HeyKiki allows you to pursue and improve upon existing interests and learn new ones while getting to know like-minded people to make life exciting. Our services let users make connections with practice buddies and instructors to schedule individual or group activities based on location and enable instructors to gain access to a broad, targeted network of members. HeyKiki provides a safe and secure environment for you to share and connect with members.
In the registration process, we collect registration information from our users, including name and password, and contact information such as email. Each of these different types of information is used to provide users with access to our resources, including without limitation instructor class postings, practice buddy postings and the ability for users to contact instructors and practice buddies (collectively, the "Service"). Registration information is used to authenticate users and recall their profile pages, and contact information is used to provide information on Service updates.
Information such as your full name, profile photo, and any personally identifiable information you have included in your profile may be shown to members. Your full name may be used when you send an email notification to a member (such as in an invitation, or when sharing a posting). We may also use your Email Address to send you updates or news regarding HeyKiki. Additionally, we use your Email Address to contact you on behalf of members (such as when someone sends you a personal message or contacts you via HeyKiki).
You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address) via profiles, messages, forums, postings, or in other areas of HeyKiki, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of HeyKiki. PLEASE DO NOT POST ON HEYKIKI OR ANY OTHER AREAS ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU EXPECT TO KEEP PRIVATE.
If you would like to remove your information from HeyKiki, you can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If your information has been indexed by a search engine (e.g., Google.com), please note that it may take some time for such search engine to remove it from it index, and that such removal from the search engine is outside of HeyKiki’s control.
HeyKiki may also collect and analyze from visitors and users certain information regarding the use of the Service and HeyKiki activity. Information collected may include but is not limited to HeyKiki traffic volume, frequency of visits, type and time of transactions, type of browser and operating system, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, etc. This information is logged to help diagnose technical problems, administer HeyKiki, and improve the quality and types of Service delivered. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of HeyKiki and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners.
With respect to payment/scheduling processes, HeyKiki does not partake in any of the payment or scheduling process between instructor and user. These processes are handled directly between instructor and user.
We may share your personal or business information as described below:
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We anticipate that we may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses may operate stores at HeyKiki, sell items to you through HeyKiki or offer you products or services that may be of interest to you. In other situations, HeyKiki may provide services, or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with a particular opportunity or transaction, and we will share user information that is related to such opportunity or transaction with that affiliated business.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, and providing user services. Without your permission, HeyKiki's agents do not have any right to use personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Profiles: Profile information including name, age, sex and location is displayed to users publicly in connection with the Service. As part of HeyKiki and the Service, you may receive from HeyKiki and other users and partners of HeyKiki e-mail and other communication relating to your business and/or the products and services you offer.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personally identifiable individual information may be shared with third parties, and will be given the option to prevent the sharing of this information.
HeyKiki may periodically conduct user surveys. We encourage our users to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if a third party conducts the survey. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our customer surveys and aggregate it with the responses from other customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally-identifying information may be shared with third parties.
HeyKiki sites are collaborative, and may contain links to multiple third party sites on the Internet, including many that have different privacy and security policies and practices than HeyKiki. HeyKiki makes no representations or warranties about and is not responsible for the policies and practices of sites that are linked to by HeyKiki or its users. We urge you to consult the policies available on those sites to further understand their practices.
HeyKiki has implemented processes designed to protect user information and maintain security. Each registered user is designated a unique email and password which is required to access their user information. It is the user's responsibility to protect the security of their login information. HeyKiki's servers are located in secure server environments. Firewalls and other security technologies are employed to prevent interference or access from outside intruders; however, HeyKiki cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
