Types of Information Collected

Elify collects certain Personal Information from you when you register for and use our Services. We will retain your Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information for as long as necessary to provide our Services and/or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements.

 

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information is any information that can be used to identify you personally, and includes but is not limited to your name, address, phone number, and email address. Furthermore, Elify will receive certain credit card, or other payment information from you.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

This is generalized information and cannot be used to easily identify you personally. When you use our Services we collect certain Non-Personal Information.  Such information includes but is not limited to your IP address, your ISP, your browser type, your operating system, your clickstream patterns, the URL of the most recent website you visited before coming to our websites, the amount of time you spend in Elify using Services, and the pages you viewed while on our sites or using Services.

When you use the Elify mobile apps, we may collect certain information in addition to information described and requested elsewhere in this Policy. For example, we may collect information about the type of device and operating system you use. We may ask you if you want to receive push notifications about activity in your account. If you have opted in to these notifications and no longer want to receive them, you may opt out by turning off the push notifications through your operating system. We may use mobile analytics software to better understand how people use our application. We may collect information about how often you use the application and other performance data.

IF USER DOES NOT COMPLY, IMMEDIATE CANCELLATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION MAY RESULT AND NO REFUND(S) WILL BE OFFERED OR OBLIGATED.

 

Cookies and tracking

We may use various technologies to collect and store information when you use our Services, and this may include using cookies and similar tracking technologies on our Website, such as pixels and web beacons, to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, serve targeted marketing, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. We may partner with third parties to manage and serve our advertising on other sites. Our third party partners may use cookies or similar tracking technologies in order to provide you advertising or other content based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising click http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/ (or if you are located in the European Union click http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/).

For more information about our use of cookies and other tracking technologies, as well as how to opt out of the use of cookies, please refer to “The Use of Cookie” Section below.  

 

Web beacons

We and our third party partners use web beacons on our Websites and in our emails. When we send emails to Members, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of Members. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for you. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create reports about how your email campaign performed and what actions your Subscribers took. Reports are also available to us when we send email to you, so we may collect and review that information.

 

Information from other sources

From time to time we may obtain information about you or your Subscribers from third party sources, such as public databases, social media platforms, third party data providers and our joint marketing partners. We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally permitted or required to disclose such information to us. Examples of the information we may receive from other sources include: demographic information, device information (such as IP addresses), location, and online behavioral data (such as information about your use of social media websites, page view information and search results and links). We use this information, alone or in combination with other information (including Personal Information) we collect, to enhance our ability to provide relevant marketing and content to you and to develop and provide you with more relevant products features, and services. For example, we use this information to develop Social Profiles, a tool that helps you learn about your Subscribers and allows you to send them more relevant content.

 

Methods of Collection

Elify collects your Personal Information in several different ways. First, we collect information about you when you provide it to us; for example when registering for Services, when you set up an Elify profile, or when you communicate with us directly via, phone, e-mail or our websites. Information about your Contacts is collected when you create a new Contact within the Services provided. We also employ commonly used analytic and reporting software technologies to collect certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information.


 

Use of Personal Information

 

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information is ONLY used for Elify’s own internal purposes including but not limited to; providing the Services to you, offering you support with customer service issues, and maintaining and improving the Services. The information may include payment and billing information to collect the Service Fee(s) as applicable.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Elify uses Non-Personally Identifiable Information to track and analyze the usage and performance of its Services and websites. Elify uses this information internally to assist in determining changes and/or upgrades to the Services, whether to add or discontinue specific Services, and for internal market analysis purposes.

 

Disclosure of Personal Information

In general, we do not disclose Personal Information to third parties without your prior written consent. However, we reserve the right to do so in certain limited situations as identified below:

 

1) Disclosure to Third Party Service Providers

In the course of providing Services to you, we may at our option use third party service providers to provide some or all of the Services. An example of this would be the use of third party payment processing companies to process payments made by you for any Subscription based Services or Service fee. We make all commercially reasonable efforts to make sure these third party vendors only use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to provide the Services to you. However, we cannot guarantee that a third party vendor will not disclose your Personal Information.

 

2) Disclosure to Other Third Parties

We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information to protect or enforce Elify’s rights, or the rights of a third party, to prevent an emergency, or as may be required by law, including but not limited to, complying with subpoenas or court orders.

 

3) Successors in Interest

We may also disclose your Personal Information to any successor in interest to our company, including, but not limited to any third party company that may acquire or merge with Elify. In the event of a merger or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Elify, your Personal Information will most likely be part of the transaction. If such a transaction happens, we will notify you by the methods listed in the Terms of Service concerning the transaction and the transfer of your Personal Information.

 

4) Disclosure of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may disclose any Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect to our strategic business partners, potential business partners, vendors, investors, advisors and customers. This information is usually disclosed in terms of aggregate numbers. Since the information cannot be traced back to you directly, you may not “opt out” of our use of such Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

 

Security of Personal Information

We employ commercially reasonable technology and systems to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, sensitive information is transmitted to us in an encrypted format using secure socket layer technology. HOWEVER, NO PROTECTION METHODS ARE 100% SECURE, AND THEREFORE WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE 100% SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. We are not responsible for any disclosure of Personal Information due to any errors in transmission of your information, or any unauthorized third party access or any other acts by third parties, or any acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.

 

In the event a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you or people in your Contacts, Elify will notify you as soon as reasonably possible and later report the action we took in response.

 

Public and Shared Nature of Certain Content

The Services provided by Elify now or in the future may be accessible by the public. Examples of publicly accessible information include, but are not limited to Member’s public user profile, any information you make publicly available for other Members to discover, any information you directly share with other Members. We are not responsible for third parties uses of any Personal Information contained in these public disclosures.

 

The Use of Cookies

Elify uses “cookies” (small files placed on your hard drive) for several different purposes. We use cookies to help identify you and reduce the number of times you need to sign-in to Services, and to personalize and track your use of Services. Most cookies are session cookies, meaning they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.

You may encounter cookies from third parties on Elify that we do not control; please consult the privacy policy for each third party for more information on their particular usage of cookies. You can read more about our Cookie policy by referring to the “Cookies & Tracking” Section above.
