Information you provide directly:
- Your username, password, and e-mail address when you register to use the Application;
- Profile information that you provide in your user profile;
- User Content (e.g., photos) that you post to your account;
- Communications between you and PopSockets. For example, we may send you Application/Service related emails or other notifications (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of the Application/Service related e-mails; and
- Other information you voluntarily provide to us.
Information we collect automatically. We may collect or obtain certain information about you automatically when you use the Application, including:
- Date and time of your download and/or use of the Application;
- Unique identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers that can identify the physical location of such devices in accordance with applicable law;
- Information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies; and
- Information about your interactions with email messages, such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded.
Log File Information. Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) an application. It can also be provided when the content of the application is downloaded to your browser or device. When you use the Application or Service, our servers automatically records certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol 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 may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Application or Service.
Device Identifiers. When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifies are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by PopSockets. A device identifier may deliver information to us or a third party about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
