3. ONLINE PRIVACY CHOICES
You have some choices regarding how we use your personal information, including the following:
- Access to Your Device Information. You may control the Services’ access to your device information through your “Settings” app on your device. For instance, you can withdraw permission for the app to access your camera. However, note that withdrawing such permission may result in the Services not operating properly.
- Communications Preferences. You may not opt-out of Service-related communications (e.g., account verification, transactional communications, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices), which we may send through text message or in-app notifications.
- How to Control Push Notifications. You can stop receiving push notifications from us by changing your preferences in the iOS or Android notifications settings menu.

4. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
MashApp does not knowingly collect through the Service, any personal information from children under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. In the European Union, MashApp requires the authorization of a parent or guardian where it is processing the personal information of a child aged between 13 and 16 years old. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of a consent form that can be used to provide this authorization.
5. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES
The Services may contain integrations or links to third party websites or services, including those of our business partners. By interacting with these third parties, you may be providing information directly to the third party. You acknowledge that MashApp is not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties or any entity that it does not own or control. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and online terms of those third parties to learn more about their privacy practices.
6. REGION-SPECIFIC NOTICE
A. European Union, UK and Switzerland.
If you are in the European Union, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, please know that MashApp, Inc. is the controller of the personal information collected through the Services. Additionally, the following terms apply to the processing of your information:
i. Legal Bases.
When we process your personal information, we will rely on the following legal bases to process your personal information:
- Legitimate Interests. We might process your information because we have a legitimate business interest in doing so. For example, we need to use your information to provide and improve the Services, including protecting your account, delivering your Mashups and Punchlines, providing customer support, and helping you find members and content we think you’ll like. We will hold on to this information for as long as our legitimate interests aren’t outweighed by the potential risk to your right to privacy, unless we have a legal obligation to keep the information for a longer time.
- Consent. We may ask for your consent to use your information for specific purposes. If we do, you will have the opportunity to withdraw your consent either within the Services, through your device permissions, or by contacting us using the contact information below. We will hold on to this information for as long as we need to fulfil the purposes of your consent, unless we have a legal obligation to keep the information for a longer time.
- Legal Obligations. We may need to collect and use your information to comply with our legal obligations or otherwise protect our rights or the rights of third parties. For example, we may need to respond to valid legal process or take action to protect our users. We will hold on to this information as long as needed to fulfil the legal obligation or to protect our rights and those of third parties.
ii. International Transfers.
Using the Services may result in your data being transferred to and stored at facilities in the United States or other countries outside of where you live, where the Service is operated, or where our third party service providers and partners are located. The data protection laws in these locations may not meet the same level of protection as in the EU, UK or Switzerland. Whenever we share information of users outside these we want our users to be aware of the risks and to understand that we strive to put in place safeguards for such transfers.
iii. Data Rights.
When we process your information, you can request access to the data we process, that we fix inaccurate information about you or that we delete your information. In some cases, you may also object to or restrict our use of your information. You may be able to exercise these rights directly within the app. Otherwise, you may contact us using the information below to request our help with exercising these rights.
If you have any questions or complaints about how we handle your personal information, please contact us directly. Note that you may also file a complaint with your local supervisory authority.
