Information you directly provide
You voluntarily give us certain information when you sign up for or use our Service. Information you directly provide to us is the information that’s required when you sign up for Crayvit, such as your name and email address. Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Crayvit, such as when you post a new Crayv, edit a Crayv, upload a photo, or comment on a friend’s Crayv. It also includes the information you share when you take an action, such as when you contribute or Crayv an item. Your name, profile picture and product desires are treated just like information you choose to make public. If you’re using Crayvit on your mobile device, you may also provide us with location-based data.
Information you directly provide includes:
- Profile information (e.g., your name, email and postal address, gender) that you provide by completing forms, including if you register as a user of the Service;
- User Content (e.g., products you select, comments, and other materials) that you post to the Service;
- Details of any requests or transactions made by you through the Service;
- Information that you post in the form of comments or contributions;
- Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas of the Service. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information through these public venues;
- Communications between you and Crayvit. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related e-mails;
- When you download or use apps created by Crayvit or our subsidiaries, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
We also receive and store any information you enter on our Service or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.
Information from Other Sources
We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. You also may give us permission to access your information in other services – for example, you may link your Facebook account to Crayvit, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (e.g., your friends or contacts). The information we obtain from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check them.
We also receive other types of information about you:
- We receive data about you whenever you interact with Crayvit, such as when you view or otherwise interact with things, use a Crayvit mobile app, contribute to others or make other purchases through Crayvit.
- We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access Crayvit, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, the type (including identifiers) of browser you use, or the pages you visit.
- We receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses the Crayvit Platform or visit a site with a Crayvit feature (such as a social plugin), sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you’re on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to Crayvit, your User ID.
- Sometimes we get data from our affiliates or our advertising partners, customers and other third parties that help us (or them) deliver ads, understand online activity, and generally make Crayvit better.
- We may also put together data about you to serve you ads that might be more relevant to you. We only provide data to our advertising partners or customers after we have removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it, or have combined it with other people’s data in a way that it is no longer associated with you.
When we use the phrase “public information”, we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.
Information you choose to make public
Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of Crayvit, will be able to see it. Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:
- can be associated with you even off Crayvit;
- can show up when someone does a search on Crayvit or on a public search engine;
- will be accessible to the Crayvit-integrated applications and websites you and your friends use; and
- When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public. As a general rule, you should assume that if you do not see a sharing icon, the information will be publicly available.
Information that is always publicly available
The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.
- Name: This helps your friends and family find you.
- Profile Picture: This helps your friends and family recognize you.
Finding your friends on Crayvit
If you choose, you can use our search feature to locate other people with Crayvit accounts through a search of names. If you choose to find your friends through a search of names or usernames on Crayvit then simply type a name to search and we will perform a search on our Service.
If you choose to invite someone to the Service through our “Invite” feature, you may do so directly from your mobile device. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to communications, and because this invitation is coming directly from your personal account, Crayvit does not have access to or control this communication.
Usernames and User IDs
A Username (or Crayvit URL) is a custom link to your Crayv page that you can give to people or post on external websites. Usernames appear in the URL on your timeline. We also use your User ID to identify your Crayvit account. If someone has your Username or User ID, they can use it to access information about you through the Service. For example, if someone has your Username, they can type crayvit.com/Username into their browser and see your public information.
You can access and correct most of your personal data stored by Crayvit by logging into your account.
We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.
Cookies and similar technologies
We use these technologies to do things like:
- recognize you as a repeat visitor;
- improve the quality of our Service;
- make your browsing experience meaningful;
- make Crayvit easier or faster to use;
- enable features and store information about you (including on your device or in your browser cache) and your use of Crayvit;
- deliver, understand and improve advertising;
- monitor and understand the use of our products and services;
- to protect you, others and Crayvit.
When you enter our Site, our web server sends a cookie to your computer which allows us to recognize your computer but not specifically who is using it. By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other customer information when, for example, you log in to the Service, then we know that the cookie information relates to you. Some of the cookies used by our Service are served by us, and some are served by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf.
Log file information
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users to help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.
When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Crayvit. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag, comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive.
