The Crayola Services offer features and content for both parents, teachers, teens and children, and we may collect information differently for each. We generally collect information from parents, teens and teachers so that we may communicate directly with them about Crayola and the Crayola Services, including physical address, email and other personal information. We generally do not collect personal information from children, and allow them to register with us using non-personal information so that we may store their preferences, such as artwork preferences, when using our Services.

Security Measures we take to safeguard personal information

We require our service providers and vendors to adhere to industry-accepted best practices to safeguard personal information they handle. However, no method is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information through commercially reasonable means, we cannot guarantee it’s absolute security When you create a password and log-in name, we recommend that you combine letters and numbers that will be difficult for others to duplicate or guess.

Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.

Web Beacons, Pixel tags or clear GIFs
We also use other technology, called web beacons, pixel tags or clear GIFs, to provide us with other important anonymous information, such as when an e-mail has been opened. Companies that advertise on our Sites may also place web beacons in their ads to help develop statistics on the effectiveness of advertising at our Sites. We do not control web beacons in third party ads.
For some Apps or services, we or our third party service and content providers and analytics companies may collect location information, including location information provided either by a mobile device interacting with one of our Apps or associated with your IP address or WiFi network. These features might enable you to engage in activities like find a nearby store or play certain games, for example. You can generally limit or prohibit the collection of location information by using the built-in settings on your mobile device. You will typically be notified if the App or service collects location information and given a chance to agree. We do not permit collection of precise location information (actual address) in mobile Apps without your consent. Child-directed Apps do not collect precise location information.
Website and Mobile App Analytics
We support the cross-industry Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising as managed by the Digital Advertising Alliance. As part of this service, our online advertisements and Web sites may be delivered with icons that help consumers understand how their data is being used and provide choice options to consumers that want more control. For more information about our network advertisers, including information about how to opt out of technologies that they control, please follow the directions on the AdChoices icon within any interest or behavior based advertisement. Some of our Sites may also include the AdChoices icon on the home page. You can also visit websites operated by the Network Advertising Initiative and Digital Advertising Alliance to access opt-out tools available from those participating in the program. Participating network advertisers will be listed at those sites. Opting out means that you will still see ads, but they may not be tailored to your specific interests.
Please note: your opt-out choices are browser-specific and device-specific.
Social Media Platforms and Plugins
The Crayola Services generally require little or no collection of personal information. We may ask a child to provide a screen name and password or demographic information, such as gender, birthday, and state of residence, to register for access to certain features of the Crayola Services, such as stored coloring pages. We require users to choose usernames that do not include personally identifiable information, such as their real name, phone number, or address. From time to time, however, we may request that a child provide an email address in order to participate in particular activities.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user’s computer. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but can be configured not to do so or to notify the user when a cookie is sent. You can choose to remove cookies through your browser options. However, if you do so, some functionality may be limited. If you wish to disable cookies, please refer to your browser’s help section. Web beacons are 1x1 single-pixel graphics that may be embedded in web pages or emails. We may use web beacons to collect information about advertising and site traffic statistics.
We generally do not collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent, except in certain limited cases, which may include the following:
We may collect a parent’s email address in order to provide the parent with notice that his or her child signed up for an account with a Crayola Service that does not otherwise collect, use, or disclose children’s personal information. We generally will not use or disclose the email address that we collect except to send the initial notices and subsequent updates about the child’s participation on the Crayola Services.
From time to time, we may have special online promotions such as sweepstakes and contests on the Crayola Services that are open for registration by children under the age of 13. In these situations, we may collect online contact information in order to communicate on a one-time basis with a child to inform him or her that he or she has won the sweepstakes or contest. At that point, we may ask the winning child for the online contact information of a parent or guardian so that we can make arrangements to award the prize. We will delete the child’s online contact information and will not use it to re-contact the child or disclose it. Alternatively, we may ask the child for a parent or guardian’s online contact information so that we can notify the parent or guardian about the child’s participation in a promotion or otherwise seek consent. Any information that is given to us in this circumstance is used only for the purpose of conducting the activity and will be deleted from our system after the promotion has ended or any other legally required period for keeping such information has passed.
We may collect a child’s name and contact information to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security or integrity of the Crayola Services; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; or (to the extent permitted by law) to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety.
We may use persistent identifiers, such as IP addresses and cookie IDs, to support the internal operations of the Crayola Services. We also may allow third parties to collect persistent identifiers to support the internal operations of the Crayola Services. For example, our third-party service providers may collect persistent identifiers to help us with traffic measurement, research, and analytics.
We may otherwise collect personal information from your child as permitted by law.
Use of Personal Information
In addition to the uses outlined in the Parental Consent section, we may use personal information that we collect through the Crayola Services for a variety of purposes, including to provide children with the services and information they request; customize and personalize a child’s use of the Crayola Services; maintain or administer the Crayola Services or perform business analyses; improve the quality of the Crayola Services or any related services; and as otherwise described to parents at the point of collection or pursuant to parental consent.
Sharing of Personal Information
We may transfer, disclose, or share personal information we collect through the Crayola Services with service providers who we engage specifically to administer or perform certain functions on our behalf, such as conducting sweepstakes and contests. These service providers have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use or disclose it for other purposes. We may also disclose personal information to third parties when required by law or pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings, when otherwise necessary to protect the Crayola Services or the safety of our users or any third party, or with a parent/guardian’s consent. If we sell all or part of our organization, or make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the event of bankruptcy, we may transfer your information to one or more third parties as part of that transaction.
The security and confidentiality of your child’s information is extremely important to us, and we take a number of steps to help safeguard any personal information that your child provides to us. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and therefore we cannot warrant or guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.
Parental Control of Personal Information
Upon providing proper identification, parents can review, correct, or have deleted their child’s personal information from our database, or refuse further collection or use of personal information from their child by writing to us at:
