Do You Store Twitter Account Information?
In order to provide the service we offer we need to keep your twitter login
information stored in our database so that we can assist you with generating
more followers. Unlike many other similar services we encrypt our data so that
your privacy is protected and secured using the latest in server security. We
respect your privacy and we will never disclose, sell or trade this information.
We also use this to occassionaly send out promotional "Tweets" for our service
or websites in our network. These are to assist you in gaining more followers
and make the most out of our service.
Do you collect IP addresses?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of
numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a
visitor requests a page from any Web site within the HitFollow Network, our
Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address.
The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the
IP address from which you have accessed our Sites. We use this information to
examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the HitFollow
Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and
evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not
automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
