2. Usage of Information We are committed to protecting your privacy and earning your trust. It is our intent to give you as much control as reasonably practicable over the privacy and use of your General Information and your Personal Information (together, your “Information”). The Information we collect is used mainly to enhance and improve your experience using the Services.

  • Provide you with certain information and services relevant to Users like you (for example, content related to your specific mobile device).

  • Identify you when conducting customer service operations (such as providing service feedback, etc.)

3. Sharing Personal Information with Third Parties
Other than as expressly described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personal Information with any third-party, except in the following cases (and then, only to extent reasonably necessary under the circumstances): (a) to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, subpoena or governmental request; (b) to enforce this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations of it; (c) to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (d) to respond to your support requests; (e) to respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties; (f) to respond to claims that contact information (e.g. phone number, name, etc.) of a third-party has been posted or transmitted without their consent or as a form of harassment; (g) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the Company, its Users and the general public; (h) when the Company is undergoing any change in control, including by means of merger, acquisition or purchase of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company; or (i) pursuant to your explicit approval, in order to supply certain services you have requested from Company.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to Information that you choose to share with others, for example, by using the Services in connection with an External Network. For example, if you use the “Like A Drip” and/or the “Share A Drip” functionalities to post on an External Network, the External Network - and anyone privy to your updates on the External Network - will also receive that basic information. This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of any External Network or any other third-party.

4. Cookies and Local Storage
When you visit our Website or use the App, we may use industry-wide technologies such as "cookies" (or similar technologies) ("Cookies"), which store certain information on your device (“Local Storage”) and which will allow us to enable automatic sign-in to the Services and make your use of the Services more convenience and effortless. The reason we use Cookies is to collect certain Information about your use of the Services in order to enhance and improve your experience using the Services. However, if you do not want to enable us to use Cookies, most browsers will allow you to erase Cookies from your Local Storage, block acceptance of Cookies or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored.

We also may use certain third-party These are a different kind of Cookies, which are stored on your computer by a third-party site, rather than by the Company. This kind of Cookie is updated each time you visit our Website and also when you visit other websites that use similar Cookies. Third-Party Cookies usually only store General Information, such as the web pages you have visited and the duration of your browsing.

5. Advertising
From time to time, we may allow third-parties advertisers (“Advertisers”) to sponsor advertising content or links (“Ads”) that can be directly accessed from within the Services. In order to provide Ads that we think would be of most interest to our Users, we may share certain Information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) to Advertisers. However, before such Information is shared with the Advertisers, all Personal Information involved will be aggregated into anonymous statistics. For example, we might provide an analysis of data that says “1000 Users in California who accessed the App in the month of June using a Samsung Galaxy S4 shared a Drip on Facebook about free off-line map applications for Android.” That said, keep in mind that if you click through links to leave the Website or the App and go to the Advertisers’ sites, those sites may gather information about you. This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of any Advertiser or any other third-party.

If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these third-parties, check out the NAI (Network Advertising Initiative) website.
