Please manage your own disclosures of your postings and location on the Service, on an ongoing basis, accordingly.

Information We Collect
The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our customers.
User-Provided Information: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, mobile phone number and carrier, etc., if you register for an account with the Service. When using the Service, you may also provide certain other personal information and content, such as locations and activities, which will be publicly displayed to other Users and on third-party sites and services. To provide the mobile features of the Service, we derive location information from your wireless carrier, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device that you used to register with Skyfer. This location tracking of your mobile device occurs only when the Skyfer mobile application is actively open and running. We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, address, email address, phone number, IP address, use information and browser information.
Location Information: To provide the Skyfer Service, we collect, maintain, use, and display your personal data and the geographic location of your mobile device, known as "location information".
Status Availability: We collect information about your status availability to provide information to our Skyfer’s users about your project availability to estimate your response time to received message (“skyfe”).
Email Communications: If you have provided us with your email address, if we send you an email we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Skyfer if your computer supports this type of program. Skyfer uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If Skyfer asks you for your email address, and if you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference during the registration process, by making a modification on your account settings page.
Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you register with or view our site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service. The Service is primarily designed to help you share information, including your location, with others. This not only includes the information that you provide directly to Skyfer, but also information that you broadcast to third party services using the Service.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service (including your location information and User Content) becomes available to the public unless you restrict access to that information by making changes in the Settings of you account profile . Skyfer is not responsible for the personally identifiable, profile, or location information that you choose to disclose publicly on the Service. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.
Your username, profile picture thumbnail and postings, including location data, date and time will be available in search results across the Service network and may be made available to third-party search engines. Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Service, that information may be available to the wider Skyfer community or may be published on the Skyfer website, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines. Individuals reading this information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in any postings, location or other content that you disclose on the Service.
How We Share Your Information
Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We may share your Personal Information only as described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: Skyfer may share your personally identifiable information with third parties solely for the purpose of providing services to you. In certain situations, these third-party businesses sell items or provide promotions to you through the Skyfer Service. In other situations, Skyfer provides services, or sells products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your use of the Service or other transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such use or transactions with that affiliated business, if you have agreed to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Skyfer (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers). The Skyfer Service may offer promotions on behalf of other businesses, but we do not provide the other business your name and address. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with such a third party, please do not use the Service.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, agents for Skyfer do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.
User profiles: User profile information including user name, Twitter account name, Facebook account name, and other information you enter may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Service. Users’ email addresses will not be directly revealed to other users within the Service, except when the user chooses to email them from within the Service.
Communication in response to User Submissions: As part of the Service, you will receive from Company email and other communication relating to your postings and use of the Service. You acknowledge and agree that by posting, Skyfer may send you email and other communication that it determines in its sole discretion relate to your posts. The Company also will use your email to send you updates on the Service or other user activities on the Service, and you can opt out of all of these communications on your Settings page.
Invitations: When you invite someone to join the Skyfer community, please be aware that we will disclose your real name, as an invitation containing your real name, Twitter username or other identifying information will be sent to the email address, Twitter account, Facebook account or other social service account of the person you wish to invite. This information is necessary to make sure your invitee knows who has contacted them. To build a community based on trust and empathy, we feel this disclosure is necessary.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Skyfer, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Skyfer goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Skyfer may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Skyfer services.
How We Protect Your Information
Skyfer endeavors to protect user information to ensure that user account information is kept private. Skyfer uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. Skyfer cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Skyfer and you do so at your own risk. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. Once we receive your transmission of information, Skyfer 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.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as authorizing your account credentials and/or password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Skyfer, at all times. Because Skyfer accounts are tied to other services such as Twitter and Facebook and use the same username and password protections of those services, your Skyfer account could be affected by a disclosure of your password to these other services. Similarly, should your account at Skyfer be affected by a disclosure of your password, accidental or otherwise, then your accounts at these other services would also be compromised.
Compromise of Personal Information
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Service, in which case Skyfer may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time by logging in to your account. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You can review and correct the information about you that Skyfer keeps on file by contacting us directly at email@example.com.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Skyfer does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register to use the Service. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Skyfer. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
