Privacy Policy

Last modified: January 1, 2020

Your privacy is very important to Fozeus. We have developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, transfer, disclose and store your information. Take a few minutes to read our privacy practices and if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact us using an email or contact form.

Collection of Personal Information

We collect information you give us. We may collect personal identification information in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when you visit our site, register on the site, and in connection with other services, activities, resources or features we make available on our Site.

When you create or reconfigure a Fozeus account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, location, date of birth, picture and PayPal account. Some of this information, for example, your name, username, location and picture, is listed publicly on our Services, including your profile page and search results.

In your profile you may provide us with information to make public, such as a short biography, story, review, offer, your website, pictures and videos. You may use your account settings to change your personal information. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request.

Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the publications you post and the metadata provided with publications, such as when you posted, but also the publications you create, the people you follow, the publications you mark as favorites and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from Fozeus. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

Collection of Non-personal Information

We may collect non-personal identification information about you whenever you interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about your means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web browser cookies

Fozeus may use "cookies" to enhance your experience. Your web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

Use of Collected Information

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

How we protect your information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password and data stored on our Site.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to share your Fozeus profile, publication, photo or video.

We may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address security, fraud or technical issues; or to protect Fozeus rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

In the event that Fozeus is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your public user profile information, public publications, photos and videos, the people you follow or that follow you, or the number of users who clicked on a particular link.

Third party websites

You may find advertising or other content on Fozeus that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.

Mobile Privacy

We may offer you the ability for you to connect with our sites, or use our applications, services, and tools using a mobile device, either through a mobile application or via a mobile optimized website. The provisions of this Privacy Policy apply to all such mobile access and use of mobile devices. This Privacy Policy will be referenced by all such mobile applications or mobile optimized websites.

Changes to this privacy policy

Fozeus reserves the right to update this privacy policy at anytime. Updates to our privacy policy will be posted prominently on the website.

To modify or delete any or all of the personal information you have provided to us, please sign in and update your profile.

Your acceptance of these terms

By using Fozeus, you signify your acceptance of this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.

People under 13 are not permitted to use Fozeus on their own, and so this privacy policy makes no provision for their use of the site.
