Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (“Users”)

By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to display content, including images, comments and other materials (collectively, “User Content”) on the Poplsate Screen and withing the Popslate Application. The intent of the images displayed on the Popslate Screen may be decorative or to convey textual and/or numerical information, and these images are collectively referred to as “Pop Images”.

You also understand and agree that the Service by default automatically shares User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use (which can be found at http://popslate.com/development/terms_of_use.

Your privacy is important to us. At Popslate we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t store personal information unless required for the on-going operation of our Service.
We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information you share with us.

Information We Collect

You may provide us information, and we may collect information from your use of our Service.

Information You Give to Us

Your name, email, shipping address, and credit card information, along with any other information a financial institution would need to process the transaction, if you make or attempt to make an online purchase of a Popslate product.
Your username, password and e-mail address when you register for a Popslate account.
Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., picture, description).
User Content (e.g., Pop Images, comments, and other materials) that you post to the Service.
Communications between you and Popslate. For example, you may contact us using your email for a customer support question.
Your responses to surveys that we may invite you to complete for research purposes.
Information We Get from Your Use of Our Service

Popslate device-specific logs. These logs may, for example, include your unique device identifier, settings, app configurations and device events like usage, crashes, and system activity.
Smartphone device-specific logs. These logs may, for example, include your hardware model, operating system version and unique device identifiers. This helps us determine the type of environment you’re connecting your Popslate to.
Metadata associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive.
Information about website usage. We may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use the Popslate Website. This information could include your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).
We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users, which then helps us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.
Information Collected by Third Parties

Some content or applications, including advertisements, if any, on the Service are served by third-parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Website. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content.

As you browse the Popslate Website and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

We have also implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising, Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, and Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. Visitors can opt out by using Google’s Ads Settings or going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

How We Use Your Information

It also helps us to develop and improve our products and services by giving us data that can be internally analyzed and audited. In addition, it allows us to keep you posted on Popslate’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events.

More specifically, we may use information that we receive to:

Ship Popslate orders to you.

Remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service .

Sharing of Your Information

We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside Popslate (or the group of companies of which Popslate is a part) without your consent, except as noted in this Policy.

Parties with whom we may share your information

Popslate is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your User Content and information, including personal information, with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, personal information may be part of the transferred assets.

Affiliates: We may share User Content and your information (including but not limited to, information from cookies, log files, device identifiers, location data, and usage data) with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that Popslate is part of, or that become part of that group (“Affiliates”). Affiliates may use this information to help provide, understand, and improve the Service (including by providing analytics) and Affiliates’ own services (including by providing you with better and more relevant experiences). But these Affiliates will honor the choices you make about who can see your User Content.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Popslate, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements: Popslate may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Popslate, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

Parties with whom you may choose to share your User Content

Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you set. For information on how to change your privacy settings, see “Your account information and profile/privacy settings” below. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be displayed within Popslate Application on other Users’ smartphones, on other Users’ Second Screens, on the Popslate Website, on Popslate’s social media channels, and on third-party websites and within third-party applications. Publicly shared User Content may also be re-shared by others.
Subject to your profile and privacy settings, any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users and subject to use under our Popslate API. The use of the Popslate API is subject to the API Terms of Use, which incorporates the terms of this Privacy Policy.
If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users or third parties using the Popslate API have copied or saved that information.
What happens in the event of a change of control

If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of Popslate or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your information such as name and email address, User Content and any other information collected through the Service may be among the items sold or transferred. You will continue to own your User Content. The buyer or transferee will have to honor the commitments we have made in this Privacy Policy.
Responding to legal requests and preventing harm

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.
How We Store Your Information

Popslate, its Affiliates, or Service Providers may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.
By registering for and using the Service you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or to any other country in which Popslate, its Affiliates or Service Providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.
We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through the Service secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. However, Popslate cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to Popslate or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
Please do your part to help us. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to emails between you and Popslate, at all times.
