Effective as of September 3th, 2020.
This website, expulp.com (the "Site"), Expulp mobile applications for iOS, Android, Windows, and other platforms (each an "Application," and collectively, the "Applications"), and the various related services (collectively, the "Services"), are owned and operated by Expulp (together with its affiliates, successors, and assigns, hereinafter referred to as "us," "our", "we", or "Expulp").
3. INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USED BY EXPULP
When you use the Site or the Services, Expulp may use real-time GPS or other geolocation data from your web browser or mobile device (when you allow us to receive that information through the location or similar settings on your browser or mobile device) in order to provide you with location specific results. When you register with the Site, Expulp collects your submitted personal information such as your name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. Expulp uses that information to authenticate you when you log in, and to send you notifications relating to the Services.
As is standard practice on many commercial websites, Expulp also logs non-personally-identifiable information, including your IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from the Site. This data is used to improve the Site and Services, to analyze usage trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Expulp will not use the information collected in this manner to market directly to you. This non-personally-identifiable information we collect may, however, be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users generally. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
Your profile information, including your picture and name, is displayed to other people viewing the Site and Services in order to facilitate user interaction in the Expulp social networking community.
Expulp may also use your email address to send you updates, a newsletter or news regarding the Services. Expulp may send email messages which use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Site. When a user clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. Expulp tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this manner, simply do not click on the text or graphic links in the emails received from Expulp. If at any point you do not wish to continue to receive newsletters or other non-mandatory communications (i.e., communications that we are not required to make to you by applicable laws, regulations or best practices), you may opt out of the future receipt thereof by following the opt-out instructions contained in such newsletter(s) or by adjusting your communication settings in your account profile.
From time to time, Expulp or a partner may sponsor an opportunity, promotion, or contest through the Site. Users may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate in any such opportunity, promotion or contest. Expulp may also transfer your personal information to certain advertising partners if you have explicitly requested to receive information from such advertisers. It will be made clear to you at the point of collection of such information who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply thereto.
Expulp may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide a more valuable service. Expulp also collects information regarding customer activities on our Site, and on related Services. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our Site and Services are of most interest to them.
In cases where you use a mobile device to access our sites or use or applications, we may receive information about the location of your device. We may use this information to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings.’

4. GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION (GPS) TRACKING DISCLOSURE
We monitor, collect and use your wireless geographic location information obtained by our Site or any other Services through your computer or mobile device, to provide you with location specific results to your search and to maintain and improve the Site and or the Services. The results you receive in connection with your use of the Site and or Services may include results related to you and your specific geographic location. Please also be aware that persons with whom you share your computer or mobile device may log in to the Site and consent to our geographic location tracking of your computer or mobile device. If you turn off location-based services for the Site or the Services, we will not capture any location information. However, if you do turn off location-based services, Expulp may not function properly, since sometimes results are delivered through the Site or Services based in part on your particular location.
We also use the CloudFlare _cfduid cookie. This cookie is used to override any security restrictions based on the IP address you are coming from. For example, if you are in a coffee shop where there some infected machines, but your machine is known and trusted, then this cookie can override the security setting. This cookie does not bring up a user ID and nor does it store any personally identifiable information about you. For more information, please visithttp://www.cloudflare.com/security-policy.
We also offer an Expulp Browser Add-On (a bundle of code, resources and configuration files that can be used within your browsers where it is installed to add new functionality and/or to change the behavior of the Services on such browsers), which, if you choose to install it, will track your navigation within that browser and provide information regarding your browsing activity to us. We use the information received from this Browser Add-On to better understand your interests and to present you with content on our Services that we believe will be relevant to your interests. If you do not wish to take advantage of this functionality, or object to the tracking performed by this Browser Add-On, do not install it.
Our Site does not respond to "do-not-track" settings in users' web browsers at this time. However, there are various ways to opt out of interest-based advertising, such as TRUSTe’s Ad Choices, the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out Page, or you can also visit Google's Ad Settings to manage the ads Google serves.
8. CHAT, PROFILES, MESSAGE BOARDS AND PUBLIC FORUMS
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to Chat Rooms, Profiles, Message Boards or any other Public Forum, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications. We are not responsible for the personally information you choose to submit and make publicly available on the Site and the Services. Please think before you post any personal information online.

12. THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
Expulp user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. Expulp takes precautions to ensure that account information is kept private. Expulp uses reasonable measures such as encryption to protect private information that is stored within our database against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we restrict access to such private information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Among these measures, when you enter sensitive information on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which creates an encrypted connection between you and our systems. Once we collect your information, it is stored encrypted on restricted-access computers that are not directly accessible via the Internet. Please note that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however, and Expulp cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their personal data by changing passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and using a secure web browser. For any additional information about the security measures Expulp uses on the Services, please contact us at [email protected]
