Welcome to Nobleis’ privacy policy.

We do not compromise with your privacy and take the responsibility you have entrusted us very seriously by working hard to keep your information safe and secure.

REGISTER OR LOGIN VIA FACEBOOK

Suppose you register or log in to the App using your Facebook account. In that case, you are authorizing us to access certain Facebook account information, including information you make available via Facebook, such as your friends list you have in common with other members. Your Nobleis profile and other information you make available via the App, including information you provide directly or indirectly through Facebook (i.e., your Facebook photos, your name, age, and other profile information), may be viewed and shared by members with individuals who may or may not be Users.  

VOLUNTARILY PROVIDED INFORMATION

You may choose to add sensitive information about yourself to your profile, such as but not limited to your religion, political leanings, Education level, looking for, and have/want children, among others. While you may voluntarily provide this information to us when you create your profile, there is no requirement to do so.  

SHARING YOUR PROFILE WITH OTHERS

If your interest is in Networking and not Dating, others may share a link to your profile page. On the other hand, solely you, yourself, may share a link to your profile under profile view so that others may view your profile page regardless of your interest.

Also, you may share any charity information page with others.

ADDITIONAL RECORDS

We will keep records of our communications with you, including any complaints from you about other Users (and from other Users about you).

We will keep records of your favorite charity, profile likes, profile blocks, donations’ amount made by you to any particular charities, contributions made by other users to your favorite charity, your Accept, Decline, Counter Offer amounts associated with all charitable bids or offers.

RECOMMEND AND ENCOURAGE

We highly recommend and encourage all our members to think carefully about the information they disclose about themselves in ABOUT ME, FIRST DATE/MEETING IDEA, and WHY YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR CAUSE sections of Edit profile.

We discourage and prohibit putting sensitive information on your profile that is open to abuse and misuse. Examples include email addresses, URLs, instant messaging details, phone numbers, full names, addresses, credit card details, national identity numbers, driver’s license details, and social security numbers. 

VERIFYING YOUR ACCOUNT

For safety and security and to ensure users a safe experience, Nobleis encourages users to verify their accounts by inputting a four-digit SMS code sent to users’ mobile phone numbers. In addition, users may verify their email address by clicking on a unique link sent by Nobleis to confirm their email is valid and belongs to the users.   

Users may verify their identity by taking a selfie to prove that their selfie matches their uploaded photos and videos.  

The Nobleis selfie technology assigns a value to users’ faces, the shape, the exact length of your nose, etcetera, instead of typing in a password into your phone. In addition, selfie pictures will only be used for identification purposes and never posted on users’ profiles. Although selfie is highly encouraged but voluntarily, Nobleis takes a proactive approach to security and may force users to verify their identity through our selfie technology in certain circumstances. By doing so, we want to make sure users’ accounts have not been compromised, fake accounts, any malicious activities, robots, and cybercrimes get removed from our APP to prevent abuse.   

Additionally, you may connect with your Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, and Apple ID for additional account verification security.

We ask you to please ensure that your account details are up to date. If your phone number or email address changes, please don’t forget to update your account.

THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS

We use a third-party provider for phone number verification. We collect and use your phone number based on our legitimate interests for the prevention of fraud.  

On our website, we may include links to other websites and other content from third-party businesses. These third-party businesses may use cookies, web beacons, or other similar technology to collect information about you. We do not have access to or control these third parties, cookies, web beacons, or other technology that these third parties may use.

DELETION OF ANY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WHEN IT IS NO LONGER REQUIRED

In practice, we delete or anonymize your information upon deactivating your account (following the 30 days safety retention window), unless:

  2. To evidence our compliance with applicable law (for example, records of consents to our Terms, Privacy Policy, and other similar licenses are kept for five years).
  3. There is an outstanding issue, claim, or dispute requiring us to keep the relevant information until it is resolved.
  4. For our legitimate business interests such as fraud prevention and enhancing users’ safety and security. For example, information may need to be kept to prevent a terminated user from opening a new account for unsafe behavior or security incidents. Where this is the case, we always seek to minimize the amount of personal information used, and we ensure that it is kept securely from other users’ personal information. 

UNDERAGE RESTRICTIONS

Our services are restricted to users who are 18 years of age or older. We do not permit users under the age of 18 on our platform, and we do not knowingly market to children, minors or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you suspect that a user is under 18, please use the reporting mechanism available through the service.

TERMINATION OF YOUR ACCOUNT

If you post anything inconsistent with our Terms of Use, we reserve the right to terminate your account. If we discover fraudulent behavior of payment transactions of any donation amount, that would constitute a breach of our Terms of Use and result in a decline of charitable contribution and termination of the user’s account.  

If Nobleis finds content or actions that indicate breaches of our Terms Of Use, your account will be blocked. Any member whose account has been blocked will be notified and may contact us to contest the decision.

DISCLAIMER

By uploading and choosing to tell us sensitive information about yourself, you explicitly consent to our data processing and make this public to other users.

When you post information about yourself on your profile or through the messaging function, the amount of personal information you share is at your own risk.  

We pride ourselves on taking commercially reasonable security measures to help protect your information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or disclosure. In addition, we use appropriate security measures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as secured servers using firewalls. Sensitive and private data exchange between the App and its Users happens over an SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

Unfortunately, no website or Internet transmission is ever completely 100% secure. Even we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur, but here are some handy tips to help keep your data secure:

While we take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our App, member database, and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal data safe and to log out of your account after use, as you never know who may stumble onto your account.

Please don’t share your social media password with anyone else and change your social media password periodically.

If you ever think someone has had access to your social media passwords, please report it to the relevant social media platform and change your password immediately. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal data while it is being transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk.

Please be aware that photographs and videos that you post on the App may reveal information about yourself.  

When using Nobleis, you should assume that anything you post or submit on the App may be publicly viewable and accessible, both by Users of the App and non-Users of the App. Therefore, we want our members to be careful about posting information that will eventually be made public.

Even after you remove information from your profile or deactivate your account, copies of your information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, copied, stored by other Users, or shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. 

Deactivating your account may persist in backup copies for up to 30 days to enable restoration but will not be available to others in the meantime.

We expressly disclaim any representation or warranty, whether express or implied, concerning any breaches of security, damage to your device, or any loss or unauthorized use of your registration information or other data.

COVID-19 VACCINATION DISCLOSURE

Users may declare their COVID-19 vaccination status on their profile as a way to connect with like-minded people.  It’s important to know that the user’s vaccination status is self-reported and therefore unverified.   Nobleis does not routinely verify whether someone has been immunized or not.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

As Nobleis evolves, we may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be at Nobleis.com/privacy. Suppose we make a change to this policy that, at our sole discretion, is material. In that case, we will notify you, for example, via an email associated with your account or by posting a notice within App. By continuing to access or use the App after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

ABOUT US

Your access to the App, as well as this Privacy Policy, are governed and interpreted by the laws of the State of California, other than such laws, rules, regulations, and case law that would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of California. By using the App, you are consenting to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the United States and the State of California. You agree that such courts shall have in personam jurisdiction and venue and waive any objection based on inconvenient forum. You agree that you will not file or participate in a class action against us. 

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
