Privacy Policy

(Updated 11/15/2014)

It’s the 21st century, and your privacy is more important than ever. CrowdAlbum endeavors to follow strict guidelines regarding the personally identifiable and non-personally indentifiable information it collects. The below policy explains these guidelines, and what CrowdAlbum is doing to ensure that your privacy is first and foremost in what we do.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CrowdAlbum 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. CrowdAlbum’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CrowdAlbum’s visitors use its website, and to continually optimize the website visitor’s experience.

Crunching The Numbers

CrowdAlbum may collect statistics and data about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, CrowdAlbum may monitor the most popular photos or CrowdAlbums its site, and display this information publicly. However, CrowdAlbum does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this policy.

Protecting Personally Identifiable Information

CrowdAlbum does not collect personally identifiable information, other than that which is made available through the third party APIs of the platforms from which CrowdAlbum indexes data and information.

By using a platform that makes your personally identifiable information publicly available, you have consented to the transfer of such information to CrowdAlbum. The information that CrowdAlbum indexes via these third party APIs includes Source Platform, URL for shared image or video, user profile information including Username, User ID, full name, follower count, profile image URL, date the photo or video was shared, location at which photo was shared, including latitude and longitude, caption of photo or video, any hashtag(s) used in caption, any URL(s) included in caption, size & dimension of photo or video, engagement information of photo including Likes or Favorites. CrowdAlbum may share this potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information with employees, contractors, affiliated organizations, and partners, to be used only in accordance with the Terms of Service of the platform from which the information was obtained.

CrowdAlbum discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CrowdAlbum believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CrowdAlbum, third parties or the public at large. CrowdAlbum 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. CrowdAlbum uses cookies to help CrowdAlbum identify and track visitors, their usage of CrowdAlbum’s websites, and their website access preferences. CrowdAlbum visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using CrowdAlbum’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of CrowdAlbum’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If CrowdAlbum and/or its assets were acquired in a legitimate business sale or transaction, 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 CrowdAlbum may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, CrowdAlbum may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in CrowdAlbum’s sole discretion. CrowdAlbum encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
