Privacy Policy

Last Updated: August 16, 2023

This Privacy Policy explains how Bounce Inc. (“Bounce,” “we” or “us”) gather and use the information we collect from you when you use the Bounce Platform and the Services.


Undefined terms in this Privacy Policy have the same definition as in our Terms of Service (“Terms”). In this Privacy Policy, Partner and Customer are collectively referred to as “User”.


2.1. Information we need for you to use the Bounce Platform. When you use the Bounce Platform, we may collect your personal information, which includes:

  • Contact, Account, and Profile Information. Such as your first name, last name, phone number, email address, geographic area, and/or preferences, and we may link this information with other information about you, some of which will depend on the features you use. You may provide us with information in various ways. For example, you provide us with information when you register for an account, use the Bounce Platform, or send us customer service-related requests.

2.2. Information you give us. You can choose to give us personal information, which includes:

  • Information About Others. Such as payment information belonging to another person or information about another person. By providing us with personal information about others, you certify that you have permission to provide that information to Bounce for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and you have shared this Privacy Policy with them.
  • Other Information. Such as when you fill in a form, add information to your account, respond to surveys, participate in promotions, communicate with our customer service, provide your address and/or geolocation, or share your experience with us. 

2.3. Information we automatically collect when you use the Bounce Platform. When you use the Bounce Platform, we automatically collect personal and other information, which includes:

  • Location Information. Such as precise or approximate location determined from your IP address, mobile, GPS, or other geolocation features in your device, or other information you share with us, depending on your device settings. For example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet. We may also collect this information when you’re not using the Bounce Platform if you enable this through your settings or device permissions.
  • Usage Information. Such as the pages or content you view, searches, bookings you have made, additional services you have added, and other actions you have done on the Bounce Platform.
  • Log Data and Device Information. Such as details about how you used the Bounce Platform, IP address, access dates and times, hardware and software information, device information, device event information, unique identifiers, crash data, and the pages you’ve viewed or engaged with before or after using the Bounce Platform. We may collect this information even if you haven’t created an account or logged in.
  • Cookies and Similar Technologies. We describe this in further detail in Section 6.

2.4. Information we collect from Third Parties. We collect personal information from other sources, such as:

  • Third-Party Services and Sources. We may obtain information about you from third parties and sources, such as our Partners and advertisers.
  • Referrals. If you are invited to the Bounce Platform, the person who invited you can submit personal information about you such as your email address or other contact information.
  • Affiliates. We may receive information about you from one of our affiliates if you interact with them directly, for example through a support request. This may include your name, email address, and information about your request. 
  • BounceShield™ Protection. If you make a claim under the BounceShield™ Protection, we will receive information regarding your claim to process, handle, or assess your claim as outlined in this Privacy Policy.
  • Third-Party Web Beacons and Third-Party Buttons. We may display third-party content on the Bounce Platform, including third-party advertising. Third-party content may use cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with your viewing of the third-party content on the Bounce Platform. Additionally, we may implement third-party buttons (such as “like” or “share” buttons) that may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, not by Bounce. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
  • Other Sources. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, or information to help detect fraud and safety issues from third-party service providers and/or Partners and combine it with information we have about you.
