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.
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.
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.
