Privacy Policy

Effective date: November 26, 2020

Snippit recognizes the importance of your privacy. We strive to be open and straightforward and to keep you informed with respect to your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, and share your information when you access, use, or otherwise interact with our services, including our mobile applications (the "App") and our websites (collectively, the "Service"). Your information includes any content, information, or other material that you post to or through the Service (collectively, "User Content").

This Privacy Policy discloses how and when we collect your information, the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information, and how you can access and update your information. This Privacy Policy is to be read in connection with our Terms of Service ("Terms"), available at www.getsnippit.com/tos. If you have any questions concerning this Privacy Policy, please email us at privacy@getsnippit.com.

1. Use of the Service

By using our Service, you consent to the collection, disclosure, storage, transfer, and use of your personal and non-personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

International Use.

Snippit hosts and operates the Service in the United States. Regardless of your country of residence, you authorize the transfer and use of your information in the United States, where your personal information will be subject to United States law, and any other country where Snippit operates. If you reside outside the United States, please note that the level of protection available under United States law may be different from the country in which you reside.

Children.

The Service is not directed to children under 13 years of age. Snippit does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you become aware that your child provided Snippit with personal information without your consent, please contact us at privacy@getsnippit.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 provided us with personal information, Snippit takes reasonable steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.

2. Information we Collect

We collect the following information to provide you with the Service as well as to support the best overall experience for all users. The Service collects information you provide when you download the App and register for the Service, post content on or through the Service, and utilize other features of the Service ("user provided information"), and also collects certain information automatically ("automatically collected information"). This may include two types of information (1) personal information and (2) non-personal information. Personal information can be directly associated with or identify you as a specific person, whereas non-personal information does not, by itself, identify you. In general, we do not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us.

User provided information:

Account Information.

When you register for the Service, you are required to provide personal information such as your name, username, and email address. We also require that you provide us with your birthday, which we use to verify your age. This information may personally identify you and we list some of this information publicly on the Service. For example, your name and username are included on your profile page and in search results. Keep in mind that some features of the Service do not require registration.

User Content and Additional Information You Share.

You may provide additional information when you choose to share on or through the Service. This includes profile information such as your description and photo, as well as User Content posted on or through the Service, including audio, images, comments, location information, and other material, i.e., User Content. By default, all sharing through the Service is public and this public information is both broadly and instantaneously disseminated. Your public profile information and public User Content may be delivered to a wide range of users and services. Providing this additional information including User Content is entirely optional.

Information Others Share.

Others users may provide information when they choose to share User Content on or through the Service that includes your username in connection with a post (i.e. "tag" you in a post).

Other Information We Receive About You.

We receive information through various features of the Service to help you find the people you know and to connect you to other services. For example, you may choose to upload information from your contacts or to connect your Snippit account to another service such as Facebook® or Twitter®. Snippit will match the information you provide with the contact information provided by other users. When you connect your Snippit account to another service, you may post your User Content to that service. You may disconnect your Snippit account from your other services at any time. When you disconnect your other account, we will delete information obtained from that connection other than publicly posted User Content.

Location information.

Features of the Service make use of user-enabled location services. We collect or share location information only with your permission. If you allow location services, we may collect, use, or store your precise geographic location. We will collect information including data on cell towers and WiFi routers in your proximity. In general, most devices will indicate when location services are operating by showing an icon. You may choose to publish your location in User Content posted on or through the Service and on your profile. You always have the ability to control the location services. We do not use or share your location information to identify you or for any other purpose.

Automatically collected information:

Links.

We may collect information on how you access and interact with the Service, including administrative services such as email notifications and third-party services. We collect and use this information to improve the quality of our Service.

Cookies.

We may use cookies and similar technology to improve your experience. Cookies are small files that websites place on your computer while you browse the web. We use cookies to discover how you use the Service. You can use the Do Not Track preference of your browser to disable collection of this information.

Log Data.

When you access the Service, you disclose certain information related to your hardware and software that we automatically collect. For example, we may collect your IP (Internet Protocol) address, operating system, browser type, access times, pages visited, search terms, mobile carrier, device type, device IDs, and application IDs. We collect this information to generate statistics about use of the Service and use the results to customize as well as improve the overall quality of the Service. In general, we either delete Log Data or remove any personal identifiers such as your name, username, email address, or IP address, within 18 months of collection.

Information provided directly to other services:

iTunes® purchases.

When you choose to leave the App to purchase content in the iTunes Store, you will provide your credit card number and related information directly to Apple. Apple's privacy policy will apply to the information you provide on the iTunes Store App.

Without your consent:

Your consent is not required for disclosure of your information in the following limited circumstances: (1) as required by law; (2) when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, your safety, or the safety of others; or (3) in the case of a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution, or sale of assets, to any successor or purchaser.

We may disclose your information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal proceeding, investigate fraud, or respond to government requests.

We may also disclose your information when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, your safety, or the safety or others.

Business Transfer.

If Snippit is involved in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution, or sale of assets, you will be notified via email or a prominent notice on the Service of any change in ownership or use of your information, and any options you have in relation to your information. In these circumstances, we may disclose your information to any successor or purchaser.

Service providers.

To provide you with the best experience possible, we may share your personal and non-personal information with service providers for use only on our behalf both in the United States and abroad. We authorize these third parties to use your personal information only as necessary to provide services related to our business activities. Their use is limited to the purpose stated in our instructions, and subject to confidentiality agreements consistent with this Privacy Policy. For example, analytics companies may access non-personal information to aid our understanding of how the Service is used. This data may be linked to your device, but is not linked to your identity.

We may share or disclose your public, aggregated, or non-personal information. Public Information includes your profile information such as your name, username, description, and photo, as well as the users following you and that you follow. Public Information also includes public User Content such as your posts on or through the Service, and your interactions with your posts and the posts of others. For example, public information includes your favorites and comments. Non-personal information cannot be used to identify you. For example, we may disclose the number of users who viewed or clicked to favorite a particular post.

5. Accessing, Modifying, or Deleting Your Information

You can access some of the information that we collect about you. If you are a registered user, you may access or modify your personal information at any time by signing into your account. You may access or modify your communications preferences by following the instructions included in any communications you receive. In the case of administrative communications concerning the Service, these emails are provided to all registered users and considered to be a part of the Service.

You may delete your information, subject to limitations, by signing into your account and modifying your information or removing User Content. You can also permanently delete your Snippit account by contacting us. We remove personal information and other information associated with your account promptly after you delete your account. In certain circumstances, however, Snippit may be unable to remove some of your information, such as information you post through the Service to other services or otherwise publicly share. For example, if another user reposted your User Content on the Service.

6. Protecting your information

We take reasonable steps to protect and secure your personal information against unauthorized access or disclosure. We use security software to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. We cannot guarantee, however, that these security methods will protect your information from hackers or human error. We review our business practices periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security of our information.
