Privacy Policy of PrivacyTools.com

YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US

This page describes what information we collect, and how that information might be used.

What information do we collect?

We may collect information from you when you fill out a form on our website, register for our service, or use our service. However, you may visit our site anonymously by not filling out any forms, registering, or using our service.

When submitting a contact form, you may be asked to enter your name and email address. When registering for our service, our payment processor will request financial information necessary to process and confirm the validity of your order. Details about your IP address, browser, and operating system may be recorded at any point.

While using our service, details of usage may be logged for technical and legal purposes. Such information would normally only be used to troubleshoot technical issues, except when requested by search warrant, subpoena, or other valid legal process (we're happy to say that such a request has only occurred twice in our 8+ year history of thousands of legitimate customers).

What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect may be used in one or more of the following ways:

  • To respond to your inquiries
  • To facilitate customer service
  • To deliver a requested product/service
  • To customize your experience
  • To troubleshoot our service
  • To improve our website
  • To prevent fraud/abuse
  • To comply with the law

Email Usage

The email address that you provide for registration or form inquiries will only be used in compliance with the list above (e.g. to send you information and updates pertaining to your order or inquiry).

Private Information Security (How we protect your information)

We have implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the privacy of your personal information when you place an order or register for our service. In particular, all sensitive financial information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology directly to our payment provider's database, only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems.

Your financial information will NOT be stored on our servers. For your safety and protection, our payment gateway provider, (PayPal.com), keeps credit card and other payment details encrypted and secure on your behalf.

3rd Party Disclosure

Your information, whether public or private, will NOT be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering a purchased product/service, preventing fraud/abuse, complying with the law, enforcing site policies, or protecting our or others rights, property, or safety.

The above paragraph does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting business, or servicing you. Examples of such exceptions include our payment processor (currently PayPal.com), or any future owner/operator of the iPrivacyTools website and service.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer's hard drive via your web browser, which enable us to recognize your browser and capture/remember certain information. You are free to disable cookies in your web browser if you wish.

We use cookies to compile aggregate data about our site traffic, interaction, clickthroughs, and referrers.

Our site is not configured to react to DNT (do not track) signals from your web browser. But again, you are free to disable cookies while using our website.

Third party links

Any 3rd party websites linked to from our website may or may not have their own privacy policies. Either way, we cannot accept responsibility or liability for the content and activities of such linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent, except when necessary to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others rights, property, or safety.

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), and do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years of age or older.
