Not every section of this Privacy Policy will apply to these products.  

2. Information Findd Collects

  If you purchase a Findd Service directly from us, we may collect your credit card number, expiration date, security code and other applicable billing information. We use this information to bill you for services. Findd uses third-party payment processors and therefore has only limited information about your payment transactions.  

  1. Device Information

  When you use Findd Services, our servers automatically record certain information about your mobile device. This information may include an equipment identifier (e.g., IMEI, UDID), subscriber identifier (e.g., IMSI), device name, mobile phone number, device type and manufacturer, operating system type and version, wireless carrier/operator, network type, country of origin, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the dates and times of your requests. We use this information to provide our services, and support if needed.  

  1. Employment Application Information

  If you wish to fill out our employment application form, we will ask for information, including your name, email address, phone number, and allow you to upload your resume and cover letter.

  Our website includes social media Features (“Features”), like the Facebook recommend button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. If you use these Features, they will collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Features may be hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site.
