Privacy Policy

When you use our services, you make sure you trust us with your information. We understand that this is a big responsibility for us and one of the most important roles and hard work to protect your information and keep you in control.

Introduction

This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, export, and delete your information.

We build a range of services that help millions of people daily to explore and interact with the world in new ways. Our services include:

Joomri apps, sites, and devices, like Search, Products that are integrated into third-party apps and sites, like ads. You can use our services in a variety of ways to manage your privacy. For example, you can sign up for a Joomri Account if you want to create and manage content like joomri mails and photos, or see more relevant search results. And you can use many Joomri services when you’re signed out or without creating an account at all, like searching on Joomri. And across our services, you can adjust your privacy settings to control what we collect and how your information is used.

Information collects

We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services

We collect information to provide better services to all our users — from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online you might like. The information Joomri collects, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services and how you manage your privacy controls.

We provide a broad range of services that are subject to these terms, including:

When you’re not signed in to a Joomri Account, we store the information we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application, or device you’re using. This helps us do things like maintain your language preferences across browsing sessions.

We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services

When you create a Joomri Account, you provide us with personal information that includes your name and a password. You can also choose to add a phone number or payment information to your account. Even if you aren’t signed in to a Joomri Account, you might choose to provide us with information — like an email address to receive updates about our services.

We also collect the content you create, upload, or receive from others when using our services. This includes things like mail you write and receive, photos and videos you save, docs and spreadsheets you create.

Information we collect as you use our services

We collect information about the apps, browsers, and devices you use to access Joomri services, which helps us provide features like automatic product updates and dimming your screen if your battery runs low.

The information we collect includes unique identifiers, browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system, mobile network information including carrier name and phone number, and application version number. We also collect information about the interaction of your apps, browsers, and devices with our services, including IP address, crash reports, system activity, and the date, time, and referrer URL of your request.

We collect this information when a Joomri service on your device contacts our servers —If you’re using an Android device with Joomri apps, your device periodically contacts Joomri servers to provide information about your device and connection to our services. This information includes things like your device type, carrier name, crash reports, and which apps you've installed.

Why Joomri collects data

We use data to build better services

We use the information we collect from all our services for the following purposes:

Provide our services

We use your information to deliver our services, like processing the terms you search for in order to return results or helping you share content by suggesting recipients from your contacts.

Maintain & improve our services

We also use your information to ensure our services are working as intended, such as tracking outages or troubleshooting issues that you report to us. And we use your information to make improvements to our services — for example, understanding which search terms are most frequently misspelled helps us improve spell-check features used across our services.

Develop new services

We use the information we collect in existing services to help us develop new ones.

Provide personalized services, including content and ads

We use the information we collect to customize our services for you, including providing recommendations, personalized content, and customized search results. For example, Security Checkup provides security tips adapted to how you use Joomri products.

Depending on your settings, we may also show you personalized ads based on your interests. For example, if you search for “mountain bikes,” you may see an ad for sports equipment when you’re browsing a site that shows ads served by Joomri. You can control what information we use to show you ads by visiting your ad settings.

We don’t show you personalized ads based on sensitive categories, such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health. We don’t share information that personally identifies you with advertisers, such as your name or email, unless you ask us to.

Your Privacy Controls

You have choices regarding the information we collect and how it's used

This section describes key controls for managing your privacy across our services. You can also visit the Privacy Checkup, which provides an opportunity to review and adjust important privacy settings. In addition to these tools, we also offer specific privacy settings in our products — you can learn more in our Product Privacy Guide.

Managing, reviewing, and updating your information

When you’re signed in, you can always review and update information by visiting the services you use.

Sharing Your Information

When you share your information

Many of our services let you share information with other people, and you have control over how you share. Remember, when you share information publicly, your content may become accessible through search engines, including Joomri Search.

When you’re signed in and interact with some Joomri services, like leaving comments on a YouTube video, your name and photo appear next to your activity. We may also display this information in ads depending on your Shared endorsements setting.

When Joomri shares your information

We do not share your personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of Joomri except in the following cases:

With your consent

We’ll share personal information outside of Joomri when we have your consent. For example, if you use Joomri Home to make a reservation through a booking service, we’ll get your permission before sharing your name or phone number with the restaurant. We’ll ask for your explicit consent to share any sensitive personal information.

Receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request

Restrict your ability to delete or edit your information or your privacy settings

For external processing

For example, we use service providers to help us with customer support.

Keeping Your Information Secure

We build security into our services to protect your information

All Joomri products are built with strong security features that continuously protect your information. The insights we gain from maintaining our services help us detect and automatically block security threats from ever reaching you. And if we do detect something risky that we think you should know about, we’ll notify you and help guide you through steps to stay better protected.

We work hard to protect you and Joomri from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, including:

We use encryption to keep your data private while in transit

We also comply with certain legal frameworks relating to the transfer of data.

When we receive formal written complaints, we respond by contacting the person who made the complaint. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of your data that we cannot resolve with you directly.
