ShackUp, Inc. (dba “BunkUp,” “we,” and “us”) respects the privacy of its users (“you”) and has developed this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using our application or services or transacting business with us. By using our website or application (our “Service”), you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

Information we collect about you

General Information: We may collect information that can identify you such as your name and email address ("personal information") and other information that does not identify you. We may collect this information through a website or a mobile application. By using the Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse and retain data related to the provision of the Service. When you provide personal information through our Service, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and countries around the world.


Information you provide: In order to register as a user with BunkUp, you will be asked to sign in using your Facebook login. If you do so, you authorize us to access certain Facebook account information, such as your public Facebook profile (consistent with your privacy settings in Facebook), your email address, interests, likes, gender, birthday, education history, relationship interests, current city, photos, personal description, friend list, and information about and photos of your Facebook friends who might be common Facebook friends with other BunkUp users. You will also be asked to allow BunkUp to collect your location information from your device when you download or use the Service. In addition, we may collect and store any personal information you provide while using our Service or in some other manner. This may include identifying information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information. You may also provide us photos, a personal description and information about your gender and preferences for recommendations, such as search distance, age range and gender. If you chat with other BunkUp users, you provide us the content of your chats, and if you contact us with a customer service or other inquiry, you provide us with the content of that communication.

Use of technologies to collect information: We use various technologies to collect information from your device and about your activities on our Service.

Information collected automatically: We automatically collect information from your browser or device when you visit our Service. This information could include your IP address, device ID and type, your browser type and language, the operating system used by your device, access times, your mobile device’s geographic location while our application is actively running, and the referring website address.

How we use the information we collect

In general, we may use information that we collect about you to:

  • deliver and improve our products and services, and manage our business;

  • manage your account and provide you with customer support;

  • perform research and analysis about your use of, or interest in, our or others’ products, services, or content;

  • communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you either from us or other third parties;

  • develop, display, and track content and advertising tailored to your interests on our Service and other sites, including providing our advertisements to you when you visit other sites;

  • website or mobile application analytics; and

  • perform functions or services as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

In all circumstances, we may perform these functions directly or use a third party vendor to perform these functions on our behalf who will be obligated to use your personal information only to perform services for us. Also, if you access our Service from a third party social platform, such as Facebook, we may share non-personal information with that platform to the extent permitted by your agreement with it and its privacy settings.

With whom we share your information

Information Shared with Other Users: When you register as a user of BunkUp, your BunkUp profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Other users (and in the case of any sharing features available on BunkUp, the individuals or apps with whom a BunkUp user may choose to share you with) will be able to view information you have provided to us directly or through Facebook, such as your Facebook photos, any additional photos you upload, your first name, your age, your personal description, your education, your current and previous employers and information you have in common with the person viewing your profile, such as common Facebook friends. If you use voting buttons to say “yes” to a person, you will be able to chat with that person if they use voting buttons to say "yes" to you, e.g., when you have a “match.” If you chat with your match, your match will see the content of your chat.

Information Shared with Real Estate Agents: If you and your match choose to use the Real Estate Agent option (“Agent option”), you and your match, as well as the Real Estate Agent (“agent”), will all be able to see the content of your chat. Users will not be allowed to connect with an Agent without the joint consent of their match. There shall be no in-app communication between only you and your match’s jointly selected agent or your match and the said agent. If you choose to end services (“disconnect”) with your agent, you and your match will no longer be able to communicate with the agent. The connection has been closed. You will have the option to rate the agent, and must provide a rating (“review”) in order to have the option to select a new agent. The original information and three-way message will no longer be available to either match nor the agent, but the rating you have provided for your agent (in a one-to-five star (“star ranking”) and comment system) will be publically available. This ranking will only provide your first name, your star ranking, and any comments you choose to leave. All previous information, including in-app message conversations, may be stored by BunkUp for quality and safety control.

Personal information: We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated in this Privacy Policy or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. We may share personal information with:

  • Service providers: We may share information, including personal and financial information, with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulfilling orders, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, ad tracking and analytics, member screenings, supporting our Service functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Service. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.

  • Other Situations. We may disclose your information, including personal information:



    • In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.



    • When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement.



    • In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

How you can access your information

If you have a BunkUp account: You have the ability to review and update your personal information within the Service by opening your account and going to settings. More information about how to contact us is provided below. You also may close your account at any time by visiting the "Settings" page for your account. If you close your account, we will retain certain information associated with your account for analytical purposes and recordkeeping integrity, as well as to prevent fraud, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of our Service or our users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law. In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties' policies.

Your password is the key to your account: We urge to you to use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and to keep your password secure. You agree to immediately notify BunkUp of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security and we recommend that you exit from your account at the end of each session, especially where you are accessing the Services on a public computer. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify BunkUp if/when you desire to cancel your account. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this or any other provision.

How we protect your personal information

We take security measures to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, chats, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.

Information you provide about yourself while using our Service

We provide areas on our Service where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.

Children's privacy

Although our Service is a general audience Service, we restrict the use of our service to individuals age 18 and above. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use personal information from children under the age of 18.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law, our data collection and use practices, the features of our Service, or advances in technology. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this Privacy Policy, which will be posted on the Services under “Settings” and also on BunkUp.com, and you should regularly check for the most recent version, which is the version that applies. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you of the changes by reasonable means, which could include notifications through the Services or via email. Please review the changes carefully. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to this policy will mean you consent to and accept those changes. If you do not consent to such changes you can delete your account by following the instructions under Settings.
