Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting personally identifiable information are to provide you with the product and services made available through the Site, including, but not limited, to the Service, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account, if you have one.
Information Collected Upon Registration
If you desire to have access to the Site, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to Gigidi. This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign up for the Service, or if you desire to receive marketing materials and information. Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include your IP address, full name, password, email address, zip code, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.
Once a member, you may provide additional information in the profile section, including but not limited to your bio, your location, your personal web site, and interests, if you have them. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself in the Gigidi system. If you contact us by email through the Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and may use your email address, and any information that you provide to us in your message, to respond to you.
Name and Profile Picture Gigidi is designed to have people who are friends easily connect with one another. You can only connect with people on Gigidi if you have a friend's email address and they accept your friend request. Your name is not searchable to the public. However, your name and profile picture will be displayed to friends of your friends if you decide to comment on any of your friends' posts, so please practice discretion. If you are uncomfortable with sharing your profile picture, you should delete it (or not add one). You can also control who can find you when searching on Gigidi by adjusting your privacy settings in your account settings.
Birthdate In addition to name and email address, we require you to provide your gender and birth date during the registration process. We ask for your date of birth to verify that you are 13 or older. Because your date of birth and gender are required, you cannot delete them. You can, however, edit your profile to hide all (or part) of such fields from other users.
Editing Your Profile You may change or remove your profile information at any time by going to your account page and clicking "Update" upon finishing any changes you wish to make. Information will be updated immediately.
Content One of the primary reasons people use Gigidi is to share content with others. Examples include when you upload a photo, share a link, or make a comment. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on Gigidi (such as photos), please remove the metadata before uploading the content.
Access Device and Browser Information When you access Gigidi from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.
Posts and Comments by Me Your friends can see all the posts you make on your Gigidi page. Additionally, all comments you make on your own items can be seen by all of your friends, as well as comments made on a friend's item can be seen by all of their friends. If you do not want your comments to be seen by Gigidi users who are not your friends, do not post any comments.
Limitations on removal Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others or it was copied or stored by other users. However, your name will no longer be associated with that information on Gigidi. Additionally, we may retain certain information to prevent identity theft and other misconduct even if deletion has been requested.
Use of Contact Information In addition, we may use your contact information to market to you, and provide you with information about, our products and services, including but not limited to our Service. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
Log Data When you visit the Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the web-pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Site and of our Service, and for the Site's technical administration. We do not associate your IP address with any other personally identifiable information to identify you personally, except in case of violation of the Terms of Service.
Deleting Your Account When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from Gigidi. You will lose all information, friends, and posts associated with that account. You may deactivate your account on your account page by clicking "Unsubscribe."
