Privacy Protection for Children Using the Internet

Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on the Web site or Software or otherwise provide Products to those persons we actually know are under the age of thirteen (13) nor is any part of the Web site or Software targeted to attract anyone under the age of thirteen (13). We request that all users of the Web site, Products, and/or Software who are under the age of thirteen (13) not disclose or provide any personally-identifiable information. If we discover that a child under thirteen (13) has provided us with personally-identifiable information, we will delete that child’s personally-identifiable information from our records.

Data Security

We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally-identifiable information that we collect; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. We utilize the security services of Parse for physical and environmental security as well as data and system security and backup. More information regarding Parse may be found at https://parse.com/about/security. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk. Please note, that non-encrypted communication using email is not secure. Thus, we cannot guarantee data security in email communication and, therefore, recommend using physical mail for confidential information.

International Transfer

We operate globally so it is necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States where many of our central databases operate.
