When you useJaxtrSMS you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us, and Service use information collected by us as you interact with our Service. When you register with JaxtrSMS, you provide us with certain personal information such as your telephone number, your first name and last name, your gender, language and any other personal or preference information that you provide us. JaxtrSMS collects user submitted information to provide the Service, authenticate users, and send notifications relating to the Service. By providing JaxtrSMS your telephone number and e-mail address you consent to our using the service to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use the Service to send you other messages, such as updates, user communications, newsletters, changes to features of the Service, or JaxtrSMS offers. JaxtrSMS reserves the right to send you notice about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email and phone/SMS notifications. When you use JaxtrSMS to send or receive SMS messages, we may collect and maintain information associated with those messages, such as phone number, the wireless carrier associated with the phone number, the content of the message, and the date and time of the transaction. We also reserve the right to collect information, such as telephone numbers and e-mail addresses stored in the Address book of your phone.
Please note that JaxtrSMS may allow third party advertisers that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to access the above information. JaxtrSMS provides all members with a Contact page that is publicly viewable by default. JaxtrSMS displays certain information, including members' pictures, country, age range, names, and friends' names and pictures on the Service in order to facilitate user interaction. You may control and change the information displayed on your Contact page from your Account page. Note that your private phone number and email address is hidden from other users by default. To facilitate searching and finding interesting content on the Service, JaxtrSMS may allow users to search for other members using first and last name, phone number, email address, and other standard search strategies. Even if you choose the "private" setting for your Contact page to prevent others from viewing it, your name, country and picture thumbnail may be available in search results and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines.
JaxtrSMS may also collect information about you from other sources, such as public profiles, newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the JaxtrSMS Service through the operation of the service (e.g., tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.
JaxtrSMS will not share your personally identifiable information with others except in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is reasonably necessary to offer the Service, legally required or, permitted by you. For example, we may provide information to service providers and termination partners to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the Service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out updates about JaxtrSMS, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the JaxtrSMS-specified purposes. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of JaxtrSMS (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers and termination partners). We save the information gathered through your use of the Service. We collect this information so that we can provide you our services and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior communications or easily search it. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members
JaxtrSMS members can invite other people to join the service by sending invitation emails or texts via our automated invitation system. JaxtrSMS stores the email addresses and telephone numbers that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the contacts list of the member sending the invitations, and also to send reminders of the invitations. JaxtrSMS does not sell these email addresses and telephone numbers or use them to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations from JaxtrSMS may contact JaxtrSMS to request that no more invitations be sent to them from a particular member or from all members. JaxtrSMS members may also store contact information of people they know in their internal JaxtrSMS address book and may also choose to send invitations and other communications to those addresses.
Your Communications on JaxtrSMS
You may use JaxtrSMS to send or receive texts or SMS or initiate or receive phone calls or email which are partly or fully handled via JaxtrSMS telecommunications or messaging partners. Any information which you may communicate during such interactions, including any personal information, may be handled by JaxtrSMS telecommunications or messaging partners and shall not be deemed private. JaxtrSMS cannot guarantee the security of information that you disclose or communicate in such text messages and phone calls and you do so at your own risk. JaxtrSMS discloses your telephone number to its telecommunications or messaging partners in order to provide the Service. We may permit third party advertisers to sponsor certain features of JaxtrSMS, such as text messaging. When a third party sponsors a JaxtrSMS feature, advertisements for or by that sponsor may appear in connection with your communications over the Service that use that feature. JaxtrSMS automatically creates archives of your messages and call history on the Service. To the extent not otherwise required by law, we will purge your archives after a reasonable period of time.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
JaxtrSMS logs non-personally identifiable information such as IP address, time zone, profile information, aggregate user data, and location information, from users and visitors to the site. Such data are used to manage the Service, track usage and improve the user experience. This non-personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users. User IP addresses and phone numbers are also recorded for security and monitoring purposes. No personally identifiable information from your JaxtrSMS account is collected using these clear gifs. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and makeJaxtrSMS better for our users. JaxtrSMS may use certain information about you without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing advertisements and promotions.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post or communicate information in public areas of the JaxtrSMS Service, that information can be accessed and stored by the public, and may in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.
Correcting/Updating or Removing Information
JaxtrSMS members may modify or update their personal account information at any time by logging into their account and accessing the Account page. Where you make use of the communication features of the Service to share information with others on JaxtrSMS, however, (e.g., sending a text message to another user) you generally cannot remove such communications.
Third Party Advertising
JaxtrSMS member accounts are secured by member-accessedphone clients. JaxtrSMS takes reasonable precautions to insure that member account information is kept private and to protect member information that is stored within our database. We restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information or any other information you transmit to JaxtrSMS and you do so at your own risk. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. For any additional information about the security measures we use on JaxtrSMS, please contact us in writing by visiting our Support site.
