We started Cinnamon because we wanted a way for content creators to get paid without needing to rely on intrusive advertising that fails to respect users' privacy. Therefore, we take our own users' privacy very seriously. In order to run the service and respond to your requests, we need to collect some information from you, or about you. The information we collect and store about you depends on which aspect of our services you use.
If you visit our site and do not have a Cinnamon subscription or account, we only collect basic usage data like IP address, user-agent, and pages you access on our server (for more details see section "Information Collected Automatically" below) as part of the normal business of running a web service.
If you create an account on Cinnamon, we store the information you and your browser give us. We generally avoid storing and using your personal information as much as possible unless there is a legitimate, important purpose, examples of which include:
We will not divulge information to third parties unless it is first anonymized, except if we are required to share personal details by regulation, law, court order or to protect the safety of Cinnamon staff or partners, or as otherwise requested by you.
Cinnamon is a site for users to share their own content. So if you publish information on Cinnamon that violates your own privacy, we accept no liability or responsibility. For example: If you post a video of both sides of your credit card and someone blows all your money in Vegas, it's on you. (Protip: Don't.)
If you posted something by accident and are unable to remove it yourself, please contact us and we will make a reasonable effort to remove it from public view if we can.
We store and use the content of messages you send to us, such as feedback or questions and information you provide to customer support. We also store and use the content of your communications with Cinnamon support as necessary to provide you support for the Cinnamon Services you use. For example, if you start a chat with us on Intercom or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We automatically collect information about your device and how your device interacts with the Cinnamon Service. We may use Service Providers to collect this information. Some examples of information we collect include the following:
We use various technologies to collect this information (“Tracking Technologies,”), including the following:

Certain areas of the Cinnamon Service, such as user profiles and blogs, are designed to help you share information with the world. If you make information public through the Cinnamon Service, other people will have access to it. Please think carefully before making information public as you are solely responsible for any information you make public. Once you have posted information, you may not always be able to edit or delete such information; however, California residents and European data subjects have specific rights as set forth in “Your Rights and Choices” below.
The Cinnamon Service contains content from and hyperlinks to websites, locations, platforms, and services operated and owned by third parties (“Third Party Services”). These Third Party Services may use Tracking Technologies to independently collect information about you and may solicit information from you. The information collected and stored by third parties, whether through the Cinnamon Service, a Third Party Service, a Third Party Feature (defined below), or a third party device, remains subject to their own policies and practices, including what information they share with us, your rights and choices on their services and devices, and whether they store information in the U.S. or elsewhere. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and consult their privacy policies and terms of service.
You may access, update, or remove certain account information that you have voluntarily submitted to us through the Cinnamon Service by sending an email to the email address set forth in the section entitled “Contact Us” below. We may require additional information from you to allow us to confirm your identity. Please note that we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. California residents and European data subjects have additional rights as set forth in the sections entitled “Your California Privacy Rights” and “Your European Privacy Rights” below.
Please be aware that if you disable or remove Tracking Technologies some parts of the Cinnamon Service may not function correctly.
Please note that your opt-out is limited to the email address or device used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions.
California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, permits customers in California to request certain details about how certain types of their information are shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. Under the law, a business should either provide California customers certain information upon request or permit California customers to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing.
Cinnamon may share personal information as defined by California’s “Shine the Light” law with third parties and/or affiliates for such third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and wish to obtain information about our compliance with this law, please contact us as set forth in the section entitled “Contact Us” below. Requests must include “California Privacy Rights Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code. Please note that Cinnamon is not required to respond to requests made by means other than through the provided email address or mail address.
Any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use the Cinnamon Service and posted content or information on the Cinnamon Service, can request that such information be removed from the Cinnamon Service by sending an email to the email address set forth in the section entitled “Contact Us” below. Requests must state that the user personally posted such content or information and detail where the content or information is posted. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view.
If you are a data subject in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the right to access, rectify, or erase any personal data we have collected about you through the Cinnamon Service. You also have the right to data portability and the right to restrict or object to our processing of personal data we have collected about you through the Cinnamon Service. In addition, you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data (or provide it to third parties to process) for marketing purposes or purposes materially different than for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. You may withdraw your consent at any time for any data processing we do based on consent you have provided to us.
To exercise any of these rights, contact us as set forth in the section entitled “Contact Us” below and specify which right you intend to exercise. We will try to respond to your request within 30 days. We may require additional information from you to allow us to confirm your identity. Please note that we store information as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, and may continue to retain and use the information even after a data subject request for purposes of our legitimate interests, including as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent fraud, and enforce our agreements.
If you have any issues with our compliance, you have the right to lodge a complaint with an EEA supervisory authority.
The Cinnamon Service is intended for a general audience and not directed to children under thirteen (13) years of age. Cinnamon does not knowingly collect personal information as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA.
