  1. Information We Collect
  2. We collect the following types of information.

    Information you provide us directly:

    • A unique username and phone number when you register for a Siidekick account.
    • Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g. picture, username, bio, and location). This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on Siidekick.
    • User Content (e.g., photos, comments, stories', and other materials) that you post to the Service.

    How we find your friends and your audience.

    Siidekick will find and add other users around you to your Audience page, as well as display any content that any of your temporary followers decide to publically post inside of the Storyboard page. This feature we use to temporarily add followers to any user’s Audience page will depend on how close, in proximity, a user is to another user. Once the distance is less than or equal to the required distance, then both users will automatically be sent to the other user’s Following list page where they act as a temporary follower. Siidekick only pulls your location once you open the app and while you're on the app, Siidekick may update it every 5-10 minutes. Siidekick does not access your location while it is in background. The radius around each user may not be static and may increase or decrease depending on our algorithms. While users are inside of your Audience page you will be able to permanently follow them by touching on their username. Each user can also unfollow a user in the same method. Understand that any of your temporary followers will be able to view, comment, interact, share, or possibly screenshot content that another user uploads to Siidekick.

    Analytics information

    We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect Information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual user.

    When you visit the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect Information and statistics about how you use Siidekick and provide features to you.

    We may ask, encourage, or give an opportunity to businesses, local stores, promoters, or advertisers in order to promote, serve ads, or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

    Businesses, Sponsors and Advertisers

    A business or individual(s) who is/are marketing a product, business, or service can use Siidekick in the same way any user can in order to acquire customers and/or followers. Understand that Augsus is not affiliated with any business or marketer who uses Siidekick for business or marketing purposes.

    Log file information:

    Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device.

    When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, location, places visited, and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.

    Device identifiers:

    When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identifies your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Siidekick.

    A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third-party about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

    Metadata:

    Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with the Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of Content was collected and how that content is formatted.

    Users may have Metadata added to their Content including geotag (e.g., to mark or add your location on a post), or geolocation (e.g. the process or technique of identifying the geographical location of a user or device), comments or other data. This makes your Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or story, we may store your latitude and longitude with the photo, which may be searchable (e.g., through a location, or a regional/city page) if your photo is made public by you in accordance with your settings.

    Some settings can be changed on the Service settings menu or by going to Settings on your phone or device, then finding the Siidekick settings icon where you could alter your privacy.

  3. How We Use Your Information
