With TCC, you have the flexibility to enable or disable features related to cookies and similar technologies, social media features, and more, tailored to your preferences.
3.2. Maintenance and Accessibility: While we strive to ensure that TCC is available and functional at all times, there may be occasions when it temporarily undergoes maintenance or experiences technical issues. During such instances, you may encounter a malfunction notice or a greyed-out background. Rest assured that any interruptions to TCC's availability will be temporary, and we'll work diligently to restore full functionality as quickly as possible.

Please be assured that we handle your information in accordance with applicable data protection laws and regulations.
5.1. Direct User Input: The majority of the information we gather is provided directly by you on a voluntary basis. We collect and process your information when you choose to subscribe to Tanizzle Network Groups. Additionally, in some instances, we may utilize survey forms or questionnaires provided by third parties to gather valuable insights.
When you create a Tanizzle Account using your Facebook credentials, we may request access to your basic public profile and publicly available information related to your Facebook profile. Any additional information we receive from you will be on a voluntary basis and typically relates to optional features, such as social media third-party widgets. These widgets are disabled by default and can only be enabled through the Tanizzle Control Centre if you wish to engage with their services, features, and content.
5.4. Creating Your Tanizzle Account: To create a Tanizzle Account, we require certain information from you, including your first name, date of birth (DOB), and email address. This information is essential for several purposes, including communication with you and ensuring the integrity of your account.
5.5. Importance of Date of Birth (DOB): Your date of birth is a critical piece of information that serves multiple functions. It helps us in:
5.6. Data Sharing Practices: We want to assure you that we do not sell or directly share your personal information ("Gold") with third parties that could identify you individually. However, we may share aggregated data with third parties to provide insights into our visitor demographics, such as statistics related to the geographic location and time zones of our users. It's important to note that this sharing does not entail direct engagement with these entities.
We employ analytics technology that may include resources from these third parties on Tanizzle to gain a better understanding of our platform's operations and improve our services.
6.1. Participation Requirements: Before you can partake in Tanizzle Competitions ("TaniComps"), we may require certain information from you to facilitate your participation. The specific personal information we collect may vary depending on the nature of the TaniComps, which are opportunities provided by Tanizzle and typically require a Tanizzle Account.
6.3. Data Retention: It's important to note that while some TaniComps may not be ongoing or permanent, we retain certain information, including your Gold, for legitimate purposes. This retention allows us to analyze trends related to our competitions and to identify and prevent any potential misuse or manipulation of our winner selection methods.
Even if you delete your Tanizzle Account, in cases where TaniComps do not necessitate a Tanizzle Account, and we retain your Gold after you've requested its deletion, you acknowledge and accept that Tanizzle reserves the right to keep your information for the purpose of ensuring the integrity and security of TaniComps.
7.1. Purposeful Use of Your Information: We process your information ("Gold") with care and transparency to enhance your Tanizzle experience. Here's how we use your Gold:
7.2. Enhancing and Securing Our Services: We also utilize your Gold for the following purposes:
8.1. Secure Storage and Transmission: Tanizzle takes your data security seriously. We securely store your information ("Gold") on servers provided by CrazyDomains in the United Kingdom. All data transmission is protected using the industry-standard Transport Layer Socket cryptographic protocol, designed to provide encrypted communications over computer networks. This ensures that your data remains confidential and protected during transmission and storage.
8.2. Data Transfer Outside Your Jurisdiction By using our Services, you acknowledge and understand that your Gold data may be transferred outside of your local jurisdiction. Furthermore, you accept that our hosting provider and their servers may not be located in your specific country, region, or continent ("place of residence").
8.3. Data Retention: We will retain certain Gold data, such as names, date of birth, location, and sexual identity, until your Tanizzle Account has been permanently deleted by you. In cases where your Tanizzle Account has been inactive (no sign-ins) for a continuous period of 6 months from your last engagement, we may intend to send you a Tanizzle User Account Inactivity Notification via email. Please note that the delivery of this notification is not guaranteed.
9.1. Empowering Your Data Protection Rights: At Tanizzle, we are committed to ensuring that you have full control over your data protection rights and are well-informed about them. Whether you're within the European Economic Area (EEA) under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or fall under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), your rights are important to us.
9.2. Request Response Time: If you reside within the European Economic Area (EEA) under GDPR, and you make a request regarding your Gold data, we have a legal obligation to respond to you within one month.
9.3. Exercising Your Rights: These data protection rights also extend to users who are covered by the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA). To exercise any of these rights, please contact us using our provided contact form.. However, please note that during maintenance periods, our contact form may be temporarily unavailable and may remain disabled at our sole discretion, unless otherwise stated.
The following points explain your data protection rights:
10.1. Understanding Gated Age-Limit Restrictions (GALR): Gated Age-Limit Restrictions, commonly referred to as GALR, are limitations imposed on Tanizzle Accounts based on a user's (unverified) age or, in certain cases, security concerns that cannot be disclosed. GALR serves to ensure a secure and age-appropriate environment for our users. These restrictions can be unlocked by submitting your date of birth (DOB) information through the Tanizzle Friend Hub (found in your user settings). However, it's important to note that users must be at least 13 years old, which is also referred to as the Qualifying Visit Age, in order to maintain a Tanizzle Account.
10.2. Age Consent for Users Under 18: For users under the age of 18, there may be additional requirements, such as obtaining consent from a Responsible Guardian. To learn more about Responsible Guardians and their role in ensuring Tanizzle Account integrity and adherence to age limits, please refer to our dedicated section on this topic.
10.3. Purpose of GALR: In most cases, GALR is implemented to achieve the following objectives:
11.1. GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation: Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are required to obtain your consent to collect and use your information, referred to as "Gold." GDPR mandates that consent must be freely given, specific, informed, and represent an unambiguous indication of the data subject's request. "Personal data," in this context, encompasses any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person, known as a "Data Subject."
A Data Subject is an entity who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, particularly by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
11.2. CCPA - California Consumer Privacy Act: The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a United States law enacted by the State of California, which requires publishers to offer an "opt-out" solution for users who do not wish to have their data sold. CCPA defines "personal information" broadly as any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. This includes items such as an Internet Protocol address, real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, email address, account name, social security number, driver's license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.
11.3. Use of Third-Party Advertisements and Plugins: We utilize advertisements and plugins from third-party vendors who may potentially use personal information, as defined by both CCPA and GDPR, to serve and target consumers using data gathered on our site when displaying advertisements.
12.1. How to Opt-Out: At Tanizzle, we value your preferences, and opting out of personalized advertising is simple. You can do this by using our user-friendly Tanizzle Control Centre (TCC). The TCC empowers users to easily manage their advertising preferences and control plugins, often referred to as widgets.
12.2. Implications for Widgets: Please be aware that adjusting your advertising preferences may affect the functionality of certain widgets. Widgets are essential for various interactive features, such as viewing YouTube videos, commenting on pages, and accessing Instagram posts or Tweets, among other enhancements. Adjusting your settings may impact your ability to access these features.
12.3. Clarity on Opting Out: It's important to clarify that opting out, in any way or form, does not mean that you won't see advertisements on Tanizzle Network Groups. While using our platform, you may still encounter advertisements; however, these ads will not be personalized or specifically targeted to your interests.
13.1. What Technologies Do We Use?: We utilize various technologies to enhance your Tanizzle experience. Here's an overview of the technologies we employ:
HTTP Cookies: Also known as web beacons, browser cookies, digital crumbs, or simply cookies, these are small text files stored on your device while you browse. We use both "first-party" cookies set by us and "third-party" cookies set by alternative sources. These cookies are used for non-personalized and personalized advertising, analytics, performance optimization, and social media features. It's important to note that while the concept of cookies may seem daunting to some, Tanizzle primarily uses "first-party" cookies sparingly, with one named TACT_IX. TACT_IX is employed to understand the browsing behavior of our loyal users and can be disabled. For clarity, TACT_IX is not used for advertising and is recommended for security purposes for Tanizzle Account holders.
HTML 5 Local Storage: This technology allows data to be saved within your browser and is more secure than HTTP cookies. Two storage types are available: session storage, which stores data until the user closes the browser, and long-term storage, where data is retained even after exiting the browser software. Session storage is ideal for temporary data storage, suitable for short visits. In contrast, local storage is permanent until manually removed and is ideal for long-term users, making it particularly useful for our account auto-login feature.
Pixels (Web Beacons): Pixels, also known as web beacons, are small images that collect information about your visit and can set cookies. The Tanizzle Pixel helps us understand how you interact with our Services, develop new content and features, analyze marketing strategies, and, importantly, enhance security. The Tanizzle Pixel is predominantly utilized in email marketing and general communications to gauge the reach and engagement of our content.
Software Development Kit (SDK): SDKs, or Software Development Kits, consist of code blocks or plugins provided by our third-party partners. SDKs enhance your experience on Tanizzle by facilitating actions such as sharing content, writing comments, liking and saving content, creating accounts, logging into Tanizzle, watching videos, and more. Additionally, SDKs monitor user browsing behavior and may set cookies. It's important to note that while we implement these SDKs to improve your experience, Tanizzle does not assume responsibility for their actions. Nevertheless, we trust their use to enhance your overall interaction with our platform.
14.1. Functional Cookies Functional cookies are essential for the proper functioning of our platform. They play a vital role in:
14.2. Google reCAPTCHA and Security: To enhance security, Tanizzle utilizes Google reCAPTCHA, a security feature designed to protect our assets. Users are required to complete reCAPTCHA challenges (to confirm they are not robots) while visiting Tanizzle. By using Tanizzle, you accept the use of any Google cookies, technologies, and resources that Google may provide or implement for reCAPTCHA. For more information, please review Google's terms and policies.
14.3. Performance Cookies: Performance cookies are instrumental in helping us better understand how you interact with our Services. These cookies may also contribute to personalized content tailored to your preferences. Performance cookies may be implemented using a combination of standard HTTP Cookies and HTML 5 Storage options, as mentioned earlier.
14.4. Advertising and Social Media Cookies: Advertising and Social Media cookies enhance your user experience in the following ways:
As a user, you may notice that YouTube videos are not displayed by default until you provide your consent via the Tanizzle Control Centre.
15.1. Cookie Control Options: You have several options to control how Tanizzle Network Groups and/or our partners utilize cookies for advertising, performance, social media, and analytics. While most browsers accept cookies by default and provide options to remove them, we recommend using the preferences available in the Tanizzle Control Centre to enable or disable preferences instead of clearing cookies and settings entirely.
15.2. Managing Google Analytics: If you wish to prevent your Gold data from being used by Google Analytics, you can take the following steps:

Importantly, it is crucial to note that all our bots are created with a strict commitment to uphold privacy rights and are not intended to infringe upon or violate any individual's privacy.

18.1. Policy Updates: We are committed to ensuring the transparency and relevance of our Policy. To this end, we regularly review and make updates to our Policy. Any significant changes and updates will be posted on Tanizzle Network Groups. Additionally, all Tanizzle Account users will receive an email notification informing them of these changes, to the extent feasible and without any guarantee of email delivery. It's important to note that we may revise our Policy at our sole discretion and reserve the right to do so without requiring your explicit consent. Any revisions made to our Policy will become effective immediately upon posting on the Site. It is your responsibility to routinely review our Policy, including our Terms of Service, as your continued use of the Site after an update signifies your acceptance of the changes.

Creating a Tanizzle Account: When you create a Tanizzle account using the standard method, without a third-party service like Facebook, we will collect certain information. This includes your first name and email address, which are essential for communication, as well as your password to ensure account security and integrity.
We also request your gender and location, although providing this information is optional. You can choose "Prefer not to say" or select from the other menu options. It is mandatory to provide your date of birth for content restrictions and to comply with relevant age-related laws.

You have the right to deny any permissions requested during this process. However, please note that depending on our systems at the time, a valid email address may be required to create a Tanizzle account. If a new user successfully registers without setting an email address, it's strongly recommended to establish a password (in addition to a Tanizzle Username) to secure your account and prevent potential loss of access.
Signing into Tanizzle: To sign into Tanizzle using the standard method, you will need to provide your username or email address and password.
Important: If you forget your password and no longer have access to the email address linked to your account, please note that account recovery may not be possible unless you have previously set a Tanizzle Username.

If you didn't intend to register with Tanizzle, you can visit User Settings after signing in and delete any traces under the Security tab to maintain your privacy.
If you have general questions, legal requests, special marketing or advertising inquiries, or feedback, please utilize the Tanizzle Contact form.
