Security and Privacy

Last Updated January 5, 2015

We at Omni Projects, Inc. (“Omni,” “we,” or “us”) created this Privacy Policy because we care about your privacy and we understand that you want to understand how the information you provide us is used, stored, and shared. This Privacy Policy describes how we gather information from you when you visit the Omni website, located at beomni.com (the “Site”), or access the Omni mobile application (the “Mobile App”), how your information is used and stored, and how we may use and share that information. By using our Site and/or our Mobile App, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use.

The Information We Collect

Personal Data. “Personal Data” is information that identifies you or can reasonably be expected to allow us to identify or contact you. Such Personal Data may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, birth date, or other personally identifiable information. When registering for an Omni account, you will be required to provide us with Personal Data. We may also collect Personal Data that you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, or submit your own content (e.g. ratings, reviews, or comments) using the Site or the Mobile App.

Billing Information. If you wish to subscribe to our paid services, including our storage and online organizational services (together, the “Services”) through the Site or Mobile App, you will also be required to provide certain information to us or our third-party payment processors. Such information may include credit or debit card information and similar data (collectively, “Billing Information”).

Other Information Automatically Collected. We may also collect additional information, including: (i) information that we automatically collect when you visit the Site using analytics tools, such as your IP address, Internet service provider, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time of your visit, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Site you visit, number of links you click while in the Site, and similar information concerning your use of the Site; (ii) additional information that you voluntarily provide to us regarding your use and interest in our programs, offers, products, and services; and (iii) information collected by our cookies (see below) (collectively, “Other Information”).

Cookies. Cookies are small text files that a website may store on a user’s device. Cookies can enhance your online experience by automatically saving your preferences. We use cookies because they help us provide you with a better online experience. The information we may collect through the use of cookies allows us to understand how to better serve your needs. Cookies are generally not tied to your personally identifiable information, but we may link cookies to such information, in which case we will treat it as Personal Data. If you object to the use of cookies for any reason, you may set your Internet browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it. If you decline to receive cookies, however, some aspects of the Site or Services may not work for you.

The use of cookies by our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company, and service providers is not covered by our privacy policy. We may not have access to or control over these cookies.

Device Information. When you use the Mobile App or access the Site by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier. Device identifiers are small files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Site, and may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Site. Some features of the Mobile App, Site or Services may not function properly if you disable or impair our access to or use of device identifiers.

We use the information described above to:

  • provide you access to and use of the Site, Mobile App and Services, including:

In particular:

  • Third Party Service Providers. We sometimes hire other service providers to perform certain business-related functions (“Contractors”). We may share your Personal Data and Billing Information with our Contractors in order to enable them to perform these functions such as process payments, pick up your Belongings, transport the Belongings, store the Belongings, maintain databases and other related services. When we employ Contractors, we require them to use Personal Data and Billing Information only in connection with the services they perform for us.

Pixel tags enable us, and these third parties, to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the tagged site in order to display tailored advertisements and enable other features.
  • Affiliates and Business Partners. In an ongoing effort to better understand our users and our Site, we might analyze the Other Information in aggregate form in a way that does not personally identify any one user (“Aggregated Information”). We may use Aggregated Information to conduct research on our end users’ demographics, interests, and behaviors or to otherwise operate or improve our business and we may share Aggregated Information with our affiliates, agents, and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our products and the Site to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
