If you do not agree with the changes, then you should stop using the Site and you should notify us that you do not want your information used in accordance with the changes.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.

2. Collection and Use of Information

Our goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with an efficient and enjoyable user experience. You may at any time choose not to provide us with information, but in doing so you may be unable to take full advantage of Site or the Services. In operating our Site, we may collect and process the following data about you:

  • Details of your visits to our Site and the resources that you access, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, including your IP address, the date and time you accessed or left the Site and which pages you viewed. Some parts of our Site use cookies and other technologies to collect this information about your general internet usage. See section below “Use of Cookies” to learn more.
  • Information that you provide directly to us by filling in forms on our Site (for example, to contact us, you must provide your name and e-mail address).
  • Information that you provide directly to us by signing up for an account on our Site (for example, to create a profile you must provide your e-mail address, password, and country of residence).
  • Information collected through your social media accounts if you choose to link such information, including, if applicable, information from your Facebook and Twitter accounts. We do not collect or store your social media account(s) username(s) or password(s). The social media website(s) processes your username and password directly through their website(s) and network(s), and as such, if you choose to connect your social media account(s) with our Site such connection is controlled by the terms of use of each individual social media website(s). See section below “Third Party Website Interaction” for more information.

§ Information provided to us when you communicate with us for any reason.

Your non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide you with relevant services and advertisements. We also record your IP addresses for security and monitoring purposes. This privacy policy in no way limits or restricts our collection of aggregate information or of non-personally identifiable information.

We may send updates, alerts, newsletters, or news regarding the Site to the email address you provided us. You may opt out from receiving such email by changing your "notification" setting in your profile settings on the Site.

From time to time, we, or our marketing partners, may sponsor a promotion, sweepstake, or contest on the Site. As a condition of participation, you may be required to provide personal information including name, email address, or home address, or to answer certain questions. We may also transfer your personal information to certain marketing partners from whom you have explicitly requested to receive information.

3. Social sharing of data

We allow other Site users to view material you make publicly available on the Site and through the Services, including:

  • Tattoos you have reviewed;
  • Any text, files, images, photos, videos, sounds, musical works, art work, designs, works of authorship, comments and other content you upload;
  • Ads, News Stories, listings, blogs and commentary you post.
  • Your user name and any other profile details you have elected to provide;
  • and any other material you make publicly available on the Site.

From time to time, we will also allow third parties access to Site data that is already publicly available through the Site and the Services, however, passwords, settings and other personally identifiable information will remain private.

4. Use of Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and provide us with Site visit information or Services use. We use cookies to help provide you with a personalized experience, but we do not share any personally identifiable information with third parties without your permission.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of Web browsers will instruct you on how to block your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We strongly recommend that you accept cookies from the Site because they enable you to take full advantage of the features of the Site.

Our advertising may be served by third party advertising companies which deliver a cookie to you so the ads you see can be tracked and ensure that you are not shown the same ad too many times. Since the third party advertising company only tags your computer with a number, they know nothing about who you are. We do not provide these third party advertising companies with any personally identifiable information. However, these companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to the Site and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

5. Sharing of Information Received

Respecting the privacy of personal information you share with us is an essential part of our business model. Where applicable, we may disclose your personal information to any affiliated business entities or third parties necessary to provide products and services to you. This includes, where applicable, our subsidiaries, our holding company and its other subsidiaries (if any), as well as third parties involved in the administration and operation of our products and services.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:

§ Where we sell any or all of our business and/or our assets to a third party;

§ Where we are legally required to disclose it;

§ When we are contractually obligated to disclose it; and

§ When we believe it is necessary to protect our rights, property or the safety of our employees, our users, or others (including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction).

6. Account REGISTRATION and Security

Following your initial registration of an account with TOTT (a “TOTT Account”) you may access your TOTT Account information and correct, revise or delete any information.

Your TOTT Account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security and you are responsible for preventing unauthorized access to your TOTT Account and your computer.

You agree and acknowledge, however, that we cannot guarantee the security of your account information and that certain factors, such as the unauthorized entry or use of our systems or hardware or software failures, may compromise the security of your TOTT Account and personal information at any time. We urge you to take steps to protect your personal information when you are on the Internet by changing your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure Internet browser.

If you have a TOTT Account, you can post reviews of businesses to the Service, which we then store, and participate in community based Services. Postings and activities with such Services are governed by our TOS. Please understand that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and the postings may appear on other third-party websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in a review, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address in such a review, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your review or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily provide using the Services, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information. We may sell your reviews to third-parties. The information presented in the community based Service areas reflects the views of the individual users and does not necessarily reflect our views or the views of any of our affiliates.
