EU Personal Data
If you reside in the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional privacy rights in relation to your Personal Data under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
U.S. School-Based Users
If you are a high school student and have an account provided by your school (a “U.S. School-based Student”), you must be at least 13 years of age to access the Services.
When you register with us and become an Artclever Member, we will ask you to provide Personal Data. “Personal Data” refers to the information that includes, but is not limited to, your name and email address, and can be used to contact or individually identify you. Please note that we do not collect your credit card or billing information. Transactions on Artclever that involve billing and payment are processed by PayPal and Stripe, and their respective privacy policies apply.
Personal data or content that you voluntarily reveal in public areas becomes publicly accessible and can be collected and utilized by other users for any purpose. Your profile pages (“Profile”) and online classrooms that you participate in are usually open to the public. You have the ability to adjust your account settings to limit access to your profile, and you can delete content that you post in public classrooms. If you need help with controlling your account privacy settings or deleting content, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The removal of posted content does not guarantee complete or thorough removal of the content or information (e.g., some content may remain on our servers in some form even though it is not visible to other users). You should be cautious before sharing your personal data through these or any other public platforms.
For instance, if you decide to create an Artclever account, you will have a profile on the site that displays your full name and basic information, such as your location and bio. You can add more optional information to your profile. You can control the type of profile information that is visible to others through your Account Settings. The information you choose to include in your profile should reflect how much you want other Artclever users to know about you. We recommend that you protect your anonymity and sensitive information, and we advise users to consider carefully the information they reveal in their profile pages. You can review and modify your profile information at any time.
As outlined in our terms of service, we do not intentionally collect or request personal data from individuals under 16 years old, unless they are school-based users in the U.S. If you are under 16 and not a U.S. school-based user, please do not attempt to register for our services or provide us with your personal data. If we learn that we have received personal data from a child under 16, who is not a school-based user, we will immediately remove that information. If you believe a child under 16 may have provided us with their personal data, please contact us at email@example.com.

We have no control over third party Cookies.

Third Party Advertising
We partner with third party companies such as Facebook and Google AdWords to advertise our Services on the internet. These companies may utilize technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and storage technologies to gather information from our Services and other online sources, and use this information to measure the success of their advertising and display targeted ads to you. We only collaborate with providers who have agreed to not display ads to people under the age of 18.
A cookie is utilized to signal to other websites that you visited a particular page and helps us tailor our advertising to better fit your needs by only showing you ads that are relevant to you. This cookie does not give access to your computer or mobile device in any way.
If you do not wish to receive ads from us, you have the option to opt-out in several ways such as:
Additionally, we may display interest-based ads to you when using Facebook via the Custom Audience Tool which lets us personalize our ads based on your use of the Services, but we do not share any personal information with Facebook. This tool converts your email address to a unique number that Facebook uses to match with unique numbers generated from other users' email addresses. Information on how to opt-out of this type of advertising can be found here.
The Services may contain links to external websites or services that are not controlled by us. We cannot be held responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these external websites or services, so it's important that you review their privacy policies before sharing any personal data. For example, teacher payments for classes are processed through third-party payment processors. As previously stated, we do not receive any credit card information you provide to these third-party processors, and such information is subject to their privacy policies.
In the case of a merger or acquisition by a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the user information, including Personal Data, as part of the transaction. If we were to face bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or if laws affecting creditors' rights were applied, we may not be able to control the treatment, transfer, or use of your Personal Data.
