Privacy Policy for California Residents

 
 

  1. Data we may collect about you
  2. Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

    We may collect, use, store, and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:

    • Identity Data includes full name, username or similar identifier, profile photo, birth date, gender, sexual orientation, and government-issued photo identification (verified users only). Some information you choose to give us may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, for example, your sex life and sexual orientation. By choosing to submit special or sensitive information, you consent to our processing of that information.
    • Location Data includes city, zip code, and country.
    • Contact Data includes email address.
    • Financial Data includes payment card details. We store only very limited, if any, Financial Data. Otherwise, all Financial Data is stored by our payment processor and you are encouraged to review their privacy policy and contact them directly for responses to your questions.
    • Transaction Data includes details about payments from you and other details of services you have purchased from us.
    • Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, ISP name, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices you use to access our Website.
    • Device Data includes the type of mobile device you use, a unique device identifier (for example, your device’s IMEI number, the MAC address of the device’s wireless network interface, or the mobile phone number used by the device), mobile network information, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile browser you use, time zone setting, and IP address.
    • Content Data includes text, photos, videos, or other digital content you upload to our Website and information about the content you upload, including metadata that is provided with that content. Please remember that Content Data that you post may reveal personal data about yourself as well, including identifying information about yourself depicted in any photos or videos.
    • Profile Data includes your username and password, purchases made by you, your interests, preferences, feedback, and survey responses. Some information you choose to give us may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, for example, your sex life and sexual orientation. By choosing to submit special or sensitive information, you consent to our processing of that information.
    • Usage Data includes information about how you use our Website, products, and services.
    • Marketing and Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and third parties and your communication preferences.

     
    We also collect, use, and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data that will be used under this privacy policy.

    We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data) unless you voluntarily provide it. Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offenses.

    If you fail to provide personal data

    Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

     
     

  3. How we collect data about you
  4. We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

    • Direct interactions. You may give us information about you by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by email. This includes information you provide at the time of registering to use our Website, buying a premium membership, posting material, requesting further services, requesting marketing to be sent to you, entering a competition, promotion, or survey, or giving us feedback or contacting us. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our Website.
    • User contributions. You also may provide Content Data for us to publish or display (“post”) on public website areas or transmit to other website users or third parties. You submit Content Data for posting and transmission to others at your own risk. Although you may set certain privacy settings for Content Data by logging into your account profile, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of any website users with whom you choose to share your Content Data. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that unauthorized persons will not view your Content Data.

As you interact with our Website, we may automatically collect Technical and Device Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns as specified above. We collect this information by using cookies, server logs, and other similar technologies (see Cookies and automatic data collection technologies). We may also use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).
    • Third parties or publicly available sources. We will receive personal data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies or from third parties including, for example, business partners (including affiliates in any affiliate marketing program); subcontractors in technical, payment, and delivery services; advertising networks; analytics providers; and search information providers. We will not store or collect your payment card details.

These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council.

    We may use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences.

    We may use nonpersonal data for any business purpose.

  8. We may share your personal data that we collect, or you provide as described in this privacy policy:

    • To our subsidiaries and affiliates.
    • To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. Examples include payment processing, data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service, and marketing efforts. We may allow selected third parties to use tracking technology on our Website, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact with our Website over time. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use our Website (you can read more about how Google uses your personal data here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?fg=1). You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
    • To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all the Company’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal data held by the Company about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
    • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
    • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

    We may share nonpersonal data without restriction.

     
     

  9. Your personal data use choices
  10. We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal data you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your data:

    • Tracking technologies and advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Website may become inaccessible or not function properly.

    • Promotional offers from the Company. If you opted in to have your Contact Data used by the Company to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can withdraw your consent at any time by logging into the Website and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile or by sending us an email stating your request to [email protected]. If we have sent you a promotional email, you may send us a return email asking to be omitted from future email distributions. This opt-out does not apply to information provided to the Company as a result of a purchase, service experience, or other transactions.

     
    We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. But these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.

    Our Website may, from time to time, have links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates, or plug-ins enabling third-party features. If you follow a link to any third-party website or engage a third-party plug-in, please note that these third parties have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you give any personal data to these third parties.
     
     

  11. Accessing and correcting your personal data
  12. It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes. You have the right to request access to and to correct the personal data that we hold about you.

    You can review and change your personal data by logging into our Website and visiting your account profile page.

    You may also send us an email at [email protected] to request access to, correct, or delete any personal data that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal data except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change data if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

    If you delete your Content Data from our Website, copies of your Content Data may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied or stored by other Website users. Proper access and use of information provided on our Website, including Content Data, is governed by our Terms-of-Service Agreement.
     
     

  13. Cross-border data transfers
  14. We are based in the United States of America. For operational reasons, we may process, store, and transfer the personal data we collect, in and to a country outside your own, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as your own. If you are located outside the United States, your personal data may at times be accessible by persons who are located worldwide including in countries that the European Commission or other geopolitical regions have not determined to provide the same adequate level of data protection in your country, province territory, or geopolitical region. By sending your personal data or engaging with our Website, you consent to our transfer, storing, or processing, including the transfer of your data across international boundaries to jurisdictions anywhere in the world as allowed by local law.

    Residents of Canada are notified that the personal data they provide to us is stored in our databases outside of Canada, including in the United States, and may be subject to disclosure to authorized law enforcement or government agencies in response to a lawful demand under the laws of that country. You have the right to complain about our personal data handling practices. You may visit www.priv.gc.ca for more information about your privacy rights.

    If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, or the United Kingdom (UK), please note that your information will be transferred outside of those areas, including to the United States. Nevertheless, whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, Switzerland, or UK, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that the recipient third party agrees to contractual clauses or other appropriate safeguards.
     
     

  15. Data security
  16. We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

    The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

     
     

  17. Data retention
  18. Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Under some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use that anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.

     
     

  19. Children’s online privacy
  20. We do not direct our Website to minors, and we do not knowingly collect personal data from individuals under 18-years old. If we learn we have mistakenly or unintentionally collected or received personal data from an individual under 18-years old, we will delete it. If you believe we mistakenly or unintentionally collected data from or about an individual under 18-years old, please contact us at [email protected].

     
     

  21. Do Not Track policy
  22. Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that you can set in your browser. DNT is a way for you to inform websites and services that you do not want certain information about your webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information we collect and that is why we give you the ability to opt-out. But our Website does not recognize or respond to any DNT signals as the Internet industry works toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT. For more information about DNT, visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

     
     

  23. Your California Privacy Rights
  24. If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights about our use of your personal data. To learn more about your California privacy rights, see Privacy Policy for California Residents.

     
     

  25. Your Nevada Privacy Rights
  26. Nevada residents who wish to exercise their sale opt-out rights under Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A may submit a request to this designated address: [email protected]. However, please know we do not currently sell data triggering that statute’s opt-out requirements.

     
     

  27. Special Terms Related to the European Economic Area/United Kingdom
  28. If you live in the EEA or the UK, the following terms apply to you.

    Legal Basis for Processing

    We may process your personal data because you have given us permission to do so (e.g., by sending data through our Website’s contact or signup forms), because the processing is in our legitimate interests and it is not overridden by your rights, or because we need to process your personal data to perform a contract with you or comply with the law.

    Your Rights Under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)

    Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws concerning your personal data. Your rights may include the following:

    • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
    • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
    • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons that will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
    • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information that override your rights and freedoms.
    • Request restriction of processing your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
    • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information that you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
    • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

     
    If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at [email protected].

    You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to honor your request in these circumstances.

    We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

    We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will let you know and keep you updated.

     
     

  29. Withdrawing your consent
  30. Where you have given your consent to the collection, use, and transfer of your personal data, you may have the legal right to withdraw your consent under certain circumstances. To withdraw your consent, if applicable, you may contact us at [email protected]. Please note that if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you with a particular product or service. We will explain the impact to you at the time to help you with your decision.

     
     

  31. Changes to our privacy policy
  32. It is our policy to post any changes we make to our privacy policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal data, we will notify you by email to the email address specified in your account or through a notice on our Website home page. The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our Website and this privacy policy to check for any changes.

    7. Your Rights and Choices
    8. The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

      1. Right to Know and Data Portability
      2. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months (“right to know”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Right to Know or Delete), we will disclose to you:

        • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
        • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
        • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
        • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
        • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
        • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
          • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
          • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

         

      3. Right to Delete
      4. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (“right to delete”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies.

        We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

        1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted under federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
        2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
        3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
        4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
        5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
        6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
        7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
        8. Comply with a legal obligation.
        9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

        We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.

      5. Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete
      6. To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by either:

        Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information. You may also make a request to know or delete on behalf of your child.

        You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must:

        • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
        • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

        We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

        You do not need to create an account with us to submit a request to know or delete. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.

        We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.

      7. Response Timing and Format
      8. We will confirm receipt of your request within ten-business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the ten-day timeframe, please contact us at [email protected].

        We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

        If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

        Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

        We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

      9. Non-Discrimination
      10. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

        • Deny you goods or services.
        • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
        • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
        • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

        However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

      11. Other California Privacy Rights
      12. California’s “Shine the Light” law (Cal. Civil Code § 1798.83) allows users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make that request, please send an email to [email protected].
