Privacy Policies


Privacy and data protection are important to the Pickdin community.  Transparency is, too. We’ve done our best to cut through the legal jargon and explain in simple terms what information we collect about you, what we use it for, and the few situations in which we share it with others.

Please read this privacy policy carefully. It applies to all interactions you have with Pickdin’s products and services.

The Information We Collect

Pickdin is responsible for the data you provide through our products and services. When you create an account with Pickdin, you give us your full name and email address, and create a username and password. If you want, you can give us a pseudonym instead of your legal name.

If you don’t feel like creating an account from scratch, you may be able to sign in through an account you already have with another service, such as Facebook and Google.

Your user profile helps you customize your account and connect with other Pickdin users. Your profile automatically includes your name and username. You can also add a profile picture and whatever else you’d like in the “Bio” field.

To help you connect with other Pickdin users and to personalize your Pickdin experience, we may ask for additional information, including your contacts or location.

We receive some other information automatically when you use Pickdin. This includes data about your device, software, operating system, operating system-provided device IDs, your IP address and the date and time of each request you make to Pickdin.

So that we can make your Pickdin experience better, we collect information about how you view and interact with content through Pickdin and on third-party sites with Pickdin widgets (coming soon).

How We Use and Disclose Your Information

A big part of Pickdin is sharing content you find interesting. That’s why your Pickdin profile, the people and sources you follow or that follow you, the comments you post and the content you read are all public.

Aside from that, we use your information to keep Pickdin running, better understand how you use our service, customize your experience (including the content, marketing materials, and advertisements you see), prevent abuse and improve Pickdin. Pickdin may also work with advertising partners to serve you third-party advertisements, including interest-based advertisements, on Pickdin and on other services.

We share your personally identifiable information only under these circumstances:

  • With your consent, after letting you know what information will be shared, and with whom.
  • If we believe it’s reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal process.If we’re going to release your information, our policy is to provide you with reasonable advance notice under the circumstances. We may disclose your information without giving you prior notice if we believe it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person. Nothing in this privacy policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defences you might have to efforts by third parties to compel disclosure of your information, including legal orders from the government.
  • To third parties helping us offer and improve our service, such as those providing Pickdin certain technical tools and analytics services (including marketing partners) that help us understand how people use Pickdin so we can make it better. We require those companies to observe the limitations in this privacy policy.
  • If we sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our assets, including the information identified in this privacy policy, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets in the event of a bankruptcy. We may also share non-personally identifiable, non-aggregate information (for example, anonymized Advertising IDs) with companies that help us improve our products and services, including advertising (such as research companies and analytics providers). As with your personally identifiable information, we require that such companies observe the limitations in this privacy policy.

We may disclose aggregate information about how our users use Pickdin in a manner that doesn’t identify you individually.

Web Storage and Tracking Policy

Cookies and HTML5 local storage are ways to keep information about your use of Internet services on your own mobile device or computer.

We use cookies and HTML5 local storage to help us create your session, know when you’re logged in and help us remember certain information about how you interact with Pickdin.

If you’d rather not use cookies or HTML5 local storage, most browsers give you the option to turn them off, or require your approval before using them to keep information. If you choose not to keep information in cookies or HTML5 local storage, though, portions of Pickdin may not work as intended.

Pickdin may also use web beacons in advertisements to allow Pickdin and its advertising partners to see how users view and engage with advertisements. Depending on your advertising preferences set in your operating system, Pickdin may share your Advertising ID with advertising partners in a de-identified fashion that is not tied to your name or email address.

Some publishers or other third-party services that we partner with may use cookies, web beacons or other technologies to keep track of your Internet activity. Please note that this privacy policy explains Pickdin’s policies only, and doesn’t cover the practices of other services.

Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don’t want your Internet browsing activity to be tracked. The Internet community hasn’t reached a consensus on how to best honor these signals, so we don’t respond to Do-Not-Track requests at this time.

Your Rights

Pickdin supports data privacy rights and is happy to provide our users with the following options:

  • Change or Correct Data: You can edit some of your personal data through your account, or, if you need help, you can contact Pickdin Support and we may be able to change or correct your data in certain cases, particularly if it’s inaccurate or out of date.
  • Erase or Delete Data: You can erase your personal data by deleting your account. Alternatively, you can ask us to erase all or some of your personal data.
  • Object to or Restrict Use of Data: You can ask us to stop using all or some of your personal data (e.g., if we have no legal right to use it) or limit our use of it (e.g., if your personal data is inaccurate).
  • Access or Copy Data: You can ask us for a copy of your personal data.

You can learn more about these options, or submit a request, by contacting admin@pickdin.com through the Help Center. For security, privacy, or operational reasons, Pickdin may only respond to valid requests when required by law or regulation.

Data Retention and Deletion

We store your personal data as long as your account exists or as necessary to provide our services to you. This includes data you or others provide to us and data generated from your use of our services. If you’d like to delete your account, you can do so in the Pickdin application under Settings (gear icon) in the Edit Profile detailed menu. If you delete your account, your user profile will no longer be visible on our service, though we may still keep some log information in non-personally identifiable form.

As Pickdin continues to develop, we may decide to revise this privacy policy from time to time. The most current version will govern our use of your information and will always be at https://www.pickdin.com , and older versions are available upon request. If we make changes that we think will substantially alter your rights, we will notify you by posting a notice on our website. You agree to accept any changes or revisions to this privacy policy by continuing to use Pickdin.
