Last Updated — May 25, 2012

We at Jirbo, Inc., including its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, if any ("Jirbo", "we", "us", "our"), know that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy explains how your personal information is collected and used by Jirbo. By visiting or using Jirbo's applications, website (the "Site") and services, including, but not limited to AdColony, and any other linked pages, features, content, or any other services we offer from time to time by or in connection therewith (collectively, the "Services"), you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we may collect, use, and share your information in the manner and ways outlined in this Privacy Policy.


1. What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information as more fully described below ("Personal Information") that we gather when you are accessing or using the Services. Personal Information specifically does not include aggregate information, which is data we collect about the characteristics and activities of users of the Site and the Services, from which any personal information has been removed. This privacy policy in no way limits or restricts our collection of aggregate information or of non-personal information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage. This Privacy Policy also does not apply to information you choose to disclose publicly via the Services (i.e., information which is viewable to other users of the Services), which will not be considered Personal Information.

2. What personal information does Jirbo collect?

We collect the following types of information from our users:

A. Personal Information You Provide to Us

We receive and store any information you provide to us. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, address, user name, email address, IP address, and phone number. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features that are optimized based upon some of your Personal Information. We use the Personal Information you provide to enhance your experience with the Services, to personalize and improve the overall quality of the Services and to better understand what products and services are of interest to our users.

B. Information Collected Automatically

C. E-mail Communications

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make emails more interesting and improve the Services. If you do not want to receive email from us, please indicate your preference by following the "Unsubscribe" link on the bottom of any email from us.

3. Will Jirbo share any of the Personal Information it receives?

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form only as described below.

A. Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control

In certain situations, businesses we're affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you in conjunction with the Services (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such a transaction.

B. Agents and Service Providers

We employ other agents and service providers to perform services and other tasks on our behalf and need to share your Personal Information with them to provide the Services to you. While these agents and service providers may have access to your Personal Information in connection with the performance of services and other tasks for Jirbo, they may not use such information for any purpose other than providing such services and tasks to Jirbo.

C. Your Actions

Any information or content (including without limitation email addresses, user names, photos, images, captions, and comments) you voluntarily disclose for other users to view via the Services is not Personal Information; it becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others, and may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels.

D. Communication About the Services

As part of the Services, you may receive communications from us, whether by email or other means. We may send you email, contact you, or engage you in other communication that is related to your use of the Services.

E. Promotional Offers

We may send offers to certain users on behalf of Jirbo, our partners or other businesses. However, when we do so, we do not give the other business your name and address. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please unsubscribe to these communications via the link at the bottom of such communications. If you do opt-out or unsubscribe, we may still send you non-promotional emails about your accounts or our other ongoing business relations with you.

F. Corporate Transfers and Financings

We may share your Personal Information in connection with any merger, sale of Jirbo assets, or a financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.

G. Protection of Jirbo and Others

We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law, enforce or apply our terms and conditions of use or service and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Jirbo, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

H. With Your Consent

Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.

4. Is Personal Information about me secure?

We take reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the 100% security of any information that we receive.

5. Third Party Sites

The Services regularly interact with third party sites and applications. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites and applications. When linking to another site or application, you should read that party's privacy policy.
