TruTravel.club and its affiliates (“Company,” “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) value the privacy of individuals who use our text chat, social news application, website, and related services (collectively, our “Services”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, use, and share information from our users (“Users,” “you,” and/or “your”) to facilitate your commenting, social news, and influencer networking experience. By using our Services, you agree to the collection, use, disclosure, and procedures this Privacy Policy describes. Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of our Services is also subject to our Terms of Service.

We process and store your information in the U.S. We neither sell your information to third parties nor share your information with foreign governments except in the limited circumstances described in this Privacy Policy (see “How We Share the Information We Collect” below for more detail).

Information We Collect
We may collect a variety of information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below.
A. Information You Provide to Us.
Registration and Profile Information. When you sign up for an account, we may collect information such as your name, email address, display name, and profile photo.
Verification Information. If you choose to go through the verification process, we may ask for
information that can be used to verify your identity, such as scans of your government-issued photo identification. When your government-issued photo identification information is no longer necessary to verify your identity, we delete the scans (front and back). We retain only an anonymized hash corresponding to the information the identification document contains, in order to prevent identity theft and impostor accounts. No personally identifiable information from your identification document can be retrieved from the stored hash. In addition to the identification information, we ask for you to take a selfie. We retain the selfie to prevent the creation of
impostor accounts, but we store them securely, in encrypted form.

We receive information about the device and software you use to access our Services, including IP address (from which location may be inferred), device type, web browser type, operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, member agents, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens.

Services, such as the posts or other content you view, the searches you conduct, the people you

Your Contacts. If you permit us to access the address book on your device or give us permission
to import your contacts from an email account associated with your account, we may access and
store names and contact information from your address book to help you follow your contacts,
and your contacts to follow you.
Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We may collect information using

How We Share the Information We Collect
Vendors and Service Providers. We may share any information we receive with vendors and
service providers retained in connection with the provision of our Services.
Content you Share. Our Services are social services that allow you to find, enjoy, and share
content. Your display name, display name, profile photo, about me section, and contacts (i.e.,
members you are following) will always be viewable and/or searchable by other Members. The
content you post to our Services will be displayed and viewable by other Members by default.

Although this content is public by default, in the “Your Choices” section below, we describe the
account settings and controls you can use to limit the sharing of certain information. We are not
responsible for other Members’ use of available information, so you should carefully consider
whether and what to post and how you identify yourself on our Services.

Marketing. We do not and will never rent, sell, or share information about you with
non-affiliated third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless we have your affirmative
express consent.

As Required By Law and Similar Disclosures. We may access, preserve, and disclose your
information if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: (a) comply with law.

Your Choices
Sharing Preferences. We provide you with settings to allow you to set your sharing preferences
for content you post to our Services. Certain information, such as your display name, may always
be publicly available to others, and other information is made publicly available to others by
default. To change whether certain information is publicly viewable, you can adjust the settings
in your account.
Marketing Communications. We send you marketing communications consistent with your
choices. You can unsubscribe from our promotional emails by adjusting your account settings or
via the link provided in the emails. Even if you opt-out of receiving promotional messages from
us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us.
Notifications. You can opt-out of receiving notifications for posts, votes, echoes, comments,
and followers by adjusting your profile and/or operating system (i.e., iOS or Android) settings.

Third Parties
Our Services may contain links to other websites, products, or services that we do not own or
operate. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties. Please be aware
that this Privacy Policy does not apply to your activities on these third-party services or any
information you disclose to these third parties. We encourage you to read their privacy policies
before providing any information to them.

For example, any information you share with Google as a consequence of sharing or interacting
with YouTube content on TruTravel Club is governed by Google’s privacy policy. Google now provides
users some control over the collection of data by its users and API Clients like TruTravel; follow this
link for more information on revoking an API client’s access to your data. Exercising such
control may require having a Google account, which itself may be a privacy concern for some of
our members.

A similar disclaimer applies to Rumble, an emerging competitor of Google-YouTube. When in doubt, consult the privacy policy of the entity responsible for facilitating the display of content on our Services, before choosing to interact with it, so you can make an informed decision about your privacy.)

Security
We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by using physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, as our Services are hosted electronically, we can make no absolute guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.

Children
We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use personal information from children under 13 years of age, and no part of our Services is directed to children. If you learn that a child has provided us with personal information in violation of this Privacy Policy, then you may alert us at info@trutravel.club.

Our Services are hosted in the United States and intended for visitors located within the United States. If you choose to use our Services from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you are transferring your personal information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing. By providing any information, including personal information, on or to our Services, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
