This Statement of Privacy applies to the TINT website (http://tintup.com) and Hypemarks,
Inc. (doing business as TINT) to inform you of our policies and procedures
regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive
from users of http://www.tintup.com (this "Site"). The TINT website is a social media aggregation platform. By
using TINT and/or other services, you consent to the data practices described
changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will
notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or
by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We
encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on

or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but
not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using,
combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or
among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and
improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your membership
(collectively, the "Service") and to enable users to enjoy and easily
navigate the Site.
When you register with us through the Site and become a TINT
member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to
information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, such as your
name and email address ("Personal Information"). We use your Personal
Information mainly to provide the Service and administer your inquiries.
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration
and the administration and personalization of this service (e.g., without
limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic
information) ("Non-Identifying Information").
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your
Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, and administer your
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal
Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example,
combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to
be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered
Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with
other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information).
We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and
aggregate it with information collected from other TINT Users (defined below)
to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and
value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site and Service are
used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve
you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your
preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with TINT newsletters,
marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of
interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive
such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions
provided in any of the communications or update your "notifications"
information. (See "Changing or Deleting
Information," below.) Please note that we may also use your
Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the
Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Site, whether as a TINT member or a
non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "TINT User"), our
servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you
visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information
such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser
type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our
Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for
on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this
information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the
Site's technical administration, to increase our site's functionality and
user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors’ needs. We also use
this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required
to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or
use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate,
analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above
regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Like many websites, we use "cookies" to collect
information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's
we utilize persistent cookies to save your registration ID and login password
for future logins to the Site. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable
certain features of the Site, to better understand how you interact with the
Site and to monitor aggregate usage by TINT Users and web traffic routing on
the Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your
computer when you log off from the Site and Service and then close your
browser. Third party advertisers on the Site may also place or read cookies on
your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop
accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites
you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use
all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Service.
Our Web pages contain electronic images known as Web beacons
(sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile
aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used and may be used in some
of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by
recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer
communications and marketing campaigns.
You can import contacts from your Facebook or email
account address book to invite friends to use the Service. We collect, but do
not store, the username and password for the Facebook
or email account you wish to import your contacts from and will only use it for
that purpose only.
Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal
Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log
Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other
purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain
your Personal Information.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate
our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related
services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management,
web analytics and improvement of the Site's features) or to assist us in
analyzing how our Site and Service are used. These third parties may have
access to your Personal Information; if they do, this access is only so that
they may perform these tasks on our behalf and they are obligated not to
disclose or use it for any other purpose. We may also provide Personal
Information to our business partners or other trusted entities for the purpose
of providing you with information on goods or services we believe will be of
interest to you. You can, at any time, opt out of receiving such

that track prior visits for the sake of follow-up advertising by opting out at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ads/.

absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site,
you can contact us at email@example.com.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security,
confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored

notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most
expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent
with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or

the reasonable integrity of the data system.

an advertiser by "clicking on" a banner ad or other type of
advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to

regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them.
