This Privacy Notice is incorporated into and is subject to the Stixchat Terms of Service. Your use of the Stixchat Sites, Stixchat Software and Stixchat Services and any personal information you provide on the Stixchat Sites, Stixchat Services or via Stixchat Software remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Notice and our Terms of Service.

Please note that any status information or other content posted at the direction or discretion of users onto the Stixchat Sites becomes published content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Notice.

1. The Information Stixchat Collects

User Provided Information: You provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your phone number and user name) to Stixchat when choosing to participate in various uses of the Stixchat Services.

Log File Information:When you use the Stixchat application, our servers automatically record certain information that our Stixchat application sends whenever you update or request any information. These server logs may include information such as the amount of time spent on particular screens, the date and time of your request, phone number you are registering and various status information.

2. The Way Stixchat Uses Information

If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Stixchat Application, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Stixchat Application.

Any personal information or status content that you voluntarily disclose becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your name is displayed to other users when you login the Stixchat Application and other users can contact you through your preferred communication method. Any content that you submit to the Stixchat Services may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.

We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major the Stixchat Application changes or for customer service purposes).

We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Stixchat Sites, Stixchat Software and Stixchat Services and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. We use log file information to: (a) store login information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Stixchat Services or Stixchat Software; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

3. When Stixchat Discloses Information

Other users of Stixchat Application may see your status information in a way that is consistent with the use of the site. We do not share your personally identifiable information (such as name or phone number) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.

We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on Stixchat.

We may release personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law) or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.

Stixchat also reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Stixchat believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of our app, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Stixchat, our users or others.

4. Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Stixchat Application, in which case Stixchat may not be able to provide certain services to you.

Please contact Stixchat via email with any questions or comments about this Privacy Notice, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices.

5. Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

Stixchat is currently ad-free, but in the future we may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Stixchat Sites or Stixchat Software. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or to Stixchat Software, the advertisements and links that appear on the Stixchat Sites or in Stixchat Software. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

Stixchat does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Stixchat to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18 and above) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18 and above who have viewed pieces of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Stixchat Sites or Stixchat Services, such as the number of times you set a status to determine which ads to deliver to you.

6. Our Commitment to Data Security

Stixchat uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Stixchat and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Stixchat makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If Stixchat learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Stixchat may post a notice on the Stixchat Site if a security breach occurs.

7. Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For this reason, Stixchat does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Stixchat Site from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is directed to or intended to be used by persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use Stixchat at any time or in any manner. If Stixchat learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 has been collected, then Stixchat may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible.

8. In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

In the event that Stixchat is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
