Skimbox is founded on the principle of helping people make better use of email. We know that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously. By using the Skimbox application and website, you are accepting the practices outlined in this policy.
Information Collected by Skimbox
We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our application. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our Skimbox users:
E-mail Communications: Skimbox is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the "Sharing Your Information" section below. Skimbox may send out e-mails with Skimbox-related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions. You may also receive notification e-mails from Skimbox, which inform you of actions that have been performed to the application. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us, please follow the instructions contained in the unwanted e-mail message. Please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.
Information You Provide to Us:
Registration: We ask for certain personal information when you register for Skimbox (either in the app or on our website) or if you elect to correspond with us: your first and last name, and your e-mail address. We use this information to provide you with Skimbox’s services, to notify you of any major changes to the application, and, if elected, to keep you apprised of Skimbox marketing activities.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our website. Skimbox and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain traffic data on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, Skimbox cookie information, and the page you requested. Skimbox uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.
Skimbox may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Skimbox will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
Sharing Your Information
Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone and that we will share your personal information only as described below.
Skimbox Personnel: Skimbox employees and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of Skimbox business. This is strictly for managing users, not for reading the contents of your email.
Corporate information: If a corporation contacts us to claim ownership of email in your account and asks us to remove their property, after vetting and verification, we may be forced to remove these contents.
With Your Consent: Except as noted above, we will contact you when your personal information is shared with third parties or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, and you will be able to opt out to prevent the sharing of this information.
Keeping Information Secure
Your Skimbox account information may be protected by a password for your privacy and security. Protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.
Skimbox uses current security best practices to protect your email. We use HTTP over Secure Socket Layers (aka HTTPS) to encrypt the transmission of your emails, and store your emails in a best practice Mongo database hosted by MongoHQ.
Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.
Since Skimbox is an email service, we will maintain your records until you tell us not to.
Ways to Control Display and Use of Your Information
As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on our website.
As explained earlier, the "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies.
Once you delete your account, all emails and other personal information, with the exception of log and usage information, will be deleted.
Children Under 18 Years of Age
You must be 14 years and older to register to use the Skimbox website. As a result, Skimbox does not specifically collect information about children. If we learn that Skimbox has collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. We recommend that minors between the ages of 14 and 18 ask and receive their parents' permission before using Skimbox or sending information about themselves or anyone else over the Internet.
