Privacy Policy

Introduction

Starwords ("we" or "us") values privacy. This privacy policy is effective 15th June 2016; it summarises what information we might collect from a registered user or other visitor ("you"), and what we will and will not do with it.

Please note that this privacy policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that Starwords does not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by us. If you visit a web site that we mention or link to, be sure to review its privacy policy before providing the site with information.

What we do with your personally identifiable information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. "Personally identifiable information" means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, company, email address, phone number, address
  • any account-preference information you provide us
  • your computer's IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet
  • session data, so that our computer can 'talk' to yours while you are logged in

If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission although unless you opt out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about our services and products and modifications to the Terms of Service;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have requested;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, analytics);
    • as required by law;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • as necessary to enforce the Terms of Service;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of Starwords, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Other information we collect

We may collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you, such as (for example) the IP address of your computer. We may use this information, individually or in the aggregate, for technical administration of our web site; research and development; and to help us focus our marketing efforts more precisely.

Cookies

Starwords uses "cookies" to store personal data on your computer. We may also link information stored on your computer in cookies with personal data about specific individuals stored on our servers. If you set up your Web browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox) so that cookies are not allowed, you might not be able to use some or all of the features of our web site.

External data storage sites

We may store your data on servers provided by third party hosting vendors with whom we have contracted.

Information collected from children

Starwords is intended to be used with adult supervision. You must be at least 13 years old to use Starwords's web site and download the app. Starwords does not knowingly collect information directly from children under 13. We may however request information about your child, for example, their name and date of birth.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy as we deem necessary or appropriate because of legal compliance requirements or changes in our business practices. If you have provided us with an email address, we will endeavour to notify you, by email to that address, of any material change to how we will use personally identifiable information.
