INFORMATION COLLECTED BY THE SERVICE
Text2VIP collects information about you when you first activate the Service and as you continue to use the Service.
Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") via the Service. PII is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity, and includes your name, mobile phone number, email address, and postal address. We may also ask you to select a user ID and password.
Under certain circumstances, we may send you emails and SMS messages when we feel we have an important announcement to share regarding your Service. Please note that your carrier may charge you to receive messages via SMS.
The Service may collect your location information automatically from a number of sources: from the GPS in your wireless device, from your mobile carrier's network, from a WiFi access point, or from a combination of all of the above. We ask your permission prior to accessing your location information. In order to provide the best user experience, we will ask to access your current location periodically in order to deliver content and promotions that are tailored to your current location. However, we only use your most recent location and do not store a history of your various locations over time.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non-PII") in connection with the Service. Non-PII is information that cannot by itself be used to identify or locate a particular person or entity. The Non-PII we collect automatically includes the type of wireless device you use to access the Service, and the name of your wireless carrier. We also keep track of the way you interact with the Service, including the date and time you use the Service, your responses to marketing messages you receive via the Service, and the content and advertisements you viewed while using the Service. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, as well as to help us deliver personalized and relevant content and promotions to you via the Service.
The Service also provides you with an option to provide information about your preferences across several categories (e.g., Sports, Travel, Entertainment, etc.) This information is used to help our advertising partners provide you with relevant and personalized content, information, and promotional offers via the Service.
The Non-PII collected by the Service may be shared with the specific brand that has sponsored the mobile application that you have opted-in to. This information may also be aggregated and shared with third parties for purposes of analyzing demographics and preferences across many mobile users.
THE TEXT2VIP CORPORATE WEBSITE
The Text2VIP Website (the "Website") is designed for our clients and prospective clients, which are generally businesses.

Once collected, we will store your Personally Identifiable Information for 60 days for record keeping purposes. Information will then be deleted using a secure delete software package.

PRIVACY INFORMATION FOR BOTH THE WEBSITE AND THE SERVICE
When Text2VIP Discloses Information to Third-Parties
We provide your PII and other information collected when you register for the Service as well as your location information and other Non-PII collected by the Service to the specific brand entity related to the Text2VIP application that is being used. We don't transfer information to third parties that are not affiliated with the branded application, unless we obtain your permission first. If we have your permission, we may provide your location information to third-party partners that integrate with the Service and help make the Service better. For example, we may use a mapping or navigation service provided by one of our partners.
We provide Non-PII to interested third parties to assist those parties in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality provided by Text2VIP. We may aggregate information about the way you and others use the Service, and share that information with our advertising partners, potential partners and the press.
In the event that Text2VIP is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected 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 information is treated, transferred, or used. You will be notified by us of any such change in ownership or control of your PII.
Your Privacy Choices
You may update, correct, or delete the information you've provided via the Service at any time by sending an email to [email protected]
You may also update information you've provided via the Website by emailing us at [email protected]
, and we will act upon your request in a reasonable time. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
Our Commitment to Data Security
The security of your information is important to us, including but not limited to the PII collected via the Service and the Website. We have implemented reasonable security measures to protect the information in our care, both during transmission and once we receive it. This includes, but is not limited to the use of firewalls and encryption. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is important. For that reason, Text2VIP does not knowingly collect PII from persons under 12 years-of-age. IF YOU ARE UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICE OR PROVIDE PII ON THIS WEBSITE. If Text2VIP learns that PII has been collected from a person under the age of 12 via either the Website or Service, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

Age Requirements For Certain Mobile Applications
Text2VIP provides mobile application services to multiple brand entities. In some cases, the mobile application may be associated with a brand or content that requires the user to be 18 year-of-age or older. Examples of this include mobile applications associated with casinos, alcoholic beverages, adult content, etc. If you are accessing an application that has an age requirement, your use of the application is your certification that you are of the legal age. If you are not old enough to access the application, you must refrain from accessing the application.
