Policies last updated: February 5, 2018


We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit any of our web sites such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

For the purpose of receiving email alerts, we do collect your email address which enters into our master email database. We will never release your email address to anyone, except in the case of disclosing your email address in response to any legal process.

We use non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.

We may disclose personally identifiable information, such as an email address, in response to any legal process. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, and applicable laws or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements. In addition, we may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another company.

Agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for us.

Some of our sites contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. You should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information presented by third-parties.

We may update this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to check back often for any revisions to this policy.

LBMoji Keyboard

The LBMoji Keyboard app does not track or record any text you type, ever, including sensitive information. Additionally, the keyboard app never transmits any data back to us, or to any third party.

The keyboard requires that you have “Allow Full Access” turned on in order to be able to use the keyboard app in other apps. Turning on “Allow Full Access” triggers a warning, which states that full access could allow the developer (us) to record and transmit anything you type; however, we do not.

If you are concerned about allowing this app full access, we suggest you opt instead to use the built-in LBMoji Sticker Pack for Messages. The sticker pack does not require full access like the keyboard does, and includes some additional features, such as single-tap and peel-and-place sending of stickers.
