Potentially (in the future) WorldOfOpinion.com may receive your information through various means such as SMS, mobile device apps etc. When using WorldOfOpinion.com you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Policy.

Wherever you live in the world, your information that is associated with WorldOfOpinion.com is controlled by WorldOfOpinion.com, (give the applicable email address here). In spite of this, you alone control and are responsible for the posting of your TellYouWhats and other Content including Comments you make available to WorldOfOpinion.com, as provided in the Terms and WorldOfOpinion.com Rules.

You authorize us to use your information in, and as a result to transfer it to and store it in, the United States, and any other country where we potentially might operate. Privacy and data protection laws may vary between the country where you live and the countries where we may store your information.

Basic Account Information

When you create or reconfigure an account, you provide some personal information, such as your email address, username, or password. On WorldOfOpinion.com, your username is listed publicly, including in search results. And as referred elsewhere, for accessing, reading and commenting on WorldOfOpinion.com you do not require registration.

TellYouWhats, Addressees, Comments and other Public Information WorldOfOpinion.com is primarily designed for users to say what they like (TellYouWhats) on people and other entities (Addressees) sharing it with the world, thus making it public. And user Comments published on WorldOfOpinion.com are also shared with the world and become public. Additionally, other information that becomes public is that which is associated with your TellYouWhats and Comments such as metadata (e.g., time of posting). We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics are trending and based on which we may customize ads that get displayed (whenever, we introduce ads in WorldOfOpinion.com – currently we do not show ads). Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through WorldOfOpinion.com public for as long as you do not delete it. Given that the information you provide becomes public, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

Location Information

WorldOfOpinion.com may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your TellYouWhats. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. While currently we don’t use the location information, if any, in future we might use for purposes such as providing relevant ads to the users.

Links

WorldOfOpinion.com may keep track of how you interact with links across WorldOfOpinion.com, including any email notifications we send, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve WorldOfOpinion.com, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

Cookies

Like many websites, we may use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data to improve WorldOfOpinion.com, but we do not require cookies for many parts of WorldOfOpinion.com such as searching. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer or mobile device. WorldOfOpinion.com may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with WorldOfOpinion.com, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on WorldOfOpinion.com, and to customize and improve it. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, some browsers’ settings can be modified to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on your computer. However, some portions of WorldOfOpinion.com may not function properly if you disable cookies. We honor the Do Not Track browser option to give you control over how your website visits are used to personalize your WorldOfOpinion.com experience and ads (whenever advertising comes into effect sometime in the future).

We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with links in WorldOfOpinion.com. We may use Log Data to provide, understand, and improve WorldOfOpinion.com, to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the content we show you, including ads. If we collected Log Data, then we would remove it after a maximum of 1 year if not already done earlier for any other reason.

Service Providers

We engage service providers to perform functions and provide services to us in the United States and potentially other countries. We may share your private personal information with such service providers subject to obligations consistent with this Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions.

Law and Harm

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect WorldOfOpinion.com’s rights or property. However, nothing in this Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

Business Transfer

In the event that WorldOfOpinion.com is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information

We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your TellYouWhats, the Content you follow on WorldOfOpinion.com, or the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did), or reports to advertisers about unique users who saw or clicked on their ads after we have removed any private personal information (such as your name or contact information).

Deactivation and Deletion of Your Account

As a registered user of WorldOfOpinion.com, while you may not directly cancel your account, you may stop using it (i.e., stop posting Opinions or Comments) and if the disuse lasts at least 6 months on a continuous basis, WorldOfOpinion.com will automatically deactivate your account and permanently delete it. Deactivation and deletion of your account amounts to you not having an account to log in and use WorldOfOpinion.com for the purposes of posting Opinions and Comments. However, your previously submitted Content will remain in WorldOfOpinion.com.

Our Policy Towards Children

WorldOfOpinion.com is not directed to persons under 13.

Unlawful use: You may not use WorldOfOpinion.com for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities. International users agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content.

Abusive Behavior

We believe in freedom of speech and expression, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice. Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.

Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.

  • if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from

multiple accounts.

Username squatting: You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than one year may also be removed without further notice. Some of the factors we take into consideration when determining what conduct is considered to be username squatting are:

  • the number of accounts created;
