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.

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).
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:
Analytical and Performance cookies which in general allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors, and to see how visitors move around our Site when they are using it. Sketch Nation sometimes uses third party service providers to help track the activity and user flows within the Site. These third parties may use temporary cookies and/or web beaconing technology to facilitate tracking individual user’s movements. Flurry is one example of a third party analytics provider that we use; and
Google Analytics cookies, which in particular are used as Sketch Nation contracts with Google as a third party vendor. You can find out more about this popular website analytics tool here: http://www.google.com/analytics/index.html. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. All of this information is anonymized. You can find out more about how it protects your data here: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
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.
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.
Links to Third Party Sites
We may employ procedural and technological measures, consistent with industry practice. Such measures are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Sketch Nation may use encryption and password protection to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information.
