TIKR reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to posting the revised Privacy Policy on the Site and/or the App. User acknowledges and agrees that it may be required for User to maintain a valid email address as a registered user and that this is User’s responsibility. It is also User’s responsibility to review the Site and/or the App and this Privacy Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. User’s continued use of the Services after such modifications will constitute User’s (i) acknowledgment of the modified Privacy Policy; and (ii) agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

4. Types of Information Collected

In order to better provide Users with access to the Platform and TIKR’s other numerous Services, TIKR collects two types of information about Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (collectively referred to as “User Information”). TIKR’s primary goals in collecting information from User are to provide User with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using the Platform, the Site and the App or any of TIKR’s other Services, to provide the Services and to collect information related to the Platform and the other Services.

4.1 Personally Identifiable Information .  

Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that lets TIKR know the specifics of who Users are. When User engages in certain activities on the Site or the App or otherwise related to the Services, such as contacting TIKR via the provided forms or sending TIKR an email, TIKR may ask User to provide certain information about User by filling out and submitting an online form.  If User elects to engage in these activities, however, TIKR may ask that User provide personal information, such as first and last name, organization name, email address and telephone number.  Depending upon the activity, some of the information TIKR asks User to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If User does not provide the mandatory information with respect to a particular activity (for example, subscribing to a Premium Feature or purchasing any paid Services), User will not be able to engage in that activity.  Users may be required to provide additional personally identifiable information to become a User and to use certain Services.  We will collect certain Personally Identifiable Information (e.g., billing address) as required to process User payments for Premium Features and other paid Services in accordance with our Terms of Use.  Our Terms of Use may also describe other Personally Identifiable Information that may be required from Users.

4.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific User. TIKR gathers certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information about Users based upon their access to and use of the Platform, the Site, the App and/or our other Services, including, but not limited to: traffic data, location data, logs, communication data, the resources that a User accesses and uses on or through the Platform, the Site, the App and/or our other Services, the website's Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) from which User just came, to which URL User next goes, what browser User is using (including the browser’s user agent (UA) string), and User’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.  It can also include including information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device’s unique device identifier, operating system, browser type, and mobile network information.  This information can be compiled and analyzed on both a per-user and an aggregated basis.  We may also collect other Non-Personally Identifiable Information.  In certain cases we may combine Non-Personally Identifiable Information with Personally Identifiable Information in which case all resulting or connected data will be considered Personally Identifiable Information.

4.3 Information from Third Party Sites

We may collect, store and use certain User Information from third party sites and services that are accessible via or integrated with the Platform, the Site or the App or are contemplated by use of the Services (e.g. Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts, AWS Cognito, etc.), including information that may be transmitted by such third party sites in connection with use of the Services. We may also receive access, store and/or use User Information that is collected by third party service providers and our other vendors related to your use of the Services (e.g. Google Analytics, Stripe, Mixpanel, AWS Pinpoint, Algolia, etc.).

5. Collection of User Information .

5.1 Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information

TIKR generally does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about a User unless that User voluntarily provides it to TIKR or it is related to use of a Service in connection with an integrated third party site or account.  User provides certain Personally Identifiable Information to TIKR when User (i) submits web forms or provides/imports information through the Platform, the Site or the App,  including information provided at the time of registering to use the Platform, the Site or the App; (ii) transmits other information by telephone or email, including TIKR’s “contact us” web form; (iii) connects third party accounts or facilitates access by the Platform, the Site or the App to such third party sites; (iv) accesses and/or downloads and installs an App (in each case as applicable);  (v) provides information in an App or allows an App to access certain device permissions or settings;   (vi) subscribes to certain Premium Features or other paid Services; (vii) uploads or shares User Material to the Services; or (viii) provides it via other methods TIKR may request or allow from time to time. TIKR may also collect information from a User at other locations on the Platform, the Site or the App that state that such information is being collected. In certain cases, we may collect Personally Identifiable Information related to your use of the Services automatically after you have subscribed to or purchased a Premium Feature or other paid Service (e.g. we may identify Users after purchase of a Premium Feature or paid Service to ensure that payment has been made and User is using the Premium Feature or Service in accordance with its terms).

5.2 Automatic Collection of User Information

In addition, TIKR may also automatically collect, including through third party service providers (e.g. Google Analytics), certain User Information, including Personally Identifiable Information.  Such User Information may be collected when you use the Services and may not require you to provide or input specific information.  TIKR may use User Information to diagnose problems with the Services and to improve and market the Services and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy.

5.3 Other Potential Methods for Collecting User Information

TIKR, and/or its Affiliates or its service and technology providers may use various other methods to collect Personally and Non-Personally Identifiable Information about Users. These methods may include, but are not limited to (i) cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters  placed on User’s computer or mobile device that identifies User’s web browser; (ii) analytics and user tracking technologies that may allow us to monitor what actions Users take on the Site or the App or otherwise with respect to the Services;  (iii) log Files – information, which is automatically reported by User’s web browser each time User views a web page, possibly including, but not limited to, User’s IP address, browser type and UA string, and language, number of clicks, domain names of websites visited, pages viewed, and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time; (iv) clear gifs - web beacons, which are pieces of data used to track the online usage patterns of Users anonymously, and which may also be used in HTML-based emails sent to Users to track which emails are opened by recipients; (v) third party service-based technologies and information, including, but not limited to, linked services (such as Google Accounts) that User authorizes to share information about User with TIKR; (vi) other social media or third party site connects or authorizations to share information’ (vii) other available technologies that may be integrated into the Site or the App or the other Services; and (viii) requests for data or information collected through the Site, the App or the other Services.

If TIKR should ever file for bankruptcy or have TIKR’s assets sold to or merge with another entity (or otherwise engage in any business combination or similar transaction), information TIKR receives from User through use of the Services is TIKR’s asset and may be transferred without any restriction.

7. Sharing of User Information .  

TIKR may share and disclose User Information with third parties, including as follows:

●        Our Service Providers . We may engage third parties to provide certain portions of the Services and we may provide User Information to them in order to facilitate their activities (e.g. hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfillment, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service, email delivery services, credit card processing, etc.).  Please review our Subprocessor List for additional information regarding our service providers and subprocessors and their privacy practices.

8. Updating and Correcting Information

TIKR believes Users should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided to TIKR. Users may contact TIKR to determine what Personally Identifiable Information we have on such User by contacting TIKR through the appropriate contact information or web forms located on the Platform, the Site and/or the App.

Please include first and last name, address, and email address when contacting TIKR.  TIKR encourages each User to promptly update their Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete a User’s Personally and Non-Personally Identifiable Information without some residual information because of reasons including, but not limited to, server backups and disaster recovery. User acknowledges that altering, updating or deleting any Personally or Non-Personally Identifiable Information may alter the functioning or operation of the Services for User.

9. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information

9.1 Email(s)

TIKR may, from time to time, send User email(s) regarding TIKR’s products and services or the Services. If User does not want to receive such mailings, simply contact TIKR as set forth in this Privacy Policy or as set forth in such emails.

User also has choices with respect to cookies, as more fully described in our Cookie Policy . By modifying browser preferences, User may have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies.

10. Security of Information

The importance of security for all Personally and Non-Personally Identifiable Information associated with TIKR’s Users is important to TIKR.  TIKR values the privacy and security of User Information and uses reasonable efforts to protect User’s Personally and Non-Personally Identifiable Information so that it is secure.  However, User acknowledges that no data transmission or hosting over the Internet or any wired or wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and neither can the storage of such data or information. As a result, while TIKR strives to protect User’s Personally and Non-Personally Identifiable Information, User acknowledges that (i) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet and mobile platforms which are beyond TIKR’s control; (ii) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between User and TIKR through the Services and data and information that is stored by TIKR cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit or in rest by a third party. AS A RESULT, WITH REGARD TO THE SECURITY AND INTEGRITY OF PERSONALLY AND NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, USER USES THE PLATFORM, THE SITE, THE APP AND ALL OF THE OTHER SERVICES AT USER’S OWN RISK.

11. Additional Information on Cookies .

When User uses the Site or certain other Services, TIKR may store cookies on User’s computer in order to facilitate and customize User’s use of the Site or such Services.  Also, as part of your use of the Services, certain service providers may place a separate cookie on your computer (e.g. Google Analytics, Stripe).  A cookie is a small data text file, which a web site stores on User’s computer's hard drive (if User’s Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify User to TIKR.  The cookies make User’s use of the Site or other relevant Services easier, make the Site or Services run more smoothly and help TIKR to maintain and operate the Site and Services securely, although TIKR makes no such guarantees about the operation of the Site or any other Services. User is always free to decline TIKR’s cookies if User’s browser permits, but some parts of the Site or other Services may not work properly in that case.  To learn more about our practices with respect to cookies, please visit our Cookie Policy .

12. Third Party Providers; Scope

12.1 Third Party Providers

Please consult each site's privacy policy, including, without limitation, those set forth above. To the extent possible, we seek to limit the rights of these parties with respect to your User Information where reasonable, and we do not grant any rights to these organizations to use this information for any marketing or other purpose beyond providing services to us to manage business activities.

User should contact the advertisers, providers, or other third parties identified in the Subprocessor List directly if User has any questions about the use of the information that these third parties collect.

13. Do Not Track Disclosures; California Requirements

13.1 Do Not Track

Do Not Track is a privacy preference that Users can set in their web browsers. When a User turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the User. For information about Do Not Track, visit www.allaboutdnt.org . At this time, TIKR does not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. In addition, TIKR may use other technology that is standard to the Internet, such as pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies, to track visitors to the Site or Services or one of the affiliated pages hosted at the TIKR domain. Those tools may be used by us and by third parties to collect information about you and your internet activity, even if you have turned on the Do Not Track signal.  To learn more about these settings and our practices with respect to cookies, please visit our Cookie Policy .

13.2 Request of Information for California Users

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 entitles California Users to request information concerning whether a business has disclosed certain information about you to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
