Last Update: May 12, 2015
Thank you for reviewing Sketch Nation, Inc’s ("Sketch Nation") privacy policy for its mobile application ("App") and Internet web site located at the URL www.sketchnation.com ("Site"). This Privacy Policy details certain policies implemented throughout Sketch Nation governing Sketch Nation’s collection and use of personally identifiable information about users of our Site and users of our App.

Privacy Policy Updates

Sketch Nation may need to update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If so, Sketch Nation will post our updated Privacy Policy on our Site located at http://sketchnation.com/privacypolicy.html and on our App, along with notice that the Privacy Policy has been changed so you are always aware of what personally identifiable information we may collect and how we may use this information. Sketch Nation may also send registered users that have provided us with their email address an email notification notifying such users of any changes to the Privacy Policy. Sketch Nation encourages you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of this Site or App and/or continued provision of personally identifiable information to us will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, to register for an account or to otherwise use certain services and functionality of the Site and to be able to use our App to store created games or share games, you will be required to provide us with your username, password and age . Your username does not function as online contact information that can be used to contact you through our Site or App. If you are 13 or older and would like us to assist you with resetting your password in the future when you forget your password, you must also provide us with your email address.

If you contact us with questions or to request information, we will collect the personally identifiable information that you voluntarily transmit with your communications to us. We also may collect personally identifiable information about you that you elect to upload to the Site or our App.

We may use your personally identifiable information to register you to use our Site and App and to provide our services to you, assist you with password retrieval, contact you to deliver certain services or information you have requested, verify your authority to use the App and the Site, improve the content and general administration of the Site and the App. We may also send you targeted marketing and promotions regarding our App and the Site. If you do not wish to receive these marketing or promotions from us, you may opt-out as set forth in the message.

As part of the App and the Site, you may upload content, photos and videos to the games and we collect the personally identifiable information in such content, photos and videos that you upload and we use such information to provide the Site, App and services to you. If you are 13 or older, you also may elect to "share" the games that you have created on the Site and/or on the App. If you "share" the games you have created, your username and any non-public or personally identifiable information that you have elected to upload to a game will be viewable by other users of the Site and App. If you elect to share your game with specific persons through email we will ask for that third party’s email address and we will only use their email address to send them or provide them with access to your game that you have specified. If you elect to share your game on a third party website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+, based on your privacy settings on such third party websites, other users will be able to view your username and any personally identifiable information you have included in your game. Your interactions with such third party websites are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the interaction.

Additionally, the third party app store providers from which you obtain the App may collect certain data about you, including aggregate data, and your use of the applicable app store is subject to the privacy policy terms of the app store provider. The app store providers may provide us with certain aggregate data about you.

Children’s Privacy

Sketch Nation recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. Neither the Site nor the App are directed to children under the age of 13. Sketch Nation does not target its App or this Site to children under 13. Sketch Nation does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that information. If your child has provided personally identifiable information, please contact us so we can delete it. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide us with any personally identifiable information (such as your email).

Cookies

We may use small text files called cookies to improve overall Site experience. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Cookies generally do not permit us to personally identify you. We generally use session cookies to save your preferences and such cookies expire when you close your browser. We also may set a persistent cookie to authenticate users and for support for the internal operations of our Site and App. Sketch Nation itself does not track users over time over multiple websites and therefore does not respond to browser do not track signals.

Third parties such as providers of external services like web traffic analysis services may also track users over time and over our Site and third party websites and may also place cookies, via our Site. These cookies are likely to be analytical, performance cookies or targeting cookies, including:

Aggregate Information

Through the third party analytic providers, as discussed above, and directly through our Site, we may track information that will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and which will not contain your personally identifiable information. For example, without limitation, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, browser type, External Web Sites (defined below) linked to and IP addresses. We may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, and we may use such aggregate information to administer the Site, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Disclosure

If you have elected to "share" certain games you have created, your personally identifiable information may be shared with specific persons as set forth in the Information Collection and Use Section above.

We may provide your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing our services to you for their use solely to provide us with such assistance. For example, our Site is hosted by Amazon Web Services. We will also disclose your personally identifiable information (a) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or otherwise in cooperation with an ongoing investigation of a governmental authority, (b) to enforce the Sketch Nation Terms of Use or user agreements or to protect our rights or (c) to protect the safety of users of our Site and our services. We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organization, but we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Sketch Nation participates or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or substantially all of Sketch Nation’s assets to which this Site relates.

Links to Third Party Sites

The Site may provide links to other Web sites or resources over which Sketch Nation does not have control ("External Web Sites"). Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Sketch Nation of those External Web Sites.

Questions

Users Outside of the United States

Our computer systems and third party hosting provider systems are currently based in the United States, so your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. If you create a user account with the App or the Site as a visitor from outside the United States, by using the App or the Site you agree to this Privacy Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection of that required in the European Union or certain other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.
