This Policy aims to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and how your personal data is used, accessed, modified, disclosed and deleted, but it may not address all possible data processing scenarios. We may inform you of content- or service-specific data collection through supplementary policies or notices provided before collection.
This Policy is formulated to help you understand:
1.1How we collect and use your personal data
1.1.1Personal data refers to any data related to an identified or identifiable natural person recorded by electronic or other means, excluding anonymized data. Before using our contents or services, you may need to provide personal data. In some cases, you may be able to opt not to disclose your personal data to us. However, not providing us with certain data may mean that we cannot provide you with certain contents or services or respond to or solve an issue that you encounter. Your personal data will be submitted directly when you use our website (this "Website"), contents or services, or when you interact with us.
1.1.2We may collect and use your personal data for the following purposes:
22.214.171.124 In the following scenarios, we will collect your nickname, profile picture, phone number and/or personal email address ("General User Data"):
The data we collect depends on how you interact with us. We collect your General User Data by recording how you interact with our website, contents or services (for example, with technologies such as cookies, or receiving usage data from software running on your device).
126.96.36.199 In the following scenarios, we will collect your following data in addition to General User Data:
188.8.131.52 At present, we do not take the initiative to obtain your personal data from external third parties. If we need to obtain your personal data indirectly from a third party for business development in the future, we will clearly indicate to you the source, type and scope of use of your personal data in advance. If our processing of your personal data is beyond the scope of your consent to such a third party, we will obtain your explicit consent in advance. Meanwhile, we will strictly abide by the relevant laws and regulations, and ask the third party to guarantee the legality of the information provided by it.
1.1.3 We may also collect and use non-personally identifiable information (Non-PII). Non-PII refers to data that cannot be used to identify a particular individual. For example, we will collect statistical data, such as the numbers of visits to a website. We collect this data to understand how users use our websites, content, and services so that we can improve our services and better satisfy your needs. We may collect, use, process, transfer, or disclose non-PII for other purposes at our own discretion. We will endeavor to isolate your personal data from non-PII and ensure that the two types of data are used separately. If personal data is combined with non-PII, it will still be treated as personal data during processing.
1.2 How we use your personal data
We will use your personal data for the following purposes in strict accordance with applicable laws, regulations, agreements with you, and this Policy:
1.2.1 To achieve the purposes stated in Article 1.1 "How we collect and use your personal data", we undertake to use collected data to provide you with the following services, including but not limited to:
1.2.2. To conclude or perform a contract as necessary.
1.2.3 To report to related departments in accordance with laws, regulations and regulatory requirements.
You understand and acknowledge that anonymous summary statistics are not personal user information as defined by applicable laws and regulations, and we will keep and use such information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to identifying the purchase intention of relevant individuals to our products and services.
If we use your personal data beyond the purposes stated at the time of collection and scope that is directly or reasonably related to such purposes, we will obtain your consent again before using your personal data in confirmation agreement, text confirmation action in specific scenarios, or other forms in accordance with the requirements of laws, regulations and national standards.
To ensure that our website functions properly, we may at times store a small piece of data known as a cookie on your computer or mobile device. A cookie is a text file stored by a web server on a computer or mobile device. The content of a cookie can be retrieved or read only by the server that creates the cookie.

Cookies enable websites to store data such as your preferences.
2.2. Website beacons and pixel tags
In addition to cookies, we may also use other similar technologies on our websites such as website beacons and pixel tags. For example, when you receive an email from us, it may contain a click-through URL that links to our web page. If you click the link, we will track your visit to help us learn about your preferences for content and services and improve our customer service. A web beacon is a transparent graphic image embedded in a website or in an email. We use pixel tags in emails to find out whether an email has been opened. You can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time if you do not want to be tracked in this manner.

If we need to share your personal data with our affiliates for future business development, we will inform you of the recipient's name and contact information, the processing purpose and manner, type of personal data involved in advance. If data processing requires your consent, we will obtain your consent again before sharing your personal data with our affiliates.
3.1.4 Sharing with authorized partners: We currently do not entrust authorized partners to provide you with services. If we need to share your personal data with authorized partners for future business development, we will only share some data with authorized partners to the extent necessary and reasonable. We will enter into a strict non-disclosure agreement or provision with companies, organizations, and individuals with which we share personal data, and require them to process personal data in accordance with our instructions, this Policy, and any other relevant non-disclosure and security measures. With respect to usage of sensitive personal data, we require third parties to adopt data masking and encryption technology for enhanced protection.
3.1.5 To ensure a positive user experience, you may receive content or web links from third parties other than OpenAtom and its partners. We do not have the right to control such third parties, but you can choose whether to access the links, content or services provided by third parties.

The security of your personal data is important to us. We use appropriate physical, management, and technical measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, modification, damage, or loss. For example, we use cryptographic technologies for data confidentiality, protection mechanisms to prevent attacks, and access control mechanisms to permit only authorized access to your personal data. We also provide training on security and privacy protection for employees to raise their awareness of personal data protection. We are committed to protecting your personal data; however, please note that no security measure is perfect.
We will retain your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes stated in this Policy, unless otherwise extending the retention period is required or permitted by law. The data storage period may vary with scenario, content, and service. The standards OpenAtom uses to determine the retention period are as follows: the time required to retain personal data to fulfill business purposes, including providing content and services; maintaining corresponding transaction and business records; controlling and improving the performance and quality of products and services; ensuring the security of systems, contents, and services; handling possible user queries or complaints and locating problems; whether the user agrees to a longer retention period; and whether the laws, contracts, and other equivalencies have special requirements for data retention; etc. We will maintain your registration information as long as your account is necessary for service provision. You can choose to archive your account. After you deregister your account, we will stop providing you with content and services through your account and delete your relevant personal data, provided that deletion is not otherwise stipulated by special legal requirements.
Our websites, content and services are primarily intended for adults. A child (under the age of 14) must not create an OpenAtom account without the consent of the child's parent or guardian. If a child's personal data is collected with prior parental consent, we will only use or disclose the data as permitted by law, with the explicit consent of the child's parents or guardians, or when necessary for the protection of the child. If we accidentally collect a child's personal data without verified prior consent from the child's parents, we will attempt to delete the data as soon as possible.
As a global foundation, your personal data collected by us may be processed or accessed in the country/region where you use our content and services or in other countries/regions where we or our affiliates, service providers or business partners have a presence. These jurisdictions may have different data protection laws. In this case, we will take measures to ensure that data is processed as required by this Policy and applicable laws.
If you have any privacy questions or complaints, please send an email to email@example.com. Generally, we will strive to reply within 15 working days. If you are not satisfied with our reply, especially when you think our processing of your personal data has harmed your legitimate rights and interests, you can also file a lawsuit at the competent court where OpenAtom is located.
