WonUpIt Privacy Policy


Updated September 21st, 2018

This Privacy Policy describes WonUpIt's policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information. WonUpIt receives your information when you use our WonUpIt mobile application (“App”) through various APIs, applications, services and third-party Social Media Accounts (as defined below) to engage with other users, including your friends and contacts (“Users”) and participate in promotions, competitions, and games (“Games”), and to interact with products and brands (“Brands”) in connection with their sponsoring of Games (collectively, our “Service”).

By downloading and installing our App, you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Irrespective of which country you reside in or create information from, your information may be used by WonUpIt in the United States or any other country where WonUpIt operates. If you are attempting to access the Service from a physical location within the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please be advised that you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to such transfer.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at hello@wonup.it.

1.         Collection of Information.

  1. Registration Information. When you download the App and create an account (“Account”), we may collect some or all of the following personal information (“Registration Information”):

    1. name username

    2. cell phone number

    3. email address

    4. age

    5. gender

    6. contact list information (names and phone numbers from your phone address book)

    7. Note: Some of this Registration Information, for example, your name and username, may be shown publicly, such as on your profile page when you log in via a Social Media Account.

  2. Additional Information. You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as challenge other WonUpIt users to beat or “one up” your photo/video submission. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional. IF YOU PROVIDE A CELL PHONE NUMBER TO RECEIVE SMS MESSAGES FROM WONUPIT, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO RECEIVING SMS MESSAGES FROM WONUPIT MARKETING WONUPIT, THE SERVICE, AND OUR PRODUCTS AND OTHER SERVICES. Although there is no fee associated with this service, your carrier may charge you for each message you receive in accordance with your calling plan. You agree that we are not responsible in any way for such charges. If you do not wish to continue to receive any messages via your mobile device, you may Opt-Out at any time.  YOU MAY OPT OUT OF RECEIVING MARKETING MESSAGES BY TEXTING “STOP” IN RESPONSE TO A MARKETING SMS MESSAGE. Failure to Opt-Out constitutes your consent to continue to receive these messages until you elect to Opt-Out and your release of us from any carrier charges associated with such messages.

  3. Messages, Posts, Scores and other Public Information. Our Service is primarily designed to help you share information with the world and to engage in Games. Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the photos/videos and messages you send and the metadata provided with photos/videos and messages, but also any comments or information you provide in connection with your photos/videos.  Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public messages are searchable by many search engines. You should be careful about all information that will be made public by WonUpIt, not just your messages. What you say on WonUpIt may be viewed all around the world instantly.

  4. Location Information. If you turn on your location information functions, we may also save exact coordinates to help improve our service. You can control your location information settings in your account settings. We may also use your location information to enable you to interact with Brands and other users. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INFORMATION DISCLOSED IN ANY OF YOUR PHOTOS/VIDEOS, INCLUDING ANY LOCATION INFORMATION OR DISCLOSURE OF ANY PERSON IN ATTENDANCE AT SUCH LOCATION.

  5. Log Data. Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Service. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with our App and advertisements, may also be included in Log Data. We may store your Log Data indefinitely and in perpetuity. You can request us to delete your Log Data if you no longer wish to use the App.

  6. Links. WonUpIt may keep track of how you interact with links in messages across our Service including third party services and clients by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Service, including advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

  7. Cookies. Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Service, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Service such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. WonUpIt may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Service, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Service, and to improve our Service. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

  8. Third Party Service. WonUpIt uses a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Service, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Service.


2.        Use of Information.

  1. WonUpIt may use your Registration Information to help facilitate your transactions and participation in Games, including with Brands, and, in our sole discretion, to resolve disputes between you and other users.  We may also use your Registration Information as necessary to investigate fraud, protect our legal rights, and otherwise provide the Service.

We do not disclose the private elements of your Registration Information, such as passwords, or phone numbers, (“Private information”) except in the limited circumstances described here.

  1. Your Consent. We may share or disclose your Private Information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client or application to access your WonUpIt account.

  3. Law and Harm. We may preserve or disclose any of your information, including your Private Information, if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect WonUpIt's rights or property.

  4. Business Transfers. In the event that WonUpIt is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this privacy policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

  5. Non-Private or Non-Personal Information. We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your public messages or the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did).

  6. Disclosure to Brands.  We may share certain portions of your Registration Information with Brands for marketing purposes, specifically, your name and email address, along with information that we have collected about your interests and preferences based on the Game in which you choose to participate. You may opt out of receiving marketing messages from Brands by using the opt-out mechanisms and links provided by each Brand.


4.        Modifying Your Private Information.

  1. If you are a registered user of our Service, we provide you with tools to access or modify the Private Information you provided to us and associated with your account.

  2. You can also permanently delete your WonUpIt account. When your account is deactivated, it is not viewable on www.wonup.it or in the App.  For up to 30 days it is still possible to restore your account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated. After 30 days, we begin the process of deleting your account from our systems, which can take up to a week, or more in certain circumstances.


5.        Our Policy Towards Children.

Our Service is not directed to people under 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at hello@wonup.it.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account within a reasonable time.

By continuing to access or use the Service after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

WonUpIt takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect your information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, or disclosure.  HOWEVER, WonUpIt expressly disclaimS any representation or warranty, whether express or implied, with respect to ensuring, guaranteeing or otherwise offering any definitive promise of security in connection with your Information.



8.        Third Party Accounts.

We only use the APIs, OAuth Tokens, Widgets, or other means provided by the applicable Third Party Account to integrate your Third Party Account with our App.  As such, we only receive the limited information that each Third Party Account permits to be transferred.
