If you reside outside of the European Economic Area, your acceptance of this Policy constitutes your consent to the processing of activities described here under the laws of your jurisdiction.

Like with the majority of legal policies online some information can be hard to understand, so we've included useful links within paragraphs for a better understanding if you choose to visit these pages. All redirection links whether internal or external are coloured Orange, and links that open in new windows can be differentiated by the external icon .

Tanizzle Control
Public Settings Hub

The Tanizzle Control Centre - (TCC) is a handy tool that allows you to easily enable, and disable features related to cookies and similar technologies, social media features, and more. TCC is very useful before entering your personal data into forms, and some pages e.g login have specific panels dedicated to that section only. Learn more about Tanizzle Control .

Data collected
What data do we collect?

We collect your personal information including your first and last names, sexual identity - gender, date of birth, email address, and country. We also collect your username, password, Internet Protocol Address - commonly known as an IP, it's an alphanumerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication; your device information including the make, and model, operating system type and version; browser type - commonly known as an User Agent , and cookies.

Collecting Data
How do we collect your data?

Most of the info collected by us is directly provided by you on a voluntary basis. We collect, and process info when you create an optional account, or by completing any form on the Site. In some cases we may use survey forms, or questionaires by third-parties that are clearly labelled by branding, and have informative text in close proximity entailing privacy information. We use cookies to analyse traffic, and to establish your frequent visits whenever you use Tanizzle with consent, meaning you have to approve our use of cookies for performance, measurement, and general analytical purposes.

How about your data from third-parties? We use Facebook to allow you to create accounts, write comments, and engage with social media communities. In the event you wish to engage with any features provided by Facebook you accept the Facebook Privacy Policy considering an account's required to interact with their services, widgets, or general technologies. When you create an account with us using Facebook we request your basic public profile , this is the information publicly available to everyone regardless of whether they have an account, or not.

Any additional information we receive from you will be voluntarily given for optional features e.g social media third-party widgets that are disabled by default, and can only enabled via Tanizzle Control you if you wish to engage with their services, features, and content.

Why do we want this data?

Your first name, date of birth, and email are required in order to create an account with us for communications, and account integrity purposes. Your date of birth's important for us to limit content that may be inappropriate, or deemed not safe for minors, or to adhere to your local law jurisdictions like in the United States of America with COPPA where children under 13 are not allowed accounts - Tanizzle doesn't knowningly collect data from minors under the age of 13 even with consent from parents, or guardians. Personal data such as sex, and location are not mandatory however, help us recommend you personalised content whilst visiting the Site. Our forms always offer the "prefer not to say", or "other" alternatives for optional preferences only.

We don't sell, or share your Info with any third-party that could directly identify you however, we will supply third-parties with aggregated results of our users e.g the statistics of visitors by country, sex, timezone etc. to better understand our traffic, and audience. This doesn't mean that we engage with these entities directly to share your information, as we use analytics technology to achieve this by inserting their code on all public pages to better our operations, and business.

Using Your Data
How do we use your data?

We process your data in order to contact you about important information concerning your account, send you newsletters, special offers, and recommedations for Services you might like. Messages known as Subscriber Bulletins are compulsory, and can't be declined unless otherwise stated. Learn more about our Terms for User Communications.

All types of subscriptions, and recommendation based contacts are all optional, and can be managed via your Account Settings when logged in. We do not process your information on an individual basis unless it concerns security, you have directly engaged with us via our contact form; you have requested for the information we have on you, and when we have been required to do so by law.

We also use your data for identifying improvements, and maintaining our Services. As security, and user safety is important to us your IP address, user agent, and cookies will be used to combat fraudulent, and abusive behaviour on our Site. If you agree we will share your info with third-parties to offer their services, and products.

Storing Your Data
How do we store your data?

Tanizzle securely stores your data using CrazyDomains servers in the United Kingdom, and all data's transmitted using the industry standard Transport Layer Socket cryptographic protocol, designed to provide encrypted communications over computer networks.

Your Rights
Your data protection rights

Tanizzle endeavours to ensure that you have control of, and are fully aware of all of your data protection rights. If you make a request for your information, we have one month to respond to you if you reside within the European Economic Area under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These rights also protect users who fall under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA). If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us using our contact form if available - during maintainence our form may be unavailable, and will remain disabled at our sole discretion unless stated otherwise. The following explain your rights:

International Requirements

Under the General Data Protection Regulation we require consent to collect and use personal data. Under the EU regulation consent must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's request. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person - considered the ('data subject') - an identifiable natural person's one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

CCPA is a USA law passed by the State of California that requires publishers to provide an "opt-out" solution for users who don't want they data sold. CCPA defines personal information as 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 such as a 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.

We use advertisements, and plugins from third-party vendors who potentially use personal information as defined by CCPA, and GDPR to service, and target consumers using data found on our site when an advertisement's shown.

How To Opt-Out?

Users can simply opt-out of personalised advertising using our convenient Tanizzle Control Centre . The TCC enables users to easily reset their options for advertising as well as plugins - commonly known as widgets. If widgets are affected you will not be able to view YouTube videos, comment on pages, view Instagram posts or Tweets, and further enhancements. For clarity opting out doesn't mean that you will not see ads entirely however, you will not be targeted with personalised ads.

Technologies Used
What do we use?

HTTP COOKIES also known as a web beacon, browser cookie, digital crumb, or simply a cookie is a small text file stored on your device whilst browsing. We use "first-party" cookies that are set by us, and "third-party" cookies that are set by alternative sources. Tanizzle uses additional services that use cookies for both non-personalised, and personalised advertising, analytics, performance, and social media features. Although the idea of having HTTP cookies on devices seems daunting to some, Tanizzle doesn't use "first-party" cookies often, but we do set one named TACT_IX. TACT_IX helps us understand the browsing behaviour of our loyal base, and can be disabled. For clarity TACT_IX isn't used for advertising, and is recommended for security purposes if you have an account with us.

HTML 5 Local Storage allows data to be saved your browser, and is more secure than the HTTP cookie. There are two storage types available to us like session storage that stores data until the user closes the browser, or long term where data's retained even after exiting the browser software. Session storage in layman terms is temporary, and is ideal for short visits. Local storage's permanent until removed, and is ideal for long term users - very useful for our account autologin feature.

Pixels also known as web beacons are small images that collect information about your visit, and can set cookies. The Pixel helps Tanizzle understand how you interact with our Services, devise new content and features; analyse marketing strategies, and importantly better security. The Tanizzle Pixel beacon's mostly implemented in email marketing, and general communications to detect the reach, and engagement of our interests.

Software Development Kit also known as an SDK are code blocks, or plugins provided by our third-party partners. SDKs help us better your experience by allowing you to easily share content, write comments, like and save content; create accounts, login Tanizzle, watch videos, and more. SDKs also monitor the user's browsing behavioural activity, and set cookies. Tanizzle doesn't take responsibility for their actions however, we trust the use of these implementations.

How do we use them?

Functional cookies are imperative in helping us remember your settings and preferences, help identify and prevent security risks. In some instances, the Site will not work properly if they were deleted - logged in users rely on them to stay active.

Performance cookies help us understand how you interact with our Services, and may personalise content for you. These cookies may be a combination of the standard HTTP Cookie, or HTML 5 Storage options as outlined above.

Advertising and Social Media cookies make advertising more personalised for you, and allow convenient methods for sharing content with peers on platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and more. You may notice that YouTube videos by default are not shown until consent's given via the Tanizzle Control panel - take a glimpse of Tanizzle Control on this page .

Your Choices
What can you do?

You have various options to control how we, and our partners use cookies for advertising, performance, social media, and analytics. Most browsers accept cookies by default, and within their settings are options to remove them. We strongly encourage you to enable, or disable preferences within Tanizzle Control.

When in the default state you will not be able to watch YouTube videos, engage with any Facebook widget, view Instagram or Twitter posts, and search the Site as we adopt the Google search bar - in the navigation bar if present, click the icon to see if it's enabled for a quick test.

To prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, you can install Google’s opt-out browser add-on, or access your Google Ads settings to control what data Google uses to show ads to you. For more information on advertising partners, and advertising options learn more about your ad choices .
