Website Visitors

Text United collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Text United’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Text United’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Text United may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Text United also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Text United does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Text United website contains links to other sites that are outside of our control. These sites may have their own policy regarding privacy and it is in your interest to read their Privacy Policies.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Text United websites choose to interact with Text United in ways that require Text United to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Text United gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a free translator’s account to provide his/her name, email address, country of residence and his/her mother language. Those who engage in transactions with Text United – by purchasing a subscription plan, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Text United collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Text United. Text United does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. Visitors who registered on Text United websites can (by contacting support@textunited.com) ask for a copy of their personal information, ask for the information to be corrected or updated or ask us to remove their personal information from our records.

 

Protection of certain Personally-Identifying Information

Text United discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Text United’s behalf or to provide services available at Text United websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Text United websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Text United will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Text United discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Text United believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Text United, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Text United website and have supplied your email address, Text United may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Text United and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Text United takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
