Third Party Applications
Information Relating to Children
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was passed by the U.S. Congress in November 1998. COPPA provides parents with specific rights regarding their children's privacy. For additional information and resources on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/. The Wachanga Website, Wachanga Apps and Services are not directed at children under 13 years of age and, therefore, COPPA does not apply. However, we recognize that children under the age of 13 may access the Wachanga Website, Wachanga Apps and Services. The collection of information from such users is covered above. Parents and legal guardians may request that we review, delete, or stop the collection of personally identifiable information of their child. You may do so by contacting us at to email@example.com.
If you are aware of anyone under 13 using the Wachanga Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take required steps to delete such information and (or) delete their account.
Age limitation for EU residents. Due to requirements of the GDPR, you shall be at least 16 years old in order to use the App. To the extent prohibited by applicable law, we do not allow use of the App by the EU residents younger than 16 years old. If you are aware of anyone younger than 16 using the App, please contact us at email@example.com and we will take steps to delete such information and (or) delete their account.
Cookies and Web Beacons
The Website uses “cookie” and “web beacon” technology. “Cookies” are short pieces of data generated by a web server that a website stores on a user’s computer. Certain pages on our Website may require the use of a cookie for purposes of keeping information you enter on multiple pages together. Cookies also enable us to customize our Website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with us. In addition, cookies are used to:
• measure usage of various pages on our Website to help us make our information; more pertinent to your needs and easy for you to access;
• identify and categorized the internet webpages from which the visitor came to the Website and observe the browsing patterns; and
• provide functionality such as online orders, Wachanga services and other functionality that we believe would be of interest and value to you.
In addition, the service providers we use to serve and host our advertisements, and/or deliver our e-mails use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times the Website is accessed and whether the site was accessed from an advertisement. There are no cookies in advertisements or e-mails. The cookie generated from the advertisement or e-mail does not contain any personally identifiable information and will remain on your hard drive until you delete it.
You may set your browser to block cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although doing so may adversely affect your ability to perform certain transactions, use certain functionality and access certain content on our Website.
Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site. As opposed to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These web beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of web beacons allows the site to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the web beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website. Wachanga uses the information provided by web beacons to develop a better understanding of how the Website’s visitors use the Website and to facilitate those visitors' interactions with the Website. Wachanga may make the aggregate data obtained from web analytics (including from our third-party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.

In the event that all or substantially all of Wachanga’s stock and/or all or substantially all assets are transferred or sold to another entity, Wachanga may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity. If, as a result of such a business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a materially different manner than as described herein, you will be given choice consistent with our policy regarding notification of changes.
Disclosure of Information to Other Users
Through the use of the Wachanga Website, Wachanga Apps and Services, you may have the option to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself to other users.

CHOICES AVAILABLE TO YOU
You may always choose whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information and that choice will not prevent you from using the Services. Please note, however, if you should choose to withhold certain requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the Services dependent upon the collection of this information. You will be given an opportunity to “opt-in” and make your preference choices for any items that are optional and which are not prerequisites for our rendering such services.
You can choose at any time to opt-out of receiving e-mails from Wachanga by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you receive from Wachanga or by contacting Wachanga directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you elect to opt-out, we will not, as applicable, share your personal information with third parties or send you emails. However, we may continue to use your personal information for internal purposes, to enhance your user experience or as necessary to administer the site or comply with applicable law.
We reserve the right to send a one-time registration confirmation e-mail, and infrequent service alert messages to users to inform them of specific changes that may impact their ability to use a service they have previously signed up for, regardless of email contact opt-in status. We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of any applicable licensing, warranty and purchase agreements. Wachanga is retaining this right because in limited cases we feel that we may need to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that will be important to you. This does not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications is rare.
To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide Wachanga with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, address and the email address you provided to Wachanga when you requested services or products. Wachanga reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record.
C. PRIVACY-RELATED INQUIRIES AND COMPLAINTS
Please note that if you provide Wachanga with inconsistent privacy preferences (for example, by indicating on one occasion that third parties may contact you with marketing offers and indicating on another occasion that they may not), Wachanga cannot guarantee that your most recent privacy preference will be honored.
