Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

1. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Tupi Media 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. Tupi Media’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Tupi Media’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Tupi Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Tupi Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Tupi Media blogs/sites. Tupi Media only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

2. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Tupi Media’s websites choose to interact with Tupi Media in ways that require Tupi Media to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Tupi Media gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at tupimedia.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Tupi Media are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Tupi Media collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Tupi Media. Tupi Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

3. Aggregated Statistics

Tupi Media may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Tupi Media may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Tupi Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

4. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Tupi Media 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 Tupi Media’s behalf or to provide services available at Tupi Media’s 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 Tupi Media’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Tupi Media 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, Tupi Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Tupi Media believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Tupi Media, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Tupi Media website and have supplied your email address, Tupi Media 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 Tupi Media and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Tupi Media takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

5. Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Tupi Media uses cookies to help Tupi Media identify and track visitors, their usage of Tupi Media website, and their website access preferences. Tupi Media visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Tupi Media’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Tupi Media’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

6. Business Transfers

If Tupi Media, or substantially all its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Tupi Media goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Tupi Media may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

7. ADS

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Tupi Media and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

8. Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Tupi Media may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Tupi Media’ sole discretion. Tupi Media encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a wpbuffs.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with any third-party services or individuals directly. We only share data for the purposes of our own access and we do not authorize any third-party services to access your information except with our express permission for the purposes of assisting us in accessing your information.

How long we retain your data

If you complete a purchase on our website, WordPress automatically creates an account for you to store your order data and create your subscription. This account information is stored indefinitely to allow us to keep accurate records of any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If you fill out one of our contact forms, your data is stored in our website database and Digitalocean.com indefinitely. Additionally, this information is stored on our website backups in Dropbox for no longer than 30 days.

If you sign up for our mailing list, your data is stored in Mailchimp.com indefinitely, or until that data is determined to be no longer valid or necessary for us to contact you in accordance with our mailing list procedures.

What rights you have over your data

If you are a citizen of the EU/EEA and have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Any information entered into one of our contact forms is sent to us via email to Google Apps where we are able to read and respond to your message. This information is also stored in our website and sent to Dropbox as part of our website backups for no longer than 30 days.

Any information entered into a mailing list signup form is sent to Mailchimp.com in order for us to send you our mailing list content.

Any information entered into our live chat system is being entered directly into software provided by Tawk.to. At the end of your live chat conversation, this information is sent to us in Google Apps via email in order for us to contact you regarding your live chat conversation.

Any information entered into our checkout forms is saved on our website. Your first name and email address are then sent to Google Apps in order to add that data to our New Customers list at Mailchimp.com so that we can send you the information that you need to know about your new care plan with us. Payment information is never stored on our website and is added directly to Stripe.com where they securely store your credit card information and name in order to process your payments.

If you have or have had an active care plan with us, we process additional information on your behalf. To access your website for the purposes of website maintenance, your name, email address, website address, website login username, hosting login username and/or your business name may be stored in Teamwork.com which we use as our support desk and project management software. Passwords are not saved in cleartext format and are only saved in the LastPass software, which encrypts your passwords.

How we protect your data

We use two-factor authentications in systems where we store any sensitive data such as passwords. This helps us to protect your information from unauthorized access by requiring more than just a username and password to access that information.

What data breach procedures we have in place

The third-party services that we use to store data are equipped to monitor unauthorized access and share with us any known system breaches. These third-party services include Mailchimp.com, LastPass.com, Tawk.to, ManageWP.com, Stripe.com, Cloudways.com, Digitalocean.com, Ramnode.com, Amazon.com, Zoho.com, and Google.com.

Additionally, if, at any point, Tupi Media becomes aware of a data breach through one of the third parties listed above, or by our own measures, we will immediately contact all affected parties and take immediate action in accordance with the rules and regulations of the authority having jurisdiction.
