For more information on how we utilize cookies and other tracking technologies please review the “Cookies and Automated Information Collection” portion of “How We Collect Information About You”.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We may collect information about you in any one or more of the following ways:
Information about Users
When you use the Service, Edge Tech may collect and store certain information that you provide directly or through a SNS. We may also collect information about your interaction with other users of the Service. The bulk of this information is collected and stored through the use of Log Files, which are files on our web servers that record actions taken on our websites.
The Service has the ability to store data. Each connection event from the Fret Zealot device and the accompanying data, such as screen views, app performance metrics, recent activity, in-app purchases, crash reports, and other data, will be stored on our servers and you will be able to access such data using the Service. We may also use such data and provide such data to third parties as discussed in the sections below. By accepting this agreement, you consent to our storage and use of such data.
You may be able to take part in certain activities on our websites or by using the Service that give you the opportunity to communicate or share information not just with Edge Tech, but also with other users of our Service.
We may record and store archives of these communications on our servers to protect the safety and well-being of our users and our rights and property in connection with the service. You acknowledge and consent to the recording and storage of such communications for these purposes.
Cookies and Automated Information Collection
When you access the Service, we collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyze the usage of our sites and services, (ii) identity validation and to provide a more personalized experience, and (iii) manage advertising. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics, use Log Files and tracking technologies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information, including cookies, IP addresses, device type, device identifiers, browser types, browser language, referring and exit pages, and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of activity on our websites, and other similar information. In some cases, we will associate this information with your user ID number for our internal use.
We may also employ other technologies including (i) web beacons, which allow us to know if a certain page was visited or whether an e-mail was opened, (ii) tracking pixels, which allow us to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages, identifying the source of a new installation, or delivering ads to you on other websites, and (iii) local shared objects also known as flash cookies, which help us to prevent fraud, remember your in-Service preferences and speed up load times.
- Although most browsers and devices accept cookies by default, their settings usually allow you to clear or decline cookies. If you disable cookies, however, some of the features of our Services may not function properly.
- To prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, you can install Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
- To opt out of ads on Facebook, Pinterest, or Google that are targeted to your interests, use your Facebook, Pinterest, or Google Ads settings.
- Check your mobile device for settings that control ads based on your interactions with the applications on your device. For example, on your iOS device, enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting, and on your Android device, enable the “Opt out of Ads Personalization” setting.
The Edge Tech website does not respond to Do Not Track signals because we do not track our users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising.

PRIVACY POLICIES OF LINKED SITES AND ADVERTISERS
Our websites may contain advertisements from companies other than Edge Tech that may link to their own websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Edge Tech implements reasonable security measures to protect the security of your information both online and offline, and we are committed to the protection of customer information. Edge Tech actively limits third party access to Personally Identifiable Information collected through use of Edge Tech Service.
For user accounts registered with Edge Tech, profile information is protected by the password each member uses to access their online account. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and that you immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your Edge Tech account, the Service allows you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password. When you sign into your account or enter payment information (such as a credit card number when purchasing virtual currency), we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure transport layer technology (“TLS”).
While we take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our websites and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to log out of your account after use. Edge Tech uses industry standards, such as Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) technology, to help safeguard against such occurrences. In certain instances, the information passed between your browser and the Edge Tech system is encrypted with SSL technology to create a protected connection between you and this website to ensure confidentiality.
Although we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorized access. In the event that a breach into the Edge Tech security systems occurs and there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your Personal Information, Edge Tech will notify you of such a breach under applicable law.
We may make P3P — compact machine-readable — policies and headers available. If we do so, we will try to ensure that they are consistent with this human readable policy. However, in the event of a conflict between a machine-readable policy and this policy, this (human readable) policy will control.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by “opting in” to receive information from a third party that is participating in a promotion on one of our sites. If you do ask us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personal information on one of our sites.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what Personal Data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for that third party’s direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any Personal Data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes
Please submit any requests for access to your personal data in writing to email@example.com.
OUR INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS AND DATA TRANSFERS
We operate internationally and transfer information to the United States and other countries for the purposes described in this policy.
Please note that the countries where we operate may have privacy and data protection laws that differ from, and are potentially less protective than, the laws of your country. You agree to this risk when you create an account with an Edge Tech Service, irrespective of which country you live in. If you wish to withdraw your consent, you can delete your Edge Tech account yourself, or through the help of our support team.
