Through the combination of both internal and third party tracking code as well as cookies, we track the following categories of information when a visitor uses the Service:
(1) IP address,
(2) Domain servers,
(3) Type of computer used to access the Service,
(4) Types of web browsers
(collectively, "Anonymous Data").
Such data does not collect information that identifies you as an individual. NowTalk.com uses Anonymous Data to help enhance your experience of our services and to provide you with innovative services and features.
We may use third-parties to advertise on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
Some of our services require Users to provide information capable of identifying you as an individual ("Personally Identifiable Information"), this information may either be collected by us directly via our sign-up forms, or it may be collected by us indirectly by sourcing such data from any social networking website accounts (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, etc...) that the Users might use in order to sign-up for and login to the Services. Personally Identifiable Information includes:
"Contact Data" (such as your first and last name, physical street address, city, state, zip code, phone number and email address), and
"Questionnaire Data" (such as information about your personal life, habits, demographic information, public nickname to be used on the Service, etc...).
Please note that Contact Data and Anonymous Data are used to gather general statistics regarding our customers and visitors, in order to enhance your experience of our services. Questionnaire data is not used to identify you specifically or allow you to be contacted but to identify the general characteristics of our users. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users, number of unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.
Contact Data is used only to provide you with special information and promotions regarding our products, in connection with an order or to respond to a question or request.
We use Questionnaire Data to improve our Services and to generate your public user profile if you choose to have one.
NowTalk.com is an Inter-User Messaging Service
As part of the Service, you agree to allow other NowTalk.com users to contact you via the internal Service messaging service.
Further, you understand and agree that if you post information on any of our chat groups available via the Service, such information may be available to members of the Service and Service visitors. This includes any Questionnaire Data incorporated into your public user profile. Please use caution when deciding to disclose your personal information as we do not control who may participate in these interactive forums.
The Service currently allows Users to post messages in private chat groups and in public chat groups. Any information posted by Users in public chat groups will be available to all members of the Service, Service visitors and to the general public. Any information posted by Users in private chat groups shall only be available to Users who were invited to that private chat group. We cannot, however, control whether users who are present in private chat groups choose to copy/paste, take screenshots, or otherwise save the information posted in the private chat groups and then disseminate such information to the general public; as such, we are not responsible if this happens. It is the Users' responsibility to understand that any information and/or statements and/or content that they post to the internet can and probably will become available to the general public. Please use caution and common sense in deciding to disclose your personal information.
The Service also currently allows Users to post messages as "anonymous" users or to post messages in connection with the posting User's Contact Data. Certain chat groups may require all posts to be made in connection with a User's Contact Data, it is the User's responsibility to confirm whether the rules of any given chat group allow anonymous posting versus requiring Contact Data because any postings made by a User in connection with his or her Contact Data will become available to the general public (including that User's Contact Data) and cannot be removed.
