By visiting this Site or using the PokerUP App, you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Policy, as such Policy may be amended from time to time. Each time you visit the Site or use the PokerUP App, you agree and expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide as described in this Policy.
To be clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Policy, we mean information about you that is personally identifiable, like your name, address, e-mail address, billing information, or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with this personal information. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information” in this Policy, we mean information that is not personally identifiable, or linked to your Personal Information such as aggregated information, general demographic information and IP addresses. Anonymous Information does not necessarily enable identification of individual persons.
- Collection and Use of Information
When you install the PokerUP App you will be asked to provide us with your phone number, name and a photo (name and photo are not mandatory) and to allow us access to your mobile device’s address book.
A copy of the phone numbers and names in your address book (but not emails, notes or any other Personal Information in your address book) will be stored on our servers and will only be used to:
(a) notify you when your contacts become active in the PokerUP App,
(b) indicate which of your contacts is already a PokerUP App user,
(c) correctly display the name of each contact as it appears in your address book when you use the PokerUP App.
(d) sync your contacts with the PokerUP App running on iOS and Android devices.
Your phone number will be used for identification purposes as your PokerUP App user ID.
Since PokerUP App users may add your phone number to their address book and see that you registered to PokerUP App, we do not consider the fact that your phone number exists in PokerUP App as private information.
The PokerUP App may interact with your phone’s SMS inbox for the sole purpose of service activation, placing incoming messages in your inbox, reading the contents of the activation SMS sent to you by PokerUP App. WE WILL NOT ACCESS THE CONTENTS OF ANY OTHER SMS.
Name and Photo
Should you provide your name and/or photo it will be visible to other PokerUP App users as long as:
Such users have your PokerUP App number.
Other users will see your connection status whether you are online or not.
We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personal Information of visitors or users. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a device user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.
- Sharing and Disclosure of Information
We do not rent, sell, or share any information about our users with any third-parties, except as specifically described herein. We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe such action is necessary to:
(a) comply with the law, or legal process served on us;
(b) protect and defend our rights or property (including the enforcement of our agreements); or
(c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our PokerUP App or members of the public.
In order to provide you with PokerUP App products you have requested, PokerUP App may sometimes, if necessary, share your Personal Information (excluding your address book and related information) and traffic data with trusted partner service providers and/or agents, for example: banking organizations or other providers of payment and analytical services, customer support, or hosting services. PokerUP App will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to observe the relevant legislation. PokerUP App will never share your address book information with any third party, except as may be required by law (see below).
The following is a description of how we may share your Personal Information with trusted third party partners. Should we add additional partners, we will immediately update this description:
- We use third party companies in order to send you an authentication SMS when you register with PokerUP App. In order to send you the SMS, we send one of these third party companies your phone number and the authentication message. These third parties are contractually obligated to only use your phone number for the transmission of the authentication SMS.
- We may use Push Notification PokerUP Apps to notify you about various events related to the app. If we do, the phone number or the name of the person calling you or sending you a message may be part of the notification. This message is sent to the push notification service provider, for delivery to your device.
- We use third parties to process the payment and/or billing information that you submit through the PokerUP App to facilitate payment transactions. We require that these third parties take the appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to comply with relevant laws, but we are not liable or responsible for these third party transactions. Therefore, you should review such third party terms and conditions before providing your payment or billing information.
We may disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance that disclosure of information is necessary.
We may contact you to send you messages about faults and service issues. Furthermore, we reserve the right to use email, the PokerUP App software or SMS to notify you of any eventual claims related to your use of our software, websites and/or products, including without limitation claims of violation of third party rights.
