How Do We Share Your Personal Information?
We may disclose your Personal Information as follows:
When you sign up for content with a Host, we will share your name and email address with the Host.
We may disclose anonymized or aggregated information to academic or non-profit research institutions.
Any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas on the Platform becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other Members for any reason. Additionally, any Personal Information you voluntarily share with other Users or Hosts may be used by them for their own purposes. Superpeer is not responsible for the privacy or security of Personal Information you voluntarily disclose or share with others. You should always exercise caution when disclosing Personal Information on the Platform or with Users or Hosts.
Transactions on the Platform involving your billing and payment information are processed by a third-party processor, Stripe, and are subject to its privacy policies. We do not store any of the credit card or banking information that you provide to these payment processors. Please see our Terms of Service for more information about our payment process.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
To protect your Personal Information, we take commercially reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. However, no data protection procedures are entirely infallible. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% secure. Your transmission of your information to our Platform thus is done entirely at your own risk.
"In the FREE version of the Service, Hosts and Users can use “Small Meeting” mode (up to 4 participants). In “Small Meeting” mode, communication between participants are primarily sent through peer-to-peer connections, where audio and video streams are sent directly between participants and do not pass through any of our servers. Video and audio transmitted in the Service is then sent directly between the participants in a room and is encrypted (DTLS-SRTP) with client-generated encryption keys. In cases where a participant is behind a strict firewall or NAT, video and audio need to be relayed via a TURN server, but end-to-end encryption is still maintained.
If you have upgraded a room to PRO, you can choose to use “Large Meeting” mode (up to 12 participants). Calls using “Large Meeting” mode will use a dedicated server infrastructure to allow more people in conversation, and better stability. Your stream will be sent through video router servers which transmits it to the other participants in the call, and also transmits their streams to you. Streams will always be encrypted (DTLS-SRTP) in transit, but will be decrypted and re-encrypted when passing through the video routers. We operate an infrastructure of video routers distributed across the world, and you will be automatically routed to the closest one. The video router servers and all of our infrastructure adhere to strict security measures, preventing any eavesdropping or interruption of the video/audio streams.
