WalQlike Privacy Policy

The WalQlike mobile application (the "Application"), as well as WalQlike website (the "Sites") and any content therein (collectively, the "Services") offer users touristic routes in a city for sightseeing. The rout is built as a quest excursion during which users answer questions and get advices and reference information about location they have visited (“Location”). In this Privacy Policy ("Policy"), we describe how we collect, use, and disclose information that we obtain about users of our Services, which are available via mobile applications (the "App") and/or the Sites.

What Information We Collect

Account Information. When you first launch the App and/or the Sites, we assign you a user id but we do not require you to provide your name or phone number.

Geolocation Data. We ask you to share your location information from your mobile device and/or computer. If you choose not to, the Services will not function. Location information is used to place you your point of interest(PIN) . You can revoke your consent by changing the settings or preferences on your device and/or computer or by deleting WalQlike from your device.

Your Content and Usage. We collect any content you submit to the Services. The content includes anything in your messeges (for example, attached photos), replies and votes, as well as information about when you submitted the content, when it was viewed, and other activities.

E-mail address. We may ask you to provide and verify your e-mail. This process may be triggered, for example, if while registering you chose to register via e-mail and then when you wanted to enter an app again, you had forgotten your password. It may also be triggered if you log in to a Site so that we can connect your Site usage with your App usage.

Other Information you Provide to Us . When you contact or otherwise communicate with WalQlike App, we will collect any information you volunteer.

We may automatically collect information about your use of the Services such as: access time, device ID, application ID or other unique identifier; domain name, IP address; geo-location data (with your permission); language information; device name and model; operating system information; your activities within the Services; and the length of time that you are logged in. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected about you.

Social Media Sites. You can like us on Facebook, and promote us on other social media sites. We collect information about who has liked us or followed us. You may also share your WalQlike activity through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts if you want.

And, your information may be made available to government or law enforcement requests.

However, we cannot prevent others from determining your identity from the content you post your nickname, or how you share content through third party sites. The information we collect, including personally identifiable information, may be shared as follows:

Cookies

"Cookies" are small data file identifiers that are transferred to your computer that allow us to recognize your browser and transfer information about you and your use of our Services.

Unlike persistent cookies, session ID cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from a Service and close your browser.

If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all portions of the Services or all functionality of the Services.
