Privacy Policy

Thanks for using Storyform! We take privacy seriously and are committed to providing clear and transparent policies with regards to how your information is collected and used. With that said, we also require users to completely agree to our ‘Privacy Policy’ before using our service, so we recommend that you take the time to read through this entire document.

Your Agreement

Information Submitted By You

When registering on our site, we may collect your name, email address or other information to help you with your experience. In addition, we provide social network authentication with Facebook and Google. When signing up with one of these services, you authorize us to access the information available on those profiles, including but not limited to: your name, date of birth, profile picture, gender, location, website address, and email address.

This information is collected at the time you register for an account on our site, update your subscriptions, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to any marketing materials, or fill out any other forms present on our site.

If you choose to subscribe to one of our premium services, we may collect credit card or additional payment information from you. However, it’s important to note that we do not store any of this payment information or process any of your payments on our servers, but rather use a third party payment service known as ‘Stripe.’ Therefore, any information regarding your payment processing and security must be verified in Stripe’s own Terms of Service Agreement and Privacy Policy.

The payment processor, ‘Stripe’, may provide us with unique authentication tokens to make payments requests with. The payment processor ‘Stripe’ may also provide us with information such as your name, credit card type, expiration date, and the last four digits of your credit card number. This information is used only to make single payment requests, or register the user for an ongoing subscription that requires automatic payments in the future.

In addition, Storyform may also request and receive any payment history between the user and Storyform.

Non Personal Information

Whenever you visit our site, we may also collect and store non personal information including but not limited to your IP address, location, browser, referral URL, and operating system. However, this information alone, without consent from you or form your internet service provider, cannot be used to identify you.

Use of Information

We may use or disclose the information that we collect from you in the following ways:

Cookies

We do not use cookies for tracking purposes. If you desire you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. If you disable cookies in your browser, some of our features may or may not also be disabled or affected.

Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Business Transfers

If Storyform, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Storyform goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Storyform may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Third Parties

Occasionally, at our discretion, Storyform may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

We honor ‘Do Not Track’ (DNT) signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when DNT browser mechanism is in place. It’s also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking

Security

Information Protection

Any personal information that we do store is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

In the event of a breach

No site is safe from hackers. However, if a data breach should occur, Storyform will comply with the Fair Information Practices Principles and will notify you immediately through email and through notifications on our website.

Compliance

We agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

Age Restrictions

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13. Nor do we permit the use of our services to any child that is 13 years old or younger. If you are 13 years old or younger, we ask that you stop using our services immediately and do not submit any information to us.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

To be accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at hello@storyform.co and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
