User-Provided Information: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, date of birth and sex, when you register for the Services. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. We may collect information from you, such as your first and last name, gender and e-mail addresses, and password when you create an account to log in to our network (“Account”). If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our application(s), we may collect the unique device id number. If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to provide you with location-based information and advertising. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can either reinstall the application(s) or deactivate GPS on your mobile device. When you post content (text, images, photographs, messages, comments or any other kind of content that is not your e-mail address) on our Site, the information contained in your posting will be stored in our servers and other users will be able to see it, along with your profile photo and any other information that you choose to make public on your public profile page (“Profile”). The information that you provide in your Community Public Profile will be visible to others, including anonymous visitors to the Site.
Cookies Information: When you visit alt12.com or other websites associated with the Services, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and allows the Company to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. Company uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser's directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you register with or view our site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. At this time, Company does not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking, including “do-not-track” signals.
Clear Gifs Information: When you use the Services, we may employ clear gifs (aka, Web Beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously. No personally identifiable information is collected using these clear gifs. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and allow us to improve our Services for our users.
Mobile Services: We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our application(s). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your geographic location, how you use the application(s), and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our application(s) crash on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our application(s). This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.
Location Information: If you have enabled location services on your phone, we collect your location information to provide appropriate local groups in your community. If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your phone.
We use the information collected from you to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Services. Generally speaking, we use the collected information to communicate with you, fulfill your requests, customize the content and advertising, improve our products and services, protect our and your rights, and comply with laws and regulations. By providing Company your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you Services-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as newsletters, changes to features of the Services, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by sending an email message to support [at] alt12 [dot] com with the word "No email" in the subject field. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
Company may use certain information about you and/or your user content without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as analyzing how the Services are used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, personalizing advertisements and promotions and improving our Services.
We may use the information collected via cookies, clear gifs, and log files to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Services; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our Services; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and traffic; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP; (f) help you efficiently access your information after you sign in; and (g) improve our Services.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting on the Services (for instance, in user content you post) becomes available to the public. If you remove your user content, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your user content.
Company does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Company to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.
Change of Control: As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also share such information with any affiliated entity (e.g. parent company or subsidiary) and may transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
Community Public Profile: Certain portions of the information you provide to us may also be displayed in your Community Profile. As an essential element of the Services, most of the personal information you explicitly provide to us when you register or update your Profile is not displayed on your Community Profile. In order for your Profile to be made public, you must go to your Community profile settings and individually change each visibility preference. By default, your Profile is not for public viewing. Your photos, posts, friends, and other content you post to the Site are also meant for public consumption. We may display this content on the Site and further distribute it to a wider audience through third party sites and services. Once displayed on publicly viewable web pages, that information can be collected and used by others. We cannot control who reads your postings or what other users may do with the information that you voluntarily post, so it is very important that you do not put personal information in your posts. Once you have posted information publicly, while you will still be able to edit and delete it on the Site, you will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search engines).
Company uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Company and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Company makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Company, at all times.
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through Company, in which case Company may not be able to provide certain services to you. If you signed up for an account with us, you may change or update the personally identifiable information you submit to us or cancel such account. Please note that if you cancel your account, we may retain some information about you but will remove your profile from the Services.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to have your SNS account (e.g., Facebook) linked to your account, then you may de-link the SNS account in the “preferences” section in your account settings. You may also manage the sharing of certain personal information with us when you connect with us through an SNS, such as through Facebook. Please refer to the privacy settings of the SNS to determine how you may adjust our permissions and manage the interactivity between the Services and your social media account or mobile device.
You may change any of your personal information in your account by editing your profile within your account or by sending an e-mail to us at the e-mail address set forth below. You may request deletion of your personal information by us, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request, but please note that we may be required to keep such information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We may also retain your information for fraud or similar purposes.
You can stop all collection of information by the Application(s) by uninstalling the Application(s). You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the Application(s) marketplace or network.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Company does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at support [at] alt12 [dot] com.
