      Profile Information. When you sign up to the Voxer service or update your profile information you may provide us with certain contact or personal information, such as your name, email address, phone number, your image, or other personally identifiable information about you. This data will be stored on your device and on our servers for a period of time.

      Communication Content. One of the primary reasons people use the Products is to communicate with others. Voice, text and pictures that you create to communicate with your Contacts and colleagues will be stored on your device and on our servers for a period of time.

    2. Information We Collect During Your Use of Voxer Site or Use the Products:

      Information and Data Collected During Normal Use of the Products. In order to perform to its specifications, the Products will regularly communicate with Voxer hardware/software/servers during the normal course of operation and such hardware/software/servers will retrieve, process, transmit and store data and content from the Products and the devices which the Products are loaded onto (including voice conversations and text conversations). In addition, the Products may automatically send us crash reports from your device. We use this information to diagnose problems with the Products and to improve them.

      Contacts Information. As part of your usage of our Products, we provide you the opportunity to connect automatically with your friends. We employ various techniques in order to facilitate friends finding each other on our service, including offering contact importer tools to facilitate adding to your contacts (including Facebook Friends and contacts in your address book) so that you can more readily ask your contacts to join and communicate with you through the Voxer Products. With your permission, we will access your address book, call log and SMS log, and import your contacts’ names, email addresses, phone numbers, image, geographic location and Facebook IDs to facilitate automatic connection with your friends. We do this only for contact matching to help your friends and you find each other. Also, when you invite friends to the service, we will access your Address Book and we will import your contacts names and phone numbers in order to facilitate the invitation. We also collect some settings that help us to interpret your data, such as the language and keyboard settings that you have established, and the phone’s carrier, mobile network code and mobile country code.

      Location Information. If you have enabled location services on your phone, we collect your location information to make a map available to the recipients of your messages showing your location. If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your phone.

      Aggregate Data. Voxer (and its contractors) may track, collect and report aggregate data regarding user activity, Products usage or Voxer Site usage (via analytics software or otherwise) and we may use this data for commercial purposes, but we shall not share any personally identifiable information except as expressly specified herein or in the Voxer License Agreement.

Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), pages visited, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

      Click-through URL. In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Voxer website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.

      Cookies and other technologies. As is standard practice on many websites, Voxer’s Site uses “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our online advertising is effective. We use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on our website, to make it even more rewarding as well as to study the effectiveness of our customer communications. And we use cookies to customize your experience and provide greater convenience each time you interact with us. If, however, you prefer not to enable cookies, certain features of the Voxer website will not be available to you.

      Pixel Tags. In addition we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a customer. We store all of this information in a secure database maintained by us or our contractors.

We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law.
