Favly’s mission is to allow individuals to and “share trusted referrals” of professionals with business associates, family and friends, to allow such individuals to ask for a referral, give a referral, and say thank you for a referral.
Our paid subscribers (“Business Members”) share, can be seen and found at the Favly Website and on the Favly App, they are able complete a business profile, post a picture, contact information, a description of their services, a link to their website, participate in the Favly score, participate in the “Associates Program” where businesses can mutually “fave” you, have the ability to post and sell gift cards through the Favly App to consumers, be found in the community, and participate in the future in a Favly Newsfeed if and when established, that will allow Business Members to post updates about their business, photos, videos, deals, and announcements for which only consumers who Fave the business will see such posts. Users who have downloaded the Favly App will have the ability to make referrals to family, friends, and business associates, the ability to receive referrals, and the ability to thank an individual or business for a referral, but will not have the benefits set forth above that are for paid Business Members who pay their monthly fee.
It is Favly’s top priority to maintain your trust, and accordingly Favly adheres to the following to protect your privacy:
a. Favly goes to great lengths to protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Favly, our Business Members, users and visitors, and the public.
b. Favly has implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.
Favly collects personal and business information of its paid Business Members, subscribers, users, and visitors in the following ways:
d. It is important that you know that when you send a referral to another individual on our service, or an invitation to join Favly and download the Favly App., and that person may have access to your email address or, for SMS invitations, mobile number because it may be displayed in the invitation and referral.
f. We collect information when you visit the Favly website or use the Favly APP, use our mobile applications, and interact with advertisers using the Favly website or App to advertise their goods and services. Favly collects information when you use (whether as a paid subscriber or a user) our websites, applications, our platform technology or other Services. For example, we collect information when you view or click on ads on and off our Services, perform a search, import your address book, make referrals of businesses or individuals, notify an individual or business that you have made a referral to a individual or business, purchase a product or service as a thank you for a referral received using the Favly App or Website, share articles on our Services and apply to jobs through our Services. If you are logged in at www.favly.com, the Favly App or another Service or one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage information and the log data, such as your IP address, will be associated by us with your account. Even if you’re not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP address.
g. Favly collects information when you use your Favly account to sign in to other sites or services, and when you view web pages that include our plugins and cookies. You allow us to receive information when you use your account to log in to a third-party website or application. Also, when you visit a third-party site that embeds our social plugins (such as “Share on Favly” for publishers) we receive information that those pages have loaded in your web browser. If you are logged in as a paid subscriber or member when you visit sites with our plugins, we use this information to recommend tailored content to you, refer businesses to you, and receive referrals. We will use this information to personalize the functionality we provide on third-party sites, including providing you insights from your professional network and allowing you to share information with your network. We may provide reports containing aggregated impression information to companies hosting our plugins and similar technologies to help them measure traffic to their websites, but no personal data. You also allow us to receive information about your visits and interaction with the sites and services of our partners that include our cookies and similar technologies, unless you opt out. If you are not a Member, we rely on the online terms between you and our partners.
i. Favly uses advertising technologies and web beacons to collect information about you. We give you a number of ways to opt out of targeted ads, including through the various icons shown with any ads we serve on third-party sites. If you do not want us to track your behavior on third-party sites, you can opt out. IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT, YOU CONSENT TO OUR USE OF BEACONS AND OTHER ADVERTISING TECHNOLOGIES. We target (and measure the performance of) ads to our paid Business Members and users, and others both on and off of our Services through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, including using the following, whether separately or combined:
(1) Advertising technologies on and off of our Services, like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms;
(2) Member-provided profile and contact information and categories (for example, “product managers in Texas”);
(3) Information inferred from a Buisness Member‘s profile (for example, using job titles to infer age, industry, seniority, and compensation bracket; or names to infer gender);
(4) Information from 3rd parties (e.g. advertising partners, publishers and data aggregators) which we use in addition to the information from our cookies (and similar technologies), your profile and use of our Services.
j. Favly collects information from the devices and networks that you use to access our Services. When you visit or leave our Services (whether as a paid subscriber or user) by clicking a hyperlink or when you view a third-party site that includes our plugin or cookies (or similar technology), we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed. Also, advertisers receive the URL of the page that you are on when you click an ad on or through our Services. We also receive the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), your mobile operating system (if you are accessing Favly using a mobile device), and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information (for example, Pulse articles about your area or jobs postings in your location) on our mobile applications and for fraud prevention and security purposes. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to us, and of course we will honor your settings. If you choose no longer to be a Business Member or user, we will delete this information.
Favly communicates with you using email and text messaging, and other ways available to us. We may send you email and text messages, notices, and announcements relating to the availability of the Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also may send promotional messages to your by email and text message at the accounts and cell phone numbers set forth in your account settings. You may change your email settings, mobile devise, and telephone numbers at any time. Examples of these communications include: (1) welcome and engagement communications advising you about how to best use our Services, new features, updates and announcements regarding products and services that may be purchased from Favly paid Business Members; (2) service communications, including service availability, security, and other issues about the functioning of our Services; (3) promotional communications, which may be sent to you by email, text messaging or other electronic means. These messages will be sent to you based on your profile and account information, as well as your messaging preferences. You may change your email, mobile devise telephone number, and contact preferences at any time by signing into your Favly account and changing your account preferences settings. You can also opt out of promotional messages by sending a request to the Favly Help Center. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU CANNOT OPT OUT OF RECEIVING SERVICE MESSAGES FROM FAVLY DIRECTLY.
With certain communications you send on our Services, the recipient can see your name, email address, cell phone number, and some network information. Many communications that you initiate through our Services (for example, an invitation sent to a non-Member) will list your name and primary email address in the header of the message, or your mobile devise number. Messages you initiate may also provide the recipient with aggregate information about your network (for example, how many people are in your network). Other communications that you initiate through the Services, like a request for an introduction, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal email address contact information. Once you have connected with an individual, regardless of who sent the invitation, your contact information will be shared with that individual. Favly uses automatic scanning technology to help protect you and other Members. Such technology checks links and other content in your emails, network updates and Group contributions to help us identify and block malicious links and malware, reduce spam and optimize the delivery of our Services.
At Favly we use the information and content you provide to us to conduct research and development and to customize your experience and try to make it relevant and useful to you. This information and content that you and other users and paid subscribers provide to us is used by Favly to conduct research and development in order to improve our Services and provide all users and paid subscribers with a good experience when using the Favly website or app.
Favly may from time to time conduct our own surveys and polls and also help third parties do this type of research. Your participation in surveys or polls is completely voluntary and up to you. You may opt out of getting invitations to participate such surveys. We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls. If the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide personal information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will be used only for the purpose of delivering incentives and verifying your contact information. Again, this is completely voluntary, and it is up to you whether or not you wish provide this information, and whether or not you wish to take advantage of such incentives. Your consent to use any personal information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it, and again this is completely voluntary. You may opt out of participating in surveys by changing your settings to stop receiving these inquiries and requests.
You are responsible for the content of any information you post on the FAVLY website or app, and this content will be accessible to others.
Favly may disclose your personal information if compelled by law, subpoena, or other legal process, or if necessary to enforce our Use Agreement. It is possible that Favly may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a user, paid subscriber, or visitor when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process, whether in the United States, or other jurisdictions, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the Use Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of Favly, our users, paid subscribers, and visitors, personnel, or others. Favly will attempt to notify users, paid subscribers, and visitors about legal demands for their personal information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every demand.
Favly may employ third parties to help us with the Services. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, marketing and development). These third parties have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and shall be obligated to Favly not to disclose or use it for any other purposes.
Favly may process your information outside the country where you live. Favly may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever Favly, its affiliates and service providers operate.
As a user or paid Business Member at Favly, you may change your account information at any time by editing your account and profile, deleting content that you have posted, or by closing your account. You can also ask us for additional information we may have about your account. You have a right to: (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information that you have posted, downloaded or synched with your account and your profile, (2) change or remove your content, and (3) close your account. You can request your personal information that is not viewable on your profile or readily accessible to you (for example, your IP access logs) through the Favly Help Center. If you close your account(s), your information will generally be deleted and removed from the Service within 72 hours. We generally delete closed account information and will depersonalize any logs or other backup information through the deletion process within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.
Information that you have shared with others, or that others have copied, may also remain visible after you have closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile. In addition, you may not be able to access, correct, or eliminate any information about you that other users and paid Business Members copied or exported out of our Services, because this information may not be in our control. Your public profile may be displayed in search engine results until the search engine refreshes its cache.
Favly does not share any of your personal information with third parties for direct marketing. California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
