USERS OF THE OPEN COAST WEBSITE GENERALLY


“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. Like most website operators, Open Coast gathers from users of the Open Coast Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Open Coast to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Open Coast analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Open Coast better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Open Coast is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Open Coast may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Open Coast Website.

ANALYTICS


We may partner with selected third parties to allow tracking technology on the Open Coast Website, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact with the Open Coast Website and our services over time. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity

MOBILE DEVICE TERMS


  • Mobile Device. If you use a mobile device to access the Website or download any of our mobile applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address.
  • Geo-Location Information. Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our mobile application or our services, except that it may be possible for Open Coast to determine from an IP address the geographic location of your point of connectivity, in which case we may gather and use such general location data.
  • Push Notifications. We send you push notifications if you choose to receive them, letting you know when someone has sent you a message or for other service-related matters. If you wish to opt-out from receiving these types of communications, you may turn them off in your device’s settings.
  • Mobile Analytics. We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. This software may record information, such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, and performance data and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally-Identifying Information you submit within the mobile application.

SOCIAL MEDIA


We may provide you the option to connect your account on the Open Coast Website to your account on some social networking sites for the purpose of logging in, uploading information or enabling certain features on the Website. When logging in using your social network credentials, we may collect the Personally-Identifying Information you have made publicly available on the social networking site, such as your name, profile picture, cover photo, username, gender, friends network, age range, locale, friend list and any other information you have made public. Once connected, other users may also be able to see information about your social network, such as the size of your network and your friends, including common friends.

By connecting your account on the Open Coast Website to your account on any social networking site, you hereby consent to the continuous release of information about you to us. We will not send any of your account information to the connected social networking site without first disclosing that to you. Each social network may further allow you to set privacy controls around your information on their system, and our collection of information will always follow such controls and permissions. This feature is subject to continuous change and improvement by us and each social networking site involved, and therefore the available features and shared information are subject to change without notice to you.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION


As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person.

  2. Logging in with social network credentials,
  3. participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements,

CHILDREN


The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") protects the online privacy of children under 13 years of age.

Any person who provides Personally-Identifying Information through the Website represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older.

DO-NOT-TRACK POLICY


Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected.
