Privacy Policy

uMake is an innovative way to create and transform 3D sketches of things like cities, drones, bikes, characters and cars to help bring concepts towards reality. You can share your designs with the community to get and give feedback and evolve your designs in a fun environment.

When you use our website or app (which we will refer to together as the “Services”)—and any others we in the uMake corporate family create, whether in the uMake app or in another place – we will collect some information from you. We understand that this can affect your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains what is the information we collect, how we use it, with whom we share it , and the choices you have to control, access, and update your information. If you have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, please contact us [email protected]

By downloading our Services you are accepting the terms described in this Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy, please delete the app and all Services from your device and stop using the Services. If you continue to use the Services you express that you accept this policy.

1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use the Services we collect information in three ways:

(1) information you provide to us,

(2) information we collect when you use our services (for example using “cookies” and other technologies); and

(3) information we receive from third parties (for example third-party analytics or advertising providers).
Below we explain each of these ways in more detail:

Information you provide to us:

When you use our Services, we collect information that you choose to share with us. Here are some examples:

Use of our Website without an Account: You do not need to create an account just to browse our website or download the app. When you use the website, even without creating an account, we still collect from you some of the information described in the “Information we collect when you use the services” section.

User account, social media log-in: To use our Services you need to set up a user account, so we need to collect some information about you such as: a username you would like to go by, a password and an email address. To make it easier for others to find you, you can choose to provide some additional information that will be publicly visible on our Services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other identifying information. If you use the option to log in with social media we will receive the information included in your public profile, such as your social media handle, you gender, age range, country, and language. Other services, such as commerce products, may also require you to provide us with a debit or credit card number and its associated account information.

Information you share through the services:  When you send information through the Services, such as when you share your designs with the community, comment on a blog or offer a testimonial, we receive this information. Please keep in mind that blogs and testimonials are located in the public areas of our services and everyone can see them. If you provide a testimonial, you name will be posted along with the testimonial. Also, when you share a design or other content, the users you send this to or that see it can always, download the content, copy it, and share it, within or outside the app. Please don’t send messages or share content that you would not want others to save or share. If you create content in your own account and do not post or share it, we will not access such content without your permission.

Communications with us, tech support: If you contact our technical support for assistance with the Services, or when you send us messages, or suggestions or communicate with us in any other way, we will collect the information you provide. If you take advantage of our live chat feature to receive technical support or ask general questions regarding use of our platform we retain copies of the live chats. If our live chat is offline we will collect your name and email address so that we may reply to your request through our support desk.

Payment information: To make payments to us, you will need to provide billing information, such as a name, address, email address and payment card information. The processing of the payment information is done by a third party (Apple). We do not have access to your payment card information or other information you provide to facilitate the payment.  For any issues related to your payment or management of the payment, please access: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039.

Information we collect when you use the services:

When you use our Services, we collect information about which of the services you use and how you use them. We may know, for example, that you used a particular tool to create a design, viewed other users’ designs, and shared your design with the community. Below is a more detailed explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our Services:

Usage Information. We collect information about your activities through our Services. For example, we collect information about:

  • How you interact with the Services, such as when you log into our Services and when you return, which tools you use to create your designs, which pages you view, which searches you submit etc. We also use tools to track your actions with respect to emails we send you such as when you open them and what you click in them. To learn about cookies and other technologies we use to do this, please see “Cookies and other Technologies” below.
  • How you communicate with other users of the Services, such as their names, the time and date of your communications, the number of messages you exchange with your contacts, which contacts you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages (such as when you open a message or save a design).

Content Information. We collect information about the content you provide, for example what is the design ID, date created, opened or published, etc.

Device Phonebook. Because uMake gets its strength from sharing with friends and the community, we may—with your consent—collect information from your device’s phonebook.

Camera and Photos. Our Services allow you to take and upload pictures of your designs.  To allow you to upload or share photos from your camera roll we need to access your camera or photos.

Location Information: We collect information about your estimated location which may be deduced by various technologies including IP address.

Social Media Features: Our Services include social media features, such as links to our Facebook page. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting while using our services, and any Facebook cookies on your device (including your Facebook ID). These services  may set cookies to enable the feature to function properly. Please note that the social media services may collect this information even if you are not logged in to the relevant social media account when you are using the Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Log file information: We collect log information which your browser or device automatically reports each time you interact with the services. This information includes:

  • details about how you have used our Services.
  • device information, such as hardware setting, web browser type and language.
  • IP address.

Information from cookies and other technologies:

We and our research, technology, and marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, or service providers use cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, web storage, and unique advertising identifiers, to collect information about your activity, browser, and device. Cookies are small amounts of data which are sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer or device.  If you choose this option, we use cookies to store your member login credentials automatically. Our web server also creates cookies to uniquely identify each user session when you access the services.  We use web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) along with cookies, to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the services are used, and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

If you prefer, you can usually choose to disable cookies on your browser (see below) but doing so may prevent you from using the full features of the services.

Information we collect from third parties:

We may collect information about you from other users of the Services. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phone book —and you are one of that user’s contacts—we can combine the information we collect from that user with other information we have collected about you. We also obtain information from third parties including social media networks, advertising providers and analytics providers (see below) or publicly available sources. We combine that with the information we collect through our services.
