This Privacy Policy describes our company’s policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information when you use the Foko Service. By accessing or using the Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Use.

Information We Collect and Use

Information you provide: When you register an account, we collect some Personal Information, such as your name, title, email address, phone number, avatar and biography. In general, your name, email address, phone number and other information you choose to provide on the Service will be viewable and discoverable by other users. In some cases, where content has been shared with users outside your email domain extension, your information may be viewed by those additional users.

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, phone number or other relevant contact details and automatically send an invitation. When you agree for Foko to access your device’s contacts app, we will collect the names, phone numbers and email addresses of the people you invite to a photo or to a network. Foko stores this information to send an invitation via email or SMS, to register your friend if your invitation is accepted. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your email address or phone number) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you or tried to invite you to Foko.

We may use your email address or phone number to send you Service-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). We may also use your contact information to send you marketing messages. If you don’t want to receive these messages, you can 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.

Content: You also provide information in Content you post to the Service. In general, the Content you provide will be viewable and discoverable by other users. In some cases, where content has been shared with users outside your email domain extension, your information may be viewed by those additional users. Foko can, but has no obligation, to monitor the Content you post on the Service. Foko and Foko employees will not view your Content except: (i) to maintain, provide or improve the Service; (ii) to help you and resolve your support requests; or (iii) as Foko believes, in its sole opinion, is necessary to comply with Foko Terms of Use.

Geo-Location Information: Content that you upload or share in Foko may contain recorded location information. Location data does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. Location data may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information.

Device Identifiers: When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers”. Device identifiers allow us to uniquely identify your device and are used to enhance the Service (including sending updates and information from the Service). A device identifier does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. A device identifier may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information.

Analytics. When you access the Service on our website, we may collect information (using third party services) using logging and cookies which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information. We use this information to monitor and analyze use and interest in the Service. As of the date of this policy, we use Google Analytics for this work.

How We Share Your Information

Your Use: We will display the information you provide on your profile page and elsewhere on the Service. In general, the information and Content you provide will be viewable and discoverable by other users or people invited to the service. In some cases, where content has been shared with users outside your email domain extension, your information may be viewed by those additional users. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. You can review and revise your name, title, biography and avatar at any time.

Service Providers, Business Partners and Others: We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Service, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Site. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies. As of the date this policy, we use Parse.com to store your data, mailgun.com to manage email distribution, Google and Apple for payment processing. We encourage you to review these other privacy statements.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Foko’s Rights: Foko may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Foko’s rights or property.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personally identifiable information, such as anonymous usage data, platform types, etc., with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Foko Services.

How We Protect Your Information

The security of your information is important to us. Foko enforces Roles Based Security to limit user access to data. We use trusted third party services for data security, system security, back-ups, and disaster recovery.

No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Foko will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

International Data Transfer

We may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information, to affiliated entities, or to other third parties (as provided herein) across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. and the use and disclosure of information about you, including personal information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Links to Other Web Sites

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from the Service, nor the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Service to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
