Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes Tip The Web’s policies on the collection, use, and disclosure of your information

Registration and Account Information

When you sign up for an account at Tip The Web, you choose a 3rd-party identity provider such as Google, Yahoo, Twitter, or Facebook. This allows Tip The Web to avoid requiring you to create a new username and password. Tip The Web uses internet standards like OpenID and OAuth to securely manage this process. When creating an account, and later when signing into your account, Tip The Web uses these standard technology to collect your name, email address, and optionally a thumbnail picture that you manage through the 3rd-party identity provider.

Tip The Web will collect your email address directly if the 3rd-party identity provider does not provide one, or if you wish to change your email address used by Tip The Web

Email Address Use

Tip The Web uses your email address only to send you important service and account notifications and announcements. We will not send you messages advertising other services. We will not sell your email address to 3rd parties.

Financial Information

Tip The Web does not collect or store financial information such as Credit Card numbers or billing addresses. We use trusted 3rd-party payment processors such as PayPal and Amazon Payments to process your Donations and Awards

Your Tips

In general, Tip The Web does not treat your Tips as private data, although we may provide options to limit the degree to which we publish identifying information along with your tip.

Your Awards

Tip The Web does not currently publish detailed information about Awards you receive to the public. Tip The Web will disclose information about total Awarded amounts to the IRS if required to do so in compliance with U.S. tax law.

Modification of this Privacy Policy
