FANSEE MOBILE APP PRIVACY POLICY

FanSee, Inc. (“FanSee,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) has created this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our user, (“you” or “your”) regarding your privacy with respect to information that you submit through our mobile application (“App”) and related services through the App (“Services”). To be clear, this Privacy Policy applies only to the information collected through the use of our App and related Services, and does not apply to information collected through our website (though we may combine the information if you use both the App and our website).

 

Personal Information” means contact information (i.e., your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual, including any data, media, messages and content that you make available through the Service. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual. 

    

BY USING OUR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

 

INFORMATION COLLECTED

Personal Information

The Personal Information we gather from you helps us provide you with access to, and learn more about your use of, the App. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily in the course of registering for and using the App. When you add or edit video content using our App, that content is automatically collected by us and sent to our servers, so that we may provide our Services to you and allow you to edit your content with the content of other users  We primarily collect this information to provide Services to you.

FanSee is a video sharing platform, so most of the information you provide us is information that you choose to be made public (subject to your settings in your account). Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. When you share information or content via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

If you participate in a contest or giveaway with us, we may ask you for your e-mail address and/or home number (to notify you if you win or not).  We may also ask for first and last names, and sometimes post office addresses to verify your identity.  In some situations we may need additional information as a part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice.  These contests are voluntary.  We recommend that you read the rules for each contest that you enter.  If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.

You have the option of registering with us through a third party social networking website (“SNS”), such as Facebook, using your existing account and log-in credentials on such site. When you click on “Connect with us,” or a similar connection on the App, you will be prompted to enter your SNS credentials for the SNS.  By proceeding, you are granting us and our Services access to your information and you are agreeing to the Facebook or other SNS’s Terms of Use in your use of the Services.  In this case, we receive information from Facebook or another SNS to make it easier for you to create an Account with us.  Any information that we collect from your Facebook or other SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have with that SNS, so please consult the SNS’s privacy and data practices.  You have the option to disable Facebook Connect at any time by logging into your Account through the App.

If you tell us where you are (i.e., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may use that information to provide you with location-based information. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can disable location services on your mobile device. Please contact your carrier for more information. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as tagging a video with a location, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with other FanSee content that has been tagged near your location.

Information Collected via Technology. 

Information Collected by Our Servers.  To make our Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.

Log Files.  As is true of most online services, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  

Mobile Device. We may collect information about the computer or device you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, MAC address, unique device identifier, phone number, and mobile network information. In addition, the Services may access your device's image storage applications, with your consent, to facilitate your use of certain features of the Services. For more information about how you can control our access to these applications, please see "Your Choices" below.

Cookies.  Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information.  “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website.  We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our App.  This type of information is collected to make the Services more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.  

 

We may combine any of the foregoing information with your Personal Information, in which case we will consider it to be Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

 

Disclosure – Analytics. 

We may also use third party tracking services to help us analyze how users use the App, including Google Analytics.  Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Site and Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying information.  We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with your Personal Data. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.  Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. 

 

 

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal Information

We will use your Personal Information to:

Administer your Account;

Provide you with Services and customer support;

Tailor the features and content of the Services to you;

Market our products and services and those of third parties to you that we believe may be of interest to you;

Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;

Verify your compliance with your obligations in our EULA; and

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you. 

 

Anonymous Information

We use the Anonymous Information we collect to analyze trends, administer the Services, track users’ movements in the App, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs.  For example, some of the Log Files may be collected so that when you use the App again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Services and does not apply to these third party websites.  We encourage you to read the privacy policies of each and every website they visit.  Users should always use caution and common sense when choosing to provide Personal Information on the Internet, particularly when it comes to information such as credit cards and other payment information. The ability to access information of third parties from the Services is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their services, other websites, locations or their contents.
