All of our services currently do not require you to register with us or provide any personal information to us. In order to operate Tip Hero, however, and in order to provide you with Tip Hero services, we may collect the following types of information:
When you use Tip Hero services, the servers we use automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request including date and time of the request, your IP address, your browser type, your browser language, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
When you send email or other communication to Tip Hero, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
Tip Hero may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our products and to customize content and advertising.
websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to read their privacy policies.
In addition to what has been described above, Tip Hero also may process personal information for the following purposes:
(1) Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services
(2) Ensuring the technical functioning of our network
(3) Developing new products and services
Tip Hero processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside your own country. We may process personal information to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as our advertising partners.
When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.
We may, from time-to-time, share with third parties certain pieces of personal information in the aggregate. For example, we may share information related to the number of website visitors who searched for a particular event or clicked on a particular website. Such information does not identify you individually.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
We restrict access to personal information to Tip Hero employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
When you use Tip Hero, we make every reasonable effort to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required.
