Privacy Policy

Effective: April 4, 2016

Last updated: April 4, 2016

We recognize that your privacy is very important and take it seriously. This Privacy Policy describes GetBoocs's policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information when you use the GetBoocs Service, via the GetBoocs website, GetBoocs content embedded on another site (such as a GetBoocs "Follow" button), your mobile phone, or through one of GetBoocs's applications for mobile devices (e.g., the GetBoocs iPhone application). We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources. Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Service.

Information Collection and Use

GetBoocs uses information we collect to analyze how the Service is used, diagnose service or technical problems, maintain security, personalize content, remember information to help you efficiently access your account, monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns, and track User Content and users as necessary to comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws.

User-Provided Information:

You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, if you register for a member account with the Service. Your name and other information you choose to add to your profile will be available for public viewing on the Service. You may provide us with your mobile phone number if you choose to submit questions and receive answers via text message. We may use your email address to send you Service-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). You can control receipt of certain Service-related messages on your Settings page. We may also use your contact information to send you marketing email messages. If you do not want to receive such messages, you may opt out by following the instructions in the message. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. If you use your Facebook, Twitter, or other social networking site ("SNS") account information to sign in to GetBoocs, we will collect and store your SNS user ID. If you connect your GetBoocs account with your SNS account (such as to enable posting from GetBoocs), we ask for your permission to collect certain information from your SNS account (such as information from your SNS profile). You also provide us information in User Content you post to the Service. Your questions, answers, and other contributions on the Service, and metadata about them (such as when you posted them), are publicly viewable on the Service, along with your name (unless the Service permits you to post anonymously). This information may be searched by search engines and be republished elsewhere on the Web in accordance with our Terms of Service. If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a friend to the Service, we will ask you for that person's email address and automatically send an email invitation. You may also use our contact importer tool to help you upload your friends' email addresses so you can find friends who are already on GetBoocs or invite friends to the Service. GetBoocs stores this information to send invitations, to register your friend if your invitation is accepted, to track the success of our invitation service, and to identify your friends on GetBoocs.

Information Collected Automatically:

We collect your IP address, and publicly accessibly location (city, and country) at every login.
