Privacy Policy

April 1, 2014

Sungod LLC (Sungod) takes your privacy and the security of your data seriously. This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we collect when you use applications and services provided by Sungod (collectively "Services"), including, but not limited to the BR8KER application ("BR8KER") and other software applications (collectively "Applications") and the SungodLLC.com and br8ker.com sites (collectively the "Sites"). By using Sungod Applications and Sites you agree to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service, which is incorporated by reference into this Privacy Policy.

You agree that you are solely responsible for the information you share with Sungod and with other users of Sungod Services, Applications, and Sites and understand that you do not have to share phone numbers or e-mail addresses with others or with Sungod to use Sungod Services, Applications, and Sites.

All data that you share while using Sungod Services is processed in the United States. If you do not reside in the United States, information you share will be transferred to the United States and processed and stored using United States privacy standards. By using Sungod Services, Applications, and Sites, you consent to the processing of your data in the United States.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Service, please contact us at privacy@br8ker.com.

Information We Collect & How We Use It

The Sungod web site and BR8KER service, like many Web sites and client-server mobile applications, track basic information about their visitors which includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser and operating system type, timestamps, and referring pages. In addition, Sungod may collect information about which application functions you access and other application behaviors to improve the application and assist in troubleshooting application issues. Sungod does not use any of this information to personally identify specific users, but rather for administration, maintenance, service improvement, and aggregate analytics purposes. Sungod does not itself currently use cookies to store user information (although third party services that Sungod employs may - see Third Party Sites, below). In the event that there are changes to what and how we collect web site and mobile application data, we will update our privacy policy accordingly and post it at http://br8ker.com/privacy.html.

BR8KER Mobile Application Data We Collect and Use

To identify you to the BR8KER service and connect you with other users, BR8KER collects some personally identifying data about you.

Sungod will never share your name, email addresses, phone numbers, geolocation data, or voice recordings with third-parties, other than those required to facilitate the service (and as covered in this Privacy Policy) and other users of the service with which you communicate, without your express permission unless you give your consent or as required by law. In addition, data is encrypted with SSL when transmitted over the Internet to avoid interception by malicious users. By using the service, you agree that you are solely responsible for the information you share with other users of the system.

Sungod collects the following information about you based on the information included in the Contact that you select as your BR8KER Identity:

Your Email Addresses

Your email address may be used to:

At any time, you can opt-out of these messages by sending an email to opt-out@br8ker.com from the email account you'd like to remove from our messaging services. You are also free to use a contact with a non-primary, "throwaway" email account - but definitely use one that you yourself own to avoid user collisions. Your contacts may also be unable to find you (unless you provide them with this email address to add to their address book when attempting to contact you or you contact them first).

If you'd like to continue using your contact information in your BR8KER profile but would like to block BR8KER/Sungod from contacting you for feedback on services, email us at opt-out@br8ker.com and we'll add you to our do-not-email list. Note that we do recommend removing your contact information from your profile completely instead of adding it to the opt-out list - this way, we don't store your email address with your BR8KER account at all, which we believe is more private option.

Your Social Networking Account Information

Your Facebook and Twitter account IDs may be used to:

In addition, if you export messages using Twitter or Facebook, BR8KER may also have access to your Twitter and Facebook account information and have permission to post as you in order to post BR8KER messages you have selected for export. BR8KER will never post without your explicit authorization. To de-authorize BR8KER’s access at any time, log into Twitter or Facebook and de-authorize the BR8KER application.

Removing Personal Information from Sungod Servers

TO REMOVE OR MODIFY ANY CONTACT INFORMATION FROM THE BR8KER SYSTEM OR TO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT AND EXPUNGE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION: Contact Sungod at opt-out@br8ker.com from the email address originally associated with the account and we will verify and provide you with confirmation that your contact information was successfully cleared. If you encounter any issues or have any questions about deleting your account, contact us at privacy@br8ker.com.

Your Location Information

If you use the BR8KER geolocation feature to share your location information with contacts, your GPS coordinates at the time of use may also be sent to BR8KER and any third party provider/service that is required to facilitate the service (Google, Apple, your cell phone or wireless provider, or advertisers in ad-supported versions of the application). All personally-identifying information transmitted to these third party sites is subject to the privacy and retention policies of the respective provider. Sungod is not responsible for their use of this data. Some advertisers allow you to opt out of targeted advertisements. To opt-out of interest-based iAds, visit http://oo.apple.com from your mobile browser. To opt-out of targeted AdMob ads, visit http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/html/mobile-about.html from your mobile browser and click the Opt-Out links available. In addition, purchasing a "Remove Ads" BR8KER extra will remove in-app advertisements for as long as the extra continues to be installed (if you uninstall, you should be able to restore any purchased extras free of charge as long as you are using the same iTunes or Android Market account that you originally used to purchase the item).

You can control whether you choose to share your location information by changing the settings on your mobile device. On iPhone, iPod, or iPad, the first time you attempt to use the BR8KER geolocation feature, you will be prompted to approve or deny BR8KER access to your device's GPS functionality. On Android, you grant BR8KER permission to access your location information when you install the BR8KER application installation. Make sure that you have verified and fully trust the party with whom you share your location information (it's a good idea to exchange voice messages to verify them first!) before using the Maps page to send a message. Sungod is not responsible for any inappropriate sharing of location or any damages that may be caused by such disclosure.

TO AVOID SHARING LOCATION DATA, SET YOUR LOCATION PRECISION IN PROFILES TO REDUCED PRECISION. This only record which Maidenhead Subsquare you are currently in (Approximately 12 square miles in the U.S.) and no longer shows your position on other user's Map Screen. If your device's operating system supports it, you can also block BR8KER from recording your location on just that device. On iOS, you can do this by opening the Settings app, tapping Location Services > BR8KER and setting "Precision Track this device" to "OFF.".

Sungod does not permanently store your location on its servers; like your voice messages, they are temporarily stored on Sungod systems only until you and your recipient(s) have successfully exchanged messages. However, GPS locations may be stored on the mobile device, so that if you transmit a message on the Maps page with location enabled, and then disable it (or send a message from Recent Conversations), your contact may still see your old location data, but will not see your updated location.

BR8KER Privacy Levels and Controls

The BR8KER service has implemented several privacy controls and options to allow you to control your privacy when using the application.

Account Options:

Device Specific Options:

Blocking Users

When using BR8KER, you have the ability to stop any BR8KER user who has contacted you from continuing to send you messages. To block a user, select the conversation, tap the check mark button, then tap Block. This will block the user from being able to contact you. After blocking, you can optionally delete the conversation to clear it from view and remove all messages.

Data Security

Sungod is dedicated to securing customer data and, to that end, employs security best practices to keep your data protected. As part of the effort to keep your data protected, all contact information and voice data transmitted through the BR8KER application is encrypted with an SSL connection using AES-128 bit encryption between your mobile device and the Sungod data centers.

That said, there are a number of risks in transmitting any kind of data over the public Internet and allowing voice recordings to reside on a physical device, so UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU USE THE BR8KER SERVICE TO TRANSMIT CONFIDENTIAL OR PRIVILEGED INFORMATION OF ANY SORT.

Third Party Sites and Services

Sungod uses Google Analytics to track usage patterns of the Sungod and BR8KER Web sites. Google Analytics collects Web page access information, including but not limited to cookies, referring links, and your IP address. Google also receives this information and their use of it is governed by their own Privacy Policy.

Sungod uses certain trusted third parties to provide information technology services to us, including web hosting, maintenance, software features such as off-site transcription, and database storage and management. Your data may be shared with these third parties by virtue of being hosted remotely, but is only shared to the extent necessary for system operation and only pursuant to contractual obligations requiring these third party service providers to maintain the privacy and security of this data. In the case of off-site transcription, you are given a choice to use the feature and can disable it at any time after you have enabled it to stop this data sharing.

Children

Sungod Services, Applications, and Sites are not targeted to users under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect information from users under the age of 13. In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, if we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally-identifying information, we will remove it from our systems immediately. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and discover or believe that your child has provided us with personally-identifying information, please contact us at privacy@br8ker.com with information related to the account and we will remove the data from our systems.

Privacy Policy Change Notification

From time to time and as products are updated and new product offerings are available, Sungod, Inc. may find it necessary to update this privacy policy. We will publish any changes here when the privacy policy is updated.

We take your privacy rights seriously and encourage you to exercise them if you find it necessary as it relates to Sungod and Sungod's software products. If you require clarification or encounter issues, contact us by email at privacy@br8ker.com with any questions you have or write to us at:
