This Policy describes:
- The types of information we may collect or that you may provide when you download, install, register with, access or use the OpinionUP mobile application (the “App”).
- Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.
This Policy applies only to information we collect in this App and in e-mail, text and other electronic communications sent through or in connection with this App.
This Policy DOES NOT apply to information that:
- We collect offline or on any other OpinionUP apps or websites, including but not limited to, websites you may access through this App, the OpinionUP website and other websites;
- you provide to third parties; or
- is information collected directly by third parties.
Our websites and these third parties have their own privacy policies.
Grounds for Use of Personal Information
We rely on the following legal bases for processing and use of your Personal Information:
- Performance of a Contract: We may collect and use your Personal Information that is necessary for Us to enter into a contract with you or to fulfill a contract that you may have entered with us, or to take steps requested by you prior to entering into a contract with Us.
- Legitimate Interests: We may use your Personal Information as necessary for our legitimate interests consistent with the products, services, and content on the App, on the website, on our social media pages, in email, text, and other electronic messages between you and the foregoing sites.
- Consent: We also may collect and share your information with your consent. To withdraw your consent, you may contact us via our contact information, which is provided to you below.
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You control the personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, email address, gender, zip code, political affiliation, birth year, ethnicity, sexual orientation, picture, and a brief biography (“Personal Information”), that you share with us. You can correct, delete, or modify this data at any time. You can also delete your account. We also provide you tools to restrict or withdraw consent where applicable for the use of data you have provided to us. And we provide easy ways for you to contact us.
If you are a registered user of the App, 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. If you have granted us consent to access and use your personal data, you can withdraw that consent at any time. You can request that we stop using your personal data for certain or all purposes, or for a certain amount of time. You may also send us an e-mail at email@example.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may be required to delete your account depending on the type of request to delete Personal Information. If you request or require account deletion, your account will be deactivated and then deleted within ten (10) business days. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. You also may delete your own account- however, to delete your Personal Information from our servers, you will have to contact us directly with your request as set forth below.
You may provide information to be published or displayed (“Posted“) on public areas of the App or sent via direct messages to other users of the App (collectively, “User Contributions“). Your User Contributions are Posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. Although you may set certain privacy settings for such information by logging into your account profile, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of third parties with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
If you delete your User Contributions from the App, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other App users – for example, when you share a post or send a message to specific friends or accounts, they can download, screenshot, or reshare that content to others across or off our App, in person or online. Also, when you comment on someone else’s post or react to their content, your comment or reaction is visible to anyone who can see the other person’s content, and that person can change the audience later. Proper access and use of information provided on the App, including User Contributions, is governed by our Mobile App End-User License Agreement.
Keep in mind that third parties to whom we transmitted your data with your consent (as part of Aggregate Information, as defined below) may still retain copies of your Personal Information even after you have deleted the information from, or deleted, your account with OpinionUP. If you would like a copy of the Personal Information we have collected about you, or if you need a list of entities to whom your personal data has been transmitted as part of Aggregate Information, please contact us directly at the contact information below.
Your direct messages to other users of the App are stored on our servers and identified by your User ID. If you delete your account, your messages will be saved on our servers; please contact us directly as set forth below to request deletion of your messages from our servers.
Retention of Information and Materials
We retain the Personal Information and materials we may collect and you provide us for no longer than is reasonably necessary for us to achieve the purposes for which you have provided it to us, or to the extent reasonably necessary for us to protect our rights, or as may be required to fulfill our legal obligations. If you do not want us to continue to collect or maintain your Personal Information, you must delete your account and stop using the App.

- advertisers, ad networks and ad servers;
- analytics companies;

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

- to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of OpinionUP’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by OpinionUP about our App users is among the assets transferred;
