Effective: July 1, 2013
CloudJabber, LLC ("CloudJabber", "we" or "us") is an online service provider that provides a set of services and technology applications that enable users to create their own Clouds utilizing our technology platform (the "CloudJabber Platform"). CloudJabber is not involved in the management of Clouds on the CloudJabber Platform and is not involved in the decisions relating to the focus of Clouds or the Content uploaded or published to Clouds using the CloudJabber Platform. These are your Clouds and, as a Cloud Creator, you are responsible for managing them in all respects (including the actions, conduct, and Content of Your Members) in compliance with the CloudJabber Terms of Service.
HOW THE CLOUDJABBER PLATFORM OPERATES
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
In order to create a Cloud using the CloudJabber Platform, Cloud Creators must register for account credentials. When you register for account credentials, CloudJabber collects certain Personal Information, including your name, email address, and a password that you select. In addition, Cloud Creators must provide their credit card or other payment information and telephone number (for customer support purposes). CloudJabber or its third party payment providers use this Personal Information billing information solely to administer your services on the CloudJabber Platform and to process your transactions including your purchase of CloudJabber Product Plans, Support Services, and upgrades.
Cloud Creators and Third Party Application Developers might use the CloudJabber Platform to collect, use, and retain all information, including Personal Information and Cloud Data, that is disclosed and uploaded by Members in connection with their use of Clouds. “Cloud Data” means as all data collected from a Cloud or Member and includes registration information, profile data, answers to Cloud profile questions, all Content and other information contributed by Members, and statistical information and analytics relating to usage and interactions within the Cloud. When a User signs up to become a member of a Cloud, he or she is providing Personal Information to that Cloud's Cloud Creator and such Cloud Creator and its designated administrators will have access to all Personal Information and Cloud Data associated with any such Cloud. In addition, Cloud Creators will have the ability to reset Member passwords in the event that a Member loses or can’t remember it.
Cloud Creators and Third Party Application Developers might also collect additional types of Personal Information. For each Cloud you use, you should check with the Cloud Creator regarding its policies governing its collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. Additionally, for each Third Party Application that you add to your Cloud or your profile, you should check with the Third Party Application Developer regarding its policies governing its collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information.
PASSIVE DATA COLLECTION
Like most web-based services, CloudJabber automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser when you use the CloudJabber Platform. We may use a variety of methods, including clear GIFs (also known as "web beacons"), and "cookies" to collect this information. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, CloudJabber cookie information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the CloudJabber Platform, and the "referring URL" (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the CloudJabber Platform).
Also, please be aware that other third parties, including advertising servers, advertising networks, Third Party Application Developers may set cookies or use other means of passively collecting information about your use of their services on the CloudJabber Platform. We do not have access to, or control over, these cookies or other means of passive data collection. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these Third Party Application Developers, advertising servers or advertising networks. We cannot control the activities of such third parties.
THIRD PARTY ADVERTISERS
We do not provide your Personal Information to these third-party ad servers or ad Clouds without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.

WHEN CLOUDJABBER DISCLOSES PERSONAL INFORMATION
CloudJabber Service Providers
We may provide Personal Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., payment processing, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, or data hosting) on our behalf.
We may disclose Personal Information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose Personal Information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the CloudJabber Terms of Service, or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of CloudJabber, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.
CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including email addresses, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify registered users of such a transfer (by a posting on our home page, or by email to a Member's email address that was provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our Cloud and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent "hackers" or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. We do not assume any liability to third parties whose information you include in your Address Book, or which you post or transmit in any Content on a Cloud. To help maintain the security of your account credentials, please keep your password secure.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the CloudJabber Platform or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the CloudJabber Platform. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on our homepage, www.CloudJabber.com, or elsewhere on the CloudJabber Platform and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us.

We do not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides Personal Information through the CloudJabber Platform represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that Personal Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the CloudJabber Platform, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a Member, please contact CloudJabber at email@example.com to have that child's account terminated and information deleted. The following are some resources that may help parents and legal guardians in monitoring and limiting your children's access to certain types of material on the Internet. While we do not endorse these products, we provide information about them as a public service to our community.
We may send you administrative messages, and updates regarding your account, the CloudJabber Platform, and our services, by email. Cloud Creators may also send administrative or promotional messages to the extent permitted by applicable law and the CloudJabber Terms of Service. Additionally, you can choose to opt-out of receiving messages from CloudJabber or a Cloud by following the directions on the bottom of the email message you receive.
The CloudJabber Terms of Service prohibits Users from engaging in any activity involving the sending of email in violation of applicable law, including CAN-SPAM and other laws regulating unsolicited commercial email. Violations of these policies may result in immediate termination of service and legal action against any senders or initiators of such messages.
