SELFDESTRUCTINGMESSAGE PRIVACY STATEMENT
ReadNotify.com Pty Ltd ("ReadNotify") is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. Because ReadNotify gathers certain types of information about the users of the SelfDestructingMessage service ("SelfDestructingMessage"), we believe you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the use of the information we collect. The following statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for SelfDestructingMessage. Please review the following statement to understand how the information you provide to ReadNotify will be treated.
1. Information ReadNotify Collects.
You are free to visit the SelfDestructingMessage Web site without identifying yourself. If, however, you would like to use SelfDestructingMessage, you will be required to first register with ReadNotify. When you register, we will request certain contact information, including your name, telephone number, street address, and e-mail address, as well as billing information, including your credit card number, bank account information, and/or social security number. Collecting contact information from you will better enable ReadNotify to contact you regarding our products and services, as well as provides us with aggregate demographic data that ReadNotify uses to improve the services offered to users. The billing information allows ReadNotify to bill you for products delivered or services rendered.
In addition to registration, ReadNotify may, from time to time, request personal information for purposes such as the provision of customer service, network management, surveys, offers of related services, and other exchanges of information between you and ReadNotify.
ReadNotify gathers information about all users collectively, such as what services users access most often. ReadNotify automatically logs IP addresses, session sources, and other data that tracks users' access to and use of SelfDestructingMessage. We analyze these logs in order to understand aggregate user behavior as well as for system performance monitoring. These logs are analyzed for the overall, aggregate trends they reveal about our customers, not for the behaviors of individual users.
2. What ReadNotify Does with the Information it Collects.
The information you supply to ReadNotify will not be given, sold, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed to any third parties outside of ReadNotify, except when we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with legal process, (ii) enforce the service terms and conditions, or (iii) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ReadNotify, its customers, or the public.
ReadNotify may use aggregated information to determine the demographics of our users and to distribute statistics and general marketplace information about ReadNotify. These demographics will always represent aggregate information and will never identify a specific user. Certain non-personal information regarding users is recorded by the operation of the Internet servers hosting the ReadNotify Web sites. ReadNotify may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our products and services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

5. Provision of Unsolicited Information.
ReadNotify appreciates your feedback and suggestions. Our goal is to provide all our customers with high quality products and service. ReadNotify's ability to freely evaluate and, if appropriate, implement ideas and information improves the online experience for all users. Therefore, any information, feedback, data, questions, comments, suggestions, or any other material, submitted to ReadNotify, whether solicited or unsolicited, regarding its software, Web site or technology shall be deemed non-confidential. By providing any such material, you hereby grant ReadNotify an unrestricted, irrevocable, royalty-free and perpetual right to freely, reproduce, use, disclose, modify, perform, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute and display any such information you send ReadNotify, without limitation, for any and all commercial and non-commercial purposes. ReadNotify is free to use any ideas, concepts or techniques contained in this response for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, and marketing products or services incorporating such ideas, concepts or techniques.
6. Routing of E-Mail.
Because SelfDestructingMessage is a certified e-mail service, e-mail messages delivered from or to registered users may be routed through ReadNotify owned or controlled mail servers during delivery. ReadNotify does not read the content of such e-mail messages, and will not allow others to do so, while the messages reside on our mail servers.
Depending on the settings chosen by SelfDestructingMessage users, ReadNotify may track outgoing and incoming e-mail message traffic. Such tracking is an integral part of the SelfDestructingMessage service, and information derived from tracking will not be disclosed in any way to third parties. Because some recipients of SelfDestructingMessage e-mail messages who are not registered users may not desire for ReadNotify to track their e-mail messages, ReadNotify will make available an "opt-out" option to those recipients.
7. ReadNotify Privacy Statement Changes.
If ReadNotify changes this Privacy Statement, we will post those changes at http://www.selfdestructingmessage.com/pmprivacy.asp so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. By using the SelfDestructingMessage services, you signify your assent to the SelfDestructingMessage Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to this statement, please do not use this Web site or the SelfDestructingMessage service. Your continued use of SelfDestructingMessage following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
