What We Collect
How We Use Your Information
Controlling Your Personal Information Be advised that if you send messages or post material containing personal information, that information may be collected and used by others. You can terminate your account at any time which will remove your profile and other personal information from view. HelloSection8, however, may (but is not obligated to) keep information about you that is on its system following your termination. Please contact HelloSection8 to terminate your account or for any other questions about your personal information.
Others’ Information You may decide to provide us with another person’s phone number so that person may be invited to join HelloSection8 or so that we may facilitate your communication with other people through the Service (such as when you upload an address book). You may also provide us with another person’s contact information for purposes of delivering information through SNS Apps or Mobile Apps. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person that he or she has been invited to join HelloSection8 or received content through an SNS App or Mobile App. All invitees are provided with the option not to receive further invitations from HelloSection8. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
Use of Information HelloSection8 may contain links to other web sites, and content in HelloSection8 site, Mobile Apps and SNS Apps may be hosted by other web sites. In addition, as described above, most content offered through HelloSection8 or SNS Apps is served or hosted by other sites. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of personal information. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.
Third-Party Advertising Companies We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our site and on certain HelloSection8 Apps, Mobile Apps and SNS Apps. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from Activity Information, HelloSection8’ cookies, your visits to our site, the HelloSection8 App that you view and the SNS Apps and Mobile Apps you use to target advertising within our HelloSection8 site, Mobile Apps or SNS Apps. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on our site and other sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your device. Similarly, third-party advertising companies may provide us with pixel tags (also called “clear gifs” or “beacons”) to help manage and optimize our online advertising. Beacons enable us to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the site on which the beacon is located, and to learn which banner ads bring users to a given site. HelloSection8 does not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks HelloSection8 to show an advertisement to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have viewed certain categories of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the third-party advertising company may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach.
Security HelloSection8 takes appropriate precautions to protect our users’ information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of HelloSection8 Web Site, please contact us at.
