This Privacy Statement applies to our collection, use and disclosure of information about you on Pocket Prep, Inc.’s (“Pocket Prep”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) websites (“Websites’), mobile applications (“Apps”) (together “Services”) and social media platforms and does not apply to third party websites or apps accessible via hyperlinks from this Website. This Privacy Statement applies to Personal Information (defined below) we obtain from and about individuals interacting with our Services regarding our products and services. Please see the privacy statement on our Application for Employment form for job applicants. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Statement before using our Services. By using our Services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement. Specifically, you authorize the collection, processing, retention, and disclosure of information about you by us and our affiliates, business partners, and service providers for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement or as described to you during your interactions with the Apps. For example, we might clarify our practices when you use the App or one of its functions for the first time. If you do not agree with this Privacy Statement, you should not use our Services. Pocket Prep may update this Privacy Statement from time to time. If we update this Privacy Statement, we will use reasonable electronic efforts to advise you of the change, which may include posting a notice of the change on our Services, or we may send you an electronic notification of the change. If we electronically notify you by email, we will provide these electronic messages to your last known or provided electronic address. You are responsible for reviewing communications we send to those addresses and to keep those addresses current. Use of our Services after our notice of a change in the Privacy Statement constitutes acceptance of the terms and changes in the updated Privacy Statement, which shall, unless expressly prohibited by applicable law, be effective from the inception of your use of the Services.

Information Collected

You can visit our Services without telling us who you are or revealing Personal Information (defined as any information that can be used to identify an individual, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address) about yourself, however, doing so may render certain areas of our Services unavailable to you. If you choose to provide Personal Information, the types of information that we may then collect about you include, but are not limited to:

  • Contact information (such as name, address, city, state, ZIP code, email address and telephone number)
  • Product preferences
  • Location information (GPS, network-based, and WiFi)
  • Unique device identifier
  • User’s name
  • Contacts/address book
  • Transactional information
  • Photos or videos
  • Web browsing history
  • Apps downloaded or used
  • If you choose to participate in activities such as Services registrations, contests, sweepstakes, questionnaires, surveys, consumer service contacts, Apps purchases, mobile applications, or social media platforms, we will collect the Personal Information that you provide and we may enhance or merge the information with information from other sources, including third parties for the purposes described below. We may also receive information about you from other sources, such as other users with whom you interact through our Services, third-party social media platforms, advertising partners, and other parties. Such information is used to help provide recommendations, make notifications, and generally understand and improve the Services. For example, we may receive information about your interactions with the Apps so that we may determine the effectiveness of our recommendations. We may also receive information about you from marketing and research firms to help us improve our endorsements. Our Services rely on special features provided by your device for full functionality. If you do not authorize them, you may not be able to use all the functions in the Services as they are intended to work. Location is an important factor in the functionality of our Services so that it returns results that are relevant to your location (such as near you or in a particular city that you select). We may use your location with your permission to localize its functions, improve our understanding of our users and for our own and third party marketing purposes. The Services receive and use location information from you, with your permission, directly (if you enter a city and state or a ZIP Code) or from your device (if you have permitted this when you installed, configured, or used the Apps). You may follow the instructions related to your device to prevent it from providing the location information to our Websites.

    Information Use

    We collect, maintain and use your Personal Information for the follow purposes:

  • Helping to establish and verify the identity of users
  • Opening, maintaining, administering and servicing users’ profiles or accounts
  • Providing services and support to users
  • Improving the Services, including tailoring them to users’ preferences
  • Sending promotional notices, offers or other targeted marketing, and other information about Pocket Prep and its products
  • Responding to your questions, inquires, comments and instructions
  • Maintaining the security and integrity of our systems
  • Complying with legal requirements
  • If we remove direct identifiers about you, such information is no longer considered Personal Information about you and is not subject to this Privacy Statement.

In serving Pocket Prep advertisements, these companies may use cookies and other tracking devices to collect information about your visits to other websites, like browser type, IP address, which page was visited, and time of day. We use this information to evaluate our online advertising campaigns or to tailor promotions and other marketing messages to you. Third parties whose websites or other resources you use might also use cookies or other tracking methods. The privacy practices of those third parties are covered by their own privacy statements.
