This Policy describes what information the Website collects from visitors (hereafter "you", "visitors" or "users") to our Website, how such information is used and stored, when such information may be disclosed to third parties, how information is protected and how users can control the use and disclosure of such information.
This Policy applies only to the Website and does not apply to any other information collected by SCG Power Rangers LLC or its affiliated entities through any other means. By accessing the Website, you are consenting to this Policy.
We are committed to providing a fun, safe and secure Website for people of all ages. Because some of the visitors to the Website are children, we also make every effort to ensure that the Website content is appropriate for them. In addition, we employ special measures to help children protect their privacy while online. We do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take steps to prevent children from posting contact information.
We are dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected on our Website and to helping our visitors learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring our Website.
I. The Information We Collect
There are three general categories of information collected from Website visitors:
(a) user information requested by the Website ("User Information"),
(b) information automatically collected by the Website from the electronic device (e.g., computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone) and Internet browser which the visitor is using to access the Website ("Computer Information"), and
(c) information collected by third-party advertisers, website analytics providers and other partners ("Third-Party Information") to whom we have granted access to the Website.
Here is some more detailed information regarding the three categories of information collected from Website visitors.
(a) User Information – For some activities on the Website, such as online polls, surveys and online games, we may ask visitors to provide information that is not personally identifiable such as the visitor's first name only, city or state of residence, age and gender. We will only ask, and visitors are only required to provide, user information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the particular activity.
If a user wishes to register a screen name and a password on the Website for purposes of tracking online game scores or for other reasons, we may collect such user's email address so that we can respond to requests for help with respect to forgotten screen names or passwords. The email address from the user will only be used only once and only for purposes of responding to the specific one-time request for assistance with respect to the screen name and/or password. If we have knowledge that any visitor under the age of thirteen (13) has provided an e-mail address for use in connection with a customer service or support inquiry, we will not store such email address in a retrievable form. Rather, we will use a "hash" or unique code generated from the e-mail address that will allow us on a one-time basis to respond to the customer service or support inquiry from the child under the age of thirteen (13).
If we conduct a contest or sweepstakes on our Website, we will collect email addresses from entrants so that we may contact the winners of the contest or sweepstakes. Any email addresses collected from entrants to a contest or sweepstakes will be used on a one-time basis. After the contest or sweepstakes prizing has been awarded, we will remove the email addresses collected with respect to the contest or sweepstakes from the applicable Website database.
Visitors can provide their email addresses to receive email newsletters and promotions from us and our business partners. If we have actual knowledge that a user asking to receive our email newsletters and promotions is a child under 13 years old, such user will be asked to provide his/her first name, email address and the email address of the user's parent/guardian. We will then send the child's parent or guardian a notification email advising of the child's request to receive by email newsletters or promotions on an ongoing basis and give the parent/guardian the option to have his/her child's information removed from our database. The child's parent/guardian may request at any time that we stop sending the child the newsletter(s) by following the "unsubscribe" instructions found at the end of any of the newsletter emails. Parents/guardians may also at any time review any personally identifiable information collected online about their child as more specifically discussed in Section VI below.
Our Website also contains certain interactive features and services, such as message boards, chat rooms, electronic mail services, comment boxes, messaging services, and member profile pages. If we have actual knowledge that a user asking to participate in such interactive features and services receive our email newsletters and promotions is a child under 13 years old, we either will obtain the consent of the child’s parent 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 such information from our records. We use the information collected through interactive features and services to enable you to participate in such features and services. We do not knowingly collect names and e-mail addresses from children under the age of thirteen (13) for these types of activities without notifying the parent via e-mail and giving the parent the option to remove their child's e-mail address from the applicable database for that activity.
Except as set forth above, we do not collect personal information1 on the Website from children under age thirteen (13).

When you come to our Website, we also may collect non-personally identifiable information from your electronic device and browser, such as the current Internet protocol address and the type of computer operating system you are using (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome), the domain name of the Internet service provider, your activities while visiting our Website, your activities while playing games or utilizing other services on the Website and the advertisements you have been shown.

IV. Limiting the Collection of Computer Information and Third-Party Information

Some third-parties serving advertising on our Website or otherwise having access to our Website may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), an industry self-regulatory program, which gives consumers greater control over their receipt of customized Internet ads that are based on their online behavior across different websites.
