Thanks for using Scoopt!
Scoopt is a limited liability company incorporated in England and Wales with its registered office at Scoopt Ltd, 90 Fetter Lane, London, United Kingdom EC4A 1EQ.
We are committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of our Scoopt digital application (“App”) and the Scoopt website located at http://scoopt.com (“Site”), our “Software” (which includes the software we developed to run our App, any related documentation or data distributed to you and any future fixes, updates and upgrades), and the various services that we provide (“Service”) (we refer to the Site, the App, the Software and the Service collectively as “Scoopt”).
We may collect “personal data” (data that identifies you). For example, in order to use certain Scoopt features, we may ask you to register and create an account, which may require you to provide us with data including your name, email address, your image, your age, your gender and a password. You may choose to sign in to Scoopt using a third party login service (e.g. Facebook or Twitter) which authorises us to interact with your accounts including for the purpose of accessing and publishing data (e.g. your image, your tweets) within Scoopt as well as on these third party services.
It is our policy not to ask you for personal data that we don’t really need.
We may also collect non-personal data. For example, we may track and compile data with respect to App and Site usage and mobile location coordinates on a non-personally identifiable basis. When you use the App or visit our Site we may automatically log your IP (internet protocol) address which is a unique identifier for your computer or other access device. This will typically tell us the date and time of your App usage or Site visit, your choice of ISP (internet service provider) and your geographic location.
Information about your App usage and Site visit habits and information you post is shared with the public according to default preferences set when you join Scoopt; these can be updated by you at a later time under the Settings menu. Your profile is visible to your friends and the public in accordance with your settings.
If you submit any information to Scoopt, you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to any such submission. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online, that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk.
We may collect other personal data from you so that we can provide Scoopt to you and enhance your experience of Scoopt. For example, we may use your previous App usage and Site visit habits to present recommendations to you and to make you aware of special offers, new products or services or functionality changes relating to Scoopt. We may personalise your repeat visits to our Site and formulate our marketing on our Site so that it is targeted based on your App usage and Site visit behaviour. We may use your personal data to contact you and, if you agree, to enable our sponsors and affiliates and partners to contact you.
We want you to retain as much control as possible over your personal data and your use of Scoopt generally. You may use certain Scoopt features without any registration. If you would like us to delete/correct personally identifiable data, let us know and we will action your request as soon as practicable. If you would like to dictate what is published and what others can see, please update your preferences accordingly. If you would like to modify the ways we access and use data we obtain as a result of our interaction with third party login services such as Facebook or Twitter, please change your app settings on these third party login services.
Make sure you keep your account and password secure and that access to your device is protected by password.
We may share non-personal data with third parties to, for example (but not by way of limitation), improve Scoopt and to enable data aggregation (as described above).
Scoopt is concerned with keeping your data secure and protecting it from inappropriate disclosure. We implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your personal data on our systems. Any personal data collected by us is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. Where sensitive data is collected by us it will be transmitted and protected via Secure Socket Layer technology and HTTPS protocol and encrypted in our databases to be accessed only as stated above. If and when we use subcontractors to store your data, we will not relinquish control of your personal data or expose it to security risks that would not have arisen had the data remained in our possession. However, unfortunately, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of Scoopt to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal data you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us.
In an attempt to enhance users’ experiences of Scoopt, we may choose various third party websites to link to, and frame within Scoopt. We also participate in co-branding and other relationships to offer e-commerce and other services and features to our users. However, even if the third party is affiliated with us, we have no control over these linked sites, each of which has separate privacy and data collection practices independent of us. Data collected by our co-brand partners or third party web sites (even if offered on or through Scoopt) is not received by us. As such, we have no responsibility or liability for the treatment of your data by these sites. These linked sites are for your convenience and you access them at your own risk. When you sign into Scoopt using a third party login service (e.g. Facebook or Twitter), your use is also subject to these third party’s Privacy Policies and in accordance with your account settings with these third parties.
