Privacy Policy

Information Collection and Use

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a CityRoamer account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results if enabled public. Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration. CityRoamer and all associated apps, products and services use Google Maps API(s), and you should therefore review the Google Privacy Policy.

Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide information to customize your account, such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS messages. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from CityRoamer. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your CityRoamer account, including through third-party services and client applications. Your privacy settings control whether others can find you. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your CityRoamer account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between CityRoamer and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting and helps us improve the Services. Providing additional information described in this section is entirely optional.

Location Information: You may choose to publish your location in the CityRoamer communication messaging system and in your CityRoamer profile. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as finding friends nearby, broadcasting to friends and finding events and markers based on your search criteria with calculated proximities to you.

Links: CityRoamer may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant information to benefit you, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services. We require cookies for most of our Services, however without a user account we store very limited and minimal information identifying your choice of city and other settings such as your chosen or defaulted time zone. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. CityRoamer may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, most Services may not function properly if you disable cookies. Your sensitive user account cookies and preferences are encrypted and transmitted securely over the https protocol.

Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your CityRoamer account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a CityRoamer button or widget. CityRoamer uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customize, and improve them. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.
