Below is an overview of the data we may collect:

Unidentified and non-identifiable information that you provide during the registration process or that is collected through the use of our services ("non-personal data"). Non-personal data does not allow conclusions to be drawn about who provided it. Non-personal data that we collect primarily consists of technical and aggregated usage information.

Individually identifiable information, i.e., information that can identify you or be reasonably identified with effort ("personal data"). Personal data that we collect through our services may include information requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. When we combine personal data with non-personal data, they are treated as personal data as long as they remain combined.

To whom do we disclose this data?

We may disclose your data to our service providers to operate our services (e.g., data storage via third-party hosting services, technical support, etc.).

We may also disclose your data under the following circumstances: (i) to investigate, detect, prevent, or take action against illegal activities or misconduct; (ii) to establish or exercise our rights of defense; (iii) to protect our rights, property, or personal safety, as well as the safety of our users or the public; (iv) in the event of a change in control at our company or one of our affiliated companies (e.g., through merger, acquisition, or purchase of substantially all assets, among others); (v) to collect, store, and/or manage your data through authorized third-party providers (e.g., cloud service providers) to the extent reasonable for business purposes; (vi) to work jointly with third parties to improve your user experience. To avoid misunderstandings, we want to clarify that we may not transmit, disclose, or otherwise use non-personal data at our discretion for third parties.

Please note that our services enable social interactions (e.g., publicly posting content, information, and comments and chatting with other users). We advise against posting or sharing information that you do not wish to make public. When you upload content to our digital assets or provide it in the course of using a service, you do so at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users or members of the public who have access to your data or content. You acknowledge and hereby confirm that copies of your data may remain accessible on cached and archived pages or after third parties have made copies/stored your content, even after deletion.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit or access our services, we authorize third parties to use web beacons, cookies, pixel tags, scripts, and other technologies and analysis services ("tracking technologies"). These tracking technologies may allow third parties to automatically collect your data to enhance the navigation experience on our digital assets, optimize performance, ensure a tailored user experience, and for security and fraud prevention purposes.

We will not share your email address or other personal data with advertising companies or ad networks without your consent.

Where do we store the data?

Non-personal Data

Please note that our companies, as well as our trusted partners and service providers, are located around the world. For the purposes explained in this privacy policy, we store and process all non-personal data we collect in different jurisdictions.

Personal Data

Personal data may be maintained, processed, and stored in the United States, Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and other jurisdictions as necessary for the proper provision of our services and/or as legally required (as further explained below).

How long is the data retained?

Please note that we retain collected data as long as it is necessary for the provision of our services, compliance with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolution of disputes, and enforcement of our agreements.

We may correct, supplement, or delete incorrect or incomplete data at any time at our discretion.

How do we protect the data?

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services. Your data may be stored on secure servers behind a firewall, and secure HTTPS access is provided to most areas of its services.

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, publish, or otherwise provide to us or others.

For this reason, we ask you to establish secure passwords and not transmit confidential information to us or others if its disclosure could potentially harm you significantly or permanently. As email and instant messaging are not considered secure communication forms, we also ask you not to disclose confidential information through these communication channels.

How do we deal with minors?

Children can use our services. However, to access certain features, they may need to provide certain information. The collection of some data (including data collected through cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies) may occur automatically. If we knowingly collect, use, or disclose data collected from a child, we will provide notice and obtain parental consent in accordance with applicable law. A child's participation in an online activity will not be contingent on providing more contact information than is reasonably necessary for participation.

We may also use a parent's contact information to communicate about the child's activities in the services. Parents can view data we have collected from their child, request that we stop collecting further data from their child, and request that all data we have collected from their child be deleted.

Please contact us to view, update, or delete your child's data. To protect your child, we may request proof of your identity. We may deny you access to the data if we have doubts about your identity. Please note that certain data cannot be deleted due to other legal obligations.

We use your personal data only for the purposes set out in this privacy policy and only when we believe that:

The use of your personal data is necessary to fulfill or enter into a contract (e.g., to provide you with the services themselves or customer support or technical support);

The use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations, or

The use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided that this is done in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights).

As an EU resident, you have the right to:

Request confirmation of whether personal data concerning you is being processed and access to your stored personal data, as well as certain additional information;

Request the receipt of personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format;

Request the correction of your personal data that is stored by us;

Request the deletion of your personal data;

Please note, however, that these rights are not absolute and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have general questions about the personal data we collect and how it is used, please contact us as indicated below.

In providing our services, we may transfer data across borders to affiliated companies or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions worldwide. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

If you are located in the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA if we are satisfied that there is an adequate or comparable level of protection for personal data. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have appropriate contractual agreements with our third parties to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken to minimize the risk of unlawful use, alteration, deletion, loss, or theft of your personal data and that these third parties act in accordance with applicable laws at all times.
