by an Assigned Coordinator with a Task
or message from a Group in relevance to a Task or Event.
The User is responsible for all Data that she/he publishes on ATAHUB.ORG and, by posting this Data
on ATAHUB.ORG, the User grants ATAHUB a free and worldwide non-exclusive, transferable,
sub-licensable, license for the use of this Data.
This license terminates when the User deletes her/his Data or her/his account according to the TAC.
Caution! When a User uses an application whose operating mode and terms and conditions are
particular and unrelated to ATAHUB (such as any other website linking to a social network), this
application is likely to request the User’s authorization to access her/his Data as well as the Data that
other Users have shared with her/him. Even though ATAHUB requires these applications to respect
the confidentiality of the Data, it is the consent given directly by the User to the application that
determines to what extent the application is free to keep process and transfer this Data. ATAHUB
cautions its Users and advises them to always read carefully the terms and conditions of the
applications they use.
When a User posts a video content on her/his Webpage, this video is automatically processed by an
outside technical device (such as 23 Video, YouTube, DailyMotion, or any other such device adopted
by ATAHUB.ORG at one point or another of its development) that has been adopted by ATAHUB.ORG
to post videos. Even though the given device’s logo never shows on ATAHUB.ORG, the User is aware
that her/his video content is being processed by that device. It is the User’s responsibility to inquire
about the data privacy policy of this video-sharing and broadcast website before putting her/his video
content online. ATAHUB shall by no means be held liable for the use by those devices of the content
without the User’s consent. The User can choose to address her/his video content to a restricted
circle of ATAHUB.ORG Users for a private disclosure, or to all ATAHUB.ORG Users for a public
disclosure. The User acknowledges that, in any way, the content is managed and processed by those
devices and not by ATAHUB, which again cannot be held liable for the use of the content by those
devices without the User’s consent.
When a User posts Data using the setting «All Users», or using the setting which specifies a particular
group she/he decides to share this Data with, this implies that she/he, in the first case, allows
everyone, including non ATAHUB.ORG users and, in the second case, allows only those who are part
of that particular group, to access this Data and to use it, but also to associate it with her/his personal
Data. Each User shall take this into account by every posting. Each User acknowledges that those
whom she/he is sharing Data with are likely to re-use it and, furthermore, post it on other websites.
The User therefore chooses carefully the Group / Groups whom she/he decides to interact with as
Data will be shared according to that interaction (Applying for Memberships, Joining Events, and
Following).
Users are free and welcome to submit comments and suggestions to ATAHUB. Each User understands
and accepts however that ATAHUB may use these comments and suggestions liability free, in
particular with regards to any financial compensation.
Notwithstanding any conflicting clause in the DPP, ATAHUB is entitled to keep or disclose Data if
deemed reasonably necessary to:
- Comply with a law, regulation or request from public authorities;
- Ensure the security of a person, react to fraud or breach of security, or comply with technical
requirements;
- Protect ATAHUB’s rights (in particular property rights) and ATAHUB’s legitimate interests.
3.6 DATA POSTED ON ATAHUB.ORG BY THE COMPANIES AND FOUNDATION AND / OR
ORGANIZATIONS
It is the nature of ATAHUB.ORG to serve as a communication and Data transmission platform between
the Group on the one hand, and the Individual “Users”, on the other hand, by offering space
(«Webpages») designed to post original, exclusive or non-exclusive Data (including photos, videos,
songs, writings, declarations, short stories, etc.).
Each User shall bear in mind that any Data posted on ATAHUB.ORG by a Personality “Group / Groups”
is protected by the Personality’s and/or Foundation and / or Organization’s as well as ATAHUB’s
intellectual property rights.
When a Personality and/or Foundation and / or Organization post(s) Data on ATAHUB.ORG, the
Personality and/or Foundation and / or Organization grant(s) ATAHUB, and therefore ATAHUB’S
Users, a free and worldwide non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, license for the use of the Data
within the framework and features and settings established by ATAHUB in order to facilitate Data
sharing between its Users.
However, as is the case with the Users’ Data posted on ATAHUB.ORG, the Group remain(s) the sole
owner(s) of their posted Data and may delete it at all time.
During the time when the Data of a Group remains posted on ATAHUB.ORG, this Data may be freely
shared on ATAHUB.ORG by all the Users who have access to ATAHUB.ORG, whilst remaining the
property of the Personality and/or the Foundation and / or Organization on the one hand, and of
ATAHUB on the other hand.
If and when this Data is shared on other websites than ATAHUB.ORG, it remains the exclusive
property of the Group concerned on the one hand and of ATAHUB and cannot therefore be posted on
other websites without the mention of origin «ATAHUB», along with ATAHUB’s logo. Whenever
possible, a special feature of ATAHUB.ORG shall prevent the transposition of any Data without the
mention of origin. This restriction is a necessary and non-negotiable condition for the use of
ATAHUB.ORG and any User who breaches this rule exposes her/himself to an immediate deletion of
her/his account, without further notice. Each User undertakes to respect this rule and not to take any
technical or other measures aiming at depriving the Data of the mention of origin.
Each User undertakes to share the Data as posted by the Group without modifying it in any way. The
User is not allowed to extract the Data from its original context nor is she or he to distort its meaning
and purpose. The User undertakes to use the Data as a whole, without paraphrasing, copying,
truncating or merging it with any other content and without using it in a way that could harm the
image or reputation of the Group concerned. Any User who breaches this rule exposes herself/himself
to the immediate deletion of her/his account without further notice.
3.7 COOKIES
Like many other websites, ATAHUB.ORG uses the cookies technology to collect Data and to improve
its services.
A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to the hard disk of the User’s computer. ATAHUB may
use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how Users interact with
ATAHUB.ORG, monitor aggregate usage by the Users and web traffic routing on ATAHUB.ORG, and
customize and improve ATAHUB.ORG.
Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. Users can change their browser settings.
However, some services may not function properly if cookies are disabled or refused.
3.8 ADVERTIZING AND OTHER COMMERCIAL CONTENTS POSTED BY ATAHUB
Development, maintenance, research and the implementation of new ideas and of ever-better quality
services, as well as the need for ATAHUB to achieve its technological and social goals imply constant
and significant investments and financing.
An important part of the financing comes from advertizing on ATAHUB.ORG.
ATAHUB is aware that this policy may not please all ATAHUB.ORG Users. At the same time, ATAHUB is
convinced that ATAHUB.ORG Users will understand that quality services depend on ATAHUB’s ability
to finance them.
In consideration of all the previous elements, ATAHUB has established as a goal to dedicate some of
its space to display advertizing in a way that is beneficial for Users as well as for advertisers. Users
therefore accept the following conditions:
Each User may change her/his confidentiality settings as to limit the way her/his Data is associated
with commercial, sponsored or other content (such as a brand she/he likes).
Each User grants ATAHUB the permission to use her/his Data, according to the TAC and to the limits
established by the User.
ATAHUB does not communicate Data to advertisers without the User’s express consent, which is
given by accepting the present TAC.
The User understands and accepts that ATAHUB cannot always identify commercial content as such.
User private data will not be shared with advertisers.
3.9 TRANSFER OF ACTIVITY
In the case that ATAHUB should go bankrupt or should be implied in a merger, acquisition,
reorganization or a sale of its assets, Users’ Data may be sold or transferred in the framework of such
an operation.
The obligations set out in the DPP will apply to the Users’ transferred Data.
3.10 PERSONAL DATA MODIFICATION
The User can modify her/his personal data by changing her/his account settings. The User whose
personal data is incorrect may require ATAHUB to rectify it.
3.11 DATA PRIVACY POLICY UPDATES
The DPP may be updated at all times by ATAHUB. The most recent version of the DPP rules the way
ATAHUB uses and processes the Data. On-going access or use of ATAHUB.ORG after an update of the
DPP implies acceptance by the User of the updated DPP.
