Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to all information collected or submitted on and all other software developed by, LLC ., residing online, mobile applications, or other, referred to in this policy as the "Site".
Your privacy is important to us. The information in the following Privacy Policy explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this Privacy Policy easy to find, we make it available by the "privacy policy" link on every page of our Site. We also include it where personally identifiable information may be voluntarily supplied or requested.
Information We Collect LLC is the sole owner of the information collected on the Site. We collect personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on the Network.
In order to use certain features of the Site, such as photo ad posting, location targeting of user Filters, following other users, or subscribing to an interest notifications, you must first complete a registration form and create a user account and password. During registration you provide us with your contact information (such as your username and email address). We use this information to configure your account and the services on the Site in which you will be using.
We may give you the option to provide basic demographic information (such as income, gender, and education, age, zip code) to us; we strongly encourage you to submit this information so we can provide our users with a better, more useful experience on the Site. Providing any such demographic information is entirely optional and is identified as such at the time of data collection.
We may also, during various points of interaction, collect geo-specific information with regards to your physical location, such as, but not limited to, longitude and latitude of your requests, network provider, etc.
The information we collect may be "personally identifiable" (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or "non-personally identifiable" (meaning it can't be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever we do business, including countries outside your own.
User Profile
We store information that we collect through cookies, server log files, tracking images, and third party sources to create a "profile" of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, including your search history, viewing tendencies, etc, to information in the profile, in order to provide you with an experience that relates to and tailors to creating the content of the Network for you.
We will occasionally send you information on new Site features, services, special deals, and promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications.
If you wish to subscribe to our email newsletters, we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe with each newsletter we send you.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt out of these communications because they are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account.
Server Logs
As is typical of professionally managed websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data for each user of the Site.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
Generally, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are, however, tied to personally identifiable information in conjunction with orders in order to help prevent online fraud.
We use a third-party tracking service that uses cookies and tracking images to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors in the aggregate. We use this information to supplement the information we gather from analyzing our log files.
Browser Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We do not store any personally identifiable information in cookies, but we may link the information we store in cookies to personally identifiable information when required for technical reasons.
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your web browser’s documentation.
We set a persistent cookie to help keep track of visits our users make to the Site. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on the Site. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use many areas of the site will be limited.
This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by LLC. only, and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers or other third parties. Some of our associated business partners (for example, advertisers) may use cookies on the Site. We have no access to or control over these cookies.
Tracking Snippets
Tracking snippets are tiny, transparent images or code that contain a unique identifier, very similar in function to cookie files, that are used to track the online interaction of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, tracking graphics are embedded in code and not visible on web pages. As with cookies, we may connect the information gathered by tracking graphics to our users' personally identifiable information.
We use tracking graphics in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt out of these emails, you may do so by following the instructions included in every such communication.
Display Ads
Some of the ads appearing on the Network or Site are delivered to users by one or more advertising partners. We may share aggregate website usage information about users with reputable third parties for the purpose of targeting our advertisements on the Site. Advertisers may use cookies and/or tracking graphics on the Site, allowing them to recognize a user when a user visits the Site. The information that such companies collect and share through this technology is not personally identifiable.
Links to other Web Sites
This privacy Policy applies only to the information collected by LLC. The Site contain may links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave the Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
Communications Opt-out
We provide you with the opportunity to "opt out" of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information. For example, if you signup for an account with us but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you may indicate your preference within you user account settings.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication.
Information Sharing
We share aggregated demographic information about our visitors with our partners, affiliates, and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users; rather, it provides our partners, affiliates, and advertisers with a description of our user base as a whole. Partners may include third parties with whom we have or may have a business relationship, such as advertisers or sponsors.
Information Use
In order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submitted to us with information from third-party sources. Examples of such sources may include marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich user profiles of individual customers, we tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.
Messaging Content
Any information you provide within the Network or on the Site that may enable other users to determine your identity, contact information, or any other related information, is your sole responsibility. LLC. assumes no responsibility to any damages as a result from or related to the information provided publicly or privately by users of the Site.
Legal Disclosure
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.
Business Transactions
In the event LLC. goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You may be notified via email of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
Privacy for Children
We will not knowingly attempt to collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Service. The Service and its content are not directed at children under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
Privacy Policy Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this Privacy Policy and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
