Information Collection and Use

Information Collected Upon Registration

When you create an account on the Website, you must provide some personal information, such as your first name, last name, username, password, and email address. Your full name and username will be listed publicly on your profile page on the Website. Viewing user profiles do not require registration.

You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as your age, sex, short biography, your location, a picture, or a link to your personal website. You may provide us with additional contact information (jabber ID and phone number) to receive notifications from the Website via jabber messages or SMS. We use this contact information only to send you some of the content posted on the Website and we don't disclose or transfer it to anybody. You can unsubscribe from these messages on Notifications tab of your profile. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.

Posts, Following and other Public Information

Our Website is designed in the first place to help you share information with other peoeple. Most of the information you provide to us is information you want to make public. This includes not only the messages you post and the metadata provided with posts, such as when you posted it, but also the people you follow, the posts you liked or disliked and many other bits of information. Your public information can be broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public posts are searchable by many search engines and are immediately delivered via SMS and our APIs to other users or services. You should be careful about all information that will be made public by Lumoza, not just your posts.
