1. How We Collect and Use Information.
Information we collect from you directly:
Registration and Profile Information. When you create an account, we may collect
your personal information such as your username, first and last name, birth date, email
address, mobile phone number and a photo, if you chose to have a photo associated with
your account. We may collect additional information from a parent in order to obtain
verifiable parental consent to allow a child to use our Services.
Data collected through use of the Services. After you set up your account, we may ask
for other profile and demographic information.
Device Phonebook. Base is all about communication so we may, with your consent,
collect contact information from your device.
Camera and Photos. You may elect to allow Base to access images and other
information from your device’s camera and photos. We’ll never access the camera or
photos unless you give us your consent to do so.
Geolocation. We collect your unique user identifier and your location through GPS,
WiFi, or wireless network triangulation in order to obtain your location for the purposes
of providing the Services. We collect the location of your “Bases” to provide other
members of your Base where you are. If you turn off location sharing in your Bases, we
will not share your location information; however, while you are a member of a Base, we
will continue to collect your location information in order to provide the Services. We
maintain location information only so long as is reasonable to provide the Services and
then destroy the location information.
Messages and User Content. We collect information when you message other members
of your Bases through use of the Services. We may also retain any messages you send to
us. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and
functionality of the Services and to communicate directly with you, such as to send you
alerts on the movements of your Base members. You can control your receipt of email
and text alerts by visiting “Settings” within the App. We may also send you Services-
related emails (e.g., account verification, parental consent notification, order
confirmations, change or updates to features of the Services, technical and security
notices). You may not opt-out of Services-related e-mails.
Information we receive about you from others:
Social Media. When you interact with Base through various social media, such as when you Like
us on Facebook or post a comment to our Facebook page, we may receive information from the
social network such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID
associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any
other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The data we receive is
dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review, and if
necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or
connecting them to Base’s website or Services.
Information we collect automatically through the use of technology:

enforcement, other government entity, or civil litigant; excluding our subcontractors) unless
required to do so by law or subpoena or if in our sole discretion, we determine it is necessary to (a)
conform to the law, comply with legal process, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding
liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any claims or allegations, or to protect the
security or integrity of our website; or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal
safety of Base, our users or others.
3. How We Protect Your Information
Base cares about the security of your information and uses reasonable and appropriate physical,
administrative, and technological safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information we
collect and that we share with our service providers. However, no security system is impenetrable and we
cannot guarantee the complete security of our systems. In the event that any information under our control
is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the
situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised
and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
4. Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit any personal information through the Services, in which case Base
may not be able to provide its Services to you.
Modifying Your Account Information and Settings: You may modify your account
information, update or amend your personal information, or change your password at any time by
logging in to your account or making changes to the social media setting you use to login to your
Base account. You can also stop receiving promotional email communications from us by
clicking on the “unsubscribe link” provided in such communications. We make every effort to
promptly process all unsubscribe requests. As noted above, you may not opt out of Services-
related communications. If you have any questions about reviewing or modifying your account
information, you can contact us directly at S@BA.SE.
Delete Your Account and Personal Information: We will retain your information for as long as
your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. If you wish to cancel your account,
please email S@BA.SE with “Cancel Account” in the subject line. Simply deleting the App will
not cancel your account.
Opting Out of Collection of Tracking Data: The only way to completely “opt out” of the
collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage
the settings on your browser. Please refer to your browser’s technical information for instructions
on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking and recording tools. (To learn more
about cookies, clear gifs/web beacons and related technologies, you may wish to visit the

5. Children’s Privacy
Base does not condition a child’s participation in any Services on the disclosure of more information than
is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Neither Base nor the service providers who provide support for the internal operations of the Services
collect personal contact information (e.g., full name, email address, home address, or phone number) or
any geolocation information from children under the age of 13. Base and its service providers may collect
information that is reasonably necessary to support the internal operations of the Services. In the event
that we have knowledge that a child under the age of 13 has submitted any personal information to us via
the Services, we may use the email address provided by the child for the sole purpose of responding to the
child’s question or carrying out his or her request on a one-time-only basis. We will not use the email
address provided by the child for any other purpose, and we will delete it from our records once the
question has been answered or the request has been fulfilled. If we become aware that we have
unknowingly collected personal contact information other than an email address from a child under the
age of 13, we will delete the information immediately. Features on the Services that are open to non-
registered users collect only non-personal information. Base may provide non-registered users and
registered users with the opportunity to send a link to material on the Services to friends and family
electronically. To do so, Base may ask for the sender’s first name, recipient’s first name, and recipient’s
email address. Recipient email addresses are used only to send the electronic materials to complete the
sender’s request, and are deleted after the request is fulfilled.
In the event that you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information from your child, you
can review such personal information collected from your child through the Services, have such
information deleted, and refuse to allow further collection or use of such information. Parents can agree to
the collection of personal information from their child and the use of such information without agreeing to
the disclosure of such information to third parties. Parents generally have a right to opt out of having
personal information collected from their child disclosed to third parties. In the event that you believe we
have collected personal information from your child, please contact us at S@BA.SE and a Base
representative will guide you through the necessary procedures.
6. Links to Other Web Sites and Services

browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link on our
website, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies
7. Your California Privacy Rights

Base does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising
and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep
track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they
present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your
browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Base offers interactive services which allow you to post content to share publicly. At any time you can
delete or remove content you have posted using the deletion or removal options within our services. If
you have questions about how to remove content in a specific service or if you would like additional
assistance with deletion you can contact support. Although we offer deletion capability for our services,
you should be aware that the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of
that content or information posted through the services.

the time designated by you to begin sharing and after the expiration time of the BASE, your location
information will not be shared with users of that BASE.

You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the

misappropriation of a party’s intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and BASE
are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class
action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and BASE otherwise agree in writing, the
arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any
form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the
entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding

with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related
Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The
Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

licensed to practice law in the state of Texas and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of
consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven days of
delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the
Unless you and BASE otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside.
If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of
documents you and BASE submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator
determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be
determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct
a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s
decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award.
Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The
arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section
below as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator
may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary
to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in
the AAA Rules.
