This Privacy Policy sets forth how Narrative 4, Inc. and its related companies and affiliates (collectively, “N4,” “we,” or “us”) will collect, use and share information in connection with our website ( and any other N4 products, services and websites that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Service”).

By accessing or using the Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service and consent to our collection, use and sharing of your information as described below. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected online through the Service, and does not apply to information that may be collected by us or our affiliates in an offline context, such as, at in-person events.

  1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT.  We collect “Personal Information” in several ways when you visit or use the Service. Personal Information is generally defined as information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, such as your name, e-mail address, home address and telephone number. Additionally, we may also collect demographic information, such as your age, gender, country and zip code of residence, geo-locational information and preferences. This demographic information may be directly associated with your Personal Information, in which case it will be treated as Personal Information. On the other hand, aggregate information about the characteristics and activities of users of the Service that is not connected to personal information (or from which Personal Information has been removed) will not be treated as Personal Information.
  • Information You Provide to Us Directly.  When you interact with the Service, we may collect, store, and use information that you voluntarily provide to us. For example, you may be required to provide certain Personal Information when you sign up for our newsletter, fill out forms on the website or make a donation. You may also submit Personal Information when you send us feedback or submit User Generated Content (as defined in our Terms of Service).
  • Information Received from a Third Party.  When you use or interact with the Service through a social network (e.g., Google or Facebook) or other third-party platform, app, or service (“Third Party Service”), you are authorizing N4 to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, any and all information that you agreed the Third-Party Service could provide to N4 based on your privacy settings with the Third-Party Service. This information may include Personal Information, such as, your name, user ID, profile picture, and user IDs of your friends. We may also obtain Personal Information about you from other sources, such as, our vendors, partners, and network advertising companies, and combine that information with information we have collected from or about you.
  • Log Data and Mobile Devices. When you use the Service, our servers record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to the Service, pages of the websites involved in the Service that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for, access times and dates, and other information. If you access the Service from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device, such as your device type, geo-location, and operating system. Log Data is tied to your Personal Information in certain circumstances, such as if you have linked a Third-Party Service account to your N4 account.
  • Cookies and Local Storage. We may also use cookies and other tracking technologies (including but not limited to browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe flash technology), which are comprised of small bits of data that often include an anonymous unique identifier. Websites send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that site. These technologies may be used to collect and store information about your usage of Service, such as pages you have visited, search queries you have run, and advertisements you have seen. Information contained in a cookie may also be linked to your Personal Information for purposes such as improving the quality of the Service, tailoring recommendations and ads to your interests, and making the Service easier to use. You can disable cookies at any time, although, if you do so, you may not be able to access or use the Service or certain of its features.
