Data Controller and Owner
Types of Data Collected
Generally, we collect information about your identity such as your name, age, email address, what Schools you attend, and what Classes you are enrolled in (“personal information”) as well as non identifying information (collectively “Personal Data”). Personal Data may be collected through voluntary input or automatically when the Site is used or through your voluntary posting of Content on the Site. For example, in order to register with inCrowd, you will be required to input personal and other information. While utilizing the Site or making any In Site Purchases you may provide us with additional information, such as your address, photos or other media, messages, or updates. This information may be collected either through a website or a mobile application, and may be sent to servers throughout the United States. Even if we do have anything for sale on the Site, we will not store your credit card or other payment information.
In using the Site, you authorize us to collect, parse, and retain data relating to our provision of the Site. Failure to provide certain Personal Data may make it impossible for this Site to provide its services.
You are responsible for any Personal Data of third parties obtained, published or shared through this Site and confirm that you have the third party's consent to provide the Personal Data to us. You also agree not to disseminate in any way the Personal Data of other users of the Site.
We use various technologies to collect information from your device and about your activities on our Site.
Information Collected Automatically: We automatically collect information from your browser or device when you visit our Site. This information could include your IP address, device ID and type, your browser type and language, the operating system used by your device, access times, your mobile device’s geographic location while our Site is actively running, and the referring website address.
Mobile Device IDs: If you're using our app, we use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later), instead of cookies, to recognize you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our app. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone. Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use of the app, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about app usage.
Third Party Advertising: We may allow service providers, advertising companies and ad networks, and other third parties to display advertisements on our Site. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. We do not provide any non-anonymized personal information to third parties.
