If you allow us to access your contacts, we may use that information to process your invitations and support your and their use of the Services.
Communications: When you sign up for an account or use certain features, you are opting to receive messages from other users, businesses, and us. You can manage some of your messaging preferences through your account settings, but note that you cannot opt out of receiving certain administrative, transactional, or legal messages from us. If you exchange messages with others through the Services, we may collect, store, and use them in order to process and deliver them, allow you to manage them, and we may review and disclose them in connection with investigations related to use of the Services, as well as our efforts to improve the Services. We may not deliver messages that we believe are objectionable, such as spam messages, fraudulent solicitations, or otherwise violate our Terms of Service. If you send or receive messages through the Services via SMS text message, we may log phone numbers, phone carriers, and the date and time that the messages were processed. Carriers may charge recipients for texts that they receive. We may also collect, store, and use information that you provide through communications to us, including from phone calls, letters, emails and other electronic messages, or in person. We may contact you, including by phone or email, using the contact information you provide us, make publicly available, or that we have on record. Our calls with you may be monitored and recorded for quality purposes.

This information may be shared with third parties, and third parties may share such information with us, for the same purposes. When you submit credit card numbers, we encrypt that information using industry standard technology.
Activity: We may collect, store, and use information about your use of the Services, such as your search activity, the pages you view, the date and time of your visit, businesses you contact using our Services and purchases you make through the Services, your personal interests, online interactions, requests for Services, communications with us and third parties, advertisement interactions, and any other activities when using the Services.

You may be able to limit or disallow our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings, for example by adjusting the “Location Services” settings for our applications in iOS privacy settings. We do not track visitors’ activities over time or across third-party websites and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, many third-party websites track your browsing activities in order to tailor advertisements and other content to your interests. If you do not wish to be tracked in this manner, then you should configure your browser or device settings appropriately.
Different Devices: You may access the Services through different devices (e.g., your mobile phone or desktop computer) and different platforms (e.g., the CatchUp website or the CatchUp mobile app). The information that we collect, store, and use through those different uses may be cross-referenced and combined, and your contributions through one platform will typically be similarly visible and accessible through all other of our platforms.
You can set some Cookie preferences through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect the functionality of the Services. The method for disabling Cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in your device or browser preferences or security settings. For example, iOS and Android devices each have settings which are designed to limit forms of ad tracking. Please note that changing any of these settings does not prevent the display of certain advertisements to you.

These third-party providers may share information with us that they obtain from or about you in connection with providing their services or completing your requests. Third-party providers may also share this information with their subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control.

In such cases, please note that the information you provide is being provided to the third party.
