With your permission, we may also access your photo or camera roll. We also collect information from third parties, for example, our business partners.


As you navigate through our mobile application or website, we may use automatic data collection technologies, including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • referral/exit pages;

We also collect information about the details of your visits to our website or mobile application, including location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of smart device or computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.
The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include Personal Information. We use this data to improve our mobile application and website and our service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide Personal Information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your Personal Information.

Where you have consented to Vibemap’s Privacy Policy including processing of your information, you may withdraw that consent at any time and opt out of certain processing activities, such as targeted marketing communications. Even if you opt out, we may still collect and use information regarding your activities on our websites and/or information from the advertisements on third party websites for non-interest-based advertising purposes, such as to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.

Vibemap utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our website or mobile application is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on Vibemap, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Pages of our website and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit Vibemap, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

We also may use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. We reserve the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.


Some content or applications, including advertisements, on Vibemap are served by third parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use Vibemap. The information they collect may be associated with your Personal Information or they may collect information, including Personal Information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.


We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as set forth in our DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION section below.

In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all emails sent from our organization will clearly state who the email is from and provide clear information on how to contact us at privacy@vibemap.com. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us. In addition, you can decide to stop getting push notifications by updating your settings.


We use Personal Information for purposes of customizing your Vibemap experience based on your location and your onsite and offsite behavior; presenting Vibemap and its contents to you, including providing you with information, offers and marketing materials; providing you with information about your subscription; identifying you across different browser sessions and devices; providing customer service; and making available other items and services to you.

We may use this information to create non-directly identifiable information that we may use alone or in the aggregate with information obtained from other sources as set forth herein in order to:

  • Help us to optimally deliver our existing services;
  • To develop new products and services;
  • For research and internal analysis;

For instance, from time to time, Vibemap may perform research (online and offline) via surveys. We may engage third-party service providers to conduct such surveys on our behalf (all survey responses are voluntary). The survey responses may be utilized to:

  • Determine the effectiveness of our services,
  • Perform various types of communications, advertising campaigns, and/or promotional activities.
  • Learn more about our members and potential members and their individual and collective needs

We use information collected through the use of Tracking Technologies to:

  • Remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit our website or our mobile application;
  • Authenticate your access;
  • Keep track of your in-app specified preferences or choices;
  • Display a personalized browsing history

  • Record your device’s location and movements;
  • Identify and contact you across multiple devices;
  • Provide and monitor the effectiveness of our services and our marketing campaigns;

  • Provide specific technical support (diagnose or fix technology problems reported by our members or engineers that are associated with certain IP addresses or User IDs;
  • Detect or prevent fraud or other harmful activities;
  • Automatically update our mobile application on your system and related devices; and

As a general rule, we do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action.

However, we may disclose your Personal Information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, when necessary to enforce our terms of service or any other agreement between you and us.
We also may provide your information to any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our asserts and/or business.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it to comply with any court order or other legal obligation or for the protection of our legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
We may disclose your Personal Information to our vendors and consultants who perform services on our behalf or who help us provide our services, such as accounting, managerial, technical, email or chat services, marketing or analytic services, fraud prevention, bot detection, web hosting, and to other third-party partners or service providers who contractually agree to process Personal Information solely as necessary to provide services or features to our members on our behalf.

Vibemap’s business partners, such as Placer.ai, provide important services to us as our service provider as well as have the right to commercialize aggregated data for certain purposes while also upholding your privacy. In particular, Placer.ai is an analytics company focused on places of interest. Placer processes data on our behalf to provide important insights into places visited and also has the right to monetize solely aggregated data, again about places visited. You may opt-out of Placer’s independent monetization of your data—even in aggregated form–by opting out of data sales by writing us at privacy@vibemap.com with the subject line “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” or completing “Do Not Sell My Information” form.

At this time, we do not disclose Personal Information related to individuals who access our website or mobile application from the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), Switzerland, the United Kingdom (the “UK”), or Korea to third parties for their independent marketing and/or monetization purposes. If we decide to disclose such personal data of EEA, Swiss, the UK, or Korean residents in the future for third-party independent use, individuals will first have the opportunity to provide opt-in consent.
We will never disclose your telephone number (in a non-obfuscated format) with any of our third-party business partners, vendors, or consultants for their independent SMS marketing purposes without your explicit, affirmative opt-in consent.

We may share with third parties, including advertisers and service providers, anonymized, aggregated and/or anonymous data we collect about you and other members, such as de-identified demographic information, de-identified location information, and information about the computer or device from which you access our website and/or our mobile application or the results of hashing your email address.


We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. We cannot guarantee, and you cannot reasonably expect that our databases will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unlawful interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email and doing so is at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on Vibemap may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.

We have implemented appropriate standards to reduce the risk of unauthorized or unlawful access to your Personal Information. No security system is impenetrable, and we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of our systems and your information.

We will never send you unsolicited messages or contact you by phone requesting sensitive information. This may include account ID, password, payment, or national ID numbers. Please note that emails and other communications you send to us are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to share any sensitive information through these means.

If any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify the impacted individuals and take steps in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

We may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

You are responsible for the secrecy of your password and ensuring the email address associated with your account(s) is accurate. We use your email address to contact you about service updates, changes to our policies, and account activities such as requests for your information. We recommend using a strong password unique to this service. If you believe your account has been compromised, change your password immediately via the applicable app or website.


Our website or mobile application may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit other websites, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those other websites, and it is your responsibility to review the privacy policies at those websites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies.


We define a Paid Partnership as any content on Vibemap that features or is influenced by a business partner for an exchange of value, such as if a business partner has paid or otherwise incentivized a user to save the content.

All Paid Partnerships must disclose the commercial nature of their content. In addition to abiding by the Community Guidelines, users that participate in Paid Partnerships are responsible for complying with:

All applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to, all advertising laws and Federal Trade Commission regulations including the FTC’s Endorsement Guidelines.

All applicable disclosures required to indicate the commercial nature of your content.

Promoted content must also abide by our Standards of Decorum.

To prevent inauthentic content and behavior make sure you’re sharing relevant content to relevant places and events, keep the content of what you share high-quality and avoid spamming others.

Share content you have an authentic interest in. Don’t incentivize or pay people to distribute content in large volumes. For example, a business can’t pay people directly for each place or event where they leave vibes and tips. It is acceptable for a business to pay someone to curate their shared content and promote their places and events. It’s also encouraged for businesses to incentivize customers in ways that are in accordance with Vibemap’s mission.


Affiliate links help content creators measure their contributors’ impact and get paid for the work that they do to bring inspiring content to Vibemap. However, affiliate programs can be targeted by spammers trying to make money by abusing the program and manipulating the Vibemap platform. Affiliates must always follow our Paid Partnership Standards. In general, each individual place should operate only one Vibemap account. That account should be that place’s authentic presence on Vibemap. Affiliate content should be original and add unique value for Vibemap. Be transparent about the commercial nature of your content. Don’t use shorteners or redirectors that make the destination domain of a link unclear or that redirect for the purpose of hiding an affiliate parameter. Don’t try to artificially manipulate Vibemap algorithms or traffic.


It is our policy to post any changes we make to our privacy policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ Personal Information, we will notify you by email to the email address specified in your account and/or through a notice on the website home page. The date this Privacy Policy was last revised is identified at the bottom of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active, and deliverable email address for you and for periodically visiting our website and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
