Privacy Policy

Since Juji, Inc. ("Juji") aims at offering data-driven people analytics, we care deeply about how data is correctly collected, used, and shared. This privacy policy describes what data is collected and how it is used. Please take time to read over the policy before entering into a legally binding agreement. When you use the Services, you understand and agree to our Privacy Policy, which governs your relationship with us and has the same effect as an agreement in writing. If you do not agree to these and all of these specified in the policy, do not use the Services.

I. Information we receive and how it is used

Unlike many other websites or applications that heavily rely on advertising activities that monetize the user information collected at the sites/applications, Juji’s goal is to prevent numerous irrelevant information from inundating Juji's users. Instead, Juji allows its users to implicitly or explicitly specify their information preferences, including what kind of content they would like to receive, how much, from whom, when, and how often. Juji will respect user-specified preferences and try its best to help the users receive truly individualized services: obtaining exactly what they want when they want it.

1.1 Your information

Your information is the information that's required when you sign up for the site, and the information you choose to upload, contribute, and/or share.

Registration Information. When you sign up for Juji, you are required to provide a certain set of information, such as your name and email address (in some cases phone number). We may ask you to provide optional information, such as your gender, age group, and location information, so we can provide you with more relevant and individualized services (e.g., age-appropriate, gender-, and/or location relevant content or services).

Information You Choose to Share. Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Juji, such as your individuality portrait, a write-up and/or a photo that you post, a file that you upload, or a comment that you add on your Juji home page. It also includes the information you choose to share when you communicate with us, such as when you contact us using an email address, or when you take an action, such as when you invite a person to join Juji, bookmark a Juji page or a website, or save certain Juji-derived content to your Juji Book. Your name, profile photos, cover photos, location, portrait, and username are treated just like information you choose to make public.

Information others share about you. We receive information about you from others, such as when they upload your contact information, post a photo of you, tag you in a photo or at a location, add comments in your individuality portrait, or add you to a group. When people use Juji, they may store and share information about you and others that they have, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.

1.2 Other information we receive about you

We also receive other types of information about you: We receive data about you whenever you use or are running Juji, such as when you look at another person's individuality portrait, send or receive a message, search for a person or a Juji Page, click on, view or otherwise interact with various features of Juji, use a Juji mobile app, or make purchases through Juji. When you post or upload information like text files, photos, or videos on Juji, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.

We receive data from or about the computer, mobile phone, or other devices you use to access Juji or to install Juji apps, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include network and communication information, such as your IP address or mobile phone number, and other information about things like your internet service, operating system, location, the type (including identifiers) of the device or browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of experiences that you might enjoy are nearby, or we could request device information to improve how our apps work on your device.

We receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses Juji Platform or visit a site with a Juji feature (such as a social plugin), sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you're on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to Juji, your User ID.

Sometimes we get data from our affiliates or our business partners, customers, and other third parties that help us (and/or them) deliver engagements, understand online activity, and generally make Juji better. For example, a business partner may tell us information about you (like how you responded to an engagement on Juji or on another site) to measure the effectiveness of, and improve the quality of engagements.

As described in "How we use the information we receive" we also put together data from the information we already have about you and others, so we can offer and suggest a variety of services and features. For example, we may make experience suggestions, pick articles for your liking, or suggest people to engage with. We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you about people or events nearby, or offer deals to you in which you might be interested. We may also put together data about you to serve you opportunities or other content that might be more relevant to you and match your individuality.

When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city). But we only keep it until it is no longer useful to provide you services, like keeping your last GPS coordinates to send you relevant notifications.

We only provide data to our business partners or customers after we have removed your name and any other personally identifiable information from it, or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it no longer personally identifies you.

1.3 Public information

We use the phrase "public information" to refer to the information you choose to make public, and the information that is always publicly available.

1.4 Information you choose to make public

Choosing to make your information public means that anyone, including people off Juji, will be able to see it. It also means that this information:

  • can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, cover photos, individuality portrait, etc.) even off Juji;
  • can show up when someone does a search on Juji or on a public search engine;
  • can be accessible to the Juji-integrated games, applications, and websites you and others use; and
  • will be accessible to anyone who uses our APIs.

1.5 "Always Public" information

The types of information listed below are always publicly available. Such information is treated just like information you decided to make public:

  • Name. This helps others find you. If you are uncomfortable sharing your real name, you can always delete your account.
  • Profile Pictures. These help others recognize you. If you are uncomfortable making any of these photos public, you can always delete them. Unless you delete them, when you add a new profile picture or cover photo, the previous photo will remain public in your profile picture or cover photo album.
  • Username and User ID. These allow you to give out a custom link to your portrait or home page, receive email at your Juji email address, and help make Juji Platform possible.
  • Self-Description.. This helps others recognize you and your brand. If you are uncomfortable making your self description public, you can always revise or delete them. Unless you delete them, the previous description will remain public as part of your profile.

1.6 Usernames and User IDs

Usernames and User IDs are the same thing—a way to identify you on Juji. A User ID is a string of numbers and a username generally is some variation of your name. With your username, you get a custom link (a Juji URL, such as www.juji.io/username) to your timeline that you can give out to people or post on external websites.

If someone has your Username or User ID, they can use it to access information about you through the juji.io website. For example, if someone has your Username, they can type juji.com/username into their browser and see your public information as well as anything else you've let them see. Similarly, someone with your Username or User ID can access information about you through our APIs. Specifically, they can access your public information, along with your self-description, language, and country.

If you do not want your information to be accessible to Platform applications, you can turn off all Platform applications from your Privacy Settings. If you turn off Platform you will no longer be able to use any games or other applications until you turn Platform back on. For more information about the information that apps receive when you visit them, see other websites and applications.

1.7 How we use the information we receive

We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users, business partners, customers who wish to provide opportunities to different people, and the developers that build the games, applications, and websites. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:

  • as part of our efforts to keep Juji products, services and integrations safe and secure;
  • to protect Juji's or others' rights or property;
  • to provide you with location features and services, like telling you when something is going on nearby;
  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of engagements that you and others have, including the delivery of relevant information to you;
  • to make suggestions to you and other users on Juji, such as suggesting that personal experiences that people who are just like you have enjoyed or hated, suggesting that a group of people that you may want to get permission to engage with, or suggesting that certain changes have occurred to the items collected in your Juji Book; and
  • for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.

Granting us permission to use your information not only allows us to provide Juji as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and much more individualized services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways.

While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we do not share information we receive about you with others unless we have:

  • received your permission;
  • given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or
  • removed your name and any other personally identifiable information from it.

Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared.

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.

  • We may enable access to public information that has been shared through our services.
  • We may allow service providers to access information so they can help us provide services.
  • We may suggest that people who know you tag you in your individuality portrait so we can provide you with a comprehensive portrait of you, including how others may perceive you. If this feature is enabled for you, you can control whether we suggest that another user tag you and how many people you may want to obtain such tags from.
  • We may allow you to provide your own impression/opinion about a person or a brand by tagging the individuality portrait of the person or brand. We may aggregate all the impressions received for the person or a brand and share the information with the person/brand without notice to you but without revealing your identity.

1.8 Deleting and deactivating your account

If you want to stop using your account, you can either deactivate or delete it.

Deactivation. Deactivating your account puts your account on hold. Other users will no longer see your Juji pages, but we do not delete any of your information. Deactivating an account is the same as you telling us not to delete any information because you might want to reactivate your account at some point in the future. Please contact us at hello@juji.io to deactivate your account.

Deletion. When you delete your account, it is permanently deleted from Juji. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. You can delete your account by contacting us at hello@juji.io.

Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on Juji aren’t stored in your account, like posting to a Juji page or sending someone a message (where your friend may still have a message you sent, even after you delete your account). That information remains after you delete your account.

II. Sharing and finding you on Juji

2.1 Control each time you post

Whenever you post content (like a write-up, a photo or upload a file), you can select a specific audience, or even customize your audience. To do this, simply click on the audience icon and choose who can see it. You may choose to make something public. Choosing to make something public is exactly what it sounds like. It means that anyone, including people off Juji, will be able to see or access it. You may also customize your audience. You can also use this to hide your story from specific people. If you add a comment on a public Juji page, the owner of the page and everyone else can see your comment no matter what audience you selected.

Always think before you publicize/share your post. Just like anything else you post on the web or send in an email, information you share on Juji can be copied or re-shared by anyone who can see it.

Although you choose with whom you share, there may be ways for others to determine information about you. For example, if you do not want to reveal how others perceive you so no one can see others’ impressions about you on your public page. But if someone posts “you are such an ambitious person!” on your public Juji page, people may determine what you are like. Likewise, if you do not want to share your individuality portrait derived by Juji with anyone, but another user of Juji who has access to your communication content (e.g., your public tweets or blogs), the person may upload the content into Juji for analysis and derive your individuality portrait based on the uploaded content.

Often, you can see the audience someone selected for their post before you post a comment; however, the owner of the post may later change their audience. So, if you comment on a story, and the story’s audience changes, the new audience can see your comment.

2.2 Control over your individuality portrait

Your individuality portrait often contains multiple types of information, including the information that you provide us such as names, location, and self-description, various Juji-derived individuality traits, Juji-derived group portrait of a group of people related to you (e.g., your Twitter followers), and others’ impressions about you (explicitly solicited by Juji from its users or collected from public sources).

You may choose to make the whole or part of your individuality portrait public. Choosing to make something public is exactly what it sounds like. It means that anyone, including people off Juji, will be able to see or access it. You may also customize your audience who can view your individuality portrait.

Whenever you add or upload content for further analysis, you may obtain a new or updated individuality portrait. The audience that you have chosen to see it can also view your updated individuality portraits. At any time, you may choose to change the audience setting. Similarly, if you choose to hide your gender, it only hides it on your public Juji page. This is because we, just like the applications you use, need to use your gender to refer to you properly on the site.

Some things (like your name and profile pictures) are always publicly available.

2.3 Finding you on Juji

To make it easier for others to find you and your brand, we allow anyone with your contact information (such as email address, a phone number, or a twitter handle) to find you through the Juji search bar at certain pages, as well as other tools we provide, even if you have not shared your contact information with them on Juji.

Although you can control who can view your individuality portrait or home page on Juji, keep in mind that people can still find you or a link to your page on Juji through other people and the things they share about you or through other posts, like if you post something to a public page.

Your settings do not control whether people can find you or a link to your Juji home page when they search for content they have permission to see, like a comment that you posted on a public Juji page.

2.4 Access on phones and other devices

Once you share information with others, they may be able to sync it with or access it via their mobile phones and other devices. For example, if you share your individuality portrait on Juji, someone viewing that portrait could save it using Juji tools or by other methods offered by their device or browser. Similarly, if you share your contact information with someone or invite someone to join Juji, they may be able to use Juji or third party applications or devices to sync that information. Or, if one of your friends has a Juji application on one of their devices, your information (such as the things you post or photos you share) may be stored on or accessed by their device.

You should only share information with people you trust because they may save it or re-share it with others, including when they sync the information to a device.

2.5 Others share information about you

Anyone can add a link to a post. Links are references to something on the Internet; anything from a website to a Juji page. For example, if you are writing a post, you might include a link to a blog you are referencing.

A mention is a special type of link to someone’s individuality portrait or Juji home page that suggests that the mentioned person add your post to their Juji home page. In cases where the mentioned person is not included in the audience of the post, it will add them automatically so they can see it. Anyone can mention you in anything. Once you are mentioned, you will be able to see it. If you do not want someone to mention you, we encourage you to reach out to them and give them that feedback.

2.6 Juji public home pages

Juji public home pages are public—anyone in the world can see any information included on these pages. Individuals, organizations, and communities may use the public pages for self branding and sharing information about their brand.

You can follow or bookmark a public page, which will be automatically added to your JujiBook. You may be contacted by or receive updates from the page owner, such as in your email. You can remove the pages added to your JujiBook.

Some pages contain content that comes directly from the page owner. Page owners can do this through online plugins, such as an iframe, and it works just like the games and other applications you use through Juji. Because this content comes directly from the page owner, that page may be able to collect information about you, just like any website.

Page administrators may have access to activity data, which will tell them generally about the people that visit their page (as opposed to information about specific people). They may also know when you have followed/bookmarked their page or posted a comment on the page.

III. Other websites and applications

3.1 About Juji Platform

Juji Platform (or simply Platform) refers to the way we help you share your information with the games, applications, and websites you use, which helps you make your experiences on the web more personalized and social.

Remember that these games, applications and websites are created and maintained by other businesses and developers who are not part of, or controlled by, Juji, so you should always make sure to read their terms of service and privacy policies to understand how they treat your data.

3.2 Controlling what information you share with applications

When you connect with a game, application or website, such as by going to a game, logging in to a website using your Juji account, or adding an app to your profile, we give the game, application, or website (sometimes referred to as just "applications" or "apps") your basic info (we sometimes call this your "public profile"), which includes your User ID and your public information.

Your User ID helps the application personalize your experience because it can connect your account on that application with your Juji account, and it can access your basic info, which includes your public information and people in your Juji Book. This includes the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available. If the application needs additional information, such as your specific individuality traits and posts, it will have to ask you for specific permission.

3.3 Controlling what is shared when the people you share with use applications

Just like when you share information by email or elsewhere on the web, information you share on Juji can be re-shared. This means that if you share something on Juji, anyone who can see it can share it with others, including the games, applications, and websites they use.

Other people you share information with often want to share your information with applications to make their experiences on those applications more personalized and social. For example, you share your individuality portrait to make a game experience more personalized and you also share your portrait with the game players with whom you are playing the same game. These players may re-share your portrait with other players on the same game site or with others on the other sites, depending on the permission you granted to the game site.

If an application asks permission from someone else to access your information, the application will be allowed to use that information only in connection with the person that gave the permission, and no one else. For example, some apps use information such as the people in your Juji Book, to personalize your experience or show you which of them use that particular app.

3.4 Logging in to another site using Juji

Juji Platform will let you log into other applications and websites using your Juji account. When you log in using Juji, we give the site your User ID (just like when you connect with any other application), but we do not share your email address or password with that website through this process without your permission.

If you already have an account on that website, the site may also be able to connect that account with your Juji account. Sometimes it does this using what is called an "email hash", which is similar to searching for someone on Juji using an email address. Only the email addresses in this case are hashed so no email addresses are actually shared between Juji and the third-party website.

3.5 How it works

The website sends over a hashed version of your email address, and we match it with a database of email addresses that we have also hashed. If there is a match, then we tell the website the User ID associated with the email address. This way, when you log into the website using Juji, the website can link your Juji account to your account on that website.

3.6 Juji widgets

Other websites can use various Juji widgets to present Juji content to you and create more social and personal experiences for you. While you see these widgets on other sites, the content comes directly from Juji. Sometimes widgets act just like applications. You can spot one of these widgets because it will ask you for permission to access your information or to publish information back to Juji. For example, if you use a registration widget on a website, the widget will ask your permission to share your basic info with the website to make it easier for you to register for the website. Similarly, if you use a Juji “feed” widget, the widget will ask for your permission to publish about your activities on that website to Juji.

If you make something public using a widget, such sharing your Juji individuality portrait on a review website, then that website can access your portrait information that you choose to share (along with your User ID). We receive data when you visit a site with a Juji widget. We keep this data for a maximum of 90 days. After that, we remove your name and any other personally identifiable information from the data, or combine it with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you.

3.7 Public search engines

Your public search setting controls whether people who enter your name on a public search engine may see your public profile. You can find your public search setting on the “Privacy Settings and Tools” settings page. This setting does not apply to search engines that access your information as an application using Juji Platform. If you turn your public search setting off and then search for yourself on a public search engine, you may still see a preview of your profile. This is because some search engines cache information for a period of time.

IV. Juji services and content

4.1 Juji services

Juji offers a range of services that allow individuals and businesses to specify their information preferences as well as their target audience. For example, by default, a user will receive only a minimal amount of relevant content (e.g., the maximum three Juji recommendations daily). A user can also explicitly specify their desired amount of content to be received, for example, one may specify his/her preference of receiving only three food truck recommendations weekly).

Furthermore, we do not share your personally identifiable information, such as your name or contact information with service providers unless you give us permission. We may provide service providers with information when we have removed your name and other personally identifiable information from it, or combined it with other information so that it no longer personally identifies you. For example, we may tell a service provider how many people may meet the criteria of its target audience.

Service providers may choose their audience by location, demographics, psychographic traits, and any other information we receive or infer about users. Here are some of the ways service providers may define a target audience of their services, for example,

  • demographics: 18 to 35 year-old female living in the United States;
  • interests: sports fans; and
  • psychographics: open-minded, family oriented, and adventurous.

If a service provider posts an opportunity (e.g., a product survey), we will send the opportunity to those whose traits match with the that of the target audience and have explicitly subscribed to such opportunities or those who have not explicitly specified that they are no interested in any or this specific type of opportunities in their information preference settings.

4.2 Juji content

We want to tell you about some of the features and tools others use on Juji, to help you have a better experience. For example, if people who are similar to you in terms of certain individuality traits find interesting opportunities on Juji, we may tell you about it to encourage you to find out more about the opportunities too. On the other hand, this means that others may similarly see suggestions based on the things you do. We will try to keep such content as relevant as possible to the individual and will not reveal the identities of the content sources unless we have the permissions from the users.

V. Cookies, pixels and other similar technologies

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Pixels are small blocks of code on webpages that do things like allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and often are used in connection with cookies.

We use technologies like cookies, pixels, and local storage (like on your browser or device, which is similar to a cookie but holds more information) to provide and understand a range of products and services.

We use these technologies to do things like:

  • Make Juji easier or faster to use;
  • Enable features and store information about you (including on your device or in your browser cache) and your use of Juji;
  • Deliver, understand and improve engagements;
  • Monitor and understand the use of our products and services; and
  • Protect you, others and Juji.

For example, we may use these tools to know you are logged in to Juji, to help you use Juji tools and features, or to know when you are interacting with our service providers or Platform partners.

We may ask service providers or other partners to serve services to computers, mobile phones or other devices, which may use a cookie, pixel or other similar technology placed by Juji or the third party (although we would not share information that personally identifies you with a service provider).

Most companies on the web use cookies (or other similar technological tools), including some of our service providers and Platform partners. For example, our Platform partners, publicize their brands on their public Juji home pages, their administrators may use cookies or similar technologies when you access their apps, ads, pages or other content.

  1. Cookies help make Juji work, like allowing pages to load faster because certain content is stored on your browser or by helping us authenticate you to deliver personalized content.
  2. Refer to your browser or device's help material to learn what controls you can often use to remove or block cookies or other similar technologies or block or remove other data stored on your computer or device (such as by using the various settings in your browser). If you do this, it may affect your ability to use Juji or other websites and apps.

VI. Other things you need to know

6.1 Contact us with questions or disputes

If you have questions or complaints regarding our Privacy Policy or practices, please contact us by email at hello@juji.io.

6.2 Responding to legal requests and preventing harm

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.

Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made with Juji, may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.

6.3 Trial users

From time to time, we invite users to test different versions or different features of Juji products and services. During such trials, our features may be incomplete or buggy, e.g., privacy setting controls are not in place yet or they are not fully functional. In such situations, we will keep all user information private by default excluding those defined “always public” as above.

6.4 Access requests

You can access and correct most of your personal data stored by Juji by logging into your account and viewing your individuality portrait and your Juji home page.

6.5 Notifications and other messages

We may send you notifications and other messages using the contact information we have for you, like your email address. You can control most of the notifications you receive, such as the change notifications triggered by your individuality portrait changes after you have added/uploaded new content, using the controls we provide, such as a control included in the email you receive or in your “Notifications” settings.

6.6 Invitations

When you invite a person to join Juji, we send a message on your behalf using your name, and we may also include additional appropriate information about Juji. We'll also send a few reminders to those you invite, but the invitation may also give your invitee the opportunity to opt out of receiving other invitations to join Juji.

We also may close an account if we receive a formal request that satisfies certain criteria.

6.7 Affiliates

We may share information we receive with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that Juji is part of, or that become part of that group (often these companies are called affiliates). Likewise, our affiliates may share information with us as well. This sharing is done in compliance with applicable laws including where such applicable laws require consent. We and our affiliates may use shared information to help provide, understand, and improve our services and their own services.

6.8 Service providers

We give your information to the people and companies that help us provide, understand and improve the services we offer. For example, we may use outside vendors to help host our website, serve photos and videos, process payments, analyze data, conduct and publish research, measure the effectiveness of ads, or provide search results. In some cases we provide the service jointly with another company. In all of these cases our partners must agree to only use your information consistent with the agreement we enter into with them, as well as this Privacy Policy.

6.9 Security and bugs

We do our best to keep your information secure, but we need your help. We try to keep Juji up, bug-free and safe, but can’t make guarantees about any part of our services or products.

6.10 Change of control

If the ownership of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so they can continue to operate the service. But they will still have to honor the commitments we have made in this Data Use Policy.

6.11 Opportunity to comment

Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, or to correct an inaccurate statement, we will give you seven (7) days to provide us with comments on the change. After the comment period, if we adopt any changes, we will provide notice (for example, on the Juji website and in this policy) of the effective date.

6.12 Your California privacy rights

California law permits residents of California to request certain details about what personal information a company shares with third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. Juji does not share your information with third parties for the third parties’ own and independent direct marketing purposes unless we receive your permission. Learn more about the information we receive and how it is used and other websites and applications. If you have questions about our sharing practices or your rights under California law, please contact us at: hello@juji.io.
