Welcome to TransLash. Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and protect information that applies to our website.

This policy sets out how TransLash collects and uses the information that we collect about you when you use the TransLash website. This policy also explains the choices that you can make about the way that we use your information.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT & ITS USE

 

We collect the following types of information about you:

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE US DIRECTLY

 

We may ask for certain information such as a username, your first and last name, birthdate, phone number, profession and e-mail address when you register for a TransLash account, or if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the website, and may collect information you provide in User Content you post to the website. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the website and integrated features. We may also use this information to correspond with you, and to address any issues you raise about the website and your experience.

INFORMATION WE MAY RECEIVE FROM THIRD PARTIES

 

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our website through a third-party connection or log-in, for example, through Facebook Connect, by “following,” “liking,” etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to TransLash. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account (for example, your Facebook UID), an access token necessary to access that service, any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the TransLash website. You may also unlink your third party account from the TransLash website by adjusting your settings on the third party service. If you unlink your third party account, we will no longer receive information collected about you in connection with that service.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU AUTOMATICALLY

 

We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the TransLash website. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the TransLash website experience.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

  • Billing;

  • Hosting and storage;
  • Analytics; and
  • Delivery of physical products.

Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the TransLash website, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. Subject to your profile and privacy settings, any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.

TransLash may also share your information with third parties in certain circumstances, such as where:

  • we are required to do so as a result of a court order, subpoena or other legal requirement;

We may share certain information such as your location, browser and cookie data and other data relating to your use of our website with our business partners to deliver personalized advertisements (“ads”) that may be of interest to you. TransLash may allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve personalized advertisements either on the website or on third party websites, including Facebook and Google. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or mobile device, these personalized ads and ad links, and will automatically receive your IP address when they do so. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, device identifiers, location data, and clear gifs, see above) to compile information about your browser’s or device’s visits and usage patterns on the website, and to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize the advertising content.

Please note that an advertiser may ask TransLash to show an ad to a certain audience of Users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, TransLash determines the target audience and TransLash serves the advertising to that audience and only provides anonymous aggregated data to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.

The TransLash Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, third-party advertisers. Please consult the respective privacy policies of such advertisers or contact such advertisers for more information.
