Privacy Policy - Fanoob a Sports Live Streaming App for Fans

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which Fanoob Inc. (“we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and discloses information about you through the Fanoob mobile application (the “App”) and all other Fanoob websites and applications that link to this policy. By using the App, you consent to the processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy, now and as amended by us.

What information do we collect?

Information You Provide – We and our service providers collect any information that you provide when you use the App, including when you login through Facebook, create or join an event, enter text into a chat, enter photo’s into a chat, enter video’s into a chat, enter audio files into a chat or live broadcast in an event.

If you register and/or log into the App using third party single sign-on or social network sign-on tools like Facebook Connect (collectively “SNS”), we will obtain the personally identifying information (“Personal Data”) you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize Fanoob to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your SNS accounts and use that information to create your account and account profile page. Depending on the SNS accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such accounts, you understand that by granting us access to those accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your those accounts so that it is available on and through your account.

In addition to the information you provide, when you use Fanoob websites may also collect information through our automatic data collection tools, which may include web beacons, cookies, embedded web links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools (“Data Tools”). These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to Fanoob such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at a Fanoob website. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, clickstream behavior (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take on the websites) and product information. Fanoob may also use some of these Data Tools in emails sent from Fanoob and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.

Fanoob may also contract with third-party advertising networks that collect non-personally identifiable information and Personal Data through Fanoob’s web site and emails and on third-party web sites. Ad networks follow your online activities over time by collecting usage data through Data Tools. They use this information to provide advertisements about products and services tailored to your interests. You may see these advertisements on other web sites. This process also helps us manage and track the effectiveness of Fanoob’s marketing efforts. You may opt out of display advertising partners’ targeted advertising using the following links: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/ if located in the European Union.

Fanoob does not track you across third-party websites and therefore Fanoob does not respond to Do Not Track signals in these circumstances. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content. If you are visiting such sites, many browsers will allow you to set Do Not Track signals so that third parties know that you do not want to be tracked.

How do we use this information?

This includes the metadata provided with your broadcast, such as when and where you broadcast. When you watch others’ broadcasts, information regarding when you watched the video and any comments or quick reaction emoji’s you make on the video is also public.

If you no longer want us to use your information to provide the App to you, you can request that we erase your Personal Data and close your account. Please note that if you request the erasure of your Personal Data:

  • We may retain some of your Personal Data as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention and enhancing safety. For example, if we suspend an account for fraud or safety reasons, we may retain certain information from that account to prevent that user from opening a new account in the future.
  • We may retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations. For example, we may keep some of your information for tax, legal reporting and auditing obligations.

However, attribution of such information to you will be removed. Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
  • Because we maintain the App to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your Personal Data may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.
