Information We Collect

Personal Information We Affirmatively Collect From You

We may collect Personal Information about you through our Service when you register to obtain an account, such as your name and email address. Other information you may affirmatively provide to us is generally maintained along with Personal Information. You can choose not to provide any information that is affirmatively requested of you. However, this may limit your ability to use the Service.

In addition to collecting information on the Service, we may collect information from you when you communicate with us over the phone or via e-mail. This information may include Personal Information. This information may be matched with, and stored in connection with Personal Information provided or collected in connection with the Service.

Information Collected Automatically

We will collect location data from your mobile device each time you use the app.

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page on our Service. When you access the Service, 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, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other similar information.

We may use mobile analytics software and various backend systems to analyze certain information regarding your use of the App and Service such as name, email address, device serial number.

We will also track search terms that you enter while using the Service to improve the performance of the Service’s search features, rank relevance of search results and evaluate new Service features. In general we will store tracking information in an anonymous aggregated form, however, we or our third party tracking partners may store certain information, such as pageviews, in a manner that can be associated to specific users.

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 to simplify the login process by storing your username and user login and to learn about your behavior and usage patterns when you are on our Service. We do not use cookies to collect personal information about you. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s 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.

How We Share Your Information

Personally Identifiable Information: Swaive will not rent or sell your Personal Information to others. To operate the Service, however, we may share your Personal Information with our agents, representatives, contractors, partners and service providers so they can provide us with support services and other features. We require these third parties not to use your Personal Information for any other purpose. We allow you to opt out of sharing your Personal Information with such third parties. We may store Personal Information in locations outside the direct control of Swaive (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for our Service. Non-personally identifiable information may be stored indefinitely.

Instances where we are required to share your information: Swaive will disclose your information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to enforce our Terms of Use or to protect the security or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Swaive, our users or others.

What happens in the event of a change of control: We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of our products, services, assets and/or businesses.

Storage and Processing

Your information collected through the Service may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Swaive or its subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. Swaive may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information, to affiliated entities, or to other third parties across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or any other country in which Swaive or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Your Choices About Your Information

You may review your Personal Information and data that we collect from you by logging into your account via the App. The Service does not currently allow users to correct or delete their Personal Information.

How We Protect Your Information; Security and Passwords

Swaive takes what it believes to be commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Information. However, since no security system is impenetrable and “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information or Browsing Information.

If you create an account to use the Service, you may be asked to choose a password for your account, which can be used to access information associated with your account (including Personal Information). You should choose a password that is not easy to guess, and does not use words that you would find in a dictionary. Do not disclose your password to any other person. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and we will attribute activities that occur using your account information (e.g., through the use of your password) to you. If you suspect that your password has been compromised contact us immediately at support@Swaive.com.

Email Communications That We May Send

We may send you, or you may elect to sign up to receive, emails from us. To help us understand whether we are providing information of interest to you, we may include software code or other tracking technologies in our emails to monitor whether you opened a particular email, whether you have clicked on the images and/or links in the email, the date and time the message was opened, and whether your computer is capable of receiving HTML-based email. We endeavor to allow you to unsubscribe at any time from our email programs by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email message. We reserve the right to send you service announcements or similar administrative messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.

Compromise of Personal Information

In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Swaive will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law. In the event that we or our Service suffers a data security breach that requires us to provide you with notice, such as under applicable law, you consent to allow us to provide you with such notice by sending an e-mail to the primary e-mail address that is associated with your account.

Notification Procedures

It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on the Service, as determined by Swaive in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Privacy Policy.

Children’s Privacy

Swaive does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to access or use the Service or to provide any personal information to Swaive. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at support@Swaive.com.

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites or services linked to or from the Service, including the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Service to another website, our Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link or advertisement on our website, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies. We encourage our users to be to familiarize themselves with the privacy statements of all websites that they visit and interact with.

If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personally identifiable information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to support@Swaive.com.
