PinEventz Privacy Policy

PLEASE READ OUR PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU USE OUR WEB SITE.

This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") covers the website www.pineventz.com (the "Site"), owned and operated by Alpha Media LLP ("PinEventz", "we", "us" or "our"), and all services provided on the Site (the "Service"). By visiting the Site, submitting information or using the Service, you are accepting the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use (which can be accessed at www.pineventz.com /terms of use). This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that PinEventz does not own or control, or to individuals that PinEventz does not employ or manage.

Description of Service

PinEventz is an online service that allows people to Pin and share life events. Our users create profiles which are shown to people in their personal network. A personal network consists of a user's family and friends as listed by the user on the Site, plus the people that a user is connected to via their family and friends. Some personal information we ask for is displayed to other users within these personal networks. Users can mark events as private or viewable by their personal network.

Information We Collect

We collect user-submitted information such as name and email address to identify users and send notifications related to the use of the Service. For paid services, users will be asked to submit financial information such as their credit card number. We also collect user-submitted content for events, such as descriptions, photos and comments.

We automatically receive and record certain traffic data on our server logs from the user's browser including IP address, internet service provider, date and time stamp, referring and exit pages, browser type and the web pages requested. PinEventz uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends and administer the Site. We also automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users to the Site. This information is only used in the aggregate.

Use of the Information

Account information as well as full name, events, photos and comments are displayed according to whether a user classifies the event on the Site as private or viewable by his or her personal network. Email address and full name are used when a user invites a friend via email to join the Service, when a user requests to add another user to a group or when we send notifications to a user related to the use of the Service. Except when inviting or adding other users, a user's email address is not shared or displayed within a user's personal network. Users within a personal network communicate with each other through the Service without disclosing email addresses. A user's email address may also used to send notifications when a user adds or updates events, asks questions, makes comments, sends invitations, resets passwords, creates relationships and when we receive payments. Notifications are only sent from other users that you already connected to. We will send periodic emails to you regarding site enhancements, service alterations and other marketing communications. At any time, you may opt out of email altogether or choose not to receive certain email notifications. We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the administration of the Site.

Sharing of the Information

As a matter of policy, except where you are expressly informed otherwise, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information, unless we have your consent. However, PinEventz may share aggregate usage information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers, subsidiaries, affiliates and other third party service providers only to the extent required for such third parties to provide their services so that PinEventz can present to users more targeted products, services and advertising.

We use outside vendors to fulfill various services, such as a financial transaction processing company to bill you for goods and services. When you sign up for a paid services we offer, we will share only that information necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited by contract from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of PinEventz, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if PinEventz, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred.

Except as set forth above, you will be notified through the Service by email and a notice on the web site when your personal information may be shared with third parties.
