Our Privacy Policy

Focusing on Your Family

Your privacy as a member of the Let’s Read community is extremely important to 4X4 Studios, LLC ("4x4 Studios"). We are committed to protecting you and your family’s private use of the content on Let’s Read. This private, family network is one of the features that differentiates this app from other Educational and Reading apps. In addition, protecting your family’s privacy is one of the core values of our company. As a result, our privacy policy was defined to clarify the information we collect, how we use this data to improve the user experience, and how we protect the privacy of the members of the Let’s Read community.

Secure Private Family Network

When the design team started working on ways to share a recorded version of a story on Let’s Read, we quickly realized that you needed to feel totally confident that your personalized content would only be accessible by your family or the people you invite to become a member of your family network.

As a result, no other users of Let’s Read, outside of your family network members will be able to access or view the video or audio recordings that you created. You and your children can share your stories without any concern that a random, unknown person will be watching your stories or making comments about the content you created.

Your Network

When you subscribe to Let’s Read, the primary subscriber will serve as the network administrator to set up and manage each private, secure family network. So the subscriber who sets up the account is also the only person who can invite or remove family and friends from your private network.

Please note, when you add more members than your current subscription is set up to accommodate, you will receive a message about the status of the invitation. At that point, you’ll need to decide whether to remove a member so the new person can join or simply keep the network as it is currently configured. Soon, we’ll offer premium options that will give you the ability to add additional members to your basic family network plan.

To Maintain Security

As a requirement for use of our application we obtain certain types of information about our users. The following information describes this information, what we do with it, how we use it and how you can correct or change this information, if you would like to do so.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to the Let’s Read applications, services, letsreadapp.com, website and/or content made available by 4X4 Studios (collectively the “Service", "we", and "us"). By using the Service you are consenting to collection and use of your information as outlined in this privacy policy, as well as to our Terms of Use.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

4X4 Studios collects two types of information: personal data (such as user names and e-mail addresses) (“Personal Data”); and aggregated information (such as the total number of users in a particular category, geographical region, the number of users logging into the Service at a specific time of day or day of the week, etc.).

Your Personal Data

Personal Data is collected through the registration process and use of the Service. Personal Data may include identifying information, such as name and email address, that will be used to generate your user profile or to provide customer support.

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information is collected through various methods: it may come from Service registrations, IP addresses, and your interactions with the Service. Aggregated information is not related to a specific user but is used to analyze patterns of usage. It may include but not be limited to groups organized by age, gender, ethnicity, geographic region, and other information.

We collect this information to help us personalize our subscribers’ experience with the Let’s Read Service. This aggregate data helps us better target our content to specific patterns of usage and interests. It also helps us understand who uses our Service, and it gives us data that will o help improve the Service features, as well as the user experience for members of our Let’s Read community.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the web. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregate data for customization. 4X4 Studios does not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information.

Although your session on the Service will be logged through your username, this process will serve to track your session information. We collect aggregated information, not personal data. If this aggregated information is published or transferred to any other person, it will be in an anonymous format so that no individual data will be shared. This aggregated data may also include user IP addresses, device types, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Let’s Read Service.

Use of Your Data

We may collect data related to users, including but not limited to the names, email addresses, demographic information, stories or other material submitted by users as further described above (collectively the “Service Data”). All Service Data shall be the sole property of 4X4 Studios. Without limiting the foregoing, we may distribute, sell, license and otherwise use Service Data in aggregate form only (so that no user is personally identifiable) for services provided by 4X4 Studios to its partners, licensors, and other purposes

We may use your Personal Data to send you marketing or promotional materials related to the Service, including information about new features and enhancements, special offers and other events of interest that are related to the Let’s Read app.

We agree that we will not disclose to third parties the following information: user names; user email addresses, physical addresses, without your consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may disclose any such information in accordance with a valid judicial or other governmental order, provided that we have given you reasonable notice and opportunity to object prior to such disclosure. As time passes, 4X4 Studios may be sold along with its assets, or other transactions may occur in which user data (including but not limited to Personal Data) is one of the business assets transferred. In such a case, the user data which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.

Your Data Security

The Service has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, data transmission over the Internet or wireless networks cannot be guaranteed to be completely secure. Although we are committed to safeguarding your privacy and security, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Links to Other Sites

Our website may contain links to other sites, and those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as 4X4 Studios. For instance, if you click on a hyperlink on the letsreadapp.com website, this may take you away from letsreadapp.com and to an entirely different site. This can include links from advertisers, content providers, and others who may use the Let’s Read logo, brand, and or style as a result of a partnership arrangement. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect and use data in ways that we would not. Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave the Service and to read the privacy policies of every website or application that collects personally identifiable information from you. The Privacy Policy applies only to the Service.
