Some browsers have a ‘do not track’ feature that lets you tell web sites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so our Site is not currently designed to respond to those signals.
Do You Love JAKKS But Are Under 13? Get Parental Consent!
Note that we do not intentionally collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you can look at our websites, but you should not make a purchase, register, or submit personal information to us without prior parental consent.
All of the general provisions of this Policy are equally applicable to children under the age of 13 years old, and JAKKS also complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") and guidelines provided by the Children's Advertising Review Unit of the Advertising Self-Regulatory Council. Under COPPA we must inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under 13. Except for limited exceptions provided by COPPA, if a child is under the age of 13, the child's parent or legal guardian must consent before the child can provide certain personal information to JAKKS online.
If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13, and you believe your child has provided personal information to our Site that you would like us to delete, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents can also refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from or pertaining to their child.
What if JAKKS Accidentally Collects a Child’s Data?
If JAKKS discovers that it has unintentionally collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 in a way that does not meet COPPA requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately ask for parent or guardian consent for such collection.
Why Does JAKKS Collect Personal Information From Children, After Receiving Parental Consent?
Generally, children can use many aspects of the Site without disclosing any personal information. However, in some instances it is necessary to collect such information so children may participate in various special activities such as contests, sweepstakes, games, events, and clubs. We need the information in order to ensure the integrity and security of the activity and to distribute any prizes or other benefits.
What Information Is Collected From Children, After Receiving Parental Consent?
When it becomes necessary to collect personal information from kids so that they may participate in an online activity, generally JAKKS will request the child's first name only, date of birth, and the parent's email address. We collect the date of birth to determine the child's age and the parent's email address so that we can contact the parent and obtain the consent and information described below. In certain limited situations allowed by COPPA (i.e., sweepstakes), it may be necessary to collect the child's email address or other information. We will not collect more personal information from a child online than is reasonably necessary, and is consented to by his/her parent, for the child to participate in the applicable online activity.
How Does JAKKS Collect and Use Children’s Information, After Receiving Parental Consent?
Generally, JAKKS collects information online to enhance online experiences and bring you and your children fun products and services, which includes, but are not limited to: a) providing information about products, promotions, and services available from JAKKS as described below; b) providing customer support and warranty information for JAKKS’ products; c) personalizing experiences and making special offers and opportunities available; d) allowing participation in contests, sweepstakes, games, events, clubs, and other promotions, and otherwise registering for online activities; e) making online shopping available; f) providing a means to contact us with questions or comments; g) allowing participation in online surveys; h) detecting, investigating, and preventing activities that may violate our policies or be illegal.
How Can Parents Access, Change or Delete Personally Identifiable Information about Their Children?
At any time parents can access the personal information we have already collected from or pertaining to their child and request that we change or delete such information. Parents can also refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from or pertaining to their child. If a parent wishes to access, change, delete, or prohibit the collection of such information, (s)he must contact JAKKS using one of the methods described below in the Contact Us section. In contacting JAKKS, the parent must provide the child’s full name and the parent's email address so that we can better address the inquiry or request.
How Does JAKKS Protect Your Information?
We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously and maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help protect your personal information from loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We adopt and implement appropriate and reasonable security practices regarding the collection, storage and processing of your information. We also put in place physical safeguards such as limited employee access and confidentiality agreements with employees and contractors. Moreover, JAKKS is in the process of becoming compliant with Privacy Shield certification. While we strive to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, no security measure is ever perfect and JAKKS cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third party hackers from illegally obtaining this information.
To further ensure the security of your personal information, you should always provide personal information over a secure connection and never share your personal or account information with anyone or in any unsolicited phone call or email. You can check the existence of a secure connection in one of two ways:
- Look at the URL in your web browser. Whenever you are connected to a secure server, that connection will be represented in the URL as “https” rather than “http.”
- Look at your web browser. You have an SSL connection if you see a closed lock or a solid key. If you click on this image, a small pop-up window displaying website security information will appear.
How Does JAKKS Protect The International Transfer, Storage and Processing Of Your Information?
Because JAKKS is an international company, we transfer your personal information to individual subsidiaries of JAKKS or to third parties in locations around the world for the purposes set forth in this Policy. Please be aware that the data protection laws in some of these countries may not offer the same level of protection as those in your country of residence. Prior to transferring any of your information in this way, JAKKS will take reasonable steps to adequately protect your personal information by remaining compliant with the European Union’s Global Data Processing Regulation (“GDPR”) and JAKKS’ pending Privacy Shield certification. As such, this Policy and its assurances, and JAKKS’ pending Privacy Shield certification apply to all JAKKS’ subsidiaries.
JAKKS complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. JAKKS has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. Further, JAKKS commits to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by such authorities with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU in the context of the employment relationship. Additionally, JAKKS remains subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission.

How Long Does JAKKS Retain Your Information?
JAKKS keeps your personal information only as long as your account is active or as long as is needed to provide you with access and enjoyment of this Site, for our legitimate business interests and to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations. Where we no longer need your information for any of the above reasons, or are not required to retain it, we will delete it. If you want to cancel your account or want JAKKS to delete your personal information, JAKKS will do so and will only keep information that we are required to maintain for legal reasons.
JAKKS does not currently use automated decision-making as it relates to your personal information. However, if JAKKS does begin to use automated decision-making, you have the right to object to processing of your information in such a manner, where the decision-making process does not involve a human, only when that decision-making affects you legally or significantly (i.e., a decision that affects your civil rights, employment or rights under a contract).
