Litesprite Privacy Policy

Last update: 05/08/2020

Litesprite, Inc. (“Litesprite,” “us,” “we,” or “our”) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy in connection with your use of our website, www.litesprite.com (the “Website(s)”), applications (“Apps”) and other products, services and features thereof (the Website, the Apps and such other products, services and features are collectively referred to herein as the “Product” or “Products”, which may be updated from time-to-time at the sole discretion of Litesprite). This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) and any other documents referred to herein set forth the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, in connection with the Products will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal data and how we will collect, use and disclose your personal data

1. DATA WE MAY COLLECT

We may collect and process the following data about you:

  • Personal data including, for example, your name, e-mail address, password, age, gender, your answers to questions asked within the app, and in certain instances, telephone number. For better service from us, you are encouraged to provide accurate data but not required to.
  • Data about your usage of the Products and data collected by tracking technologies as further described in section 4 below that may identify you as an individual or allow online contact with you as an individual.
  • Litesprite does not collect or process credit or debit card (“Payment Card”) data. Apple and Google collect Payment Card data for in-app purchases made through our App(s), and our payment processor collects Payment Card data for purchases made through our Website(s). Payment processors may provide us with some limited data related to you, such as a unique, anonymous token that enables you to make additional purchases using the data they’ve stored, and your card’s type, expiration date, billing address, and the last four digits of your card number.
  • Device information such as operating system version, device type, and system performance data.
  • Data collected via tracking technologies, as fully described in section 4.

2. CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY

The security of your personal data is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal data submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. If you have any questions about the security of your personal data, or would like to view, edit, modify, or delete the information we’ve stored, you can contact us at socks@litesprite.com. We do not provide your personal data to any third party without your specific consent, as defined by applicable law, unless responding to government subpoena.

3. NEWSLETTERS OR OTHER ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS

If you sign up to receive promotional materials from us via email and/or (push notifications) we will use the data you give us to provide the communications you have requested. If you inform us that you wish to cancel email promotional materials by selecting “unsubscribe” at the bottom of such communication or by emailing us at socks@litesprite.com, we will remove you from our mailing list. If you no longer wish to receive push notifications, you may turn them off at the device level.

If you provide your phone number to us directly or through a third-party for the specific purpose of receiving an SMS message with a link to our Apps, you will receive such SMS message (the “SMS Service”). Standard text message rates will apply.

4. TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

Litesprite and our analytics partners use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts to enable a service to recognize your device so you don’t have to provide the same data several times during one task, to recognize that you may have already given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested, and to measure how people are using the Products.

We use local storage, such as HTML5, to store content data and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on the Products also use HTML5 to collect and store data. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5.

We partner with third parties, such as Facebook and Google, to manage our advertising of the Products on other sites or platforms as well as across your other devices based on your past visits to our Website. Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather data about your activities within the Products to deliver such advertising to you, such as retargeting ads. We are not always able to respond to do-not-track signals. For more data about interest-based ads, including how to opt-out of having your web-browsing data used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices. Please note that this does not opt you out of being served ads. You may continue to receive generic ads on these third party platforms. You may also opt out of receiving ads across devices by adjusting your ad preference in your Google account.

We use third party trackers to let us know when users have visited the Products by “clicking-through” our sponsored advertising or content hosted on third party platforms. The Products use Google Analytics code to gather statistical data. Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the Products and the volumes of usage of the Products. This is done to ensure that the Products are available when you want them and are fast. For more data on how Google Analytics processes this data, visit www.google.com/analytics.

MOBILE ANALYTICS

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. This software may record data such as how often you engage with the Products, the events that occur within the Products, aggregated usage and performance data, and where the Applications were downloaded from. We may link the data we store within the analytics software to any personal data you submit within the mobile application.

5. WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

All data you provide to us through the Products is stored on our secure servers located in the US. All payment data is processed by Apple or Google and is never stored on Litesprite’s servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Products, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone and suggest that your change your password frequently.

Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Products; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

6. YOUR DATA RIGHTS

Upon request, Litesprite will permanently and irrevocably anonymize your data such that it can never be reconstructed to identify you as an individual. You can email socks@litesprite.com. However, this is not an absolute right and Litesprite may have legal or legitimate grounds for keeping such data.

You may access your personal data to modify or update at any time by emailing socks@litesprite.com.
We will respond to your request in a reasonable timeframe in accordance with applicable law.

7. USES MADE OF THE DATA

Litesprite does not share user’s Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Litesprite shares anonymized information about app usage or answers to user surveys only when performing clinical research or working with outside vendors to improve the player experience, and PII is never included. Player information is encrypted in transit and at rest, and analytics are conducted without any PII. Minimal PII, such as email address, is collected and is used only for features such as login and player-initiated password reset. We use information held about you in the following ways:
