How Information is Collected
Nxtfour.com collects information in three basic ways: 1) Nxtfour.com collects information when you register an account to become a User. This information includes your name, e-mail address, and password. This is information that you voluntarily provide to become a User and when you use certain elements of the Service; 2) Nxtfour.com collects information when you log in to Nxtfour.com by logging in to an account that you already have with certain third-party sites (“SNS”) via the Service. For example, the Service allows you to create an account and log in to the Service using your Facebook account credentials through Facebook Connect. If you are not currently registered as a User on the Service and you click on “Sign in Using Facebook,” you will first be asked to enter your Facebook credentials, and then you will be given the option to register and join Nxtfour.com; 3) Nxtfour.com collects information when you view and interact with Nxtfour.com content, pages, features, and functionality, including the Website, Mobile, and third party applications. Nxtfour.com also collects your IP address, browser type, operating system, mobile carrier, and your ISP, and receives the URLs of sites from which you arrive or to which you leave, or sites that have embedded Nxtfour.com platform technology.
How Information is Used
Nxtfour.com uses the information you provide to: administer your account and customize the Service to you and other Users; improve the Service and the User experience; enable you to share your information and communicate with other Users; send to you service or promotional communications through email and notices in connection with Nxtfour.com; connect you to opportunities and others by enabling persons and parties to find you on Nxtfour.com.
Nxtfour.com collects additional information that you provide as part of the registration, operation, and personalization of your profile on Nxtfour.com that cannot reasonably be used to identify or contact you (collectively, “Non-Identifying Information”). Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Identifying Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be personally identified or contacted. Those pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information. Nxtfour.com may combine your Identifying Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Users in an effort to provide Users with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service, and to analyze and understand how the Service is used. Nxtfour.com may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically based on your preferences or potential interests.
The Mobile software allows Users to access and use the Service from their mobile devices. From the Mobile software, you also have the option to identify the location of User Content that you wish to upload to the Service. In addition, in the event that the Mobile software crashes on your mobile device, Nxtfour.com will receive information about your mobile device model, software version, and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of the Mobile software.
When you visit the Service, whether as a registered User or a non-registered User, servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (collectively, “Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as the browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to the Service, pages of the Service that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on the Service, access times and dates, and other statistics.
Nxtfour.com will communicate with you through email, notices posted on the Service, or through other means available through the Service, including mobile text messages. Nxtfour.com may send you a series of emails that help inform new Users about the features of the Service, and Nxtfour.com will also send you service messages relating to the functioning of the Service. Nxtfour.com may also send you messages with promotional information directly or on behalf of our partners, unless you have opted out of receiving promotional information.
If Nxtfour.com sends communications to you via the carrier service with which you have a mobile communications subscription or otherwise have access, there may be charges associated with receiving such communications. You agree to pay any service fees associated with your receipt of messages on your mobile device (including text messaging charges).
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Nxtfour.com profiles may be crawled by, and displayed through, search engines when someone searches for your name. Nxtfour.com does not warrant how often third-party search engines will update their caches, which may contain old public profile information.
Content distributed through Nxtfour.com’s sharing features and third party integrations may result in displaying some of your information outside of Nxtfour.com. In addition, Nxtfour.com may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of the Service to third parties for purposes that Nxtfour.com deems, in its sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective partners and advertisers on Nxtfour.com.
