In short, we will not sell, lease, or exchange any personally identifiable information provided to us through My Studio Assistant or share this personal data with third parties in ways other than as described in this Privacy and Security Policy.
Registering to use My Studio Assistant (aka. "the Service") requires you to complete a two-step login procedure in order for us to provide you with a personalized account. During this account registration process, we will collect your email address and a unique password. After submitting a completed registration form, you will receive an email from us requiring you to 'double-confirm' your new account by clicking on a link within that email. Unless we receive this confirmation with 24 hours, we will cancel your pending account and remove your email and password from our databases.
We use third party service providers to assist us in managing and administering communications and emails sent to us through www.MyStudioAssistant.com (aka. "the Website") and through some My Studio Assistant-managed sites. Any personal information disclosed through such communications will be governed by those third party vendors’ privacy policies as applicable.
When subscribing to the Service with a paid account, My Studio Assistant will collect several additional items of personally identifiable information from you, namely a credit card number, card expiration date, security code, and billing address. This information will be kept on file in our third-party payment processor's secure server so that we can verify credit card authenticity and process your recurring invoices according to the applicable Service Agreement. If we are unable to process your subscription payment for a given month, this information, along with your account information, may be used to contact you. If you choose to discontinue your Account with My Studio Assistant, your credit card information will be immediately and completely removed from our third-party payment processor's files.
Any personally identifiable information that you post in the form of Comments and other User-Provided Content (aka. "Content") via the Website may be read, collected, and/or used by other subscribers and visitors to the Website as well as by other third parties. Although we make efforts to reduce misappropriation of this information, Nuvisto is not responsible for the Content and cannot guarantee that other subscribers, visitors, and other third parties have not made copies of and/or will not use such information outside of the Website.
The Website provides subscribers and users of websites published using My Studio Assistant with opportunities to interact and post content to the web through various social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Flickr, YouTube, etc.. Your interactions with these tools and any information you provide in connection with these interactions are publicly viewable outside of the Website domain. Please be aware that Nuvisto is not responsible for information posted in these forums.
My Studio Assistant collects personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy and Security Policy so that we can provide you with a service that allows you to maintain an online presence. My Studio Assistant lets you choose if any piece of your personally identifiable information (i.e. your name) is presented on or through your website.
My Studio Assistant uses your contact information to send urgent notices regarding service-related issues such as maintenance periods, billing problems, account expirations, and other items that may impact delivery of the Service. Non-urgent notices will be delivered via My Studio Assistant's website interface. With your permission, we also may use and disclose your information to our third party service providers in order to deliver messages regarding new services or other products from Nuvisto.
Information that we collect through our service logs is used to identify potential cases of abuse and to establish a statistical basis for determining and evaluating the Website's performance. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in any way that can identify a particular user of My Studio Assistant.
Information we collect may be disclosed if we are legally required to do so at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws, or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website.
We store all information that we collect in secure databases protected through a suite of industry-standard security and access controls, including such things as secure passwords, SSL encryption, disk-base encryption, firewall protection, and more. Nevertheless, no company, including ours, can completely eliminate the security risks associated with transmitting personal information through online media, and so you do so at your own risk.

If you wish to remove only your billing information, you must downgrade your account to a free subscription. Each of these tasks can be accomplished at any time using the My Studio Assistant management interface.

We may release specific account and other personal information as deemed necessary in order to comply with the law, enforce or apply our Terms of Service, or protect the rights, property, and/or safety of My Studio Assistant, our users, or any others.

If at any time you would like to stop future delivery of email from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions included at the bottom of each email communication we send, send an email to us directly or write to us by surface mail.
