1. App Providers
How do we collect and use information from App Providers?
Our goal in collecting information is to provide and improve the appICE Service, to administer your Account, and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate the appICE Service.
When you, as an App Provider, create an Account or when you request information about the appICE Service, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”), such as your name, email address, phone number, and job title. We may also collect information that cannot be used to identify you, such as Account preferences.
Information Related to Use of the Site
We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or functionality.
Modifying and Deleting Your Information
You can access and modify the PII associated with your Account by accessing the user settings in the appICE Service. If you want us to delete your PII and your Account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We will respond to your request to access within 30 days.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You can connect your Facebook account with the appICE Service. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share with us certain PII, such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form.
2. End Users
How do we collect and use information from End Users?
When an App Provider embeds our tracking code into its Applications, we may access or obtain certain information that can be used to identify an End User (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”) such as an End User’s email address, name and phone number, depending on the selections the applicable App Provider makes via the appICE Service.
We also access or obtain certain non-identifying information about End Users’ use of App Providers’ Applications and End Users’ devices, such as: the actions taken, content viewed, messages viewed, messages clicked, offers accepted, search terms entered, advertisements clicked, applications opened, applications sent to the background, transactions in which an End User engaged, application name, application version, application bundle identifier, operating system name, operating system version, unique device identifiers, IP addresses, and access date, time and location information.
We analyze and use this information for the limited purpose of providing and improving the appICE Service to App Providers.
appICE collects information under the direction of our App Providers, and has no direct relationship with the End Users whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our App Providers and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our App Providers that use the appICE Service, please contact the App Provider directly. An End User who seeks access to, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccuracies in, his/her PII should direct his/her query to the appropriate App Provider (the data controller). If the App Provider requests that appICE remove all or a portion of the End Users’ PII, we will respond within 30 days.
How long do we retain information collected from End Users?
We will retain personal data we process on behalf of our App Providers for as long as needed to provide services to our App Providers. appICE will also retain this PII as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The following applies to both App Providers and End Users.
What App Provider and End User Information Do We Share With Third Parties?
Information Shared with Our Service Providers
We may engage third party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the appICE Service such as sending you email. These third-party Service providers have access to PII only for the purpose of performing the appICE Service on our behalf and are expressly obligated not to disclose or use your PII for any other purpose.
Information Shared with Third Parties
We may share aggregated, non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes. We will not share the End User PII collected for one App Provider with an unrelated App Provider.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions
Information that we collect from App Providers and information that we receive about End Users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. This means if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, such PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction. App Providers will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of PII, as well as any choices available regarding PII.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others
It is our policy to protect App Providers and End Users from having their privacy violated through abuse of the legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about App Providers or End Users to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any law, regulation or legal process, or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety, and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and (iii) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.

The Security of Information
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or receive about App Providers or End Users (including PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) via email or conspicuous posting on our Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as they are consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
