Lokaso provides this Privacy Policy to help you make an informed decision about whether to use or continue using the Lokaso Site, Lokaso Software and/or the Lokaso Service. If you do not agree to our practices, please do not use the Lokaso Site, Lokaso Software,or Lokaso Service.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Lokaso Terms of Service. Your use of the Lokaso Site, Lokaso Software and the Lokaso Service and any personal information you provide on the Lokaso Site or Lokaso Service remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

Please note that any Status Submissions or other content posted at the direction or discretion of users of the Lokaso Service becomes published content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy is part of Lokaso’s Terms of Service and covers the treatment of user information, including personally identifying information, obtained by Lokaso, including information obtained when you access the Lokaso’s Site, use the Lokaso Service or any other software provided by Lokaso.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Lokaso does not own or control, or to individuals whom Lokaso does not employ or manage, including any of the third parties to which Lokaso may disclose user information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

The Information Lokaso Collects

Lokaso may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

User Provided Information: You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your mobile phone number, push notification name (if applicable), billing information (if applicable) and mobile device information to Lokaso when choosing to participate in various uses of the Lokaso Service, such as registering as a user, updating your status or requesting status for your contacts. In order to provide the Lokaso Service, Lokaso will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Lokaso users (“in-network” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “out-network” numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.

Cookies Information: When you visit the Lokaso Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Lokaso uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Lokaso Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Log File Information: When you use the Lokaso Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the Lokaso Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any status information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to.

The Information Lokaso Does Not Collect

Lokaso does not collect names, emails, addresses or other contact information from its users’ mobile address book or contact lists other than mobile phone numbers—the Lokaso mobile application will associate whatever name the Lokaso user has assigned to the mobile telephone number in his/her mobile address book or contact list — and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on Lokaso’s servers and is not transmitted to Lokaso. This means that if you have your friend’s mobile phone number associated with the name “Shakespeare” in your mobile address book, that’s the name that will appear for that mobile phone number in your Lokaso contact list. We do not collect location data, but users may voluntarily share their location with other users via the Lokaso Service.

The contents of messages that have been delivered by the Lokaso Service are not copied, kept or archived by Lokaso in the normal course of business. The Lokaso Service is meant to be a SMS replacement, using data service through a user’s phone (either via cell network or wifi). Users type their messages, which are sent via data service to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be a Lokaso user), if that recipient is online. If the recipient is not online, the undelivered message is held in Lokaso’s server until it can be delivered. If the message is undelivered for thirty (30) days, the undelivered message is deleted from our servers. Once a message has been delivered, it no longer resides on our servers. The contents of any delivered messages are not kept or retained by Lokaso — the only records of the content of any delivered messages reside directly on the sender’s and recipient’s mobile devices (and which may be deleted at the user’s option). Notwithstanding the above, Lokaso may retain date and time stamp information associated with successfully delivered messages and the mobile phone numbers involved in the messages, as well as any other information which Lokaso is legally compelled to collect. Files that are sent through the Lokaso Service will reside on our servers after delivery for a short period of time, but are deleted and stripped of any identifiable information within a short period of time in accordance with our general retention policies.

The Way Lokaso Uses Information

If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Lokaso Site, or Lokaso Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Lokaso Site and Lokaso Service. In particular, your mobile phone number is essential to your use of the Lokaso Service and will be retained. Any billing information that may be collected from you will be deleted thirty (30) days after the termination of your account with Lokaso. Any Personally Identifiable Information or status content that you voluntarily disclose on the Lokaso Service becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the Lokaso Service (unless such user is blocked by you). Your name (as it is saved in other user’s mobile phone address book or contact list) may be displayed to other users when you update your status messages through the Lokaso Service and other users may contact you through the Lokaso Service. We do not use your mobile phone number or other Personally Identifiable Information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your mobile phone number (or email address, if provided) without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Lokaso Site or Lokaso Service changes or for customer service purposes). We may use both your Personally Identifiable Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Lokaso Site and Lokaso Service and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. Hopefully we improve the Lokaso Site and Service and don’t make it suck worse. We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Lokaso Service or Lokaso Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

We do not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information (such as mobile phone number) with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the Lokaso Service. We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Lokaso Site. We may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as Indian Copyright Law), international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened. Lokaso also reserves the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Lokaso believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Lokaso Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Lokaso, our users or others.

We want you to feel confident about using Lokaso, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee security, we have implemented and maintain appropriate physical, administrative, technical, and organisational measures to protect the personal information you provide us against unauthorized or unlawful access, use of disclosure, and against accidental loss, damage, alteration or destruction. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they only may do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting your personal information between your system and ours, and between our system and those of the parties with whom we share sensitive information, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information.

Lokaso uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Lokaso and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Lokaso Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Lokaso makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems.

By using or accessing the Lokaso Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 13 below. Additionally, you will find resources at the end of this document that help you understand how Lokaso works.

Because Lokaso provides a wide range of Services, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific app, product, or service. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with this SRR, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.

This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
