GoddessTalk Network may collect the following categories of personal information from the sources identified below:
We use the categories of personal information listed above for the following purposes:
We will engage in these activities to manage our contractual relationship with you; to comply with a legal obligation; where we have a legitimate interest in doing so; to protect the vital interests of you, other users’, or GoddessTalk Network staff; or with your consent.
We may collect and use information that is not reasonably linked to an individual, device, or household for any purpose. This includes aggregated or de-identified personal information.
We may share your personal information as follows:
We use organizational, technical, physical, and administrative data security measures intended to protect personal information within our organization. Note that if you allow others to access your account, they may be able to view information about or stored within your account, including what content you’ve viewed. Please see our vulnerability disclosure program for details on reporting potential security issues.
We advertise GoddessTalk Network on publishers such as Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube. When you use GoddessTalk Network or view a GoddessTalk Network ad on one of those publishers, whether or not you click on it, GoddessTalk Network, 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 here.
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.
You have the following choices when it comes to our use of your personal information:
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 (e.g,. Nielsen). This will not disable ad measurement for aggregate statistical purposes. Details and instructions on how to find these settings on commonly used mobile devices can be found here. You can also disable this measurement by disabling the Nielsen Measurement setting in the settings of the mobile Apps (Settings > Legal & Privacy > Advertising Privacy > Nielsen Measurement).
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 record keeping, 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.
Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. By using the Services, you understand that your information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
Some non-EEA countries are recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA or UK standards (the full list of these countries is available here). For transfers from the EEA or the UK to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, we have put in place adequate measures, such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission to protect your personal information. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
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.

Additional Information for EEA and UK Residents
Our legal bases for processing your personal information are that processing your data is:
On matters relating to the processing of personal data, EEA and UK residents may:
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.
On the advertising-supported version of GoddessTalk Network, 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 GoddessTalk Network) and permits our advertising vendors to use personal data to improve their services. We do not “sell” the personal data of a user when we have actual knowledge that they are under the age of 16.
