GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Users of the App Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. Like most app operators, Company gathers from users of the App Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the apps the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the App. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the App to help Company better understand how the App is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the App to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from App users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the App.
We may provide you the option to connect your account on the App to your account on some social networking sites for the purpose of logging in, uploading information or enabling certain features on the App. When logging in using your social network credentials, we may collect the Personally-Identifying Information you have made publicly available on the social networking site, such as your name, profile picture, username, and any other information you have made public. By connecting your account on the App to your account on any social networking site, you hereby consent to the continuous release of information about you to us. We will not send any of your account information to the connected social networking site without first disclosing that to you. Each social network may further allow you to set privacy controls around your information on their system, and our collection of information will always follow such controls and permissions. This feature is subject to continuous change and improvement by us and each social networking site involved, and therefore the available features and shared information are subject to change without notice to you.
COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person. Company may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about App users. Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Company about users is information provided by users themselves when (1) registering for our service, (2) logging in with social network credentials, (3) participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements, (4) communicating with us, (5) creating a public profile or (6) signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include each user’s name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username, hometown and other demographic or relevant information as determined by Company from time to time.Users of the App are under no obligation to provide Company with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain App features.
BY REGISTERING WITH OR USING THE APP, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS “COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION” SECTION.
We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the App that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, though we reserve the right to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Company will disclose Personally-Identifying Information under the following circumstances:
Changing Personally-Identifying Information; Account Termination

Upon your request, we will deactivate or delete your account and contact information from our active data bases.

Company uses the Personally-Identifying Information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the App (1) to manage your account and provide you with customer support; (2) to communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you either from us; (3) to develop and display content tailored to your interests on the App and other sites; (4) to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES GENERALLY
The company’s integration with Hootsuite is a bit problematic. The access token of the service is kept on DB without further encryption. The access token is changing multiple times in the hour, and there is an option to delete app integration from the Hootsuite dashboard.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) protects the online privacy of children under 13years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personally-Identifying Information from any one under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides Personally-Identifying Information through the App represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that Personally-Identifying Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the App, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of the App or has otherwise transferred Personally-Identifying Information to the App, please contact Company using our contact information below to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.
