What Information We Collect
User Statistics. When you visit our Site, we automatically collect information about your visit using tracking technology, including your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique device or user ID, system and browser type, the referring address website, the content and pages that you access on the Site or mobile application, and the dates and times that you visit the Site. As discussed below, we use technology, including cookies, web beacons, and other similar technology, to automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information for system administration, troubleshooting, and to identify you when you visit our Site through your computer or mobile device so that we can enhance your online experience and make our advertising more relevant.
Data From Other Sources. We may collect information from third party websites with whom we connect. For example, if you connect to our site via Facebook, Facebook provides us with certain information from your Facebook account, which may include, without limitation, your Facebook User ID, amount of activity (i. e., comments, likes) that may occur in response to posts, certain demographic information and other information, to the extent that you elect to make it publicly available on Facebook and/or explicitly opt to make it available to this Site and any Facebook functionality included on the Site.
In order to provide the services or offers available to you on this Site, we may also supplement your information (whether or not personally identifiable) with information from third party sources with whom we have contracted for the purpose of verifying the contact information you have provided. We may also obtain information about you from other sources, including affiliates, data aggregators, and public databases. The information we collect may be combined to create a more detailed picture of you, which allows us to better understand the products and services you might be interested in. We are not responsible for any actions, content of websites, or privacy policies of such third parties. Check the applicable privacy policies of third parties when providing information via such third party websites.
How We Use Your Information
In addition to any other uses described in this Policy, we may use and share the information (whether or not personally identifiable) that you provide to us to:
- Generate a personal profile of you to make your next visit to the Site and other sites that are owned or controlled by us more personalized;
- Complete transactions and/or respond to your requests or for trouble-shooting or system administration purposes;
- E-mail information regarding the Site, the Site’s contents and features, and associated notifications, updates, promotions and special offers to you;
- Compile anonymous statistical information and analyses, and provide that anonymous information to third parties;
- Provide your information to affiliates or third party service providers to fulfill services you have explicitly requested.
- Provide, sell or rent your information to third parties for advertising purposes.
If you would prefer not to have your information shared with our business partners, affiliated companies or other third parties, you may opt out by emailing email@example.com. Also, if you are already receiving thetizzy.com emails and no longer wish to receive such communications, simply follow the “unsubscribe” instructions that appear in every thetizzy.com e-mail, or contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org to modify your subscriptions.
We may release account information and other Personally Identifiable Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with applicable law, to enforce our legal and contractual rights, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the Site, Users, or others. We may in some circumstances be required to disclose information (including Personally Identifiable Information) in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. We may also turn over information about you if we believe we must do so in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this Policy, you consent to our right to do so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we believe we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us.
At some point, we may establish subsidiaries or other related companies, or merge with or be acquired by another company. When that happens, then we may disclose to them your information (personally identifiable and otherwise), in which case we will request that they abide by this Policy. We may also disclose some Personally Identifiable Information to a potential acquirer, although such disclosure would be subject to normal and customary confidentiality requirements.
Please be aware that our affiliated institutions, promotional partners, advertisers, sponsors, and other third-party web sites accessible through the Site may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. We are not responsible for any actions, content of websites or privacy policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on or through linked websites.
YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE SITE OR PROVIDE ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THROUGH THE SITE OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, SUBMITTING OR POSTING ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION TO THE SITE OR IN RESPONSE TO ANY EMAIL OR OTHER COMMUNICATION SENT TO YOU VIA THE SITE OR REGARDING THE SERVICES) UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR INFORMATION TO BE USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY.
How We Protect Your Information
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission, or method of electronic storage, is ever fully secure or error free and we therefore cannot guarantee its absolute security. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personally Identifiable Information to us or to any other party via the Internet or through e-mail.
Collection Of Information From Minors.
We do not direct any of our content specifically to minors. The Site is not intended for users under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect or use Personally Identifiable Information from users under the age of 18. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to instruct their children to never provide Personally Identifiable Information though this Site or any other web site without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 18 has provided Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Site, please contact us and we will endeavor to delete any Personally Identifiable Information we have collected about that user.
If we materially change this Policy, we will post the changes to this Policy, so that you are aware of what personally identifiable information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review the Site frequently for any changes. Revised versions of this Policy will be posted on the Site and will be effective when posted. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, will be subject to, and will be deemed to have accepted, the changes in any amended or revised Policy by your continued use of our services or the Site.
