This Privacy Policy (this "Privacy Policy") represents a binding contract between you and Joota ("Joota"). This Privacy Policy governs the information provided by you at the following web site: http://www.joota.com, together with all web pages generated or found at such web site (the "Site"), but does not govern web pages owned or controlled by third parties that you may visit before or after the Site.

  1. Personal Information.

    • Joota Account. For some activities within the Service (as such term is defined in the Terms of Use for the Site), including, without limitation, (i) uploading content, (ii) posting comments, (iii) creating conversations, (iv) flagging discussions, (v) posting photos or videos, or (vi) creating links, you will need a personal account ("Account"). Joota asks for some personal information when you create your Account, including, but not limited to, your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
    • Usage Information. When you use the Service, Joota may record information about your usage of the Service, including, without limitation, conversations you create, which other users you communicate with, the posts you comment upon, and information you display about yourself, as well as information and discussions you access by and through the Service. If you are logged into the Service, Joota may associate that information with your Account. In order to ensure the quality of the Service, Joota may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
    • Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or other content, including conversations, that you voluntarily disclose and make public online at the Site may be collected and used by others.
  2. Uses

    If you submit personal information to Joota, Joota may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Joota, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to Joota.

    Joota does not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. Joota may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Joota changes or for customer service purposes). Your use of the Site is evidence of your assent to Joota's use of your email address as provided in this Privacy Policy.

    Joota may use cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit Joota; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of Joota's marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.


  3. Information that is publicly avaiable

    When you create your Account, some information about your Account and your Account activity will be provided to other users of Joota. This may include, but is not limited to, your preferred display name or nickname; country; gender; your uploaded avatar image; content and websites that you share on Joota.com; conversations and comments and personal profile information that you contribute on Joota.com

    Your Account name (also known as Display Name), not your email address, will be displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities within the Service or on the Site, such as when you post comments or host conversations through the Service.


  4. Your Choices

    If you have an Account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences, and privacy settings at any time by visiting your Account profile page. You may control the information that is available to other users at any time by editing your Account.

    You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through the Service, in which case you can still explore Joota, but Joota may not be able to provide certain Services that are only offered to holders of an Account.


  5. Advertising on Joota

    Joota strives to provide you with a relevant and useful Site. Joota may use a range of information including, but not limited to, cookies, web beacons, IP addresses, usage data and other non-personal information about your computer or device (such as browser type and operating system) to provide you with relevant content and advertising.
