This policy is a part of the Bitpush member agreement, but it controls over any conflicts with that agreement. This policy only addresses our practices associated with the Bitpush.news website and the associated iPhone and Android apps. Other websites, apps and services we operate may be subject to other policies and practices.
General Practices (also applicable to non-members)
We automatically collect information about your visits to our website, usage of the service, and your interaction with the messages we send, including the browser you are using, the URLs you came from and go to, your operating system, your IP address, and usage and browsing habits. We use this information to diagnose and resolve server problems, analyze trends, help target offers and other ads, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information.
Like most websites, our website uses "cookies," small data files stored on your computer which include a unique identifier. These include cookies from us and from our business partners. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You can configure your browser to reject cookies, but doing so will prevent you from logging into our website. Our systems are not configured to accept browsers’ Do Not Track signals.
Our website and emails may contain "web beacons" that help us measure and track member activity. Some of these web beacons come from us; others come from our service providers.
Using the Service
We allow you to create a personal profile and submit information such as your motto, photo, expertise and personal interests.
Communications with Other Members
We give you a variety of ways to communicate with other users and share Content (as defined in the member agreement). Some of these communications are visible to the entire app, although we may give users ways to block your communications. In some cases, we may limit your ability to edit or remove Content from Bitpush.
Third Party Offers
We know that you do not want marketing from third parties just because you use the app, so we do not turn over your personally identifiable information to third party marketers without your express consent.
Other Provisions (applicable to both members and non-members)
Some of Bitpush’s functionality may be operated by third party service providers, and in the course of providing this functionality, these service providers may have access to some of your personal data to facilitate your usage of this service.
We may allow third parties to place or recognize a cookie and, using the cookie or otherwise, collect and use data (including, possibly, personally identifiable information) from your visits to this and other websites to provide us with analytics services and to serve ads to you.
Our "Corporate Family."
We may share your data with any parent company, subsidiaries, other entities under a common control or third party acquirers. We expect these other entities will honor this policy. Also, we may allow a potential acquirer or merger partner to review our data, although we would restrict their use and disclosure of this data during the diligence phase.
Government Relations and Lawsuits
We may disclose data about you to the government if we are required to do so or as we think is prudent for safety or security reasons; and you authorize us to make these disclosures. We may also disclose data about you in connection with actual or potential legal proceedings (a) in response to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders, (b) if we are required to do so in other ways, (c) if such disclosures might mitigate our liability, or (d) to enforce our rights.
Limits on Our Abilities
While we work hard to respect your privacy, like any other complex online service, we might inadvertently use or disclose your data in ways inconsistent with this policy. For example, a temporary software glitch could lead to public display of your personal data despite your contrary preferences. We might also make ad hoc uses of your data in ways not mentioned here. In these anomalous situations, we will try to rectify the anomaly as soon as we can.
Subject to any legal obligations to delete data, we may choose to retain information in our server logs, our databases and our records indefinitely.
Bitpush uses https on its web pages to reduce the risk of unauthorized interception of your communications during your visits to the website or app. However, we cannot guarantee that your personal data won’t be intercepted or improperly accessed.
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
