Personal Information includes email address, as well as any personally identifiable information that you provide during your video or chat sessions via the Service (e.g, images and identifications of yourself). Your user profile can also allow you to upload a profile picture, bio, location and birthday (not including the year of birth). Your user settings and account preferences are also saved.
  • Age Verification:Images of identification documents uploaded via the age verification form will be stored for up to 7 days. After such time, it will be permanently deleted. The information is encrypted and not publically accessible. It is viewable by a privilaged user or administrator for the purposes of confirming a user's age and identity.
  • Room Information:In your room settings you have the ability to upload a room display picture and add a description. The name of your chat room will also equal your chosen username.
  • Contact forms:By using the contact form, you can provide a name and an email address, as well as the contents of the message you choose to send.
  • Video broadcasts:Video and chat may be collected and stored on the JumpInChat Platform. Video or still images taken from video broadcasts may be used to display public broadcast sessions on a public directory or room list. Video or still images and chat logs may be collected when your session or account has been reported by another user, where it will be stored until it is no longer useful for administration purposes or expires after no more than 7 days, which ever happens first. Video and chat sessions may be broadcast live, or recorded and re-broadcast, through third party websites. We recommend that you exercise caution in disclosing any information, personal or otherwise, during a video or chat session. Such information will be broadcast along with the relevant video or chat session to other users and third parties viewing such videos or chat sessions through the JumpInChat Platform and third party websites.
  • User reports:Reporting another user will involve uploading of the current chat log, from the perspective of the user sending the report (reporter) as well as any private message conversations with the user being reported (target). Additionally, a screenshot of the target's webcam will be uploaded.
    This information is used to determine the validity of the report, as well as to assist in determining what action to take. Screenshots will expire and be deleted after a period not exceeding 7 days.

Phishing

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to JumpInChat. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.

Changing or Deleting Your Information

All JumpInChat Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by visiting the account settings and profile settings features on the JumpInChat Platform. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us at privacy@jumpin.chat with a request that we delete your Personal Information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

Security

JumpInChat is very concerned with safeguarding your information. The security of your personal information is important to us. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or social security number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In some cases, we also encrypt sensitive information where it is stored on our systems.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this JumpInChat Platform in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Our Policy Toward Children

The JumpInChat Platform is not directed to children under 16. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at privacy@jumpin.chat. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
