Effective as of January 9, 2015
The Site is a general audience site and FindChatFriends does not knowingly collect PII from children under 12 years of age.
COLLECTION OF PII BY FindChatFriends
General. When FindChatFriends collects PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting PII to us in order to register as a Member of FindChatFriends. FindChatFriends may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in FindChatFriends Services activities like sweepstakes, contests, games and surveys, or because you want us to furnish you with products, services, newsletters, or information, or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to FindChatFriends for review. Other PII including first and last name, location, and mobile telephone numbers may also be collected. We may also obtain PII from reputable third parties.
In addition, FindChatFriends collects other non-PII including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage and improve the FindChatFriends Services, track usage, and for security purposes.
FindChatFriends Members may also choose to provide or store non-PII information in their profiles, including but not limited to groups with whom they are affiliated, videos and/or pictures, (collectively "Profile Information"). The Profile Information in a Member's profile is provided at his or her sole discretion.
FindChatFriends Members can change their Registration PII and Profile Information at any time by controlling their account settings, available within the "Settings" portion of their FindChatFriends profile.
You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the FindChatFriends Services.
Some of the advertisements that appear on the Site are delivered to you by third party Internet advertising companies. These companies utilize certain technologies to deliver advertisements and marketing messages and to collect non-PII about your visit to or use of FindChatFriends Services, including information about the ads they display, via a cookie placed on your computer that reads your IP address.
Third party applications (such as widgets) created by third party developers may also be available on or in connection with the FindChatFriends Services. Third party applications are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that users may be able to install into profiles, use to access the FindChatFriends Services, or share with other Users. However, FindChatFriends does not control the third party developers, and cannot dictate their actions. When a Member engages with a third party application, that Member is interacting with the third party developer, not with FindChatFriends. FindChatFriends encourages Members not to provide PII to the third party's application unless the Member knows the party with whom it is interacting.
USE: FindChatFriends'S USE OF PII
In order to locate other FindChatFriends Members that you may already know in the physical world, FindChatFriends allows Users to search for Members using Members location details. If you have consented to receive promotional materials from FindChatFriends, FindChatFriends may periodically use your email address to send you such notifications related to the FindChatFriends Services.
FindChatFriends employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your PII. FindChatFriends may share your PII with outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (i.e., message boards, sweepstakes administration, order fulfilment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging and prize fulfilment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes.
These outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your PII to provide FindChatFriends with a specific service and not for any other purpose without your consent. FindChatFriends may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfilment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII. FindChatFriends also may share your PII with Affiliated Companies if it has a business reason to do so.
As described in "Notice" above, FindChatFriends may customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the Site, or may work with outside companies to do so. Your non-PII may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. FindChatFriends prohibits these companies from sharing your information with any third party or from using it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream, number of page views calculated by pixel tags, and aggregated demographic information may also be shared with FindChatFriends's advertisers and business partners.
There may be instances when FindChatFriends may access or disclose PII or non-PII without providing you with a choice in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of FindChatFriends, our Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of Users of the FindChatFriends Services or members of the public, including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if FindChatFriends sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, FindChatFriends may transfer your PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
SECURITY: FindChatFriends PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
FindChatFriends uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII and credit card information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, FindChatFriends uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete.
ACCESS, REMEDIES AND COMPLIANCE: HOW TO ACCESS, CORRECT OR CHANGE YOUR PREFERENCES REGARDING YOUR PII AND HOW TO CONTACT FindChatFriends ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS
