Path

Privacy Policy

Thanks for visiting our Privacy Policy. At Path, we are committed to protecting your privacy, and we believe in being transparent about what information we collect and how we use it. In keeping with these principles, our Privacy Policy explains how Path and its corporate affiliates (“Path,” “we” or “us”) collect, use, and share information when you register for and use our websites on which a link to this Privacy Policy is posted (including www.path.com) or our mobile applications in which this Privacy Policy is made available, including Path and Talk (collectively, our “Services”). This Privacy Policy reflects our current data collection, use, and sharing practices. We encourage you to keep your mobile applications up to date.

This Privacy Policy operates alongside our Terms of Use and covers the following:

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

In order to provide you with our Services, we collect certain information from you when you register and interact with our Services. The information we gather falls into two categories: information you actively provide (for instance when you create a Path account), and information we collect through your use of our Services.

Information You Provide

Information Others Share About You.

We may receive information about you from other users, such as when they connect their address book to our Services, invite you to use our Services, post a photo of you, or include you in a moment or at a location.

Information We Receive From Your Use of Our Services.

HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

We use this information for the purposes described below:

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE SHARE?

We will not share the information we have collected from you except as described below:

Sharing With Other Users.

Third Party Applications.

We will share your information, including personal information, location information, friends list, and moments with certain social networking or other third party applications or services, if you choose to connect them to our Services.

Service Providers and Other Third Parties.

We will share your information with service providers and other third parties who are working with us to perform functions and process user data on our behalf. Service providers have access to your personal information only to perform services on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose it or use it for any other purposes). Some of these service providers and other third parties, such as analytics providers, may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services when you use our services. We are not responsible for the actions of third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties.

Other Sharing. We will also share your information:

ACCESSING AND MODIFYING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You can access and modify certain profile information or delete content you have posted through our Services. You can either temporarily disable or permanently delete your account through our Services.

If you disable your account, we log you out of your account and cease sending you push notifications, but we will save your information in case you later decide to reactivate your account. Your profile and content will still be visible by other users.

If you delete your account, we will permanently delete your account information and moments and we will delete your messages according to our regular retention schedule. Please note that we will continue to store certain information for analytics purposes, but that information will not include your personal information such as name, email address, or telephone number. We will also retain any information as required by law. Comments or emotions you make on content shared by others, or messages you send, may also remain visible to other users after you delete your account.

YOUR PREFERENCES

We provide you with settings that allow you to adjust your sharing preferences, including the automatic sharing of your location with others. Please carefully use our Services and review your account settings.

Our settings may also allow you to adjust your communications preferences. If you do not wish to receive promotional email messages from Path, you may opt out by following the unsubscribe instructions in those emails. If you opt out, you will still receive non-promotional emails from us about your account and our Services.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT TALK “PLACES”

The Places feature in Talk allows you to submit inquires or requests to other businesses through us. Here’s how it works: you message us, we contact the business, and we provide you with a response. We store the messages you send us and may use them to provide, improve, and enhance our Services, make recommendations, and show you advertisements for products and services that we think may be of interest to you. We also use information we collect through Places as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you use Places, we may provide your personal information such as name, telephone number, or address to a business in order to facilitate your request, such as making a reservation or appointment. Path displays a sampling of messages that users have submitted using Places. The messages you send using Places may be included in the sample messages and, if they are, will be viewable by other Talk users. However, Path will only display the content of the messages and not any associated account or other identifiable information. If you delete your account, sample messages will continue to be displayed. We also share information we collect through Places as described in this Privacy Policy.

Places is a messaging service and is not meant to facilitate the payment of goods or services. Users should not provide any payment or other sensitive personal information when using Places.

INTERNATIONAL USERS

If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, we may transfer your information to the United States and process it there (or in any other country in which we operate). By using our Services, you consent to the collection, transfer, use, storage, and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN

Our Services are not directed to children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13, we will delete such information.

WHAT STEPS DO WE TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We take reasonable measures to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

Any information that is collected is subject to the privacy policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may, however, modify and revise our privacy policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this policy, we will notify you of such changes by posting them on this page or by sending you an email or other notification, and we will indicate when such changes will become effective. By continuing to access or use our Services after those changes become effective, you are agreeing to be bound by the revised policy.

Please contact us at service@path.com if you have any questions about our Privacy Policy.
