We are passionate about privacy and take it very seriously.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY PRIOR TO ANY USE OF OR ACCESS TO ANY APPLICATION, THE CLIPO SERVICES OR ANY SITES (EACH AS DEFINED BELOW).

Acceptance of Privacy Policy

Clipo, Inc. (“Clipo”) provides the Wipe Application (“Wipe”), and the related services (the “Services”) to you subject to and conditioned upon your acceptance to the following terms and conditions (the “Privacy Policy”), which may be updated by Clipo from time to time, with or without advance notice to you.

As used herein, the “Wipe Application” means the software application released by Clipo under the name “Wipe” and on any platform, including without limitation, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile; “you”, “yours” and “User” means the user of Wipe and/or Services; “we”, “us”, “Wipe” and “our” means Clipo.

Information We Collect 

What You Directly Provide Us 

For you to create a basic Wipe account, we need to collect some information about you: a unique username that you choose, a password, an email address we can contact you at, and a phone number. We let you update or correct some of the basic Wipe account information by editing your account settings within Wipe. 

What You Automatically Provide Us When You Use Our Services 

We automatically collect some information when you access our Services, which we use to facilitate the broad range of communications offered through our Services, to provide you cool features and functionality, and to enable all the other purposes described in this privacy policy. We explain all this below:

•    Usage Information. We collect information about your activity and the messages you send and receive through our Services. For example, we collect information such as the time, date, sender, recipient of a message, the number of messages you exchange with other users, which users you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a message).

•    Content Information. Please check out the “Message Deletion” section in this privacy policy; it gives you more information about the message content we collect, how long we keep it, and how long third parties may have access to it.

•    Device Information. We collect information about your device, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers (including MAC address and IMEI), browser type and language, mobile device phone number, and mobile network information. We also collect certain device information that will help us diagnose problems in the event you experience any crash or other problem while using our Services. So, for example, if we detect a crash or other problematic event, we may collect the list of apps on your device and other information about your device’s performance at the time of the event for troubleshooting purposes.

•    Device Phonebook and Photos. We may—with your consent—collect information from your device’s phonebook and photos. We do this so that we can connect you to your friends quickly and intuitively, enhance the Services with additional functionality, and for any other purpose described in this privacy policy. You can always revoke your consent to our ongoing ability to collect information from your device’s phonebook and photos by changing the settings on your device if your device offers that option, or by simply deleting Wipe from your device.

•    Location Information. With your consent, we collect your device location so that you can use our location-based features, such as message filters, and for any other purpose described in this privacy policy. As with your phonebook and photos, you can always revoke your consent by changing the settings or preferences on your device. If you do so, certain features of the Services will no longer function. And, of course, you can revoke your consent by deleting Wipe from your device.

•    Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. Like most online services, we use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that store information about your use of the Services, which can, among other things, help us see which areas and features of the Services are popular and let us count visits. Web beacons are small pieces of software on a webpage or email that help us see how you interact with that webpage or email. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Keep in mind, though, that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our Services. To learn more about how third parties use such technologies on our Services, be sure to read the “Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others” section of our privacy policy.

•    Website Log Information. We collect log file information when you use our websites. That information includes, among other things, your web browser type and language, access times, pages viewed, your IP address, and the website you visited before navigating to our websites.

Information We Collect From Other Sources

If another user allows us to collect information from his or her device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with the information we collect through Wipe.

Information We Collect When You Contact Us

When you contact the Support team or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer. For instance, if you submit artwork, files, or any other materials to us through our websites, we will collect what you give us.

How We Use Information

We use the information you provide as noted below:

•    To provide and deliver the products, services, and functionality that you request, and send you related information;

•    We may send you marketing communications on behalf of us or other companies; respond to your comments and questions; provide customer service; and send you technical notices, security alerts, and other informational messages;

•    Monitor and analyze trends and usage;

•    Develop, improve, and refine products, services, and functionality;

•    Personalize the Services by providing advertisements, content, or features that match user profiles or interests. For instance, when you set up an account we may pre- populate certain account information based on the information we collect about you from other users;

•    Verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity; and

•    Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.

Where Information Is Processed

Wipe is based in the United States. No matter where you live or where you happen to use our Services, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries. We want you to know this because the laws of the United States and those of other countries where your information is processed might not be as comprehensive or protective as laws in the country where you live. And while you’re in another country, know that your information may be made available to government or law enforcement requests.

How We Share Information

Here’s the type of information we may share about you with others and how we do so:

•    When you send a message, your recipients will see your username and whatever your message says or shows (whether that’s a photo, video, text, or transaction). When you view content that another Wipe user has sent you, we will let the sender know that you saw it, and if we detect that you captured a screenshot of the message, we will try to let the sender know that.

•    When you let us access your device phonebook, we may share information about you with other users who have your phone number in their device phonebook. In these cases, we will not display your phone number to these users, but we will share the fact that your username and name are associated with your phone number.

•    We may share information about you with service providers who perform services on our behalf.

•    With respect to jointly offered Services or functionality or services offered separately by other companies through our Services, we may share information about you with business partners to provide the Services and functionality you request and to communicate with you about those Services;

•    We may share information about you in response to legal process or a request for information if we believe disclosure is consistent with, or required by, any applicable law, rule, or regulation; to investigate or remedy potential violations of our user agreements
or policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of us, our users, or others; or in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.

•    We may share information about you with your consent or at your direction, or as otherwise provided in this privacy policy.

•    We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

The Services may also contain third-party links or be a co-branded or third-party-branded Service that’s being provided jointly with or by another company. By going to those links or by using a co-branded or third-party-branded Service, you may be providing personal information directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our Services.

Message Deletion

Most messages sent through our Services will be automatically deleted once they have been viewed or have expired. You should know that even though our technology prevents receipts of content to fully capture the content with a screen shot, it is possible that the process of wiping the screen of the device to reveal the content is recoded by another camera. When the recipient attempts to capture the screen, even though, he/she will not be able to capture the entire screen, we’ll try to both notify you about the attempted screenshot and send a copy of the partial image that has been captured by the recipient.

Each recipient has a period of 24 hours from the time a message is delivered to view the message. If the message is not viewed, the recipient will no longer be able to view the message. However, the message will stay on our server for an additional 24 hours during which time you can resend the message to the recipient if you decide to do so. After a total of 48 hours the message will be deleted from our server regardless of whether the message has been viewed or not by the recipient.

We can’t guarantee that messages will be deleted within a specific timeframe. And even after we’ve deleted message data from our servers, that same data may remain in backup for a limited period of time. We also sometimes receive requests from law enforcement requiring us by law to suspend our ordinary server-deletion practices for specific information. Finally, of course, as with any digital information, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients’ devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted.

Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies on Wipe. These companies may collect information about how you use the Services and other websites and online services over time and across different services. The information collected may include unique device identifiers, device manufacturer and operating system, IP address, browser type, pages viewed, session start/stop time, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity. Among the third parties we use for analytics is Flurry, which provides mobile analytics in connection with our app. For more information about Flurry’s privacy practices, or to opt out of Flurry Analytics tracking through our app, please visit www.flurry.com/user-opt-out.html.

Additionally, some companies may use the information they collect on our blog and other websites to deliver targeted advertisements on behalf of us or other companies, including on third-party websites and apps. Wipe does not currently respond to do-not-track signals that

may be sent from your device. If we do so in the future, we will provide information about that practice in an updated version of this privacy policy.
