Like many websites, we may also use “cookies” or similar technologies to collect information about you or your use of the Site or the App. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record keeping purposes. For example, we may assign a cookie to you, to limit the number of times you see a particular offer or to help better determine which offers we have that serve you. Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer. If you choose to eliminate cookies, the full functionality of the Site and/or the App may be impaired by you. We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them.
Web beacons are images embedded in a web page or email for the purpose of analyzing or measuring site usage and activity. We, or a third party service provider acting on our behalf, may use web beacons or similar technologies to help us analyze Site and App usage and improve the Services.
6. Changing or Deleting Your Information
You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Data provided in your registration or account profile by changing your “account settings” (for applicable Sites and Apps). In cases where a person or company provided you with access to the Site or App, such changes to Personal Data should be requested of that party.
StorySlab is committed to safeguarding your Personal Data. In order to maintain the safety of your Personal Data, we implement a variety of security measures. We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, amongst other protection mechanisms, to maintain the security of your accounts and data, as well as to protect our systems from unauthorized access.
Our servers are in a secure facility. Access requires multiple levels of authentication. The system is monitored 24-hours a day, seven days a week. There are physical access controls for all buildings.
Your Personal Data is stored behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons. These persons have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.
If you share or transfer your Personal Data outside of the Sites or Apps, by email for example, we are not responsible for the release of your Personal Data.
Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) is a protocol designed to enable applications to transmit information back and forth securely. An SSL certificate is a means by which web servers prove their identity to web browsers, allowing a secure site to communicate privately with the web browser via the HTTPS protocol. An SSL certificate is digitally “signed” by a certificate authority that web browsers already trust. This allows your web browser to verify the identity of a secure site like ours before sending your Personal Data. All connections to our servers & APIs require SSL, ensuring your data is encrypted and secure at all times.
All payment transactions are processed through a gateway provider and no sensitive payment information is stored or processed on our servers. We are fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
8. Our Policy Toward Children
The Site and the App is not directed to children under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Data without their consent, he or she should contact us at privacy@StorySlab.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Data, we will delete such information from our files.
9. What Happens When You Click on Another Internet Site?
You should be aware that other Internet sites that are linked from the Site, App or an email message from us may contain privacy provisions that differ from the provisions of this Policy. To ensure your privacy is protected, we recommend that you review the privacy statements of these other linked sites, applications, or other digital platforms, as this Policy does not govern those sites.
