Here at Toon-FX each and every one of us has at some point been hurt (beat up, given a wedgie, had a girlfriend break up with us) because someone gave out information about us that we had asked them not to. Therefore, we take privacy very seriously here.
Collection of Information:
We collect a variety of information from you if you use our web sites or software products. Some of this information is personally identifiable (meaning we have it and know it is your information), and some of it is non-personally identifiable (meaning we have it but do not know it is your information).
If you use our web sites and join the mailing list, you will be asked for certain personally identifiable information (your name, email address, zip code, and date of birth). If you purchase something from our web sites you will be asked to provide us with additional information (your address, phone number, credit card information, etc.) for payment processing.
There are a few situations where information may be collected without your explicit consent. Toon-FX uses such information to measure traffic patterns on our web sites and to facilitate and evaluate usage of the products and services.
We collect non-personally identifiable information using cookies, server logs, and single-pixel or transparent images in HTML-based emails. The images in the HTML-based emails allow us to track how many people open the emails we send out. In addition, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, referring or exit web pages, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer.
Most of our software, when run, will automatically contact our servers to check for new versions. (This functionality may be disabled in the software preferences).
When you install our software sends our servers non-personally identifiable information confirming that the software has actually been installed will be sent to us. (We use such information in aggregate only for diagnostic and planning purposes.)
Some of our software products may automatically contact our servers to retrieve rotating interface images, including advertisements in some cases, that are displayed in the software. (No personally identifiable information is sent when this occurs.)
How We Use the Information:
We do our best to use your information only in ways that directly improve our web sites and services. We may do the following with your information:
Use it for non-marketing or administrative purposes, including but not limited to notifying you of developments relating to your transactions on the web site or to your account, requesting your feedback on our web site and services via surveys, and/or for customer services or data security-related purposes. We will not send you any commercial or marketing messages without your explicit consent. If you subscribe to our email list we will send you our email newsletter. You will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe.
Provide it to third party companies solely as necessary to process transactions relating to your purchase and/or sale of content, software or other materials and/or to maintain your accounts. We, or these parties on our behalf, may also provide information (such as name, credit card number, tax id number, etc.) to banks, other financial entities that process credit card transactions, and/or applicable governmental and tax authorities. We will NOT share any of this type of information with other, third party companies for their own commercial or marketing purposes without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-out.
Share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information (including anonymous usage patterns, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, click rates, etc.) with third party companies that wish to learn more about usage patterns for software downloads, services, advertisements, and/or promotions associated with the web site.
Transfer or assign all information we have collected as part of a merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control of our company. Please recognize and understand that in the event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is secured, used and/or disclosed.
How We Secure The Information:
To protect your privacy and the security of your personally identifiable information we take commercially reasonable steps, including:
Encrypting your address, credit card number, social security number and/or tax identification number once it is transmitted to us and always storing such information in an encrypted form.
Requiring a unique password, to verify your identity before granting you access to your account information, including to make corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
Internally reviewing our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
We always restrict access to personal information to Toon-FX employees, contractors and agents, and other third-parties who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our web site and services. These individuals or parties are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
Despite all of these measures, please understand that we are a web-based service. We cannot, and do not, ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us; if this makes you too nervous, please do not use our web site.
