FRIENDED'S PRIVACY STATEMENT
Foundermark, Inc. (“Friended,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) has created this privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our user, (“You” or “Your”) regarding Your privacy with respect to information that You submit to Friended by or through the App or Services (defined below), whether You are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply explore the App (defined below)) or a “Member” of Friended (which means you have either registered with Friended and established an account). Visitors and Members are individually referred to as a “User,” and collectively, as “Users.”  

Privacy on Friended (the “App”) is of great importance to us. Because we gather important information from our Users of the App and related services provided by Friended, including our mobile application (the “Services”), we have established this Privacy Statement as a means to communicate our information collection, use and dissemination practices. In order to access and use the App and/or Services, you must agree to our Terms of Service and any other Applicable terms. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Statement will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms of Service.

The focus of our App and Service is to let You answer questions, that connects you with like-minded people to chat with.

So we are clear on the terminology we use, “Personal Information” means contact information (e.g., your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual, and any other non-public information that is associated with that information. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual.

BY USING OUR APP OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR APP OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

Children.
The App and Services are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our the App or Services is designed to attract people under 18 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 18 years of age, we will take steps to prevent the user from utilizing the App and the Services.

COLLECTED INFORMATION
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Services to you and helps us learn more about the use of the App and/or Services. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily at registration and in the course of using the App and/or Services, including, but not exclusive to, when you are logged in, your friends and the questions you answer on the App. To use the Services you must create an “Account” by providing your name, email address, gender, age, location, additional preferences, a password, and potentially additional information. You may connect to the App or Services through Facebook, in which case we may collect that information from Facebook for the purposes of creating your Account and playing the App. When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we will collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us.

When you register, we will create a profile for you that includes your first and last name and additional information, including, but not exclusive to, your gender, location, relationship status, your bio and a profile picture. If you registered through Facebook, we may use the information we collected about you from Facebook to pre-populate your Profile.

We will refer to all of the information contained in your Profile as your “Profile Information”. As your Profile Information is intended by you to be published on the App, your Profile Information will not be considered Personal Information under this Agreement, even if it contains Personal Information and we may use and disclose the Profile Information on the App without restriction. Some of your Profile Information may be provided by other Members.

If you access the Services from your mobile device, we will collect your unique device identifier, the application version you are using, and your event activity. Unless you are logged in, we will not associate this information with the Personal Information we note above.

If you choose to use our share, answer friend questions features, we will ask for your friends information. We will send your friend invites to the App.

Anonymous Information

As you use the App or Services, certain Anonymous Information may be passively collected and stored, such as your Internet protocol address, domain names, browser type, and access times. We may also use Cookies (as defined below) or web bugs and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which You searched and viewed, or on which advertisements displayed on the App You have viewed and/or clicked. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a App sends to your browser while you are viewing a App. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your browser until you delete them) to improve your experience on the App (e.g., by keeping you logged in). Many consider the use of cookies to be industry standard. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable Cookies, you may experience session errors and may need to log-in again for each page you visit on the App

Disclosure – Usage of Third Party Tracking
We may use a third party tracking service to track and analyze Anonymous Information from Users of our App. Such third parties may use Cookies, Android ID, UDID, email address and/or IDFA to help track User behavior.

Additionally, we may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products and/or services by placing advertisements on the App. These advertisers and ad servers may use unique identifiers in order to monitor information related to served advertisements. Clicking on such advertisements will direct You to the App of a third-party and the advertiser. This Privacy Statement does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers.  

Our Relationship with Social Networking Sites
We have created and may offer You interfaces that allow You to connect with social networking sites such as Facebook (“SN Site”) through our App. We will work with the SN Site’s application protocol interface (better known as their developer API) in a way that allows You to authorize us to access Your account on that SN Sites on Your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, You will not provide us with Your user name or password to the SN Site, but You will need to log-in to that SN Site directly through our App. Once authorized by You, the SN Site will provide us a token that allows the SN Site to recognize us when we ask, on Your behalf, for access to Your account information or to post information. You will be able to revoke our access to any SN Site at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within Your account settings on the Applicable SN Site, though such revocation may limit the Services we are able to provide You.

USE OF INFORMATION
Personal and Profile Information
We will use your Personal Information to:
• Administer your Account;
• Provide you and other Members with Services and customer support;
• Target content to You or on Your behalf
• Market our products and services (and those of third parties) to You that we believe may be of interest to You, including through the serving of personalized advertisements. For example, we allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of users who will see their advertisements and we may use any of attributes we have collected (including information You do not make available on the App) to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. For example, if you tend to answer questions about certain types of automobiles, we might use that interest to show You ads for jeeps.
