Information Automatically Gathered About All Visitors
We may collect aggregate and user-specific information on your interaction with our Services, including which pages you access or visit and your interaction with certain Service features, including e-mails and text messages. This information is used to generate reports that help us assess the value of the various Services we provide. We also use the information we collect to improve the content of our Services. We can provide better Services if we know how visitors are utilizing our Services, how often they use our Services and how long they stay on particular pages and/or applications.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your connection to the Internet, including your IP address (but not the e-mail address), when you utilize our Services. Your IP address does not contain personally identifiable information, nor does it identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our Services to you upon request, to tailor our Services to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our Services platforms.
To help make our Services more responsive to the needs of our users, we may utilize a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie.” A cookie does not identify you, just the computer or device that you are using to access our Services.
In addition, we can access cookies later in your current session or in a later session in which you are accessing our Services in order to improve your interactions with our Services.
If your use of a component of our Services requires you to register, a cookie may be used to automatically identify you as a registered user when you are using our Services. These cookies are known as persistent cookies and continue on your computer or mobile device after the initial session in which they are created.
This cookie allows us to maintain information containing the products or services you are purchasing and/or utilizing while you are online. To limit unauthorized access, this cookie, also called a session cookie, expires whenever you exit a browser session.
Like many other commercial sites, our Services may utilize an electronic file called a web beacon to count users who have visited a page or to recognize users by accessing certain cookies. Our Services
and/or our partner websites may use web beacons for auditing purposes and to collect information from the Services. Information recorded through these web beacons is used to report anonymous individual and/or aggregate information about our users from our partners. Aggregate information may include demographic and usage information.

California residents who are registered users of the Services and are under the age of 18 are entitled, in accordance with California law, to request and obtain removal of content and information that they themselves post on the Services. You may request such removal by emailing us at email@example.com.

About Third Party Advertising
We may use third party advertising companies, including, for example, Amazon or Google Analytics to serve ads when you use our Services. These companies may use information (generally, not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to our sites and/or use of our Services and to other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies may employ cookies and clear GIFs to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and clear GIFs is generally not personally identifiable (unless, for example, you provide personally identifiable information to them through an ad or e-mail message). We encourage you to read these businesses’ privacy policies if you should have any concerns about how they will care for your personal information. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, see the Network Advertising Initiative’s consumer website.

Information Gathered by Voluntary Submission
To make use of certain Service features, users may need to register and provide certain information as part of the registration or participation process. We may ask, for example, for your name, e-mail address, gender, age, and zip code. Certain Services may also require access to your camera data, location, product password, or product log data.

If you do not supply this information, we may be unable to provide you with the Services and content we make available to others accessing our Services.
We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collect it, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. In addition, we may keep your personal information as needed to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and/or enforce any of our agreements.

Children under the Age of 13
If you are under the age of 13, do not send us any information about yourself such as your name, address or e-mail address. You may only send us personally identifiable information if your parents have verified their consent to the collection of such information.
E-mails and Text Messages from Us
Upon registering for our Services, you may begin receiving communications from us. In addition, you may receive e-mails and/or text messages regarding the status of your account, including confirmations, notices of expiration and renewal and other related electronic correspondence. If you have signed up for certain Services, you may begin receiving promotional e-mail and/or text messages. You may stop receiving these communications if you follow the “unsubscribe” instructions located on each communication. We may send you an e-mail or text message inviting you to participate in subscriber or website user surveys related to the Services. Such surveys greatly help us improve our Services. Any information you give us in those surveys will not be shared with any third parties except in aggregate form.
What We Do with the Information We Gather About You
We or one of our partner companies and/or affiliated companies may perform statistical, marketing, and demographic analyses of the users of our Services. In addition, we may generally inform our advertisers/clients about the users of our Services. When we present information to our advertisers/clients—to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising through our Services—it is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our sites and utilization of our Services. In some cases, we may provide certain personal information to partner companies and/or affiliated companies in order for them to offer Services on behalf of us, or, in certain instances, if we are contractually obligated to provide such information. In addition, in some cases we may provide certain personal information to legal officials as described in “Compliance with Legal Process” below. Further, please note that if TapOnIt, or any of its subsidiaries or lines of business is merged, acquired, divested, financed, sold, disposed of or dissolved, including through merger of, consolidation, sale or divestiture of assets, the relevant customer database, including personally identifiable information we may possess about you, may, in whole or in part, be sold, disposed of, transferred, divested, or otherwise disclosed as part of that transaction or proceeding.
In addition, in some cases, we contract with third parties to provide services for us, including credit card and bill processing, shipping, e-mail distribution, list processing and analytics or promotions management. We provide these third parties only with the information necessary for them to perform their specific services. These service providers are restricted from using this information in any way other than to provide services to us, and they may not share this information with anyone else nor may they resell this data.
Compliance with Legal Process
We may disclose personal information if we or one of our partner companies or affiliated companies is required by law to disclose personal information, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to comply with a law or some legal process, to protect or defend our rights and property, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Services or to protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.
