Snaps Media, Inc. Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January 7th, 2019

We at Snaps Media, Inc.(“Snaps Media, Inc.,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) take your privacy seriously and know that you care about how your personal information is used and shared.  This policy applies to information we collect on our website, the Snaps Platform, and our software and applications (collectively, the “Services”). It does not apply to third party websites or applications. These third parties may have their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read before providing information on or through them.

By using the Services or any other features or content we offer in connection with our software or applications, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you consent that we will collect, use and share your information in the following ways.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not download, register with, or use the Services. By downloading, registering with or using the Services, you agree to this policy. This policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of the Services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

We collect the following types of information from our users:

Personal Information You Provide Us:

We receive and store any information you provide us. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, phone number, IP address and browser information. We use the Personal Information you provide to enhance your user experience.

Information Collected Automatically:

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device platform, including your location, IP address, “cookie” information and the page you requested.

We may place, or allow our technology and advertising partners to place, “cookies” and “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, 1-by-1 GIFs, and web bugs) on your device, which are identifiers transferred to your device through your browser that allow us to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our or our advertising partners’ sites are visited, when advertisements are viewed and by how many people, and to engage in other reporting. These identifiers do not contain Personal Information about you. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser to prevent or limit your computer’s acceptance of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of our Services.

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us, indicating whether the email has been opened and whether links in the email have been clicked. This confirmation helps us make emails more interesting and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, indicate your preference during the registration process, by modifying your account settings accordingly or by emailing us at support@snaps.io.

When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of users on our application), we only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate data tells us how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing to as many users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners and clients, which allows them to understand how often people use their services and our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal user experience. We never disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.

Children’s Privacy Issues

We do not intend to and do not want to collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Any use of the Services by children under the age of 13 should be conducted under the supervision of that child’s parent or guardian. Information should not be submitted to the Service by anyone under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. If we learn that a user under 13 years of age has submitted personally identifiable information online, we will take reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law). We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Will We Share Any of the Personal Information We Collect?

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information in personally identifiable form only as described below.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: In certain situations, businesses we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Services (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction. The data-collection practices of such affiliated businesses will be governed by that business’s privacy policy.

Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Communication About the Services: As part of the Services, you may receive communications from us, whether by email or other means. We and our agents may send you email, contact you or engage you in other communication that we or they determine relate to your use of the Services.

Promotional Offers: If you opt in through the Services to receive promotional offers, we may send offers to you on behalf of other businesses. When we do so, however, we do not give the other business your Personal Information. If you do not wish to receive these offers, you may opt out by emailing us at support@snaps.io.

Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Also, if we (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.

Protection of Snaps Media, Inc. and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that doing so is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of Snaps Media, Inc., our employees, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit-risk reduction.

With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.

How We Use Your Information

We will only use your information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your information in the following circumstances:

  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you (e.g., where we process your email address in order to access our systems or for billing purposes);

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests;

  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation;

  • Where we have your explicit consent before using information. However, generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing personal data and you have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us. You will find the relevant contact details at the end of this policy.

Is Personal Information About You Secure?

Snaps Media, Inc. and the vendors that provide hosting services for us use a variety of security technologies and administrative procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure with security measures appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. For example, your personal information is stored on computer systems located in controlled facilities. Internal access to users’ private and non-public personal information is restricted to site administrators and others on a need-to-know basis.

We endeavor to safeguard user information and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

What Personal Information Can You Access?

Upon request, Snaps will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If you have any questions about viewing, updating, or deleting information we have on file about you, please contact us at support@snaps.io. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to contact us to prevent disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To do so, please submit a written request to: Snaps Media Inc. 27 West 24th Street, Suite 801, New York, NY 10010.

European Union Data Considerations

Personal information collected through the Services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Snaps Media Inc. or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) with respect to your Personal Data.

How long do we retain your Personal Data?

We retain Personal Data about you for so long as Snaps Media Inc.’s contractual obligations remain with our Clients.  In some cases we retain Personal Data for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on our Services. You can determine if any changes were made to this Privacy Policy by noting the date that it was last updated. You are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when you use the Services after such changes have been first posted.
