Privacy Policy

Last Updated: May 8, 2014

Thank you for using Shadow Puppet. This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that we receive when you use Shadow Puppet.

Information We Collect and How We Use It


We collect certain information through the use of "cookies," which are small text files that are saved by your browser when you access the Shadow Puppet website. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you've logged in to Shadow Puppet and to tell us how and when you've used it. We may also use cookies to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing and to customize and improve Shadow Puppet. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, that if you don't accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of Shadow Puppet. Some third-party services providers that we use may also place their own cookies on your browser. Note that this Privacy Policy covers only our use of cookies and does not include use of cookies by such third parties.


Our servers automatically record information about how a person uses Shadow Puppet, including IP addresses, browser types, operating systems, pages or features of Shadow Puppet that were used and time spent on them, search terms and other statistics. We use and analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to customize and improve Shadow Puppet. We also use IP addresses to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how Shadow Puppet is used.


In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize Shadow Puppet.


You are in control over who can see the puppets you make with the service. You can choose to make puppets just for yourself or to share them with individuals or social services. The people who can see puppets you share on social services are controlled by your privacy settings on those services.

Information We Share With Third Parties

We'll only share information about you in the following cases:

We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.

Modifying Your Information

If you would like to delete any puppets hosted on our servers and can no longer do so from within the app, please send an email to

International Transfer

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. If you're located outside the United States and choose to provide your information to us, we may transfer your information to the United States and process it there.

Our Policy Towards Children

Shadow Puppet is great for kids and is used widely in schools and by children of all ages. We do not knowingly collect any personally identifable information about our users, and are compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Changes to Privacy Policy

Any information that we collect is subject to the privacy policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may, however, revise the Privacy Policy from time to time. If a revision - in our sole discretion - is material, we will notify you. Other changes may be posted to our blog, so please check that regularly. The most current version will always be posted on our Privacy Policy page.
