To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct
use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and
managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online
and through the Services. However, please bear in mind that no Internet
transmission, mobile telephone transmission, or wireless transmission is ever
100% secure or error-free. More specifically, email sent to or from this site or
through the Services may not be secure. As a result, you should take particular
care in deciding what information you send via email.
Any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access
any part of this site are your responsibility; take care to safeguard them. TxtJet takes
reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse,
and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction and does store in a database,

Links to Other Web Sites
Links or references to other web sites may appear within this site. We do not control
sites other than those operated by TxtJet. Visitors to other web sites are encouraged to
read their privacy policies before exploring them.
Children under the age of 13 are not the intended audience for this site. We will not
knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents
to be aware of their children's use of the Internet and discuss what kind of information
they are allowed to disclose to Web sites.
Active Information Collection
This site may actively collect information from its visitors both by asking them
specific questions and by facilitating direct communications with us via email, feedback
forms, live chat, etc. Some of the information that visitors submit may be personally
identifiable information (this is, information that can be uniquely identified with an
individual, such as full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on).
In some cases we might collect non-personally-identifiable information that you elect
to provide voluntarily, such as gender or zip code. This site may also offer some
features and activities (such as newsletter subscriptions, downloads, etc.) which may
require you to submit information in order to receive or benefit from them. You will be
informed at each information collection point what information is required and what
information is optional.
Passive Information Collection
Like many other web sites, this site may also collect some information passively as
you navigate through the site (that is, this information is gathered without your
actively providing the information), using various technologies and means, such as
navigational data collection. Navigational data ("log files," "server logs," and "clickstream"
data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes,
and to communicate information to visitors. This site may or may not use navigational data.
One of the ways information may be passively collected is by the use of Internet Protocol
(IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service
provider so you can access the Internet. IP addresses are generally considered to be non-personally
identifiable information, because most IP addresses are dynamic (they change each time you connect
to the Internet), rather than static (unique to any one particular user's computer). We may use your
IP address to improve or administer the site, diagnose server problems, report aggregate information,
or to determine the fastest connection route between your computer and our site.
Another method for passive information collection is by means of "cookies." A "cookie" is a small
data text file, which a Web site stores on your computer's hard drive (if your Web browser permits)
that can later be retrieved to identify you. "Session cookies" are temporary bits of information
that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session
cookies are used to improve navigation on Web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information.
This site may use both cookies and session cookies.
If you do not wish to receive cookies from this or any other site, you can change your computer's
settings so that it will no longer accept cookies. Be aware that in some cases, you need to accept
cookies from a site to take full advantage of its services. This is especially true on sites that
require a user ID or a password.
