Our visitors’ privacy is important to us, and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children on the Makeosity Inc. sites. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States’ Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, as well as data privacy laws in the United States and other applicable countries. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information.

The Makeosity Inc. sites collect only the information that is reasonably necessary for the activities available on the particular website. In general, we collect three types of information:

HOW WE STORE SUCH INFORMATION.

WHO WE ARE
The Makeosity Inc. sites are made available by Makeosity Inc. If you have any questions about our information handling practices, including our practices with respect to children’s personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.
I. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE.
We may request or collect certain information when you visit the Makeosity Inc. sites. However, visitors are required to share only the information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the particular activity.
A. Registration Information: The information required to register varies by Site, but may include: (a) birth date; (b) gender; (c) country; (d) state; (e) zip code; (f) user name and password; and (g) email address.
If the Site either is directed to children under 13 or has actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years old, the child may be asked to provide his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address. For certain countries, visitors or their parents/guardians will receive an activation email and must follow the procedures or otherwise agree to the terms within the activation email within a certain time period to activate the account; accounts not activated within that time period will be deleted.
Registration information is used to enable visitors to:
•take advantage of site offerings;
•respond to visitor’s requests for products, services, and information;
•serve appropriate material; and
•offer visitors special offers and promotions from Makeosity Inc. Sites.
II . Contests and Sweepstakes: The Makeosity Inc. sites may offer online contests and sweepstakes. To enter these contests and sweepstakes, you may be required to provide your first name and email address and/or additional information required for the management of the contest or sweepstakes. On sites that either are directed to children under 13 or where we have actual knowledge that a user is a child under 13, we may collect the child’s e-mail address to enter the child in the contest or sweepstakes, store the child’s email address for the duration of the sweepstakes, and use it for notification if he or she is the winner. For certain contests or sweepstakes on the sites, we may ask for the email address of the child’s parent or guardian to inform the parent or guardian of his or her child’s entry and give the parent or guardian the option to have the child’s entry deleted.
III. Interactive Features and Services: Some of the Makeosity Inc. sites offer interactive features and services, such as message boards, comment boxes, and member profile pages. For certain countries, on Makeosity Inc. sites that either are directed to children under 13 or have actual knowledge that a user is a child under 13 years old, we either will obtain the consent of the child’s parent/guardian before allowing the child to use these interactive features and services or will use reasonable technical measures to delete all or virtually all personal information from a child’s postings before they are made public and also delete the information from our records. We use the information collected through interactive features and services to enable you to participate in those features and services.
IV. Financial Information: We collect and use financial information, such as credit card numbers and security codes. Certain of the Makeosity Inc. sites provide pages and/or links to pages offering visitors who are of legal age to form a binding contract the opportunity to purchase consumer products . To do so, visitors need to provide contact, shipping, billing and credit information. These pages may be hosted and operated by a third party that is independent and separate from the Makeosity Inc. sites. This third party collects personal information about shop visitors and may share this information with us. We use this information to process the order and to send order confirmations via email, as well as to send information about products and services of interest and as otherwise required by law. Before providing information on these pages, we encourage you to review the posted privacy policies which govern the third party’s use of your information, as they may differ from ours.
V. DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES.
VI. Business Transfer
In the event that assets relating to one or more of the Makeosity Inc. sites are transferred or sold to another entity as a result of, for example, a corporate sale, merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, information collected at the Makeosity Inc. sites may be transferred to the acquiring company.
VII. With Your Consent
We may otherwise disclose your information pursuant to your consent.
VIII. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER.
IX SECURITY, STORAGE AND RETENTION OF INFORMATION.
The Makeosity Inc. sites maintain reasonable technical and organizational steps to help ensure that information collected is secure, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers and use of electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. The Makeosity Inc. sites conduct financial transactions via secured transmissions. We limit access to visitor’s information to employees and contractors who are authorized for the proper handling of the information, and any employee found violating our standards of security and confidentiality will be subject to our disciplinary processes. We also take reasonable steps to help make sure our third-party agents protect the security of your personal information. However, as with most Internet sites or services, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully access personal information through a number of means despite our efforts.
X. ACCESSING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION
Parents/guardians of children under the age of 13 can print out and mail or fax us a signed form that allows them to review any personally identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child’s personally identifiable information. You can download the form here [link]. We will take steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting personally identifiable information about a child and to ensure that the person is in fact the child’s parent or legal guardian.
