discover, develop and maintain business relationships, create business opportunities, share ideas
and knowledge. By joining DoveCard App, you voluntarily and willingly provide DoveCard App Team,

We collect your personal information in the following ways:
In order to become a User, you must provide us the following information to create an
account: first name, email address. Without this minimal amount of information, you cannot create a
DoveCard App account. DoveCard App requests other information from you during the registration
process, (e.g., gender, location, etc.) that DoveCard App uses to provide better, more customized
services such as language-specific profile pages and updates, better ads, and more valuable business
opportunities. You acknowledge that this information is personal to you, and by creating an account
on DoveCard App, you allow others, including DoveCard App, to identify you and to allow DoveCard App
to use your information in accordance with our User Agreement.

Providing additional information about yourself beyond what is minimally

registration or in the Profile section may be used by DoveCard App as described in the User

benefit of being a DoveCard App User.
C. Contacts Information
You may use the DoveCard App Services to send invitations either to their mobile phone
number or email addresses of people you know. The names and mobile phone number, email addresses of
people whom you invite will be used to send your invitations and reminders as well as to allow
DoveCard App to help expand your network. Please note that when you send an invitation to connect to
another User, that User will have access to your email address because it is displayed in the
invitation. Your DoveCard App connections will also have access to your email address. You may also
choose to manually enter or upload data about your contacts to the “BizCard” section of your account
on DoveCard App. Information entered into connections is only viewable by you. By providing email
addresses or other information of non-Users to DoveCard App, you represent that you have authority
to do so. All information that you enter or upload about your contacts is covered by the User

F. Using Third Party Services and Visiting Third Party Sites
We receive information when you use your DoveCard App account to log in or authenticate
to a third-party website or application. Also, if you are logged into DoveCard App and visit a third
party site that embeds DoveCard App business plugins, DoveCard App will receive information that
those pages have loaded in app. DoveCard App will use this information to personalize the DoveCard
App-provided functionality, including providing you insights from your DoveCard App network,
allowing you to share information with your network, enabling you to use DoveCard App functionality

App and third-party advertising to Users both on and off the DoveCard App site. A cookie is a tiny
data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us to recognize
you as a User when you return to the DoveCard App using the same device. You can remove or block
cookies, but in some cases doing so may impact your ability to use DoveCard App. One type of cookie,
known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your DoveCard App account. The next
time you visit the DoveCard App, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing
User so you will not need to log in before using the Services. Another type of cookie, called a
“session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the DoveCard App. Session cookies expire
after a short time or when you close your app. Other technology, can be used to place the functional
equivalent of a cookie on device. You can control flash “local stored objects” or “flash cookies”
using the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at www.macromedia.com. DoveCard App may use
cookie-equivalent technology for the limited purpose of enhancing the security of DoveCard App's
services. We do not use flash cookies for advertising purposes.
In the course of serving advertisements or optimizing the Services to our Users, we may
allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your app. Any information
provided to third parties through cookies will not be personally identifiable but may provide
general segment information (e.g., your industry or geography, career field, or information about
your professional or educational background) for the enhancement of your user experience by
providing more relevant advertising. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you
can reset your app to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. DoveCard App
does not store unencrypted personally identifiable information in the cookies.
To support the Services we provide, as well as provide a more relevant and useful
experience for our Users, we target and serve ads on and off the site using ad networks. Ad networks
include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad exchanges, ad technology vendors and research
We target ads to Users based on general profile categories or on non-personally
identifiable information inferred from a User’s profile (e.g. current company, job function, etc.)
in addition to a User’s use of DoveCard App or their clicking on DoveCard App ad inventory. DoveCard
App does not provide personally identifiable information to any third party ad network.
I. Log Files, IP Addresses and Information About Your Mobile Device
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the DoveCard App, we
automatically receive your mobile device (including your UDID) and mobile operating system, as well
as your mobile carrier. DoveCard App may also receive location data passed to it from third-party
services or GPS-enabled devices that you have enabled. Also, as described above in Sections 1.E. and

with third parties without your permission, except as described in Section 2.L (“Compliance with
Legal Process”), below.

that other Users have copied, may also remain visible even if you request its deletion.
K. Data Retention
DoveCard App will retain your information for so long as your account is active or as
needed to provide you services, except in the case of our business plugin impression data, which we
de-identify after 12 months. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our
legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce this Agreement.

your nationality, ethnic origin, gender, age, and other aspects of your life. By providing

your DoveCard App profile, you are expressly and voluntarily accepting the terms and conditions of
information about you. Supplying information to DoveCard App, including any information deemed

our partners, unless you have opted out of receiving promotional information.
Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from DoveCard App.

communications subscription or otherwise have access, you understand you will pay any service fees
associated with your receipt of messages on your mobile device (including text messaging
C. User Communications
Many communications you initiate through DoveCard App (e.g., an invitation sent to a
non-User) will list your name in the header of the message. Messages you initiate may also provide
aggregate information about your network (for instance how many people are in your network), but
will not list the people to whom you are directly connected. Your contact information will only be
shared with another User if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with
D. Customized Content

combined services) to customize your experience on our app. For example, when you login to your
account, we may display the names of new Users who have recently joined your network or recent
status updates from your connections.
E. Sharing Information with Third Parties
DoveCard App takes the privacy of our Users very seriously, and we do not sell, rent, or
otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties, except as described in
this policy. We will also not share other personal information not published to your profile or
generated through engagement with other DoveCard App services without your explicit consent or to
carry out your instructions (for example, to process payment information) unless, disclosure is
reasonably necessary in our opinion to: (1) comply with legal process, including, but not limited
to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this
Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties, whether or not the
third party is a User, individual, or government agency; (4) respond to customer service inquiries;
or (5) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of DoveCard App, our Users, or the
Content distributed through DoveCard App’s sharing features and third party integrations
may result in displaying some of your information outside of DoveCard App.
We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of the Services to third
parties for purposes that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to
prospective advertisers on DoveCard App.
F. Developers Using DoveCard App Platform Services
We collaborate with and allow third parties to use DoveCard App’s developer platform to
offer services and functionality in conjunction with and outside of DoveCard App. These third
parties are either partners (“DoveCard App Partners”) with whom we have negotiated an agreement to
provide services (“Combined Services”). Both the negotiated agreements and our API terms and
conditions contain restrictions on access, storage, and use of your information.
If you choose to use Combined Services or a Platform Application, you may be asked to
Platform Developer, which have not necessarily been reviewed or approved by DoveCard App. It is your
choice whether or not to make use of Combined Services or Platform Applications and whether to
proceed under any third party terms. Should you do so, the third party's terms, and not this policy,
will govern how they handle information you provide to them directly or through your DoveCard App
Also, despite our agreements and technical steps taken to restrict access to and avoid
possible misuse of information, we may not screen or audit all Combined Services or Platform
Applications. We also cannot guarantee that any DoveCard App Partner or Platform Developer will
abide by our agreement. You agree that your use of Combined Services or Platform Applications is on
an “as is” basis and without any warranty.
If you use any Combined Service or Platform Application, the DoveCard App Partner or
Platform Developer may access and share certain information about you, such as non-public profile
information and information visible only to your connections. This includes information about your
connections by virtue of you being connected to others. However, unless you have used a Combined
Service or Platform Application, it can only access the information about you that is otherwise
visible to other DoveCard App Users.
G. Polls and Surveys
Polls and Surveys may be conducted by DoveCard App, DoveCard App Users, or third
parties. As a User, you may be invited to participate in polls and surveys from the DoveCard App.
Your selection may be random, or it may be based on your non-personally identifiable information,
such as job title, geography, company size and/or industry. Whether or not you decide to participate
in a poll or survey is completely up to you.
After you complete a poll, you will be given access to the aggregate responses of the
poll on a results page. Some third parties may target advertisements to you on the results page
based on your answers in the poll. Additionally, DoveCard App or third parties may follow up with
you via messages regarding your participation unless you have opted out of receiving messages.
We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or
polls. If the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide
personally identifiable information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will
only be used for the purpose of delivering incentives and/or verifying your contact information. It
is up to you whether you provide this information, or whether you desire to take advantage of an
We will not disclose any personally identifiable information to any third parties in
connection with the conduct of any polls or surveys. Your consent to use any personally identifiable
information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the
party conducting it.

DoveCard App search also allows Users to find companies, and contributions to the community aspects
of the DoveCard App Services, such as Groups and Discussion that will help Users more effectively
use DoveCard App and expand their network. We use information from User profiles and contributions
to Groups, Company Profiles, and Discussions to inform and refine our search service.
I. Discussions, Groups, and Other Services
If you post on the Feed section of DoveCard App and participate in DoveCard App Groups
and other services, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you choose to
provide there can be read, collected, or used by other Users of these forums, as well as Platform
Developers and other third parties, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. DoveCard App
is not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these forums. Also, some content in
DoveCard App Groups may be public and searchable on the Internet if the Group owner has opened or
shared the group for public discussions. You can delete your posts on Feed. However, please note
that ideas you post and information you share may be seen and used by other Users, and DoveCard App
cannot guarantee that other Users have not made copies of or used the ideas and information that you
share with others on DoveCard App.

conversations, established or added content to your profile, etc., and will only be displayed to
your DoveCard App network.
L. Compliance with Legal Process
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information
and/or information about your activities as a DoveCard App User when required by subpoena or other
legal process, or if DoveCard App has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (1)
investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist
government enforcement agencies; (2) to enforce the User Agreement, to investigate and defend
ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, or to protect the security or integrity of

residual information about you in its backup and/or archival copies of its database.
B. Default Settings
Because the mission of DoveCard App is to serve the world’s business people to enable
them to facilitate their jobs, we have established what we believe to be reasonable default settings
that we have found most professionals desire. Because Users may use and interact with DoveCard App
in a variety of ways, and because those uses may change over time, we designed our settings to
provide our users granular control over the information they share. We encourage our Users to review
their account settings and adjust them in accordance with their preferences.
DoveCard App accounts are also defaulted to allow Users to be contacted to participate
in polls, surveys, and partner advertising.

account, we will remove your name and other personally identifiable information. If you close your

information without liability. However, we may retain certain data contributed by you if DoveCard
App believes it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business
purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally identifiable data, account recovery, or if
required by law. DoveCard App may also retain and use your information if necessary to provide the
Services to other Users. Similarly, other information you have shared with others, or that other
Users have copied, may also remain visible. DoveCard App disclaims any liability in relation to the
deletion or retention (subject to the terms herein) of information or any obligation not to delete
the information. DoveCard App does not control when search engines update their cache, which may
