As described below, ChatterBoss is able to offer its services to users through the development and marketing of aggregate and anonymous consumer data.

Some of this information, for example, your name and username, may be listed publicly or otherwise publicly viewable on our services. You may also provide information necessary to use ChatterBoss, such as the login credentials for online merchants or other Internet accounts that you link to ChatterBoss. We may also collect PII from you in other ways, such as contacts with our customer-support team.

How We Use your Personal Information
Our use of PII
We use PII for internal and service-related purposes only and we may disclose PII to the vendors and suppliers who provide various services to us. ChatterBoss does not rent, sell, or share PII with other people or nonaffiliated companies for marketing purposes. We may allow access to other ChatterBoss data, under non-disclosure agreements, to develop improvements to our services.
Third Party site support and usage.
If you authorize us to place new orders or cancel orders on your behalf using ChatterBoss’s technologies, the data in your email, including PII, will be subject to that third-party website's terms of service and privacy policies, even if you have also directly signed up for a ChatterBoss account.
Further, ChatterBoss may use a variety of third-party services to help provide our services, such as hosting our blog(s), and to help us understand the use of our services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share
information with us, like a browser cookie ID or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure ad quality and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in.
Anonymous use and sharing.
We may share with third parties anonymized information about ChatterBoss users' transactions. Such consumer behavior and information may be of value to third parties in the performance of marketing services, including evaluating market trends and/or under a joint marketing agreement to provide services that will be of particular interest and relevance to you. Again, such information will not include PII. When you deactivate your ChatterBoss account, your PII is permanently disassociated with your purchase data. The anonymized purchase data itself may continue to be incorporated in our databases and prepared analyses. This Site does not receive or respond to the DNT Header.

We may disclose PII to third parties who are: assisting us in protecting against or preventing actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims or other liabilities, or to investigate potential fraudulent or questionable activities. We may disclose PII in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may disclose PII in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, violations of our Terms of Service, or as we believe may be otherwise required by law.Merger or sale. If all or substantially all of ChatterBoss or its assets are sold or transferred, PII and other information we have collected may be treated as an asset and transferred to the acquiring party.
We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to ChatterBoss, such as service announcements and administrative messages that are considered part of your ChatterBoss account.
