We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and
usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent
by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit,
add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the
Service. We collect and use this analytics information with
analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably
be used to identify any particular individual User.
Cookies and similar technologies:
technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to
collect information about how you use BikePics and provide features to you.
We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services
placed by us or the third party.
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. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app
is downloaded to your browser or device.
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.
We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users
which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are
clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate
reporting and improvement of the Service.
When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our
Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device,
and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device
identifiers are small data files or similar data structures
stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely
identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored
in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection
with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent
to the device by BikePics.
A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third
party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help
us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads.
Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or
availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
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 other
data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more
interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using other’s
APIs then, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo
and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if your
photo is made public by you in accordance with your privacy settings.
