Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information. We have outlined our privacy policy below.

  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

Joingy's website and app stores chat logs with timestamps of conversations that take place on our platform for moderation and law enforcement purposes. We also store the IP addresses of the users involved with each chat session.

Understand that anything you say on our platform is transmitted to other people. Additionally, users can choose to save public chat logs of your conversations that are stored on our servers and can be shared with anyone. Please be careful revealing any information to strangers you meet.

Webcams in video conversations may be monitored for moderation and law enforcement purposes. This can include but is not limited to, capturing image screenshots of webcams that are stored on our servers and can be used to identify if a user is breaking our Chat Rules or Terms & Conditions.

When using the video chat section, users are connected peer-to-peer in order to view each other's webcam feed. To do this, it is necessary to make users IP addresses available to the partners they connect with. We do not list users IP address on our website or app, but using certain software it can be intercepted by other users that you connect to. If you are not comfortable with this, please use our text chat section instead.

Joingy uses cookies to save your website/app preferences, including but not limited to keywords entered using our 'Interests' feature. Additionally, Joingy assigns a random cookie ID to your computer that is used to connect users to each other for chatting purposes.

Third-party advertising vendors, including Google AdMob, use cookies to track information about the pages you visit so that they can show you more appropriate ads. The cookie used by Google AdMob is called the DoubleClick DART cookie, and Google provides a way to opt out of being tracked by DART. You may also opt out of the tracking cookies used by many other third-party ad vendors.

Joingy uses Google Analytics and Matomo to track non-personally-identifying statistical information about site usage. Google provides a browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. Joingy may change this cookie and privacy policy from time to time at Joingy's sole discretion.
