Privacy and Policy
Information We Collect
When you use the Service you provide us with two types of information: (i) information you submit via the Service and (ii) information regarding your use of the Service collected by us as you interact with the Service.
Through the registration process you may provide us with your name, email address, hometown, and other information that may be requested during the registration process.
When you use the Service you may submit information and content to your profile, generate Activity Data through engaging in educational activities on the Service, or send messages and otherwise transmit information to other users. We store this information so that we can provide you the Service and offer personalized features.
Use of Information Obtained by Dyngle
We may use your contact information to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Dyngle and its partners that we think you may find valuable. Dyngle may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the Service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails, although Duolingo reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Profile information is used by Dyngle primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the Service and to be presented to other users. In some cases, other users may be able to supplement your profile, including by submitting comments.
Dyngle may use aggregate or anonymous data collected through the Service, including Activity Data, for any purpose. This data may be used by Dyngle and shared with third parties in any manner.
Sharing Your Personally-Identifiable Information with Third Parties
Dyngle shares your personally-identifiable information only in limited circumstances where Dyngle believes such sharing is reasonably necessary to offer the Service, legally required or, permitted by you. For example:
We may provide personally-identifiable information to service providers who help us bring you the Service, such as hosting the Service at a co-location facility or sending email updates. In connection with these operations, our service providers may have access to personally-identifiable information for use for a limited time. Where we utilize service providers for the processing of any of personally-identifiable information, we implement reasonable contractual protections limiting the use of that personally-identifiable information to the provision of services to Dyngle.
We may be required to disclose personally-identifiable information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, we may share account or other personally-identifiable information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service or using the Dyngle name, or to prevent imminent harm. This may include sharing personally-identifiable information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Dyngle business, or individual business units or assets owned by Dyngle that are related to the Service, were to change, your personally-identifiable information may be transferred to the new owner. In any such transfer of information, your personally-identifiable information would remain subject to this section.
