Privacy Policy

We’re always working to make our services even better. One of the ways we do that is by analysing information we collect and receive about users in order to figure out what they might be interested in. This helps us develop more engaging content and provide more effective advertising, which enables us to keep most of our services free.

This Privacy Policy describes how we handle the information we collect and receive about users. There are three things you should keep in mind as you read it:

First, the Privacy Policy applies to Bouncing websites, mobile apps, other online services and anything else that links to or refers to this policy. To keep things simple, we refer to all these services as our “Services.”

Second, the Privacy Policy applies no matter what computer or device you use to access our Services.

Third, we may provide additional information about the privacy practices for some of our Services.

We’ve done our best to keep this Privacy Policy short and simple, but if you have any questions about it, we hope you’ll let us know.

Information We Collect and Receive

We collect and receive information about users in a few different ways:

Information you give us. You can give us information directly. For example:

When you purchase one of our paid services, you give us your billing information, which may include your credit card data;

To improve our Services. We also use the information we collect and receive to provide content and advertising that people are likely to find relevant and engaging. For example:

“Do Not Track” Signals

Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. BouncingBelly currently does not take action in response to these signals.

Our Commitment to Security

Although no one can guarantee the security of the information collected and received, we do employ reasonable safeguards intended to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access or disclosure of this information.
