Who we are
Angel.me NV/SA (and its, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, "Angel.me", "we" or "us") helps people to bring their creative ideas and projects to life. Our primary activity is a service to crowdfund creative projects and entrepreneurs. We're based in Brussels, Belgium and have our legal office at: Kempische Steenweg 311/ 1.02, 3500 Hasselt, Belgium
To be able to use our services, we need to collect and process a minimum of personal information. Depending on your use of the platform, that may include:
You may decline to provide us with your personal information. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services. You're able to see, change or remove your personal information through your account settings.
As a funder (someone who financially supported a project), the only information that is shared publicly is your first name + the first letter of your last name, and your profile picture. If you prefer not to share your first name + the first letter of your last name, you can choose to show a custom username.
As a creator of a project, no personal information will be visible. You're given a 'Team' section where you're supposed to give information about you and/or your team, but we don't show the information you provided in your personal account.
It's possible that your information is shared with certain trusted third-party services in order to help us provide, improve, protect or run Angel.me's services. Like partnerships with payment providers for example. When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of our Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We may also share information that’s aggregated and anonymized in a way that it doesn’t directly identify you.
When you support a project, the project's creator has no possibility to see any of your personal information. He's only able to see the 'Funders'-page, which shows the first name + the first letter of your last name. When a project is successfully funded, the creator will receive the name, email address and the amount you've pledged. We give them your email address because they may need your mailing address, or T-shirt size or any other information that has to deal with the reward you bought.
Creators are required to keep backer information confidential, except as strictly necessary to communicate with backers directly and fulfill rewards. Creators should not ask for personal information that isn’t necessary to provide your reward, and should never request sensitive personal information such as your Social Security number or payment information. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.
We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect Kickstarter’s legal rights, property, or the safety of Kickstarter, its employees, users, or others.
We retain your information as long as your account is active on our platform, it's necessary to give you access to our services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect our own legal rights.
All our users can manage their personal information, as further described below, in their account settings. You can request a downloadable copy of your personal data from Angel.me via email@example.com. To modify or delete the personal information you’ve provided to us, please log in and update your profile. You may also delete your account from your account settings page. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.
