Cookies & Milk has developed a service ("Hipmoji") that taps users' friends and people that share their interests to deliver personalized entertainment. Users of our service can share information, content, photos, videos or other materials with other users (collectively, "User Content") and can interact, email, meet or otherwise communicate with other users ("User Conduct"). When you use our service, Hipmoji has access to, and in many cases can monitor, your User Content and User Conduct.
Information Collection & Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site and Services, to administer your subscription and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate and use the Site and Services.
(i)Personally Identifiable Information
When you choose to register, subscribe to any or all of our Services or create your own profile webpage on our Site, we will ask you for certain information that can be used to contact or identify you and administer your account ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, date of birth, account passwords, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address, home and business postal addresses and your privacy preferences. If you sign up to receive promotional offers or alerts via text messaging, any mobile number you provide us to receive such offers or alerts will be collected by Hipmoji as Personal Information. Hipmoji may also request that you provide Personal Information when you order additional services (for example, premium functionality), when you request promotional information, when you complete customer surveys, when you participate in contests, when you call our customer support line and if you contact or interact with us. Finally, when you apply for a job and provide us with Personal Information, we will collect such information. Your account passwords, phone number, credit card and other billing information will be encrypted on our server.
PLEASE BE AWARE that when you register through the Site and submit Personal Information to create a user profile, other users of the Site and Services may be able to see your name, date of birth, zip code, gender and/or relationship status. You can choose what Personal Information you provide as part of your user profile and in some cases you can choose whether to share that information publicly on the Site by making selections via the "user preferences" section of your profile webpage. Providing such information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with other users. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information carefully and that you not provide any information that you would not like others to be able to see or view publicly, since that could allow others to identify you.
