This Policy describes the information that we gather from you on the 1BAOP Service, how we use and disclose such information, and the steps we take to protect such information. By using the1BAOP Service, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Policy.
The information we collect on the 1BOAP Service:
User-provided Information. When you use the 1BAOP Service, you may provide and we may collect what is generally called "personally identifiable" information, or
"personal information," which is information that specifically identifies an individual. Examples of personal information include your name, email address,
mailing address, mobile phone number, and credit card or other billing information. Personal information also includes other information, such as date of
birth, geographic area, or preferences, when such information is linked to information that identifies a specific individual. You may provide us with personal
information in various ways on the 1BAOP Service. For example, you provide us with personal information when you register for an account, use the 1BAOP Service,
post User Content, make a purchase or donation on the 1BAOP Service, interact with other users of the 1BAOP Service through any communication features we have
now or may implement, or otherwise contact PeaceJam. Information you provide on other PeaceJam websites or through other PeaceJam services may also be used on
the 1BAOP Service to facilitate your registration for and access to the 1BAOP Service.
"Cookies" Information. When you use the 1BAOP Service, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric
characters – to your device. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser.
A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the 1BAOP Service. Please
review your web browser "Help" file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not
to accept, cookies from the 1BAOP Service, you may not be able to utilize the features of the 1BAOP Service to their fullest potential.
"Automatically Collected" Information. When you use the 1BAOP Service, we may automatically record certain information from your
device by using various types of technology, including "clear gifs" or "web beacons." This "automatically collected" information
may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser type, device type, the web pages or sites that you visit
just before or just after you use the 1BAOP Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the 1BAOP
Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the 1BAOP Service. We also may use these technologies to collect
information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This
information is gathered from all users.
Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons. We may also implement third-party content or advertising on the 1BAOP Service that
may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third-party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser
in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the 1BAOP Service. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons
(such as Facebook "like" or "share" buttons) that may allow third parties to collect information about you through such
third parties’ browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through web beacons and buttons
is collected directly by these third parties, and PeaceJam does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by
a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies. Some browsers
incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want
to be tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to browser DNT signals, we do not currently respond

and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each, an "Integrated Service"), such as through the use of your
Facebook credentials, or otherwise have the option to authorize an Integrated Service to provide personal information or other information
to us. By authorizing us to connect with an Integrated Service, you authorize us to access and store your name, email address(es), date of
birth, gender, current city, profile picture URL, and other information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, and to use and
disclose it in accordance with this Policy. You should check your privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand and change the
before using their services and connecting to the 1BAOP Service.

We may obtain information, including personal information, from sources other than the 1BAOP Service, including from other PeaceJam websites and associated services, any partners, advertisers, or Integrated Services. If we combine or associate information from other sources with personal information that we collect through the 1BAOP Service, we will treat the combined information as personal information in accordance with this Policy for any use in relation to the 1BAOP Service.

The 1BAOP Service may contain features or links to other websites and services provided by third parties. Any information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to the operators of such services and is subject to those operators’ policies, if any, governing privacy and security, even if accessed through the 1BAOP Service.

We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to PeaceJam. Our 1BAOP Service is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 on the 1BAOP Service without obtaining parental consent. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the 1BAOP Service at any time or in any manner. If we learn that personally identifiable information has been collected on the 1BAOP Service from persons under 13 years of age and without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 13 years of age has obtained an account on the 1BAOP Service, then you may alert us at email@example.com and request that we delete that child’s personally identifiable information from our systems.
We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards in an effort to protect the integrity and security of the personal information that we collect and maintain. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the 1BAOP Service or other PeaceJam websites, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to certain personal information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on the 1BAOP Service. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the 1BAOP Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the 1BAOP Service. We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the 1BAOP Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
The 1BAOP Service is hosted in the United States. If you choose to use the 1BAOP Service 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. Also, we may transfer your data from the U.S. to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the 1BAOP Service or other PeaceJam websites and services.
