Wave is committed to protecting the privacy of scrambls users. Through scrambls we put users in control of their information so using the Web does not have to mean losing your privacy. We collect the minimum amount of information about you necessary for scrambls to share your messages with your contacts and to enable Wave to provide scrambls in the most efficient manner.
This document describes our commitment to uphold and reinforce your privacy by describing the nature of the information that we collect from you and how that information is used.
Scrambls uses standard Google Analytics (www.google.com/analytics), which uses first-party cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to measure site usage patterns. This service collects such information in aggregate and cannot be related directly to you. We also measure our own registration and service usage data. This information is also collected in aggregate and cannot be related directly to you unless explicitly stated below. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
The information that you provide to scrambls is used solely for the purpose of operating, maintaining, improving and providing an efficient and customized service. We do not share your personal identifier information with any third parties, such as advertisers, developers, games, applications or websites, unless compelled to do so under an order enforceable under applicable law. As referenced above, we do collect aggregate, non-personally identifiable information relating to site usage for the purposes of analyzing, managing and improving the scrambls service.
Information relating to your account will be retained only as long as necessary to: (i) support the above described uses and support the scrambls service and (ii) comply with applicable legislation, regulatory requests and relevant orders from competent courts
If Wave or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, your information will generally be one of the business assets required to be transferred and, therefore, we reserve the right to include such information in any such transfer.
You may access your account at any time to change or update your account information. You may also customize your account by defining, or modifying, specific attributes of those that you authorize to read your posts, such as domains, email addresses, time zones, etc.
If you decide to close your scrambls account all information we have gathered will be permanently deleted within 30 days of notification of your intent to close your account. Notice should be provided to [email protected].
If you delete your account, you will, within 30 days of deletion of your account, be provided with all keys related to your posts and a facility to access and read your posts.
All communications with our web site are encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. We employ data security techniques to appropriately and reasonably protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside scrambls. Internal access to the information is limited to those employees who have a business need for that information.
This site and the scrambls service are not intended to be used by children. We do not permit registration by, and will not knowingly collect or use any information from, anyone under 13 years of age.
The scrambls site provides links to sites of our partners and others that offer information, products, and services that are relevant to the scrambls service. If you choose to obtain information or purchase a product or service through a linked third party, any information you provide to that third party will be subject to its privacy policies, which may be substantially different from our policies. Such third parties may provide us information in the aggregate concerning visits to their sites.
