Privacy policy

We, at KWINDOO, respect your privacy. This policy explains the privacy practices of KWINDOO ("KWINDOO") on www.kwindoo.com (our "Website") and with respect to KWINDOO's mobile applications “KWINDOO Application") (collectively referred to as "the Services"). It describes how KWINDOO collects and uses your personal information and the rights and options available to you.

This policy is incorporated into and coherent part of KWINDOO’s Terms and EULA (the "Terms and EULA" or the "Terms").

By using our Services, you acknowledge that the Terms and this Privacy Policy constitute a binding and enforceable legal contract between the Company and the person connecting to, accessing or using KWINDOO.

In this policy, the term 'personal information', or 'personally identifiable information' (PI or PII) means any information that, with reasonable efforts, may be used to identify you, such as a first and family name, home or permanent residence address and email address.

PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE

When you register with the Services, KWINDOO may ask you to provide certain contact and personal details, such as mobile device number and e-mail address. Note that false, incorrect, or outdated information may hinder KWINDOO to provide you with the Services and to contact you should that be required.

Yo may be required to provide further information when KWINDOO exchange communications with you, e.g. if you submit a request, contact KWINDOO for support or report a violation case.

PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU SHARE

The Services are based on users' locations and submissions, including user submissions made to third party services (such as social networks) which interact with the Service upon such users' choice, all of which may include personal information. You may upload and share content with other users on social media. The content that you share over social media should be treated as neither private nor confidential and you should not have any expectation of privacy with respect to it. Therefore, you must exercise caution and common sense when submitting information. At the very least you should demonstrate the same degree of caution as when publishing personal information by means other than the Internet and cellular services. KWINDOO may make certain content that you submit for posting viewable to all Internet users.

In any event (but except as detailed below with respect to information shared from your social network accounts according to your privacy settings for such social network accounts), your email address or mobile device number will not be visible to others through any reports or user posts that you share or upload.

We, at KWINDOO, take great measures to provide you with the best experience you can have while using the Service; However, KWINDOO has no control over the conduct of any user, and disclaims all liability in this regard. Users are advised to carefully and thoroughly consider whether or not to make public or available any information and carefully examine all necessary details related to any communication with other users prior to any engagement or communication being made.

Participating in any user's activities as a result, directly or indirectly, from using KWINDOO, is entirely at your own risk. KWINDOO is not a party to any agreement entered into between the users in any circumstances. The user has the sole and ultimate responsibility regarding compliance with all laws, regulation or any other duty. We do not accept any liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense that you may suffer or incur as a result of or in connection with your participation in any activity or event initiated, held or conducted by a user or a third party nor in connection to any agreement between the users or third parties, including any activity or event related in any way, directly or indirectly, the Services or the use thereof.

LOCATION BASED AND SENSOR INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use your mobile device with a copy of the Application installed, KWINDOO collects your location and possibly some of your device-sensors' information. KWINDOO uses that information to provide you and other users with the Services. KWINDOO may make use of your location and/or sensor information to create aggregated anonymous data and to use such data in accordance with this policy (please refer to the use of aggregated information chapter hereunder). KWINDOO will make reasonable efforts to permanently remove or obscure your identity from your location or sensor information that is used for aggregated purposes or outside the scope of KWINDOO's services.

OPTING OUT OF LOCATION AND SENSOR INFORMATION SERVICES BY UNINSTALLING THE APPLICATION OR CHANGING SETTINGS

Any time you may uninstall the Application, by using the Application's uninstall option, or by using the programs removal feature of your operating system. Following the uninstallation process, KWINDOO will not be able to collect any further location or sensor information from you.

You may change how much and how often information is shared by the app by using the Application’s internal settings, whenever available.
