Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in Phoozl® (“PhoozL” or “Phoozl”). Phoozl owns and operates website properties located at www.phoozl.com and elsewhere on the Internet (collectively referred to as the “Sites”), and also provides software applications for Facebook and other platforms, including Phoozl’s Alphabetography Photo Challenge and for downloadable applications from the App Store (the “Apps”). The Sites and Apps, together with any other products and services provided by Phoozl, are collectively referred to as the “Phoozl Service.”

The use of the Phoozl Service is subject to the provisions of this Privacy Policy, including any amendments or updates hereto. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Phoozl Terms & Conditions. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Phoozl Service. By using any of the Phoozl Service, products or services, you signify your understanding of and agreement with this Privacy Policy and to our Terms & Conditions.

BY USING, ACCESSING OR DOWNLOADING THE PHOOZl SERVICE, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH HEREIN. Phoozl reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time and without notice, and it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy for any changes. Your use of the Phoozl Service following any amendment of this Privacy Policy will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms.

Please note that any video, image, or other content posted at the direction of users onto the Phoozl Service becomes published content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.

Use of certain features of the Phoozl Service may require submission of certain personal information, including your first and last name, email address, a nickname (or other user ID) and a password. Any information you provide to us as part of your use of the Phoozl Service will be collected and stored as entered. The web browser or client software that you use to access the Phoozl Service may transmit certain geographic information and information regarding the capabilities or features of your computer and/or software to us. We may also track other types of information, such as what games users play, how long our users have used the Phoozl Service, the last time a user visited the Phoozl Service, etc. Phoozl may also collect or receive additional non-personally identifiable usage information specifically related to the use of a particular feature or offering on the Phoozl Service, and responses to the offerings and advertisements presented on the Phoozl Service.

The information is used to operate and improve the features, offerings and content presented to you by Phoozl; to personalize the content and advertisements provided to you; to fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services; to communicate with you and respond to your inquiries; to conduct research about your use of the Phoozl Service; and to help offer you other products, programs, or services that may be of interest, including but not limited to Apps for Facebook and other platforms. By using such Apps, Phoozl may have access to your Facebook profile and other information that your Facebook privacy settings are configured to expose to Facebook Apps, and user activity within the Facebook applications.

Please note that Phoozl may use your personally identifiable information to present offers to you on behalf of business partners and advertisers. Your information may be accessed and disclosed if and as required by legal procedures, and as determined by Phoozl in good faith. Furthermore, Phoozl may transfer personally identifiable information in the event of a transfer of ownership of Phoozl or any of its websites or products, in which case the information could become subject to a different privacy policy. Phoozl may use cookies or similar technologies to enhance and personalize your experience of the Phoozl Service, including to operate and improve offerings through the Phoozl Service; to help authenticate your identity when you visit and transact with the Phoozl Service; to remember your preferences and registration information; to present and help measure and research the effectiveness of the various offerings, advertisements, and e-mail communications (by determining which e-mails you open and act upon); and to customize the content and advertisements provided to you.

Phoozl does not require that you accept cookies, and you may disable cookies at any time. However, some functionality of the Phoozl Service may be impaired if you decline to accept cookies.

Phoozl or its advertisers may use other companies known as third party ad servers to help present advertisements online in connection with the Phoozl Service. These third party ad servers may use cookies or similar technologies to help present such advertisements, and to help measure and research the advertisements’ effectiveness. The use of these technologies by these third party ad servers is subject to their own privacy policies, not Phoozl’s. By way of example, Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on Phoozl’s Sites. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to Phoozl’s users based on their visit to Phoozl’s Sites and/or other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Phoozl may provide its business partners with contact details for direct marketing purposes of relevant services, products, and programs. If you no longer wish your information to be shared, please let us know.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Phoozl does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information on the Phoozl Service from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of the Phoozl Service is specifically directed to persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the Phoozl Service at any time or in any manner without the involvement of a parent or guardian.

If Phoozl learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Phoozl Service without verified parental consent, then Phoozl will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

This Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices exercised by other providers of products or services, advertisers or other websites, or companies/people that Phoozl does not own or control, or does not employ or manage.

The Phoozl Service is hosted in the United States. If you are accessing the Phoozl Service from a jurisdiction with privacy laws or regulations that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the Phoozl Service, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to that transfer.

Phoozl uses your username, e-mail address, and password to uniquely identify you as a user on any Phoozl Site. We may use or display your username for the purposes of rankings, competitions or sweepstakes, chat identification, and/or game high scores.

We may use your contact information to process our newsletters and/or e-mail campaigns. Your contact information will allow us to notify you about new features, enhancements, resolution of site problems, handle and/or route your customer support questions and issues, and inform you of upgrade opportunities, sweepstakes, contests, prizes, and/or special events.

We may use other identifying information collected to calculate aggregate statistics about our user community or for security purposes.

As Phoozl continues to grow, we might sell or buy certain business units. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred assets, but would remain subject to the protections described in this Privacy Policy (unless you consent otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Phoozl or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information would in most cases be one of the transferred assets.

Websites that link to or from the Phoozl Service may collect personal information about you. This Phoozl Privacy Policy does not apply to, and cannot control the activities of, other websites.

Phoozl Sites may operate message boards and/or chat areas where users can exchange ideas and communicate with each another. When posting to a message board or chat area, the information is being made publicly available in an online environment. Any information posted is the sole responsibility of the individual user.

This Privacy Policy as well as the Terms & Conditions were last updated on May 5, 2012.
