We do our best to avoid use of legal jargons and explain in simple terms our thinking and practices on private policy which covers :
- What information we collect about you
- What we use it for, and
- Instances in which we share it with others.
The Information We Collect
When you create an account with TRIMIY, you give us your full name and email address, and create a username and password. If you want, you can give us a pseudonym instead of your legal name.
If you don’t feel like creating an account from scratch, you may be able to sign in through an account you already have with another service, such as Facebook.
Your user profile helps you customize your account and connect with other TRIMIY users. Your profile automatically includes your name and username. You can also add a profile picture and whatever else you’d like in the “Bio” field.
To help you connect with other TRIMIY users and to personalize your TRIMIY experience, we may ask for additional information, including your contacts, location or a list of the apps on your mobile device. At times, with your permission we request for other information, including information about installed apps on your mobile device to improve and personalize your experience. We anonymize this information and delete it after we make initial recommendations to help you get started on TRIMIY, and we don’t make recommendations based on sensitive information.
We receive some other information automatically when you interact with TRIMIY online. This includes data about your device, software, operating system, operating system- provided device or user-specific advertising IDs for advertisement tracking (“Advertising IDs”), your IP address and the date and time of each request you make to TRIMIY.
So that we can make your TRIMIY experience better, we collect information about how you view and interact with content and advertisements through TRIMIY web and app applications and on third-party sites with TRIMIY’s widgets.
You may link your TRIMIY account to other services you use, such as social networking sites. If you connect your TRIMIY account with a third-party service, we collect information through that service. This information varies depending on the service and your privacy settings there, but may include profile information (e.g., age, gender and location), your contacts on that service and content that you’ve made publicly available there.
How We Use And Disclose Your Information
TRIMIY Blog is about sharing content you find interesting. That’s why your TRIMIY profile, the people and sources you follow or that follow you, the articles you create, the comments you post and the content you interact with in TRIMIY online platforms are all public.
Aside from that, we use your information to keep TRIMIY Blog running, better understand how you use our service, customize your experience (including the content, marketing materials, and advertisements you see), prevent abuse and improve TRIMIY Blog. TRIMIY may also work with advertising partners to serve you third-party advertisements, including interest-based advertisements. If you opt out, you’ll still see ads, but they won’t be tailored using information like your interests, visits to other services, or demographics. Alternatively, you can opt out by discontinuing your use of TRIMIY.
We share your personally identifiable information only under these circumstances:
With your consent, after letting you know what information will be shared, and with whom. If we believe it’s reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal process. If we’re going to release your information, our policy is to provide you with reasonable advance notice under the circumstances unless we’re prohibited from doing so by law or court order.
We may disclose aggregate information about how our users use TRIMIY in a manner doesn’t identify you individually.
Web Storage And Tracking Policy
Cookies are ways to keep information about your use of Internet services on your own mobile device or computer.
TRIMIY also uses web beacons in advertisements to allow TRIMIY and its advertising partners to see how users view and engage with advertisements. Depending on your advertising preferences set in your operating system, TRIMIY may share your Advertising ID with advertising partners in an anonymous fashion that is not tied to your name or email address.
Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you don’t want your Internet browsing activity to be tracked. The Internet community hasn’t reached a consensus on how to best honor these signals, so we don’t respond to Do-Not-Track requests at this time.
If you’d like to delete your account, you can do so in the TRIMIY application under Settings (gear icon) in the Edit Profile detailed menu. If we delete your account, your user profile will no longer be visible on our service, though we may still keep some log information in non-personally identifiable form and any other information you have made publicly available through TRIMIY (comments to content, for example).
