Content Policy

We believe that everyone has a story to tell and that stories are meant to be shared. Bringing a story to life shouldn't require special skills and creating online can be simple, beautiful and fun. So we made Tackk, a ridiculously simple tool for creating and sharing stories online. We respect our users' ownership of and responsibility for the stories they choose to share. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression. In order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted on Tackk.com. The boundaries we've defined are those that both comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance the service as a whole. Click here for a more comprehensive (read: written by our attorneys) explanation of our Terms of Service.

Content Boundaries

Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the users. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check back here regularly. Also, please note that when applying the policies below, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

1. Adult Content:

We do not allow adult content on Tackk, including images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity.

2. Child safety:

We have a zero tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. Some examples of this include:

  • Child pornography: We will terminate the accounts of any user we find publishing or distributing child pornography.
  • We will also report that user to law enforcement.
  • Pedophilia: We do not allow content that encourages or promotes sexual attraction towards children. For example, do not create Tackks with galleries of images of children where the collection of images or text accompanying the images is sexually suggestive.

3. Hate Speech:

We want you to use Tackk to express your opinions, even very controversial ones. But, don't cross the line by publishing hate speech. By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a Tackk saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y.

4. Crude Content:

Don't post content just to be shocking or graphic. For example, collections of close-up images of gunshot wounds or accident scenes without additional context or commentary would violate this policy.

5. Violence:

Don't threaten other people on your Tackk. For example, don't post death threats against another person or group of people and don't post content encouraging your readers to take violent action against another person or group of people.

6. Copyright:

It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. More information about our copyright procedures can be found here. Also, please don't provide links to sites where your readers can obtain unauthorized downloads of other people's content.

7. Personal and confidential information:

It's not ok to publish another person's personal and confidential information. For example, don't post someone else's credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, unlisted phone numbers, and driver's license numbers. Also, please keep in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential under our policies.

8. Impersonating others:

Please don't mislead or confuse readers by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization when you don't. We're not saying you can't publish parody or satire - just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.

9. Illegal activities:

Don't use Tackk to engage in illegal activities or to promote dangerous and illegal activities. For example, don't author a Tackk encouraging people to drink and drive. Don't use Tackk to market, advertise or sell illegal items, substances or services. Otherwise, we may delete your content. Also, in serious cases such as those involving the abuse of children, we may report you to the appropriate authorities.

10. Spam:

Spam takes several forms in Tackk, all of which can result in deletion of your account or Tackk. Some examples include creating Tackks designed to drive traffic to your site or to move it up in search listings, posting comments on other people's Tackks just to promote your site or product, and scraping existing content from other sources for the primary purpose of generating revenue or other personal gains.

11. Malware and viruses:

Do not create Tackks that transmit viruses, cause pop-ups, attempt to install software without the reader's consent, or otherwise impact readers with malicious code. This is strictly forbidden on Tackk.

Enforcement of Tackk's Content Policy

If you encounter a Tackk that you believe violates our content policies, please report it to us using the 'Report' link located at the bottom right of each published Tackk. Our team reviews these flags for policy violations. If the Tackk does not violate our policies, we will not take any action against the Tackk or Tackk owner. If we find that a Tackk does violate our content policies, we take one or more of the following actions based on the severity of the violation:

  • Delete the Tackk
  • Disable the Tackker's access to his/her Tackk account
  • Report the user to law enforcement

Terms of Service

The purpose of this website, Tackk.com (the "Site"), owned and operated by Tackk Inc. ("Tackk"), an Ohio LLC, is to provide web publishing and web sharing services. Please read these terms of service ("Agreement") carefully before using the Site or any services provided on the Site (collectively, "Services"). By using or accessing the Services, you agree to become bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, do not use the Services. The Services are accessed by You ("Subscriber" or "You") under the following terms and conditions:

1. Access to the Services

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Tackk may offer to provide the Services, as described more fully on the Site, and which are selected by Subscriber, solely for Subscriber's own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. Services shall include, but not be limited to, any services Tackk performs for Subscriber, as well as the offering of any Content (as defined below) on the Site. Tackk may change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or Content. Tackk may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict Subscriber's access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. Tackk reserves the right, at its discretion, to modify these Terms of Service at any time by posting revised Terms of Service on the Site and by providing notice via e-mail, where possible, or on the Site. Subscriber shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Services by Subscriber following such modification constitutes Subscriber's acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified.

Subscriber certifies to Tackk that if Subscriber is an individual (i.e., not a corporate entity), Subscriber is at least 13 years of age. No one under the age of 13 may provide any personal information to or on Tackk (including, for example, a name, address, telephone number or email address). If you believe that a child has provided Tackk with personally identifiable information, please contact us at support@tackk.com. If Tackk becomes aware that a child under age 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information.

You agree that neither Tackk nor the Site will be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance or lack of availability of the Site, the service, your Subscriber Content or other Content. Tackk retains the right to create limits on use and storage in its sole discretion at any time with or without notice.

Subscriber shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to, access the Site or otherwise use the Services, including, without limitation, modems, hardware, software, and long distance or local telephone service. Subscriber shall be responsible for ensuring that such equipment or ancillary services are compatible with the Services.

2. Site Content

The Site may only be used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Tackk does not claim ownership of your content, but you give us your permission to host your Content on the Service. This permission exists only for as long as you continue to use the service or remain an account holder. The account holder represents or warrants that they are the owners of any Content they post and they are not posting any Content that infringes anyone's copyright or other intellectual property rights. If your Tackk is public, we reserve the right to use it for marketing or promotion purposes (e.g. as an example on our edu landing page). If your Tackk is marked as private, we will not use or share the content in any case. All trademarks, service marks, and trade names are proprietary to Tackk and/or third parties. Subscriber shall abide by all copyright notices, information, and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Services. The Site is protected by copyright as a collective work and/or compilation, pursuant to U.S. copyright laws, international conventions, and other copyright laws. Other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, Subscriber may not copy, modify, publish, transmit, upload, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as provided in this Section), create derivative works based on, distribute, perform, display, or in any way exploit, any of the Content, software, materials, or Services in whole or in part.

Subscriber may download or copy the Content, and other items displayed on the Site for download, for personal use only, provided that Subscriber maintains all copyright and other notices contained, and such use does not violate any intellectual property rights in the Content. Downloading, copying, or storing any Content for other than personal, noncommercial use is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from Tackk, or from the copyright holder identified in such Content's copyright notice. In the event You download software from the Site, the software, including any files, images incorporated in or generated by the software, and the data accompanying the software (collectively, the "Software") is licensed to You by Tackk or third party licensors for Your personal, noncommercial use, and no title to the Software shall be transferred to You. You may own the Subscriber Content on which the Software is recorded, but Tackk or third party licensors retain full and complete title to the Software and all intellectual property rights therein.

3. Subscriber Content

Subscriber shall own all Subscriber Content that Subscriber contributes to the Site, but hereby grants and agrees to grant Tackk a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right and license (with the right to sublicense), to use, copy, cache, publish, display, distribute, modify, create derivative works and store such Subscriber Content and to allow others to do so ("Content License") in order to provide the Services. On termination of Subscriber's membership to the Site and use of the Services, Tackk shall make all reasonable efforts to promptly remove from the Site and cease use of the Subscriber Content; however, Subscriber recognizes and agrees that caching of or references to the Subscriber Content may not be immediately removed. Subscriber warrants, represents and agrees Subscriber has the right to grant Tackk and the Site the rights set forth above. Subscriber represents, warrants and agrees that it will not contribute any Subscriber Content that (a) infringes, violates or otherwise interferes with any copyright or trademark of another party, (b) reveals any trade secret, unless Subscriber owns the trade secret or has the owner's permission to post it, (c) infringes any intellectual property right of another or the privacy or publicity rights of another (d) is libelous, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harassing, hateful, offensive or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party, (e) contains a virus, trojan horse, worm, time bomb or other computer programming routine or engine that is intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or information, or (f) remains posted after Subscriber has been notified that such Subscriber Content violates any of sections (a) to (e) of this sentence. Tackk reserves the right to remove any Subscriber Content from the Site, suspend or terminate Subscriber's right to use the Services at any time, or pursue any other remedy or relief available to Tackk and/or the Site under equity or law, for any reason (including, but not limited to, upon receipt of claims or allegations from third parties or authorities relating to such Subscriber Content or if Tackk is concerned that Subscriber may have breached the immediately preceding sentence), or for no reason at all.

4. Meetups

The Site offers a platform that allows users to organize and attend face-to-face meetings at restaurants, bars and other venues all over the world ("Meetups"). However, Tackk does not sponsor, oversee or in anyway control Meetups. You understand and agree that you organize and participate in Meetups at your own risk and Tackk does not bear any responsibility or liability for the actions of any Tackk users or any third parties who organize, attend or are otherwise involved in any Meetups. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, Tackk disclaims all liability, regardless of the form of action, for the acts or omissions of other Tackk users or any other third party and will not be liable for any damages, direct, indirect, incidental and/or consequential arising out of your organization or attendance at a Meetup or your interactions with any Tackk user or third party you meet at such events.

5. Restrictions

Subscriber is responsible for all of its activity in connection with the Services and accessing the Site. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity or any use of the Services or Content in violation of this Agreement may be grounds for termination of Subscriber's right to Services or to access the Site. Subscriber may not post or transmit, or cause to be posted or transmitted, any communication or solicitation designed or intended to obtain password, account, or private information from any Tackk user. Subscribers may sell goods, services or other items to other Subscribers through the Website. Many laws, regulations and policies, in a variety of jurisdictions, regulate the goods and services that may be bought and sold. Each Subscriber is responsible for complying with all applicable laws, regulations, or restrictions on items, services, or manner of sale, payment or exchange, that may apply to transactions in which they participate - including, but not limited to, those imposed by the state of Ohio, where Tackk physically resides. We encourage you to research the applicable laws and regulations that may apply to your usage of and activities on and relating to the Website.

Use of the Site or Services to violate the security of any computer network, crack passwords or security encryption codes, transfer or store illegal material including that are deemed threatening or obscene, or engage in any kind of illegal activity is expressly prohibited. Under no circumstances will Subscriber use the Site or the Service to (a) send unsolicited e-mails, bulk mail, spam or other materials to users of the Site or any other individual, (b) harass, threaten, stalk or abuse any person or party, including other users of the Site, (c) create a false identity or to impersonate another person, or (d) post any false, inaccurate or incomplete material or delete or revise any material that was not posted by You.

6. Warranty Disclaimer

Tackk has no special relationship with or fiduciary duty to Subscriber. Subscriber acknowledges that Tackk has no control over, and no duty to take any action regarding: which users gains access to the Site; which Content Subscriber accesses via the Site; what effects the Content may have on Subscriber; how Subscriber may interpret or use the Content; or what actions Subscriber may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content. Much of the Content of the Site is provided by and is the responsibility of the user or subscriber who posted the Content. Tackk does not monitor the Content of the Site and takes no responsibility for such Content. Subscriber releases Tackk from all liability for Subscriber having acquired or not acquired Content through the Site. The Site may contain, or direct Subscriber to sites containing, information that some people may find offensive or inappropriate. Tackk makes no representations concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Site, and Tackk will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Site. Although Tackk and the Site will make reasonable efforts to store and preserve the material residing on the Site, neither Tackk nor the Site is responsible or liable in any way for the failure to store, preserve or access Subscriber Content or other materials you transmit or archive on the Site. You are strongly urged to take measures to preserve copies of any data, material, content or information you post or upload on the Site. You are solely responsible for creating back-ups of your Subscriber Content.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to Subscriber.

7. Third Party Websites

Users of the Site may gain access from the Site to third party sites on the Internet through hypertext or other computer links on the Site. Third party sites are not within the supervision or control of Tackk or the Site. Unless explicitly otherwise provided, neither Tackk nor the Site make any representation or warranty whatsoever about any third party site that is linked to the Site, or endorse the products or services offered on such site. Tackk and the Site disclaim: (a) all responsibility and liability for content on third party websites and (b) any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) You might be requested to give any third party, and You hereby irrevocably waive any claim against the Site or Tackk with respect to such sites and third party content.

8. Registration And Security

As a condition to using Services, Subscriber may be required to register with Tackk and select a password and Tackk user ID. Subscriber shall provide Tackk with accurate, complete, and updated registration information, including Subscriber's e-mail address. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of Subscriber's account. Subscriber may not (a) select or use as a Tackk user ID a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; or (b) use as a Tackk user ID a name subject to any rights of a person other than Subscriber without appropriate authorization. Tackk reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel a Tackk user ID in its discretion. Subscriber shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Subscriber's Tackk password. Subscriber is solely responsible for any use of or action taken under Subscriber's password and accepts full responsibility for all activity conducted through Subscriber's account and agrees to and hereby releases the Site and Tackk from any and all liability concerning such activity. Subscriber agrees to notify Tackk immediately of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of Subscriber's account or password. The Site will take reasonable security precautions when using the internet, telephone or other means to transport data or other communications,but expressly disclaims any and all liability for the accessing of any such data communications by unauthorized persons or entities.

9. Indemnity

Subscriber will indemnify and hold Tackk, its directors, officers and employees, harmless, including costs and attorneys' fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of Subscriber's access to the Site, use of the Services, the violation of this Agreement by Subscriber, or the infringement by Subscriber, or any third party using the Subscriber's account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.

10. Limitation Of Liability

In no event shall Tackk, its directors, officers, shareholders, employees or members be liable with respect to the Site or the Services for (a) any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever; (b) damages for loss of use, profits, data, images, Subscriber Content or other intangibles; (c) damages for unauthorized use, nonperformance of the Site, errors or omissions; or (d) damages related to downloading or posting Content. Tackk's and the Site's collective liability under this agreement shall be limited to three hundred United States Dollars. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to Subscriber.

11. Fees And Payment

Purchases from Tackk

Some of the Services require payment of fees. All fees are stated in U.S. dollars. Subscriber shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Site in connection with such Services selected by Subscriber, and any related taxes or additional charges. All fees are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise on the Site. Subscriber represents to Tackk that Subscriber is the authorized account holder or an authorized user of the chosen method of payment used to pay for the paid aspects of the Services. All fee-based Services and virtual goods are provided "AS IS" with no warranties of any kind. Tackk may modify and/or eliminate such fee-based Services at its discretion. Subscriber understands and agrees that the payment for virtual goods grants Subscriber a limited license to use the virtual goods as specified on the Site. Tackk may change its prices at any time but will provide you reasonable notice of any such changes by posting the new prices on the Site and by sending you email notification. If you do not wish to pay the new prices, you may cancel the services prior to the change going into effect.

Purchases from Subscribers, Sponsors and/or Business Partners

You may purchase items from sponsors, business partners or other Subscribers found on or through the Site. Your transactions with such sponsors, business partners or Subscribers, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, warranties, or representations associated with such transactions, are solely between you and such sponsor, business partner and/or Subscriber. You agree that Tackk will not be liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any transactions with sponsors, business partners or Subscribers appearing on the Site, and all such transactions shall be at your sole risk.

Tackk may terminate or suspend any and all Services and access to the Site immediately, without prior notice or liability, if Subscriber breaches any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement. Upon termination of Subscriber's account, Subscriber's right to use the Services, access the Site, and any Content will immediately cease. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability. Termination of Your access to and use of the Site and the Services shall not relieve Subscriber of any obligations arising or accruing prior to such termination or limit any liability which Subscriber otherwise may have to Tackk or the Site, including without limitation any indemnification obligations contained herein.

13. Privacy

Please review our Privacy Policy, which governs the use of personal information on the Site and to which Subscriber agrees to be bound as a user of the Site.

14. Miscellaneous

This Agreement (including the Privacy Policy), as modified from time to time, constitutes the entire agreement between You, the Site and Tackk with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding the subject matter hereof. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Tackk shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Tackk's reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by Subscriber except with Tackk's prior written consent. Tackk may assign this Agreement in whole or in part at any time without Subscriber's consent. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and Subscriber does not have any authority of any kind to bind Tackk in any respect whatsoever.

Tackk has adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement with respect to the Site in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a copy of which is located at http://www.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf. The email address of Tackk's Designated Agent for copyright takedown notices ("Designated Agent") is listed below.

If You believe that content residing or accessible on the Site infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent at the address below:

  • Identification of the work or material being infringed.
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing, including its location, with sufficient detail so that Tackk is capable of finding and verifying its existence.

  • The Notifying Party's physical or electronic signature.

After the Designated Agent receives notification of an alleged infringement that meets all of the requirements above, Tackk shall:

  • Disable access to or remove material that it has a reasonable, good faith belief is copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any subscriber to the Site.
  • Tackk will then immediately notify the subscriber responsible for the allegedly infringing material (the Offending Subscriber) that it has removed or disabled access to the material.
  • Tackk reserves the right, at its discretion, to immediately terminate the account of any subscriber who is the subject of repeated takedown notices.

Filing Copyright Counterclaims

A subscriber who believes they are the wrongful subject of a copyright takedown notice, may file a counter notification with Tackk, by providing the following items in writing to the Designated Agent at the address below:

  • The specific URLs of material that Tackk has removed or to which Tackk has disabled access.
  • User's name, address, telephone number, and email address.

  • The following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled."
  • User's signature.

Upon receipt of a counterclaim, Tackk will forward it to the party who submitted the original copyright infringement claim. The original complainant will then have 10 days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If Tackk does not receive any such notification within 10 days, we may restore the material to the Site.

Tackk Designated Agent: Thank you!

Privacy Policy

Tackk Inc. (which does business as "Tackk") takes the private nature of your personal information very seriously. This Privacy Policy (which we adapted from a policy originally provided by Automattic (WordPress.com)) describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit and use the website available at Tackk.com (the "Website") and is made available under the Creative Commons Sharealike license. Please read this notice very carefully.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Tackk 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. Tackk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This website visitor information may include information collected using various types of technology, including "clear gifs" or "web beacons." This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Services, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Services, the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Services, and other information we may infer about you based on your use of the Services. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.

We may collect and share location and Bluetooth data for Interest-Based Advertising, allowing advertisers to infer interests and serve ads to users based on their activity and location data over time. Your mobile device may have settings that enable you to opt out using sharing location data, in which case advertisers may not be able to use in-app information collected from that device to infer your interests or serve ads to that device that are targeted based on your inferred interests. By using the Tackk, you consent to our collection and use of this location and Bluetooth data, subject to your device settings.

Tackk's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Tackk's visitors use its Website. From time to time, Tackk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website. Tackk does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering Of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with Tackk in ways that require Tackk to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Tackk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Tackk.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Tackk are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Tackk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Tackk. Tackk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Policy. 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Tackk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Website. For instance, Tackk may monitor Tackk.com pages to help identify spam. Tackk may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Tackk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Policy.

Protection Of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Except as disclosed in this Policy, Tackk discloses personally-identifying information only with your consent. Tackk shares information, including personally-identifying information, with its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Tackk's behalf or to provide services available at the Website, 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 the Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Tackk or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Tackk goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Tackk may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. In addition, we or a data partner with which we have engaged may collect and store a unique identifier matched to your device in order to deliver tailored content or advertising while you use applications or surf the internet, or to seek to identify you in a unique manner across other devices or browsers. In order to tailor content and advertising to you, we or a data partner may connect de-identified demographic or other data about you to data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) or to data collected from you (such as your device identifier or IP address). If we or our data partners connect information to your email address, we will share your email address only in a hashed, non-human readable form.

Tackk discloses information, including personally-identifying information, when required to do so by law, or when Tackk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Tackk, third parties or the public at large. Other than as described herein, we will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone.

If you are a registered user of the Tackk Website and have supplied your email address, Tackk 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 Tackk and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Tackk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. You should also be aware that if you submit information to "chat rooms," "forums" or "message boards" such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information.

Client Promotions And Programs

From time to time, Tackk hosts promotions and programs ("Client Programs") on behalf of its clients. As part of those services, Tackk may collect personally-identifying information for its clients by use of Tackk's content creation and sharing technology. Tackk collects such personally-identifying information solely for the use of its clients and the operation of the Client Programs. Such uses may include, notification of potential winners and marketing analysis. Tackk strictly limits access to all personally-identifying information within its organization, and data is never shared outside of the company for any reason whatsoever (with, of course, the exception of its clients, appropriate governmental or legal requests). Personally-identifying information collected from different Client Programs is never shared with anyone other than the client on whose behalf the information was collected. Personally identifiable information collected by Tackk on behalf of a client belongs to the client and Tackk and will be used in accordance with that particular client's privacy policy as well as this Privacy Policy. An individual's desire to "opt-out" of receiving marketing or other information from a client will be handled in accordance with a particular client's Privacy Policy. Tackk requires its clients, by contract, to use the data which Tackk collects on its behalf in accordance with generally accepted privacy standards for both offline and online data, which includes an "opt-out" method for individuals who have provided personally-identifying information. Ultimately, however, Tackk is not responsible for data collected on behalf of its clients when such data is in its client's possession. Where Tackk operates one Client Program on behalf of multiple clients, the use of the personally identifiable information by all of the companies involved will be clearly outlined by a Privacy Policy created for that Client Program.

Tackk "Opt-In" To Client Promotions

From time to time, Tackk and one of its clients will agree to allow Tackk to offer entrants to a Client Program an opportunity to "opt-in" to receiving marketing information from Tackk and its partners. In such cases, on the Tackk registration page, an Tackk "opt-in" question will appear clearly explaining to potential entrants that by checking the box they will be agreeing to share their personally personally-identifying with Tackk. When individuals "opt-in" to receive information from Tackk, they are agreeing to receive email and other notices from Tackk, including marketing messages, surveys, special offers and notices about other promotions. Such notices may come from Tackk itself, companies with whom Tackk has a business relationship and/or Tackk clients.

If you want to "opt-out" of receiving such notices from Tackk after you have "opted-in", or you wish to correct the information you have provided to Tackk, you may do so in one of two (2) ways:

  • Please send an email to . Please make sure to include the name of the promotion in the subject line and in the body of the email from which you wish to opt-out. Failure to provide this information may delay the processing of your request
  • Mail the details of your request to:
