Bizzibrains Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously. We recognize that privacy is an important issue and we design our applications with the protection of privacy in mind. If you want to learn more about what we do in our apps, take a look below. Or if you would like to opt out from the anonymous analytics please use your device and click here. Our Privacy Policy was last updated on December 11th, 2013.

Introduction and how our apps work

The Bizzibrains website is intended for use by parents and Bizzibrains mobile applications are intended for use by the whole family, including young children and their parents. The Bizzibrains Privacy Policy provides information to users of Bizzibrains’ mobile applications and website (Users) about the types of information Bizzibrains gathers about an online User, how we may use that information, whether we disclose that information to anyone and the choices a User has regarding the collection and use of that information. Any information that a User enters, such as photos and names a User enters to create their characters in our book apps, in the main section of one of our apps is not received by or sent to us. All in-app purchases, links to our website, surveys or our other apps in the App Store are behind the parental gate in our application to prevent children from accessing them. We want to learn from the way that our apps are used so that we can make better apps for our Users to enjoy. To do this we collect and use anonymous analytics from our app users. This does not include any personal data. You can read more about this in the Other information we collect and use section below. Our apps do not contain any third party advertising, links to social media, 3rd party services or plug ins. Please contact us at nic@bizzibrains if there is anything you do not understand.

Types of data

“Personal data” is used in this Privacy Policy to mean personally identifiable information that specifically identifies a User as an individual. “Non-personal data” means information that does not directly identify a User. Additionally non-personal data means “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data Bizzibrains collects about the way our Users use our applications or website from which any personally identifiable information has been removed.

What kinds of information do we hold?

We do not require any personal information for you to use our applications or view our basic website. However, during the course of carrying on our business, we may ask you to provide personal information. We may collect the following kinds of personal information: • A user name and an email address (for example, if you choose to sign up to our newsletter or contact us and wish to receive a response); and • Name, address and contact information (for example, if you choose to enter a promotion and we may be required to send you a prize or contact you regarding your entry). If you do not give us any of the personal information that we ask you for, it may affect our ability to meet our obligations to you. For example, if you do not provide us with a valid email address, it will affect our ability to communicate with you, including via our newsletter. In addition, if you enter a competition for a physical product and you do not provide us with a name and address you will not be eligible to win and receive the physical products involved the competition.

Use and disclosure of your personal information

We use your personal information for the purposes for which it was collected and related purposes (which are normally obvious when we collect it), including to: • provide our services to you, to manage and account for the services, and to improve the services; • manage our relationships with you; • provide you with information about new developments with our products and services, and other products or services that may interest you; and • facilitate our internal business operations, including to fulfil our legal requirements and professional obligations. We may disclose personal information for the purposes for which it was collected, and also on a confidential basis: • to our third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who work for us and need to access personal information to do that work; and • as required or permitted by law and/or with your consent. When a parent discloses data about him or herself in the course of contributing user generated content, for example on our facebook page, the information disclosed is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. Bizzibrains is not responsible for any personal data a User makes public in these public forums.

Other information we collect and use

Third party analytical software may be used to automatically collect and use certain data to provide us with information about how Users use Bizzibrains’ applications as well as how applications are performing across different handsets. We do not provide any of our Users personal information to this third party. Information collected may include: platform, SDK version, timestamp, API key (identifier for application), application version, Model, manufacture and OS version of device, session start/stop time, locale (specific location where a given language is spoken), time zone, and network status (WiFi, etc.) The third party that owns the analytical software may see some of this data including the IP address, device type, locale and timezone of our Users.

Information security

We take reasonable steps to protect all information which we hold (including your personal information) from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We take reasonable steps to hold information securely in electronic or physical form. We store information in access controlled premises or in electronic databases requiring logins and passwords. All partners and staff with access to confidential information are subject to confidentiality obligations.
