Data Protection Policies (or Data Policies, Privacy Policies) seem to be created by the people paid per word. They are long and full of legalese due to legal compliance requirements.
We did our best to make our Data Protection Policy short, easy to access, easy to understand, and in a clear and plain language, especially for our young users. However, we couldn’t avoid all legal terms, but we created a Glossary of Terms to help you to better understand the terms.
Even though, worldwide, there are various privacy legislations (So many countries, so many customs), we voluntarily choose to apply the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards to all our users regardless if they are a GDPR subject or they are users outside of the European Union jurisdiction. One application, one Data Protection Policy!
We want you to read our entire Data Protection Policy and all the other documents that govern the relationship between us and you, and we want you to do it before creating an account, in order to have a good understanding of what, how, and more important why we are doing things as we do.
However, if you are like us, you are eager to use the application not to read legal documents. That’s why we’ve started this policy with a short summary followed by our core beliefs, our principles, and by a detailed explanation of the Data Protection Policy.
This Data Protection Policy and a Glossary of Terms are accessible to you at any time on our website. Moreover, if you have questions about this policy and our privacy practices we want to hear from you. You always can contact us through the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org at any time, and we are happy to help.
