We have adopted the following policy to advise you of our use of your personal information and your choices regarding that use. This policy describes what types of information we gather about you, how we use it, under what circumstances we disclose it to third parties, and your rights to change or delete it.
B. Scope of Policy
This Policy applies to information collected by the Silly Face Fun application and Website (collectively "Product").

II. INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
A. Information Gathered From You
1. Aggregate Data
We gather certain generic information about the use of the Product, such as the frequency with which you open it, and the content that you favor. We may collect information from you based on the application or applications that you elect to use from us. For example, we may track how much time you spend using the application.
These statistics are very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use this type of data in aggregate--that is, we look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data helps us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of our application, which, in turn, enables us to make it as appealing as possible. This data does not contain any personally identifiable information about you.
We may also use the geographic location provided by your device to notify you of stores or products near you. This location is not tied to your personally identifiable information, and you may, of course, prevent the use of your location through your device settings.
2. When You Send A Silly Face
When you use our Product and share a silly face or any other content electronically, we collect your recipient's e-mail address. This information is necessary to send the content and provide confirmation that it has been received. We will not use your recipient's information for any purpose other than to send the silly face.
PLEASE NOTE: Our products are neither intended nor appropriate for anonymous communications.
3. When You Input Information
When you put information into the Product, such as a zip code, we store that information and use it for the purposes for which it was provided.
