We know it's a lot of text! (Terms come next!)
Because Pikchur is intended for users to share photos, videos and status messages with their friends, it is important to distinguish between what we will share with third parties, and what users are themselves sharing on the Site. We do not generally restrict what you share with your friends on the Site, and you are solely responsible for the content and privacy of what you share. Pikchur, however, does not sell personal information to third parties at any time for any reason. The information we collect, as described below, is used solely to facilitate the delivery to you of our Services. Despite our policy against the sale or use of personal information of users other than for the purpose of delivering the Services, users should be aware that what they share on the Site may be discovered by third parties without the involvement of Pikchur, including, without limitation, search engine crawlers, bots and the like. Users should always take that into consideration whenever they share something, whether on our Site or on other third-party sites.
Pikchur adheres to the US safe harbor privacy principles of Notice, Choice, Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity, Access and Enforcement, and is registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce's safe harbor program.
If you have any questions about this Policy, please contact us at support[at]Pikchur.com.
Information you provide
If you choose to use Pikchur to facilitate with the sharing of photos, videos and status messages, you must provide us with your username and password for each site. You should be aware that for certain sites, this may expose your email credentials.
Contents of entries
The contents of any entry that you post directly to the Site, including any text, videos, or photos are stored and maintained on our servers in order to publish these items on the accounts you synced with us. Your submitted content will be associated with your account.
We maintain and process your personal information in order to provide your Pikchur account and access. We store passwords for third-party services in order to display the information on Pikchur. We do this in order to provide Services to you. In addition to the above, Pikchur may process personal information for such purposes as: You may change your Pikchur account settings in the Pikchur “Settings” section. If you wish to terminate your Pikchur account, you can do so by emailing us at support [at] pikchur.com. You can decline to submit personal information to our Service, in which case Pikchur may not be able to provide the Service to you.
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 Pikchur employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
Pikchur processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
Accessing and updating personal information
When you use Pikchur, we make good faith efforts 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. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Links to Third Party Sites
This Policy only applies to the Pikchur website and services. We do not exercise control over the sites that our service links to. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to read such privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personally-identifying information, and Pikchur and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your personally-identifying information by any third party.
Pikchur regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or Pikchur’s treatment of personal information by contacting us at support[at]pikchur.com. When we receive formal written complaints at this address, it is Pikchur's policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Pikchur and an individual.
Changes to this policy
This Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice. Each version of this Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date, and we will also keep prior versions of this Policy in an archive for your review.
