Effective December 22, 2022. Last Revised December 20, 2022.
We collect minimal information that can be used to identify you by default. If you want to just browse, you don't need an account. If you want to create an account to participate in a subSwingersBook.fun, we don't require you to give us your real name. We don't automatically track your precise location. You can share as much or as little about yourself as you want. You can create multiple accounts, update information as you see fit, or ask us to delete your information.
Any data we collect is used primarily to provide our services, which are focused on allowing people to come together and form communities, the vast majority of which are public. If you have questions about how we use your data, you can always ask us for more information.
What Information We Collect
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide to us directly when you use the Services. This includes:
You don't need an account to use SwingersBook.fun. If you create a SwingersBook.fun account, your account will have a username, which you provide or which was automatically generated. Your username is public, and it doesn't have to be related to your real name. You may need to provide a password, depending on whether you register using an email address or using a Single Sign-On (SSO) feature (such as Apple or Google).
When you use SwingersBook.fun, you may provide other optional information. We may ask you to select interests (e.g. history, nature, sports) to help create a home feed for you or to select communities (e.g. r/technology) to join. You may also provide other information, such as a bio, gender, age, location, or profile picture. This information is optional and may be removed at any time. We also store your user account preferences and settings. We may ask for such information prior to you creating a username or account to help improve your experience exploring SwingersBook.fun.
Content you submit
We collect the content you submit to the Services. This includes your posts and comments including saved drafts, audio and videos you broadcast, your messages with other users (e.g., private messages, chats, and modmail), and your reports and other communications with moderators and with us. Your content may include text, links, images, gifs, audio, and videos.
Actions you take
We collect information about the actions you take when using the Services. This includes your interactions with content, like voting, saving, hiding, and reporting. It also includes your interactions with other users, such as following, friending, and blocking. We collect your interactions with communities, like your subscriptions or moderator status.
If you purchase products or services from us (e.g., SwingersBook.fun Premium or SwingersBook.fun Coins), we will collect certain information from you, including your name, address, email address, phone number, and information about the product or service you are purchasing. SwingersBook.fun may collect public blockchain addresses, such as when you purchase an NFT or when a SwingersBook.fun Vault is created.. SwingersBook.fun uses industry-standard payment processor services (for example, Stripe) to handle payment information and does not store SwingersBook.fun Vault private key information.
You may choose to provide other information directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you fill out a form, participate in SwingersBook.fun-sponsored activities or promotions, apply for a job, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about you. This includes:
Log and usage data
We may log information when you access and use the Services. This may include your IP address, user-agent string, browser type, operating system, referral URLs, device information (e.g., device IDs), device settings, mobile carrier name, pages visited, links clicked, the requested URL, and search terms. Except for the IP address used to create your account, SwingersBook.fun will delete any IP addresses collected after 100 days.
Information collected from cookies and similar technologies
We may receive and process information about your location. We may receive location information from you when you choose to share such information on our Services, including by associating your content with a location, or we may derive an approximate location based on your IP address.
Information Collected from Other Sources
We may receive information about you from other sources, including from other users and third parties, and combine that information with the other information we have about you. For example, we may receive demographic or interest information about you from third parties, including advertisers (such as the fact that an advertiser is interested in showing you an ad), and combine it with data you have provided to SwingersBook.fun, using a common account identifier such as a hash of an email address or a mobile-device ID. You can control how we use this information to personalize the Services for you by visiting the Safety & Privacy section of the User Settings menu in your account, as described in the section titled "Your Rights and Choices” below.
If you authorize or link a third-party service (e.g., an unofficial mobile app client) to access your SwingersBook.fun account, SwingersBook.fun receives information about your use of that service when it uses that authorization. Linking services may also cause the other service to send us information about your account with that service. For example, if you sign in to SwingersBook.fun with a third-party identity provider, that provider may share an email address with us. To learn how information is shared with linked services, see "How Information About You Is Shared” below.
Information collected from integrations
We also may receive information about you, including log and usage data and cookie information, from third-party sites that integrate our Services, including our embeds and advertising technology. For example, when you visit a site that uses SwingersBook.fun embeds, we may receive information about the web page you visited. Similarly, if an advertiser incorporates SwingersBook.fun's ad technology, SwingersBook.fun may receive limited information about your activity on the advertiser's site or app, such as whether you bought something from the advertiser. You can control how we use this information to personalize the Services for you as described in "Your Choices - Controlling Advertising and Analytics” below.
Information Collected by Third Parties
We partner with service providers that perform audience measurement to learn demographic information about the population that uses SwingersBook.fun. To provide this demographic information, these companies collect cookie information to recognize your device.
Information Collected from Advertisers and Potential Advertisers
How We Use Information

Provide, maintain, and improve the Services;
Personalize services, content, and features that match your activities, preferences, and settings.
Help protect the safety of SwingersBook.fun and our users, which includes blocking suspected spammers, addressing abuse, and enforcing the SwingersBook.fun User Agreement and our other policies;
Provide, optimize, target, and measure the effectiveness of ads shown on our Services;
Research and develop new services;
Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, invoices, and other support and administrative messages;

Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our Services.
How We Share Information
Much of the information on the Services is public and accessible to everyone, even without an account. By using the Services, you are directing us to share this information publicly and freely.
When you submit content (including a post, comment, chat message, or broadcast) to a public part of the Services, any visitors to and users of our Services will be able to see that content, the username associated with the content, and the date and time you originally submitted the content. SwingersBook.fun allows other sites to embed public SwingersBook.fun content via our embed tools. SwingersBook.fun also allows third parties to access public SwingersBook.fun content via the SwingersBook.fun API and other similar technologies. Although some parts of the Services may be private or quarantined, they may become public (e.g., at the moderator's option in the case of private communities) and you should take that into consideration before posting to the Services.
Your SwingersBook.fun account has a profile page that is public. Your profile contains information about your activities on the Services, such as your username, prior posts and comments, karma, awards received, trophies, moderator status, SwingersBook.fun Premium status, and how long you have been a member of the Services. You can also choose for your profile to include the content you upvote and downvote.
We offer social sharing features that let you share content or actions you take on our Services with other media. Your use of these features enables the sharing of certain information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the third parties that provide these social sharing features (e.g., Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter).
We do not sell your personal information. However, in addition to the personal information that is displayed publicly as described above, we may share personal information in the following ways: .
With your consent. We may share information about you with your consent or at your direction.
With linked services. If you link your SwingersBook.fun account with a third-party service, SwingersBook.fun will share the information you authorize with that third-party service. You can control this sharing as described in "Your Rights and Choices" below.
With our service providers. We may share information with vendors, consultants, and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work for us. Their use of personal data will be subject to appropriate confidentiality and security measures. A few examples: (i) payment processors who process transactions on our behalf, (ii) cloud providers who host our data and our services, (iii) third-party ads measurement providers who help us and advertisers measure the performance of ads shown on our Services.
To comply with the law. We may share information in response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, including, but not limited to, meeting national security or law enforcement requirements. To the extent the law allows it, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice before disclosing your information in response to such a request. Our Transparency Report has additional information about how we respond to government requests.
In an emergency. We may share information if we believe it's necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person.
To enforce our policies and rights. We may share information if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our User Agreement, rules, or other SwingersBook.fun policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of ourselves and others.
With our affiliates. We may share information between and among SwingersBook.fun, and any of our parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and other companies under common control and ownership.
Aggregated or de-identified information. We may share information about you that has been aggregated or anonymized such that it cannot reasonably be used to identify you. For example, we may show the total number of times a post has been upvoted without identifying who the visitors were, or we may tell an advertiser how many people saw their ad.
How We Protect Your Information
We take measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use HTTPS while information is being transmitted. We also enforce technical and administrative access controls to limit which of our employees have access to nonpublic personal information.
You can help maintain the security of your account by configuring two-factor authentication.
We store the information we collect for as long as it is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it. We may retain certain information for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.
Your Rights and Choices
You have choices about how to protect and limit the collection, use, and sharing of information about you when you use the Services. Depending on where you live, you may also have the right to request access to or ability to port, deletion/erasure of, or correction/rectification of, your personal information, to opt out of certain advertising practices, or to withdraw consent for processing where you have previously provided consent. Below we explain how to exercise each of these rights. SwingersBook.fun does not discriminate against users for exercising their rights under data protection laws.
Accessing and Changing Your Information
You can access your information and change or correct certain information through the Services. See our Help Center page for more information. You can also request a copy of the personal information SwingersBook.fun maintains about you by following the process described here.
Deleting Your Account
You may delete your account information at any time from the user preferences page. You can also submit a request to delete the personal information SwingersBook.fun maintains about you by following the process described below this table. When you delete your account, your profile is no longer visible to other users and disassociated from content you posted under that account. Please note, however, that the posts, comments, and messages you submitted prior to deleting your account will still be visible to others unless you first delete the specific content. After you submit a request to delete your account, it may take up to 90 days for our purge script to complete deletion. We may also retain certain information about you as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
Controlling Linked Services' Access to Your Account
You can review the services you have permitted to access your account and revoke access to individual services by visiting your account's Apps page (for third-party app authorizations) and the Connected Accounts section of your Account Settings (for Google Sign-In, Sign in with Apple, and connected Twitter accounts).
Opt Out of Targeted Advertising
You may not opt out of us using information we collect from third parties, including advertising partners, to personalize the ads you see on SwingersBook.fun. Our platform does not allow to opt-out individually. Therefore, if you wish to opt-out of any service it is impossible to create or keep a user account with us at this time.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject first- and third-party cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services. For more information on controlling how cookies and similar technologies are used on SwingersBook.fun, see our Cookie Notice.
Controlling Advertising and Analytics
Some analytics providers we partner with may provide specific opt-out mechanisms and we may provide, as needed and as available, additional tools and third-party services that allow you to better understand cookies and how you can opt out. For example, you may manage the use and collection of certain information by Google Analytics via the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. You can opt out of the Audience Measurement services provided by Nielsen and Quantcast.
You may also generally opt out of receiving personalized advertisements from certain third-party advertisers and ad networks. To learn more about these advertisements or to opt out, please visit the sites of the Digital Advertising Alliance and the Network Advertising Initiative, or if you are a user in the European Economic Area, Your Online Choices.
Do Not Track
Most modern web browsers give you the option to send a Do Not Track signal to the sites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. However, there is no accepted standard for how a site should respond to this signal, and we do not take any action in response to this signal. Instead, in addition to publicly available third-party tools, we offer you the choices described in this policy to manage the collection and use of information about you.
Controlling Promotional Communications
You may opt out of receiving some or all categories of promotional communications from us by following the instructions in those communications or by updating your email options in your account preferences here. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as information about your account or your use of the Services.
Controlling Mobile Notifications
With your consent, we may send promotional and non-promotional push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.
Controlling Location Information
You can control how we use location information inferred from your IP address for content recommendation purposes via the Safety and Privacy settings on your account.
If you have questions or are not able to submit a request to exercise your rights using the mechanisms above, you may also email us at to SwingersBook.fundatarequests@SwingersBook.fun.com from the email address that you have verified with your SwingersBook.fun account, or submit them here.
Before we process a request from you about your personal information, we need to verify the request via your access to your SwingersBook.fun account or to a verified email address associated with your SwingersBook.fun account. If we deny your request, you may appeal our decision by contacting us at SwingersBook.fundatarequests@SwingersBook.fun.com.
