Our websites and apps, and these other third parties may have their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read before providing information on or through them.

Your continued use of this App after we revise this policy means you accept those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Your Choices About Our Collection, Use, and Disclosure of Your Information

 

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. This section describes mechanisms we provide for you to control certain uses and disclosures of over your information. 

  • Privacy Settings. You may view and adjust your privacy settings within the Privacy Settings screen of the App to enable you to hide or show certain elements of user account and profile information to other app users.  You may also use Privacy Settings to opt-out of the automated collection of anonymous app usage and analytical data.

  • Tracking Technologies. You can set your device to refuse all or some cookies or other tracking technologies.  If you disable or refuse cookies or block the use of other tracking technologies, some parts of the App may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

 

We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt-out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on the NAI’s website.

 

Accessing and Correcting Your Personal Information

 

You can review and change your personal information by logging into the App and visiting your account profile page.

 

If you delete your User Contributions from the App, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied or stored by other App users. Proper access and use of information provided on the App, including User Contributions, is governed by our terms of use.

 

Data Security

 

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All data, sensitive or otherwise, will be secured at rest with 256-bit encryption.  All transactions from the App to servers will use Transport Layer Security.  To ensure data integrity and reliable usage in situations where internet access may not be dependable, the App will support offline data persistence to maintain operability until it can synchronize its database state with a remote authority.

 

The safety and security of your information also depend on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the App like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the App.

 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our App. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.

 

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

 

We may update our privacy policy from time to time. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal information, we will post the new privacy policy on this page.

The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you and for periodically visiting this privacy policy to check for any changes.
