In this privacy policy ("Policy"), we describe how we collect, use, and disclose information that we obtain about visitors to our website on (the "Site"), through our mobile app for the Android operating system (the "App") and through the services available on our Site and in our App (collectively, the "Services"). We are the operators of these Services ("us", "we" or "our").
By visiting or using our Site, App or Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Policy, and you hereby agree that your personal information will be handled as described below. Your use of our Site, App and Services, and any dispute over privacy resulting from that use, is subject to this Policy.
This Policy covers our treatment of the information that we gather when you are accessing or using our Site, App or Services. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.
Information we collect about you
We may collect information about you both directly from you and automatically through your use of our Services.
Information we collect automatically: Some pieces of information are transmitted to us by the software application that you use to access our Services, e.g. your web browser or our App.
Server logs: Whenever using any of our Services, we may automatically collect your IP address, the date and time you accessed certain features, and your user-agent string. The latter may contain information regarding your web browser and operating system, including the name and the version number. When accessing our Site, certain pieces of information are transmitted to us by your web browser, additionally. They include the addresses (URLs) of the single pages that you view within our Site, links that you click on within our Site and the referring site (URL) that you visited before opening a particular page on our Site. These pieces of information are automatically received and recorded in the log files of our servers.
Information you provide to us: We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us when using our Services, usually by filling out form fields. You can choose not to provide us with those pieces of information, but if you do so, you may not be able to access or use the related features.
Registration: Certain parts and features of our Services may require prior registration. In order to register, you must provide your email address and a password. In addition to that, you may have to provide your name and date of birth as well. Although required for those parts and features, registration is otherwise optional.
Cookies: Cookies are text files that contain a small amount of data. They are transferred to your computer or device through your web browser or our App and may contain anonymous unique identifiers. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but if you wish, you can modify your browser settings to either block cookies completely or block "third-party cookies" only. These changes affect the future usage of cookies only. You can, however, clear all existing cookies in your web browser at once, usually. Please refer to your web browser's manual or help section for further guidance.
Cookies from us: We use cookies and similar tracking mechanisms to collect information about your use of our Site. This allows us to identify you during a session of being logged in into our Site, while you are moving through our Site and accessing single web pages. If you disable cookies on our Site, some features may not be available or may not work correctly.
Cookies from third parties: We may also engage third parties that show advertisements or analyze user activity on our Site. Such third parties may transmit "third-party cookies" to your computer or device. This Policy does not cover such third parties' use of cookies. Please refer to their respective privacy policies.
Analysis of user activity: When we collect usage information for statistics, such as the number of visitors to our Site, we use this data in aggregate form only, and not in any manner that would identify you personally.
Google AdSense: Our Site uses Google AdSense, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"), that serves automatic text or media advertisements. Google AdSense uses cookies and collects information about advertisements that are displayed and may be clicked by you. The data generated about your use of our Site, along with your IP address, will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
How we share your information
We may share the information that we collect about you, including personally identifiable information, with some third parties in a limited fashion. If we do so, we will disclose no more information than necessary and do so not more often than needed.
Agents: From time to time, we may share information we have collected from you with third-party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents if those perform functions on our behalf. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the information that we share about you beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Research, analysis and advertisers: Anonymized or aggregate information about users may be shared with third parties for marketing, advertising, research or other similar purposes.
Legal processes: We may disclose the information that we have collected about you, when necessary, in order to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, a court order, or some other legal process.
User submissions and profiles: Certain user profile information, including a user's name, and any text or image content that such user has provided to us through our Services, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction or address your request for our Services. Any content that you insert into your public user profile and content that you voluntarily disclose in a manner other users can view becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
Business transfers: If we are acquired by or merged with another company, or if all or substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company, if there is some other change of control, if we go out of business or if we enter bankruptcy, we may transfer the information that we have collected about you to the other company or party.
Protection of ourselves and others: We may disclose the information that we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to prevent, investigate or take action against illegal activities, suspected fraud, potential threats to the safety of any person or violations of this Policy. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.
With your consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your information may be shared with third parties in personally identifiable form, and you will be able to prevent such sharing of this information.
How we use your information
We use the information that we gather about you to provide our Services to you, to communicate with you about your use of the Services, to provide customer service and respond to inquiries, to personalize our Services, to improve the Services through analysis and research, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, and for marketing and promotional purposes.
Third-party websites, apps and services
Our Services may contain links and references to other websites, apps and services. Any access to and use of those is not governed by this Policy but by their own respective privacy policies, which we are not responsible for. Please read those privacy policies thoroughly as well.
Your choices
You can always opt not to disclose certain information to us, but keep in mind that some information may be needed for us to be able to provide the Services to you. You may decide not to disclose those pieces of information to us, either, but please note that you may not be able to use the related Services under those circumstances.
Children under 13
Our Services do not address anyone under the age of 13 and are not designed for those. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our systems. If you are under 13, please do not continue using our Services and do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to us. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us via email as described below.
Security of your information
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information about you that we hold in our records from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures can guarantee perfect and absolute security. Hardware or software failure as well as other factors may compromise the security of user information.
You must prevent unauthorized access to your account for our Services, if any, by protecting it appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device.
