Ellie Habotit Ltd., located at Shmuel Hanagid, Israel (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) respects your right to privacy. We want to enable you to make informed decisions about the use of your information.
Information We Collect
We will use the list of contacts you have shared with us for the purpose of finding matches for you in your social circles. We will never contact any of your contacts ourselves.
There is no legal obligation for you to provide us with your information, and the provision of the information depends on your will and consent. If you do not agree to provide the information, in whole or in part, certain aspects of the Services may not be available to you.
There is certain information that may be automatically collected by us about your computer, browser, operating system, IP address and/or mobile device, as well as your location.
How we protect your information
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
How We Use Information
We will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your explicit permission, except when required by law, regulation, subpoena, or court order or as otherwise expressly set forth herein. We use your Personal Information in order to provide you with our Services. We may use Personal Information and other information internally – for example, to diagnose problems with our servers or to make our Services more useful or tailored to your needs.
We will use the details you have provided us to create a profile for you. We will share your profile with other Users who we think may be compatible with you. We will only share your phone number with a User, if you have consented to it by clicking on a dedicated link. Using our artificial intelligence system, which analyzes the contacts you have shared and finds you matches in your wide social circles, we will inform you which of your contacts and/or social circles are shared by you and that certain User with whom you phone number was shared. By providing us with your contact list, you represent that you have received their consent to such delivery.
The following persons have authorized access to Personal Information: all Company staff members who work on the development of the Services. We may add or remove additional individuals with access rights, according to our business needs.
We may transfer your information to:
Companies affiliated with us, or suppliers and/or subcontractors, such as suppliers who collect, process and/or host data for us, e.g. suppliers of cloud storage services. We will require our affiliated companies, suppliers and/or subcontractors to act according to our privacy protection procedures.
Business partners with whom we may jointly offer products or services, or whose products or services may be offered on our Services. You will know when a third party is associated with an offer of a product or service when its name appears in the offer, alone or together with our name. If you choose to use these products or services, we may share information about you, including your Personal Information, with those partners. Please note that we do not control the privacy practices of these business partners. If you no longer wish to allow a third party to use your information, contact that third party.
In addition, by analyzing all information we receive, we may compile anonymized and/or deidentified statistical information across a variety of users (“Statistical Information”). Statistical Information helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires. Statistical Information does not indicate individuals’ identities, and we will not link Statistical Information to any Personal Information. We may share Statistical Information with our partners, pursuant to commercial terms that we determine in our sole discretion.
