Saent is not responsible for the actions of third party people or companies, the content of their sites, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. Any link to those sites does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies.
By using the Service, you are expressing your agreement to this Policy and the processing of your data, including your Personal Information, in the manner provided in this Policy. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use the Service.
Information Collection and Use
Saent collects Personal Information as described below. Saent’s primary goals in collecting and using Personal Information is to create your account, provide Services to you, improve our Service, contact you, conduct research and create reports for internal use. We store information on servers primarily located in the United States and may store Personal Information on servers and equipment in other countries. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.
The Personal Information we receive and store when you access the Service may include: (1) your name, (2) your user identification number and/or user name, (3) locale, city, state and country, (4) gender, (5) age or birth date, (6) email address, (7) profile picture or its URL, (8) your phone number, (9) the user identification numbers for your friends that are also connected to Saent’s Service and (10) your profession, (11) your application and site activity. In addition, whenever you use our Services, we collect data about all of your interactions and behavior within our application via server log files and Google Analytics. Note that this does not include your personal browsing history, nor content of any sites, messages or documents.
Collection via Mobile Platforms
When you use any of the Saent applications on a mobile platform, we may collect and record certain information such as your unique device ID, hardware type, the version of your operating system (“OS”), your device name, and your location (based on your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and longitude and latitude provided by your device). This information is useful to us for troubleshooting and helps us understand usage trends.
We may also give users the opportunity to opt-in to location-based services, which rely upon a device’s GPS coordinates. You may opt-out of these location services via the settings on your device. A user’s location may be used to suggest friends with whom they might want to connect, analyze usage trends or target certain promotions.
In addition, we might create a unique user mobile ID to track your use of our Service. This unique user mobile ID is stored in connection with your profile information to track the Saent applications you are using. We may link the unique user mobile ID to the online user ID to connect your profiles and associated data for internal analysis and targeting certain promotions.
Collection via Saent’s Sites
We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.
Saent may at times offer you the ability to post content to a blog, message board, chat room or within Saent’s applications or other forums (“Forums”). You should be aware that any visitor to the Forums may read your postings on the Forums. Furthermore, any information that you may post to a Forum, including your username or other account profile information, will be disclosed and available to all users and viewers of that Forum, and will therefore no longer be private. Saent cannot guarantee the security of such information that is disclosed or communicated online in public areas such as the Forums, and you provide such information at your own risk. Saent does not author, edit, endorse, or monitor any Forum. You acknowledge and agree that Saent has no responsibility for the accuracy or availability of information provided on any Forum. Saent reserves the right at any time, in its sole discretion, to remove any content that a user may post on any Forum and restrict their access to any Forum.
