PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT We will always collect your Personal Information by fair and lawful means. SnapQ may collect information that can specifically identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and other similar information. We may collect Personal information directly from you when you voluntarily provide it to us or we may obtain Personal Information from one of our clients. Our clients hire us to obtain feedback from you and their other customers. We may also obtain Personal Information from list providers who have assured us that their lists comprise only individuals who have consented to be listed. Finally, we may collect and use Personal Information obtained from publicly available sources, such as telephone directories.
The purpose of our collection and use of Personal Information is to respond to inquiries and to help our clients better understand their customers' needs, wants, expectations and satisfaction levels. By collecting your feedback and that of many other customers, we deliver insights and recommendations to our clients that help them serve you better. Techniques we use include online surveys and collection of location-based data you have volunteered.
In some surveys we conduct, we may ask standard demographic questions, some of which may be considered sensitive in nature, such as your age, household composition, income range and racial or ethnic origin. We ask these questions to help ensure that the demographic profiles of individuals who kindly participate in our surveys accurately reflect the target population that we are trying to approximate. This information also helps our clients better meet your needs. We understand, though, if you would prefer not to answer certain questions.
We will never ask you for sensitive Personal Information that could give rise to economic crimes if it were lost, misused or disclosed to an unauthorized party, such as bank account information, passport numbers or driver's license numbers. The only exception to this is with respect to Social Security Numbers and Credit Card numbers. If we conduct a sweepstakes in which you participate and win, and for which the prize value exceeds a certain amount, then we may be required by law to collect your Social Security Number for tax reporting purposes. Credit Card numbers are required to purchase some services from our online website. These Credit Card numbers are securely stored and only used to pay for services provided.
We also automatically collect a variety of publicly available machine information for system administration, service improvement and data integrity purposes, as further described in the Information Collected by Automated Technologies section below.

In all such cases, the information provided will not be disclosed to third parties and will be used solely for the purpose of providing you with the Service.

The requested information may include: (i) your name, (ii) mailing address, (iii) telephone number, (iv) email address, and, for those purchasing products or services online, credit card and billing information; and (v) information about the identity of your friends. For some activities, SnapQ may also ask you to provide other non-personal information such as: (i) your age or date of birth; (ii) your gender; (iii) your platform preferences; (iv) information about the hardware you may own and/or products you may have recently purchased; (v) your interests, websites, friend information and fan pages; and, (vi) other service-related information (collectively referred to as "demographic information").
