Privacy Policy

Last modified: March 28, 2014

There are many different ways you can use our services – to pay for services, search for and share information,
to communicate with other people or to create new content regarding the services we provide. When you share information with us,
for example by creating a 5Text Account, we can make those services even better by reducing the time and cost in making payments for the services involved.
to help you connect with gods and services which may be useful and timely for your particular needs or to people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier.
As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

Our Privacy Policy explains:

  • What information we collect and why we collect it.
  • How we use that information.
  • How we use that information.

The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies,
IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first.
Your privacy matters to 5Text so whether you are new to 5Text or a long-time user,
please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions consult this page.

Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak,
to more complex things like which payment services you’ll find most useful or the services which matter most to you online.

We collect information in two ways

  • Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a 5Text Account.
  • When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card.
  • If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible 5Text Profile, which may include your name and photo.
  • Information we get from your use of our services.
  • We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them,
  • like when you visit a website that uses our advertising services or you view and interact with our ads and content.

Device information

We may collect device-specific information
(such as your hardware model, perating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number).
5Text may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your 5Text Account.

Log information

When you use our services or view content provided by 5Text, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:

  • details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
  • telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information.
  • Internet protocol address.
  • device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
  • cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your 5Text Account.

Location information

When you use a location-enabled 5Text service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. Unique application numbers Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to 5Text when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.

Local storage

We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

Cookies and anonymous identifiers

We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a 5Text service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or 5Text features that may appear on other sites. How we use information we collect We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect 5Text and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads. We may use the name you provide for your 5Text Profile across all of the services we offer that require a 5Text Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your 5Text Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible 5Text Profile information, such as your name and photo. When you contact 5Text, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health. We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other 5Text services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. We will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent, which can be revoked by you at any time.. We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy. 5Text processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live. Transparency and choice People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can: Review and control certain types of information tied to your 5Text Account by using 5Text Dashboard. View and edit your preferences about the ads shown to you on 5Text and across the web, such as which categories might interest you, using Ads Settings. You can also opt out of certain 5Text advertising services here. Use our editor to see and adjust how your 5Text Profile appears to particular individuals.
