3. Our Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally–Identifying Information.
“Personally–Identifying Information,” is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. We will not disclose your Personally-Identifying Information to third parties unless we obtain your permission to do so at the time we collect it, except as set forth below:
A. Collecting Personally-Identifying Information from and about App Users.
i. Registration and Other Information Provided to Us.
When you register to use this App, you may be asked to disclose Personally–Identifying Information including without limitation your name, email address and your profile photo.
During the registration process you will see a pop up window that states “Omlet would like to access your contacts.” If you click “OK” and affirmatively opt-in, we will collect the contacts stored locally on your mobile device. This information may contain Personally-Identifiable Information about you and your contacts. If you decide that you no longer want us to continue collecting the contacts stored locally on your mobile device, and you are using a device running iOS6 or higher, you may revoke your consent by pressing the Settings icon, pressing on the privacy section, pressing on “Contacts,” pressing on Omlet in the application list and toggling the switch for contacts from on to off. (If you are running iOS5 or an earlier operating system, this opt-out feature is not available.)
You may also submit Personally-Identifying Information to us when you send us a written or verbal comment or note. For example, if you submit a verbal, recorded message to us, you can tell us Personally-Identifying Information in your message, and you may attach your photo to the verbal message.
ii. Your Use of Our Text and Audio Messaging Service
You may use the text messaging service on Omlet to send your contacts text messages. If you use this service, you may include Personally-Identifying Information (such as your name, address, photo or phone number) in a text message that you send to your friends via Omlet. If you elect to include Personally-Identifying Information in the conversations you have on Omlet, you will provide that Personally-Identifying Information to us.
You may also use the “Record Audio” messaging service to record verbal messages and include them in your text messages. If you use this service, you may include Personally-Identifying Information (such as your name, phone number or address) in your recorded message. If you elect to include Personally-Identifying Information in the messages you record, you will provide that Personally-Identifying Information to us.
iii. Your Use of “Share Functionality” on Omlet.
You may sign into Omlet using third party accounts such as your Gmail account or Yahoo! email account. If you elect to use this feature, you will provide us with Personally-Identifying Information associated with your third party accounts, including without limitation: your name, email address, phone number, profile photo URL. We will also display a pop up window asking you if we can access your contacts associated with this third party account.

If you use this feature and choose to include Personally-Identifying Information in your images, you will provide that Personally-Identifying Information to us.
v. Your Use of “Inviting Nearby People to Chat” on Omlet.
You may broadcast your location in two ways:
1. You may elect to broadcast your location to all other Omlet users who are within a mile radius (the “Group Range”) of where you so that you can chat with them. To broadcast your location, tap on wrench icon on the bottom right hand side of the main menu bar, click on the “Share Yourself” bar, and either share your location for an hour or always by selecting the applicable option. Once you broadcast that you are in a location, your location will be available for other Omlet users in the Group Range to join for amount of time you selected. (In the future we may give you the option of broadcasting your conversations for additional amounts of time.) If you use this feature, other Omlet users who are in the Group Range will see your name and email address on the people tab at the top of the application. If another Omlet user clicks on your name, they will start a chat with you.
2. You may elect to broadcast your location only to Omlet users you know and who are within the Group Range by attaching a pin code to the broadcast. To broadcast a chat with a pin code, start a chat, press the action button, press the orange circle and choose share with a pin. The other Omlet users in your conversation who are within the Group Range will receive the pin, and they may use the pin to join your conversation.
If you broadcast your location in either of these two ways, we will collect information about your geographic location. We will know your location to within a mile.) If you join a conversation that is broadcasted in either of these two ways, we will also collect information about your geographic location, and we will know your location to within a mile.
You may opt out of broadcasting your location by tapping on the wrench icon on the bottom right hand side of the main menu bar, clicking on the “Share Yourself” bar, and selecting “disable.” This will permanently disable the Invite Nearby People to Chat feature on the App. You may also configure the operating system on your mobile device to prohibit us from collecting your geo-location information. If you configure your mobile device to prohibit us from collecting your geo-location information, you will not be able to join a broadcast conversation or broadcast a conversation unless you re-configure the systems settings in your mobile device to permit us to track your location. Please consult your device manual for instructions on how to do this.
If unwanted members join a group they can be removed from the conversation by going to the Actions screen and swiping on their contact information.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT US TO COLLECT YOUR GEO-LOCATION INFORMATION, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE INVITING NEARBY PEOPLE TO CHAT SERVICE.
vi. Use of “Check In” Service on Omlet.
When you are having a conversation with your friends, you may decide to share your location with your friends during that conversation. If you decide to use this feature, we will present you with a pop-up notice saying that Omlet would like to use your current location. If you click “OK” and opt-in to give us consent, we will collect information about your geographic location including without limitation your GPS coordinates, address and a map of where you are located. (We will know your location to within a mile.)
To delete a “Check In” post, navigate to the chat where the checking post is located, scroll until the checking post is on the screen, swipe the post horizontally, when the “Delete” button appears, press it.
