Your Privacy is ImportantWhatevo, LLC, ("Whatevo") takes data privacy seriously As a network that does not serve advertisements and that does not sell information about its users or use of the Site (defined below) to third parties, Whatevo has also taken unique steps that help you control how much information about you is shared when you use the Site.
Please read this document in its entirety and take it seriously. It explains Whatevo's privacy practices, and what information we collect when you use our web site located at whatevo.com and related mobile apps (collectively, the "Site"); and also how you can opt-out of sharing some of this information.
Information Whatevo CollectsWhen you visit The Site, we may collect and store general, non-identifiable information about what pages you access, your general geographic location (e.g., a city, but not a street address), the device you are using, an anonymized version of your IP address, and the address of web sites that refer you to the Site. We also store your name, email address, and website URL if you provide this information when posting comments.
We may use this information to protect Whatevo and its users from spam, viruses, identity theft, illegal or harmful activities, as well as to understand how people use the Site, which features work and which don't, and to help us develop and improve the Site's features and services. For example, if we create a feature that everybody is using, we want to know about that, so we collect data about how much different features are used.
We also collect any information you provide us if you choose to contact us directly or post on our web site or on your page, including any personally identifiable information. We use this information for the purpose you provided it – for instance, to provide support or answer questions – and to provide you the Site.
Whatevo uses an anonymized version of Google Analytics to gather and aggregate general information about user behavior. Google may use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the site, compiling reports on site activity for us and providing other services relating to site activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. To the best of our knowledge, the information gathered by Google on Whatevo's behalf is collected in such a way that neither Whatevo, nor Google, can easily trace saved information back to any individual user.
Whatevo is unique in that we offer our users the option to opt-out of Google Analytics on the user settings page. We also respect "Do Not Track” browser settings. On your Whatevo settings page, you can choose to turn Google Analytics off completely when you visit the Site. If you choose either of these options, we make best efforts not to send any data about your user behavior, anonymized or otherwise, to Google or any other third party service provider. Please be aware that there may be other services that you are using and that are not controlled by Whatevo (including Google, Google Chrome Web Browser, Android Operating System, and YouTube) that may continue to send information to Google when you use the Site, even if you have asked us not to send information through our services.
Email CommunicationsFrom time to time we may email you information about Whatevo that we think is necessary and important, or if you subscribe to our real-time newsletter or post comments.
If anyone ever contacts you and asks for your Whatevo password, they are probably trying to scam you. Whatevo will never do this. Please don't give your Whatevo password to anyone, and let us know about it so we can hunt them down and execute suitable punishment.
