Personal Information (defined below) we obtain through the Apps, your communications with us, or from third parties. It also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information.
“Personal Information” means information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized such that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.
THE PLATFORM COLLECTS YOUR INFORMATION
We collect Personal Information when you choose to provide it to us including when you:
Register an Account. The Platform gives you the option of creating a user account (an “Account”). If you decide to create an Account, you will provide us with certain Personal Information, such as your user name and password.
Submit Information to the App. We collect information you submit to the Platform. For example, when you post a review of a Doctor received on Aedit on the Platform or refer a friend to Aedit using the Platform, the Platform will collect the information in your submission to the App, including any Personal Information. If you choose to submit content to any public area of the App, such content will be considered “public” and will not be subject to the privacy protections set forth herein.
Content Information. We collect the content that you create on our Service, such as customization of a photograph and the information about the content you create or provide, excluding the Personal Information.
Communicate with Us. We may also collect Personal Information from you when you communicate with us. For example, you may send us Personal Information by writing an email to us or subscribing to a Aedit mailing. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
Device Information. We collect
- • information from and about the devices you use. For example, we collect: information about your hardware and software, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, advertising identifiers, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, browser type, language, battery level, and time zone;
- • information from device sensors, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, compasses, microphones, and whether you have headphones connected; and
- • information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, and signal strength.
Camera and Photos. Many of our services require us to collect images and other information from your device’s camera and photos. For example, you won’t be able to send Aedit or upload photos from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.
Location Information. When you use our Services or the App we may collect information about your location. With your consent, we may also collect information about your precise location using methods that include GPS, wireless networks, cell towers, Wi-Fi access points, and other sensors, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, and compasses.
Take a Survey. From time to time, we may contact you to participate in online surveys. If you do decide to participate, you may be asked to provide certain information which may include Personal Information. For example, you may be asked to provide contact information as well as information about your height, weight, gender or date of birth.
Information You Provide About a Third Party. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about Aedit, we may collect your friend's Personal Information, such as name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to our App. We store your friend’s information in order to send this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program.
Passive Collection. The App collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you use it, including your preferences and anonymous usage statistics. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our App (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We use this data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the App. Non-personal information that we passively collect may be combined with other information about you, including Personal Information.
Information Provided by Third Parties. Aedit may collect information about you from third parties or supplement the information we collect from you with additional records received from third parties. Information is collected from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you information that we believe may be of interest to you.
