We collect the content and other information you provide when you use our App, including when you sign up for an account, share content, and communicate with others through the HobNob App. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of or the date a file was created. It can also include what you see through features we provide.

We also collect contact information if you choose to upload, which we use for things like helping you and others find people you may know or like and for the other purposes listed below.

  • Your usage. We collect information about how you use our App, such as the types of content you view or engage with; the features you use; the actions you take; the people or accounts you interact with; and the time, frequency and duration of your activities.

  • Device attributes: information such as the operating system, hardware and software versions, battery level, signal strength, available storage space, browser type, app and file names and types, and plugins.

We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services for the HobNob App, or until your account is deleted – whichever comes first.

We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:

  • In response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States when we have a good- faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.
  • When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the App, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property or App), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or

We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other term violations.

How do we operate and transfer data as part of our global services?

We share information globally with our partners and with those you connect and share with around the world in accordance with this policy. Your information may, for example, be transferred or transmitted to, or stored and processed in the United States or other countries outside of where you live for the purposes as described in this policy. These data transfers are necessary to provide the services set forth in the HobNob App Terms and to globally operate and provide our App to you. We utilize standard contract clauses, rely on the European Commission’s adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, and obtain your consent for these data transfers to the United States and other countries.
