Privacy Policy

Information Collection & Use
Registration - TAP THAT GUY does not require any form of registration to use the site. When users submit posts via our submit form we do require name and email address.

TAP THAT GUY is the sole owner of the information collected on TAPTHATGUY.COM. TAP THAT GUY collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site.

Surveys or Contests - From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).  

We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic or to send participants an email newsletter. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.


Communications from the Site

Special Offers and Updates - We will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, promotions. You can sign up for these emails from us on our registration page.

Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out.” 

Newsletters - If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out” section.

Service-related Announcements - We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.  

You may opt-out of these communications. Please see “Choice and Opt-out.”


Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable) - We share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.  

Legal Disclaimer - We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site

Choice/Opt-out - We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form. 

If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at TAPTHATGUY AT GMAIL.COM or you may contact us at 415-874-5500 to opt-out.

You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.

Log Files - As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  

We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

We use a third-party tracking service Google Analytics that uses cookies to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in the aggregate.

Cookies - A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

We use both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. 

We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.  

Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies. See “Third Party Advertisers.”

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by TAPTHATGUY.COM only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers. [See the “Third Party Advertisers” section.]


Third Party Advertisers - The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered to users by ADIFY AND GOOGLE AD SENSE, our advertising partners. We share Web site usage information about users with a reputable third party GOOGLE ANALYTICS for the purpose of targeting our Internet banner advertisements on this site. 

GOOGLE ANALYTICS uses cookies and clear GIFs on this site, which allow it to recognize a user’s cookie when a user visits this site. The information that GOOGLE ANALYTICS collects and shares through this technology is not personally identifiable.  


Links to Other Sites - This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by TAP THAT GUY. Please be aware that we, TAP THAT GUY, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.  

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site. 


Access to Personally Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by or by emailing our Customer Support at TAPTHATGUY AT GMAIL.COM or by contacting us by telephone using the contact information listed below.

Security - The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at TAPTHATGUY AT GMAIL.COM 

Business Transitions - In the event TAP THAT GUY goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

Changes in this Privacy Statement - If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.

Contact Us - If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy policy, please email us at: TAPTHATGUY AT GMAIL.COM or by phone at 415-874-5500
