Umapped Inc. (“Umapped” or “we”) recognizes the need to protect the privacy of the personal information you provide us with respect to your access and use of Umapped’s website (www.umapped.com) or through Umapped’s mobile and web applications (the website and such mobile and web applications being collectively referred to as the “Applications”).

Therefore, we have adopted this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which sets forth, among other things, the type of information that will be collected, the purpose and use of the collected information, and your rights with regard to the collected information. By accessing the Applications, you are consenting to the collection and the use of your information by Umapped, but only to the extent described herein.

We reserve the right at any time, at our sole discretion, to change or otherwise modify this Privacy Policy, and your continued access or use of these Applications signifies your acceptance of such updated or modified Privacy Policy. Please periodically revisit this website to review such updates. Please note that the last update was performed on May 24th, 2018. If the modified terms are not acceptable, please do not access or use the Applications.

  1. Protection of Your Information.

We are accountable for the information in our custody. Therefore, when we collect or use your information, we will utilize commercially reasonable safeguards to ensure its protection. It should be noted that no security procedure is currently 100% effective. Should any breach of your personal information occur, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible.

  1. Type and Purpose of Collection.

We collect information at various points in the Applications to facilitate its use by our customers. Specifically, two types of information are collected:

  • a. Non-Personal Information: Upon accessing the Applications, certain non-personal information will be automatically collected without your knowledge or consent, such as your IP address and the referring website (“Non-Personal Information”). We use Non-Personal Information to examine our traffic and to view how our customers use the Applications. This type of information will not allow you to be personally identified. For example, we use “cookies”, which contains only certain statistical information. You can instruct your computer to inform you whenever a cookie is being sent, or you can disallow cookies through your web browser. If you do choose to disallow cookies, your experience on the Applications may be diminished, or your ability to choose some of the options on the Applications may be limited.
  • We also automatically collect certain information when you use the Applications, such as your location/GPS coordinates (if you enable this feature), a device identifier (but not the UDID), MAC address, Internet Protocol (IP) address (if using a browser), operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring site and your activity on the Applications. You can enable or disable location services when you use the Applications at anytime, through your settings. This information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned below.
