It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our mobile and web apps. This Privacy Policy applies to the TigerView by AU mobile app ("TigerView", "App"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the app, if any. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected through the app, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through App and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy sets forth the general rules and policies governing your use of the App. Depending on your activities when using App, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

  • App Store and Analytics Data

    App stores, such as Google Play, the Apple App Store, and others, may collect aggregated, non-personally-identifying information on the App's users, including statistics about installations and uninstallations. AU does not control or direct the collection of this information; please review your app store's privacy policy for further information.

    The App may include analytics tools provided by Google, including Google Analytics for Firebase. Analytics for Firebase uses cookies, identifiers for mobile devices (e.g., Android Advertising Identifier or Advertising Identifier for iOS) or similar technology to collect data. We want to learn how you use the App so we can improve it in future updates, and how you interact with the App's content, so we can continue to deliver engaging experiences. Data collected may include statistics on page views, app performance and crashes, and usage of app features including augmented content views. The data is stored within the Google Analytics system. Data is encrypted in transit. Neither your name, email address, nor any other personally identifiable information will be linked to analytics data.

    We use Google Analytics to collect information about use of this website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve our website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.

    Learn more about how Google uses data when you use the App or this website.

    You may also personalize TigerView by entering your name, email address, and (optionally) year of graduation by Auburn University. By doing so, you are opting in to receive occasional email updates about TigerView and Auburn University programs, events, and giving opportunities. You may opt out of these messages at any time by clicking Unsubscribe at the bottom of any message, or by emailing your request to [email protected]. Personalization is optional. Data submitted through the Personalize It form is securely and privately stored by our email service provider, Mailchimp. For more information, see the Mailchimp Privacy Policy.

    Any data collected will never be rented, sold, or otherwise given to third parties without the express consent of Auburn University, and any messages sent to you if you have opted in will be created and sent by Auburn University and its authorized agents/service providers only.

  • Image Recognition and Geolocation Features

    At this time, TigerView does not use geolocation to provide Augmented Reality experiences. Should such features be enabled, they will be listed in the changelog of the app. Both images and geolocation data (should such features ever be enabled) are only collected while on the viewer screen (after tapping View Now), and do not continue to be collected after tapping Exit Viewer. Images and/or geolocation data are collected solely to facilitate the Augmented Reality experience, and are not retained or stored on your device or by any third party.

    Because TigerView utilizes a cloud service to enable faster processing of images, your camera's view will be transmitted every two seconds to the secure server of our AR service provider while you are using the viewer. Our service provider does not retain images, and uses them only to match against target images and send your device a signal if one is recognized.

  • Using TigerView

    By using TigerView, you acknowledge that anonymous statistical data on how you use the app will be collected and transmitted, and consent to this collection. You also agree to receive occasional emails from Auburn University if, and only if, you opt-in on the Personalize It screen.

  • Security

    The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

  • Developer

    TigerView is developed and maintained by McNutt & Company, LLC on behalf of Auburn University. You may contact the developer with questions or concerns about the app, including data usage, by emailing [email protected].

  • Governing Law and Changes

    This policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Alabama. Although most changes are likely to be minor, AU may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and in AU's sole discretion. AU encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of App after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.The latest version of this policy, including any changes, can be found at http://www.tigerviewapp.com by clicking the Privacy Policy link at the bottom.
