This Policy applies to information you provide to us or that we collect automatically when you visit, access, use, or register with one or more Apps and when you interact with App content or applications that may link to or be accessible from or on the App that are provided or managed by a third party. This Policy does not apply to information we collect when you visit or use the Company's Website or otherwise, such as when you communicate with us through email, text, or other electronic means.
This Policy will tell you:
When you visit or use our Apps we may collect or receive information about you as described in this Policy. Some Apps may also make use of third-party Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixels, dynamic tags, and/or other technical means, which may allow third parties to collect information about you and your activities on the App and provide you, or enable others to provide you, with certain functionality or advertising.
Information You Provide Directly. You may provide information to us when you use our Apps, including when you download, register with, or log into our Apps. This information may include, but is not limited to, your Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") including, name, email address, phone number, mailing or billing address, device ID, username and password, registration ID number, and other information that may identify you. You may also provide Non-Personal Information ("NPI"), such as terms used for searches within Apps, responses to questions, schedules, bookmarks, notes, content viewed, features used, and other information about your activities within and usage of the Apps. Unless otherwise noted within an App or in this Policy, any information you provide through the App may be transmitted to or stored by the Company and/or its third-party providers.
Certain information you provide when you use our Apps and their respective features may be stored locally on your mobile device. The scope of information you may store locally on your mobile device varies by App. While the Company does not transmit information stored locally on your mobile device through use of our Apps, please be aware that any information stored on your mobile device may leave your mobile device through automatic backup processes, manual download from your mobile device, and through other means outside of the Company's control. In addition, your activities on your mobile device outside of the Apps may result in such information being transmitted to or otherwise collected by authorized or unauthorized third-parties, including through the other apps you access, the websites you visit, and by parties who may gain unauthorized access to your mobile device or data. Any information stored on your mobile device or transmitted over the Internet or any data network could be accessed or intercepted by unauthorized third parties. As a result, you acknowledge that the Company cannot assure that the information you submit through the Apps or store locally on your mobile device will remain private. Any data you provide or store locally through the Apps is at your own risk.
Information We Collect Automatically. If you download, access, or use our Apps, we may receive and store certain information about you and your mobile device(s) automatically using automatic data collection technologies, including but not limited to first- and third-party Cookies, log files, Web Beacons, Pixels, dynamic tag management and other technical means. This information may include:
We may use the information we collect or receive about you to:
Our Apps use automatic data collection technologies including first- and third-party Cookies, log files, Web Beacons, Pixels, dynamic tags, and other technical means. We may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services in order to deliver content and advertising tailored to your interests, both on our Apps and on third-party applications (including but not limited to search engines and social media applications).
The third parties who provide us with third-party Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixels, dynamic tags, and other tracking technologies, may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the App in order to provide you with advertising based on your use of the App and to track performance of their advertising. Third parties may have the ability to link the information they collect about you when you use the App with other information they collect about you elsewhere on the Internet, including but not limited to your PII or information about the mobile device you are using. Third parties may also collect information about your online or application activities over time and across different websites, applications, and other online services.
We may share your information with our subsidiaries and corporate affiliates, as well as entities that provide services to us, including companies that provide payment processing, conference registration, app analytics, data processing, IT services including app development and maintenance, and other services. We may also disclose without restriction NPI or aggregate, anonymous information to third-party service providers without restriction.
Disclosure of Information to Third-Party Vendors and Service Providers. The Company may engage third-party vendors and service providers to provide services in connection with our Apps and to help us manage our digital presence and allow us to better serve our users.
In addition, some of the content and services on our Apps, including advertisements, are served by third-parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and technology and application providers. We may share PII, NPI, or other information (including, without limitation, the number of times an advertisement has been serviced, click information, and geographic limitations) with such third-parties as necessary so that they may provide the services for which they have been engaged.
When Required By Law. We may disclose your information to third parties when required to protect and defend our legal rights, protect the safety and security of our users, prevent fraud, comply with the law or respond to legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity.
Corporate Transactions. In the event of sale, transfer, merger, reorganization, dissolution, or similar event we may transfer your information to one or more third parties as part of that transaction.
With Your Consent. We may share your information with other third parties when you consent to such sharing.
The Company has implemented reasonable security measures designed to protect the information collected via our Apps from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Access to data and technology relating to user information is password-protected and limited to authorized personnel and those vendors that require access to the information in order to furnish services to the Company. In addition, the Company uses industry standard technology to keep users' information secure while residing on the Company's servers. However, despite these measures, our IT systems could be compromised by parties seeking unauthorized access to our data or users' data, by a technological malfunction or by an error by an employee, vendor or contractor. In addition, the transmission of information via the Internet or mobile data networks could be intercepted by third parties. As a result, our efforts to protect our data and users' data from unauthorized access may be unsuccessful and we cannot assure you that the security measures we have adopted will provide absolute certainty. By using, accessing or registering with the Apps, you agree that the Company is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort arising from or relating to any breach of our security, circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures, or interception of your transmissions. Any transmission by you is at your own risk.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to our Apps or certain functions within our Apps, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
The Company is based in the United States and, regardless of where you use our Apps, the information collected as part of that use will be transferred to and maintained on servers located in the United States. Any information we obtain about you will be stored in accordance with U.S. privacy laws, regulations, and standards, which may not be equivalent to the laws in your country of residence. By using our Apps, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in the United States in accordance with the foregoing.
We reserve the right to update or modify our Apps or this Policy at any time and from time to time without prior notice. Any revisions to this Policy will be effective upon posting. You should review this Policy periodically to ensure you are aware of any changes. If you object to any changes to this Policy, you must cease using our Apps. Please review this Policy periodically by visiting the App or the applicable App Store or Google Play Store. This Policy was last updated on the date indicated at the top of this page. Your continued use of our Apps after any changes or revisions to this Policy indicates your agreement to the terms of the revised Policy.
If you have any questions or concerns relating to this Policy or our privacy practices, please contact us as at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aggregate Information. Non-Personal Information, or Personally Identifiable Information that has been de-identified, and that is combined with similar data related to more than one individual to form aggregated information. Companies may use aggregate data or share it with third parties so that the information and services provided best meet the needs of their users. Aggregate Information also helps advertisers and sponsors know how effectively they are reaching and meeting the needs of their target audience.
App(s). See Section 1.
Cookie. A small data file that is stored on the mobile device you use to view an App. Cookies are placed by the application ("first-party") or by a third-party with a presence on the application ("third-party"), such as an advertiser using a Web Beacon, and are generally accessed only by the party or application that placed the Cookie on the mobile device (i.e., a Cookie placed on your mobile device by the Company is generally not accessed by any other application you use but a Cookie placed on your mobile device by an advertiser may be accessed by any application on which that same advertiser has a presence). Cookies can contain pieces of Personally Identifiable Information. Cookies often are used to make the application easier to use. For example, if you check a box to ask that we store your username on your mobile device so that you do not have to enter it each time you visit the site, this can be stored in a locally accessible Cookie on your mobile device. Cookies may be persistent (meaning that they are saved on your mobile device even after you close the application and may be accessed at a later time) or non-persistent (meaning that they are deleted when you close the application). Cookies may be "essential" for the use of an application, such as for example session-id cookies, authentication cookies or user centric security cookies, or "non-essential" for the use of an application, such as for example, third-party advertising cookies or other tracking cookies.
Non-Personal Information ("NPI"). Information that may relate to an individual but does not by itself identify that individual. For example, information such as gender, age, city, and physical location, mobile device ID and call information, information regarding the type of mobile device and operating system you use, your IP address, information regarding your Internet or mobile service provider, terms used for searches within Apps, responses to questions, schedules, bookmarks, notes, and other information about your activities within and usage of the Apps or webpages you visit before and after using our Apps, when not linked with other Personally Identifiable Information. NPI may be "re-identified" through certain processes by linking it to PII relating to the same individual.
Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). Information that identifies or is uniquely associated with an individual, such as a name, tax payer identification number, home address, telephone number, email address, Social Security number, or credit card number.
Web Beacons or Pixels (also often referred to as "clear GIFs," "pixel tags," "1-by-1 GIFs," "Single-Pixel GIFs," "1 x 1 Pixels" or "clear Pixels"). Pages of our Apps and our emails may contain small electronic files known as Web Beacons that permit us and/or third parties to collect information during your use of the Apps. For example, Web Beacons may be used to count the number of users who have visited a page of our App or opened an email and for other related application statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain application content and verifying system and server integrity). Web Beacons send information back to their home Server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser, or some other third party) from the users' application, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, hardware identification information (depending on the type of mobile device that is accessing the application), and information stored in any Cookies on the users' mobile device previously placed by that Server. Web Beacons can also be used to place a Cookie on an application or device. Third parties who provide us with Web Beacons or Pixels may have the ability to link the information they collect about you when you use our Apps with other information they collect about you elsewhere on the Internet, including but not limited to your PII or information about the mobile device you are using.
