What Information We Collect
The types of information that we collect fall under two general categories: personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information (“non-PII”). PII consists of any information which can be used to specifically identify you as an individual, whereas non-PII consists of aggregate information or any information that does not reveal your identity. The following sections describe how your PII and non-PII are collected by us, and how we use such information.
How We Collect and Use Information
We automatically collect information created by your visits to our website and use of our mobile application. This information may include the browser you are using, the IP Address you come from and go to, the URL you are trying to reach through our Service, the model of your computer or mobile device, the operating system version, IP address and protocol used by your computer or mobile device, your mobile device or app identifier, and usage and browsing habits. We use this information to provide and improve our Services, to diagnose and resolve problems, to analyze trends, to help target offers and other ads (if and where applicable), to monitor aggregate usage, and to gather broad (aggregate) demographic information.
We may use internal and third-party analytics and tracking tools (“Analytics Provider”) to help us analyze how users use the mobile Service. We may change the Analytics Provider that we use from time to time. The information generated by your device about your use of the Service will be transmitted to and stored by the Analytics Provider on servers in the United States. The Analytics Provider will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Service, compiling reports on mobile activity for our use and providing other services relating to Service activity. The Analytics Provider may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on the Analytics Provider’s behalf. By using the Service, you consent to the processing of data about you by the Analytics Provider in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
Information About You
Demographic data is also collected by the Service. We use this data to tailor your experience, showing you content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences. Some of this information may be shared with advertisers on a non-personally identifiable basis. Please refer to the section below titled “Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties by Us” for further information.
Online Survey Data
We may periodically conduct voluntary member surveys. We encourage our members to participate in such surveys because they provide us with important information regarding the improvement of the Service. You may also volunteer for certain surveys that we may offer to our users, and any additional rules regarding the conduct of such surveys will be disclosed to you prior to your participation.
From time to time we may add features that allow Users to communicate with one another. If a communication method is public (e.g., a forum), then any information that is disclosed in these areas could be considered public information depending upon how your Profile’s Settings are structured. Therefore, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any PII. If the communication method is private (e.g., personal messaging), then you acknowledge that our system administrators may have access to those communications, and we may access them as required by law enforcement or to determine your compliance with the terms and conditions of the Services.
Disclosure of Your Information to Third Parties
Disclosure Authorized or Required By Law. You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information you provide if:
(a) we believe in good faith that we are authorized or required to do so by law, or you give us your consent to do so, including if we notify you that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information; or
(b) we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary or appropriate to (1) comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law); (2) protect or defend the rights or property of the Service or a third party; or (3) protect someone's health or safety.
Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties By Us
We may share your PII, sometimes in conjunction with your non-PII, with service providers that may be associated with us to perform functions on our behalf. For example, outsourced customer support agents or technology infrastructure providers may need access to your information to perform services for you. Your information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any other purpose than we authorize.
Information Transferred As a Result of Sale of Business. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets and, depending on the transaction, your PII may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your PII may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. If this occurs, you will be notified if there are any material changes to the way your PII is collected or used.
(To) is very careful and selective regarding 3rd Party advertising. We screen all potential advertisers in order to ensure that the content they will be providing is relevant, meaningful and beneficial to our users. In particular, if we determine an advertisement or opportunity could enhance a user’s experience of place or their surroundings, and as a result a better Service experience, then we want to be sure our users have access to that information. In order to deliver such an experience, third-party advertising agencies or other service providers will serve ads on the Service on behalf of (To) or third-party advertisers (e.g., coupons for goods or services, sponsored events in your area, online educational opportunities or unique opportunities that may be of interest to you). These companies may employ cookies or web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness through the linked URLs that they provide us with and their web pages. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is completely anonymous. Some of these third-party advertising agencies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers you the option to opt out of ad targeting from its member agencies by following the procedures listed at Networkadvertising.org.
We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information stored in our database. We will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer or mobile device and our servers. However, no information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, so we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and hence accept no liability for any unintentional interception or misuse.
