Cookies Information: When you visit the Traffia Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Traffia uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Traffia Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: When you use the Traffia Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the Traffia Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever information is sent or received, or if you update or request any information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the information was sent from and to.
2.2. The Information Traffia does not collect:
Traffia does not collect names, emails, addresses or other contact information from its users’ mobile address book or contact lists other than mobile phone numbers— the Traffia mobile application will associate whatever name the Traffia user has assigned in his/her Traffia profile — and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on Traffia’s servers and is not transmitted to Traffia. We do not collect location data, but users may voluntarily share their location with other users via the Traffia Service.
The contents of submissions that have been delivered by the Traffia Service are not copied, kept or archived by Traffia in the normal course of business. Traffia is meant to be an information sharing service, using data service through a user’s phone (either via cell network or wifi). Users type their submissions, which are sent via data service to our servers, and routed to the intended recipient (who must also be a Traffia user), if that recipient is online. Once a submission has been delivered, it no longer resides on our servers. The contents of any delivered submissions are not kept or retained by Traffia — the only records of the content of any delivered information reside directly on the sender’s and recipient’s mobile devices (and which may be deleted at the user’s option). Notwithstanding the above, Traffia may retain date and time stamp information associated with successfully delivered submissions and the mobile phone numbers involved in the communication, as well as any other information which Traffia is legally compelled to collect.
If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Traffia Site, or Traffia Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Traffia Site and Traffia Service. In particular, your license plate number is essential (but not a mandatory field) to your use of the Traffia Service and will be retained if submitted. Any billing information that may be collected from you will be deleted thirty (30) days after the termination of your account with Traffia. Any Personally Identifiable Information or schedule content that you voluntarily disclose on the Traffia Service becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the Traffia Service. Your name (as it is saved in other user’s mobile phone address book or contact list) may be displayed to other users when you update your schedule submissions through the Traffia Service and other users may contact you through the Traffia Service. We do not use your Personally Identifiable Information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your Personally Identifiable Information without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Traffia Site or Traffia Service changes or for customer service purposes). We may use both your Personally Identifiable Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Traffia Site and Traffia Service and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. We may use cookies and log file information to:
a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Traffia Service or Traffia Site;
b) provide custom, personalized content and information;
c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.;
d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.
3. INFORMATION DISCLOSURE
3.1. The Service Owner will disclose Personal Data under the following circumstances:
a) other users of the Traffia Service may see your Schedule Submissions in a way that is consistent with the use of the Traffia Service (for example, if another user has your mobile phone number stored in their mobile phone address book or contact list, they will be able to see your schedule submission if you have chosen to share this information with that user).
b) we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the Traffia Service.
c) we may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Traffia Site.
d) we may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or if such action is necessary to comply with national laws, international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened, or when we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing, to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of the Service Owner, our users and employees, or other persons;
e) we also have the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information which is necessary to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Traffia Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Traffia, our users or others.

4. SECURITY
We take very seriously the security of your Personal Data and use reasonable electronic, personnel, and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Traffia and you do so at your own risk.

5. CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY
5.1. This Privacy Policy may be changed or updated periodically. Please revisit this page to stay aware of any changes. Your continued use of the Traffia Site and Traffia Service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any amendments.
6. BANKRUPTCY OR OTHER MODIFICATIONS
6.1. In the event that Traffia is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and so on, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
7. GOVERNING LAW AND SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES
7.1. Any notices given to the Service Owner shall be given in writing in the Romanian language or, if in another language, accompanied by a Romanian translation thereof and will be communicated at the address presented herein through written letter with confirmation upon receive.
7.2. These Terms and Conditions of Use shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of Romania, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Traffia that arises in whole or in part from the Traffia Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Bucharest, Romania, respectively at the owner’s headquarters. Therefore, you agree to subject to the jurisdiction of Romania in the event of any legal dispute.
7.3. These Terms and Conditions of Use, together with the Privacy Policy at: http://traffia.com/privacy-policy/ and any other legal notices published by Traffia, including, but not limited to an end user license agreement, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Traffia concerning the Traffia Service. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect.
7.4. YOU AND TRAFFIA AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE TRAFFIA SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
