Information with third parties (described in this Section and in Section III below). We collect the following
types of information:
A. Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. For example, we
collect Personal Information such as your name, email address, phone number, browser information, and third-party
account credentials (for example, your log-in credentials for Facebook or other third party sites). If you provide
your third-party account credentials to us, you understand some content and/or information in those accounts
(“Third Party Account Information”) may be transmitted into your account with us if you authorize such
transmissions, and that Third Party Account Information transmitted to our Website is covered by this Privacy
Policy. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to register with
us or to take advantage of some of our features. We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you cannot be
individually identified, and provide that information to our partners.
B. Information Collected Automatically:
- Whenever you interact with our Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs
from your browser including your IP address, “cookie” information, and the page you requested. “Cookies” are
identifiers we transfer to your computer or mobile device that allow us to recognize your browser or mobile
device and tell us how and when pages in our Website are visited and by how many people. You may be able to
change the preferences on your browser or mobile device to prevent or limit your computer or device’s acceptance
of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our Website’s features. Our advertising
partners may also transmit cookies to your computer or device, when you click on ads that appear on the Website.
Also, if you click on a link to a third party website, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. This
- When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website), we only use
this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate
data tells us how often users use parts of the Website, so that we can make the Website appealing to as many
users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners; our partners may use such
information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Website, so that they, too, can provide you
with an optimal experience. We never disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify
C. E-mail and Other Communications:
We may contact you, by email or other means; for example, we may send you promotional
offers on behalf of other businesses, or communicate with you about your use of the Website. Also, we may receive
a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make emails more interesting and improve
our service. If you do not wish to receive any emails from us, and want to delete your account, please visit the
my account page. Please note that if you do not
want to receive legal notices from us, those legal notices will still govern your use of the Website, and you are
responsible for reviewing such legal notices for changes.
III. WILL OPEN ME SHARE ANY OF THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?
We share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form with third parties as described below.
We allow advertisers and/or merchant partners (“Advertisers”) to choose the
demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we
may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an
Advertiser, in order for that Advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or
offers. For example, we might use the fact you are located in San Francisco to show you ads or offers for San
Francisco businesses, but we will not tell such businesses who you are.
We may deliver a file to you through the Website (known as a “web beacon”) from an ad
network. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us
and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit
other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s
servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from
B. Affiliated Businesses and Third Party Websites We Do Not Control:
In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may
sell items or provide services to you through the Website (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize
when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal
Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service.
One such service may include the ability for you to automatically transmit Third Party Account Information to your
Website profile or to automatically transmit information in your Website profile to your third party account. We
have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything
else, so if you choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to an affiliated website or business,
please review all such business’ or websites’ policies.
We employ other companies and people
to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to
you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share
with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
D. User Profiles and Submissions:
profile information, including without limitation a user’s name, location, and any video or image content that
such user has uploaded to the Website, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the
Website or address your request for Open Me’s services. Your account privacy settings allow you to limit the other
users who can see the Personal Information in your user profile and/or what information in your user profile is
visible to others. Any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any Personal Information or
content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards, in messages
and chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. Your user name may also
be displayed to other users if and when you send messages or comments or upload images or videos through the
Website and other users can contact you through messages and comments. Additionally, if you sign into the Website
through a third party social networking site or service, your list of “friends” from that site or service may be
automatically imported to the Website, and such “friends,” if they are also registered users of the Website, may
be able to access certain non-public information you have entered in your Website user profile. Again, we do not
control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
E. Business Transfers:
We may choose to buy or
sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that
would be transferred. Also, if we (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business,
enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information would be one of the assets
transferred to or acquired by a third party.
F. Protection of Open Me and Others:
the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to
comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the
rights, property, or safety of Open Me, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information
with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
G. With Your Consent:
Except as set forth
above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties in personally
identifiable form, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
IV. IS PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via a third
party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or
service. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting
your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and
browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but we
cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors,
may compromise the security of user information at any time.
The Website may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on
