PRIVACY

We at Centric, Inc. ("Centric") are dedicated to protecting your privacy and handling any personally identifiable information we obtain from you with care and respect through our site www.centric.nyc and our mobile application.
When this Privacy Policy uses the term "personally identifiable information," we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's name, address, email, and phone number. Personally identifiable information is also referred to in this Privacy Policy as "Personal Information."
As used in this Privacy Policy, "Centric" includes all of its subsidiary and affiliated entities. Centric is referred to in this Privacy Policy as "we," "us," "our," and "ourselves." The term the "Service(s)" includes www.centric.nyc as well as any other web sites (the "Site(s)"), applications, and related services operated by Centric.

1. How your Privacy is Protected

Centric takes reasonable steps to protect your personal information, such as requiring a password at login. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You, the user, are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your login information to help prevent others from accessing your personally identifiable information. We transmit your location information via secure socket layer technology (SSL).

2. Information You Provide to Us

We receive Personal Information directly from users who are interested in obtaining access to "logged in" user portions of the Sites, mobile applications or various products and services from us or from third parties. We collect Personal Information when you register, access, or visit the Service, including when you participate in activities in the Service.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, and location information. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also use this Personal Information in order to adapt the Services to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Personal Information collected by Centric other than Personal Information collected through the Service.

All Unsolicited Information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and Centric shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, distribute and exploit such Unsolicited Information without limitation or attribution.

3. Information Collected Through Passive Means

We collect information passively using technology to make our Service more interesting and useful. For instance, when you visit one of our Sites, your IP address is collected. An IP address is often associated with the network through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP or your company. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our Service. We may also use passively collected information to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer the Service.
Centric may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Centric affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Centric Service. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Centric often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Centric may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. Centric may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes. When you download and use our Services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use, operating system version, and unique device identifiers. When you use the Service we may store a small amount of information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file. Cookies are small files stored on your computer, not on our Site. We use cookies in our web tools to deliver content specific to your interests, and so that you do not need to reenter all your registration data at each visit. Through your web browser you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookie settings. Our Sites may also use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, such as pixel tags (for more information about pixel tags, please read below). We may also use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on our Sites.

Mobile Analytics

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Software on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. To the extent the information collected is associated with your personally identifiable information, we treat that information as personally identifiable as described in this Privacy Policy. To provide the Services, we may derive location information from your wireless carrier, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device that you are using. When you use the Services, our servers automatically record certain information about your usage. These server logs may include information such as a mobile device identification number and device identifier, web requests, IP address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, search terms, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, features used in the Services, the amount of time spent on particular screens, the dates and times of your requests, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

4. Use of Personally Identifiable Information

We may use your personally identifiable information in many ways, including helping improve your experience on the Service, troubleshooting, and sharing your information with third parties so that these third parties can provide services to you. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, and sending out emails or push notifications. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We may also supplement personally identifiable information that we have collected directly from our users with other information that we obtain from third party partners Our Service is about sharing location and finding friends and others nearby, so we will use your location information to provide the basic functionality of the Service, such as displaying your location on the Services map to other users when you check-in using Centric or Third Party Services (defined below). Users viewing this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities outside of our control and without your knowledge. Your location information may be subject to abuse, misuse, and monitoring by others, and you share your location at your own risk. If you no longer wish to have your location information shared, you may delete your account and contact us at app@centric.nyc. You can also turn the location features off at the device level if you no longer wish to have your location information collected from the device. We may also take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals, or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you. We may aggregate or de-personalize your personal information, and we may use and/or share the resulting non-personally identifiable information with third parties in any way. We will send you service-related announcements via email or push notifications on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your accounts and passwords. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, to manage your account and to send you newsletters. You may opt-out from receiving our newsletter by following the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each communication.

5. Integrating Third Party Services within the Services:

One of the special features of the Service is that it allows you to enable various online third party services, such as social media and social networking services ("Third Party Services"), to be directly integrated into your Centric experience. By directly integrating these services, we make your online experiences richer, and more personalized. To take advantage of this feature, we will ask you to provide us your username and password for the relevant Third Party Services. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. By enabling such Third Party Services, you are allowing us to pass your log-in information and send and receive other information (such as geo-location, photos, and friend lists) to and from these service providers. When you add a Third Party Service account to the Service, we will collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Third Party Service and your data contained within that Third Party Service. When you post information through the Service to a Third Party Service, we will share that information with the Third Party Service. However, please remember that the manner in which Third Party Services use, store and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of such third parties, and Centric shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Third Party Service that may be enabled within the Service. If you wish to disable any of these services at any time, you may do so by logging into your account through our mobile application and remove them. We allow you the ability to chat with your friends through the mobile application. We are not responsible for any personal information you choose to share with others. You may receive push notifications for a variety of reasons, including when your friends post something nearby. If you do not wish to receive these types of notifications, you may logout of the application or, to the extent it is supported, adjust them from within the application or at the device level.

Tell-A-Friend

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our mobile application, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the mobile application. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral progoram. Your friend may contact us at app@centric.nyc to request that we remove this information from our database.
