TxtJet Privacy Policy

PRIVACY POLICY


This site is operated by TxtJet. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.


Our Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about the policies that govern our collection, use, and disclosure of the information that you may provide via our web site and as part of the email forwarding and responding services provided by TxtJet (the "Services"). Before using or submitting information to this site or registering for the Services, please read this entire Privacy Policy. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy generally describes TxtJet's site and Services, although the particular site you are viewing may not include all the items described. This site is governed solely by applicable Federal and State laws and governmental regulations in the United States. Use of this site constitutes your consent to application of such laws and regulations and to our Privacy Policy.


Information Use and Disclosure

We collect your name, email address, email server address, email server user name, email server password, mobile carrier/provider, and mobile telephone number as part of the registration process so as to provide and to complete the Services. This information is used to provide the Services for which you have subscribed, and potentially for other private promotional and marketing purposes. Further, as part of the Services, we will have access to the email addresses of those you are corresponding with via the Services. Your email password is used for connectivity purposes in receiving and sending your email from your current email provider(s). We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete those Services, such as to our subcontractors and suppliers.


Your name, email address and password, and any other personally identifiable information you provide may be used by TxtJet, its business partners and consultants to provide you with information about TxtJet's products, services and materials or to develop products, services and materials.


We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our site and to share with advertisers. Specifically, you agree that we may scan the content and text of your emails and text messages received and sent by the Services for identification of demographics information, trend or key words so as to better understand the advertising promotions you would be interested in. Phone numbers may be used to gather geographic information for these same purposes. We may use a computer software program to scan the content of your private email automatically however no person at TxtJet themselves will read the email content and text.


Further, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.


Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.


TxtJet will not sell or rent the personally identifiable information collected via this site to a third party. We reserve the right to disclose information to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law. You can notify TxtJet that you wish to discontinue receiving Services or information at any time (see How To Contact Us below).


By using this site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy.


Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may use your information to improve the value of our site's content, to present the site in a fashion customized to match your preferences, to supply information to you (if you requested it), for research and marketing purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.


We may combine personally identifiable information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. TxtJet will take reasonable measure to prevent passively collected information from being combined with personally identifiable information, unless you consent otherwise. We will also make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not personally identifiable.


You will be receiving email via the Services on either your cellular telephone or PDA, with the author identified as the original sender. Notifications forwarded via email to you through these Services are not to be considered as unsolicited email or spam email. You agree that any email messages or text message you receive are not seen as committing fraud, trespass, or unlawful conversion of mail headers originating at an SMTP server not affiliated with the sender. Any email or txt message issued by TxtJet is being sent to you as part of the Services.


Access and Updates

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.


To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.


Security

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, as part of the Services, the email address and subject line of the emails and text messages sent via the Services by and to you. The encryption used for the Services is a symmetric block cipher, which uses an encryption key of 128 bits. A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection is used to secure all data transferred between your browser and the Services. This site has been authenticated by GoDaddy and issued a 256-bit Secure Server ID certificate. This combination ensures a secure SSL connection and provides protection against interception and hacking of any personally identifiable information.


Links to Other Web Sites

Links or references to other web sites may appear within this site. We do not control these web sites. You should be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any web sites other than those operated by TxtJet. Visitors to other web sites are encouraged to read their privacy policies before exploring them.


About Children

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.
