When this policy mentions “we” or “us,” it refers to the controller of your information under this policy. If you live in the United States, your information is controlled by MyQme LLC, 1201 Orange St.Suite 814 Wilmington, Delaware USA
You alone control and are responsible for the content you submit through the Services, as provided in the Terms of Service and QmeLocal Rules. Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate. In some of these countries, the privacy and data protection laws and rules regarding when government authorities may access data may vary from those in the country where you live.
Basic Account Information: If you choose to create an QmeLocal account through QmeLocal.com or on a “Powered by QmeLocal” environment, you must provide us with some personal information, such as your name, business name, business address, password, email address, or phone number. On QmeLocal, your name and business name are always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. Some of our features, such as searching and viewing public QmeLocal user profiles, do not require you to create an account.
Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features, for example, for login verification for QmeLocal via SMS. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from QmeLocal. You may also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. Your account settings control how others can find you on QmeLocal.
Additional Information: You may choose to provide us with additional information to help improve and personalize your experience across our Services. We may later personalize content, such as making suggestions based on imported information provided by you. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your account on our Services to your account on another service, the other service may send us information that you authorize for use in the Services. This information may enable us to crosspost or otherwise help us improve the Services, and is deleted from our Services within a few weeks of your disconnecting from our Services your account on the other service.
Displaying and Handling Public Information: Most of the information you provide us through QmeLocal is information you are asking us to make public. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Services public for as long as you do not delete it, but we generally give you settings or features to make information more private if you want. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public.
Links: We may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
QmeLocal for Web Data: We may personalize the Services for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate QmeLocal content. When you view our content on these websites, we may receive Log Data that includes the web page you visited. We never associate this web browsing history with your name, email address, or phone number, and we delete, obfuscate, or aggregate it after no longer than 30 days. We may use interests or other information that we derive from this data to improve our Services and personalize content for you, such as suggestions for people to follow, advertising, and other content you may be interested in.
Third-Parties and Affiliates: We may receive information about you from third parties, such as other QmeLocal users, partners (including ad partners), or our corporate affiliates. For example, other users may share or disclose information about you, such as when they mention you or share media that has you in it. Our ad partners and affiliates may share information with us such as a browser cookie ID, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of an email address, as well as demographic or interest data and content viewed or actions taken on a website or app. Our ad partners, particularly our advertisers, may enable us to collect similar information directly from their website or app by integrating our advertising technology.
Personalizing Across Your Devices: When you log into your account with a browser or device, we will associate that browser or device with your account for purposes such as authentication and personalization. Depending on your settings, we may also personalize your experience on, and based on information from, other browsers or devices besides the ones you use to log into QmeLocal. For example, if you visit websites with sports content on your laptop, we may show you sports-related ads on QmeLocal for Android.
User Consent or Direction: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account or when you direct us to share your feedback with a business. When you sign up for or log in to a third-party application, you are directing us to share your contact information, such as your phone number, with that application. If you’ve shared information with another user who accesses QmeLocal through a third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-party service.
Non-Personal, Aggregated, or Device-Level Information: We may share or disclose non-personal, aggregated, or device-level information such as the total number of times people engaged with your content, the number of users who clicked on your content, the characteristics of a device or its user when it is available to receive an ad, the topics that people are creating content about in a particular location, or aggregated or device-level reports to advertisers about users who saw or clicked on their ads. This information does not include your name, email address, or phone number. We may, however, share non-personal, aggregated, or device-level information through partnerships with entities that may use data in their possession (including data you may have given them) to link your name, email address, or other personal information to the information we provide them. These partnerships require that they get your consent before doing so.
