What information do we collect?
- We collect information when you visit the Site or use our Products. We are able to track visitors to our Site and users of our Products. We collect information such as the browser type they are using, where they navigate and/or click, the time of their visit, their IP address, how they came to the Site (e.g. from a search engine, including what terms they may have used in their search), their approximate location in the world, certain anonymized behavior data, the kind of content a visitor imports (e.g. videos versus photos), how often they launch our apps, how long our apps are launched for, and so on. Much of this data is collected anonymously. We use this type of information for things like improving the flow of the Site, fixing any mistakes on the Site and to improve the experience of using our Products.
- When you email us or otherwise communicate with us directly (for example with any questions, ideas, or feedback sent to [email protected] or via other communications directly) we will hold on to your email address so we can respond to you. We may also retain a log of all communications with you indefinitely in order to have a history of our past communications and to better serve you, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law.

Who we share your information with
We do not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. You can write us at [email protected] if you do not want us to share your information with any third parties. Otherwise, subject to any exceptions contained herein, we may share your information with reputable third parties with complementary products or services or who are vendors providing services to us. Other situations in which we may share your information include:
- Situations in which you give us permission to share your information
- Situations in which we share information with other companies under the same control as Looking Glass Factory, for example subsidiaries or joint ventures
We reserve the right to use and to disclose any information that is anonymized for any purpose. We may share our mailing list with reputable third parties who sell products or services complementary to our own. To opt out, please send an email to [email protected]. We do share information with our vendors, as described in this policy, for the purposes described in this policy. These vendors are not authorized to use or disclose the information, other than to perform their services for us. For example, as we described above, we share information with MailChimp so that they can operate our mailing list, but they are not authorized to email you directly or share your information with others. The same applies to vendors who operate services for us such as: our forums, our referral programs, our job application page, shipping, market research, and payment processing.
We share the information we collect with vendors, service providers, researchers and other partners, who work at our direction to support the Site and Products (such as hosting our Site, fulfilling orders, facilitating payments, analyzing the way people use our Site and Products, processing credit card payments, providing customer service, or sending electronic communications for us).
In the event that the ownership of Looking Glass Factory (or any portion of our assets) changes as a result of a merger, acquisition, or in the event of a bankruptcy, information from or about you or your Product may be transferred to another company.
While no system for protecting information is perfectly secure, Looking Glass Factory has adopted commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative procedures to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect on our Site and Products. In the event we become aware of a data breach where users’ personally identifiable information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties, we will notify any affected individuals within 72 hours of becoming aware of a breach if we think there is a reasonable risk of harm to those users or if otherwise required to do so by law. If you have any questions about our policy or security, you can write us at [email protected].
