Thanks for using WebFlux. Here, we'll explain how and why we collect information when you use our Service. We'll also explain the specific ways we use and disclose that information. We take your privacy seriously, and we never sell lists or email addresses.
Journey Group, Inc. ("Journey Group"), the creator and owner of WebFlux, is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals who:
visit WebFlux's website located at yourwebflux.com, which includes all subdomains, present and future (the “Website”); and use the content curation Service accessible via yourwebflux.com (the "Platform").
To make this policy easier to read, we call the Website and the Platform together the "Services".
We collect Personal Information (such as registration and account information) from our customers and users of the Services for our own purposes, such as to provide and administer the Services. We’re the data controller in respect of this information.
We also process Personal Information on behalf of our customers as their data processor, such as content generated, requested or published via the Platform in accordance with the instructions our customers give us through the Services (including, for example, the information our customers monitor or collect from social media sites like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook through the Services). Our customers control how their Customer Content is collected and used. In legal terms, this means that our customers are the data controller of their Customer Content. Accordingly, we only use Customer Content to provide the Services to our customers in accordance with the lawful instructions they give us through the Services.
When you first register for a WebFlux account, and when you use the Services, we may collect some Personal Information about you such as:

We may share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use the Services, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience.
WebFlux is a social media management tool. By its nature, Services enable our customers to bring together their social networks and combine with various content from around the Web, all in one place.
In particular, the various Services allow our customers to instantly connect to other third party services, including “Supported Platforms” such as Twitter, Instagaram, Facebook, etc. When our customers link a Supported Platform or a third party service (such as OpenID) to their WebFlux account or when they register with a Supported Platform through their WebFlux account, our customers can choose to instantly collect, process, share and access such third party services and Supported Platform via their WebFlux account (subject to the terms of the license agreements with the Supported Platforms and other third party services). In this way, our customers can obtain, use and analyze public Personal Information from Supported Platforms and third party services of their choosing, and also store, view or display Personal Information through the functionality in the Services. Such information can include Personal Information of all types, including but not limited to the following categories:
user generated content (such as messages, posts, comments, pages, profiles, images, feeds or communications exchanged on the Supported Platforms) contact details (such as name, email address, telephone number) additional individual information (such as age, gender, employer, profession, geographic location, education information, financial status, habits and preferences) information relating to individual’s real-time location
The Services use “session cookies”, which improve your user experience by storing certain information from your current visit on your device, such as log-in information. These enable us to remember your log-in session so you can move easily within the Services. Without these session cookies, we wouldn’t be able to provide the Services to you. These session cookies have limited functionalities and expirations, and you will be required to re-enter your WebFlux log-in information after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents and related Personal Information.
WebFlux uses a specific cookie in order to facilitate the use of Google Universal Analytics for users logged-in to the Applications or the Platforms (“Active User). If you are a Active User, Journey Group may use your WebFlux user ID in combination with Google Universal Analytics and Google Analytics to track and analyze the pages of the Services you visit. We do this only to better understand how you use the Website and the other Services, with a view to offering improvements for all WebFlux users; and to tailor our business and marketing activities accordingly, both generally and specifically to you.

We use industry best practices to keep any information collected and/or transmitted to the Supported Platforms or Third-Party Apps secure. This includes the use of HTTPS with TLS (Transport Layer Security), which encrypts all transmitted data, and OAuth 2.0 protocols for authentication and data transfer to Supported Platforms and Third-Party Apps.
Certain Personal Information, most notably WebFlux log-in details, is encrypted during transmission using TLS. Once validated within our system, passwords are deleted from our system. In addition, WebFlux uses third-party vendors and hosting partners such as Amazon to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Services. These vendors have been selected for their high standards of both physical and technological security, including ISO and SSAE16 certifications.
When payments are processed via credit card, WebFlux uses third-party vendors that are PCI-DSS Compliant. At no point does WebFlux have access to your credit card information.

We cannot guarantee the security of information you submit via the Services whilst it is in transit over the Internet and any such submission is at your own risk, and this risk is specifically disclaimed in our Terms.
If you are an Active User, it is advisable that you log out of your account at the end of every session and not leave a logged-in account unattended for any period of time, particularly if you use a shared computer or device.
WebFlux uses email as the primary mode of communications with our users. We want to respect your privacy by only sending emails of interest to you. You can manage your email preferences, such as opting-out or unsubscribing from emails sent by WebFlux, by adjusting your preferences in your account settings. You may also opt-out or unsubscribe from any future email communications from within a link provided in each email correspondence that we send you.

As mentioned above you have a right to change your email preferences at any time.
You should be aware that WebFlux acts as a conduit between our users and the various Supported Platforms and Third-Party Apps. In several instances, the content published via WebFlux will not be in WebFlux's custody or control, and any content that has been shared by you through any Supported Platform or Third-Party Apps via the Services may continue to be available to third parties and the public at large, as this content is now under the control of the operators of the Supported Platforms and/or the Third-Party Apps.
