Curly Robot, LLC

Privacy Policy


This Master Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the collection, use, and disclosure of “personal information” by Curly Robot, LLC (“Curly Robot”), a California Limited Liability Company. Unless otherwise noted on a particular site or service, this Privacy Policy applies to your use of all websites that Curly Robot operates, including, all subdomains of,, (collectively, the “Websites” or “Services”), as well as the products, information, and services provided through the Websites. Furthermore, this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of the websites operated by affiliates of Curly Robot.

In addition, supplemental Privacy Policy terms (“Supplemental Privacy Policy Terms”) may apply to a particular Service. All such Supplemental Privacy Policy Terms will be accessible for you to read either within, or through your use of, that particular Service.

This Privacy Policy also explains our commitment to you with respect to our use and disclosure of non personal browsing and site usage data that Curly Robot collects as the provider of the Services. That commitment is contained in a “Data Usage Policy,” below.

As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number, or email address.

By accessing or using any of the Services, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Our Principles

Curly Robot, LLC is committed to handling responsibly the information and data we collect about you through our Services, whether personal information or non personal browsing and site usage data. We have designed our Privacy Policy and our Data Usage Policy consistent with the following principles (the “Principles”):

  1. Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
  2. Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
  3. Information you provide through our Services, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Services, should not be used for marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
  4. If Curly Robot is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Curly Robot will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or Curly Robot is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Personal Information Curly Robot Collects

We may collect personal information through our Services, including without limitation:

Curly Robot Does with Personal Information

Emails and Newsletters. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive updates from Curly Robot in order to respond to your request – for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about Curly Robot news and campaigns.

Payments. When you pay for merchandise, software, service or support, your personal information will be handled depending on which option you choose.

  1. If you pay Curly Robot using a credit card on our websites the transaction is processed through a third party service provider (Stripe, Inc), your payment information (including credit card number, expiration date, CCV2 code, and billing zip code) is handled and stored by that service in accordance with their respective privacy policies and terms of use.
  2. If you pay Curly Robot through a variety of on-line payment services including Amazon Payments, Google Checkout, Paypal among others, your personal information is sent to, handled by and stored by those websites in accordance with their respective privacy policies and terms of use.

You should read and understand the privacy policy and terms of use of any services and websites you use to pay Curly Robot.

Register Users of Our Services

When you register to obtain a user account on any of the Services (any such person, a “Registered User”), including but not limited to linking to a Google, Facebook, Twitter or other (single sign-on services), you may be asked to provide personal information to create your account and establish a password and profile. We encourage you to use an alias or nickname if you are not comfortable providing your legal name. The name or nickname you provide in connection with your account may be used to attribute you in connection with any content you submit to any Service. We also use that personal information to establish and maintain your account, to provide you with the features we provide Registered Users, and to email you regarding changes to this policy or other applicable policies. If you sign up to receive updates from Curly Robot when you create your account, we will use your personal information to send you communications about Curly Robot news and campaigns.

Any other personal information that we may collect which is not described specifically in this Privacy Policy will only be collected and used in accordance with the Principles.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

We use Cookies, Local Storage, Application Data Caches and other similar technologies for three purposes that may be linked to you:

  1. To determine if you may access specific content, resources or features.
  2. To store your preferences for interacting with a service.
  3. To store draft edits prior to transmitting it to the service (this is done so that you do not lose your work if you close your browser and come back later).

We do not use these technologies to build a profile about you.

Disclosures of Personal Information

In general, it is not Curly Robot’s practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share your personal information in two instances:

First, Curly Robot may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Services.

Second, we may disclose your personal information to third parties in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Master Terms of Use and Privacy Policy; (c) comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.

If Curly Robot is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Curly Robot will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or Curly Robot is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services

Curly Robot has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Curly Robot stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.

Single Sign-on Services (including OpenID, Oauth, Google Sign-In, Facebook Sign-In, and Twitter Sign-In) have security risks in addition to those described above. Among other things, they are vulnerable to DNS attacks, social engineering attacks, and may increase the risk of phishing.

Data Usage Policy: Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information

Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Services, including when you log into a website using registered user account.

Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect

When you use the Services, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you use your registered users account to log into a website, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the websites you visit and when you visit them.

No Linking

We do not intentionally link browsing information or information from server logs to the personal information you submit to us. We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Services are being used, to improve our Services, and for systems administration purposes. Curly Robot may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non personal browsing information through operation of our Services for those same purposes.

No Selling or Sharing

Except in the unique situations identified in this Privacy Policy, Curly Robot does not sell or otherwise voluntarily provide the non personal browsing information we collect about you or your website usage to third parties.

Reorganization or Spin-Offs

Curly Robot may transfer some or all of your personal and/or non personal browsing information to a third party as a result of a reorganization, spin-off, or similar transaction. Upon such transfer, the acquirer’s privacy policy will apply. In such event, Curly Robot will use reasonable efforts to notify you and to ensure that at the time of the transaction the acquirer’s privacy policy complies with the Principles.


The Services are not directed at children under the age of 13. Consistent with the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without requiring parental consent. Our Master Terms of Use specifically prohibit anyone using our Services from submitting any personally identifiable information about persons under 13 years of age. Any person who provides their personal information to CC through the Services represents that they are 13 years of age or older.

Third-Party Sites

The Services may include links to other websites. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other websites.

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the Effective Date below. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the Services constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
