What legal basis do we have for processing your personal data?

Weenbo takes data protection and people's privacy very seriously and we are committed to continuing to comply with data protection laws. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) creates consistent data protection rules across the EU. The GDPR became effective as of 25 May 2018 and applies to companies based in the EU, as well as to companies around the world who provide or offer goods or services, and who process data from or about people in the EU. While many of the principles of the GDPR build on current data protection rules in the EU, the GDPR has a wider scope, more prescriptive standards and substantial fines for compliance violations. For example, it requires companies to obtain a higher standard of consent from customers, where relevant, and broadens individuals' rights with respect to accessing and porting their data. At Weenbo, preparations are well underway to ensure that our products and services comply with the GDPR. Weenbo will comply with the GDPR. Our team has been working to review and expand our tools to help people manage their privacy and understand their choices with respect to their personal data.

When do we share personal data?

For example, when you post on Facebook, you select the audience for the post, such as a group, all of your friends, the public, or a customized list of people. Similarly, when you use Weenbo Messenger to communicate with people or businesses, those people and businesses can see the content you send.

How do we store, secure and process personal data?

We ensure the confidentiality of personal data and apply all necessary organizational and technical measures to protect personal data. In certain cases, Weenbo engages its partners in personal data processing, and transfers this data to them. In these cases, we make sure that adequate security measures are taken. It means that we do not transfer any data to partners whose data storage principles seem doubtful to us, or if we know that these principles substantially differ from those provided for in this document. Personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America, but in certain cases may be transferred to states outside the United States and processed there. Transfer of data beyond the borders of United States of America may only occur on legal grounds, and subject to ensuring an adequate data protection level. If you transfer data outside the European Economic Area, outline the measures you will put in place to provide an appropriate level of data privacy protection. Eg contractual clauses, data transfer agreements, etc.

How long do we keep your personal data for?

We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port and erase your data. We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and Weenbo Products, or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs. For example, when you search for something on Weenbo, you can access and delete that query from within your search history at any time, but the log of that search is deleted after 6 months. If you submit a copy of your government-issued ID for account verification purposes, we delete that copy 30 days after submission. When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates, and you won't be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn't part of your account and won't be deleted. If you don't want to delete your account but want to temporarily stop using the Products, you can deactivate your account instead.

Your rights in relation to personal data

You own all of the content and information you post on Weenbo, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition: 1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Weenbo (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it. 2. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others). 3. When you use an application, the application may ask for your permission to access your content and information as well as content and information that others have shared with you. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies help us provide, protect and improve the Weenbo Products, such as by personalizing content, tailoring and measuring ads, and providing a safer experience. While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Weenbo Products, we use them for the following purposes:

Authentication

We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you’re logged in so we can make it easier for you to access the Weenbo Products and show you the appropriate experience and features. For example: We use cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate between Weenbo pages. Cookies also help us remember your browser so you do not have to keep logging into Weenbo and so you can more easily log into Weenbo via third-party apps and websites.

Security, site and product integrity

We use cookies to help us keep your account, data and the Weenbo Products safe and secure. For example: Cookies can help us identify and impose additional security measures when someone may be attempting to access a Weenbo account without authorization, for instance, by rapidly guessing different passwords. We also use cookies to store information that allows us to recover your account in the event you’ve forgotten your password or to require additional authentication if you tell us your account has been hacked. We also use cookies to combat activity that violates our policies or otherwise degrades our ability to provide the Weenbo Products. For example: Cookies help us fight spam and phishing attacks by enabling us to identify computers that are used to create large numbers of fake Weenbo accounts. We also use cookies to detect computers infected with malware and to take steps to prevent them from causing further harm. Cookies also help us prevent underage people from registering for Weenbo accounts.

Advertising, recommendations, insights and measurement

We use cookies to help us show ads and to make recommendations for businesses and other organizations to people who may be interested in the products, services or causes they promote. For example: Cookies allow us to help deliver ads to people who have previously visited a business’s website, purchased its products or used its apps and to recommend products and services based on that activity. Cookies also allow us to limit the number of times that you see an ad so you don’t see the same ad over and over again. We also use cookies to help measure the performance of ad campaigns for businesses that use the Weenbo Products. For example: We use cookies to count the number of times an ad is shown and to calculate the cost of those ads. We also use cookies to measure how often people do things like click on or view ads. Cookies help us serve and measure ads across different browsers and devices used by the same person. For example: We can use cookies to prevent you from seeing the same ad over and over again across the different devices that you use. Cookies also allow us to provide insights about the people who use the Weenbo Products, as well as, the people who interact with the ads, websites, and apps of our advertisers and the businesses that use the Weenbo Products. For example: We use cookies to help businesses understand the kinds of people who like their Weenbo page or use their apps so they can provide more relevant content and develop features that are likely to be interesting to their customers. We also use cookies to help you opt out of seeing ads from Weenbo based on your activity on third-party websites.

Site features and services

We use cookies to enable the functionality that helps us provide the Weenbo Products. For example: Cookies help us store preferences, know when you’ve seen or interacted with Weenbo Products’ content, and provide you with customized content and experiences. For instance, cookies allow us to make suggestions to you and others, and to customize content on third-party sites that integrate our social plugins. If you are a page administrator, cookies allow you to switch between posting from your personal WB account and the page. We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your locale. For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so you will see the site in your preferred language.

Analytics and research

We use cookies to better understand how people use the Weenbo Products so that we can improve them.
