– Overview –

Children

We take many special precautions to protect the privacy of children under 18.

  • At our websites, online services or apps intended for children, we do not collect personal contact information (like full name, e-mail address, phone number or home address) from children without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law.
  • We collect some information (like IP address, mobile device UDID, operating system, etc.) automatically and use technology like cookies to provide functionality and support our operations. We do not permit interest-based advertising on Sites or Apps directed to children under 18 or where we have actual knowledge that a child is under 18.
  • We do not ask for more personal information than is necessary for a child to participate in an activity.
  • We take steps to prevent children from posting or publicly disclosing personal contact information.
  • Parents can ask us to update or delete their children’s information.

What We Collect – Adults and Teens

We collect information from adults and teens to serve your needs, manage our content and advertising, operate efficiently, and improve our products and services.

  • We collect personal contact information, like e-mail address or phone number, from consumers 18 or older when voluntarily submitted, including when needed to fulfill transactions. Registration may be required to use some Sites, services or Apps.
  • We may obtain information from commercial sources and combine it with information we have collected.
  • Certain information may be collected automatically at our Sites or Apps, like your IP address, UDID, browser setting, operating system, referring domain, language preferences, mobile carrier if you are using a mobile device, general location (e.g., zip code, but not specific address without consent) and other information.

User-Generated Content

  • You may be able to post or upload content, like comments, reviews, photos, etc. Registration may be required.

  • We also work with third parties who offer analytics or deliver targeted ads online or through Apps. They use technology and collect device identifiers, such as your IP address or mobile UDID, and information on your activities, to do so. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads but will still see ads, although they may be less relevant to you.
  • Tools are available to help you control some of these technologies.
