1. INFORMATION COLLECTION
(a) Information You Provide to Us
(b) Information Automatically Collected Through the App
Generally, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) store or collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Service (“Usage Information”).
This Usage Information may include:
• your device identifier or other unique identifier (“UID”). A device identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Service, and our computers identify your Device by its device identifier;
• your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information);

Tracking Technologies. We and our third-party service providers may use now and hereafter known methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information (“Tracking Technologies”). Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device. A few of the Tracking Technologies include, without limitation, the following:
Location-identifying Technologies. ATLAS may use GPS (global positioning systems) software and other location-based technologies such as Google API to locate you so we may verify your location and deliver you relevant content based on your location. Upon downloading the App, we provide location-based services to your approximate and/or exact location information.
In-app Tracking Methods. There are a variety of Tracking Technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, we may track user activity by generating an event record for actions taken by users in the App.
There may be other Tracking Technologies now and later devised and used by us in connection with the Service.
Tracking Technologies Choices and Consent.
We are giving you detailed notice of the Tracking Technologies and your limited choices regarding them so that your consent is meaningfully informed. For more information on your choices regarding Tracking Techologies, see Section 6 and Section 7 below.
Third Party Tracking and Do Not Track.
Also, various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms known as “do not track signals”. There is not yet an industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. For more information on “do not track” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
(c) Information Third Parties Provide About You
We may receive information about you from your friends and others that use the Service, such as when they post comments on the Service.
(d) Third-Party Content and Services

We will not use Personal Information provided by you in a customer inquiry communication to contact you for marketing purposes unrelated to your request.
3. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
(a) Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We may use third-party vendors and partners to perform certain services on behalf of us or the Service, such as providing advertisements and facilitating payments. These service providers may set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, potentially including Personal Information. We are not responsible for those third party technologies or activities arising out of them. However, some may offer you certain choices regarding their practices. For more information, see Section 7 below.
(b) To Protect the Rights of ATLAS and Others. To the fullest extent not prohibited by applicable law, we may also disclose your information if we believe in good faith that doing so is necessary or appropriate to: (i) protect or defend the rights, safety or property of ATLAS or third parties (including through the enforcement of this Policy, our Terms of Service, and other applicable agreements and policies); (ii) comply with legal and regulatory obligations and government requests (e.g., pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, subpoenas or court orders); (iii) comply with our obligations and commitments to safeguard the privacy and security of your information; or (iv) prevent unauthorized, improper or illegal activities on the Service. Further, we may disclose information about you as otherwise permitted under our Terms of Service or as specifically disclosed when we collect information from you.

We may display, reproduce, publish, distribute or otherwise use User-Generated Content and may or may not attribute it to you. Others may have access to this User-Generated Content and may have the ability to share it with third parties. Please think carefully before deciding what information you share, including Personal Information, in connection with your User-Generated Content. Please note that ATLAS does not control who will have access to the information that you choose to make public, and cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy or keep it secure.

We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any User-Generated Content that you disclose or receive from third parties through the Service.

We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any User-Generated Content or Personal Information that you disclose or receive from third parties through the Service. We are not responsible for any User-Generated Content or Personal Information you submit to third party services via our Service. Please think carefully before deciding what information you share, including Personal Information, in connection with your User-Generated Content.
5. THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
When you are on the Service you may be directed to other services that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control. For example, if you “click” on a link, the “click” may take you off the Service onto a different site. We encourage you to note when you leave our Service and to review the third-party privacy policies of all third-party locations and exercise caution in connection with them.
Be sure to review any available privacy policies and notices before submitting any Personal Information to a third party or its services, or otherwise interacting with Third Party Services or other locations you link to from our Service, and exercise caution in connection with them. We are not responsible for the availability, completeness or accuracy of such third parties’ policies or notices.
6. ADVERTISING & ANALYTICS SERVICES AND TRACKING
Some information about your browsing of the Service may be collected to deliver ads and/or other content to you on the Service.
ATLAS is not responsible for third parties or Third Party Services associated with advertising and analytics services, and related tracking activities. Consult their privacy policies and notices for information on their practices and see Section 6 and Section 7 regarding certain choices some of them may offer you. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, ATLAS currently does not alter ATLAS’s practices when ATLAS receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. For more information on tracking and “do not track,” see Section 1(b).
7. HOW YOU EXERCISE CHOICE AND CHANGE PREFERENCES
(a) Accessing And Changing Information.
The App may provide mechanisms allowing you to delete, correct or update some of the Personal Information you have provided ATLAS. ATLAS will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in ATLAS’s then-active databases as soon as practicable, but it is not always possible to completely change, remove or delete all of your information or public postings from ATLAS’s databases (California minors see Section 8) and residual and/or cached data may remain archived thereafter. Further, we reserve the right to retain data (i) as required by applicable law; and (ii) for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data is retained as permitted by applicable law (e.g., business records).
(b) Tracking Technologies Generally.
App-related Tracking Technologies in connection with non-browser usage (e.g., most functionality of a mobile app) can be disabled by uninstalling the App. To uninstall an App, follow the instructions from your operating system or handset manufacturer. In addition, you may have certain choices regarding in-APP Interest-based Advertising as described in the next section. For specific information on some of the choice options offered by third party analytics and advertising providers, see the next section.
(c) Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising.
Certain companies may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") AdChoices Program and may display an Advertising Option Icon for Interest-based Ads that link to an opt-out tool which allows you to exercise certain choices regarding targeting. You can learn more about the DAAAdChoices Program at http://www.youradchoices.com/ and its opt-out program for mobile apps at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices. In addition, certain advertising networks and exchanges may participate in the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). NAI has developed a tool that allows consumers to opt out of certain Interest-based Ads delivered by NAI members' ad networks. To learn more about opting out of such targeted advertising or to use the NAI tool, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Ads, you will continue to receive non-targeted ads. Further, opting out of one or more NAI or DAA members only means that those selected members should no longer under the DAA / NAI rules deliver certain targeted ads to you. This will affect this and other services, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different Device your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. ATLAS is not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs. However, ATLAS supports the ad industry’s 2009 Self-regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (http://www.iab.net/media/file/ven-principles-07-01-09.pdf) and expect that ad networks ATLAS directly engages to serve you interest-based ads will do so as well, though ATLAS cannot guaranty their compliance.
(d) Mobile Apps.
With respect to the App, you can stop all collection of information by uninstalling the App. Also, you may be able to exercise specific privacy choices, such as enabling or disabling certain location-based services, by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device. See also the prior section regarding in-App Interest-based Ads choices.
8. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Many of our Services are intended for a general audience and not directed to Children (i.e., under 13 years of age). We do not intend to collect personal information as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) (“Children’s Personal Information”) in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and believe we have, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove such data to the extent required by COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your child under 13 years of age has misidentified his or her age or that we have otherwise collected and/or are using Children’s Personal Information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact us at email@example.com and we will discontinue that account.
For more information on COPPA, visit http://www.onguardonline.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online or visit www.FTC.gov and look for parental guidance on child online safety and privacy.
Any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use the Service, and who have posted content or information on the Service, can request that such information be removed from the Service by contacting us at the e-mail or address set forth in the “Contact us” section below making such a request, stating that they personally posted such content or information and detailing where the content or information is posted. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it so the minor cannot be individually identified. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third-parties may have republished the post and archived copies of it may be stored by search engines and others that we do not control.
Parents may want to consider commercially available parental control protections to limit what minors can access online and/or monitor their minor children’s online activities. Examples include: www.netnanny.com; www.webwatcher.com and www.sentrypc.com. We do not endorse these or other services and not responsible for them.
We endeavor to incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use our Service, and provide us with your information, at your own risk.
