Information We collect about you. With regard to each of your visits to Our Website We may automatically collect the following information:

  • technical information, including your geographic location; the Internet protocol (“IP”) address used to connect your Device to the Internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform; and

Information We collect from children under 13 years of age. Any personal data that We collect from children under 13 years old is restricted to that necessary to enable the child to register an Account with Us temporarily and to provide Us with his Parent’s (or guardian’s) contact details for the purpose of obtaining Parental Consent. We will only collect any other personal information from children under 13 years old for the purpose of registration after the explicit and verifiable consent of the child’s Parent (or guardian) is received by Us. We will not ask a child to provide personal data about any third party (except for parents’ contact details for the purpose of obtaining Parental Consent) and We will not disclose or transfer personal data collected from children to third parties without the explicit and verifiable consent of the child’s Parent (or guardian).

Information We receive from public and third party sources. We work closely with third parties (including, for example, contractors, suppliers, business partners, technical, payment and advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers and others) and may receive information about you from them to verify your identity and eligibility for Our Services. We may combine this information with information you give to Us and information We collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out below.

Uses made of the information

We use information held about you in the following ways:

  • to notify you about changes to Our Services;
  • to provide you, or permit selected third parties to provide you, with information about services We feel may interest you. If you are an existing Registered User (and provided you are over 13 years old), We will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about services which are appropriate for your age group and which We think you may find interesting. Where We permit selected third parties to use your data, they will contact you by electronic means only if you are over 13 years old and only if you have consented to this.

  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of advertising We serve to you and others, and to deliver relevant advertising to you.

We will always seek Parental Consent if We use information obtained from children under 13 years of age and if Our use of information about a child is likely to result in:

  • disclosure of a child’s name and address to a third party;
  • use of a child’s contact details for marketing purposes;
