“Personal Information” is information that you provide to us that personally identifies you, such as your name, phone number, or email address. “Non-Personal Information” is information that cannot by itself be directly associated with a specific person or entity. Non-Personal Information includes but is not limited to your smartphone’s configuration and which web browser you use.
“Potentially Personal Information” is information that is Non-Personal Information in and of itself but that could be used in conjunction with other information to personally identify you. For example, Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (the addresses of computers on the internet) can be Personal Information when combined with internet service provider (“ISP”) records.
“Operational Data” means data regarding a user’s usage of Sidekick, such as access log data (such as data about when people access the service and with what piece of software). Sidekick collects Operational Data to help us ensure that we have sufficient capacity to meet user needs and otherwise to help with the operations of the Sidekick App.
“Usage Statistics” refers to the Non-Personal and Potentially Personal Information the Sidekick App will use to understand your use of the Sidekick App Service. Such information may include but is not limited to the amount of data you are storing with the service, the frequency with which you access the service, bandwidth utilization, user interaction data, and traffic shaping.
For clarity, Usage Statistics and Operational Data from your use of the Sidekick App Service are not stored with your Personal Information. We take steps to aggregate or delete Operational Data and Usage Statistics after we no longer need it, unless we are required by law to keep it longer.
