We collect the following personal information in connection with the Service:
Apart from the limited personal information described above, Clever Prototypes does not collect and does not wish to receive any personally identifying information. Without limitation, you shall not submit to Clever Prototypes any social security number, financial account number, credit or debit card number (other than the number of the card paying for the Service), driver’s license number or government ID number.
When parents or guardians (or schools and/or teachers acting in an educational context) create accounts for students under 13 years of age, we may collect personally identifiable information – including first name, last name, and email address – regarding the students on whose behalf such accounts are created for the sole purpose of rendering the Service. Students under 13 years of age who use the Service under the supervision of a parent or guardian (or school and/or teacher acting in the educational context) are not prevented from uploading personally identifiable information as part of using the Service. We do not collect, maintain, use, or share student information except as needed to provide and improve the Service, or as authorized by the parent, guardian, or (in the case of a student 13 years of age or older) the student.
We will use commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect all such personally identifiable information.
As part of using single sign-on technologies to access the Service and as part managing access for Users, we may create and store hashed information regarding a User’s email address. A hashed email address consists of a unique alphanumerical value that is identical each time an email address is passed through a hashing algorithm, but not the email address itself. This permits us to identify Users with the same email address across multiple sign-on services without storing the email address.
The Service allows all users to create storyboards using data provided by Clever Prototypes and, optionally, data provided by users. All data uploaded by users is referred to in this Policy as “User Data.”
We, and our third party service providers, may use web tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and clear GIFs in order to operate the Service efficiently and to collect data related to usage of the Service. Such collected data (“Web Tracking Information”) may include the address of the websites you visited before and after you visited the Service, the type of browser you are using, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, what pages in the Service you visit and what links you clicked on, and whether you opened email communications we send to you. In order to collect Web Tracking Information and to make your use of the Service more efficient, we may store cookies on your computer. We may also use web tracking technologies that are placed in web pages on the Service or in email communications to collect information about actions that users take when they interact with the Service or such email communications, and Clever Prototypes’ Contractors (as defined herein) may also do so. We do not correlate Web Tracking Information to individual user Personal Information, except for internal operational, product development, and administrative purposes of the Service. Some Web Tracking Information may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you. You may be able to modify your browser settings to alter which web tracking technologies are permitted when you use the Service, but this may affect the performance of the Service.
We rely on the following legal grounds to process your Personal Information:
Your Personal Information may be supplemented with additional information regarding your activities on the Service; to the extent that such information is linked specifically to you, we will treat that additional information as your Personal Information. We may use your email address to send you marketing materials about Clever Prototypes and its products and services. We may also use Personal Information for the internal operational, product development, and administrative purposes of the Service.
We collect and stores User Data in order to provide the Service to you, and it may be used for the internal operational, product development, and administrative purposes of the Service If you create storyboards that incorporate User Data with a Free Account, or if otherwise marked for publication, User Data will be accessible to the public via the Service and via third-party search engines.
We use Web Tracking Information to administer the Service and to understand how well our Service is working, to store your user preferences, and to develop statistical information on usage of the Service. This allows us to determine which features and content users like best to help us improve our Service, to personalize your user experience, and to measure overall effectiveness.
We will also create statistical, aggregated data relating to our users and the Service for analytical purposes. Aggregated data is derived from Personal Information and User Data but in its aggregated form it does not duplicate or reveal any User Data or relate to or identify any individual. This data is used to understand our customer base and to develop, improve and market our services.
We do not sell Personal Information or User Data, nor do we use or disclose Personal Information or User Data for the building of personal profiles or for the targeting of advertisements to students.

User Data is not disclosed to third parties, except to the extent it is included in storyboards created under Free Accounts, or otherwise shared by or made public by the user.
If you register and provide your email address, we will send you administrative and promotional emails. If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email, or by editing your account settings. All users receive administrative emails, and so you cannot opt out of them while you remain registered.
We disclose Web Tracking Information to Contractors, in order to analyze the performance of the Service and the behavior of users, and to operate and improve the Service.
We may disclose aggregated data that does not contain Personal Information or User Data to any third parties, such as potential customers, business partners, and funding sources, in order to describe our business and operations.

We offer the service in several geographic regions. We define a geographic region as the location where a user is located.
For users within the United States, we process data in data centers located in the United States. We have adopted reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards against accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, access, use, or processing of user data in our possession. We comply with state and federal laws governing the protection of personal information.
For users within the European Union, we transfer data from the European Union to data centers located in the United States for processing. Such processing is performed in accordance with Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and free movement of such data, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). This includes the imposition of required safeguards with respect to accidental, unauthorized or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, access, use or processing of data. Transfers of European Union user data to processors in the United States are made in accordance with the GDPR and subject to the appropriate transfer mechanism, primarily the Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission.
For users not within the United States or the European Union, we transfer data from such regions to the United States for processing. For such users, we have adopted reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards against accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, access, use, or processing of user data in our possession that substantially mirror protections available to users located within the United States.
We will only retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and processed, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, accounting or reporting requirements.
