GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Users of the Application Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. Like most mobile application operators, the Company gathers from users of the Application Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that web browsers and applications, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the Application the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Application, as more fully described herein. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the user’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Company may analyze Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Application to help the Company better understand how the Application is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the Application to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Application users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Application.
We also collect User Content. “User Content” is defined as all text, documents, or other content or information uploaded, entered, or otherwise transmitted by you to us in connection with your use of the Application.
Automatically Collected Information
Certain data about the devices you use to connect with our Application and your use of the Application are automatically logged in our systems, including:
Mobile Device Information. When you use a mobile Device to access the Application or download any of our applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address.
Log data. As with most application and technology services delivered over the internet, our servers automatically collect data when you access or use our Application and record it in log files. This log data may include the IP address, browser type and settings, the date and time of use, information about browser configuration, language preferences, and cookie data.
Usage information. This is information about the Application and how you use it. We may also obtain data from our third-party partners and service providers to analyze how users use our Application. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page on the Application and which links they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to better understand and optimize the Application.
Device information. These are data from your computer or mobile device, such as the type of hardware and software you are using (for example, your operating system and browser type), as well as unique device identifiers for devices that are using our software.
Cookies are small text files stored on your Device and used to deliver personalized content and remember logins and account settings. The Company may Cookies and similar technologies, including tracking pixels and web beacons, to collect usage and analytic data that helps us provide our Application to you, as well as to help deliver ads for relevant products and services to you when you visit certain pages on the Application and then visit certain third-party sites.
A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a page of the Application or our emails that is usually invisible to the user and allows application operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular page or an email. Company may use Web Beacons on the Application and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information. They are a technique that the Company may use to compile aggregated statistics about Application usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a number, time and date of a page or email view and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Cookies or modifying your Device settings to notify you each time a Cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Cookies on an individual basis.
We may use third-party vendors, including Google, who use first-party Cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party Cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past activity on the Application, including Google Analytics for Display Advertising. The information collected may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity. If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you can install an opt-out in your web browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/) and/or opt out from Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network by using Google’s Ads Settings (www.google.com/settings/ads).
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Application and on websites of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Application and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to develop application content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
Additional Terms for Mobile Device Users
A. Geo-Location Information.
Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using the Application, except that it may be possible for Company to determine from an IP address the geographic location of your point of connectivity, in which case we may gather and use such general location data.
B. Push Notifications.
C. Mobile Analytics.
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. This software may record information, such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally-Identifying Information you submit within the mobile application.
D. Social Media
We may use hyperlinks on the Application which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Instagram’s “follow” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated, and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Application, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Application. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the website or applications of these social networks and are not within our control.
COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person. Company may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about Application users.
