WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY - AND HERE'S HOW WE DO THAT
These are our privacy policies
The website www.fellody.com is owned and controlled by Zokyo AG (‘Zokyo’ or ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’).
Before we start off, we want you to keep one thing in mind:
Fellody is a social networking site, so first and foremost you as a member fill the community with content. You create your profile, fill it with information about yourself, pictures and videos and share this information with others. This means you make data concerning your person public. Please choose wisely which information you want to make public and consider your own privacy and personal safety when sharing your information with anyone. We make every effort to protect your data technically.
This policy applies to all websites (including fellody.com), products, applications, downloadable products and services offered by Zokyo wherever this policy is displayed. Although we try to keep you up-to-date on all changes made to the website, this policy may be updated from time to time without notice to you. It is your responsibility to read the policy carefully and review any changes that may have been made.
Minors under the age of 16 are not eligible to use our service and must not attempt to register at fellody and/or submit any personal information to us. Young people between 16 and 18 should not send any information about themselves to us without asking their parents/legal guardians for permission beforehand. If we become aware that anyone under the age of 16 has registered with us, we will take steps to terminate that person’s account and delete their profile information. If we do delete a profile we may retain your email and IP address to ensure that you do not try to create a new profile.
