2. Collection of Information
(a) Information You Provide. Autosnap generally collects PII that you voluntarily provide. For instance, when you register for those portions of our Sites that may require registration, make a purchase, participate in our social networking features, or other electronic services, or send us an email or feedback, you may be asked to provide information such as your e-mail address, name, phone number, shipping address, and billing information, and we will collect such information as well as any other content you provide us in engaging in any of the above activities. Information such as your age, gender, hobbies or interests may also be requested. If you elect to post material to any blogs, forums, participate in our social networking features or other community boards that may be offered on our Sites, then such materials will be collected and may be publicly available for others to view.
(b) Cookies and other technologies.
(ii) Some of our third party partners (including advertisers and marketing services companies) may set and access cookies and similar technologies on your computer as well, or we may do so on their behalf. We do not have control over how these third parties use such cookies and similar technologies or the information derived therefrom.
(iv) Some of our emails may contain tags that allow us and our advertisers and other partners to determine the types of content that may be of interest to you. Those tags may contain PII and may be shared with others to the same extent indicated in Section 4.
(c) IP Address. Your Internet Protocol ("IP") address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another Web site or a search engine); the pages you visit on our Sites, the websites you visit after this website; the ads you see; the ads you click on; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this website or a referral site; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, gather broad demographic information, and administer our Sites. We may also link this information with your PII when we feel that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules and policies or terms of service or to protect our Sites, customers or others.
(d) Location Information. We may, and may enable our advertisers to, collect your location via certain services we provide through digital applications, wireless access protocol services ("WAP Services") or mobile phone service ("Mobile Services"). We, or the service provider, will inform you of such collection at the time you use the service. By using such service, you hereby consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your location information as described.
(f) Tracking Requests. Autosnap does not act on Do Not Track requests from your browser because, this way, we are able to personalize your experience on our sites and tailor content to your interests.
3. Use of Information.
(a) Autosnap uses information we collect from you in part to provide you with the service you have requested. We also use your information to identify you as a user, improve our Sites and services, send you administrative notifications, and respond to your inquiries. We might also send out e-mails to users to announce special offers, services and announcements from our Sites, our partners and/or our advertisers. We also use information in connection with advertising and to serve other content, as described in section 4(d) below.
(b) We may combine and use any and all information we collect on you either online or otherwise, including from third parties, for marketing purposes.
(c) In addition, we may use information you provide us through emails, Q&A, blogs, forums, in response to polls, or through any other user generated submission for editorial purposes, and may use your name and any stories you provide us in articles published online. If you provide us with personal anecdotes, they may be attributed to you.
(d) We may create Anonymous Information from PII by excluding information (such as your name) that make the data personally identifiable to you. We use this Anonymous Information for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in our sole discretion.
4. Disclosure of Your Information
(a) In addition to the other disclosures described in this policy, Autosnap may (and you authorize us to) share or disclose PII about you to other companies or individuals in the following situations:
(i) If we utilize third party service providers to provide products, services or functions on our behalf (such as sending emails or processing credit cards or fulfilling subscriptions), and ask these service providers to agree to maintain the confidentiality of your PII and not to use your PII for any reason except to carry out the purpose(s) for which we hired them ("Service Provider Exception")..
(ii) The entity to whom the information is disclosed is an Affiliate of Autosnap.
(iii) In accordance with your indicated preferences (e.g., you indicated you wanted to receive promotional materials directly from a third party partner).
(iv) The entity is a third party who wants to promote goods and services we think would be of interest to you.
(v) You have furnished us PII with the intent that it be forwarded to a third party for use in connection with a specified service you are electing to participate in (examples include, without limitation, e-commerce partners etc. )
(d) Delivery of Advertising and Other Content.
(i) In addition to ads and content that we serve you directly, we use third-party advertising companies and marketing services companies to serve ads and other content when you visit our Sites and elsewhere on the internet and in other media. Both these companies and we may use information about your visits to this Site and elsewhere to serve ads and other content to you. In the course of doing so, a unique third-party cookie may be placed or recognized on your browser by such companies. In addition, these companies and we may use Web beacons to help manage our online advertising and content. These Web beacons enable us and the third-party companies to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits this site and to learn which banner ads bring users to our website and to serve you ads that you may find of interest elsewhere on the internet and in other media. Both Autosnap and these companies may use information obtained from your visits to the Sites (including your status as a customer of Autosnap), other websites, and information received from you offline in order to provide advertisements about goods and services and other content of interest to you across the internet and in other media.
(ii) In addition, we may provide PII and Anonymous Information to marketing services companies. This may include information we received from you offline or online. These companies may combine information we provide (including PII and Anonymous Information) with personal and anonymous information they may have about you, using cookies they place or that we place on their behalf, as described in Section 2(b). We require these companies to delete the PII we provide them. These companies may use the resulting non-personal information and such cookies for their own marketing purposes, and they may provide the same to their customers for their customer's marketing purposes.
5. Security of Your Personally Identifiable Information We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your PII from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We also require you to enter a password to access your registration information. Please do not disclose your registration password to unauthorized people. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Autosnap uses reasonable efforts to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
