Mynde.Me cares about your privacy and is committed to protecting it. This summary of our privacy statement applies to the Mynde.Me website and community forums.
How We Collect and Use Information
Information You Provide Us Directly
We ask for certain information such as your username, name, birthdate, and e-mail address when you register for a Mynde.me account, or if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the Website, and may collect information you provide in User Content you post to the Website. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Website. Your username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name, may be published in the community forums. Once published your username and/or real name may not be able to be removed.
Information We May Receive From Third Parties
We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our websites or Website through a third-party connection or log-in, for example, through Facebook Connect, by “following,” “liking,” linking your account to the Mynde.me Website, etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its website to Mynde.me. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account, an access token necessary to access that website, any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that website. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and websites before linking or connecting them to the Mynde.me Website. You may also unlink your third party account from the Website by adjusting your settings on the third party website.
Inviting A Friend To Use Mynde.Me
Mynde.me may, in its sole discretion, develop a feature that allows you to invite third parties to the Website. If you choose to invite a third party to the Website through our “Invite friends” feature, you may directly choose a friend to invite through your mobile device’s native contact list – but we do not require that you import your contacts list to the Website, and we do not retain the information contained in your contacts list. You understand that by inviting a friend to Mynde.me through the “Invite friends” feature, you are directly sending a text or email from your personal accounts and that we are not storing your contact list. Since this invitation is coming directly from your email or phone, we do not have access to or control this communication.
Finding Your Friends On The Website
Mynde.me may, in its sole discretion, develop a feature that allows you to locate your friends with Mynde.me accounts through a “Find friends” feature. The “Find friends” feature allows you to choose to locate friends either through (i) your contact list, (ii) social media sites (such as Twitter or Facebook) or (iii) through a search of names and usernames on Mynde.me. If you choose to find your friends through your contact list, then you agree to provide Mynde.me access to your contact list such that we can perform the search necessary to determine whether or not someone associated with the information you provide is using Mynde.me. If you choose to find your friends through social media sites, then you understand that the information these sites provide to use to conduct this type of search is governed by their privacy policies and your account settings on those sites. If you choose to find your friends through a search of names or usernames, then simply type a name to search and see if that name or username appears on our Website. Note that we do not retain any information contained in your contacts list, or information from social media sites about your contacts, and we do not use such information for any purpose other than to help you find your friends on Mynde.me.
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and websites, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Website. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Website. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
