How We Use Your Data
We use your data to provide Services for your use.
Our Services help you connect the friends in your network. We use your data to authorize access to our Services.
Your Privacy Matters
Connector Street’s mission is to create a closer, more interconnected world. Central to this mission is our commitment to be open and clear about the data we collect about you, how it is used and with whom it is shared.
Data Controllers and Contracting Parties
If you reside in the “Designated Countries”: Connector Street Inc. will be the controller of your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with our Services.
Data We Collect
Data You Provide To Us
You provide data to create an account with us.
To create an account you need to provide data including your name, email address and mobile number, and a password. If you register for a premium Service that may be introduced sometime in the future, you will need to provide payment (e.g., credit card) and billing information.
You create your Connector Street profile (a complete profile helps you get the most from our Services). You give other data to us, such as by syncing your address book, and photos. Nothing that you add to your profile will be made available to the public; your profile information will only be made available to people whom you introduce, or members who introduce you to people in their network and, as to those individuals, they must already have your mobile phone number in order to make an introduction.
We collect personal data from you when you provide and upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out your profile. We receive data about you when someone in your network uses the Connector Street platform to introduce you to someone else. We also receive information about you in the messages that are communicated through the Connector Street messaging function. When you sync your contacts with our Services, sometime in the future, we may use your address book information to enable us to suggest connections for you to make.
We log your visits and use of our Services. We log usage data when you visit or otherwise use our Services, including our sites, app and platform technology.
Your Device and Location
We receive data from your devices and networks, including location data. When you visit or leave our Services we may receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next. We may also get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier. If you use our Services from a mobile device, that device may send us data about your location based on your phone settings. We will ask you to opt-in before we use GPS or other tools to identify your precise location.
If you communicate through our Services, we learn about that.
We collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you receive an introduction through the Connector Street platform, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders. We also use automatic scanning technology on messages.
Our Services allow you to connect the friends in your network.
Sometime in the future, we many enable you to opt-in to allow us to use your precise location or proximity to others for certain tasks (e.g. to suggest other nearby members for you to connect.) It is your choice whether to invite someone to our Services, make an introduction or act on an introduction made by a member. When you make an introduction, your introduction will include your name, photo, and contact information. We may send reminders to the people that you want to connect.
We enable introductions between members and others.
We will contact you through email, mobile phone, and messages that are generated by the Connector Street platform, including text messages and push notifications. We will send you messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use the Services, network updates, reminders, and promotional messages from us. We also enable communications between you and others through our Services, including for example, invitations.
We promote our Services to you and others.
We use data, including public feedback, to conduct research and development to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive and personalized experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Services, and help you better connect to your friends and colleagues.
Polls and surveys are conducted by us and others through our Services. You are not obligated to respond to polls or surveys, and you have choices about the information you provide. You may opt-out of survey invitations.
We use data to help you and fix problems. We use the data (which can include your communications) to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Service issues (e.g., bugs).
We use data to generate aggregate insights. We use your data to produce and share aggregated insights that do not identify you. For example, we may use your data to generate statistics about our members.
Security and Investigations
How We Share Information
We enable archiving of messages by members who send messages with the Connector Street platform.
Others may help us to deliver Services, including: maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development. They will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
We may need to share your data when we believe it’s required by law or to help protect the rights and safety of you, us or others.
It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you, (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (4) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of Connector Street, our members, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify members about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
