5. Specific Information About Virtual Rooms
(a) Who may be present in the virtual room and observe what I say or do?
There are up to three types of participants in or users of the virtual rooms provided
by Linqto: Administrators, observers and invited guests. An Administrator is the
individual setting up the virtual room meeting. Administrators must register for
an Account with Linqto and have available to them such features as the ability to
allow invited guests to ask questions, limit time for questions or comments for
invited guests, and other features. Administrators typically manage the technical
issues related to the conduct of the virtual meeting and functionality of the virtual
room. The presence of an Administrator may or may not be visible or disclosed to
invited guests. Observers may be present with the permission of the Administrator
to observe the virtual meeting but not participate. The presence of an observer
will not be visible to the invited guests. Invited guests are the meeting attendees,
similar to attendees at a conference, or members of the crowd at a concert (with
added features to participate or interact). Administrators, observers and invited
guests may view participant comments through the messaging feature, hear verbal
comments and other audible content through the audio feature and view images through
the video features. Linqto does not have the responsibility to require that other
participants in your room refrain from using, or maintain confidential, items you
discuss, disclose or provide. Therefore, any information you submit or disclose
in a virtual room should not be considered confidential.
(b) Does Linqto monitor and/or record activity and discussions within the virtual
(i) Linqto may monitor activity and discussions within the virtual rooms for purposes
and conducting market research for its own use in developing and improving the use
and functionality of the Site and virtual rooms. An Administrator may record the
activity and discussions within the virtual rooms, which recording is automatically
publicly posted on the Administrator’s Facebook page. These recordings are an accommodation
and may be deleted periodically (and Linqto does not warrant or make any representation
whatsoever regarding the quality or success of such recording). If you have need
for a permanent recording, you must use another screen capture type of recording
tool. If Linqto is not the Administrator of a virtual room, Linqto will not separately
publish, disclose, record, or retransmit video, audio, text or other items discussed
or disclosed within such virtual room without the room Administrator’s consent,
except for the Enforcement Exceptions listed below. Please note, that in some instances,
Linqto or its representatives may organize topics, presentations and discussions
within virtual rooms and act as an Administrator, in which case, Linqto (as an Administrator)
may publish disclose, record, or retransmit video, audio, text or other items discussed
or disclosed. As set forth above, Linqto is not responsible for preventing other
participants from publishing, disclosing, recording, or retransmitting such content.
(c) Do I need to provide Personal Data to Linqto to use the Virtual Room?
(i) You may enter a virtual room within the Site as an invited guest of the Administrator
for that room without registering with Linqto. If entering from Facebook, the room
will use your Facebook identity. If entering from Linqto, you will be required to
enter a screen name. When entering a room, you may disclose your name and other
Personal Data which will be visible to other participants in the virtual room.
(ii) You must register an Account with Linqto to be eligible to act as an Administrator.
Setting up an Account as an Administrator provides you with the ability set up,
organize and conduct meetings, conferences and social gatherings in a virtual room
for your invited guests as described on the Site and in accordance with the Terms
of Use and pricing and payment requirements, if any. When registering as an Administrator,
Linqto may request specific Personal Data from you, such as your name, physical
address, e-mail address, and telephone number, and in some cases password information
to protect your Account (or virtual room) from unauthorized access.
