HOW IS INFORMATION COLLECTED?

When you give us permissions to obtain it. When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, tags, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using AuImage on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

  • You also may give us permission to access your information in other services – for example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to AuImage, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (e.g., your friends or contacts). The information we obtain from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

We collect technical information when you use our products. In today's world, technology based on some non-personal information that almost always gets created and recorded in an automated way often helps websites to analyze their users' behavior and trends, improve user experience as well as administer the website. When you use our products, we collect such information. The information and ways we may use to collect it described bellow:

  • Log Data.

This data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web page you were visiting before you came to AuImage, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, and how you used AuImage.
  • Cookies. Depending on how you’re accessing our products, we may use HTML, HTTP or Flash “cookies” to identify you and record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser deletes them). For example, we may use cookies to keep you logged in or to store your language preferences or other AuImage settings so you don’t have to set them up every time you visit AuImage.
  • Device Information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using AuImage on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
