Information Collection and Use
The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you:
We want to inform you that whenever you use our Service, in a case of an error in the app we collect data and information (through third party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.
While using the Service we may log data identifying the pages you visit. We use this data for determining popularity of pages, and may use this information in promotions, such as a mailing list to indicate the weeks most popular patterns, shops, and projects by view count. Such promotions will never include any of your personal viewing history information.
Disclosing Personal Information
We do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or companies except when we have your permission.
Notwithstanding the above, if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary, we may share your personal information under the following circumstances:
• To satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request (which may include, but is not limited to, responding to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or establishing or exercising our legal rights or defending against legal claims)
• To enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof;
• To detect, prevent, investigate, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or
• To protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Alpaca, its users, or the public, as required or permitted by law, and to protect against potential threats to the physical safety of another person.
The Service may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet such targeting criteria (such as users in a particular geographic area).
We do not provide any personal information to an advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad, however, by interacting with or viewing the ad, you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
When you interact with an advertisement, we will save a record of your interaction with the advertisement to help up determine what ads to show you in the future. We may share certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information with third parties (such as number of users who click on a particular advertisement), but that information shall not identify you individually.
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:
• To facilitate our Service;
• To provide the Service on our behalf;
• To perform Service-related services; or
• To assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
We want to inform users of this Service that these third parties have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.
We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
