Protecting your privacy is one of our major missions along our way. The Policy lets you know how and for what purposes your personal information is being collected, processed, and used. We pledge that we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information will only be used in ways that are in compliance with this Policy.

This Policy applies to the Secret Santa App and (collectively, the “App”), owned and operated by Peter Riegler. (“we”, “us”, “the developer”) and the “Secret Santa” service accessed through our iOS and Android Mobile Applications (collectively, the “Service”). This privacy policy is designed to tell you how we collect and use personal information (as defined below) so you can make an informed decision about using our App and the Service. Your use of the app is also governed by Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) located below and which is hereby incorporated herein as if stated in full.

We will make an effort to update this web page with any changes to this Policy and you are encouraged to review this Policy frequently (the date of the most recent revision to this Policy appears at the end of this Policy).

Use of Information

In order to participate in certain features of the apps and the Service, we may require that individuals provide us with certain specific information that specifically identifies an individual (such as the individual’s full name and mobile number) and information about that individual’s location or activities, such as information about his or her use of the Service. The foregoing use includes submitting Feedback forms (as defined in the Terms located below) for use in connection with the apps and Service.

Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the apps or the Service or categories of the apps and Service users, from which any personal information has been removed. For example, information that 10% of users have invited others to use the Service is aggregate information. We collect aggregate data for a number of purposes, including to help us understand trends and user needs so that we can better consider new features, products and services, and tailor existing features, products and services, etc., to user desires. This policy in no way limits or restricts our collection of aggregate information.

Personal Information Collected

Personal information may be collected in a number of ways when you use the various services and activities available through the Service. At several places within our Mobile Application(s), we may collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain personal information. For example, if you begin using the Service, send us an email, or submit content, we may collect your name, and the mobile number which you provide. In addition, from time to time we may collect contact or other personal or demographic information you provide in connection with your participation in the app.

We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies”, which are small data files that are stored on a user’s hard drive at the request of a Web app to enable the app to recognize users who have previously viappd them and retain certain information, such as customer preferences and history. If we combine cookies with or link them to any of the personal information, we would treat this information as personal information. If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn about these functions.

Mobile Analytics

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).

Usage and Disclosure

In general, we use personal information we may collect (such as your name or phone number) to facilitate your use of the mobile application(s) and Service, to provide you with information, products and services you request, to administer and assist us with the operation of the apps and Mobile Application(s) and of our Service, and for the purpose for which the information was provided. For example, we may use the information we collect: (1) to respond to your emails, submissions, comments, requests or complaints, (2) to ensure that the Service is working correctly and that you are being served the most recent version.

In addition, if you so indicate in the event of sharing your contact information with us, we may use the information we collect to send you news and product and service updates, including contacting you about our services, products, activities, special events or offers and for other marketing, informational, product development and promotional purposes, including notifications about new features and or improvements to the apps or our products and services.

We may also receive information from third parties with whom we have business relationships, and may combine this information with the other personal information we have about you. In such cases, this Policy governs our use and disclosure of such information.

Information Shared with Third Parties

We do not rent, share, or sell any personal information to third parties in any ways different from what is disclosed in this Policy. We may, however, provide other non-personal information and aggregate information to third parties without your authorization.

In addition to the other times or occasions on which we might disclose information about users of the apps, we might also disclose information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a legal process and applicable laws; (b) enforce this Policy; (c) respond to claims that any materials, documents, images, graphics, logos, designs, audio, video and any other information provided from or on the apps or Service violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property or personal safety of the service, its users, or the public.

We use reasonable precautions to keep the information that is disclosed to us secure. We provide personally identifiable information and non-personally-identifiable information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other businesses or persons for the purpose of processing such information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such information in compliance with our Privacy Policy, and we use reasonable efforts to limit their use of such information and to use other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

We also reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information in connection with the enforcement of our Terms located below, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the apps and Service, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the developer, our users, or others.

We reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information, as well as any other information, in connection with the sale or other disposition of all or part of the developers business and/or assets. We also cannot make any representations regarding the use or transfer of your personally identifiable information or other information that we may have in the event of our bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, receivership or an assignment for the benefit of creditors. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties (including other users of the apps or Service) that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us. The apps also link to a wide variety of other web apps and the apps may contain advertisements of third parties. We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of those web apps of third parties or how they treat information about their users.

Any personal information that you may provide in a public or semi-public forum through the apps or Service are displayed to any person accessing the apps or Service. ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU SHARE IN A PUBLIC OR SEMI-PUBLIC FORUM IS NOT SUBJECT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. ADDITIONALLY, the developer HAS NO CONTROL OF THE FURTHER DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE TO ANY THIRD PARTY.

Measures Taken To Ensure Protection of Your Information

Secret Santa Apps endeavors to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure by putting into place measures to safeguard the information we collect. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and that we cannot guarantee that the apps or Service will be free of any defects or flaws that affect your use of it or the security of your information.

When you enter sensitive information or we automatically collect sensitive information on our forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We do not collect personally identifiable data from any person that we know to be under the age of thirteen (13).

Choices With Your Personal Information
