Privacy Policy

Please refer to our Terms of Use for definition of "ColorSails", the "Service" and "we", "us", "our".

ColorSails recognizes that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit our website, and how we safeguard your information. We never share your personal information with third parties that are not listed in this document. If you choose to use our website, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy.

Information Collected

Here are the types of information ColorSails website may collect. We shall take appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or unauthorized destruction of any data stored. We value your trust in providing us your personal information, and strive to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device. If you choose to log in to our website, you agree to allow us to use cookies to personalize your experience. In addition, third party services we use (see below) may use cookies, subject to their privacy policies (linked below).

Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. Log files are text files produced on our server when you access this website. The information in the log files may include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. No personally identifiable information will be written to the log files we collect.

Information You Provide
If you log in to our website, we may allow you to store various assets in our cloud storage once our service is live. For example, you may be able to upload and store your own images. These assets will be stored securely using Google Cloud Datastore (see below), and we will allow you to delete these assets at any time. Unless you make these assets public using controls on our website, they will not be accessible to anyone but yourself and will be protected by secure authentication, provided by Firebase by Google Inc (see below). In addition, private assets can be accessed using read-only and read-write URLs that you can use to share your assets with trusted parties without requiring them to log in. These URLs contain authentication keys, which are very difficult to guess, but these keys may appear in plain text access logs on routers and computers used to access these URLs. This is a trade off we make to allow easy sharing of your assets. In addition, we may allow you to save assets without logging in. In this case, it is your responsibility to save the read-write URL of your asset in order to access it again.

Email Address
By logging into our website, you are agreeing to share your email address with us so that we can provide you with updates on our service. Opt out instructions will be included in every email that we will send. We will not share your email with any third parties, and it will be stored securely using Google Cloud Datastore (see below).

Third Party Services Collecting Information

Our website uses third party services in order to analyze usage of our website, authenticate our users, and store and process information in the cloud. Here is the information on what data is collected and how it may be used by each of these services.

Google Analytics (Google Inc.)
Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google collects Cookies and Usage Data and uses the data collected to track and examine the use of this website, to prepare reports on its activities (for example, daily website traffic). Google may also share this information with other Google services, for example to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. The collection and usage of this data by Google is covered by the Google Privacy Policy.

Firebase Authentication (Google Inc.)
By registering or authenticating, you allow this website to identify you in order to update you on improvements to our service, and to provide a personalized experience, including storage of assets in our cloud storage. In order to provide log in, we rely on the services of Firebase Authentication, a registration and authentication service provided by Google Inc. To simplify the registration and authentication process, Firebase Authentication can make use of third-party identity providers and save the information on its platform. The collection and usage of this data by Google is covered by the Google Privacy Policy. If you choose to log in, our website will be able to access some data stored by this service, for registration or identification purposes.

Google Cloud Services (Google Inc.)
We rely on Google Cloud Services (Google Inc.) for infrastructure supporting our app. This type of service has the purpose of hosting Data and files that enable this Service to run and be distributed as well as to provide a ready-made infrastructure to run specific features or parts of this Service. Some of these services work through geographically distributed servers, making it difficult to determine the actual location where the personal data is stored. Specifically, we use Google Cloud Datastore to store information associated with your account, including your email and any assets you choose to save using the Service. While we shall take appropriate security measures to ensure the safety of your personal data stored using Google Cloud Datastore, we assume no responsibility in the event that these third party services fail. The Google Cloud Services are governed by the following Terms of Use. Further, because our website is under active development, we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage associated with the loss of information you choose to store using our Service, such as images or color themes.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us so that we will be able to do necessary actions.

Links to Other Websites

This Service may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by us. Therefore, we strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites or services.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, you are advised to review this page periodically for any changes. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. These changes are effective immediately after they are posted on this page.
