As IQ Polls evolves, we may need to update this Policy to keep pace with changes in the Service and laws applicable to us and you; we will, however, always maintain our commitment to respect your privacy.
I. Information Collection and Use
What Information Does IQ Polls Collect About Me and Why?
If you are a Registered User (i.e. you use the Service in order to create or otherwise make available any Content on IQ Polls (for example, in order to create a poll)):
We collect very little personal information about our Users, especially Registered Users of our free Service. The list of the 'Personal Information' IQ Polls may collect, and why we collect it, is as follows:
- Your username, email address, and contact preferences, or any other information you provide us when you contact us. This lets us create your account, provide you with convenient and personalized access to your account, and deliver and support the Service. This information also helps us communicate with you about your use of the Service, product announcements and updates, as well as respond to your requests for assistance (including providing account verification support if you're having difficultly accessing your account). In addition, we may use your Personal Information to send you marketing emails and special offers related to the Service. For more information, please see the section below entitled, 'Will IQ Polls Send Me Emails?'
- For Premium users, transactional information such as your credit card number and billing address or your PayPal account information. This lets us process your payments for Premium services.
- The IQ Polls products and services you use. This information helps us deliver and support the Service and respond to your requests for assistance. We also collect this information to improve our understanding of how our users use the Service.
- Any Content you add to your account. We don't use this information for any purpose other than to make sure it is available to you when you use the Service, and to make such Content available to the other Users you allow to view or otherwise use the Content made available by you.
The Personal Information, as indicated above, is only used by IQ Polls for the purposes indicated above.
IQ Polls' web site and applications also collect and receive information from your computer or mobile device, including the activities you perform within your account, the type of hardware and software you are using (for example, your operating system or browser), and information obtained from cookies (for more information see below part 'Tell Me More About The Tracking Information IQ Polls Collects?').
Gathering this kind of information helps us administer the Service, provide convenient and personalized user access, improve the features and usability of our products and Service, analyze user trends and information about users' use of our Service (including the extent to which our users share or make public notes and notebooks), collect information about use and growth of the Service in specific regions, and evaluate the content and organization of our site. We do NOT collect information about you to deliver any targeted advertising to you, or track your visits to any third-party websites.
If you are a Non-registered User (i.e. you use the Service as the audience (for example, in order to vote)):
We do not collect any Personal Information of Non-registered Users.
The Service may grant the Registered Users a possibility to collect certain Personal Information (for example, email addresses) of the Non-registered Users who have the right to view or otherwise use the Content made available by such Registered User (for example, audience voting in a specific poll). Please note that in such cases the respective Registered User (and not IQ Polls) collects Personal Information, and IQ Polls does not bear any responsibility in relation to such collection or processing of Personal Information.

What Is IQ Polls's Approach to Information Collected From Children?
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children without the consent of their parents or guardians, and if we learn that we have inadvertently done so, we will promptly delete it.
For How Long Does IQ Polls Keep My Personal Information?
IQ Polls keeps the Personal Information collected as long as your account with IQ Polls is activated. When you close your account, we may retain the copies of the information made available on your account, including the Content posted by you on IQ Polls, archived according to the requirements of applicable law, for backup, archival or audit purposes and for commercially reasonable period of time, but no longer than one year.
Will IQ Polls Send Me Emails?
From time to time, we may want to contact you with information about product announcements, updates and special offers related to the Service. You may opt out of such communications at any time by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link found within IQ Polls email updates.
Do I Give Any Consents?
II. Information Access and Disclosure

V. Do I Have any Obligations Related to Privacy?
Yes, we do respect your privacy, and you should respect the privacy of others while using IQ Polls.
As further developed in the Terms of Service, you may not post any Content that contains any information or other content that may be deemed to be infringing privacy of others or defamatory. IQ Polls takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Content that any User posts or makes otherwise available on IQ Polls.
