Up for Coffee may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

- User Provided Information: You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your mobile phone number, full name, profile photo, and mobile device information to Up for Coffee when choosing to participate in various uses of the Up for Coffee Service. In order to provide the Up for Coffee Service, Up for Coffee will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Up for Coffee users (“registered” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “unregistered” numbers, which are not stored.

- Cookies Information: When you visit the Up for Coffee Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Up for Coffee uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Up for Coffee Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

- Facebook Information:
During registration or account management, Up for Coffee may ask some Facebook permissions allowing it to perform actions with the User's Facebook account and to retrieve information. Personal data which can be collected includes the user's current profile photo and full name only.  For more information about the following permissions, refer to the Facebook permissions documentation and to the Facebook privacy policy.  https://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/permissions/ or https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

- Google Information:
Your current location may be sent to Google if you opt-in to Location sharing. Up for Coffee uses the Google Places API to determine nearby places. Information Google may collect is referenced in their privacy policy located at: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Invite and meeting reply data is collected for the Up for Coffee App and Service to function properly. Meeting data may include information such as place name, place address, date, time, sender identifier, recipient identifier, and reply status.

- Log File Information: When you use the Up for Coffee Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the Up for Coffee Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any status information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to.

Information We Do Not Collect

- Up for Coffee does not collect names, emails, phone number, addresses or other contact information from its users' mobile address book or contact lists. The Up for Coffee mobile application will associate whatever name the Up for Coffee user has assigned to the mobile telephone number in his/her mobile address book or contact list — and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on Up for Coffee's servers and is not transmitted to Up for Coffee. This means that if you have your friend's mobile phone number associated with the name "Jerry" in your mobile address book, that's the name that will appear for that mobile phone number in your Up for Coffee contact list. 

- Up for Coffee does not collect or modify any calendar events other than the events required to use the Up for Coffee App or Service.

- Up for Coffee does not track or collect your current location. Your current location is solely used to provided nearby place results.
