This policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control or to individuals whom we do not employ or manage. Nor does this policy apply to information you choose to disclose publicly on the Services (such as information that other Services users can see), which is not considered Personal Information.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our Services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Services. When you download, register with or use the Services, we may ask you provide information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card number, geolocation, mobile device identification number, or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline, or that is about you but individually does not identify you. This information may includes: (i) Information that you provide by filling in forms on the Service. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use the Services, subscribing to our Service, posting material, and requesting further Services. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with the Services; (ii) records and copies of your correspondence (including e-mail addresses and phone numbers), if you contact us; (iii) Your responses to surveys that we might ask you to complete for research purposes; (iv) Details of transactions you carry out through the Services and of the fulfillment of your orders (note that you may be required to provide financial information before placing an order through the App); and (v) Your search queries on the Services. You may be able to access features of the Services by using your Facebook or other social media accounts. Your privacy settings on your Facebook or other social media accounts, as well as the social media companies’ respective privacy policies, will determine the personal and other information that may be shared with us when you access the Services.
Social Media Plug-ins
Third Party Chat-Bots
We may integrate with third party chat-bot programs (“Chat-Bots“) from third party social networks, such as Facebook. Chat-Bots may transfer information between the third party and our servers. This information may include ant messages you type to that third party. Interacting with a Chat-Bot will transmit information directly from that social network and that information may be visible by us on our servers. You agree that we will not be held responsible for any information you transmit via a Chat-Bot we are associated with.
We collect the following types of information from our users:
Personal Information You Provide Us:
We receive and store any information you provide us. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, credit-card information, email address, phone number, IP address and browser information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. We use the Personal Information you provide to enhance your user experience.
Information Collected Automatically:
Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device platform, including your location, IP address, “cookie” information and the page you requested.
We may place, or allow our technology and advertising partners to place, “cookies” and “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, 1-by-1 GIFs, and web bugs) on your device, which are identifiers transferred to your device through your browser that allow us to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our or our advertising partners’ sites are visited, advertisements viewed, by how many people and to engage in other reporting. These identifiers do not contain Personal Information about you. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser to prevent or limit your computer’s acceptance of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of our Services.
When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of users on our application), we only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate data tells us how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing to as many users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners and clients, which allows them to understand how often people use their services and our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal user experience. We never disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We may also collect the following information regarding use of the Services:
- Usage Details. When you access and use the Services, we may automatically collect certain details of your access to and use of the Serviecs, including traffic data, location data, logs and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on or through the Services.
- Device Information. We may collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device’s unique device identifier, IP address, operating system, browser type, mobile network information and the device’s telephone number.
- Stored Information and Files. The Services also may access metadata, tags and other information associated with other files stored on your device. This may include, for example, photographs, audio and video clips, personal contacts and address book information.
- Location Information. The Services may collect real-time information about the location of your device.
We also may use technologies to collect information about your usage of the Services over time.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us, indicating whether the email has been opened and whether links in the email have been clicked. This confirmation helps us make emails more interesting and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, indicate your preference during the registration process, by modifying your account settings accordingly or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Children’s Privacy Issues
We do not intend to and do not want to collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Any use of the Services by children under the age of 13 should be conducted under the supervision of that child’s parent or guardian. Information should not be submitted to the Service by anyone under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. If we learn that a user under 13 years of age has submitted personally identifiable information online, we will take reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law). We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
Third Party Services
When you use the Services or its content, certain third parties may use automatic information collection technologies to collect information about you or your device. These third parties may include: advertisers, ad networks and ad servers, analytics companies, your mobile device manufacturer, your mobile service provider, etc. These third parties may use tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use this Services. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites, apps and other online services or websites. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
Location Based Services
The Services include location-based applications that determine your location based on your wireless network location or WiFi access points that you are in range of. Your location information will only be used to provide the Service(s). We do not and will not track your location, and any request you make to determine your location will not be paired with any information that identifies you personally.
Third-party applications and the Services may expose user locations in broad and creative ways and may permit you to make your information publicly available and accessible by everyone on the Internet. You can control whether your activity via the Services is broadcast to third parties through your privacy settings and by not using third party services or applications that make your information publicly available and accessible.

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form only as described below.
