Effective date: March 3, 2016
Welcome to PicScor ("PicScor," "we," "us" or "our"). PicScor provides a fast and accurate way to review and score your social media post in terms of how well it reaches your target audience and grows your following!
1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect the following types of information.
Information you provide us directly:
■ Your username, password and e-mail address when you register for a PicScor account.
■ Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., first and last name, picture, phone number, email address). This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on PicScor.
■ User Content (e.g., photos, comments, and other materials) that you post to your social media accounts.
Finding your friends on PicScor:
■ If you choose, you can use our "Search" feature to locate other people with PicScor accounts through a search of names and usernames on social media.
■ Note about "Invite Friends" feature: If you choose to invite someone to the Service through our "Invite friends" feature, you may select a person directly from the contacts list on your device and send a text or email from your personal account. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to communications sent from your device, and because this invitation is coming directly from your personal account, PicScor does not have access to or control this communication.
■ We use our unique software to help us measure traffic and usage trends for social media. This software analyzes the traffic (likes, comments, etc.) to create a review or score of how well the social media post resonates with the userís target audience. We collect and use this analytics information so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.
Log file information:
■ Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app.
■ When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.
■ Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted.
■ Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo.
2. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
■ help you efficiently access your information after you sign in
■ remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service;
■ provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Service

3. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION
We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside PicScor without your consent, except as noted in this Policy.
Parties with whom we may share your information:
■ We may share User Content and your information (including but not limited to, information from log files, device identifiers, location data, and usage data) with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that PicScor is part of, or that become part of that group ("Affiliates"). Affiliates may use this information to help provide, understand, and improve the Service (including by providing analytics) and Affiliates' own services (including by providing you with better and more relevant experiences). But these Affiliates will honor the choices you make about who can see your photos.
■ We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.
Parties with whom you may choose to share your User Content:
■ Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to social media platforms, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you set. To change your privacy settings on PicScor, please change your profile setting on the social media platforms. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared by others.
What happens in the event of a change of control:
Responding to legal requests and preventing harm:
■ We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.
