We use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, Line, Apple iMessage, and may in the future use others. This allows you to communicate with such service and “like” or “comment” on the Platform. The social media plug-in enables a direct communication between your end user device and the servers of the social media provider, allowing the social media provider to communicate with you and collect information about you browsing our Platform. This processing represents our legitimate interest to improve your Platform User experience and to optimize those services and functionalities offered via the Platform. When you use a social media plug-in, transfer of your Personal Information may take place whether you have a registered user account with the applicable social media provider or not. Please note that we are not responsible for the content and the data collection on respective third-party websites or apps and that we neither control the extent of Personal Information collected by the respective plug-in provider nor do we know the purpose for processing or the period your Personal Information will be retained. For further information as to how and for what purpose the social network provider processes your data, please see the relevant privacy policies of these social network providers, and their notification when you connect to the social network in question. We recommend that you check and review the relevant privacy policies of any additional social network provides that we may add plug-ins for in the future.
As described in more detail in Sections 4 and 7 of the Terms of Service, certain personal information that you upload to the Platform (such as certain Account profile information), certain User Content (such as Creator Content you upload to and make public on the Platform, or comments that you post to the Platform), and certain Platform usage information (such as User Content you “like”), will automatically, or upon your selection, be made publicly available to other Users on the Platform. You acknowledge and agree that certain Account information (such as your Account profile name, picture, and/or User Content, etc.) that you provide in connection with (i) the registration of your Account and (ii) your general use of the Platform, such as uploading User Content, will be publicly viewable by all Users of the Platform. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of the other Users who will view and use this information, so you should carefully consider whether to upload any User Content on the Platform or how you identify yourself on the Platform. You should not disclose your home address or the address of your place of business, or other locations you frequent on a regular basis in any User Content.
Himalaya does not retain your username or password for Media Login Channels for any longer than is necessary to complete an interaction. If you would like to disconnect a Media Login Channel user account from the Platform, refer to the settings of that social media account and its provider.
We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions through the Platform (any, a “Promotion”) that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules, such as on a winner’s list.
4. Storage and Transfer of Information
Information collected by us may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our agents maintain facilities. By using the Platform, you expressly consent to any such transfer and storage of information outside of your country of residence, where data protection laws may be different and/or less stringent. However, we will endeavor to take reasonable measures to keep up an adequate level of data protection also when sharing your Personal Information with such countries.
With respect to any personal information that may be originally collected and stored in the EEA, if and when we transfer your personal information to countries outside the EEA, we will do so under the Commission’s model contracts for the transfer of personal information to third countries (i.e., standard contractual clauses). For a copy of these Standard Contractual Clauses, please contact us at email@example.com.
5. Your Rights and Choices
The Regulations provide individuals with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your rights and explains how to exercise those rights. As an overview, you may have the following rights under the Regulations:
As far as we process your personal information on the basis of our legitimate interests, you can object to processing at any time. You can find a detailed description of our processing activities and the legal basis in the sections above. If you object to such processing, we ask you to state the grounds of your objection in order for us to examine the processing of your personal information and decide whether to adjust the processing accordingly.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months (the “right to know”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the “right to delete”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.
To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information.
You may only submit a request to know twice within a twelve (12)-month period. Your request to know or delete must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. You do not need to create an account with us to submit a request to know or delete. We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it. For instructions on exercising your sale opt-out or opt-in rights, see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.
We will confirm receipt of your request within seven (7) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the seven (7)-day timeframe, please contact email@example.com.
We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another forty-five (45) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12)-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, specifically via secure email unless otherwise agreed.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you are age sixteen (16) or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”).

Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
8. Other California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law (California Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Platform that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
9. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
A more detailed list of the cookies we currently, or in the future may, use and how we use, or may use, them are as follows:
10. Web Beacons
Our Platform may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the Platform is used.
We use third parties to gather information about how you and others use the Platform. For example, we will know how many Users access a specific page and which User Content they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how the Platform is used.
11. Link to Third Party Websites
The Platform may include links to other websites, mobile applications or services (“Third Party Sites”), whose privacy practices may differ from those set forth herein. Such links are not an endorsement by Himalaya of those Third Party Sites and/or the products or services they offer. If you visit Third Party Sites or submit Information to any of those Third Party Sites, your visit and Information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Third Party Site you visit, as it may differ substantially from that of this privacy statement. Himalaya makes no representations or warranties with respect to, nor is Himalaya responsible for the privacy policies of, any Third Party Sites. If you decide to click on any such links or access any Third Party Sites appearing on the Platform, you do so at your own risk.
12. Do Not Track Requests
Please note that your browser setting may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online service you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your information, both during transmission and once we receive it, and to keep such information confidential (unless it is non-confidential by nature, for example, publicly-available information) and free from any unauthorized alteration. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and the nature of security risks is constantly evolving, as are the technical and organizational industry standards relating to management of those risks. While we strive to keep current our security technology and will review, refine and upgrade our security technology as we deem appropriate based on new tools that may become available in the future, the complete and absolute security of any Information collected, stored or used by us cannot therefore be guaranteed. In the unlikely event that an unauthorized third party compromises our security measures, we will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorized third party’s ability to view, use or disseminate such information. If you ever discover inaccuracies in our data or if your Personal Information changes, we urge you to notify us immediately.
If you have any questions about security on our Platform, you can contact us at email@example.com.
