You're now leaving the kids' section of popples.com. The page you are navigating to is for parents only.
We take the privacy of every child seriously. We do not collect or store any Personal Information (defined below) about visitors to our Service (hereafter "you", "visitors" or "users"), except as permitted by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") and as more fully set forth in this Policy.
This Policy applies only to the Service and does not apply to any other service operated by us or any affiliated company, or to data we collect offline except to the extent it is combined with your Personal Information we collect via the Service.
You should read this entire Policy, but here is a partial list of some of the key topics. Any capitalized terms have the meanings given to them where defined in the Policy.
We ask you for, and use technologies detect information about you, and third parties may also do so in connection with our Services.
We do not monitor or take any action with respect to so-called browser do not track signals. We comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and provide parents with certain additional controls.
1. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are three general categories of information collected from Service visitors:
User information requested by the Service ("User Information"),
Information collected by the Service from the electronic device (e.g., computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone) and Internet browser which the visitor is using to access the Service ("Computer Information"), and
Information collected by third-party advertisers, Service analytics providers and other partners ("Third-Party Information") to whom we have granted access to the Service.
Under certain circumstances, each type may include personal information as defined by COPPA ("Personal Information"). We collect User Information, Computer Information and Personal Information as permitted by COPPA and as may be otherwise limited by this Policy. We do not collect Personal Information except as permitted by COPPA.
Here is some more detailed information regarding the three categories of information collected from Service visitors, and our collection practices:
1. Do we require you to register to use the Service?
Registration for the Service is not required. Visitors can use and enjoy the Service without registration. However, we do provide the option of registering. If a Child (defined below) chooses to register on the Service, we ask for a limited amount of information, such as a screen name and password. Once a Child is registered, we use this information to allow the Child to save avatars created on the Service, earn points, and "tag" content. We may also store a history of the last things that a registered user has viewed so that the visitor can easily return to these Service locations. We will not collect Personal Information on the Service from children under age thirteen (13) ("Child" or "Children") except as may be permitted by COPPA.
We may from time to time make available via the Service specially designated sections for Grown-ups. In such specially designated areas, we may collect Personal Information or other information, including through registration, and in doing so we do not intend to collect Personal Information from Children.
What types of community or social features do we offer on our Service and how do we keep these areas safe?
The Service does not allow for open messaging between its users, nor does it allow for the use of third party social networks on children's portions of the Service, but third party social media tools and other communications functionality for parents may be available in the Grown-ups section. While the Service does allow its users to "rate" content, this tool does not make Personal Information publicly available. We do not typically allow Children to post user-generated content ("UGC") to the Service, and any UGC submission programs that may be available via the Service will be designed to protect children's privacy as required by COPPA.
Parents may want to consider commercially available parental control protections and child protection software options to limit what minors can access online and/or monitor their minor children's online activities. Examples include: www.netnanny.com; www.webwatcher.com and www.sentrypc.com. We do not endorse these or other services and are not responsible for them.
1. Do we offer other features on our Service that ask you to provide information?
We may ask our users to provide us with information to help improve the overall experience of the Service. We may do so by providing users with the opportunity to send us feedback and suggestions through a widget form. We do not ask for any contact information on this form. We may provide users the ability to contact us by e-mail, such as for customer service. Unless this generates from the Grown-up section of the Service, we will limit use of the user's e-mail to a one-time response to an inquiry consistent with COPPA.
Additionally, on occasion, we may run promotions or polls sponsored by us and/or by third-party partners and/or advertisers or provide a way for users to receive information or materials from us or them (each a "Promotion"). This will be done in compliance with COPPA. For instance, if we conduct a contest or sweepstakes on our Service, we will typically collect email addresses from entrants so that we may contact them regarding the promotion and such email addresses collected from entrants to a contest or sweepstakes may be used on a one-time basis such as to notify the winners. We will thereafter remove the email addresses collected for the contest or sweepstakes from the applicable Service database. Or, we may obtain an e-mail address for multiple communications regarding a Promotion, but if we do we will also obtain the parent's e- mail and give the parent the ability to unsubscribe as required by COPPA.
We may offer Children the ability to send an e-mail to a friend. If we do, we will do so consistent with COPPA to limit prevent open communication and so as not to include the sender's full name or their online contact information. The friend's e-mail will only be used to send that message.
If we collect and store any other Personal Information from Children, we will do so consistent with COPPA and this Policy, including obtaining such parental permission as may be required by COPPA.
1. Do we collect information from you using Cookies or other web technologies?
The Service uses third-party analytics software to provide us with information regarding the usage of the Service, including things such as how many people visit the Service on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, what Service content or features our visitors use and the general geographic locations of our users. We provide access to our Service to third party analytics providers, such as Google Analytics. These third parties assist us in measuring, analyzing and improving the internal operations of the Service. These third parties gather information in the aggregate with respect to visitors to the Service, the pages of the Service and advertisements which are viewed by the visitors, and other information with respect to the Internet activities of visitors. These analytics providers do not collect contact information such as e-mail address. Some of these third parties offer you choices regarding what they do collect and how they use that data. For Google's options visit www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacyand see their opt- out browser plug-in athttps://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Third-party advertising networks and business partners may also place advertisements on the Service and may track the responses to these advertisements. These third- parties may view, edit or place Cookies, web beacons or similar technologies to help present advertisements, and to help measure and research the advertisements' effectiveness. We do not permit any third party advertisers to collect your personal contact information (e.g., e-mail address) via our Service, except with notice and your consent (e.g., you request information). We do, however, permit third-party advertisers to track certain other information for operational purposes, such as Computer Information and device identifier related to the source of users who click on the third party advertisements and go to such advertiser 's site.
For more on ads on our Service, see the next section.
2. ADVERTISEMENTS AND E-COMMERCE
Our Service contains advertisements which we review, or otherwise make efforts to limit, for appropriateness for our audience. We will further explicitly label all advertising on the Service, other than on the Grown-up section, to help Children understand they are viewing advertisements. We do not permit behavioral advertising on the children's portions of the Service, though we may serve ads based on context of what the viewer is doing on our Service. If we
allow behavioral advertising on Grown-up portions of the Service, there will be a notice there explaining your opt-out options.
We do not currently offer e-commerce on the Service. However, we may link to third party e- commerce sites from the Grown-up's section. We are not responsible for those sites or your transactions with them.
Our Service also may contain other links to other services, including those of sponsors and advertisers. When you click on these third party links on the Service, you will be notified that you are leaving our Service. If you are accessing the link from other than the Grown-up section, you will need to click again to choose to go to the service of the third-party.
Please understand that our Policy does not apply to third party services. These third-party services may follow different practices and procedures with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information obtained from those persons visiting their services. We, therefore, encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of service of such third-party services.
3. COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
We and our third party service providers and/or business partners may also use other tracking technologies such as "Web beacons" or clear .gifs, also treated as Cookies by this Policy. These are small pieces of computer code placed on a web page to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver cookies to the browsers of visitors viewing that page. We, our third party service providers and/or our partners may use web beacons on our Service from time to time to help present advertisements and measure their effectiveness.
By visiting our Service, you acknowledge, and agree that you are giving us your consent to track your activities using Cookies (including cookies, web beacons and other technologies) to the extent permitted by COPPA. You can change your privacy preferences regarding the use of

We may provide these vendors with access to your information, including certain Personal Information, to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us, however, for Personal Information of Children, if we do, we will require that they restrict its use as required by COPPA (e.g., use for our and their internal operations purposes as permitted by COPPA).

6. CHILDREN'S PRIVACY AND PARENTAL REVIEW AND CONTROL
We understand the importance of protecting children's privacy in the interactive world and we follow the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") regarding children under the age of thirteen (13) ("Child" or "Children") and the portions of our Service directed to them. For more information on COPPA and how it protects Children's Privacy see: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online

Also, parents always have the option to review their Child's account with the Service ("Account"), disable or cancel the Account, correct factual errors in any information contained in the Account or request the deletion of any information contained in the Account (subject to our reasonable business records needs consistent with COPPA). Parents interested in accessing the Account for the purposes outlined above should contact us using the methods described in the following "Contact us" section, Section 7 below.

4. BINDING ARBITRATION AND NO CLASS ACTIONS
Subject to our right to seek provisional remedies or injunctive relief is provided below, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any related agreement, their enforcement or interpretation, or because of an alleged breach, default or misrepresentation in connection with any of their provisions, shall be determined by binding arbitration. The arbitration proceedings shall be held and conducted by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (the "JAMS Rules"), as modified by this Agreement. Such arbitration shall occur in Los Angeles, California and may be initiated by any party in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The demand for arbitration shall be made by any party hereto within a reasonable time after the claim, dispute or other matter in question has arisen, and in any event shall not be made after the date when institution of legal proceeding, based on such claim, dispute or other matter in question, would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The arbitrator shall render a decision within twenty (20) days after the conclusion of the hearing(s). In reaching a decision, the arbitrator shall have no authority to change, extend, modify or suspend any of the terms of this Agreement, or to grant an award or remedy any greater than would be available from a court under the statutory or common law theory asserted. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law (and the law of remedies, if applicable) of California or federal law, or both, as applicable to the claim(s) asserted. It is the arbitrator's responsibility to allocate all costs and expenses of the arbitration (including legal and accounting fees and expenses of the respective parties) to the parties in the proportions that
reflect their relative success on the merits (including the successful assertion of any defenses). The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion that includes the factual and legal basis for any decision and award. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek, from a court of competent jurisdiction, provisional remedies or injunctive relief in order to protect our intellectual property rights and to support our rights and remedies hereunder without waiving any right to arbitration.
Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. There shall be no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated or otherwise brought on a class action basis or on any basis involving disputes brought to a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate will not apply unless we consent to arbitrate.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration and class
action waiver provisions are for the court to decide. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement or the
You agree to indemnify and hold us, our Providers, and our and their subsidiaries, affiliates, and respective officers, agents, partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of: (i) your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement ; (ii) your breach of this Agreement; (iii) any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement; and (iv) any User Content that you post on or through the Service or otherwise submit to us.
This Agreement is accepted upon your use of the Service. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Service.

The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. This Agreement operates to the fullest extent permitted by law.
This Agreement (including any applicable Additional Terms), in the form posted at the time of your use of the applicable services to which it applies, shall govern such use (including transactions entered during such use). AS OUR SERVICE EVOLVES, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH WE OFFER THE SERVICE MAY PROSPECTIVELY BE
MODIFIED AND WE MAY CEASE OFFERING THE SERVICE UNDER THE TERMS OR APPLICABLE ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR WHICH THEY WERE PREVIOUSLY OFFERED. ACCORDINGLY, EACH TIME YOU SIGN IN TO OR OTHERWISE USE THE SERVICE YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH US ON THE THEN APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF NEW TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THE SERVICE (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER OF NOTICE WHICH WE ELECT), AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR GOING FORWARD AGREEMENT TO THE NEW TERMS FOR YOUR NEW USE AND TRANSACTIONS. Therefore, you should review the posted terms each time you use the Service (at least prior to each transaction or submission). Any new terms or Additional Terms will be effective as to new use and transactions as of the time that we post them, or such later date as may be specified in them or in other notice to you. However, the terms (and any applicable Additional Terms) that applied when you previously used the Service will continue to apply to such prior use and any specific term to which we previously committed to apply those terms (if applicable) (i.e., changes and additions are prospective only) unless mutually agreed. In the event any notice to you of new, revised or additional terms is determined by a tribunal to be insufficient, the prior agreement shall continue until sufficient notice to establish a new agreement occurs. You should frequently check the home page, your account page (if applicable), and the e-mail you associated with your account (if applicable) for notices, all of which you agree are reasonable manners of providing you notice. You can reject any new, revised or additional terms by discontinuing use of the Service.
