Twitplace Privacy

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for twitplace Malaysia and twitplace.com (including any other applications collectively referred to as the “twitplace Malaysia”), and to any services that display this notice.

The twitplace Malaysia Services may contain links to other websites for your convenience and information. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those sites.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GATHER ABOUT YOU?

The information gathered when you interact with the twitplace Malaysia falls into two categories: 1) Personal information, which includes personal information you supply when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, register for one of our sites, enter a contest or provide your email address and 2) Non-personal information collected through technology, which includes tracking information collected by us as well as third parties.

Personal Information That You Give Us

Registration Information

You may choose to log in, create an account or enhance your profile at twitplace Malaysia through the Facebook Connect feature on twitplace Malaysia. By doing this, you are asking Facebook to send us certain information from your Facebook profile, and you authorize us to collect, store, and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy any and all information available to us through the Facebook interface. After you have connected, Facebook also sends us additional information from your profile that allows us to display a Facebook module on the pages you view.

User Generated Content and Public Activities (Including Comments, Reader Reviews and TimesPeople)

We offer you opportunities to engage in public activities on twitplace.com and other twitplace Malaysia Services. “Public activities” are any actions you take on twitplace.com that are designed to be visible to other users, including comments, recommendations, reader reviews, ratings or any other items that you submit. Any information you disclose in your public activities, along with your screen name or ID, or any image or photo, becomes public and may be used by The twitplace Malaysia for online and offline promotional or commercial uses in any and all media. If you choose to engage in public activities, you should be aware that any personal information you submit can be read, collected and used by other users of these areas.

We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in the course of your public activities and we have no responsibility to publish, take down, remove or edit any of your public activities or submissions. For more information, see the Comments FAQ and read the Forums, Discussions and User

Generated Content section of the Terms of Service.

If you have registered for a twitplace.com account, we will track and aggregate your public activities on twitplace.com. By choosing to participate in public activities, you are electing to share and display such public activities via twitplace.com. Also, public activities may be included in RSS feeds, APIs and made available to other websites via other formats. As a result, your public activities may appear on other websites, blogs, or feeds. Keep in mind that we are not responsible for any personal information you choose to make public via your public activities, and you agree that such sharing will be deemed to have been done by you, not twitplace Malaysia.

When you share or recommend (with or without adding your own comments) any twitplace Malaysia articles or content to your Facebook profile, that action is governed by the Facebook Privacy Policy. We do not record those comments.

Contests, Sweepstakes and Special Offers

The twitplace Malaysia collects personal information from you when you participate in sweepstakes, contests or special offers. If this information is also being collected by a third party other than twitplace Malaysia, we will notify you at the same time.

The twitplace Malaysia may collect personal information from you in connection with voluntary surveys conducted via the twitplace Malaysia website.
