Privacy Policy


Last updated: 27 October 2016

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for Thickit and applies to information that is potentially collected, shared, distributed, or protected in relation to both the mobile application “Thickit” or the website “thickitapp.com” (thus referred to as Services) and the Users (Campers) who use the Services.

By using the Services, you understand and agree that Thickit provides a platform for you to publicly post photographic and textual content regarding other Campers to the Services. This means that other Campers may see any of your Camper Content that you make available, and that is made available about you with or without your knowledge, through the Services, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

Please be sure to read through the Privacy Policy in its entirety if you intend to use the Services. By using the Services, you are agreeing to the Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with the Privacy Policy, then do not use the Services.

What We Collect and How We Use It

Email Address
To create a Thickit account, you will be asked to provide a valid email address. We will use the email address you provide in the event we need to contact you. Instances when we would contact you include, but are not limited to, a technical problem with your account or your posted content, a legal problem regarding your account or posted content, a reply to app feedback or support question, a ban or removal of your account or posted content, or to tell you about product updates or changes to this privacy policy. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.

Password
The password you provide is only used to login to your account. It is encrypted in our database to ensure its protection

APNS Device Token
Should you allow Thickit to send your Push Notifications, we store your unique Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) Device Token in our database. This is unique to your device and your personal install of Thickit. It is generated by Apple and provided to Thickit for use in our database. Thickit uses your token to send Push Notifications to your unique device only when:

  • Another user Catches you
  • Another user requests to join your Camp
Should you not allow Thickit to send you Push Notifications, Apple will not generate a Device Token for Thickit and you will not receive Push Notifications.

Image Privacy

Every image uploaded to Thickit has it’s own URL, and can be accessed and viewed by any individual who types in that exact URL regardless of the access that individual may or may not have been granted within Thickit.

Within the app, all images you are tagged in are visible to all Thickit users, regardless if you have added them to your Camp or not.

Thickit reserves the right to remove any image without notice or contest at its own discretion.

Personal Security

The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we do our best to ensure the protection of your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We take every reasonable precaution to protect your private data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. It is your responsibility as a Thickit user to take every reasonable precaution to protect any unauthorized person from accessing your account.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Cookies

Thickit will save a cookie to your device to store your User ID upon successful login. Your user ID is unique to your account. When set, the User ID cookie is used to automatically log you into your account when you open Thickit. It is also checked frequently by Thickit to ensure you are allowed to perform certain functions and/or view certain information.

In the event you log out of your account, the user ID cookie is removed and you will no longer be automatically logged into your account by opening the Thickit app. You will need to log in again to create a new User ID Cookie.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of 27 October 2016 and will remain in effect until any changes or updates are made in the future, which will be in effect immediately after a newer version of the app is released with the updated Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you will be notified of any future changes. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us via email.
