18. Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) explains 29th Street Publishing’s use of information that we collect when you are using the Service. By using the Service, you are expressly consenting to the practices described in this Policy. This Policy does not apply to the practices of any person or entity other than 29th Street Publishing, including operators of services you may visit before or after visiting the App and the owners or publishers of the publications, content, and products (collectively the “Publications”) you purchase, download or otherwise access through the Service.

(a) Information We Collect

Information collected online can generally be categorized as either non-personal information or personally identifiable information. Non-personal information is information that cannot by itself be traced back to a specific individual.  Personally identifiable information is information you provide to us that is uniquely associated with you, such as your name, telephone number, address, tax information (such as a Social Security Number), credit card or electronic-payment system information, and email address (collectively, “Personally Identifiable Information”). The information (including Personally identifiable information) that we collect and store includes (a) information you enter on the App or give us in any other way, (b) information you provide us when you register for the Service, (c) billing and other information we collect when you purchase Publications through the Service, (d) additional information we collect at various times such as when you provide feedback, change your email preferences, respond to a survey, or communicate with 29th Street Publishing’s customer support, and (e) information collected automatically when you use the Service such as your IP address, the name and ID of your computer, mobile device, and other devices, your operating system, browser type and version, CPU speed, connection speed, and location information based on your IP address and as derived from GPS or similar features on your mobile device and other devices.

(b) How We Use the Information We Collect

We store your Personally Identifiable Information but do not provide it to any third parties. We use this information to provide the Service including sending you notifications and responding to customer support requests.

We will not disclose, sell, or exchange Personally Identifiable Information to or with anyone, without your approval, unless we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary to: comply with the law or legal process; protect or defend our rights or property, or the rights or property of others; enforce these Terms; or respond to claims that the content of any material on our system violates the rights of others. We will aggregate user information and perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our domain and to analyze how and where to use our resources. We share general demographic and interest information with third parties, but such aggregate information is not personally identifiable. We also use the aggregate data collected to inform our sponsors as to the number of people who have seen and “clicked” on their advertisement. In addition, we may compile and disclose aggregate information about our users for promotional or other purposes. For example, we might want to disclose that a certain percentage of our users are located within a particular geographic area or fall within a particular age range.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies. Cookies help us determine how long users view particular content, which particular content (e.g., advertising) users view, which content or sites users link to, and which services members and visitors use. Persistent cookies are used if you choose to enable the auto-login feature. These cookies are randomly generated and uniquely assigned to each user. They are not associated with any Personally Identifiable Information such as name or password.

Session cookies help us keep track of when a person is logged in. Once a user is logged in, session cookies allow us to personalize information on the App for that user.

(c) Changing or Removing Your Information

We will communicate with you via email, to the email address(es) you provide to us. If you would like to cease receiving communications from us, you may either delete your account or notify us that you would no longer like to receive email communications from us by sending an email to this address, and informing us therein that you would no longer like to receive email communications: support@29.io.

19. Children

If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register with the App or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us.

20. Refund Policy

Your satisfaction is very important to us. However, in accordance with Apple’s iTunes Terms and Conditions, all sales are final and no refunds for purchases may will be issued to your iTunes account.
