WebCusso Privacy Policy

    WebCusso ("we," "us," or "our") respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and store your information when you use the WebCusso platform ("Platform").

1. Information We Collect:

We follow a principle of minimal data collection. We only collect information that is essential for the core functionalities of the Platform. Here's a breakdown of the information we collect:

  • Account Information: When you create an account, we collect your username, email address, and any other information you choose to provide in your profile.

  • Usage Data: We collect information about your actions directly related to using the Platform. This includes:

    • URLs of webpages where you interact with comments through the WebCusso extension. This data is only collected when you actively engage with comments, such as posting, replying, upvoting, downvoting, or reporting spam.

    • We do not record your general browsing activities outside of these specific interactions.

  • Google Login Information: If you use Google Login to create an account, we collect your name and email address from Google, subject to Google's own privacy practices (see Link to Google Privacy Policy).

2. How We Use Your Information

The information we collect is used solely to provide and improve the Platform's functionalities:

  • Account Management: We use your account information to create and manage your account, including profile settings and login credentials.

  • Comment Functionality: The URLs of webpages associated with your comments allow us to display relevant comments and discussions within the Platform. This ensures comments are threaded correctly and you can follow the conversation flow.

  • Platform Improvements: We may analyze usage data (including URLs associated with comments) to understand how users interact with the Platform and identify areas for improvement. This helps us personalize your experience and enhance the overall functionality.

3. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We currently do not utilize cookies or other tracking technologies beyond what's essential for basic platform functionality. However, this may change in the future. If we implement cookies or similar technologies, we will update this Privacy Policy and obtain your consent before using them.

4. Third-Party Services

We may use third-party services like Google Login for account creation. These services have their own privacy policies, and we encourage you to review them to understand how they collect and use your information.

5. Data Retention

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services. We may also retain your information for an additional period of time in accordance with our legal obligations or to resolve disputes.

6. Your Choices

You can access and update your account information at any time by logging into your account and going to your profile settings.

7. Children's Privacy

The Platform is not intended for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information from our database.

8. International Transfers

Your information may be transferred to and processed in countries outside of your country of residence. These countries may have different data protection laws than your country of residence. By using the Platform, you consent to the transfer of your information to these countries.

9. Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no internet transmission or electronic storage is completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your information.
