Privacy Policy
Last Updated February 2017

We at Anoko, Inc. (“ANOKO,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) have created this privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) because we know that you care about how information you provide to us is used and shared.  This Privacy Policy relates to the information collection and use practices of ANOKO in connection with our Platform and our Services.  By visiting our Platform or using our Services, Visitors, Trial Members and Registered Members are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use.

The Information We Collect

In the course of operating the Platform and/or providing our Services, we may collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.

1.Personal Information.

When you sign up to become a Trial Member or a Registered Member of ANOKO, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, city, and phone number.  If you contact us, you will need to provide your name and e-mail address.  Registered Members will also provide identifiable information in the course of using the Platform or the Services, such as credit card information.  All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”  We do not collect any personal information from Visitors, Trial Members or Registered Members unless they provide such information voluntarily.

2.Geolocational Information.

Certain features and functionalities of the Platform are based on your location.  In order to provide these features and functionalities while you are using a mobile device, we may, with your consent, automatically collect geolocational information from your mobile device or wireless carrier and/or certain third-party service providers.  Such information is collectively called the “Geolocational Information.”  Collection of such Geolocational Information occurs only when the Platform is running on your mobile device.  You may decline to allow us to collect such Geolocational Information, in which case ANOKO will not be able to provide certain features or functionalities to you.

3.Other Information.

In addition to the information noted above, we may collect additional information (collectively, the “Other Information”).  Such Other Information may include:

  1. From You.  Additional information about yourself that you voluntarily provide to us, such as your personal interests and preferences, and other information that does not identify you personally.

  1. From Cookies.  Information that we collect using “cookie” technology.  Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit.  We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect Other Information and to enhance your experience using the Platform or the Services.  If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device.  Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies.  However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the Site or the Services may not function properly.
  2. Third-Party AnalyticsWe use third-party analytics services (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate use of the Platform and the Services, compile reports on activity, collect demographic data, analyze performance metrics, and collect and evaluate other information relating to the Platform and the Services and mobile and Internet usage.  These third parties use cookies and other technologies to help analyze and provide us the data.  By accessing and using the Platform or the Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by these analytics providers in the manner and for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected by or Through Third-Party Advertising Companies

We may share Other Information about your activity on the Platform or the Services with third parties for the purpose of tailoring, analyzing, managing, reporting, and optimizing advertising you see on the Platform or the Services and elsewhere.  These third parties may use cookies, pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs), and/or other technologies to collect such Other Information for such purposes.  Pixel tags enable us, and these third-party advertisers, to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the site on which the pixel tag is located in order to learn which advertisement brings a user to a given site.

Accessing and Modifying Personal Information and Communication Preferences

If you are a Registered Member, you may access, review, and make changes to your Personal Information, certain Other Information, and, if applicable, Billing Information by following the instructions found on the Platform.  In addition, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any ANOKO marketing email.  Registered Members cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails related to their account.  We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner.  You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our subscription databases.
