WE DO NOT SELL PERSONAL INFORMATION
We have never sold your Personal Information, and we will not sell your Personal Information to third parties for their use without your consent.
In accordance with California law, minors under the age of eighteen (18) residing in California may remove, or request and obtain the removal of, content and information that they share on the Website or App. In order to remove or to request and obtain the removal of such content and information, the user must email email@example.com. Users should be aware that removing content and information posted by a minor does not ensure complete or comprehensive erasure of content or information posted on our Services.
Under certain circumstances, Uzume may not have to comply with the above removal requirements. Uzume also reserves the right, to the extent permitted by law, to anonymize the posted content or information or to make such content or information invisible to other users and the public, instead of removing or deleting the content or information.

Social Media Features
You can log in to our Services using Facebook Connect. Facebook Connect will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain Personal Information with us, such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form.
INFORMATION YOU SHARE SOCIALLY
Keep in mind that the users who view any content you share (e.g. your profile or your DMs) can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to Uzume as well: Don’t share or make public any content that you wouldn’t want someone else to save or share.
How we secure, store, and retain information
We take reasonable technical and organizational precautions to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your Personal Information. We use security measures to help protect your Personal Information against loss, misuse or unauthorized disclosure, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to us over the internet. We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, but there is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or lost. Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security of your Personal Information. You also play a role in protecting your Personal Information. Please safeguard your username and password for your Account and do not share them with others. If we receive from you instructions to use your Account login information, such as when contacting our customer service, we will consider that you have authorized those instructions. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security related to the Services. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse to provide the Services, terminate your Account, and to remove or edit content.
The Personal Information that you provide to us is generally stored on servers maintained by AWS, or Amazon Web Services. These servers are located in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction, you should be aware that once your Personal Information is submitted through our Services, it will be transferred to our servers in the United States and therefore governed by local data protection laws, which can vary state by state.
Uzume is headquartered in the United States, but be aware that third party services may be located around the world. If you are using our Services from outside the United States, be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. By using our Services, you consent to such transfers of this information.
You can correct or remove your information
If any of the information that we have about you is incorrect, or you wish to have information (including Personal Information) removed from our records, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use email to respond to support inquiries and to share information about our products, services, and promotional offers that we think may interest you. If you prefer not to receive these messages from us, please let us know by clicking on the unsubscribe link within any message that you receive.
