This Rumor Privacy Policy describes how The Rumor Group Corporation (collectively,Rumor,we, orus) collects, uses, and discloses information about you. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you access or use our websites, mobile applications, and other online products and services that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, ourServices), engage with us, or otherwise interact with us.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this policy. We may also provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to the Services or sending you an email), such as in connection with making material changes to this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.


  2. The information we collect from you varies depending on the way you use our Services. Rumor is a members-only application that connects approved members (Members(s)) with prominent brands (Brand(s)) to allow Brands to invite Members to events and otherwise connect with Members. In some instances, Rumor will engage with non-Members (Non-Members) to either consider them for a membership or invite them to certain events. When you provide your information as a Member or Non-Member, the information we collect and use is different from the information we collect if you are Brand or authorized user of a Brand. Below, we describe the different ways we might collect information from you.

    Information You Provide to Us

    We collect information you provide directly to us.


    For example, when you use our services as a Non-Member, you provide information directly to us when you sign up for emails or other communications from us or send us content relating to a Brand, fill out a form, or otherwise communicate or interact with us.

    The types of personal information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, social media handles, and any other information you choose to provide. If you as a Non-Member apply to be a Member, with your consent, we will collect the personal information stored in your device's “Contacts, including name, email address, phone number, address, and any other information relating to individuals stored in your Contacts (collectively, Contacts List).


    When you use our services as a Member, you provide information directly to us when you use our Services, register for an account with us, fill out a form, submit payment information, send communications to us or content relating to a Brand, or otherwise communicate or interact with us.

    The types of personal information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, picture, social media handles, and any other information you choose to provide.

    Additionally, we may work with a third-party payment processor, such as Stripe or Apple Pay, to collect and process your payment information.


    If you are a Brand, we collect certain personal information from you and/or your authorized users of our services in order to facilitate our business relationship with you and provide you our products and services (collectively,Brand Information).

    Brand Information we may collect from you and/or your authorized users includes: name, business name, business phone number, job title, email address associated with your business, postal and billing address, and credit card or payment information.

    We also collect information a Brand chooses to provide or requests that we collect on its behalf relating to its own interactions with Members, Non-Members, or individuals that it serves (Brand Consumer(s)). Brands can interact with Brand Consumer's directly through Rumor's Services, including through chat tools or providing questionnaires. Brands must provide any required notices and collect any necessary consents before collecting or disclosing any such information (collectivelyBrand Consumer Information) to us. Brands determine what Brand Consumer Information they collect from their Brand Consumers, and to the extent Rumor receives that information, we do so on behalf of our Brands. In some instances, Rumor may collect information from Brand Consumers on behalf of Brands in conjunction with or at the same time that it collects the same or similar information from Members and Non-Members. This Privacy Policy applies as described to Non-Members, Members, and Brands, and the Brands' privacy policy will apply to their Brand Consumer Information, however collected.
