Privacy Policy






We at Rhymeo know you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By using or accessing the Service in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the ways listed below. Rhymeo collects information about you when you install our mobile application and through other interactions and communications you have with us.



This Privacy Policy applies to the Rhymeo app, websites, and products and services available on or at the websites (taken together, the “Service”). The Service is owned and operated by Rhymeo LLC, and this Privacy Policy applies to information collected and used by Rhymeo LLC. Remember that your use of the Service is at all times subject to the Terms of Service, which incorporates this Privacy Policy. Any terms we use in this Privacy Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service: https://www.rhymeo.co/tos.html.



We may transfer the information described in this Privacy Policy to, and process and store it in, the United States. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We are constantly trying to improve the Service, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well. We will alert you to changes by sending you an in-app message, posting a notice on relevant social media platforms, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you've opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven't provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Service, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Service after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes. Use of information we collect is subject to the Privacy Policy that is in effect at the time the information is collected.





SCOPE AND APPLICATION



This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) applies to persons anywhere in the world who use the Service, to collect data or use our customer support service.



We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Service or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at justin@rhymeo.co.





COLLECTION OF INFORMATION



Rhymeo is an app to create freestyle raps. While enabling users to create this content, we use the following:



What we collect and why we collect it:



User device ID and IP address


To confirm that new users are not creating several accounts from the same IP address.



Device information


To better understand the user’s context for app enhancements and bug reporting, as well as to gather data that can be used for Quality Assurance.



Language


To be able to present the user with text within the app in a language that the user understands.



Performance metrics for APIs


To ensure that all the APIs used by the app are working well in order to provide the best possible user-experience.



Battery status


To understand the impact of our app on the user’s battery.



WiFi and Cellular


To better understand the quality of the signal on the user’s device and thereby help our partners improve network coverage, as well as reactively providing a better service for users based on signal quality.



Overall, we will be logging the data mentioned above in order to better serve our users and prevent users from abusing our Services or other users. This data will be sent to Rhymeo via the third party analytics services Firebase, Datamuse, Rhymebrain, Flickr, Google Speech-to-Text SDK, and Apple Siri SDK. Some of the information mentioned above may also be shared with our partners.



The photographs shown on Rhymeo might be copyrighted by their respective owners. Rhymeo does not host photos or store any user identifiable data related to photos on its servers. The Rhymeo application utilizes a linking technology to show the images stored on Flickr’s servers and reflects whatever Flickr provides through its sharing API. Rhymeo follows the guidelines and terms of use of the Flickr API and provides link backs to the photograph’s original Flickr page so there is no misunderstanding about the image’s author, copyright or source.



Because the photos are not hosted on Rhymeo and are instead shown to the end user directly from Flickr using their sharing API, please contact Flickr directly for any concerns that you might have about how Flickr makes your photos available through their API. If you have any questions or concerns about your photo being shown on the Rhymeo application, please follow this link for opt-out instructions to the Flickr API: https://www.flickr.com/help/website/#180.



Once you opt out on Flickr your photos will no longer be displayed through the Rhymeo application. Please wait up to 24 hours for this change to take place. Rhymeo respects your privacy and only shows public Flickr photos compliant with the Creative Commons Licenses and Flickr’s privacy options.



Rhymeo is not certified or endorsed by Flickr or Yahoo.



If you want to learn more about the information we collect, here are a few more details:





INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US



We collect freestyle raps that you create, as well as identifying information you provide and any content you share through Rhymeo. We collect information when you create or modify your account, create a freestyle rap, contact customer support, post your freestyle rap, share your freestyle rap, or otherwise communicate with us and other users. This information may include: name, social media account, email address, phone number, and other information you choose to provide.





INFORMATION WE COLLECT THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE



When you use the Service, we collect information about you in the general categories below:



Contact Information


If you permit the Service to access the address book on your device through the permission system used by your mobile platform, we may access and store names and contact information from your address book for sharing of freestyle raps.



Power Information


If you permit the Service to access your power information on your device through the permission system used by your mobile platform, we may access and store your power levels and charging status to understand the environment our product operates in.



Usage and Preference Information (Do Not Track Policy)


We collect information about how you and site visitors interact with the Service, preferences expressed, and settings chosen. In some cases we do this through the use of cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers. Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may also collect information about your online activity after you leave the Service. Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Service and customize your online experience, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy. Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. The Service does not support “Do Not Track” requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Service and after you leave the Service.



Device Information


We may collect information about your mobile device, including, for example, the hardware model, operating system and version, software and file names and versions, preferred language, unique device identifier, advertising identifiers, serial number, device motion information, and mobile network information.



Log Information


When you interact with the Service, we collect server logs, which may include information like device IP address, access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, and app crashes and other system activity.





INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES



If you provide your third-party account credentials to us or otherwise sign in to the Service through a third party site or service (e.g., Facebook, Google, and Twitter), you understand some content and/or information in those accounts (”Third Party Account Information”) may be transmitted into your Rhymeo account if you authorize such transmissions, and that Third Party Account Information transmitted to the Service is covered by this Policy. We may combine information from this app or site with information we have collected from you in your capacity as a user of the Service.



We use analytics to help analyze how our users use the Service. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information such as how often our users visit the Service, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Service. We may use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve our Service or to send you promotional messages about our Service. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Service, but not your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with any personally identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Service, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Service is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You may find additional information about Google Analytics at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.



Third parties, including Facebook, may collect or receive information from the Service and other apps, and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted ads. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information for ad targeting.



You can opt out of (i) Google Analytics by using the following add-on https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/, and (ii) Facebook by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.
