This information is used for the operation of the websites, the mobile applications and the services provided by Futurae, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Futurae websites, mobile applications and services.

Futurae is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Futurae website.

Futurae collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and mobile applications and deliver the services you have requested.

Futurae may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Futurae and our partners. Futurae may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of our websites, mobile applications and other current or future products.

Futurae does not sell, rent or lease or provide in any other way its customer lists to third parties.

Futurae may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Futurae, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Futurae may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within Futurae and which functionality in our mobile applications or services our users access, in order to determine what Futurae products and application features are the most popular.

Use of Cookies

The Futurae website may use “cookies” to help you 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 register with a Futurae site or subscribe for a Futurae service, a cookie helps Futurae to recall your 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 Futurae website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Futurae 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 Futurae services or websites you visit.

Futurae may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs. Futurae may also use web beacons and tracking URLs in emails to determine whether a recipient opened the email or accessed a certain link.

Mobile Applications

When you use the mobile applications published by Futurae through an app store, Futurae may collect, store and process a unique installation identifier, IP addresses and device information (such as mobile operating system or mobile device model) and QR-code information. Futurae uses this data to provide our services to users and to track the use of our mobile applications. Futurae applications will record audio form the device microphone. Futurae will never receive and store the audio recordings from its applications without the user’s explicit consent. Even then, the data will be stored securely and used exclusively for debugging purposes of our applications.

Security of your Personal Information

Futurae secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Cross-Border Transfer of Your Personal Information

Please be aware that Futurae may host and process your data and information (including Personal Information), in the United States and other countries through third parties that we use to operate and manage the website and services of Futurae.

Any such transfer or processing of your Personal Information will be in accordance with all applicable laws.
