Keepin App Ltd. (“Keepin,” or “us”) provides an app that enables you to decide how you appear in your friends’ contact list by creating your own updated contact card and to let your friends update their information in your own contact list (the “App”). With Keepin, any update (new email, new job, new company website…) which you or your friends add to your contact card will immediately be shared in your respective contact lists and in Keepin’s “What’s New” feed.
You agree to our Terms by installing, accessing, or using the App or any of Keepin’s present or future services, platforms or websites (collectively, the “Services”). These Terms may be amended or updated by us from time to time at our sole discretion. We will notify you of any such amendments by posting a newer version of these Terms in the App and updating the “Last modified” date. Your continued use of any Services confirms your acceptance of our Terms, as amended from time to time. If you do not agree to our Terms, please stop using the Services. You are encouraged to review our Terms from time to time in order to make sure you are familiar with the most updated version.
Keepin may subcontract any of the Services to third parties provided that your rights hereunder shall not be impaired. In the event that any Services are subcontracted, we will remain the party responsible for the provision of the Services to you, unless specifically set forth in the Terms.
Keeping may change, remove or add any of the Services at its absolute discretion and without the need to provide prior notice of any kind.
Registration and Your Account
In order to use the App and the Services, you must register and create an account. As part of the registration, you will be asked to provide us with certain information such as your phone number, your full name, and your email. Additional non-mandatory information (such as your profession/position, company name, profile picture, etc.) may be added to your card. We recommend that your profile will be as complete as possible in order to make it easier for your friends that you are on their contact list to interact with you in a more efficient way.
The information you provide us must be accurate. Please note that we do not verify any information and are not liable to any errors or incorrect information provided to us by yourself. In case you change any part of your information, please update your profile accordingly so that Keepin users that you are on their contact list will be aware of these updates.
As part of the registration process, we will send you text messages, including among others a 4-digit code that you will need to use in order to complete the registration. Please do not share this code with any third party. Keepin is not responsible for any unauthorized use in your account and to any damages or costs, you may incur as a result. You hereby agree to receive text messages and, if applicable, phone calls (from us or our third-party providers) with codes and/or other messages and instructions to register for the Services.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for restricting access to your mobile phone, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity.

You may not create more than one account for yourself. In addition, you may not create another account if we have already disabled, suspended or terminated your account unless you have our written permission to do so. You will not log in or attempt to access the Services through unauthorized third-party applications or clients.
Building Your New Contact list
After you register and create your contact card, Keepin will begin to synchronize your contact list, update the information of your contacts who are Keepin users and perform various maintenance tasks such as deleting duplicates contacts. Please note that Keepin will never delete any information on your mobile phone.
In addition, Keepin will not import into the App any contact with illegitimate phone numbers (missing digits, non-valid numbers or area codes, etc.), contact with not a mobile phone number, toll-free numbers, etc.
Please also note that Keepin may limit from time to time the number of contacts that can be synchronized through the Services.
Your new and improved contact list will be created on the Keepin cloud and then transmitted to your phone through the App.
Here are a few key facts you should know:
(1) None of your contacts will ever get access to your contact list;
(2) No other Keepin user will ever get access to your contact list; and
(3) We will protect your privacy according to our strict data protection policies and in full compliance with applicable law.
In order to use the Services, you will provide us, as part of the registration process, with the phone numbers and other contact details of persons in your contact list (whether they are already Keepin users or not). After you download the App and register to our Services, any new contact person you add to your mobile phone (with a valid mobile phone number) will be also added to Keepin. Similarly, any contact person you delete from your mobile phone will be also deleted from Keepin. You hereby confirm that you are authorized to provide us with such numbers and contact details in order to allow us to provide you with the Services.
Please note that although Keepin support both ios and android based mobile phone, we cannot guarantee that your preferences, groups, and other information will be kept if you migrate from one operating system to another. In addition, we cannot guarantee that your information (including groups) will be kept in the event that you change your mobile phone number or your mobile phone model, including if you upgrade to a more advanced model.
Keepin helps you to network with other persons in your contact list using your contacts’ updated contact information which they choose to share with you and which may include among others important work information and external data sources (such as company sites).
Please be advised that any engagement between yourself and any other Keepin users using the Services is made at your own risk and responsibility and that Keepin shall not have any liability for any damages, costs or expenses which you might incur as a result of such engagement. The above applies to engagements through the Services and to any other engagements including in real life (via phone, emails, meetings, etc.).
You are expected to use proper language when engaging with other Keepin users or any other contact persons in your contact list and to act at all times in strict compliance with applicable law, including without limitations, any privacy and data protection laws, consumer laws and anti-spam laws.
You hereby confirm and agree that any messages (including SMS, WhatsApp or any other kind of communication through any third party platform or technology) which you send to any of your contact persons (whether Keepin users or not) are being sent by you personally and not by Keepin and that you will protect and indemnify Keepin from any damages or costs which Keepin might incur in connection with the same.

Information We Collect
Keepin collects information during the registration process to our Services and during the use of the Services. Some of that information is provided to us by you directly, some of it is being provided to us by third parties and other types of information are being collected automatically when you use our Services. Here is a concise description of these types of information:
Information You Provide To Us Directly
For starters, you need to provide us with your mobile phone number in order to create a Keepin account. You also provide us the phone numbers and other contact details in your mobile contact list when we start to sync your contacts and then on a regular basis when we are updating them.
When you build your Keepin profile, you are required to provide us with certain details such as your email and your position, and you may also provide us with additional details such as your physical address, your company or
Keepin also enables you to add statuses and to send networking messages to other Keepin users and to people on your contact list. Such statuses and networking messages may include information about your work or job search, travel plans, updates about your personal or professional life and any other information you chose to share with your network through our Services.
We may also create a favorite list of contacts for you in the Keepin App and organize it for you, and we will allow you to classify your contacts into groups (such as Friends, Family, Business, and other groups which you will define according to your preferences). All these lists and groups will be associated with your account information.
When you contact us for various reasons, including in order to use our customer support, you may provide us with information related to your use of the Services, including screenshots of your use of the App, additional contact details so we can reach you and other information you voluntarily provide us.
If we decide to charge any fees or to include other payments for our Services or any part thereof, you will be required to provide us with payment details such as credit cards information, bank accounts or other payment solutions information.
Information We Collect Automatically
Some information is being collected automatically. For example, we collect diagnostic, performance and maintenance information about your activity, your use of the Services, log files and other reports. We also collect device-specific information when you install or use the Services.
This includes information such as your mobile device type, operating system information, browser information, IP addresses and network information including phone numbers and device identifiers. If you use location features we may collect device location information.
If you have paid for any of our Services, we may receive information and confirmations, such as payment receipts, including from app stores or other third parties (including payment solutions providers) processing your payment.
Information Provided By Third Parties
We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, when someone who has your phone number and other contact details in his contact list joins Keepin, he may provide us with such information (just as you may provide us with the information of your contact persons when you join Keepin). When other Keepin users send you networking messages, call you or otherwise connect with you through the App or any of our Services, we may also get information about you.
We also work with third-parties (including suppliers and service providers) to help us to provide, improve, customize, support and market our Services. Such third parties may provide us information about you which was either directly provided to them by you, automatically collected by their services or provided to them by other third parties.

We use the information we collect about you mainly in order to provide you with our Services, to improve them, to customize them to your specific needs, to perform support and maintenance to our Services, to develop new services and features and to market our Services so you and your connections can have a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.
In order to provide our services, we will upload a copy of your contacts to our servers. Please note that we will handle and safeguard this copy in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
We also use your information to communicate with you regarding the Services, respond to you when you contact us, let you know about updates to our Services or to our Terms and other important updates.
In case we will allow any third-party ads on Keepin or any other commercial content, we will make sure this is done in compliance with all applicable data protection and privacy laws and regulations.
Please note that we may also use your information if we believe that it is reasonably required in order to be in compliance with any applicable laws or regulations, court order or other legal proceedings, requests from governmental entities, to enforce our Terms and policies, to investigate and prevent fraud or other illegal activity or for other security or technical issues including without limitations to protect you and our other users.
Information We Share
We share your information mainly as reasonably necessary in order to provide you with our Services, to improve them, to customize them to your specific needs, to perform support and maintenance to our Services, to develop new services and features and to market our Services so you and your connections can have a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.
We do our best efforts to make sure that the third parties we share your information with will safeguard your information using measures which are at least as protective to your privacy as the measures we are using. We also require that such third parties will use your information in accordance with our policies and instructions.
We share your mobile phone number and your other contact details and information you chose to include in your Keepin profile with other Keepin users which have your phone number in their contact list (just as we share the contact details and other information of Keepin members that are included in your contact list with you). We also share your statuses and network messages with other Keepin members that are included in your contact list and/or according to your preferences.
We may share and transfer your information to our affiliates and related entities or to any other third party in connection with a merger, consolidation, restructuring, acquisition of our shares or assets or any other change of control transaction, whether by operation of law or otherwise. We also may share and transfer your information to relevant third parties such as consultants and advisors as part of an initial public offering.
Controlling Your Information
We would like you to have full control over your information and to be able to manage it. You may change or delete information using our Services, for example by changing any of your contact details, professional details, your statuses or your profile picture through the relevant features in our App. You can also manage and update your groups through the App, which will change how you classify and network with your contacts.
If you want to change your mobile phone number, you will need to transfer your account to your new mobile phone number. We cannot guarantee that your setting, preferences, tags, classifications or other custom information or features will remain unchanged or will be kept after such change.
You may contact us at any time and request: (i) that your information will be deleted (including to delete your Keepin account); (ii) to change any information we collected about you; (iii) to know what information we have collected about you; or (iv) any other request or inquiry regarding your information, your privacy or your rights as you are entitled under applicable law from time to time. Please direct all such inquiries to email@example.com.
Please note that if you only delete the App from your mobile device without using “delete my account” feature, your information may be stored with us for a longer period. Please also note that when you delete your Keepin account, it does not affect the information that other Keepin users have relating to you.
