WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES COMPANY COLLECT?
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve the Service. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you enter when using our app. The types of Personal Information collected include your full name, email address and your display photo.
Non-Personal Information Collected Automatically:
Communication Content. One of the primary reasons people use Stars is to communicate with others. Voice, text and pictures that you create to communicate with your contacts and colleagues will be stored on your device and on our servers for a period of time. The content is stored on the server for displaying the message history and to make messages available across different clients that users may use.
Location information. We do NOT automatically collect your location information.
We receive and store certain types of non-personal information whenever you interact with our Website or use the Service. For example, Company automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, browser, device and OS information, cookie data (if applicable), and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of messages sent and received via the Service and visitors to our Website, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Company only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Service or Website so that we can make them appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve them as necessary. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Service or Website. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use the Service or Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal level of service and online experience. Again, Company never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
Inviting contacts: When you invite your contacts to Stars using SMS or eMail, the SMS or email is sent via using your SMS or Email applications. We never send any messages on your behalf.
E-mail Communications: We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from Company if your computer supports this type of program. Company uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. When you receive e-mail from Company, you can opt out of receiving further e-mails by following the included instructions to unsubscribe.
Deleting your account To delete your account from Stars, please send us an email at help@GetStarsApp.com
WILL COMPANY SHARE ANY OF THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?
Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only as described below.
Ad Networks: At some point, if we choose to display ads within the service, we will need to potentially share some information with the ad networks to provide relevant and effective ads to our customers.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, Company’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.
Promotional Offers: We may send offers to you on behalf of other businesses. However, when we do so, we do not give the other business your name and address. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please send an email with your request to privacy@GetStarsApp.com.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Company, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Company may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of Company and Others: 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 Company, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
