    3. INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.



      1. The Information: When you download the App, or use the Services through the App or the Site, we may automatically collect or verify information about you and your device (collectively, Usage Data), including: information on the type and model of the device (phone or computer) you are using to access the Services, the operating system of the device, electronic data concerning operating systems, your IP address, your internet service provider, the pages you view, when and how long you use the site, browsers and computing devices/browser, other unique device and message identifiers (such as push token PIN codes or UDID device identifiers, among others), sender and receiver identifiers, read receipts, message transmittal success, failure information, and log files. Usage Data may also include metadata and other information associated with other files stored on your mobile or computer device. Neither the App nor the Site collects information about the real-time location of your device. Also, when you use the Services to send and receive messages, or otherwise capture and store data, we collect, process, and store the data and the content of any attachments (the Input Data).

      2. Collection: Usage Data is collected in a variety of ways, including via web cookies. A web cookie is a small removable data files that a website sends to your web browser. It is then stored by your web browser to record when you have visited the site or completed other activity (such as logins, page visits, and click-throughs). We may also use web beacons to access our cookies. A web beacon is an electronic file on a Web page that allows us to count users who have visited that page and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Further, a web beacon can be used in HTML-formatted email to determine responses to our communications and measure their effectiveness. Additionally, Input Data is collected directly from you, based on what information you put into the Services.

      3. Use: Usage Data is used in a variety of ways, including to administer the Services, to troubleshoot user problems, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, to notify you when updates are available, to enable us to understand errors that users may experience, to associate messages sent by specific users, to route messages transmitted to and from you securely and accurately, to recognize you when you use the Services, to analyze usage, and to optimize and improve the Services. We use cookies to recognize you as being logged in as a registered user of the Service, in addition to the other ways explained in this policy. Input Data is typically used to troubleshoot user problems and to identify opportunities to improve the service for you.  

      4. Your Choices: IF YOU DO NOT WANT PMD TO COLLECT AND STORE USAGE DATA OR INPUT DATA, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP OR DELETE IT FROM YOUR DEVICE AND STOP USING THE SERVICES. You can prevent the Site from sending a cookie to your computer or mobile phone by selecting the option in your web browser or privacy preferences to refuse all cookies or to indicate which cookies should be accepted. The cookie used to track visitors is collected by a third party – typically Google - (and subject to that party’s privacy policy) and used to provide us with Site usage statistics. The information included in these cookies is not personally identifiable and it is not shared across websites. The cookie that is used to identify you as a registered user (and not otherwise shared or even collected by us) can be blocked at your option, but if you do so, you use of the Services will be limited. You can avoid web beacons by turning off HTML display and displaying only the text portion of your email. Please note, pMD does not track users across third party websites, and therefore does not use or respond to "Do Not Track" signals in your web browser.  Therefore, if you do not set your privacy preference to block the cookies from our Site, but request that we Do Not Track, the non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Site will be collected and used, and the cookie that identifies you as a registered user will be retained on your mobile phone or computer web browser (although, it is not stored on our servers). Some third party websites do, however, keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, certain website browsers allow you to set the “Do Not Track” signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.



    4. INFORMATION COLLECTED BY A THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER.



      1. The Information: To assist in providing the Services, we may also use services hosted by third parties (“Third Party Service(s)”), such as Google Analytics™, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).  These Third Party Services collects information about your use of the website, including your IP address, time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page of the Site, referring site details, type of web browser, type of operating system, network location, flash version, JavaScript support, screen resolution and screen color processing ability.

      2. Collection: Third Party Services typically collect information using cookies and/or page tags. The information generated is transmitted to these third parties and stored on their servers.

      3. Use: Third party Services use the information gathered to help us analyze how users use the Services, and how potential users use our Site. Among other things, we use this information to give you notices, to administer the Services, to recognize you when you use the Services, to analyze usage, to increase traffic to our Site, to optimize the Services, and to improve the Services. We also use web cookies to track unique visitors and help us understand who visits our Site and which pages they were visiting. Google Analytics, or another Third Party Service, will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Services, compiling reports on website activity for us, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.  Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

      4. Your Choices: Users should be aware that pMD cannot control the use of cookies (or the resulting information) by other parties.  The use of other party cookies is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Services.  By using this Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google, or other third parties, in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
