Introduction

3DBear Oy (“3DBear” or “we”), collects personal data of its customers, users and visitors of its websites and applications whilst providing its services. The 3DBear application is the mobile application developed by 3DBear in order to provide its services to customers using mobile and other handheld devices. To use the service, you are required to register to 3DBear by providing your real name or alias and your email address. Some functions and sub-services of the site and application may require more information to be provided, but this will be clearly stated and you will be requested to provide the extra information before you can use these certain services and functions.

This Privacy Policy governs the principles of storing and processing the personal data included in the Register. This Privacy Policy explains what data we process, how we do that and how you may use your rights as a data subject (e.g. right to object, right of access).

This Privacy Policy constitutes a description of the data file of the Register as set out in the Finnish Personal Data Act (Sections 10 and 24).

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time to if required in order to reflect the changes in data processing practices or otherwise. You can find the current version on our website (3dbear.io).

 The Privacy Policy does not address and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of any third parties.

Purpose for processing personal data

There are several purposes for the processing of your personal data by 3DBear:

To provide our services

3DBear processes your personal data in the first place to be able to deliver our services to you and to run, maintain and develop our businesses. We would like to know who you are, so we can tailor our service to meet your needs and desires as precisely as possible. Some of the functions and services on this site and our application are simply unable to work properly if we do not know who is using them. If you contact our customer service, we will use the information provided by you to answer your questions or solve your complaint. In order to ensure that our services and products are in line with your needs, these data can be used for things like customer satisfaction surveys. We might also request another party to do this for us.

For customer communication (including marketing)

3DBear processes your personal data to contact you regarding our services and to inform you of changes to our services. Your data is also used for research and analysis to improve our services, websites and applications. We may also use your data entered on our websites and applications in certain cases to send information and marketing communication by e-mail, provided that you have given us consent to that or other legitimate grounds for such marketing communication exists.

Legitimate grounds for processing and storage limitation

3DBear processes your personal data to perform our contractual obligations towards you and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we process your personal data to pursue our legitimate interest to maintain and develop our businesses.

We store personal data only as long as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Once the data is no longer necessary, we delete or anonymize it as soon as possible.

Processed Data and Sources of Data

3DBear collects two types of information from our customers: (i) Customer Data; and (ii) Technical Data. Although we do not normally use Technical Data to identify you as an individual, you can sometimes be recognized from it. In such situations, Technical Data can also be considered personal data under applicable laws.

We may collect the following basic Customer Data and store it in the Register: (i) first and last name; (ii) e-mail address, telephone number, address; (iii) payment information and transactional data. In addition, we may collect the following data arising from the customer relationship (i) information relating to maintaining the customer relationship; (ii) information on marketing permissions; and (iii) customer service data.

We may collect Customer Data from our customers and visitors in a variety of ways, including, when they register to our service, when they submit customer feedback, claims or other communication or when they subscribe to a newsletter or fill out a form. Further, please note that we also collect details of any transactions and payments you carry out through our service. We will collect Customer Data from customers and visitors only if they voluntarily submit such information to us or carry out transactions or payments through our services, sites or applications. We may also update and supplement personal data with information provided by third parties in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

We and/or our authorized third party service providers, may automatically collect Technical Data when you visit or interact with our service, site or application. Technical Data may include the browser name, the type of computer or device, time spent on website, interaction with the services, URL of the website you visited before and after visiting the Services, the time and date of user visits, surfing habits, IP address, operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar technical information.

Cookies

We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a 3DBear website, including cookies. Cookies allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our websites and monitor the use of the websites. This helps us to improve our websites and better serve our users. We also use cookies that make the use of the website easier for you, for example by remembering usernames, passwords and (language) preferences. We also use tracking and analytics cookies to see how well our services are being received by our users.

The Service may also contain advertisements served by third parties that deliver cookies or other tracking technologies to your device so your online activities across third-party sites or online services can be tracked for advertising purposes. These third-party services are governed by separate privacy policies. The Network Advertising Initiative provides opt-out mechanisms from some behavioral online advertising: www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Users located in the European Union can learn of their rights relating to online advertising at www.youronlinechoices.eu.

You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, note that some parts of our sites and services may not function properly. For more information about cookies and how to delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Transfer to countries outside Europe

3DBear may transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area.

If you wish to know more about international transfers of your personal data, you may contact us via the contact details above.

Recipients

We do not share your personal data with third parties outside unless one of the following circumstances applies:

For legal reasons

We may share your personal data with third parties if we have a good-faith belief that access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of 3DBear, our users or the public as far as in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform you about such processing.

For other legitimate reasons

If 3DBear is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we may transfer your personal data to the third party involved. However, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of all personal data. We will give notice to all customers concerned before the personal data are transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy.

Privacy Policy

 

1. What is 3DBear?

3DBear, Inc. (collectively with any subsidiaries, "3DBear", “we”, or “us”) has a goal to help educators create an environment in which students can learn life-skills that will make them successful in the 21st century – to elicit collaboration, improve multidisciplinary skills, develop a growth mindset and creative problem solving. 3DBear is a gamified learning application that allows users to implement virtual 3D models in a real living environment. In this series of multidisciplinary learning modules, students can use the application to redesign their physical surroundings, create art objects and plan games for themselves. After completing a series of learning activities, students will become familiar with the basics of AR and the practical issues regarding designing an environment. In addition, students will also experience the process of art creation, collaboration and citizen participation. To achieve this goal, we must collect certain information from our users, subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

This may include a name, email address, username, password, or assessment

Note that anything you post to a Community Communication may be public.

 

  1. Third Party Services, Social Media Platforms, and Information Third Parties Provide About You

Third parties may provide us with information about you. For example, if you are on a third party web site, and you opt-in to receive information from us, that third party will forward information about you to us so that we may contact you as requested.

 

The Services may permit interactions between the Services and a third party web site or service, such as enabling you to "like" a product within our Services or "share" content to other web sites. If you choose to "like" or "share" content or to otherwise post information from or via the Services to a third party web site, feature or application, that information may be publicly displayed, and the third party web site may have access to information about you and your use of our Services. Similarly, if you publically post information on a third party platform that references 3DBear or one of the Services, your post may be published on our Services in accordance with terms of that third party. These features may collect your IP address or other Device Identifier, which page you are visiting on our web site, and may set a cookie to enable the third party feature to function properly. Third party features and applications are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy(ies) of the company(ies) providing it.

 

The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that third party web site and service. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected in compliance with all applicable laws.




 

Information We Collect Automatically

Like other web sites and online services, we and our analytics providers, vendors and other third party service providers may automatically collect certain "Usage Information" whenever you access and use the Services.

 

Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL that referred you to our Services (if applicable), the search terms you entered into a search engine that lead you to our Services (if applicable), all of the areas within our Services that you visit, and the time of day you used the Services, among other information. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including to select appropriate content to display to you and to enhance or otherwise improve the Services and our products.

 

In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier") for any computer, mobile phone or other device (any, a "Device") you may use to access the Services. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access a Service, and our servers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access a Service, internet service provider (ISP), date and time of your visit, browser language, browser type, referring and exit pages and URLs, amount of time spent on particular pages, which parts of our Services you use, which links you click, search terms, operating system, traffic and related statistics, keywords, and/or other general browsing or usage data.. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.

 

Usage Information is collected via tracking technologies, including:

 

  1. Cookies: Our Services utilize Cookies to improve your current and future experience by allowing us to understand your usage of our Services. For example, cookies help our systems recognize you if you return to our Services shortly after exiting them. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer that allow us to personalize the content of our Services. Cookies can be turned off via your browser settings if you so choose. However, if you turn your cookies off, some features of our Services may not function properly. 

 

  1. Web Beacons: We may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs), that help us better manage content on our Services by informing us of what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users for our affiliate program. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. This information is used to help improve the overall quality and experience of our Services. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' Personal Information.

 

  1. An Embedded Script: is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer or other device from our server or a third party service provider and is deactivated or deleted when you disconnect from the Services.

 

In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

 

  1. Flash & HTML5: We use Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as HTML5 to store content, information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML 5 & Flash to collect and store information.

 

Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. To manage Flash LSOs please click here:
http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html  

 

How We Respond To Do Not Track Signals:

Please note that your browser setting may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" (DNT) signal to websites and online service you visit. DNT is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the internet industry is still working to determine what DNT means, how to comply with DNT, and how to create a common approach to responding to DNT. To find out more about "Do Not Track", please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

 

4. How does 3DBear use the information it collects?

We may use information about you, including Personal Information, the information you provide in your Profile, User Content, and Usage Information to:

    1. Service Providers

 We will share your Personal Information with third parties to provide services to us or you in connection with the Services, but subject to confidentiality obligations which limit their use and disclosure of such information.

You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on Services of any completed change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.

6. How does 3DBear work with third parties?

 

No Targeted Advertising to Students or Parents

3DBear will never use any student Personal Information to advertise or market to students or their parents. We will not mine student Personal Information any purposes other than those agreed to by the parties. Data mining or scanning of user content for the purpose of advertising or marketing to students or their parents is prohibited.

 

Third Party Analytics Providers

Certain content provided through the Services may be hosted and served by third parties In addition, the Services may link to third party web sites or content over which 3DBear has no control and which are governed by the privacy policies and business practices of those third parties. In addition, third-parties may have different privacy policies which apply to such third party use of your information.

8. How does 3DBear protect children’s information?

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to 3DBear. For that reason, we created certain features designed to help protect Personal Information relating to children who are less than 16 years of age (“Child Users”). 3DBear does not knowingly permit Child Users to use our Services without prior, express consent from a parent or legal guardian. If we learn that Personal Information of a Child User has been collected on our Services without prior parental consent, then we will take appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian (“Parent”) and discover that your child under the age of 13 has a registered account with our Services without your consent, please alert 3DBear at support@3dbear.fi and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.

 

How does a child register and use the services?

Schools and/or teachers are required to obtain any necessary parental consent before providing Child Users with access to the Services.  Any consumer user must register and pay the subscription with a valid credit card prior to accessing the Services. By accepting those charges, the parent is consenting to a Child User accessing the Services and providing Personal Information to 3DBear.

 

What children’s information is visible to others?

No student’s profile is made available or visible to the public through 3DBear. If a teacher utilizes certain features through 3DBear’s App on a device in the classroom, other students can view User Content created by other students this shared device, but students can’t view each other’s information directly.

 

Parents can request to view view their own child’s User Content by contacting their child’s teacher or school.

 

9. How does 3DBear protect and store my information?

3DBear takes data security very seriously.  3DBear takes commercially reasonable technical, physical, and administrative security measures designed to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  Such measures vary depending on the sensitivity of the information at issue. Measures taken to protect your data include:

  • We continually test 3DBear’s security practices for vulnerabilities

  • We periodically review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems

  • We continually develop and implement features to keep your personal information safe - for example, when you enter any information anywhere on the Service, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL/TLS) by default

  • We ensure passwords are stored and transferred securely using encryption and salted hashing

  • We also operate a ‘bug bounty’ security program to encourage an active community of third party security researchers to report any security bugs to us. More information on this is available by contacting us at support@3dbear.fi

  • Every 3DBear employee participates in training on the importance of and methods for protecting Personal Information. Training consists of how to remain compliant with federal and state regulations (e.g . COPPA), 3DBear policies, and general security posturing to protect student data (including techniques such as Two Factor Authentication, Drive Encryption, creating and managing strong passwords, etc).  

  • All 3DBear employees are trained in security practices and procedures designed to keep Your Data under strict internal controls.

  • Developers peer-review code to make sure changes adhere to best practices for security.

  • Administrators are knowledgeable of security practices and harden the infrastructure with necessary patches, monitor security resources for advisories and vulnerabilities, and scan the environment and application to ensure that student information remains secure.

 

Please note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

 

How will 3DBear handle a data breach or security incident?

In the event that 3DBear becomes aware of a data breach impacting your Personal Information, we will provide notification in compliance with all applicable laws. For example, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.3dbear.io) or elsewhere on the Service, and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
