1. Privacy



Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Data Use Policy and Privacy Policies to make important disclosures about how you can use Kijovo to share with others and how we collect and can use your content and information. We encourage you to read the Data Use Policy, and to use it to help you make informed decisions.
