What Information Do We Collect?
Active Collection: We collect information in various ways when the Service is being used. For example, we collect parental email in order to obtain parental consent and create a parent account, which allows you to connect your Smart Toy to Wi-Fi. If you choose to not register an account, your Smart Toy will still be functional, but it will not receive automatic updates with new content. We may also collect other information you directly provide to us, such as when you send us an email, fill out a form, provide or request information, or otherwise submit information to or through the Service. Such information may include personal information such as your name, email, and telephone number. In addition, from time to time we may collect demographic and personal information you provide in connection with your participation in surveys, sweepstakes, contests, games, offers, and other activities in connection with the Service.
Passive Collection: When the Service is being used, some information is also automatically collected. For example, we may automatically collect certain information such as device model and name, operating system and version, the browser type, mobile network information, preferred language, time zone, and activity on the Service.

Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only and it is not treated as personal information under this Policy.
