By using or accessing our website or any of our products, services or applications (the “Services”) in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways.

What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services, but not to the practices of companies we do not own or control, or people that we do not manage. We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize, provide, and improve our services, to allow you to set up a user account and profile, to contact you and allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, and to analyze how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us.  Instead, please have your parent or legal guardian supply us with their e-mail address and contact information to gain access to the Services and discuss the terms of this Privacy Policy.  We will use such contact information to send notifications regarding any changes in this Privacy Policy or any communications about any use of the Services.  If we learn that we have collected personal information from anyone under the age of 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.  Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not collect personal information from users who identify themselves as under the age of 13 except where we receive verifiable parental consent.  If you believe that anyone under the age of 18 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at https://www.wavecreststudios.com/contact/.

Will WaveCrest ever change this Privacy Policy?

We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by either placing a notice on the http://www.wavecreststudios.com, by sending you an email, and/or by requiring your review of such changes prior to your continued use of the Services. Please note that if you have opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you have not provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used.

What Information does WaveCrest Collect?

For Smartwatch Clock Faces:

Our clock face apps, available for Fitbit and other devices, may display information such as heart rate, step count, or other fitness data when viewing the app. The app does not store or utilize that data in any way other than to display it on the clock face. You may be required to permit the app to access such information before using the app, but our app never transmits the data anywhere.

For Other Services:

Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. For example, through the registration process and/or through your account settings on some of our services and apps, we may collect Personal Information such as your name, email address, birthdate, profile photo, or your company name. We may also collect and store authorization tokens for interacting with third-party accounts that you choose to use and connect to our Services (for example, for authorizing payment through PayPal, interacting with third party social networks, or other third party sites). Certain information may be required to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.

We may communicate with you if you have provided us the means to do so. For example, if you have given us your email address, we may send you promotional email offers on behalf of other businesses, or email you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us improve our services.

Information Collected Automatically

Whenever you interact with some of our Services, we may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, operating system, device identification, the type of browser and/or device you are using to access our Services, “cookie” information, your score and other quantifiable information in the game you are playing, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people, as well as to track views and logins to facilitate collaboration through the Services. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. If you click on a link to a third party website or service, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we are not responsible for their privacy policies and practices.

We may use this data to customize content for you based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.

Information that is no longer personally identifiable: We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you are not individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners, who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. However, we never disclose aggregate usage information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.

You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service, like a third party credit card processing vendor such as PayPal. We have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites or businesses as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to an affiliated website or business, please review all such business’ or websites’ policies.

Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.

Protection of WaveCrest and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of WaveCrest, our employees, our users, or others.
