Updated January 10, 2017

 

TapClicks, Inc. (“TapClicks”, “we” or “us”) cares about your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected and used by TapClicks.  By using the TapClicks websites, products, services, and applications (“Services”), you agree to the TapClicks Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

We collect information to improve our Services and provide better experiences to all of our users.  TapClicks collects both personal information and non-personal information.  

“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual. It also includes other information that may be associated with Personal Information.  

We collect the following types of Personal Information:  

  • Contact information that allows us to communicate with you, such as your name, postal addresses, email addresses, social media website user account names, telephone numbers, or other addresses at which you receive communications from or on behalf of TapClicks.
  • Billing and payment information as needed to process payments for our Services, such as your credit or debit card number, expiration date, and card verification number.

“Non-Personal information” is information that, alone, cannot be used to identify or contact you. Such non-Personal information may include, for example, gender, birth date, or zip code. You may be asked to submit non-Personal information with Personal information or separately.

We collect such information in two ways: 1) Information you provide; and 2) Information we receive from your use of our Services.

    • Subscribe to newsletters;

Automatically Collected Information

When you use TapClicks Services, we may collect certain information as described below for such purposes as improvement of our products and services, troubleshooting bugs, providing the Services, managing the Services, tracking usage, providing content for referring traffic sources and improving overall performance of the Services.

We monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, and to improve the content of our website to better match the interests of our website users. We may combine this automatically collected and other non-Personal information with Personal information, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal information under this Privacy Policy.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us.

Despite our best efforts, however, no security measures are completely impenetrable.

Use of TapClicks Online Forums

The Services may contain user submitted content, comments and opinions in online forums and communities, for example, the TapClicks Marketplace, or FAQs.  Such content is for informational purposes only and TapClicks is not responsible for user submitted content. TapClicks may provide or recommend responses as a possible solution based on the information provided; every potential issue may involve several factors not detailed in the conversations captured in an electronic forum and TapClicks can therefore provide no guarantee as to the efficacy of any proposed solutions on the community forums. TapClicks disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions and conduct of any third parties in connection with or related to your use of the Services.  We recommend and caution all users not to disclose Personal Information within the forums or communities.  TapClicks does not pre-screen third-party user content and does not undertake the responsibility to remove any harmful or offensive content, but reserves the right, in our sole discretion to remove any and all content for any or no reason at any time.

Data Transfers from the EU to the United States

TapClicks complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States.  TapClicks has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit: Privacy Shield Link – Click here 

TapClicks is responsible for the processing of Personal Information it receives under the Privacy Shield Framework and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. We comply with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, we are subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.  In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

EU individuals have rights to access personal data about them, and to limit use and disclosure of their personal data. In addition to the rights provided in this Privacy Policy, please note the following.  Because TapClicks personnel have limited ability to access data our customers submit to our Services, if you wish to request access, to limit use, or to limit disclosure, please provide the name of the TapClicks customer who submitted your data to our Services. We will refer your request to that customer, and will support them as needed in responding to your request.

If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to write to us as indicated below. We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of Personal Information in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles. If an issue cannot be resolved through our internal dispute resolution mechanism, individuals may contact or submit a complaint, at no cost, to the JAMS EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Program, which is based in the United States and which serves as our third-party alternative dispute resolution provider. We will cooperate with JAMS pursuant to the JAMS International Mediation Rules, which are accessible on the JAMS website at http://www.jamsadr.com. For residual complaints not fully or partially resolved by other means, you may be able to invoke binding arbitration as detailed in the Privacy Shield Principles.
