At New England Drone Tours (“NEDT” or “We”), are committed to protecting the information about you that you – our registered users and visitors – share with us, and explaining how we collect, process, and share that information online.
We collect information about you including Personal Information you voluntarily provide to us. We don’t require you to give us Personal Information to access public areas of our Sites. This is true unless you live in a country that defines Personal Information to include network identifiers like your Internet Protocol addresses. Certain secure areas of our Sites, however, enable authentication or require you to provide Personal Information when you use specific features on our Sites. If you can’t or choose not to provide us with the Personal Information we reasonably require, we may be unable to provide you with the information or services you have requested. For example, we may collect Personal Information from you when you:
Register for an account with us;
Make on-site purchases;
Interact with our applications;
Ask us to match the information stored on your device’s address book against our public directory of registered users; and
Request customer or technical Information we collect about you, for example, may include but is not limited to your: Name; Postal address; Geolocation (your device’s longitudinal and latitudinal information); E-mail address; Date of birth; and Telephone or mobile number.
To facilitate certain functions on our Sites, we use third parties. Information third parties may collect about you include but are not limited to:
Geolocation (your device’s longitudinal and latitudinal information);
Date of birth;
Telephone or mobile number;
Social security number;
Bank account information (eg. Account and routing number);
Credit card information;
Photocopy of government issued identification;
Analytic information; and
We may also collect certain demographic information (e.g., gender, country of residence, preferences) you provide to us, and may sometimes also combine it with your Personal Information.
In some situations, we may collect, use, and share emotion metrics, analytics, mobile apps used, and other information that no longer identifies you personally, with certain identifiers removed, for trend monitoring, market or product research, and overall technological enhancements.
Depending on the permissions you’ve granted and other factors, we may receive information about your location and mobile device when you download or use apps created by our Sites, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, certain player search results, and other personalized content. We may also share this information with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing activities. Examples of the device information we collect include:
Attributes such as the operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, and device
Device locations, including specific geographic locations, such as through GPS, Bluetooth, or WiFi
Connection information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number, and IP
Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services, and we encourage you to contact your device manufacturer for detailed instructions on how to do that.
NEDT uses third-party payment processors to process payments made to us. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly to our third-party processor, Stripe, whose use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policies.
We advertise in a number of ways, including online through managed social media presences, and on other unaffiliated sites and mobile applications. To understand how our advertising campaigns are performing, we may collect certain information via our sites through our advertising service providers. We or our vendors use several common online tracking tools to collect this information, such as browser and flash cookies, web beacons and other, similar technologies. The information we collect includes IP addresses, the number of page visits, pages viewed via our Sites, search engine referrals, browsing activities over time and across other websites following your visit to one of our Sites or applications, and responses to advertisements and promotions on the websites and applications where we advertise
Social Media Conversion Pixels
We use Conversion Pixels from Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and Google on our Sites. This allows NEDT to keep track of what users do after they see or click on an advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of our various advertisement platforms for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and Google. Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and Google can connect this data with your account and use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with their privacy and data retention policies.
Controlling Online Interest-Based Ads
We sometimes work with online advertising vendors to provide you with relevant and useful ads. This may include ads served on or through our Sites. This may also include ads served on other companies’ websites, online accounts, or mobile applications. These ads may be based on information collected by us or third parties. For example, your postal code may be used to target an ad for people in your area. These ads may also be based on your activities on our Sites or on third party websites, online accounts, or mobile applications.
To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising or to generally opt-out of this type of advertising by those third parties that are members of the self-regulatory programs such as the Network Advertising Initiative, please visit the NAI’s website (www.networkadvertising.org), which will allow you to opt out of Interest-Based Advertising by one, or all, NAI members. For more information about our ad service provider and its cookies, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, you may visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

Our Sites are not intended for those under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of 13 or knowingly track the use of our Sites by these minor users.
4. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
In accordance with applicable law, we may share what we know about you with affiliated and unaffiliated third parties for their marketing activities, or for any purpose allowed by law (California residents see below). In certain instances, we may also help advertisers better reach our users by providing your device ID and type, geographic and geolocation information, language preferences, demographic, and other information obtained from you and other companies. We may run joint or co-sponsored programs or promotions with unaffiliated companies and, as part of that, collect, use, and may share certain information about you, only for the purpose of those programs or promotions. Finally, we may share collected location and Bluetooth data for Interest-Based Advertising, allowing certain advertisers to infer interests and serve ads to our users based on activity and location over time.

When we disclose information about you to external entities that perform services on our behalf, they may access that information only for the purposes of performing those services.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, provide a good or service that our customers purchase or request, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
Comply with a legal obligation.
Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing us at email@example.com
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative. The verifiable consumer request must also describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
