LINKTEXTING PRIVACY POLICY

Linktexting.com, LLC (“Linktexting”) respects the privacy of our customers, our customers’ end users and other third parties (collectively, “you”). Linktexting works hard to ensure Linktexting’s website and services are safe and secure for our customers, our customers’ end users and other third parties. This privacy policy describes how Linktexting collects and uses the personal information provided by you or collected through one of Linktexting’s widgets, Smart App Badges and Smart Prompts from our customers’ end users. By using our Services, you agree and accept the policies and practices outlined in this Privacy Policy. Further, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information as provided in this Privacy Policy.

1. Linktexting Services

The Linktexting services allow Linktexting customers to embed Linktexting’s widgets, Smart App Badges or Smart Prompts on a customer’s website or use the Linktexting APIs to build their own widget (collectively, “Services”). The widgets, Smart App Badges and Smart Prompts enable a customer’s end users of its website to send a text message to themselves which prompts the end users to download the customer’s mobile application.

2. What information we collect from you

Linktexting collects information you enter on our website, linktexting.com, or that you give us in any other way. This may include personally identifiable information such as your email address, first and last name, phone number, mobile number and billing information (including your billing address, credit card number, cardholder name, authentication code and credit card expiration date) (collectively, “personal information”).


In order for Linktexting to provide you with the Services, Linktexting receives and stores your end user’s mobile telephone number, which is voluntarily provided by your end user through the Linktexting Services (“End User Information”). Linktexting will not share the End User Information with you nor will Linktexting share this information with any third party. It is your sole responsibility to acquire proper permission to collect the End User Information and send text messages and/or SMS messages to your end users, including notifying the end users that standard data and messaging rates may apply to the receipt of the text message/SMS message.


Linktexting collects session data such as your IP address and web browser software as well as information about your activity on our website. Linktexting does not use cookies or other tracking technology on its website or through the Services.

3. How we use your information

Linktexting uses the information it collects to provide the Services only, including in order to allow you to register and maintain an account with Linktexting, to communicate with you about your account and the Services and to troubleshoot any issues with the Linktexting website or Services. Linktexting does not share the information it collects, including End User Information with any unaffiliated third party.

4. When Linktexting discloses your information

General. Linktexting does not provide your personally identifiable information or any other information you provide to Linktexting to any third parties. If you are an end user of a Linktexting customer and you submit your mobile telephone number through Linktexting’s Services, then you consent to the receipt of a text message from Linktexting. You understand that standard text messaging fees and data rates may apply.  However, Linktexting does not disclose your mobile telephone number to any other third parties (including the customer that embedded Linktexting’s Services on the customer’s website) or use this information for any other purpose other than sending you a text message reminding you to download a Linktexting’s customer’s mobile application.


Legal Requests and Comply with State and Federal Laws. Linktexting may release personal information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or to respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.


Linktexting also reserves the right to disclose personal information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Linktexting believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce Linktexting’s Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of Linktexting’s website or Services, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Linktexting, its customers or others.


In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy. In the event that Linktexting is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal or non-personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
