PRIVACY POLICY

TOGETHER is committed to protecting its users’ privacy. Our Privacy Policy (“Policy”) is designed to help you understand how we collect, use and safeguard the information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our Service. The Policy applies to your use ofwww.together.vote(the “Site”) and any other related services, applications, or functionalities. By visiting, uploading, or otherwise interacting with the Site you are subject to this Policy. Please read this policy carefully, especially before providing personal information or submissions through our image upload portal.

  1. Information We Collect and How We Use It

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.

Mmm, Cookies

TOGETHER may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server's interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customized ads, content or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or "hashed" (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don't respond to "do-not-track" requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

  1. Do Not Track

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.

  1. Your Rights Regarding The Use Of Your Personal Information.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes.  If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

  1. Creating an account

(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.

  1. California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA requires all commercial websites and online services accessible by California residences to conspicuously post a privacy policy. Per CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  1. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

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.

  1. Links to Other Websites


TOGETHER may, from time to time, contain links to other sites. However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by those sites, or the information or content they contain. We encourage our users to be aware of this fact when they leave TOGETHER, and to read the privacy statements of any website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by TOGETHER through our site and does not apply to any third-party websites linked.

  1. Anti-SPAM Policy

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.

  1. What if TOGETHER is sold or closes up shop?


In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, TOGETHER reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do that if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

  1.   Sharing of Information with Partners

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.

Online advertising for TOGETHER is delivered by third-party advertising companies. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movie openings. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on TOGETHER may includeDoubleClickGoogle and Blue Kai. If you would like more information about the collection, use and disclosure practices of these companies, and/or your options for not having this information used by these companies, click on the company names above and follow the links to the company websites.

  1. Changes to our Privacy Policy


We may periodically modify, alter, or update this Privacy Policy. We will alert readers to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TOGETHER constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
