Your Data Privacy at a Glance

  • Klear does NOT and has NO intention of keeping or storing influencers’ usernames and passwords. When connecting your IG to Klear, the influencer is simply providing authorization for Klear to collect their stories and access demographic insights for their followers.

  • Klear is a partner of Instagram/Facebook, we are performing these measures to keep in line with the terms and conditions as set by these entities.

  • We genuinely care for influencer privacy. As such, brands do not have direct access to influencers’ stories. Influencers will need to ensure to use the relevant # as requested by partners on each story post for the content to be made available. We understand that influencers also have a private life with kids, family, and friends and we certainly respect that.

  • Influencers may easily disconnect their Instagram Story connection with Klear at the end of the campaign by logging back into Klear and clicking "disconnect." The control is always left in the hands of the influencer.

  • Data sharing for authenticated accounts is always limited to Klear-verified brands. Influencers can also customize their privacy settings to limit data sharing to brands that they manually approve.

How Klear Protects and Stores Your Data

  • Security. We have implemented appropriate technical, organizational, and security measures designed to protect your Personal Data.

  • Retention of your Personal Data. We store and retain data for as long as we need it (amongst others, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements). In some circumstances we retain your Personal Data as follows: (i) for us to have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or (ii) if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your Personal Data or dealings.

Klear’s Role in Your Data Privacy

  • As controller: Klear is responsible for the collection and protection of Personal Data that it collects from publicly available sources and adds to our Platform. As such, we are a controller (or equivalent under applicable data protection legislation) of the Personal Data that we obtain about you (excluding CRM-Stored Influencer Data).

  • As processor: When a business customer of Klear uses our Platform, that customer may enter information relating to influencers into its Klear account. To the extent that information constitutes Personal Data under the GDPR, that information (excluding certain publicly available influencer data for which Klear is the controller) is referred to in this Privacy Notice as “CRM-Stored Influencer Data”. To the extent we process CRM-Stored Influencer Data, we generally do so as a processor (as defined in the GDPR or equivalent term under applicable data protection legislation) on behalf of that customer in respect of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data. This Privacy Notice does not apply to the processing of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data and the applicable customer will act as a controller in respect of that CRM-Stored Influencer Data and is responsible for obtaining all necessary consents and providing you with all requisite information as required by applicable law.
