Privacy Policy

Torn Screen Entertainment, Inc. (“Torn Screen,” we” or “us”) values our users and guests and respects your concerns about online security and privacy. This Privacy Policy governs your use of all games, apps and other online services provided by Torn Screen and use of the Torn Screen website available at www.tornscreen.com and all linked pages owned and operated by Torn Screen (collectively, the “Products”). We believe in providing you with a safe and secure online experience. Our Privacy Policy is intended to provide you with information about how Torn Screen collects and handles personal information about you as you use the Products. By using the Products, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as set forth herein.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into the Torn Screen Terms of Use (www.tornscreen.com/terms.html) by this reference. In addition to reviewing our Privacy Policy, you should also read the Terms of Use. Your use of the Products constitutes your agreement to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy Will Change Over Time

Because we continue to develop the Products and take advantage of technologies to improve the services we provide, our policies will change over time. We may use personal information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to refer to this Privacy Policy from time to time to stay abreast of our most current privacy policy practices. While we will attempt to notify registered users of any material changes in the Privacy Policy by posting a notice on our website or in our apps, or sending an email to the user’s registered email address, it is your responsibility to check for updates to the Privacy Policy and any such update shall be effective even if you do not receive notice of such update. If you do not consent to the updated Privacy Policy, you can discontinue use of the Products. Your continued access and use of the Products will constitute your acceptance of any changes or revisions to our Privacy Policy.

What is Personal Information?

Personal information is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as a name, address, telephone number, email address, other account number, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person, such as information about his or her use of the Products. Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic location and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use the Products may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same Products. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the Products.

Personal Information We Collect

We collect personal information in a number of ways when you use the Products. For example, we collect personal information when you (1) register and set up an account, (2) interact with us on social media channels or (3) respond to messages or contact us by email or otherwise. We also may collect information on how you use or interact with our Products. Further, when you access the Products, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your mobile device id, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring website, and the time and date of your visit and purchases. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. In addition, if you subscribe to optional elements of the Products, billing and credit card information may be required. All such credit card transactions are fully encrypted and your billing and credit card information is collected and stored by a trusted third party. Any third party credit card vendor will be prohibited from using this information for any purpose other than storing the credit card. When you purchase items via our apps (such as those you can purchase in the App Store, via Amazon Kindle or on Google Play), we do not collect or store any payment information from you.

How Torn Screen Uses and Shares Information About You

We try to provide you with the information you need to make informed, reasonable choices with respect to how we use or share your information. Torn Screen uses and shares personal information from you in several ways:

We may use information we have collected about you to provide you with news, notes, recommendations as well as to operate our business and the Products. We may send you marketing communications related to our Products, or to the products or services of third parties we have contracted with. We do not disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties who may want to offer you their own products and services unless you have requested or authorized us to do so.

Any information you post in your profile or provide privately to users, or otherwise make available publicly, may be accessed by other users of the Products. Users reading this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in your public profile or sharing any other information with users.

When you submit information as part of a competition or otherwise interact with our social media channels (for example, by providing a testimonial about one of our Products), we may publish the information you submitted, alongside your name and personal information.

We may share your personal information with third parties or affiliates of Torn Screen where it is necessary for us to complete a transaction or do something you have asked us to do. Likewise, we may share your personal information with third parties or affiliates of Torn Screen with whom we have contracted to perform services on our behalf. Companies that act on our behalf are required to keep the personal information we provide to them confidential and to use the personal information we share only to provide the services we ask them to perform.

Sharing of Your Information in Other Circumstances

In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Torn Screen, our users, our employees or the public. In addition, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition.

Content

From time to time, you will post content to the Products and send content to other users on the Products (collectively “Content”). We may store Content and display it to other users. We may distribute such Content to a wider audience by sharing some or all of it with the other media providers so that they can publish it on their own websites and media platforms as further described in the Terms of Use. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personal information in such Content, this information may be collected and used by others, or otherwise displayed or accessed. We recommend you be cautious in giving out personal information to others in your Content.

Third Party Services

You may access other third party services, such as Facebook, Twitter, and other social media websites (“Third Party Services”), through the Products in order to share selected content with those services, and/or to import information about you and information about people you are connected with on those services. Some Third Party Services may also provide us with information from your accounts to enhance and personalize your use of the Products. You understand that where you allow your account with us to interact with any Third Party Service, we may share data about you with your contacts (and vice versa) in order that you may enjoy playing socially

Communicating with Other Users

You may not harvest personal data (including email addresses) from the Products, and specifically, you may not use email addresses displayed on the Products to ask users to join or contribute to your other products or services.

Our Security Practices

Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, our internal data security policies restrict access to customers’ personal information to authorized employees or contractors for Torn Screen business purposes only. Our employees and contractors are bound by Torn Screen policies that require them to maintain the confidentiality of our users’ personal information. Employees and contractors who violate these requirements are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination. We maintain some physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that are designed to guard our users’ personal information. While we encrypt most of your data transmission through the Products, some transmissions may be unencrypted and may be intercepted by third parties. Further, no data transmission over the Internet even if encrypted can be guaranteed to be private. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Torn Screen cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.

Control of Personal Information

We give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and to view, correct or remove your personal information. However, we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. To contact us directly regarding cancelling your account or correcting or removing other personal information, please email us at customerservice@tornscreen.com.

Cookies, IP Addresses and URLs

We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you use the Products, we automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use. Information may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” which are discussed in more detail below. We also collect various types of “clickstream” information which is information about your browsing behavior, such as IP address information, entry and exit points for the Products, search terms, website addresses you visit, page views, and impressions.

Cookies are small text files placed on your hard drive by a website when you visit. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to the Products, we know who you are and can personalize your visit. In general, we use cookies to collect information so that we can complete transactions you have requested and improve and personalize the Product experience by seeing which areas and features are most popular. Most browsers automatically accept cookies as the default setting. You can modify the setting to reject cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit by editing browser options. If you decide not to accept our cookies, you will still be able to access those parts of the Products available to the general public but you may not be able to use some of the associated features or services, and you may have a less satisfactory experience.

Use of the Products by Minors

The Products are not intended for use by minor children (under the age of 18). Parents and guardians should monitor the use of the Products by minor children. Children under age 13 should not use the Products at all. If a child under age 13 submits information through any Product, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is under age 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as reasonably possible.

Links to Other Websites

The Products may contain links to other websites. Any personal information you provide on the linked pages is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party’s privacy policy. Except as described above, we are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of websites to which we link. Links from the Products to third parties or to other sites are provided for your convenience. We encourage you to learn about their privacy and security practices and policies before providing them with personal information.

This Privacy Policy Applies To United States Customers

The Products are hosted in the United States. This Privacy Policy is intended to comply with privacy laws in the United States and may not comply with all privacy laws in foreign countries. If you are a non-US user of the Products, by using the Products and providing us with data, you acknowledge, agree and provide your consent that your personal information may be processed in the United States for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy. In addition, such data may be stored on servers located outside your resident jurisdiction, which may have less stringent privacy practices than your own. By using the Products and providing us with your data, you consent to the transfer of such data and any less stringent privacy practices.

THE PRODUCTS ARE UNDER CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING. THE PRODUCTS MAY CONTAIN BUGS AND OTHER ERRORS THAT COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS. ANY ISSUES OR ERRORS OF THIS NATURE MAY IMPACT OUR ABILITY TO COMPLY WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

Data Changes

If you terminate your account or delete/change your data or content, we usually update our live databases immediately. However, some data may update more slowly or may be impossible to update and remove, and some old data may remain in our archives and records. Also, we may be unable to propagate changes to partners who receive your data or content. If your account is being terminated or suspended, we may maintain some data to prevent re-registration.
