This policy describes (i) the types of information we may collect when you access, and/or use the features of the Widget; (ii) how we use that information, and the purposes for which we collect it; and (iii) and how we disclose such information.
As a pre-loaded feature/widget within your device, Widget helps you to discover new applications without having to search for them and provides you with the easy option to download your desired applications. Certain Widget features may have the capability to enable you to download applications without redirecting you to Google Play Store.
Please note that, while Widget facilitates the downloading of applications, each application installed will have its own terms and permissions for use of data (just as any other Android application workflow) and these terms will be displayed through the Widget. We, therefore, urge you to carefully read and familiarize yourself with the same. Pursuant to your interaction with such third party application(s) after downloading/installing the same, you may elect to provide certain data to them or they may collect your data from your use of such application. Further, applications installed may, on its own discretion or as per settings on your device or permissions provided, choose to upgrade itself. Content/ product/ services of the third party applications are not under our control, therefore, Widget shall not in any way be responsible for your use of the same or such application’s use of your data.
Widget may also be upgraded for maintaining service compatibility, providing security, fixing security bugs or offering new features. We have no obligation to offer any technical support during such scenarios.
We are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy rights. Widget may collect certain personal or non-personal information about you in various ways as further set out in this Policy.
Personal information does not include aggregate or anonymous information. Your information that Widget may collect and use are as follows: IP Address, location information, Google Ad ID, Android ID, MEID, Application inventory (list of applications installed on the device and information on usage of such applications), carrier customer or subscriber ID. We may also receive information associated with a subscriber ID, so, we urge you to consult your carrier’s advertising programs for options regarding participation in such programs. We may use your information to tailor the suite of application suggestions that Widget displays and is based on the applications already in use or are otherwise relevant to you. We may also use your information to create audience segments for the benefit of our advertising partners and/or show you advertising content tailored to your interest. We do not infer location information from Wi-Fi identifiers where the location access permission is turned off.
Some of these data sets may be considered to be personal information in certain jurisdictions, in which case, we ensure compliance with applicable privacy laws in our collection, processing or use of the same, to the extent applicable in such jurisdictions including certain data subject rights that you may enjoy under such applicable laws. We do not collect sensitive information such as biometric data, sexual preference, physical or mental health information, political opinions, religious beliefs, credit card and other banking related information, etc.
We may share your information with third parties for the purposes set out under Section 2 in the ways that are described in this Policy. We may disclose your information:
● as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;
● when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; and
● with our trusted service providers, advertising or business partners and affiliates including developers of other widgets on device, who have agreed to adhere to the principles set forth in this Policy and provide for adequate technical measures in accordance with applicable privacy laws including directives of regulatory bodies. Some of these activities may be construed to be “selling” under relevant privacy laws which apply to you and provides you with the option to opt-out. Please note that this Policy clearly indicates the categories of data collected and the purposes of use. Please see Section 8 to see your opt-out options.
We use reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the information we collect about you in compliance with its legal and privacy requirements and contractual obligations. We also seek appropriate contractual protection from our partners and service providers regarding their collection, use or treatment of user data.
We will retain your data for as long as you use the Widget and for a reasonable time thereafter in aggregate format, as necessary for internal analytical purposes, to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce agreements. If you’d like us to delete the information we have collected about you through your device, please contact us at email@example.com.
Widget is meant for general audience and is not targeted towards users below sixteen (16) years of age in the United States, therefore, we do not knowingly request access to collect or process personal information of any such user or “children” as such term is defined under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not obtain the age of a user and do not use the Widget to knowingly collect or solicit data from or market to children under the age of sixteen (16) in the United States or any other jurisdiction with similar age gating privacy laws subject to the same. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will promptly delete or anonymize such information from our files.
