The Information Prava Collects Prava 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, profile photo, about you and mobile device information to Prava when choosing to participate in various uses of the Prava Service, such as registering as a user, updating your profile or requesting profile for your contacts or other users of Prava. In order to provide the Prava Service, Prava will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Prava 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 Prava 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. Prava 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 Prava Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: When you use the Prava 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, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. When you use the Prava Application, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any profile information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the profile of and various profile information.
The Information Prava Does Not Collect Prava does not collect names, emails, addresses or other contact information from its users' mobile address book or contact lists other than mobile phone numbers. Prava Application associates whatever name the Prava 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 Prava's servers and is not transmitted to Prava. We do not collect location data, but users may voluntarily share their location with other users in a trip via the Prava Service.
Data in the Prava Application can be classified into 3 categories. a) Data which the user specifically marks as Private, b) Data which by design, or by the user specifically marking as shared, will be available to intended user or users, and c) Data which the user specifically marks as public, which will be available to all users of Prava Application. For category (a) data, Prava Application does not copy, keep or archive such data in its servers. For category (b) data, they are sent via data service to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be a Prava user), if that recipient is online. If the recipient is not online, the undelivered message is held in Prava's server until it can be delivered. Once a message has been delivered, it resides on our servers. In the event where the user changes his / her mobile device and registers again with same mobile number, such user can get back all of the shared data. For category (c) data, they are same as category (b) with the addition that such data will be available to all users of Prava Application. Data marked under (c) category also resides on our servers and is available to all users.
In addition, Prava Application retains date and time stamp information associated with successfully delivered messages and the mobile phone numbers involved in the messages, as well as any other information which Prava is legally compelled to collect. Files that are sent through the Prava Application will reside on our servers, provided they are category (b) and, or category (c) data.
When Prava Discloses Information Other users of the Prava Service may see your Profile Submissions in a way that is consistent with the use of the Prava Service. If another user has your mobile phone number stored in their mobile phone address book or contact list, they will be able see your profile information. Users can also see your Profile Submissions through category (c) data irrespective of whether they have your mobile phone number stored in their mobile phone address book or contact list, or not.
