Privacy Policy

ROOVET PRIVACY POLICY


When you use our services, you’re trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility and work hard to protect your information and put you in control.


This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, export, and delete your information.

We build a range of services that help millions of people daily to explore and interact with the world in new ways. Our services include:



1.Roovet apps, sites, and devices, like Search, Roovet Video, and Roovet Store

2.Platforms like the Roovet Social and Roovet Experience

3.Products that are integrated into third-party apps and sites, like ads and embedded Roovet Maps


You can use our services in a variety of ways to manage your privacy. For example, you can sign up for a Roovet Account if you want to create and manage content like emails and photos, or see more relevant search results. And you can use many Roovet services when you’re signed out or without creating an account at all, like searching on Roovet or watching Roovet videos. You can also choose to browse the web privately using Chrome in Incognito mode. And across our services, you can adjust your privacy settings to control what we collect and how your information is used.

To help explain things as clearly as possible, we’ve added examples, explanatory videos, and definitions for key terms. And if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION ROOVET COLLECTS


We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services

We collect information to provide better services to all our users — from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which Roovet videos you might like. The information Roovet collects, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services and how you manage your privacy controls.

When you’re not signed in to a Roovet Account, we store the information we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application, or device you’re using. This helps us do things like maintain your language preferences across browsing sessions.

When you’re signed in, we also collect information that we store with your Roovet Account, which we treat as personal information.

WHY ROOVET COLLECTS DATA



We use data to build better services

We use the information we collect from all our services for the following purposes:

Provide our services



We use your information to deliver our services, like processing the terms you search for in order to return results or helping you share content by suggesting recipients from your contacts.

Maintain & improve our services


We also use your information to ensure our services are working as intended, such as tracking outages or troubleshooting issues that you report to us. And we use your information to make improvements to our services — for example, understanding which search terms are most frequently misspelled helps us improve spell-check features used across our services.

Develop new services


We use the information we collect in existing services to help us develop new ones. For example, understanding how people organized their photos in Follow The Leader, Roovet's first photos app, helped us design and launch Roovet Experience.

Provide personalized services, including content and ads


We use the information we collect to customize our services for you, including providing recommendations, personalized content, and customized search results. For example, Security Checkup provides security tips adapted to how you use Roovet products. And Roovet App Center uses information like apps you’ve already installed and videos you’ve watched on Roovet Video to suggest new apps you might like.

Depending on your settings, we may also show you personalized ads based on your interests. For example, if you search for “mountain bikes,” you may see an ad for sports equipment when you’re browsing a site that shows ads served by Roovet. You can control what information we use to show you ads by visiting your ad settings.

We don’t show you personalized ads based on sensitive categories, such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.
We don’t share information that personally identifies you with advertisers, such as your name or email, unless you ask us to. For example, if you see an ad for a nearby flower shop and select the “tap to call” button, we’ll connect your call and may share your phone number with the flower shop.
