Privacy Policy


We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Even though we have taken significant steps to protect your Personal Information, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.

Children’s Personal Information

Krowd does not direct its Websites to children under the age of thirteen. We market family-related products or services for purchase by adults. Protecting the privacy of children is very important. If we obtain actual knowledge that a registered user is under eighteen, we will promptly delete information associated with such account. By using Krowd, you are representing that you are at least eighteen years old.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is subject to occasional revision at our discretion, and if we make any substantial changes in the way we use your Personal Information, we will post an alert on this page or may otherwise post an alert on the Krowd Website. If you object to any such changes, you must cease using Krowd. Continued use of Krowd following notice of any such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the Terms and Conditions of such changes.

Collection of Information

We collect the following types of information:

Personal Information that You Provide

In general, we collect Personal Information you submit to us voluntarily through Krowd. We also collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on the Krowd app or website. For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with your name, valid e-mail address and password of your choice. When you personalize your profile and use the features of Krowd, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your interaction with Krowd, such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. We collect information in the form of the content that you submit during your use of Krowd, such as photos, reviews, ratings and other information you choose to submit.

We may also collect information about you and your friends who use Krowd from any social network you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience. We may collect your user name or profile information that you have permitted to be displayed through Krowd in order to display you as a friend or in association with your profile and connections.

To enable payment for any services purchased through Krowd, (possible future applications (or apps) features) we collect and store billing and credit card information, which may include contact information such as your address and phone number.

If you choose to sign up to receive information from Krowd, we will collect your e-mail address(es) and other related information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including Personal Information, into any postings, comments or forums within the Krowd platforms.

Personal Information from Other Sources

We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources with which you have registered or interacted, companies who we have partnered with (Krowd code “partners”) or other third parties. We may associate this information with the other Personal Information we have collected about you.

E-mail and E-mail Addresses

If you send an e-mail to us, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and e-mail address when you send an e-mail notification to a friend through Krowd or the social network from which you have connected to Krowd (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content). Additionally, we may use your e-mail address to contact you on behalf of your friends (such as when someone sends you a personal message) or to send notifications from a social network or other Website with which you have registered to receive such notifications. You may indicate your preference to stop receiving further promotional communications as further detailed below.

Information Collected via Technology

As you use Krowd, certain information may be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers’ server logs, including your Internet protocol address, browser type and operating system. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (“URLs”) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on Krowd you clicked. An Internet protocol address, or “IP Address,” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a Website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your Web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with Krowd. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through Krowd your Web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of Krowd may not work properly, and you may not be able to receive our services. You can manage your Cookie preferences via your browser settings.

Mobile and Location Information

If you use mobile-enabled services provided by Krowd, such as any Krowd mobile application made available by us, we may receive information about your use of our services from your mobile device while you use our applications or services. This may also include information about your precise location if you have enabled location-based services on your mobile device. Certain applications or services may also require additional information collection, such as information to be sent when you are not logged into Krowd for alerts services, and the terms of such collection will be identified when you subscribe to or sign up for such services or applications.

Social Media Information

Certain information you post or provide through Krowd for public posting, such as your name, profile, comments, collections and reviews, may be shared with other users and posted on publicly available portions of Krowd including social media and other public fora in which you choose to participate. Please keep in mind that if you choose to disclose personal information, post comments or provide other information or content through Krowd, information may become publicly available and may be collected and used by others, including people outside the Krowd community. Please also be aware that if you choose to share or tweet deals through Krowd, they will become publicly available on the Facebook and Twitter Websites. It is up to you to make sure you are comfortable with the information you choose to provide us and the information you choose to publish. We will not have any obligations with respect to any information that you post to parts of Krowd available to others, and recommend that you use caution when giving out personal information to others through social media networks or otherwise.

You may choose to log in or access Krowd using the Facebook Connect feature or by downloading the Krowd mobile app through Facebook or another third party platform. By doing this, you are authorizing that third party platform to send us certain information from your account with them, and you authorize us to collect, store and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy any and all information available to us through the third party platform.

Feedback Information

If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we do not associate such feedback with your Personal Information. We will collect any information contained in such feedback and will treat the Personal Information in it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You agree that any such comments and any e-mail we receive becomes our property. We may use feedback for marketing purposes or to add to or modify our services without paying any royalties or other compensation to you.

We may provide your Personal Information to third-party service providers or affiliates who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of Krowd and to help us communicate with you.

This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of de-identified information (i.e., that is not connected with you as a user) in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose such information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our discretion.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of Krowd or Krowd’s assets, that acquirer may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure may be required: (a) to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties; or (c) in response to lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information

We offer you choices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When you receive promotional communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further promotional communications from us and you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the promotional e-mail you receive or by contacting us directly.

Despite your indicated e-mail marketing preferences, we may send you administrative e-mails regarding Krowd, including, for example, administrative and transactional confirmations, and notices of updates to our Privacy Policy if we choose to provide such notices to you in this manner.

If you use Krowd services provided through mobile devices, you may have additional choices, including over whether location services are enabled. Additionally, if you use other social media services in connection with Krowd, the providers of these services may provide you with additional choices concerning the types of data shared with Krowd.

Clicking on such advertisements will direct you to the Website of a third-party and the advertiser.
