Privacy Policy

 Last updated: September 25, 2018

 

Joy Journey Girls (“Joy Girl”, “we”, “our” or “us”) respects the privacy rights of our online visitors and mobile customers and recognizes the importance of protecting the information collected about you. For our practices regarding children, please see below.

 

About this privacy policy

 

This Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies to the collection, use and disclosure of personal and non-personal information by Joy Journey Girls and the mobile apps published by Joy Journey Girls (the “Apps”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to the collection, use or disclosure of personal and non-personal information through any apps for which Joy Journey Girls is not the publisher.

 

By using the Apps, you signify your assent to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use any of our Apps.

 

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check the Privacy Policy each time you use our Apps to ensure you are aware of any changes in our privacy practices. Our Privacy Policy will indicate the date it was last updated. Your continued use of our Apps will signify your acceptance of the changes to our Privacy Policy. If there is a substantive or material change in the way that we use your personal information, we will notify you via email of the relevant changes or provide other prominent notice. If you choose to opt-out of or not opt-in to our changed practice, our email communication (if applicable) will contain instructions on how to do so. If such change affects children users, we will first notify and obtain the prior verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian.

 

1 How we protect the online privacy of children under 13

 

Joy Journey Girls takes many precautions to protect the online privacy of children. Whenever we refer to “children” in this Privacy Policy, we mean children under the age of 13. Please help us in protecting children’s privacy by instructing them to never provide any personal information (full name, email address, home address, phone number, etc.) without your permission.

 

Joy Journey Girls follows the principles of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), a U.S. law designed to protect the online privacy of children, in our online services and Apps that are directed to children. If you would like to learn more about COPPA, you can refer to the “Children’s Privacy” section of the Federal Trade Commission’s website.

 

Currently, Joy Journey Girls does not knowingly collect any personal information from children or within the child-directed portions of our Apps except as otherwise outlined in this Privacy Policy. If we were to collect and store personal information from children, we would obtain the consent of a parent or legal guardian before such collection, unless the collection of information falls within an exception that is permitted under COPPA.

 

In our Apps directed to children users, we collect information which includes persistent identifiers such as a device identifier (“device ID”) or an Internet Protocol address (“IP address”). This information is collected solely for the purpose of providing functionality and support for our internal operations and optimizing our users’ game experience.

 

The Apps may contain advertisements about Joy Journey Girls or third party products and services. In any case, Joy Journey Girls does not permit behaviorally-targeted advertising to children in the Apps or in the Apps where we have actual knowledge that the user is under the age of 13.

 

If you believe that we may have unintentionally collected your child’s personal information without your prior consent, you may contact Joy Journey Girls
