SUMMARY AND CONTACT INFORMATION
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
Brand Vegas is the sole owner of the information collected on this App. We collect information from our users in a number of different ways, as detailed below. The information we collect depends on what you do when you visit our App. Please note that we do not collect personally-identifying information about you, including your name, email address, telephone number, credit card information, or postal address, when you visit our App, unless you choose to provide such information to us by registering with us and setting up an account. If at any time you do provide us with such information, we will collect it.
You may provide information through optional and voluntary submissions. These voluntary submissions including information necessary to create an account with the App, allow the App to connect to your calendar and/or contacts, purchase goods or services through the App, or provide information on our App to contact us to get further information about Brand Vegas, our services, and/or other information.
Additionally, you may have the option to post directly from the App and/or create an account by connecting the account through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and any other third-party social networking Apps we may affiliate with the App (the “Connected Networks”). You understand that the connection of the App to any accounts you hold on the Connected Networks may lead to certain information from those accounts being shared with us by the Connected Networks, including but not limited to, profile pictures, location data, personally identifiable information, and any other information you have posted to the Connected Networks. If you do not wish to share such information, you may not be able to create an account by using the Connected Networks or may need to edit privacy settings or other settings on your individual accounts on the Connected Networks.
For each visitor to our App, we automatically gather certain information and store it in log files. This information includes location information, technical information and related data about Your usage of the App including, but not limited to, the frequency of use or pages visited within the App, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We collect and store this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined, form. We also collect both user-specific and aggregate information on what pages visitors access or visit. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the App, to track users’ movements around the App, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We also use this information to improve the content of our App, and to customize the content and layout of our pages. All of this is done with the intention of making our App more useful to visitors. We do not correlate this information with data about individual users.
From time to time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys or contests on the App, or to participate in other voluntary activities through the App. We may request personally-identifying information from you, along with other information, in order for you to participate. Participation in these activities is completely voluntary; therefore, you can elect not to disclosure your personal information by not participating in the activity.
We use the information we collect through these activities to monitor the interests and attitudes of visitors to our App, to ensure that our App provides information that is relevant and helpful, to contact activity participants, and to carry out the activity.

We may also use this information to send you information on products, services, special offers and promotions in which you might have an interest. The means by which we will use to contact you with this information will depend on the type of information you have provided. For example, if you provide us with your email address, you may receive periodic promotional emails from us. If you provide us with your postal address, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new products and services. If you do not wish to receive special offers and other promotional information from us, you may opt out of receiving such communications, as discussed below.
