Effective Date: December 21, 2016
Privacy is important. So is explaining it in a way you'd understand even if you never went to Law School. Here's the information we collect about you, how we use it and the instances where we share this information with others.
When you first create an account with DAILYMYND, you'll give us your full name and email address plus create a username and password. If you prefer, you can choose a name other than your legal name. If you don't feel like creating an account from scratch, you may be able to sign in through an account you already have with a publisher.
Then there's your user profile. It helps you customize your account plus connect with other DAILYMYND users. Your profile automatically includes your name and username. You can also add a profile picture and whatever else you'd like in the "Bio" field. We recognize that you may want to communicate in a private mode, so we give you the option to have an anonymous or semi-anonymous profile.
To help you connect with other DAILYMYND users and to personalize your DAILYMYND experience, we may ask for additional information, including your contacts, location or a list of the apps on your mobile device. We also collect information based on searches, comments, and memes generated through DAILYMYND. If you create an account after January 1, 2017, we will collect a list of the installed apps on your mobile device to improve and personalize your experience. We delete or anonymize this information after we make initial recommendations to help you get started on DAILYMYND. We don't make recommendations based on sensitive information. There's some other information we receive automatically when you use DAILYMYND. This includes data about your device, software, operating system, operating system- provided device or user-specific advertising IDs for advertisement tracking ("Advertising IDs"), your IP address and the date and time of each request you make to DAILYMYND.
To make your experience better we collect information about how you view and interact with content and advertisements through DAILYMYND. We also collect this data on third-party sites with DAILYMYND widgets.
You may link your DAILYMYND account to other services you use, such as social networking sites, photo-sharing services and media publishers. If you connect your DAILYMYND account with a third-party service, we collect information through that service too. The information we collect varies depending on the service and your privacy settings on those sites. It may include profile information such as you age, gender and location; your contacts on that service and the content you've made publicly available there.
If you want to email something you see through DAILYMYND to a friend who isn't already a DAILYMYND account holder, we may keep their email address for the purpose of expanding and improving our services. If you don't want to participate in the collection of this data, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Request that we remove this information from our database and we will.
A benefit of DAILYMYND is sharing the content you find interesting. That's why your DAILYMYND profile, the people and sources you follow, the memes you create, the comments you post and the content you read are all captured by us. Some of which are displayed publicly.
We use your information to keep DAILYMYND solvent, better understand how you use our service, customize your experience (including the content, marketing materials, and advertisements you may see) prevent abuse and improve DAILYMYND. DAILYMYND may also work with advertising partners to serve you third-party advertisements or offers, including interest-based or mobile advertisements. For more information about our advertising partners' practices, please their individual websites. You also can learn more about interested-based advertising, including how to opt out of third-party partners' advertising you see on DAILYMYND and on other services, by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. If you opt out, you'll still see ads, but they won't be tailored using information like your interests, visits to other services, or demographics. Alternatively, you can opt out by discontinuing your use of DAILYMYND.
At DAILYMYND, we share your personally identifiable information only under very specific circumstances:
We may disclose aggregate information about how our users use DAILYMYND in a manner that doesn't identify you individually.
DAILYMYND may also uses web beacons in advertisements to allow DAILYMYND and its advertising partners to see how users view and engage with ads. Depending on your advertising preferences set in your operating system, DAILYMYND may share your Advertising ID with advertising partners in an anonymous fashion that is not tied to your name or email address.
Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don't want your Internet browsing activity to be tracked. The Internet community hasn't reached a consensus on how to best honor these signals, so we don't respond to Do-Not-Track requests at this time.
If you'd like to delete your account, you can do so in the DAILYMYND application under Settings or in the Edit Profile Menu. If we delete your account, your user profile will no longer be visible on our service, though we may still keep some log information in non-personally identifiable form and any other information you have made publicly available through DAILYMYND. This may also include search terms, comments and memes.
