Camber Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 31, 2021

Introduction

Hi. We’re Camber – a place for places! We know that you have places to go so we’ll be brief. We respect your privacy and will only use your personal information in the ways we’ve described in this Privacy Policy. This Policy applies to the Camber app, its related websites, their subdomains, and all portals, products, goods, and any interactive features, or other services that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “App”). It also applies to information that we may collect from you in the App. We refer to all of the above as our “Services.”

Since we are just starting out (and you are part of our maiden voyage), we don’t meet the thresholds to require a lot of fancy language about privacy. But we do want to tell you what information we collect from you, why we collect it, how we use it, under what circumstances we may share it, how we protect it, and how you can modify the use of your information.

As a general rule, we treat your information like we would treat our own – we handle it with care. As used in this Policy, “Personal Information” is information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. At times, we may need to disclose your Personal Information to third parties outside the company who may be assisting us with providing Services to you, as we’ll explain below.  But we don’t sell your information, and we don’t have plans to sell it in the future. And if you have questions about this Privacy Policy, you can contact us at hello@camberapp.com.

We don’t ask for a lot of information up front, but please know that if you voluntarily provide information in the course of interacting with the App or otherwise using our Services (like when you post a photo or provide a review of a place), we will take that as your agreement to our collection, use, and disclosure of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is also part of our Terms of Service, which govern your use of the App and Services.

What Information We Collect

In order to use the App or our Services, we may ask you to provide information such as your name, your email address, your mobile number, a username, your birthday, your hometown, or information from your social media accounts (if you link them to your Camber account). You will also have the option to add your contacts to connect with friends or upload photos or information regarding places you have been or would like to visit. All of this information is voluntary – and you may still use the Camber App without providing this information, but your experience may be limited if you do not create a profile. 

In order to better provide our Services – since we are “a place about places” – we also may use your device location or other geolocation information (if enabled on your device) to determine from where you are accessing or have accessed our Services, or to allow you to tag your posts. All of this information helps us understand your preferences and how to improve our App to create the best user experience possible. 

In addition, like with other Apps and websites, certain information may be collected automatically when you use our App or our Services. For instance, we may collect or store certain usage information from your device when you visit or interact with the App, such as your IP address, IDFA, Android or Google Advertising ID, IMEI, or other unique identifier, or information about your device (including the browser you are using, the browser language, operating system, hardware and mobile network information). We may also use software development kits (“SDKs”) and other business intelligence tools, for example, Google Analytics, in the App to collect information about App usage and business information, like how many users are using the App and how the App is operating. Our analytics may also determine what referring and exiting webpages and URLs you may visit when you visit or leave our App, and the areas within the App that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences and other device data, like the time of day you visited our App or how long you browsed in the App. This information may be shared with Google or the other third party providing the analytics technology, though it is typically not tied to personal information such as your name or email address.  To learn more about how Google uses information from sites that use its services, click here.

We also may use Cookies and other Tracking Technologies that can set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your device. (Some of which you can control on your device.) A few of the Tracking Technologies used on the App include (but are not limited to) the following:

  •   Cookies. A cookie is a file placed on a Device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information on your Device. The App may use HTTP cookies, HTML5 cookies, and other types of cookie technology to store information on local storage. These often make it quicker and easier to login to the App.
  •   Web Beacons. A Web Beacon is a small tag (which may be invisible to you) that may be placed on the App’s pages and messages.
  •   Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the App, such as the links you click on.
  •   ETag, or entity tag. An Etag or entity tag is a feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL.
  •   Browser Fingerprinting. Collection and analysis of information from your Device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts and other data, for purposes of identification.
  •   Recognition Technologies. Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user).

We may use Tracking Technologies and other automatically collected information for a variety of purposes, including:

  •   To allow you to use and access the App and the Services, including for fraud prevention and to prevent unauthorized use of your account and for improved security;
  •   To assess the performance of the App, including as part of our analytics practices or to otherwise to improve the content, products or services offered through the App;
  •   To offer you enhanced functionality when accessing the App, including identifying you when you sign into the App or keeping track of your specified preferences or to track your online activities over time and across third-party sites; and
  •   To deliver content relevant to your interests on the App based on how you interact with our content.

Information We Collect When You Interact With Third Party Services and Apps

The App may allow certain kinds of interactions between the App and your account on a third-party website or application, such as a social media app. We also use Google Analytics to help us analyze how users interact with and use our App. The use of these functionalities may involve the third-party site providing information to us or receiving information from us. For example, we may provide links on the App to facilitate sending a communication from the App or sharing a post to social media. These third parties may retain information used or provided in any such communications or activities and these third parties’ practices are not subject to our Privacy Policy. We may not control or have access to your communications or posts through these third parties. In addition, when you use third-party sites or services, you are using their services and not our services and they, not we, are responsible for their practices. You should read the applicable third-party privacy policies before using such third-party tools on the App.

Why Do We Collect Information From You?

Typically, we collect information from you in order to provide you with a better user experience. We may use your information for variety of reasons, including:

  •   Responding to your requests for information;
  •   Providing our products or Services to you;
  •   Providing data on locations and places of interest to our users;
  •   Verifying your identity and for fraud prevention;
  •   Providing you with updates and information about products and services we provide;
  •   Improving the effectiveness of the App, our marketing endeavors, and our product and service offerings;
  •   Identifying your product and service preferences;
  •   Helping us address problems with and improve the App and our products and services, including testing and creating new products, features, and services;
  •   Protecting the security and integrity of the App, including understanding and resolving any technical and security issues reported on the App;
  •   Engaging in analysis, research, and reports regarding the use of the App and Services;
  •   For internal business purposes;
  •   Complying with the law and protecting the safety, rights, property or security of Camber, the Services, and the general public; and
  •   For other purposes disclosed at the time you provide your information or as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy.

When Do We Disclose Information About You?

We may need to share information about you with third parties who perform services or functions for us in conjunction with our Services (like our email or marketing vendors, or a third-party payment processor), but we will do so only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the services that they are providing to us. We may use or share certain information that you have given us (like your photos or social media handle) with our partners or other third parties that we work with for co-branded activities. We may also use your information to offer you promotions or the opportunity to enter our contests. 

Sometimes, we might aggregate, de-identify, and/or anonymize any information collected through the App or Services such that the information is no longer linked to you personally. In this instance, this non-personal, aggregated and anonymized information may be used or shared for any purpose, including without limitation, for research and marketing purposes, and we may also share such data with our affiliates and third parties.

Finally, we sometimes need to share your information in the following instances:

  •   To comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons;
  •   In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of our company, provided that we take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review;
  •   As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either initiated by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.

In addition, we may share the information we have collected about you if we specifically ask for your consent at the time you provide your information, like if you enter a sweepstakes or contest with us.

Your Choices About the Information We Collect

Any emails that we send to you will always contain a link to opt-out or unsubscribe from further emails. We prefer to keep your information accurate and up to date.  If you would like to change or delete your information, you may make changes in your account or write to us at hello@camberapp.com. We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our active databases as soon as reasonably possible (but we may need to retain prior information as business records or to comply with applicable laws and regulations).

Children’s Privacy

Our App is not intended for use by children under the age of 16. We do not request, or knowingly collect, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 who you believe has provided her or his information to us, please contact us at hello@camberapp.com to request the deletion of that information.

“Do Not Track” Disclosure

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but there is no universally agreed upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.

Links

For your convenience, the App and this Privacy Policy may contain links to other websites. None of the links on the App should be deemed to imply that Camber endorses or has any affiliation with the links. Camber is not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, services, or the content of such other websites. Please see our Terms of Service for more information.

Security

We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your personal information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the App, and you provide us with your information at your own risk.

California – Shine the Light Act – Third Party Marketing

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request information regarding the disclosure of their personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. At this time, Camber does not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Furthermore, we advise California residents that we do not meet the thresholds for application of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) at this time.

If you have questions or concerns with respect to our Privacy Policy, you may contact us at hello@camberapp.com. We may elect to change or amend our Privacy Policy; in such event, we will post the policy changes in our Privacy Policy or on the App, and they will become effective on the date posted.  

We hope you enjoy your visit to Camber. You’ve got things to do and places to be!
