Noknok Inc. ("Noknok") recognizes that its users, visitors, customers, want to receive information regarding Noknok's privacy. Noknok provides this Privacy Policy to help you make an informed decision about whether to use or continue using any of the Noknok Services, Noknok Sites and Noknok software.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Noknok Terms of Service. Your use of the Noknok Services, Noknok Site and Noknok software and any personal information you provide on the Noknok Site, Noknok Services or via Noknok software remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any of the provisions as set hereunder in this Privacy Policy, you have no right to access and use the

Noknok Site and Noknok Services. This Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service may be updated from time to time and therefore we ask you to check back periodically to read the most updated Privacy Policy. Your continued access or use of the Noknok Site and/or Noknok Services shall be deemed to be your continued acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy, as amended. Terms that are capitalized in this Privacy Policy and not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Terms of Service.
Please note that any information or other content posted at the direction or discretion of Users onto the Noknok Site or using the Noknok Services becomes published content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.
The Information Noknok Collects

Personal Information: During your access and/or use of the Noknok Site and Noknon Services, we may collect, save or otherwise keep in our possession certain information that identifies you personally, such as your phone number and phone book, age, sex or profile picture (for users accessing through Facebook in accordance with the terms set forth in our Terms of Service). We may collect such information through your access or use of the Noknok Site and Noknok Services or from information that is entered into our system by any other User uploading, sharing or otherwise making such information available.
Non-Personal Information: We may also collect, save or otherwise keep in our possession information that does not identify you personally, such as your history of the access and use of Noknok Site and Noknok Services. We refer to information that does not identify you personally as "Non-Personal Information".

Cookies Information: When you use Noknok Services or visit the Noknok Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Noknok uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Noknok Site and Noknok Services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Log File Information: When you use the Noknok Services or Noknok Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. When you use the Noknok software, our servers automatically record certain information that our Noknok software sends whenever you update or request any status information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, contacts list, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information.


Use of Information

If you submit Personal Information to us through the Noknok Services provided or offered through the Noknok Site or any other site, application, product or service offered by Noknok (Collectively, the "Noknok Services"), the Noknok Site or Noknok software, then we use your Personal Information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Noknok Services, Noknok Site or Noknok software.

Any Personal Information or status content that you voluntarily disclose becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your name, phone no., and your picture is displayed to other Users through the Noknok Services, Noknok Site or Noknok software.
Your name (as it is saved in other people's address book) is displayed to other Users through the Noknok Services or Noknok software and other Users can contact you through your preferred communication method. Any status content that you submit to the Noknok Sites may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.

We do not use your phone number or email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your phone number or email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Noknok Site or Noknok Service changes or for customer service purposes).

We use both your Personally Information and certain Non-Personal Information (such as anonymous User usage data, contact list, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Noknok Services, Noknok Site and Noknok software to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
We use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Noknok Services or Noknok software; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

Discloses Information

Other users of Noknok Services and Noknok software may see your status information in a way that is consistent with the use of the Noknok site. For example, a status of "I'm not available, please SMS me instead" set by phone number +92 (111) 222-3333 will be available to every user of Noknok Services or Noknok software who knows that phone number. In other words: If another User has your phone number stored in his address book, he will be able to view your status information.

We do not share your Personal Information (such as name or phone number or email address or picture) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may share Non-Personal Information (such as anonymous

User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain groups, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Noknok Site.

We may release Personal Information and/or Non-Personal Information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws, or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant. Noknok also reserves the right to disclose Personal Information and/or Non-Personally Information that Noknok believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of our Noknok Site, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Noknok, our Users or others.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit Personal Information through the Noknok Site or to Noknok software, in which case Noknok may not be able to provide certain services to you.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as SMS authentication in certain cases) to verify your identity before granting you status update access.
Please contact Noknok via email
feedback@noknokapp.com or available web forms with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your Personal Information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices. 

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

Noknok is currently ad-free, but in the future we may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Noknok Site or Noknok software. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or to Noknok software, the advertisements and links that appear on the Noknok Site or in Noknok software. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.
Noknok does not provide any Personal Information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Noknok to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed pieces of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Noknok Site or Noknok Services, such as the number of times you set a status to determine which ads to deliver to you.

Commitment to Data Security

Noknok uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Noknok and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Noknok makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If Noknok learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Noknok may post a notice on the Noknok Site if a security breach occurs.

Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. We operate our Noknok Site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We never knowingly, directly or indirectly, collect or maintain Personal Information at or on our Noknok Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Noknok Site is directed at or structured to attract anyone under 13. Visitors younger than 13 years of age may NOT use the Services and must LEAVE immediately.

Business Transitions

In the event that Noknok is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.

You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc. or "load testers", that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the Noknok servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a Noknok application, and you are forbidden from ripping the content unless specifically allowed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Noknok grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the Noknok Site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. Noknok reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

We have to disallow using request modification tools such as fiddler or whisker, or the like or any other such tools activities that are meant to explore or harm, penetrate or test the Noknok Site. You must secure our permission before you measure, test, health check or otherwise monitor any network equipment, servers or assets hosted on our domain.

    3. TERMINATION FOR BREACH: Noknok may suspend, disable, or delete your User Account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any Content you submitted if Noknok determines that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage Noknok's reputation and goodwill. If Noknok deletes your User Account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for the Noknok Services. Noknok may block your phone number and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, if you become aware of any violation to other Users undertakings and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service you are encouraged to report it to Noknok.

    4.

Without derogating from the above, Noknok expressly disclaims, and you expressly release Noknok from any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to: (i) any inaccuracy, untimeliness or incompleteness of a User’s representations regarding or compliance with the Users undertakings and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service; and (ii) misstatements and/or misrepresentations made by any User.

  3. Intellectual Property Rights

The design of the Noknok Services along with Noknok created text, scripts, graphics, interactive features and the like ("Noknok Client") and Patents (applications and provisionals), the trademarks, service marks and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to Noknok, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under Israeli and foreign laws and international conventions.

You understand that whether or not such User photos and/or videos and/or Status Submissions are published, Noknok does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.

    2. You shall be solely responsible for your own User photos and/or videos and/or Status Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. It is hereby clarified that Noknok is not acting as a repository of data, User submitted photos and/or videos and/or User Status Submissions do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of Noknok, and Noknok makes no guarantees as to the validity, accuracy or legal status of any photos and/or videos and/or User Status Submissions. In connection with User photos and/or videos and/or User Status Submissions, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that: (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize Noknok to use all patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights or other proprietary rights in and to any and all User photos and/or videos and/or User Status Submissions to enable inclusion and use of the User Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service; and (ii) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person in the User Status Submission to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person to enable inclusion and use of the User Status Submissions in the manner contemplated by the Service and these Terms of Service. To be clear: you retain all of your ownership rights in your User Status Submissions, but you have to have the rights in the first place. However, by submitting the User Status Submissions to Noknok, you hereby grant Noknok a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Status Submissions in connection with the Noknok Service and Noknok's (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Noknok Services (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each subscriber to your status on the Noknok Services a non-exclusive license to access your User Status Submissions through the Noknok Services, Email, and mobile phone and to display parts of User Status Submissions as permitted through the functionality of the Noknok Service and under these Terms of Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a User Status Submission from the Noknok Service.

    3. In connection with User Status Submissions and Content, you further agree that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Noknok all of the license rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Noknok or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business; (v) impersonate another person; (vi) send or store material containing software viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents or programs; (vii) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Noknok Services or the data contained therein; or (viii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Noknok Site or Noknok Services or its related systems or networks.

Noknok reserves the right to remove Content and User Status Submissions without prior notice. Noknok may also terminate a User's access to its Noknok Site and Noknok Services, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer, or for any or no reason, including being annoying. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had a User Status Submission or Content removed from the Noknok Site more than twice. An annoying person is anyone who is (capriciously or not) determined to be annoying by authorized Noknok employees, agents, subagents, superagents or superheros. Noknok also reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Status Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to excessive length or limited interest. Noknok may remove such User Status Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.

You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User photos and/or videos and/or Status Submissions and/or Content and/or messages that are inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Noknok with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold Noknok, its affiliates, and/or licensors, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law regarding all matters related to your use of the Noknok Site and Noknok Services.

    6. Noknok permits you to link to materials on the Noknok Site and/or Noknok Services for personal, non-commercial purposes only. Commercial versions are available under separate licensing and terms. Noknok reserves the right to discontinue any aspect of the Noknok Site and Noknok Service at any time.

  2. Noknok reserves the right to remove, suspend access to or permanently delete any User Status Submissions in accordance with its sole discretion without prior notice, including without limitation any User Status Submissions that violates the warranties set forth above or Noknok's business interests, and you shall have no right or claim in respect of any such decisions and actions. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, it is hereby clarified that under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA"), it is our policy to respond expeditiously to copyright owners who believe material appearing on the Noknok Site infringes their rights. If you believe that something appearing on the Noknok Site infringes your copyright, you may send us a notice requesting that it be removed, or access to it blocked. If you believe that such a notice has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA lets you send us a counter-notice. It is Noknok’s policy to delete the User Account of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances, taking all facts and circumstances into account. Notices and counter-notices must meet the DMCA’s requirements. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Be aware that there can be substantial penalties for false claims. Send notices and counter-notices to our copyright agent: feedback@noknokapp.com.
