Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on July 19, 2016.

This Privacy Policy explains how we (Bitstrips, Inc.) collect, use, and share information (including personal information) about you when you access or use our Services, which are our website, mobile applications, and other online products and services that link to this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, just contact us at privacy@bitstrips.com.

Information We Collect

When you access or use our Services, we may collect information about you as described below.

Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our Services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our Services require you to set up an account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: an email address, a password, and your name. When you create an avatar, we collect the choices you make about how that avatar appears, such as the avatar's skin tone, gender, body type, hair color, and clothing.

Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through our Services, such as search terms. It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: When you contact customer support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our Services, we collect information about which of our Services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you searched for a particular Bitmoji and created a new avatar. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our Services (to learn about how you can control some of this information, be sure to read the aptly titled Control over Your Information section below):

Information We Collect from Third Parties

We may also obtain information about you from other sources and combine that with information we collect directly. For example, we may collect information about you when you post content to our pages or feeds on third-party social media sites or if you use credentials from a third-party site or service to create an account or log into our Services. We may also obtain information from our parent, subsidiary and affiliate companies, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the information we collect through our Services.

How We Use Information

We may use the information we collect to:

We may also store some information locally on your device. For example, we may store information as local cache so that you can open our apps and view content faster.

How We Share Information

We may share information about you in the following ways:

Information You Choose to Share with Third Parties

Our Services may contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations, or be a co-branded or third-party-branded service that’s being provided jointly with or by another company. By accessing those links, using the third-party integration, or using a co-branded or third-party-branded service, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our Services.

Control over Your Information

Analytics Services Provided by Others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons, and similar tracking technologies on our Services. These companies may collect information about how you use our Services and other websites and online services over time and across different services. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity.

Users Outside the United States and Canada

We may collect your personal information from, transfer it to, and store and process it in the United States, Canada, and other countries whose local data-protection and privacy laws may offer fewer protections than those in your country of residence or from any country where you use or access our Services.

Children

Our Services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under 13. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13.

Revisions to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we do, we will let you know by revising the date at the top of this policy. We may also provide you with additional notice, such as adding a statement to our homepage or notifying you in our applications.
