Data, Files and Images
We collect and store the data and/or files you enter, upload, download, capture, scan or access with the GradeNinja Services.
We automatically record necessary and/or relevant information from your Device, its software, and your activity when you use the Services. This may include the Device's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, your mobile carrier, locale preferences, metadata related to your files and images, the web page visited before you came to our website, browser type, information you search for on our website, identification numbers associated with your Devices, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, and other interactions with the Services.
When an account is created, GradeNinja collects personal information, such as your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business postal addresses. In the course of using the Services, we may collect personal information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information is or may be used: (i) to provide and improve the Services, (ii) to administer your use of the Services, (iii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iv) to personalize and improve your experience, and (v) to provide or offer software updates and product announcements. If, at any points, you wish to no longer receive communications from us, please follow the "unsubscribe" instructions provided in any of those communications, or update your account settings as they relate to such communications.
Some Devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Our mobile apps do not collect such information as of the date this policy went into effect, but may do so in the future with your consent to improve our Services. Please note that images you upload or share with GradeNinja may contain recorded location information and we may use this information to optimize your experience. Also, IP address information from a particular device can sometimes be used to approximate a Device's location.
GradeNinja or our associated third party services may also collect additional information by means of logging and cookies (which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information). This information is used to administer, monitor, enhance, and analyze use of the Services as well as to verify users have the authorization needed for the Services to process their requests.
