1. General

Mookie App will keep your passwords and personal contact information private and secure using the most modern and up-to-date web storage and security systems. We will never sell or share any personal or individual information about you, including any contact information.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications ("Third Party Services") that you elect to access through the Products or to individuals that we don't manage or employ. While we try to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we don't take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of all Third Party Services you access.

2. How Mookie App Collects Information

a. You give us information or permission to obtain it. When you sign up for or use our Products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, email address (used to sign up), and any other information you provide. If you’re using Mookie App on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

In addition, you may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to Mookie App which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (e.g., your friends or contacts). The information we obtain from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

b. We get technical information when you use our Products. When you use Mookie App, our servers automatically record information about your interaction with our Products (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you use it to access Mookie App. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web page you were visiting before you came to Mookie App, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, and how you used Mookie App.

Mookie App may use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Mookie App account or your browser) or similar technologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preferences or other Mookie App settings so you don’t have to set them up every time you visit Mookie App.

In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Mookie App on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you are using and its settings. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

c. We will never email you to ask for your password or other Account information; if you receive such an email, forward it to us.

3. How Mookie App Uses Collected Information

Mookie App uses the information we collect to provide our Products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Mookie App and our users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a Product, which can help us understand which version is better.

We also use the collected information to offer you customized content, including helping you discover breeds, dogs, items, content or people you might like or provide you with tailored advertising. For example, if you have indicated that you are interested in agility sport, we may suggest agility-related materials or content.

In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP Address into a rough geo-location. We may use location information to improve and personalize the Products for you.

The collected information is also used to:

  • Send you updates (such as notifications when certain social activity is initiated on your content within Mookie App), newsletters, marketing materials, and other information that may be of interest to you. For example, depending on your email notification settings, we may send you weekly updates that include content related to you as a Mookie App user. You always can decide to stop getting these updates by updating your account settings or through other settings we may provide).

  • Respond to your questions or comments.

  • Diagnose or fix technology problems

  • Remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit.

  • Provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing.

  • Provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of Mookie App

  • Monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns

4. What choices do you have about your information?

Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices about your information. If you have a Mookie App account, many of the choices you have on Mookie App are built directly in to the Products or your account settings. For example, you can:

  • Access and change information in your profile page at any time, and choose whether your profile page is available to search engines;

  • Link or unlink your Mookie App account from an account on another service (e.g., Facebook or Twitter). For some services (like Facebook), you can also choose whether or not to publish your activity on Mookie App to that service.

  • Delete your account at any time. When you delete your account, we’ll deactivate it and remove your dogs and their profiles and all content you have posted from Mookie App. We may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam). You understand it may take a few days for third party search engines or other services to remove the content from their index.

In addition, you may have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access Mookie App. For example:

  • The browser you use may provide you with the ability to control cookies or other types of local data storage;

  • Your mobile device may provide you with choices around how and whether location or other data is shared with us.

To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by the device or software provider.

5. How is your information shared?

Mookie App is a platform for sharing information about you and your dogs and connecting with other people and offers related to your dogs. When you create public content about your dogs and share it via Mookie App, anyone can view it. You may also provide us with profile page information that anyone can view.

The limited instances where we may share your personal information include:

  • When we have your consent. This includes sharing information with other services (like Facebook or Twitter) when you have chosen to link to your Mookie App account to those services or publish your activity on Mookie App to them. For example, you can choose to publish your Mookie App content to Facebook or Twitter.
  • We may employ third party companies or individuals to process personal information on our behalf based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy. For example, we may share data with a security consultant to help us get better at identifying spam.
  • If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Mookie App; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy.

We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners or others. For example, we may tell a business using Mookie App how many people have created dog profiles, or the percentage of people who own a specific breed on our site.

6. Our Policy on Children’s Information

Mookie App is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us.

7. How do we make changes to this policy?

We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we will post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Mookie App after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or obtain your consent as required by law.
