Gutrgoo Privacy Policy

There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a Gutrgoo Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

Information we collect

When you create a Gutrgoo account, you provide us with some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On Gutrgoo, your name and username are always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. We shall use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You can use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from Gutrgoo. You can also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website.

Information shared by you

Gutrgoo will use information we collect to provide, develop, and improve the Services behalf and in accordance with any other instructions from you. Examples of such use include: 

We may also use the information we collect in order to operate, maintain, and improve the systems and infrastructure that provide the Services. You authorize us to do so and acknowledge that this may also result in improvements to the Gutrgoo Services, since centralized systems and infrastructure support the. For example, we may use crash logs from your use of the Services to identify and fix bugs that may also be present in the Services. 

Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications: 

We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have private conversations with other Gutrgoo users. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, such as by sending and receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. Please note that if you interact with public Gutrgoo content shared with you via Direct Message, for instance by liking a Post shared via Direct Message, those interactions may be public. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate privately, please remember that recipients may copy, store, and re-share the contents of your communications.

Location Information: 

We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your Posts and in your Gutrgoo profile. You may also tell us your location when you set your trend location on website. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as allowing you to Post with your location, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow. 

Links: 

Our Site may contain links to Internet sites or third party applications or widgets operated by other companies that we don’t own or control. These links might have been added by us or you, such as in a submitted comment. Regardless of who added a given link, we’re not responsible for the privacy practices of websites or other services operated by third parties. Once you leave the Site via such a link or access a third party application or widget, you should check the applicable privacy policy of that third party to determine how they will handle any information they collect from you.

Cookies are small bits of information that we might place on your computer. We would use cookies to identify your Internet browser, store Users’ preferences, and determine whether you have installed sufficient enabling software needed to access certain parts of the Service. Data in cookies may be read to authenticate user sessions or provide features of the Service.

Advertising: 

Our Services are supported by advertising. We may use the information described in this Privacy Policy to help make our advertising more relevant to you, to measure its effectiveness, and to help recognize your devices to serve you ads on and off of Gutrgoo. We do not use the content you share privately in Direct Messages to serve you ads. Our Gutrgoo Ads Policy also prohibits advertisers from targeting ads based on categories we consider sensitive, such as race, religion, politics, sex life, or health. Gutrgoo adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (also referred to as “interest-based advertising”). If you prefer, you can opt out of interest-based advertising by unchecking Personalize Ads in your Personalization and Data settings. We will not use information from the browser (and for logged in users, the account) on which you opt out for interest-based advertising, and that browser or account will not be eligible to receive interest-based ads from Gutrgoo.

Third-Parties and Affiliates:

 If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Gutrgoo stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.

We also provide you with the opportunity to share a product or your wish list with a friend. If you choose to share a product or a wish list with your friend we will ask for your friend’s email address in order to automatically send them a one-time email containing the product or your wish list. Gutrgoo stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

Accessing and Modifying Your Personal Information

If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools and account settings to access, correct, delete, or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account. You can download certain account information, including your post, by following the instructions here. You can learn more about the interests we have inferred about you in Your Gutrgoo Data.

You can also permanently delete your Gutrgoo account. When deactivated, your account, including your name, username, and public profile, is not viewable on website. For up to 30 days after deactivation it is still possible to restore your account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated. Absent a separate arrangement between you and us to extend your deactivation period, after 30 days, we begin the process of deleting your account from our systems, which can take up to a week.

Keep in mind that search engines and other third parties may still retain copies of your public information, like your user profile information and public post, even after you have deleted the information from the Gutrgoo Services or deactivated your account.

Changes to this Policy

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 the website. If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you via an @Gutrgoo update or email to the email address associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
