  1. Website Visitors

During the course of your use of the Website, Storynamics may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Storynamics collects this information to better understand how visitors to the Website use the Website.

 

Storynamics, through its responsibility for collecting payments made through the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website for orders placed on that website, may collect personally-identifying information including your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, and other personally-identifying information. Storynamics may also ask you to provide a credit card number. This information is mandatory. You further understand that this information, because it was collected on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website, a third-party website offering a service, your personally-identifying information will also be governed by the privacy policy affecting the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website. The information we gather through your purchase from the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website is stored only on the third-party payment processor service providers’ servers. From the information that you provide during your purchase on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website, Storynamics will retain your name and email address to inform you of products or services provided by Storynamics, to optimize the products or services we already provide to you, and to provide better user experiences while on the website or during the purchase from the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website.

 

We don’t ask for your personal information unless we truly need it. We don’t store your personal information on any server unless required for the on-going operation or use of our Website or purchase of products on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website.

 

  1. Collection Methods and Use of Information

We do not collect any personally-identifying information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain personally-identifying information to us when you: (a) send email messages or transmit other information by telephone or letter; or (b) submit your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products through the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website.

 

In addition, our content server may collect certain non-personally identifiable information such as the uniform resource locator (“URL”) that you used to access the Website and your internet protocol (“IP”) address.
We will primarily use your personally-identifiable information to provide our services to you, as required by our agreements with you. We will also use personally-identifiable information to enhance the operation of our Website, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Website use, improve our product and service offerings, and customize our Website’s content, layout, and services. We may use personally-identifiable information to contact you regarding administrative notices. We may also use personally-identifiable information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.

 

  1. Release of Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent your personally-identifiable information to others. Storynamics will only share your personally-identifiable information with select third party service providers for the purposes of facilitating the transaction through the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website. In addition, Storynamics may provide personally-identifiable information that you provide to us to Law Enforcement Officials and Government Agencies in response to an official request, when permitted or required by law, or in order to demonstrate that Storynamics is compliant with applicable laws, rules, regulations, or guidelines.

 

The payment processing that is conducted by our third party payment services provider during your purchase of products on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website requires us to use your personally-identifiable information so that the service provider involved in processing your payment can conduct its activities. We encourage our service providers to adopt and post their own privacy policies. However, the use of your personally-identifiable information by our service providers is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control.

 

If another company acquires Storynamics, its business, or its assets (including via bankruptcy) or if Storynamics merges with another company, the acquiring or merging company will be given access to the personally-identifiable information collected by Storynamics.

 

By using the Website and providing personally-identifiable information, you acknowledge that our service providers may be located in countries that have a different level of data protection than you have in your home country.

 

  1. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information

Your use of the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website may require you to activate cookies on your web browser so that you can complete your purchase of a product. If you deactivate cookies in your browser, Storynamics may not be able to collect payment or complete your order. Any cookies activated by the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website are governed by the privacy policy for that website. Accordingly, you should review the privacy policy for the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website regarding your ability to change what information is collected from you while you are using the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website.

 

  1. Security of Information

At our Website you can be assured that your personally-identifiable information is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all personally-identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. We also protect payment information that is provided to us as a result of your interaction with the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website. Your personally-identifiable information resides on a secure server that only Storynamics and its authorized representatives (including employees and contractors) have access to via a login with their own username and password. We encrypt your personally-identifiable information and thereby prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us.

 

In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third party banking, processing agents, and distribution institutions. They receive information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order.

 

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally-identifiable information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

 

  1. Storynamics Communications with You

In processing the payment that you provide in ordering products from the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website, Storynamics may use the email address that you used when completing the order to communicate with you solely for the purposes of resolving disputes as to the payment information you provided. Storynamics may also use this email address to send you promotional communications regarding Storynamics’ own products and services. Storynamics will not share this information with third-party advertisers, other than the operator of the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website for the sole purpose of communicating with you regarding the order that you placed on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website.

 

If at any time you wish to withdraw your consent to use of your personally-identifiable information for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, please notify us via email at info@storynamics.com. Place “Delete My Information” in the subject line and include your first name, last name, and e-mail address in the body of the e-mail. We will respond to your request within thirty (30) days. Please note that certain records, for example those pertaining to payments, customer service matters, or technical information associated with your usage of the Website will be retained for legal, accounting, and technical purposes.

 

When you purchase a product on the Third Party Printing and Fulfillment Website and Storynamics processes the payment for your account, you automatically “opt-in” to receive email communication from us as outlined in this Privacy Policy. These communications will comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. You may opt-out of receiving these communications at any time by sending an email message to info@storynamics.com. Even if you opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional email communications from Storynamics, Storynamics may, as necessary, email you in connection with a purchase confirmation, customer support matter, or security issue related to your account.

 

  1. Privacy Policies of Third Party Websites

Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Other sites accessible through our Website have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.

 

  1. California Privacy Rights

Storynamics does not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by “opting in” to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our sites. If you do ask us to share your personally-identifiable information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personally-identifiable information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personal information on one of our sites.

 

At this time, there is no consensus on how companies like Storynamics should interpret “Do Not Track” signals. Storynamics does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals, whether that signal is received on a computer or on a mobile device.

 

  1. Miscellaneous Privacy Issues

You must be at least 18 years old to have our permission to use this Website. Our policy is that we do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personally-identifiable information about visitors that are under 18 years of age. Storynamics respects the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998 and upholds the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Unity (CARU) of the Council of Better Business Bureau, Inc. Please help Storynamics by protecting your child’s privacy by instructing them never to provide personally-identifiable information on this Website or any other without your permission.

 

Storynamics may revise this Privacy Policy from time-to-time. The most current version of the Policy will govern our use of your information. By continuing to access or use the Website after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

 

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE OVER PRIVACY IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, AS WELL AS THE TERMS OF USE FOR THE WEBSITE (INCLUDING THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS).
