Tapook™ may also utilize information in order to adapt the Services for a specific user’s needs and for research purposes. Information Collected Automatically: As part of the Services, Tapook™ may automatically collect non-personally identifiable usage data in aggregate form for statistical measuring purposes. This type of data enables Tapook™ to determine, among other things, how often users access specific parts of the Services in order to allow Tapook™ to revise, improve and develop the Services. As part of this improvement function, Tapook™ may provide aggregate information to its partners. However, Tapook™ will not disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would allow for a user to be personally identified. Invitations: If a user invites someone to use the Services, Tapook™ will disclose the user’s real name as part of the invitation sent to the email address of the user invited. This information is necessary to ensure the invited individual knows who has contacted them. Promotions: From time to time Tapook™ may present special offers, contests, sweepstakes or other promotions. In order to enter into said promotions, a user may need to provide additional personal information. To the extent that Tapook™ intends to share such information with any third party involved in the promotion, such information and shared use will be specifically described as part of the terms of any offer, contest, sweepstakes or promotion.

Users have the option of setting their internet browser to accept, reject, or provide notification of the use of a cookie. Cookies do not consist of personally identifiable information per se but could be used to connect a user with personal information, such as an email address. Unless the user sets its internet browser to reject the use of a cookie, Tapook™ may use them for various uses including recording and saving password information and determining number and retention of users employing the Services.

An IP address is the set of numbers that every computer is assigned by the specific Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). These numbers allow a server to automatically identify a user’s computer and Tapook™ may use it to help diagnose server problems or otherwise to administer the Services.

All pertinent information collected will only be used to provide the Services. From time to time Tapook™ may engage third parties for technical, processing or other services related to the Services. However, Tapook™ will use all reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that such parties are obligated to keep the information secure and confidential. Sale of Business or Assets: In some cases, Tapook™ may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. In the event that all or substantially all of Tapook™’ assets are sold, given, or otherwise transferred to another entity, all user information collected as part of access to and use of the Tapook™ service would likely be transferred to that entity as well. By using the Services users acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Tapook™ may continue to use its information as set forth in this policy. Hyperlinks: The Services may contain hyperlinks, pointers or introductions to other sites on the internet or services that may be maintained by third parties. These other sites may use cookies, collect data or solicit personally identifiable information using methods not confirming to Tapook™’s Privacy Policy. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Tapook™ of any third-party site or any materials contained therein. Tapook™ does not control, and is not responsible for, the availability, accuracy, or currency of such third-party site or any information, content, products or services accessible from such third-party site.
