This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Service and your use of the Squealock Service. In any case, you affirm that you are at least 18 years old as the Squealock Service is not intended for children under 18. If you are under 18 years of age, you are not permitted to use our service. You further represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a" terrorist-supporting" country, and that you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. Swurv, LLC is the owner of the Service, and is located in Seattle, Washington, USA. These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Swurv, LLC without restriction.
Swurv, LLC may obtain may collect information such as your Squealock user ID (SLID), your email (only if you provide it for password resetting purposes. Emails or phone numbers not required to use Squealock), push notification name (if applicable), and operating system information (Android v iOS) to Swurv, LLC when choosing to participate in various uses of the Squealock Service, such as registering as a user. When you visit the Squealock Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. When you visit our website (squealock.com), we may also be able to view your browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, among others.
Swurv, LLC does not collect your bank card information (including name, address and card number). When you pay to use our service, all financial transactions are handled by Google when using an Android device, and by Apple when using an iOS device. If we do choose to use our own payment system, we will not be storing any payment card information once your payment is processed, and will do so in compliance with PCI DSS.
Swurv, LLC does not collect names, addresses or other contact information from its users' mobile address book or contact lists. The contents of messages that have been delivered by the Squealock Service are not copied, kept or archived by Squealock in the normal course of business. While using the Squealock service, users type their messages, which are securely sent to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be a Squealock user), if that recipient is online. If the recipient is not online, the undelivered message is held in our server in encrypted form until it can be delivered. If the message is undelivered for thirty (30) days, the undelivered encrypted message self-destructs from our servers. Once a message has been delivered, it no longer resides on our servers. The contents of any delivered messages are not kept or retained by Squealock - the only records of the content of any delivered messages do not reside on the senders and recipients’ mobile devices either, as messages self-destruct once they are read.
Swurv, LLC takes critical steps to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Squealock and you do so at your own risk. Although Squealock is end-to-end encrypted, using unsecured Wi-Fi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Squealock Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Swurv, LLC makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Swurv, LLC learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Swurv, LLC may post a notice on the Squealock site, social media pages (Facebook, Google +, Twitter) or through the Squealock app, if a security breach occurs. Because we collect very little information, breaches are less likely to impact our users in terms of information leakage.
Our services are directed to or intended to be used by persons over the age of 18. For that reason, Swurv, LLC does not knowingly collect or maintain Personally Identifiable Information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Squealock Site or Squealock Service from persons under 18 years of age. Anyone under that age threshold is therefore not allowed to use our applications at any time or in any manner. If Swurv, LLC learns that Personally Identifiable Information of persons under 18 years of age has been collected though our app or site, then Swurv, LLC may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible.
Only when served with a legal document (search warrant, court orders, subpoenas, national security requests, foreign government requests), is Swurv, LLC able to provide any information regarding your account to Law Enforcement. Because Squealock is designed to collect and store as little information as possible, we are only able to turn over the following, if law enforcement has reason to believe that it belongs to a person of interest :
-The user's Squealock user ID (SLID)
- The user's email, if one was provided, as it is currently not required for registration purposes.
-The user's device operating system (iOS or Android)
-Total count of messages sent
