By downloading and installing our App, you agree that we can collect, transfer, store, disclose and use your information as described in this Policy. Resonate is a global app, and your information will be sent to and used in the United States regardless of the country you reside in, and by downloading our App you consent to such transfer.
If you have any questions or comments about this Policy, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION.
When you download the App and create an account (“Account”), we may collect certain information (“Registration Information”) about you, such as:
Date of birth;
Login information and friend lists from Facebook that you use to create and connect to your Resonate Account (“Social Media Accounts”).
You may also be required to create a username and password in connection with the registration of your Account.
This information helps to enhance the App and verify our Users (and to prevent robots). Registration Information such as your name and username may be visible to the public on your profile page.
We may also collect additional information in connection with your use of Resonate, such as comments and posts, or if you use our super cool electronic messaging function.
If you contact our Customer Support team, we will receive your email address and may track your IP address as well as the information you send to us to help resolve your query. We will keep records of our communications with you, including any complaints that we receive from you about other Users (and from other Users about you).
We recommend and encourage you (and all our members) to think carefully about the information you disclose about yourself. We also do not recommend that you put email addresses, URLs, instant messaging details, phone numbers, full names or addresses, credit card details, national identity numbers, drivers’ license details and other sensitive information on your profile which is open to abuse and misuse.
Please be careful about posting sensitive details about yourself on your profile such as your religious denomination and health details. While you may voluntarily provide this information to us when you create your profile, including your sexual preferences and ethnic background, there is no requirement to do so. Please remember that photographs that you post on Resonate may reveal information about yourself as well. Where you do upload and choose to tell us sensitive information about yourself, you are explicitly consenting to our processing of your information and making this public to other users.
When you post information about yourself or use the messaging function, the amount of personal information you share is at your own risk. Please see Section 4 below for more information on who can access what you post on Resonate. If you post anything that is inconsistent with our Terms and Conditions of Use, we reserve the right to terminate your Account.
IF YOU PROVIDE A CELL PHONE NUMBER TO RECEIVE SMS MESSAGES FROM RESONATE, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO RECEIVE SMS MESSAGES FROM US PROMOTING OUR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO FEE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SERVICE, YOUR CARRIER MAY CHARGE YOU FOR EACH MESSAGE YOU RECEIVE. YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH CHARGES. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO CONTINUE TO RECEIVE ANY MESSAGES VIA YOUR MOBILE DEVICE, YOU MAY OPT-OUT AT ANY TIME BY TEXTING “STOP” IN RESPONSE TO A MARKETING SMS MESSAGE.
By using the App, you agree and acknowledge that Resonate is a global app operating through servers located in a number of countries around the world, including the United States. If you live in a country with data protection laws, the storage of your personal data may not provide you with the same protections as you enjoy in your country of residence. By submitting your personal information, or by choosing to upgrade the services you use, or by making use of the applications available on Resonate, you agree to the transfer of your personal information to, and storage and processing of your personal information in, any such countries and destinations.
If you turn these features on, we may collect your device’s geolocation data and save your device’s coordinates to offer certain features to you. We may also use your device’s geolocation information to personalize the App and make it easier for you to interact with other Users. You can control your location information settings and radius in your Account settings. Even if you have disabled location services, we may still determine your city, state, and country location based on your IP address (but not your exact location).
Log and Usage Data
Our servers automatically record information (“Log and Usage Data”) created by your use of the Service, which again helps us to improve our service. Log and Usage Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, access times, your mobile carrier, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with Resonate and advertisements, may also be included in Log and Usage Data.
We may collect information about your device when you use the App including the unique device identifier, device model, operating system, and MAC address. In addition, if you permit us to do so, the App may access your device’s address book and contact lists in order to offer you certain features of our Services.
We may keep track of how you interact with links available on Resonate including third party services and clients by redirecting clicks or through other means. We may share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
Cookies are small data files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk. Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve Resonate, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our App such as searching and looking at public User profiles or lists.
The cookies we collect enable us to learn how people interact with Resonate, which in turn helps us make a better product for you! Cookies store information about your website visits and can recognize you and your preferences each time you visit Resonate. They help us to provide a better service to you!
If for any reason you decide that you do not want all of your Resonate activities to be stored you may set your browser and mobile settings to block cookies and local storage devices, but please remember that if you do so, you may not be able to access all of the features Resonate offers!
We use the following types of cookies:
|Cookie Functions||Cookie Purposes|
Analytics and research
Security and site integrity
We may use persistent cookies, which will help us to ensure we have identified the same device is logging into the correct account. These cookies help us combat the bad guys – they help with our anti-spam measures and may help us to prevent phishers, scammers, unauthorized log-in attempts to your Account and accessing any hacked accounts.
Site features and services
We need to use certain cookies and save data to your local storage devices to ensure our members have the best possible experience. They assist with your navigation of our App, ensuring pages load quickly and respond promptly to your requests – no one likes snail pace technology!
2. USE OF INFORMATION.
Our main goal is to ensure your experience on Resonate is satisfying. In order to deliver an enjoyable experience to you, we may use your Registration and other information to:
offer you our services and features;
contact you with information about the App (e.g., updates and new offerings);
personalize the App and the content we deliver to you;
conduct research and analytics about how you use and interact with the App;
resolve disputes between you and other Users; and
investigate fraud, protect our legal rights, and to enforce our Terms & Conditions.
3. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION.
Our policy is to not disclose your Registration Information, except in the limited circumstances described here:
Your Consent – If you consent, we may share or disclose your Registration Information, such as when you use a third party web client or application to access your Account.
Service Providers – We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your Registration Information with these third parties, but only for the purposes of performing these functions and providing such services.
Law and Harm – As we mentioned in our Terms and Conditions, we think it is very important that all Resonate Users behave while using the App. We will cooperate with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other rights. We will also cooperate with law enforcement inquiries from within or outside your country of residence. This may include preserving or disclosing any of your information, including your Registration Information, if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to comply with a law or regulation, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect our rights or property or those of third parties. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
Business Transfers – In the event that Resonate or any of our affiliates are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information – We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services and for marketing purposes. You may opt-out of receiving marketing messages by using the opt-out mechanisms and links provided in each email.
4. WHAT OTHERS MAY SEE ABOUT YOU.
We think our Resonate Users are great, and we want you to share how great you are, so we have built certain features to enable this. Our App is designed to make it easier for you to connect with other Users and to interact with them. If you register or login to the App using your Facebook account, you are authorizing us to access certain Facebook account information, including information you make available via Facebook, your friends list, relationship status, current location and those friends you have in common with other Resonate Users. You also understand that your Resonate profile and other information you make available via the App, including information you provide directly or indirectly through Facebook (i.e., your Facebook photos, your name, age, approximate location, friends you have in common with other Resonate Users and other profile information), may be viewed and shared by Resonate Users with individuals who may or may not be Users or via third-party applications in such Resonate Users’ discretion.
When using Resonate, you should assume that anything you post or submit on the App may be publicly-viewable and accessible, both by Users of the App and non-Users of the App. Before you post this information, be aware that this content may be searchable by search engines – nothing gets past those guys! We want our Resonate Users to be careful about posting information that will eventually be made public.
5. MODIFYING YOUR REGISTRATION INFORMATION.
You may access or modify the Registration Information you provided at any time or permanently delete your Account (although we really hope you don’t!)
When your Account is deactivated, we take reasonable efforts to make sure it is no longer viewable on the App. For up to 60 days it is still possible to restore your Account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated. After 60 days, we begin the process of deleting your Account from our systems. We are not responsible for any information, pictures, comments, or other content that is deleted from our systems resulting from the deactivation of your Account.
To prevent abuse and/or misuse of Resonate by a User following termination or deletion of a profile/Account we shall retain such information as we deem in our sole discretion may be necessary to ensure that User does not open a new Account and profile in breach of our Terms and Conditions and to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations.
Warning: Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other Users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.
Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 60 days to enable restoration, but will not be available to others in the meantime.
6. OUR AGE POLICY.
Although we want as many people as possible to enjoy our creation, you have to be at least 18 years old to use the App.
Our policy is to not market to children, minors or anyone under the age of 18. If you are less than 18 years old, we request that you do not submit information to us. If we become aware that a child, minor or anyone under the age of 18 has registered with us and provided us with personal information, we will take steps to terminate that person’s registration and delete their Registration Information from Resonate. If we do delete a profile because you violated our no children rules, we may retain your email and IP address to ensure that you do not try to get around our rules by creating a new profile.
7. CHANGES TO THIS POLICY.
We pride ourselves on taking commercially reasonable security measures to help protect your information against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, or disclosure. We use reasonable security measures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information such as secured servers using firewalls.
Unfortunately, no website or Internet transmission is ever completely 100% secure and even we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or other breaches will never occur, but here are some handy tips to help keep your data secure:
Please make sure you log out of your Account after use as you never know who may gain access to your Account
Please don’t share your social media password with anyone else
Change your social media password periodically.
If you ever think someone has had access to your social media password, please report it to the relevant social media platform and change your password immediately. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal data while it is being transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk.
WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACHES OF SECURITY, DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE, OR ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR REGISTRATION INFORMATION OR OTHER DATA.
9. THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS.
If you have registered with Resonate using a third-party social media platform, such as Facebook, your Resonate profile will be available to all Users of Resonate whether via our App or our partners’ websites.
Remember that when you register with a third party, you are also giving them personal information, so we recommend that you read their privacy policies as Resonate does not control how they use their information.
If you have registered on one of these third-party websites, such as Facebook, or you have verified your Account via a third party website, we may connect your Resonate profile with your profile on such website. We may do this by way of new products and applications which we introduce from time to time, including new products powered by our group companies.
If you have created a Resonate profile through a third party website and you do not want to link your Resonate profile to your profile on the third-party website, Resonate cannot amend these settings. Please visit the application settings on your third party website profile and follow the instructions to remove the Resonate access permissions.
We only use the APIs, OAuth Tokens, Widgets, or other means provided by the applicable Social Media Account to integrate your Social Media Account with our App. As such, we only receive the limited information that each Social Media Account permits to be transferred.
