Our Approach to Privacy
Rigil Corporation (“Rigil”), provider of the Meeting ExpectationsTM application, considers itself a steward of the information it collects, maintains and utilizes. Our responsibility is to ensure the appropriate access, addition and use of information submitted to Meeting Expectations by our users. Underlying our policies is Rigil’s commitment to provide users transparency and education on the collection and use of information. To better protect your rights we have provided this Privacy Statement to explain our privacy practices.
A. Applicability and Coverage
This privacy statement covers the Meeting Expectations application and the website http://me.rigil.com (the “App”), certain functionalities of the App, and the various services provided including our short message system ("SMS") and our mobile and desktop applications (collectively the "Services").
B. Questions or Concerns
If users have questions or concerns regarding this statement contact the Meeting Expectations help desk by sending an email to email@example.com.
C. What Information Do We Collect regarding Your Profile and Online/Mobile Activities?
We collect personally identifiable information as required to offer the Services and as voluntarily provided by you in the course of correspondence or registration, and as otherwise identified below. In and through the App, we collect certain information which cannot be used to personally identify any user, such as anonymous, aggregate or statistical data.
In order to use some Services, you may be required to complete an applicable registration form accessible through the App. All persons who register are referred to as "Registered Users." Some Services may not require registration. We collect and maintain a record of all data provided through such registration forms. For example, individual users who desire to subscribe to the Services must provide certain contact information. The contact information may include, but is not limited to, identification data (e.g., name, address, telephone numbers, email address, and facsimile address). For some Services, each Registered User may be provided a unique username (the "username") and a password that enables access to the Service. We may track the use of those usernames and passwords in order to collect and maintain records of individual transactions conducted through the Services by Registered Users, and those records may be associated with each Registered User's individual account profile within the Company system.
As a Registered User you can create a profile (the "Profile") which will reflect the information you decide to make available to other Meeting Expectations users. This information may include your username, full name, address, telephone numbers, and other information you may decide to share. Please be aware that all information you provide in your Profile, except your password and contact preferences will be available to every person with whom you decide to connect via the Services and certain fields are used in our search functionality. Your Profile may be searchable but certain information is only available to individuals you personally elect to share your Profile. We also store your Profiles centrally on a server as well as spread to any other devices and systems you may opt-in to. In the event you choose to make your Profile available, this information will only be transmitted in an encrypted format. You control your Profile and can view, correct, complete or remove information.
We collect additional information through the App and the Services that is not associated with any online account or registration information, and that cannot be used to personally identify you (all such information is "Non-Personal Data," in contrast to collected information described above, which is, "Personal Information"). Non-Personal Data ordinarily includes aggregate, summary, or other anonymous data, and may include, by way of example, statistics regarding popularity of particular pages within the App, or information regarding types of Internet browsers used by Registered Users. We also collect information about your device, should you use the Services through one of our smartphone applications, including the manufacturer of your device, the phone model, the operating system used, the version of the application, the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number, and, if permitted by the user, geo-location information. We also collect Non-Personal Data from your mobile device such as screen usage data in aggregated form to improve our applications and Services.
"Cookies" are small files placed on a user's computer by a website in order to facilitate use of that website. For example, a cookie may contain information about a user's preferences, so that the website automatically complies with those preferences whenever the user visits that website. When using the Service, we may create "cookies" on your computer for purposes of facilitating and maintaining your current user session, and may collect Personal Information using those cookies in order to enable us to identify you in connection with the Services and to track use of the Services for purposes consistent with this policy.
The App is not intended for or directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 18, and no part of our App or Services is designed to attract people under 18.
D. How We Use the Information
First and foremost, Meeting Expectations does not sell ANY user information to marketers. We use the information collected from the App and Services in several ways, as outlined below. For example, we use Personal Information as needed to provide Services and to communicate with Registered Users. We also use both Personal Information and Non-Personal Data when evaluating ways to improve the App and the Services. As further described below, in limited circumstances and only as an opt-in option, we may disclose collected information, including Personal Information, to certain third parties in connection with providing the Services or as required by law. We will not use or disclose collected information in ways different from what is described in this policy unless otherwise required by law.
We also use information collected through the App and the Services to communicate with Registered Users from whom such information was collected in order to provide informational materials about us in the form of newsletters. However, unlike communications which are necessary to provide Services ("Necessary Communications"), these informational communications are optional ("Optional Communications"), and we will refrain from sending that kind of information to you if you inform us that you prefer not to receive them, as described in more detail below. We do not send promotional material.
We use Non-Personal Data in a variety of ways, including, by way of example, to evaluate the performance of the App and the general preferences of users, or to generate anonymous statistics for our benefit or for our business partners. Because Non-Personal Data is entirely anonymous, and therefore can never be used by us to identify you, this policy does not limit our ability to use or disclose Non-Personal Data.
If we collect information through the App and/or the Services that you provide to us voluntarily through online forms or surveys, through e-mail communications or by other means, we will treat that information as described herein, as applied to both Personal Information and Non-Personal Data.
As a necessary part of providing the App and Services, we may disclose information collected from you as described in this policy. For example, we may disclose certain Personal Information about you to our third-party service providers, so long as they are only using the Personal Information to provide services to us. Under certain limited circumstances, we may be subject to legal requirements to disclose information collected through the App or Services, such as, by way of example, to a court or a governmental agency, and our policy is to comply fully with all such legal requirements. The disclosures contemplated by this paragraph ("Necessary Disclosures") are necessary if you wish to use the Services. As mentioned above, we may use and disclose Non-Personal Data without restriction. If you do not want us to make such Necessary Disclosures, or to use Non-Personal Data without restriction, you must not use the Service.
Personal Data of Contacts
You may be interested in inviting your contacts or friends to join your network at Meeting Expectations. In the event you wish to use Meeting Expectations’ referral service, you will be directed to a webpage or a page within the App and will have the possibility of adding one or more contacts, email addresses, mobile phone numbers or usernames, in a digital form. The information entered in this form will only be used for the purposes of automatically generating an email or text message to these potential Meeting Expectations users and will not be used for any other commercial marketing. We may permit you to invite others within the address books you maintain to join your network at Meeting Expectations by providing your verification information to us.
Meeting Expectations allows you to create and post events directly to your mobile computing device’s calendar or any connected calendar (i.e. Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, or other calendar). Meeting Expectations does not read or aggregate information from your calendar nor disclose any information on your calendar to any user or third party, without your permission. Permission can only be granted by the user initiating the “share” function in the application.
F. Optional Disclosures (Opting-In and Opting-Out)
Because we respect your privacy, we may from time to time provide certain opportunities for you to indicate your preferences regarding how we use and/or disclose information collected about you from the App or Services. If you are a Registered User, by indicating your preferences in the online profile you create, which includes your registration information and other information voluntarily provided by you (your "Registration Profile"), you will be able to inform us of your preferences regarding optional disclosures. Please also note that, although we will respect such preferences that you indicate regarding such optional communications and optional disclosures, information is nevertheless collected from your use of the App and the Services as described above, largely through automated processes. Even so, we will treat Personal Information collected from you in accordance with your preferences, unless otherwise required by law. Registered Users may also Opt-in or Opt-out of disclosure of geo-location data. Opting in or out is handled through the tablet or smartphone’s General Settings -> Locations Services options.
G. Third Party Sites and Content
H. Access to Personal Information and Security
Registered Users may access their Registration Information and their Profiles at any time to update Personal Information contained within their Profiles. Subsequent uses or disclosures of information by us will reflect those changes. We will send updates of your Public Profile or Personal Profile information to other Registered Users you are sharing public or personal contact information with respectively informing them of the updates you have provided to your Profile. We have no ability to update any information previously disclosed to any third party.
The App has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration of Personal Information in Meeting Expectations’ possession and control. For example, whenever the Services request that Registered Users provide information regarding passwords or tokens, that information is encrypted with industry standard encryption techniques. No one, including Meeting Expectations’ employees, have the ability to decrypt this information. When you are viewing a secure page within the App an icon of a padlock will appear as "locked" at the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, but the same icon will appear as "un-locked" when the user is merely "surfing." We currently use an encryption program known as "SSL," or "Secure Sockets Layer." To learn more about SSL, go to http://www.ssl.com/.
Furthermore, access to Personal Information is physically restricted within our own offices, so that only certain of our employees are granted access to information as appropriate to perform specific jobs and tasks (e.g., performing customer service). Some information, such as the passwords of Registered Users, is also stored in an encrypted form within our own databases. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of Personal Information or Non-Personal Data arising in connection with the theft thereof. Likewise, Registered Users are responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of passwords to any Services, and we bear no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of, Personal Information, if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of a password. If you have any questions about our security measures, you can contact us (see contact information below).
