  1. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Pixel does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If Pixel learns that Pixel has inadvertently gathered personal data from children under 13 years of age, Pixel will take reasonable measures to promptly delete such personal data from Pixel ’s records.

Pixel understands the need to provide extra privacy protections to users who are children. To that end, features and services such as social networking plug-ins, behaviourally targeted advertising, and collection of data for the purpose of building user profiles are not available to users under 13. Pixel also does not allow our third-party partners who engage in such practices to access personally identifiable data from users under 13.

Pixel and its partners do collect non-personally identifiable data from children. This includes, for example, collection of IP-based geolocation data to ensure that the product, service or features served comply with applicable laws of that nation.

Pixel and its partners also collect data to assess general information about the use of products, such as the number of visitors to our sites and services and which sections of a site or service are popular. Pixel also uses this data to provide contextually-relevant advertising to users, to prevent users from seeing the same ad repeatedly, and to allow users to personalize their experience on the site or service (for example, to save a high score in a game). Pixel and its partners may also use cookies, pixels, hardware-based identifiers, Operating System-based identifiers, and software-set identifiers, to manage and measure the performance of advertising.

Please note that Pixel’s partners may have their own policies related to tracking technologies for analytics and ad-serving purposes. While Pixel requires that companies comply with Pixel’s privacy policy before Pixel allows those companies to access our sites and services, Pixel does not actually control third-party data collection and use. Pixel encourages parents to review the list of operators below and to become familiar with those party’s policies and practices.

If you have additional questions about Pixel’s Privacy Practices related to children under the age of 13, please contact us using the information in section 8.
