Gaspy Privacy Policy

Last updated June 2016

Introduction

Gaspy Ltd is the corporate name for Gaspy. In this Policy, we will refer to Gaspy Ltd as "Gaspy", "our", "us" or "we."

We take your privacy seriously. We are providing this Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information on our Service in accordance with our website Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy and our Community Rules. We also want to inform you about your choices regarding information. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Children's information

Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use Gaspy and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Therefore, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information permanently from our databases. We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent's permission before submitting information over the internet. By using Gaspy, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old, or that you are at least 13 years old and have a parent's or guardian's permission to use Gaspy.

User Consent

By using Gaspy, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy as well as our Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy. You expressly consent to the processing of your Personal Information and Anonymous Information according to this Privacy Policy.

Your Personal Information may be processed and stored in another country to your own (for example the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. Your Personal Information will not, however, be used or disclosed for purposes for which you have not given consent or which are not permitted under applicable law.

Collection of Information

We collect information in 2 basic ways:

  1. We collect information when you voluntarily provide your details to register for our Service. This can include the process of using a third-party social network system login process for authentication such as (but not limited to) Facebook, GPS location (if permitted), when you update your profile settings, and we also collect the information that you voluntarily provide.
  2. We collect information electronically (usually passively and automatically) through "cookies" and server logs.

What information we collect and how we use it

Personal Information

When you register as a User of Gaspy we will ask you for certain information about you that can be used to contact or identify you. This information may include (but is not limited to) your name, gender, profile photo, description, location, website and Facebook link. If you sign up using a third party authentication system such as Facebook you are allowing us to use your Personal Information from that particular third party system. This will only happen with your authorisation - via their login mechanism - with which you also agree to their terms of Service and privacy policies.

We will only use your Personal Information to personalise your Gaspy experience, contact you, or to provide the Gaspy Service to you. These Services include the following:

  1. Provide a personalised experience - We use your details to communicate personally with you and to indicate your actions on our website with people you chose to share your actions with.
  2. Communications - We use your email to send messages, notifications, important Gaspy updates, offers (these notifications can be controlled in your user settings area).
  3. Customer Service - we use your email to respond to your questions or enquiries.

Your Personal Information can also be used to enable you to network and for others to connect with you. For example, if you choose to display your Facebook link on your profile page. However, we will never reveal your email address to anyone. Your email is only used internally and will never be visible to anyone.

Non-Identifying Information

We collect other information that you provide to us by interacting with our mobile app or website. Non-Identifying information is information that cannot be reasonably used to identify or contact you.

We collect this information to gain insights on how our Service is used, with the objective of providing you with a better experience and to improve the quality and value of Gaspy.

We may share non-personal information, such as aggregated user statistics with third parties for a variety of purposes, in our sole discretion. But we only do so in such a way that no individual user is specifically identified or linked to any specific action or information.

Cookies

Like many online services, Gaspy uses "cookies" on our Service to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer or mobile device's hard disk. We use cookies for storing your User login status. We also provide third party advertising provided by Google. Google uses cookies to enable it and its partners to serve ads to you according to your preferences. If you are not happy with allowing Google cookies, you can opt out using this system: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ . You can configure your browser by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Service or all functionality of the Gaspy Service.

GPS Location

If permitted by you, Gaspy also collects your geo-location to localize your listings to share with others in your local area within a location radius specified by you. This is optional, but needed for the service to work effectively.

Sharing of Information

We care about your Privacy and we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information, although, we share your information in the following ways:

  1. Gaspy Users. When your register for the Gaspy Service, you provide us with your Personal Information, some of which is publicly viewable. Other users will be able to see some of your Personal Information which includes, but is not limited to: your username, photo, description and location (city). Providing additional Personal Information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with other Gaspy users. We recommend that you refrain from disclosing any information you consider to be sensitive or confidential.
  2. Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling or other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
  3. Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services (e.g., maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Service's features) or to assist us in analysing how our Service are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
  4. Facebook Connect (Social Graph), Twitter and other Social sites. We allow Users to link their Facebook account in order to use our service. Users can then post recent activity on our Service back to their Facebook accounts with the share function. No data will be automatically shared with Social Networks unless you interact with our "share" function. This is the only way your data will be shared to those Social sites.
  5. Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. Gaspy cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We can disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect the property and rights of Gaspy or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
  6. Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control. Gaspy reserves the right to disclose and transfer user information, including personal information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of certain stock and/or assets, or other corporate change including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.

Links to other sites and services

Our Service may contain links to other third-party websites and online services that have their own Privacy Policies. If you choose to visit another website or online service by clicking on a link, you will be directed to that third party's website or online service. The fact that we may link to a website or online service is not an endorsement, authorisation or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. As we do not have control of third party websites and their content, we cannot be responsible or liable for the content, conduct or consequences that may arise from visiting these sites. Nevertheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

How we protect your information

We care about the security of your information. We use commercially reasonable safeguards and precautions to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through our Service. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorised persons. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to logout of your account after use. If your Facebook account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorised use of your Gaspy account, so be careful to keep your account information secure.
