Painterly TV Privacy Policy

 

Last Update: February 1, 2019

 

General

At Painterly TV (“Painterly”) we recognize that privacy is important and we are committed to protecting your privacy rights (“Policy”). We use the information we collect about you to process orders, to improve the content of the Website and to provide a more personalized experience. We may also use it to periodically inform you about changes on our Website and new products and services. We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

 

This Policy applies to all of the products, services and websites offered by Painterly, the mobile or tablet versions thereof, any Painterly software, and any applications created by Painterly whether available through a social networking site or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies (collectively, the “Service”). Please note that the availability of any Painterly applications on a social networking site, mobile or tablet device, internet television or other technology platform does not indicate any relationship or affiliation between Painterly and such social networking site, mobile or tablet device, or internet television or other technology platform.

 

If you have any questions about this Policy, please feel free to contact us.

 

By using the Service, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as outlined in this Policy. As this Policy may be amended from time to time, you should visit this page periodically to review any changes to the Policy. Through your continued use of the Website after changes are made to the Policy, you accept the Policy as modified.

 

Information We May Collect and Sources of Information

 

Information you provide

When you sign up for a Painterly account we ask you for personal information (such as your name, e-mail address and an account password and may require your date of birth, gender, mailing and billing address, and zip code). At the time you register as a member or during your free trial period, we also request credit card or other payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. We may combine the information you submit under your account with information from other Painterly services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.

 

We make your profile available to other users according to the privacy settings you set for yourself as part of your profile. Your user name will be identified to us and to any recipient of messages you send through the Service.

 

We also use your name, e-mail address and other information on our system to notify you of new product releases, service notifications, events, and to solicit your feedback and input. We may also use your information, or a portion thereof, to send you marketing materials and/or Painterly newsletters or other information Painterly thinks you may need, unless you notify Painterly that you do not wish to receive such materials. Please contact us to request that you not be sent any or all of such information.

 

Painterly cookies

 

When you visit Painterly, we send one or more cookies. A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that a website stores on your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our Service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Painterly features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. Cookies collect the date and time of your visit and your registration information.

 

These cookies may either be permanent or temporary. Painterly uses permanent cookies. This means that the cookie stays on your hard drive until you delete it. You can delete our cookie at any time by following the instructions contained in your browser’s help file, or by contacting that company providing your browser’s technical support. Painterly does not use cookies to store information such as credit card numbers, telephone numbers, or any other sensitive information.

 

Painterly may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, or for other purposes.

 

Activity Information

In order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Service, including information about users accessing the Website such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time. By using the Service, you consent to our retaining all of your Activity Information.

 

IP Address

 

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. We may retain your IP address in order to help us diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our Website, to help identify you, to gather broad anonymous demographic information (such as the number of visitors from a geographic area), to enforce compliance with the Website terms and conditions, or otherwise in order to protect our services, sites, customers, or others.

 

Log information

 

When you use the Service, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

 

User communications

 

When you send email or other communication to Painterly, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.

 

Affiliated sites

 

We offer some of our services in connection with other websites. Personal information that you provide to those websites may be sent to Painterly in order to deliver the Service. We process such information in accordance with this Policy. The affiliated websites may have different privacy practices and we encourage you to read their privacy policies.

 

Links

 

Painterly may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our Website.

 

Other websites

 

This Policy applies to websites and services that are owned and operated by Painterly. We do not exercise control over the websites displayed as search results or links from within our various services. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.

 

How We Use the Information We Collect

 

Personal information

We may use your personal information for the purposes described in this Policy and/or privacy notice for specific services. Such purposes include, but are not limited to:

    Providing our products and services to users, including the display of customized content and advertising;

    Sharing information to our business partners who perform core services (such as hosting, billing, data storage, security, and reporting services) related to the operation of the Website and Service;

    Collecting and processing information about your actual location to provide location aware products and services and other content;

    Verifying your identity;

    Following up with transactions initiated on the Website;

    Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services;

    Ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and

    Developing new services.

 

Painterly processes personal information on its servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside your own country. We provide personal and non-personal information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted third parties or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such personal information based on our instructions and in compliance with the appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

 

We may also disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

 

(1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Painterly or its parent company, subsidiaries, or affiliates,

 

(2) protect and defend the rights or property of Painterly or the users of the Website, or

 

(3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Website.

 

Choices for personal information

 

When you sign up for the Service, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

 

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, and you decline, Painterly may not be able to provide its Service to you.

 

Maintenance of personal information

 

You can access your information contained in Painterly’s database by contacting us. If you believe any of your information is incorrect or needs updating, please let us know at the email address listed in this section. Painterly will use reasonable efforts to correct your information and our records upon verification of the requested change. If you no longer wish to receive email notifications from Painterly, please let us know by contacting us. In the text of your email, specify which notifications you no longer wish to receive and provide your exact name, email address and/or address so that we can do our best to ensure that you stop receiving the notifications that you no longer wish to receive. After such a request is received, Painterly will use reasonable efforts to refrain from including you when sending such notifications to Painterly’s visitors/users/customers.

 

We do not currently maintain any procedures for you to review the information that we collect about you.

 

Retention of personal information

 

When you close or de-activate your account or if your account is otherwise terminated, we have the right, but not the obligation, to store your personal information, settings, saved and completed classes, and teachers you have followed.

 

Information Security

 

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of 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 restrict access to personal information to Painterly employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

 

However, please note that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so while Painterly strives to protect your information, Painterly cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you voluntarily give to Painterly.

 

Accessing and updating personal information

 

When you use the Services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

 

Other

 

Website Areas Beyond Painterly’s Control

Third party links, co-brand relationships and public forums — In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, Painterly may choose various third party websites to link to, link from, and frame within, the Website. Painterly also may participate in co-branding and other relationships to offer e-commerce and other services and features to its users. However, even if the third party is affiliated with Painterly, we have no control over these linked sites, each of who have separate privacy and data collection practices independent of Painterly. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions, and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such websites. Please make sure you are comfortable with the privacy practices of every site you visit before providing the site with your personal information. These linked sites are only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk.

 

We also may make chat rooms, forums and message boards available to you on the Website. Please remember that we cannot control the information that is shared by members and that anything you voluntarily provide in any public area of the Internet will be publicly available to other visitors on that web site and potentially to other third parties. Thus, please note that you should always exercise caution when deciding to publicly disclose any of your personal information in these and similar areas.

 

Enforcement

 

Painterly regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or Painterly’s treatment of personal information by contacting us.

 

When we receive formal written complaints at this address, it is Painterly’s policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Painterly and an individual.

 

Users Under 18

Painterly’s content is not directed at users under eighteen (18) years of age, and if you provide information about yourself as a user of Painterly, you are representing that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under eighteen (18) years of age, but if we do become aware of having collected personally identifiable information from a user who is younger than eighteen (18) years of age, we will remove such information from our files.

 

Changes To This Policy

 

We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will at a minimum revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy when we post the new Privacy Policy.
