INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH PIONAIRE PLATFORMS
Although you may provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your phone number, e-mail address, credit card or other payment information, and the like) when purchasing the Pionaire Mobile Application, this information is provided to the online/mobile application store in connection with your purchase and/or registration of the Mobile Application. The online/mobile application store does not share your information with Pionaire. Except as set forth herein, when you utilize any Pionaire Platform, you do so anonymously. Personal information that could be used to identify you as an individual is not automatically collected. However, there are several ways in which information about you may be collected through the Pionaire Platform. The information that we collect through your download and/or use of the Pionaire Platform is limited to (i) the personal information that you voluntarily choose to provide through contest entries or site/app registration, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and similar information; (ii) any public profile information within your social media profile on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat, including, but not limited to, your first and/or last name, profile picture, and e-mail address.
For the support of our internal operations and to continue to improve and maintain the Pionaire Platform, Pionaire collects your device identifier (“Device ID”) and IP address. We do not access or store information that you have saved on your mobile device such as contacts and appointments. In addition, if permitted by your mobile device settings, the Pionaire Mobile Application may provide, to third-party advertisers, (i) your Device ID and (ii) your precise location data.
HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect only information that is needed, and we tell you how we use it. We limit the collection of information about you to what we need to know to manage your user experience; provide customer service, including responding to your questions and communicating with you about your activities on the Pionaire Platform; make access to certain areas and features of the Pionaire Platform available to you; verify your identity; offer new products and services (if applicable); notify you of changes to Pionaire policies; perform market research, analytics and operations; tailor content, advertisements, and offers, contests and sweepstakes we make available to you; improve the Pionaire Platform; fulfill any legal and regulatory requirements; and for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your personal information or otherwise with your consent. Under certain circumstances we may share location data with our third party partners for market research and other data analytics related purposes. We tell you about the general uses of information we collect about you, and we will provide additional explanation if requested. You may change, update or add additional information about yourself at any time through the Pionaire Platforms that offer this feature. If a Pionaire Platform does not currently provide this ability, you can still change your data profile by contacting us.
As a result of providing your personal information to us, the Pionaire Platform can provide a more customized and personal experience, making your interaction with us more productive, helpful and fun, and will enhance the services and offers that we can bring to you. If you provide us with your e‐mail address or cell phone number, or have done so in the past, we may send you e‐mail or text offers or newsletters. These offers or newsletters are based on information you provided in your registration forms, surveys, or from information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyle. These e‐mail/text offers will come from Pionaire only. Your information, email address or cell phone number is never sold to a third party. All offers are carefully developed to guarantee that they meet our standards. Our goal is to target offers that you will find to be of value to you. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these communications from us by simply replying to the e‐mail address or text number included in every e‐mail/text message that you receive from us.
From time to time, we may offer contests or other promotions on the Pionaire Platform. If you enter a contest or sweepstakes, or participate in a promotional event, we will ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and e-mail address). Among other things, we will need this information to contact you if you win, and we may also use this information for marketing purposes. We may share this information with any sponsors and prize providers of the contest, sweepstakes, or promotional event; sponsors and prize providers will be identified in the official rules. We may also share this information with other third‐party service providers that help administer our contests, sweepstakes, and promotional events, such as by conducting drawings, and/or delivering prizes to winners. If you do not want to provide the requested information or have the information provided to sponsors, prize providers, or other third‐party service providers, please do not enter the contest, sweepstakes, or participate in the promotional event.
We monitor URL click‐throughs found in our electronic communications. The click‐through rate is reviewed in order to track (i) participation in contests and sweepstakes to judge effectiveness and award prizes; (ii) your interests and preferences; (iii) response rates for marketing purposes; or (iv) to report to a client in aggregate form only, the response of listeners. Individual activity is never shared with employees or third parties.
