Reevue Something

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is insanely important to us.

Most of the sections below are pretty standard for privacy-conscious web companies. As Reevue Something offers a unique service, the sections Reevue Something users will probably be most interested in are the ones pertaining to reevues and Gathering of Personally-Identifiable Information. The short version is that: yes, we connect to your social account when you sign in to those to share a reevue, but we don’t do anything scummy with the info, and we do our best to reflect the privacy options you chose for your social network account. Read on for details.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Reevue Something collects non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Reevue Something’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Reevue Something’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Reevue Something may release non-personally-identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Reevue Something also collects potentially personally-identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Reevue Something only discloses user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifiable information as described within this document.

Reevues

Reevues (the brief reviews of things posted by users of our service) are of course the primary content submitted to our service, and as you would expect, we store these in our database, and show them to other users that are viewing related things on our site. We do our very best to protect the privacy of the user that has posted the reevue, in-so-far as they have chosen to protect the privacy of the social account that they have used for sharing the reevue.

For example, if a user posts a reevue to Facebook that can only be seen by their friends (i.e. not publicly visible), we still show that reevue publicly on our site, but the user’s name is anonymized. For example, John Smith from Whittier, California would be shown on our site (in this circumstance) as "J. from California," and there would be no link to their profile on Facebook.

Likewise, if a user posts a reevue to a private Twitter account, the reevue will still be visible on our site, but the user’s name will be anonymized, and we will not link back to their account on Twitter.

These reevues are considered "anonymish," in the parlance of our times.

If a user shares a reevue to a public Twitter account, or shares the reevue on Facebook with a globally visible setting, the user’s name and generally available location will appear along with the reevue on our site. We will also provide a link to that post on Facebook or Twitter, as well as links to the user’s profiles on those services.

Gathering of Personally-Identifiable Information

Certain visitors to Reevue Something’s service choose to interact with Reevue Something in ways that require Reevue Something to gather personally-identifiable information. The amount and type of information that Reevue Something gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Reevue Something collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Reevue Something. Reevue Something does not disclose personally-identifiable information other than as described within this document. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifiable information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.

For example, we ask visitors that wish to post a reevue to login with Twitter and/or Facebook. We store the OAuth tokens necessary to allow us to post reevues to those Facebook and Twitter accounts, on behalf of the user. We connect to those social networks, and retrieve profile information about the user, if available, including: full name, email address, location, profile photo, service username (for Twitter), unique userid number on the service, and the userids of friends (on Facebook) or usernames of people you’re following (on Twitter).

Reevue Something uses the user’s basic information (such as name and general location) to create a simple profile page on Reevue Something, where we correlate the user’s reevues. We strive to only reveal as much information about the user publicly as they have elected to release to the public on those social networks. In all other cases, an anonymized name/location will be used, as described above.

The information Reevue Something collects about a user’s friends and following list are used solely for the purpose of surfacing other reevues on our network that they may be interested in seeing. For example, if a user has logged into Reevue Something using a social network, we have the capability of showing them reevues posted by their friends. We do not use friend information to spam their friends, nor do we make any attempt to contact those friends in any way. Apps that do that kind of thing have a special ring of hell reserved for them!

We don’t disclose this information, except as described within this document.

Aggregated Statistics

Reevue Something may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its service. Reevue Something may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Reevue Something does not disclose personally-identifiable information other than as described within this document.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifiable Information

Reevue Something discloses potentially personally-identifiable and personally-identifiable information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Reevue Something’s behalf or to provide services available at Reevue Something’s service, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Reevue Something’s service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Reevue Something will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifiable and personally-identifiable information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Reevue Something discloses potentially personally-identifiable and personally-identifiable information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Reevue Something believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Reevue Something, third parties or the public at large. If you have chosen to provide Reevue Something with your email address for the purpose of subscribing to announcements, Reevue Something may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Reevue Something and our products. We primarily use Twitter to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it (without any of your personally identifiable information) in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Reevue Something takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifiable and personally-identifiable information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Reevue Something uses cookies to help Reevue Something identify and track visitors, their usage of Reevue Something, and their preferences. Reevue Something visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Reevue Something’s service, with the drawback that certain features of Reevue Something’s service may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Reevue Something, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Reevue Something goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Reevue Something may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Our Policy Towards Children

Mostly we think they’re cute, but not if they lie to create an account for posting on Reevue Something. Since we require our users to login with either a Facebook or Twitter account, and since those services do not currently allow accounts by persons under the age of 13, it follows that Reevue Something does not direct any services towards those under 13 years of age. If you suspect that someone under the age of 13 is posting on Reevue Something, please contact their social account provider to make them aware of this breach of guidelines. You can reach Twitter here and Facebook via this form. If you still need help on this matter, please contact us.

Ads

In the unlikely and horrific event that we resign ourselves to monetizing our service through advertisements, they shall be tastefully done, and the ads may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Reevue Something and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Reevue Something may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Reevue Something’s sole discretion. Reevue Something encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. You may also want to follow us on Twitter, where we will announce any major privacy policy changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
