The Service collects information from you in two ways: directly from your input and automatically through the Service’s technologies.
a. Information provided by you
b. Information Collected Automatically
We may use and disclose automatically collected information for any purpose, except where we are restricted by applicable law. If we combine any automatically collected information with personal information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal information.
We may also use aggregated information for any purpose, however, this information does not identify specific individuals and so is not personal information.
c. Cookies and Web Beacons
In general, cookies, web beacons and similar technologies do not contain personally identifiable information, but when you furnish your personal information through the Service, this information may be linked to the non-personally identifiable data stored in cookies sent to your browser from the Service.
Appriss and its service providers use these technologies for various purposes, including: facilitating the login process, administering, customizing and improving the Service, personalizing the browsing experience, serving relevant advertising, advertising, promotions and surveys, reporting, and tracking and analyzing user preferences and trends.
There are a number of ways to manage cookies. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. However, if you block cookies, you may not be able to register, login or make full use of the Service. You can also use your mobile device’s settings to manage the available privacy options.
Our HTML-formatted emails may contain a web beacon to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users, to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate how many users have clicked on their advertisements. The web beacon will be deleted when you delete the email. Emails in plain text rather than HTML will not include the web beacon.
We use the personal information collected through the Service to complete various actions:
We may on occasion also match or combine the personal information that you provide with information that we obtain from other sources or that is already in our records, whether collected online or offline, for the purposes described above.
We may use a third party advertising provider to serve ads when you visit the Service. In the course of serving advertisements, the third party advertising provider may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. The third party advertising provider may use information about your visits to the Service and other websites in order to provide advertisements on the Service and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you. The third party advertising provider may use information about your visits to the Service and other websites to measure the effectiveness of ads. We do not disclose any personally identifiable information to the third party advertising provider.
We share your personal information in the following ways:
Change in Corporate Circumstances. If Appriss, the Service or a related asset or line of business is acquired by, transferred to or merged with another company, your personal information may be disclosed to the prospective or actual purchasers. The Service also may provide access to social media features, message boards, chat, forums, blogs, profile pages and other services to which you are able to post personal information and materials. Any information you post or disclose through these services is public. Please be careful when disclosing personal information in these public areas.
When you connect to the social network account through the Service for the first time or otherwise make the Service interact with your social network account, you will be asked to permit the social network to share your personal information stored on such social network with the Service. We collect your information from your social network account only in accordance with your privacy settings you have set up under your social network accounts.
Accordingly we only collect such information which you allowed the social network(s) to share with third parties (such as your name, email address, list of friends, profile picture, other information you make publicly available via the applicable social network). You understand that the Service may access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the third party social network and authorized by you) such information so that it is available on and through your account. For example, Appriss may allow you to share your location with your Facebook friends, via the Service.
Please note that certain information which you have defined as private on your third party social network accounts may become public to other users of the Service if you have defined such information to be public on the Service. For example, if you designate your social network username as “private” in your social network account (to the extent possible under said settings), but have elected to set your Service account settings as public, then the username will become public on the Service.
