Last updated: 13 October 2021

This iOSGods privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use the website https://iosgods.com and the related services (collectively, the “Service”) and the choices you have associated with that data. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is properly protected. Any personal data provided by you through the Service will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

Changes. We may change this Privacy Policy as and when necessary. If we have your email address, we will send you a notification about the changes that we plan to implement. Please check this Privacy Policy periodically to ensure you are aware of our data processing practices. 

Access to the Privacy Policy. To make this privacy Policy easy to find, we make it available in our footer and at every point where personal data may be requested.

 

Information Collection And Use
We collect several different types of information from you for various purposes to provide our Service to you and improve it, as described below. 

Personal Data
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal data that can be used to contact or identify you:

  • Sign up. When you sign up, we collect your birth date, display name, email address, password, information about your device and operating system. If you choose to register by using your Google, Facebook, or Twitter accounts, we will have access to the personal data that Google, Facebook, or Twitter shares with us like your full name, email address, and image. We use the said information to verify your age, register and maintain your user account, enable you to use the Service, contact you, if necessary, and maintain our business records. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘performing a contract with you’ and ’pursuing our legitimate interests’ (i.e., operate, analyze, grow, and administer the Service). We will store this data until you delete your user account.
  • Payments. When you make a payment (e.g., for a subscription or a donation), our third-party payment processors Stripe and PayPal collect your personal data, such as name, billing and delivery addresses, and payment details (e.g., credit card or PayPal details). We do not have access to your full payment data; only a part of your personal data is made available to us by the payment processors. Your payment data is used to process payments and maintain our accountancy records. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘performing our contractual obligations’ and ‘pursuing our legitimate interests’ (i.e., to administer our business). We store such data for the time period prescribed by law.
  • Enquiries. When you contact us by email, we collect your first name, last name, email address, and any information that you decide to include in your message. When you contact us by using the contact form, we collect any information that you decide to include in your message. We use such data to respond to your enquiries and provide you with the requested information. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘pursuing our legitimate interests’ (i.e., to grow and promote the Website) and ‘your consent’ (for optional personal data). We will store this data until you stop communicating with us.

Usage Data
Additionally, whilst using the Service, we collect your usage and analytics data (the “Usage Data”). The Usage Data includes the following information:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address;
  • Geographical location;
  • Browser type and version;
  • Operating system;
  • Referral source;
  • Length of visit, page views, website navigation and any other related browsing activity. 

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, this Usage Data may include information such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

We use the Usage Data to analyze what kind of users access and use the Service, measure your engagement with the Service, see which products are interesting to you, improve our content, develop new products and services, and investigate and prevent security issues and abuse. In most cases, such analytics data is non-personal and it does not allow us to identify you as a natural person. However, some of such data like your IP address or device ID may be considered personal data and we will make sure that we have the necessary legal basis for processing such data. When we process your Usage Data that is personal data, we rely on the ‘legitimate interest’ (i.e., to analyze and improve the Service) and ‘your consent’ bases. 

Tracking & Cookie Data
We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and hold certain information. We use such information to analyze the technical aspects of your use of the Service, prevent fraud and abuse, and ensure the security of the Service.

Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Service.

In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place procedures to safeguard and secure the personal data we collect. The security measures taken by us include proper authentication, secured networks, strong passwords, limited access to your personal data by our staff, anonymization of personal data (when possible), and carefully selected data processors.

The security of your personal data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
