Personally identifiable information
Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is any information that can be used to identify you, such as your first and last name, your email address, your physical address, phone number, etc. We collect whatever personal data about you that you choose to give us, such as contact email addresses and profile information. We do not require you to use an account to upload images, and if you open an account you do not have to use your real name – you may choose a username and email address that reveal nothing about your identity. If you give us an email address, we’ll probably send you promotional messages once in a while; we’ll try to make them engaging and interesting but of course you’ll be able to opt out at any time.
TOGETHER will never share PII with third parties. However, if TOGETHER has a good faith belief it must do so to meet a legal requirement, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order, we will disclose only the PII necessary to comply with such order. Please be advised, however, that although we take technological precautions to protect your data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, TOGETHER cannot warrant that your information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data is at your own risk.
Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)
TOGETHER may, from time to time, automatically collect and provide aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links. We also log the metadata associated with any images you upload. Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a preference you can set in your browser to let websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting certain information about you. TOGETHER does not currently respond to, or honor, Do Not Track signals or requests from your browser.
(TOGETHER does not currently offer users the ability to create accounts on our site. However, if and when this feature is enabled in the future, the following terms will apply.)
In order to access a profile and post comments on TOGETHER you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username thatdoes not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. TOGETHER asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection.
TOGETHER accounts are backed up regularly. If a user changes the information on his or her account, TOGETHER’s stored data backups may include the user’s original information. If you email anyone at TOGETHER, a record of the addresses and correspondence will continue to exist. We save this information so that we can respond to you and have a record of that correspondence.
TOGETHER does not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected any information or content from anyone under the age of 13, we will delete that information immediately.
TOGETHER is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email ("spam"). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorized third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an "unsubscribe" opt-out link that you may use to ask that we discontinue such emails to you.
As stated above, we may collect and provide aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners, and affiliates, such as how many persons visited a particular page or activity, the average age of our visitors on the site or page, or the likes and dislikes of our visitors, but this information does not include personal information about any individual visitor.
The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on TOGETHER may includeDoubleClick, Google and Blue Kai.
