Welcome to the Meaning Bot Privacy Policy

Last Update: 06.10.2018

When you use Meaning Bot (also referred to herein as MBOT) services, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully. And remember, you can find controls to manage your information and protect your privacy and security at My Account.

1 Privacy Policy

There are different ways you can use our Emotional Intelligence services – to search for and share information or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a MBOT Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant analysis results and to help you connect with people. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. Our Privacy Policy explains:

We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers. Your privacy matters to MBOT so whether you are new to MBOT or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.

2 Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which information you’ll find most useful and the people who matter most to you online. We collect information in the following ways:

3 How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect MBOT and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads. We may use the name you provide for your MBOT Profile across all of the services we offer that require a MBOT Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your MBOT Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible MBOT Profile information, such as your name and photo. If you have a MBOT Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on MBOT. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your MBOT Account. When you contact MBOT, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you results, we will not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health. Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant results. We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other MBOT services. Depending on your account settings, your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve MBOT’s services. We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy. MBOT processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

4 Transparency and choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.

5 Information you share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including MBOT.

6 Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

7 Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of MBOT unless one of the following circumstances applies:

We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services. If MBOT is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

8 Information security

We work hard to protect MBOT and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

9 When this Privacy Policy applies

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by MBOT LLC. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may include MBOT services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads.

10 Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self-regulatory frameworks, including the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

11 Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.


Privacy and You

MeaningBot and the GDPR Initiative

We adhere to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations)

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 theteam@meaningbot.com and we will notify you of our efforts to do so within the required time necessary.
