Connector Street Privacy Policy  

Effective June 8, 2019
 

How We Use Your Data
We use your data to provide Services for your use.

Services

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.

This Privacy Policy applies when you use our Services (described below).

Introduction
Connector Street is a social media app that allows you to connect your friends and colleagues quickly, easily and securely through our proprietary platform. Our Privacy Policy applies to any member or visitor to our Services. Our registered users (“members”) share their identities with individuals in their networks. We use the term “Designated Countries” to refer to countries in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland.

Services
This Privacy Policy applies to your use of our Services. This Privacy Policy applies to Connector Street, ConnectorStreet.com, CStreet.app and other Connector Street-related sites, apps, communications and services (“Services”), including off-site Services which may be introduced from time to time, but excluding services that state that they are offered under a different privacy policy.

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.

If you reside outside of 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. You are entering into the User Agreement with Connector Street Inc. As a visitor or member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy and updates.

Change

Changes to the Privacy Policy apply to your use of our Services after the effective date.

Connector Street (“we” or “us”) can modify this Privacy Policy, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Services or by other means to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. You acknowledge that your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to this Privacy Policy means that the collection, use, and sharing of your personal data is subject to the updated Privacy Policy.

Data We Collect

Data You Provide To Us
You provide data to create an account with us.

Registration

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.

Service Use
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.

Messages
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.

Other
We always strive to improve our Services, which means we may get new data and create new ways to use data. Our Services are dynamic, and we may introduce new features, which may require the collection of new information. If we collect materially different personal data or materially change how we use your data, we will notify you and may also modify this Privacy Policy.

Stay Connected
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.

Communications
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.

Marketing
We promote our Services to you and others.

Service Development
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.

 

Surveys
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.

Customer Support
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).

Aggregate Insights
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
We use your data for security, fraud prevention and investigations. We use your data if we think it’s necessary for security purposes or to investigate possible fraud or other violations of our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy and/or attempts to harm our members or visitors.

How We Share Information

Communication Archival
We enable archiving of messages by members who send messages with the Connector Street platform.

Service Providers
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.

Legal Disclosures
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.

Change in Control or Sale
We may share your data in the event our business is sold to others, but it must continue to be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We can also share your personal data as part of a sale, merger or change in control, or in preparation for any of these events. Any other entity which buys us or part of our business will have the right to continue to use your data, but only in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy unless you agree otherwise.

Your Choices & Obligations

Other Important Information
