Privacy Statement for GIF Camcorder

Last updated: June 2014

Key points:

We want you to understand the privacy policy truly, so we provide the following two key points upfront before all the fine print:

  1. GIF Camcorder NEVER collects and transmits personal information without asking the permission explicitly from the user. Personal information includes all information or data that could reasonably be used to identify a person. Examples of personal information include: contacts, photos, phone number, audio & video recordings, location, SMS or other text communication, images of the computer’s desktop or screen shots, unique identifiers based on the computer's hardware, and in some cases, combined browsing history.
  2. GIF Camcorder may collect the information of software exceptions (i.e. internal program crashes in plain English) and app usage occasionally for the sole purpose of improving the app.

This policy is modeled on the privacy policies of Microsoft for their applications.

Because we at Biyee SciTech, Inc. respect your privacy, we want you to understand how we collect and use information about you. We are committed to helping protect the privacy of your information and helping ensure you have full control over how your information is used and shared.

Collection and use of your personal information

We use the information we collect to enable the features you are using and provide the services or carry out the requests you authorize. We might also use the information to request feedback, provide critical updates and notifications regarding the software, improve the product or service, for example, bug and survey form inquiries, or provide you with advance notice of events or to tell you about new product releases.

Some personal information you enter might be included in metadata files. This metadata is solely used by GIF Camcorder to function with stated features.

Personal information you provide is never transferred to third parties without your consent. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as providing customer support. We only provide those companies with the personal information they need to deliver the service. They’re required to maintain the confidentiality of that information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Personal information is never sent to BST.

BST might access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of BST or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of BST employees, customers, or the public.

Collection and use of information about your computer

GIF Camcorder includes features that access the Internet to provide you with additional information. These features are available any time you have an active connection to the Internet.

Any time GIF Camcorder contacts a BST server, information about your computer ("standard computer information") is sent. BST uses standard computer information to provide you Internet-enabled services, to help improve our products and services, and for statistical analysis. Standard computer information typically includes information such as your IP address, operating system version, browser version, and regional and language settings. If a particular feature or service sends information to BST, standard computer information is also sent.

After GIF Camcorder has been installed, future Internet requests from that computer might contain information that includes the name of your software product and the version number. This information doesn’t contain personally identifiable information.

From time to time, BST might change some of the Internet addresses (URLs) of the Internet services it provides. To ensure uninterrupted service, BST might download a file to your system containing the new Internet addresses that OneNote needs to access to allow you to use Internet services.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file placed on your hard disk by an Internet server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by an Internet server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies can’t be used to run applications or deliver viruses to your computer.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time.

Whenever GIF Camcorder contacts a BST server, it can potentially save or access cookies. We also use cookies to assist in collecting information about which pages our customers visit within BST web sites. This site visitation data is identified only by a unique ID number, and it’s never linked with personal information unless you consent as described elsewhere in the Privacy Statement.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies or change your language or locale by changing the settings in the Privacy tab of the Internet Options in the Control Panel.

BST products accept the privacy settings you select under Internet Options in Control Panel or in Internet Explorer and doesn’t download cookies if you have chosen not to allow cookies to be downloaded. Those features, described later in this statement, that use cookies might not work correctly with this setting in place. In addition, features used by websites and services that use cookies might not work correctly in Internet Explorer.
