Privacy Policy


Your privacy is of critical importance to MyDowntown Mobile® (a trademark of Gruskin Architecture + Design, P.C.). This Privacy Policy describes what information we collect and how it's used and shared.

At MyDowntown Mobile, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our social networking and mobile application products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

It is MyDowntown Mobile’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Websites and Applications.

Mobile Application Users and Website Visitors

MyDowntown Mobile may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.  MyDowntown Mobile’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MyDowntown Mobile visitors use its Applications and Websites.

MyDowntown Mobile may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.  MyDowntown Mobile does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

MyDowntown Mobile is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. By using our service, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and accompanying "Terms of Service" and "Acceptable Use Policy," which are incorporated herein by reference.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of MyDowntown Mobile’s Applications and visitors to MyDowntown Mobile’s Website choose to interact with MyDowntown Mobile in ways that require MyDowntown Mobile to gather personally-identifying information.  The amount and type of information that MyDowntown Mobile gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.  For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a social network at MyDowntown Mobile to provide a username and email address.  In any case, MyDowntown Mobile collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MyDowntown Mobile. MyDowntown Mobile does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.  And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Application-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

MyDowntown Mobile may collect statistics about the behavior of users of its Applications and visitors to its Websites.  For instance, MyDowntown Mobile may monitor the most popular social networks on the MyDowntown Mobile site.  MyDowntown Mobile may display this information publicly or provide it to others.  However, MyDowntown Mobile does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MyDowntown Mobile discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MyDowntown Mobile’s behalf or to provide services available at MyDowntown Mobile’s Applications and Websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.  Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MyDowntown Mobile’s Applications and Websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MyDowntown Mobile will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.  Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, MyDowntown Mobile discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when MyDowntown Mobile believes, in good faith, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MyDowntown Mobile, third parties or the public at large.  If you are a registered user of a MyDowntown Mobile Application or Website, and have supplied your email address, MyDowntown Mobile may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up- to-date with what’s going on with MyDowntown Mobile and our products. MyDowntown Mobile takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.  MyDowntown Mobile uses cookies to help MyDowntown Mobile identify and track visitors, their usage of the MyDowntown Mobile Websites, and their website access preferences.  MyDowntown Mobile visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using MyDowntown Mobile’s Websites, with the drawback that certain features of MyDowntown Mobile’s Websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our Applications or Websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies.  These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer.  This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by MyDowntown Mobile, and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Social Sharing

MyDowntown Mobile may have a feature on our Mobile Applications allowing users to sign-in to their app with the user’s Facebook and/or Twitter account. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of third-party websites. If the user choses to do so, he or she agrees to all of Facebook’s and/or Twitter’s policies. Additionally, any data collected by signing in to a MyDowntown Mobile app through this method will not be used for any purposes other than logging in and sharing comments on the Mobile Application and the user’s own Facebook and/or Twitter account.

Links to Other Sites

Our Applications and Websites may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, MyDowntown Mobile may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in MyDowntown Mobile’s sole discretion.  MyDowntown Mobile encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.  If you have a MyDowntown Mobile account, you should also check www.MyDowntown-Mobile.com for alerts regarding these changes.  Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
