Privacy Policy

Aurasync Studios, Inc. (“Aurasync” or “we” or “us”) owns, operates and provides downloadable web-enabled applications, each of which may be branded as Chortopia, Advenchores or another brand owned or licensed by Aurasync (each, an “Application”, and collectively, the “Applications”).   

 

Please read THIS PRIVACY POLICY (THE “PRIVACY POLICY”) carefully before DOWNLOADING, using, or accessing an APPLICATION, or using or accessing our website (http://www.chortopia.com) OR By DOWNLOADING, USING, or accessing an APPLICATION, or using or accessing our website, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure and other handling of information as described in THIS PRIVACY POLICY and you accept and agree to the terms of use as it relates to the applications: http://www.aurasync.com/#!terms-of-use/k37b6.  IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU MAY NOT DOWNLOAD, USE, or access an APPLICATION, or use or access our website.

 

1. Children’s Personally Identifiable Information

 

We do not target children under the age of majority to register an account on an Application.  If your account is not registered on an Application, or if a username has not been created for you under a registered account, we will not make certain features and functionality of the Application available to you.
 

If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of majority, you may register an account on an Application and create usernames for your children under that registered account.  With those usernames, your children may download and use the Application subject to the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy, but we will not enable those usernames to create additional usernames. 

 

If you are a parent or a guardian who has discovered that your child under the age of majority has submitted his or her personally identifiable information to us without your permission or consent, we will make reasonable efforts to remove the information from our database, at your written request. To request the removal of your child’s information, please contact us as described in the “How to Contact Us” section below and include in your message your child’s name and the email address that your child submitted.

 

2. Information Residing on Devices

 

If you enter the following information into an Application, such information will reside on the device where you run the Application.  Aurasync will not knowingly collect the following information from you through an Application:

  • The names and images of users set up on your registered account (if any), including the names and images of users assigned to various chores.  These names and images do not need to be personally identifiable.

  • Awards, points, chore names & pictures, chore progress & completion dates, and other similar information about the chores or game play.

 

If you register an account on an Application, we may make available to you and the other users under your registered account links to social media services.  If you or the other users also use social media services, you and those other users may be able to share with a social media service information that users entered into the Application and that reside on the device.    

 

Aurasync has no control over social media services and is not responsible for any actions that they may take. Users may arrive at such social media services, or share information residing on the device through a social media service, by selecting a link or graphic in the Applications or simply by selecting a link or graphic on another website or application. You should be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of social media services.  If a user provides any information to social media services, different rules regarding the collection and use of information may apply. Before registering an account with Aurasync, creating usernames under that registered account, or using social media services, you may wish to review social media service privacy policies to understand how they treat privacy, security, data collection, disclosure, distribution, and use.

To make such a request, contact us as described in the  “How to Contact Us” section below.

 

Please note that some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference to websites, web-enabled downloadable applications, and other online services that they “do not track” your online activities. At this time, we do not modify what information we collect or how we use that information based upon whether such a signal is broadcast or received.

Your request does not ensure the complete or comprehensive removal of the content you posted and we then collected from you through the Applications. We are not required to remove content if you fail to follow our instructions related to such removal or if:

 

  • we are required by law to maintain the content;

  • a third party stored, posted, republished, or reposted the content; or

  • we anonymize the content so that you cannot be individually identified by it.

 

10. Governing Law; Jurisdiction
