Our Policy
Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) of Monument Inc. (“Monument”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Site is operated by Monument and has been created to provide information about our company and our photo management product, mobile applications and related services (together with Monument, the Site, the “Services”) to our Service users and visitors (“you”, “your”). This Privacy Policy sets forth Monument’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from users and visitors to the Site and Services.
Information we collect
When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
Personal data that you provide through the Services: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the Services or use certain Services. Wherever Monument collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.
By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Monument and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with Monument through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Monument may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Monument affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
In operating the Services, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service features.
Monument usage information: We may collect Personal Data and certain personally non-identifiable information directly through the Monument device, including information input during setup, and environmental data collected from Monument’s sensors and other technical feedback from Monument. We may also record and store this data through the Services, subject to this Privacy Policy.
Aggregated personal data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Monument often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Monument may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Monument may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Location information: Our Service may collect and use your location information (for example, by using the GPS on your mobile device) to provide certain functionality of our Service. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described above in the “Aggregated Personal Data” section.
Google analytics: We may allow third party service providers to use cookies or similar technologies to collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites following your use of the Services. For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help the website analyze how users use the Site and enhance your experience when you use the Service. For more information on how Google uses this data, go to http://google.com/policies/privacy/partners. We have also implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (which may include remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Platform integrations, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.

Our use of your personal data and other information
Monument uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. We may also use your Personal Data to provide the Services to you. Monument and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Services to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our users and to improve the Services. Monument and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.
If Monument intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.
Our disclosure of your personal data and other information
Monument is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Monument, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

To take advantage of this feature, we may ask you to grant us permission to do so via the relevant Social Networking Service. When you add a Social Networking Services account to the Service, we may collect relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Social Networking Service and your data contained within that Social Networking Service. As part of such integration, the Social Networking Service may provide us with access to certain information that you have provided to the Social Networking Service, and we will use, store and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, please remember that the manner in which Social Networking Services use, store and disclose your information is governed by the policies of such third parties, and Monument shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Social Networking Services that may be enabled within the Service.
