Elefend Security Beta - Privacy Policy

Last Updated 23 September 2019

Elefend Call Protection Beta is a trial version of a future service which will potentially be provided by Elefend LTD. ("Elefend"). Elefend knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. We take your privacy seriously. You can learn more about our Privacy Policy below. By testing our services, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy (this "Policy").

Capitalized terms which are not defined herein, shall have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms of Use at ("Terms of Use"), into which this Privacy Policy is incorporated thereto by reference.

Our Commitment

We design our service with your privacy in mind. We involve experts from various fields, including legal, security and others to make sure that no decision is taken without respect for your privacy.

We strive to be transparent in the way we process your data. Because we use many of the same online services you do, we know that insufficient information and overly complicated language are common issues in privacy policies. We have written our Privacy Policy and related documents in plain language. We actually want you to read our policies and understand our privacy practices!

We work hard to keep your information secure.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This policy covers how Elefend treats personal information that Elefend collects and receives via its service Beta and all related websites, networks and any service provided by us (collectively, our "Service"). This includes information that is personally identifiable-such as your name, email address, IP address, phone number and calls content.

What Information Do We Collect?

We may collect information from you in a variety of different ways. Some of this information may identify you. Information may be kept in an identifiable format, or in an aggregate format which means that you cannot reasonably be identified from it. We provide further detail on the type of info we collect, and how we collect it, below:

Information You Provide. When you register for our Service or test the Service, Elefend collects what is generally called "personally identifiable information", "personal information" or "personal data". All these terms refer to information that specifically relates to or identifies a particular individual. Personal information also includes information that when linked to other information identifies a specific individual. When you register, we may ask for a limited amount of personal information, including but not limited to your contact information. When you are testing our Service, you are not anonymous to us. Elefend also collects information about your transactions with us, including phone calls content (from unknown numbers only), robocalls recordings and other information about your test of our Service. By installing and testing the Service, you agree that all of your call recordings, from unknown callers, will be collected by and stored with Elefend and/or its third party service providers. We will not share or disclose such information except in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

"Automatically Collected" Information. when you test the Service, we may automatically record certain information from your device. This "automatically collected" information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Service.

Integrated Services. You may be given the option to access or register for the Service through the use of your user name and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each, an "Integrated Service"), such as through the use of your Google, Microsoft or Facebook credentials, or otherwise have the option to authorize an Integrated Service to provide personal information or other information to us. If you are presented with this option, when you authorize us to connect with an Integrated Service, you authorize us to access and store your personal information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, including your name and email address, and to use and disclose such information in accordance with this Policy. You should check your privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand and change the information sent to us through each Integrated Service. Please review each Integrated Service’s terms and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to our Service.

Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information, including personal information, from third parties and sources other than the Service, such as our partners. If we combine or associate information from other sources with personal information that we collect through the Service, we will treat the combined information as personal information in accordance with this Policy.

How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

We use the information we collect in a variety of ways in designing the Service, operating our Beta and preparing to launch the commercial version of the Service, including the following:

We use the information that we collect on the Service to operate, maintain, enhance and develop the Service, and to prepare and develop the commercial version of the Service and otherwise to provide support to users.

We use the information that we collect to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the Service and prepare for commercial launch of our Service.

We may use your contact or other information we collect from you (i) to receive your insights and feedback from your experience in testing the Services or (ii) to contact you for administrative purposes such as customer service, to address intellectual property infringement or other claimed violations of our terms of use or (iii) to send communications, including updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us that are related to the Service. Generally, you have the ability to opt-out of receiving any promotional communications.

We may use "cookies" information and "automatically collected" information to: (i) personalize our services, such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service; (ii) provide content and notifications about our Service; (iii) monitor and analyze the effectiveness of Service; (iv) monitor metrics such as total number of calls made, calls from unknown numbers, fraud calls. By testing and using the Service, you authorize us to use the information we gather from you through cookies and automated collection in this way.

Sharing or Disclosing Information

We DO NOT sell customer information. We share or disclose customer information only as described below. Except as described in this Policy, we will not disclose your information that we collect while providing the Service to third parties unless such disclosure is needed to test or provide the Service. We may disclose information to third parties if you consent to us doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:

We work with third party service providers that provide website, analysis, development, QA, hosting, maintenance, call routing, data transmission, data processing and/or storage, and other functions necessary to provide, build or optimize the Service. These third parties may have access to or process your information as part of providing those services for us. However, we limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions. In addition, they agree by contract to maintain the confidentiality of such information.

Additionally, we may make certain automatically-collected, aggregated, or non-personally-identifiable information available to third parties for various purposes, including (i) to monitor network traffic or activity in order to detect malicious actors and protect from malware, fraud, unlawful uses or other illegal activity, (ii) compliance with various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to assist us and such third parties providing services to us in understanding our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, or functionality available through the Service.

We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state or federal laws (such as U.S. copyright law), in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.

We also reserve the right to disclose your information when we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is appropriate or necessary to (i) take precautions against liability, (ii) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity, (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, (iv) protect the security or integrity of the Service or any facilities or equipment used to make the Service available, or (v) protect our property or legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights, property, or safety of others.

Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer of Elefend, or to a successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets. In the event Elefend is acquired by or merged with another company, the terms of this Privacy Policy shall continue to apply.

Information Retention Policy

Except when we believe we are required to retain your personal information by law, effective as of the date of this Privacy Policy we will only retain your personal information for two years after we become aware that you have ceased testing the Service. However, we may not know if you have stopped using the Service so we encourage you to contact us at info@elefend.com if you are no longer testing the Service. We may retain other information that is not personally identifiable for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.

Your Right to Edit And Delete Your Information

Access: you may request access to the personal information you provide;

Correction: you may have inaccurate/incomplete personal information corrected and updated;

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please write to us at info@elefend.com and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.

Keep in mind, we may reject requests for certain reasons, including if the request is unlawful or if it may infringe on the rights and freedoms of another person.

For your protection, we may ask you to provide proof of identity before we can answer the above requests.

Device permissions: Part of the Service that includes a mobile app (android) requires permissions for specific types of device data and notifications, such as contacts, dialer, location and microphone. Permissions are required in order for the Services to run on your device.
