3. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect Personal Information in connection with our Services. When we use the term "Personal Information" we are referring to information that can be used to identify an individual and may include, but is not limited to, your first and last name, by itself or combined with your unique user ID, password, gender, date of birth, address, email address, your brand preferences, your Facebook, Twitter or other social media handles, your geographic location if you are accessing the Services from a GPS-enabled mobile device, any other personal profile or account information you choose to submit through our Services, and (if applicable) your company name and business contact information. Slidejoy or its third party payment transactions services provider may also collect credit, debit or other billing account information. You may always choose not to provide Personal Information, but this may prevent you from receiving certain Services. For example, in order to set up an End User account, you must provide a valid email address so that you can login and so that we can contact you pertaining important account activity. If you do not complete the account signup process, we will not be able to display Ad Content on your lockscreen and you will not be able to collect or redeem Reward Points.
If you choose to use our Site’s social networking function to post information to Facebook, Twitter or another social networking site, we may collect your user ID and password information for that social networking site as necessary to make it easier for you to log in to the Services or interact with your social networks in other ways (for example, to share Ad Content with your friends on those social networks).
Specifically, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Services may allow users to access "Facebook Connect" to interact with friends and to share on Facebook while using Slidejoy. Should you choose to use the Facebook Connect feature, Slidejoy may collect certain information about you from your Facebook account, which will be specified at the time you first agree to sign in using Facebook Connect. You can edit privacy settings for posts that appear on Facebook or disconnect the Facebook Connect service by using the privacy tools provided through Facebook.
Slidejoy may also collect your telephone number, which we may use to verify users and prevent duplicative accounts.
Slidejoy may also collect non-Personal Information (aggregate, non-individually identifiable or demographic information). An example of non-Personal Information is system-related information such as IP addresses, click-through and other Application and Site use information (for example, we typically track each time you click on Ad Content from your mobile device lockscreen), browser and browser speed, bandwidth of your Internet connectivity, general location of your server and the pages of our Site or Application that were viewed during a visit. We use this information to manage End User and Advertise accounts and for internal purposes to help us diagnose problems, monitor traffic patterns and otherwise continually improve our Services.
Please note that the Services may provide links to third party sites, such as links to the websites of Advertisers and other third-party organizations, businesses, and merchants who have agreed to make Ad Content and offers available to End Users through Slidejoy (including, but not limited to Outbrain, Inc.
). We are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or the content of websites owned by others that you may link to or that may be linked from the Services. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of service of those websites so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share any Personal Information.
4. USE OF PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Any geolocation data will be collected from your mobile device only with your express opt-in consent, and such data will be used for the purpose of delivering customized services, such as displaying Ad Content featuring offers only available to End Users in particular cities or regions, determining the number of Reward Points to offer End Users, or identifying a segment of End Users which Advertisers have requested as an audience for viewing of particular Ad Content; however, Advertisers will not have direct access to your location and will not be able to view your location on a map.
5. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you are an End User, in order to effectively manage the Services, your non-Personal Information (including, without limitation, de-identified, aggregated Personal Information) will be disclosed to Advertisers to facilitate such account-related activities and to manage and improve our Services. We may also disclose your Personal Information to Advertisers, with your express opt-in consent, where such sharing is required to deliver products or services that you have requested (including but not limited to facilitating your receipt or acceptance of offers or fulfillment or redemption of offers).
In addition, we may disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our Site, marketing of our products and services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics).
We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues. We may also disclose non-Personal Information to our clients, business partners, merchants, advertisers, investors, potential buyers and other third parties if we deem such disclosure, in our sole discretion, to have sound business reasons or justifications. We do NOT sell, rent, share or trade your Personal Information to third parties for their own marketing purposes unless you have granted us permission to do so.
Please note also that if you choose to use our social networking function to post information to Facebook, Twitter or another social networking site, anyone who has access to your information through that other site will be able to see your information.
6. ACCESSING AND UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you use our Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance accessing or changing your Personal Information or if you would like to have your Personal Information deleted. Please be aware that if you delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use the Services, Application or Site. Also, even if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may need to retain certain information for a limited period of time to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements.
7. COOKIES AND AUTOMATIC INFORMATION GATHERING TECHNOLOGIES
We and our Advertisers, authorized service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks may use various activity tracking technologies, such as cookies, pixels and web beacons, to collect information from any computer or mobile device you use to access the Services about your activities on our Site or interaction with our advertisements (see “Information Collected by Third Parties” below).
We may use other standard Internet activity tracking technologies, such as web beacons and similar technologies, to track your use on our Site, Application or your interactions with Ad Content. A web beacon is a programming code used to display an image on a web page and can also transfer an individual's user identification to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about the individual. Such information may be used in targeted or behavioral advertising, as well as for the other uses described in this paragraph. We may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters or online advertisements to determine whether messages have been opened or acted upon. We may use the information we obtain in this manner to customize the Services, Ad Content and offers we provide to users via our Site and Application, to deliver targeted advertisements through such vehicles, and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities. We do not tie web beacons to any Personal Information you submit while on our Site.
Information Collected by Third Parties: Targeted or Behavioral Advertising.
Targeted advertising (also known as behavioral advertising) uses information collected on an individual's web browsing or mobile application behavior, such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made to target advertising to the user based on this behavior. This information is then used to select which Slidejoy advertising should be displayed to a particular individual on websites or mobile applications other than the Site or Application. For example, if you have shown a preference for a certain product while visiting the Site, you may be served an advertisement from or about the Site for the same or a similar product when you visit a site other than the Slidejoy Site. The information collected is only linked to an anonymous cookie ID (alphanumeric number); it does not include any information that could be linked back to a particular person, such as their name, address or credit card number. The information used for targeted advertising either comes from the Site, the Application or through third party website publishers.
In addition, we may place (or allow third parties to place) cookies and pixels on our Site or Application which enable our authorized service providers, advertising companies and advertising networks to collect information about our users who view or interact with their or our advertisements on our Site or Application or complete certain actions on our site, such as submitting an application or registration form. However, we do not tie these cookies and pixels to personal information that you submit on our Site or Application. The information collected by the cookies and pixels allows us and the companies mentioned above to deliver, and gauge the effectiveness of, targeted advertisements, both on our site and when you are browsing other websites. Some of these third-party advertising companies may be advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (www.networkadvertising.org), which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.
7. OUR POLICY ON MINORS
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under 18 years of age. Nor do we authorize users who are less than 18 years old to use the Services (including, without limitation, the Application and Site). If we learn from the individual or from the individual’s parent or legal guardian that we have collected Personal Information about a person under the age of 18, we will make efforts to delete their Personal Information from our systems within a commercially reasonable period of time.
8. INFORMATION SECURITY
We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. For example, industry-standard encryption (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure a/k/a “https”) is used to protect communications between our servers and our users’ web browsers and mobile devices. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
9. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes ("California Customer") is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of Personal Information, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom Personal Information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of Personal Information that were disclosed.
We will not share Personal Information about you with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure - typically by opting in to receive information from a third party through our Site.
California Customers may request further information about our compliance with California's privacy law by e-mailing email@example.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.
10. PUBLIC MESSAGE BOARDS AND OTHER ONLINE FORUMS
Please note that when you choose to post messages and/or profile content on messages boards and other online forums that we may make available on our Site or Application, such content is viewable by third parties and, in the case of public online forums and any public profiles, is publicly viewable. Accordingly, you should exercise discretion with regard to what Personal Information you post on our Site or Application and you should not post highly confidential or sensitive information. Slidejoy is not responsible for how third parties who view your Personal Information may use this information (such as to send you unsolicited messages).
