Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our Service.
The Information We Collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to complete registration and become a Member and affirmatively consent to our collection of such personally identifiable information. We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Service. We call this information “Anonymous Data”. Anonymous Data is non-personally identifiable information about your use or the aggregate use of all users that allows us to provide analytics and information on application or Instagram performance, trends, and other metrics that may be useful to users or us. Anonymous Data includes, but is not limited to, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g. Comcast, Verizon FIOS, etc.), the country a mobile device is used in, the time zone of use, the type of mobile device, non-personally identifiable information about use or performance of an Instagram account, and similar information. We also use your Instagram account username and other self-reported information like niche and account type to analyze how you use the application so we can make the experience better for you. We will not sell your Instagram account data or statistical information unless you affirmatively opt-in for it. We may anonymize your data and then use it to calculate aggregate statistics. For example, we may use your best time to post, your follower count, account niche, and account type to contribute to an aggregated best time to post. With such analytics, however, your username and personally identifiable information will not be accessible.
