Privacy

We Take Privacy Seriously

People choose MeetVibe because they trust us with their privacy. MeetVibe is designed to protect your information and enable you to choose what you share. Exercise total control over what you share with the world. Easily adjust your profile to display your hobbies, profession, or interests.

Protecting the privacy and security of your information is a priority for everyone at MeetVibe. We work hard to collect only the data we need to make your experience better, and when we do collect data we believe it’s important for you to know what we’re collecting and why we need it, so you can make informed choices.

If you want to connect or share your proximity location and calendar availability with other people using MeetVibe, you can create a personal profile by providing a nickname (e.g., @john), display name and, if desired, a profile photo, and other information, such as a Talk to Me About line and Bio. MeetVibe stores this information with your account so that you can access it from any of your devices. Your user handle, display name, and profile photo can appear alongside with you calendar availability on MeetVibe.

Other people may also be able to find your MeetVibe profile using the information that you have provided. You can make the contents of your profile, like proximity availability or calendar availability, available only to those you choose. However, your profile information, such as handle, display name, photo are always visible to everyone.

Your followers, and who you are following are visible only to other MeetVibe members.

The phone numbers and email addresses of contacts in your address book are not sent to MeetVibe, and MeetVibe does not store any information from your address book. We do not retain any information about contacts who are not MeetVibe members.

Information you provide in your profile may be updated or removed by you at any time. Whenever you share online, you should think carefully about what you are making public. When you share from MeetVibe to other websites or social networks, anything you share is governed by the privacy policies of those other services.

When you use MeetVibe, we collect information about your calendar availability and events scheduled through our platform and associate them with your account.
