We at FLYCELL, INC. ("Flycell") know how much you value your privacy, so we make sure that your privacy is protected any time you are using our Services. Flycell (www.flycell.com) operates this on the World Wide Web. You do need to give us some personal information so we are able to process your orders and requests. However, we want you to know what information we need, why we need it, and how we make sure that your information is protected. We want you to be able to enjoy your Flycell experience safely and privately.
When you sign up with Flycell, you establish a password-protected personal account for ordering goods and services and participating in online social networks. Flycell is a PAY Site, i.e., the goods and services offered by Flycell are not free. Flycell also operates a social networking Site free of charge (collectively, the Services).
Please note that information you provide in an optional public profile can be viewed by anyone, and can potentially be used to contact you or send you unsolicited messages. You should not post personally identifiable information in public areas of our Site, and this policy does not cover information posted in such areas.
In order to establish your private Flycell account and/or place an order with Flycell, we need some personal information from you. This information may include contact information (such as name, email, cell phone number and address) and certain billing information, like a new cell phone number or change of carrier.
We may occasionally request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and mailing address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Flycell Service.

Our Site may provide you with the opportunity to refer your friends, family members or relatives to the Flycell Services. For this feature of our Site to work, we need to collect your friends and families' email addresses. The email addresses we collect in this context are not used for any other purpose other than to send a one-time referral. Should you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend using our Tell-A-Friend feature about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site.

Your friend may contact us at http://www.flycell.com/support to request that we remove this information from our database.
Flycell operates sites on behalf of some of its customers (for example, other businesses that contract with us to operate mobile storefronts or other services for them). When we operate Sites on behalf of such customers, we may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) to them when you provide it to us as part of registering for those sites or "opting in" for promotions, programs or offerings from those customers. Our customers will use and disclose the information we provide them pursuant to their own policies regarding such information. Flycell also maintains channels and other features on Flycell's own Sites in cooperation with third parties (e.g., to feature the work of certain musicians or other artists, or record labels/publishers), and we may disclose your email address, telephone number or mobile identification number, and other personally identifiable information to such third parties when you provide it to us as part of subscribing to such channels or features. Flycell's customers and other third parties that we cooperate with will use and disclose the information we provide them pursuant to their own policies regarding such information. We recommend that you review those policies before providing us with personal information in connection with sites, promotions, programs or offerings from such third parties, and before subscribing to channels or features we operate in cooperation with third parties. In addition, traffic data and personal data may be used by Flycell for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for statistical analysis of users' behavior, for product development, for site improvement, and to inform advertisers of how many visitors have seen or clicked on their advertisements or viewed their promotions. In these cases, data is maintained and reviewed on an aggregate (i.e., group) basis. We may share this information with our customers and other parties, but when we do so it does not include personally identifying information. In addition, we use traffic and personal data to customize and tailor your experience on Flycell Sites, such as to help us display content that we think you may be interested in.
