Snaapy collects information on our users in various ways, including your submissions to the Services, participation in the Services, registration and payment procedures, and through cookie and other tracking technology. Snaapy collects the following information:
"Personal Information" refers to information that specifically identifies who you are, such as your name, phone number, email, postal address, financial information, and if applicable information relating to certain support or customer service issues.
Snaapy collects financial information only as necessary to process payments. Snaapy’s third party payment processor may also collect financial information as necessary to process payments.
We collect information that you voluntarily provide as part of the Services, including messages, posts, comments, responses, reviews, and ratings you submit through the Services, ("User Generated Content"). Snaapy may in its sole discretion share your User Generated Content with others such as your business reviews, or use the User Generated Content per the “Submitted Content” provision in the Terms of Service. If you do not want certain information shared with others, you should not submit User Generated Content, or should not submit User Generated Content that contains information or Personal Information you do not want shared in this manner. Once you have submitted User Generated Content, we reserve the right to publish it in any medium to others, and it may become public.
Our Services may offer publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used for any purpose by others who access them. Snaapy is not responsible for the Personal Information or other information you choose to submit in these areas.
We may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Services, such as how many users visit a specific page on our website, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective viewing habits, and allows us and other third parties to modify information, promotions, offers and/or discounts on products and services based on user traffic and behavior. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as 'cookies' and web beacons, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to help enhance the Services to make for a better user experience.
We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate or update your address, payment card or other demographic and lifestyle information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect, to enable us to fulfill our products and services, to target our communications so that we can inform you of products, services and offers that may be of interest, and for internal business analysis or other business purposes consistent with our mission.
We may use the services of third parties to collect and use anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with our website through the use of technologies such as cookies to personalize advertisements for goods and services.
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; the MAC address or other technical information from your mobile device; location information through GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, or similar technologies; and dates and times that our Services are accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that 'serve up' webpages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. The Services may also use technology called "tracer tags". These may also be referred to as "Pixels", "Clear GIFs" or "Web Beacons". This technology allows us to understand which pages you visit on our website and other ways you interact with our Services, such as purchases made through the Services, and allows us to track your geolocation for the purpose of listing Service Providers in your vicinity and to otherwise provide the Services to you. These tracer tags are used to help us to optimize and tailor our Services for you and other users of our Services. We may link the information we record using tracking technologies to Personal Information we collect.
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, Snaapy and our website do not recognize DNT.
