(“we”, “us” or “our”). 

This Privacy Policy applies to information Carrierfy collects through the Services, as well as other information provided to us online or offline by third parties, when we associate that information with customers or users of the Services; however, it does not apply to information collected from our employees, contractors, or vendors.  It also does not apply to information that you share with third parties or is collected by third parties through the Services (including [web traffic or crash analytics tools]).  You acknowledge and agree that Carrierfy is not responsible for the data collection or use practices of any other Services user or third party utilized in providing the Services.

  • The city and state in which you are located (but not your precise geographic location).

We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties as described below.  

We may disclose Personal Information to provide the Services, or when you authorize or instruct us to do so, for example when you use the Services to submit content or profile information. The Services are a social experience, so we may disclose your interactions with the Services to other users, including, without limitation, information that you post on the Services for other users to access and view.We may also disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers, or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our website, marketing of our products and services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics).  We may license third party software to include in or use with the Services, in which case we may disclose Personal Information and/or Non-Personal Information to the licensor.

We may partner with advertisers to provide you with special offers, or to advertise products or services to you.  If you redeem or respond to an offer, we may provide your Personal Information to the advertising partner, such as your name, email address, and gender. If you answer questions or fill out surveys from an advertiser, we may share information with that advertiser. The advertising partner’s privacy policy will govern their use of your information, which may include marketing of other products or services to you.  You should read each advertiser’s privacy policy before providing information to that advertiser.

We may also disclose your Personal Information to other users to process or complete transactions or requests that you or such other users of the Services request, including, without limitation, revealing your personal information to users who have accepted an offer to connect sent by you in connection with your use of the Services.

We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

Lastly, we may also disclose non-Personal Information, or de-identified Personal Information aggregated with information about our other users, to our clients, business partners, merchants, advertisers, investors, potential buyers and other third parties if we deem such disclosure, in our sole discretion, to have sound business reasons or justifications. 

5.       Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies

Every time you use the Services (e.g., access a Service webpage, navigate to a specific location within the Service mobile app), we collect information regarding that use.  For example, to improve our Services, we collect how, when, and which parts of the Services or its features you use,, and when, how, and your email address for such purposes as authentication.  Also, we may use your device’s unique identifier (UDID), media access control address (MAC Address), or other unique identifiers to assist us in collecting and analyzing this data.

To assist us in collecting and storing this information, we may employ a variety of technologies, including “Cookies,” local browser storage, and “Web Beacons.”  A “Cookie” is a small amount of data a website operator, or a third party whose content is embedded in that website, may store in your web browser and that the website operator or, as applicable, the third party, can access when you visit the website.  A Cookie may also refer to web-browser-based storage provided by Adobe’s Flash plugin (a “Flash Cookie”).  A “Web Beacon” is a small, usually-transparent image placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third party, to read or write a Cookie.

Your operating system and web browser may allow you to erase information stored in Cookies, Flash Cookies, and local browser storage. But if you do so, you may be forced to login to the Services again and you may lose some preferences or settings.  You may also be able to set your browser to refuse all website storage or to indicate when it is permitted, but some features of our Services may not function properly without it.  We may use Cookies to keep you logged in, save your preferences for the Services, and to collect information about how you use our Services. 

To help us collect this information, we use third-party software and services.  These third parties’ collection and use of non-Personal Information are subject to their own privacy policies. For example we use Google Analytics to perform these functions, and you may review their privacy policy here

The Services are not intended for users under13 years of age.  We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from users under 13 years of age.  We do not authorize users under 13 years of age to use the Services. 

7.       Information Security

We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information against unauthorized access, modification, or destruction.  For example, we utilize Secure Socket Layer SSL), Transport Layer Security (TLS), or similar encryption technology when sensitive data is transmitted over the Internet, and use firewalls to help prevent external access into our network.  However, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.

We restrict access to Personal Information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, improve or support our Services. If we share Personal Information with service providers, we require [in writing] that they also use reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information[, comply with any applicable laws or regulations with respect to information security,] and only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we share it with them.
