1- HOW WE PROTECT THE ONLINE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN UNDER 13
privacy by instructing them to never provide any personal information (full name, email address, home address, phone number, etc.) without your permission.
ColorGameStudio follows the principles of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), a U.S. law designed to protect the online privacy of children, in our online services and Apps
that are directed to children. If you would like to learn more about COPPA, you can refer to the “Children’s Privacy” section of the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
were to collect and store personal information from children, we would obtain the consent of a parent or legal guardian before such collection, unless the collection of information falls within an exception that
is permitted under COPPA.
Parents who have registered their child to the Budge Playgroup Program should understand that information, including but not limited to a child's first name, last name's initial, country of residence and behavioral
activity within the beta version of the app tested, may be collected by ColorGameStudio. In addition, any feedback provided by beta testers may be used to make adjustments to and improve upon ColorGameStudio products
including but not limited to the gameplay, app flow, story, art and animation.
In our Apps directed to children users, we collect information which includes persistent identifiers such as a device identifier (“device ID”) or an Internet Protocol address (“IP address”).
This information is collected solely for the purpose of providing functionality and support for our internal operations and optimizing our users’ game experience.
The Apps may contain advertisements about ColorGameStudio or third party products and services. In any case, ColorGameStudio does not permit behaviorally-targeted advertising to children in the Apps or in the
Platforms where we have actual knowledge that the user is under the age of 13.
If you believe that we may have unintentionally collected your child’s personal information without your prior consent, you may contact ColorGameStudio’ Chief Privacy Officer:

previous section, ColorGameStudio does not knowingly collect any personal information from children outside of the information required for the support of internal operations. ColorGameStudio may collect personal
information that parents, legal guardians or persons over 13 voluntarily provide on the Platforms. Please note that some applications allow the user to record photo/audio/videos locally on your device. These photos/audio/videos
are never shared with ColorGameStudio nor with other users of the app nor are they shared with any unaffiliated third party companies. The second type of information is non-personal information which doesn’t directly

number or social insurance number) of contest prize winners and, to the extent required to process any payment, your credit card information. In addition, we may collect demographic information such as gender, zip
