The Terms of Use Statigram Site are incorporated herein by reference. By using the Site you agree to be bound by the Terms of Use Statigram Site, whether you are a User or an Organizer.

Capitalized terms hereunder shall be defined under the Terms of Use Statigram Site.

2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION AND USE BY STATIGRAM

2.1 Collection of information

You are free to browse the Site without revealing any personal information making it possible to identify you. However, once you have sent us your identifiable personal information, you are no longer anonymous to us.

We collect two types of information from Users/Organizers of the Site: “Automatic Anonymous Information” (hereafter known as “AAI”) and “Identifiable Personal Information” (hereafter known as “IPI”). We process AAI and IPI differently, and the following articles describe both AAI and IPI and indicate how each type of information is collected and used by Statigram.

The Site/Contest Tool make it possible to monitor certain information automatically, based on your behaviour. This information does not identify you personally. We use this information to improve the Content and functionality of the Site/Contest Tool, and to better understand and satisfy our visitors. This information may include the browser you use, your IP address or other information. This information is referred to herein as the AAI.

IPI is individually identifiable information about you that allows us to identify or contact you. Some of the Site’s functions require asking you for certain IPI, such as your e-mail address, billing address, and/or other personal information. You may choose to provide IPI in order to access certain functions on the Site, to Publish your Content, to create an Account, to organize a Photo Contest, to participate in a Photo Contest or to make comments. When possible, we tell you which fields of information are required and which are optional. You can always choose not to provide certain information, but in that case it may be that you cannot use certain of the Site’s functions mentioned above.

Statigram does not collect or keep information on Users/Organizers whom we know to be under 18 years of age.

2.2 Use of your information

We use your AAI which we collect mainly in order to improve the quality of the Site and to provide you with personalized service. We may also use your AAI internally, to manage the Site.

When you register on the Site we may ask you for certain IPI, such as your e-mail address, so as to provide you with different functions. Your consent to this promotional use and disclosure of this information is a condition for your participation.

2.3 Shared information

The following provisions describe some of the ways in which your IPI may be disclosed to third parties: we may make use of third parties to provide functions on our behalf in order to improve our communication and our efforts in the areas of promotion, marketing or other services. These third parties may include approved service providers, consultants and other companies working with us (referred to collectively as “Representatives”). They have access only to the IPI necessary to perform their functions and may not share the IPI with others or use it for any purpose other than providing or improving the Site.

Statigram reserves the right to share or transfer your IPI in order to comply with a legal order, disclose your activities or IPI as part of the application of the law when, at its sole discretion, Statigram believes it necessary or appropriate, as part of an investigation of fraud, violation of intellectual property rights or some other illegal activity or activity that may engage your or our liability.
