IFM receives information you choose to provide to us directly. We also collect information passively or automatically when you use the Services.
i. In order to register or in connection with other uses of the Services, such as but not limited to identifying an event, or to contact us with an inquiry or to report a problem, you may be asked to provide, or voluntarily provide, certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number or credit card number (“Personal Information”). You are not required to provide your Personal Information, but if you do not, you may not be able to access or use parts of the Services.
i. IFM, its third party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies and other partners (“Partners”), may collect or receive information about you or your computer or other device used to access the Services. This information includes, without limitation, your IP address, browser type, operating system, Internet service provider, mobile network, type of mobile device, device identifiers and settings, browser settings, pages you have visited on the Services, location information, and your interaction with advertising and other data when you use the Service.
i. If you access or use the Services on a mobile device or through a mobile application, you may be asked to allow us to use Services on your device, such as Wi-Fi, GPS or Bluetooth, to determine your location. You may choose not to provide location information by adjusting the settings on your device or the settings in the applicable mobile application.
ii. In general, the Services deal with location, so in order to work and maximize your uses of the Services, the Services need to know your location. Whenever you open, use and/or interact with our Services, including through our mobile applications on your mobile device or on our websites, we use the location information from your mobile device or browser (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services to your current location. This may include showing you a list of nearby events, locations or friends. For example, the Services may use your mobile device’s “background location” to provide the Services, including to provide you with notifications of events or friends near you. If you have “background location” turned on, the IFM mobile application, from time to time, may tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.
iii. Each of your events or check-ins, using the Services, will be saved on your account with IFM which will allow you, and your friends, to look back at all of the events and locations you visited or attended since you created your IFM account. You can delete this information from your account. If for some reason you ever decide to delete your Services account, we will try our best but cannot ensure that your entire event, location and check-in history will be removed from our databases.

By posting or publishing your information on the Services, you assume the risk that the information you provide will be viewed and used by third parties including, but not limited, to any other user of the Services.

“Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer’s browser or your device by a website or service to store your preferences. These may be used for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with a given website or service or with other websites or services. Websites and mobile applications like IFM may also use Flash cookies, or locally shared objects (“LSOs”), that operate similarly to browser cookies. IFM and/or its Partners may also use “web beacons,” clear GIFs or similar technologies, pieces of information placed on a service or e-mail to track and collect information about user behavior, such as by counting the number of visitors to a web page, delivering a cookie to a user’s browser or tracking open rates, clicks and forwards.
Note that you may be able to set your browser to disable cookies or LSOs, or to refuse certain types of cookies or warn you before accepting cookies. While you are able to do so, this may result in certain parts of the Services not working for you. Some Partners may use technologies other than cookies to recognize your computer or device or to collect information about your use of the Services or other websites or services, and you may not be able to block use of such technologies. Some browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to websites and online services. IFM does not currently take any action or respond to such signals.
IFM or its Partners may use mobile Software Development Kits (“SDKs”) to collect information, such as your IDFA or Android Advertising ID, and other information about how your device interacts with the Service. SDKs allow application developers to enable advertising, collection of data and related services and analytics in mobile applications. IFM may use this technology to deliver, or to help Partners deliver, content such as advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your device. Depending on your device, you may be able to reset your device’s advertising identifier by accessing the privacy settings.
These websites are provided by third parties, not IFM and thus IFM does not control or operate these websites or the choices that they, or any of our Partners may provide through the tools offered on these websites.
IFM Services are not directed at children and IFM does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that Personal Information has been collected from a child under age 13, we will take steps to delete that information as soon as possible.
This Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information by IFM through your interaction with IFM and the Services.

IFM is not responsible for, and does not control, the privacy practices or content of these third parties or third party websites and provides nor warranties, representations or liabilities in connection with the content on, access to or use of those third party websites. These other websites and third parties may have their own privacy policies and terms governing the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information. When you link away from our Services, you do so at your own risk, and should read the privacy policies of such other websites and third parties.
By providing your e-mail address, telephone number or other Personal Information to IFM, you expressly consent to receive e-mails, texts or any other communication from us. We may use e-mail or text to communicate with you including to send information that you have requested or to send information about other products or services developed or provided by us.
