Privacy Policy

Last Updated: February 16th, 2016

This Privacy Policy explains the information that Welkio Inc. (“Welkio”, “we” or “us”) collect about users of its website, and products and services available as mobile applications or through the website (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us.

  1. Information We Collect

    When you interact with us through the Site, we may collect information from you, as further described below:

    1. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) That You Provide. We collect PII from you when you (or your users) provide such information to contact us with inquiries, register online for access to the Services, and use the Services. Examples of PII include your name, address, telephone numbers, email addresses, credit card numbers and the like. By providing us with PII, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Your PII will be kept on our servers and those of our service providers located in the United States. You hereby consent to such use and storage of PII.

    2. Aggregate Data. Welkio also collects information that is not PII. Such “Aggregate Data” is collected passively using various technologies, or is generated from PII using statistical or analytical means. Aggregate Data does not specifically identify you. Welkio may store Aggregate Data itself or with third party service providers. You consent to our use of Aggregate Data for the purpose of analyzing how our services are used, improving our services, tracking purposes, marketing, and other purposes as long as you are not personally identified by such use. We may also pool Aggregate Data with other information for these purposes.

    3. How We Collect Information. In operating the Site, we may use a technology called “cookies” to assist us in collecting both PII and Aggregate Data. A cookie is a piece of information that our computers give to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect PII except as set forth in this Privacy Policy. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of our special features.

  2. Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information

    We may use information about you for various purposes. PII may be used by us and third party vendors to:

    • Provide, maintain and improve our Services
    • Process transactions and send you related information that you request;
    • Respond to your comments, questions and requests and provide customer service;
    • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages;
    • Communicate with you about other Services, offers, promotions, rewards, and events offered by us and others, and provide news and information we think will be of interest to you;
    • Personalize and improve the Services and provide advertisements, content or features that match user profiles or interests;
    • Link or combine with information we get from others to help understand your needs and provide you with better service; and
    • Detect, investigate and/or prevent fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity.

    We will never sell or otherwise disclose any of your PII to a third party without your consent, and will only use PII in the manner set forth in this Privacy Policy.

    Aggregate Data may be used by us and third party vendors to:

    • Provide, maintain and improve our Services
    • Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities in connection with our Services;
    • Personalize and improve the Services and provide advertisements, content or features that match aggregate user profiles or interests;
    • Link or combine with information we get from others to help understand customer needs and provide customers with better service;

    Aggregate information will not contain PII or be presented in a way that identifies you as an individual.

  3. Children’s Information

    Welkio does not knowingly collect PII or Aggregate Data from children under the age of 13. Our Site is not intended for the use of minors. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide PII to any site without permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided PII to Welkio, please contact us, and we will delete that information from our databases.

  4. Information Security

    We employ procedural and technological measures to protect your PII. These measures are reasonably designed to help protect your PII from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We may use software, secure socket layer technology (SSL) encryption, password protection, firewalls, internal restrictions and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your PII. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or use your PII for improper purposes. Therefore, you should be aware that when you voluntarily display or distribute PII, that information could be collected and used by others. We are not responsible for the unauthorized use by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available publicly.

  5. Links to Other Websites

    The Services may provide links to third party web sites or resources not associated with us (“External Websites”). Such links do not constitute an endorsement by us of the External Websites, the content displayed therein, or the persons or entities associated therewith. You acknowledge that we provide these links as a convenience, and you agree that we are not responsible for the content or your use of such External Websites.

  6. Changes to This Privacy Policy

    We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Welkio after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are material, we may provide more prominent notice or seek your consent to the new policy.

  7. Information Disclosure for Legal and Other Exceptional Reasons

    We may also disclose your PII: (a) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or otherwise in cooperation with an investigation of a governmental authority, (b) to enforce our Terms of Use or (c) to protect our rights and the safety of users of our Site and our Services. In addition, we may transfer your PII to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Welkio or its parent entity participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Welkio’s (or its parent entity’s) assets to which this Site relates. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your PII, as well as any choices you may have regarding your PII.

  8. Updating, Correcting and Deleting Your Information

    You have the right to review, correct and request the deletion of any of the PII that was entered through your use of the Site or our Services. To correct or delete any information through the Services, you should have the administrator of your account make the revisions through the Service dashboard. Alternatively, you may contact us directly by e-mailing us at feedback@welkio.com. We will respond to the request within 30 days. You may also mail your request to the address at the end of this Privacy Policy.

  9. Opt-Out Preferences

    Out of respect for your privacy, if you wish to opt-out of receiving non-critical messages from us, or you wish us to stop using your name or logo as permitted in our Terms of Service, you may opt out by editing your communication preferences through the Service, or by emailing us at feedback@welkio.com.

  10. Transfer of Information

    Your PII collected on this Site and through the Services is stored and processed in the United States where Welkio (or its agents) currently maintain its computer systems. Your personal data will be processed by us in the United States where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. If you are a visitor or user of the Site or Services from outside the United States, by using them you agree to this Privacy Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection of that required in the European Union or certain other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.
