Privacy Policy


Your personal privacy and the privacy of your data is paramount to us at Megalo Social. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to clearly explain how we protect you and your data at Megalo Social.

PRIVACY BILL OF RIGHTS

We are uncompromising about trust, respect and integrity.

You own your personal information & content. It is explicitly not ours.

You never receive targeted third-party advertisements or targeted third-party content. We think that's creepy.

You have full control over your newsfeed and the order of how posts appear.

We do not manipulate, filter, or change the order of your newsfeeds. Only you can do that.

Permissions & privacy are your rights. You control them.

You control who can access your content.

You can opt out of our member directory to protect your privacy.

We do not sell your personal information to anyone.

Your face is your business. We do not use facial recognition technology.

You have the right to delete your account and take your content with you at any time.

 

Content Privacy Policy: You Own Your Content

You are our customer to delight, not data to sell or allow others to target. You own your content. We don’t. We don’t share your content with marketers. Third parties cannot pay Megalo Social to target you. At Megalo Social you have full control over your newsfeed and the order of how posts appear.

Illegal activity is not permitted. If we are made aware of illegal activity, we will take appropriate action. We ask that you not post any content that violates our Terms of Service (TOS). Please see our TOS for the list of activities that are not permitted at Megalo Social and the actions we may take with TOS violators.

Tracking Privacy Policy: We Respect Your Privacy

We don’t track you to sell your data to third parties, and we don’t track you to manipulate your newsfeed and we don’t track you when you are not on Megalo Social. To ensure the safety and security of our users, we track how members use our site. We collect your log data, usage activity, email, phone number, cookie data, and device/network information, to verify accounts; combat harmful conduct; detect and prevent spam; and to maintain the integrity of Megalo Social.

We may share and match your information against databases or with third parties bound by confidentiality who specialize in identifying trolls, bots, scammers, spammers, fake accounts, stalkers, or illegal activity. We may also use pattern tracking to identify and remove disruptive elements such as trolls, bots, scammers, spammers, fake accounts, stalkers, etc.

We monitor how users use our site in general so that we can make it better. We are monitoring traffic, usage activity, feature popularity and site performance, and we use general analytic tools so that we can improve your experience.

Service Providers

We use third-party service providers to help operate Megalo Social, such as with hosting and to protect our users. We may share your information with these service providers on the condition that they use your private personal data only on our behalf and consistent with this Privacy Policy.

If you make payments on Megalo Social, we may share your payment information with third-party payment service 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.

Cookies – Where and Why

We use cookies on Megalo Social to make your experience better. We NEVER use cookies for third-parties to target you or market to you. Cookies on Megalo Social let you log in and out of Megalo Social without needing to retype your login and password. Cookies on Megalo Social tell us how many people use a certain feature, how they use it and with what frequency, and whether people open an email we send.

Cookies are another way we protect you from security risks. We use cookies to remember your settings and preferences, like the language you prefer and your privacy settings. We use cookies or similar technologies to identify your log data. We use cookies to detect when someone might be trying to hack your Megalo Social account or spam the Megalo Social community.

Message Disappearance

You have the ability to send certain types of messages through our services that automatically disappear. If you send such disappearing messages through our services they will be automatically deleted once they have been viewed or have expired.

But — and this is important — you should understand that users who see your messages can always save them, either by taking a screenshot or by using some other image-capture technology (whether that be software or even something as old-fashioned as a camera to take a photo of your device’s screen). The same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to Megalo Social as well: Don’t send messages that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

In most cases, once we detect that all recipients have viewed a message, we automatically delete it from our servers. And again in most cases, the services are programmed to delete the message from the recipients’ device as well. There are, however, exceptions to this general rule: We can’t guarantee that messages will be deleted within a specific timeframe. And even after we’ve deleted message data from our servers, that same data may remain in backup for a limited period of time.

We may receive requests from law enforcement requiring us by law to suspend our ordinary server-deletion practices for specific information.

As with any digital information, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients’ devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted.

 

Your Identity: We Protect It To The Extent The Law Allows

We do our best to protect your identity at all times and we are respectful of the law. Megalo Social will disclose personally-identifying information when required to do so by law.

Linking to Third Party Sites: These Are Your Decisions And Responsibilities

As an optional convenience for you, Megalo Social offers you the opportunity to link to and/or connect to third party websites, advertisers, vendor products, services, etc., including and not limited to social network sites like Twitter. When you click-through, connect or link to these third party sites, products, services, etc., you are no longer protected by Megalo Social's Privacy Policy. If you share to any third party social site from Megalo Social, they will not be able to see back into your Megalo Social account. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these third parties, as they differ from Megalo Social's privacy practices as set forth in this Privacy Policy. Megalo Social is not liable for wrongful use, loss, or disclosure of your personally-identifying information related to your use of any third party.

Security: HTTPS and Encryption

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal user data and other information transmitted to us. For example, we encrypt your personally identifiable information, and most, if not all requests from you to the server are created over a secure connection (HTTPS). However, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a child under the age of 16, we will delete such information from our records.

Notifications: We’d Like To Keep You Up To Date

If you are a registered user of Megalo Social you may receive notifications and updates while using our service. Additionally, if you have supplied your email address, Megalo Social may want to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, and keep you up to date about the privacy and integrity issues we care most about and how our company is working to support them. You can opt-out of these email notifications.

Privacy Policy Changes: Immediate Notification & Easy Opt Out

If Megalo Social changes any aspect of its Privacy Policy, we will notify you with a link to the changes so you can review and understand them, and provide you with an easy way to opt out of our service and delete your account if you wish.
