mysms takes privacy very seriously. We recognize that our customers, visitors, users want to know what information we collect and how we use it. That is why we provide this Privacy Notice to help you make an informed decision about whether you want to use or continue using mysms websites, mysms applications and other mysms services ("mysms Services").
When you use mysms Services you provide certain information (such as your phone number, password, email address) to mysms. You also allow access to information on your phone (contact list, SMS message inbox) when choosing to use mysms Services. Depending on the type of mysms Service, this information may be transmitted, stored and used to provide you with a better experience.
When using mysms Services you may exchange private messages (including, but not limited to text, images, video, and any file) with whom you choose. Text messages are encrypted and sent via SSL, ensuring the maximum security for your data. We may maintain information associated with those messages, such as the phone number, date and time of transaction, and content of the message. None of the information that you send is ever made public, unless you explicitly opt-in for that.
Like many websites mysms may use "cookies" when you visit or use mysms Services. A cookie is a small text file that uniquely identifies your browser. mysms uses secure cookies for the mysms applications that means the cookie is always encrypted when transmitting from client to server. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can adjust your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However the mysms Services may not work properly when cookies are disabled.
When you use mysms Services, our servers automatically collect information. Log file information may include information such as Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses, browser type, browser language, date and time, what features you use and for how long, "cookies", the type and unique number of the device you use to access the mysms Service, your mobile operator and other information regarding your use of the service.
We may keep track of your interaction with the links we use in texts and updates. We do this in order to improve the mysms Services.
In general, we use the information we collect to operate, maintain and provide to you the mysms Services. We also try to improve and personalize your use of mysms Services based on this information. In addition, we may use your personal information to inform you about developments of the mysms Services (e.g. notifying you about major updates of the mysms service) and promotional activities carried out by mysms. We also use the information that we collect for analyzing user preferences and for reporting. This allows us to improve the mysms Services, create new features, promotions and identify technical problems.
You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through mysms Services. However, mysms may not be able to offer certain services to you. We take reasonable measures to protect your privacy (such as verifying your number when creating an account) in order to identify your identity before granting you access to an account.
mysms will not share your personal information (such as your phone number) with other third-party companies except in the limited circumstances described here:
We may share or disclosure your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client to access your mysms account.
We may release personal information if we believe that it is appropriate or necessary to comply with law, regulation or legal request, to protect the safety of any person, to address fraud, security or technical issues, to protect the rights or property, or personal safety of mysms, our users or others.
If mysms is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, your information provided to us may be transferred as part of that transaction.
mysms will take reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the security of your personal information against loss, misuse and unlawful behavior. This includes appropriate encryption, secure storage of your information on mysms servers, and limited access to authorized employees only. However, be informed that we cannot eliminate completely all security risks associated with storage and data transmission.
If you have a mysms account, you are able to access and modify your personal information provided to us anytime.
