Governing Law, Venue, and Jurisdiction

 

Imagitopia is a production of Android Press, which is a US-based company, and our websites and their content are hosted in the United States.

If you live outside the United States, be advised that your personal information may be transferred to the United States and you consent to (a) such transfer, and (b) the application of the laws of the State of Oregon, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, which will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Android Press.

If for some reason decide you do want to sue us, which would make us very sad, you’ll need to do so in the State of Oregon in the United States. By using our websites or listening to our episodes, you consent to and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Oregon.

Other Stuff

 

These Terms of Use (which include our Privacy Policy) constitute the whole agreement between you and Android Press regarding your use of our Imagitopia websites, and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Android Press relating to your use of the websites.

To the extent that a translation of these Terms of Use differ from the English language version, the English language version controls.

Android Press not exerting any right, remedy, or provision of these Terms of Use does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance.

If any provision of these Terms of Use are held invalid, the remainder shall continue to be valid and enforceable in full force and effect. Likewise if any provision of these Terms of Use shall be deemed unlawful by any magistrate of competent jurisdiction, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Privacy Policy

 

This section outlines the kinds of information Android Press collects, how we use it, and how you can control how your information is shared. 

The policy only applies to our websites. When you follow a link to any other website, this privacy policy does not apply, and Android Press has no control over what information that third party website may collect from you or what they may do with that information.

We Don’t Ever Sell Data

 

We do not sell your data to anyone, ever. We do not make any data available to third parties unless a law enforcement agency or court of competent jurisdiction forces us to, or if we’re working with said third party to publish short fiction. See the Sharing Your Information section below.

Info We Collect and What We Do With It

Site Visitors

 

When you visit this site, our web server logs your IP address, the page(s) you visited, and/or file you downloaded.

We determine our audience size by using our web hosting provider’s logging and traffic analysis tools, and we report that size to any potential sponsors. We don’t and we won't ever attempt to connect your IP address to you, and we don’t share this information with anyone, ever. We only use the information to see how many people are visiting our site and what they're downloading or buying.

We may ask for permission to keep your email address on file, for example to be considered for future narration assignments, or of course if you signed up to be on our mailing list. When we ask you to opt in, we’ll also tell you how you can opt out. You can also contact us at any time to opt out.​

 

Donors, Patrons, and Customers

 

Our primarily business on this site is buying and producing audio fiction to distribute on the internet for free through the Imagitopia podcast. In order to make that happen we ask for donations of support from folks who listen to our show or read our website, and we also sell sponsorship of episodes and a limited amount of podcast branded merchandise. In the process of accepting your donation or payment, we may see the email address you use to log into one of our donation/payment platforms, which  include but aren't necessarily limited to PayPal and Patreon.

We don’t receive any credit card or bank information from any third party site. If we ever do receive such information, we'll contact you immediate to notify you that such breech has occurred.

 

We’ll use the name you provide to your donation platform of choice to thank you in our donor appreciation blog and social media posts. We’ll use your email address to send you regular (usually monthly) updates to our Premium Content folder, along with news or other announcements. 

 

If you don’t want to be included in our donor appreciation posts, you can contact us at any time and we’ll remove you from the list. But thank you just the same!

Anyone We Contract With

 

If you’re an author, or if you narrate any stories for us, or if you're an artist or any other recipient of a contract from us, we'll ask for some personal information we need to complete the paperwork. This generally includes mailing address (which is legally necessary for a valid contract with an individual), your email address (so we can communicate with you about the contract and its terms), and your preferred payment method. The purpose for which we use or store any of that information is to  communicate with you about or process your contract.

Collection of Information by Third Parties

 

We don’t currently sell website advertising. If that changes, then this section will be updated to notify users that your IP address will be provided to third parties if you visit our site and see their ads, that those third parties might use cookies, and how you can opt out.

We can't see and are not aware of any business dealings you have with any of our sponsors. Sponsors do not pass any information back to us, and we don’t see your transactions with them if you have any.

Sharing Your Information

 

Android Press only shares your information with others under the following circumstances:

  • as described in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policies above;

  • with our contractors and vendors to the extent necessary for them to process your information as outlined in this policy;

  • as may be required by law enforcement agencies or courts of competent jurisdiction if they ever force us to do so with a valid search warrant; and

  • as we, in our sole judgment, may deem it necessary to investigate any breach of security or reported harassment by other site users.

 

If Android Press becomes involved in a merger or acquisition or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, and we hold any of your personal data, we will provide notice to you (via an update to this policy) of any personal data to be transferred and/or subject to a different policy.

 

We may also share with third parties aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of people who download from us every month, or purchased a particular item of merchandise over a certain date range.

 

The End. Thanks for Rea
