WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect the following types of information from our users:
Personal Information You Provide to Us
We may receive and store any information you submit to the Application (or otherwise authorise us to obtain – such as, from (for example) your Facebook account). The types of personal information collected may include your full name, email address, gender, IP address, browser information, username, demographic information, and any other information necessary for us to provide the Application services.

We receive and store certain types of usage related information whenever you interact with the Application. For example, goa may automatically receive and record information regarding your computer’s IP address, browser information, Facebook user ID, Facebook Page fan status, and URLs accessed. Such information may be shared in aggregate (non-personally identifiable) form with our partners.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We use the information described in this Privacy Statement;
for record keeping purposes;
to analyse, develop, and improve products and services;
to market and promote our products and services to you;
as per the “Will goa Share any of the personal information it Collects” section below.
WILL WE SHARE ANY OF THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE RECEIVE?
Personal information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone. We share your personal information only as described below.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, goa’s agents do not have any right to use personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of personal information for the above purposes.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that we were to go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Statement.
We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
