We do not process this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.

We use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies from third-party partners such as Google and Facebook for measurement services, better targeting for ads and for marketing purposes. These cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies also allow us to display Impaakt promotional material to you on other sites you visit across the Internet. We use cookies to analyse user activity and behaviour in order to improve the website and Platform.

Contact via e-mails

If we send you e-mail messages, we may use certain analytics tools, to capture data such as when you open our email or click on any links or banners our e-mails contain.

We may also send you notification e-mails for different purposes (e.g. news about our products and services, updates about terms and conditions, customer support, incentives for writing Impact Notes, etc.). Except for cases where we are required to do so by law (e.g. notifying you of a data breach), you shall have the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving these messages by sending an email to contact@impaakt.com.

The data we capture is solely used in connection with answering the queries we receive or to help us gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns.

4.2. To whom is the collected data communicated?

We use a select number of trusted external service providers for certain technical data analysis, processing and/or storage offerings. These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards.

We only share information with them:

If required to achieve the purpose for which they were freely shared with us or that is required for the services offered (e.g. the execution of an order).

If we are obliged to do so by statutory law or an instruction by a public authority or court,

Upon the sale of our business, be it by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a portion of our assets.

We remind you that, when you are using third-party services (e.g. Google Maps™, YouTube™, Facebook™ or Twitter™ buttons, etc.), the providers of such services may also collect and process Personal Data through their services (your localization, your user preferences, etc.). Therefore, before using these services, we recommend that you carefully read the privacy policies of these third parties. Twitter, Google and Facebook export data to the United States which is considered a country not providing a level of data protection adequate to EU standards. Please remember that when you publicly share Personal Data, this information may be seen and used by other people, as well as indexed by search engines.

Finally, in case of fraudulent use of our Site and, in particular, upon suspicion of punishable acts, your Personal Data may be analyzed for purposes of clarification and, upon duly justified request, according to us, transmitted to the competent official authorities or to the third person affected by the fraud.

5. Conditions specific to the participation of Members to Calls for Contribution

Impaakt reserves the right but not the obligation to organize at its sole discretion, and at the frequency of its own choice, calls for contribution (the "Calls for Contribution") during which Members are invited to submit their impact analysis (their "Impact Notes") on Companies listed on the Platform.

Please read carefully these specific terms and conditions. It is essential that you fully understand and consent to these specific conditions before participating in any Call for Contribution and submitting your Impact Notes.

To participate in a Call for Contribution and submit your Impact Note(s), you must be a Member in good standing of the Platform.

Unless otherwise stated, all terms defined in the General Terms and Conditions of Use of the Platform have the same meaning in these present Conditions.

5.1. Calls for Contribution

Calls for Contribution invite you to write Impact Notes which are short analyses of the social and environmental impact of Companies listed on the Platform, organized around the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Calls for Contribution can take different names and forms such as Challenges, Tournaments, Missions or Contests. Each Call for Contribution is independent from all the preceding and future ones and has its own specific set of rules in terms of eligible participants, targets and objectives, duration, success criteria, communication with participants, and type, amount and methods of the rewards that might be attributed to successful participants. Rules and conditions that apply to one specific Call for Contribution must not be considered as valid for another one and Members must check the rules of each Call for Contribution before deciding whether they want to participate or not. Members are free to choose which Calls for Contribution they want to participate in depending on the specific rules and conditions that are attached to each of them. Please note that should you choose to participate in a Call for Contribution, you cannot amend your Impact Note once it has been uploaded on the Platform.

5.2. Assessment of the Impact Note

Each Impact Note is assessed by Members of the Impaakt community based on three criteria: its relevance, objectivity and insightfulness. Each Member may assess the quality of Impact Note(s) at his or her sole discretion. Participants to the Calls for Contribution cannot ask to receive the details of who are the Members who submitted quality assessments for their Impact Notes, and what quality scores each of them submitted.

The assessment system of the Platform to grade the Impact Notes uses whole numbers on a scale out of five stars (i.e. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5). The quality level of an Impact Note (the "Quality Level") is calculated as the average of the scores that an Impact Note has received on each of the three criteria above.

The quality assessment performed by Members on the Platform determines whether the Impact Note submitted is eligible to a reward as per the specific rules and conditions attached to each Call for Contribution. Every Member is free to submit several Impact Notes for the same Call for Contribution, unless otherwise specified in the specific rules and conditions attached to this Call for Contribution. In case a member gets more than one Impact Note that meets the success criteria of the Call for Contribution, he/she is eligible to receive the reward for each successful Impact Note he/she submitted.

5.3. Conditions of participation

The Call for Contribution must be and at all times remain in accordance with all requirements stated in General Conditions of use of the Platform and the present Conditions. We may change these requirements at any time, with or without giving notice.

5.4. Budget

Each Call for Contribution has its own budget (the "Budget") that corresponds to the maximum amount of financial reward that can be spent on the Call for Contribution. This Budget is spent on a first-come, first-served basis. Impact Notes that match the success criteria of the Call for Contribution are rewarded immediately at the time when they meet all the success criteria in particular in terms of quality score and number of quality assessments received. If an Impact Note is submitted by a Member during the Call for Contribution and meets all the success criteria, it will not be financially rewarded if the Budget allocated to the Call for Contribution has already been entirely spent.

5.5. Period

Each Call for Contribution is organised over a period of time defined by a start date and an end date (the "Period"). Impact Notes that are submitted outside of the Period are not eligible to participate in the Call for Contribution and will not receive any reward, unless otherwise decided at the sole discretion of Impaakt. Members may participate in the Call for Contribution and submit Impact Notes until the end of the Period. However, if they do not reach all the success criteria before the end of the Period, they will not be eligible to receive any reward, unless otherwise decided at the sole discretion of Impaakt.

If the Budget is exhausted before the end of the Period, the Call for Contribution is automatically stopped. All Impact Notes that are submitted after the exhaustion of the Budget will not be eligible to receive a reward, unless otherwise decided at the sole discretion of Impaakt.

5.6. Reward for participation

As a reward for your participation in this Call for Contribution, you may receive a remuneration whose amount is specific to each Call for Contribution. To be eligible to the payment of a remuneration, participants must comply with the following cumulative conditions:

  1. you must upload at least one Impact Note within the Call for Contribution Period; and
  2. you must obtain a minimum quality score of 4.0 for the Impact Note based on the average of all quality assessments submitted by the Members; and
  3. a minimum of 100 Members must have validly assessed the quality of your Impact Note within the Call for Contribution Period.

Impaakt reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to lower the thresholds on points 2. and 3. but under no circumstances an Impact Note with a quality level inferior to 3.5 or that has received less than 50 quality assessments will be eligible for a financial reward.

Once the Call for Contribution Period has ended, the Platform may accept your Impact Note but you are not being eligible for potential rewards.

5.7. Attempts at cheating or distorting the rules of the Call for Contribution

Impaakt will monitor both the Impact Notes that are published by participants in the Calls for Contribution as well as the quality assessments that are submitted in relation to these Impact Notes. Any suspicion of cheating, manipulation of quality assessments, publication of invalid or fraudulent Impact Notes or any other form of distortion of the rules of the Call for Contribution will result in the removal of the suspicious Impact Notes and quality assessments from the Call for Contribution, at the sole discretion of Impaakt. Impaakt also reserves the right to forbid the Members suspected of manipulation, cheating or distortion to join some or all of the future Calls for Contribution launched by the Platform. Members who have been suspected of manipulation, cheating or distortion of the rules are not eligible to receive the reward related to the Call for Contribution they participated in.

6. Liability for our Platform

We assume no liability for the different opinions that may be included in the Content provided by any of the Members.

Shall we need to discontinue part of our services, where reasonably possible, we will give you advance notice so that you have a chance to retrieve and save the information that you might have posted on the Platform.

Finally, we reserve the right to terminate your account, delete your profile and any Content that you have posted on the Platform and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Platform, at any time in our sole discretion, with or without notice.

8. Revision to the "General Terms and Conditions of Use"

We will always inform you and seek your consent again every time we amend these Conditions. In case of any modification, the new version is automatically submitted to your approval before you access our Platform again. Please always read the new Conditions carefully and do not accept them should you not feel comfortable with any item. By accepting these Conditions, you are agreeing to all their terms.

9. Miscellaneous

The Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the access to - and the use of - our Platform.

If any provision of the Conditions is held to be void or unenforceable for any reason, the Parties shall replace it with a provision having legal and economic effects as similar as possible to the invalid provision. In any event, all other provisions of the Conditions shall remain valid and enforceable to the fullest extent possible.

The fact that we tolerate any breach of the Conditions by a Member, or our failure to assert any right or provision under these Conditions or the law, shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Unlike us, you are not allowed to transfer to third parties the rights and obligations which are yours according to the Conditions.

Conditions are available in English exclusively.

Should you have questions or comments regarding these Conditions - including our Privacy Policy - or suggestions regarding their improvement, please contact our support team at contact@impaakt.com.

10. Jurisdiction and applicable law

The Conditions are governed exclusively by Swiss substantive law. The exclusive place of jurisdiction is at Impaakt's registered offices, subject to an appeal to the Federal Court.
