Information We Collect
In general, you can visit the nativeMsg Site without providing us with any information that identifies you as a specific individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, or other information that identifies you as an actual person (“Personal Information”). However, certain features may ask you to provide Personal Information, including if you choose to register with the nativeMsg Site. We may also ask you to provide demographic information, such as ZIP code or information regarding preferences or hobbies (“Demographic Information”) or other information about you. If you register with the nativeMsg Site, we will also ask you to create a user-name and password that will serve as your log-in credentials. If we associate demographic and other non-personal information with Personal Information we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
nativeMsg may also provide you opportunities to submit Personal Information about other individuals. For instance, you may choose to send an e-mail invitation to encourage a contact to try our services. We will not use the Personal Information of these other individuals for any other purpose unless we disclose otherwise at the time you provide the information.
We and our third-party service providers may use certain technologies (such as cookies and Web beacons) that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you interact with the nativeMsg Site (“Usage Data”). Usage Data may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to the nativeMsg Site, any search terms you entered into a search engine that led you to the nativeMsg Site, the areas within the nativeMsg Site that you visit and the time of day, among other information. Usage Data also includes the IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for any computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access the nativeMsg Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your device, and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us with information regarding the physical location of the device you used to access the nativeMsg Site. Usage Data is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we will treat it as Personal Information.
The nativeMsg Site is not intended for use by anyone younger than the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children younger than age 13. If we learn that we have in fact collected Personal Information from a user younger than 13, we will delete it from our records.
We and our third-party service providers, including third-party advertisers and analytics providers, may use the following or similar technologies to collect Usage Data whenever you visit the nativeMsg Site.
Cookies. “Cookies” and local storage are pieces of information (data files) transferred to a browser when the user visits a site. These technologies are able to store a unique identifier for a device to allow an online service provider to recognize the device whenever the device is used to visit the site. You can find more information about cookies and how they work at www.allaboutcookies.org.
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags,” “1×1 GIFs,” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, to count users of the nativeMsg Site, to monitor how users interact with the nativeMsg Site, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the nativeMsg Site. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server, is active only while you are connected to the nativeMsg Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.
How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals
Please note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services that you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, nativeMsg does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

The nativeMsg Site may contain integration with social networks and other platforms. For example, you may have the opportunity to integrate your social media account with our chat functionality, to “like” or “share” the nativeMsg Site’s content to other online services, or display tweets or other content from third party platforms on the nativeMsg Site, in accordance with the terms of that third party platform. The nativeMsg Site also may contain buttons that direct users to our social networking pages (such as Facebook or Twitter). Note that if you choose to “like” or “share” content, to integrate your accounts, or to otherwise post information via the nativeMsg Site to a third-party website or other online service, that information may be publicly displayed and the third-party website may have access to information about you and your use of the nativeMsg Site.
In addition, the nativeMsg Site may have links to third party websites.

We are not responsible for the privacy or business practices of any third party.
How We Use Information About You
We may also use non-personal information, including information that has been de-identified (typically by using a mathematical process known as a “hash”), to make inferences about you and content you may be interested in, to serve you with relevant advertising, and to allow others to do so.
How and When We Disclose Information to Third Parties
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf
We may share information about you, including Personal Information, with third-party vendors to enable them to perform services on our or your behalf. For example, these third party vendors may host the nativeMsg Site, sending email or other communications, and provide us with marketing assistance and data analysis.

We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) that may require registration. If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules, such as on a winners list.

We may share Usage Data or de-identified data about visitors with third-party advertising companies, analytics providers and other vendors for analytics and advertising purposes.
We use a variety of service providers to perform advertising services. Some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an “opt-out” by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads while online.

You agree to receive such communications by post, phone or by electronic means (including e-mail). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to opt-out from marketing communications.

You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information you submit to us, such as your contact information, either through any online account feature offered or by contacting us. You may access the Personal Information we hold about you by contacting our customer service department by email at email@example.com.

It is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases, and residual data may remain on backup media or for other reasons.
