This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the information collected by Goodmeets, Inc. (“we,” “us,” or “our”), how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures. By using our website, located at http://joinwhim.com (“Website”), our mobile app Whim, and/or other services we provide (collectively, “Whim”), you are accepting the practices set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this policy, then you must not access or use Whim.

Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Information collected automatically: When you use Whim, we automatically collect and store certain information about your computer or mobile device and your activities. This information may include:
1. Mobile Device ID. Your mobile device's unique ID number (e.g., IMEI).
2. Geographic Location. Your computer's or mobile device's geographic location when you register for Whim and when you sign up for a date.
3. Device Information/Specifications. Technical information about your computer or mobile device (e.g., type of device, web browser or operating system, IP address) to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, render graphics, track visitor movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information.
4. Length and Extent of Usage. How long you used Whim and which services and features you used.
5. Cookies: We use “cookies” to keep track of some types of information while you are visiting Whim or using our services. “Cookies” are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to our site and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends. We rely on cookies for Whim's operation; therefore if your browser is set to reject all cookies, Whim may not function properly. Users who refuse cookies assume all responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality with respect to Whim.
6. Web Beacons: “Web beacons” (also known as “clear gifs” and “pixel tags”) are small transparent graphic images that are often used in conjunction with cookies in order to further personalize Whim for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our visitors. We may also use web beacons in email communications in order to understand the behavior of our customers, such as whether an email has been opened or acted upon.

Information you choose to provide:
Information We Obtain From Facebook/Instagram. When you create a profile on Whim, you will have an option to pre-populate your profile information by connecting with Facebook and/or Instagram.  This is optional, not required. In doing so, you are authorizing us to access certain Facebook/Instagram account information, including information about you and your Facebook friends. By allowing us to access your Facebook account, you understand that we may obtain certain information from your Facebook account, including your name, email address, birthday, work history, education history, current city, photos stored on Facebook, and the names, profile pictures, relationship status, and current cities of your Facebook friends. We only obtain information from your Facebook account that you specifically authorize and grant us permission to obtain.  By allowing us to access your Instagram account, you understand that we may obtain any of the photos from your Instagram account.  We will generally include the most recent photos in your profile.

Information You Provide Directly to Us. In addition, when you register with Whim, you must provide certain information, including your mobile phone number, zip code, and gender. You may provide additional information about yourself (such as your school, occupation, current city, etc.) in order to build your Whim profile. Any of the information you provide may be viewed at some point by other users of the Services.

Emails: We request an email address from you when you register with Whim. We use your email for both “administrative” (e.g., confirming your registration, notifying of matches) and “promotional” (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes. Email messages we send you may contain a code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and what links (if any) were clicked. You may opt-out of receiving promotional emails and other promotional communications from us at any time via the opt-out links provided in such communications, or by e-mailing support@joinwhim.com with your specific request. However, we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to Whim such as service announcements, security alerts, update notices, or other administrative messages without affording you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such communications.  

Text Messages:  As with your email address, we also may use your mobile phone number to send you texts for “administrative” (e.g., confirming your registration, notifying of matches) and “promotional” (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes.  We require a mobile telephone number in order to send you text messages when you have matches or a date.  By registering with Whim you hereby authorize us to send text messages to your mobile phone for any or all of the purposes set forth herein.

Push Notifications:  By registering with Whim and allowing push notifications, you hereby authorize us to send push notifications to your mobile phone to facilitate your engagement with the app.

Online Survey Data: We may periodically conduct voluntary user surveys. We encourage our users to participate in such surveys because they inform us with respect to what we can improve about our product and service.  We do not link the survey responses to your name or email address, and all responses are anonymous.

How we use the information: 
Pursuant to the terms of this Privacy Policy, we may use the information we collect from you for the following purposes:
1. facilitate matches with other Whim users;
2. respond to your comments and questions and provide customer service;
3. communicate with you about Whim and related offers, promotions, news, upcoming events, and other information we think will be of interest to you;
4. monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities;
5. investigate and prevent fraud and other illegal activities; and 6. provide, maintain, and improve Whim and our overall business.

Use for Research and Blog Posts:  In addition to the uses outlined above, by using Whim, you agree to allow us to anonymously use the information from you and your experiences to continue our research into successful relationships, including how to create and foster these relationships, so that we may continue to improve the Whim experience.  This research may be published in our blogs or interviews.  However, all of your responses will be kept anonymous, and no personal information will be published.

Sharing Your Information
Information Shared with Your Dates:  We will share your email address and mobile phone number with people we set you up on dates with, for coordination purposes.  When you tap or swipe "Yes" on a potential match, you are accepting the possibility that you will be set up on a date with that person and that we will expose your email address and mobile phone number to him or her.   The information we collect is used to improve the content and the quality of Whim, and without your consent we will not otherwise share your personal information with any other party(s) for commercial purposes, except when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

Service Providers. We may share your information with our third-party service providers that support various aspects of our business operations (e.g., analytics providers, security and technology providers, and payment processors).

We may disclose any information without notice or consent from you: (a) in response to a legal request, such as a subpoena, court order, or government demand; (b) to investigate or report illegal activity; or (c) to enforce our rights or defend claims. We may also transfer your information to another company in connection with a merger, corporate restructuring, sale of any or all of our assets, or in the event of bankruptcy.

Aggregate Data. We may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.

Referring Your Friends
We encourage you to refer your friends to Whim by sending them a pre-populated email or SMS about Whim.  When your friends sign up, you earn free date credits.  You agree that you will not abuse this feature by entering the email addresses or phone numbers of those individuals who would not be interested in Whim.

Updating or Removing Account Information
You may review or edit your profile as you wish, by logging into your Whim account using the information supplied during the registration process. If you would like to delete your account information, email us at support@joinwhim.com.

Third Party Sites
Whim may contain links to other websites. If you choose to click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Age restriction.
We do not target or allow persons under 18 years of age to use Whim, and we do not knowingly collect information from persons under the age of 13. If you are a parent or legal guardian who discovers that your child has provided us with information without your consent, you may contact us at support@joinwhim.com, and we will promptly delete such information from our files.

Securing Your Personal Information.
We endeavor to safeguard personal information to ensure that information is kept private. However, please be aware that unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, the inherent insecurity of the Internet and other factors, may compromise the security of your personal information at any time. As such, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

Using Whim from outside the United States.
Whim is intended only for users within the United States. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy is intended to cover the collection of information by our Website and mobile devices from residents of the United States. As a result, United States federal and state governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through laws applicable in the United States. If you are using Whim from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. By using Whim, you understand and agree that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.
