INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU

‘Personal Data’ relates to you and would allow us to determine the actual identity of, and contact, you specifically.  ‘Sensitive Data’ includes information, comments or content (for example pictures, video, profile information) that you may provide and that may reveal your ethnic origin, nationality, religion, physical or mental health or condition and/or sexual orientation.  By providing Sensitive Data to us, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of Sensitive Data as permitted by applicable privacy laws.

We may collect Personal Data, including Sensitive Data, and other information.

We will collect and process the following data about you:

_      Information you give us about you by filling in forms on the App, or by corresponding with us (for example, by e-mail or chat). This includes information you provide when you download and register to use the App (including name, address, age, email address, username, password, telephone number, occupation, country of origin, location, bio-profile, asylum status, refugee status, confirmation that you have not been convicted of any crime), donate to TimePeace using the App or website (including payment card information), share data via the App's social media functions, enter a competition, promotion or survey, interact with other individuals, post information on your profile (including interests, skills, abilities, language, profile picture) and when you report a problem with the App or our website. If you contact us, we will keep a record of that correspondence.

If you do so, you authorise us to access certain Social Account information, such as your public Social Account profile (consistent with your privacy settings in your Social Account), your email address, gender, birthday, education history, relationship interests, current city, photos, personal description, interests, likes, friend list.

 

_      If you chat with other TimePeace users, you provide us the content of your chats, and if you contact us with a customer service or other inquiry, you provide us with the content of that communication.

 

_      We collect technical information about your Device to understand how users use the App to improve your experience, such as your location of the App, IP address, your mobile identifier, details of your use of our App, including your visits to our website including, but not limited to traffic data and other communication data.

 

_      We are working closely with third parties (including, for example, partners, sub-contractors in technical and payment services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies). We will notify you when we receive information about you from them and the purposes for which we intend to use that information.

 

_      When you install or uninstall the App, the App may contain a unique application number and when such App searches for automatic updates, that number and information about your installation, for example, the type of operating system, may be sent to us.

 

_      We may use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later) to recognise you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our App. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted but advertising IDs can be reset in in your iPhone settings. Ad companies also use device IDs or advertising IDs to track your use of the App, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you.

COOKIES

Like most Apps, we also use cookies to provide users an efficient experience in using the App.

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your Device by your web browser.  Basically, it is a tool that stores information about App and website visits, recognises you and your preferences each time you visit, and ensures App functionality and enables us to provide the service which our users request.

A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the App uses to track the pages you have visited, but the only personal data a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of the App use cookies to track user traffic patterns. TimePeace does this in order to determine the usefulness of the App information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. TimePeace does not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor does it share this information or sell it to any third party. By using our App you accept our use of these cookies.

You may control and block the cookies used by the App by modifying the settings on your device. However, if you use your device settings to block all cookies you may not be able to access all or parts of our App.

For more detailed information about cookies and how they can be managed and deleted please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

INFORMATION SHARING

We generally do not share your personal data with any third party. We may, however, do so in the following circumstances:

_                to our service providers and other contractors for the purposes of providing our service to you (for example, to assist TimePeace’s marketing and support platforms, and data storage);

_                to other users of TimePeace where you use our services or social media features to provide information to other users;

_                to resolve user disputes or inquiries; and

_                where we are legally obligated to disclose information to the government or third parties for the purposes of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance.

 

Except as stated above, we will not disclose your personal data to any third parties for any other purposes unless we have your consent or we otherwise legally have the right or obligation to do so.

 

SECURITY MEASURES

How we protect your personal data: TimePeace has security measures in place to protect your personal data under our control. To help protect the personal data you transmit through the App, TimePeace uses industry-standard and secure server software that encrypts the information you input before it is sent to us. In addition, TimePeace uses standard industry practice to protect personal data against unauthorised access.

While TimePeace takes reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of its App, no app or internet transmission is completely secure and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We are unable to guarantee the security of your personal data while it is being transmitted to our App and any transmission is at your own risk. 

How you can keep your personal data secure: you should take steps to keep your personal data safe (including your password) and to log out of your account after use. Where we have provided you, or you have chosen a password which enables you to access TimePeace’s App, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential. You must not share it with anyone or store it in a way that may allow a third party to access it. If that happens, please report it to team@timepeaceapp.org. TimePeace cannot be held responsible for your failure to keep your password secure.

You should update your password periodically to help reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your account with us. When you do, you should strengthen your password with the combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, punctuation and other symbols.

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD COUNTRIES

TimePeace uses hosting services whose servers may be located in a number of countries. The data that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored by Amazon Web Services. It will also be processed by staff who work for us. These staff may be engaged in the provision of the services delivered through the App, the processing of your payment details for any donation(s) you may make, and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you expressly consent to the transfer, processing and storing of your personal data on servers. TimePeace will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

The App may contain links to third party sites. Access to any other Internet site linked to this App is at the user’s own risk and TimePeace is not responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any information, data, opinions, advice or statements made on these sites. TimePeace provides these links merely as a convenience and the inclusion of such links does not imply an endorsement. If you provide any third party with your personal data we recommend that you read their privacy policies as TimePeace does not control how they use their information.
