Privacy

We receive a number of different types of information about you, such as:

Your information

Your information is the basic information that's required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share.

  • Registration information
  • When you sign up for Kaliido, you are required to provide your name, email address, and birthday.
  • Information you choose to share

Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Kaliido, such as when you post a status update, upload a photo, or comment on a friend's story. It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you add a friend, like a Page or a website, add a place to your story, find friends using our contact importers, or indicate you are in a relationship.

Your name, profile pictures, networks, username and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public.

Your birthday allows us to do things like show you age-appropriate content and advertisements.

 

Information others share about you

We receive information about you from your friends and others, such as when they upload your contact information, post a photo of you, tag you in a photo or status update, or at a location, or add you to a group.

When people use Kaliido, they may store and share information about you and others that they have, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.

 

Other information we receive about you

We also receive other types of information about you:

  • We receive data about you whenever you interact with Kaliido, such as when you look at another person's profile, send or receive a message, search for a friend or a Group, click on, view or otherwise interact with things, use a Kaliido mobile app, or purchase Kaliido Credits or make other purchases through Kaliido.
  • When you post things like photos or videos on Kaliido, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.
  • We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access Kaliido, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, the type (including identifiers) of browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are nearby.
  • We receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses Kaliido Platform or visit a site with a Kaliido feature (such as a social plugin), sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you're on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to Kaliido, your User ID.
  • Sometimes we get data from our partners, customers and other third parties that helps us (or them) deliver content, understand online activity, and generally make Kaliido better. For example, a content provider may tell us information about you (like how you responded to an ad on Kaliido or on another site) in order to measure the effectiveness of - and improve the quality of - ads.

We also put together data from the information we already have about you and your friends. For example, we may put together data about you to determine which friends we should show you in your News Feed or suggest you tag in the photos you post. We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you and your friends about people or events nearby, or offer deals to you that you might be interested in. We may also put together data about you to serve you ads that might be more relevant to you.

When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city). But we only keep it until it is no longer useful to provide you services, like keeping your last GPS coordinates to send you relevant notifications.

We only provide data to our partners or customers after we have removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it, or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it is not directly associated with you.

 

Public information

When we use the phrase "public information" (which we sometimes refer to as "Everyone information"), we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.

Information you choose to make public

Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of Kaliido, will be able to see it.

Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:

  • can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, profile, User ID, username, etc.) even off Kaliido;
  • can show up when someone does a search on Kaliido or on a public search engine;
  • will be accessible to the Kaliido-integrated applications, and websites you and your friends use; and
  • will be accessible to anyone who uses our APIs such as our Kaliido API.

Sometimes you will not be able to select an audience when you post something (like when you write on a Group's wall or comment on a news article that uses our comments plugin). This is because some types of stories are always public stories. As a general rule, you should assume that the information will be publicly available.

When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public.

Information that is always publicly available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.

  • Name
  • This helps your friends and family find you. If you are uncomfortable sharing your real name, you can always delete your account.
  • Profile Pictures
  • These help your friends recognize you. If you are uncomfortable making any of these photos public, you can always delete it. Unless you delete them, when you add a new profile picture, the previous photo will remain public in your profile picture or cover photo album.
  • Network
  • This helps you see whom you will be sharing information with before you choose "Friends and Networks" as a custom audience. If you are uncomfortable making your network public, you can leave the network. 
  • Gender
  • This allows us to refer to you properly.
  • Username and User ID
  • These allow you to give out a custom link to your profile or Page, and help make Kaliido Platform possible. 

 

Usernames and User IDs

A Username (or Kaliido URL) is a custom link to your profile that you can give out to people or post on external websites. Usernames appear in the URL on your profile. We also use your User ID to identify your Kaliido account.

If someone has your Username or User ID, they can use it to access information about you through the Kaliido.com website. For example, if someone has your Username, they can type Kaliido.com/profile/Username into their browser and see the information you've made public, as well as anything else you've let them see. Similarly, someone with your Username or User ID can access information about you through our APIs. Specifically, they can access your public information, along with your age range, language and country.

 

How we use the information we receive

We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends, our partners and the developers that build the applications, and websites you use. For example, we may use the information we receive about you:

  • as part of our efforts to keep Kaliido products, services and integrations safe and secure;
  • to protect Kaliido's or others' rights or property;
  • to provide you with location features and services, like telling you and your friends when something is going on nearby;
  • to make suggestions to you and other users on Kaliido, such as: suggesting that your friend use our contact importer because you found friends using it, suggesting that another user add you as a friend because the user imported the same email address as you did, or suggesting that your friend tag you in a picture they have uploaded with you in it; and
  • for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.

Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide Kaliido as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways.

While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share information we receive about you with others unless we have:

  • received your permission;
  • given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or
  • removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it.

Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared.

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.

Deleting your account

If you want to stop using your account, you can delete it.

When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from Kaliido. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. You can delete your account from your profile settings. 

Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on Kaliido aren't stored in your account, like posting to a group or sending someone a message (where your friend may still have a message you sent, even after you delete your account). That information remains after you delete your account.
