Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Taptalk (“Taptalk”) operates an api and corresponding apps (on http://taptalk.me). It is Taptalk’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our services.

Website Visitors

Like most internet-service operators, Taptalk collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers, apps and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Taptalk’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Taptalk’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Taptalk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Taptalk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users that use the services and visitors.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Taptalk’s websites and users of Taptalk’s apps choose to interact with Taptalk in ways that require Taptalk to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Taptalk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users of our app to provide an email address. In each case, Taptalk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Taptalk. Taptalk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Taptalk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Taptalk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Taptalk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Taptalk’s behalf or to provide services available at Taptalk’s webservices, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Taptalk’s webservices, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Taptalk will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Taptalk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Taptalk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Taptalk, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Taptalk and have supplied your email address, Taptalk may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Taptalk and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Taptalk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Taptalk uses cookies to help Taptalk identify and track visitors, their usage of Taptalk website, and their website access preferences. Taptalk visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Taptalk’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Taptalk’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Taptalk, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Taptalk goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Taptalk may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Taptalk and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Taptalk may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Taptalk’s sole discretion. Taptalk encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of these services after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
