Acknowledgement of SmallWorld
“SmallWorld – Connecting You to Things to Do” and "SmallWorld Consulting, LLC" will hereby be referenced as “SmallWorld”, “we”, “our”, “us”, and any other accompanying, given terms.
We’ve done our best to cut through the legal jargon and explain in simple terms what information we collect about you, what we use it for, and the few situations in which we share it with others.
When you create an account with SmallWorld, you give us your full name and email address, and create a username and password. If you want, you can give us a pseudonym instead of your legal name.
If you don’t feel like creating an account from scratch, you may be able to sign in through an account you already have with another service, such as Facebook.
Your user profile helps you customize your account and connect with other SmallWorld users. Your profile automatically includes your name and username. You can also add a profile picture and whatever else you’d like in the “Bio” field.
To help you connect with other SmallWorld users and to personalize your SmallWorld experience, we may ask for additional information, including your contacts, location or a list of the apps on your mobile device. We delete or anonymize this information after we make initial recommendations to help you get started on SmallWorld, and we don’t make recommendations based on sensitive information.
We receive some other information automatically when you use SmallWorld. This includes data about your device, software, operating system, operating system- provided device or user-specific advertising IDs for advertisement tracking (“Advertising IDs”), your IP address and the date and time of each request you make to SmallWorld.
So that we can make your SmallWorld experience better, we collect information about how you view, flip and interact with content and advertisements through SmallWorld.
If you want to email something you see through SmallWorld to a friend who isn’t already a SmallWorld account holder, we may keep their email address for the purpose of sending such email and improving our services. Recipients may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
A big part of SmallWorld is sharing content you find interesting. That’s why your SmallWorld profile, the people and sources you follow, the magazines you create, the comments you post and the content you flip are all public.
Aside from that, we use your information to keep SmallWorld running, better understand how you use our service, customize your experience (including the content, marketing materials, and advertisements you see), prevent abuse and improve SmallWorld.
We share your personally identifiable information only under these circumstances:
We may disclose aggregate information about how our users use SmallWorld in a manner doesn’t identify you individually.
Cookies and HTML5 local storage are ways to keep information about your use of Internet services on your own mobile device or computer.
SmallWorld also uses web beacons in advertisements to allow SmallWorld and its advertising partners to see how users view and engage with advertisements. Depending on your advertising preferences set in your operating system, SmallWorld may share your Advertising ID with advertising partners in an anonymous fashion that is not tied to your name or email address.
Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don’t want your Internet browsing activity to be tracked. The Internet community hasn’t reached a consensus on how to best honor these signals, so we don’t respond to Do-Not-Track requests at this time.
If you’d like to delete your account, you can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we delete your account, your user profile will no longer be visible on our service, though we may still keep some log information in non-personally identifiable form and any other information you have made publicly available through SmallWorld (comments to content, for example).
