PAYPOINT.NET Sharing Tools

The PayPoint.net website now carries embedded ‘share’ buttons to enable you to easily share articles with your friends through a number of popular social networks. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. PayPoint.net does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.

Other Third Party IP Address Processing activities

If you shorten PayPoint.net URLs, for example on Twitter or Facebook, and use the bit.ly service to do so, PayPoint.net works with bit.ly to rebrand that as a http://PayPoint.net.in/xxxxx link. In addition, PayPoint.net web products or phone apps sometimes offer features that allow users to share links with social networks and PayPoint.net shortens that URL using the bit.ly service

Bit.ly provides PayPoint.net with anonymised, aggregated statistics relating to use of the shortened PayPoint.net URL, for example by telling us how many times it has been clicked on. PayPoint.net does not have access to the IP address of your computer collected by bit.ly when you use its service or any other identifiable information about you. Nor does Bit.ly have any access to data collected on a PayPoint.net website. For more information on bit.ly's privacy policy, please see http://bit.ly/pages/privacy.
