Wapo” operates this web-site wapoapp.com and several apps including Wapo for iPhone, Wapo for Android, and Wapa for iPhone. It is Wapo's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website or apps.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Wapo collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wapo’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wapo’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Wapo may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information, including Location Data

Visitors to Wapo’s apps choose to interact with Wapo in ways that require Wapo to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wapo gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our location based dating apps to allow their device to pass to us their approximate location, upload some photos, and we give users who sign up to our premium service the opportunity to give us their email address. In each case, Wapo collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wapo. Wapo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.

Disabling Gathering of Location Data

All users of Wapo's apps have the ability to disable the gathering of location data. iOS and Android users can disable location services within the operating system settings.

Promotional use of photos

Wapo may use photos that you have uploaded to your profile publicly in app store screenshots. If you do not wish for your photo to be used in this way, then you can email us in advance or after the fact. If your photo is already shown in a screenshot in the app store we will delete it however it may take us some time due to delays at Apple and Google which are out of our control.

Aggregated Statistics

Wapo may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and apps. For instance, Wapo may monitor the most popular times of day on the Wapo dating app then display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Wapo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wapo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wapo’s behalf or to provide services available on Wapo’s websites and apps, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wapo’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wapo will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wapo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wapo believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wapo, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Wapo website or app and have supplied your email address, Wapo may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wapo and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs, twitter accounts, and facebook to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wapo takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
