This document describes the policies and practices of Gizmeon, Inc. (“Company” or“We”) as related to information (as defined herein). This policy describes the types of information we may collect and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This policy applies to information we collect:

  • On our website or through our products and services.
  • In email, text, and other electronic messages between individuals and us.
  • From third parties (“Partners”).
  • During the provision of our services on behalf of our Partners.

It does not apply to information collected by:

  • Us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by Company or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); 

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding information and how we will treat it. If a user does not agree with our policies and practices, that user’s choice is not to use our services (either directly or by interfacing through services provided by Partners). By accessing or using our services, each user agrees to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy). Any continued use of this our products and services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates. 

Children Under the Age of 13

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this policy, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information. This section only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements the other provisions of this privacy policy. Only the other provisions of this privacy policy apply to teens and adults. 

Children can access many parts of our products and services and their content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users or require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them. In addition, we use certain technologies, (as otherwise stated in this policy), to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use our products and services.

For services intended for children, we obtain verifiable parental consent related to those users (either directly or as indicated by our Partners directing those child users). Adults are not allowed to access any children-directed services. At sign-up, a child (or parent, on behalf of a child) must provide us with the following information to register with our products or services: a selected randomly generated username for the child and a parent’s email address. We may request additional information from children, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it. We may also combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about parents or children that we collect online (see How We Use Information and Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies).

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary. We support do not track and personal information obfuscation in compliance with COPPA, and do not knowingly store anything traceable or identifiable are stored on COPPA required clients.

At any time, parents or children may review a child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information. 

Parents and children can review, change, or delete a child’s personal information by:

  • Logging into that child’s account and visiting his or her account profile page.
  • Sending us an email at info@gizmeon.com. To protect privacy and security, we may require a requester to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify identity before we provide any information or make corrections.

A list of all operators that may collect or maintain personal information from children through our products or services will be provided upon written to info@gizmeon.com. Please direct inquiries about any operator’s privacy practices and use of children’s information to the operator at its contact information provided on their website.

To the extent that certain products or services are not directed to children, we obtain confirmation from the user that they are not a child. We do not knowingly collect or obtain information from children related to these products and services or through any other means besides our products or services not directed to children. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child without verification of parental consent related to these products and services, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child in relation to these services, please email us at info@gizmeon.com.
