Information Teevers Collects
User Provided Information: You provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your name, profile photo and email address) to Teevers when using the App Services.
Cookies Information: When you visit the Website, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Teevers uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Website may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: When you use the App Services, our servers automatically record certain information about your activities related to the usage of the App Services. These server logs may include information such as your username, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, software version and functions of the App Services you are using, date and time of your activity.
How Teevers Uses Information
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the App Services, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the App Services.
Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online may become available to others and can be collected and used by them. Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other Users when you upload videos or send comments through the App Services and other Users can contact you through comments. Any videos that you submit via the App will not be redistributed to any third party sites.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages.
We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the App Services and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
When Teevers Discloses Information
We do not share your personally identifiable information (such as name or email address) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use.
We do share usage data from personally-identifiable student-users with their own teacher-users for the purpose of monitoring the students’ activities to complete a given task, like homework for example.
We also do share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, and/or functionality on the App Services.
We may release personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with Singapore law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the App Services, in which case Teevers may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your personal profile information and email preferences at any time by visiting your account profile page inside the App Services. Please note that media files uploaded by Users to the App Services can be removed at any time by Users or by teacher-users if those files belong to their own student-users.
To protect your privacy and security, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. You may change your password at any time if you feel it has been compromised.

Teevers does not provide any personally identifiable information to any third-party sites.
Teevers’s Commitment To Data Security
Teevers uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Teevers through its App Services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Teevers makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If Teevers learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Teevers may post a notice on the Website if a security breach occurs.
