COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
As an un-registered user of Mastermind, you can engage in many activities without providing any Personal Information.
However, when you register to use Mastermind, as a Mastermind subscriber, in order to provide the services to you, we may collect the following Personal Information from you:
Contact information such as your name, phone, address and email address;
Demographic information such as your job title, job description and company name and company type; and
Profile data, including your username and password, details about your purchases and the Content that you license from us.
Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
As is true of most applications, when you use Mastermind apps, Mastermind or third party subprocessors contracted by Mastermind may also collect certain technical and routing information about your device to facilitate your use of the app and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as operating system, locale, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your device. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the app and its services. Mastermind also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns across the various Mastermind apps. To better understand the needs of our visitors to the apps we may occasionally match such information with your Personal Information.
In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, and prevent abuse of our system, we may on occasion supplement the Personal Information you submit to us with information from third-party sources. We may supplement the information that we collect directly from you with information stored in third-party databases, such as demographic information or company information in order to make it more likely that any marketing communications we send will be relevant and of interest to you.
When you download and use our Mobile Apps or Services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use, and operating system version.
We ask for the following optional permissions on the Mastermind mobile app and/or the web:
- Calendar: Ask Mastermind to get my Schedule
- Contacts: Ask Mastermind to Text Joe Bloggs
- Location: Ask Mastermind to Start Casting (shows the weather conditions on your TV)
- Phone: Ask Mastermind to Call Joe Bloggs
- SMS: Ask Mastermind to Read my Messages
- Storage: Ask Mastermind to Start Casting (shows your photos on your TV)
- Notifications: Ask Mastermind to Get My Notifications
- Device Usage: Ask Mastermind How Much Battery do I have?
- Device Admin: Ask Mastermind to Start Casting (Casting to Chromecast from Alexa requires Mastermind to be able to Unlock your phone. This requires Mastermind to have Device Admin Permission.)
If you do not grant Mastermind a specific permission, you will not be able to use services that require this permission. You also have the right to withdraw an already-granted permission at any time, effectively rendering any services that require that permission to become unusable.
