SoCoYoGo operates SoCoYoGo.com (“Site”) and may operate other websites. The Platform is provided and controlled by The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment (“Organization Name”, “we” or “us”).
If you are between 13 and 18 years old, we have prepared a separate summary of this policy and what it means for you.
Information do we collect?
We collect information when you create an account or use the Platform. We also collect information you share with us, and technical and behavioral information about your use of the Platform. We also collect information contained in the messages you send through our Platform.
We collect and use the following information about you:
Your Profile Information
You give us information when you register on the Platform, including your username, date of birth, email address and/or telephone number, information you disclose in your user profile and your photograph or profile image.
User Content and Behavioral Information
We process the content you generate and view on the Platform, including preferences you set (such as choice of how you are contacted), photographs and activities you upload, comments you make (“User Content”). We collect information through surveys, challenges and competitions in which you participate. We also collect information regarding your use of the Platform, e.g. how you engage with the Platform, including how often you use the Platform and how you interact with content we show you, the rewards you earn and redeem, content you watch and problems encountered, the content you like, the content you share, the words you search and the users you follow.
We infer your interests, gender and age for the purpose of personalizing content. If you have consented, we will use this information for the purpose of serving personalized advertising, rewards and other communications.
We review User Content for content moderation purposes to enforce our community guidelines, comply with legal obligations, and prevent and respond to abuse, fraud, illegal activity and other potentially harmful content on the Platform.
Where local laws allow us to, we collect and process your messages, which includes scanning and analyzing the information in those messages through the Platform’s messaging functionality. That information includes the content of the message and information about when the message has been sent, received and/or read, as well as the participants in the communication.
We do this to prevent and block spam, prevent and detect crime, safeguard children (where this is in the substantial public interest) or to protect the interests of our users and other people.
Please also be aware that messages sent to other users of the Platform will be accessible by those users and that we are not responsible for how those users use or disclose them.
Information from Third Parties
You may choose to share certain data with us from third parties or, through your use of the Platform, we may collect such third-party data automatically.
If you choose to register to use the Platform using your social media account details (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google), you will provide us or allow your social network to provide us with your username and public profile. We will likewise share certain information with the relevant social network such as your app ID, access token and the referring URL.
We use information provided by our measurement partners, to understand how you’ve interacted with our ad partners’ websites and better assess the effectiveness of the functionality on our Platform.

We offer users a loyalty style program (the SoCoYoGo Rewards Program) that provides certain perks, such as rewards and exclusive offers. We may also provide other programs such as sweepstakes, contests or other similar promotional campaigns (collectively, the “Programs”). If you join the platform, we use information (such as email address, name and/or telephone number) collected to administer the SoCoYoGo Rewards Program and to perform our contract to provide you with the benefits associated with the program. We also use this information to detect security incidents and to protect against malicious, deceptive, or fraudulent activity in connection with SoCoYoGo’s terms and conditions.
We keep a record of the rewards you earn and redeem, the activity logs to earning rewards, the time at which you make those redemptions and the amount spent so that we can credit your account with the correct value in coins.
User contact information (name, email address or telephone number) may be shared with the third-party business partners who are offering the reward to facilitate reward redemption.
Information you provide to us
We collect information you provide us in response to a survey. If you respond to a SoCoYoGo survey, your individual responses will be used for the purpose of the survey and will be shared with other organizations, as explained to you when you participate in a survey. We may also use aggregate data from these surveys in the same way.

The SoCoYoGo experience for Younger Users is designed especially for users 13-18 years old residing in the United States. The experience allows these users to engage with SoCoYoGo’s fun social and reward features while limiting the information collected from them. Younger users can view content from other users and receive rewards for logging their activities. Younger Users also have a more limited interactive experience: for example, they can’t exchange messages with other users, and other users can only view their profiles if they are connected to the user.
What information do we collect from Younger Users?
When a Younger User registers for SoCoYoGo, we collect only limited information, including username, password, and birthday.
We may also collect certain information automatically from the user’s device, including internet or other network activity information such as device ID, IP address, web browser type and version, country-level location, as well as certain app activity data, such as activity logs, time in the app, and general usage data.
How do we use the information we collect?
We use the information we collect to provide and support our services. For example, we use username and password to authenticate Younger Users. We may use the information that is collected automatically to provide personalized content; perform analytics and troubleshoot; protect the security or integrity of the user and our service; and ensure legal or regulatory compliance.
Users under the age of 13 cannot publicly share personal information, including images, activity information, videos or profile information. Users 13-18 may opt into sharing their profile information with others or only to those they are connected with on the platform.
How do we share the information we collect?
We share the information we collect with our local business partners, mentoring and youth group partners and with service providers as necessary for them to perform a business purpose, professional service, or technology support function for us.
We may disclose personal information if permitted or required by law (i) in response to a court order or a subpoena; (ii) in response to a law enforcement or public agency’s (including schools or children services) request; (iii) if we believe disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of Younger Users using our sites or applications; (iv) to protect the security or integrity of our sites, applications, and other technology, as well as the technology of our service providers; or (v) enable us to take precautions against liability.
The security of your information
We take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your information, for example, by encryption, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted through the Platform; any transmission is at your own risk.
We have appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of you and other users. We maintain these technical and organizational measures and will amend them from time to time to improve the overall security of our systems.
SoCoYoGo does not sell the information of Younger Users to third parties.
You may submit a request to access or delete the information we have collected about you by sending your request to us at the email or physical address provided in the Contact section at the bottom of this policy. We will respond to your request consistent with applicable law and subject to proper verification. And we do not discriminate based on the exercise of any privacy rights that you might have.
We will generally notify all users of any material changes to this policy, through a notice on the platform. However, users should look at this policy regularly to check for any changes. We will also update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this policy, which reflects the effective date of such policy.
