Pretzil knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take these matters very seriously. The following document will outline how we gather your personal data, and what we do with it, so you can rest assured that whatever personal information you give us is in safe hands.

By creating a Pretzil account, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this document. We thank you for your patronage, and are willing to work with you on making the community the best it can be.


This Privacy Policy covers Pretzil's treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that Pretzil gathers when you are accessing our site or an application that uses the Pretzil services. The policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Pretzil does not own or control, or to individuals that Pretzil does not employ or manage. In addition, the Service contains links to outside sources, ones we have added ourselves and ones that members have submitted. While we attempt to provide links only to those sites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those sites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any web sites you visit.


The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our customers.

Personal Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your user name, locale, email address, IP address, use information, browser information geographic location and account information from other social media services. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the content of the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.

Personal Information Collected Automatically:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our service or services. Pretzil automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, and the page you requested.

Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Pretzil only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Service or services so that we can make the Service appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Pretzil never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.


When a child under the age of 13 registers as a Pretzil member, we will collect that child's email address and whatever personal information they opt to enter in their profile page. We will use the child's e-mail address only for the purpose for which it was collected. While we do not make any specific arrangements for children under the age of 13, we are happy to work with the parents or guardians of that child to reveal all the personal information we have collected on that user. We will also provide information as to how the parent or guardian of the child can review and request deletion of the child's personal information, and how to prevent further collection and use of personal information concerning the child.

As a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 from whom we have collected personal information, you have the right to review and have deleted such personal information, and to refuse to permit further collection or use of such information. To do so, you should contact us at info@pretzil.com. Parents and guardians who wish to review personal information concerning their children will be required to specify the usernames and passwords of the children concerned, and to provide their own e-mail address for verification and contact purposes.

We cannot and will not establish conditions that will require or encourage children to disclose personal information over and above what is reasonably necessary to participate in any activity features on our web sites.

Children under 13 years of age are allowed to participate in contests. However, if such a child wins, we will not ask the child for any personal information beyond what is available to us from their Pretzil account without obtaining prior parental consent.

If any activity featured on Pretzil will allow children under the age of 13 to reveal personal information publicly (for example, via un-moderated chat rooms or bulletin boards), we will moderate, monitor and screen said information if we feel it compromises the child's safety.


Your Pretzil account Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security.

Should you ever decide to delete your Pretzil account, you may do so by contacting our site administrator at info@pretzil.com, or you could change your privacy settings so your profile cannot be viewed by anyone but yourself. If you terminate your account, your profile, including any messages in your inbox and any promotional offers you received, will be removed from the site and deleted from Pretzil servers. Because of the way we maintain Pretzil, such deletion may not be immediate, and residual copies of your profile information or posts may remain on backup media.


Pretzil may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on our Service or sending you an email. Users are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Service after such changes have been first posted.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy using the Service, please send us a detailed message to info@pretzil.com. We will make every effort to resolve your concerns.
