Smart Mimic, Inc.

- INFORMATION FROM USERS
We collect the following information from our Users:
- Information You Provide to Us
We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, e-mail, username, and password when you create an account (i.e., “register”) to log in to our Services (“Account”). 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. If you sign up for our newsletter, we will collect your e-mail address.
If you participate in any survey about our Website, Application, and/or Services, we will collect all information provided in your answers. If you participate in a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion on our Services, we may ask you for your e-mail address and/or phone number (to notify you if you win or not). We may also ask for first and last name and sometimes postal address to verify your identity.
- Information You Provide to Facebook, Google, and other Social Networking Sites
The Services allow users to create an Account using their accounts with certain social networking sites (each, an “SNS”) supported by us. If you are not currently registered as a user of the Services, and you click on “Sign in” using Facebook, Google, or another SNS that we support, you will first be asked to enter your Facebook, Google, or SNS credentials and then be given the option to register for the Services. In this case, we may receive information from Facebook, Google, or another SNS to make it easier for you to create an Account on the Site and show our relevant content from your Facebook, Google, or SNS friends. Any information that we collect from your Facebook, Google, 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. Further, you can edit privacy settings for the reviews that appear on Facebook or disconnect your Services activity stream by visiting the Facebook Applications Settings page.
- Information Collected via Technology
- Mobile Services. We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile if you have downloaded any of our Applications. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your geographic location, how you use the Application, and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application crashes on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application.
- Pixel Tags. In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies that are used to track online movements of Web and App users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web and App pages and e-mails. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format user can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.
(d) Information Collected from You About Others
As part of your use of the Services, we provide you the opportunity to automatically invite your family and friends to use the Services. We employ various techniques in order to facilitate friends and family finding each other on our service, including offering contact importer tools to facilitate adding to your contacts (including Facebook Friends and contacts in your address book) so that you can more readily ask your contacts to join and communicate with you through the Services. With your permission, we will access your address book and import your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, image, geographic location, and Facebook IDs to facilitate automatic connection with your friends. When you invite friends to the Services, we will access your Address Book and we will import your contacts names and phone numbers in order to facilitate the invitation. We may also use the information we collect from your Address Book to market our Services to your contacts. The e-mail that is sent to your friends will come from your e-mail address so that your friends know that you want to invite them to visit the Site. We do not store any passwords you provide as part of the contact import process. We also collect some settings that help us to interpret your data, such as the language and keyboard settings that you have established, and the phone’s carrier, mobile network code, and mobile country code.
