Parry App Privacy Policy

Parry App Privacy Policy

Effective date: February 28, 2022

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) explains how Parry App, LLC (“us,” “our,” or “we”) collects, uses, and discloses personal information about you that we collect through our app known as Parry (the “App”). 

We are committed to observing with privacy laws applying both to you and to our business and which set out standards for the processing of personal data. Privacy laws applying to you may give you the right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal information. This Policy is to give you that information. Such privacy laws may give you important privacy rights in respect of your personal information which are in addition to your rights referred to in this Policy. Links to the websites of several countries’ privacy regulators are at the privacy contact details below – your country’s regulator may be able to give you additional information.

Information We May Collect About You

When you use or access the App, we may collect the following personal information:

  • Contact information, such as your name, email address, date of birth, and phone number.

  • Friend contact information, if applicable, such as name, phone number, or any contact information for your identified friends or contacts when using the call + location feature to text your location to those identified contacts.

  • Any other information you submit when you contact us through the App or engage directly with the App (for example your last recorded location of using the App).

We also may collect the following other information automatically when you use the App:

  • Device Information: Certain information may be automatically collected by most browsers or devices, such as information about user devices (such as IP addresses and MAC addresses), operating systems, and browsers. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications, and other services.

  • Your location. If you activate the call + location feature within Parry, the app will collect your current location upon activating that feature. This is the only time that Parry will actively retrieve your exact location (when the call + location feature is enabled). It is up to the user if they wish to share their location once, only while using the app or always.

  • Information Stored in Cookies: The App may also use available web-based technologies to collect consumer data, such as cookies or web beacons. Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on users’ computers or devices. Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the online services, pages visited, referring URL, and other traffic and usage data. We may also use cookies for purposes such as determining what features interest our users, revising our website features or operations, and as further described below in the “Your Choices” section.

  • Pixel Tags and Log Files: The App may also use other tracking systems such as log files and pixel tags. For example, pixel tags, sometimes called web beacons, are similar in function to a cookie and can tell us certain information like what content has been viewed.

  • Information Collected in Connection with Analytics Technology: We may use various technologies to learn more about how visitors use the App, such as Firebase analytics and Amplitude. These technologies may use cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the App. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the App may include your IP address. If you so choose, you may be able to turn off cookies in the preferences settings in your browser. We may also use other technologies to monitor your activities on our App.

We may collect your personal information other than from you directly. These sources are generally those in respect of whom we have a reasonable expectation of their lawful ability to provide us with the relevant personal information. Examples are those who support our data analytics activities and who may have a contract with you, and those who support our business operations. Examples of third party sources with whom we may have relationships from time to time are:

  • entities involved in delivering the App to you or otherwise making it available for your use (for example Apple, Google or any other operator of the relevant application store or device operating system on which the App is downloaded and operated by you); and

  • entities involved in marketing and advertising technology.

If you are a nominated contact of one of our registered users, we may receive your personal information (namely name and telephone number) from the user to allow the App to contact you on behalf of the relevant user. 

How We May Collect and Hold Your Information

Collection of personal information: When we collect personal information about you, we do so by making a record of it. We do this when:

  • you communicate with us;

  • you subscribe to our information services;

  • you express an interest in taking part in our events or initiatives;

  • you take part in any trade promotions, testimonials, surveys, focus groups and research we are involved in; or

We may also collect personal data by accessing personal or other data from the other sources referred to at “Information We May Collect About You” above then analyzing that data together with the information we already hold about you for the purposes outlined in this Policy.

Holding of personal information: Personal information we hold is generally stored in computer systems or in the Amplitude analytics tool. These may be operated by us or by our service providers. We will hold your personal information on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the App or any other goods or services you have requested or as we consider reasonably appropriate having regard to the purpose of our processing.

In respect of your personal information of which we are the controller, we hold this on our servers or those of our third party processing service providers (for example in our Amplitude analytics tool). Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping this confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. The transmission of information, electronically, is not secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to or from any of our sites. Please bear this in mind when deciding whether or not to allow your personal information to be processed by us.

We may allow your personal information to be shared with those who are in countries other than your own location. We do this: 

  • where we have made a business decision to store our data with a trusted service provider who is in the business of providing data storage and processing services. Examples are those who store and process our email and mobile application data. These services commonly involve diverse geographic locations which change from time to time for reasons which include data protection and processing efficiency. Where these services are used by us, it is not practical for us to notify you of which country your personal data may be located in (however it is initially anticipated to include the United States of America, India and elsewhere);

  • for disclosures between our group companies or consultants and service providers. Our main business location is in the United States of America but we do business in a number of countries and some of our group companies or service providers may be based in other countries from time to time; and

  • when our business which collected your personal data is in a different country to your location.

Your Choices

You may choose not to provide the personal information we request. You may also have the option of not identifying yourself or of using a pseudonym when dealing with us, except where this is impractical, you have consented or agreed or where the law or a court order provides otherwise. However, not providing information we request may restrict your ability to use certain features of the App or prevent you from using the App altogether. For example, you may be able to restrict the collection of personal information or functionality through your device’s operating system or by disabling cookies but doing so may prevent you from using the functionality of the App. Some Internet browsers have a “do-not-track” feature that let you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Currently, the App does not respond to “do-not-track” signals. We may allow third parties to use the App to collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites, applications, and other online products or services. For information about interest-based advertising, and to opt out of this type of advertising by third parties that participate in self-regulatory programs, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. Please note that any opt-out choice you exercise through these programs will apply to interest-based advertising by the third parties you select but will still allow the collection of data for other purposes, including research, analytics, and internal operations. You may continue to receive advertising, but that advertising may be less relevant to your interests.
