In general, your Facebook friends and app users can view any information you share on the app when they visit the app. This includes your name, home city, gifts you send and receive, and the users you interact with. We give you the ability to edit and/or delete this information at any time. We do not share your email address with other users.
We receive and store any information you enter on our App or provide to us in any other way, including information provided by third parties like Facebook when you link such accounts to Harpoon Connect. When you connect a third-party account, we receive and store information including your name, user name, email address, check-ins, and profile data. To help you give great, personalized gifts, we may also access data about your friends, including their ‘Likes’ or where they have checked in. The information you provide is used to help you utilize the Harpoon Connect App, interact with other users to send and receive personalized gifts, customize the content and advertising you see, and communicate with you about specials and new features. We also draw upon this information to better adapt our App to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community. When you purchase a paid gift or ticket, you will need to submit a credit card or other payment information (debit card, PayPal, etc.) so that our service providers can process your payment. All transactions are processed using industry-standard encryption and Harpoon Connect never directly accesses or stores sensitive payment information.
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only as described above and in this section.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We are affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses sell items to you through our App and our emails. In other situations, Harpoon Connect provides services or sells products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with a transaction, and it will be clear what Personal Information (if any) will be shared with that affiliated business should you choose to participate.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them. Unless we tell you differently, Harpoon Connect’s agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.
Promotional Offers: We may send offers to you on behalf of other businesses. However, when we do so, we do not give the other business your Personal Information. If you do not wish to receive these offers, you will have the option to unsubscribe using a link found at the bottom of the email. We may provide certain of your Personal Information to third parties if you affirmatively allow us to do so by opting in to an offer we make to you.
Other Users: When you give a gift to someone through Harpoon Connect, please be aware that we will disclose your real name and email address to the recipient.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Harpoon Connect, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Harpoon Connect goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Harpoon Connect may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of Harpoon Connect and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Harpoon Connect, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
