Types of Data and Collection Methods
We receive information that you actively submit as well as data that we acquire through cookies, analytics, and other passive means as described more fully below:
Personal Information: We consider some of the information that we collect about you to be “personal information.” We define personal information as information that is unique to you such as your name, Now account name, e-mail address, Facebook account name, profile details and profile photo.
Actively Submitted Data: We collect the information that you voluntarily provide to us using the Service. For example, you may login to the Service via Facebook, submit event photos, or create a profile page. We also collect the information you send in your communications to us. For example, if you send us a question by e-mail, we will collect your e-mail address.
Location Information. The Service may use your device’s location features. This means that the Service provides additional functionality when you allow your device to provide your current location to us. The first time you use a location feature in one of our apps, the app will prompt you for your permission to access your current location. You can enable or disable location features at any time via your device’s settings menu.
Integration with Third-Party Services. Our Service can be configured to use third-party services such as Facebook , Foursquare, and Instagram. These services extend the features of the Service and may permit you to share event, sight or locale information with other users of those services and our Service. The Service may be configured to receive information from and post information to such services and our Service. We cannot control how third-party services use your information and your use of those third-party services is subject to the third-party service providers’ respective privacy policies and terms of service. If you share information using these services, the visibility of the information (public, friends-only, etc.) will depend on the third-party’s policies and any account preferences or privacy settings you may have established with the third-party. We may collect and store information that you make available to us via a third-party service. For example, if you use Facebook to login to the Service, we may associate your Facebook account with other information we collect about you.
Photo Gallery. You may give our app access to your device’s photo gallery. We will only collect and share the photos that you select for posting on the Service.
Collection Purposes, Use of Data
We use passively tracked data primarily for purposes of administering, protecting and improving the Service, to better understand the preferences of our users, to identify problems with the Service, to compile aggregated usage statistics, and to help personalize your experience with the Service.
We use actively submitted data for two purposes: first, for the purpose for which you originally sent us the data (e.g., to post event, sight or locale details or facilitate your registration); and second, for purposes of contacting you to further discuss your interest in our company, the Service, and future product and service offerings. You may opt out of receiving marketing communications as explained below. We may also use your location information to provide notifications based on your location. For example, we may notify you of a nearby event. Information that you submit to us for public posting will be visible to other users of the Service.
Disclosures of Personal Information
We are not in the business of selling or renting your personal information to marketers and we do not share your personal information with others except as otherwise described in this Policy. If you do provide us with personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of our company unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our trusted service providers or agents to provide services for us, (3) in order to provide our products or services to you, (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements, (5) in connection with a sale, merger, or other transfer of all or substantially all of our stock or assets, (6) it is necessary in connection with other business purposes including, without limitation, customer care, service quality, business management and operation, risk assessment, security, fraud and crime prevention/detection, monitoring, research and analysis, marketing, customer purchasing preferences and trends and dispute resolution, or (7) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law. Also, we reserve the right to fully use and disclose any information that is not personal information (such as statistics and survey results that do not identify you individually by name).
To opt out of receiving commercial communications from us, please click on the “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” link in the communication or please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your e-mail address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request.
If personal information you have submitted through the Service is no longer accurate, current, or complete, and you wish to update it, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. Upon appropriate request, we will usually be glad to update or amend your information, but we reserve the right to use information obtained previously to verify your identity or take other actions that we believe are appropriate and lawful.
We restrict access to personal information to our employees or other service providers that need access to that information to provide services to you. You acknowledge, however, that no transmission of data over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, despite our efforts. Though we cannot guarantee the security of the Service, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons.

If you are accessing the Service from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to protect your privacy.
