Since we are a fairly small company, we don’t meet the thresholds to require a lot of fancy language about privacy (some new state privacy laws do not apply to us). 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.
What Information We Collect
You are able to contact us through webforms on our Site and in the App, where we typically only ask for your name and email address. Please don’t provide any additional personal information in these forms, but if you do so, you are voluntarily providing it and you’re giving us the right to use it.
In order to use the App or our Services, we may ask you to provide personal 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.

We may use Tracking Technologies and other automatically collected information for a variety of purposes, including:
Information We Collect When You Interact With Third Party Services and Apps
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:
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, and of course, your social media handle or other personal information might be used by us in the App or on our social media if you have tagged us in a post or have DM’d us information about a location you have visited
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 also need to share your information in the following instances:
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 email@example.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).
If you want to know more about cookies, head to allaboutcookies.org, which includes information on controlling and deleting cookies, including on a wide variety of browsers. (Please note that these links are not operated by us and may open a new window or browser tab.) Users can change the settings on their cookies (enable or disable) or delete them, and you can opt in or out of cookies at any time except for strictly necessary cookies (these are used to help make our Site and App work efficiently, and you may not be able to use our Services without them). Note that certain other services may not function or may have more limited functionality if your web browser does not accept cookies, but you can allow cookies from specific websites by making them “trusted websites” in your web browser.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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) or the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) at this time.
We hope you enjoy your visit to Camber. You’ve got things to do and places to be!
