Privacy Policy

Last Revised: May 25, 2018

Our privacy policy applies to information we collect when you use or access SKTCHY (collectively, "SKTCHY", "we", or "us"), including any SKTCHY mobile applications and websites (the "Services"), and any images, information, text, graphics, photos, or other materials uploaded, downloaded, or appearing on the Services (collectively referred to as "Content").

We may change this privacy policy from time to time. Whenever we make changes to this privacy policy, we will post the revised privacy policy to our website (www.sktchy.com) a reasonable amount of time before the changes take effect. We encourage you to review our privacy policy whenever you access our Services to stay informed about our practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.


Collection of Information

Information You Provide To Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, participate in any interactive features of our Services, fill out a form, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, and other contact or identifying information you choose to provide.

Information We Collect Automatically When You Use The Service

When you access or use our Services, we automatically collect information about you, including:

  • Log Information: We log information about your use of our Services, including the type of browser you use, access times, pages viewed, your IP address, and the page you visited before navigating to our Services
  • Device Information: We collect information about the computer you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, and operating system and version
  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies (see "Cookies" section below)

Cookies

We use various technologies to collect information, and this may include sending cookies to your computer. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in your device memory that helps us to improve our Services and your experience, see which areas and features of our Services are popular, and count visits.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.

SKTCHY uses retargeting cookies to present you with SKTCHY advertising on other websites.

  • Facebook Custom Audiences: You can adjust your Facebook advertising settings from within your Facebook account and opt-out of advertisements from within the Facebook application.
  • Google Adwords: You can adjust the Google ads settings and opt-out of this program.

We use Google Analytics cookies to see how you use SKTCHY so we can improve in a variety of ways. We encourage you to read the Google privacy policy. If you prefer to not have data reported by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Information We Collect From Other Sources

In order to provide you with access to the Services, or to provide you with better service in general, we may combine information obtained from other sources (for example, a third party whose application you have authorized) and combine that with information we collect through our Services.

Do Not Track

Our service does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means our third party analytics providers may associate your usage on Sktchy with your usage on other sites.

We use information about you for various purposes, including to:

  • Provide, maintain and improve our Services;
  • Provide services you request;
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages;
  • Respond to your comments, questions, and requests, and provide customer service;
  • Communicate with you about SKTCHY-related news and information;
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our Services; and
  • Personalize and improve our Services.

By accessing and using our Services, you consent to the processing and transfer of your information in and to the United States and other countries.


Sharing of Information

Information Shared with third parties

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:

  • With your permission; for example, if you win a prize in a giveaway that involves a SKTCHY partner, like an art-supply company, and that third-party needs your mailing address to send you the prize, we would ask for your permission to share your mailing address with the third-party
  • With companies that are contractually engaged in providing us with services, such as order fulfillment, email management, analyzing data trends, credit card processing and fraud detection and prevention. These companies may have access to personal information to perform their services and are obligated by contract to safeguard any PII they receive from us
  • To protect the security or integrity of SKTCHY, and to protect the rights, property, or safety of SKTCHY, its employees, users, or others, if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process (e.g., subpoenas or warrants served on us). If we are going to release your data, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance by email, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so
  • To enforce applicable user agreements or policies, including our Terms of Service; and to protect SKTCHY, our users, or the public from harm or illegal activities
  • In connection with the sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets or reorganization of our company. We will notify you if a different company receives your PII. The promises in this privacy policy apply to any data transferred to a new entity
  • If we notify you through our Services (or in our privacy policy) that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information

We may also share aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you.

Our privacy policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, third party cookies or other tracking technologies, and we encourage you to check the privacy policies of these third parties to learn more about their privacy practices.
