a) Ads for Social Fork
We advertise Social Fork on publishers such as Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube. When you use Social Fork or view a Social Fork ad on one of those publishers, whether or not you click on it, Social Fork, publishers, and other service providers that perform advertising-related services for us may collect personal information. We may also send them personal data for help optimize and measure our ad campaigns. Publishers may use personal information to optimize the kinds of ads you see and may offer choices about the way they handle personal information. For example, to learn about how Google processes your personal information in relation to serving ads and what choices you may have, visit their site.
b) Ads on Social Fork
If you are subscribed to an ad-supported plan, the ads you see may be tailored for you based in part on the personal information we collect from your use of the Services (e.g. your year of birth), as well as information we receive from third parties. Under these plans, you cannot opt out of seeing ads or from having us measure your engagement with the ads, but you can opt out of certain ad targeting based on your activity outside of the Apps or Website. To opt out of that kind of ad targeting, see the Choices in section below.
You have the following choices when it comes to our use of your personal information:
a) Ad Targeting
Opt Out of Cross-App Advertising
Cross-app advertising is the collection or use of data collected across different apps to infer your interests and tailor advertising. To opt out of cross-app advertising on your device (including the App), select “Limit Ad Tracking” in your iOS settings or “Opt out of ad personalization” in your Android settings.

b) Ad Measurement
The App includes software that enables third parties to measure ad viewership and similar statistics. When you enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” or “Opt out of ad personalization” option on your device, user-level demographic measurement on the App will be disabled for certain vendors, this will not disable ad measurement for aggregate statistical purposes.

You can choose to receive or disable push notifications from us on your mobile app by adjusting your device settings. A shortcut to those options is available in the mobile Apps’ settings.
If you would like to request to access, correct, update, suppress, restrict, or delete personal information, object to or opt out of the processing of personal information, withdraw your consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, or if you would like to request to receive a copy of your personal information (to the extent these rights are provided to you by applicable law), you may contact us in accordance with the Contact Us section below. Please clearly describe your request. We will respond to your request consistent with applicable law.
In your request, please make clear what personal information you would like to have provided or changed, or whether you would like to have your personal information deleted. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and you will be required to verify your identity before we begin implementing your request. If you do not provide information sufficient to verify your identity, we may, in some circumstances, be unable to carry out your request.
We will work to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable or as required by applicable law. Please note that if you choose to delete personal information, we may need to retain certain information for purposes such as recordkeeping, security, fraud prevention, legal requirements, and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion.
We retain personal information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained and consistent with applicable law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:
In addition, we are not responsible for the information collection, use, disclosure, or security policies or practices of other organizations, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Amazon, Roku, or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider, or device manufacturer, including with respect to any personal information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the Services.
The Services are not directed to individuals under the age of seventeen (17) and we do not knowingly collect or sell personal information from children (as defined under applicable law) without involvement and approval of a legal guardian, unless consistent with applicable law.
Unless we request it, do not send or disclose to us any sensitive personal information (e.g., social security or social insurance numbers, copies of personal identification cards such as drivers’ licenses, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Services, through customer service, or otherwise.
The California Privacy Protection Act (“CCPA”) provides its residents with certain rights. If you are a California resident, the law permits you to request that we disclose to you the following information covering the past twelve months: the categories of personal information we collected about you and the categories of sources from which we collected such personal information; the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling (if applicable) personal information about you; the categories of personal information about you that we sold and the categories of third parties to whom we sold such personal information ; and the categories of personal information about you that we otherwise shared or disclosed and the categories of third parties with whom we shared or disclosed such personal information. Additionally, you may request that we delete personal information we have collected from you as defined under the California Privacy Protection Act (“CCPA”).
To make a request to use one of these rights, please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section above. To enable us to verify ownership of your account, you must use the email on your account to make the request. You may designate an authorized agent to make a data request to us on your behalf under the CCPA. In order for such an agent to make a request, they must provide proof of their power of attorney and valid government identification of both the requester and the agent. In some instances, we may decline to honor your request where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of personal information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another California resident. Consistent with California law, we will not charge you different prices or provide a different quality of service if you use your rights unless it relates to the value of the information.
We may share information with our vendors in ways that constitute a “sale” of personal information as defined by the CCPA. Specifically, Advanced Ad Personalization enables us to personalize ads based on more of your activity (including outside of Social Fork) and permits our advertising vendors to use personal data to improve their services. You can opt out of this activity by visiting following the instructions in the Choices section above. We do not “sell” the personal data of a user when we have actual knowledge that they are under the age of 16.
