2. What kind of personal information does Qoiza collect?
From within our Site and Mobile App we collect personally identifiable information (information that is directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a user's name, e-mail address), as well as information about activities that are linked to that person.
Our definition of personally identifiable information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or user from which individual user identities have been removed. Aggregate data may include anonymous demographic information such as country of origin, citizenship, ZIP code, age, gender, preferences and survey information. In other words, how you use our Site and Mobile App may be collected and combined with information about how others use the Site and Mobile App, but no personally identifiable information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our user's needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Site and Mobile App.
The choice of how much personally identifiable information you disclose to us is completely at your discretion. Some areas of our Site and Mobile App are accessible without registration of any kind, and you can browse those areas. Other areas of our Site and Mobile App require Facebook registration in order for you to participate in the services offered. It is not mandatory for you to register and provide information to us, but please realize that in order for us to serve you better or provide particular features, you will need to provide certain information to access some areas of our Site and Mobile App. We collect information you grant us from Facebook when you register at and use our Site and Mobile App. Specific examples of the information we collect include the following:
Information. We use Facebook Login so you can use your existing Facebook.com
account to access the features of the Site and Mobile App. You must explicitly
authorize Facebook to share your information with us when you first login to
the Site or Mobile App with your Facebook credentials.
You should review your privacy settings on your Facebook account because those settings determine and govern what personally identifiable information may be made available to us when you access the Site and/or Mobile App. While Facebook Login allows us to access a variety of information about you based on your Facebook accountÕs privacy settings, we only access personally identifiable information which we feel is useful to enhance your experience of the Site and Mobile App, including your name, gender and location. We may also collect any information you enter on the Site and/or Mobile App or provided to us in any other way (such as through an email, survey, or letter).
B. Qoiza, Stories and Comments. Please note that information and content that you post on our Site and Mobile App by using our services including, but not limited to, brands, stories, comments, and photos as well as your screen ID and information in your Qoiza profile can be viewed by the general public, and also may be stored on our systems indefinitely. You should not post any personally identifiable information that you do not wish to make publicly available.
C. Submissions and Customer Service. From time-to-time we may post surveys, contests or sweepstakes on our site and Mobile App, which may request personally identifiable information, demographic information and/or customer feedback. Contests may require contact information or other demographic or personally identifiable information in order to determine eligibility. We may use information collected from surveys and contests to notify and contact winners of those contests. Participation in these requests is completely voluntary and with each request you will have the choice of whether or not to participate and disclose information. Also, we may collect information that identifies you personally when you send us comments, questions or suggestions.
Device Information. Qoiza may transmit and store the following device
information: Push Notification Device Tokens – when user grants
permission, location – when user grants permission, UDID, iOS operating
system version, country of device registration, crash report information
(timestamp, crash GPS radio state (on/off), cellular radio state, WiFi radio
state when application crashes), and user language preference.
We also may store email addresses that we obtain through user actions associated with the Qoiza Mobile App: Facebook registration, or feedback emails sent to Qoiza. This information is not passively collected from the device.
Qoiza also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users adding content, or leaving comments on Qoiza posts. Qoiza only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

We reserve the right to send such communications to our users without offering the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
á Facebook Connect. We allow Users to link their Facebook accounts to our Services. Users can then post recent activity on our Services back to their Facebook accounts.

Third parties may independently collect information about users when users choose to view links or ads displayed on Qoiza. Users should contact those third parties directly if they do not wish to receive communications from them, or do not want those third parties to collect information about them.
We are opposed to spam and our Terms of Service expressly prohibit users from uploading, posting, emailing, transmitting or otherwise making available junk mail, commercial advertisements, or other form of commercial solicitation on the QoizaÕs website or through QoizaÕs services. Any violation of our policies, by sending unsolicited email advertisements to or through QoizaÕs computer systems, will result in the sender being blocked from use of the Site and Mobile App and may subject the sender and his or her agents to civil and criminal penalties.
6. What security procedures does Qoiza use to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information collected by the company?
Qoiza uses industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected by the Qoiza website and Mobile App in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security. Further, while we make reasonable efforts to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
