You should appreciate that all information submitted on the Website might potentially be publicly accessible. Important and private information should be protected by you. We are not responsible for protecting, nor are we liable for failing to protect, the privacy of electronic mail or other information transferred through the Internet or any other network that you may utilize.
Information You Provide. When you register or subscribe to any of our Services, we may collect a variety of information, including your full name, birthdate, sex, location, age, photographs, email address, and demographic information you provide. We collect information necessary to enable certain features in MixChats and to inform other users of your background. When clicking “Allow,” you agree to make public with other MixChats users your gender, sex, full name and location under the Facebook API. We do not sell, rent or trade any personally identifiable information you provide to third parties when using the MixChats software. The content of your video and text conversations are not stored in our system. MixChats stores your data from your Facebook account following your registration and granted permission. The data is encrypted. We also collect other profile data such as your personal interests and background, gender, age, geographical location and physical characteristics and any content or other communications you provide or make in connection with your use of the Services. We obtain information from Facebook.
Information Automatically Collected. When you access our services, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, platform type, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website, date and time stamp and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account. We also collect information about your usage of, and activity on, our services. We may associate information we automatically collect with your personal information. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics, use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer our Services, to gather demographic information about our user base and to deliver you a more personalized experience.
We, our service providers, advertisers and partners may collect various types of non-personal identifiable information when you visit the website. When you visit the MixChats website, we may place a small text file-called a "cookie"-on your computer that allows us to improve the quality of our service, and to store your preferences and settings. Importantly, a cookie does not allow us to obtain any personally identifiable information (such as your real name or address). The search feature sends a request to our servers while processing a search query that you have inputted. This request includes the keyword query, source (Toolbar, IE bar, related links, etc.) and all HTTP data transferred automatically by the browser (IP Address, User Agent, Cookies, etc…). We use this information in order to properly process your search request. In this case, we are provided with data which includes your geographical location. Such information is recorded on a non-personally identifiable basis and is kept strictly anonymous. Examples of the information we may collect include: current Internet protocol address and the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the type of handheld or mobile device used to view the website (e.g., iPhone, Blackberry). By using the MixChats platform, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to gather information about your use of the website through these information gathering technologies.
If you choose to uninstall MixChats, MixChats maintains the right to keep your personal data (such as email address, full name, birthdate, age and gender) in its database.
If any of the web sites or the software is ever sold or all or substantially all of the assets relating to a web site or the software are transferred to another entity, we may transfer all information provided by or collected from you, including personally identifiable information, in order to ensure continuity of your service. We will disclose information, including personally identifiable information, data acquired by cookies, and other data, where required by a subpoena, interception order or other lawful process. We also reserve the right to disclose such information when we believe, in our sole judgment and to the extent consistent with applicable law, that such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights or safety of others or to enforce, or protect our rights under, this agreement.
Certain areas of the website as well as third-party websites linked to or accessible from this website may have different privacy policies and practices.

You should review these other privacy policies carefully in order to determine how each third party may use any information you provide or contact us with a request for the identification of such third parties.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you. When communicating with other users, you should:
Although MixChats users must login with their Facebook account, and therefore provide their identifiable information, MIXCHATS DOES NOT ROUTINELY SCREEN ITS USERS, INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF OUR USERS, ATTEMPT TO VERIFY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY FACEBOOK USERS OR CONDUCT CRIMINAL SCREENINGS OF OUR USERS. We believe that providing background checks would lead to a false sense of security since databases of criminal convictions may not be up to date, not all convictions appear in background screenings and criminals may circumvent even the most sophisticated background screenings.
MixChats does not encourage users to meet in person. However, on the instance that this occurs, we advise users to take the following safety precautions:
If you suspect a user is trying to scam you, we encourage you to stop the communication and block them by clicking on the "Block" button in the MixChats video chat window. Always remember to use your head. Oftentimes scams involve one or more of the following:
We also encourage you to “block” any users that are or provide obscene, pornographic, abusive, violent or otherwise offensive photos or content. Simply click on the "Block” button within the MixChats video chat box to block a user.
MIXCHATS STRONGLY ADVISES YOU TO USE EXTREME CAUTION BEFORE SHARING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WITH OTHER USERS OF THIS PLATFORM. Your safety and security are very important to us. The nature of this platform promotes the sharing of personal information by users with other users. MixChats. cannot and does not assure that it is safe for you to have direct contact with other users of this Website. Current technological developments make it possible for users of the Internet to obtain personal information about, and locate, other users, with very little other information. For example, it is possible to use certain widely available commercial Internet search engines to locate a person’s home solely using that person’s correct name. If you believe that any user of this Website is harassing you or is otherwise using personal information about you for unlawful purposes, we encourage you to first inform local law enforcement authorities and then to contact us via our Contact Us page so that we may take appropriate action to block further use of the platform by any user who is using this platform and information obtained from it for improper purposes.
By accessing this website, you agree to use any personal information provided to you by other users of this Website in a lawful and responsible manner. You further agree that you will not use personal information about other users of this Website for any reason without the express prior consent of the user that has provided such information to you.
