PRIVACY POLICY


Revised/updated: March 26, 2019

Testimonial Tree respects the privacy of our Subscribers, Content Submitters, and other users who visit http://get.testimonialtree.com/ (our “Website”). This policy (“Privacy Policy”) is intended to inform you of our policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of any information we obtain about you based on your use of our Website.

By visiting our website or using our Services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Any capitalized terms not defined below will have the meanings set forth in our Terms of Service which can be found at http://get.testimonialtree.com/.

  1. INFORMATION COLLECTED

The information we collect falls into two (2) categories: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.  “Non-personal information” is information that our technology collects in aggregate, without identify you including, your internet connection, the device you use to access our Website, and tracking data relating to your use of our Website.

The only time we collect “Personal Information” is when you voluntarily submit it through our Website or other Testimonial Tree websites or Services, or when you send us an e-mail.  For example, certain forms and pages may allow you to submit information such as your name, email address, or other information in order to receive information about our Services or for other reasons.  When you choose to provide your information, you are agreeing to allow us to use your information for the purposes stated.  We value your information and pay close attention to how your Personal Information is used, stored, and shared.  We use your Personal Information sensibly and do not sell your personal information under any circumstances and only provide your personal information to third-parties in limited situations as provided below.

Other “Personal Information” we may collect is from other sources like telephone to telefax numbers you provide to us.  We may add this information to the information we have already collected about you in order to improve solutions and services we provide.

In addition to “Personal Information”, we may collect “Non-Personal Information.”  For example, as you navigate our website, certain passive information is collected, including your Internet Protocol address, browser type, and operating system. We also use cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed. This type of information is collected to make our solutions and services more useful to you.

We may also ask you for or collect information about your company or organization. Any information about your company that is publicly accessible (such as information found on your website or through search engines or business information database services) will not be considered Personal Information and our use of that information may not be restricted in any way.

  1. OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

If you use our products or services to create or market a website, whether for yourself or another business or organization, the information and content of that website or marketing campaign will not be considered Personal Information; accordingly, we may freely use that information without restriction.  For example, in order to drive traffic to your website and to make your website easier to find, we may need to disclose keywords about your business, your business name, general and specific description about your business, information about your location, and information about your products and services to third-party services and to the general public. Additionally, unless otherwise restricted in a fully executed business agreement between you and us, we reserve the right to publish the website, marketing campaign, and/or a description of the products and services we are providing you in our online portfolio and news releases.

We use your Personal Information to create your account, to communicate with you about products and services you have purchased, to offer you additional products and services, to improve our services and personalize your experience with us, and to bill you.  We also use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to enforce our Terms of Service and other policies to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

We will not share your Personal Information with other businesses unless (i) necessary for us to perform or fulfill the products and services you order from us, or (ii) the business is providing products or services to us.

However, you may “opt-out” at any time by following the unsubscribe instruction provided in the e-mail or replying with “unsubscribe” if no unsubscribe instructions are available.

We also use cookies so that our Website can remember you and provide you with the information you are most likely to need.  For example, when you return to our Website, cookies identify you and prompt the site to provide your username, so you can sign in more quickly.  Cookies also allow our Website to remind you of your past purchases and to suggest similar products and services.  Finally, we use information gained through cookies to compile statistical information about use of our Website, such as the time users spend at the site and the pages they visit most often.  Those statistics do not include Personal Information.
