TapIn2Reality’s Privacy Commitment
TapIn2Reality ask for only the least amount of information necessary, gathering only what we believe is essential for doing business, or for the specific transaction at hand. We let customers know the information we have on them and allow them to opt out of specific engagements.
The goal of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather on our customers and users, how we will use it, and how we will not. This policy is unfortunately longer than we would like, but we must unambiguously address all the relevant cases. We will try and keep the language simple and direct as much as possible.

This part deals with how TapIn2Reality collects and uses information about website visitors, potential customers, users of TapIn2Reality’s products and services, and others who contact TapIn2Reality through forms or email addresses published on or linked to our websites.
