Information We Collect and How We Use It
INFORMATION COLLECTED USING COOKIES
INFORMATION RELATED TO USE OF SHADOW PUPPET
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.
PUPPETS YOU CREATE
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 use a third-party service provider that requires it, such as for payment processing, data storage, and hosting and servers.
- We need to disclose it as part of a business transaction. Information that we collect from our users, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your information may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
- We need to do so for legal reasons or to protect ourselves or others. We strongly believe in protecting you from having your privacy violated through abuse of legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and in contesting claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if we believe it is necessary to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process; to respond to lawful requests; to protect the rights, property and safety of us or others; and to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
- You expressly ask us to do so.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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).
