Our Privacy Policy has been developed and implemented to inform you: (1) of the information we collect from you; (2) how we collect that information; and (3) what we do with that information. By using or accessing BandagedEar.com, you are accepting the practices outlined in this document.

No information from children under age 13. If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register or provide any personal information about yourself to us.

We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe internet use practices. Materials to help parents talk to their children about safe internet use can be found on this help page.

2. Information We Receive

Under no circumstances do we rent, trade or share your e-mail address with any other company, except our order fulfillment companies. We use your personal information for the purpose of processing and keeping you informed of your order and of informing you, from time to time, of information about new features, new services and special offers by us, by our or suppliers, order fulfillment companies or marketing partners.

Information you provide to us:

Information About Yourself. During the registration process we give you the opportunity to connect with your friends, schools, and employers. You will also be able to add a picture of yourself. In some cases we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide specific services to you. Once you register you can provide other information about yourself, including personal information about yourself.

Content. One of the primary reasons people use BandagedEar.com is to share content with others. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on BandagedEar.com plus do not submit it to us.

Transactional Information. The security of orders placed with BandagedEar.com is our highest priority. All data entered by our customers is protected using standard industry encryption, or secure server software, commonly known as SSL or "Secure Socket Layer" encryption. And while we may retain the details of transactions or payments you make on BandagedEar.com, we do not retain your critical credit card information. Instead we use secure APIs involving ‘tokens’, so we are never actually in possession of your payment information, eliminating the possibility your credit card information could be stolen.

Information we collect:

Site activity information. We keep track of some of the actions you take on BandagedEar.com, such as commenting or rating an image. In some cases you are also taking an action when you provide information or content to us. For example, if you take a survey, in addition to storing the actual answers you provided, we might log the fact that you shared it.

Access Device and Browser Information. When you access BandagedEar.com from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.

Cookie Information. We use "cookies" (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make BandagedEar.com easier to use, to make our advertising better, and to protect both you and BandagedEar.com. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to BandagedEar.com. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into BandagedEar.com, and to know when you are interacting with BandagedEar.com Platform applications and websites, our widgets and Share buttons, and our advertisements. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use BandagedEar.com.

Information we receive from third parties:

Facebook Platform. Whenever you connect with BandagedEar.com, using your Facebook credentials, we receive information about actions you take. In some cases, in order to personalize the process of connecting, we may receive a limited amount of information even before you connect with the application or website.

3. Sharing information on BandagedEar.com.

This section explains how your privacy settings work, and how your information is shared on BandagedEar.com.

Name and Profile Picture. BandagedEar.com is designed to make it easy for you to find and connect with others. For this reason, your name and profile picture do not have privacy settings. If you are uncomfortable with sharing your profile picture, you should delete it (or not add one).

Personal and Contact Information. Your contact information settings control (available when customizing your privacy settings) who can contact you on BandagedEar.com, and who can see your contact information. Remember that none of this information is required except for your email address, and you do not have to share your email address with anyone.

Other. Here are some other things to remember:

  1. Some of the content you share and the actions you take will show up on your friends’ home pages and other pages they visit.

  2. Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your privacy settings, or it was copied or stored by other users.

  3. You understand that information might be reshared or copied by other users.

  4. Certain types of communications that you send to other users cannot be removed, such as messages.

  5. When you post information on another user’s profile or comment on another user’s post, that information will be subject to the other user’s privacy settings.

  6. If you use an external source to publish information to BandagedEar.com (such as a mobile application or a Connect site), you should check the privacy setting for that post, as it is set by that external source.

“Everyone” Information. Information set to “everyone” is publicly available information, just like your name, profile picture, and connections. Such information may, for example, be accessed by everyone on the Internet (including people not logged into BandagedEar.com), be indexed by third party search engines, and be imported, exported, distributed, and redistributed by us and others without privacy limitations. Such information may also be associated with you, including your name and profile picture, such as on public search engines and when you visit other sites on the internet. The default privacy setting for certain types of information you post on BandagedEar.com is set to “everyone.” You can review and change the default settings in your privacy settings.

Minors. We reserve the right to add special protections for minors (such as to provide them with an age-appropriate experience) and place restrictions on the ability of adults to share and connect with minors, recognizing this may provide minors a more limited experience on BandagedEar.com.

4. Facebook Information You Share With Us.

When you connect with an application or website, such as BandagedEar.com, it will have access to General Information about you. The term ‘General Information’ includes your and your friends’ names, profile pictures, gender, user IDs, connections, and any content shared using the Everyone privacy setting. It may also make information about the location of your computer or access device and your age available to applications and websites in order to help them implement appropriate security measures and control the distribution of age-appropriate content. If the application or website wants to access any other data, it will have to ask for your permission.

Facebook gives you tools to control how your information is shared with applications and websites that use Platform. For example, you can block all platform applications and websites completely or block specific applications from accessing your information by visiting your Applications and Websites privacy setting or the specific application’s “About” page. You can also use your privacy settings to limit which of your information is available to “everyone”. You should always review the policies of third party applications and websites to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use information you share with them.

When your friends use BandagedEar.com. If your friend connects with our application or website, it will be able to access your name, profile picture, gender, user ID, and information you have shared with “everyone.” It will also be able to access your connections, except it will not be able to access your friend list. If you have already connected with (or have a separate account with) that website or application, it may also be able to connect you with your friend on that application or website. If the application or website wants to access any of your other content or information (including your friend list), it will have to obtain specific permission from your friend. If your friend grants specific permission to the application or website, it will generally only be able to access content and information about you that your friend can access. In addition, it will only be allowed to use that content and information in connection with that friend. For example, if a friend gives an application access to a photo you only shared with your friends, that application could allow your friend to view or print the photo, but it cannot show that photo to anyone else.

Facebook provides you with a number of tools to control how your information is shared when your friend connects with an application or website. For example, you can use your Application and Websites privacy setting to limit some of the information your friends can make available to applications and websites. You can block all platform applications and websites completely or block particular applications or websites from accessing your information. You can use your privacy settings to limit which friends can access your information, or limit which of your information is available to “everyone.” You can also disconnect from a friend if you are uncomfortable with how they are using your information.

6. How We Share Information

BandagedEar.com is about sharing information with others — friends and people in your communities — while providing you with privacy settings that you can use to restrict other users from accessing some of your information. We share your information with third parties when we believe the sharing is permitted by you, reasonably necessary to offer our services, or when legally required to do so. For example:

To give search engines access to publicly available information. We generally limit search engines’ access to our site. We may allow them to access information set to the “everyone” setting (along with your name and profile picture) and your profile information that is visible to everyone. You can change the visibility of some of your profile information using the customize section of your privacy settings. You can also prevent search engines from indexing your profile using the Applications and Websites privacy setting.

To help improve or promote our service. Sometimes we share aggregated information with third parties to help improve or promote our service. But we only do so in such a way that no individual user can be identified or linked to any specific action or information.

To respond to legal requests and prevent harm. We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law.

We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.

Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control. If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that the service can continue to operate. In such a case, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

8. How We Protect Information

We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers and passwords), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also use automated and social measures to enhance security, such as analyzing account behavior for fraudulent or otherwise anomalous behavior, may limit use of site features in response to possible signs of abuse, may remove inappropriate content or links to illegal content, and may suspend or disable accounts for violations of our TOS.

Risks inherent in sharing information. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on BandagedEar.com will not become publicly available.
