Kapesni, LLC Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how Kapesni, LLC (“Kapesni,” "we”, “us,” or “our”) collects, uses, and discloses individually identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we obtain through our services (“Service”), website at www.kapesni.com and subdomains thereof (“Site”), and downloaded apps (“App”). Kapesni will take all reasonable steps to protect user privacy consistent with the guidelines set forth in this policy and with applicable U.S. laws. In this policy, "user" or "you" means any person using the Service, whether by uploading content, visiting the website, or using our apps. Please read this information carefully. By using our Service and this Site, and/or submitting any Personal Information, you expressly consent to the terms in this Privacy Policy, as well as the Terms of Use (www.kapesni.com/terms_of_use.)

Collection of Personal Information
We collect various categories of Personal Information on this Site. If you submit any Personal Information, including an inquiry or question via an online form or email, we may collect your name, email address, or other Personal Information contained in that correspondence. Kapesni uses web tracking technologies to collect information in an aggregate form that does not identify the individual user, and only for us to understand how well our Service is working. For example, we may develop anonymous, aggregate, statistical information on usage of the Kapesni website (which we may disclose to business partners and investors), such as by keeping count of return visitors to the Kapesni website and assessing which pages of the website are most popular. This allows us to determine which features visitors like best to help us improve our Service, personalize your user experience, and measure overall effectiveness. With respect to all Site visitors, we do not wish to collect any "sensitive" Personal Information, such as racial or ethnic origin, age, political, religious, or philosophical beliefs, sexual life, social security or other government identification numbers, trade union membership, health or medical conditions, or criminal history.

Location Tracking Information
When participants use Kapesni on their mobile devices, Kapesni may, with your permission, collect location tracking information that tells Kapesni the locations of visitors based on the location of their device. We use location tracking information for the purposes of showing you nearby organizations and Tours, and enabling you to access other location-based features of the service.

Use of Personal Information
We may use Personal Information to respond to your inquiries and answer your questions, to provide you with requested information, and to undertake activities in connection with the conduct and management of our Service. We also may use Personal Information for the purposes of testing and maintaining our databases, networks, and computer systems, and for training and other internal purposes.

We also use your Personal Information to contact you and provide you with information that may be useful or interesting to you, including newsletters regarding changes and upgrades to the Service as well as promotional e-mails. You agree to receive this information from us. If you do not want us to send you emails or otherwise contact you, you can always opt out of communications by following the instructions we provide to you when we contact you.

Disclosure of Personal Information
We may share Personal Information with our offices and affiliates where necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of our Services. We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, including information technology providers and business process outsourcing providers, in order to help support our business operations. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of all or part of the business, or where we believe such disclosure may be required by law or may be appropriate in connection with any legal claims. We may also use, disclose, or otherwise process any information for statistical or any other purposes that we choose in our sole discretion, as long as such information is not in personally identifiable form.

Site Usage Data
Like many websites, we passively collect data about website usage through various means. We use Internet protocol (IP) addresses to identify server problems, administer the Site, and compile aggregated statistics for marketing and research purposes. We use navigational data, including log files and click-stream data, to identify information about your web browser and operating system, and the time period in which you visit the Site or a portion of the Site. This information is used to administer the Site, improve Site content, and compile aggregated statistics for research purposes. We also use small text files called "cookies" that are sent to the hard drive of your computer to store bits of information related to your use of the Site. You may configure your Internet browser to reject cookies. However, if you do so, you might not be able to access important functions or enjoy certain conveniences at this Site. We use cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests. We typically do not combine passively collected data with actively collected Personal Information, and therefore passively collected data should not become linked to your identity.

Usage Information
When you use the Site, we may record information about your usage of the Site, the Tours you download or publish, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you post about yourself as well as information you click on in the Site (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your user account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery. Some of this data may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you.

Information That is Publicly Available
Information that you post in public areas of the Site or publish as part of a Kapesni Tour may be accessed, used, and stored by others. We use reasonable measures to limit access to our Service to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not gain access to our Site and the data it contains. Therefore, we suggest that you not post sensitive information to the Site.

Any Tours that you submit to us may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other users or the general public. You may also choose to add personal information which may include your name, title, email address, telephone number, physical address, picture, or other details, that will be visible to other users on your organization overview page.

Security of Personal Information
We maintain reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. To the extent that we disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, we require that such third parties also maintain reasonable security and confidentiality measures and use the Personal Information in accordance with our instructions. In addition, where we disclose Personal Information to third parties mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs, we will request that they properly protect the security and confidentiality of such information, and otherwise process such data in accordance with applicable law.

Network Operators
Use of the Service involves use of the services of third party telecommunications carriers and service providers (such as the services of the carrier that provides cellphone service to you). Such carriers and service providers are not Kapesni's contractors, and any information that a carrier collects in connection with your use of the Service is not "Personal Information" and is not subject to this Privacy Policy. Kapesni is not responsible for the acts or omissions of telecommunications carriers or service providers. Kapesni reserves the right to disclose any information Kapesni collects in connection with the Service, including Personal Information and Location Information, (a) to any successor to Kapesni's business as a result of any merger, acquisition or similar transaction; and (b) to any law enforcement, judicial authority, or governmental or regulatory authority, to the extent required by law or if in Kapesni's reasonable discretion disclosure is necessary to protect Kapesni's legal rights or to protect third parties.

Password-Protected Areas
Certain areas of the Service and Site are password-protected and reserved for registered users. It is your responsibility to safeguard any password and user ID that you have to access these portions of the Site, and to notify us if you ever suspect that this password and/or user ID has been compromised. You are solely responsible for any unauthorized use of this Site conducted via your password and user ID.

Access to Personal Information
Kapesni does not sell or rent its mailing list, and will not disclose your Personal Information to any third parties except (i) to third party contractors engaged to provide services on behalf of Kapesni; (ii) when we have your consent to share the information. Please note, however, that if you consent to share such information, it may be maintained in our archives or be maintained by our business partners—such as your email address when you choose to be added to a subscriber’s email list—in accordance with their respective privacy policies.

Your Choices
If you have an account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences and privacy settings at any time by visiting your account profile page. If you decline to provide Personal Information, we may not be able to provide certain services to you.

Links to Other Internet Sites
The Site may provide links to other third-party Internet sites. Despite these linkages, or any references to Kapesni.com at those Internet sites, this Privacy Policy applies to this Site only. Please note when the URL indicates you are no longer on this Site, and read the privacy policy of each Internet site that you visit. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such Internet sites.

Visitors from Outside the United States
KAPESNI and its servers are located in the United States and are subject to the applicable state and federal laws of the United States. If you choose to access or use the Service, you consent to the use and disclosure of information in accordance with this privacy policy and subject to such laws.

Kapesni does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of the Service is directed at persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the Service. If Kapesni learns that personally identifiable information of persons less than 13 years of age has been collected without verifiable parental consent, then Kapesni will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. To make such a request, please contact us at support@kapesni.com.

Changes to Our Privacy Practices
Kapesni may modify or amend this policy from time to time. If we make any material changes, as determined by Kapesni, in the way in which Personal Information is collected, used or transferred, we will notify you of these changes by modification of this Privacy Policy, which will be available for review by you at the Service. Notwithstanding any modifications we may make, any Personal Information collected by Kapesni from you will be treated in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at the time information was collected, unless we obtain your consent otherwise. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to create an agreement or contract between us and any person or entity using this Site or providing any Personal Information.

Deleting Your Personal Information
If you would like your Personal Information permanently removed from our mailing list or database, please contact us at support@kapesni.com. We don’t have the ability to remove Personal Information, if any, that you may have chosen to share with our Partners or any organizations that use the Kapesni Services. You must contact such organizations yourself to have your information removed in accordance with their respective policies.

Legal Exception
Notwithstanding the above, Kapesni may in any event use Personal Information and other information collected through the Service to the extent required by law or legal process, or if in Kapesni's reasonable discretion use is necessary to protect Kapesni's legal rights or to protect third parties.
