Accordingly, on some of the Avatar network Services, children under 13 are not eligible to use certain features of the Services.

This Privacy Policy applies to all users, including both those who use the Avatar network Services without being registered with or subscribing to an Avatar network Service and those who have registered with or subscribed to an Avatar network Service. This Privacy Policy applies to the Avatar network's collection and use of your personal information (i.e., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address). It also describes generally the Avatar network's practices for handling non-personal information (for example, interests, demographics and services usage).


The Avatar network and our service providers collect the following information from and about you:

Registration Information is the information eligible users submit to register for an Avatar network Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, telephone number, gender, zip code and birthday.

Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that eligible users post to the Avatar network Services and the information that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.

Information from Social Media. If you have a social media account and are eligible to access or log-in to an Avatar network Service through a social media service or connect an Avatar network Service to a social media service, the information we collect may also include your user ID and/or user name associated with that social media service, any information or content you have permitted the social media service to share with us, such as your profile picture, email address or friends lists, and any information you have made public in connection with that social media service. When you access the Avatar network Services through social media services or when you connect an Avatar network Service to social media services, you are authorizing the Avatar network to collect, store, and use such information and content in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Avatar network Services, the Avatar network and its service providers may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Avatar network Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. \ If you access the Avatar network Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, or other transactional information for that device. We may also collect geolocation data (including precise location), from eligible users.

Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data. Avatar network's websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer or other device so the website or app can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Avatar network Services, such as pages you have visited, the video and other content you have viewed, search queries you have run and advertisements you have seen, in order to support the internal operations of the Avatar network Services.

Third parties that support the Avatar network Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing eligible users to share content or tracking aggregate Avatar network Services usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when eligible users use the Avatar network Services or third-party services. These third parties may also use these technologies, along with Activity Information they collect, to recognize eligible users across the devices they use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer. The Avatar network does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, including eligible users' choices with respect to them, see the section entitled "To deliver relevant advertisements," below.
