Last Updated: January 2019

The following privacy policy applies to the Services provided exclusively by Aces Everything Inc. (“Aces”). Protecting user privacy is very important to us. When you use the Services, you also consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy, so please read it carefully.

By using our Services (as defined in the Terms of Service) you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to post content, including but not limited to photos, videos, links, GIFs, captions, text, media, emojis, recipients, Acemojis, drawings, stickers, Aces, flips, comments, and other materials (“User Content“) to the Aces mobile application (the “App”) and to share User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

Our Privacy Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Services (“Users”).

1. Collection of Personal Information

Personal information provided to Aces by its Users (“Personal Information”) upon registration will remain confidential and will not be disclosed to any outside organization without prior consent of the user unless required by law or if the terms and conditions stated on this page are violated. Aces does not sell or trade your Personal Information to outside parties. We may disclose your Personal Information to vendors, partners, and affiliates that help us operate the App and Site, conduct our business or provide the Services to you.

Personal Information includes the following information:

  • Your first name, last name, username, phone number, birthdate, profile photo, and e-mail address when you register for an Aces account.
  • Any information that you provide for your user profile.
  • User Content that you post to the Service.
  • Communications between you and Aces, such as Service-related email for account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, etc.
  • Information you provide us to add, connect to, or communicate with other users including but not limited to your contact list, address book, photo gallery, video gallery, camera, search history, User Content selections, third-party social media sites, or through a search on Aces.

Metadata, which is technical data that is associated with User Content, may constitute Personal Information. Metadata can describe how, when, and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including artwork, Acemojis, emojis, hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), text, caption, drawing, illustration, sticker, comments, and/or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using other APIs then your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if your photo is made public by you in accordance with your privacy settings.

2. Use of Personal Information

In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use Personal Information to:

  • help you efficiently access your information after you sign in
  • remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service
  • provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include but is not limited to online ads or other forms of marketing
  • provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Service
  • develop and test new products and features
  • monitor metrics including but not limited to total number of users, traffic, engagement with the Services, demographic, and psychographic patterns
  • diagnose or fix technology problems
  • automatically update the Aces application on your device
  • bill your credit card or other specified form of payment, in accordance with the Terms of Service

We may combine your Personal Information with non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the Services and to analyze and understand how our Site and Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions, for advertising or advertising targeting purposes.

We may also use your contact information to inform you about new products, events or special promotions. If you wish not to receive such communications or you wish to delete your account, you may send an e-mail to [email protected]. You may also remove yourself from the mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that is present in all promotional emails that we send to our customers.

3. Cookies

Cookies are small files that a website or one of its service providers transfers to your device’s storage device via your web browser (if your browser is configured to permit this) that enable its systems to recognize your browser and store certain information. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your device, and can only be read by a web server of the website that issued the cookie to you.

We also use cookies to maintain internal logs of usage of the Services. Logs include information such as IP address, browser type and version, and computer operating system. We use logs mainly for internal systems administration and diagnostic purposes, and to detect improper use of the site. Logs may also be used to generate aggregate, non-Personal Information for advertisers or other third parties.] You can instruct your web browser to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting certain or all cookies. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Services.

4. Your Choices About Your Information and User Content

The security of our User data is very important to us. We transfer your Personal Information securely, using industry-compliant encryption technology. When you enter sensitive information on our web or app forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using transport layer security (TLS).

When you choose to share your User Content:

Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service, including but not limited to User Content, becomes available to the recipients you directly select and/or the general public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings that you set. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared and/or repurposed by others.

Subject to your privacy settings, any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users. Certain public User Content, such as Aces and flips, is always public. Any User Content you create, share, and/or exchange may be accessed by Aces during its content monitoring in order to uphold Community Guidelines and platform safety.

If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service. Further, anonymous information relating to your past usage of the Services may remain in our archived records after your account has been deleted.
