How We Use and Share the Information

We use the Personal Information and the Other Information to provide and improve the Website and the App; solicit your feedback; inform you about our products and Apps and those of our third-party marketing partners (without using Browsing Data, as described above).

- In order to provide the App, we may share your Personal Information, Geolocational Information, and Other Information with the applicable Venue. We do not, and will not, knowingly provide Browsing Data to the Venue or any such Venue's internet service provider, although Venues and such Venue's internet service provider may independently gain access to such Browsing Data. As mentioned above, we will use our good-faith, reasonable efforts to contractually prohibit the Venues from accessing, using, or sharing your Browsing Data, but in no instances shall we be responsible for any Venue's or any Venue's internet service provider's use of Browsing Data.

- In an ongoing effort to better understand our users and our Website and App, we might analyze the Other Information and the Geolocational Information in aggregate form in order to operate, maintain, manage, and improve the Apps and/or the Website. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents, Venues and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our products, the Website, and Apps to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

- We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include providing network services, information technology support and customer services. These other companies will have access to the Personal Information, the Geolocational Information, and the Other Information only as necessary to perform their functions and to the extent permitted by law.

  • With your permission, third-party applications or Apps may access your Personal Information. We use standard OAuth (open authorization) to enable you to give permission to share your Personal Information with other websites and Apps, such as Facebook and LinkedIn (e.g., when you agree to a pop-up requesting you to allow another application to access your account information). We also use OAuth to allow us to share information about you that is stored by us without sharing your security credentials.
  • To the extent permitted by law, we may also disclose Personal Information, Geolocational Information, and Other Information when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, or whenever we believe that disclosing such information is necessary or advisable, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Fundz or others.

How We Protect Your Information

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information, the Geolocational Information, and the Other Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the databases of the third parties with which we may share such information, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
