Avafone Privacy Policy


Avafone ("Avafone" or "we" or "us" or "our" or other similar pronouns) takes your privacy matters very seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy ("Policy"). This Policy details how we receive, collect and use information in connection with our website located at Avafone.com (the "Site"), the Avafone software ("Avafone App"), and other products and services provided on the Avafone.com website (all of the foregoing, collectively, the "Service").

By visiting this Site or using the Service, you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Policy, as such Policy may be amended from time to time. Each time you visit the Site or use the Service, you agree and expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide as described in this Policy.

Collection and Use of Information
When you install the Avafone App or register on the Site, you will be asked to provide us with your phone number, name and a Email and to allow us access to your mobile device's address book.
A copy of the phone numbers in your address book (but not emails, notes or any other Personal Information in your address book) will be stored on our servers and will only be used to:

(a) notify you when your contacts become active on Avafone,

(b) indicate which of your contacts is already a Avafone user,

(c) sync your contacts with Avafone running on Windows, Android tablets and iPads.

The copy of your address book (phones) is stored on a live database. This database does not have a "historical backup". If you delete the address book from our servers (more about this below), it will be deleted instantly and permanently.

Your phone number will be used for identification purposes as your Avafone user ID.

Since Avafone users may add your Avafone number to their address book and see that you registered to Avafone, we do not consider the fact that your Avafone number exists on Avafone as private information.
Security
We use reasonable precautions to keep the personal information you disclose both in your browsing and your purchases and to never release this information to third parties. Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only authorized employees have access to this information. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you make an order on this website, we will need to use, but not store, certain of the information provided by you in order to process your order. This will include details related to your payment. We do not store private transaction details such as credit card information.

We may use some data collected to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities and violations of our Terms and Conditions.
Offers and Promotions
We will use the data you provide us to notify you of offers or products that may be of interest to you, but at no time will we provide your data to third parties for their own direct marketing activities.

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information, for example IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information in the remote situations of fraud investigation.
