In addition to Your Information or other information that you choose to submit to us via our Platform, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) collect and store certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Platform (“Usage Information”). This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your mobile phone (your “Device”) whenever you visit or interact with our Platform.

The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Platform, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals). Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms.

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect Your Information. Unfortunately, no transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure, and transmission of information via the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information is not completely secure.

4. How and When Do We Disclose Information to Third Parties?
a. When You Request Information From or Provide Information to Third Parties.
You may be presented with an option on our Platform to receive certain information and/or marketing offers directly from third parties or to have us send certain information to third parties or give them access to it. If you choose to do so, Your Information and other information may be disclosed to such third parties and all information you disclose will be subject to the third-party privacy policies and practices of such third parties. In addition, third parties may store, collect or otherwise have access to your information when you interact with their Tracking Technologies, content, tools apps or ads on our Platform or link to them from our Platform. This may include using third party tools such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or other third-party posting or content sharing tools and by so interacting you consent to such third party practices. It may also include ordering or purchasing products from third parties through us where we indicate that the third party rather than us is the seller. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of such third parties and, therefore, you should review such third party privacy policies and practices of such third parties prior to requesting information from or otherwise interacting with them.
b. Third Parties Providing Services on our Behalf.
We may use third-party vendors to perform certain services on behalf of us or the Platform, such as: (i) to assist us in Platform operations; (ii) to manage a database of customer information; (iii) hosting the Platform; (iv) designing and/or operating the Platform’s features; (v) tracking the Platform’s activities and analytics; (vi) enabling us to send you special offers or perform other administrative services; and (vii) other services designed to assist us in maximizing our business potential. We may provide these vendors with access to user information, including Device Identifiers, only as necessary to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us. Third-party analytics and other service providers may set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, potentially including Your Information. We are not responsible for those third party technologies or activities arising out of them. However, some may offer you certain choices regarding their practices, and information we have been informed of regarding such choices is available in Section 5 below. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of or compliance with any third parties’ opt-out options.
c. Administrative and Legal Reasons.
d. Affiliates and Business Transfer.
We may share your information, including your Device Identifiers and Your Information and Usage Information with any parent, subsidiaries and affiliates. We also reserve the right to disclose and transfer all such information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Platform or applicable database; or (ii) in connection with a merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our interests and/or assets or other corporate change, including, during the course of any due diligence process.
e. Imminent Danger.
We may call 911 when it appears as though a user presents an imminent threat of harm to himself/herself or to others and will provide first responders with Personal Information about the user as requested.
f. Your California Privacy Rights.
As noted above, we may elect to share information about you with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California Civil Code § 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied personal information (as defined in the law) to us to, under certain circumstances, request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this law applies to you, you may obtain the categories of personal information shared by us and the names and addresses of all third parties that received personal information for their direct marketing purposes from us during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2017 will receive information about 2016 sharing activities). To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. To make such a request (limit one request per year), please send an email to: email@example.com, with “California Privacy Rights” as the subject line or mail us a letter to: 70 Prospect Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94110. You must include your full name, email address, and postal address in your request.
5. Do Third-Party Content, Links to Third-Party Apps and/or Third-Party Apps Appear on the App?
The Platform may contain content, links or apps that are supplied by a third party, and those third parties may collect Usage Information and your unique device identifier when pages from the Platform are served to you for their own commercial purposes. In addition, when you are on the Platform you may be directed to other apps and apps that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control. We are not responsible for the data collection and privacy practices employed by any of these third parties or their apps or apps and they may be tracking you across multiple online services and may be sharing the results of that tracking with us and/or others. These third parties may have their own terms of service, privacy policies or other policies and ask you to agree to the same. For example, if you “click” on a link, the “click” may take you off the Platform onto a different location. These other online services may associate their Tracking Technologies with you, independently collect information about you, including Personal Information, and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. We are not responsible for these third-party privacy policies or the practices of third-party owners. Be sure to review any available policies before submitting any personally identifiable information to a third-party application or otherwise interacting with it and exercise caution in connection with these applications. We also encourage you to note when you leave our Platform and to review the third-party privacy policies of all third-party locations and exercise caution in connection with them.
