Privacy Policy

- Your privacy is critically important to us.

It is Wishpoke’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our products. This Privacy Policy applies to Wishpoke (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "Wishpoke"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Products. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Products, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Products and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Products, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Products. Depending on your activities when visiting our Products, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

- Products Users

Like most products operators, Wishpoke collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wishpoke’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wishpoke’s Users use its products. From time to time, Wishpoke may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its products.

Wishpoke also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Wishpoke blog posts. Wishpoke only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below

- Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain Users to Wishpoke’s products choose to interact with Wishpoke in ways that require Wishpoke to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wishpoke gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask Users who sign up for Wishpoke to provide a username and email address.

We also get technical information when you use our products

These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

_Log data.

When you use Wishpoke, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited that had Wishpoke features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Wishpoke, and cookie data.

_Cookie data.

Depending on how you’re accessing our products, we may use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Wishpoke account or your browser) or similar technologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preferences or other Wishpoke settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit Wishpoke. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Wishpoke account (including personal information about you, such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not.

_Device information.

In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Wishpoke on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

- Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

- Advertisements

Ads appearing on our products may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Wishpoke and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

- Links To External Sites

Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit.
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

- Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wishpoke discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wishpoke’s behalf or to provide services available at Wishpoke’s products, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wishpoke’s products, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wishpoke will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wishpoke discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wishpoke believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wishpoke, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of Wishpoke and have supplied your email address, Wishpoke may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wishpoke and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wishpoke takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

- How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Wishpoke and our users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a product, which can help us understand which version is better.
If you make a purchase on Wishpoke, we’ll save your payment information and contact information so that you can use them the next time you want to buy something on Wishpoke.

We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:
Suggesting Pokes or lists you might like. For example, if you’ve indicated that you’re interested in cooking or visited recipe websites that have Wishpoke features, we may suggest food-related Poke, lists, or people that we think you might like.
Showing you ads you might be interested in. For example, if you purchased a camping tent on Wishpoke, we may show you ads for other outdoorsy products.

We also use the information we collect to:
Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like repoke or comments, happens on Wishpoke), newsletters, marketing materials and other information that may be of interest to you. For example, depending on your email notification settings, we may send you weekly updates that include Poke you may like. You can decide to stop getting these updates by updating your account settings (or through other settings we may provide).
Help your friends and contacts find you on Wishpoke. For example, if you sign up using a Facebook account, we may help your Facebook friends find your account on Wishpoke when they first sign up for Wishpoke. Or, we may allow people to search for your account on Wishpoke using your email address.

Respond to your questions or comments.

The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever Wishpoke does business, including countries outside your own.
