When you register the Application, you choose the Google Plus account that BitLit will associate with your use of the Application. This registration requires that you disclose personal information, including, without limitation, your name and email address (“Personal Information”).

You also represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which the messages may be received, and that you understand and are authorized to approve the applicable charges.

You understand and agree that pertinent data needed for such alerts will be transmitted and temporarily be stored on services operated by BitLit, and that at the appropriate time, this alert data will be transmitted via corresponding services (e.g., for delivery to your device or chosen delivery endpoints). At no time is the Personal Information you provide transmitted via the third-party delivery service unless as required by the nature of the delivery mechanism (electronic mail, for example, requires your name and email address for delivery). Should you disagree with the mechanism of this service, you agree to disable and not use reminder alerts as provided in the Application.
