Welcome to TurnSocial.com, a website owned and controlled by TurnSocial, Inc. ("TurnSocial", "we", "us", or "our"). We operate the TurnSocial platform, which enables websites to integrate applications and web toolbars into their websites, thus providing certain functionalities to such website's users. We are aware of the trust you place in us and our responsibility to protect your privacy. As part of this responsibility, we provide this privacy policy to let you know what information we collect, how we use it, share it and protect it.

When we use the term "Anonymous Information" in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that cannot be used to identify you and is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information.

As a general rule there are two categories of users of the Site and Services: "Publishers" who are operators or publishers of websites that make the TurnSocial application and web toolbar platform available on their website, and "End Users" who are individual visitors of a website and use the TurnSocial application and web toolbar platform for different use cases (collectively, "you").

3. Additional Information about the TurnSocial application and web toolbar platform

We operate the TurnSocial application and web toolbar platform (the "TurnSocial Platform"), which adds functionality to Publishers. If you are reading this policy, you are probably familiar with our web toolbar (collectively, the "TurnSocial bar") that Publishers place on their websites.

The previous Sections also apply to the use of the TurnSocial Platform. However, this Section is intended to clarify certain aspects with regard to the collection, usage and sharing of your information as part of the TurnSocial platform.

(a) The Information We Gather and How We Use It:

(b) Information Sharing

We share the information we collect through the TurnSocial platform in the same way described in "Our Site and Services" Section above. In addition, we may assist our advertising partners in setting cookies so that we can share all or some of the Anonymous Information with them. Our advertising partners use the Anonymous Information to deliver targeted advertising. Please see the section below on Choice if you do not want us to share information with our advertising partners. To be clear the Anonymous Information provided to our advertising partners does not contain any Personal Information of End Users or any information that can be associated with any Publisher or Publisher domain.

(c) Choice

As noted above, we may have helped our advertising partners set Cookies. In order to ensure that no additional information is collected by these Cookies for the purpose of delivering targeted advertising, you can clear all of your Cookies as provided in your browser's instructions. You can also opt-out from other network advertising from the opt-out page of the Network Advertising Initiative.

Finally, we allow Publishers to prohibit us from collecting information about their End Users.

4. Information security

We take reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to Personal Information to TurnSocial employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination, if they fail to meet these obligations. Despite these measures, you should know that we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information and mistakes may happen.

5. Children

We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personal Information from individuals who are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site or Services are designed to attract people under the age of 13. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. If we obtain knowledge that a user is under the age of 13, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases.

Our Site and Services contain applications from and to third party websites and services. The fact that we link to a website or service or allow you to use the application is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices.
