You do not have any rights in relation to other users' content, and you may only use other Riley users' personal data to the extent that your use of it matches Riley's purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your Account if you misuse other users' information.

This is the kind of content that can be expected on Riley:
content that you upload and provide ("Your Content");
content that members provide ("Member Content"); and
content that the Riley provides ("Our Content").
Content that is not Allowed on Riley
We want our Riley fam to express themselves and have the freedom to post whatever they please; however, we want to ensure the safety of all of the members in our Riley fam, so we will have strict restrictions on content which:
contains language or imagery which could be deemed offensive or is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
is obscene, pornographic, violent or otherwise may offend human dignity;
is abusive, insulting or threatening, discriminatory or which promotes or encourages racism, sexism, hatred or bigotry;
encourages any illegal activity including, without limitation, terrorism, inciting racial hatred or the submission of which in itself constitutes committing a criminal offence;

itself, or the posting of which, infringes any third party's rights (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights and privacy rights);
shows another person which was created or distributed without that person’s consent.
Riley operates a zero-tolerance policy for this kind of content. All users that go against this policy will be banned from our Riley fam. We care about our fam deeply, and want to ensure it is a safe place

You can also report a user directly from a profile or in chat by clicking the 'Block & Report' link.
Also, we don't appreciate users replicating any aspect of Riley App. We do not permit anyone to scrape or replicate any part of the App without our prior consent and is expressly prohibited.

Governing Laws and Forum
The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award and shall have the power to grant any interim or provisional measures that the arbitrator deems appropriate, including, but not limited to, injunctive relief and specific performance, and any interim or provisional measures ordered by the arbitrator may be specifically enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction as a final award. Nothing herein, however, shall authorize the arbitrator to act as amiable compositeurs or to proceed ex aequo et bono.

The arbitrator shall award the prevailing party, if any as determined by the arbitrator, its reasonable costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. No information concerning an arbitration, beyond the names of the parties, their counsel or the relief requested, may be unilaterally disclosed to a third party by any party unless required by law. Any documentary or other evidence given by any party or witness in any arbitration shall be treated as confidential by any party whose access to such evidence arises exclusively because of its participation in the arbitration and shall not be disclosed to any third party (other than a witness or expert), except as may be required by law. Any party who commences any judicial proceeding in connection with an arbitration initiated hereunder shall endeavor to have the judicial record of any such proceeding sealed to the extent permitted by law.

The categories of information we collect are [your name, physical address, email address, telephone number, photo/image, gender, date of birth, hobbies and interests, and health information such as any disabilities].
If you use or access your Account through our Sites, we collect your user name and password. In addition, if you allow the App to use your location data such data is not stored and is only used to help you identify other Riley users nearby. You have the option of choosing whether or not to reveal personally identifiable information (e.g., contact information) to us. If you do not provide all information we request, however, some portions of our Sites will not work properly for you, or you will not be able to register or access certain sections of the Sites. In the event of a complaint regarding your content or conduct on the Sites, we may also receive personal data about you from other parties or from other users or third parties who may communicate information to us about you in relation to that complaint.
You may also choose to provide us with access to certain personal data stored by third parties including [social media websites (such as Facebook and Twitter)].The information we have access to varies by website and is controlled by your privacy settings on that site and your authorization. You may (and may be required to) share information about or give us access to additional third-party websites or services.
User Generated Content
Riley is designed to make it easier for you to connect with other users and to interact with them. Your Riley profile and other information you make available via the App may be viewed and shared by Riley users with individuals who may or may not be users or via third party applications in such users’ discretion. Users might share information like the photos and messages you send or upload and any metadata provided with those messages, along with any comments or information you provide in connection with your photos.
When using Riley, you should assume that anything you post or submit on the App (e.g., private chats with other users and message boards) may be publicly-viewable and accessible, both by users of the App and non-users of the App. Additionally, any information that you may disclose on our Sites such as in [blogs, on message boards, etc.] or on other public areas on the Sites, becomes public information. Please exercise caution when disclosing personal data to other users in the App or in these public areas. If you terminate your Account, we may continue to show some of your content from these public areas in anonymized form.
If you send or disclose any health information to us when you submit user generated content on our forum (“Health Content”), you acknowledge that such Health Content may not be encrypted and/or may not be a secure method of communication, and you assume the risk of such unsecured communications. If you do not consent to our processing and use of your content, including Health Content, you must not submit such content to our Sites.
Information Automatically Collected
Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
We may also use technologies similar to cookies, such as Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). We use Google Analytics to collect anonymized statistics in order to improve our Sites. You can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on your browser. You can refer to the following links for more information: Google Analytics and privacy and Google Analytics opt-out browser.
At this time, we do not track your or any other user’s personal information over time and across third-party websites. We therefore do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals.
Upon downloading the App, you will be asked to turn on location services. If you turn these features on, when you use your mobile device we will collect information about WiFi access points as well as other location information about your longitude and latitude and may save your device's coordinates to offer certain features to you. This information helps us identify your physical location and we may use it to personalize the App and make it easier for you to interact with other users by enabling the information to be displayed and shared with other users choosing to view posts or users nearby. If you have enabled location services, but wish to turn it off, you can do so by switching them off in your device account settings. Even if you have disabled location services, we may still determine your city, state, and country location based on your IP address (but not your exact location).
Riley may use the information we collect from and about you to:
respond to your inquiries;
offer you our services or features;
contact you with information and promotional materials from Riley;

We may combine the information you provide to us with information from and about you that we automatically collect when you use our Sites.
Additionally, some of the information we collect may be shared with our partners, sponsors, and reputable advertisers to bring you offers of interest, and, if personal data is collected in connection with a joint promotion, it may be provided to that joint promoter for marketing and research purposes. If you prefer that we do not share your personally identifiable information with other reputable marketers, you may contact us by [Opt Out Mechanism].
Riley may share aggregate, de-identified/anonymized information with third parties for our business purposes.
If you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us, contact us at or on our Sites by updating your preferences in your Account. If you opt out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, from which you cannot opt out.
Riley may contract with third parties to perform functions related to the Sites. These third party providers may have access to your information needed to perform their business functions, but may not use or share that information for other purposes.
We use reasonable technical, administrative, and procedural measures in an attempt to safeguard your personal data from unauthorized access or use. No such measure is ever 100% effective though, so we do not guarantee that your personal data will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such data. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of you own password. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your Account has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us at [CONTACT INFO]. Riley encourages you to learn as much as you can about your privacy on the Internet. In the event we become aware of a data breach where users’ personal data has been disclosed to unrelated third parties, we will notify any affected individuals as required by law.
Third Party Websites
Our Sites may have links to Third Party Sites, which have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the practices of such Third Party Sites. Please note that if you provide any information on your own to third parties, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of your personal data. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.

A California resident who has provided personal data to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California User”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California User, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.
Riley does not share, sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure.

Some non-European Economic Area (EEA) countries are recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards. In the event that Riley transfers Personal Data from the EEA to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, we will put in place adequate measures prior to such transfer, such as by ensuring that the recipient is bound by EU Standard Contractual Clauses, to protect your Personal Data.
