Non-Personal Information is essentially anonymous when collected.
HOW AND WHEN WE COLLECT INFORMATION

We collect Personal Information through sign-up forms and as part of your registration for an account, product, or service from this Application. Personal Information that we collect may vary with each sign-up or registration.
Your Communications With Us. We collect Personal Information that we receive from you as you communicate with us, including but not limited to, use of our website, or use/download of our TRE Code Software Application.
Passive and Analytical Information. We reserve the right to monitor your use of this Application.

Geo-Location Data. When you visit the TRE Code Software Application, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location in order to determine the city or area you are located within and display a location map with relevant advertisements. If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your account settings or in your mobile device settings and/or within the mobile Application. We will not share any user’s geo-location or GPS data without first obtaining the user’s express consent.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use your Personal Information, either alone or in combination with other information, for the performance of the services or transaction for which it was given, our private, internal reporting for this Application, and security assessments for this Application.
Additionally, we may use your Personal Information to provide better service for Application users, customize the Application based on your preferences, serve advertisers and advertisements, and otherwise administer and improve this Application for your use.
We reserve the right to make full use of non-personally identifiable compilations of information to third parties of all Non-Personal Information. Additionally, we may collect, use, transfer, disclose, or sell information in a form that does not personally identify you (“Non-Identifying Information”) for any purpose. Non-Identifying Information can include certain Personal Information that has been aggregated or de-identified and/or rendered anonymous.

Certain Non-Identifying Information about you would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone, or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information. We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our products and services, including our Application, to analyze and understand how our products and services, including our Application, are used, and/or to sell such aggregated or analytic data to third parties.
