While we do not actively monitor the interactions between Users of the Platform and are under no obligation to do so, we may in certain cases collect information related to your interactions with other Users of the Platform, including, without limitation, comments you make, and other User Content that that you upload to, or post on, the Services that becomes publicly available to other Users.
Usage Information: We collect certain information about the usage of the Services through cookies and other tracking technologies, including: (i) times and dates and the extent of your usage of the Services; (ii) time zone, language, screen resolution, and other usage preferences you select when using the Services; (iii) device keyboard settings; (iv) the User Accounts and/or User Content you view, like, comment on, share, follow, message, add memes to, and otherwise interact with, as well as the foregoing that other Users do with respect to your Account and/or User Content; (v) usage history such as areas and pages within the Services that you access or use and/or which buttons in the Services you click on; (vi) search terms you type in on the Services; (vii) the URL or advertisement that may have referred you to the Services; (viii) the search terms you entered into a search engine or app store that may have led you to the Services; (viii) the mobile platform or service provider you use, and (ix) other device and Services access information such as your browser type, operating system, IP address, referring/exit pages, and other unique device identifiers, as well as your push notification token.
Information via Third Party Accounts: You have the option to use your Facebook, Instagram, Google, Apple or Twitter accounts, or your account with any other social media platform with which we partner for cross-platform account synchronization from time-to-time (each, an “SM Login Channel”) to set up a User Account, rather than signing up for an Account directly via the Services. Each SM Login Channel allows you to register for an Account and then login to the Services by synchronizing the information of your SM Login Channel user account profile and the information required by Fud when creating your Account. If you click on the button and log in to your SM Login Channel user account, your SM Login Channel user account and the Services are linked.
Behavioral Information: We may link your contact or subscriber information with your activity on the Services across all your devices using your email or social media log-in details, as well as engagement scores (“likes”, comments, repeated views), related Users based on your behavior on the Services, and opt-ins and communication preferences.

If you do not wish to share your precise location with us, you can switch off location services via the settings on your mobile device. You can also tag your location in connection with certain User Content that you create via the Services. If you do not want to share your location with others, do not tag your location in any User Content.
Metadata: When you upload User Content, you automatically upload certain metadata that is connected to the User Content. Metadata describes other data and provides information about your User Content that will not always be evident to the applicable viewer. In connection with your User Content, the metadata can describe how, when and by whom the piece of User Content was collected and how that User Content is formatted. It further includes certain Personal Information, such as your Account name, that enables other Users to trace back the User Content to your Account. Metadata may further consist of additional Personal Information that you chose to provide (e.g., any hashtags used to mark keywords to the User Content).
Customer Support: We collect information that you provide to us, including any Personal Information, when you contact us for customer-support purposes.
Payment Information: We may collect certain payment information, such as credit card or other financial account information, as well as billing address information if we are charging you fees to use the Services.

Transaction and Bank Information: If you are a Content Creator, who has linked their bank account information with Us, we collect bank account transaction details, purchase history and other related transaction details to process payments to you and to charge you fees.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLATFORM PERMISSIONS
Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. These platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the Fud App wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the Fud App seeks before you first use the App, and your use of the App constitutes your consent to the notified permissions.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Fud) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Sites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Sites. Third parties serve cookies through our Sites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
First and third-party cookies served through our Sites and the purposes they perform are described below:
Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Sites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Sites but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.
Analytics and customization cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Sites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Sites for you.
Advertising cookies: These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and they perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing and in some cases selecting and displaying advertisements to you across the internet that are based on your interests.
Social networking cookies: These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Sites through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.
What about other tracking technologies?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels'' or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Sites or opened an email that we have sent them. For example, we may use Google Analytics to track usage of our Sites. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Sites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Our mobile applications may include third-party application software development kits that provide mobile performance and analytics data, bug reporting features, and APIs to third parties that help provide the Sites, for social media functionality, and for marketing and advertising.
Does Fud serve targeted advertising?
As described above, third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device through the Sites to serve advertising. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.

Please bear in mind that there are many more networks listed on that site than those that we use on our Sites.
We use Google cookies for analytics and marketing purposes. You can opt-out of Google tracking through Google Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means. Google also provides a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in for the web.
What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
Fud does not generally respond to "do not track" signals.
