Please note that creators and/or project initiators may have additional privacy policies or statements, which govern their practices in collecting, storing, using and disclosing your personal information. Please read those additional privacy policies or statements carefully. You hereby represent and warrant to Dovetale that you have familiarized yourself and agree with those privacy policies or statements imposed by any creator with whom you elect to deal through the Platform.
At Dovetale Inc. ("Dovetale", "we", "our" and "us") we are committed to protecting your privacy, and support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.
The personal information we may collect in the course of you accessing or using the Website or the Services (including through your initial registration for an account and the subsequent administration of that account) may include, but is not limited to, the following:
We use your personal information to:
Except with your consent, we will not sell, license, trade or rent your personal information to or with others.
We may allow you to store your W-9 information and share such W-9 information with entities to which you provide services through Dovetale.
We may share your Personal Information with Partner Companies to provide technical support or to provide specific services, such as hosting of your applications, maintenance services, database management, or payment processing. Partner Companies will have access to your Personal Information only to perform these services on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. Partner Companies agree in writing to provide the same or greater level of privacy protection as required by Dovetale.
Regardless of any choices you make regarding your Personal Information (as described below), Dovetale may disclose Personal Information if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on Dovetale; (b) protect or defend the rights or property of Dovetale or users of the Dovetale's service; or (c) protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable.
Except as otherwise stated in this policy, we do not generally sell, trade, share, or rent the Personal Information collected from our services to third parties. You expressly consent to the sharing of your Personal Information as described in this policy.
Dovetale also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Dovetale or of any of the business or assets or shares of Dovetale or a division thereof in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.
Dovetale collects personal information about you, from you, or from third parties you authorize us to collect such information from, only when you voluntarily provide it or authorize us to collect it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when we want to use information for a purpose not previously identified).
The form of consent that we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances.
We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided.
If you have not opted out of receiving marketing materials, we may also use (but will not disclose) your personal information to promote and market additional goods, services and special offers from us, our affiliates and/or our business associates, including by means of direct marketing. We may also disclose your name and mailing address to these affiliates and/or third party business associates so that they can send you promotional materials directly.
You can choose not to allow us to use or disclose your personal information for direct marketing purposes by indicating your preference on the user settings page or by contacting us as outlined below (see "Contacting Us").

Some browsers can be set to reject all cookies. If you choose to modify your browser in this manner, some pages of this website may not function properly.

This protection applies in relation to information stored in both electronic and hard copy form. Access to such personal information is restricted to selected employees or representatives.
Dovetale retains your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws, and your consent to such purposes(s) remains valid after termination of our relationship with you.
