Novelize constitutes the Novelize Writing App and its associated website. It is Novelize’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website and app.
Like most website operators, Novelize collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Novelize's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Novelize's visitors use its website. From time to time, Novelize may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Novelize also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users. Novelize only discloses logged-in users' IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to Novelize’s websites choose to interact with Novelize in ways that require Novelize to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Novelize gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Novelize, such as purchasing a subscription, are asked for payment information. In each case, Novelize collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Novelize. Novelize does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.
Novelize may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Novelize may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Novelize does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Novelize discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Novelize’s behalf or to provide services available at Novelize’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Novelize’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Novelize will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Novelize discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Novelize believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Novelize, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Novelize and have supplied your email address, Novelize may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Novelize and our service. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Novelize takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Novelize, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Novelize goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Novelize may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
