Information we collect
We collect information in two ways:
Information you provide (voluntarily submit). Most often, this includes information related to registering for a user account, which includes items such as your name, email address, and state. Other information will include the names, ages, and genders of your children. This is sensitive information and we protect it very dearly. Other information you provide may include any pictures, videos, or other information you submit to the Service.
Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information during your use of our applications and services. This information may include information about which videos have been viewed from your account. This information includes:
◦ Device information We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Alfarays.com may associate your device identifiers or phone number with the accounts of any Alfarays.com services you may use.
◦ Log information When you use services or view content provided by Alfarays.com, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. The primary purpose of this tracking is to know who has viewed your content, as well as to ensure there is some tracking of any potentially undesirable behavior on Alfarays.com services. This information may include:
▪ Details of how you used our service, such as which features you have used.
▪ IP (Internet Protocol) address.

◦ Unique application numbers Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to Alfarays.com when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
◦ Local storage We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and native application data caches.
◦ Cookies and anonymous identifiers We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Alfarays.com service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We will not share these anonymous identifiers with any partners.
How we use information we collect
The information we collect is used for two primary purposes, to improve the quality of the services we offer and to protect any users of our service.
When you contact Alfarays.com, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
Please note that all information users provide to Alfarays.com is subject to review before making that information available to any other users of Alfarays.com services. For example, all user-provided videos will be reviewed by humans for potential safety risks before enabling that video to be shown to other Alfarays.com users.
We use information collected from our services to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer.
Alfarays.com may process personal information on servers located in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
While the Service does not currently contain in-application advertising, we may in the future include such advertising, and information collected may be used to optimize the delivery and effectiveness of such advertising.
Transparency and choice
Different people have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
• Review any information you have explicitly entered into Alfarays.com account information forms.
• Delete and remove any information you have provided to Alfarays.com services, such as videos or pictures if any.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
By default, many of our services let you share information with other users through the social networks or with the users of Alfarays.com services. In case of the second, your information will only be shared with other Alfarays.com services. Our services may provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Information we share

• With your consent We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Alfarays.com when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
• For legal reasons We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Alfarays.com if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
◦ meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
◦ enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
◦ detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
◦ protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Alfarays.com, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We work hard to protect Alfarays.com and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular, we, or third party vendors on our behalf:
• encrypt many of our services using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
• review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
• restrict access to personal information to Alfarays.com employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
