MetroBump is an online application that helps people business listings and local services they can trust by accessing information, soliciting and aggregating reviews. To accomplish this, our users add business listings/places and write reviews about business listings and local services that are posted to the MetroBump Site. These listings and reviews can then be accessed and read by other MetroBump users. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, a "user" is defined as someone using the MetroBump Site, and a "friend" is defined as someone you have explicitly invited to share reviews with you. To fulfill the purpose of our site, we need to display a limited amount of personal information, so that users are able to evaluate the trustworthiness of a particular review. By using MetroBump, you permit the collection and use of your personal information as outlined below in our Privacy Policy. You should visit this page periodically to review any changes to the Privacy Policy.

1. Information We Collect
MetroBump collects user submitted account information such as name, email address and mobile phone number to identify you and send you notifications related to the use of the service. MetroBump also collects user submitted location information such as city, state or zip. MetroBump also collects user submitted photos, reviews, and ratings of business listings, local businesses and service providers. Some information collected is not explicitly submitted by the user; we log your browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp.
2. How We Use Your Information
Information such as your full name, profile photo and any personally identifiable information you have included in your reviews may be shown to friends or other users primarily in conjunction with reviews you have contributed. If a person is a friend they can also see your name or email address in their list of friends. In addition, we may sell your reviews to third parties, in which case your first name and last initial and any personally identifiable information you have included in your reviews may be shown to users of such third party web sites. Your full name and email address may also be used when you send an email notification to a friend (such as in an invitation, recommending a show or when sharing a review). We may also use your email address to send you updates or news regarding our site, but you may choose not to receive email of this type by accessing the "My Account" tab of the web site and updating your notification settings. Additionally, we use your email address to contact you on behalf of your friends (such as when someone sends you a personal message). Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server, administer MetroBump, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. 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 the site 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.
3. Transfer of Information
We may sell your reviews to third parties.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information. MetroBump will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes.
