PRIVACY POLICY

This “Privacy Policy” describes how PicCollage (“PicCollage”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) protects your privacy when you use PicCollage, which includes the website located at www.piccollage.com and all mobile phone and web applications developed by Cardinal Blue Software, Inc. (each, a “PicCollage Service” and collectively, the “PicCollage Services”), with the exception of the “PicCollage EDU” application, which has a separate privacy policy.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH BELOW, YOU MAY NOT USE THE PICCOLLAGE SERVICE.

This Privacy Policy applies to information (including personal information) collected through the PicCollage Services. For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "personal information" means information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Personal information does not include technical, device, or usage information that cannot be used to identify you personally even if we combine it with other data about you, nor does it include "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about the use of the PicCollage Services or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information have been removed. This Privacy Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate and non-personal information, and we may share such data about our users with third parties for various purposes. This Privacy Policy is part of and incorporated into PicCollage's Terms of Service (“Terms of Service”).

We collect information from and about certain web-connected devices on which you use the PicCollage Services (such as mobile phones and computers that utilize a version of the iOS that is older than iOS 14) and combine this information across different devices. For example, we use information collected about your use of the PicCollage Services on your phone to better personalize the content (including ads) or features you see when you use the PicCollage Services on another device, such as your laptop, or to measure whether you took an action in response to an ad we showed you on your phone on a different device.

With Whom We Share Your Personal Information

Personal information (and non-personal information) collected through the PicCollage Services may be shared with companies and organizations that perform services on our behalf (for example, companies that provide data management or other support services to us such as Heroku). We may share your personal information (and non-personal information) with third party ads services which include Google, Facebook and InMobi to serve you relevant advertising and market our products, but we won't sell your personal information. Also, we may disclose the personal information we collect through the PicCollage Services when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to:

We may disclose your information without giving you prior notice if we believe it is necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defenses you might have to efforts by third parties to compel disclosure of your information, including legal orders from the government. Your personal information and other data collected by us may be transferred to another company that has acquired our stock or assets, for example, as a result of a sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation. If such a transfer occurs, the acquiring company's use of your personal information will still be subject to this Privacy Policy.
