1. What information We collect

Our Privacy Notice applies to any users of the Service. We collect information when users operate Our Service to troubleshoot issues with a mobile device on which the Mobile App has been installed or devices which may be covered under Our premium services.

We collect your personal information in the following ways:

You may request removal of this personal data whenever you like. We also collect information about your usage of the Mobile App.

After you have registered for the Service and the Mobile App has been downloaded, information is collected from the mobile device periodically and stored within Our data center or the data center of a service provider to Us. This information varies depending upon the Mobile App features you may be eligible to use and may include: (a) contacts / address book; (b) calendar; (c) geo-location data; (d) call logs; (e) bookmarks; (f) text messages (e.g., SMS and MMS); (g) wallpaper (e.g., background images and graphics); (h) photos and videos; (i) installed mobile apps; (j) documents; and (k) audio recordings (e.g., music).

You may view certain personal information, and request modification or deletion of your personal information collected by the Mobile App at any time through the Web Portal.

We collect information about your usage of Our Mobile App and may use third party analytics tools to evaluate user actions relative to the Mobile App. For example, when you are logged in on the Mobile App, your usage information will be associated by Us to your account. Even if you are not logged into the Mobile App, We log information about devices used to access Our Service, including mobile device identifier.

Note: Geo-location data - To provide Our Services, consent is obtained from you to derive location information from your wireless operator, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device on which the Mobile App is installed. This location tracking of the mobile device may occur even when the application is not actively open and running, if the user has enabled location tracking in the settings for the mobile device. Such information may also be stored on the device. You may at any time discontinue these geo-location services by turning off location services on the device or uninstalling the Mobile App. You may also remove your personal information by closing the account. See Section 3.1 of this Notice to view how to close your account.

1.3 Customer Support
We collect information when you contact Us for customer support.

When you contact Our customer support (for example, when you use Our Tap to Talk function), We may access your personal information contained within the Service or your mobile device to respond to your request (e.g., lock your mobile device). We also use this information to track potential issues and trends and customize Our support responses to better serve you. When Our support representative accesses your device for troubleshooting purposes, you understand and acknowledge that while the technician is logged in to your account, she or he can access and extract information (such as settings) from the device. The technician will only access information needed to troubleshoot the device, and once the session is over, the technician will not retain any of the information on his or her screen. With the use of certain premium features, such as Remote Mobile Tech Support, Our technicians may be able to view messages and communications sent to the mobile device while providing support services. We do not use this information for advertising purposes. You may report any problems or security concerns with the Mobile App by contacting customer support or the Web Portal.

We use cookies and similar technologies, such as web beacons, to help Us recognize you, improve your experience, increase security and measure use and effectiveness of Our Services. Persistent cookies may be used when accessing the Web Portal or accessing resources We host through the Mobile App. These are pieces of information or data sent and stored to your browser or mobile device for record-keeping purposes. We use this information to analyze traffic patterns and improve the Service. If you prefer not to accept cookies into your browser, the help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, disabling cookies may result in certain parts of the Web Portal and resources not operating correctly or prevent you from taking full advantage of some of the features of the Service. Where permitted by applicable law, by visiting Our Web Portal and Mobile App, you consent to the placement of cookies and beacons in your browser and HTML-based e-mails in accordance with this Privacy Notice, which incorporates by reference Our Cookies Notice. In certain jurisdictions, the use of cookies by our partners, affiliates, and service providers is not covered by this Pocket Geek Privacy Notice. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners, affiliates, service providers use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate Our site.

Our Web Portal and Mobile App use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, in order to better understand your use of Our Web Portal and Mobile App, and how We can improve the Service. In general, Google Analytics collects information such as visits to a website, what pages are visited, and what other website you visited immediately prior to coming to a particular website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a website, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics places a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to Our Web Portal is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the website, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected on Our website to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects on Our website, please review the Google article “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps,” located on Google’s website here or any successor URL. View Our Cookies Notice for information about opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics.

Our third party partners may employ clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons), images, and scripts that help them better manage content on Our site. We may combine information from third parties with information gathered through the use of the Service for market research, analysis and trending purposes.

Some browsers offer a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal whereby you may indicate your preference regarding tracking and cross-site tracking. Although We do not currently employ technology that recognizes DNT signals, We will only process your personal information in accordance with this Notice. We engage third parties, such as marketing or analytics partners, who may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use Our sites. Third parties may only send you marketing communications if you have opted into such use. Where required by applicable law, You may request that We not share your information with third parties for these purposes by contacting Us through customer service or the Web Portal.

1.6 Online Advertising
We may collect information about your online activities on Our Web Portal and Mobile App to provide you with advertising tailored to your interests. You may be able to opt out of receiving interest based ads.

We may collect information about your online activities on Our Web Portal and Mobile App to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. For example, We may use third party advertising features in order to provide you with relevant ads from Us.

You may receive interest-based ads from Us and from Our ad providers that are specifically tailored to your interests. These ads have been selected based on your use of Our Web Portal and Mobile App, including the information you provide to us, as well as other information obtained by Us and Our ad providers. It is also possible that such interest-based advertising has been tailored to the interests that advertisers have inferred from your browsing of Our Web Portal, or from your use of other websites or applications with which a third-party has partnered, in order to provide advertising. Where required by applicable law, your opt-in consent for such processing is obtained.

We also may engage with third-party advertising networks. Ad networks may include third-party ad servers, ad agencies, sponsors, ad technology vendors and research firms. Ad networks may set and access their own cookies, beacons and similar technologies on your device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including usage information, by tracking your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties. These ad networks may use the information they collect for their own purposes. We and Our network advertisers may target advertisements for products and services in which you might be interested based on your visits to both our Web Portal and Mobile App. Such cookies track users who visit websites with which they are affiliated and place ads unrelated to Us.

If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt out of some network advertising programs that use your information, such as Google Ads by clicking here. You may also visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) Opt Out Page. Please note that even if you choose to opt out, you may still see advertisements while browsing, but the advertisements you see may be non-specific. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have placed cookies on your browser and provides opt out options with respect to those companies. The NAI opt out may not be effective for mobile applications. Please note that We may also engage with ad networks that do not participate in the NAI Opt Out, and those networks may offer their own opt-out choices.

You may choose not to share certain data with Us by adjusting settings on the Mobile App. In addition, you may close your account as described in Section 3.1 of this Notice.
