Chat Leap Privacy Policy

Last Revised: January _1_, 2017

Chat Leap Ltd. and its affiliates (“Chat Leap” or “we”) respect the privacy of its users (“User” or “you”) and are committed to protect its Users’ information. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you use our Services. The term “Services” refers to our proprietary software platform that provides a marketing automation suite for instant messaging and enables, among other functionalities, deploying “Chatbots” to certain social media and/or instant messaging platforms, such as Facebook Messenger, Kik and Telegram.

  1. Your consent (important, please read!)

By downloading, accessing and/or using the Services, or any portion thereof, you agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this Privacy Policy, including to the collection and processing of your Personal Information (as defined below). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY TERM PROVIDED HEREIN, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES.

  1. Which information may we collect about our Users?

We may collect two types of data and information about our Users:

  1. Non-personal Information. The first type is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-Personal Information”). To put it simply, do not know the identity of the User from which we have collected the Non-personal Information, unless it is cross-referenced with Personal Information. Non-personal Information which we may gather, consists of technical information and behavioral information. For example, technical information may include information such as the type and version of your device and its operating system, the type of browser, screen resolution, device browser and keyboard language, and so on. Behavioral information may include the User’s click-stream on the Services, the activities of the User on the Services, including information pertaining to activities made by the User and additional information of a similar nature.          

  2. Personal Information. The other type of information we may collect is individually identifiable information. To put it simply, this information may identify an individual or is of a private and/or sensitive nature such as first and last name, home address and email address as well as your chat history with chatbot(s) (“Personal Information”). Personal Information that we may gather also consists of any personal details provided voluntarily by the User during the registration process and/or while accessing or using the Services, either directly via the User’s devices or via certain service and platform providers (such as Facebook, Kik or Telegram).

  1. Activating the Services. If you are a commercial customers who subscribed to our Services, you will be required to provide us with certain Personal Information during the activation process. Such information may include your name, phone number, email address and billing information. Chat Leap hereby reserves the right to request additional information in the future. In addition, Users of the Services automatically provide their IP address (or Mac Address, as applicable).
  2. Using the Services. Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include any chatbots generated using the Services, your chat history with the chatbot(s), IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested.
  3. Information from Third Party Service Providers: When you connect to the Services through service and platform providers (such as Facebook, Kik or Telegram) for the first time, such service providers may furnish some information about you and your account with them. This information is transferred to Chat Leap only after your approval. Therefore, you will be asked to permit such service providers to share with the Services all or some of the following information about you:  

Any Non-Personal Information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be treated as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists.

Please note: you are not obligated to provide us with any Personal Information by law. You hereby agree and acknowledge that you are providing us with Personal Information at your own free will, for the purpose of allowing us to provide you with the Services, and that we may keep such Personal Information in a database which will be maintained, and, if required, registered in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

  1. How do we collect information about our Users?

We may further log the content you generate during your use of the Services, such as any text you input when chatting with one or more of our chatbots. 

  2. We may collect information from the device from which you choose to use the Services. Such information may either be collected automatically or subject to your authorization, as determined by, and in accordance with, your device operating system’s characteristics, features or settings. If you are accessing the Services through a web browser, Chat Leap may place cookies (as further described below) on your device used to access the Services that track Users’ activities after they leave the Services and that store information about your use of the Services to improve your future experiences.

  3. We may collect information which you voluntarily permitted certain service providers to provide us. For example, when you connect to the Services through Facebook, we will ask you to allow Facebook to provide us certain information (as described above).
