Privacy Policy

Welcome to Klutch! Calaborate, Inc (“Calaborate,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) operates the Klutch mobile application and websites, each with links to this privacy policy (each, an “App” or a “Site”, respectively) and a number of related services (all such services, “Services”). Through our App and Services, we hope to break down scheduling and time management barriers and make your life easier.

Certain of our Services are designed for employees, contractors or agents associated with an entity that has an agreement with us for the provision of Services (such entity, an “Atlas Direct Customer”). To the extent you obtain access to our Services as part of your relationship with an Atlas Direct Customer, you acknowledge that we may share any data or personal information provided by, or obtained from, you, with the Atlas Direct Customer and we do not and will not control how the Atlas Direct Customer uses such information. You hereby consent to such disclosure. In addition, an Atlas Direct Customer or other users associated with such Atlas Direct Customer may provide information about you as part of the Services, and we will not consider this to be your Personal Information. As such, you will not have access or control over such information, which will be controlled by the Atlas Direct Customer and/or other users affiliated with Subscriber.

Because we gather important information from users of the Sites and Services, we have established this Privacy Policy as a means to communicate our information collection, use and dissemination practices. In order to access and use the Sites and/or Services, you must agree to our Terms of Use and any other applicable terms. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms of Use.

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY. BY USING THE SITES AND PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO THE TRANSFER OF DATA FROM YOUR COUNTRY TO A COUNTRY THAT HAS LESS STRINGENT LAWS, AND THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN CONFORMANCE WITH THIS POLICY.

So we are clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean your contact information (e.g., your name, address, email address, or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is associated with your contact information. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with individual persons.

Children

The Sites are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Sites or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Sites and the Services.

How We Collect Information

Personal Information

In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Services and helps us learn more about the use of the Sites and/or Services. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily.

When you download the App, we may collect your device type, your wireless carrier, and your individual device ID and we associate this with your Personal Information, though we primarily use this information to support your account and provide you with Services. To use our Services, you must register through the App by either connecting through your mobile phone number.

Our App pulls information about your contacts and schedule from your local calendar(s) on your mobile device, and we use that information to provide you certain functionality as part of the App. As this is associated with you, we consider it to be Personal Information. We may also send information back to your local calendar on your mobile device and to Third Party Services.

As you use the App, we may collect location-based information from you through your mobile or other location-aware device(s). When you communicate with us through our Sites or by sending us an email, we may collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Sites or Services you are able to use.

Anonymous Information

As you use the Sites, certain Anonymous Information may be passively collected and stored by us or on our behalf, such as your Internet protocol address, domain names, browser type, and access times. Cookies (as defined below) and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) may be used to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your browser while you are viewing a website. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions or functionalities of the Sites or Services.

Disclosure – Third Party Cookies

We may use a third party tracking service such as Google Analytics to track and analyze Anonymous Information from users of our Sites. Such third parties may use Cookies to help track user behavior. The use of these Cookies by third parties is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these Cookies.

Our Relationship with Third Party Services

We offer you interfaces that allow you to connect with social networking services such as Facebook (collectively, “Third Party Services”) through our Sites. We will work with the Third Party Services’ application protocol interface (better known as their developer API) in a way that allows you to authorize us to access your account on that Third Party Service on your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, except as set forth below, you will not provide us with your user name or password to the Third Party Service, but you will need to log-in to that Third Party Service directly through our Sites or App. Once authorized by you, the Third Party Service will provide us a token that allows it to recognize us when we ask, on your behalf, for access to your account information or to post information. You will be able to revoke our access to any Third Party Service at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on the applicable Third Party Service, though such revocation may limit the Services we are able to provide you.

Notwithstanding the above, if you are a user associated with a Klutch User, we may obtain your login information to enable a connection to the Klutch User’s systems. In such event: (i) we will use that information only to login to such system on your behalf for the purpose of providing you content and (ii) you must use the settings in your account to revoke our access. Please be aware that a Klutch User may revoke our access to your account at any time.

How We Use Information

Personal Information

We will use your Personal Information to:

  • Provide you with Services and customer support (and, if you are associated with an Atlas Direct Customer, to provide the Klutch User with Services, analytics and customer support);
  • Process payments relating to your account; • Market our products and services (and those of third parties) to you that we believe may be of interest to you, though we will not disclose your Personal Information in doing so. For example, we allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of users who will see their advertisements and we may use the attributes we have collected to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. For example, if you frequently schedule meetings in Los Angeles, we might use that fact to show you content related to Los Angeles (and to tell ad networks to serve those ads), but we do not tell any advertiser who you are to display the advertisement, though they may learn that you possess certain characteristics based on the fact that you received the advertisement;
  • Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;
  • Improve the quality of the Sites and the Services
  • Communicate with you about the Sites and the Services. Certain of our Services are location-specific and can provide helpful information based on where you are. If you tell us where you are (i.e., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may use that information to provide you with location-based information. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can disable location services on your mobile device, but we will not be able to provide our Services. Please contact your carrier for more information.

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you.

We will communicate with you primarily in the form of push notifications. You can manage the frequency and/or opt out of receiving these communications by changing your settings on the App.

Anonymous Information

On the Sites, we may use Cookies to collect your click-stream data, and personalize your experience (including by tailoring content to you). We may use other Anonymous Information to analyze usage patterns so that we may enhance the Sites or Services, improve the content of our software, and customize the App, Sites or Services to you. We may also use your Anonymous Information to market our products and services to you on our Sites or through our Services, and to permit third parties to do the same.

If you are a Klutch User, we may associate your Anonymous Information with certain of your Personal Information, thus making it Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

How We Disclose Information

Personal Information

We may disclose certain Personal Information: • To third party vendors who help us provide the Services or the Sites; • To third parties to whom you ask us to send Personal Information (including other users that you communicate with as part of the Services and/or Third Party Services). For example, if you invite another user to an appointment, your Personal Information will be made available to them; • To a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, “Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy; • To a company that merges with us, acquires us, or purchases our assets (including in bankruptcy), in which case such company may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy; or • If we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce our Terms of Service; (b) comply with relevant laws or to respond to requests from law enforcement or other government officials relating to investigations or alleged illegal activity, in which case we can (and you authorize us to) disclose Personal Information without subpoenas or warrants served on us; or © protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and property of you or third parties.

In addition, we may display your name in the Services in response to inquiries from other users of the Services.

Anonymous Information

We reserve the right to disclose Anonymous Information publicly without restriction, including to third party vendors who may help us enhance or provide the Sites or Services or to third parties and to Klutch Users.

Controlling Your Information

You can review and/or change certain of your Personal Information by logging into the App and accessing your account. We may limit the Personal Information you can change on the Sites or App. You authorize us to use and disclose any new or modified information that you provide in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and you agree that we are under no obligation to delete or modify information that you have previously chosen to provide us.

Please know, however, that certain of your Personal Information we receive directly from Facebook or other similar third parties such as Twitter, LinkedIn, etc and you may not change this information through our Sites, App or Services. You must change this information through Facebook or another service, and we will then receive updated information from the third party services. If you update information we received from Facebook on our Sites or through our Services, we do not send it to Facebook, and you must separately update your Facebook page. Please remember, however, if we have already disclosed some of your Personal Information to third parties, we cannot access that Personal Information any longer and cannot force the deletion or modification of any such information by the parties to whom we have made those disclosures.

Upon your request, we will close your account. We may retain your Personal Information to comply with laws, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms of Use, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

Information Disclosed to Third Parties

This Privacy Policy addresses only our use and disclosure of information we collect from and/or about you on the Sites and Services. If you disclose information to others, the use and disclosure restrictions contained in this Privacy Policy will not apply to any third party. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable.

The Sites may contain content or links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. We have no control over, do not review and are not responsible for the privacy policies of or content displayed on such other websites. When you click on such a link, you will leave one of our Sites and go to another site. During this process, another entity may collect Personal Information or Anonymous Information from you. The Sites may also contain links to other websites controlled by us but which operates under different privacy policies. Please review the privacy policy of any new site you visit.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is subject to revision from time to time on a going-forward basis. We will post any revised version of the Privacy Policy on this page. If we make any material changes to it, we will also send you notice to the last email address you have provided to us. Continued use of our Services following notice of such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
