Privacy Policy

If our Privacy Policy  does not  make sense, please get in touch

Effective Date: 01/10/2017


General information

This policy sets out our privacy practices and explains how we handle the information we collect when you visit and use our sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content provided by Blacticulate, in existence now or in the future (“Blacticulate Services”). There’s a lot we’ve covered so please read it carefully.

What we may collect

We collect information about what Blacticulate pages you access or visit, information about your mobile device (such as device or browser type), information volunteered by you (such as through registration), the URLs of websites that referred you to us, and e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via email.

When you log into Blacticulate Services or load a web page from Blacticulate Services, we collect and store your Internet Protocol address. We may use this information to fight spam, malware, and identity theft; to personalise Blacticulate Services for you; or to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Blacticulate Services.

When you create your Blacticulate account, and authenticate via a third-party service like Twitter, we may collect, store, and periodically update the contact lists associated with that third-party account, so that we can make it easy for you to connect with your existing contacts from that service who are also on Blacticulate.

Email communications with us

We may occasionally need to email you some administrative info, tell you something important about your account or changes to our services, or update you on new policies. We will never email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, send it to us so we can take action against this scammer.

Disclosure of your information

The information we collect is used to provide and improve Blacticulate Services and content and prevent abuse. We don’t sell personal information about our users to any third party.

While Blacticulate endeavours to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may share your personal information with third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we’re going to release your information, our policy is to provide you with advance notice unless we are prohibited from doing so by law or court order. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

We may disclose your information without providing you with prior notice if we believe it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person. In that case, we will endeavor to provide you with post-disclosure notice when permitted by law.

We will independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.

If we’re acquired by or merged with another company and your information becomes subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you before the transfer. You can opt out of the new policy by deleting your account during the notice period.

Public user content

Blacticulate is meant for publishing public, not private, content. By default, whatever we/you share through Blacticulate Services is public. Although we do provide tools that let you write and edit draft content prior to publication, you should assume that any content you provide us may become publicly accessible.

Content published and shared through Blacticulate Services is publicly accessible, which means that everyone, including search engines, will be able to see it. This content may also be copied and shared by others throughout the Internet, including through features native to Blacticulate Services, such as commenting and embedding.

You are free to remove published content from your account, or even disable your account entirely. However, because of the fundamentally open nature of the Internet, the strong possibility that others will comment on or embed your content, and technological limitations inherent to Blacticulate Services, copies of your content may exist elsewhere indefinitely, including in our systems.


A cookie is a small piece of text, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, sent to and saved by your web browser when you access a website.

We use cookies to enable our servers to recognise your web browser and tell us how and when you use Blacticulate Services. We use cookies to identify whether you have logged in and recognise that your web browser has accessed aspects of Blacticulate Services, and we may associate that information with your account if you have one. This information, in turn, is sometimes used to personalise your experiences on Blacticulate Services when you are logged in. To measure the deliverability of our emails to users, we may embed information in them, such as a web beacon or tag.

Most browsers have an option for disabling cookies, but if you disable them you won’t be able to log into your Blacticulate account, and won’t be able to use the vast majority of Blacticulate Services.

We respect Do Not Track (“DNT”) settings in browsers. If you are logged out of our services and have DNT enabled, we will not set cookies that can be used to aggregate information about your usage. We may use some cookies to enhance your experience by storing preferences or options. Again, you must have cookies enabled in order to log into our services.

Some third-party services that we use, such as, may place their own cookies in your browser. Note that this Privacy Policy covers our use of cookies only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Modifying your personal information or deleting your account

If you are a registered Blacticulate user, you can access or modify your personal information or delete your account here.

If you deactivate your account, you can reactivate it within 30 days by logging back in. After 30 days, your account and content will be deleted and unrecoverable.

We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. This means that after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Data security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and you are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as keeping your password secret).


Blacticulate Services are intended for general audiences and are not directed to children under 15. We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 15. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us. If we learn that a child under 15 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

Changes to this Policy

Blacticulate may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your Medium account or by placing a prominent notice on our site before the changes take effect.


We welcome questions, concerns, and feedback about this policy. If you have any suggestions for us, feel free to let us know at [email protected]
