We're serious about privacy. We want to make sure that we are transparent and open about the way we use your data to make your experience better.
1. Why do we need your information?
2. What we collect.
a. Registration information
To create an account, we use information retrieved from your Facebook public profile (name, email) and education history. Additionally, we ask for your phone number to allow for communication to other users. This number will be masked.
b. Credit card information
To make and receive payments, we collect your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. Studybuddy uses a third-party payment processor (Stripe) and therefore has only limited information about your payment transactions.
c. Geographical information (Location)
When you use the mobile application, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location in order to determine the city you are located within and display a location map with relevant data. We may share your current location with other users or partners. If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your account settings or in your mobile phone settings and/or within the mobile application.
d. Device information
Our servers automatically record certain information about your mobile device to better understand the pain points and aggregate anonymous usage patterns of our users. This information may include information such as an equipment identifier (e.g., IMEI, UDID), subscriber identifier (e.g., IMSI), device name, device type and manufacturer, operating system type and version, network type, country of origin, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the dates and times of your requests.
3. Third-parties and your data.
We may share some or all of your data mentioned in the Registration information with third-party services. You will be notified as soon as possible when this occurs and for what reason. We may also disclose your information without your knowlege if required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process. Additionally, we may also disclose your information if we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. This extends to our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement
Here is a list of the third-party cookies that we use, which may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
a. Google Analytics
We do not use the Application to knowingly solicit data from, or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete such information from our database within a reasonable time.
