Privacy policy

Hello, and welcome to our Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy helps you to make informed decisions about your relationship with us, so please read it carefully.

1. Introduction

Thanks for choosing Instawoosh. This is our Privacy Policy. Before getting into the details, we’d like to highlight some of the key principles behind it. These principles are important to us because we know they’re important to you.

The Privacy Policy is here to do three things:

  1. • Explain the way we use information that you share with us in order to build a great product and give you a great experience with it;
  2. • Ensure that you understand what information we collect with your permission, and what we do — and do not do — with it;
  3. • Hold us accountable for protecting your rights and your privacy under this policy.

All the information we collect is related to providing the Instawoosh service and its features.

Broadly speaking, there is one catagory of information we collect: 1) information that we must have in order for you to use Instawoosh.

This category includes:

  • • Registration information, including your name, email address, and other information you provide when you sign up for Instawoosh.
  • • Instagram information, including your username, password, personal statistics, and other information we need to offer our services.
  • • Broad, non-specific location, which we derive from your IP address. Our use of proxies is location-specific, so we need to know what country you’re in. This also enables us to make suggestions based on your general location.

Information in the first category is information you must provide in order to use Instawoosh. When you agree to our Privacy Policy, you give us the right to collect this information and use it for the purposes described.
