Information We Collect & How We Use It
Thanks for using Airstory! We built Airstory to remove the barriers associated with the content creation process. That means you can input, upload, or store in Airstory any text, images, and other data that you choose (known as, “Your Stuff”). You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in Your Stuff. In short, what belongs to you stays yours. We also collect, receive and securely store the following types of information:
When you create an account, we collect the following information that can be used to identify you:
- Personal information such as your name, email address and, if you are using a paid account, credit card billing information (“personally identifiable information” or “PII”).
- Optional information such as a photograph.
Your PII is used to provide you with Airstory Services such as making sure you find what you’re looking for when you search your account. Additionally, Airstory’s Customer Support team may need to access your information, such as your account email address, and/or the device and operating system you are using to access Airstory and/or to troubleshoot any concerns you may have when using Airstory Services. We may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing.
If you contact Airstory’s Customer Support team for help with specific pieces of Your Stuff in your account (for example, if you can’t find a project you believe should be in your account), we may ask for your permission to look at Your Stuff. The permission to access Your Stuff terminates when the issue is resolved.
In accordance with your communication preferences, we’ll occasionally contact you to announce new products and features we build for you, share tips for using Airstory to get more done, promote special offers, and provide information about how Airstory works with products and services from our business partners.
