When a child accesses and interacts with the Company Services, we may collect certain information automatically about those visits. The information we collect includes the type of computer operating system, IP address and/or mobile device identifier, web browser type, content viewed, the frequency with which the child visits various parts of our sites or applications, information regarding the online or mobile service provider, and cookie ID. We do not collect registration information from children on this site.
Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology, including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps and other services send this data to a child’s browser when he or she first requests a web page and then stores the data on the child’s computer so the website can access the information when the child makes subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about a child’s usage of the Company Services, such as pages visited, content viewed, search queries run and contextual advertisements served. We only use these types of information to support the internal operations of the Company Services.
Third parties that support the Company Services by serving contextual advertisements or providing services, such as maintaining and analyzing the functioning of the Company Services, assisting in network communications, stability of the Company Services, hosting, content delivery, and authentication may also use these technologies to collect similar information; their collection and use of such information only is to support the internal operations of the Company Services.

We use the information we collect from children for these additional purposes:

If Company sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, Company may transfer children’s information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
