2. Information We Receive
Information you provide to us:
Information About Yourself
When you sign up for BounceME in Corp. you provide us with some personal information, like your name, email, gender, birth date and city of residence. During the registration process we give you the opportunity to connect with your friends and the businesses you use. You will also be able to add a picture of yourself. In some cases we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide specific services to you. Once you register you can provide other information about yourself by connecting with, for example, your hometown, family, relationships, networks, activities, interests, and places. You can also provide personal information about yourself, such as your shopping preferences.
One of the primary reasons people use BounceME in Corp. is to share content with others. Examples include when you update your status, upload or take a photo, upload or record a video, share a link, make a comment or send someone a message. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on BounceME in Corp. (such as photos), you must remove the metadata before uploading the content.
We may retain the details of transactions or payments you make on BounceME in Corp.. If you do not want us to store your payment source account number, you can remove it using the billing preferences feature.
We offer contact importer tools to help you upload your contacts addresses so that you can find your friends and customers on BounceME in Corp., and invite your contacts who do not have BounceME in Corp. accounts to join. If you give us your password to retrieve those contacts, we will not store your password after you have uploaded your contacts’ information.
Information we collect when you interact with BounceME in Corp.:
Site Activity Information
We keep track of some of the actions you take on BounceME in Corp., such as adding connections, posting content or connecting with an application. In some cases you are also taking an action when you provide information or content to us. For example, if you share a video, in addition to storing the actual content you uploaded, we might log the fact that you shared it.
Access Device and Browser Information
When you access BounceME in Corp. from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.
We use “cookies” (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make BounceME in Corp. easier to use, to make our advertising better, and to protect both you and BounceME in Corp.. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to BounceME in Corp.. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into BounceME in Corp., and to know when you are interacting with BounceME in Corp. applications and websites, our widgets and Share buttons, and our advertisements. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use BounceME in Corp..
Information we receive from third parties:
Information from other websites
We may institute programs with advertising partners and other websites in which they share information with us:
We may ask advertisers to tell us how our users responded to the ads we showed them (and for comparison purposes, how other users who didn’t see the ads acted on their site). This data sharing, commonly known as “conversion tracking,” helps us measure our advertising effectiveness and improve the quality of the advertisements you see.
We may receive information about whether or not you’ve seen or interacted with certain ads on other sites in order to measure the effectiveness of those ads.
Information from other users
We may collect information about you from other BounceME in Corp. users, such as when a friend indicates a relationship with you.
3. Sharing Information On BounceME in Corp.
This section explains how your privacy settings work, and how your information is shared on BounceME in Corp.. You should always consider your privacy settings before sharing information on BounceME in Corp..
Name And Profile Picture
BounceME in Corp. is designed to make it easy for you to find and connect with others. For this reason, your name and profile picture do not have privacy settings. If you are uncomfortable with sharing your profile picture, you should delete it (or not add one). You can also control who can find you when searching on BounceME in Corp. or on public search engines using the Profile privacy setting.
Your contact information settings control (available when customizing your privacy settings) who can contact you on BounceME in Corp., and who can see your contact information such as your email and phone number(s). Remember that none of this information is required except for your email address, and you do not have to share your email address with anyone.
Your personal information settings control who can see your personal information, such as your preferences, if you choose to add them. We recommend that you share this information using the Profile privacy settings.
Posts By Me
You can select a privacy setting for every post you make using the publisher on our site. Whether you are uploading a photo or posting a status update, you can control exactly who can see it at the time you create it. If you decide not to select who can view your post at the time you post the content, your content will be shared consistent with your Profile privacy settings.
Gender and Birth Date
In addition to name and email address, we require you to provide your gender and birth date during the registration process. We ask for your date of birth to verify that you are 13 or older, and so that we can better limit your access to content and advertisements that are not age appropriate. Because your date of birth and gender are required, you cannot delete them. You can, however, edit your profile to hide all (or part) of such fields from other users.
Here are some other things to remember:
Some of the content you share and the actions you take will show up on your friends’ home pages and other pages they visit.
Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users.
You understand that information might be re-shared or copied by other users.
Certain types of communications that you send to other users cannot be removed, such as messages.
When you post information on another user’s profile or comment on another user’s post, that information will be subject to the other user’s privacy settings.
If you use an external source to publish information to BounceME in Corp. (such as a mobile application or another site), you should check the privacy setting for that post, as it is set by that external source.
Information set to “everyone” is publicly available information, just like your name, profile picture, and connections. Such information may, for example, be accessed by everyone on the Internet (including people not logged into BounceME in Corp.), be indexed by third party search engines, and be imported, exported, distributed, and redistributed by us and others without privacy limitations. Such information may also be associated with you, including your name and profile picture, even outside of BounceME in Corp., such as on public search engines and when you visit other sites on the internet. The default privacy setting for certain types of information you post on BounceME in Corp. is set to “everyone.” You can review and change the default settings in your privacy settings. If you delete “everyone” content that you posted on BounceME in Corp., we will remove it from your BounceME in Corp. profile, but have no control over its use outside of BounceME in Corp..
We reserve the right to add special protections for minors (such as to provide them with an age-appropriate experience) and place restrictions on the ability of adults to share and connect with minors, recognizing this may provide minors a more limited experience on BounceME in Corp..
4. Information You Share With Third Parties
You (and those you make your information available to) may use tools like RSS feeds, mobile phone address book applications, or copy and paste functions, to capture, export (and in some cases, import) information from BounceME in Corp., including your information and information about you. For example, if you share your phone number with your friends, they may use third party applications to sync that information with the address book on their mobile phone.
Sometimes the advertisers who present ads on BounceME in Corp. use technological methods to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. You may opt-out of the placement of cookies by many of these advertisers here. You may also use your browser cookie settings to limit or prevent the placement of cookies by advertising networks.
When you click on links on BounceME in Corp. you may leave our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, and we encourage you to read their privacy statements.
5. How We Use Your Information
We use the information we collect to try to provide a safe, efficient, and customized experience. Here are some of the details on how we do that:
To manage the service
We use the information we collect to provide our services and features to you, to measure and improve those services and features, and to provide you with customer support. We use the information to prevent potentially illegal activities. We also use a variety of technological systems to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users.
To contact you
We may contact you with service-related announcements from time to time. You may opt out of all communications except essential updates on your account notifications page. We may include content you see on BounceME in Corp. in the emails we send to you.
To serve personalized advertising to you
We don’t share your information with advertisers without your consent. We allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of users who will see their advertisements and we may use any of the non-personally identifiable attributes we have collected (including information you may have decided not to show to other users, such as your birth year or other sensitive personal information or preferences) to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. Even though we do not share your information with advertisers without your consent, when you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that the advertiser may place a cookie in your browser and note that it meets the criteria they selected.
To serve social ads
We occasionally pair advertisements we serve with relevant information we have about you and your friends to make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. We only share the personally identifiable information visible in the social ad with the friend who can see the ad. You can opt out of having your information used in social ads in the privacy settings.
To supplement your profile
We may use information about you that we collect from other BounceME in Corp. users to supplement your profile (such as when you are mentioned in a status update). In such cases we generally give you the ability to remove the content or limit its visibility on your profile.
To make suggestions
We use your profile information, the addresses you import through our contact importers, and other relevant information, to help you connect with your friends, including making suggestions to you and other users that you connect with on BounceME in Corp.. For example, if another user imports the same email address as you do, we may suggest that you connect with each other. If you want to limit your visibility in suggestions we make to other people, you can adjust your privacy settings, as you will only be visible in our suggestions to the extent you choose to be visible in public search listings.
To help your friends find you
We allow other users to use contact information they have about you, such as your email address, to find you, including through contact importers and search. You can prevent other users from using your email address to find you using the search section of your privacy settings.
Certain downloadable software applications and applets that we offer, such as our browser toolbars and photo uploaders, transmit data to us. We may not make a formal disclosure if we believe our collection of and use of the information is the obvious purpose of the application, such as the fact that we receive photos when you use our photo uploader. If we believe it is not obvious that we are collecting or using such information, we will make a disclosure to you the first time you provide the information to us so that you can decide whether you want to use that feature.
If we are notified that a user is deceased, we may memorialize the user’s account. In such cases we restrict profile access to confirmed friends. We may close an account if we receive a formal request from the user’s next of kin or other proper legal request to do so.
6. How We Share Information
BounceME in Corp. is about sharing information with others while providing you with privacy settings that you can use to restrict other users from accessing some of your information. We share your information with third parties when we believe the sharing is permitted by you, reasonably necessary to offer our services, or when legally required to do so. For example:
When you make a payment
When you enter into transactions with others or make payments on BounceME in Corp., we will share transaction information with only those third parties necessary to complete the transaction. We will require those third parties to agree to respect the privacy of your information.
When you invite a friend to join
When you ask us to invite a friend to join BounceME in Corp., we will send your friend a message on your behalf using your name. The invitation may also contain information about other users your friend might know. We may also send reminders to them in your name.
When you choose to share your information with marketers
You may choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers that are not associated with BounceME in Corp. through on-site offers. This is entirely at your discretion and we will not provide your information to these marketers without your consent.
To help your friends and customers find you
By default, we make certain information you have posted to your profile available in search results on BounceME in Corp. to help your friends find you. However, you can control who can see some of this information, as well as who can find you in searches, through your privacy settings. We also partner with email and instant messaging providers to help their users identify which of their contacts are BounceME in Corp. users, so that we can promote BounceME in Corp. to those users.
To give search engines access to publicly available information
We generally limit search engines’ access to our site. We may allow them to access information set to the “everyone” setting (along with your name and profile picture) and your profile information that is visible to everyone. You can change the visibility of some of your profile information using the privacy settings.
To help improve or promote our service
Sometimes we share aggregated information with third parties to help improve or promote our service. But we only do so in such a way that no individual user can be identified or linked to any specific action or information.
To provide you with services
We may provide information to service providers that help us bring you the services we offer. For example, we may use third parties to help host our website, send out email updates about BounceME in Corp., remove repetitive information from our user lists, process payments, or provide search results or links (including sponsored links). These service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.
To advertise our services
We may ask advertisers outside of BounceME in Corp. to display ads promoting our services. We may ask them to deliver those ads based on the presence of a cookie, but in doing so will not share any other information with the advertiser.
To offer joint services
To respond to legal requests and prevent harm
We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law. This may include respecting requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, apply to users from that jurisdiction, and are consistent with generally accepted international standards. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.
Transfer in the event of sale or change of control
7. How You Can Change or Remove Information
Editing Your Profile
You may change or remove your profile information at any time by going to your profile page and clicking “Edit My Profile.” Information will be updated immediately.
Delete uploaded contacts
If you use our contact importer to upload addresses, you can later delete the list. You can delete the email addresses of friends you have invited to join on the Connections page.
Deactivating or deleting your account
If you want to stop using your account you may deactivate it or delete it. When you deactivate an account, no user will be able to see it, but it will not be deleted. We save your profile information (connections, photos, etc.) in case you later decide to reactivate your account. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and in doing so are asking us to maintain their information until they return to BounceME in Corp.. You will still have the ability to reactivate your account and restore your profile in its entirety. When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from BounceME in Corp.. You should only delete your account if you are certain you never want to reactivate it.
Limitations on removal
Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users. However, your name will no longer be associated with that information on BounceME in Corp.. Additionally, we may retain certain information to prevent identity theft and other misconduct even if deletion has been requested. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your information, they may retain your information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies. But they will no longer be able to access the information through our Platform after you disconnect from them.
Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 90 days, but will not be available to others.
Non-user contact information
If a user provides your email address to us, and you are not a BounceME in Corp. user but you want us to delete your address, you can contact us. However, that request will only apply to addresses we have at the time of the request and not to any addresses that users provide to us later.
8. How We Protect Information
Steps we take to keep your information secure
We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers and passwords), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also use automated and social measures to enhance security, such as analyzing account behavior for fraudulent or otherwise anomalous behavior, may limit use of site features in response to possible signs of abuse, may remove inappropriate content or links to illegal content, and may suspend or disable accounts for violations.
Risk inherent in sharing information
Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on BounceME in Corp. will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on BounceME in Corp.. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.
You should report any security violations to us.
9. Other Terms
Consent to Collection and Processing in the United States
By using BounceME in Corp., you consent to having your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.
