Information that is stored, accessed, and/or collected
We collect your information when you interact with us or use our Services. We also collect certain information of visitors to our Services, so as to help us improve our Services and offer a better user experience.
There are 3 basic categories of information we collect:
- Information that you give us
- Information that we collect from you
- Information we get from third parties
Information that you give us
When you use our Services, we collect the information that we need to be able to identify you (such as when you create an account), and the information you choose to share with us. For example, when you create a Bignest account, we collect a few important details about you, such as your name, and your email address. While not obligatory for the use of our Services, you may also choose to share your current city and country of residency, your date of birth, and your gender.
Information that we collect from you
When you use our Services, we also collect the following information:
- Usage information (how you use our Services, and how long you use them)
- IP address (for security reasons to be able to inform you if we detect any unauthorized access, or any attempt to access your account)
- User agent (we obtain information such as what version and which browser you are using, what operating system you are using, what is your screen resolution, and what is your browser window size. The purpose of this is to understand how our users access Bignest, and be able to decide where our future focus should be directed.)
Information we get from third parties
We may also collect certain information that we obtain from third parties. These third parties mostly represent external connections to Bignest, for which we will always ask for your permission before establishing a connection (for example connecting Bignest with your Gmail account). The latter type of connections presents a flow of your personalized information, and you will therefore be asked for your authorization before such a connection is made. In other instances, however, where a third party may share information with us that is more generalized (such as your user agent), we will not explicitly ask for your permission.
We get information from the following third parties:
Alphabet Inc. (for purposes of search, email, contacts, calendar, and analytics)
- Mail.Google.com (We cannot see or read your emails)
- Drive.Google.com (We cannot see or read your Drive content)
- Calendar.Google.com (We cannot see or read your calendar events)
- Alpha vantage (www.alphavantage.co)
We have no control over the policies and practices of third parties listed above, as to their privacy policies or anything else, so if you choose to use any Service that requires an external connection please review all such businesses’ or websites’ terms and conditions and privacy policies.
We do not use the information we get from third parties to serve you any Ads.
