This Privacy Policy covers the use of information collected by The App. We are committed to providing a fun, supportive, and safe App for people 13 and over. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected on The App. We ensure that our Privacy Policy and our information practices adhere to the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. To help ensure a rewarding and safe online experience for our participants, we provide you with this Privacy Policy that describes the information practices of The App, including how we collect, use and disclose personal information.

  1. The Information We Collect

We do not accept members under 13. We request first name, a username, phone number, email address, date of birth, zip code (US only) when a user registers themselves on The App. When a user submits a form through the “Contact Us” portion of the website, we request that they supply their first name and a valid email address so that we may respond to the inquiry. We collect the email address for the sole purpose of responding directly on a one-time basis to a specific inquiry. For some of our online activities, we may ask users to provide information that is not personally identifiable, such as first name, date of birth, country of residence, zip code or a user’s favorite color. We strongly encourage you not to disclose personal information (such as real name, email address, telephone number, etc.) about yourself or about any third party in the content you submit and we are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit. Finally, we may offer Public Forums (as defined in the Terms of Use governing The App the “Terms of Use”), as well as other features in which you may provide us with Submissions (as defined in the Terms of Use). If you use a Public Forum on The App and disclose personally identifiable information, you should be aware that such information could be read, collected or used by other parties or users. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to reveal in these Public Forums. Additionally, when visitors come to The App, we may passively collect certain NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, such as the type of computer operating system, the user’s IP Address, the web browser being used, the frequency with which users visit various parts of The App, the type of conversations and topics discussed and information regarding the Internet service provider, in order to make The App more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our mission and/or studies. We or one of our contractors, on our behalf, may collect this non-personally identifiable information through the use of software technologies such as unique identifiers or “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that we place in visitors’ computer browsers to store their preferences. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn on/off all cookies in your browser settings. Please note that most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

  1. How We Use, Disclose, and Store the Information We Collect

In addition to the purposes described in Section 1, we may actively collect and use phone numbers, email addresses and social media usernames to track usage and to ensure users are following the Give Us The Floor’s Terms of Use. In addition, we may refer to a phone number and username to ban a user temporarily or permanently from The App if that user engages in inappropriate conduct. We also may use the information to analyze The App usage, as well as offer products, programs, or services or conduct studies. We may disclose information where we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or where we disclose information to data processors who act on our behalf (service providers or other group companies who provide support for the operations of The App and who do not use or disclose the information for any other purpose). To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose PII in response to a law enforcement agency or other public agency (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a user using The App, protect the security or integrity of The App, or enable us to take precautions against liability.
