Liana is a social media / mobile app designed as a geo located chat for meeting new people, a place to have discussions and to share news and information. It is intended to be a fun place to visit and it is important to us (and for you) that it remains a safe and friendly environment so you agree you will only use Liana in a manner consistent with its purpose and which is in accordance with these terms and conditions (the "Terms") set forth. By using the Liana mobile app/website and Liana service you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions

Cookie/Tracking Technology

The Site / App may use cookie and tracking technology depending on the features offered. Cookie and tracking technology is useful for gathering information such as browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the Site, and understanding how visitors use the Site. Cookies can also help customize the Site for visitors. Personal information cannot be collected via cookies and other tracking technology; however, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, cookies may be tied to such information. Aggregate cookie and tracking information may be shared with third parties. You may refuse cookies by changing your internet browser preferences, but doing so may diminish your experience on the websites. This privacy policy does not cover third parties’ use of cookies.

Data Tracking

In order to better serve our members, we use cookies and periodically analyze web logs. We may also use third-party services such as Google Analytics. This helps us understand traffic patterns and know if there are problems with our website. We may also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our mailings, so that we can tell which mailings appeal most to The Centrist Project members.

URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser’s address bar when you access the page.

Location

Our Service is designed to help you find other users of this service near and far to communicate with them. We use your location information (e.g. by using the GPS on your mobile device) to provide the functionality of our Service such as displaying your location on the Services map to other users while you have Liana running on your device. We may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. By using this Service you agree to share your location with Liana and other users of the Service.

If you opt to make your profile information available for public viewing and another user of our Service clicks on your icon, your profile information may be displayed on their mobile device - showing your name, profile photo(s), and any other information you may have chosen to share with them. Other users can see this information about you, and they may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities outside of our control and without your knowledge. While it would be unfortunate for this to happen and we hope this type of conduct does not occur within our community, your information may be subject to abuse, misuse, and monitoring by others. Please understand you share your information at your own risk.

At present we use Google Maps to provide Map services within our software. You may check the Google Privacy Policy to ascertian how your data is handled by their services.

Sharing and Disclosure of Information

We do not rent, sell, or share any information about our users with any third-parties, except as specifically described herein. We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe such action is necessary to:

  1. comply with the law, or legal process served on us;
  2. protect and defend our rights or property (including the enforcement of our agreements); or
  3. act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our Service or members of the public.

In order to provide you with Liana products you have requested, Liana may sometimes, if necessary, share your Personal Information and traffic data with trusted partner service providers and/or agents, for example: banking organizations or other providers of payment and analytical services, customer support, or hosting services. Liana will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to observe the relevant legislation.

The following is a description of how we may share your Personal Information with trusted third party partners. Should we add additional partners, we will immediately update this description:

  1. We may use Push Notification Services to notify you about various events related to the app. If we do, the phone number or the name of the person calling you or sending you a message may be part of the notification. This message is sent to the push notification service provider, for delivery to your device.
  2. We may use third parties to process the payment and/or billing information that you submit on our Site or through the Liana to facilitate payment transactions. We require that these third parties take the appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to comply with relevant laws, but we are not liable or responsible for these third party transactions. Therefore, you should review such third party terms and conditions before providing your payment or billing information.

Once you register, at any time you may review and revise your profile information as well as update your sharing preferences. For example you may go to the profile tab and adjust the visibility of the fields besides your first and last names at will. If your information changes please promptly update the respective information by signing-in to your account and following the screen prompts. We strongly urge you to periodically change your password to help reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your account information. You may deactivate or delete your Profile at any time. Should you ever decide to halt our serivces that track your location, you can log off of your account at any time. If you terminate your account, your profile, including your location data, the Content (as defined in Liana's Terms of Service) you have submitted and/or received and any promotional offers you received, will be removed. Please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request, only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.

Children's Privacy

Liana websites and Mobile Apps are not intended for or designed to attract anyone under the age of 18 and we do not intentionally or knowingly collect Personal Information on our sites from anyone under the age of 18 (or older in some jurisdictions). We encourage parents to be involved in the online activities of their children to ensure that no information is collected from a child without parental permission

Security

We take reasonable precaution to protect Personal Information from misuse, loss and unauthorized access. Although we cannot guarantee that Personal Information will not be subject to unauthorized access, we have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to protect Personal Information. Personal Information is stored on our servers and protected by secured networks to which access is limited to a few authorized employees and personnel. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

Business Transitions

In the event that we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred. As part of such a transaction the new entity will be required to commit to the same level of protection of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we cannot obtain such a commitment, we will not perform the business transition. We will post a notice on this Site of any such change in ownership or control of the Personal Information we may have prior to such transfer.
