Privacy Policy

Introduction

The Snapp service (“the Service”) is operated by snapIoT Italy, a fully owned subsidiary of snapIoT Inc (“snapIoT”). snapIoT respects your privacy, and this Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information, and help you make informed decisions when using the Service. By using the Service, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should first contact us info@snapiot.com.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect a variety of information from you and other sources when you use the Service, including technical information as well as information that can be used to identify you individually, sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information.”

When you register to use the Service, you provide us with certain personal information such as your name, username, phone number, email address, payment information (e.g. credit card or debit card number) and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.

When you launch the Service, we automatically collect a variety of information about your device and your use of the Service in log files, such as your IP address, device ID, operating system, and browser type, as well as information regarding items on the Service that you view or access and transactions you engage in using the Service. This information is gathered for all users. We may also use “cookies,” or small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive so that the Service may access that information on return visits. We generally do not store or retrieve any personally identifiable information in cookies. If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features of the Service.

If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about the Service, we may ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. snapIoT stores this information to send this one-time invitation, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at info@snapiot.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

By using the Service, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

USE OF INFORMATION OBTAINED BY SNAPIOT

snapIoT uses the information you provide or that we collect from third party sources to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features found on the Service. We will use the contact information you have provided to contact you for administrative purposes, for customer service purposes, to notify you of activity within the Service, to address intellectual property infringement, rights of privacy, or defamation issues, regarding User Content that you have posted to the Service, or to send you notifications regarding new services offered by snapIoT that we think you may find valuable.

snapIoT uses your information to process purchases made by you in connection with your use of the Service, contact you in connection with any such purchases, and to comply with laws and regulations related to purchases made by you through the Service.

snapIoT uses your credit card or debit card information to track your purchases. In addition, if you opt in to have any cash back earned by you credited to your credit card or debit card, we will use your credit card or debit card information for the purposes of processing any cash back you may earn to your selected credit card or debit card account. Alternatively, you may elect to have the cash back be delivered to you by check.

snapIoT uses information in your profile or related to your activities on the Service in order to personalize the application experience for you (such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Service), and to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the Service works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.

snapIoT uses automatically collected technical information, “cookies” information, and any other information we collect from you during registration or at other times to: (a) provide customized third party advertisements, content, and information; (b) monitor and analyze the effectiveness of the Service and third party marketing activities; (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

snapIoT is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the Service to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.

The Service may currently or in the future enable users to publish information and communicate in a variety of ways. Any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to make available to others through use of the Service, such as on a public profile page or in a comment, posting, or in other User Content, will be available for use without restriction to the recipients. Once you make your personal information available to others in this manner, snapIoT cannot control how it is collected, used, and disclosed by the recipients. If you choose to use features on the Service that allow you to publish or syndicate information to third party services such as Facebook, use and disclosure of any information you choose to disclose in this manner will be subject to such third party’s privacy policies.

Although we may allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your User Content, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in the Service.

snapIoT works with a variety of third party service and content providers to provide development, hosting, maintenance, support, and content as well as other business services, including the processing of payment information. These providers may have access to or process your personally identifiable information. These providers are generally subject to terms comparable to this Privacy Policy, and limited to using the information the purpose for which it was provided.

snapIoT may also share automatically collected and other non-personally identifiable information in an aggregate form (such as user trends, application downloads, and demographic information) with a variety of third parties, including our affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and other current and prospective investors or business partners. This information may be used to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Service.

In the event that the Service links to certain third party content which requires access credentials (such as a name, user ID, or password) for access, we may provide the access credentials that you give to us to the operator or website owner of the third party content in order to facilitate and enable your access to that third party content.

We share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is 1) incident to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through a third party server), 2) legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in the investigation or other law enforcement activity, 3) useful to protect and defend our rights and property, 4) useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, or 5) authorized by you.

If the ownership of all or a portion of the snapIoT’s business, or individual business units owned by snapIoT, were to change, such as through a merger or acquisition, your user information may be transferred to the new owner in connection with that transaction. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to Privacy Policy it was subject to at the time of transfer.

CHANGING OR REMOVING INFORMATION

snapIoT users may modify or delete certain profile information at any time by logging into their account on either a computer or mobile device. Information will be updated promptly in active user databases. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Service account may do so by editing their user accounts or by emailing us at info@snapiot.com. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to other Users. Further, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived form or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.

Where you make use of the communication features of the Service to share information with other individuals on snapIoT or make information publicly available, however, (e.g., sending a favorites list to another user or posting a comment or review) you generally cannot remove such communications.

SECURITY

snapIoT takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to snapIoT, and you do so at your own risk. If snapIoT learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. snapIoT may post a notice through the Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of snapIoT applications, please contact us at info@snapiot.com.

MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY

As specified in the Terms, snapIoT may from time to time revise this Privacy Policy. If we do, we will post those changes on this page and indicate the new effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. For changes to this Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our right to use or disclose your personal information, we will attempt to notify you before implementing the change. Without your consent, we will only use and disclose your information in a manner consistent with the version of the Privacy Policy that was in effect at the time we collected that information. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the information we collect from you.
