To activate the Service you do not need to submit any Personal Information other than your email address, birthday and username. To use the Service thereafter, you do not need to submit further Personal Information. However, in an effort to improve the quality of the Site and the Service, we track information provided to us by your browser or by our software application (the "Tipsi App") when you view the Site or use the Service, such as the website you came from (known as the "referring URL"), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service via a Tipsi App, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. We track this information using cookies, or small text files, which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user's browser from our servers and are stored on the user's computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user's browser enables us to collect Non-Personal information about that user and keep a record of the user's preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis.
Tipsi may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your OF YOUR PERSONAL computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.
In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate and personalize and localize the Tipsi experience for you. For example, we use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users, provide technical support, and inform users about promotional offers.
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.

We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
