This Privacy Policy is an integrated part of the Company's Terms of Use (available at: userstyles.org/terms-of-use) ("Terms of Use") and is a legally binding agreement between you and the Company. The Privacy Policy and Terms of Use shall be binding upon any use or attempt to use our unique Service through the Website or Stylish Extension, including any portion thereof. Definitions herein shall have the same meaning as defined in the Terms of Use.

Stylish, which is part of the SimilarWeb product family, is a user-generated content product, offering a platform for a large community of users that wish to personalize their browsing experience by creating customized “Web Styles” and uploading and sharing them with other users ("Stylish Community") solely for personal non-commercial use.

This Privacy Policy provides important and transparent disclosures on how and why we collect, share and use our users' data and we encourage you to read the Privacy Policy carefully prior to using our Service and to use it to make informed decisions.

We reserve the right to periodically amend or revise the Privacy Policy at our sole discretion. Such changes and updates will be effective immediately upon the display of the revised Privacy Policy. Thus, we encourage you to check this Privacy Policy regularly for updates, so that you are fully informed of how your data is collected and used by the Company and your related rights. The last revision date will be reflected in the "Last Modified" heading. Your continued use of the Service following the display of such amendments constitutes your acknowledgement and consent to such amendments to the Privacy Policy and your agreement to be bound by the terms of such amended policy. In the event of material changes that will adversely affect your use of the Service or the data collection by us, we will make best efforts to provide you with notification through the Website or Service.

USER GENERATED CONTENT
User generated content ("UGC"), refers to a wide variety of content that is produced by you and other users of the Service, as opposed to content generated by us. The UGC shall include, among other things, Web Styles, images, comments, posts, texts, icons, links, opinions and feedback provided by you and by other users of the Website and Services. By exchanging, providing or uploading UGC, you grant us permission to use, store and process the aforesaid content, including any of your personal data that are contained therein (e.g., comments, rates, etc.).

The UGC is stored and available on our servers, however the UGC may be deleted at any time by: (i) by you as you may delete the UGC uploaded or provided by you; (ii) by us, solely by providing us with a written request, sent to: contact [at] userstyles.org. We will use our best efforts to delete such UGC promptly, but in some cases, where technical limitations apply, there may be some delay in deleting such UGC, or it may not be possible to delete all the UGC.

HOW IS THE DATA USED?
We collect your information during your access or use of the Website and Service as detailed above. We use your information collected online to provide you with our Service. We collect your information in an effort to improve our users’ experience, to communicate with you about our Services, and to further develop, customize, enhance and improve the performance of our Service, the Company’s website and the Stylish Extension. We also use Non-Personal Information, aggregated information or statistics regarding user browsing behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, the Service in the form of aggregated data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports, which do not describe or identify any individual user.

HOW IS THE DATA SHARED?
We do not share any Personal Information collected from you with third parties or any of our partners. However, we may disclose information you submitted if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (ii) to enforce our policies and agreements, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) to investigate, detect, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or other wrongdoing, suspected fraud or security issues; (iv) to establish or exercise our rights to defend against legal claims; (v) to prevent harm to the rights, property or safety of us, our users, yourself or any third party; or (vi) for the purpose of collaborating with law enforcement agencies or in case we find it necessary in order to enforce intellectual property or other legal rights. The Non-Personal Information we collect may be used or shared in any of the above circumstances, as well as (i) for the purpose of providing and improving our Services; or (ii) internally within the Company to conduct business and marketing analysis, and enhance your experience; or (iii) with our partners as part of Company’s aggregated data analysis services. If we combine Personal Information with Non-Personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined. We may share your Non-Personal Information with our parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control (collectively "Affiliated Companies") solely if and when applicable or necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We may share Information, including Personal Information, in the event of a corporate transaction (e.g. sale of a substantial part of our business, merger, consolidation or asset sale). In the event of the above, our Affiliated Companies or acquiring company will assume the rights and obligations as described in this Privacy Policy.

OPT OUT RIGHT
Even after providing your consent to this Privacy Policy, you are entitled to change your mind. If you do, you may opt out of the data collection and sharing process (by deselecting the checkbox next to the words 'Send anonymous data to Stylish developers' in the 'Manage Styles' section of the Stylish extension). After you opt out, we will no longer collect and share your data as described in this Privacy Policy. Note that once you opt out, part of the Services provided by Stylish will no longer be available, meaning 1) install count won't be save; and 2) Suggested Web Styles won't be available in the extension interface.

USER RIGHTS
Please note that, unless you instruct us otherwise, we retain the information we collect for as long as needed to provide the services described herein and to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

If you have provided us with Personal Information by contacting us, such as name and email address, and you wish to remove such information, please contact us immediately at: contact [at]userstyles.org. In addition, the data we receive depends on your privacy settings with the network (i.e., Gmail, Yahoo) and you should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our Service.

HOW DO WE SAFEGUARD YOUR INFORMATION?
We use best efforts to use security methods and encryptions when handling sensitive data (i.e., handle the user data securely, including transmitting it via modern cryptography). Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Service cannot be 100% guaranteed.
