Information automatically collected when you visit our Websites
When you visit our Website, we automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit such our Website. For example, we may receive and collect: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the date and time you access our Website; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Website. We use this information to monitor the usage of our Websites and as necessary for our business.

Information collected using cookies

Like many online retailers, we use cookies to recognize you as you use or return to our Websites. This is done so that we can personalize and enhance your browsing and shopping experience. "Cookies" are small files that we place on your computer's hard drive to collect information about your activities on our Website. Cookies help us to: (1) speed navigation, keep track of items in your shopping bag and provide you with content that is tailored to you; (2) remember information you gave us so that you do not have to re-enter it; (3) determine the effectiveness of some of our marketing efforts and communications; and (4) monitor the total number of visitors, pages viewed, and the total number of banners displayed.

Browsers are typically set to create cookies automatically. You can choose to have your browser notify you when cookies are being written to your computer or accessed, or you can disable cookies entirely. If you disable cookies, however, you will not be able to place items in our Website shopping bag, and therefore you will not be able to place an order with us online. Also, by not using cookies, some our Website features and services may not function properly.

Site Analytics: We work with a third party service provider to help us better understand how you use our Websites. This third party service provider will place cookies on your computer to collect information.

Information collected using pixel tags or clear GIFs

To help us understand the effectiveness of certain of our communications and marketing efforts, we may use "message format" and "message open" sensing technologies that use pixel tags or clear GIFs (which are also called web beacons). These technologies allow us to know if your e-mail program is able to accept HTML e-mails and, if it is, to: (1) send you e-mails in that format; and (2) determine if you have opened our e-mail messages. For this purpose, we tie the pixel tags and clear gifs to personally identifiable information.

9. other information about WANANN's Privacy Policy.

WANANN Policies for Minors, including Children under the age of 13.

Except as noted below with respect to Kid's Profiles: (i) our products and services are marketed for and directed towards purchase by adults or with the consent of adults; (ii) Individuals under the age of 18 ("Minors") are not permitted to use WANANN Websites or Retail Apps without the supervision of a parent or legal guardian; (iii) we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an online account or to post personal information on our Websites; and (iv) should we learn that someone under the age of 13 has provided any personal information to or on any of our Websites, we will remove that information as soon as possible.

Kid's Profiles
WANANN does not permit Minors to create a master account with WANANN or register a Device in his or her name. However, certain Devices do offer parents and legal guardians the opportunity to create a personal profile for their child, including children under the age of 13, to allow for a more personalized Device experience (a "Kid's Profile").

The creation of a Kid's Profile requires that the parent or legal guardian provide WANANN with verifiable consent to WANANN's collection of information in connection with the child's use of the Kid's Profile. Upon creation of a Kid's Profile, WANANN will validate credit card information already on file with us and e-mail the master account holder to give notice that we have received consent. If no credit card information is on file, or if the credit card is invalid, WANANN will not permit the creation of a Kid's Profile. In order for a parent or legal guardian of a child who is under the age of 13 to create a Kid's Profile on the Device, that child's parent or legal guardian must first create a master user account and authorize the creation of a Kid's Profile for the child who is under 13.

During the Kid's Profile setup process, WANANN will collect the first name or nickname and month and year of birth of your child. This information will be used to tailor the Device content experience and/or suggest books and other content that might be of interest to you and your child. You may enable your child to browse and on our Websites. If you do so, WANANN may collect information regarding items your child browses and/or purchases in order to make our services more interesting and useful to you. WANANN may share the information it collects about your child with its affiliated companies to help to ensure that you have a superior shopping or browsing experience no matter where you choose to shop or browse within WANANN. WANANN may also share the information it collects about your child with third party service providers WANANN may engage to assist with services related to the Device and our Websites. These third party service providers are obligated to keep your information and your child's information confidential and must use the information only in connection with providing services to WANANN. WANANN may collect and store this information on our servers for the purpose of providing a seamless user experience, but WANANN will not use such information for any other purpose without your consent.

If you are a parent or guardian believes your child under the age of 13 has submitted personal information or other information to WANANN without your consent, please contact post@wanann.com. Once WANANN verifies that you are the parent or legal guardian, at your request, WANANN will promptly provide to you information regarding what, if any, personal information WANANN has collected about your child and how it has been used or shared. WANANN will, at your request, remove personal information about your child from its database and instruct our affiliates and third party partners to do the same. WANANN is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the collection, storage and use of personal information of children under the age of 13, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.

Your access rights and updates to your information
You have the right to ask us not to use your personal information for direct marketing purposes. You also have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies rectified. Please note that, as permitted by law, we may charge a nominal fee for information requests and may require you to prove your identity. Following a request, we will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you in our files. Please address written requests and questions about this to post@wanann.com. We will respond to all access requests within 30 days.

Third Party Applications: We are not responsible for third party applications you may download and install on your Devices. While WANANN takes every effort to ensure that applications offered through our Application Stores meet compatibility and safety testing criteria, this Privacy Policy does not cover any data collection, use, or sharing by those applications, unless the provider of an application has entered into a separate agreement with us as a business partner to share your personal information. In such a case, we would require our business partner to disclose their data collection and sharing practices with you, and obtain your prior affirmative consent. Our use of any shared data under such an agreement would then be governed by our privacy policy. All other collection of personal information by a third party application provider shall be subject to the terms of such provider's privacy policy.

Third Party Websites and Web-Tracking
We may partner with third party distributors of advertisements to deliver advertisements about our products and services when you visit other websites across the Internet. These distributors of advertisements may place or access cookies on your computer which help us provide you with advertisements that are customized to your particular product preferences and improve the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Please understand that WANANN does not control these third party cookies, and you should check the privacy policy of the Internet advertising company or advertiser to see whether and how it uses cookies.

Whenever you click on links and banners on any our Website that take you to a third party website, you will be subject to the third party's privacy policies, not WANANN's. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by WANANN.

In addition, our website includes links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of WANANN. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any website you visit.

Safe Harbor
If you have questions or complaints regarding our privacy policy or practices, please contact us at post@wanann.com.

WANANN complies with the U.S. - E.U. Safe Harbor framework and the U.S. - Swiss Safe Harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from, respectively, European Union member countries and Switzerland.
