Privacy Policy

Thank you for being an awesome member of the Depalo tribe!

This is Depalo’s Privacy Policy (“Policy”). It explains how we collect, store, protect, and share your information, and with whom we share it. We suggest you read this in conjunction with our Terms of Use.. As a part of our tribe in the Depalo mobile application (“App”), we collect some information about you. We may also feed to share your information sometimes.

Depalo is a global app, and your information will be sent to and used in the United States regardless of the country you reside in. This Policy explains how we protect your personal data when we transfer it overseas, so please read very carefully! If you have any questions or comments about this Policy, please feel free to contact us at info@depaloapp.com.

1. Collection of Information

Registration Information

When you download the App and create an account (“Account”), we may collect certain information (“Registration Information”) about you, such as:

  • Name;

  • Username;

  • Email address;

  • Gender identity;

  • Date of birth;

  • Location and Login information from Facebook account that you connect to your Depalo Account

You will also be required to create a password in connection with the registration of your Account. Once you register, you will be able to review and change this information at any time by accessing your “Profile” page!
You control your user profile and are able to correct or update (other than your email address, mobile number, date of birth, gender and location (which is automatically updated)) your information at any time by just logging in to Depalo.
The information we collect helps to enhance the App and verify you as a real human. Your username may be visible to Depalo users, yet your profile page will be private within the app.

Additional Information

We may collect additional information in connection with your use of Depalo, for example if you use our in-app push notifications.
If you contact our Customer Support team, we will receive your email address, and may track your IP address as well as the information you send to us to help resolve your query. We will keep records of our communications with you.
Please see Section 4 below for more information on who can access what you post on Depalo. If you post anything that is inconsistent with our Terms and Conditions of Use, we reserve the right to delete a comment and terminate your Account, yet we really don’t want to have to do this!
Finally, we want to keep in touch with you to make sure you know about the great promotions and offers we have available. If you’ve told us it’s OK, we will use your email address and phone number to send you information on these. You can withdraw this consent at any time via Settings in the app.

Data Storage

By using the App, you acknowledge that Depalo is a global app operating through servers located in the United States. If you live in a country with data protection laws, the storage of your personal data may not provide you with the same protections as you enjoy in your country of residence.

Geolocation Information

If you turn these features on, when you use your mobile, we will collect information about WiFi access points as well as other location information about your longitude and latitude and may save your device’s coordinates to offer certain features to you. This information helps us identify your physical location and we may use it to personalize the App and make it easier for you view “nearby” photo opportunities.

If you have enabled location services, but wish to turn it off, you can do so by the following methods:

1. iPhone app — settings, privacy, location services, Depalo

Log and Usage Data

We keep your personal information only as long as we need it for legitimate business purposes (as set out in Section 11 below) and as permitted by applicable law.
In practice, we delete or anonymize your information upon deletion of your account (following the safety retention window), unless:

1. we must keep it to comply with applicable law (for instance, some “traffic data” is kept for one year to comply with statutory data retention obligations);
2. we must keep it to evidence our compliance with applicable law (for instance, records of consents to our Terms, Privacy Policy and other similar consents are kept for five years);
3. there is an outstanding issue, claim or dispute requiring us to keep the relevant information until it is resolved

Device Information

We may collect information about your device when you use the App including the unique device identifier, device model, operating system, and MAC address.

3. Disclosure of Information

Our policy is to not disclose your Registration Information, except in the circumstances described here:

Your Consent – If you consent, we may share or disclose your Registration Information, such as when you use a third party web client or application to access your Account.

Service Providers – We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your Registration Information with these third parties, but only for the purposes of performing these functions and providing such services e.g. information technology companies (hardware and software) which provide services to support our products.

Business Transfers -In the event that Depalo or any of our affiliates undergoes a business transition or change of ownership, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, re-organisation, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, or in the event of insolvency or administration, we may be required to disclose your personal data.

Aggregated Information – We may share aggregated information with third parties that includes your personal data (but which doesn’t identify you directly) together with other information including log data for industry analysis and demographic profiling.

We ensure these parties must adhere to strict data protection and confidentiality provisions that are consistent with this Policy. Measures are taken to ensure that the data shared is non-attributable to the greatest extent possible.

4. Modifying your registration information

You may access or modify the Registration Information you provided at anytime or permanently delete your Account (although we really hope you don’t!).

When your Account is deactivated, we take reasonable efforts to make sure it is no longer viewable on the App. For up to 30 days it is still possible to restore your Account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated. After 30 days, we begin the process of deleting your Account from our systems. We are not responsible for any information, pictures, comments, or other content that is deleted from our systems resulting from the deactivation of your Account.

Warning: Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other Users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party
applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.

Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 30 days to enable restoration, but will not be available to others in the meantime.

5. Changes to this policy

As Depalo grows, we may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be at depaloapp.com/privacy-policy/. If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you, for example, via an email to the email associated with your Account or by posting a notice within Depalo. By continuing to access or use the App after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

6. Security

Here at Depalo we pride ourselves on taking commercially reasonable security measures to help protect your information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, or disclosure.

Unfortunately no website or Internet transmission is ever completely 100% secure and even we cannot guarantee that unauthorised access, hacking, data loss or other breaches will never occur, but here are some handy tips to help keep your data secure:

1. Please don’t share your password with anyone else!
2. Change your password periodically.
3. If you use Facebook to sign in, still consider tips 1. and 2.

If you ever think someone has had access to your social media password, please report it to the relevant social media platform and change your password immediately. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal data while it is being transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk.

WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACHES OF SECURITY, DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE, OR ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR REGISTRATION  INFORMATION OR OTHER DATA.

7. Third Party Accounts

If you have registered with Depalo using a third party social media platform, such as Facebook, your Depalo profile will be available to our partners’ websites.

Remember that when you register with a third party, you are also giving them personal information, so we recommend that you read their privacy policies as Depalo does not control how they use their information.

If you have registered on one of these third party websites, such as Facebook, we may connect your Depalo profile with your profile on such website.

We only use your email, FacebookID and Profile photo provided by the applicable Social Media Account to integrate your Social Media Account with our App.
