Service Providers


We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), provide the Service on our behalf, perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used. It also allows us to gain additional insights on how our website and pages are being used. This allows us to make better informed decisions on any changes and optimizations that can be made which in return provides a better user experience.


These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Analytics


We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service. At present we use the following third-party Service Providers;


StatCounter
StatCounter is a web analytics service offered by StatCounter that tracks and reports website traffic. StatCounter uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. StatCounter may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.


You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to StatCounter by refusing their cookie (refusal cookie) on their website by clicking the "Refuse Statcounter Analytics Cookies" button. This will prevent the StatCounter Analytics JavaScript from sharing information with StatCounter Analytics about visits activity.

Payments


We may provide paid products and/or services within the Service. In that case, we use third-party services for payment processing (e.g. payment processors).
We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information.


During our pre-launch period, there are no payment processors we currently work with yet. This will be update shortly before launch.


However, as a minimum you can expect the major common payment processing providers;

  • Stripe
  • PayPal


Links to Other Sites


Our Service may contain links either as simple text links or more commonly banner ad / image links that link to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.


We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.


We do not allow any type of fraudulent links and/or links that are not SSL secure. Meaning the links provided for any type of ad will have to re-direct to a secure destination URL.


Any non-SSL links (http only) are prohibited and will not be added to our platform. We advise you to find any reputable SSL certificate company that issues SSL's or contact your web hosting service provider who can advise you accordingly on how to secure your site and if that is applicable to you.


Alternatively, a link shortening service could be used to secure your link. A service that Alphabetical Order XYZ is planning to provide for its users. This will likely be the default way of how we secure all of our links on our platform.


We will update our Privacy Policy once we know exactly how this will be implemented during either pre-launch or after we have launched.


Children's Privacy


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 Child 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.

Changes to This Privacy Policy


We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.


Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page and the "effective date" at the top of this Privacy Policy will be updated accordingly.
