Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy will help you understand how and when Bump (the “App”) collects, uses, and shares information about you (your “Data”) when you use our Services. Using any of our Services means you are allowing us to collect, store, share, and use your Data as stated on the registration screen.

The privacy policy is divided into five parts:

PART I applies to Data about users of our App and Services (“Data we collect and use”).

PART II applies to Data provided by users of our App and Services (“Managing your Data”).

PART III applies to our Data sharing with third-party individuals or organizations (“Information sharing and disclosure”).

PART IV applies to our Data policies regarding users aged 13 years-old and younger (“Children’s Privacy Policy”).

PART V applies to future updates and changes in our Privacy Policy (“Changes in Privacy Policy”).

PART I – Data We Collect and Use

Basic Account Information

We receive and use the Data you provide us when you register for our Services. When you create an account, we collect your full name and phone number.

Upon registration, users will be provided with a unique auto-generated username. You can change your username, profile picture, and avatar in the Profile Information setting

An auto-generated username is provided to each user upon registration, which can be changed in the Profile Information settings. You may upload a profile image and an avatar for profile customization. 

Public Information

The username and avatar you provide are available for public view. This Data can be listed on user search results, your user profile, and the home page. Other account information, such as your provided name and avatar, will not be displayed publicly. 

Any Bumps you post can be viewed by users who follow you and near your location. Other users may view your list of followers and those you follow. 

We record all the Bumps you like and interact with. This information will help us further personalize your App experience, such as curating the posts and recommendations shown on your feed. 

Contact information and Address Book

We utilize your phone number as your login ID. By providing and registering your phone number, you automatically agree to receive SMS from our Services. Every login requires you to authenticate your account by inputting a verification code sent to your registered phone number. 

Your registered phone number is not be listed or viewable on your account and is not searchable by other users. However, you may be recommended to other users with your phone number stored in their address book. We can recommend other App users based on the contact numbers stored in your address book. This feature is activated only if you allow us to access your address book. 

Location information

Providing access to your location allows us to give you a more personalized experience. We use your location Data to find more relevant content for you and your current location. Location can be shared to your approved list of users and followers if you post a Bump with your location attached. 

If you allow access to your location, we automatically receive Data about your location and/or IP address whenever you use/interact with Services. Allowing background information in our App will give us permission to collect Data on your location even when you are using your App or the App is closed. Your location data is never shared with others, except with your consent or as permitted under this Privacy Policy.  

You may turn off location services by going to your device settings and adjusting your background location settings. 

Media

The App requires at least one (1) photo or video to post a Bump. To add photos or videos to your post, you must allow the App to access your gallery, camera, and microphone. In addition, a description and location should also be provided before posting your Bump. By posting a Bump, you automatically agree that all the information you uploaded is for public viewing and all content you publish is under your responsibility. 

Other Information

You may allow the App to send you push notifications for any in-app activity. We notify you when another user follows you, interacts or likes your Bump post, and when you bump into an App user near you. You can customize the push notifications you receive by going to your device settings and changing your settings for Manage Notifications.

Data Protection

Your data is contained behind secured networks and all sensitive data you provide is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Access to your information is accessible only to a limited number of people who have special access rights and are under contract to keep the data confidential/under confidentiality contract. 

PART II – Managing your information

As a user of our Service, you have the right to access, modify, and delete your Data at any time. 

Changing Personal Information

You can access and update your Data at any time. Access your Data through your App’s Account Page by tapping on the Settings tab. To change your name, username, phone number, and profile pictures, select the Profile Information tab. To manage the push notifications you receive, select Manage Notification tab. Once saved, any changes made to your App settings are applied immediately.    

Deactivate Account

You may delete your Data and account at any time by going to the Settings tab and selecting Account Settings then Deactivate My Account. A pop-up will prompt you to confirm the deactivation of your account. 

Your Data will only be deleted 90 days after deactivation. During this 90-day period, your Data will not be searchable and accessible to anyone. You can retrieve or reactivate your account by simply logging in within the deactivation period.

PART III – Data sharing and disclosure

Third-party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personally Identifiable Information (“PPI”) to outside parties. This is only done only with our prior notice and your consent. Exemptions to this are our website hosting partners and other parties that assist in operating our App, conduct our business, or serving our users, so long as they are operate under a Data confidentiality agreement. We may also release PPI when its release is appropriate. This includes cases when it is in compliance with the law, to enforce our Service policies, or to protect our Service’s or other’s rights, property or safety. 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be shared with other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. 

Cookies

We do not use cookies for tracking purposes. You can set your device to alert you any time a cookie is being sent, or you can opt out completely by turning off all cookies. You can control cookies through your browser settings. To learn the correct way to modify or opt out of cookies, refer to your browser’s Help Menu. If you choose to turn off cookies, certain features of the App may not function properly and affect your overall experience with the Service.    

Google

Google advertising requirements can be found in their Google Ads Policies. These requirements are put into place to provide a safe and transparent experience for users, advertisers, and publishers. Google uses both automated and human evaluation to ensure strict compliance of their policies.  

Currently, we have not enabled Google AdSense on our App. This may be subject to change in the future.

PART IV – Children’s Privacy Policy

You must be over thirteen (13) years old to create an account and use our Services. We do not specifically market Bump to children under the age stated. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States of America’s consumer protection agency, enforces the Children Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) which dictates what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. In line with COPPA’s policies, we will terminate any account owned by anyone thirteen (13) years old or younger when we are informed of the account’s existence.

PART V – Changes to this Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy may be updated and modified as we continue to develop our Service and its features. Additionally, over time, we will be making organizational, stylistic, and grammatical changes to our Privacy Policy to make our practices easily understood by you, our users. We will notify you about any changes to our policies through push notifications. By continuing to access or use our Services after policy changes are in effect, you have agreed to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
