PRIVACY POLICY


We're thrilled you've decided to read our Privacy Policy. To spare you some time, here's a short summary that you can read in 1 minute:


BASICALLY, we collect and store some information about you to run our services (your name, e-mail address and your native language) and we also collect information about you from third parties (e.g. Google Analytics). Just like all other companies, we also use cookies to make our services smoother.


Occasionally, we will send you reports about your English learning progress and some notifications to reinforce your learning cadence to continue to help improve your English vocabulary. You may opt out of these emails at any time.

We will never sell your information or share it with third parties, unless we are required by the law.

If you're suffering from sleep disorders, we can assure you that after reading the first paragraph of the boring legal text below, you'll sleep like a log. As you see, along with your English vocabulary, we care about your health condition as well. Keep reading.


Privacy Policy


1. GENERAL


At Skeebdo, we care about your personal data, so we have prepared this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use and share it.


This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") details the personal data that the web-based service ("Service") of Skeebdo ("Skeebdo", "we", "us" or "our"), - a service by DappWall GmbH - receives about you, how we process it and your rights and obligations in relation to your personal data. DappWall GmbH, a company registered at In Den Ziegelhoefen 93, 4054, Basel, Switzerland is the data controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and any relevant local legislation ("Data Protection Laws").


By using or accessing the Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms not defined here have the meanings set forth in the terms and conditions (the "Terms and Conditions"), located at https://skeebdo.com/terms. We may update our Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we do this and the changes are material, we will post a notice that we have made changes to this Privacy Policy on www.skeebdo.com ("Website") for at least 7 days before the changes are made, and we will indicate the date these terms were last revised at the bottom of the Privacy Policy. Any revisions to this Privacy Policy will become effective at the end of that 7 day period.


If you are an employee, worker or contractor of Skeebdo, the information about how we handle your personal information is available in the Skeebdo internal knowledge base. With respect to employees based in Europe, we are committed to cooperating with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by such authorities with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU in the context of the employment relationship.

You can find more information about cookies and how to manage them at https://www.cookiesandyou.com/.


4. Information Obtained by Third Parties


To support and enhance the Service, we work with a variety of third party advertising networks, marketing analytics service providers and website analysis firms, such as Google, Facebook, Oath, and Unity (collectively, "Third Party Advertising Service Providers"). These Third Party Advertising Service Providers collect and use personal data about your visits to and use of the Website and mobile Application, as well as other websites in order to serve you with advertisements and content tailored to meet your preferences and likely interests or better understand ad effectiveness. Aggregate demographic and interest data will also be used for market research purposes.


We use Google Analytics which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how users engage with the Website. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our site. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Website and Service. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.


You can opt-out of receiving personalized ads from advertisers and ad networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") or who follow the DAA Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising using their respective opt-out tools. The NAI's opt-out tool can be found here http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and the DAA's opt out tool can be found here http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.


In addition, your mobile devices may offer settings that enable you to make choices about the collection, use, or transfer of mobile app information for online behavioral advertising (for example, Apple iOS’ Advertising ID and Google Android’s Advertising ID). Please note that opting out does not prevent the display of all advertisements to you.


5. Use of information obtained by Skeebdo


Skeebdo may occasionally send you service related and product change announcements through the general operation of the Service. We will send you reminder notifications to reinforce the learning cadence, along with progress-related notifications to continue to help improve your English vocabulary. We process your data to help provide you with the Service and offer personalized features, to understand and improve our Service and to keep our Service safe and secure.


Skeebdo may use or share anonymous data collected through the Service, including Activity Data without limitation. As a business, it is critical that we perform our contract with you with the best service possible, and it is in our legitimate interests to perform these processing functions and to enable service e-mails by default to keep your data secure and provide our Service. You may opt out of any non-essential service e-mails at any time by using the Unsubscribe function, found on all of our recurring e-mails. Please note, however, that essential service e-mails will still be sent.


Your Skeebdo account email address is not shown publicly. In the case however that you were invited to the Skeebdo platform and have signed up using a person’s referral link, your email address will be shown to the person who’s referral link you used within the Skeebdo platform.


Profile information is used by Skeebdo to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the Service. In some cases, Skeebdo administrators may be able to supplement your profile. Skeebdo uses this information to provide you with support, to send you essential notifications, to enforce our terms, conditions and policies, to communicate with you, to administer the Services, and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical, and survey purposes. Skeebdo’s Terms and Conditions provide the contractual lawful basis for these processing activities.


6. Sharing your personal data with third parties


Skeebdo shares your personal data only when it is necessary to offer the Service, legally required, or permitted by you.
We will provide personal data to hosting providers such as Amazon Web Services, search engine providers such as Google, analytics providers such as Crashlytics, and support providers such as ZenDesk.


These data processors help us bring you the Service. For example, we may share your information in order to detect where or how you encountered a bug when using our mobile application. In connection with these operations, our service providers will have access to personal data for a limited time. When we utilize service providers for processing any personal data, we implement contractual protections limiting the use of that personal data to the provision of services to Skeebdo.


We will be required to access and disclose personal data in response to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, we will access and share account or other personal data when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service or using the Skeebdo name, or to prevent imminent harm. This will include accessing and sharing personal data with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.


We will never share examination results with any party without your approval, except that anonymized examination results will be used by Skeebdo and its partners to improve the examination and for research and analysis.


If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Skeebdo business, or individual business units or assets owned by Skeebdo that are related to the Service, were to change, your personal data will be transferred to the new owner. In any such transfer of information, your personal data would remain subject to this section.


Skeebdo will share aggregate or anonymous data collected through the Service, including Activity Data, for purposes such as understanding or improving the service.


7. Data subject rights and data retention


You can manage your account settings at https://skeebdo.com/dashboard/myaccount to update, amend, and correct your information.


You also have the following rights in relation to the personal data we hold about you, unless provided otherwise by local law:


Please note however that with the deletion of certain personal data, you will lose access to parts or even all of the Service:


Skeebdo will retain your data until your account is deleted, after which point we will retain anonymous data collected through the Service, including Activity Data, which may be used by Skeebdo and shared with third parties in any manner.


Please note that some of these rights are not absolute. In some cases, we may refuse a request to exercise particular rights if complying with it meant that we are no longer able to meet our contractual obligation to provide you with particular products and services. We will keep you informed as to the actions that we can take when you make your request.


You may also have the right to make a GDPR complaint to the relevant Supervisory Authority. A list of Supervisory Authorities is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm. If you need further assistance regarding your rights, please contact us using the contact information provided below and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable law. In some cases our ability to uphold these rights for you may depend upon our obligations to process personal information for security, safety, fraud prevention reasons, compliance with regulatory or legal requirements, or because processing is necessary to deliver the services you have requested. Where this is the case, we will inform you of specific details in response to your request.


8. Third party websites and links


Please note that you may have cookies placed on your computer by third party websites that refer you to our Service. Although we do not share your personal data with these third party websites unless it is reasonably necessary to offer the Service, they may be able to link certain non- personally identifiable information we transfer to them with personal data they previously collected from you. Please review the privacy policies of each website you visit to better understand their privacy practices. In addition, Skeebdo would like to inform you that anytime you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies.


Our Services contain links to other sites operated by third parties. Skeebdo does not control such other sites and is not responsible for their content, their privacy policies, or their use of personal data, including any personal or financial information collected by our third party payment processor to process payments for in-app purchases. Skeebdo’s inclusion of such links does not imply any endorsement of the content on such sites or of their owners or operators except as disclosed on the Services. Any information submitted by you directly to these third parties is subject to that third party’s privacy policy.


9. Age restriction and minors


Skeebdo does not make a distinction regarding the age of the user. We provide our Service to all age groups.


We expect users to follow the age restriction limitations set forth by the various local movie and TV show related age restriction bodies, such as (but not limited to):


Skeebdo will not be held responsible for users who don’t comply and respect the age restrictions set forth by the above mentioned movie and TV show related age restriction bodies.


As a matter of principle, Skeebdo is directed towards users who have reached the age of majority. Any use by minors without the consent of their legal guardians is prohibited. Skeebdo therefore reserves the right to delete all data relating to underage users if no consent from the legal guardians is available.


10. Links


The Service may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage users to be aware when they leave the Service to read the privacy statements of other websites that collect personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by Skeebdo via the Service.


11. Information security


Skeebdo has implemented administrative and technical safeguards it believes are appropriate to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data. However, given sufficient resources, a determined attacker could defeat those safeguards and may, as a result, gain access to the data we seek to protect. DappWall GmbH will instigate civil and criminal proceedings against any attack by hackers and the like and will inform the users of any cases in which their data have been compromised.
