1.1

Basic Account Information

You don’t have to create an account to use some of our service features, such as searching and viewing public Bokaroo profiles. If you do choose to create an account, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On Bokaroo this includes a display name (for example, “Bokaroo”),  a password, and an email address or phone number. Your display name and contact information are always public to make transactions possible.

Public Information

Most activity on Bokaroo is public, including your profile information, your time zone and language, when you created your account, and your Posts and certain information about your posts like the date, time, and picture of Product you posted. You also may choose to publish your location in your posts or your Bokaroo profile. The lists you create, people you follow and who follow you, and posts you Like or Repost are also public.

You are responsible for your posts and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information. If you update your public information on Bokaroo, such as by deleting a post or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on Bokaroo.com.

In addition to providing your public information to the world directly on Bokaroo, we also use technology like application programming interfaces (APIs) and embeds to make that information available to websites, apps, and others for their use - for example, displaying posts on a news website or analyzing what people say on Bokaroo. We generally make this content available in limited quantities for free and charge licensing fees for large-scale access. We have standard terms that govern how this data can be used, and a compliance program to enforce these terms. But these individuals and companies are not affiliated with Bokaroo, and their offerings may not reflect updates you make on Bokaroo. For more information about how we make public data on Bokaroo available to the world, visit https://Bokaroo.com.

Contact Information and Address Books

We use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. We also use contact information to personalize our services, enable certain account features (for example, for login verification or Bokaroo via SMS), and to send you information about our services. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages from Bokaroo to that number as your country’s laws allow. Bokaroo also uses your contact information to market to you as your country’s laws allow, and to help others find your account if your settings permit, including through third-party services and client applications. You can use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from Bokaroo. You can also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or here.

If you email us, we will keep the content of your message, your email address, and your contact information to respond to your request.

Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications

We provide certain features that let you communicate more privately or control who sees your content. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have non-public conversations on Bokaroo, protect your posts, or host private broadcasts on Periscope. When you communicate with others by sending or receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications and information related to them. This includes link scanning for malicious content, link shortening to http://t.co URLs, detection of spam and prohibited images, and review of reported issues. We also use information about whom you have communicated with and when (but not the content of those communications) to better understand the use of our services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform, and to show more relevant content. We share the content of your Direct Messages with the people you’ve sent them to; we do not use them to serve you ads. Note that if you interact in a way that would ordinarily be public with Bokaroo content shared with you via Direct Message, for instance by liking a post, those interactions will be public. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate, remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on Bokaroo - even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account - which they may duplicate, store, or re-share.
