There are many different ways you can use our services-to share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we are using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. We've tried to keep it as simple as possible but we also encourage you to read about our Terms first. Your privacy matters to Obitt, so whether you are new to Obitt or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices-and if you have any questions contact us.
Personally identifiable information- Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to determine your personal identity, such as your name or email address. When you create an account we ask for your name and email address. If you link your third-party social network accounts to your Obitt account, we may also collect your user name for that account, which is also considered personally identifiable information.
Optional profile data- Obitt gives you the opportunity to update your public profile with information about yourself such as your photos, your website and a short biography. This information is public as described under "What is public and what is private?"
Information from the accounts you link to Obitt If you connect your Obitt account to your third-party social network accounts (e.g., Facebook and Google), they may send us information about you, including your name, username at those services, Unique User ID ("UUID") for those services, friends list, status, profile information, age and gender.
Demographic data- At registration we may collect additional demographic information about you, such as your location and interests. Obitt may receive this information from you or from your activities within Obitt like friends, photos and comments you post, or we may make assumptions based on the other information that we collect.

(i) Details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
(ii) Internet Protocol Address (IP address).
(iii) Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
(iv) Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Obitt Account.
Sharing- We retain information about the Obitt pages, photos, files, or other data that you share through the sharing functionality of Obitt. This information is associated with your Obitt account. Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Obitt, such as when you post a contribution , upload a photo, or comment on Obit contributions post. It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you follow a friend, like an Obit or tag a place in your post.
Your communications- Obitt offers users various communication tools, including instant messaging. For more information about Obitt's collection and storage of your communications see "Obitt's communications platforms."
Email address of friends you invite If you use the Obitt feature that allows you to invite friends to use Obitt, we will ask for your friend's email address but we will only use it to send them the invitation.
Obitt values your privacy and as such encourage you to make the most of the control and account settings that we have put in place to allow you to share with your desired audience. People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
(a) Review and control certain types of information tied to your Obitt account by using Obitt account settings.
(b) Edit your ads preferences, such as which categories might interest you.
(c) Control who you share information with.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it's important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Obitt profiles are designed to be public in order to allow people with similar interests to find each other and share their interests. This section describes which information is public. Public information is available to everyone on the Internet and can be viewed, copied, indexed, transferred and searched.
(a)Your profile-Your Obitt public profile and all of the information on it, including your picture, mutual friends (with other Obitt users searching for you within Obitt) and some of your comments and the people you follow and who follow you on Obitt, are all public.
Your username will also be part of your public profile URL (your Obitt profile web address) and will also be displayed to users you follow. Because of the way the Internet works, when you or other users click on a link from your public profile page, the website that you go to or the advertisements that you click on will also receive the URL that you are coming from, which includes your user name (known as the "referrer URL").
(b) Your activity on Obitt. This includes your contributions to Obits, sharing, comments and likes.
The following information is not made available as part of your public profile or otherwise made public by Obitt:
(i) your age and gender

(iv) your third-party social network friends
(v) your chat communications
(vi) your log data

Your preferences are also automatically set to store your chat messages history on Obitt's servers. You can view or delete your chat history by clicking on the chat history delete icon in your chat window.
Keep in mind that even if you elect not to store your chat history, the person that you're chatting with may be storing your conversation, either on Obitt, on their chat network's servers or on their own computers.
