Why We Process Your Personal Information
Galileyo provides a free speech platform that facilitates information sharing in a secure environment. Offering these services and experiences requires Galileyo to process personal information you provide. For example, Galileyo receives and processes your personal information when you create a user account, link your account with a third-party website, or post materials using the Service. If you do not agree to the terms of this policy, please do not use the Service.
Information We Process to Provide the Service
Personal information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. In some instances, information is collected in the aggregate that does not relate to any particular user or household ("Aggregate Data”), such as the number of App users per day. In other instances, personal information can be sufficiently anonymized that it cannot reasonably identify, relate to, describe, be capable of being associated with, or be linked, directly or indirectly, to a particular user (“Anonymous Data”).
Creating a Galileyo account requires your basic contact information, including your phone number, email address, and confirmation of your location. We may also require you to select a password for authentication and provide a username that will be visible to other users when you post to public portions of the Service. We receive and store this information and use it to create a user profile and provide you with access to the Service. We may use your email address to contact you with information relating to the Service or to provide support. We may also require your contact and payment information if you are entitled to receive payment based on your use of the Service or if you have accepted an obligation to provide payment. When you post or upload materials to the Service, including without limitation text, audio, images, or other media (collectively “User Content”), those materials are personal information.
If you make a purchase through our Service, your payment-related information, such as your credit and debit card or automated clearing house (ACH) information, is collected and stored by our third-party payment processor on our behalf.
When you use the Service, Galileyo may collect additional personal information, including more detailed contact information you provide, your location, demographics, and your use of the Service. We may also collect and record certain information such as your unique device ID, hardware type, media access control (“MAC”) address, international mobile equipment identity (“IMEI”), the version of your operating system (“OS”), and your location (based on your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address). This information is useful to us for troubleshooting and helps us understand usage trends and for providing you with the correct version of the application.
If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, if you contact us for customer support, we may receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of any message or attachments you may send to us, and any other information you choose to provide.
We automatically receive information about your interactions with our Service, such as the posts or other content you view, the searches you conduct, the people you follow, and the dates and times of your visits.
We may collect information using cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies. Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to our Service.
Please review your web browser’s “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from our Service, you may not be able to utilize the features of our Service to their fullest potential.
Galileyo may periodically conduct surveys or request your opinion relating to certain businesses or other investment-related matters and we may process your responses to render them Anonymous Data or only record such information as Aggregate Data.
