What Information We Collect

When you use our Services, we may collect and store information from you directly.

We may collect information from you when you register directly with us or through a third-party Social Networking Software (“SNS”) such as Facebook. That information may include, among other things, your full name, email addresses, age, birthday, password, phone numbers, schools attended or attending, device identifiers, and other information you provide.  We may also collect information from your user profile, including, among other information, a photo, usernames, gender, geographic information, likes, interests, bio, country, character names, email addresses, contact information for and links to other sites.  Depending on how you access our site, we may also collect device identification information, including MAC address and IP address.  If you choose to connect your mobile device contacts or address book with our Services, we will collect, synchronize and store your contacts or address book information on our servers.

 

Payment Information

If you purchase a license to use virtual currency and assets, we will collect the billing and financial information necessary to process the fee for those virtual items.  That information may include your postal and email addresses. Our Terms of Service explain our policies and terms related to billing.

 

Information About You From an SNS

When you use the Services in conjunction with an SNS such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Google, you allow us to access information from your profile for that site. The information you allow us to access varies by SNS and the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You should refer to the applicable SNS for more information about the settings at the applicable SNS.  Depending on your privacy settings, we may access and store some or all of the following information: your public data, full name, your profile picture or its URL, your user ID number, the user ID numbers and other public data for your friends, the login email address you provided to the SNS, your geographic location, your gender, and your birthday.

SMS Notifications and Similar Notifications

We may collect and store the information you provide, including your telephone number, when you sign up to have SMS notifications sent directly to your mobile phone. These messages notify you of application activity, provide application updates and other relevant information and may allow you to use the applicable application on your phone. The sending of SMS notifications may be handled through a third party service provider.

With your consent, we may send push notifications to your mobile device to provide application updates and other relevant messages. You may be able to manage push notifications from the applicable application or from your device’s settings.

If you have chosen to synchronize your mobile device contacts with our Services we may send SMS notifications directly to your friends to invite them to our Services and alert them to relevant application activity.

Some of our Services have direct messaging features built in (In-Band Messages). When available we may send In-Band Messages directly to your mobile device to notify you of application activity, advertisements, offers and other relevant communication.

 

Technical and Usage Information

When you access our Services, we collect information about your mobile device or computer system, including MAC address, IP address and mobile device ID.  We also collect usage statistics about your interactions with the Services. This information is typically collected through the use of server log files or web log files (“Log Files”), mobile device software development kits and tracking technologies like browser cookies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information. Some of the cookies the Services place on your computer are linked to your user ID number.

At this time our Services do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include ‘do not track’ instructions.


How We Collect Information

We collect information in various ways, including the following:

Information Collected Directly From You and Other Users

When you use one of our applications, we collect and store certain information that you provide directly, through an SNS, or through a third party. We also collect information about your use of the Services and your interaction with other user.

We also collect technical information about your usage of the Services, and we use various technologies to collect information about cookies, IP addresses, device type, device identifiers, browser types, browser language, pages accessed, URLs, platform type, the clicks, domain names, landing pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, application state and the date and time of activity with our applications, and other similar information. We may associate this information with your user ID number for our internal use.

We may also employ other technologies including web beacons and tracking pixels. If you so desire, you can adjust settings on your web browser to limit the type of cookies allowed. Please note that companies delivering advertisements in our applications or on our websites may also use cookies or other technologies, and those practices are subject to their own policies.

Communications Features

You may be able to take part in certain activities on our Services that allow you to communicate and share information with us and other users of our Services. These include participating in forums and message boards, posting comments to other users’ profiles or boards, sending private or group messages or invitations, chatting with other users, and posting photos, videos and other files. We may record and store archives of these communications on our servers. You acknowledge and consent to the recording and storage of these communications.

Other Sources

We may collect or receive information from other sources including (i) other Juxta users who choose to upload their mobile device contacts and (ii) third party information providers. This information may be used to supplement your profile and it will be combined with other information we collect.

 

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use your information primarily to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience, including in one or more of the following ways: to create your accounts and allow play of our applications, to suggest and make connections with other users, to enable user-to-user communications, to provide technical support and respond to user inquiries, to prevent fraud or potentially illegal activities, and enforce our terms of service, to deliver and target advertising, to notify users of application updates, to provide application leader boards and promote application user achievements, to solicit input and feedback to improve our products and services and customize your user experience, and to inform users about new products or promotional offers.

 

If you have provided your email address or phone number to us, we may use it to respond to (i) customer support inquiries, and (ii) keep you informed of your activity, including comments from friends, notifications about application status. Some messages, such as invites for friends to join you in an application, may include your name, school network and profile photo. We may also send promotional email messages and promotional SMS messages directly or in partnership with parties other than Juxta.

 

Sharing Your Information

We may share your information, including some personal information, with third parties in the following circumstances:

Some of your profile information may be exposed publicly. This includes: your name, profile photos, username, school or network name, bio and descriptions of your activity.

Your information and your online communications may be accessed and monitored as necessary to provide the Services and may be disclosed or reported: (i) if we have a good faith belief that we are required to disclose the information by law, (ii) if we believe that the Services are being used to commit a crime, (iii) if we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the health or safety of a person or the general public, and (v) in order to protect the rights or property of Juxta, including to enforce our Terms of Service.

If you give us your consent, we may actively share personal information with third party advertisers for their direct marketing purposes. We may share aggregated or anonymous information and certain technical information to develop and deliver targeted advertising in the Services and on the websites of third parties. We may also allow advertisers to collect those types of information within the Services and they may share it with us. We may use this information for behavioral advertising and for web analytics. Our collection, use, and disclosure of anonymous or aggregated information are not subject to any of the restrictions in this privacy policy.
We may display an “offer wall” that is hosted by an offer wall provider. The offer wall allows third party advertisers to provide virtual currency to users in exchange for interacting with an advertisement or for completing a marketing offer that may include signing up for an account with one of those advertisers. These are not offers made by us. We may display these offers to you based on certain information, such as your geographic area or anonymous demographic information. If you click on one of these advertisements, you will no longer be on a site hosted by Juxta or a partnering SNS.
We may provide your information to third party companies to perform services on our behalf, including payment processing, data analysis, message delivery, hosting services, customer service, and marketing.
If we sell all or a portion of our business, we may transfer all of your information, including personal information, to the successor organization.

 

Security of Your Information

We implement security measures we believe are reasonable to protect your information. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and you need to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. No website, mobile application or Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches or other type of misuse will never occur. Any transmission of data to us is at your own risk.


How to Access and Update Your Information

If you have accounts on our Services you can access and edit the information you provided to us through individual settings in the Services. If you want to delete your accounts and information on our Services, please contact us directly. To manage the information we receive about you from an SNS you will need to follow the instructions at that the SNS. Once we receive your information from an SNS, that information is stored and used by us in accordance with this privacy policy.


Our Policy Toward Children

Our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from such children. Children under the age of 13 should not use our websites or applications at any time. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13 we will delete such information as quickly as possible.


International Operations

We may transfer data to foreign affiliates, partners or vendors. If you are located outside of the United States of America and choose to use our Services and share information with us, we may transfer your data to the United States and process it there. By using our Services you agree to be bound by all the terms in this privacy policy.


Privacy Policies of Linked Sites and Advertisers

Our Services may contain third-party services and advertisements from companies other than Juxta that may link to their own websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, security, or the content of such websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly. We are not responsible for the actions of third-party advertisers and service providers.


Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. If we make material changes to our privacy policy, we will notify you and other users by posting the changes on the Juxta Labs websites and Services or by using the contact information you have on file with us and will indicate when such changes will become effective.  By continuing to use our Services you are agreeing to be bound by any changes or revisions made to this privacy policy.


California Privacy Rights

We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by “opting in” to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our Services. If you do ask us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

PURCHASES AND FEES

5.1.            Purchases.  In the Service you may purchase, with legal tender, a license to use Virtual Items or other goods or services. You may also obtain a license to use Virtual Items by redeeming virtual currency. PURCHASES OR REDEMPTIONS OF THIRD PARTY VIRTUAL CURRENCY TO ACQUIRE A LICENSE TO USE VIRTUAL ITEMS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. For Virtual Items, your order will represent an offer to us to purchase a license for the relevant services which may be accepted by us when we make the Virtual Items available in your account for you to use in our applications or debit your credit card, whichever comes first. Your license to Virtual Items for use in Juxta applications is a service provided by Juxta that commences upon acceptance by Juxta of your purchase or redemption of third party virtual currency. By ordering a license to use Virtual Items you agree and accept that Juxta will provide it to you promptly following completion of your purchase. If you reside in the European Union and you purchase a product or service from Juxta, you may have the right to withdraw from a purchase within seven calendar days, commencing on the day after the date of purchase (the “Cooling Off Period”), but you lose your right of withdrawal if the performance of the services begins before the end of the Cooling Off Period. Therefore, if you purchase a license to use Virtual Items from us, your right of withdrawal is lost as the performance of our services begins promptly once your purchase is completed.

5.2.            Payment of Fees. You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an account registered to you. Juxta may revise the pricing for the goods and services it licenses to you through the Service at any time. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT JUXTA IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE MONEY OR OTHER COMPENSATION FOR UNUSED VIRTUAL ITEMS WHEN AN ACCOUNT IS CLOSED, WHETHER SUCH CLOSURE WAS VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY.

 

THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING.

6.1.            Third Party Advertisements. You understand that the Service and Juxta applications may feature advertisements from Juxta or third parties. Juxta’s disclosure of information for third party advertising is addressed in Juxta’s Privacy Policy.

6.2.            Links and Your Relationship with Advertisers.  Juxta may provide links on the Service to third party websites or vendors who may invite you to participate in an offer in return for receiving an optional component of the Service or upgrades (such as in-application virtual currency). Any charges or obligations you incur in your dealings with these third parties are your responsibility. Juxta makes no representation or warranty regarding any content, goods, or services provided by any third party even if linked to or from our Service, and Juxta will not be liable for any claim relating to any third party content, goods, or services. The linked sites are not under the control of Juxta and may collect data or solicit personal information from you. Juxta is not responsible for their content, business practices, privacy policies, or for the collection, use, or disclosure of any information those sites may collect. Further, the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Juxta of these linked sites.

COPYRIGHT NOTICES/COMPLAINTS.  We typically respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

In addition, Juxta accommodates and does not interfere with standard technical measures used by copyright owners to protect their materials.

You may also be given additional notice, such as an email message or messaging within the Service, of any changes. You will be deemed to have accepted such changes by continuing to use the Service. Except as otherwise stated, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted. Juxta may also revise other policies, codes, or rules at any time.
