Information we collect and how we use it
We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:
- Information you provide - When you sign up for services on FoldedNote that require registration, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). For certain services, we require payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. We may combine the information you submit under your account with information from other FoldedNote services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services. For certain services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information.
- Notes & Messages - When you send notes and messages through FoldedNote, we retain that information for the purposes of recording and delivering your note. Some information, including the time, content, ratings, response and parties involved in each interaction may be stored beyond the period in which they are send and read.
FoldedNote does not share personal information with other companies or individuals outside of FoldedNote in the following limited circumstances:
- We have your consent. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
- We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of FoldedNote, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. Most information is held in an encrypted format to guard against damage related to unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
