2. The Information Triber Collects
Triber may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):
User Provided Information: You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your mobile phone number, push notification name (if applicable), billing information (if applicable) and mobile device information to Triber when choosing to participate in various uses of the Triber Service, such as registering as a user, updating your location or requesting location for your contacts. In order to provide the Triber Service, Triber will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Triber users (“in-network” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “out-network” numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.
Cookies Information: When you visit the Triber Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Triber uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Triber Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: When you use the Triber Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (« IP ») address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the Triber Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any status information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to.
3. The Information Triber Collects
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Application(s) on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and from where the application was downloaded. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile application(s).
4. The Information Triber Does Not Collect
Triber does not collect names, emails, addresses or other contact information from its users’ mobile address book or contact lists other than mobile phone numbers—the Triber mobile application will associate whatever name the Triber user has assigned to the mobile telephone number in his/her mobile address book or contact list — and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on Triber’s servers and is not transmitted to Triber. This means that if you have your friend’s mobile phone number associated with the name “Tony Stark” in your mobile address book, that’s the name that will appear for that mobile phone number in your Triber contact list. We do not collect location data, but users may voluntarily share, track, indicate, show their location with other users via the Triber Service.
The contents of messages that have been delivered by the Triber Service are not copied, kept or archived by Triber in the normal course of business. Users type their messages, which are sent via data service to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be a Triber user), if that recipient is online. If the recipient is not online, the undelivered message is held in Triber’s server until it can be delivered. If the message is undelivered for thirty (30) days, the undelivered message is deleted from our servers. Once a message has been delivered, it no longer resides on our servers. The contents of any delivered messages are not kept or retained by Triber — the only records of the content of any delivered messages reside directly on the sender’s and recipient’s mobile devices (and which may be deleted at the user’s option). Notwithstanding the above, Triber may retain date and time stamp information associated with successfully delivered messages and the mobile phone numbers involved in the messages, as well as any other information which Triber is legally compelled to collect. Files that are sent through the Triber Service will reside on our servers after delivery for a short period of time, but are deleted and stripped of any identifiable information within a short period of time in accordance with our general retention policies.
5. The Way Triber Uses Information
6. When Triber Discloses Information
We do not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information (such as mobile phone number) with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the Triber Service. We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Triber Site. We may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law), international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened. Triber also reserves the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Triber believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Triber Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Triber, our users or others.
7. Your choice
8. Our commitment To Data Security
Triber uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Triber and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Triber Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Triber makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Triber learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Triber may post a notice on the Triber Site or through the Triber Service if a security breach occurs.
9. Our commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Triber does not knowingly collect or maintain Personally Identifiable Information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Triber Site or Triber Service from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of the Triber Service is directed to or intended to be used by persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the Triber Service or access the Triber Site at any time or in any manner. If Triber learns that Personally Identifiable Information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Triber Site or Triber Service, then Triber may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible. And always, think of the children!
10. Special Note To International Users
11. In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that Triber is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the (hopefully) unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
