professional details - like your job title, education, and skills - helps you get found by other people
1.1 Data Controllers
If you reside in the United States, then the personal information provided to or collected by our Services
is controlled by StratusCore Incorporated, 1126 34th Avenue #314 Seattle Washington, 98112. If you have
any concern about providing information to us or having such information displayed on our Services or
become a Member, visit our websites, apps or otherwise use our Services. If you have already registered,
you can close your account.
When you create an account with us, we collect information (including your name, email address, and
To create an account on
StratusCore, you must provide us with at least your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a
information. You may provide additional information during the registration flow (for example, your postal
code, job title, and company) to help you build your profile and to provide you more customized services
(for example: language-specific profile pages, updates, content, more relevant ads and career
opportunities). You understand that, by creating an account, we and others will be able to identify you by
your StratusCore profile. We may also ask for your credit card details if you purchase certain additional
We also provide the option to register for a Render Rocket account, for which you must provide at least
your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password.
1.3. Profile Information
We collect information when you fill out a profile. A complete StratusCore profile that includes
professional details - like your job title, education, and skills - helps you get found by other people
After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your StratusCore profile,
such as descriptions of your skills, professional experience, and educational background. You can list
honors, awards, professional affiliations, Group memberships, networking objectives, companies or
individuals that you follow, and other information including content. Subject to the settings you choose,
your connections may provide recommendations and endorsements of you. Providing additional information
enables you to derive more benefit from our Services by helping you express your professional identity;
find other professionals, opportunities, and information; and help recruiters and business opportunities
find you. It also enables us to serve you ads and other relevant content on and off of our Services.
1.4. Address Book and
Other Services That Sync with StratusCore
We collect information when you sync non-StratusCore content - like your email address book, mobile device
contacts, or calendar - with your account.
You may use our address book or 'contacts' importer (or other similar features) to upload your address
book into our Services. We store this information (including phone numbers) and use it to help you manage
and leverage your contacts in connection with our Services. We also use this information to enhance your
experience with our Services by helping you to grow your network by: identifying your contacts that are
already Members of our Services; providing a template to send invitations on your behalf to your contacts
that are not Members; and suggesting people you may know (even if not in your contacts) but are not yet
connected with you on our Services (as we may infer from your shared connections or shared managers,
employers, educational institutions and other such factors).
We may also use this information to show you and other Members that you share the same uploaded
contacts who may or may not be Members.
Please note that when you send an invitation to connect to another individual on our Service (a
'connection') or to join our Service to connect with you, that person may have access to your email
address or, for SMS invitations, mobile number because it may be displayed in the invitation.
After sending these invitations, we may also remind your invitees of your invitation on your behalf.
Your StratusCore connections will also have access to your email address.
We make other tools available to sync information with our Services, and may also develop additional
features that allow Members to use their account in conjunction with other third-party services. For
example, our mobile applications allow you to sync your device's calendar, email and/or contacts apps with
our Services to show you the StratusCore profiles of meeting attendees, email correspondents and/or your
Another example are software tools that allow you to see our and other public information about the
people you email or meet with and leverage our Services to help you gain insights from and grow your
network. If you grant these products (mobile applications or our other Services that sync external email
and calendar services, such as 'StratusCore Connected') permission to access your email and calendar
accounts, they will access and may store some of your email header and calendar history information. Our
products that sync with external email services may also temporarily cache message content for performance
reasons, in a way that is unreadable by us and our service providers.
Any information that you upload or sync with our Services is covered by the User Agreement and this
or in accordance with Section 3. You can remove your address book and any other synced information at any
1.5. Customer Service
We collect information when you contact us for customer support.
When you contact our customer support services (e.g. on our Artist Care Center), we may have to access
your InMails, Groups and other contributions to our Services and collect the information we need to
categorize your question, respond to it, and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our User Agreement
our support responses to better serve you. We do not use this information for advertising.
1.6. Using the StratusCore Sites and Applications
We collect information when you visit our Services (including StratusCore and Render Rocket), use our
mobile applications, and interact with advertising on and off our Services.
We collect information when you use (whether as a Member or a Visitor) our websites, applications, our
platform technology (such as 'Share on StratusCore' plugins for publishers) or other Services. For
example, we collect information when you view or click on ads on and off our Services, perform a search,
import your address book, join and participate in groups, participate in polls, install one of our
mobile applications, view content on our Services and apply to jobs through our Services. If you are
logged in on StratusCore.com, one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage information
and the log data described in Section 1.10 of this policy, such as your IP address, will be associated
by us with your account. Even if you're not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used
to access our Services, including IP address.
1.7. Using Third-Party
Services and Visiting Third-Party Sites
We collect information when you use your account to sign in to other sites or services, and when you
view web pages that include our plugins and cookies.
You allow us to receive information when you use your account to log in to a third-party website or
application. Also, when you visit a third-party site that embeds our social plugins (such as 'Share on
StratusCore' for publishers) we receive information that those pages have loaded in your web browser. If
you are logged in as a Member when you visit sites with our plugins, we use this information to
recommend tailored content to you. We will use this information to personalize the functionality we
provide on third-party sites, including providing you insights from your professional network and
allowing you to share information with your network. Our retention of this data is addressed in Section
3.2. We may provide reports containing aggregated impression information to companies hosting our
plugins and similar technologies to help them measure traffic to their websites, but no personal data.

identifiers, to help us recognize you across different Services, learn about your interests both on and
off our Services, improve your experience, increase security, measure use and effectiveness of our
Services, and serve advertising. You can control cookies through your browser settings and other tools.
By visiting our Services, you consent to the placement of cookies and beacons in your browser and
Technologies and Web Beacons
We use advertising technologies and web beacons to collect information. We give you a number of ways to
opt out of targeted ads, including through the Ad Choices icon shown with any ads we serve on
third-party sites. If you do not want us to track your behavior on third-party sites, you can opt out.
If you do not opt out, you consent to our use of beacons and other advertising technologies.
We target (and measure the performance of) ads to Members, Visitors and others both on and off of our
Services through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, using the following, whether separately or
- Advertising technologies on and off of our Services, like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and
mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms;
- Member-provided profile and contact information and categories (for example, 'Maya artist in
- Information inferred from a Member's profile (for example, using job titles to infer age, industry,
seniority, and compensation bracket; or names to infer gender);
- Your use of our Services (for example, your search history, the content you read on Stratuscore,
who you follow or is following you on StratusCore, Groups participation, which pages you visit, your
clicking on a StratusCore ad, etc.) and log files generated as described in Section 1.10;
- Information from 3rd parties (e.g. advertising partners, publishers and data aggregators) which we
use in addition to the information from our cookies (and similar technologies), your profile and use
of our Services.
We do not share your personal information with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for
advertising without your separate permission. Note that, as described in Section 2.6, your profile is
visible to other Members and through public search depending on your settings. Also, advertising
partners may associate personal information collected by the advertiser directly from you with our
cookies and similar technologies. In such instances, we contractually require such advertisers to obtain
your explicit opt-in consent before doing so.
We may show you sponsored content in your session, which will be designated as sponsored content and
will behave like other updates. If you take social action (for example, if you 'like' or 'comment' on
the sponsored content), your action may be seen by your network and other Members who are shown the
sponsored content after you have acted on it. Please note that all social actions on StratusCore (e.g.
liking certain content, following or being followed by others) are public, unless expressly specified
otherwise with respect to premium accounts.
We adhere to self-regulatory principles for interest based advertising. If you wish to not receive
targeted ads from most third party companies, you may opt-out as described here. Please note this does
not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads or targeted ads by
and similar technologies to track your behavior on third party sites. For non-Members, this opt out
setting is here.
1.10. Log Files, IP
Addresses, and Information About Your Computer and Mobile Device
We collect information from the devices and networks that you use to access our Services.
When you visit or leave our Services (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a hyperlink or when
you view a third-party site that includes our plugin or cookies (or similar technology), we
automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed.
Also, advertisers receive the URL of the page that you are on when you click an ad on or through our
Services. We also receive the internet protocol ('IP') address of your computer or the proxy server that
you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile
device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), your
mobile operating system (if you are accessing StratusCore using a mobile device), and the name of your
ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or
GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information (for example, Pulse
articles about your area or jobs postings in your location) on our mobile applications and for fraud
prevention and security purposes. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being
sent to us, and of course we will honor your settings.
1.11. Site Analytics
We employ advertising and tracking features through Google Analytics which enable us to better
understand our Site users and traffic.
These Advertising Features may include:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics;
- Insight tags and remarketing through LinkedIn;
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting;
- Google Analytics Demographics (e.g., age, gender) and Interest Reporting; and
- Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes.
Advertising Features, we collect data about our Site traffic via advertising “cookies” and identifiers,
in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation.
We are constantly innovating to improve our Services, which means we may create new ways to collect
information on the Services.
Our Services are a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always seeking to improve the
Services we offer you. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of
new information (for example, when the Endorsements feature launched, we began collecting information
about skills for which Members were endorsed and the individuals who endorsed them). Furthermore, new
partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new
types of information. If we start collecting substantially new types of personal information and
accordance with Section 4.3.
2. How We Use Your
2.1. Consent to
StratusCore Processing Information About You
You agree that information you provide on your profile can be seen by others and used by us as described
The personal information that you provide to us may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your
life that are not expressly stated on your profile (for example, your picture or your name may reveal
your gender). By providing personal information to us when you create or update your account and
profile, you are expressly and voluntarily accepting the terms and conditions of our User Agreement and
freely accepting and agreeing to our processing of your personal information in ways set out by this
voluntary on your part. You can withdraw or modify your consent to our collection and processing of the
Agreement, by changing your account settings or your profile on StratusCore or Render Rocket, or by
closing your StratusCore or Render Rocket accounts.
We communicate with you using StratusCore messaging, email, and other ways available to us. We may send
you messages relating to the availability of the Services, security, or other service-related issues. We
also may send promotional InMail messages to your StratusCore inbox. You can change your email settings
at any time.
We communicate with you through email, notices posted on the StratusCore websites or apps, messages to
your StratusCore inbox, and other means available through the Services, including mobile text messages
and push notifications. Examples of these communications include: (1) welcome and engagement
communications - informing you about how to best use our Services, new features, updates about other
Members you are connected to and their actions, etc.; (2) service communications - these will cover
service availability, security, and other issues about the functioning of our Services; (3) promotional
communications - these include both email and InMail messages (InMail messages are only delivered to
your StratusCore InBox), and may contain promotional information directly or on behalf of our partners,
including job opportunities and information from companies that are hiring. These messages will be sent
to you based on your profile information and messaging preferences. We track the open rate of your
InMails to provide your InMail acceptance score. You may change your email and contact preferences at
any time by signing into your account and changing your StratusCore. You can also opt out of promotional
messages by sending a request to StratusCore Artist Care Center.
Please be aware that you cannot opt out of receiving service messages from us.
With certain communications you send on our Services, the recipient can see your name, email address,
and some network information.
Many communications that you initiate through our Services (for example, an invitation sent to a
non-Member) will list your name and primary email address in the header of the message. Messages you
initiate may also provide the recipient with aggregate information about your network (for example, how
many people are in your network). Other communications that you initiate through the Services, like a
request for an introduction, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal
email address contact information. Once you have connected with an individual, regardless of who sent
the invitation, your contact information will be shared with that individual.
We use automatic scanning technology to help protect you and other Members. Such technology checks links
and other content in your InMails, network updates and Group contributions to help us identify and block
malicious links and malware, reduce spam and optimize the delivery of our Services.
Development; Customized Experience
We use the information and content you provide to us to conduct research and development and to
customize your experience and try to make it relevant and useful to you
We use information and content that you and other Members provide to us to conduct research and
development for the improvement of our Services in order to provide you and other Members and Visitors
with a better, more intuitive experience and drive membership growth and engagement on our Services and
to help connect professionals to economic opportunity.
We also customize your experience and the experiences of others on our Services. For example, when you
sign in to your account, we may display the names and photos of new Members who have recently joined
your network or recent updates from your connections and companies you follow. We try to show you
content, such as news and presentations, that is relevant to you, your industry, or your profession. We
also use Members information and content for invitations and communications promoting our Services that
are tailored to the recipient.
Information with Partners
We share your information across our different Services, among companies in the StratusCore family.
We may share your personal information with our affiliates (meaning entities controlled by, controlling
or under common control with StratusCore) outside of the StratusCore entity that is your data controller
(for example, StratusCore Corporation may share your information with StratusCore Canada, or other
StratusCore operating entities) as reasonably necessary to provide the Services. You are consenting to
this sharing. We combine information internally across different Services. For example, Render Rocket
may recommend better content to you based on your StratusCore content preferences and the articles you
read on Pulse, and StratusCore could present you a better tailored network update stream based on your
Render Rocket activity, whether or not you tied your Render Rocket and/or StratusCore accounts (e.g. by
signing in Render Rocket with your StratusCore account), as we may be able to identify you across
different Services using cookies or similar technologies.
Information with Third Parties
We share your information across our different Services, among companies in the StratusCore family.
We offer a 'public profile' feature that allows you as a Member to publish portions of your professional
profile to the public Internet. This public profile will be indexed and displayed through public search
engines when someone searches for your name. You may choose the parts of your profile that search
engines index or completely opt out of this feature in your StratusCore account settings, or limit the
publicly visible information in your RenderRocket profile. However, third-party search engines may not
automatically update their caches, which may contain old public profile information. Unless you delete
them, your profiles on StratusCore.com and our corresponding app or on RenderRocket.com are always
viewable on the respective Services.
The visibility of your professional profile to other Members depends on your degree of connection with
the viewing Member, the subscriptions they may have, their usage of the Services, access channels and
search types (e.g. by name or by keyword). For example, first degree connections can see your full
profile and contact information. Others have more limited access, as detailed in our Help Center. Please
note that recruiters and other such professional subscribers can see your full profile even if you did
not approve their InMail.
We do not rent or sell personal information that you have not posted on our Services, except as
your profile or generated through engagement with our other services, such as Groups and Company Pages,
except to carry out your instructions (for example, to process payment information) or unless we have
your separate consent, unless we have a good faith belief that disclosure is permitted by law or is
reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with a legal requirement or process, including, but not limited to,
civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Privacy
Policy or our User Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties; (4)
respond to Member service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or safety of StratusCore, our
Services, our Members, Visitors, or the public. See Section 2.14 for additional details about our
compliance with legal requests for information.
We support middleware providers that offer archiving solutions to firms subject to legal and regulatory
archiving requirements, which, with your permission, facilitate the archiving of your communications and
other activity by a third party for compliance purposes. Content distributed through our sharing
features and third-party integrations may result in displaying some of your personal information outside
of our Services. For example, when you post content to a Group that is open for public discussion, your
content, including your name as the contributor, may be displayed in search engine results.
Also, if you have opted to bind any of your Service accounts to your Twitter, Facebook or other similar
account, you can easily share content from our Services to these third party services, in accordance
with your account settings (which you may change at any time) and respective policies of these third
parties. Further, we allow third parties to look-up profile information (subject to your privacy
settings) using your email address or first and last name information through its profile API (see
Section 2.7. below).
Third parties (for example, your email provider) may give you the option to upload certain information
in your contacts stored with us onto their own service. If you choose to share your contacts in this
way, you will be granting your third party provider the right to store, access, disclose and use these
2.7. Third Parties
Using StratusCore Platform Services
We work with developers to build Platform Applications using our developer tools. Whether you use
Platform Applications is up to you.
If you have given a Platform Application access to your StratusCore account, you can revoke that
permission any time. Also, you can opt out of providing information to developers through your
We collaborate with and allow third parties to use our developer platform to offer services and
functionality in conjunction with our Services. These third-party developers have either negotiated an
agreement to use our platform technology or have agreed to our self-service API and Plugin terms in
order to build applications ('Platform Applications'). Both the negotiated agreements and our API and
Plugin terms contain restrictions on how third parties may access, store, and use the personal
information you provide to us.
If you choose to use a Platform Application, you will be asked to confirm acceptance of the privacy
policy and user agreement of the third-party developer. To revoke permission granted to a Platform
Application, please visit your settings. Note, however, that even if you revoke the permission granted
to a Platform Application, your connections may still be using the Platform Application, so the Platform
Application may still have access to certain information about you, just as your connections do. You may
opt out of providing information to third-party developers through your connections by accessing the
'Turn on/off data sharing with third-party applications' control in the 'Groups, Companies, and
Applications' tab under settings.
2.8. Polls and Surveys
We conduct our own surveys and polls and also help third parties do this type of research. Your
participation in surveys or polls is up to you. You may also opt out of getting invitations to
participate in surveys.
Polls and Surveys may be conducted by us, Members, or third parties. Some third parties may target
advertisements to you on the results page based on your answers in the poll. We or third parties may
follow up with you via InMail regarding your participation unless you have opted out of receiving InMail
messages. We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls. If
the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide personal
information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will be used only for the purpose
of delivering incentives and verifying your contact information. It is up to you whether you provide
this information, or whether you desire to take advantage of an incentive. Your consent to use any
personal information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by
the party conducting it. You may opt out of participating in surveys by changing your settings to stop
receiving these inquiries and requests.
Our Services help you search for other professionals, companies, groups, professional content, and jobs.
You can search for Members, employment opportunities, information about companies, and community content
from Groups on our Services. For example, you can find Members with particular expertise or experience,
or Members that you may know from your industry or profession. You can also find employment
opportunities and information about companies. We use personal information from our Services, including
Member profiles, Groups content, and Company Pages, to inform and refine our search service.
You are responsible for any information you post on our Services, and this content will be accessible to
If you participate in Groups, share content on your network update stream, or import a blog or other
content, you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be
read, collected, and used by other Members in these forums, developers, and other third parties,
including advertisers. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these forums.
Your Groups contributions are typically searchable on our Services and some content in Groups may be
public and searchable on the Internet if the group owner has not closed the group for public
discussions. You can identify closed groups by the padlock icon next to the group name. You can remove
your Groups posts at any time. However, others may have copied and used the information that you shared.
2.11. Testimonials and
Advertisements Placed through StratusCore Ads
If you provide any testimonials about our goods or services or place advertisements through the
StratusCore Ads, we may post those testimonials and examples of advertisements you place in connection
with our promotion of these services to third parties. Testimonials and advertisements may include your
name and other personal information that you have provided. For more information about StratusCore Ads,
Recruiting, Marketing and Sales Solutions
We offer a premium service to recruiters, partners and others, which can be used to search for,
organize, and communicate with potential candidates or offer employment opportunities. In some cases we
allow the export of public profile information. You can control how your information is exported by
changing which parts of your public profile are accessible to search engines.
We offer customized people-search functionality along with organizational and communications tools
(including activity alerts) as part of our talent recruiting, marketing and sales solutions. These
services allow subscribers - generally, enterprises and professional organizations - to export limited
information from Members' public profiles, such as name, headline, current company, current title, and
location (for example, San Francisco Bay Area), in order to effectively manage candidate sourcing. You
may limit or prevent such subscribers from exporting your profile information by configuring your public
profile visibility settings to restrict access to these fields. We do not provide email or other contact
information to these subscribers. However, if you post that information as part of your profile it will
be available to them and others. A recruiter or other such subscriber may also manage and store
information it has independently obtained about you outside of our Services, such as a resume, in
connection with our platform. Any personal information obtained independently of our Services will not
be added by us to your profile and is not under our control but is subject to the policies of our
recruiting, marketing or sales solution subscriber. We store such information on behalf of such
subscriber who can remove it at any time. We do not further process such information.
2.13. Pages for
Companies, Influencers, and Other Entities
Companies and other entities can create pages on our Services. If you follow one of these pages,
non-identifiable information about you will be provided to the page's administrators.
Certain pages on the Services are public (e.g., company and college pages), and any communications or
information shared through them will be accessible by the entity that created them. If you follow a
person or organization, you will be listed among its followers, which can be viewed by others including
the page owner. We use aggregate information about followers and viewers to provide data about such
pages' performance (for example, visits and updates).
2.14. Compliance with
Legal Process and Other Disclosures
We may disclose your personal information if compelled by law, subpoena, or other legal process, or if
necessary to enforce our User Agreement.
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information
about your activities as a Member or Visitor when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process,
whether in the United States, Ireland, or other jurisdictions, or if we have a good faith belief that
disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or
actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the User Agreement,
investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security
or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of StratusCore,
our Members, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their personal
information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the
request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our
discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to
challenge every demand. To find out more about how we engage with government requests for data see our
Law Enforcement Data Request Guidelines.
2.15. Disclosures to
Others as the Result of a Change in Control or Sale of StratusCore Corporation
If there is a change in control or sale of all or part of StratusCore, we may share your information
We may also disclose your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of the assets of
StratusCore Corporation, a subsidiary, or division, or as the result of a change in control of the
company or one of its affiliates, or in preparation for any of these events. Any third party to which we
transfers or sells our assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information
2.16. Service Providers
We may employ third parties to help us with the Services
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g. maintenance,
analysis, audit, marketing and development). These third parties have limited access to your information
only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to StratusCore not to disclose or use it for
2.17 Data Processing
Outside Your Country
We may process your information outside the country where you live.
We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever StratusCore,
its affiliates, partners and service providers operate.
