By accessing any part of the Service, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions described below (this “Privacy Policy”) and the terms and conditions of our terms of service (the “Terms of Service”). If you do not agree to any of these terms, you should not use the Service. This Privacy Policy applies to all users, including both users who are simply viewing content available via the Service and users who have registered as members of kpakpakpa.com.

Purpose

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, the purpose of this Privacy Policy is to describe how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do. If you do not understand any aspects of our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us at help@kpakpakpa.com.

Personal Information

When your register with us and become a member of kpakpakpa.com, and choose to be an active participant of the community (i.e instruct or read instructions, post questions, answer questions e.t.c), we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you. This includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, but does not include your credit card number of billing information.

 

In order to send you e-mail from kpakpakpa.com, we need your e-mail address. To provide you with additional services, we may also request your name, geographical coordinates, and telephone number. We will not give your name, email, or other personal information to unaffiliated third parties except with your consent or as otherwise set forth in this privacy policy. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law or when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process that we receive or to protect our interests or the safety of others. In addition, we may provide personal information to employees, consultants or other business or persons for the purpose of processing such information on our behalf. In such circumstances, we require that these parties agree to protect the confidentiality of such information and to comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Other Information

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Service, and to analyze traffic patterns on the Service. We use cookies, web beacons and similar technology to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit. We may also use web beacons and similar technology in emails that we send to you in order to track whether the emails have been opened. In addition, our web servers track information about the visits to the Service. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to the Service, the daily requests we receive for particular files on the Service, and what geographical areas those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others.

 

Information and content that you disclose

Our websites and applications allow you to post “likes,” comments, profile information (including profile images), instructions, questions, answers, videos, photographs, images, design files, and other content for others to see. In some cases you can limit who can view or access information and content you post. In other cases, the information and content might be available to registered members of the application or website, or even to the general public.

 

We urge you to be careful and thoughtful when deciding to disclose personal information, or any other information, on our applications and websites. If you are posting information you do not want to be disclosed publicly, make sure you are using a website or application that allows you to control who sees information you have posted.

 

Please note that in our application and website, your name, user name, profile image, or email address may be posted along with any message you post. Information posted on kpakpakpa.com will be public by default. If you choose to share personal information in this way, the access limitations, security protocols and other commitments in this privacy statement will not apply to the information shared.

 

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users for any reason. Your profile page is typically publicly available, although you have the ability to change the settings to limit access to these areas. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these or any other public venues.

For example, if you choose to sign up for a free kpakpakpa.com account, you may have a Profile page on the site, containing your Full Name and some basic information including your location and bio. You may also add additional optional information to your Profile. You may control what type of Profile information is shown to other through your Account Settings. Any information you choose to provide as part of your profile should reflect how much you want other kpakpakpa.com users to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your profile information at any time.

Third Party Advertising

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Service. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements on the Service and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, third-party advertisers may also place or recognize a unique “cookie” on your browser, or use other technologies such as Java scripts or web beacons.

Other Sites

The Service may contain links to other Web sites or services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites or services, and you should review the privacy policy of each such Web site or service to make sure that you are comfortable with it before providing any personal information. For instance, some instructions may be posted in video form and a youtube video could be used, such video content is subject to YouTube’s privacy policy.

 

Children’s Privacy

You must be at least 13 years old to register to use the Service. Accordingly, we do not collect any personal information from children.

 

Social sign on and social networking

We may allow you to sign in using a social networking platform account (such as Facebook, Google+ or Twitter). Social sign-on features may make creating an account with us faster for you by pre-populating our registration or user profile form with information you provided to the social networking platform. The first time you use a social sign-on service, the social media platform typically explains what information will be shared with us.

Also, we have pages on many social networking platforms where you can visit and communicate with us. We may collect information when you visit our social networking pages. We will use this and social sign-on information for the purposes described in this privacy statement. Be sure to review the privacy and data usage policies of any social networking platform you use to learn more about its personal information practices and your options.
