Your privacy is critically important to us. At twitMate, we believe online privacy is essential and we follow a few fundamental principles:
- ■We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- ■We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, to enable us to provide our service to you or to protect our rights.
Like most website operators, twitMate collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. twitMate’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how twitMate’s visitors use its website. From time to time, twitMate may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
twitMate also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. twitMate only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to twitMate’s websites choose to interact with twitMate in ways that require twitMate to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that twitMate gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a service at twitMate to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with twitMate – by purchasing a Twitter Management Plan, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, twitMate collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with twitMate. twitMate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
twitMate may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. twitMate may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, twitMate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
twitMate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on twitMate’s behalf or to provide services available at twitMate’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using twitMate’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. twitMate will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, twitMate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when twitMate believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of twitMate, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a twitMate website and have supplied and verified your email address, twitMate may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with twitMate. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. twitMate takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. If you request that we delete your twitMate account we will delete all your personal details from our database and close your account for you - this can be requested via email.
If twitMate, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Big Toe Web Design Ltd. goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of twitMate may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
