Stoic Privacy Policy

This site is administered on behalf of Stoic LLC (“Stoic”) by Versus Evil LLC, (its “Authorized Distributor”). Stoic and its Authorized Distributor know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we are committed to protecting the privacy and accuracy of your personally identifiable information, subject to state and federal law. This notice describes the privacy policy for our websites http://www.stoicstudio.com and http://www.createthebanner.com (the “Site”) including all online services and functions.

Registration

You must register on this Site in order to use certain Site’s online services and functions, including the http://www.createthebaner.com promotions. If you just want to browse the Site, registration is optional.

During registration, you will be required to provide contact information, consisting of an email address, username, password, and in some instances, your date of birth.

You can select any username you want, except that your username cannot be an impersonation, the same or confusingly similar to a famous trademark, or be a term that is offensive in any way. You may, but are not obligated to, use your own name. If you do use your own name, you consent to it being passed to others by use of the functions of the Site. Stoic reserves the right to reject or remove any username that does not meet applicable standards.

Information We Collect and Use

  • Personally Identifiable Information: Categories of personally identifiable information that Stoic collects on the Site, at least temporarily, may include your Internet location (Internet domain and IP address), type of browser and operating system you use to access the Site, date and time the Site was visited, pages visited on the Site, search terms used on our search engines, along with information you use to fill out forms such as your date of birth name, email address, username and password. This personally identifiable information is used to respond to user inquiries.
  • Cookies: A cookie is small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Stoic uses both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies” on the Site.

Stoic uses session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. If you check “remember me on this computer” when logging on the Site, Stoic also sets a persistent cookie to store the username or password that you have entered, so that you do not have to enter it more than once. The persistent cookie also enables us to track and target the interests of Site users and to enhance your overall Site experience. The persistent cookie is removed when you uncheck the “remember my email address” check box.

Your web browser allows you to control and limit cookies on your computer. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some areas or functions of the Site may be limited.

Additionally, some of Stoic’s business partners and affiliates may use cookies on the Site. Stoic has no access to or control over these cookies. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Stoic only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
