The short version

The Kachingle Company Sites, Services and Apps (including AdoptMeApp) are committed to treating the personal and corporate information of our users with respect and sensitivity. We do not collect or share user’s personal information with third parties, other than to make available to participating clients information about posts made on their behalf by users of the Kachingle Company Sites, Services and Apps. (“Clients” is defined as animal shelters and other organizations using AdoptMeApp, TellStoryApp, SeeStoryApp, AdoptedMeApp, et al. to generate social media stories about their adoptable pets or other projects.)

As our services evolve and we perceive the need or desirability of using information collected in other ways, we may from time to time amend this Privacy Policy.

Information we collect and how we use and share it

A. Personal Information: From users we collect…

- Full name — to help Clients identify as legitimate associates anyone who has signed up to use the app on their behalf, and to identify the users associated with each post created through the AdoptMeApp/Kachingle family of apps

- Email address — also to to help Clients identify legitimate associate, and to communicate with you necessary information about our services (e.g., tech support, updates, events) or our relationships with the Clients whom users have signed up to serve

- Photos — pictures taken by users and shared through the app on behalf of clients are stored in AdoptMeApp’s database for display on Client websites and/or apps, and on social media, along with the corresponding captions and stories users create

i. We may provide your personal information to companies that perform services on our behalf, but only as necessary for them to provide those services to you.

ii. If Kachingle goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your information will likely be among the assets transferred. This Privacy Policy will become binding upon the new owner of the information until amended.

iii. We may provide your personal information if we’re required to do so to comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process, or we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary. Examples include:

C. Log Files: As is true of most websites, Kachingle Company Sites, Services and Apps gathers certain information about visitors to our Site automatically and stores that information in log files. This information includes browser type, Internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating system information, date/time stamps, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Kachingle Company Sites, Services and Apps, to track users’ movements around the Kachingle Company Sites, Services and Apps, and to gather demographic information about our user base in aggregate.
