We really value your privacy. We won’t do anything with your personal information that you don’t explicitly ask us to. It’s that simple.
When you create an account with PaperKarma, your name, email and home (or business) addresses are collected. Your email is used for signing in and for receiving newsletter communications and communications related to the status of your junk mail “unsubscribe” requests. Your email is not in any way shared with anyone.
Images that you upload are kept on our servers. They are used to identify the publication/mail/etc. The images are associated with your account and are shared with the original sender to help unsubscribe you.
We request you add a phone number because certain mailers require it for unsubscribing. It is optional and rarely used.
You may choose to link your Facebook or Twitter account for posting your success stories – at your discretion, of course.
We may also ask for demographic information, such as birthday or gender. These are fully controlled by you, and will not be shared.
If you visit our website, your web browser automatically sends us (and we may retain) information such as the:
We will use this information as aggregate data to help us maintain this site, e.g., to determine the number of visitors to different sections of our site, to ensure the site is working properly, and to help us make our site more accessible and useful.
We will not use this information to identify individuals, except for site security or law enforcement purposes. We will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information.
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.
This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an inquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network.
We may use your Personal Information (i.e. email) to contact you with newsletters, marketing, or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions in any email we send.
We reserve the right to retain all information provided for as long as the information is needed.
Your Email and Home/Business addresses are kept on our servers which reside on Amazon’s EC2 cloud service. These are limited access data-centers. Your data are secured via Firewall and all communication goes through a SSL connection.
PaperKarma® does not sell, trade, or rent your information to third parties. We only share your information for the purposes of fulfilling your request to unsubscribe with the original sender (who generally has your information already). The shared information includes the uploaded image, your name, and your physical address. Certain companies require a phone number (rare).
You can modify the name and the address associated with your account at any time via the app.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for account deletion.
