Personal identification information
From time to time Storygize, as well as any third-party vendors and/or service providers, may collect personal information from Users for identification purposes in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, respond to a survey, register on the site, subscribe to the newsletter, place an order, fill out a form, engage in our services, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address. Any User may, however, visit our Site anonymously. When we collect personal information for identification purposes, we will collect such information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Any Users can always refuse to supply personally information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.
Non-personal identification information
We may collect non-personal information for identification purposes about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information. This information does not provide any information that is specific to a user, such as name, email address, and other contact information.
In addition to the information described above, we may ask you to provide personal information when you become a customer or otherwise communicate or interact with us. If a User applies to become a customer of Storygize, we may request additional information from the User via customer application forms, insertion orders and other forms. If a User is a customer, we may provide the User with the ability to access their account via an online provider, in which case we will ask for the User’s online authentication information. If a User does not want their personal information collected, they should not submit it. In order to ensure the safekeeping of User information, network advertising companies and publishers are not permitted to directly collect personal information through the services we provide.
Storygize will retain personal information about our Users and customers for as long as needed to provide services to our customers, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
How we protect User information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.
User personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Third Party Websites and Applications
Storygize may transfer and disclose information, including personal information about our Users, usage information and information about the User’s device, to third parties to comply with certain legal obligations. This may arise to comply with certain laws, for instance, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. We may also disclose information to meet certain legal obligations. In this situation, we would provide information, including personal information about our users, to verify, enforce or applicable terms or other applicable policies; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect the rights, safety, property, or security of Storygize, our customers or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Information is collected in the United States
Storygize operates in the United States. Given that we are an international business, our use of User information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. If a User is located outside of the United States, that information we collect may be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using the Service, or providing Storygize with any information, each User consents to the collection, processing, maintenance and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where a User may reside and/or is a citizen.
