Our Privacy Commitment
Purple Pwny Studios L.L.C. (the "Company," "Purple Pwny", "we," "us" or "our") is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of users of Purple Pwny's website (located at http://purplepwny.com), the "Yo to the Yo" website (located at http://yototheyo.pizza), the LDJamerator website (located at http://ldjamerator.com) and other products and websites related to the Purple Pwny brand that may be added from time to time (the "Sites"). As such, we have established and implemented this Privacy Statement to inform visitors to the Sites how we use and protect the information we collect through the Sites. By visiting or browsing the Sites, you consent to Purple Pwny's collection, use, storage, deletion, and disclosure of personal information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Statement. This Privacy Statement is effective as of the date set forth above and covers our collection, use, and disclosure of information we collect through the Sites.
This Privacy Statement answers the following questions:
- What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
- Will we share your personal information with third parties?
- What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?
- What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?
What Information Do We Collect About You and How Do We Use It?
Types of Information We Collect
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. Our Sites may be browsed anonymously. If you do not browse anonymously, the Sites may collect personal information from you including your email address, postal address, name, gender, location, social media information, and cookies.
We may collect personal information when you fill in a "contact us" request to receive customer or technical support; subscribe to our newsletter; participate in Site feedback, questionnaires, surveys, or contests; or participate in forums discussions.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We may use your personally identifiable information for all legal purposes, including, for example:
- Newsletters. Purple Pwny may use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send you commercial or marketing messages including, without limitation, newsletters and email communications about our products or services. We will also use your email address to contact you regarding any customer or technical support issues.
- Promotional Giveaways. Purple Pwny may use your email address or other personally identifiable information should you participate in promotional giveaways including, without limitation, cash prizes or merchandise giveaways. We will also use your email address to contact you regarding the rules and results of such promotional giveaways.
- Advertising. Purple Pwny may use your personally identifiable information in conjunction with third-party advertising providers in order to display advertisements on the Sites. See below for more information on this advertising and how to opt out of data collection.
De-Personalizing Your Information
We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect on the Sites (the "Analytical Data"). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties.
Cookies and other Technical Information
"Cookies" are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor's browser and are stored on the visitor's hard drive. Like many websites, we employ cookies in certain areas of the Sites to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient and to enhance your experience with the Sites. Cookies are not spyware or adware, and can't deliver viruses or run programs on your computer. A user may configure his or her web browsers to accept or reject or delete the cookies, or notify the user when a cookie is being set.
We may collect other technical information from users of the Sites, including their IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and geolocational information.
We employ third party tracking utility software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. In short, clear gifs enable two websites to share information with one another. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' personally identifiable information.
A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. Purple Pwny uses third party ad servers to support tracking pixels and cookies.
"Do Not Track"
When you visit the Sites, we may also collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Many web browsers and sites allow users to make use of "Do Not Track" functionality. Please see your web browser's documentation for more information on this functionality, or visit the links below in the section entitled "How to Opt Out of Data Collection" to opt out of data collection and tracking from various third-party sites that may be in use.
Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other Do Not Track mechanisms, we do not specifically respond to web browser-based Do Not Track signals at this time.
The Sites may use one or more remarketing services, including Google AdWords retargeting, to advertise on third party websites (including but not limited to Google and Facebook) to previous visitors to the Sites. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven't completed a task on the Sites, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on a search engine results page or a site in a particular advertising network.

Purple Pwny takes children's privacy seriously and encourages parents to play an active role in their children's online experience at all times. We urge parents to instruct their children never to give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without parental permission, when online.

- Asset transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of Purple Pwny's assets or a line of business, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the Sites, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, Purple Pwny will use reasonable means to notify you through a prominent notice on the Sites.

Additionally, we may partner with newsletter service providers such as Mailchimp or Aweber to create and send regular newsletters to users who have signed up. While providing services for us, these companies may access your personal information. To the extent applicable, we require these entities to comply with this Privacy Statement and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
