Adonit Creative Inc.

Privacy Policy

(Revised February 2015)

Adonit Creative Inc. (“Adonit,” “our,” “us,” or "we") respects your privacy. We created this Privacy Policy to let you know what information we collect and how we use it, as well as our information sharing and protection practices.

This Privacy Policy applies to:

  • The website www.adonit.net (the “Website”);
  • The Forge mobile application (the “App”);
  • Information collected by Adonit from third party applications (“Non-Adonit Apps”) that integrate our Adonit software development kit (“SDK”); and
  • Any email, text and other electronic communications you send to Adonit through the Website or the App.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to:

  • Information we collect offline or by any other means (such as through other websites, products or services we may offer);
  • Information collected by any third parties, including through Non-Adonit Apps, which may have their own privacy policies.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and save it. If you do not agree with it, you should not access the Website or download the App or Non-Adonit Apps that interface with our SDK. By using the Website, the App or Non-Adonit Apps, you consent to the practices prescribed in this Privacy Policy.

What information does Adonit collect?

  • Personal Information. When we refer to "Personal Information" in this Privacy Policy, we mean any information by which you may be personally identified or contacted, whether online or offline. When you purchase products on the Website or otherwise fill out any forms located on the Website, we may collect certain Personal Information from you, such as your first and last name, email address, phone number, mailing address or other contact information and credit card or other payment information. When you download the App, we collect your email address. It is always your choice whether or not to provide Personal Information. If you choose not to provide requested Personal Information, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or use certain features of the Website.
  • Technical Information. We may also collect and use technical data and related information, such as information about your device, system and application software, peripherals and other data related to your interactions with the Website, the App and our SDK (“Technical Information”). We may automatically collect Technical Information through cookies and log files. The information we collect from these technologies includes your stylus serial number, stylus model and version, stylus user settings, application used, iPad model, iOS version, Adonit SDK version, stylus connection and disconnection times, usage data, crash analytics, IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit. Adonit does not consider this information to be Personal Information, but note that the IP address and stylus serial number may potentially be used in a personally identifying manner.

Information You Voluntarily Disclose

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose Information through any public-facing features of the Website, the App or Non-Adonit Apps that interface with our SDK (for example, via message boards), that information can be collected and used by others. You submit this information at your own risk. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information you choose to submit in connection with these public features.

How does Adonit use Information?

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or in our Terms of Use or similar document, Personal Information and Technical Information (collectively, “Information”) that you provide or that we collect will be kept confidential and used to support your relationship with Adonit.

We may use your Information, including your Personal Information, as follows:

  • To improve, market or promote Adonit’s products (including our stylus products) and services.
  • To increase our understanding of how users prefer to use our stylus products
  • To improve the SDK and application integration of the SDK
  • To enhance the user experience, display personalized content or enable you to participate in features of the Website or the App.

Security of Your Information

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to protect the Information. These safeguards include only storing Technical Information on our servers. Despite the actions and precautions we take, no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the Information and you acknowledge and agree that you transmit it to us at your own risk.

Third-Party Websites, Services and Technologies

We may provide links to Non-Adonit Apps and third party websites on the Website or in other communications to you. These links may appear as a specific domain name or URL or may be activated by clicking on an advertisement or other icon or graphic. Please be aware that other websites and services, including Non-Adonit Apps that integrate with our SDK, may collect personally identifiable information about you. We cannot control and are not responsible for the information collection practices of any Non-Adonit Apps or other third party websites or services. We encourage you to carefully review their terms of use, privacy policies, and any other legal notifications before using or providing information through such Non-Adonit Apps, websites, or services.

Further, the Website or the App may employ third party technologies that require you to accept such third party’s terms. This Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of those third-party technologies.

Information collected from you may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Adonit or its affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or contractors maintain facilities. If you are accessing the Website from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your data to the United States and processing globally. By providing your Information, you consent to any transfer and processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Also they may be used to track your return visits to the Website. Depending on your browser, you may be able to remove and reject cookies from our Website by changing your browser settings. The default setting of many browsers is set to accept cookies until you change your settings. Please note that if you disable or refuse cookies, certain features of the Website may become inaccessible or may not function properly.

Information Choices and Changes

This is our entire Privacy Policy and it replaces any earlier version. We may change this Privacy Policy by posting a new version on the Website or distributing a new version via the App, and it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically. If we make material changes to our practices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information, we will notify you via e-mail to the email address you provide to us and/or through a notice in the App or on the Website home page.

When we do change the Privacy Policy, we will also revise the “revised” date. Your continued use of the Website, the App or the SDK after such date constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
