Privacy Statement

Updated December 9, 2014

1. Introduction

Questions. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy please contact us.

This privacy policy covers the website http://www.wabiazo.com/ and does not cover other information, such as information that may be collected through software downloaded from Shegman Communications


This privacy policy covers all of Wabiazo.com. It does not, however, apply to entities that Wabiazo or Shegman Communications does not own or control, such as applications and websites using Platform. By using or accessing Wabiazo.com, you agree to our privacy practices outlined as follows:

No information from children under age 13. If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register for Wabiazo or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 13, please contact us through this contact page.

Parental participation. We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe internet use practices.

2. Information We Receive

Information you provide to us:

Information About Yourself. When you sign up on Wabiazo.com you provide us with your name, email, gender, location and birth date. During the registration process we give you the opportunity to connect with your friends, schools, and employers. You will also be able to add a picture of yourself. In some cases we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide specific services to you. Once you register you can provide other information about yourself by connecting with, for example, family, relationships, networks, activities, interests, and places. You can also provide personal information about yourself, such as your marital status, work and educational background
Content. One of the primary reasons people use Wabiazo.com is to share content with others. Examples include when you update your status, upload or take a photo, upload or record a video, share a link, create an event or a group, make a comment, write something on someone’s Wall, write a note, or send someone a message. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on Wabiazo (such as photos), please remove the metadata before uploading the content.

Transactional Information. We may retain the details of transactions or payments you make on Wabiazo.com

Friend Information. We offer contact importer tools to help you upload your friends’ addresses so that you can find your friends on Wabiazo, and invite your contacts who do not have Wabiazo.com accounts to join. If you give us your password to retrieve those contacts, we will not store your password after you have uploaded your contacts’ information.

Information we collect when you interact with Wabiazo admin:

Site activity information. We keep track of some of the actions you take on Wabiazo.com, such as adding connections (including joining a group or adding a friend), creating a photo album, indicating you “like” a post, attending an event, or connecting with an application. In some cases you are also taking an action when you provide information or content to us. For example, if you share a video, in addition to storing the actual content you uploaded, we might log the fact that you shared it.

Access Device and Browser Information. When you access Wabiazo from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.

Cookie Information. We use "cookies" (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make Wabiazo.com easier to use, to make our advertising better, and to protect both you and Wabiazo. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to Wabiazo.com. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into Wabiazo, and to know when you are interacting with other users, Platform applications and websites, our widgets and Share buttons, and our advertisements. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use Wabiazo.com effectively.

Information we receive from third parties:

Wabiazo Platform. We do not own or operate the applications or websites that you use through Wabiazo.com Platform (such as games and utilities). Whenever you connect with a Platform application or website, we will receive information from them, including information about actions you take. In some cases, in order to personalize the process of connecting, we may receive a limited amount of information even before you connect with the application or website.

Information from other websites. We may institute programs with advertising partners and other websites in which they share information with us:

• We may ask advertisers to tell us how our users responded to the ads we showed them (and for comparison purposes, how other users who didn’t see the ads acted on their site). This data sharing, commonly known as “conversion tracking,” helps us measure our advertising effectiveness and improve the quality/relevance of the advertisements you see.
• We may receive information about whether or not you’ve seen or interacted with certain ads on other sites in order to measure the effectiveness of those ads.
If in any of these cases we receive data that we do not already have, we will “anonymize” it within 180 days, meaning we will stop associating the information with any particular user and only use the information on an aggregate basis. If we institute these programs, we will only use the information in the ways we explain in the “How We Use Information” section below.

Information from other users. We may collect information about you from other Wabiazo users, such as when a friend tags you in a photo, video, or place, provides friend details, or indicates a relationship with you.

3. Sharing information on Wabiazo.com

This section explains how your privacy settings work, and how your information is shared on Wabiazo. You should always consider your privacy settings before sharing information on Wabiazo.com.

Name and Profile Picture. Wabiazo.com is designed to make it easy for you to find and connect with others. For this reason, your name and profile picture do not have privacy settings. If you are uncomfortable with sharing your profile picture, you should delete it (or not add one). You can also control who can find you when searching on Wabiazo or on public search engines using the Applications and Websites privacy setting.
Contact Information. Your contact information settings control (available when customizing your privacy settings) who can contact you on Wabiazo, and who can see your contact information such as your email and phone number(s). Remember that none of this information is required except for your email address, and you do not have to share your email address with anyone.
Personal Information. Your personal information settings control who can see your personal information, such as your religious and political views, if you choose to add them. We recommend that you share this information using the friends of friends setting.

Posts by Me. You can select a privacy setting for every post you make using the publisher on our site. Whether you are uploading a photo or posting a status update, you can control exactly who can see it at the time you create it. Whenever you share something look for the lock icon. Clicking on the lock will bring up a menu that lets you choose who will be able to see your post. If you decide not to select your setting at the time you post the content, your content will be shared consistent with your Posts by Me default privacy


Gender and Birth Date. In addition to name and email address, we require you to provide your gender and birth date during the registration process. We ask for your date of birth to verify that you are 13 or older, and so that we can better limit your access to content and advertisements that are not age appropriate. Because your date of birth and gender are required, you cannot delete them. You can, however, edit your profile to hide all (or part) of such fields from other users.

Other. Here are some other things to remember:
• Some of the content you share and the actions you take will show up on your friends’ home pages and other pages they visit.
• If another user tags you in a photo or video or at a place, you can remove the tag. You can also limit who can see that you have been tagged on your profile from your privacy settings.
• Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users.
• You understand that information might be reshared or copied by other users.
• Certain types of communications that you send to other users cannot be removed, such as messages.
• When you post information on another user’s profile or comment on another user’s post, that information will be subject to the other user’s privacy settings.
• If you use an external source to publish information to Wabiazo (such as a mobile application or a Connect site), you should check the privacy setting for that post, as it is set by that external source.
“Everyone” Information. Information set to “everyone” is publicly available information, just like your name, profile picture, and connections. Such information may, for example, be accessed by everyone on the Internet (including people not logged into Wabiazo.com), be indexed by third party search engines, and be imported, exported, distributed, and redistributed by us and others without privacy limitations. Such information may also be associated with you, including your name and profile picture, even outside of Wabiazo, such as on public search engines and when you visit other sites on the internet. The default privacy setting for certain types of information you post on Wabiazo is set to “everyone.” You can review and change the default settings in your privacy settings. If you delete “everyone” content that you posted on Wabiazo, we will remove it from your Wabiazo.com profile, but have no control over its use outside of Wabiazo.

Minors. We reserve the right to add special protections for minors (such as to provide them with an age-appropriate experience) and place restrictions on the ability of adults to share and connect with minors, recognizing this may provide minors a more limited experience on Wabiazo.com


4. Information You Share With Third Parties.


Connecting with an Application or Website. When you connect with an application or website it will have access to General Information about you. The term General Information includes your and your friends’ names, profile pictures, gender, user IDs, connections, and any content shared using the Everyone privacy setting. We may also make information about the location of your computer or access device and your age available to applications and websites in order to help them implement appropriate security measures and control the distribution of age-appropriate content. If the application or website wants to access any other data, it will have to ask for your permission.

We give you tools to control how your information is shared with applications and websites that use Platform. For example, you can block all platform applications and websites completely or block specific applications from accessing your information by visiting your Applications and Websites privacy setting or the specific application’s “About” page. You can also use your privacy settings to limit which of your information is available to “everyone”.

You should always review the policies of third party applications and websites to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use information you share with them. We do not guarantee that they will follow our rules. If you find an application or website that violates our rules, you should report the violation to us and we will take action as necessary.

When your friends use Platform. If your friend connects with an application or website, it will be able to access your name, profile picture, gender, user ID, and information you have shared with “everyone.” It will also be able to access your connections, except it will not be able to access your friend list. If you have already connected with (or have a separate account with) that website or application, it may also be able to connect you with your friend on that application or website. If the application or website wants to access any of your other content or information (including your friend list), it will have to obtain specific permission from your friend. If your friend grants specific permission to the application or website, it will generally only be able to access content and information about you that your friend can access. In addition, it will only be allowed to use that content and information in connection with that friend. For example, if a friend gives an application access to a photo you only shared with your friends, that application could allow your friend to view or print the photo, but it cannot show that photo to anyone else.

We provide you with a number of tools to control how your information is shared when your friend connects with an application or website. For example, you can use your Application and Websites privacy setting to limit some of the information your friends can make available to applications and websites. You can block all platform applications and websites completely or block particular applications or websites from accessing your information. You can use your privacy settings to limit which friends can access your information, or limit which of your information is available to “everyone.” You can also disconnect from a friend if you are uncomfortable with how they are using your information.
