Information Collected on Our Websites
"Personally identifying information" is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address, phone number or email address. We do not require you to provide such information to participate in our Websites.

Augme, or Hipcricket, may collect limited non-personally identifying information that your browser makes available whenever you visit a website. This log information includes your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your query and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information to operate, develop and improve our services.
How we Use your Personal Information

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:
- As required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;
- When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others and when there is an fraud investigation or government request which requires Augme to respond;
- If Augme is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email or a prominent notice through our Websites of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information; and

We may store and process personal information collected on our site in the United States or any other country in which Augme or its agents maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country.
As is true of most Websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Augme’s Websites use "cookies" to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize pages, a cookie helps to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Augme services or Websites you visit.
Third Party Cookies
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you log-in into adlife.augme.com, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
