Privacy Policy

Welcome to StoriBlocks (“StoriBlocks,” “we,” “us” or “our”). StoriBlocks offers a social networking service which enables its users, primarily college students, to create profile pages and to connect with others, by sharing originally created content.

  1. Our Privacy Policy explains how we and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with StoriBlocks services (collectively, the "Service"), and your choices about the collection and use of your information. 
  2. By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to post content, including photos, comments and other materials ("User Content"), to the Service and to share User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use, Intellectual Property Policy, and Community Guidelines. 
  3. Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service ("Users").

We may modify or update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please review it periodically. We may provide you additional forms of notice of modifications or updates as appropriate under the circumstances. Your continued use of StoriBlocks or the Service after any modification to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such modification.
