Oromoon, Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the https://oromoon.com website and the Oromoon mobile application (the “App”).
If you have any questions or comments about this Policy, please feel free to contact us at ➪ firstname.lastname@example.org
When you download the App and create an account ("Account"), we may collect certain information ("Registration Information") about you, such as:
Once you register, you will be able to review and make changes to this information at any time by accessing your “Settings.” You control your user profile and are able to correct or update your information at any time simply by logging into Oromoon.
The information we collect helps to enhance the App and verify our Guests (robots not welcome). Registration Information such as your name and age may be visible to the public on your profile page.
We may ask you to provide your full name, address and email address. Such details may be shared with third parties for purposes relating to, for example, any of our loyalty programs, sending gifts or delivery of merchandise.
We may also collect additional information in connection with your use of Oromoon, for example if you use our messaging function.
If you contact our Customer Support team, we will receive your email address, and may track your IP address as well as the information you send to us to help resolve your query. We will keep records of our communications with you, including any complaints that we receive from you about other Users (and from other Users about you).
We recommend and encourage you (and all our guests) to think carefully about the information you disclose about yourself. We also do not recommend that you put email addresses, URLs, instant messaging details, phone numbers, full names or addresses, credit card details, national identity numbers, drivers’ license details and other sensitive information on your profile which is open to abuse and misuse.
Please be careful about posting sensitive details about yourself on your profile such as your religious denomination and health details. You may also choose to add sensitive information about yourself, such as your religion and political leanings. While you may voluntarily provide this information to us when you create your profile, including your sexual preferences, there is no requirement to do so. Please remember that photographs that you post on Oromoon may reveal information about yourself as well. Where you do upload and choose to tell us sensitive information about yourself, you are explicitly consenting to our processing of your information and making this public to other users.
When you post information about yourself or use the messaging function, the amount of personal information you share is at your own risk. Please see below for more information on who can access what you post on Oromoon. If you post anything that is inconsistent with our Terms and Conditions, we reserve the right to terminate your Account.
For safety and security and to ensure you have the best possible user experience, we require users to verify their accounts and might ask for your phone number. We want to make sure you’re human and avoid fake Oromoon accounts being created which can be used for malicious activities and cybercrime—they threaten the Oromoon network and spoil the fun for our guests. We use a third-party provider for account verification who will keep your phone number for up to 90 days for fraud identification purposes. We collect and use your phone number on the basis of our legitimate interests identified below and for the prevention of fraud.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your account details are kept up to date. If your phone number changes, please ensure that you update this in your account.
To prevent abuse of the app/site, Oromoon uses automated decisions to block accounts as part of its anti-spam procedures. In order to do this, our systems check accounts and messages for content that indicates breaches of our Terms and Conditions. If an account or message meets certain criteria that demonstrate that the Terms and Conditions are likely to have been breached, the relevant account will automatically be blocked. All users of accounts that have been blocked will be notified that their account has been blocked and affected users can contact Oromoon to contest the decision.
Please note that if your account is blocked, any account(s) that you have on our other group platforms/applications may also be blocked as part of our anti-spam and anti-fraud procedures.
If you decide to purchase any of our premium Apps, we will process your payment information and retain this securely for the prevention of fraud and for audit/tax purposes.
