Although most of our Services are intended for adults, we recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of children who may access our Services online. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss with their children what data should be released on the Internet, especially personal data.

Our Sites, Services, and Software are not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect data from children under 13.

If you believe we have any data from or about a child under 13, please contact us, and we will promptly take the necessary steps to remove all such data.

Data we Process

Legal Bases for Processing

We process your personal data based on CCPA requirements, including type and context of data collection, and use four legal bases: consent, contractual necessity, legitimate interests, and legal obligations.

As a company operating in California and providing services to residents across the United States, we are committed to complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and emerging state data protection laws. We process your personal data based on the requirements of CCPA, including the type of data we collect and the context in which we collect it. When you provide us with your personal data through our Services, we may ask for your country of residence, or we may determine your location based on your IP address or device registration country to ensure that we are complying with the CCPA.

Under the CCPA, we may process your personal data if it is necessary to fulfill a business purpose, to provide you with our Services, or to comply with a legal obligation. We may also process your personal data if you have provided us with your consent to do so, or if we have a legitimate interest in doing so, which does not outweigh your privacy rights. We will always ensure that we have a legal basis for processing your personal data under the CCPA.

For example, we typically rely on:

If you are a resident in a territory where our legitimate interests mentioned above are not recognized as a lawful basis under applicable law, we will identify and use other appropriate lawful bases to process your personal data such as contractual necessity or your consent.

We will always ensure that the legal basis for processing your personal data is clearly identified and documented. We will also make sure that the processing of your personal data is fair, transparent, and proportionate to the purpose for which it is being collected and used.

If you have any questions or concerns about the legal basis for processing your personal data, please contact us using the details provided in the Contact Us Section of this Policy.
