Information Collection and Use
We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Services to you.
Types of Data Collected
Personal Data: Personal Data means data about a living individual who can be identified from those data (or from those and other information either in our possession or likely to come into our possession).
While using our Services, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. For example, if you choose to create an account on the Services, upon registration you provide us with information, which may include your:
- Mobile phone number
- Email address
- First name and last name
- Username (or "@handle")
- Profile picture
- Account creation date
Personal data may also include Pubic Information, Usage Data, Log Data, Location Data, and Cookies, which are described below.
Your username and any information you share on the Services (Public Information) are always public and visible to others. Your first and last name, profile picture, account creation date, and certain Usage Data are listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. You can hide your profile within your User Account settings section of the Services. When you hide your profile, your first and last name, profile picture, account creation date, and certain Usage Data are not listed publicly on your profile page.
We may use your Personal Data to allow other users to send you messages within the Services or to your email address. You can opt out of receiving any or all of these communications within your Messaging Preferences settings section of the Services.
We may use your Personal Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send or by contacting us using the contact information below.
We may use your Personal Data to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving.
You may also provide us with additional information as a result of communications between you and Sivoh, Inc., for example when you contact us.
Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. Public Information includes the prayers and comments you post; information contained in or associated with the information you provide (e.g., photo location information, file creation date and author information, and other metadata); the lists you create; the keywords you use; the people you follow ("Connections") or that follow you ("Followers"); the groups you create, join, or participate in; the prayers and keywords you mark as favorites; the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did); and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from the Services. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your first and last name, username, profile picture, account creation date, certain Usage Data, prayers, comments, and other information may be searchable by search engines and are immediately delivered by our Services to a wide range of users and services. When you share information or content like photos, videos, text, keywords, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Usage Data: Usage Data is summary or statistical information that results from your use of the Services. Usage Data includes information about when you use the services, how often you use the Services, and what you do while using the Services. Examples of Usage Data include, but are not limited to, the number and type of posts you share, the number of people you follow or that follow you, the number of groups you participate in, the keyword(s) you use most, and other compiled data related to your use of the Services.
