Collection and Use of Personal Information
Here are some examples of the types of personal information Snapzing may collect and how we may use it.
When you download the Application or participate in Contests, we may collect a variety of information, including but not limited to your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences and place all this info into your Snapzing account (an “Account”). We may also collect information you supply to Snapzing concerning your preferences and interests either explicitly or through your use of the Application. When you share your content with family and friends using the Application or invite others to the Application, Snapzing may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.
How we use your personal information.
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you informed as to Snapzing’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events and/or Contests. It also helps us to develop, deliver and improve our Application, services, content, and advertising.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Snapzing’s Application, products, services, and customer communications.
If you enter into a Snapzing Contest or similar promotion we, and our third party strategic partners, may use the information you provide to administer and promote those programs and to promote Snapzing and/or our third party strategic partners, as permitted by applicable law.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
We also collect non-personal information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- We may collect information such as general location, occupation and language, so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our Application, products, services, and advertising.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times Snapzing may make certain personal information available to third party strategic partners that work with Snapzing to provide products, Contests, prizes and services, or that help Snapzing market to customers. Personal information may be shared by Snapzing to provide or improve offered prizes, our products, services and advertising; it may also be shared with Contest partners or our other strategic partners or social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
If Snapzing is ever part of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, sale or party to a sale of substantially all of its assets, your information, including personal information, may be transferred to the counter party(ies) and/or creditors as part of that transaction.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Snapzing to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of Personal Information
Snapzing takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. By using the Application, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use the Application at your own risk.
When you use some Snapzing products, services, or Applications the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a manner available to the public, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
Integrity and Retention of Personal Information
Access to Personal Information
You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account through the Application. For other personal information, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Snapzing is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting Snapzing through the contact information found in the Terms and Conditions.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
To provide location-based services on Snapzing products, Snapzing and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Snapzing computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Snapzing and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.
Third-Party Sites and Services
Snapzing websites, products, applications, and services and the Application may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties including, but not limited to, Contest prizes. You may also have the option to share your information with third party sites and services, like Facebook or Twitter, from and/or through the Application. Information sent by you to third parties, via the Application or otherwise, or collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices and other policies. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices and other applicable policies of those third parties.
