Thank you for using ItsHot Social!
We show you personalized content we think you’ll be interested in based on information we collect from you. We DO NOT share this information externally with any party and only use your information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so.
We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. Because we’re an internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy.
We collect information in a few different ways
1. When you give it to us
When you sign up for or use ItsHot Social you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, phone number, photos, interests, comments, and any other information you give us. You can also choose to share your precise location using your device settings or through photos. We will still use your IP address, which is used to approximate your location, even if you don't choose to share your precise location. You will also have the option to share other information about yourself such as your gender, age, etc.
2. We also get technical information when you use ItsHot Social
When you use a website, mobile application or other internet service, certain internet and electronic network activity information gets created and logged automatically. This is also true when you use ItsHot Social. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
Log data. When you use ItsHot Social, our servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website, or that your mobile app automatically sends when you’re using it. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address (which we use to infer your approximate location), searches, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used ItsHot Social, cookie data and device data.
Device information. In addition to log data, we collect information about the device you’re using ItsHot Social on, including the type of device, operating system, settings, unique device identifiers and crash data that helps us understand when something breaks.
Interests data. When you’re on ItsHot Social, we use your activity— Such your posts, and any text that you add in a comment or description—along with information you provided when you first signed up to derive your interest.
We’re committed to showing you content that’s relevant, interesting and personal to you. To do that, we use your information to provide and improve your experience, including:
Identify you when you use ItsHot Social.
Recommendations on interests or categories you might like based on your activity on ItsHot Social.
Improve ItsHot Social and offer new features.
Advertise ItsHot Social products and services to you.
Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like saves or comments, happens on ItsHot Social) and news by email or push notification.
Identify you across different browser sessions. This means if you log into ItsHot Social from your phone (or any device), we'll remember that you're you and then you won't need to enter your login details each time you visit ItsHot Social.
3. Transferring your information
ItsHot Social is a worldwide service. By using our products or services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those of your home country.
4. How and when we share information
Anyone can see the public posts, events, and groups you created and your public profile information. We do not share your private information or your personally identifiable information with anyone outside of ItsHotSocial Network., with an exception to, Law enforcement agencies or government agencies. We only share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or ItsHot Social; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
Our wholly-owned subsidiaries and affiliates. If we were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy, we would share your information with a party involved in such a process (for example, a potential purchaser).
5. How long we keep your information
We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide ItsHot Social to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.
6. Our policy on children’s information
Children under 13 are not allowed to use ItsHot Social. If you are based in the EEA you may only use ItsHot Social if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country.
7. Request Access

Have your information corrected or deleted. You can update your information in your profile or delete your data by closing your account.
8. Processing Your Data
You can object to us processing your information. You can ask us to stop using your information, including when we use your information to send you emails or push notifications. If you opt out of receiving messages from us, we may still send you updates about your account, such as when someone comments on one of your posts.
