How Instaright Works
The Instaright website and Firefox addon enable you to send links to 3rd party services ( Instapaper ... ) and get entertainment recommendations based on links you added to 3rd party services, what your friends like and what‚Äôs popular now. The Instaright software saves the items that you send to 3rd party services ( Instapaper ... ) and recommends to you other things that you may be interested in. You can share your opinion and leave a comment, posting information to be displayed publicly under your user name. You can get free stickers and, from time to time, additional offers and rewards.
Personal information collected by Instaright is information voluntarily provided to us by you when you download Firefox addon or create account. Currently, information that we save about you includes your user id and supplements information with information available online based on user id.
Instaright stores links you send to 3rd party services ( ie. Instapaper ... ) and comments that you provide us with.
Information collected about your Internet usage and information you post, is displayed to the public, together with your chosen user name, according to the user account settings selected by you when you join Instaright or update your account. Your profile by default is visible on the Instaright website.
The only way for third party applications or services to access your information is by you giving them explicit permission to do so. When you give permission to share your information with other websites (eg., when you agree to a pop up requesting you to allow another application to access your account information), Instaright uses standard OAuth (open authorization) technology to allow us to share information about you that is stored by us without sharing your security credentials. You only authenticate on our site. The only way a third party is permitted to access your info is by using standard OAuth protocol.
We will also use your personal information to contact you from time to time by email: regarding updates to our policies and to Instaright software; to promote certain services; to provide you stickers or other rewards or information about how to obtain them. The Instaright service includes a weekly digest of new activity. Currently, you may not elect to turn off the digest. You may choose to unsubscribe from our emails by using the ‚Äúunsubscribe‚Äù link on the bottom of the email.
Your information will be accessed by Instaright employees as necessary to provide customer support and troubleshoot problems.
We may also release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, to enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements, or to protect the rights of Instaright or others. Your personal information is, of course, subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders.
When you provide us with your email, mailing address or other personal information, these are stored in our secure database in encrypted format. When your personal information is sent between the web browser and the server, it is also encrypted using modern encryption standards in order prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information while it is being transferred.
Your credentials are never shared with any Instaright partners; you only authenticate on the Instaright site or Firefox addon.
