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.
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, include your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, other unique identifiers (e.g., ad tags or IDs), information about your hardware, operating system version, browser type and language, screen resolution, geographic location (country, state, and city level), the URL of the website you visited before navigating to the Services, and other analytics and statistical data regarding use of the Services (e.g., downloads, number of users, access times, sessions, page views, frequency of use, retention, clicks, etc.). In addition to the above, if you access the Services via a mobile device, we may also collect your device ID, device make and model, and mobile carrier.
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 preferences, support security features, see which areas and features of the Services are popular, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and provide and personalize 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.
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:
- Partners that offer co-branded services or engage in marketing and advertising activities on our behalf; and
- Publicly available sources, including data in the public domain.
4. HOW DOES HASBRO USE MY INFORMATION?

- With consultants and other service providers who are working on our behalf and need access to your information to carry out operational business purposes for us. For example, service providers assist us with payment processing, data analytics, marketing, website hosting, advertising and technical support. We contractually prohibit these entities from retaining, using, or disclosing information about you for any purpose other than performing services for us and require these entities to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us or through the Site and the Services;
- With vendors and other parties for business or commercial purposes, including analytics and advertising technology companies. Vendors and other parties may act as a service provider, or in certain contexts, independently decide how to process information (review the “Analytics and Advertising” section below for more information);
- With our affiliates for internal business purposes;
- With our affiliates and other parties for Hasbro's own marketing purposes and those affiliates' and other parties' own business purposes, including direct marketing purposes (California residents have certain rights set forth in the section entitled "Shine the Light");

- In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, bankruptcy or reorganization, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
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.
SOCIAL SHARING FEATURES
The Services (including content and functionality on or features of the Services provided by our service providers) may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook and Twitter widgets), which let you share actions you take on the Services with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features may enable the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the party that provides these features. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the parties that provide these features.
LINKING TO EXTERNAL SITES, APPLICATIONS, AND OTHER ONLINE SERVICES
6. ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING
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 inform us that you want us to remove your account information from our database by contacting Hasbro Consumer Care. 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, Hasbro’s latest shopping destination for fans.
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 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 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 also reviews its security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods.
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. 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.
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.
