We reserve the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will alert you that changes have been made by updating the “Last Revised” date at the top of the Policy. We encourage you to review this Policy from time to time to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used and shared.
As used herein, the term “personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address or credit card number) or information about an individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the autoGraph Sites or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection, use and disclosure of aggregate information.
We collect information from you in various ways when you use our Sites. For example, we collect information you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you create an account or advertar(s), provide comments about specific brands or stores, send us an email, fill out a form or request information. Such information may include personal information, such as your name, email address, photos, brand preferences, information about the ads you like, dislike, click on, save and/or share with others, and other contact information you choose to provide. We may also collect your location information, demographic information and information about your brand preferences if you choose to provide such information.
When you use our Sites, some information may also be automatically collected, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique device identifier (“UDID”), browser type, browser language, and access times etc. We may also automatically collect your location information if you consent to such collection. We may treat the foregoing information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it may be used in the aggregate only.
We may use the personal information we collect for the purposes described in this Policy or for purposes elsewhere on our Sites. For example, we may use personal information:
- to provide the services, products or information you request;
- to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display targeted advertisements, deals and offers that we believe will be of interest to you;
- to request feedback and to otherwise contact you about your use of our Sites;
- to respond to your emails, submissions, questions, comments, requests and complaints and provide customer service;
- to monitor and analyze usage and trends, determine the effectiveness of our advertisements and personalize and improve the Sites, such a providing ads, content or features that match users’ profiles or interests and increasing the functionality and user friendliness of the Sites;
- to send you surveys, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages and otherwise facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the Sites;
- to notify you about important changes to our Sites;
- to detect fraud;
- for human resource purposes;

- for any other purpose for which the information was collected.
We may store and process personal information in the country from which it was collected, in the United States and other countries.
We will not share the personal information we collect from you with third parties, except as described in this Policy. For example, we may share personal information as follows:
- with vendors, consultants and other service providers (collectively “Service Providers”) who work for us, are engaged by us and need access to such information to carry out their work;
- when you give us your consent to do so, including if we notify you in the Sites that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information;
- in an aggregated or anonymized form that does not directly identify you (e.g., we may share aggregated information about your interests and geographic preferences and/or location if given, with advertisers and third party deal sites for marketing purposes, but we will not share personal information with these parties without your consent);
- when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or legal processes or respond to lawful requests or legal authorities, including responding to lawful subpoenas, warrants or court orders;
- when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of autoGraph, our users, our employees or others, including without limitation to protect autoGraph and our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of our Sites;
- in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of our business assets.
You understand that when you use the Sites, information you post in any profile, comments, forums and other interactive features of the Sites, as well as any information you share with individuals through the mobile application or through social network sites, will be available to other users and in some cases may be publicly available (e.g., when you choose to display an ad you “like” on Facebook or Twitter).
We are not responsible for the actions of Service Providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their privacy practices before disclosing information directly to any such parties. Nothing herein restricts the sharing/selling of aggregated or anonymized information, which may be shared/sold with third parties without your consent.
We take reasonable measures to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional emails from us by following the instructions in those emails or by emailing us at privacy@autoGraph.me. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your account or our ongoing business relations. You may opt out of further collection of you location information by requesting we delete your account by emailing privacy@autoGraph.me.
You may also change your contact preferences by requesting that we update, change or delete your information by emailing privacy@autoGraph.me.
