Information Collection and Use
Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a ScribeSlice account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration.
Additional Information: You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, or a picture. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may unsubscribe from these messages by following the instructions contained within the messages or the instructions on our web site. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Writing, Following, Lists and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you write and share content with the world. Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the writing you write and the metadata provided with your writing, such as when you created the writing, but also the lists you create, the writing you follow and many other bits of information. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public writing is searchable by many search engines. You should be careful about all information that will be made public by ScribeSlice, not just your writing.
Location Information: You may choose to note your location in your ScribeSlice profile.
Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.
Links: ScribeSlice may keep track of how you interact with links in writing across our Services including third party clients by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, including advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
Cookies: Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. ScribeSlice may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.
Third Party Services: ScribeSlice uses a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Services and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP request.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client to access your ScribeSlice account.
Law and Harm: We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect ScribeSlice's rights or property.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your public writing or the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did).
Modifying Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools to access or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account.
Our Policy Towards Children
Our Services are not directed to people under 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we may take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.
