Privacy Policy

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain how we collect, store, and use your information. It is also meant to explain whom we share it with, why, and what we share with them.

Because Imzy is not supporting advertising at this time, our policies are able to be simple and straightforward: we collect some information about you to enhance your experience, we do not sell your information, and we only share your information with trusted third parties who hold the same policy.

This Privacy Policy is a piece of Imzy’s Terms of Service and is incorporated into that agreement.

Collection of Information

We collect and store all the information that you provide us, including your email address, username, password, phone number, and other personal information gathered in the onboarding process. We also collect and store posts, comments, conversations, and everything you add or send to Imzy (“Personal Information”).

Other Personal Information we collect includes information about your use of Imzy, what you follow, click, view, subscribe, vote on, share, etc. That information, combined with your IP, device information, browser information, and other unique identifiers, which we also collect and store, helps Imzy create a service that works best for you.

The nature of the Personal Information means that some of it will be collected upon your submission to the site, like when you post or comment or submit a new username. Some of your Personal Information will be collected passively, like your browser or phone’s unique identifiers.

While we use cookies to keep track of you while on our services, we don’t collect information of your activities outside of our site or services.

Payment Information

Imzy uses Stripe to process payments made on Imzy. Stripe’s privacy policy is best in class, and through the use of their service on Imzy, you also agree to their policies, so be sure to become familiar with them.

Imzy does not store your payment information directly on our servers. Instead, we provide the option for you to store your payment information with Stripe if you so choose.

Disclosure of Information

Your information is private and not for sale by Imzy. It is only used internally so we can display the content you share, show you the content you are most interested in, provide customer service, send you notifications and other communications, and learn how to better serve our users. To keep Imzy working, we do integrate with some third party service providers. However, we only share your personal information with third party service providers who uphold our disclosure standard.

Law Enforcement

Imzy respects our users’ rights and privacy. If we receive a request for your information, we will notify you and provide you with a copy of the legal process underlying those requests, so that you can have the chance to challenge those requests if you desire.

Imzy and its third party service providers may disclose your personal information where there is a belief that such disclosure is needed to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, (b) enforce applicable terms of use, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address illegal or suspected illegal activities (including payment fraud), security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Imzy, its users, or the public, as required or permitted by law.

In exceptional circumstances, Imzy may elect not to provide user notice before complying with the request or may be prohibited by law from providing notice, such as when we receive a non-disclosure order pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 2705(b). In these situations, Imzy’s policy is to notify the affected users after the non-disclosure period has elapsed.

Personal Information after Account Deletion

If you terminate your Account or delete a Username, we are committed to making your personal information inaccessible to others, but that may not be completely possible due to the social nature of content shared through Imzy. When you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, copy it, and modify it, making your content part of a conversation that can’t later be erased without disrupting the conversations of other users. You can still delete your comments and posts, of course, but you can’t delete other people’s content that may reference yours. Simply put, it’s hard to remove something completely that has been posted publicly, so please think twice before you post.

Privacy Requests

If you would like Imzy to remove some specific information from your account that you can’t remove on your own, please reach out via email to support@imzy.com and we will do our best to help you out.

Best Efforts

We believe we use reasonable administrative, logical, physical, and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, and modification. Unfortunately, nothing we do can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. We’ll do our best, but we need you to do your best, too. Please keep your passwords secure and your devices protected.

Updates

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, using the process for modifications set forth in our Terms of Service. Use of Personal Information we collect is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected.

If we update our privacy policy, we will notify you of the changes via email or a message on the service. Updates to the Privacy Policy will not apply retroactively; however, continued use of Imzy’s services after an update will constitute acceptance of the updated policies.

We haven’t had any need to update our Privacy Policy, but if we do, we plan to keep a record of our amendments available to view here.
