GroupFlow Privacy Statement
Thank you for using GroupFlow!
All visitors to our Service (“Visitors”) who join a GroupFlow Group are Members of the Group. Customers of the GroupFlow Service are either Groups or Group Leaders, depending on the context. Group Leaders are Group Members who have the authority to act on behalf of their Group to do business with GroupFlow.
Information we collect and how we use it
When you use GroupFlow, you give us certain information voluntarily. This includes your name, email address, phone number, Group Member profile information, messages, and any other information you give us or to your Group through our Service. When you interact with a Group through our Service, we collect and process this information solely on behalf of the Group.
Groups are responsible for Visitors' information, including for its legality, security and integrity. Please contact your Groups for information on how they use your personal information.
GroupFlow collects technical information from you, including IP address, device make and model, operating system, web browser, and web browser cookies that are automatically sent by your device or web browser.
We also may collect information about how you use the app or your Groups' GroupFlow-hosted websites, including which pages were visited, which screens were shown, which buttons and actions were taken, and the date and time of these events.

GroupFlow also shares aggregated and anonymized version of Click-Flow Data to your Groups to provide them with information to help them provide a better experience for their Members.
Our mobile application on iOS (Apple) and Android (Google) has to interact with our computer servers. As with the Login Cookie on a website, we assign your device a token so that you do not have to log in every time you use the Service via our mobile apps.
You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some of our Service features may not work properly without cookies, and you will not be able to log in. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them.

When we employ another company to perform a function of this type, we only provide them with the Personal Data and Information they need to perform their specific function and we do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose your personal information except as necessary to perform the tasks we have asked them to do for us or to comply with legal requirements.

Choices you have about your information
Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. If you are a Member of a Group, many of these controls are built directly into GroupFlow or your settings within the Group's website. For example, you can:
Edit information in your Member profile within your Group at any time. Your name, profile photo, pronouns, date you joined your Group, and city of residence are always available to other Members to see. For all other parts of your Member profile, you may decide what parts of your profile are available to other members in your group.
Link or unlink your GroupFlow account from other services (like Discord).
A. Join Groups you trust
You get to decide the Groups you want to join. You also get to decide whether you trust your Group with the information sharing described in this policy.
B. Adjust your notification settings
In your account settings within your Group, you can control the type and mode of notifications you receive through the Service. You can choose to be notified by email or mobile alerts, both, or neither. You can choose to turn on or off your notifications by type, such as group announcements, event announcements, and direct chat messages.
Some types of notifications cannot be opted out of, as these types are required to maintain your membership with your Group. Examples include password change email and email confirmation email.
C. Opt out of email from GroupFlow
We would like to send you, as a Group Leader, information about our services that you may be interested in. If you have agreed to receive marketing messages from us, you may opt-out at any time. We provide an opt-out link at the bottom of each email message.
Because we plan our communications in advance, it may take several weeks for your opt-out request to take effect. If you continue to receive marketing messages from us after you opt-out, please let us know so that we can investigate the situation.
D. Deleting cookies
To manage or delete browser cookies, please see your browser’s privacy settings.
You can leave one or more of your Groups, or delete your Group account (on a Group by Group basis). As soon as you leave, we stop collecting your Personal Data for that Group. To delete your Group account, contact the Group directly.
Disputes with Groups or Members
GroupFlow does not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not use the Service or submit any Personal Data through the Service. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Data to GroupFlow through the Service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look to delete that information from our databases.
Links to other websites
One of the special features of the Service is that it allows you to enable various online Third Party services, such as social media and social networking services like Discord and Meetup (each, an “Integrated Service”), to integrate directly into your Group. By directly integrating these services, we make your use of GroupFlow richer and more personalized. To enable Integrated Services, we will ask you to authorize GroupFlow to access the Integrated Services (or vice versa). When you add an Integrated Service account to a Group (or vice versa), your Personal Data, non-personal data, location information, your content, your Group name, your Group location, your GroupFlow affiliation, profile photo, Facebook Connect ID, Profile, and other relevant personal information may be passed through to, or received from, the Integrated Service in connection with your use of the Service. We may import, use, disclose, and retain such data and information to, among other things, customize and improve the Service for you and others. Note that Integrated Services may also import, use, and retain this information. You may be able to control how certain information is shared with us in your privacy settings within the Integrated Services. However, please remember that the manner in which Integrated Services collect, use, store, and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of the companies operating those Integrated Services, and we shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Integrated Service that may be enabled within the Service.
We use appropriate technical and organizational measures including encryption, aggregation, and pseudonymization to protect your Personal Data provided via the Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet, email, or other electronic transmission is ever 100% secure or error free, so we cannot guarantee that your Personal Data will never be accessed, used, or disclosed, so you should take special care in deciding what information you share on the Service.
“Phishing” is a scam designed to steal your Personal Data or Information. If you receive an email that looks like it is from us asking you for information about you, please contact us at help@groupFlow.app.
If you are a California resident using the Services, the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") grants you the right to request access to and deletion of the Personal Information GroupFlow collects about you, as well as to request that we disclose how we collect, use, and share your Personal Information.
California residents also have a right to opt-out of the sale of their Personal Information by a business and a right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of their rights under the CCPA.
No sale of Personal Information. GroupFlow does NOT sell (as such term is defined in the CCPA) your Personal Information to third parties, and GroupFlow has not sold Personal Information in the past.
No Discrimination. GroupFlow does not discriminate against any User for exercising their rights under the CCPA.
California consumers can exercise their CCPA rights directly or through an authorized agent by contacting us at email@example.com. Please note: in order to protect your accounts and Personal Information and safeguard your privacy rights, we will verify your deletion and access requests, and to that extent, we may ask you for additional information or documentation (depending on the case), such as account related information, and, in some cases, billing information used to purchase paid Services, and a copy of documents that can assist with verifying your identity.
Such identification documentation (if requested) will be used only for verification purposes and we will delete it after your request is processed.
The following instructions apply to Personal Information we may collect from California residents on or through our Services.
Right to Know: If you want to exercise your right to know or receive a copy or access the Personal Information that you have stored with us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to Deletion: If you want to exercise your right to request deletion of any of your Personal Information that you have stored with us, please contact us at email@example.com.
Once we receive and verify your consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records unless an exception applies. We will make reasonable efforts to honor your request promptly and consistent with requirements under applicable law.
Please note that permanently deleting your GroupFlow account erases all of your Personal Information from GroupFlow's databases. After completing this process, you can no longer use any of your GroupFlow Services using your account, and all its data will be removed permanently, and GroupFlow will not be able to restore your account or retrieve your data in the future. Additionally, if you contact our support channels in the future, the system will not recognize your account, and support agents will not be able to locate the deleted account.
If you cannot access your GroupFlow account or if you wish to exercise your CCPA rights through an authorized agent operating on your behalf, you, or your authorized agent (as applicable) may send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. To process your request, in order to protect your account and Personal Information, we may ask you or your authorized agent for the verifying information detailed above, which may vary according to the circumstances of your request. Authorized agents will also need to provide GroupFlow with a copy of your signed authorization designating them as their agent.
Our Service is provided from within the United States and subject to state and federal laws of the United States. If you are located outside the United States, your Personal Data is being transferred to, stored, used, and shared in the United States.
We have no liability or responsibility for the privacy policies or practices of our Hosts or other actions of any Integrated Service that may be enabled within the Service.
