Effective December 18, 2017
I. OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
Except where otherwise expressly indicated herein or in the Application, this Policy applies only to information collected through the Services and not to information collected outside of the Services.
Anyone who visits, browses, downloads, or otherwise uses the Services (collectively, “you” or “user”) is subject to this Policy. Before submitting any information in connection with your use of the Services, please read this Policy. By using the Services, including the submission of any personal information, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Policy and consent to having your data transferred to and/or processed in the United States and other countries where Mobilify has facilities. If you do not agree to this Policy, you are not permitted to use the Services.
II. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The Services permit users to submit reports about vehicles observed in violation of the law and/or public safety. We collect the following three categories of information from you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information; (b) Non-Personal Information; and (c) Passive Information. All three of these categories are collectively referred to as “Information” in this Policy.
A. Personally Identifiable Information Collected from Individuals
We may receive and store any information you enter through the Services that would allow us to identify you personally or contact you or identify other individuals, drivers or vehicles. This information is referred to as Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). The PII you provide to us only will be used by Mobilify in accordance with this Policy. Examples of PII we may collect from you are:
- Your mobile phone number or International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number;
- Your email address or other contact information;
- License plate and/or vehicle and/or driver data of vehicles you observe; or
- Any PII you provide about yourself or others when you send us an e-mail, contact support, make an inquiry or otherwise communicate with us.
- Information related or connected to a social media account that you use to sign up or log in to the Services, or when you associate that account with our Services. For instance, when you associate your Facebook account with our Services, we may receive your public profile (name, profile picture, age range, gender, language, country and other public information), your friend list and your email address. If you sign up, log in with or associate other social media accounts with our Services, such as Twitter or LinkedIn, we may obtain similar information from those platforms.
- Other Information you may provide to us, such as to receive promotional benefits or enter a sweepstakes or contest.
B. Non-Personal Information
From time to time, we may ask you to provide us with or permit us to collect non-personal information, which is data that alone is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as just your first name, zip code, demographic information or location information. This non-personal information also may include precise GPS location if you choose to permit the Services to collect this information, or less specific location information, such as the city, state and country in which you are located when you download the Application. Sometimes, Mobilify will aggregate and/or anonymize PII so that it becomes non-personal information and is not intended to be used to personally identify you.
C. Passive Information Gathered Electronically
We and our third-party partners, such as third-party vendors that provide analytic services to us (collectively, our “Partners”), may automatically collect certain types of passive information when you use the Services. For instance, we may through your device and/or the Application automatically collect your mobile device identifier such as an IDFA (for iOS), or MAC address or other unique identifier, or your device hardware model, operating system version, or mobile network information. We (or our Partners) may also collect service usage information, frequency of users of the Service, pages, forms or screens visited, status of a usage session, and similar data that is associated with your mobile device, or your use of the Application. This data is used for purposes of providing services to you, analyzing and improving our service and providing diagnostics and support functions, and may also be used in the aggregate as a statistical measure. This information can be used to identify a device that is using the Services and information concerning a session in which you are using the Services, such as the device that is being used, the start and stop times for using the Application, the location where such usage is taking place, and the history of purchases made through the Services.
D. Device Location Information
You can use your wireless device to obtain the Application for free through third-party marketplaces, like the Apple App Store or Google Play store. The Application, as well as the operating system for your mobile device (iOS or Android) may provide additional functionality by using a variety of device location tools. These include: (i) the precise location of your wireless device using the device GPS functionality; (ii) broader location information, such as the city, state and/or country where you were located when you download the Application; (iii) your device identifier, IP address, or operating system; and (iv) usage information. For instance, if you desire, the Services may use your location information to help validate the reports you submit. You will be (or have been) notified of this location functionality upon installation. You also may be able to control location settings through your device settings on your mobile device operating system.
III. HOW WE USE INFORMATION
We may use your Information for a number of purposes, including:
- To allow you to use the Services and to administer your account;
- To communicate with you including, without limitation, responding to your questions or comments, or to contact you for feedback regarding us or Partners;
- For Mobilify’s marketing and promotional activities, or to provide information about our products and services;
- To provide you with functionality changes to the Services or new Mobilify services;
- To customize, personalize, analyze, evaluate, adjust and improve the Services to meet the needs and expectations of you, Mobilify, our affiliates, or Partners;
- To anonymize or aggregate PII for various purposes like market analysis or traffic flow analysis and reporting and other internal purposes; and
- To enforce our agreements with you, prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities, and generally to ensure that we comply with applicable laws.
IV. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
The privacy and confidentiality of your Information is important to Mobilify. We only share your Information with third parties if we have your permission or under the following circumstances.
Mobilify Affiliates. With the exception of license plate and/or vehicle and/or driver data of vehicles you observe and provide to Mobilify, Mobilify does not share any PII collected through the Services with our Partners or other third parties. However, we may share PII with our affiliates and subsidiaries, where those affiliates or subsidiaries help us to provide you with services or products you have requested. An “affiliate” is an entity with which we share common ownership (in whole or in part), and a “subsidiary” is an entity in which we own all or part of the shares in that entity.
Service Providers. We may share Information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. These may include, for instance (without limitation), hosting providers, consumer and technical support providers, marketers and email providers, and other service providers who help us provide you with Services. We contractually require these third-party service providers to protect your PII.
Business Transfers. Information may be transferred or disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of some or all of Mobilify’s assets or transition of service to another provider. In the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, Information also may be transferred as a business asset.
Non-Personal Information; Aggregated Personal Information and Passive Information. We may share with third parties non-personal information, aggregated personal information that is not intended to allow these third parties to identify you or passive information, except for passive precise location information which is addressed below.
Your Location. Even if you choose to enable the GPS locator in the Application, which uses the GPS function on your mobile device, we will not share such GPS location data, (which we have also referred to above as “precise location” data) with third parties. However, anonymized and/or aggregated location data and non-precise information about your location (such as what we referred to above as “broader location information”) based on information such as an IP address may be shared with any third parties.
V. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Mobilify does not collect, store or otherwise maintain credit card, bank account or similar other financial information.
VI. ACCESSING OR CHANGING YOUR PII
If you need assistance changing or deleting your PII, you may contact us. We may be required to maintain certain PII for a period of time, for legal, accounting or anti-fraud purposes.
VII. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we disclosed their personal information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of personal information disclosed to those third parties. If you wish to make such a request or have any questions about Mobilify’s information sharing practices, you may contact us by sending us an email.
VIII. INFORMATION COLLECTED ON OUR WEBSITE(S)
When you visit our websites, we may collect certain information from you. This information falls into two categories: (A) personal information you voluntarily supply when you log into our Websites and (B) tracking information collected as you navigate our websites. We may disclose the information you provide to us through the website for any of the reasons listed above in Section III.
A. Personal Information You Provide to Us
We may retain and use for our business purposes personal information (and any other information) you provide to us. For instance, if you provide us with your email address, or enter a sweepstakes we offer, we may send you offers or newsletters, through a variety of digital channels. (We will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of these communications.) This includes information that you post to our site (such as if we offer you the opportunity to post to forums).
Cookies are small, unique strings of code stored on your computer that make it easier for you to use our site and help us improve site functionality and security. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them).
We may use our own proprietary cookies as well as cookies hosted by third-party vendors. In general, these cookies use non-personal information to help us track and analyze visits to our Website. This data is used for purposes of providing services to you, analyzing and improving the Services and our performance metrics, and may also be used in the aggregate as a statistical measure.
IX. IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES, PRACTICES AND CONTACT INFORMATION
A. Third-Party Links
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or applications. Please be aware that Mobilify cannot control and is not responsible for the information collection practices of such websites or applications, which may differ from those of Mobilify. We encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies and terms and conditions of these web sites and applications before providing any information to them.
B. Data Security
We use a variety of industry-accepted tools and safeguards designed to protect your Information and our systems from unauthorized access and disclosure. On the other hand, Mobilify has no control over the security of other websites or applications that you might visit or use even when a link to those websites or applications is available in or through the Services.
It is important to us that you feel confident using the Services. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your Information, we do not promise and you should not expect that your Information, activity on the Services or other communications is guaranteed to always remain secure.
The Services are not intended for persons under the age of 13: if you are under 13, you do not have permission to use the Services. Mobilify does not knowingly market to or solicit information, accept service or collect information from any person under the age of 13. If Mobilify becomes aware that any person submitting information to the Services is under the age of 13, we will attempt to delete the account and any related information as soon as possible. Any ratings for the Application provided by a third party shall have no bearing on this limitation.
We may occasionally update this Policy to reflect changes in our practices. When we post changes to this Policy, we will notify you through a conspicuous post on our website and/or through the Application, an email, or another means reasonably calculated to provide you with notice, provided that material changes will become effective thirty (30) days (or such longer term we may designate) after such notification. By continuing to access or use the Services or the Mobilify Application after the effective date of any such change, you agree to be bound by the revised terms of this Policy. If you do not wish to agree and abide by any such revised Policy, Mobilify shall have no further obligation or liability to you under this Agreement or otherwise, and you shall not be entitled to any compensation or other payment, remedy, or recourse. A “material change” is a change to this Agreement which reduces your contractual rights or increases your responsibilities under this Agreement in a significant manner.
