‘Nonpersonal Information’ (NPI) is information that is in no way personally identifiable to you. ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is not publicly displayed information that is personally identifiable to you and obtained for us to provide you with a product or service. PII may include information such as your first and last name, email address, physical address, phone number, credit card information, and other related information that you provide to us.
Generally you control the amount and type of information that you provide to us when using our mobile app. If you register as a user or member to use our mobile app, you must provide PII for us to provide you with various features and functionality of our mobile app. We collect your PII in the following ways:
When you register as a user or member, we may (but not always) collect your name, email address, and other information listed.
If you authenticate through Facebook or Instagram, we will retrieve your public profile name, public picture, link to your profile, and other related information.
When you use our mobile app, we may collect and process information about your actual physical location. We use several technologies like GPS and IP tracking to determine your location. These technologies may also provide us with information about nearby cell towers, Wi-Fi access points, and other devices.
