If you have any questions about this Policy or our privacy practices, please contact us at [email protected].
What does this Policy cover?
This Policy describes our information collection, storage and disclosure practices regarding how we collect and use personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). If you are a California resident, the “Your California Privacy Rights” section also applies to you.
This Policy only applies to the processing of your Personal Information by us as a data controller, meaning where we process your Personal Information for our purposes.
What isn’t covered by this Policy?
This Policy does not apply to any processing of your Personal Information by Scriber as a data processor on behalf of a third party provider or a Creator. Creators and Providers have their own privacy practices governing their use of Personal Information, outlined in their own third-party terms.
First, please note that this Policy does not apply to any Personal Information you share with Creators directly. For information about Personal Information we share with Creators, see “When do you share information with other parties?” below.
We work with a number of trusted partners who perform vital functions for the Services, including processing payments. These third party providers (“Providers”) allow us to provide the Services to you. Providers include, for example, our Payment Processor, Stripe Inc. Some Providers collect your Personal Information directly, such as Stripe Inc. Others may receive some of your Personal Information when we share it with them.
This Policy only applies to Personal Information we share with Providers, not to Personal Information they may collect directly from you. For information about Personal Information we share with Providers, see “When do you share information with other parties?” below.
When does this Policy apply, and how can I get a copy?
You receive a copy of this Policy when you first subscribe to content from third-party content creators (“Creators”) through the Services. You can always obtain a fresh copy by texting “PRIV” to the phone number through which you access Scriber. Your carrier may charge messaging rates to any text messages you exchange with us.
Will Scriber change this Policy?
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. In the event we make changes to this Policy, such policy will be re-posted in the “Privacy” section of our Services with the date such modifications were made indicated on the top of the page or we may contact you to inform you about the revisions with a link to the revised Policy. All changes are effective on the “Last Updated” listed at the top of this page and will apply to all information that we have about you. Your continued use of the Services after any change is posted indicates your acceptance of the changes and your continued consent to our processing of your Personal Information. If at any point you do not agree to any portion of this Policy then in effect, you should immediately stop using the Services. Because this Policy contains legal obligations, we encourage you to review this Policy carefully. If you have any questions concerning this Policy or our information collection, storage and disclosure practices, please contact us at [email protected].
What information does Scriber collect?
Scriber collects Personal Information about you when you subscribe to use the Services or provide it to us directly. This may include your name, phone number, email address and physical address. Personal Information is collected by us to provide you with the Services, including when you provide your telephone number to fulfill your Subscriptions, including delivery of links to content through text messages.
What does Scriber use this information for?
We and our third-party providers use Personal Information to: (i) authenticate your identity, your Subscriptions and ensure your access to Posts; (ii) ensure payment for your Subscriptions; (iii) personalize the Services for you; (iv) enable Creators to correspond with you via the Services; (v) guard against fraud and misuse of the Services; and (vi) communicate with you, such as to answers your questions or make promotional offers or surveys available to you.
Finally, as described in our Terms of Service, Posts that you receive as part of your Subscriptions are personal to you, including any Posts you receive as URL links. Posts and URL links may contain data associated with your account. For example, personal URL links contain data associated with your sign-up method – usually your cell phone number. Sharing your personal Posts or URL links violates the Agreement and may disclose your personal information to recipients of your Posts or URL Links.
When do you share information with other parties?
In order to fulfill your Subscriptions, we share your sign-up contact method (cell phone number and/or your email address) with Creators so that they can communicate directly with you. We do not share any other Personal Information with Creators as a matter of course. Additionally, our agreements with Creators limit their use of Personal Information to those necessary to fulfilling Subscriptions or as otherwise permitted by the Services. For example, we allow Creators to use our Services to send messages targeted to subscribers within particular areas based upon the area code of a subscriber’s cell phone number.
We may remove Creators from the Services if we determine that they misuse Personal Information. Please contact us at [email protected] if you suspect a Creator is misusing Personal Information.
Creators are responsible for the content that they provide you and are responsible for any Personal Information that you provide directly to them or that they receive from us. Scriber does not sell, trade or license Personal Information for marketing purposes or with any entity or individual with whom you do not have a direct relationship, such as a Creator.
We share information as necessary to enable aspects of the Services provided by Providers, such as hosting, security, content-delivery, customer-support, analytics and computing services.
We do not share Personal Information with Providers unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including providing the Services to you. However, in many cases, the information that must share includes Personal Information. For example, in order to enable messaging to mobile phone numbers, we must share those numbers with our messaging Providers.
We may share your Personal Information with law enforcement or other government agencies as required by law or for the purposes of limiting copyright infringement or fraud. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or comply with legal process. We further reserve the right to disclose any of your Personal Information that we believe, in good faith, appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government bodies, to protect the security or integrity of the Services, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of ourselves or other people.
We may share your Personal Information in connection with a corporate reorganization or transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the event of bankruptcy.
Scriber is only available to residents of the United States with a U.S. phone number. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone located outside the U.S.
