Jarbik US Privacy Policy

Last updated: July 31, 2018

This privacy policy explains how Jarbik, LLC and its corporate affiliates (“Jarbik,” or “we”, “us”, “our”) collect, use and share personal information (“Personal Information”) which we collect via the services offered on our Jarbik mobile app, and/or the Jarbik website located at http://jarbik.com (collectively, the “Platform”).

We take our privacy obligations seriously, and use the Personal Information provided to us only as specified in this privacy policy. Please read this privacy policy carefully so that you can make an informed decision about using the Platform. If you do not agree to this privacy policy, you may not use the Platform. By registering an account to use the Platform, and by using the Platform, you are agreeing to this privacy policy and consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information as described in this privacy policy. Please note we make the Platform available through specific user applications that are created for, and administrated by, our Jarbik clients (each, a “Client Application”). For more information, see Sections 5 and 6, below.

1. WHAT INFORMATION DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

This privacy policy covers the Personal Information that is collected on or through the Platform, and from which an individual may be personally identified. Personal Information includes, without limitation, an individual’s name, email, street address, telephone number, geolocation information, image, gender, and other such information provided by the individual.

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE

We will collect Personal Information when you register an account with us, use the Platform or its features to communicate or interact with others via the Platform, or register to receive updates from us. As part of the registration process, we may collect login information such as your username, password, and security questions and answers. After registering an account, you may also choose to provide certain profile information, including your age, gender, profile image, political affiliation, etc.

We may, with your permission, collect third party contact information (including, without limitation, names, telephone numbers, emails and social media handles, if available) from your mobile address book.

We receive Personal Information when you choose to connect social media or other third party accounts and applications with your account.

When using the Platform, you may send messages to other users of the Platform or to external recipients. As part of the service, we receive copies of the messages you send to, and receive from, these individuals. We also receive any communications you send to us regarding the Platform or our services.

We may also collect other “non-identifiable” information about you, such as demographic information (e.g., your age) or certain information about your preferences and interests. If we combine demographic or other non-identifying information we collect about you that allows you to be identified, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.

Finally, we may also collect geolocation information as provided by your phone or other mobile device to the extent that you allow this option on your mobile device. If you access our Platform through a mobile device, you may adjust the settings on your mobile device to allow or prevent the sharing of location information. For example, you can disable “Location” (or “Location Services” on iOS-based devices) on your mobile device to prevent sharing your location information with Jarbik, or only disable “Bluetooth” to prevent the sharing of information collected via nearby Bluetooth proximity beacons. Please note that if you disable the sharing of location information, you may be unable to access some features of our Platform that are designed for mobile devices.

INFORMATION OTHERS SHARE ABOUT YOU

We may receive Personal Information about you from other users of the Platform. This may happen if they connect their address books to our services, or if they invite you to use our services via the Platform. Additionally, we may also receive Personal Information about you from the Jarbik client administering the Client Application. If you have received a text message through our services, your information was uploaded to the Platform through the Jarbik client that contacted you. We will treat all such Personal Information in accordance with this privacy policy.

INFORMATION YOU DISCLOSE THROUGH USE OF THE PLATFORM

The Platform may allow you to transmit or share certain content or text messages (“Content”) via the Platform. We may contract with third parties to help facilitate the transmission or sharing of your Content through the Platform. You should note that other people may be able to view your Content once it has been transmitted through, or uploaded to, the Platform, and may use or share it with third parties. For example, when you complete your profile information, we will give you the option to provide certain information that will be publicly viewable. If you provide information or a profile picture to be published on your profile, this information will be publicly accessible on the Platform. We have limited control over who views your Content while it is being transmitted through the Platform and no control over who views your Content after it has been transmitted through or uploaded to the Platform, or any third party uses that are made of your Content. This privacy policy will not apply to third party uses of any Content after it is transmitted through the Platform.

Content may be published in any media or format. We may also publish your name and likeness with your Content, and we may use your Content, or any portion of it, for advertising, marketing, publicity and promotional activities. For full terms and conditions regarding Content you submit to the Platform, please review the Platform’s Terms of Use.

2. COLLECTION OF NON PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use a technology called "cookies" to store session information. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. We use Session Cookies to track your account login status. This cookie is only ever transmitted over HTTPS. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We use persistent cookies to determine from where you were referred to our website, as well as the last user ID that you used to log in. We may set and access our cookies on your computer; cookies are required to use the Services. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" directory. See here for information on cookies: http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

The use of cookies by our partners and affiliates is not covered by this privacy policy. We do not have access or control over those cookies.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track visitors’ and users’ movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We link this automatically-collected data to Personal Information. IP addresses are tied to Personal Information to better gauge our visitors’ and users’ needs and provide specific information to best serve them.

We may partner with a third party ad network to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner may use cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.
