Privee Labs Inc. (also referred to as “we”, “our”, “us”, "Privee") is an ad-free, subscription-based social media platform. We firmly believe that a social product without ads or tracking will provide our members with a significantly better experience.
When you visit our Website (‘Site’) and use our App (collectively referred to as 'Services'), we collect only the information and personal data you have agreed to provide to us that is necessary to identify your needs and to provide you with better service. Through your use of the Website, App, or registration as a new user, we may request personal data including, but not limited to:
Some of this personal data, including name, and contact information, will only be collected if you voluntarily provide it during the user registration process.
On our website, we may also track information such as the domain name and the name of the web page from which you entered our Site, and how much time you spend on each of our pages. We collect information that is combined with other web visitors' information, such as how many times visitors click on each web page and the methods by which our Site was found.
To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. To request a copy of the data you’ve submitted to the waitlist visit this Viral Loops data request link. To request deletion of the data you’ve submitted to the waitlist visit this Viral Loops deletion request link. You can opt out of these service providers at any time, but if you do, you may lose some functionality on our Site.
We use third party analytics and services to give you the best experience on our Site.
In our app, besides account information and user generated content, analytics are collected via Heap Analytics. We collect analytics information in a pseudo-anonymized manner (linked to randomly generated user ID and a device ID) to track app interactions, usage, and feature adoption, among other performance and product metrics. We use in-app analytics to give you the best experience in-app.
You will be asked to provide personal data in certain fields on the Site and App that allow you to use our Services. The personal data we collect is used only for the purpose we state at the time of collection or for purposes contained below. For example, our uses may include, but are not limited to, the following:
To the extent that we collect certain demographic information about you, we may use this information in our market research, but we will do so only after we “anonymize” or “pseudo-anonymize” the data, i.e., remove information that would confirm your identity. We will not use your personal data, however, to send commercial or marketing messages to you unless we have a legal basis for doing so, such as your consent or a contract with us for which, in either case, you will have the ability to opt out of by sending an email to email@example.com.
Our services do not collect personal data when you use them unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide such information to us. This means that we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personal data just because you browse the Site or use the App unless you:
In these cases we will know who you are based on the information you previously supplied to us. When you request a page from our Site, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make our Site functions correctly and provide you with the functionality that you expect to see. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our Site and how we can better tune it, its contents, and functionality to meet your needs. We only use your personally identifiable information for those activities listed at the time you submit your information to us. For example, if you provide us with an email to inform you of special events, then that is what we will use your email address to do. If we would like to use your personally identifiable information for an unrelated activity (e.g. highlighting your content in an advertisement), we will first request your consent to do so.
When you use our app, our analytics suite captures your in-app activity and associates with a randomly generated user ID number and device ID. Those identifiers are persistent and unique to your device, but are not tied to your personal identity in any way.
We may provide your personal data to third parties, or third parties may collect personal data from you on our behalf if we have contracted with that third party to provide some part of the information or service that you have requested (e.g., they may utilize your email to send you the gift card you have redeemed your in-app rewards for). Other than those who act on our behalf and except as explained in this Policy, personal data you provide on our Site or App will not be transferred to unrelated third parties, unless we have a legal basis to do so. However, please note that personal data provided to Privee is subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders. We will only provide this information after approximately two weeks following receipt of a valid subpoena or other legal process in a civil case.
Security of Personal Data
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. Depending on the circumstances, we may hold your information in hard copy and/or electronic form. For each medium, we use technologies and procedures to protect personal data. We review our strategies and update as necessary to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements. We take our security obligations seriously and so should you. While we are responsible for maintaining the security of our Site and App, you must also access and use our Site and App in a manner that is responsible and secure. We adhere to internationally recognized security standards. In addition, we have implemented a series of policies, procedures, and training to address data protection, confidentiality, and security, and we update and review the appropriateness of these measures on a regular basis.
Disclosure and Sale of Personal Data
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Privee has not disclosed personal information for a business purpose.
Privee has not sold and will never sell personal information.
Storage and Transfer of Personal Data
We also collaborate with third parties such as cloud hosting services and suppliers located around the world to serve the needs of our business, workforce, and customers. In some cases, we may need to disclose or transfer your personal data within Privee or to third parties in areas outside of your home country. When we do so, we take steps to ensure that personal data is processed, secured, and transferred according to applicable law.
If you would like to know more about our data transfer practices, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retention of Personal Data
Data that you create within Privee’s Services, such as posts and comments in the App, will be retained for your use of our Services until you delete them from your account or delete your account.
We retain other information you provide to us, such as your log-in credentials, and analytics data we automatically collect only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, comply with applicable laws, comply with audits, and enforce our Terms of Service.
We respect your right to access and control your personal data. You have choices about the data we collect. When you are asked to provide personal data that is not necessary for the purposes of providing you with our Products and Services, you may decline. However, if you choose not to provide data that is necessary to provide a Service, you may not have access to certain features, Sites, Products, or Services.
Access to personal data: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to request access to your personal data. In these cases, we will comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data.
Correction and deletion: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your personal data if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal data (e.g. a phone number or email) is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, or that it is required by the applicable law.
Marketing preferences: If you have provided us with your contact information, we may, subject to any applicable Spam Act or similar regulation, contact you via email or telephone about our products, services and events that may be of interest to you, including newsletters.
E-mail communications you receive from us will generally provide an unsubscribe link allowing you to opt-out of receiving future email or to change your contact preferences. E-mail communications may also include a link to directly update and manage your marketing preferences. If you have an account with Privee, you can also change your contact preferences through our App. Please remember that even if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, we may still send you important Service information related to your accounts.
We may use third party analytics vendors to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of our Services and viewing of our content. This information allows us to create content and features of greater interest to you and improve our services.
You may opt-out of Google analytics by visiting http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
However, you cannot opt-out of our contextual analytics; which is based on your usage of only our Services. We will also continue to monitor your usage to provide us with analytics on how well our Services, features, and activities are functioning and used. We will also share this information in an aggregated or anonymized form (meaning that no one individual person can be identified) within Privee.
You can also opt out of our marketing emails at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
We aim to keep all personal data that we hold accurate, complete and up-to-date. While we will use our best efforts to do so, we encourage you to tell us if you change your contact details. If you believe that the information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or out-of-date, please update it in the App.
You can change or correct your personal data at any time in the App.
We understand the importance of protecting the privacy of all individuals, especially the very young. Our Services are intended for audiences over the age of 13. Our Services are not directed to children, and you may not use our Services if you are under the age of 13. You must also be old enough to consent to the processing of your personal data in your country (in some countries we may allow your parent or guardian to do so on your behalf).
While we do not anticipate it, every business nowadays should plan for the possibility that it might sell certain or all of its assets to another company or individual, or that it might buy certain assets of another company or individual. If all or part of the company is sold, merged or otherwise transferred to another entity, the personal information you have provided to us may be transferred as part of that transaction. However, we will take steps to ensure that your personal information is used in a manner consistent with the provisions of our Policy.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
