This Privacy Policy, provided by SocialCash (“Company”, “we”, “our”, or “us”), effective as of September 1, 2022, informs you (“you” or “your”) how we gather and use, and the circumstances under which we may disclose, information we collect from users through our website (www.socialcash.com) and our apps SocialCash (collectively, the “Site”) and other related software, interactive features, and/or services operated by us that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Service”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to our information collection activities outside of the Service or to third-party websites (unless otherwise stated below or at the time of collection). By using the Service or otherwise accessing the Site, you agree to our Terms of Service, and to our collection, use and disclosure practices, and other activities as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree and consent, discontinue use of the Service.

Collection of Information

Information You Provide

The information you provide as part of your use of the Service and that we collect may include information that identifies you personally (whether alone or in combination), such as your name, address, phone number, email address, age, and gender (“Personal Information”). To properly match you with any third-party survey providers or others as part of the Service, we may ask you to provide additional information, including but not limited to your relationship status, household information and income, product preferences, shopping habits, household income, political affiliation, and job title. You may choose to voluntarily submit certain other information to us through the Service or to the third-party survey providers. We use this information to find you eligible surveys as part of the Service. Any information provided to third-party survey providers is not covered by this Privacy Policy and we encourage you to review the privacy policy and terms of service of each third-party survey provider you interact with. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose information that has been “de-identified” for any purpose. Personal Information once de-identified is not subject to this Privacy Policy and we and our service providers may treat it as non-Personal Information and use it without obligation to you except as prohibited by applicable law. The Company will retain your Personal Information and any other data collected for as long as is necessary to provide the Service, maintain business records to satisfy tax, legal and other regulatory requirements, and protect and defend against potential legal claims.

Information Collected Automatically

We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically record certain usage information about you ("Usage Information"). Usage Information collected is more thoroughly described below. We use this information for a variety of purposes, including to help personalize our Service for you. Your Internet Protocol Address and other items automatically collected may be considered Personal Information. The methods that may be used on the Service to collect Usage Information include:

  • Log Information: Log information is data about your use of the Service, such as IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data, which is stored in log files.
  • Information Collected by Tracking Technologies: We and our third-party service providers may automatically collect information about your interactions with the Service or emails using various tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels"), embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, device fingerprinting, in-app tracking methods, and other tracking technologies now and hereafter developed ("Tracking Technologies").
  • Cookies: A cookie is a small data file transferred to your computer (or other device) when it is used to access our Service. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including to enable certain features of our Service, to better understand how you interact with our Service and to monitor aggregate usage by visitors and online traffic routing. Cookies may remain on your device for extended periods of time. See our Cookie Policy for additional information.
  • Web Beacons (“Tracking Pixels”): Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as "internet tags" or "clear gifs," embedded in web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to count the number of visitors to the Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, and to count content views.
  • Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party with whom we work, active only while you are connected to the Service, and deleted or otherwise deactivated when you are no longer connected to the Service.
  • Location-identifying Technologies: GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering, and other location-aware technologies locate (sometimes precisely) you for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting relevant content based on your location.
  • Device Fingerprinting: Device fingerprinting is the process of analyzing and combining sets of information elements from your device’s browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed fonts, in order to create a “fingerprint” of your device and uniquely identify your device and applications.
  • In-App Tracking Methods: There are a variety of tracking technologies that may be included in mobile apps, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifiers or other identifiers such as “Ad IDs” to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps.

Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third-Party Services (defined below) may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain Third Party Services.
