Privacy/Terms

Privacy Policy

As of June 11th, 2017 
SimpleCommands Inc. ("SimpleCommands") takes the private nature of your personal information very seriously. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit and use the SIMPLECOMMANDS website located at simplecommands.com (the "Site") and the services offered by SIMPLECOMMANDS (the Site, and services referred to as the "Service"). Please read this Privacy Policy to learn more about the ways in which SIMPLECOMMANDS uses and protects your personal information. By using the Service you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms, please do not use the Service or access our Site. 

The SIMPLECOMMANDS Service is not intended for use by children. If you are under 18, you may use the Service only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

Information We Collect Automatically
Browsing the Site does not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In general, SIMPLECOMMANDS will gather some generic information automatically. This generic information may include the internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors to the Site, the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the Site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the Site or not), and your computer browser information. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. This type of aggregate data may enable us to figure out how often users use parts of the Service, help us determine customer service and Site needs, and do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, and serve you and our community. SIMPLECOMMANDS may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information, not information about you personally, to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our Service. 

Information You Provide to Us  
We receive and store any information you enter on the Service or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, though you may not be able to take advantage of many Service features. The personal information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your questions or requests, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about new Service features. You agree that we may use your personal information to contact you as provided herein, though our intent is that email is the only channel we will use to contact you without your consent. 

In order for you to take full advantage of the Service, you must provide registration information, including your name, e-mail address and password. We may also request demographic information and unique identifiers in order to provide you with a more personalized service, but this information is optional. Once you register for the Service, make Connections or add Listeners, and/or give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. Usernames and links to public accounts are only shown on your profile with your consent. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to register for the Service or create any tasks or channels. Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, and efficient experience. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. SIMPLECOMMANDS may disclose information it has collected from you and/or that you have made available through the Service when it believes in good faith that the law or legal process requires it, or when it is necessary to do so to protect the rights or property of SIMPLECOMMANDS or others. You are responsible for managing the flow of your private information from one third party service to another.

Is My Information Secure?  
We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software to protect the security of your personal information during transmission, which encrypts all of the information you input. All personal information collected from other services that you provide through the use of the Service is stored securely. Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices. 

Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, we may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. 

You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your passwords and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer. You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password. Therefore we recommend that you do not disclose your password to any third parties. If you choose to share your User ID and password or your personal information with third parties, you are responsible for all actions taken with your account and therefore you should review that third party's privacy policy. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf such as if someone used your User and ID password to forward libelous material through the Service. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. 

What about Cookies?  
When you visit the Site, we may send one or more "cookies" to your computer hard drive through your Web browser. A cookie is a small file containing 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. Any use of cookies by us will be solely for the purposes of improving the quality of access to the Site by storing user preferences, and tracking user trends, such as how people use the Site, and their Site access preferences. Cookies tell us how and when pages in our Site are visited and by how many people. We use cookies to allow you to enter your login information less frequently. To the extent SIMPLECOMMANDS uses cookies, such cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your username or e-mail address is. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Site and you may be required to reenter your password or login information more frequently. SIMPLECOMMANDS visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Site. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. We recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because deleting cookies may reduce the functionality of SIMPLECOMMANDS. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties. 

Will SIMPLECOMMANDS Share Any of the Information it Receives with Other Entities?  
We may use third party service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of our business and therefore we may provide some of your personal information directly to these service providers. We may share our data, including personal information about you with our partners and joint ventures in furtherance of our business. In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if SIMPLECOMMANDS, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SIMPLECOMMANDS goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that may be transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SIMPLECOMMANDS may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy. SIMPLECOMMANDS cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws and intellectual property rights. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, and email address. We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss; or report suspected illegal activity. This Privacy Policy applies to the SIMPLECOMMANDS Service only. We do not exercise control over any sites that you may visit from a link on our Site. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Since SIMPLECOMMANDS does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others. 

Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information  
Connections and Listeners can be disconnected at anytime though prior tasks and Connections may remain in our electronic archive. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. You may be able to add or update certain additional information via the Service.

User Communications  
You may input your contact information into the Service so that SIMPLECOMMANDS may contact you. When you enter your contact information or send an email or other communication to SIMPLECOMMANDS, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries and respond to your requests. We do not use your email address or contact information to send commercial or marketing messages nor do we give or sell this information to any third parties. To the extent your e-mail address is provided to SIMPLECOMMANDS, you may receive e-mail or other communications from us. 

Changes to this Policy  
Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Policy changes on this page. We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amend terms on the Site. All amended terms shall automatically be effective thirty (30) days after they are initially posted on the Site. Each version of this Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date.

15. GENERAL.

Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under the Agreement are assignable by you, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect.  Any waiver of any provision of the Agreement must be in writing and executed by both parties. The failure of either party to exercise any right provided for by the Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of that right.  If any term or provision of the Agreement is determined to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid in whole or in part for any reason, that provision shall be stricken from the Agreement and shall not affect the legality, enforceability or validity of the remainder of the provisions set forth in the Agreement. The parties acknowledge and agree that they are dealing with each other as independent contractors and nothing in the Agreement and its performance shall be construed as creating a joint venture or agency between SIMPLECOMMANDS and you.  SIMPLECOMMANDS may delegate the performance of any services hereunder to its affiliates and contractors. These Terms, the Privacy Policy, the Developer Terms, the Additional Terms and any other policies or terms and condition referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between the parties regarding the subject matter, and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements or communications with regard to the subject matter described. Any notice to you may be provided by email. The headings of Sections of the Agreement are for convenience and are not to be used in interpreting the Agreement.  As used in the Agreement, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.” You agree that the Agreement will not be construed against SIMPLECOMMANDS by virtue of having drafted them. The official text of the Agreement (and any notice submitted hereunder) will be in English. The parties acknowledge that they require that the Agreement be drawn up in the English language only. In the event of any dispute concerning the construction or meaning of the Agreement, reference will be made only to the Agreement as written in English and not to any translation into another language.  Any delay in performance of any duties or obligations of either party will not be considered a breach of the Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, telecommunications or Internet failure, or any other event beyond the reasonable control of such party.
