Effective date: January 11, 2021
We at 3Girls Tech, LLC (“3GT,” “we,” “us,” “our”) take individuals’ privacy seriously and we are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of individuals with whom we interact.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This policy does not apply to websites or practices of companies that 3GT does not own or control, or to individuals that 3GT does not employ or manage, including providers of third-party software or content.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you provide us when using our website, social media locations, or services (collectively, the “Services”), whether via computer, mobile phone, other wireless device, or that you provide to us in any other way. For example, if you register to use Services we offer, you will provide your first name, last name, mailing address, email address, phone number, billing and financial information to facilitate payment (e.g. a credit card number and expiration date or a bank account number). You may also provide us with additional types of Personal Information in your interactions with us.
If you submit content in a community or discussion forum, blog or social media post, or use a similar feature on the 3GT platform, that content will be publicly visible, so please consider the confidentiality of any information, including your Personal Information, prior to providing information in any of these ways.
Information Collected Automatically
We receive and store certain types of information about your use of our Services (“Usage Information”) whenever you interact with the Services. For example, 3GT automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, 3GT cookie information, and the page on our Site that you requested. We also record the details of your activity on the Site, which, together with records of other visitors’ Usage Information, allows us to learn the number and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components. In addition, the Services may contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs), which are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the Services are used. Web beacons may also be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails (and which links within those emails) have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer or mobile device to enable our systems to recognize your computer or device and tell us which pages your computer or device visits our Site and for how long. We do not combine the general information collected through our cookies with Personal Information we maintain about you to tell us that the cookie information is yours. Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) an option allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because you may not be able to log in or use many of the Services’ most attractive features without cookies enabled.
By visiting our website, you are deemed to unambiguously agree to its use of any cookies that you do not disable.
HOW WE MAY USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We use the information we gather from Users to personalize and improve our Services, including by enabling Users to set up accounts and profiles through the Services, and to use the capabilities provided through our Services. For example, when you use the Services, depending on the category of User (“User Category”) in which you are registered, you may set up your personal profile, send messages, perform searches and queries, provide information through various channels, and execute transactions with 3GT and its retail partners.
The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain information and services, customizing your experience, and communicating with you about the Services. We also use Personal Information for creating your individual account, customizing your experience, and for sending you notifications via the Services (“Notifications”).
- Payment Information
Your account and payment information will be used for billing and payment purposes by 3GT and by any third-party payment services provider we may engage to manage and process payments for our customers. By using our Services, you authorize us to sub-contract in this manner on your behalf. If your Personal Information as the account holder differs from Personal Information of the billing contact listed for your account, we may disclose your identity and account details to the billing contact upon their request (such as an account administrator under an enterprise account).
- Your email address
We will use your email address to may send you email communications. To opt out of receiving emails from us, please contact us at email@example.com.
3GT uses Usage Information in the aggregate, to enable us to figure out how often Users use particular parts of the Services, so that we can customize and improve the Services to make them as appealing and relevant as possible to as many Users as possible.
WHEN WE MAY SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information. We may share your Personal Information as described below:
- With Our Businesses Partners
3GT does not share Personal Information with third parties for those parties’ own marketing purposes.
- With our Service Providers and Agents
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, processing payment, and providing user services. Unless we tell you differently, 3GT’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
- Business Transfers
- Protection of 3GT and Others
We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law (such as to comply with a subpoena); enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of 3GT, our employees, our users, or others. We will use our best efforts to give you notice if we release information for these reasons, but we reserve the right not to so if it imposes an undue burden or expense, requires us to release confidential commercial information, or requires the disclosure of information relating to another person.
We may also share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other anonymized information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our partners’ services and the Services to help provide you with an optimal online experience.

Your 3GT account Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. We also use coding practices which take steps to prevent attack on our Services from web browsers and malicious scripts, by processing all actions through several permission verifications checks.
