Note About Selfie-Series:
As of September 2022, the Pulse Mobile app includes Selfie Series, an optional app experience that allows users located in the United States to create customized products resembling their likeness (“Selfie”). A couple of things to remember about Selfie: first, you do not need to use Selfie to enjoy Pulse Mobile, and second, Selfie is only available through Pulse Mobile; it is not available on the Hasbro Pulse website.
Pulse is intended only for users and visitors located in the United States and Canada. Pulse Mobile and Selfie are available only to users located in the United States at this time.
If you are a California resident, please see the "Additional disclosures for California residents" in section 9.

The Services are not intended for individuals under 16 years of age, and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from individuals under 16 years of age in connection with the Services.

2. WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED FROM ME?
INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE

Depending on the activity, the types of personal information that you provide and we or our service providers process or collect, including in the last 12 months, include:
Other information you may also provide through your use of the Services includes your product preferences, searches, and browsing activity.
In some cases, we also collect information you provide about others, such as when you refer someone to the Services (including promotions) or when you purchase and ship products to someone. We will use this information to fulfill your requests and will not send communications to your contacts unrelated to your requests, unless they separately consent to receive communications from us.
Please see Section 5 for an explanation of the data collected if you choose to use Selfie.
INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY FROM YOU
When you access or use the Services, we and our service providers may also automatically collect information about your visit. The types of information we and our service providers automatically collect, including in the last 12 months, may include:
To collect this information, we and our service providers use various technologies, including the following:
Cookies: Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Among other things, cookies help us and our service providers to improve the Services, remember your settings and preferences, support security features, see which areas and features of the Services are popular, count visits, measure users’ responses to offers for our Services, and better understand how you use the Services so we can provide you with personalized content and advertising. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, please see the “What are my information choices?" section below.
Clear GIFs: Clear GIFs, sometimes called "web bugs" or "web beacons," are small electronic images that are placed on a web page or in an email message or advertisement. Clear GIFs may permit us to drop or read cookies and are often used in combination with cookies to track activity by a particular browser to a particular device. We use clear GIFs to, among other things, collect information, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, provide and personalize content and advertising, and tell if a recipient has opened and acted upon an email.
Log Files: Log files record website activity on the Services and enable us to gather statistics about our users' browsing habits. These entries help Hasbro determine, among other things, how many and how often users have accessed or used the Services, which pages of the Services they've visited, and other similar data.
Do Not Track (DNT) Signals: Your browser may allow you to set a Do Not Track (DNT) signal indicating that you do not wish your online activity to be tracked. Currently, our system does not support and cannot act on DNT signal headers that we may receive. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to DNT signals.
Service Use Analytics & Telemetry: We may use one or more types of data analytics applications or providers to understand how consumers interact with our mobile app and/or website in a pseudonymized fashion (i.e., to collect analytics on trends in the aggregate, or to distinguish large, broad groups of different user types). We may also use analytics to provide improvements to our app and website, to assist with bug fixing, and to understand our users’ preferences so we improve products and services in the future.
Marketing Retargeting: If you opt-in to our push notification service, email notifications, and/or newsletter services, we may use such notifications to deliver marketing and promotional messages to you about products and services you have demonstrated an interest in.
INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM OTHER SOURCES
We and our service providers may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Services. For example, if we enable a feature on the Site that permits you to interact with a social media site or platform, or if we partner with a social media site or platform for advertising purposes, we may have access to certain information from that social media site or platform, such as your name, account information, and friends, and engagement with our content or our brands on the social media site or platform, in accordance with your settings for how the social media site or platform may share your information and the authorization procedures determined by such social media site or platform. In addition to social media sites and platforms, the other sources from which we have collected information about you, including in the last 12 months, include:

USE OF INFORMATION
To accomplish these legitimate business purposes, we may link or combine your information with other information we get from our service providers or other parties (for example, fulfilment of shipping by our third-party fulfilment partners), or information related to your interactions with other Hasbro sites or online services.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
We may also share aggregated information or information that we have collected from you through the Services, including on co-branded pages and where we have taken reasonable measures to de-identify such information.

LINKING TO EXTERNAL SITES, APPLICATIONS, AND OTHER ONLINE SERVICES
5. SELFIE SERIES FACE TECH USER POLICY
Face Tech is a Hasbro-developed technology utilizing your mobile phone camera to take pictures of your face, and uses these images to create a 3D mesh of your facial geometry. That mesh, along with texture maps generated from the same camera images, is used to “grow” a custom 3D-printed plastic action figure head (“Face Tech”).
Face Tech data collected (which can only be collected by your explicit consent before using the Selfie functionality) includes a digital file representing the 3D geometry of your face and one or more digital photographs of your face taken during the scanning process that have been altered to stretch over the mesh geometry(“Face Tech Data”).
Hasbro cannot, nor do we use Face Tech Data to identify you or any individual on its Services.
Hasbro will only collect Face Tech Data after you consent to this Selfie Series Face Tech User Policy, by clicking the button labeled “I consent” and following the instructions in the app to create a scan of your face. Hasbro will not share (or sell) the Face Tech Data with any other persons, companies, or third parties. Hasbro will not link or combine Face Tech Data with any other data. Hasbro processes the Face Tech Data on secure Amazon Web Services cloud servers controlled by Hasbro that enforce data encryption both in transit and at rest.
Users who choose not to make a purchase, will have their Face Tech Data automatically deleted promptly. Users may revoke their consent at any time prior to making a purchase.
Face Tech Data retention: If you have completed a purchase, Hasbro will retain your Face Tech Data only for as long as required to process your order and for QA purposes (up to 60 days from the time of shipment, as described in the commercial terms and conditions for Hasbro Pulse), after which it is automatically deleted.
Other than Face Tech Data, discussed above in paragraph 5, Hasbro retains your information for business purposes, for as long as your account is active, and/or as long as is reasonably necessary to provide you with our products and services. You may request to have your information, other than your Face Tech Data, if any, which is automatically deleted as described above, by requesting such deletion here. Hasbro will also retain your information as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may also retain cached or archived copies of your information for a reasonable period of time.
6. ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING
WEBSITE and MOBILE ANALYTICS
Websites and applications owned or operated by other parties may display ads from Hasbro that are targeted to reach people (or people similar to people) on those websites or applications who have visited our Services or are also identified on one of more of Hasbro's databases. This is done by us uploading a customer list to the other party or incorporating a pixel from the other party on our Services, and the other party matching common factors between our data and the data of the other party. For instance, we incorporate the Facebook pixel on our Site and may share your email address with Facebook as part of Facebook Custom Audiences. We may also work with partners to deliver matched ads based on data about you and others in those partners' own databases.
For information about your choices regarding analytics, interest-based advertising, and matched ads, please see the next section.
7. WHAT ARE MY INFORMATION CHOICES?
If you have created an account with the Services, you may at any time review and/or update the contact details and address information we have for you by signing in or by contacting Hasbro Pulse Consumer Care at CustomerService@HasbroPulse.com with any questions or updates to your account information. If you wish to fully remove your account information from our database and delete your information, please click on this link to our online form to do so. If you choose to send us an email through Consumer Care, please be sure to include the following in your message: the name of the Hasbro website with which you have an account, and the email address you used to sign up for that account so that we can verify your request. If you have requested that we save information for you in connection with placing an order through the Services, please email your request to CustomerService@HasbroPulse.com. We will respond to requests as soon as possible. Please note, however, that we may retain your information following such requests as described in the section on Security below.
REGARDING RATINGS, REVIEWS, AND QUESTIONS YOU POST
If you have posted product-related questions, ratings, or review content that you want us to remove from the Site, please email your request to CustomerService@HasbroPulse.com. Please note, however, that we may retain the previously posted information following such requests as described in the section on Security below.
REGARDING PROMOTIONAL COMMUNICATIONS
We may send you promotional communications if you sign up to receive them through the Services. If you have signed up to receive promotional communications from Hasbro via another Hasbro ecommerce site, you will continue to receive them through Hasbro Pulse.
You may opt-out of receiving promotional emails or mail from Hasbro by declining to receive such communications when you place an order or at the time you otherwise provide your contact information to us. You may also opt-out of receiving promotional emails at any time by following the instructions to “unsubscribe” in those emails or by sending an email to CustomerService@HasbroPulse.com.
If you opt-out, we may still send you transactional or relationship messages, such as emails about your account, an order you have placed, a crowdfunded product you have backed, or our other ongoing business relations.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Services.
REGARDING ANALYTICS AND INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING
Google provides tools to manage the collection and use of certain information by Google Analytics at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Some of the companies we work with to provide you with targeted advertising participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") or the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). For more information about the targeted advertising provided by these companies, and how to opt out of having your information used in this way by these companies, please visit: www.aboutads.info/choices for opt out for DAA participating companies or https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices for opt out for NAI participating companies. Opting out only means that the selected participants should no longer deliver certain targeted ads to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks).
To opt out of us using your data for matched ads, please contact us as set forth in the “Contact Us” section below and specify that you wish to opt out of matched ads. We will request that the applicable party not serve you matched ads based on information we provide to it. Alternatively, you may directly contact the applicable party to opt-out.
You may also limit our use of information collected from or about your mobile device for purposes of serving online behavioral advertising to you by going to your device settings and selecting “Limit Ad Tracking” (for iOS devices) or “Opt out of Ads Personalization” (for Android devices).
Please note that if you opt out using any of these methods, the opt out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out. Hasbro is not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt out options or programs, or the accuracy of any third-party statements regarding opt out options or programs.
Hasbro has established policies and implemented physical and technical measures in an effort to protect your personal information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and/or destruction. For example, Hasbro strives to provide only those employees performing a legitimate business function with access to users' personal information. Hasbro ensures that those employees are trained annually on data security. Hasbro also reviews its security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods.
Despite our efforts, please be aware that no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable. To that end, Hasbro will notify users of a data breach when Hasbro determines that is reasonably necessary in accordance with applicable law.
