Using the Kullect Mobile Service
In order to use the mobile features of the Kullect Service, you must consent to: (a) the use of your phone’s location to provide Kullect to you, including the display and disclosure of that location information to your Kullect contacts and within your geo-tagged messages and content; (b) receive text messages; and (c) pay carrier data, messaging, and other fees resulting from Kullect usage. Data and messaging (including SMS text messages) plans are required to use the mobile features of the Kullect Service. Standard data and messaging charges, fees, and taxes from your carrier apply.
Information We Collect
User-Provided Information: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, mobile phone number and carrier, etc., if you register for a Member account with the Service. When using the Service, you may also provide certain other personal information and content, such as data contributions (images, videos, audio, location, place, text, choice, numbers, time, tags), which will be publicly displayed to other Users and on third-party sites and services in accordance with your privacy and opt-in settings. To provide the mobile features of the Service, we derive location information from your wireless carrier, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device that you used to register with Kullect. This location tracking of your mobile device occurs only when the Kullect mobile application is actively open and running.
Location Information: To provide Kullect, we collect, maintain, use, and display your personal data and the geographic location of your mobile device (we call this location fix of your mobile device “location information”).
Cookies Information: When you visit Kullect.com, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Kullect help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey anonymous information about how you browse the Service to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. Kullect uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you register with or view our site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
Clear Gifs Information: When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously. No personally identifiable information from your Kullect account is collected using these clear gifs. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make Kullect better for our users.
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service (including your location information and User Content) becomes available to the public. Kullect is not responsible for the personally identifiable profile information and data contributions (images, videos, audio, location, place, text, choice, numbers, time, tags) that you choose to disclose publicly on the Service. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.
By providing Kullect your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address or mobile phone number to send you other messages, such as newsletters, changes to features of the Service, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your settings page (click Settings on Profile page). Opting out may prevent you from receiving messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers. You may not opt out of Service-related e-mails. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages and our responses.
If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a contact to the Service, we will ask you for that person’s email address and automatically send an email invitation. Kullect stores this information to send this email, to register your contact if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our invitation service. Your contact may correspond with us to request that we remove this information from our database at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kullect may use certain information about you and/or your User Content without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.
How We Share Your Information
Kullect does not share your personally identifiable information or personally-identifiable location information with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your express consent or unless you have opted-in to be part of a specific program or feature. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with such a third party, you can choose not to participate in such programs or features. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Kullect services.
How We Protect Your Information
Kullect uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Kullect and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Kullect makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Kullect, at all times.
Compromise of Personal Information
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Service, in which case Kullect may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time by logging in to your account. You can review and correct the information about you that Kullect keeps on file by contacting us directly at email@example.com.
In Kullect, you contribute data (images, videos, audio, location, place, text, choice, numbers, time, tags) to “kullections”, back (support) a kullection, subscribe to a kullection, or create a kullection. Each of these activities is associated with your user account and thus other personal information provided (such as the name provided in your profile). You can choose to contribute “anonymously” to a “kullection” so that your user account and profile information will not be publicly associated with the contribution.
Certain information is public for everyone to view:
Kullections that you have backed.
Kullections that you have organized.
The users with whom you are contacts.
Contributions that you have submitted non-anonymously to a specific kullection, viewed within the context of the kullection’s overall contribution history.
Certain information is available for only your contacts to view:
A history of contributions you have submitted non-anonymously.
A history of the kullections to which you have contributed non-anonymously.
Certain information is available for only you to view:
A history of all contributions that you have submitted.
A history of all kullections to which you have contributed.
Contributions that you have starred (bookmarked) for later review.
Kullections to which you have subscribed.
Please be aware of your actions on Kullect and use the privacy options (submitting contributions anonymously and selectively choosing/accepting contacts) to protect yourself.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Kullect does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as Members. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Kullect. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
