SimpleUPC

Our Policy:

Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) of Pushpins, Inc. (“Pushpins”, “SimpleUPC,” “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Site is operated by Pushpins and has been created to provide information about our company and its web service offering universal product codes, nutrition information, product images and other services (the “SimpleUPC Services” and/or “SImpleUPC Services”) to our users (“you”, “your”). This Privacy Policy sets forth SimpleUPC’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from Site visitors and users of the SimpleUPC Services.

Information We Collect: When you interact with us through the Site or SimpleUPC Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site and SimpleUPC Services: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information such as when you register for access to the SimpleUPC Services (for example, name and email address), use certain SimpleUPC Services, contact us with inquiries or respond to one of our surveys. Wherever SimpleUPC collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Pushpins and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data: When you interact with SimpleUPC through the Site or the SimpleUPC Services, we also receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. SimpleUPC may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Pushpins affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the SimpleUPC Service.  Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the SimpleUPC Services, SimpleUPC often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis.  Pushpins may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. SimpleUPC may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes. In operating this Site, we may also use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they may allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information: SimpleUPC uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to the SimpleUPC Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services. Pushpins and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site and the SimpleUPC Services to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users, and to improve the SimpleUPC Services. SimpleUPC and its Related Companies may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below. If SimpleUPC intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information: SimpleUPC is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, fulfilling coupon requests, offering and developing certain features of the Services, maintenance and security, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.  We also disclose automatically collected data (API requests and promotional activities) to third-party ad servers and advertisers. These third parties may match this data with information that they have previously collected about you under their own privacy policies, which you should consult on a regular basis.

We may offer contests that require you to take an action in order to receive a reward. This data is provided to the advertiser and you will always have the option to not participate.
