1. Why do you collect my data?
It’s simple. We provide products and services to help you secure your data, devices, and personal privacy. We use data to improve those products and services; provide support; send notifications, offers, and promotions; and to make money from our free offerings so that we can continue to offer them for free.
We use data that can identify you, called personal data, to:
Enable you to purchase and download products, obtain access to services and engage in offered activities;
Provide you information about virus alerts, new and upgraded products and services, and other information you have requested;
Provide you with service messages to your device;
Alert you if we determine that your files, applications or emails are potentially malicious;
Send you newsletters, informative emails or other information; and
Provide you special opportunities, including offers relating to third-party products and services
We use data that does not identify you, called non-personal data, for lots of purposes, including to improve our products and services and to help keep our free offerings free. In particular, we may use non-personal data to build anonymous data profiles and provide segmented marketing, generate aggregate statistical information, and to improve and administer our current products and create new products.
2.How do you collect my data?
We collect information in three ways: when you provide us information, automatically, when you use our website or products, and when provided to us by third parties. Much of our automatic collection is done through the use of things like cookies and tracking beacons. Additionally, if you have the option enabled, we may scan web traffic (including encrypted traffic) for known virus threats.
3.What do you collect that can identify me?
Like many companies, some of the information we collect, known as personal data, can identify you. An example of personal data might be your name or email address.
Some personal data we collect only when you provide it to us. This information may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, and if you pay by credit card, your payment information. This may happen when you:
Create a user account, place an order, or register a product;
Request product support or other services;
Request information about products; or
Participate in surveys.
Some personal data we collect automatically when you use our website or products. This information may include some or all of the following types of information:
Your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address;
User and account names and related data;
SIM (Subscriber Identification Module) card number;
Device ID numbers, including Machine ID, IMEI and/or MEID;
AVG product license and identification numbers; and
Geographic location based on GPS/Wi-Fi/communications network local information.
Unless we need the data to retain its personally identifiable characteristics, we anonymize the data we collect and store it in a manner that does not identify you. For instance, when we collect your IP address, we may anonymize your IP address by obfuscating the last group of digits (e.g., changing 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.XXX).
4. WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
User Provided Information. We obtain certain information when you provide it to us: for example, if you setup your account profile, participate in a discussion board, purchase a product, sign in using your Facebook Connect or Google login, or report a problem on one of the Websites, you may provide your name, email address, your date of birth, photograph, and a list of interests such as your favorite music and television shows. Some of that information can be used by iFreeringtones to identify or contact you directly and is sometimes referred to as personally identifiable information. When you purchase virtual currency or products through our Services, we use a third-party payment processor that collects your payment information and completes the transaction.
