1. Collection and Use of Personal Data

Personal data is any information relating to a natural person that can be used directly or indirectly to identify the person ("Personal Data," "Personal data," or "personal data").

You may be asked to provide your personal data anytime you request services or information from us, register with us, participate in public forums or other activities on our site and applications, respond to customer surveys, or otherwise interact with us. Please keep in mind that when you provide information to us on a third-party site or platform, the information you provide may be separately collected by the third-party site or platform. The information we collect is covered by this privacy policy and the information the third-party site or platform collects is subject to the third-party site or platform's privacy practices. Privacy choices you have made on the third-party site or platform will not apply to our use of the information we have collected directly through our applications.

In addition, if we intend to collect personal data from children, we take additional steps to protect children's privacy, including:

  • In accordance with applicable law, obtaining consent from parents for the collection of personal data from their children, or for sending information about our products and services directly to their children.
  • Limiting our collection of personal data from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in the use of our Services.

Upon restriction, Jawger will continue to store your data and will not further process your personal data without your consent.
