Privacy Policy

Intro

Gobi is an app that allows the users to join and create their own groups, both public and private. Once you have joined or created a group, you can share pictures and videos with your friends, family, co-workers, fellow students, people with shared interests or complete strangers. Here, the rest of the groups’ members can show their appreciation by leaving a like.

This privacy policy describes how we (Gobitech AS) collect, use and share your information whenever you use our Services. Those Services include all the ways you may interact with us: through our mobile application, websites, or any other interaction.

Gobi users and other third parties do not have access to personal information that can be used to contact you without your approval. The following Privacy Policy determines the treatment and use of the personal information provided by you to Gobitech AS when you use the Gobi app. By using Gobi, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Gobi is owned by Gobitech AS, a Norwegian company located in Trondheim. You can contact Gobitech AS by sending an e-mail to contact@gobiapp.no.

Collection & Use

Registration – The username you enter during registration will serve as your username and may be displayed in the groups you take part in. Giving us access to your Facebook details or entering an e-mail address is required as verification and to be able to sign in to the app.

Data – All types of data that you upload may be removed by us without warning. Your data is not public unless you upload it to one of the groups you participate in. Once you upload it to one of the groups, all the members of the group will be able to see whatever data you upload. This data may be featured on external websites or applications as well.

General Use – Information in the form of usage along with data on gender, age, interests and location may be collected to give us information on how we can improve our services and may be shared with external parties.

Service Providers – The app is run through servers and different operating systems. We do not control or have liability to what data they may collect on your usage of the app.

Communications

Push Notifications – Gobi uses push notifications to allow you to stay updated on the groups that you follow. Push notifications can be deactivated on many of the common smartphones by entering the preferences for the phone. You can also choose within the app if you want to receive notifications or not.

Email – We may send you updates and questionnaires related to our terms, policies, services, Gobi and Gobitech AS.

General

Compliance – We may give personal or account data in response to requests from law enforcement officials conducting investigations, subpoenas, a court order, or if we are otherwise required to lay open such information by law.

Marketing – We may share non-personal data with third parties such as advertising partners. This data does not personally identify you or any other user.

Statistical Information – We may gather and aggregate non-identifying information regarding your use of our Service, including, username, UID and data sent and received. In addition, we may also collect information about the device you’re using the App on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Your data may be transferred, stored, processed and used in the United States and other countries where Twitter, Google, Facebook and Crashlytics operate. The local data-protection and privacy laws in these countries may offer fewer protections than those in your country of residence or from any country where you use or access the services. We collect this information in order to improve Gobi and our services.

Data Deletion

Images and videos will be removed from our servers once expired, except for situations where we are legally required to keep it. We do not control what users do with the data received, as it is possible to take a screenshot or using other image-capturing technologies. As a suggestion from Gobitech AS: do not send pictures that you do not want someone to save. We are not responsible for the images and videos uploaded to our services or the actions of our users. If you, however, see a picture that violates any of our terms you can contact us at contact@gobiapp.no, and we will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from our records. If you want to delete your account you can contact us at contact@gobiapp.no.

Children

We do not knowingly collect or store personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 years. Anyone that provides personally identifiable information through the Website or Gobi app affirms that they are over 13 years of age. If anyone is aware of users under the age of 13 we advise you to contact us, and we will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from our records.

Notices and Updates

Gobitech AS reserves the right to change or modify the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service Agreements at any time without prior notice. Your continued use of the App will constitute your acceptance of any revised Agreements. We recommend that you periodically check these Agreements for changes. If you choose to use our services, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Service. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. If you have any concern about privacy at Gobi, please contact us at contact@gobiapp.no, and we will try to resolve it. We appreciate your understanding that the app in its current state is in a process of change and improvement and so is this Privacy Policy.
