Information We Collect
Registration Information. If you sign up for an Account, We ask You to provide Us with personal information, such as Your name, email, phone number, and at a later stage username, and password. We may also ask You to personalize Your user experience with other information such as Your location and Your individual preferences. This information collectively is referred to as "Registration Information."
User IDs and Device IDs. When You install the Application, We create a unique identification number associated with that installation of the software (“User ID”).
Usage Information. We also collect information about how You use Our Services, including how You view and interact with content, the parts of Our Services that You use, information You search for, content that You view, and actions You take.
Log Data. When You use Our Services, We automatically record information about Your use (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as Your computer's or mobile device's Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the webpage You were visiting before you came to Our Site, pages of Our Site that You visit, access times, and dates and other statistics.
Information Regarding Your Social Networking Services (“SNS”). As a Kredivo user, You can interact with and use SNS, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. To do so, You must provide Kredivo with Your Account credentials (typically username and password) for an SNS. Kredivo will retain those credentials, keep them private and use them to enable Your access to the SNS. When You choose to access an SNS via the Services, Kredivo may collect from the SNS Your address, gender, user ID, list of friends, and any information you've chosen to make public through the SNS. For example, via application, You can access and log in to Your LinkedIn account by entering Your LinkedIn account credentials. We encourage You to read the privacy policies and other statements of the SNS You use. You can disable the connection between Your Application and an SNS you've chosen to access at any time via the relevant SNS.
Information Regarding Your Google Account (“Google”). As a Kredivo user, You may connect one or more of Google services such as Gmail, Google+, etc. When You connect Your Google account, Kredivo may collect information such as account name, account age, Your age, location, gender, volume and velocity of emails, and emails from any suspicious senders, in order to verify Your identity and determine Your credit score. If You need to opt-out at any time from providing Kredivo access to this data, You may do so in Your Google account settings.
Surveys and Promotions. From time to time, We may provide You the opportunity to participate in surveys, contests, or sweepstakes via Our Services. If You participate, We may request certain additional information from you.

Cookies & Other Technologies
Our services may use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that We transfer to Your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We may use “persistent cookies” to save Your username and login password for future logins to the Services. We also may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Services or to better understand how You interact with the Services. You can instruct Your Web browser to stop accepting cookies or to prompt You before accepting certain or all cookies. If You do not accept cookies, however, You may not be able to use all aspects of the Services. Cookies placed on Your device or computer by Kredivo or any third-party site or service that You may access through the Services may remain stored on Your device or computer until You remove them.
Some browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) feature that, when activated, signals to websites that You do not want to be tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to browser DNT signals, We do not currently respond to them.

Children and Minor's Information
We do not provide any services to anyone under the age of 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided Us with any personally identifiable information without their consent, he or she should contact Us at email@example.com. If We become aware that anyone under the age of 18 has provided Us with any personally identifiable information, We will delete such information and the account.
Kredivo employs reasonable physical, technological, and administrative security measures to protect the information it collects. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while We use commercially acceptable means to protect the information We collect, We cannot guarantee its absolute security. If Kredivo learns of a security breach that results in the unauthorized disclosure of Your Registration Information, We may attempt to notify You electronically through the Services so that You can take appropriate protective steps. Kredivo may also send an e-mail to You at the e-mail address You have provided to Us for a notification pursuant to this paragraph.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Kredivo. Safeguarding information to help protect You from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request Your credit card information, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

If You choose to visit a third-party service or an advertiser by “clicking on” a third-party link, You will be directed to that third party's website or online service. The fact that We link to a website, content, or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of Our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information You submit to them. We encourage You to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites and services You use. We do not exercise control over third-party websites or services.
