Privacy Policy

We are passionate about privacy and take it very seriously

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY PRIOR TO ANY USE OF OR ACCESS TO ANY APPLICATION, THE CLIPO SERVICES OR ANY SITES (EACH AS DEFINED BELOW).

Acceptance of Privacy Policy

Clipo, Inc. (“Clipo”) provides the Polygram Application (“Polygram”), and the related services (the “Services”) to you subject to and conditioned upon your acceptance to the following terms and conditions (the “Privacy Policy”), which may be updated by Clipo from time to time, with or without advance notice to you.

By accessing and using Polygram and the Services you accept and agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy. In addition, when using Polygram and the Services, you and Clipo shall be subject to any additional applicable posted policies, terms, guidelines and rules, including without limitation, the Terms of Service found at http://www.polygr.am/terms, which may be modified from time to time, with or without advance notice to you.

As used herein, the “Polygram Application” means the software application released by Clipo under the name “Polygram” and on any platform, including without limitation, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile; “you”, “yours” and “User” means the user of Polygram and/or Services; “we”, “us”, “Polygram” and “our” means Clipo. These TOS are immediately effective upon your access to or use of Polygram and the Services. If you do not agree to these TOS, you are required to immediately stop all use of and access to Polygram.

Information We Collect

What You Directly Provide Us

For you to create a basic Polygram account, we need to collect some information about you: a unique username that you choose, a password, an email address we can contact you at, and a phone number. We let you update or correct some of the basic Polygram account information by editing your account settings within Polygram.

What You Automatically Provide Us When You Use Our Services

We automatically collect some information when you access our Services, which we use to facilitate the broad range of communications offered through our Services, to provide you cool features and functionality, and to enable all the other purposes described in this privacy policy. We explain all this below:

Information We Collect From Other Sources

If another user allows us to collect information from his or her device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with the information we collect through Polygram.

Information We Collect When You Contact Us

When you contact the Support team or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer. For instance, if you submit artwork, files, or any other materials to us through our websites, we will collect what you give us.

How We Use Information

We use the information you provide as noted below:

Where Information Is Processed

Polygram is based in the United States. No matter where you live or where you happen to use our Services, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries. We want you to know this because the laws of the United States and those of other countries where your information is processed might not be as comprehensive or protective as laws in the country where you live. And while you’re in another country, know that your information may be made available to government or law enforcement requests.

How We Share Information

Here’s the type of information we may share about you with others and how we do so:

The Services may also contain third-party links or be a co-branded or third-party-branded Service that’s being provided jointly with or by another company. By going to those links or by using a co-branded or third-party-branded Service, you may be providing personal information directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our Services.

Message Deletion

Most messages sent through our Services will be automatically deleted once they have been viewed or have expired. You should know that even though our technology prevents receipts of content to fully capture the content with a screen shot, it is possible that the process of wiping the screen of the device to reveal the content is recoded by another camera. When the recipient attempts to capture the screen, even though, he/she will not be able to capture the entire screen, we’ll try to both notify you about the attempted screenshot and send a copy of the partial image that has been captured by the recipient.

Each recipient has a period of 24 hours from the time a message is delivered to view the message. If the message is not viewed, the recipient will no longer be able to view the message. However, the message will stay on our server for an additional 24 hours during which time you can resend the message to the recipient if you decide to do so. After a total of 48 hours the message will be deleted from our server regardless of whether the message has been viewed or not by the recipient.

We can’t guarantee that messages will be deleted within a specific timeframe. And even after we’ve deleted message data from our servers, that same data may remain in backup for a limited period of time. We also sometimes receive requests from law enforcement requiring us by law to suspend our ordinary server-deletion practices for specific information. Finally, of course, as with any digital information, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients’ devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted.

Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies on Polygram. These companies may collect information about how you use the Services and other websites and online services over time and across different services. The information collected may include unique device identifiers, device manufacturer and operating system, IP address, browser type, pages viewed, session start/stop time, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity. Among the third parties we use for analytics is Flurry, which provides mobile analytics in connection with our app. For more information about Flurry’s privacy practices, or to opt out of Flurry Analytics tracking through our app, please visit www.flurry.com/user-opt-out.html.

Additionally, some companies may use the information they collect on our blog and other websites to deliver targeted advertisements on behalf of us or other companies, including on third-party websites and apps. Polygram does not currently respond to do-not-track signals that may be sent from your device. If we do so in the future, we will provide information about that practice in an updated version of this privacy policy.

Children

Our services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under 13. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13.
