AskForIt.com Privacy Policy

Our full privacy policy is below, but for those who don’t like to read through legal copy, we’ve provided a brief summary to answer the certain concerns most people have.


What information do we collect?

We collect information from Facebook when you register with us using your Facebook account. We receive and retain your Facebook ID, email address, your friends list, and other information that you have displayed and made available to Facebook as "public information". Facebook defines public information (as of December 20, 2010) as the following:

"Any content that is available to "everyone" is considered public information. To help real-world friends find you, your name, profile picture, gender, username and networks are always open to everyone. In addition, any information you choose to share using an "Everyone" control setting will be considered public information. You always can choose to share your content with as small or large of an audience as you want. Learn more about controlling how you share on Facebook by visiting the Facebook Privacy Guide."


Why do we collect this information?

Email

We collect your email address so that we can contact you about the things you want (those things you explicitly request by clicking on the “Ask For It” button) and about general updates to the Ask For It platform.  It’s our intent to only email you when you have requested we do so. This will generally occur relative to your Ask For It requests (“Asks”).  We want to help you get what you want, so we will take care to ensure that when you hear from us it will be relevant!  Our whole business model is founded on this premise - you getting heard and us helping you get heard and getting what you want.

Facebook ID and Facebook Friends

We collect your Facebook ID so that we can verify you’re a real person and also so that we can help you use our tools with your Facebook account to add more voices to your requests. THE MORE VOICES YOU HAVE, THE MORE POWER YOUR ASKS HAVE.  We collect who your friends are so that we can show you which of your friends have also asked for things you have.  We won’t be contacting your friends who are not registered with Ask For It, but it’s cool to know if you and your community of friends want the same thing.  If you don’t want your Facebook friends to see the things you have asked for when they visit the Ask For It site, you can turn off this feature.


Will we sell or give away your personal information?

No. The information you give us stays in our protected databases. If we are ever acquired or controlled by another company or person, the acquiring or controlling party will have to sign an agreement that says that they are not to use information in any other way but what is consistent with the privacy policy, unless they first receive your consent to do otherwise.
