1. Information We Collect and Receive
2. How We Use Your Information
2.1 Personal Data
2.2 Non-Personal Data
Non-Personal Data is used to manage and improve the StoryBots Services, track usage. and may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users. If Personal Data is anonymized, aggregated, or modified so that it can no longer reasonably identify a specific user, it is considered Non-Personal Data and JibJab may use such information for any business purpose.
3. How We Share Your Information
3.1 Share Function
We will share Personal Data, such as your name or User Materials, with third parties when you utilize the “invite” functionalities of the StoryBots Services, such as Teachers inviting colleagues or parents to use the StoryBots Services.
3.2 Other Disclosures
Flash cookies (also known as “local shared objects” or “LSOs”) cannot be rejected, disabled, turned off, opted out, or deleted in the same way as regular cookies such as HTML cookies. Flash cookies may remain on your computer even after you have rejected, disabled, opted out, or deleted regular cookies. For information on how to manage and remove Flash cookies, please visit:
4.2 Web Beacons
In addition, JibJab may use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “web bugs,” “clear GIFs,” etc. (collectively “Web Beacons”) to collect information about your usage of the StoryBots Services. These are small electronic images embedded in web content (including online ads) and email messages and are ordinarily not visible to users. Like cookies, Web Beacons enable us to track pages and content (including ads) accessed and viewed by users on the StoryBots Services. Also, when we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to our users, Web Beacons may be embedded in such emails to allow us to monitor readership levels so that we can identify aggregate trends and individual usage to provide our users with more relevant content or offers. Web beacons in emails may recognize specific activities, such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked on, etc. Web Beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. However, Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive our Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.
4.3 Third-Party Analytics
JibJab may use third-party analytics services (such as Google Analytics, Optimizely, and MixPanel) to collect Non-Personal Data, including but not limited to session information, key events, device information, location, language, timestamp, platform, and time zone. We use these services to collect and compare information about the user base and user visits, as well as to improve the StoryBots Services.
5. Data Retention
JibJab may retain your Personal Data and Non-Personal Data as long as you continue to use and are registered through the StoryBots Services. You may request that we delete your Personal Data and close your account at any time by emailing us at email@example.com. However, we may retain your Personal Data for an additional period of time, as permitted or required under applicable law, to conduct audits, prevent fraud and abuse, improve the StoryBots Services, comply with legal obligations, maintain security, enforce our Terms of Service, or for any other legitimate and lawful business purpose. In addition, after your account has been closed we will continue to retain your Non-Personal Data and any Personal Data that has been anonymized, aggregated, or modified so that it can no longer reasonably be used to identify you.
6. Invitations and Other Communications to Non-users
Teachers can send email invitations to parents or colleagues to join the StoryBots Services. JibJab may store the email addresses that you provide so that JibJab can send notifications authorized by you and related reminders to such email addresses. JibJab does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides those initiated by you and invitation reminders initiated by JibJab. Recipients of emails from JibJab may contact us to request the removal of their information from our database by clicking on the opt-out link at the bottom of our emails.
You may prevent JibJab messages from being sent to any email address you control by sending an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the email must come from the account you wish to block.
7. Service Providers
We rely on certain third-party services for the operation of the StoryBots Services, such as credit card payment processing, order processing, data storage and security, etc. The security of your personal information is important to us. Please keep in mind that, to the extent a third-party service provider needs to access your information in order to perform services for us, we share your information with that provider. However, we do require that any third-party service providers limit their use of your information solely to providing services to us and that they maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your information and not make unauthorized use or disclosure of the information.
As an example, we use Recurly, Inc. (“Recurly”) in certain instances to provide billing, membership management, and other payment related services. When you check out through any of the StoryBots Services that utilize Recurly, you will be asked to enter your First Name, Last Name, Credit Card Information, Billing Address, and Shipping Address as necessary to complete your transaction. JibJab does not store any payment information in our database. Rather, we rely on Recurly, a PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant service merchant provider, to store all payment related data. For recurring payments, Recurly may utilize an "account updater" feature which updates your payment records automatically when there is a change to your chosen payment method on file, such as a change in address or a new account number on your credit card. Recurly is prohibited from using your Personal Data for any other purpose other than providing the above-described contracted services.

9. Correcting, Updating, or Removing Information
You may access, modify, or remove any of your personal information (except for the email address linked to a user account) at any time by logging into your account and accessing the “Account” section. To receive notifications on updates or changes to the StoryBots Services, we ask that you keep your account updated with most relevant personal information (i.e. your current email address).
10. Email Choice/Opt-out
You may choose to no longer receive marketing emails (i.e. emails that contain ads, promotional offers, etc.). All marketing, notification emails and StoryBots newsletters include instructions for opting-out of those communications in the future.
JibJab aims to provide you with a secure customer experience. JibJab user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. JibJab takes precautions to ensure that user account information is kept private. We use commercially reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. However, we do not guarantee that these efforts will completely protect user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. We will endeavor to notify users in the event that the security of their personal information is breached or compromised. By submitting personal information through any of the StoryBots Services, you expressly consent to receiving our notification regarding any breach or compromise, or suspected breach or compromise, of the security of your personal information, by email or postal mail, as we deem appropriate and as required by law. For any additional information about the security measures we use, please contact us at email@example.com.
We urge you to keep your username, password, and other account access information in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to sign off your account when you have finished using the StoryBots Services. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or an internet cafe.
