2. Cookies

We, and third parties with whom we partner, may use cookies, web beacons, local shared objects (sometimes called “flash cookies”), and similar technology in connection with your use of the App and third party websites (“Cookies”). Cookies are small data files that may have unique identifiers, and reside, among other places, on your mobile device, in emails we send to you, and on the App. Cookies may transmit information about you and your use of the App, such as your search preferences, data relating to advertisements that have been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use. Cookies may be persistent or stored only during an individual session.

3. Third Parties

We may share information about you with third parties as follows:

  1. Investigations: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure is (a) reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the App; or (c) protect our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
  2. Links: The App may contain links to unaffiliated third party websites. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with them, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.
  3. Facebook and Twitter: If you are logged into Facebook, and you access but are not logged into the App, we may receive information from Facebook to make it easier for you to create an account on the App and show you relevant content from your Facebook friends. You can also connect your Jooay account to your accounts on third party services like Facebook or Twitter, in which case we may collect and store information identifying your account with the third party service. We use the information to help you connect and share public content with your friends and followers.

4. Controlling Your Personal Data

Other users may be able to identify you, or associate you with your account if you include personal information in the content you post publicly. You can reduce the risk of being personally identified by using the App pseudonymously.
Please also note that the messages you send or receive using the App are only private to the extent that both you and the sender/recipient keep them private. For example, we do not have any control over whether a recipient of one of your messages publicly posts it or its contents.

5. Children

The App is intended for general audiences and is not directed to persons under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

6. Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

7. Jurisdiction

The information we obtain from or about you may be processed and stored in Canada, Province of Quebec, which may provide for different data protection rules than the country in which you reside.

8. Modifications to This Privacy Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by email or by posting a notice on the App prior to the effective date of the changes. By continuing to access or use the App after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
