In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Website/Platform.
We only collect as much personal information as is reasonably necessary for a user to participate in an activity, and we do not condition a user's participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
We collect Personal Data in two ways: information you provide to us directly, and information that we collect automatically when you or a minor under your legal guardianship use our Website/Platform.

Personally, identifying data that our mobile application sends us automatically is limited to the device's public IP address.
