Information Collection and Use
We collect and use your information to provide our Services and improve them over time.

We do not collect personally-identifiable information about you unless you provide us with such information via registration as a member ("Member"), participation in Member services or features, or otherwise. We may require you to provide additional personal information when utilizing Member services or features, such as your phone number, billing, shipping and other credit card processing information. Any credit card payments made by you will be processed by a third-party payment processor. We do not permanently store credit card information either on or outside the Website. We may automatically record your IP address and use it to help diagnose problems with our server, administer and improve our Website, and gather broad demographic information about our Members. We use your information to personalize your experience, analyse usage, respond to inquiries from you, notify you about new features and special promotions, fulfil your orders, provide customer service, and to support your use of the Website and its features (including in connection with Website maintenance, backup and analysis). We may collect and report to third parties (such as content and service providers) information about our Member demographics, we may provide that general information to a content or service provider.

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a NewTribeZ account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, 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. You may customize your account with information such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS messages or your address book so that we can help you find NewTribeZ users you know. 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.

Posts and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information 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 messages you Tweet and the metadata provided with Posts, such as when you Post, but also the lists you create, the people you are friends with, the Posts you mark as favourites and many other bits of information. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public Posts are searchable by many search engines. You should be careful about all information that will be made public by NewTribeZ, not just your Posts.

What you say on NewTribeZ may be viewed all around the world instantly.

Location Information: You may choose to note your location in your Posts and in your NewTribeZ profile. If you turn on Tweeting with your location, we may also save exact coordinates to help improve our service. You can control your location information settings in your account settings.

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.

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.

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.
