This is the Privacy Policy of the HitChecker Web site (the "Site") operated by Internet Merchants, LLC (together with our subsidiaries, "HitChecker", "HitChecker.com", HITCHECKER", "we", "us", "our", and terms of similar meaning) and our related products, services. It describes the information that we collect from you as part of the normal operation of our Site and mobile applications, and how we use and disclose this information.

By accepting the Privacy Policy in registration, by visiting and using the Site, or by installing and using the mobile application, you expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to our Terms of Use.

In this Privacy Policy, "User", "Subscriber", "Customer", and "Registered User" in the singular, plural, or proper, are un-registered or registered users of the Web site or the HitChecker service.

Your Information

We maintain a storage location containing personal information about you. We use this and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the Site, to provide to you the services offered by the Site; resolve service and billing issues; troubleshoot problems; bill any amounts due from you; measure consumer interest in our products and services, inform you about offers, products, services, events and updates; deliver information to you that, in some cases, is relevant to your interests; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our terms of use; provide you with system or administrative messages, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. We may use a name, email address, or other information to contact our Users.

We may also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze Site usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize the Site's content, layout, and services.

Information We Collect

Personal information is primarily collected from you in order to provide a better user experience and quality services.

In general, you can browse the Site without revealing any personal information. Once you become a Subscriber or have installed our mobile application, we require you to provide various personal and billing information as indicated on the relevant forms on the Site, and you are no longer anonymous to us.

You always have the option to not provide personal information by not accessing the Site or choosing not to become a Subscriber, by not using the particular feature of the Site for which the information is being collected, or by not installing our mobile application.

If you are a Subscriber, we collect payment information for billing purposes. And if you are a Subscriber who wishes to pay amounts on a recurring basis, we collect and store your payment information for payment purposes.

We track certain information about you based upon your use of our Site. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our Site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our Site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use "cookies" to assist us in providing our services such as allowing you to enter your login credentials less frequently. We link the information we store in our cookies to personally identifiable information you submit when you create a HitChecker account.

You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Service.

Disclosure of Information

The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our services:

We use payment information (such as PayPal email addresses and credit card information) to process payments for the Service. Financial institutions (like PayPal) have the sole and complete responsibility for the storage of credit card and payment information.

We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries, and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Site, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Site. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies. We take care to use only service providers that we believe are reputable and capable of handling confidential information.

HitChecker may disclose your personal information (a) to any governmental authority as part of an investigation to determine our compliance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation (including privacy laws, rules, and regulations), (b) in response to a court order, subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful judicial or administrative proceeding, (c) as otherwise required under any applicable law, rule, or regulation, and (d) in good faith, to protect or defend the rights or property of HitChecker and other users.

Security

HitChecker strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any information, such as credit card number and billing information, you send to us electronically. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. Once HitChecker receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

Other Information Collectors

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties through the Site, different rules may apply to their use, collection and disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. Since we do not control the information use, collection or disclosure policies of third parties, you are subject to their privacy policies.

Updating Your Personal Information

To review and update your personal information to ensure it is accurate, you may login into your account to make the changes, or you may contact us.

Privacy Statement Changes

We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
