What Kind of Information is Collected?
There are two types of data that may be collected. The first one is called personal data. This is personally identifiable information that identifies a user as an individual. Tinkerstories does not collect personal data in any of its kids apps. We believe children should not be exposed to unnecessary advertising. Tinkerstories may collect personal data that parents voluntarily provide on the website.
The second type of data is non personal data which doesn’t directly identify an individual or which may have been personal information but has had the personally identifiable information removed. Tinkerstories may collect non personal information about the use of the website and apps to help us improve our services. Usage data is collected within the apps to improved repeated usage, and this data stays stored in the device and is not transmitted to third parties.
More about Personal Data
Our apps do not collect any personal data, show any ads, or share your information with third parties. The app may use information from prior playthroughs to make readings familiar. Our website, Tinkerstories.com, does collect personal data when a parent subscribes to a newsletter, submits content to a forum or blog, or requests technical support. This data may include a name (screen or nickname), gender, age range, email address, mailing or shipping address, telephone number, and payment information. This information may be used to provide services and the sites to you, to process and fulfill your orders, to contact you about orders and new services if consent to receive them has been given. If you contact us for help we will only use your email address to reply to your question. Please note that if a parent posts personal information about themselves in a community forum or blog in the parent section, in addition to being collected, this data is made public for others to see. The parent is responsible for the disclosure of any such data in those forums.
A Word about What We Might Disclose
As you can see, we collect minimal personal data from parents who wish to provide it, and some nonpersonal data for internal use only or in conjunction with third parties (eg. mailing list services) to help us operate, analyze, and improve our sites and services. In addition, we may disclose your information to additional parties if we believe we are required to by law, by a judicial proceeding, to protect Tinkerstories rights and properties, or to investigate fraud, intellectual property infringement, and any other conduct that might be illegal or expose Tinkerstories or a user of its services to legal liability. In addition, Tinkerstories may disclose your information in the event of a change or proposed change in the ownership of the company; for example, a sale, a merger, or bankruptcy.
Parents may disclose information about themselves by posting in the public forums on the site. Tinkerstories is not responsible for what parents say and post in these sections.
We may include links to third parties from our website or services. Tinkerstories isn’t responsible for these companies and including a link to them doesn’t mean that Tinkerstories endorses them. So be
sure to check their privacy policies if you decide to visit them. And remember, your use of Tinkerstories sites and services may also be subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of other services that Tinkerstories doesn’t control such as mobile application stores, mobile software platforms, online social media sites, or payment processors.
Tinkerstories uses generally accepted security measures and safeguards in an attempt to keep the data it collects secure and requires that the third parties it works with agree to do the same. The measures and safeguards include limiting access to the data to those persons who need it to complete their work for Tinkerstories, using a fire-wall protected environment, and storing personal information in secure operating environments. That said, Tinkerstories cannot and does not guarantee and does not accept liability for unintentional disclosure.
