Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when Artace Inc. (“Magnus”) collects, uses and shares your information when you use our Services. Magnus receives your information through our website or the services, features, content, applications or widgets offered by Magnus (the “Services”). For example, you send us information when you use the Services from our website, or take a photo with our app. When using any of our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Irrespective of which country you reside in or supply information from, you authorize Magnus to use your information in the United States and any other country where Magnus operates. If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@magnus.net.

The main points to understand

When using the Services with default settings, you have a publicly available Magnus-account, where other users can follow your activity. If you want your art-experiences to be private, you can change your Privacy Setting from “Anyone” to “Nobody” in the app.

When using the Services from certain countries, with the default settings unchanged, you will receive a weekly email from Magnus containing personalized information. You can unsubscribe from these mails at any time, including during sign-up.

Information Collection and Use

We collect and use your information below to provide our Services and to measure and improve them over time.

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a Magnus account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, may be listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results.

You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from Magnus. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your Magnus account, including through third-party services and client applications.

Your account settings control whether others can find you by your email address. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your Magnus account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between the Services and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting.

Following, Followers, Art Ratings: Our Services are designed to help you share information with the world. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from Magnus, but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your public user profile information may be searchable by search engines. When you share information or content like photos or ratings via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.

Other Communications from Magnus:  Magnus and its affiliates may use your information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you.  You may unsubscribe from such communications using the means described above.

Location Information: Our Services work best when the location information is send from your device. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as creating lists of availability of certain artworks. You may choose to switch off your location information in your settings.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. Magnus may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting session cookies or to prompt you before accepting a session cookie from the websites you visit. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies. In addition, cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove persistent cookies.

Log Data: Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services or interact with our email notifications. Magnus uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customize, and improve them. If not already done earlier, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.

Aggregated Personal Information: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Magnus may conduct research on its user demographics, interests and behavior based on the personal information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Magnus may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Magnus may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Third-Party Service Providers: Magnus uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address.

DNT Signals: Our Service currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operates as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Service Providers: We engage service providers to perform functions and provide services to us in the United States and abroad. We may share your private personal information with such service providers subject to confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions.

Law and Harm: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Magnus’ rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

Business Transfers: In the event that Magnus is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Modifying Your Personal Information

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

Exclusions

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any personal information collected by Magnus other than personal information collected through the Services. This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to Magnus through the Services or through any other means. This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the Services, such as forums, any ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, and other unsolicited submissions (collectively, “Unsolicited Information”). All Unsolicited Information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and Magnus shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution.

Links to Other Web Sites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Services. The Services may contain links to other web sites or services not operated or controlled by Magnus (the “Third Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from the Services do not imply that Magnus endorses or has reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Integrating Social Networking Services

One of the special features of the Services is that they allow you to enable or log in to the Services via various social networking services like Facebook or Twitter (“Social Networking Service(s)”). By directly integrating these services, we make your online experiences richer and more personalized. To take advantage of this feature, we will ask you to log into or grant us permission via the relevant Social Networking Service. When you add a Social Networking Services account to the Service or log into the Service using your Social Networking Services account, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Social Networking Service and your data contained within that Social Networking Service.  As part of such integration, the Social Networking Service will provide us with access to certain information that you have provided to the Social Networking Service, and we will use, store and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  However, please remember that the manner in which Social Networking Services use, store and disclose your information is governed by the policies of such third parties, and Magnus shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Social Networking Services that may be enabled within the Service.

You may also have the option of posting your Services activities to Social Networking Services when you access content through the Services (for example, you may post to Facebook that you performed an activity on the Service); you acknowledge that if you choose to use this feature, your friends, followers and subscribers on any Social Networking Services you have enabled will be able to view such activity.

Security

Magnus takes reasonable steps to protect the personal information provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, messages sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal information to Magnus.

Changes to this Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be at http://www.magnus.net/privacy. If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you via an @Magnusapp update or email to the email address associated with your account. Please review this policy periodically, and especially before you provide any information. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

Effective: 30th March 2016, New York
