Information Collected Automatically

Like most e-commerce websites, we collect your IP address (the series of numbers unique to your computer) and the webpage from which you came, to optimize the Site for you and to diagnose problems with our server.

Like most websites, we also use cookies (small text files placed on your computer's hard drive by a website) for authentication purposes. You can disable these cookies through your browser settings; however, this may prevent your access to certain areas on the Site.

Information You Provide to Us

When you register as a member, we ask for limited personal information, your e-mail address and password. This is kept private. When you make a Flash-card Decks, you enter free-form information. If you elect to share such a deck, this information is public, and may be shared with anyone. Otherwise, this information is kept private.

The Site contains links to other Websites operated by other parties. By clicking on these links and visiting these other Websites, you acknowledge that we do not control these other Websites or their business practices, and that their collection and use of your information are not governed by this Statement. We recommend you to review their privacy policies and remember that we are not responsible for their actions.

How We Use Your Information

We use your personal information for authentication purposes, and to contact you about your account or to notify you of updates to the Site. We may use any information to improve the content and performance of our Site.

With Whom We May Share Your Information

We may share your public information with our consultants and with advertisers, on an anonymous and aggregated basis. We may disclose any information, whether public or non-public, on a non-anonymous basis if we reasonably believe that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement, or to protect the interests or safety of 10 Startups or other visitors to the Site, or in the event of a transfer of ownership of assets or a bankruptcy.

This Statement does not apply to the use of your information by any third party with whom we are allowed to share or to whom you provide your information. Such use of your information is regulated under our contractual arrangements with such third parties, and their own privacy policies, over which we have no control. You agree that such use of your information is solely between you and such third parties, and that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions.

Monitoring of Content

Public information is moderated, and we reserve the right to edit or delete such information. While we do not, as a rule, monitor, edit, or delete content added by members, we reserve the right to do so if we suspect a breach of this Statement or of our Terms of Use in the conduct of the users in question.

Our Security Features

We have thoughtfully considered and implemented measures to safeguard our servers against intrusion, theft and/or destruction of sensitive data under our control.

Despite our efforts to protect the personal information of our users, there remains some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of information over the Internet will be intercepted. However, 10 Startups will always be vigilant in minimizing such risk.

We will continue to have the right to modify this Statement, without notice, as described above, provided that such modifications shall only apply to information gathered on or after the date of the modification. For information gathered before the date of a modification, we will provide e-mail notifications to users and a 30-day notice on the Site before the modified Statement applies.
