Tambuaa 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, push notification name (if applicable), email address, name, billing information (if applicable) and mobile device information to Tambuaa when choosing to participate in various uses of the Tambuaa Service, such as registering as a user, updating your status or requesting status for your contacts. In order to provide the Tambuaa Service, Tambuaa will periodically access your SMS history, GPS Location data, address book, or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Tambuaa users ("in-network" numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as "out-network" numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.
Cookies Information: When you visit the Tambuaa 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. Tambuaa 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 Tambuaa Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

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 Tambuaa 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.
If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Tambuaa Site, or Tambuaa Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Tambuaa Site and Tambuaa Service. In particular, your mobile phone number is essential to your use of the Tambuaa Service and will be retained.
We may share personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Tambuaa Site. We may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with State and county laws (such as Copyright Law), international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual's physical safety may be at risk or threatened. Tambuaa also reserves the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Tambuaa believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Tambuaa Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Tambuaa, our users or others.
We do not guarantee that Tambuaa will be ad-free. We have intention to introduce advertisement into the product.
Tambuaa uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information collected from your device and transmitted to Tambuaa and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured Wi-Fi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Tambuaa Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Tambuaa makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Tambuaa learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Tambuaa may post a notice on the Tambuaa Site or through the Tambuaa Service if a security breach occurs.
In the event that Tambuaa is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the (hopefully) unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
