Privacy Policy

We believe you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it, and that you should have meaningful control over both. We want to empower you to make the best decisions about the information that you share with us. That’s the basic purpose of TripDaw Privacy Policy.

You should read this policy in full, but here are a few key things we hope you take away from it:

  1. TripDaw is public viewable and searchable by anyone around the world. We give you non-public ways to communicate on TripDaw too, through protected post and Direct Messages. But we don't recommended to you use TripDaw under a pseudonym. Use your real name.
  2. When you use TripDaw, even if you’re just looking at Blogs, we receive some personal information from you like the type of device you’re using and your IP address. You can choose to share additional information with us like your email address, phone number, address, and a public profile. We use this information for things like keeping your account secure and showing you more relevant Posts, people to follow, events, and ads.
  3. We give you control through your settings to limit the data we collect from you and how we use it, and to control things like account security, marketing preferences, apps that can access your account. You can also download information you have shared on TripDaw.
  4. In addition to information you share with us, we use your Posts, Blogs, Forums, content you’ve read, Liked, or Repost, and other information to determine what topics you’re interested in, your age, the languages you speak, and other signals to show you more relevant content. We give you transparency into that information, and you can modify or correct it at any time.
  5. If you have questions about this policy, how we collect or process your personal data, or anything else related to our privacy practices, we want to hear from you. You can contact us at any time. Thanks

We require certain information to provide our services to you. For example, you must have an account in order to upload or share content on TripDaw. When you choose to share the information below with us, we collect and use it to operate our services.

1.1 Basic Account Information

You don’t have to create an account to use some of our service features, such as Blogs and Forum. If you do choose to create an account, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. On TripDaw this includes a display name (for example, “Arif Hossain”), a username (for example, @ArifHossain), a password, and an email address or phone number. Your display name and username are always public.

1.2 Public Information

Most activity on TripDaw is public, including your profile information, your time zone and language, when you created your account, and your Posts and certain information about your Posts like the date, time, and application and version of TripDaw you Posted from.

You also may choose to publish your location in your Posts or your TripDaw profile. The lists you create, people you follow and who follow you, and Posts you Like or Comments are also public. If you like, Comment, reply, or otherwise publicly engage with an ad on our services, that advertiser might thereby learn information about you associated with the ad with which you engaged such as characteristics of the audience the ad was intended to reach.

You are responsible for your Posts, Blogs, Forums and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information. If you update your public information on TripDaw, such as by deleting a TripDaw or deactivating your account, we will reflect your updated content on TripDaw.com.

1.3 Contact Information

We use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to authenticate your account and keep it - and our services - secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse. We also use contact information to enable certain account features (for example, for login verification or TripDaw via SMS), and to send you information about our services, and to personalize our services, including ads.

If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages from TripDaw to that number as your country’s laws allow. tripDaw also uses your contact information to market to you as your country’s laws allow, and to help others find your account if your settings permit, including through third-party services and client applications. You can use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from TripDaw. You can also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or here.

You can sign up for TripDaw with an account from another service like Twitter, Google, or Facebook, or connect your Periscope account to these other services. If you do, we will use information from that service, including your email address, friends, or contacts list, to recommend other accounts or content to you or to recommend your account or content to others. You can control whether your TripDaw account is discoverable by email through your TripDaw settings.

If you email us, we will keep the content of your message, your email address, and your contact information to respond to your request.

1.4 Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications

We provide certain features that let you communicate more privately or control who sees your content. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have non-public conversations on TripDaw, protect your Posts.

When you communicate with others by sending or receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications and information related to them. This includes link scanning for malicious content, detection of spam, abuse and prohibited images, and use of reported issues. We also use information about whom you have communicated with and when (but not the content of those communications) to better understand the use of our services, to protect the safety and integrity of our platform, and to show more relevant content. We share the content of your Direct Messages with the people you’ve sent them to; we do not use them to serve you ads.

Note that if you interact in a way that would ordinarily be public with TripDaw content shared with you via Direct Message, for instance by liking a Post, those interactions will be public. When you use features like Direct Messages to communicate, remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on TripDaw - even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account - which they may duplicate, store, or re-share.
