Terms of Service 

  1. Privacy

    Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Data Use Policy to make important disclosures about how you can use UniqueThis to share with others and how we collect and can use your content and information.  We encourage you to read the Data Use Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.
     
  2. Sharing Your Content and Information

    You own all of the content and information you post on UniqueThis, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
    1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with UniqueThis (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
    2. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
    3. When you use an application, the application may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you.  We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information.  (To learn more about Platform, including how you can control what information other people may share with applications, read our Data Use Policy and Platform Page.)
    4. When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of UniqueThis, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).

Privacy Policy

What information do we collect? We collect information in two ways:

1. When you give it to us or give us 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 you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using this site on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.
  • You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account, 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.



2. We also get technical information when you use our products or use websites or apps that have features from this site.

  • These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other Internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
    • a. Log Data. When you use this site or go to a webpage or use an app that has features(like our “Share” button), our servers automatically record information (“log data”) including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it.

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 settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit this site. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your account (including personal information about you, such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not.

In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using this site on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data.

You can decide to stop getting these updates by updating your account settings (or through other settings we may provide).
    • b. Help your friends and contacts find you on this site. For example, if you sign up using a Facebook account, we may help your Facebook friends find your account on this site when they first sign up. Or, we may allow people to search for your account using your email address.
    • c. Respond to your questions or comments.

 

  • The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you).



What choices do you have about your information?

  • Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices over your information. If you have an account, many of the choices you have on this are built directly into the product or your account settings. For example, you can:

a. Access and change information in your profile page at any time.

Cookies & other storage technologies 

Cookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones and other devices. Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as "cookies."  
  
We use cookies if you have a UniqueThis account, use the UniqueThis Products, including our website and apps, or visit other websites and apps that use the UniqueThis Products (including the Like button or other UniqueThis Technologies). Cookies enable UniqueThis to offer the UniqueThis Products to you and to understand the information we receive about you, including information about your use of other websites and apps, whether or not you are registered or logged in.  
  
This policy explains how we use cookies and the choices you have. Except as otherwise stated in this policy, the Data Policy will apply to our processing of the data that we collect via cookies.  

 

Why do we use cookies?  

Cookies help us provide, protect and improve the UniqueThis Products, such as by personalising content, tailoring and measuring ads, and providing a safer experience. While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the UniqueThis Products, we use them for the following purposes:  

Authentication  

We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you're logged in so we can make it easier for you to access the UniqueThis Products and show you the appropriate experience and features.  

For example: We use cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate between UniqueThis Pages. Cookies also help us remember your browser so you do not have to keep logging in to UniqueThis and so you can more easily log in to UniqueThis via third-party apps and websites.  

Security, site and product integrity  

We use cookies to help us keep your account, data and the UniqueThis Products safe and secure.  

For example: Cookies can help us identify and impose additional security measures when someone may be attempting to access a UniqueThis account without authorization, for instance, by rapidly guessing different passwords. We also use cookies to store information that allows us to recover your account in the event that you forget your password or to require additional authentication if you tell us that your account has been hacked.  

We also use cookies to combat activity that violates our policies or otherwise degrades our ability to provide the UniqueThis Products.  

For example: Cookies help us fight spam and phishing attacks by enabling us to identify computers that are used to create large numbers of fake UniqueThis accounts. We also use cookies to detect computers infected with malware and to take steps to prevent them from causing further harm. Cookies also help us prevent underage people from registering for UniqueThis accounts.  

Advertising, recommendations, insights and measurement  

We use cookies to help us show ads and to make recommendations for businesses and other organizations to people who may be interested in the products, services or causes they promote.  

For example: Cookies allow us to help deliver ads to people who have previously visited a business's website, purchased its products or used its apps and to recommend products and services based on that activity. Cookies also allow us to limit the number of times that you see an ad so you don't see the same ad over and over again.  

We also use cookies to help measure the performance of ad campaigns for businesses that use the UniqueThis Products.  

For example: We use cookies to count the number of times that an ad is shown and to calculate the cost of those ads. We also use cookies to measure how often people do things such as click on or view ads.  

Cookies help us serve and measure ads across different browsers and devices used by the same person.  

For example: We can use cookies to prevent you from seeing the same ad over and over again across the different devices that you use.  

Cookies also allow us to provide insights about the people who use the UniqueThis Products, as well as the people who interact with the ads, websites and apps of our advertisers and the businesses that use the UniqueThis Products.  

For example: We use cookies to help businesses understand the kinds of people who like their UniqueThis Page or use their apps so they can provide more relevant content and develop features that are likely to be interesting to their customers.  

We also use cookies to help you opt out of seeing ads from UniqueThis based on your activity on third-party websites. Learn more about the information we receive, how we decide which ads to show you on and off the UniqueThis Products and the controls that are available to you.  

Site features and services  

We use cookies to enable the functionality that helps us provide the UniqueThis Products.  

For example: Cookies help us store preferences, know when you've seen or interacted with UniqueThis Products' content and provide you with customized content and experiences. For instance, cookies allow us to make suggestions to you and others, and to customize content on third-party sites that integrate our social plugins. If you are a page administrator, cookies allow you to switch between posting from your personal UniqueThis account and the Page.  

We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your locale.  

For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so that you will see the site in your preferred language.  

Performance  

We use cookies to provide you with the best experience possible.  

For example: Cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly UniqueThis Products load for different people. Cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows and know whether you've enabled high-contrast mode, so that we can render our sites and apps correctly.  

Analytics and research  

We use cookies to better understand how people use the UniqueThis Products so that we can improve them.  

For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the UniqueThis service, analyze which parts of the UniqueThis Products people find most useful and engaging, and identify features that could be improved.
