1. Information Collected by the Company. The Company may collect both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information from you. “Personal Information is any information that the Company could use to identify an individual. It does not include personal information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public information. Examples of Personal Information that may be collected includes, but is not limited to: (i) your name, mobile phone number, relationship status, relationship preference, physical address, and e-mail address, used to verify your identity in the event that you forget your login information; (ii) your credit and debit card account information, as needed for your subscriptions to the Platform; (iii) information provided by you through customer service correspondence and general feedback; (iv) your personal details pertaining to children, prior marriages, frequency of drinking and/or substance use (if any), interests, and preferences in a significant other; and (v) media content submitted to the Company by you, such as commentary about the Platform, testimonials, or other similar content shared by you through voice, text, or video. The Company may monetize Personal Information. “Non-Personal Information” is information that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. Examples of Non-Personal Information that may be collected includes, but is not limited to:

(a) Server Log Files. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your internet service provider. This number is identified and logged automatically in the Company’s server log files whenever you visit the Platform, along with the dates time(s) of such visit(s) and the page(s) visited. The Company may use your IP address for purposes such as calculating Platform usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Platform, and administering the Platform. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites.

(b) Cookies and Similar Technologies. The Company and its service providers, and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may use “cookies” or similar technologies on the Platform. “Cookies” are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for recordkeeping purposes. Cookies are an industry standard used by many websites and can facilitate a user’s ongoing access to and use of a particular Platform; cookies do not cause damage to computer systems or files. If you do not want information collected through the use of Cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline Cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular Cookie, or Cookies from a particular website to your computer. Additionally, please see the “User Choices” section below for instructions on how to opt-out of sharing certain information related to the use of Cookies.

(c) Environmental Variables. The Company and its service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as computer type (e.g. Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers and can be used to optimize your experience on the Platform.

(d) Pixel Tags. The Company, its service providers, and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Platform pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Platform usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Platform visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow the Company to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Platform, to deliver branded services, to provide online advertising, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened.

(e) Aggregate Usage Data. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF THE COMPANY COMBINES ANY NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION, THE COMBINED INFORMATION WILL BE TREATED BY THE COMPANY AS PERSONAL INFORMATION AS LONG AS IT IS SO COMBINED.

(f) Business Information. Any information related to a business organization, such as business name, trade name, logos, tag lines, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and phone numbers not tied to a specific individual employee, manager, agent, or similar personnel of a business.

3. Method of Collection. We collect Personal Information and Non-Personal Information through the Platform. Personal Information shall be: (i) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject; (ii) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; (iii) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed; (iv) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that Personal Information that is inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay (v) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Information is processed; (vi) Personal Information may be stored for longer periods insofar as the Personal Information will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes; and (vii) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the Personal Information, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organizational measures.

Typically, the information we collect directly from you includes, but is not limited to your contact details, payment or billing data, relationship status, relationship preferences, and information like the content of customer service requests that you initiate, reviews you submit on our products, or responses to surveys. However, payments are made through a third-party processor and the Company will not collect and retain your payment card details. You decide how much information to share with us in most cases, but not sharing required information may limit your ability to use the Platform, such as payment information required to complete a purchase.

(b) Information Automatically Collected. When you use our Platform, we receive and store information generated by your activity and other information automatically collected from your browser or mobile device. This information may include your IP address; patterns of activity during use of Platform; browser type and version; preferred language; geographic location using IP address or the wireless, or Bluetooth technology on your device; operating system and computer platform; purchase history; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our website (the “Site”), including date and time; and areas of our Site that you visited.

Abuse may include, without limitation, elder abuse, child abuse, spousal abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.

6. Removal or Alteration of Your Personal InformationYour account can request deletion from the Platform, or if you can provide the Company written notice of a request to remove your Personal Information from the Company’s records. In either case, the Company will endeavor to remove your account and its personal information as quickly as possible. You understand that any such removal is only intended to result in the removal of its Personal Information from the Company’s own records, but will not result in, nor will such request create an expectation of, any removal of any information about you from other available sources. If you are a California resident and have an established business relationship with us, you can request a notice disclosing the categories of personal information we have shared with third parties, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, during the preceding calendar year. To request a notice, please submit your request to support@wherewemet.com.

7. Security Measures. The Company has and maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of Personal or Non-Personal Information under the control of the Company. When the Company collects or transmits sensitive information such as a credit or debit card number, is uses industry standard methods to protect that information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with the Company is no longer secure, you agree to notify the Company of the problem within seven (7) days from your discovery of a security issue. Any delay by you to notify us of a potential security breach will result in your waiver any and all claims against us in relation to such breach. Notwithstanding the Company’s best efforts to incorporate security measures and protect your Personal and Non-Personal Information, the Company or third-parties may be subject to breaches of security. In the event of a data breach, unless the data breach is the direct result of the grossly negligent actions or inactions of the Company or the intentional misconduct of the Company, you expressly acknowledge that the Company will not be held liable for and hereby waive any claims against the company for any such data breach.

8. Retention Period. The Company will retain Personal and Non-Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. Please note that the Company has a variety of obligations to retain user-provided data, including to ensure that transactions can be appropriately processed, settled, refunded or charged-back, to help identify fraud and to comply with anti-money laundering and other laws and rules that apply to the Company. Accordingly, even if you close your account, the Company will retain certain data to meet its obligations. There may also be residual data that will remain within the Company’s databases and other records, which will not be removed.

9. Changes to this Privacy Policy. The Company may change this Privacy Policy from time to time in its discretion. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without explicit consent. Privacy Policy changes will be posted on the Platform and become effective as of the time of change.

12. Third Parties. To improve the Platform, related services, website, or marketing, we may engage with various outside partners that have access to the limited data users voluntarily share with the Company via the Platform, web forms, cookies, or customer support and sales inquiries. We carefully select each of our partners based on the Company’s commitment to user privacy and security. Our security team meticulously vets each prospective partner to ensure its policies and practices are on par with Company standards, thought we cannot guarantee that all third parties will have policies, standards, and practices that align with those of the Company.

Schedule B

Legal Process Guidelines

Where We Met is committed to operating in an environment of complete transparency and to cooperating with law enforcement while respecting each individual’s right to privacy.

Where We Met responds to valid legal process issued in compliance with U.S. law. Requests for user account information from U.S. law enforcement should be directed to Where We Met through proper service of process.

Service of Process

Where We Met accepts service of court orders, search warrants, and subpoenas for information by email from law enforcement and government agencies, provided that these legal requests are sent from an official government email address of the requesting agent. Law enforcement and/or government agencies should submit legal requests directly from their official government email address to support@wherewemet.com.

Private Information Requires a Subpoena or Court Order

Non-public information about Where We Met users’ accounts will not be released to law enforcement except in response to appropriate legal process such as a subpoena, court order, or other valid legal process.

Contents of Communications Are Not Available

Requests for the contents of communications require a valid search warrant from an agency with proper jurisdiction over Where We Met. However, our response to such a request will reflect that the content is encrypted data which is indecipherable.

What Must Be Included in Account Information Requests?

Law enforcement or government requests for user information must include:

  • Identifying information of the account for which information is requested, such as User ID or phone number
  • A description of information being sought

The descriptions should be as narrow and specific as possible in order to avoid misinterpretation and/or objections for overly broad requests. Where We Met will construe received requests narrowly to maintain users’ privacy and ensure that any information disclosed does not exceed the scope of the request.

Further, Where We Met requires law enforcement and/or government agencies to include the following information so that requests for user information may be validated:

  • Requesting law enforcement/government agency
  • Requesting agent name and badge/ID number
  • Valid agency e-mail address and physical return address
  • Phone number of requesting agent, including extension when applicable
  • Response due date
  • A copy of the court order, warrant, or subpoena

Will Where We Met Notify Users of Requests for Account Information?

Where We Met’s policy is to notify users of requests for their account information prior to disclosure including providing user with a copy of the request, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so or if there is danger of death or serious physical injury. As soon as legally permitted to do so, we will notify our users of requests for their information.

What Information Does Where We Met Store?

Where We Met has the following information about user accounts on Where We Met:

  • Date an account was created
  • Type of device(s) on which such account was used
  • Date of last use
  • Total number of sent/received messages
  • Number of external ID’s (email addresses and phone numbers) connected to the account
  • Avatar image (if user elected to provide one)
  • Limited records of recent changes to account settings such as adding or suspending a device (does not include message content or routing and delivery information)
  • Where We Met version number

Where We Met has the following information about organizations:

  • Where We Met ID (phone number or email address)
  • Date an account was created
  • Organization logo and splash screen
  • Organization internet domain (if admin elected to provide one)
  • Membership
  • Payment-related information

Organizations may deploy Where We Met services differently depending on the organization’s needs. Thus, the information Where We Met may be able to provide in response to a lawful request for user information will vary as well.

Emergency Disclosure Requests

Where We Met may provide information to law enforcement in response to a valid emergency disclosure request.

We review emergency disclosure requests on a case-by-case basis and evaluate them under applicable law (e.g., 18 U.S.C. § 2702). If we receive information that gives us a good-faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person, we may provide information to law enforcement to prevent that harm, if we have it.

Law enforcement officers can submit an emergency disclosure request via email: support@wherewemet.com.

Emergency disclosure requests must be on law enforcement letterhead and include all of the following information:

  • Identity of the person who is in danger of death or serious physical injury;
  • The nature of the emergency;
  • Where We Met ID (username) of the subject account(s) whose information is necessary to prevent the emergency;
  • The specific information requested and why that information is necessary to prevent the emergency;
  • The signature of the submitting law enforcement officer; and
  • Any other relevant details about the circumstances that we should take into account.

Preservation Requests

Upon receipt of a valid preservation request from law enforcement under applicable law, we will temporarily preserve the relevant account records for 90 days pending service of legal process. We will only disclose preserved records upon receipt of valid legal process.

Preservation requests should be on law enforcement letterhead, signed by the requesting official, and include a valid official email address. Preservation requests may be submitted via the methods described above.

Responding to Civil Subpoenas

Federal law does not allow private parties to obtain account contents (e.g., messages, attachments, etc.) from electronic communication service providers through civil subpoenas. See the Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2702.

Parties to litigation may satisfy party and non-party discovery requirements by seeking the contents of an account directly from the user.

Where We Met does not preserve account content in response to a request from a private party.

Where We Met may provide customer records in response to a valid subpoena issued by a federal or Nevada court where the requested information is indispensable to the case and not already within a party’s possession. It is Where We Met’s policy to give affected account holders prior notice before complying with such subpoenas.

Parties seeking basic subscriber information must specifically identify accounts by Where We Met ID.

We provide responsive records in electronic format. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement for the costs of producing records where appropriate.

Where We Met does not provide expert witness testimony. However, all substantive responses to legal process requests may be accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity of Business Records, if requested, which should eliminate the need for the testimony of a custodian of records.
