1.   Acceptance of Terms

By using the website www.SomeoneShouldTellYou.com (including all the areas available through such website, collectively, the “Site”) and/or using the various anonymous professional messaging services (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications,  together with the Site, the “Services”) offered by Village View Ventures, LLC, a Texas limited liability company, (together with its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors – collectively “SomeoneShouldTellYou.com,” “we,” “us,” and/or “our”), in any manner, you, the user (collectively “Users,” or “you”), acknowledge and agree to these legally binding Terms. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and all other operating rules, policies, and procedures that may be published on the Services by SomeoneShouldTellYou.com, which are incorporated by reference.  Our Privacy Policy, which describes how we collect and use information from our Users, is available at https://www.SomeoneShouldTellYou.com/privacy-policy (“Privacy Policy”).

You agree to use the Services only for lawful purposes, and that you are responsible for your use of the Services and communications with us, all of which must comply with these Terms. You agree not to use the Services in any manner that interferes with its normal operation or with any other user’s use and enjoyment of the Services.

2.  Services

Description of Services

You may view Content (as further defined below) on the Site for free, but as a condition of using certain aspects of the Services, including sending a professionally worded anonymous email (“Message”) to an intended recipient (“Recipient”), you are required to pay a fee.

Each time that you would like to send a Message, you will have the opportunity to make the payment as a guest through the Services without needing to sign up for an account. Each Message is subject to these terms and conditions.

After payment is made and submit your Message through SomeoneShouldTellYou.com, SomeoneShouldTellYou.com may re-phrase your original message to make the message concise, constructive, and/or less identifiable by changing the writing content, voice, and/or tone of the message. SomeoneShouldTellYou.com also reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to send the Message exactly as submitted.

SomeoneShouldTellYou.com warrants that the SomeoneShouldTellYou.com representative who reviews and edits your Message will be an experienced manager having work experience as a manager in a US corporation or organization.

Upon request, SomeoneShouldTellYou.com can verify that your message has been sent to, but not whether the message has been received or read by, the Recipient. To receive verification that your message has been sent, SomeoneShouldTellYou.com will have to respond to your inputted email account. SomeoneShouldTellYou.com advises that you do not list you a work-related email address for delivery verification.

Limitations

SomeoneShouldTellYou.com reserves the right not to forward any message that we, in our sole discretion, determine to be inappropriate.  Inappropriate Messages will be those we consider to be threatening, derogatory, inflammatory, offensive, harassing, mean spirited, not constructive, attacking, discriminatory, or vulgar.  Rejection of an inappropriate message by SomeoneShouldTellYou.com will not serve as a basis to demand a refund of any prepaid fees.

SomeoneShouldTellYou.com makes no representation nor can it guarantee that the Recipient will receive your Message.  Variables like spam blockers and firewalls may intercept your message and prevent delivery.  These obstacles are out of our control and SomeoneShouldTellYou.com will never be able to absolutely verify receipt. Undelivered or unread Messages shall not serve as a basis to demand a refund of any prepaid fees.

SomeoneShouldTellYou.com advises that you never send a Message from a work-related email address or from any Recipient owned or accessible devices (company owned devices).

Complaints and Abuse

If you are a Recipient and feel that the Message received is abusive or otherwise violates these terms, you may report this issue to support@SomeoneShouldTellYou.com.

Modifications to Service

SomeoneShouldTellYou.com reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Services (including, but not limited to, the availability of any feature, database, or Content), whether temporarily or permanently at any time for any reason. You agree that SomeoneShouldTellYou.com shall not be liable to your or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services. SomeoneShouldTellYou.com may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability.

Availability of the Services

You acknowledge that there may be interruptions in service or events that are beyond our control. While we use reasonable efforts to keep the Services accessible, the Services may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance. You further understand that there may be interruptions in service or events on third-party sites that may affect your use of the Services and that are beyond our control to prevent or correct. Interruptions in the Services that are beyond our control shall not serve as a basis to demand a full or partial refund of any prepaid fees.

Privacy Policy- SomeoneShouldTellYou.com™ 

The website located at www.SomeoneShouldTellYou.com (“Site”) and all related services offered through are products of Village View Ventures, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“V3,” “we,” or “us”). We take your privacy very seriously. How we will handle information we learn about you depends upon what you do when using one of our services or Sites (“Services”). Our platform allows you (“User” or “you”) to send anonymous messages to your intended recipient (“Recipient”). We strive to make all choices you make while using our service as transparent as possible. We also hold the security of your personal information as our top priority. This policy (“Privacy Policy”) will cover personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other information that may or may not be anonymous that you provide us through use of our services or websites. All other information given to us is outside the scope of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy will explain what information is collected, how that information is used and/or shared, how the information is protected, and how you can control your privacy while using the service. We reserve the right to make changes to this policy at any time and will update these terms on our Site when we do so.

Terms not defined within this Privacy Policy are defined in the SomeoneShouldTellYou.com Terms of Service.

 

Information V3 Collects

In administering the Services, V3 may collect from you, Personal Information and non-Personal Information. Personal Information is information, that by its very nature, can be tracked back to you (“Personal Information”). Some example of this type of information includes your name, address, phone number, email address, social security number, and driver license number. Non-Personal Information, on the other hand, is information that is considered insufficient to be able linked back to the original User.

Personal Information Provided to V3 by Users

You may provide Personal Information including, but not limited to, your name and email address, when you send a message through the Service.

Information Automatically Collected by V3

Like other websites, we also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Services. We may collect information about your visit from the browser on your computer or mobile device including but not limited to the time and date you access the Services, your geographic location, IP address, device information, cookies and the pages you request — to analyze trends, administer the Services, track navigation of the site, deliver relevant advertisements and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use (note that IP addresses are not linked to Personal Information). We use this information to improve understanding of customer needs and provide relevant services. To automatically collect information, we use various technologies including:

Cookies. Cookies are small data files that a website you visit may save on your hard drive that usually includes an anonymous unique identifier. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses the Services. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), the Services will not be able to ascertain the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user’s computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your e-mail address. The Services use cookies for user authentication, keeping track of your preferences, promotional campaigns that require user identification, keeping track of our audience size and traffic patterns, and in certain other cases. You can configure your browser to accept cookies, reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being used; however, if you do so it may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of the Services. Cookies allow us to provide better security on the Services, to customize the content, to track purchases, and to keep the Services working properly.

Pixel Tags. We use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons or Web bugs). Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive or web browser, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send email messages in a format that users can read, and tell us whether emails have been opened to, in part, ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may also use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.

Log File Information. When you use V3, our servers may automatically record certain information that your device sends whenever you visit any website and use certain apps. These server logs may include information such as your web or app request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

Third Party Analytics. We may use a number of third party service providers, such as Google Analytics, to help analyze how users use our services (“Analytics Companies“). These Analytics Companies use Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit our Site, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our Services. We use the information we get from Analytics Companies only to improve our Site and Services.

 

How We Use Your Data

We will use the information you provide to us for a variety of purposes, including to:

  • confirm that we have received your message so that we may send it to the Recipient;
  • contact you for customer service requests,
  • contact you regarding payment issues,
  • operate, improve and maintain our products and services, including analyzing user behavior,
  • provide features and display relevant content to you,
  • track and monitor web traffic,
  • track your response and behavior on the Services,
  • interact with support and feedback platforms,
  • manage support and contact requests,
  • tailor and optimize advertising, and
  • to implement SPAM protection.

 

How We May Share Your Information

We will not share your information with your Recipient.

We don’t give your Personal Information to any third-party services, except when it’s necessary to provide services (like when we partner with payment processors or other data services). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the Services, we require that they protect your Personal Information to the same standards we do. We do reserve the right to disclose Personal Information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect our legal rights.

Please see below for how we may share your Personal and non-Personal Information.

 

Sharing of Personal Information

When you send information to the Services, you are granting us permission to use and take other actions regarding such information, to provide the Services. We do not share, sell, rent or otherwise distribute this information to others, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We may share your information with third parties outside of V3 under the following circumstances:

1)     With Your Consent: We may share information when you provide us with your consent to do so. This may occur when you consent affirmatively or it may occur through your use of the Services as provided in this Privacy Policy.

2)     Service Providers and Contractors: We reserve the right to disclose to service providers, contractors, or other third parties any or all of the information that we collect online about you and other visitors to conduct business on our behalf. These activities could include processing payments, maintaining the Site, or facilitating email delivery to you. We require that our service providers protect your Personal Information with the same standards we do but we are not responsible for their policies or practices.

3)     By Law or to Protect Rights: We may disclose information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce our intellectual property rights, to enforce our Terms of Service, or to protect the rights, property or safety of V3 and our employees, and if necessary to defend against third-party claims. We may also disclose information when requested to comply with a court order, investigation, or governmental request.

4)     Business Transfers: If we go through a business transfer, such as consolidation, merger, restructuring, acquisition, or sale of part or all of our assets, you acknowledge and consent to the transfer of your information. You further acknowledge and consent to the continued use of your information by the recipient so long as they comply with this Privacy Policy.

Please bear in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your Personal Information available for viewing by third parties online – for example through comments and participation in forums or through email – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

 

Sharing of Non-Personal Information and Aggregate Data

V3 may share with third parties non-Personal Information and related aggregated data for any legitimate business purposes, including for reporting, research, or advertising. For example, we may share general information about how many Users sent messages in a given time frame, how many Users sent messages within a geographic region, or the average length of a message. Because this form of data does not identify particular users, these third parties will not be able to contact you based solely on this data. 

 

How We Protect All of Our Data

All information submitted to V3 will be stored on our servers. We will use industry standard measures, including encryption where appropriate. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures we implement may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.

By using the Services or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Services. If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on the Services or sending an email to you. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), please contact us at the address below.

 

How You Can Control the Information We Collect, Use and Share

If you share information with us, you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided to us (and that we continue to store) at any time through your profile settings. You can also stop receiving emails from us or disable your account to prevent any future purchases through that account. Please contact us directly at support@SomeoneShouldTellYou.com to effect changes or click on the “unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of marketing emails you may receive from us.

On request, we will give you a copy of all the Personal Information about you that we hold. This information is subject to a fee not exceeding the prescribed fee permitted by law.

We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons. We are under no obligation to destroy anonymized aggregate data.

Regardless of your choices regarding promotional communications and updates regarding content, we may send you administrative messages, service announcements, terms and conditions of your account, or other similar communications, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.

Our computer systems for the Services are currently governed by and operated in the United States, so your personal data will be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. V3 makes no representation that the Services is governed by or operated in accordance with the laws of any other nation. If you are a visitor from outside the United States, by using the Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection of that required in the European Union or other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

V3 reserves the right to store this information in and outside of the United States and in locations not under our direct control (for example, co­located server facilities).

 

Changes and Updates

From time to time, we may change this Privacy Policy. To ensure that you are familiar with our most updated policies and practices, you should check the effective date indicated at the end of this Privacy Policy each time you use the Services. If we make any significant changes, we will notify you of such changes by posting the updated Privacy Policy on the Services. We may also send you an email alerting you of such changes. You will be bound by any such changes to the Privacy Policy when you use the Services after those changes have been posted. If we make material revisions concern practices where we have represented we will obtain your consent to use or disclose your Personal Information, we will obtain your consent before taking any action inconsistent with those representations.
