Direct Information

Messages and files you post, upload, and submit to SyntaxLAMP are also directly collected.
 
Automatic Information
Some information is sent to and collected by SyntaxLAMP automatically.  This information is collected passively through header information sent by your web browser or collected from your device automatically.  We collect the following types and examples of automatic information:
  • Log Information Your web browser, or mobile device, may transmit header information to SyntaxLAMP including, among other things, your web browser name and version, your operating system name and version, your language, pages you have visited or the page last visited before navigating to our services, your public IP address, and geolocation information.
  • Mobile Information Your phone's network type (wi-fi or phone data), your phone contacts (optional feature), your device's operating system, version, and screen size.
  • Usage Information Aggregate data, such as the number of messages sent, the number of SyntaxLAMP contacts or recipients, and the date and time of usage is collected.
  • Cookie and Storage We may store authentication and temporary information in your web browser or device's localStorage, sessionStorage, or cookie technologies.  Cookie information may be transmitted to SyntaxLAMP.  Many modern web browsers allow the option to reject or disable cookies, localStorage, and sessionStorage, but please note that doing so may inhibit SyntaxLAMP's operation and functionality of our services.

User support or general inquiries collect whatever information you volunteer.  You may be able to submit files, messages, or your email address through our websites and applications as well as through email.

Information Sharing
We share your information for the following purposes:
  • Sending/receiving a message Other site users will see your username, your profile picture (thumbnail picture), your message, attached files or videos, the status of the message (opened, sent, etc), and the date and time of the message's submission or opening
  • Searching for users When a user searches for another user's username to add as a contact or to chat with, your username and profile picture may be shared
  • Facebook When using Facebook information to search for friends and contacts, your username and profile picture may be provided to them

  • Other information We may share other information about you with your consent and at your direction
  • Aggregate data We may share aggregated data without identifying information, which cannot reasonably identify you.  An example of this would be traffic or usage data sent to shareholders or investor prospects.
