Privacy Policy

Effective Dec 1, 2021


This Privacy Policy describes how Croquet Corporation collects, process and stores your personal information. You accept this Privacy Policy when you open an account or use this website (“the Site”).

By registering for an account or using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

We may update this Privacy Policy at any time by simply posting such addition or modification on the Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated in this Privacy Policy at the time such information was collected, we will notify users by way of an email or via a prominent notice on our Site.

Collection and Use of Your Personal Information

We ask for your username, email address and a password when you create an account on the Site. Signing up for an account allows us to communicate with you concerning changes in our Terms of Service or this Privacy Policy, and to alert you to new demonstrations available on the Site or to further developments relating to Croquet Studio. Any emails that we send to you will include a functionality that allows you to opt out of receiving marketing emails or administrative emails or both.

If you send us emails or other communications that include personal information, we will retain that information in our files to improve any service that we may provide to you in the future. You can, at any time, request that we delete such information from our files, and we will do so.

When you use the Site, our servers automatically record standard information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as the page you visited, your Internet Protocol address, croquet cookie information, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your visit. Croquet uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the Site.

Generally, croquet automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components. This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data enables us to determine how users interact with the Site, so we can identify areas for improvement.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information such as the number of users who accessed or used particular demonstrations or other features of the Site. Such information does not identify you individually.

We may employ other companies to perform tasks on our behalf and sometimes need to share your information with them to assist us in providing information or services to you. Examples include analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. Any such other companies will be contractually obligated to us not to use such information for any other purpose.

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer and website user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if croquet, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, customer and website user information would be one of the assets that is transferred.

Additionally, we may disclose your personal information after notifying you and obtaining your consent.

We may also need to disclose personal information when required by law, if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process, enforce or apply our Terms of Service or other agreements that we have with you; or protect the rights, property, or safety of croquet, our employees, our users, or others.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies to make croquet easier for you to use, for example by remembering that you are logged in. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer‘s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Croquet cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. You can set your browser to refuse all cookies, but some croquet features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. We recommend that you leave the cookies enable, however, to improve your experience with the Site.
