INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, address, mobile telephone number, e-mail address and other information that you provide to us or that you include in any TigerText profile or account (“Personal Information”). You may be asked to provide us with certain Personal Information when you register to use the Services, and at other times. The decision to provide this information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to provide the requested information, you may not be able to use certain features of the Services.
We automatically collect usage information that does not identify an individual user but allows us to collect information regarding how users access and use the Services (“Usage Data”). For example, when you download and use Services such as TigerText, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use and the device identifier (or “UDID”). Additionally, each time you use the Site, we automatically collect information regarding the type of web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Site. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Services and to enhance and update the Services.
When you send or receive messages using our Services, we may temporarily process and store your messages, log and contact data, and other related information (“Message Data”) in order to provide these Services to you. Although we strive to delete your Message Data as soon as the message is transmitted, we cannot guarantee that the Message Data will be completely deleted. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that the Message Data will be deleted and therefore any Message Data that you send is sent at your own risk.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHEN WE MAY SHARE THAT INFORMATION
From time to time, we may establish business relationships with other businesses that we believe are trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, customer relationship management and data storage and management. We provide our Service Providers with only the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information and Message Data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information or Message Data in any other manner than as specified by TigerText.
Standard Analytics Information
We may use and disclose to third parties certain Usage Data, which does not identify individual users, regarding the Services.
We may share Personal Information, Usage Data and Message Data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with TigerText. If TigerText is merged, acquired, or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information, Usage Data and Message Data in connection with such transaction.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
TigerText cooperates with government and law enforcement officials to enforce and comply with the law. We may therefore disclose Personal Information, Usage Data, Message Data, and any other information about you, if we deem that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process (such as a subpoena or court order) or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce the Terms or the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of TigerText, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
BE CAREFUL HOW YOU SHARE YOUR OWN INFORMATION
Please be aware that information shared on a publicly available profile page, community page or other public forum may be accessed by the public. Additionally, when you share information with third parties, using the Services or otherwise, that information may be passed along or made public by others. Therefore, anyone with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.
TigerText is committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information and Message Data. We employ security measures designed to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access. Regardless of efforts, no data transmission over the Internet or other network, including any of TigerText’s services can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Services and any information you transmit is sent at your own risk.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. By using the Services, you promise that you are at least 13 years old. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received or collected Personal Information from a user of the Services who is under the age of 13, we will attempt to immediately delete that information from our files and records. Furthermore, we encourage users of the Services that are minors that are 13 years of age or older to ask their parents or guardians for permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet.
If you believe a child who is under the age of 13 has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at support@TigerText.com.
