This Policy applies solely to information collected through the Company’s mobile Applications, web sites, and their respective interactive features, applications, widgets, blogs and contents whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology (collectively, the “Services”).
Please read this Policy carefully, because by using the Services you are acknowledging that you understand and agree to the terms of this Policy.
1. What is Personal Information?
“Personal Information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, or credit card number) or information about that individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information.
Personal Information does not include “aggregate information”, which is data we collect about the use of the Services or about a group or category of services or users from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. Personal Information also does not include Usage Information (as defined below) or your Device Identifier (as defined below).
This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate or Usage Information that is not connected to Personal Information.
2. Information Collected on Our Services
Information You Provide To Us
You may choose to provide Personal Information through the Services.
For example, the Company may collect Personal Information when you register on the Services, request information, or participate in some promotion, survey or other feature of the Services, or otherwise communicate or interact with us. The Company may also ask you to provide other information about yourself, such as demographic information or certain information about your preferences, product use, and interests.
If we combine demographic or other information we collect about you with Personal Information about you, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. If you do not want your Personal Information collected, please do not submit it.
Information provided about your children and their Artwork will be considered “Personal Information” and will only be viewable by Parent Subscribers and Fan Subscribers.
Information Collected by Automated Means
Whenever you visit or interact with the Services, the Company, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Services are accessed and used (“Usage Information”).
Usage Information may include, in part, device type, operating system, the page served, the time, how many users visited the Services, and the preceding page views. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if the Company associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, the Company treats it as Personal Information.
In the course of collecting Usage Information, the Company also automatically collects your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Services.
A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
When you visit the Services, we may view your Device Identifier. We use this information to determine the general physical location of your Device and understand from what regions of the world the visitors to the Services come. We also may use this information to enhance the Services.
The technologies used on the Services to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include, without limitation.
Like many companies, we use “cookies” on the Services.
Cookies are data files placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Services. The Company, or our third-party advertising service providers, may place cookies or similar files on your Device for security purposes, to tell us whether you have visited the Services before, if you are a new visitor or to otherwise facilitate site navigation, and to personalize your experience while visiting our Services.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers and devices will allow you to:
- change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it;
- to disable existing cookies;
- or to set your browser to automatically reject any cookies.
However, please be aware that if you disable or reject cookies, some features and services on our Services may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize and associate you with your profile.
