Information We Collect

1. What You Directly Provide Us

For you to create a Lumicademy Account, we need to collect a few important details about you: a unique username you’d like to be known as; a password; answer some questions about your age; your device identifiers; and provide any one or more of the following to identify you in communications from and to your Lumicademy Account (“Account Identifiers”) – an email address we can contact you at, a mobile phone number or other social media profiles. You may update or correct most of the basic Lumicademy Account information by editing your Account settings within Lumicademy. If you delete your Account, keep in mind that we may retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time, or as required by law.

2. What You Automatically Provide Us When You Use Our Services

Because Lumicademy is about direct communications with people you know, there is some information we collect automatically when you access our Services which we use to facilitate the broad range of communications offered through our Services:

  • Usage Information. We may collect information about your activity and the messages you send and receive through our Services. For example, we collect information such as the time, date, sender, the recipient of a message.
  • Content Information. We may retain information and content you provide to our Services. For example, we retain shared documents and materials for conferences.
  • Device Information. We may collect information about your device, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, browser type and language, mobile device phone number, and mobile network information. We also collect certain device information that will help us diagnose problems in the rare event you experience any crash or other problem while using our Services, such as the list of apps on your device and other information about your device’s performance at the time of the event for troubleshooting purposes.
  • Website Log Information. When you use the Lumicademy website, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your Account, the Account you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the Lumicademy Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received, or if you update or request any status information, including time and date stamps and the mobile phone numbers the messages were sent from and to.

3. The Information Lumicademy Does Not Collect

Except for the Account Identifiers you provide directly to us, Lumicademy does not collect names, emails, addresses or other contact information.

4. Information We Collect When You Contact Us

When you contact us for support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer. For instance, if you submit artwork, files, or any other materials to us through our websites, we will collect what you give us. This information is subject to the Terms of Use section regarding Feedback.

How We Use Information

If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Lumicademy Services, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Lumicademy website and Lumicademy mobile application. In particular, your Account Identifiers are essential to your use of the Lumicademy Service and will be retained. Any personally identifiable information within your Public Submissions that you voluntarily disclose in the Lumicademy Services becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the Lumicademy Service (unless such user is blocked by you). Your name (as it is saved in other user’s mobile phone address book or contact list) may be displayed to other users when you update your Public Submissions through the Lumicademy Service and other users may contact you through the Lumicademy Service. We do not use your Account Identifiers or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your Account Identifiers without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Lumicademy Site or Lumicademy Service changes or for customer service purposes). We may use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Lumicademy website and Lumicademy Services and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Lumicademy Services or Lumicademy website; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

Where Information Is Processed and Data Security

The Services are hosted, controlled, and offered by Lumicademy from its facilities in the United States of America, and are governed by U.S. law. Lumicademy makes no representations that the Lumicademy Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Lumicademy Services from outside the United States of America do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law. If you are a user accessing the Services from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from those of the United States, please be advised that through your continued use of the Services, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to that transfer.

Lumicademy uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Lumicademy and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured Wi-Fi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Lumicademy Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Lumicademy makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Lumicademy learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Lumicademy may post a notice on the Lumicademy Site or through the Lumicademy Service if a security breach occurs.

How We Share Information

  • We share messages to other Lumicademy users who you specifically communicate with.
  • We share your Public Submissions, including selfies, photos, your display name and other user content that you provide with other Lumicademy users who you interact with on the Services.
We do not sell or share your personally identifiable information with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may share your personally identifiable information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the Lumicademy Service. We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Lumicademy Site. We may share information about you with service providers who perform services on our behalf, and we may share information about you with your consent or at your direction, or as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy. We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you. As an example: Because it’s not always clear whether a new friend request comes from someone you actually know, we may share whether you and the requestor have Lumicademy friends in common without disclosing the usernames of those common friends. The Services may also contain third-party links provided by another company. By going to those links, you may be providing personal information directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our Services. We may collect and release personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law), international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened. Lumicademy also reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Lumicademy believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Use, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Lumicademy Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Lumicademy, our users or others.


Lumicademy is neither directed to, nor intended for people who are under 13 years old; persons under the age of 13 are prohibited from creating Lumicademy Accounts, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from anyone under 13. If Lumicademy learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected in the Lumicademy Services, then Lumicademy may deactivate the Account and delete all such information. Otherwise, you affirm that you are either at least 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms, and to abide by and comply with these Terms. In addition, you affirm that you have not been previously suspended or removed from the Services and do not have more than one Lumicademy Account.

In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

In the event that Lumicademy is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
