We can request our advertisers to tell us how Amazon River Monsters users have responded to the ads we show them, and for the sake of comparison, how other users who have not seen the ads responded in their website. This comparison will help us to measure how effective our advertisements are and to improve the quality of the ads you see.
We can receive information about what you have or have not seen, or if you have interacted with specific ads of some other websites with the aim to measure the effectiveness of said ads.
We can compile information about you from other Amazon River Monsters users, such as when a fisherman follows you as a fisherman.
In this section, it is explained how the configuration of privacy works and how information in Amazon River Monsters is shared. Before sharing information in Amazon River Monsters, you must take into account the configuration of privacy.
Name and profile photo.Amazon River Monsters has been created in such a way that you find it simple to find and connect with others. That is why, your name and profile photo lack configuration of privacy. In case you do not want to share your profile photo, you can eliminate it or abstain from adding one. Should you fail to have a photo in your profile, Amazon River Monsters will replace it by an avatar or other, at Amazon River Monsters discretion.
Contact information. The configuration of your contact information, which is available in the configuration of privacy, controls who can contact you in Amazon River Monsters, and who can see your contact information, such as your email address.
We strongly advise that you always read the web sites policies and third parties applications to make sure you agree with the way in which they use the information you share with them. Amazon River Monsters cannot guarantee that these sites or applications will apply our rules. Should you find any web site or application which violates our rules, please tell us about said violations.
Advertisements. In certain occasions, the advertisers that advertise in Amazon River Monsters may use technological methods to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize the ad content. You can use the cookies configuration of your browser to limit or avoid cookies by ad networks. Amazon River Monsters does not share with the advertisers information which could allow them to identify you personally, unless you provide us with an authorisation.
Links. When you clink in some Amazon River Monsters links, it is possible that you are taken out of our web site. We are not liable for the privacy policies of other websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policies.
How we use your information.
We use the information we gather to offer you a safe, effective and personalized experience. Following, you will find some information about how we do it:
To administer the service. We use the information we gather to offer you our services and functions, to assess and improve them and provide you with technical support. Likewise, we use some technological systems to detect and take care of anomalous activities and content with the aim to avoid abuses, such as junk e-mail. These activities can cause, in certain occasions, the end, or temporal or permanent suspension of some functions to some users.
To contact you. Occasionally, we can contact you seeking to inform you about ads related to the services. You can opt not to receive any notification; except for the basic updates in the page of accounts notifications.
To offer personalized ads. We do not share information about you with our advertisers without your consent. If you ask Amazon River Monsters to provide an advertiser with your shipping address to receive a free sample, for example, that constitutes an example of your consent. We allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of those users who see their ads and we can use any of the information gathered which does not identify our users, -such as the information you have decided not to show to other users, for example the year of birth- to select the appropriate audience for said ads. For example, we can take advantage of your interest for fishing rods to show you ads about them, but we do not inform the company which sells said equipment who you are. You can check the criteria available for the advertisers to select by visiting our advertisements page. Even though we do not share your information with our advertisers without your consent, when you click on an ad or interact in any way with the advertisers, there is a chance that advertisers place a cookie in your browser and register that you comply with the criteria selected.
To offer you social ads. When the time comes, we can match the ads we offer you with the relevant information we have about you so that ads be more interesting and best suited to your needs.
To make suggestions. We can eventually use your information, including those addresses you import through the import of contacts tools, to make you and other Amazon River Monsters’ users’ suggestions.
To help other fishermen to find you. We allow other users to use the information of contact they may have about you, such as the email address, to find you, even through the import and search of contacts. You can prevent other users from using their email address to find you in your search section located in configuration of privacy.
Downloadable Software. Some applications of the downloadable software and applets we offer, such as the tool to upload photos, transfer us data. We may not make any formal statement if we believe that the compiling and use of the information from our part has the clear objective of such application, for example, the act of receiving photos when using the tool to upload photos. If we believe it is not clear that we are compiling nor using said information, we will let you know the first time you provide us with the information, so that you can decide whether you want or not to use that function.
How we share the information
Amazon River Monsters is based on sharing information with other fishermen, friends, and acquaintances, but at the same time you are offered the configuration of privacy tool to limit the access of other users to your information. We share your information with third parties when we believe that such action is allowed by you, or is reasonably necessary to offer our services, or when required by law. For example:
When you make a payment. In case you decide to carry out commercial transactions with other people or payments in Amazon River Monsters, we will only share the transaction information with the third parties necessary to complete said commercial transaction. In case this happens, we request third parties to respect the privacy of such information.
When you invite a fisherman friend to join Amazon River Monsters. When you request us to invite a friend fisherman to join Amazon River Monsters, we will send him a message on your behalf, making use of your name. The invitation may also contain information about other users who your friend might well know. Likewise, we will send him up to two reminders of your name. If your friend does not want us to keep his information, we will eliminate such at your request in this help page.
When you choose to share information with merchants. You can choose to share information with merchants or providers of electronic shops, which are not associated with Amazon River Monsters, through the sales of the website. Should you decide to so, it will be at your discretion and we will not provide said merchants with your information unless you state otherwise.
To help other fishermen and friends to find you. We include certain information that you have placed in your profile in the search results of Amazon River Monsters so as to help other fishermen and friends to find you. However, through our configuration of privacy, you control who can see your information and who can find you in a given search. We also help courier companies’ providers and email providers to identify which of their contacts are Amazon River Monsters users, so that we can advertise Amazon River Monsters to those users.
To give search engines access to information publicly available. In general, we do not limit the access of search engines to our website. We may allow them to have access to the general wall or the general section alike, and to the information of your profile which is visible for everyone. You can change the “visible” information in you profile in the section configuration of privacy. You can also prevent search engines from putting your profile an index format in the configuration of privacy of the applications and web sites.
To help improving or fostering our service. Sometimes we share aggregated data or anonymous information with third parties to improve or foster our service. However, we do it in such a way that no user can be identified, not link him/her with to any information or specific action.
To provide our services. We can provide information to service providers who enable us to make the service we offer easier. For instance, we can use third parties to host our website, send updates about Amazon River Monsters by email, and eliminate information related to our users list, process payments, or offer links or search results –which include advertised links- . These providers may have access to your personal information for a limited period of time and when this happens, we establish technical and contractual protection systems to limit the use of such information for the sole and only purpose they accomplish for us to offer the service.
To advertise our services. We can request advertisers, who have nothing to do with Amazon River Monsters, to show ads to advertise our services. We can ask them to do so through the use of a cookie. However, when doing so, we will not share any other information with the advertiser.
Editing your profile. You can change or eliminate your profile information at any moment.
How we Project your information

We may also limit the use of certain functions of the web site as a consequence of abuses, we may eliminate improper content or illegal links and we may suspend or block accounts if there were violations to our Declaration of rights and responsibilities.
Risks connected to sharing information. Even though you are allowed to define the privacy options which limit access to your information, you should take into account that no safety measure is perfect. We can (not) control the actions of those fishermen you share information with. We can not guarantee that only those who are part of Amazon River Monsters can see your information. We can not guarantee that the information you share in Amazon River Monsters will not be publicly available. We are not responsible if a third party infringes the configuration of privacy or safety measures in Amazon River Monsters.
