LINGOKIDS may disclose personal and non-personal data to its partners and contractors for purposes of analyzing usage of the Service, providing customer and technical support, managing and providing the Service (including managing advertisement serving, where and how permitted by law), customizing LINGOKIDS's communications, and to further develop the Service and other LINGOKIDS services and products. When LINGOKIDS shares this information, it is with vendors and other service providers who are engaged by or working with LINGOKIDS in connection with the operation of the services LINGOKIDS provides to the User and/or for analytics purposes which may require the reproduction and display of such information in an aggregated and anonymized manner such that will not in any way identify the User.
LINGOKIDS may use a parent's personal data provided in the parent section to send messages to the parent with informative and/or commercial content about LINGOKIDS's services or third party products and services LINGOKIDS thinks may be of interest to the User, such as new features and services, special offers and updated information. In addition, if a User has agreed to receive push notifications, and appropriate consent to receive them has been given, LINGOKIDS will use the data collected and share it with its vendors for the purpose of delivering approved push notifications.
If a User contacts LINGOKIDS by email, LINGOKIDS will use the personally identifiable email address information only to respond to the specific inquiry.
The Service may use "cookies" and other technologies such as pixel tags, locally shared objects, clear GIFs and web beacons. LINGOKIDS treats information collected by cookies and similar technologies as non-personal data.
Cookies: A "cookie" is a small bit of record-keeping information that websites often store on a user's computer. LINGOKIDS's cookies do not include personal data and are typically used to quickly identify a User's device and to "remember" the User. Users can disable cookies or set their browsers to alert them when cookies are being sent to their device; however, disabling cookies may affect their ability to use the Service.
Web Beacons and pixel tags: A "web beacon" or a "pixel tag" is an electronic image that allows LINGOKIDS to count Users who have visited certain pages or viewed certain advertisements. Web beacons, like cookies, do not include personal data. E-mails and other electronic communications LINGOKIDS sends to a User may contain pixel tags that enable LINGOKIDS to track a User's usage of the communication, including whether the communication was opened and/or what links were followed, if any.
LINGOKIDS may disclose a User's personal data to third parties as required by law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose a User or LINGOKIDS to legal liability. LINGOKIDS may also disclose a User's personal data to third parties when LINGOKIDS has a reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with LINGOKIDS's rights, property, operations, Users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or LINGOKIDS believes that such disclosure is necessary to protect LINGOKIDS's rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on LINGOKIDS. To the extent permitted by applicable law, LINGOKIDS will make reasonable efforts to notify affected Users of such disclosure through LINGOKIDS's website or in another reasonable manner.
When a parent discloses data about him or herself in the course of contributing user generated content or participating in support forums, community blogs or the like, the information disclosed is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. LINGOKIDS is not responsible for any personal data a User makes public in any of these forums.

LINGOKIDS is not liable for any such third party terms and conditions and their use of Users' personal data.
LINGOKIDS may in its discretion make available links through advertisements or otherwise enable Users to access third party products or services. LINGOKIDS is not responsible for the actions of such third parties, the content of their products or services, the use of information a User provides to them, or any products or services they may offer. LINGOKIDS's linking to those products or services does not constitute its sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such third parties.
