Introduction

canvas.place provides a social online game, via its internet services ("the Service", "we" or "us").

This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information that is collected from visitors to the Site and users of the App and/or the Services.

Infomation we Collect

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect information from you, as further described below:

Infomation you provide

We collect information from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you register for access to the Services or use certain Services.

Infomation we collect may include, but not be limited to, your username, and any data sent over our chat services.

Cookies and usage data

When you interact with us through the Services, we receive and store certain information such as an IP address, cookies, and your activities within the Services. We may store such information or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by affiliates, agents or service providers. While your IP address is stored for the purpose of preventing cheating, it is irreversibly hashed. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of messages users have sent, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers.

We may use third party web site analytic tools such as Google Analytics on our website that employ cookies to collect certain information concerning your use of our Services. However, you can disable cookies by changing your browser settings. In addition, on your first visit of the site, you will be asked to consent to these Google Analytics cookies, allowing you to opt out by choosing ‘Reject’. If this option is chosen, the cookies placed on your browser by Google Analytics will be removed.

Where we process infomation

Infomation is stored and processed in the United States, and is subject to American Data Protection laws. No matter where you are located, you accept that your data will be held in New Jersey, United States.

Our use of your infomation

We will only use the infomation you provide us for purposes outlayed in this privacy policy. If you provide information for a certain reason, we may use the information in connection with the reason for which it was provided.

Our disclosure of your infomation

We will never sell or share user data with any third-party. We may only disclose your data if required to by law.

Minors

Our Services are for users age 13 and over and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

Third party websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Services. The Services may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by us (the “Third Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from the Services do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Security

We take steps to protect data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Otherwise, you are solely responsible for the security of your account.

Your Control

You may deactivate or delete your account at any time. Deactivating your account removes it from public view until you sign in again, while deleting your account schedules your account for permanent deletion from our servers within 7 (seven) days unless you sign in before that date. Once this permanent deletion occurs, we retain no data on your user, other than pixels, chat messages, and some actions you may have done, but without reference to your specific user properties (such as, but not limited to, username and account creation date).

You may download a copy of the data that is held on your account, which includes any information directly relating to your account, and much of the information referencing your account.

Changes to this policy

We will attempt to notify you within 7 (seven) days, but that is not mandatory for changes.
