3. Information TalkToMe.com Collects
4. Our Disclosure of Your Information
5. User Account Cancellation Procedures
Entry to this Site requires age verification. TalkToMe.com requires all Users and users to be at least eighteen (18) years old to use any area of the TalkToMe.com Site and requires that all Users and Users agree to the terms of the Age Verification Agreement. Children are not eligible to use TalkToMe.com and we ask that minors (under the age of eighteen (18)) not to submit any personal information to us.
2.1. TalkToMe.com has certain security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which digitally encrypts your information as it is transferred from your computer to TalkToMe.com. We take the following measures to protect user information once it is received by the Site:
- employees have limited and controlled access to User information;
- measures have been taken so that servers and the data stored thereon are in a secure physical location;
- security software is used where TalkToMe.com determines it to be both appropriate and cost effective;
- employees are informed of all security protocol on a regular basis; and
- web security procedures are quality-assured weekly.
2.2. Although we strive to keep your personal information secure, no security measures are absolute and fool-proof and there is always a possibility that a security breach could occur, resulting in the release of a User’s data or information.
3.1. Our primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a smooth and efficient experience while you’re using TalkToMe.com’s website services, and to keep you informed of opportunities available on those services. This allows us to provide services and features that are designed to meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience easier and quicker. To this end, we may share information you provide with TalkToMe.com-related entities worldwide, eg. its parents, affiliates, partners, joint venturers, correspondents, associates and subsidiaries and their successors and assigns (collectively herein “TalkToMe.com Entities”).
3.3. Because we connect Users by telephone, we require you to enter a valid telephone number to connect with other Users through TalkToMe.com. At no time will we share your telephone number with any other Users with whom you communicate. Because TalkToMe.com initiates all calls, other Users cannot see your telephone number—not even with Caller ID.
3.4. We may use your email, mailing address, and phone number to contact you regarding account activities, new product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of TalkToMe.com and its affiliates. If you do not wish to receive such communications from TalkToMe.com you have the ability to stop receiving these mail communications by providing your User name and email address in a Customer Support Form or by unchecking the box on the My Preferences page, which asks if you wish to receive such mailings. You will, however, always receive administrative emails from TalkToMe.com that are related to the usage and functionality of TalkToMe.com. You may not opt-out of these administrative emails unless you cancel your Usership.
3.5. If you have a Talker listing and/or are earning money on TalkToMe.com, we collect additional information from you in order to process and remit to you your Talker fees and/or verify your personal and/or listing information. We collect your mailing address to remit payments, and we collect your Social Security number and/or Federal Tax ID number to prepare Form 1099-MISC if necessary and to help us verify your identity. Users who are not United States taxpayers will not be asked for their Social Security numbers or Federal Tax ID numbers, though they may need to report income to their local tax authority and may be required to provide equivalent evidence of their identity.
3.6. TalkToMe.com may collect credit card information, add money to your User account, or use your credit card to take advantage of special promotions. TalkToMe.com uses a third party to process credit cards for billing purposes. This third party may store or retain a User’s personally identifiable information. In certain cases, we will also use credit card information to help us verify your identity. We do not charge or bill the credit card when we collect credit card information for identity verification purposes.
3.7. You can review, update and change some of your personally identifiable information—including your email address, date of birth, and PIN number on the My Account page. You can review, update, or change your address and credit card information by going to the Add Money page on the Site, clicking on the “New Card,” and then adding your name, address, and new or corrected card number. You may correct, update, or hide any of your TalkToMe.com profiles by clicking on the profile name on the Account Dashboard page. You may also update or correct information by filling out an updated Customer Support Form or you may write to TalktoMe.com at Customer Support, TalktoMe.com, 110 South 7th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
3.8. You may also provide TalkToMe.com with additional profile information (such as experience, affiliations, on-call schedule, etc.) that is displayed publicly on the Site, on your home page, or in your listings. Other than the profile information submitted by our Users, and except as noted herein, TalkToMe.com does not disclose any personally identifying information to other Users without your permission. If you choose to use TalkToMe.com forums, know that any personally identifiable information that you post can be read, collected, or used by others, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information that you provide.
3.9. We use information we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the Site, to resolve disputes, identify potential liabilities, troubleshoot problems, and enforce our User Agreement. At times, we may look at your User account information and transaction history to identify problems or resolve disputes. Moreover, such information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical constraints and the fact that we backup our systems. Therefore, our Users’ personally identifiable information may not be completely removed from our databases in response to User requests.
3.10. We may from time to time run promotions in which we ask Users or visitors for demographic information (like their Zip Code, State/Province or age). We may also run contests on TalkToMe.com in which we ask Users or visitors for demographic information. We use this data to tailor your experience, showing content that we think you might be interested in and displaying the content according to your preferences. We also use demographic information to determine eligibility for certain promotions and contests.
3.11. From time to time TalkToMe.com may ask Users to participate in surveys. Such surveys may ask Users for contact information (like their email address). We may use contact information from our surveys to send you information about our company.
3.12. TalkToMe.com may contain links to other sites. TalkToMe.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage you to review the policies of these sites.
3.13. TalkToMe.com also facilitates communication among Users through our on-site Mail system. Messages sent via Mail are identified only by your User name.
3.14. TalkToMe.com may use certain information collected from our Users in aggregate form to tailor our Users’ experience at the Site, showing you content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences. TalkToMe.com may also supplement the information you provide by purchasing information relating to you from third-party data providers. TalkToMe.com uses this information to improve its marketing and promotional efforts.
3.16. TalkToMe.com uses your IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the Site. Generally, IP addresses tell us the location from which a person is connecting to us, what service provider the person is using and which parts of the Site the Site user is visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that your session will be tracked, but you will remain anonymous. We reserve the right to track IP addresses for the purposes of fraud prevention, and we reserve the right to release IP addresses to legal authorities.
3.17. If you send TalkToMe.com email correspondence, or if other Users or other third parties send us email or other correspondence regarding a particular User’s activities or postings on the Site, TalkToMe.com may collect such information.
3.18. TalktoMe.com strictly enforces and requires that all Users comply with its Anti-Spam Policy.
4.2. TalkToMe.com may also exchange personally identifiable information among TalkToMe.com Entities worldwide. If you are registering on any sites controlled by TalkToMe.com Entities located in the European Union, your personally identifiable information must be disclosed to TalkToMe.com affiliates outside of the European Union in order to allow Users worldwide to contact and be contacted by you. Therefore, as a condition of your Usership you hereby agree and consent to the sharing of your personally identifiable information with TalkToMe.com and TalkToMe.com Entities worldwide.
