WHAT THIS POLICY COVERS
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information. The term "Personal Information" as used herein means information relating to a living individual who is or can be identified from that information or from that information in conjunction with other information that is or comes into our possession.
Account & Billing Information. If you create an account with us, you will be required to provide us with certain information, including, but not limited to, your name, phone number and/or email address, username and account password. You acknowledge that this information may be personal to you, and by creating an Account and providing Personal Information to us, you allow others, including us, to identify you and therefore may not be anonymous. Additionally, if you register for or access the Services using a Third-Party Service (such as your social media account login credentials), we may receive Personal Information that you allow such Third-Party Service to share with us. If you elect to purchase Services for which fees are applicable, you will be asked to provide valid and up-to-date credit card information or other payment information. We also collect information if you contact us for support or help, or otherwise communicate with us.
We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services. You may unsubscribe from some of these messages by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, although we, regardless, reserve the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for account recovery purposes.
Information Collected From Your Use of the Services. When you use the Services, we automatically collect certain information, which may include Personal Information, regarding your access to and use of the Services. This information may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, device type, language, referring website URLs, log files, pages on the website that you visit, and links you click on (collectively, "Usage Information"). We also collect information, including Personal Information, you choose to provide through your use of the Services (for example, if you provide comments to an article or submissions to a forum). If you use our Services on a mobile device, you may choose to provide us with location data. We may provide you with the ability to link your account to a third-party website or service. If you link an account you have with a third-party website or service to your account with us, we will obtain information, including any Personal Information that you have provided to the third-party website or service, to the extent allowed by your settings with the third-party website or service and as authorized by you.
Information From Third Parties. We may receive information about you and your activities on other sites or services from third parties we work with, including affiliates and advertisers.
EMAIL, TEXT, and PUSH NOTIFICATION COMMUNICATIONS
We may communicate with you via push notification, email, SMS, MMS or other text message ("Message") (to the extent you permit us to do so), and we may collect information regarding such communications, such as confirmation when you open an email, read a message or receive a push notification. We use this information to improve our Services, including without limitation, our customer service.
ACTIVITY ON THE SERVICES
Some of your activity on and through the Services is public. This may include, but is not limited to, content you have posted publicly on, through or in connection with the Services, including without limitation on public portions of Third-Party Services, such as your social media accounts.
Please remember that if you choose to provide Personal Information using certain public features of the Services, then that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and may be publicly available. Individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge, and search engines may index that information. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content or information that you create or submit through the Services.
AGGREGATE AND NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Generally, the Services automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the App and users of the Services. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, or in other anonymous forms, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that we can analyze and improve them.
Some of our Services may include features based on users' actual locations and may report on users' current locations ("Location-Based Services"). To the extent you voluntarily opt to use any Location-Based Services, we may collect and store information about your location at the time you use those Location-Based Services. Additionally, we may also collect and/or receive location information from your use of the Services generally, which can come from a variety of sources, depending on how you use or access the Services. For example, an image taken from your mobile device may contain location information related to where the image was taken, or a mobile device may report its GPS location at the time Location-Based Services are used.
INFORMATION SHARED WITH OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS
INFORMATION DISCLOSED PURSUANT TO BUSINESS TRANSFERS
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if all or substantially all of our assets, were acquired by another party, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT
Should you ever decide to delete your Account, you may do so by emailing email@example.com. If you terminate your Account, any association between your Account and information we store will no longer be accessible through your Account. However, any public activity on your Account prior to deletion will remain stored on our servers and will remain accessible to the public until such time as we delete it, in our discretion.
POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN
Our Services are not intended for any persons under 18 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under 18 years of age. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child has provided Personal Information to us without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that any person under 18 years of age has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information we collect, maintain and transmit. We have in place commercially reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards intended to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unauthorized form of processing of the Personal Information in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and we also employ application-layer security features to further anonymize Personal Information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure. We cannot, and do not, guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Services, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot, and do not, guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Information has been compromised, please contact us at email@example.com.
If we learn of a security breach involving your Personal Information, we will inform you and take other steps as required under applicable law.
