We may supplement the Personal Information you provide with additional Personal Information we gather from public sources or from third-parties (e.g., consumer reporting agencies) that may lawfully provide such information to us.

Information Provided When You Contact Us
We may collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us when you contact us with a question or comment about our Site. We collect one or more of the following types of Personal Information when you contact us with a question or comment, or request information from us about our products and services:
Passively Collected Information
When you access and use our Site, we may automatically collect and retain certain types of information, including your computer or device’s internet protocol (IP) address and other technical information about your computer or device and website usage, such as your browser type and version, time zone setting, and operating system and platform.
When you use our open ended personality platform channel (the “Channel”) on the Site, we also collect and retain your “Channel Data,” which is defined as information and data collected from your behavior and actions in the course of using the Channel, including metadata about your real-time user interaction with the Channel. After your completion of the Channel, the Site will review your Channel Data and generate your specific “Trait Profile,” which contains the Site’s assessment and description of your cognitive, social, and personality traits.
We may collect certain additional information when you access our Site with a mobile device or with MeaningBot IOS and Android mobile apps. This information may include location, device type, unique device identifier, operation system, and other app-specific user data. This data is analyzed to help us create a more user-friendly mobile experience. You may restrict collection of certain data, like location by changing the setting preferences on your mobile device.
Personal Information of our users is an integral part of our business. We reserve the right to share your Personal Information with third parties as described below. We also reserve the right to transfer and/or sell other types of data, including aggregate or de-identified data derived from Personal Information, for lawful purposes in our discretion. Note that we do not share Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
You hereby consent to our sharing of your Personal Information and other information for the above purposes.
Our Opt-out Policy
We may send you notifications and communications using the email address you provided to us when you registered your Account. To stop receiving some or all email communications from us, you can use the “Email Settings” tab of your Account profile to edit your email preferences. Alternatively, you can use the “unsubscribe” mechanism provided in the email communication
We will also send you service-related email announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. You do not have an option to opt out of these emails, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive these announcements, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Accessing, Correcting, and Updating Your Information
You may access, correct, and update most of your Personal Information under the Account Settings tab of your Account profile. You may also email us at privacy@MeaningBot.com with information necessary for us to process your request. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe. We may need to verify your identity before granting access to Personal Information in our custody or control.
Note that because some of our Site is designed to test memory and instinctive behavior (which can be skewed through subsequent use), once you start or complete a open ended survey, your Channel Data and Trait Profile cannot be reset, amended, deleted, or overridden for a period of 12 months after you have completed the Channel.
Deactivating Your Account
You may deactivate your Account using the Deactivate Account button under the Account Settings tab on your Account profile. When you deactivate your Account, you will no longer be able to log into the Account. You will also no longer be able to create any new Accounts with the email address associated with the deactivated Account. If you wish to reactivate your deactivated Account, please email us at privacy@MeaningBot.com with the email address.
A deactivated Account does not mean that all of the information associated with your Account is expunged from our systems, although such information will now no longer be readily available to you.
Deleting Your Information
You may request to delete your Personal Information by emailing us at privacy@MeaningBot.com with information necessary for us to process your request. Note that any deletion request will be subject to our Retention Policy below.

In accordance with our obligations and requirements under local law, we must retain your information for a period of 2 years following the date of your last recorded assessment. As a result, if you request deletion of any information prior to this 2-year anniversary, we must wait until the 2-year period has passed, after which we will process your deletion request. If you do not have any recorded assessments during the last 2 years, then we will process your request within 10 business days of receipt.
Even if we are obligated to retain certain information, once you delete your Account or request deletion of your Personal Information, your Personal Information will cease being visible to third parties through our Site, regardless of whether you selected Public or Limited through the Privacy Settings tab of your Account profile.
As discussed above, we may aggregate our user’s Personal Information and other information to create de-personalized Aggregate Data which cannot be used to identify you. We will retain such Aggregate Data even after any Personal Information deletion requests have been processed.
Other Websites. Our Site may contain links to third-party owned and/or operated websites or mobile applications. We do not own nor control these third-party websites or mobile applications, and accordingly assume no responsibility for the information practices of those sites or apps. We suggest that you review their privacy, security, and data collection and distribution policies, if any, prior to providing such websites or apps with any information.
Blogs and Public Features of the Sites. Our Site may contain features, e.g. blogs, chat rooms, community forums, sharing functions, etc., that permit you to upload, post, transmit, display, perform, or distribute content and information, including your Personal Information. Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features becomes public information over which we are unable to exercise control.

Security. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We take commercially reasonable steps to help protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use one or more of secure socket layer (SSL) encryption, firewalls, and self-updating anti-virus software. Your Personal Information will be stored in the United States and will be subject to laws applicable in that country. While we take all steps, we consider appropriate, to protect your data, unfortunately, no company can fully eliminate security risks, so we cannot make guarantees about any part of our services. Please create a unique password for your Account and do not share your password with anyone else.

MeaningBot adheres to the stringent data privacy regulations now in place within the European Union.
At its core, GDPR is a new set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data. It aims to simplify the regulatory environment for business so both citizens and businesses in the European Union can fully benefit from the digital economy.
The reforms are designed to reflect the world we're living in now, and brings laws and obligations - including those around personal data, privacy and consent - across Europe up to speed for the internet-connected age.
Under the terms of GDPR, not only will organizations have to ensure that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions, but those who collect and manage it will be obliged to protect it from misuse and exploitation, as well as to respect the rights of data owners - or face penalties for not doing so.
If you want your data deleted, it is simple. Email us at email@example.com and we will notify you of our efforts to do so within the required time necessary.Back to Top
