ShuttleCloud Corp., a Delaware corporation d/b/a Carbo (“us,” “our”, “we,”), is the owner of the World Base Chat applications and related products offered by us, including all beta services (collectively, the “Products”).  Your access to and use of the Products are subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy. By using the Products, you agree to the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy and you hereby consent to our tracking, collection, use, and sharing of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. 

  1. Information We Collect. 
    1. Information You Give to Us. When you access the Product, we may ask you to voluntarily provide us certain information that personally identifies (or could be used to personally identify) you (“Personal Data”). Personal Data may include, without limitation, some of the following categories of information: (1) contact and profile data (such as your name and e­mail address); (2) comments, and other information you provide on our private or public internet-based community sites and user forums, and (3) other information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including without limitation, unique identifiers such as passwords, and personal information that you send to us. You may still access and use some aspects of the Products if you choose not to provide us with any Personal Data, but the features of the Products that require your Personal Data will not be accessible to you. We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Data, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent and share this information with our business partners in order to provide the Products to you and as otherwise set forth herein.
    2. Information Gathered from Your Use of the Products. We automatically collect certain data when you use the Products such as (1) IP address; (2) domain server; (3) type of device(s) used to access the Products; (4) web browser(s) used to access the Product; (5) Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) visited by you during your use of the Product as well as referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Products; (6) geolocation information; (7) beta use information; (8) session information generated and stored on your computer systems; and (9) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Products (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Data. 
  2. How We Collect Information. We collect information, including Personal Data and Traffic Data, when you interact with the Products, fill out a form, use live chat, or provide us with feedback on our Products, as well as through Cookies, Web Beacons, website analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, “Tracking Tools”) as described below. We also may collect information about you from third party sources.
  3. Tracking Tools.  
    1. Cookies. “Cookies” are small computer files transferred to your computing device that contain information such as user ID, user preferences, lists of pages visited and activities conducted while using the Products. We use Cookies to help us improve the Products by tracking your navigation habits, storing your authentication status so you do not have to re­enter your credentials each time you use the Products, customizing your experience with the Products and for analytics and fraud prevention. You can instruct your browser to refuse all Cookies or to indicate when a Cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept Cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Products. Please note that we may continue to collect information about your use of the Products even after you have opted out of allowing Cookies. For more information on cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
    2. Web Beacons: “Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect anonymous information about your use of our Products, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send you. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to monitor how many people are using the Products and for what purpose.
    3. Website Analytics: We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Products, including, for example, to record mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text that you type. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Data unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites which do not use their services. We use the information collected from these services to help make the Products easier to use and as otherwise set forth herein. 
  4. Information Provided by or on Behalf of Children. The Products are not intended for use by children under sixteen (16) years of age and children under age 16 are prohibited from using the Products. We do not knowingly collect any information from children under 16. By accessing, using and/or submitting information to or through the Products, you represent that you are at least 16 years of age. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, please contact us immediately.   If we learn that we have received or inadvertently gathered any information from a child under age 16, we will use reasonable efforts to delete that information from our records as soon as reasonably practicable.   
  5. Use of Data. We use your information, including Personal Data, to provide the Products and related support to you and to help improve them, including to contact you when necessary or requested and to prevent, detect and investigate security breaches and potentially illegal or prohibited activities, as well as for the other purposes specified in this Privacy Policy and as described in our Terms of Use or any other agreement between you and us regarding the Products. We may use information that is not Personal Data (including Personal Data that has been de­identified and/or aggregated) for marketing, advertising, product utilization analysis, or any other uses in our sole discretion. 
  6. Disclosure of Data. We may disclose and/or transfer certain information that we collect from you (which may include Personal Data and/or Traffic Data) as follows: 
    1. To Service Providers. We may engage third party companies and individuals to perform core services related to the operation of our Products (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, data storage, and database management services). We may also disclose your information to third parties who perform website analytics on our behalf. These third parties may only use your data as directed by us and in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and are prohibited from using or disclosing your data for any other purpose. 
    2. Business Transfers. We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, which may include your Personal Data, to another company in connection with a merger, sale, acquisition or other change of ownership or control by or of us (whether in whole or in part), in which case we will use reasonable efforts to require the recipient to honor this Privacy Policy and notify you via email and will post a notice within the Product alerting you to the business transition prior to transferring your Personal Data and before your information becomes subject to materially different privacy and security policies and practices. 
    3. Compliance with Law.  We may disclose such information  if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (1) comply with applicable law, regulation, court order or other legal process; (2) protect our rights, property or safety or that of another party; (3) enforce other agreements with you; or (4)  protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity. 
    4. Anonymized/Aggregated Data. We may disclose information that is not Personal Data (including Personal Data that has been anonymized and/or aggregated) to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses in our sole discretion. 
  7. Public Information. Any information that you post in public chat rooms or public message boards or reveal in a review of the Products to us or within the Product or on any other website is public information and may be shared or used by us for any reason in our sole discretion.
  8. Storage and Security of Information. The security of your Personal Data is important to us. We use a variety of industry-standard technical, contractual, administrative and physical security measures and procedures to protect the Personal Data in our possession or control from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure, both during transmission and in storage, as further described here: https://worldbasechat.com/security.  However, no security safeguards are 100% secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If we become aware that your Personal Data has been disclosed in a manner not in accordance with this Privacy Policy, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the nature and extent of the disclosure (to the extent we know that information) as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted or required by applicable law. If you are a resident of the European Union, we will also notify the applicable Supervisory Authority (as defined in the GDPR), as required by applicable law. If you have questions about our security measures in place, please contact us as set forth below.
  9. Controlling Your Personal Data. If you are a registered user of the Products, you may modify certain portions of your Personal Data directly within your account settings where possible, or by contacting us to make the required changes. If you close your account, we will delete your account and will purge your profile data from our user database. Please note, however, that we reserve the right to retain information from closed accounts, including to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce any agreement between you and us, and take other actions permitted by law. You must promptly notify us if you become aware that any of your account data is lost, stolen or used without permission.  
  10. Your Sharing Options. If you do not want to receive special offers, marketing communications, advertisements, newsletters or other promotional communications (“Marketing Communications“) from us, you may opt-out by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of all marketing emails, or by logging into your account and unsubscribing through the user settings within the Products. Additionally, you may disable all email notifications (including notifications of new reports) in your user settings within the Products. Please note that once we receive your request, it may take up to ten (10) business days for such opt-out to become effective. Also note that if you opt-out of our Marketing Communications, we may still email or communicate with you from time to time if we need to provide you with information or request information from you with respect to a transaction initiated by you, or for other legitimate non-marketing reasons. 
  11. Business Transitions.  As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or buy companies, subsidiaries, or business units.  In such transactions, customer information, including Personal Data, is generally considered an asset, but remains subject to the terms and conditions of any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, a customer specifically requests otherwise in writing). In the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, or a change in control of the majority ownership of us occurs, Personal Data may be one of the transferred assets.
  12. Links to Other Websites. The Products may contain links to third-party websites. A link to a third-party website does not mean that we endorse that website, the quality or accuracy of information presented on the website, or the persons or entities associated with the website. If you decide to visit a third-party website, you are subject to the privacy policy of the third-party website, as applicable, and we are not responsible for the policies and practices of the third-party website. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other website or digital service that you may be able to access through the Products, which may have data collection, storage and use practices and policies that may materially differ from this Privacy Policy.
  13. Updates and Changes to Privacy Policy. The effective date of this Privacy Policy is set forth at the top of this webpage. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any material change by posting the new Privacy Policy on this webpage. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page unless otherwise indicated. Your continued use of the Products after the effective date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Privacy Policy. The amended Privacy Policy supersedes all previous versions. If you do not agree to future changes to this Privacy Policy, you must stop using the Products after the effective date of such changes.  
  14. California Residents.  Subject to certain limitations under California Civil Code § 1798.83, California residents may ask us to provide them with (i) a list of certain categories of personal information that we may have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, and (ii) the identity of those third parties.  To make this request, California residents may contact us as provided below (see Contact Us). We do not receive any personal information from You (“Customer Personal Information”) as consideration for the Products or other items provided to You. We shall not have, derive or exercise any rights or benefits regarding Customer Personal Information. We will not sell Customer Personal Information, and shall not collect, retain, share or use Customer Personal Information except as necessary for the sole purpose of providing the Products. We agree to refrain from taking any action that would cause any transfers of Customer Personal Information, either to or from us, to qualify as a sale of personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (AB 375), as amended (the “CCPA”). The terms “personal information”, and “sale” shall have the same meaning as in the CCPA.
  15. Transfers of Personal Data. We are headquartered in the United States and have service providers in other countries, and your Personal Data may be transferred to the United States or other locations outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. European Union users should read the important information provided here about transfer of personal information outside of the European Economic Area. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer. 
  16. Contact Us. If you have any comments, concerns or questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at:  ShuttleCloud Corp., 420 Eagleview Blvd, Exton, PA 19341, USA or by email to: info@worldbasechat.com.

Cross-Border Data Transfer

Whenever we transfer your Personal Data out of the EEA to countries not deemed by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of personal information protection, the transfer, where required by EU data protection legislation, will be based on the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission which impose data protection obligations on the parties to the transfer.
