Privacy terms


Using our app to do anything other than access the links to this "Terms" page or accessing any page of our website other than our home page and this "Terms of Service" page constitutes your consent to these terms of use and to our Privacy Policy. If you do not consent, do not use our website.

Your use of our website to do anything beyond simply accessing/viewing it (that is, uploading, downloading, commenting, etc.), constitutes not merely your consent, but also your electronic signature, meaning that you are contractually bound by these terms and by our Privacy Policy.

Our community rules

These Terms of Use are our contract with you. We also have community rules, developed thanks to input from the kpopping community, that serve as guidelines for using kpopping. We welcome your input.

Stuff not to do

If someone else might own the copyright to it, don't upload it. Don't upload gore, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages violence or crime. Don't upload illegal content such as child porn or nonconsensual ("revenge") porn. Don't hotlink to adult content or to file-sharing, gambling, torrent, warez. Don't impersonate someone else, including but not limited to Korean idols. Also, don't use kpopping to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do – and we will be the judge – or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, pursue legal action if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on kpopping.com.

This Cookies Policy forms part of our general Privacy Policy.

In common with most other websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to help us understand how people use Kpopping so that we can keep improving our Platform. We have created this Cookies Policy to provide you with clear and explicit information about the technologies that we use on Kpopping, and your choices when it comes to these technologies.

If you choose to use the Platform without blocking or disabling cookies or opting out of other technologies, you will indicate your consent to our use of these cookies and other technologies and to our use (in accordance with this policy and the rest of our Privacy Policy) of any personal information that we collect using these technologies.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

Kpopping Cookies

We use our own cookies to recognise you when you visit our website. This means that you don’t have to log in each time you visit, and we can remember your preferences and settings.

Those cookies with one- or two-letter names (such as “a”, “c” or “qc”) are Kpopping cookies.

Third Party Cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we work with various reputable companies to help us analyse how the Platform is used, and to optimise our Website and Apps to deliver the best possible experience. The following companies help us achieve this through use of cookies:

Google Analytics and Google Website Optimizer

Google Analytics and Google Website Optimizer are services provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use our website, our mobile site and any Kpopping® players embedded on third party sites. Google Web Optimzer uses the same cookies to measure how different users respond to different content. The information generated by these cookies (including your truncated IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your, and other users’, use of our website, mobile site and Kpopping players, compiling reports for us on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Please note that Google only receives your truncated IP address. This is sufficient for Google to identify (approximately) the country from which you are visiting our sites or accessing our players, but is not sufficient to identify you, or your computer or mobile device, individually.

Google cookies are those beginning “__ut”.

You can find more information here, including a link to Google’s privacy policy.

To opt out of this analysis by Google, please see the Opting Out section below.

Google AdWords and Google Remarketing

We use the online advertising program Google AdWords and the Google Remarketing technology, both operated by the company Google Inc. ("Google") .

For measuring conversion with Google AdWords, a conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on a Kpopping advertisement delivered by Google (“Ads”). Conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Google uses a different cookie for each Google AdWords customer and there is no consolidation of the cookie data with other data. If you click on one of our Ads and proceed to a page equipped with a conversion tag and the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion is documented. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie we see the total number of conversions and are able to review the performance of our Ads. You can find more information about Google AdWords here.

When you click on one of our Ads, a Google Remarketing cookie is placed. This cookie helps to serve our Ads to you at a later time when you browse pages of the Google content network. Remarketing cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. For more information on Google Remarketing, please see here.

Google cookies are those beginning “__ut”.
