We change this Privacy Policy from time to time.

We encourage you to keep up to date with the most recent Privacy Policy whenever you use Kanga's services.

Information We Collect From Other Sources

We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services.

We may use information about you for various purposes, including to:

Sharing of Information

We may share information about you as follows or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy:

  • With brands, vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf to process transactions you have requested, so long as those parties agree to keep your information confidential. Kanga will not otherwise sell or rent your personal information without your permission;
  • In response to legal process or a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation, or as otherwise required by any applicable law, rule or regulation;
  • In order to investigate or remedy potential violations of our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of Kanga, our users or others;
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company; and
  • We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

Kanga will not otherwise sell or rent your personal information without your permission.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a sale, merger, or reorganization involving the assets or capital stock of Kanga, Kanga may in fact transfer your information to the acquirer of such assets or capital stock or the entity resulting from any such merger or reorganization.

Analytics Services Provided by Others

We may allow others to provide analytics services on our behalf. These entities may use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Services and other websites, including your IP address, web browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and conversion information. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand your online activity. We may also engage in third party analytics in connection with Kanga mobile applications. Any such companies will have their own privacy policies that should be examined specifically for any details of specific tools they use to provide Kanga with analytics.

We may share information about our visitors in aggregate or de-identified form with third parties. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to indicate a restriction of our use or sharing of aggregated or de-identified information in any way.

We may also include links to third party websites on our Website in an attempt to provide you with increased value. These linked websites have separate and independent Privacy Policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including whether a specific link works)


We take reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Your personal information is stored behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a use enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are processed through a reputable third party payment processor and are not stored or processed on our servers.

Children: we do not offer Kanga to users under the age of thirteen. We do not knowingly collect personal information from users under the age of thirteen. By accepting our terms of services users acknowledge they are older than thirteen years of age.

Privacy Options

  • You may edit your Account Information about yourself in the edit profile page.
  • If you wish to delete your account please email with subject line "Delete Account Request" but notice that we may retain certain information as required by law, for legitimate business purposes, or as part of our regular retention practices. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time.
  • Certain features of the Services require access to your device's native phonebook and image storage applications. You can revoke these permissions in the settings page on your device if you desire.


When you first launch any features of our Services that require location, or upon registering for the first time, you will be asked to consent to our collection of this information. If you initially consent to our collection of information you can subsequently stop the collection by changing your mobile devices preferences. If you do this you will be prompted to reactivate it upon signing back into Kanga. Because the quality of Kanga services are directly related to the ability to use locations for the purpose of showing trends, it is required that you allow location services to access Kanga's Services. You may also stop the collection of location information by uninstalling Kanga from your device. Your specific location is only shared when you are at an event that is trending and even then is only available to your friends in the form of how many of their friends are at the event and who those friends are. Users may also choose to send a Kanga using their "current location" in which the location of the sender is used as the location for that Kanga and is then sent to the recipients of that Kanga.


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 browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Kanga website.
