Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Smap we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team at help@smapit.co.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Smap collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Smap’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Smap’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Smap may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Application Users

"Guest" users of the Smap application may share their non-personally-identifying information such as their device's location and their device's UUID. Smap’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better enhance the "Guest" Smap experience. From time to time, Smap may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Registered users of the Smap application choose to interact with Smap in ways that require Smap to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Smap gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to authenticate with either their Twitter or Facebook account, which may include information that personally identifies the user. The user may also supply additional information at their own discretion in filling out their user profile on Smap. In each case, Smap collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user's interaction with Smap. Smap does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain application-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Smap may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or application. For instance, Smap may monitor the most popular public content on its platform, or use spam reported by other users to help identify spam. Smap may display this information publicly or provide it to others.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Smap discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Smap’s behalf or to provide services available at Smap’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Smap’s website or application, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Smap will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Smap discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Smap believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Smap, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Smap application and have supplied your email address, Smap may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Smap and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Smap takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Smap uses cookies to help Smap identify and track visitors, their usage of Smap website, and their website access preferences. Smap visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Smap’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Smap’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Smap, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Smap goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Smap may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Smap may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Smap’s sole discretion. Smap encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site or the Smap application after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
