The App processes data for the purpose of (i) operating and improving the service and (ii) to follow up on abuse reports and cooperate with law enforcement. We do not sell or otherwise distribute your personal data to third parties and will not send you any commercial proposals unless expressly authorized to do so. To evaluate the use of our service as well as for statistical purposes, only anonymised data shall be used.
User Provided Information
The App obtains the information you provide when you download and register within the App. Some information is requested through the registration process as mandatory in order to be able to use the basic features of the App. Further information shall be requested as optional upon registration or after parent verification, in order to allow you to use some of the features offered by the App. The registration process is currently intended for and directed to parents/grown-ups within the parent section of the App, and utilizes COPPA-compliant procedures to allow for the collection of certain account information from parents with verification of a parent email address. When you register with us and use the App, you generally provide (a) your name, date of birth, gender, email address, age, user name, password and other registration information; (b) information you provide us when you contact us for help. We may also use the information you provided us to contact your from time to time to provide you with important information, required notices and, with your prior consent expressed during registration, marketing promotions.
In addition, the App may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile devices unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the App. The App may access certain device information and/or components automatically. This collection is only for the purpose of providing the services within the App you choose to use. This information is not linked to personal information about the user. A push notification token will be used to send push notifications to your mobile device with updates and suggestions upon request (e.g. through scanning QR codes) or automatically (e.g. by mean of audio watermarks). These notifications would only be activated from the parent section of the App and directed to parents.
This App does not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device.
We may eventually disclose and transfer your Personal Data to service providers engaged by us to assist us with providing you with our services (including but not limited to data entry, database management, promotions, products and services alerts, delivery services and membership authentication and verification services) ("Service Providers"). These Service Providers are under a duty of confidentiality to us and are only permitted to use your Personal Data in connection with the purposes specified above, and not for their own purposes (including direct marketing). On a normal basis, only aggregated, anonymized data is periodically transmitted to external services to help us improve the App and our service. We will share your information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.
We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:
- as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;
- with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.
- If Ferrero is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site or within the App of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.
To help us provide a better user experience and develop a better and more stable app, we work with analytics companies (Google Analytics, Answers, Crashalytics); we may so collect anonymous and aggregated data. No identifying information is shared with any third party.
We do not have any advertising in our App. At times, we may promote the App via internet advertising. If you click on such an advertisement on an external web site and navigate directly to the iTunes App Store or other platform, non-identifying information such as your phone's device ID may be sent to the advertising network, so that they and we may track the effectiveness (i.e., conversions) of our advertising. In addition to conversion events, it might also be used for frequency capping, estimating the number of unique users, debugging, or security and fraud detection. When you use Magic Kinder, a unique ID (which varies by device manufacturer and operating system) is read from or associated with your device to be used as an anonymous identifier for analytics and performance purposes. We don't store the ID, or share the ID or other unique information collected or used by the app with third parties, except for service providers whose analytics product generates this ID to track and analyze the performance of our App. We do not use information gathered within the App to serve you targeted advertisements.
Information security is important to Ferrero and we are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We have established physical, electronic, managerial and procedural safeguards to protect the information we collect, process and maintain. These safeguards are regularly reviewed to protect against unauthorized access, disclosure and improper processing of your information, and to maintain the accuracy and integrity of that data. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our App. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches. For technical and operational reasons, personal data can be transferred through servers which are located outside the European Union, where the European data protection rules are not applicable. Privacy regulations outside the EU might not provide the same high level of protection.
