Your privacy is critically important to us. At ManageYourMembers, we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles. 

Who We Are and What This Privacy Policy Covers

We refer to ManageYourMembers Ltd (a company incorporated under the number 13367465, as “ManageYourMembers” or “we” throughout this Privacy Policy.

ManageYourMembers Platform is membership bot platform designed to allow anyone – from bloggers, to podcasters, small business owners, and enterprises – to build and manage membership bots for Telegram. These membership bots allow charging a subscription fee in order to access private Telegram channels and supergroups. Our mission is to democratize publishing and community management.

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use:

Throughout this Privacy Policy we’ll refer to our website and Telegram bots collectively as “Services”.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our products or services that have a separate privacy policy. Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so, for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you or to make our Services better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.

Sharing Information

How We Share Information

We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your membership bot name, URL and description, set of subscription plans with names, prices and list of included benefits, are all available to others. Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

How Long We Keep Information

We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks. To enhance the security of your account, we encourage you to enable advanced security settings, like Two Step Authentication in Telegram.

Choices

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

Your Rights

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation, data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including:

Before we process any request, we may ask you for certain information in order to verify your identity. Where permitted by local law, we may reject requests that are unreasonable or impractical. We will respond to your requests in a reasonable timeframe. You can usually access, correct or delete your personal data using your account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that, or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, scroll down to How to Reach Us to, well, find out how to reach us.

Other Things You Should Know

Transferring Information

Because ManageYourMembers’s Services are offered worldwide, the information about you that we process when you use the Services in the EU may be used, stored and/or accessed by individuals operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who work for us, other members of our group of companies, or third party data processors. This is required for the purposes listed in the How and Why We Use Information section above. When providing information about you to entities outside the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient understands the necessity to process your personal data only on legal basis and protects your personal information adequately in accordance with this Privacy Policy as required by applicable law. These measures include:

You can ask us for more information about the steps we take to protect your personal information when transferring it from the EU.

Ads and Analytics Services Provided by Others

Ads appearing on any of our Services may be delivered by advertising networks. Other parties may also provide analytics services via our Services. These ad networks and analytics providers may set tracking technologies (like cookies) to collect information about your use of our Services and across other websites and online services. These technologies allow these third parties to recognize your device to compile information about you or others who use your device. This information allows us and other companies to, among other things, analyse and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content, and deliver advertisements that may be more targeted to your interests. Please note this Privacy Policy only covers the collection of information by ManageYourMembers and does not cover the collection of information by any third party advertisers or analytics providers.

Third Parties

Please note that ManageYourMembers uses some 3-rd party software and services. We don’t own or control these third parties and they have their own rules about collection, use and sharing of information, which you should review.

Visitors to Our User`s Membership Bots

We also process information about visitors, customers and clients of our users’ membership bots, on behalf of our users. Please note that our processing of that information on behalf of our users for their membership bots isn’t covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage our users to post a privacy policy that accurately describes their practices on data collection, use and sharing of personal information. In this situation our users are controllers and determine the personal data shall be processed and purposes of the processing. Our user shall take appropriate measures to process of its customers’ personal data only on legal basis and protect personal information adequately in accordance with applicable law.

Children

Protecting children’s privacy is extremely important. Our Services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect or process any personal information from or with respect to children under 16. Through our Services, children will be able to receive local in-app notifications, which do not collect any personal information.

We will: (1) not ask children to input their personal information, (2) collect certain information for limited purposes only (consistent with applicable law), (3) block or restrict the child from accessing relevant services, if applicable.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, ManageYourMembers may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. ManageYourMembers encourages you to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on this page ManageYourMembers.com/privacy.
