Use of Technology to Collect Information

We use various technologies to collect information from your device and about your activities on our Service:

Information collected automatically

We automatically collect information from your browser or device when you visit our Service. This information could include, but is not limited to, your IP address, device ID, device type, browser type and language settings, the operating system of your device, access times, your mobile device’s geographic location while our application is actively running, and the referring website address.

Cookies and Use of Cookie Data

When you visit our Service, we may assign your device one or more cookies to facilitate access to our Service and to personalize your experience. Through the use of a cookie, we may automatically collect information, including but not limited to, your activity on our Service, such as the pages you visit, the time and date of your visits and the links you click. If we advertise, we (or third parties) may use certain data collected on our Service to show you ScoutOut advertisements on other sites or applications.

Users can choose to accept or decline cookies, through the preference settings in the web browsers. Furthermore, User may choose to delete cookies and the data stored within them.

Pixel tags

We may embed pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear GIFs) on web pages, applications, ads and/or emails. These tiny, invisible graphics are used to access cookies and track user activities (such as how many times a page is viewed). We use pixel tags to measure the popularity of our features and services. Ad companies also use pixel tags to measure the number of ads displayed and their performance (such as how many people clicked on an ad).

Mobile Device IDs

If you’re using our app, we use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later), instead of cookies to recognize you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our app. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone. Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use of the app, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about app usage.

Information collected by third-parties for advertising purposes

We may allow service providers, advertising companies and ad networks, and other third parties to display advertisements on our Service. 

These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. We do not provide any non-anonymized personal data to third parties.

Content you provide while using our Service (user generated content)

We provide areas on our Service where you can voluntarily post information, content or advertisement about yourself and others and communicate with others. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Service. 

Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal data or information on publicly-viewable pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal data or information.

How we protect your personal data

We take numerous security measures to help safeguard your personal data from unauthorized access and disclosure to third parties that are not mentioned in “Disclosure or Transfer of Data” Section. 

However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, chats, or other communications will always remain secure.
