Information TapThere Collects

TapThere collects two types of data about users: (1) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us (described below under User-Supplied Information) and (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the TapThere Service (described below under Automatically Collected Data).

User-Supplied Information: In using the TapThere Service, for example when you register with us, or if you send us an email, you will provide TapThere with data generally called personally identifiable information. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving TapThere permission to use and store that information consistent with this Privacy Notice. Additionally, please know that when you register or sign in to the TapThere Service, you are not anonymous to us.

Automatically Collected Data: The TapThere Service operating on a website automatically logs non-personally identifiable information such as Internet Protocol address (IP Address), a unique user ID, the content and pages that you access on the TapThere Service and the dates and times that you visit the TapThere Service. In addition, if you come to the TapThere Service via a link from another site, we may also track the source of that link.

TapThere may use cookies to track user traffic patterns as described above. TapThere may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser.

Information we Obtain from Other Sources.

We may collect information about you from other sources, including from partners, and from commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases). The following are examples of information we may collect from other sources:

  1. Data you authorize us to access through your use of Facebook Connect.

In general, the types and amount of personally identifiable information we collect vary depending on the activity. TapThere endeavors to limit the collection of personally identifiable information to information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our stated collection purposes.

The Way TapThere Uses Information

TapThere uses personally identifiable information to establish and enhance our relationship with you. TapThere may use the information that you provide, or that we collect, to operate, maintain, enhance, and deliver the various features and services found on the TapThere Service; as well as to track user-generated content and users to comply as a service provider with the DMCA and other applicable laws.

TapThere uses all of the information that we collect from users to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the TapThere Service works and looks, and to create new features and functionality. Further, TapThere may use automatically collected data to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit TapThere; (b) monitor your participation in various sections of the TapThere Service; (c) customize our service to you, including by providing you with recommendations and (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

We may use your e-mail address for administrative communications such as notifying you of major TapThere Service updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security-related notices. In certain cases, we may contact you to offer to facilitate an introduction to another company or person, including companies with which we have business relationships. If you do not want to have us contact you for these purposes in the future, you can opt out.

How TapThere May Disclose Information

TapThere does not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior consent.

We may share your personally identifiable information with companies that provide services to us, including outside vendors, contractors, or agents who help us manage our business activities. Such entities only use your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and for no other purpose than to provide us with necessary services.

We may allow access to certain content, including personally identifiable information, through our application programming interface (API), as described below.

Public video and information access by applications

If you have posted a video as public, certain applications (apps) may access and use, through our API, the video and other publicly available information associated with you (basic information):

  • the public video (including its title, and public comments you include with the video);
  • the name (or pseudonym) associated with your account;
  • the profile image associated with you;
  • the profile URL (which may include user ID) for the account.

If you do not want developers to have access to and use of this basic information through our API, please mark your videos as private.

Also, if you are OK with app access to and use of your video but do not want developers to have access to your real name or profile image (for example, if it is a picture of your face), please use a pseudonym or handle and use a profile image that does not consist of a picture of you.

Authenticated access by applications

Certain apps may want to do the following types of activities:

  • Manage relationships: to manage user relationships such as follow, unfollow, block, and unblock people, and to approve people who want to follow you;
  • Manage likes: to manage likes on your behalf; and
  • Manage comments: to manage and posts comments on your behalf.

We require the app developers to explain what actions they will take and also what information (including personally identifiable information) they need to access in order to take these actions, and to get your approval. In addition, we require developers to explain their privacy practices to you by providing a link to their privacy policy, privacy notice, or similar expression of their privacy practices.

Limitations on access by applications

In both cases described above, app developers are not allowed to use your personally identifiable information for marketing or promotional purposes, and are otherwise restricted in their use of your information by the terms of our App Developer Agreement.

TapThere may disclose personally identifiable information if required to do so by law or under the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (including, without limitation, U.S. copyright or trademark laws) or respond to a court order, subpoena, judicial or other governmental requirement or warrant in a manner required by the requesting entity.

TapThere also reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; enforce our Terms of Use; protect TapThere from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to initiate, render, bill and collect for amounts owed to TapThere; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the TapThere Service; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of TapThere, our Users, or others.

In the event that TapThere is acquired by, merged with, or our assets are transferred to, another entity, such entity may be able to use your personal information under the terms of this Privacy Notice.
