-
3  
-The intent of this document is to clarify what we consider to be acceptable
4  
-use of Tumblr.
5  
-
6  
-If you are found to be in violation of any of the below policies, you will
7  
-receive a notice via email. Unless you explain or correct your behavior
8  
-within 72 hours, your account will be suspended. We will do our best to
9  
-work with you and ensure a fair outcome in all cases. We reserve the right
10  
-to immediately suspend, without notice, any content, account, or IP address
11  
-which we determine to be systematically generated, spam, or potentially
12  
-damaging to our service or infrastructure.
13  
-
14  
-When your account is suspended, public access to your content is blocked,
15  
-and your Tumblr URL (and custom domain if applicable) is redirected to the
16  
-Tumblr home page. Access to your Tumblr Dashboard and the ability to
17  
-add/edit posts is also disabled.
18  
-
19  
-• REDUNDANT CONTENT. Tumblr is not intended to be an all-purpose content
20  
-  aggregator. Users who import or aggregate content in a less-than-meaningful
21  
-  way are likely to be suspended.
22  
-
23  
-• ILLEGAL USE. Tumblr may not be used for illegal purposes. Examples of this
24  
-  include using Tumblr for fraudulent purposes or operating a phishing site
25  
-  (used to obtain account and password information).
26  
-
27  
-• SPAM. Users that do not publish meaningful content, use deceptive means to
28  
-  generate revenue or traffic, or whose primary purpose is affiliate
29  
-  marketing, will be suspended.
30  
-
31  
-• IDENTITY THEFT AND PRIVACY. Users that misleadingly appropriate the
32  
-  identity of another person are not permitted. Users may not post other
33  
-  people's personally identifying or confidential information, including but
34  
-  not limited to credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, and driver's
35  
-  and other license numbers. You may not post information such as other
36  
-  people's passwords, usernames, phone numbers, addresses and e-mail
37  
-  addresses unless already publicly accessible on the Web.
38  
-
39  
-• HATE CONTENT, DEFAMATION, AND LIBEL. Hate speech and other objectionable
40  
-  content that is unlawful, defamatory, and fraudulent. Note that an
41  
-  allegation of defamatory expression, in and of itself, does not establish
42  
-  defamation. The truth or falsehood of a bit of expression is a key element
43  
-  in establishing defamation, and we are not in a position to make that sort
44  
-  of fact-based judgment. That said, if we have reason to believe that a
45  
-  particular statement is defamatory (a court order, for example), we will
46  
-  remove that statement.
47  
-
48  
-• DISRUPTIONS AND EXPLOITS. We will terminate accounts and block addresses of
49  
-  those who attempt unauthorized use of Tumblr.com.
50  
-
51  
-• COPYRIGHT. Using copyrighted material does not constitute infringement in
52  
-  all cases. In general, however, users should be careful when using
53  
-  copyrighted content without the permission of those who created it. It is
54  
-  our policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with
55  
-  the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA").
56  
-
57  
-• MASS REGISTRATION AND AUTOMATION. Accounts that are registered
58  
-  automatically or systematically will be removed and access will be
59  
-  permanently suspended.
60  
-
61  
-• SEXUALLY EXPLICIT VIDEO. Accounts that use Tumblr's Video Upload feature to
62  
-  regularly upload and host sexually explicit or pornographic material will
63  
-  be suspended.

  3
+As a global platform for creativity and self-expression, Tumblr is deeply
  4
+committed to supporting and protecting freedom of speech. At the same time, we
  5
+draw lines around a few narrowly-defined but deeply important categories of
  6
+content and behavior that jeopardize our users, threaten our infrastructure,
  7
+or damage our community.
  8
+
  9
+What Tumblr is for:
  10
+
  11
+  Tumblr celebrates creativity. We want you to express yourself freely and use
  12
+  Tumblr to reflect who you are, and what you love, think, witness, and
  13
+  believe.
  14
+
  15
+What Tumblr is not for:
  16
+
  17
+  Malicious Bigotry.
  18
+
  19
+    Don't actively promote violence or extreme hatred against   individuals or
  20
+    groups, on the basis of race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender,
  21
+    age, veteran status, or sexual orientation. While we firmly believe that
  22
+    the best response to hateful speech is not censorship but more speech, we
  23
+    will take down malicious bigotry, as defined here.
  24
+
  25
+  Harm to Minors.
  26
+
  27
+    Be thoughtful when posting anything involving a minor. Don't post anything
  28
+    relating to minors that is sexually suggestive or violent. Don't bully
  29
+    minors, even if you are one. Life as a teenager is hard enough without the
  30
+    fear, anguish, and isolation caused by online bullying.
  31
+
  32
+  Promotion and Glorification of Self-Harm.
  33
+
  34
+    Don't post content that actively promotes or glorifies self-harm. This
  35
+    includes content that urges or encourages readers to cut or injure
  36
+    themselves; embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or
  37
+    commit suicide rather than, e.g., seeking counseling or treatment, or
  38
+    joining together in supportive conversation with those suffering or
  39
+    recovering from depression or other conditions. Dialogue about these
  40
+    behaviors is incredibly important and online communities can be
  41
+    extraordinarily helpful to people struggling with these difficult
  42
+    conditions. We aim to sustain Tumblr as a place that facilitates
  43
+    awareness, support and recovery, and to remove only those blogs that cross
  44
+    the line into active promotion or glorification of self-harm.
  45
+
  46
+  Gore and Mutilation Content.
  47
+
  48
+    Don't post gore just to be shocking. Don't showcase the mutilation or
  49
+    torture of human beings, animals, or their remains.
  50
+
  51
+  Unflagged NSFW Blogs.
  52
+
  53
+    Tumblr is home to millions of readers and bloggers from a variety of
  54
+    locations, cultures, and backgrounds with different points of view
  55
+    concerning adult-oriented content. If you regularly post sexual or
  56
+    adult-oriented content, respect the choices of people in our community who
  57
+    would rather not see such content by flagging your blog (which you can do
  58
+    from the Settings page of each blog) as Not Suitable for Work ("NSFW").
  59
+    This action does not prevent you and your readers from using any of
  60
+    Tumblr's social features, but rather allows Tumblr users who don't want to
  61
+    see NSFW content to avoid seeing it.
  62
+
  63
+  Uploading Sexually Explicit Video.
  64
+
  65
+    You can embed anything as long as it follows the other guidelines on this
  66
+    page. But please don't use Tumblr's Upload Video feature to host any
  67
+    sexually explicit videos. We're not in the business of profiting from
  68
+    adult-oriented videos and hosting this stuff is fucking expensive. You can
  69
+    use services like [Fantasti.cc] to host those instead.
  70
+
  71
+  Non-Genuine Social Gesture Schemes.
  72
+
  73
+    Don't participate in schemes to gain non-genuine gestures like follows or
  74
+    reblogs. Don't orchestrate or engage in "follow trains," where users are
  75
+    encouraged to follow lists of other users to gain more followers for
  76
+    themselves. Don't scatter deceptive links to your blog or Follow pages.
  77
+    Don't make bulk or indiscriminate use of messaging features like Fan Mail
  78
+    or Asks to bait followers.
  79
+
  80
+  Username and URL Abuse.
  81
+
  82
+    Tumblr's URLs (usernames) are for the use and enjoyment of our users.
  83
+    Don't squat, hoard, collect, trade, or sell Tumblr URLs, and don't
  84
+    register a URL for the purpose of impersonating an individual,
  85
+    organization, or brand.
  86
+
  87
+  Spam.
  88
+
  89
+    Don't abuse social gestures, send unwanted messages, post misleading tags,
  90
+    or import/aggregate content in a less-than-meaningful way. Don't inject
  91
+    deceptive links or dubious code in your posts. That includes Javascript to
  92
+    unwillingly inject ads in blogs, or embedding links to interstitial or
  93
+    pop-up ad services. Don't use deceptive means to generate revenue or
  94
+    traffic. Don't create blogs with the primary purpose of affiliate
  95
+    marketing. Spam doesn't belong on Tumblr.
  96
+
  97
+  Mass Registration and Automation.
  98
+
  99
+    Don't register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or
  100
+    programmatically.
  101
+
  102
+  Unauthorized Sweepstakes or Giveaways.
  103
+
  104
+    Everyone wants to be a winner, but there are many reasons (including legal
  105
+    ones) why Tumblr can't be used for sweepstakes without our involvement and
  106
+    consent. If you're planning something like this, [let us know].
  107
+
  108
+  Third-Party Theme Distribution.
  109
+
  110
+    To manage the safety and stability of blog themes, the vast majority of
  111
+    which are contributed by the Tumblr community, it's important that themes
  112
+    are distributed through our centralized Theme Garden. Third-party theme
  113
+    directories are often used to inject nefarious code that results in spam,
  114
+    ads, or phishing attacks. Since anyone can host and promote their themes
  115
+    in the Theme Garden, don't create or use third-party services to
  116
+    distribute source code for Tumblr themes. Creating blogs or directories
  117
+    that curate themes in the Theme Garden is a-okay.
  118
+
  119
+  Copyright and Trademark Infringement.
  120
+
  121
+    Respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. If you aren't authorized
  122
+    to use someone else's copyrighted or trademarked work (either expressly or
  123
+    by legal exceptions and limitations like [fair use]), don't. It is our
  124
+    policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement as per our
  125
+    [Terms of Service] and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
  126
+
  127
+  Impersonation, Stalking, or Harassment.
  128
+
  129
+    Treat the community the way you'd like to be treated. Don't attempt to
  130
+    circumvent the Block feature. If you want to parody or ridicule a public
  131
+    figure (and who doesn't?), don't try to trick readers into thinking you
  132
+    are actually that public figure.
  133
+
  134
+  Privacy Violations.
  135
+
  136
+    Don't use Tumblr to deceptively obtain personal information. Don't post
  137
+    content that violates anyone's privacy, including personally identifying
  138
+    or confidential information like credit card numbers, social security
  139
+    numbers, unlisted contact information, or private photos of your ex's junk
  140
+    (no matter how attractive).
  141
+
  142
+  Disruptions, Exploits, and Resource Abuse.
  143
+
  144
+    Our servers and the valiant engineers that support them work hard for you.
  145
+    Don't attempt unauthorized use, disruption, or exploitation of Tumblr.com
  146
+    or our other products and services, or otherwise abuse Tumblr's resources.
  147
+
  148
+  Unlawful Uses and Content.
  149
+
  150
+    This one's pretty obvious, but Tumblr is not a place for illegal behavior,
  151
+    including fraud, phishing, or illegally inciting violence.
  152
+
  153
+And now, some words from our lawyers:
  154
+
  155
+  If we conclude you are violating these policies, you may receive a notice
  156
+  via email. If you don't explain or correct your behavior, your account may
  157
+  be suspended and/or your IP address may be blocked. We do our best to ensure
  158
+  fair outcomes, but in all cases we reserve the right to suspend accounts or
  159
+  remove content, without notice, for any reason, but particularly to protect
  160
+  our services, infrastructure, users, or community. We reserve the right to
  161
+  enforce, or not enforce, these policies in our sole discretion, and these
  162
+  policies don't create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act in any
  163
+  particular manner.
  164
+
  165
+  We also reserve the right to amend these policies using the procedures set
  166
+  forth in our [Terms of Service].
  167
+
  168
+  If you have questions or feedback, don't hesitate to [let us know].

-Tumblr, Inc. ("Tumblr") takes the private nature of your personal
4  
-information very seriously. This Privacy Policy (which we adapted from a
5  
-policy originally provided by [Automattic] ([WordPress.com])) describes how we
6  
-treat the information we collect when you visit and use the website
7  
-available at Tumblr.com (the "Website") and is made available under the
8  
-Creative Commons Sharealike license. Please read this notice very carefully.
9  
-
10  
-Website Visitors
11  
-
12  
-  Like most website operators, Tumblr collects non-personally-identifying
13  
-  information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make
14  
-  available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site,
15  
-  and the date and time of each visitor request. Tumblr’s purpose in
16  
-  collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand
17  
-  how Tumblr’s visitors use its Website. From time to time, Tumblr may
18  
-  release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by
19  
-  publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website.
20  
-
21  
-  Tumblr also collects potentially personally-identifying information like
22  
-  Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Tumblr does not use such information to
23  
-  identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information,
24  
-  other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses
25  
-  personally-identifying information, as described below. 

26  
-
27  
-Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
28  
-
29  
-  Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with Tumblr in ways that
30  
-  require Tumblr to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and
31  
-  type of information that Tumblr gathers depends on the nature of the
32  
-  interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at
33  
-  Tumblr.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in
34  
-  transactions with Tumblr are asked to provide additional information,
35  
-  including as necessary the personal and financial information required to
36  
-  process those transactions. In each case, Tumblr collects such information
37  
-  only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the
38  
-  visitor’s interaction with Tumblr. Tumblr does not disclose
39  
-  personally-identifying information other than as described below. And
40  
-  visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information,
41  
-  with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain
42  
-  website-related activities.
43  
-
44  
-  Tumblr does not collect personally identifiable information from children
45  
-  under the age of 13. If you believe that a child has provided Tumblr with
46  
-  personally identifiable information without the consent of his or her
47  
-  parent or guardian, please contact us at [support@tumblr.com] If Tumblr
48  
-  becomes aware that a child under age 13 has provided us with personally
49  
-  identifiable information, we will delete such information.

50  
-
51  
-Aggregated Statistics
52  
-
53  
-  Tumblr may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the
54  
-  Website. For instance, Tumblr may monitor the most popular blogs on the
55  
-  Tumblr.com site to help identify spam. Tumblr may display this information
56  
-  publicly or provide it to others. However, Tumblr does not disclose
57  
-  personally-identifying information other than as described below. 

58  
-
59  
-Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
60  
-
61  
-  Tumblr discloses potentially personally-identifying and
62  
-  personally-identifying information only to those of its employees,
63  
-  contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that
64  
-  information in order to process it on Tumblr’s behalf or to provide
65  
-  services available at the Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to
66  
-  disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated
67  
-  organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the
68  
-  Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In
69  
-  addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types
70  
-  of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets
71  
-  that is transferred. Moreover, if Tumblr or substantially all of its assets
72  
-  were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Tumblr goes out of business or
73  
-  enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is
74  
-  transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such
75  
-  transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Tumblr may continue to use
76  
-  your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this
77  
-  policy. Otherwise, Tumblr will not rent or sell potentially
78  
-  personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
79  
-
80  
-  Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as
81  
-  described above, Tumblr discloses potentially personally-identifying and
82  
-  personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or
83  
-  when Tumblr believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary
84  
-  to protect the property or rights of Tumblr, third parties or the public at
85  
-  large. If you are a registered user of the Tumblr Website and have supplied
86  
-  your email address, Tumblr may occasionally send you an email to tell you
87  
-  about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with
88  
-  what’s going on with Tumblr and our products. We primarily use our various
89  
-  product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep
90  
-  this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via
91  
-  a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the
92  
-  right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request
93  
-  or to help us support other users. Tumblr takes all measures reasonably
94  
-  necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or
95  
-  destruction of potentially personally-identifying and
96  
-  personally-identifying information.
97  
-
98  
-  You should also be aware that if you submit information to "chat rooms,"
99  
-  "forums" or "message boards" such information becomes public information,
100  
-  meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to
101  
-  that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of
102  
-  receiving unwanted communications.
103  
-
104  
-  For users outside the United States, please note that any
105  
-  personally-identifiable information you enter into the Website will be
106  
-  transferred out of your country and into the United States. You consent to
107  
-  such transfer through your use of the Website. You also warrant that you
108  
-  have the right to transfer such information outside your country and into
109  
-  the United States.
110  
-
111  
-Links to Third Party Sites
112  
-
113  
-  This Privacy Policy only applies to information collected by Tumblr. This
114  
-  Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Tumblr
115  
-  does not own or control, or employees that Tumblr does not manage. The
116  
-  Website contains links to third party websites. Any information you provide
117  
-  to, or that is collected by, third-party sites may be subject to the
118  
-  privacy policies of those sites, if any. We encourage you to read such
119  
-  privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is the sole
120  
-  responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable
121  
-  restrictions on the disclosure of your personally-identifying information,
122  
-  and Tumblr and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or
123  
-  disclosure of your personally-identifying information by any third party.

-Security
126  
-
127  
-  All non-personally-identifying information, potentially

129

-Choice/Opt-out
132  
-
133  
-  If we ever send you information by e-mail concerning new products, services
134  
-  or information that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with
135  
-  an e-mail address by which you may request no further notices.

136  
-
137  
-Cookies
138  
-
139  
-  A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s
140  
-  computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time
141  
-  the visitor returns. Tumblr uses cookies to help Tumblr identify and track
142  
-  visitors, their usage of the Tumblr Website, and their Website access
143  
-  preferences. Tumblr visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on
144  
-  their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using
145  
-  the Tumblr Website, with the drawback that certain features of Tumblr’s
146  
-  Website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
147  
-
148  
-Address Book Data
149  
-
150  
-  Any external address book data (email contacts, etc.) that a user
151  
-  voluntarily gives Tumblr access to will only be used for the described
152  
-  feature (looking up friends, etc.), and will not be stored or repurposed.
153  
-
154  
-Privacy Policy Changes
155  
-
156  
-  Although most changes are likely to be minor, Tumblr may change its Privacy
157  
-  Policy from time to time, and in Tumblr’s sole discretion. If we do then
158  
-  we’ll notify you by posting the amended policy on the Website or by
159

+Tumblr, Inc. ("Tumblr", "we", "us", or "our") takes the private nature of your 
  4
+personal information very seriously. This policy regarding our privacy 
  5
+practices (the "Privacy Policy") describes how we treat the information we 
  6
+collect when you visit and use the website available at tumblr.com (the 
  7
+"Site") and/or Tumblr's other domains, products, services, and/or content 
  8
+(collectively with the Site, the "Services"). When you use the Services, you 
  9
+are consenting to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure 
  10
+and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy; please 
  11
+read it carefully.
  12
+
  13
+Also: This Privacy Policy doesn't govern what our users do on their own blogs 
  14
+and we aren't responsible for the information collection and use practices of 
  15
+our individual blogs and bloggers. One of the great features of Tumblr's 
  16
+products is customizability, and bloggers have a lot of flexibility in how 
  17
+their blogs behave. When you visit a blog in our network, that blog may 
  18
+collect more information than we do, and may provide information to third 
  19
+parties that we have no relationship with, including to advertisers.
  20
+
  21
+What This Privacy Policy Covers
  22
+
  23
+  This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of information gathered when you
  24
+  are using or accessing the Services. This Privacy Policy also covers our
  25
+  treatment of any information that our partners share with us or that we
  26
+  share with our partners.
  27
+
  28
+  This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we
  29
+  do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party
  30
+  websites, services and applications ("Third Party Services") that you elect
  31
+  to access through the Service or to individuals that we don't manage or
  32
+  employ. While we try to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services
  33
+  that share our respect for your privacy, we don't take responsibility for
  34
+  the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage
  35
+  you to carefully review the privacy policies of all Third Party Services you
  36
+  access.
  37
+
  38
+What Information We Collect and How We Use It
  39
+
  40
+  Account Information:
  41
+
  42
+    When you create an account on a Tumblr Service (an "Account"), you will
  43
+    provide information such as your username, password, and email address.
  44
+    You may also be required to provide us with your birthdate, which we use
  45
+    to verify your age and may use to personalize the Services for you (e.g.,
  46
+    by presenting you with content relevant to your age group). This
  47
+    information may personally identify you. For example, if you use your full
  48
+    name as your username, you are disclosing your identity to the public. We
  49
+    also allow users to look for their friends by e-mail address; you can,
  50
+    however, opt out of this feature through your Account Settings page, and
  51
+    we do not expose your e-mail address to the public or third parties,
  52
+    except in the limited circumstances set forth in this Privacy Policy.
  53
+
  54
+  Email Communications with Us:
  55
+
  56
+    As part of the Services, you may occasionally receive email and other
  57
+    communications from us, such as administrative communications relating to
  58
+    your Account (e.g., for purposes of Account recovery or password reset).
  59
+    These communications are considered part of the Services and your Account,
  60
+    which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving. You can opt-out of
  61
+    most communications from Tumblr, such as new follower emails; please see
  62
+    your Account Settings page. Note that we will never email you to ask for
  63
+    your password or other Account information; if you receive such an email,
  64
+    [forward it to us].
  65
+
  66
+    Information about Your Accounts on Third Party Services: You can link your
  67
+    Account to certain Third Party Services. In order to do so, you will
  68
+    provide us with your username or other user ID on each of those Third
  69
+    Party Services. You may also be required to engage in an authorization
  70
+    process with each of those Third Party Services, where we receive a token
  71
+    that allows us to access those accounts so that we can, for example, when
  72
+    you choose, post your Tumblr content, or links to your Tumblr content, to
  73
+    those services. We do not receive or store your passwords for your Third
  74
+    Party Service accounts.
  75
+
  76
+  Information Obtained from Third Party Services:
  77
+
  78
+    In some cases, when you connect your Account with your accounts on Third
  79
+    Party Services, we may obtain information about you from those Third Party
  80
+    Services. Such information could include, for example, your gender, if you
  81
+    have disclosed that information to that third party and made it available
  82
+    for Tumblr to access. To the extent we obtain such information, we may use
  83
+    the information about you that we receive from Third Party Services to
  84
+    improve and personalize the Services. As a general practice, we strongly
  85
+    urge you to make careful judgments about any personal information you
  86
+    disclose to Internet services, including Tumblr and linked Third Party
  87
+    Services, regardless of whether you choose to link your accounts together.
  88
+
  89
+  User Content:
  90
+
  91
+    By default, all sharing through the Services is public, and when you
  92
+    provide us with content it is published so that anyone can view it.
  93
+    Although we do provide tools, like password-protected blogs, that let you
  94
+    publish content privately, you should assume that anything you publish is
  95
+    publicly accessible unless you have explicitly selected otherwise. Content
  96
+    published and shared publicly is accessible to everyone, including search
  97
+    engines, and you may lose any privacy rights you might have regarding that
  98
+    content. In addition, information shared publicly may be copied and shared
  99
+    throughout the Internet, including through features native to the
  100
+    Services, such as "Reblogging." While you are free to remove published
  101
+    pieces of content from or delete your Account, because of the nature of
  102
+    Internet sharing, the strong possibility of Reblogging of your content by
  103
+    others, and technological limitations inherent to the Services, copies of
  104
+    that content may exist elsewhere and be retained indefinitely, including
  105
+    in our systems.
  106
+
  107
+  Information About User Content:
  108
+
  109
+    In some cases, we may collect information about content you provide to the
  110
+    Services. For example, when it's included with your images, we may collect
  111
+    information describing your camera and camera settings. This information
  112
+    allows us to improve the Services and provide additional features and
  113
+    functionality.
  114
+
  115
+  Financial Information:
  116
+
  117
+    We will sometimes collect financial information, such as information
  118
+    related to your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration
  119
+    date or other financial information), for example when you decide to
  120
+    purchase a paid Service. We do not, however, store that financial
  121
+    information; such information is stored by our third party payment
  122
+    processor (the "Payment Processor"), and use and storage of that
  123
+    information is governed by the Payment Processor’s applicable [terms of
  124
+    service] and [privacy policy] (the Payment Processor may also have other
  125
+    terms, and you are responsible for locating and familiarizing yourself
  126
+    with those terms, as applicable). We do receive certain information from
  127
+    our Payment Processor: (1) a unique token that we connect with your
  128
+    Account to enable you to make further purchases using the information
  129
+    stored by our Payment Processor and (2) in certain cases, the last four
  130
+    digits of the credit card number associated with that token, so that we
  131
+    can prevent fraudulent transactions and identity theft.
  132
+
  133
+  Information Related to Use of the Services:
  134
+
  135
+    We collect information about how people use the Services, including those
  136
+    with an Account. This information includes general usage information, and
  137
+    may include information such as the number and frequency of our visitors,
  138
+    which pages or features of the Services they have visited, which links on
  139
+    the Services they have clicked on, and the length of those visits. We may
  140
+    also use third party applications and services, such as Google Analytics
  141
+    and Quantcast, to collect and analyze this information. This information
  142
+    enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often
  143
+    individuals use the Services so that we can analyze and improve them. Some
  144
+    of this information may be associated with the IP Address (as defined
  145
+    below) used to access the Services, and some may be associated with your
  146
+    Account, such as the topics you search for and the help pages that you
  147
+    visit. We may also use some of this information in aggregate form, that
  148
+    is, as a statistical measure related to all of our users that would not
  149
+    identify you personally. We use information about your use of the Services
  150
+    to improve and enhance your experience on the Services.
  151
+
  152
+  Information Related to Your Web Browser:
  153
+
  154
+    We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when
  155
+    you interact with the Services, such as your browser type and version,
  156
+    what sort of device you are using, your operating system and version, your
  157
+    language preference, the website or service that referred you to the
  158
+    Services, the date and time of each web request you make, your screen
  159
+    display information, and information from any cookies we have placed on
  160
+    your web browser (as described below). We also sometimes detect whether
  161
+    you are using certain web browser extensions and store that information in
  162
+    a manner associated with your Account. Web browser-related information is
  163
+    used to enhance your experience with the Services (for example, by
  164
+    personalization) and to allow us to improve the Services; it is not,
  165
+    however, used in a manner that would identify you personally.
  166
+
  167
+  IP Address Information:
  168
+
  169
+    Under certain circumstances, such as when you log into the Services, load
  170
+    a web page from the Services, or send an "Ask" message anonymously, we may
  171
+    collect and store your Internet Protocol Address ("IP Address"). We
  172
+    generally use IP Address information to fight spam, malware, and identity
  173
+    theft; we also may use it, in the future, to personalize the Services for
  174
+    you. IP Address information is also used by us to generate aggregate,
  175
+    non-identifying, information about use of the Services.
  176
+
  177
+  Location Information:
  178
+
  179
+    In some cases we collect and store information about where you are
  180
+    located, such as by converting your IP Address into a rough geolocation.
  181
+    We may use location information to improve and personalize the Services
  182
+    for you.
  183
+
  184
+  Information Related to Your Mobile Device:
  185
+
  186
+    We may collect and store information related to your mobile device, such
  187
+    as your phone number. You will have a choice as to whether we collect and
  188
+    store this information. We may use this information to improve the
  189
+    Services, such as by allowing you to verify your account by text message.
  190
+
  191
+  Information Collected Using Cookies:
  192
+
  193
+    Cookies are pieces of text that may be sent to and saved by your web
  194
+    browser when you access a website; your web browser stores these cookies
  195
+    in a way associated with each website you visit, and you can see your
  196
+    cookies through your browser settings. We use cookies to enable our
  197
+    servers to recognize your web browser and tell us how and when you use the
  198
+    Services. Our cookies do not, by themselves, contain information that
  199
+    personally identifies you, and we don't combine the general information
  200
+    collected through cookies with other such information to tell us who you
  201
+    are. However, we do use cookies to identify that you have logged in and
  202
+    that your web browser has accessed aspects of the Services, and we may
  203
+    associate that information with your Account if you have one. This
  204
+    information, in turn, is sometimes used to personalize your experiences on
  205
+    the Services, such as by presenting you with a different iFrame (allowing
  206
+    you to follow a blog) when you are logged in and visit a blog hosted by
  207
+    Tumblr. Most web browsers have an option for turning off the cookie
  208
+    feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as
  209
+    well as (depending on the sophistication of your web browser software)
  210
+    allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of
  211
+    ways. If you disable cookies, you won't be able to log into your Account,
  212
+    and so will not be able to use the vast majority of our Services; as such,
  213
+    we don't recommend disabling your cookies when using the Services. Some
  214
+    third-party services that we use, such as Google Analytics and Quantcast,
  215
+    may also place their own cookies on your browser, and individual blogs on
  216
+    our network may contain code that places their own cookies. Note that this
  217
+    Privacy Policy covers our use of cookies only and does not cover the use
  218
+    of cookies by third parties.
  219
+
  220
+  Information About Your Contacts:
  221
+
  222
+    Certain features of the Services allow you to provide us with your contact
  223
+    lists stored on other services, so that we can connect you with people in
  224
+    our Services that are also on those contact lists. For example, you can
  225
+    temporarily connect your e-mail contact information to your Tumblr.com
  226
+    account, so that we can provide you with a list of your e-mail contacts
  227
+    that use Tumblr.com. As another example, you can send us your mobile phone
  228
+    contact e-mails through our mobile applications, which then allows us to
  229
+    provide you with a list of those contacts that use Tumblr.com. We will
  230
+    give you an explicit choice as to whether or not you provide us such
  231
+    information, and we will disclose fully, within the appropriate feature,
  232
+    how we use, and whether we will store, that information.
  233
+
  234
+  Derived Information:
  235
+
  236
+    We analyze your actions on the Services in order to derive or infer
  237
+    characteristics that may be descriptive of you (for example, what kinds of
  238
+    blogs you like to follow). These characteristics are used to improve and
  239
+    personalize the Services.
  240
+
  241
+  Email Tracking:
  242
+
  243
+    We may place information in our emails to you (such as a web beacon) that
  244
+    allows us to measure our email deliverability.
  245
+
  246
+With Whom Your Information Is Shared
  247
+
  248
+  We never share information we receive from you unless:
  249
+
  250
+    (a) we have your permission to share that information;
  251
+
  252
+    (b) we have given you prior notice that the information will be shared,
  253
+        and with whom; or
  254
+
  255
+    (c) that information is aggregate information or other information that
  256
+        does not identify you.
  257
+
  258
+  Information Shared with the Public Through the Services:
  259
+
  260
+    As noted above, by default, content published through the Services is
  261
+    shared with the public, and this is an important feature of the Services.
  262
+    Such information includes, but isn't limited to, anything you choose to
  263
+    post on or submit to a public blog, including "About" information that may
  264
+    describe you and anything apparent in a posted photograph. Because this
  265
+    kind of information can be seen by anyone and may be indexed by search
  266
+    engines (like Google Search), you should be careful in what you choose to
  267
+    disclose publicly and make sure it is information you want to share with
  268
+    everyone.
  269
+
  270
+  Information Shared Between the Services:
  271
+
  272
+    We may, if possible, aggregate information about your use of multiple
  273
+    Services and use that consolidated information to improve how the Services
  274
+    operate, and to develop new Services.
  275
+
  276
+  Information You Share with Third Party Services:
  277
+
  278
+    You may access Third Party Services through the Services, for example by
  279
+    clicking on externally-pointing links. You may also choose to share
  280
+    information that you provide to us, like blog posts, with those Third
  281
+    Party Services (for example, by syndicating posts to Twitter or Facebook).
  282
+    This Privacy Policy only governs information we collect and you are
  283
+    responsible for reading and understanding those Third Party Services'
  284
+    privacy policies.
  285
+
  286
+  Information Shared with Our Agents in Order to Operate and Improve the
  287
+  Services:
  288
+
  289
+    In some cases, we share information that we store (such as IP Addresses)
  290
+    with third parties, such as our service providers, consultants and other
  291
+    agents ("Agents"), for the purposes of operating and improving the
  292
+    Services. For example, we may share information with service providers in
  293
+    order to fight spam, and third-party consultants may have access to
  294
+    information in the process of improving our processes and technology.
  295
+    Agents with whom we share such information for these reasons are generally
  296
+    bound by confidentiality obligations and, unless we tell you differently,
  297
+    our Agents do not have any right to use Personal Information or other
  298
+    information we share with them beyond the scope and duration of what is
  299
+    necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal
  300
+    Information with our Agents.
  301
+
  302
+  Information Shared with Third Parties:
  303
+
  304
+    We may share or disclose non-private information, Aggregate Information,
  305
+    or other non-Personal Information with people and entities that we do
  306
+    business with.
  307
+
  308
+  Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers:
  309
+
  310
+    In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell business assets. In these
  311
+    transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred
  312
+    business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were
  313
+    acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user
  314
+    information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by
  315
+    a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any
  316
+    acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information
  317
+    as set forth in this policy.
  318
+
  319
+  Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others:
  320
+
  321
+    We believe in freedom of expression, and, to the extent reasonable, we try
  322
+    to protect our community from baseless legal demands. That said, we also
  323
+    reserve the right to access, preserve, and disclose any information as we
  324
+    reasonably believe is necessary, in our sole discretion, to (i) satisfy
  325
+    any law, regulation, legal process, governmental request, or governmental
  326
+    order, (ii) enforce this Privacy Policy and our [Terms of Service],
  327
+    including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect,
  328
+    prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues
  329
+    (including exchanging information with other companies and organizations
  330
+    for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention), (iv) respond to user
  331
+    support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property, health or safety of
  332
+    us, our users, any third parties or the public in general, including but
  333
+    not limited to situations involving possible violence, suicide, or
  334
+    self-harm.
  335
+
  336
+  Information We Share with Your Consent or at Your Request:
  337
+
  338
+    If you ask us to release information that we have about your Account, we
  339
+    will do so if reasonable and not unduly burdensome.
  340
+
  341
+The Security of Your Information
  342
+
  343
+  Your Account information is protected by a password for your privacy and
  344
+  security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your Account and
  345
+  Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately
  346
+  and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you
  347
+  have finished accessing your Account on the Services.
  348
+
  349
+  We seek to protect your information (including your Account information) to
  350
+  ensure that it is kept private; however, we can't guarantee the security of
  351
+  any information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure,
  352
+  and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any
  353
+  time.
  354
+
  355
+What Information You Can Access
  356
+
  357
+  If you are a registered user, you can access and delete most information
  358
+  associated with your Account by logging into the Services and checking your
  359
+  Account Settings page. Registered and unregistered users can access and
  360
