Privacy Policy

        Your privacy and security is very important to us at Salta Friends AB, the owner and operator of                            www.saltafriends.com and the Salta Friends mobile App (“Salta Friends”, “we”, or “us”).  Salta Friends does          not sell, rent or lease your personal information to third parties.  If we share information about our users for          any of the purposes included in this Privacy Policy it is in an aggregated or anonymized form which cannot            reasonably be used to identify you unless you agree otherwise. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect,          use, share and protect information about the users of our mobile App and our Websites (collectively                      referred to as “user” or “you”). Salta Friends collects information about you when you use our mobile                      application ("App") or the Websites ("Website" or "Site") that allow you to access our services, and other              online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) and through other interactions and                                  communications you have with us. The term Services includes, collectively, various applications, websites,            widgets, email notifications and other mediums, or portions of such mediums, through which you have                  accessed this Privacy Policy. By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the collection, transfer,                manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of Your Information (collectively, "Use of Your Information")          as described in this Privacy Policy. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Your Information" means                            information about you, which may be of a confidential or sensitive nature and may include personally                    identifiable information ("PII") and/or financial information. PII means individually identifiable information                that would allow us to determine the actual identity of a specific living person, while sensitive data may                  include information, comments, content and other information that you voluntarily provide.

If we link such information with personally             identifiable information in a manner that identifies a particular individual, then we will treat all such                         information as personally identifiable information for purposes of this Privacy Policy.

This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search                   results page, a site in the Google Display Network, or somewhere on Facebook. Third-party vendors,                   including Google and Facebook, use cookies to serve ads based on your past visits to our Website. Any               data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy, as well as Google & Facebook                     privacy policies.

For example, if you choose to link, create, or log in to your Salta Friends account with a social         media service, e.g. Facebook, or a payment provider, e.g. Apple Pay or Google Wallet, or if you engage with         a separate App or Website that uses our API, or whose API we use, we may receive information about you           or your connections from that Site or App.

 

     6. Information Third Parties Provide

 

       We may collect information about you from sources other than you, such as from social media websites (i.e.,         Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or others), blogs, other users and our business partners.

       We do not collect or store payment information, including credit/debit card details or billing information.                 However, we may facilitate the transfer of your payment information to third party payment processor                     gateways. All payments are handled by the third party secure payment provider gateway.             

 

      How We Protect Your Information

 

     11. Protective Measures

 

       We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Data is treated securely and in               accordance with this Privacy Policy. All Personal Data provided to us is stored on secure servers using                 commercially reasonable technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse,         unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Unfortunately, the transmission of any information via the             internet, e-mail and other mobile networks is not entirely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your         Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of the Personal Data transmitted to the Website. Any                 transmission is at your own risk. However, once we have received your Personal Data, we will use strict                 procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

 

     12. Children's Privacy

 

       The Site and Services are intended for users who are at least 18 years of age. Furthermore, we do not                 knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13,               please do not provide us with information of any kind whatsoever. We encourage parents and guardians to           spend time with their children online and to be familiar with the websites they visit and the Apps they use. If           you have reason to believe that we may have accidentally received information from a child under the age of         13, please contact us immediately at info@saltafriends.com. If we become aware that we have inadvertently         received Personal Information from a person under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our           records.

 

     How We Use Information

           

     13. Generally

 

        We do not sell your personally identifiable information (Your Information) to third parties. Our primary                    purpose in collecting Your Information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized                    experience. Additionally, we use non-personally identifiable information that we aggregate to better design            our website and to share with advertisers. Any data that we may sell is in an aggregated and/or                            anonymized form which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

        This information is used to provide friend-matching services and can be deleted at any time when you                  choose to deactivate your account. In the event of longer inactivity, we will erase data on a regular periodic            basis. Some data may be necessary to keep for longer periods of time to fulfill contracts and/or legal                    requirements but whenever possible, will be anonymized.

 

     14. Services

 

         We will use this information in order to:

     a. Provide users with our Services and customer support including, but not limited to, confirming emails                     related to our services, reminders, confirmations, requests for information and transactions.

     d. We may transfer the information described in this Privacy Policy to, and process and store it in, the United             States and other countries, some of which may have less protective data protection laws than the region in           which you reside. Where this is the case, we will, to the best of our abilities, take measures to protect your           personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, however we will not be responsible for the                   differing data protection laws and its effect on our users.

 

     15. Sharing Of Information

 

     a. We may share the information we collect about you as described in this Privacy Policy or as described at             the time of collection or sharing, including as follows:

  • with third party Service Providers to enable them to provide the Services you request;

  • with the general public if you submit content in a public forum, your reviews, comments or other features of          our Services that are viewable by the general public; and

  • with third parties with whom you choose to let us share information, for example other Apps or Websites that integrate with our API or Services, or those with an API or service with which we integrate.

These companies are authorized to use Your Information only as necessary to provide these services to us and are contractually obligated to keep Your Information confidential;

When we disclose Your Information to these third parties, Your Information will become subject to the information use and sharing practices of the third party, and the third party will not be restricted by this Privacy Policy with respect to its use and further sharing of Your Information;

  • As required by law or ordered by a court, regulatory, or administrative agency;

     a. Salta Friends is committed to cooperating with law enforcement while respecting each individual’s right to             privacy. If Salta Friends receives a request for user account information from a government agency                        investigating criminal activity, we will review the request to be certain that it satisfies all legal requirements             before releasing information to the requesting agency.

 

      b. Furthermore, under 18 U.S.C. §§ 2702(b)(8) and 2702(c)(4) (Voluntary Disclosure Of Customer                            Communications or Records), Salta Friends may disclose user account information to law enforcement,                without a subpoena, court order, or search warrant, in response to a valid emergency when we believe                  that doing so is necessary to prevent death or serious physical harm to someone. Salta Friends will not                release more information than it prudently believes is necessary to prevent harm in an emergency                        situation.

 

     17. Other Sharing

 

           We may share your information as follows:

      f. In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, consolidation or                         restructuring, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by or into another company;

      g. If we otherwise notify you and you consent to the sharing;

      h. In an aggregated and/or anonymized form which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

 

     18. Social Sharing Features

 

     a. Our Services may now or in the future integrate with social sharing features and other related tools which             let you share actions you take on our Services with other Apps, sites, or media, and vice versa. Your use of           such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings             you establish with the social sharing service. Please refer to the privacy policies of those social sharing                 services for more information about how they handle the data you provide to or share through them.

      b. Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting publicly to our Services or the social                  sharing service becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you              set within the social sharing service. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User                    Content may be re-shared by others. If you remove information that you posted to our Services or the                    social sharing service, copies may still remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users or            third parties, using our Services or the social sharing service, have re-shared, copied or saved that User              Content.

 

     19. Analytics and Advertising Services Provided By Others

 

           We may allow others to provide audience measurement and analytics services for us, to serve                               advertisements on our behalf across the Internet, and to track and report on the performance of those                   advertisements. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, software development kits (SDKs), and                 other technologies to identify your device when you visit our Site and use our Services, as well as when               you visit other online sites and services.

 

     20. Links to Third Party Websites

 

     a. Our Services, as well as the email messages sent with respect to our Services, may contain links or                     access to websites operated by third parties that are beyond our control. Links or access to third parties               from our Services are not an endorsement by us of such third parties, or their websites, applications,                     products, services, or practices. We are not responsible for the privacy policy, terms and conditions,                       practices or the content of such third parties. These third parties may send their own cookies to you and               independently collect data.

     b. If you visit or access a third-party website, application or other property that is linked or accessed from our           Services, we encourage you to read any privacy policies and terms and conditions of that third party                     before providing any personally identifiable information. If you have a question about the terms and                       conditions, privacy policy, practices or contents of a third party, please contact the third party directly.

 

     21. Do Not Track

 

         Some web browsers may give you the ability to enable a "do not track" feature that sends signals to the                 websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than                     blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a "do not track" feature enabled may still accept cookies.                 There is currently no industry standard for how companies should respond to "do not track" signals,                       although one may develop in the future. We do not respond to "do not track" signals at this time; if we do               so in the future, we will describe how in this Privacy Policy.

 

     22. International Privacy Practices

 

         In order to provide our products and services to you, we may send and store your personal information                 outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to the United States. Accordingly, if you               reside or are located outside of the United States, your personal information may be transferred outside of           the country where you reside or are located, including countries that may not, or do not, provide the same             level of protection for your personal information. We are committed to protecting the privacy and                             confidentiality of personal information when it is transferred. If you reside or are located within the                         European Economic Area and such transfers occur, we take appropriate steps to provide the same level of           protection for the processing carried out in any such countries as you would have within the European                   Economic Area to the extent feasible under applicable law. By using and accessing our products and                     services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to               the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where they           reside, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their               residence or location.

 

     23. Account Information

 

         You may correct your account information at any time by logging into your online account and selecting the           deletion option. Please note that in some cases we may retain certain information about you as required by           law, or for legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law. For instance, if you have a standing           credit or debit on your account, or if we believe you have committed fraud or violated our Terms of Service,           we may seek to resolve the issue before deleting your information.

 

     Your Preferences

 

     24. Access Rights

 

         Salta Friends will comply with individuals’ requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the                 personal data it stores in accordance with applicable law. To make changes to your account affecting your             personal information, please login to your online account and select app settings / profile settings. At any             time, upon request, Salta Friends will provide you with access to your data and how it is being used, and               can deliver your data to you or a requested third-party. If you wish to exercise this right please contact                   info@saltafriends.com.

 

     25. Promotional Information Opt Out

 

         You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us by following the instructions in those                           messages. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications regarding your account,             about Services you have requested, or about our ongoing business relations.

 

     26. Changes to the Privacy Policy

 

         We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will                 inform you by posting the revised Privacy Policy on the Site. Those changes will go into effect on the "Last           updated" date shown below. By continuing to use the Site or Services, you consent to the revised Privacy             Policy.
