This Policy outlines the personal information we collect, how it is used, and the choices you have with regard to your personal information. This Policy applies to the personal information we collect through our websites, mobile applications, and any other website or mobile application owned by us (collectively “Services”) that posts a link to this Policy.

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your personal information. Use of our Services indicates your consent to these practices described in this Policy. If you do not agree with the practices described in this Policy, you should not use any of our Services. This Policy may change from time to time (see “Changes to Our Privacy Policy”) and your continued use of our Services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes.

Our services, content and data are targeted for adults and business entities. Our Sites are therefore not meant for persons who may be defined as minors under applicable law. If you are a minor, please discontinue the use of our Site and all Site Services immediately.

Information We May Collect

Information You Provide to Us

The information we collect on or through our Services may include:

  • Information that you provide by using our Services, or creating a profile. This includes personal information, account information, and contact information.
  • Records and copies of your correspondence;
  • Your responses to surveys;
  • Your search queries on our Services.

This information is not currently used by Flip. However, it will be used in the future to provide a personalized experience (by recommending people and topics to follow on your feed) and to refine the user experience of our applications (by assessing analytic data to determine areas of the site or application that are not performing as required and using the information to adjust the design as indicated). To the extent (if any) that you choose to provide information in connection with our social media platforms outside of our Services (for example, through our Facebook page or Twitter feed), any information you provide in those settings is posted and transmitted at your own risk and subject to the terms of those social media platforms’ privacy policies.

Information We Collect Automatically

As you navigate through and interact with our Services, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Details of your visits to our Services, including pages you visit, the length of your visit, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use in our Services.
  • Information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, browsing history, browser type, device unique identifier, mobile network information, and device’s telephone number. Currently, our web servers do not recognize or respond to “Do Not Track” signals and our Services may continue to collect information in the manner described in this Policy.
  • Information about your location, if your device is set to provide location information.

Although much of the information that we collect automatically is statistical data or other aggregated information, it may include personal information, or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from or through third parties.

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns;
  • Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Services according to your individual interests;
  • Speed up your searches;
  • Provide services to you;
  • Recognize you when you return to our Services.

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:

Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Services.
  • Web Beacons. Pages of our Services may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company to count users who have visited those pages, and allow the Company to see other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
