Your California Privacy Rights

Effective January 1, 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the “Shine the Light” law) provides that, if an individual who is a California resident has provided his/her personal information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such individual’s personal information to a third party and knows or should have known that such third party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what personal information was shared and with whom the information was shared. A business may comply with this law by: (1) having EITHER a published privacy policy of not sharing a customer’s personal information for third-party direct marketing use unless the customer has first affirmatively opted in to such sharing OR a published privacy policy of not sharing a customer’s personal information for third-party direct marketing use if the customer has opted out to prevent his/her personal information from being shared for third-party direct marketing use; AND (2) notifying the customer of his/her right to opt out and providing a cost-free means for the customer to exercise that right.

California residents may request an information-sharing disclosure from us by emailing your request to hello@bananaapp.com. Please note that, under the law, we are not required to respond to your request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any requests that are not sent to the above-designated email or mailing address.

Information Collection and Use

One of our many goals at Banana is to provide you with the best possible experience on our sites and applications. Through the information that we collect from you, we are able to deliver an awesome one of a kind user experience. Banana collects user submitted information including but not limited to name, email address, and age to authenticate users and to send notifications to those users relating to Banana APp, Banana Services. Banana may also collect other data either directly or via third-party sign-on services (e.g., Facebook Connect), including but not limited to: personal interests, gender, age, education, and occupation, in order to enrich the user experience.

Banana App also logs non-personally-identifiable information such as IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and visitors to the site. This data is used to manage the website, track usage and improve the website services. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users. User IP addresses may be recorded for security and monitoring purposes.

User account information, including pictures and usernames, may also be collected and displayed in order to enrich the user experience and facilitate user interaction in Banana App and in email communications. Email addresses are primarily used for the purpose of sending notifications related to the service. With the exception of notifying friends about content the user has created, a user's email address is not shared or publicly displayed on the Banana App. Users' full names, to the extent collected and stored, are never directly revealed to other users, unless authorized by the user.

We use the email address you provide upon registration to communicate with you regarding your account, your purchases and/or other transactions with Banana, changes in our Terms of Service, Terms of Sale, and/or Privacy Policy, and other matters relating to your account with Banana App. It also enables us to send you announcement emails about our new content, features, services, products, promotions, etc. You may opt out of receiving announcement emails from us at any time by following the opt-out link contained in an announcement email you previously received or by logging into the Banana App section where you have an account and changing your email preferences in the account settings.

From time to time, Banana and one or more of its partners may co-sponsor a promotion, sweepstake or contest or may offer a co-branded product or service on the Banana App (each, a "Joint Offering"). Users may be asked to provide personal information such as name, email address, home address, etc. or to answer questions in order to participate in a Joint Offering, which personal information may be shared by Banana with its partners involved in such Joint Offering, and such partners may use the information for its own advertising and marketing purposes. Also, we may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply. All in all, we urge you to think carefully before disclosing any personal information or User Content with Banana that you deem private and to take the necessary measures to keep your information secure.

Service Providers

We rely on certain third-party services for the operation of Banana App, such as credit card payment processing, order processing, fulfillment and shipment, data storage and security, etc. The security of your personal information is important to us. Please keep in mind that, to the extent a third-party service provider needs to access your information in order to perform services to us, we share your information with that provider. However, we do require that any third-party service providers limit their use of your information solely to providing services to us and that they maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your information and not make unauthorized use or disclosure of the information.

For example, if you purchase a product from Banana App online store, we use a third-party vendor to pack and ship your order. Our fulfillment vendor will be given access to your full name and shipping address solely for the purpose of shipping your order. We require our fulfillment vendor not to retain, share, store or use your information for any other purpose.

As another example, we use Apple Inc. to provide billing, subscription management and other payment related services. Banana does not store any payment information in our database. Rather, we rely on your Apple account to store all payment related data. Apple is prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than providing the above-described contracted services.

Children’s Privacy

Banana App and Banana Service are not intended for use by children under the age of 13 without parental supervision. Banana does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Users must be 13 or older to be eligible to register on the Banana App.

We want parents to feel confident about their child’s activity while using our services and have full control over their child’s activity on our sites.
