Storytop Privacy Policy

Here at Storytop, we want to provide a safe and fun web environment for all of our visitors. Consequently, we do not collect personal information from our visitors. Stories that are created by our members are not viewable in a public forum. They can be viewed by other users who have received a link to a story from the story creator.

We strive to provide a secure web site and implement the best available security practices. We have implemented appropriate physical, electronic and managerial controls to help prevent unauthorized access and maintain data security.

As we continue to provide our visitors with new and different types of content, we may modify our practices from time to time. We will, however, treat all data entered by our users in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at the time the data was entered.

What Information do we collect?

Storytop does not collect personally identifiable information about our visitors. Creation of a personal account is not required to save or share stories. We instead use cookies to uniquely identify each user. There may be some scenarios where creation of an account is desirable. If, for example, multiple people are creating stories on the same computer, creating individual accounts will assure that each user can only see their own stories. Also, if the user wants to edit their stories from multiple machines, it will be necessary to create an account. Creating an account on Storytop.com requires only that the user enter a unique user name, password and answer one of a set of predefined security questions. The answer to the security question is only used to verify the identity of the user if they have forgotten their password. Visitors are asked on the registration form to avoid using their full name as a user name.

When visitors come to our site, we automatically capture some information from their browser client such as the type of computer being used and language preference. This information is used to enhance the security of the site and provide a customized experience for our visitors.

How do we use the information?

The information we collect, such as user name and password, is used only to verify the identity of the visitor. We will not give, sell or otherwise transfer this information to third parties with the exception of court orders or law enforcement requests.

Our advertisers may use third parties to present the ads that appear on our site. These third party servers may use cookies and other similar technologies. The use of these technologies is subject to their own privacy policies and are not covered by our privacy policy.

Do we use cookies?

The Storytop web site uses cookies (small pieces of information that are stored on your computer) for user authentication only. The cookies used to uniquely identify users consist of a date/time stamp when they first used the application and a randomly generated string of characters. We do not collect personally identifiable information through the use of cookies or track users on other sites.
