Data Use. We respect the privacy of those who use our Licensed Software. Users should understand, however, that by the very nature of the medium, their communications with us, such as, e.g., by e-mail, reveals potentially identifying information, such as, e.g., their e-mail address. The information we receive, and how we use it, depends on what is done when using the Licensed Software. We collect and use your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information. We take reasonable steps to keep the personal information we possess accurate and to delete incorrect or unnecessary personal information.
Further, applications in use may contact our servers periodically, for example to check for updates or to send us information relating to service usage and gather non-personal information.
Because non-personal information cannot identify you or be tied to you in any way, there are few restrictions on the ways that we can use or share non-personal information. Primarily, we will use this data to make enhancements to the Licensed Software which are specifically tailored to improve the experience of the user community. One way that we use non-personal information is to demonstrate user trends in using the Licensed Software. Often, this is done by aggregating the data gleaned from non-personal information. This aggregated, de-identified data might be shared with outside parties who are employed to implement improvements.
In some places using the Licensed Software you have the opportunity to send us personal information about yourself.
We also maintain records of your consents, preferences and settings relating to, for example, location data, marketing and sharing of personal information.
We maintain records of your purchases, downloads, the content you have provided us with, your requests, agreements between you and us, the products and services provided to you, payment and delivery details, your contacts and communications and other interactions and engagements with us. We may, in accordance with applicable law, record your communication with our customer care or with other such contact points.
We also utilize location-based services and establish location through the use of satellite, mobile, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (“BLE”) or other network based positioning methods. These technologies may involve exchanging your location data and unique device and mobile, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or other network related identifiers with us. Our products may operate on multiple device platforms, applications and services which may also collect your location data. When you use our location based services and features, your location data is sent to us to serve you with the right content. We do not use this information to identify you personally without your consent.
We also obtain information from industry partners and a variety of other sources, including publicly available sources such as business registries. We require these sources to comply with applicable laws with regard to collecting and transferring this data to us, including ensuring that there is a legal basis for the transfer or anonymizing the data in accordance with applicable laws prior to disclosure of the data to us.
We may process your personal information for the following purposes. One or more purposes may apply simultaneously.
Our legal basis for processing your personal information is dependent on the purpose for processing. In general, we process your personal information under the following legal bases, and one or more bases may apply simultaneously:
We commit that we will not share your personal information collected from the Licensed Software with an unrelated third party without your permission or as otherwise discussed following and below.
Please note: In addition to the ways that we may keep, use, disclose, and process personal information described herein, we also may keep, disclose, and use personal information that you give us in ways that we believe are consistent with federal, state and local governmental guidance, directions, regulations, and laws.
We endeavor to only collect personal information that is necessary for the purposes for which it is collected, and to retain such for no longer than is necessary for such purposes. The length of time personal information is retained, and criteria for determining that time, are dependent on the nature of the personal information and the purpose for which it was provided. For example, for your personal information related to managing your account, such as name, email address, and account content and preferences, are maintained for as long as they are retained by you within your account and for a period of time thereafter to allow you to re-activate your account without a loss of information. Other data, such as records of your activity within the application, are typically maintained only for a short period before being anonymized or pseudonymized. We may also retain your personal information as necessary to maintain logs and business records for analysis, security, and/or audit purposes, comply with record retention requirements under the law, work to deal with any complaints regarding your use of our products and services, and comply with our legal obligations, protect or defend our rights, resolve disputes and enforce our contracts.
You have a right to know what personal information we hold about you, and to access it. You have a right to have incomplete, incorrect, unnecessary or outdated personal information updated. You have the right to request that your personal information be erased, and to obtain a copy of your data in a machine-readable format. You have the right to object to or restrict processing in certain circumstances, such as where you believe the data is inaccurate or the processing activity is unlawful. You have a right to unsubscribe from direct marketing messages and to request that we stop processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes or on other compelling legal grounds. However, if you opt-out from marketing and other communications from us, critical alerts may still be sent to you. You may exercise your rights by contacting us or by managing your account and choices through available profile management tools on your device and our services. In some cases, especially if you wish us to delete or stop processing your personal information, this may also mean that we may not be able to continue to provide the services to you. Applicable data protection law may provide certain restrictions on the extent to which these rights may be exercised. If a restriction applies, we will respond to your request with an explanation of what action will be taken, to the extent required under applicable data protection law.
