Sorc'd Privacy Policy

Sorc'd Privacy Policy

SORC'D allows its users to instantly save, share, and discover information that's important to them. Any registered user can post to SORC'D, which is a post of 450 characters or less and is public by default.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when SORC'D collects, uses and shares your information when you use our Services. SORC'D receives your information through our various websites, SMS, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, widgets, and ads (the "Services" or "SORC'D") and from our partners and other third parties. For example, you send us information when you use SORC'D from our website. When using any of our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Irrespective of which country you reside in or supply information from, you authorize SORC'D to use your information in the United States and any other country where SORC'D operates.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at

Information Collection and Use

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a SORC'D account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page, in the SORC'D timeline, and in search results.

Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide information to customize your account, such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS messages. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may use your Account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from SORC'D. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your SORC'D account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may choose to upload your address book so that we can help you find SORC'D users you know. We may later suggest people to follow on SORC'D based on your imported address book contacts, which you can delete from SORC'D at any time. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your SORC'D account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between SORC'D and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting and helps us improve the Services.

Posts, Following, and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the messages you Post and the metadata provided with Posts, such as when you Posted, but also the categories you create, the people you follow, the Posts you mark as reliable via the upward green arrow or RePost, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from SORC'D. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your public user profile information and public Posts may be searchable by search engines and are immediately delivered via SMS and our APIs to a wide range of users and services. When you share information or content and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

Links: SORC'D may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or categories. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. SORC'D may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.

Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your SORC'D account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a SORC'D button or widget. SORC'D uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customize, and improve them. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.

Widget Data: We may tailor content for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate SORC'D buttons or widgets. When these websites first load our buttons or widgets for display, we receive Log Data, including the web page you visited and a cookie that identifies your browser ("Widget Data"). While we have the Widget Data, we may use it to tailor content for you, such as suggestions for people to follow on SORC'D. Tailored content is stored with only your browser cookie ID and is separated from other Widget Data such as page-visit information. This feature is optional and not yet available to all users. For Posts, Log Data, and other information that we receive from interactions with SORC'D buttons or widgets, please see the other sections of this Privacy Policy.

Third-Parties: SORC'D uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure ad quality and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your SORC'D account.

Service Providers: We engage service providers to perform functions and provide services to us in the United States and abroad. We may share your private personal information with such service providers subject to confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions.

Law and Harm: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect the rights or property of SORC'D. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

Business Transfers: In the event that SORC'D is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your public user profile information, public Posts, the people you follow or that follow you, or the number of users who clicked on a particular link.
