Information we collect; how we use it
Automatically collected technical information:
Our servers log information about each computer connecting with our site such as IP address, dates and times of each login, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links. We associate this information with comments you post or votes you enter. We also log the metadata associated with any images or videos you upload. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described below, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you; and second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website or use our apps. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
We collect whatever personal data about you that you choose to give us, such as a contact email address and profile information. If you give us an email address, we might use it to send you notifications and occasional promotional messages.
Every image uploaded to ALWAYSFUNNY has its own URL, and no matter what your privacy settings are, every image can always be accessed and viewed by anyone who types in that exact URL. No image uploaded to ALWAYSFUNNY is ever completely hidden from public view. This is mainly to ensure that AlwaysFunny, which allows anonymous postings, will not be used as a platform for illegality.
If you have questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site or your dealings with this web site, you may contact us here.
