Our Policies Concerning Children’s Personally Identifiable Information
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from someone we know to be a child under the age of thirteen (13) without prior parental consent. IF YOU ARE 13 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER, PLAYDEK REQUESTS THAT YOU NOT SUBMIT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THE SERVICES OR TO PLAYDEK. Our websites and application contain features that may be attractive to children; therefore, children should not be granted access to any passwords or use of the parent or guardian’s account without direct monitoring and supervision by the parent or guardian. Playdek is not responsible for any unauthorized use of accounts, and we encourage everyone to protect their passwords and not disclose them to anyone.

How Your Personally Identifiable Information Is Protected from Misuse
The security of your personally identifiable information is important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures to attempt to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access and improper use. However, please understand that no security measure is perfect or impenetrable and therefore we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personally identifiable information. We also protect your personally identifiable information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Bulletin Boards and Chat Areas
Users of the Services are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on public forums, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number), as well as other personal ideas, photographs, writings, music, comments, suggestions and other materials (collectively “User Content”) on the bulletin boards, blogs, or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
Please note that Playdek does not control who will have access to the information that you choose to make public, and cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy or keep it secure. Playdek is not responsible for the privacy or security of any information that you make publicly available on through the Services or what others do with information you share with them on the Services. We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any User Content that you disclose or receive from third parties through the Services.
