Privacy Policy

Winksite respects your privacy and has instituted this Privacy Policy to protect you. Please read on to learn how we collect and use information obtained from this web site.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy or the Terms of Service, feel free to contact us at


Account identifying information is any information that can be used to identify and contact you, including your e-mail address, full name, and telephone numbers (what we call your "Account Information"). When you register to use Winksite, we ask for this Account Information. We also ask for your date of birth, gender, carrier service provider and zip code. We use your Account Information to manage your account and to provide you with the Winksite Services. Therefore, when you register as a member of Winksite, we ask for your honest responses to this information, and you represent that your responses are correct and accurate, so that we can serve you more efficiently and effectively.

A cell phone number and carrier service provider is only required if you want messages sent to your mobile phone. As with your other Account Information, we use your cell phone number only for the purposes of delivering Winksite's services to you. To be clear, all Account Information is kept private.

We also ask for optional Profile Information including your photo, tagline, profile, metro, and various personal interests such as your taste in music. Unlike Account Information, this information may be entered into your personal profile page and may be accessed by other Winksite members. You are not required to give us this information.

We use your Account Information in order to manage your account and to deliver the Winksite Services. We also use your Account Information in order to help us customize and enrich your Winksite experience by allowing us to send Group, Club, and other Winksite related information, as well as new features, announcements and advertisements to you based upon your interests. While you are receiving information directly to your account, advertisers never see or have access to your Account Information.

To enhance your experience with Winksite support, we may at times ask for additional information about your computer system, usage habits, or other personal information. That information is not required and will not be shared outside of Winksite.

In order to provide you with thorough and personalized service, Winksite uses "cookies" to keep and occasionally track information about you. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Winksite sometimes uses cookies to track information for our users' convenience and to understand our customers better. The cookies that are gathered by Winksite are only used by Winksite. At no time do we share information from cookies with third parties.

Links to Other Sites
Please note that you could be directed to another site while using Winksite. When you link to another site, you should review their privacy policy, as it may be different from our Privacy Policy. Such sites may send their own cookies to users and otherwise collect data or solicit personal information. Winksite is not responsible, and shall not be liable, for the privacy practices of linked sites or any use such sites may make of any information collected from you. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Winksite.

Children should not submit any Account Information without the permission of their parents or guardians. Winksite encourages all parents or guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their Account Information while using the Internet. Winksite will not allow children under the age of 14 to use the web site.


Profile Page
Winksite publishes a Member Profile or "M-Card/ID Card" (profile/contact information) that is accessible to other Winksite members. Your user profile tells other members a little about you and the mobile sites you have built at Winksite. Other identity and contact information can be published (i.e. first name, last name, e-mail address and country) if you choose. You may, however, modify your M-Card to make anything but your username private.

New Subscribers From Our Linking Client Sites
If you are not already a member of Winksite and were directed to a Winksite Client Page from a link on that Client's web site, we may share Account Information and/or Profile Information with the linking Client. In these instances, we will inform you, before you give us any Account Information and/or Profile Information or complete the registration process, that we share this information with the linking Client. We may also include a link to the linking Client's privacy policy. Because our linking Clients may have different privacy policies than Winksite, and Winksite has no control over the linking Clients, we encourage you to read the Client's privacy policy before you decide whether or not to continue the registration process. By completing the registration process, you acknowledge and agree that Winksite is not responsible, and shall not be liable, for the practices of any linking Client site or any use such linking Client may make of your Account Information or Profile Information. If you do not want us to share your data with the linking Client, your only option is to choose not to register during a visit to Winksite directly from a linking Client. Similarly, you will be solely responsible for any information you choose to disclose to such third parties.

Newsletters, Contests and Other Information from Clients
When you sign up to receive alerts and other information from one of our Clients, you may opt-in to receive newsletters, sign up for contests, or receive additional information directly from that Client as well. If you opt-in to receive such additional content directly from the Client, you grant us permission to share your Account Information and Profile Information with them. Because Clients may have different privacy policies than Winksite, and Winksite has no control over its Clients, we encourage you to read the Client's privacy policy before you decide whether or not to opt-in to receive additional content. By opting-in to receive additional content directly from a Client, you acknowledge and agree that Winksite is not responsible, and shall not be liable, for the practices of any Client or any use such Client may make of your Account Information or Profile Information. If you do not want us to share your data with the Client, you should not opt-in to receive additional content from a Client.

Business Transfers
Winksite does not sell, rent or disclose any of your Account Information with third parties without first asking your consent to do so. However, in the event that Winksite or substantially all of its assets are acquired, Winksite may transfer your Account Information and Profile Information without your prior notification or consent as one of the transferred business assets.

When Required by Law
Winksite releases Account Information and/or Profile Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with laws; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Winksite, our users, or others.

Aggregate Data
When you access, our server automatically collects certain information that is not personally identifiable, such as your IP address, pages viewed, and length of time spent on the web site. We collect and use this information, in the aggregate only, to diagnose problems with our server, to improve and to provide content of interest to you. We also give Clients access to aggregate data about our users and their use of the Winksite Services during user sessions. The information we share will not include Account Information, but may include Profile Information.

A Note About Groups and Public Forums
Winksite gives you the opportunity to create and send messages to other Winksite members. Please remember that the messages you send out are publicly available. We encourage you to be careful and not to publish any Account or Personal Information in messages you send out. Always keep in mind that any information you disclose on the Internet or through the Winksite Services (through e-mail, SMS, MMS, IM voice messages, notes, surveys, guestbooks, journals, message boards or chat groups) is public and can be read by others. Also, whenever you send messages through the Internet or through the Winksite Services, there is a risk that your personally identifying information can be collected by a third party, resulting in unsolicited e-mail messages or advertisements.

Winksite takes precautions to ensure the security of your Account Information and strives to keep it accurate. However, we cannot guarantee that hackers or unauthorized personnel may gain access to your Account Information despite our efforts.


You have the ability and the right to review and update your Account Information and/or Profile Information at anytime except for your username, which you cannot change. To do so, log in to your account, go to "Dashboard" on your Start Page and click on the "My Account" and the "My Profile" link. This will take you to the screens where you can change your contact/identity information, profile and settings.

Turn Off Message Delivery
If you wish to turn off all message delivery from Winksite, please contact us by sending an e-mail to


By using this Site you consent to the collection and use of information about you in the ways described in this Privacy Policy. Winksite reserves the right to update and amend this Privacy Policy from time to time to remain consistent with new products, services, processes and Internet privacy legislation. We will post changes to the Privacy Policy on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. The amended Privacy Policy shall automatically be effective five (5) days after they are initially posted on the web site. Your continued use of the Services after the effective date of any posted change constitutes your acceptance of the amended Privacy Policy as modified by the posted changes. For this reason, we encourage you to review this Privacy Policy whenever you use the Services. The last date this Privacy Policy was revised is set forth below.
