1 Information You Share With Us

  1. Basic Account Information

After you signing in using your phone number, Gmail or Facebook account you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On Snapkyu this includes a display name (for example, “Snapkyu123”) and an email address or phone number. Your display name always public, but you can use either your real name or a nick name. You can also create and manage multiple Snapkyu accounts, for example to express different parts of your identity. 

  1. Public Information

Most activity on Snapkyu is public, including your profile information, your time zone and language, when you signing using phone number, Gmail or Facebook account, and your Posts and certain information about your Posts like the date, time, and application and version of Snapkyu you Posted from. You also may choose to publish your location in your Posts or your Snapkyu profile. The lists you create, people you follow, accepted friends and who follow you, and Posts you Like or Direct Messages are also public.


If you Like, Direct Messages, reply, or otherwise publicly engage with an ad on our services, that advertiser might thereby learn information about you associated with the ad with which you engaged such as characteristics of the audience the ad was intended to reach.


Broadcasts you create, click on, or otherwise engage with on Snapkyu, are public along with when you took those actions. So are your hearts, comments, the number of hearts you’ve received, which accounts you are a Superfan of, and whether you watched a broadcast live or on replay. Any hearts, comments, or other content you contribute to another account’s broadcast will remain part of that broadcast for as long as it remains on Snapkyu.

Information posted about you by other people who use our services may also be public. For example, other people may tag you in a photo (you can remove tag on the post you’re tagged in) or mention you in a Post. 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 Snapkyu, such as by deleting a Post or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on, Snapkyu for iOS, and Snapkyu for Android.


By publicly posting content when you Post, you are directing us to disclose that information as broadly as possible, including through our APIs, and directing those accessing the information through our APIs to do the same. To facilitate the fast global dissemination of Posts to people around the world, we use technology like application programming interfaces (APIs) and embeds to make that information available websites, apps, and others for their use - for example, displaying Posts on a news website or analyzing what people say on Snapkyu. 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 Snapkyu, and their offerings may not reflect updates you make on Snapkyu


1.3      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 enable certain account features (for example, for login verification or Snapkyu via SMS), and to send you information about our services, and to personalize our services, including ads.

If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages from Snapkyu to that number as your country’s laws allow. Snapkyu 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 Snapkyu. You can also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification option.


You can choose to upload and sync your address book on Snapkyu so that we can help you find and connect with people you know and help others find and connect with you. We also use this information to better recommend content to you and others. 


  1. 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 nonpublic conversations on Snapkyu, protect your Posts. 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://x. co URLs, detection of spam, abuse and prohibited images, and use 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 Snapkyu 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 Snapkyu - even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account - which they may duplicate, store, or reshare.


  1. Payment Information

You may provide us with payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address, in order to purchase advertising or other offerings provided as part of our services.

2 Additional Information We Receive About You

2.1      Location Information

We require information about your signup and current location, which we get from signals such as your IP address or device settings, to securely and reliably set up and maintain your account and to provide our services to you. Subject to your settings, we may collect, use, and store additional information about your location - such as your current precise position or places where you’ve previously used Snapkyu – to operate or personalize our services including with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.

2.2      Links

In order to operate our services, we keep track of how you interact with links across our services. This includes links in emails we send you and links in Posts that appear on other websites or mobile applications. If you click on an external link or ad on our services, that advertiser or website operator might figure out that you came from Snapkyu along with other information associated with the ad you clicked such as characteristics of the audience it was intended to reach. They may also collect other personal data from you, such as cookie identifiers or your IP address.

2.3      Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on your computer or mobile device. Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to operate our services. Cookies are not required for many parts of our services such as searching and looking at public profiles. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, many browsers’ settings can be set to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on your computer. However, some of our services may not function properly if you disable cookies. When your browser or device allows it, we use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our services, to monitor aggregate usage patterns, and to personalize and otherwise operate our services such as by providing account security, personalizing the content we show you including ads, and remembering your language preferences.

We do not support the Do Not Track browser option.


2.4      Log Data

We receive information when you view content on or otherwise interact with our services, which we refer to as “Log Data,” even if you have not created an account. For example, when you visit our websites, sign into our services, interact with our email notifications, use your account to authenticate to a third-party service, or visit a third-party service that includes Snapkyu content, we may receive information about you. This Log Data includes information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms (including those not submitted as queries), and cookie information. We also receive Log Data when you click on, view, or interact with links on our services, including when you install another application through Snapkyu. We use Log Data to operate our services and ensure their secure, reliable, and robust performance. For example, we use Log Data to protect the security of accounts and to determine what content is popular on our services. We also use this data to improve the content we show you, including ads and to improve the effectiveness of our own marketing.


We use information you provide to us and data we receive, including Log Data and data from third parties, to make inferences like what topics you may be interested in, how old you are, and what languages you speak. This helps us better promote and design our services for you and personalize the content we show you, including ads.

2.5      Snapkyu for Web Data

When you view our content on third-party websites that integrate Snapkyu content such as embedded timelines or Post buttons, we may receive Log Data that includes the web page you visited. We use this information to better understand the use of our services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform, and to show more relevant content, including ads. We do not associate this web browsing history with your name, email address, phone number, or username, and we delete, obfuscate, or aggregate it after no longer than 30 days. We do not collect this data from browsers that we believe to be located in the European Union or EFTA States.

2.6      Advertisers and Other Ad Partners

Advertising revenue allows us to support and improve our services. We use the information described in this Privacy Policy to help make our advertising more relevant to you, to measure its effectiveness, and to help recognize your devices to serve you ads on and off of Snapkyu. Our ad partners and affiliates share information with us such as browser cookie IDs, mobile device IDs, hashed email addresses, demographic or interest data, and content viewed or actions taken on a website or app. Some of our ad partners, particularly our advertisers, also enable us to collect similar information directly from their website or app by integrating our advertising technology. Information shared by ad partners and affiliates or collected by Snapkyu from the websites and apps of ad partners and affiliates may be combined with the other information you share with Snapkyu and that Snapkyu receives about you described elsewhere in our Privacy Policy.


Snapkyu adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Principles for

Online Behavioral Advertising (also referred to as “interest-based advertising”) and respects the DAA’s consumer choice tool for you to opt out of interest-based advertising at In addition, our ads policies prohibit advertisers from targeting ads based on categories that we consider sensitive or are prohibited by law, such as race, religion, politics, sex life, or health. 


If you are an advertiser or a prospective advertiser, we process your personal data to help offer and provide our advertising services. You can update your data in your Snapkyu Ads dashboard or by contacting us directly as described in this Privacy Policy.

2.7      Developers

If you access our APIs or developer portal, we process your personal data to help provide our services. You can update your data by contacting us directly as described in this Privacy Policy.

2.8      Other Third Parties and Affiliates

We may receive information about you from third parties who are not our ad partners, such as others on Snapkyu, partners who help us evaluate the safety and quality of content on our platform, and other services you link to your Snapkyu account. You may choose to connect your Snapkyu account to accounts on another service, and that other service may send us information about your account on that service. We use the information we receive to provide you features like cross posting or cross-service authentication, and to operate our services. For integrations that Snapkyu formally supports, you may revoke this permission at any time from your application or phone settings; for other integrations, please visit the other service you have connected to Snapkyu.

2.9      Personalizing Based On Your Inferred Identity

When you log into Snapkyu on a browser or device, we will associate that browser or device with your account for purposes such as authentication, security, and personalization. Subject to your settings, we may also associate your account with browsers or devices other than those you use to log into Snapkyu (or associate your logged-out device or browser with other browsers or devices). When you provide other information to Snapkyu, including an email address, we associate that information with your Snapkyu account. Subject to your settings, we may also use this information in order to infer other information about your identity, for example by associating your account with hashes of email addresses that share common components with the email address you have provided to Snapkyu. We do this to operate and personalize our services. For example, if you visit websites with sports content on your laptop, we may show you sports-related ads on Snapkyu for Android and, if the email address associated with your account shares components with another email address, such as shared first name, last name, or initials, we may later match advertisements to you from advertisers that were trying to reach email addresses containing those components.

2.10    How You Control Additional Information We Receive

Your Snapkyu Personalization and data settings let you decide: 

• Whether we show you interest-based ads on and off Snapkyu 

• How we personalize based on your inferred identity

• Whether we collect and use your precise location 

• Whether we personalize your experience based on where you’ve been 

• Whether we keep track of the websites where you see Snapkyu content 

You can use Your Snapkyu data to review: 

• Advertisers who have included you in tailored audiences to serve you 

• Demographic and interest data about your account from our ads 

• Information that Snapkyu has inferred about you such as your age range, gender, languages, and interests 


We also provide a version of these tools on Snapkyu if you don’t have an Snapkyu account, or if you’re logged out of your account. This lets you see the data and settings for the logged out browser or device you are using, separate from any Snapkyu account that uses that browser or device.

3 Information We Share and Disclose

3.1      Sharing You Control

We share or disclose your personal data with your consent or at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account or when you direct us to share your feedback with a business. If you’ve shared information like Direct Messages or protected Posts with someone else who accesses Snapkyu through a third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-party service. Subject to your settings, we also provide certain third parties with personal data to help us offer or operate our services. For example, we share with advertisers the identifiers of devices that saw their ads, to enable them to measure the effectiveness of our advertising business. You can control whether Snapkyu shares your personal data in this way by using the “Share your data with Snapkyu’s business partners” option in your Personalization and Data settings. (This setting does not control sharing described elsewhere in our Privacy Policy, such as when we share data with our service providers.) The information we share with these partners does not include your name, email address, phone number, or Snapkyu username, but some of these partnerships allow the information we share to be linked to other personal information if the partner gets your consent first.

3.2      Service Providers

We engage service providers to perform functions and provide services to us in the United States, Ireland, and other countries. For example, we use a variety of third-party services to help operate our services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our services, such as Google Analytics. We may share your private personal data with such service providers subject to obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions (service providers may use other non-personal data for their own benefit). We share your payment information with payment services providers to process payments; prevent, detect, and investigate fraud or other prohibited activities; facilitate dispute resolution such as chargebacks or refunds; and for other purposes associated with the acceptance of credit and debit cards.

3.3      Law, Harm, and the Public Interest

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 personal data.

3.4      Affiliates and Change of Ownership

In the event that we are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets, your personal data may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.

We may also disclose personal data about you to our affiliates in order to help operate our services and our affiliates’ services, including the delivery of ads.

3.5      Non-Personal Information

We share or disclose non-personal data, such as aggregated information like the total number of times people engaged with a Post, demographics, the number of people who clicked on a particular link or voted on a poll in a Post (even if only one did), the topics that people are Posting about in a particular location, some inferred interests, or reports to advertisers about how many people saw or clicked on their ads.
