Poki is committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors who use our site and applications, including older users above the age of 13 (“General Users”) and younger users under the age of 13 (“Children Users”), together the “Users”. Poki adheres to the principles contained in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
All features on the Poki Site are available without the need for registration by Users. No personal data (such as email addresses and phone numbers) are collected. Poki will collect certain electronic data (such as the User’s IP address, cookies or device ID).
Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). The Poki Site may gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that data may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
When your computer or mobile device contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit the Poki Site), our web servers automatically collect usage information. Such usage information includes information about how our visitors use and navigate the Poki Site. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Site, and IP addresses.
We may use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to help administer the Poki Site, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis. More information about sharing information will follow in part 7.
If you have any questions concerning data collection on the Poki Site or a request to delete data collected (as applicable), please contact us at email@example.com.

Some of the third party games published on the Poki General Site and Poki Kids Site do link out to third party websites. Poki uses technology and people to monitor this, but it does not have full control over the third party games on the Poki Site.
Poki may share your persistent identifiers with third parties such as business partners under the following circumstances:
Security: We may release information about our Users, including IP address, when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing the Poki Site and applicable laws. We may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Poki, or any of our respective business partners, customers or others.
Aggregate Information: We may disclose non-identifying, aggregated user statistics to third parties for a variety of purposes, including describing our services to prospective partners and other third parties. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited this Poki Site during a specific time period or played a specific game on this Website.
We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children’s use of online activities regularly. This is why we created a separate age-appropriate experience for Children Users through the Poki Kids Site.
The Poki Kids Site supports and complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). No personal information is purposefully or knowingly collected from Children Users on the Poki Kids Site. There is no registration required for the Poki Kids Site and any advertising shown on the site is age-appropriate. The Poki Kids Site will not show behaviorally targeted ads or allow third parties to track the activity of Children Users for that purpose.
The Poki Kids Site may collect and use IP addresses and other persistent identifiers from Children Users, but only for purposes of supporting our internal operations, such as to help us:
If you are a Child User, you should only use the Poki Kids Site and only with the permission of a parent or legal guardian. If Poki ever becomes aware of the collection of personal information from a Child User, we will purge that information from our system immediately.
To learn more about COPPA, please reference this simple one-page informational guide from the kidSAFE Seal Program: http://www.kidsafeseal.com/knowaboutcoppa.html.
We will obtain prior parental consent for any changes we make if those changes affect Children Users in a way that requires parental consent under COPPA.
