bbigg Applications Inc. (“bbigg”, “we”, “us”) respects your right to privacy related to any information we collect during the course of your use of our fotodanz application and/or the associated website www.fotodanz.com (together referred to as “fotodanz Services”).
1. Types of Information Collected through fotodanz Services
Like other similar mobile application/web service providers, bbigg also collects two forms of information through our fotodanz Services – personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”).
Personal Information is any information that identifies a person as an individual. You do NOT have to provide personal information for using the fotodanz Services. However, you will need to provide certain Personal Information to use our enhanced services such as sharing on Facebook and Twitter and/or for voting and commenting on images/blogs. Note that popular sites like Facebook and Twitter do not support animated Gif images and if you try to post your fotodanz images directly they will NOT be animated. If you register an account with us, we can save your animated fotodanz image files on our cloud server and provide a link that you can easily share on your favorite sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
The type of Personal Information we gather depends on the nature of the user’s interaction with fotodanz Services. Typically we request users to provide information such as first name, last name, username, email address and password to register and create an account to facilitate features such as sharing images to social sites and/or to enable voting/commenting on images and blogs.
Non-Personal Information is aggregated information such as trends and volumes, demographic information, IP addresses, browser type, language preference, referring site and other information that does not reveal a person’s specific identity such as a user’s location (city and country), age group, sex and language preferences. We typically collect this information to understand user interactions and improve our fotodanz Services. We also use this information to market our fotodanz Services to new users and also attract new partners who can enable us to expand our fotodanz Services.
2. Disclosure of Collected Information
Personal Information will NOT be rented or sold by bbigg to any third party for any reason whatsoever. However, Personal Information may be disclosed:
- If required to do so by law, or when bbigg believes in good faith that disclosure of certain Personal Information is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of bbigg, fotodanz Services or the public at large.
- To bbigg’s employees, contractors and/or affiliated organizations who have signed an agreement not to disclose such information to others, primarily for two purposes – (a) in order to process such information on bbigg’s behalf, (b) if it is required for providing the services available through the fotodanz Service. Note that some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country and by using the fotodanz Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Non-Personal Information such as statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites may be released, for example, in aggregated reports detailing usage data and other user statistics/trends related fotodanz Services.
3. Communications with Our Users
As fotodanz is evolving to be a social network, we will communicate with our users through most popular social networks. You may also contact us via the various email addresses available for communication. If you are a registered user of fotodanz Services, we may occasionally send you an email to introduce new products/features, ask for your feedback, or just inform you of our expanding fotodanz Services.
4. Protection of Personal Information
bbigg will not rent or sell any Personal Information to anyone or any organization. All Personal Information collected will be strictly be used for the said purposes in Section 2 above.
bbigg will take all reasonable measures necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of all Personal Information under our control. However, unfortunately, no data transmitted over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, you acknowledge and agree that any information you provide, transmit or share through the fotodanz Services is so transmitted, shared or provided at your own risk. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that your fotodanz account might be compromised), you must immediately notify us by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can take necessary actions immediately to reset your account and protect it from further unauthorized access.
5. Protecting the Privacy of Children
fotodanz Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13 and, as such, we do not market and/or direct fotodanz Services towards such young children. Furthermore, we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Please do not register or use fotodanz Services if you are not at least 13 years of age.
6. Third Party Sites
7. Jurisdictional Issues
Although available for access internationally, our fotodanz Services are managed by bbigg from Canada, and is not intended to subject bbigg to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of Canada. We do not represent or warrant that the fotodanz Services, or any part of the fotodanz Services, are appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the fotodanz Services do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations.
