In order for GROWLr to work with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, or other mobile device, we must collect your Device Identification Code or “DIC”. The DIC is a special type of identifier used in software applications in order to provide a unique reference number for applications like those used by your mobile device. Your DIC is not shared with other users.

You understand that when you use GROWLr, certain information you post or provide on GROWLr may be shared with other users, including without limitation your profile, comments, photographs and locations. In addition, you understand that use of GROWLr may include the disclosure and display of your location/distance data to other users. The information that you enter into your profile may be used for searches. Please note that the information that is provided to GROWLr about your distance will be used within your profile and can be viewed and searched by other GROWLr users. Sophisticated users of GROWLr may be able to determine your location.

We do not share any of your personal information with any third parties other than our advertising display partners such as Admob, Inc. With these third parties we may share the following pieces of information: 1) your DIC, 2) your Advertising Identifier 3) your location, 4) your gender, 5) your age. Further, information gathered when an ad request is made is not shared by those third party partners with specific advertisers. Some of our ad partners may target ads based on user behavior.

We will not otherwise disclose any personal information without your consent, except: in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process; to establish or exercise our rights to defend against legal claims; if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities.

We, along with our third party service partners and business partners, use cookies, Web beacons, persistent device identifiers, advertising identifiers and other technologies. These technologies are used for tracking, advertising, analytics and personalization and optimization of the Service.

Ads appearing on the Service may be delivered to users by our advertising partners, who may set cookies, persistent device identifiers and advertising identifiers. These cookies, persistent device identifiers and advertising identifiers allow the ad server to recognize your computer or mobile device each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer or mobile device. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. For information about how to opt out of receiving behavioral advertisements from our advertising partners, please visit http://networkadvertising.org/choices/#completed.

Do Not Track

At this time, we do not respond to "do not track" signals sent from Web browsers.

Apple iOS and Google Android devices provide the ability for users to enable a "do not track" setting that disables your advertising identifier. If the “do not track” setting is disabled, we may record when a user installs the App, and whether or not this action was the result of a tap on an ad outside of the App. We may also run targeted advertising on third party applications via our advertising display partners. For users who have enabled the "do not track" setting in iOS or Android, this data will not be collected.

Please note that the “do not track” setting may not be available on all operating systems or versions of the App.

We may update these instructions periodically as new information becomes available from Apple, Google, and other Operating System manufacturers.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time without prior notice. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any information. This Privacy Policy was made effective on the date indicated above.
