Your use of the Site, or any portion thereof, following the posting of such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will provide you with additional notice of such changes by sending you an email at the last email address that you provided us, or by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Site.

2. What information does Hasbro collect?
Information That You Provide
Hasbro may collect personal information and other information that you provide when you use the Site. Notably, we may collect your first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, address, age and the first and last names of any co-contributors to your submission when you register with the Site and/or upload a submission.
Information We Collect Automatically From You
When you access or use our Site, we may automatically collect personal and non-personal information about you. For example, when you visit our Site, we collect your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which may be considered personal information under certain applicable laws and which we use to support our internal operations. The non-personal information we collect includes information about your computer’s operating system, access times, browser type and language and the URL of the website you visited before navigating to our Site. If you access our Site via a mobile device, we may also collect your device make and model, operating system version, mobile web browser type and version, information that may be used to identify your mobile carrier, IP address and the country in which you are using your device, and analytics used to collect aggregate statistical data.
We will not utilize location services to locate your specific device, but we will have access to IP address and country location information. We do not ask you for, access, or track any location-based information, other than country-level information from your mobile device and IP address, which may reveal more detailed information about your location, at any time.
To collect this information, we use the technologies identified below:
Cookies: Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Among other things, cookies help us improve our Site and your experience, see which areas and features of our Site are popular, and count visits. In addition, we may set a “flash cookie” (sometimes called a “flash object”) on your computer or device. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “What are my information choices?” below. Please see the following list of cookies on this site:
|User Session||Used to verify who you are. There are cookies for logged in users, for commenters, and for those submitting forms.|
|Site Preferences||Stores the preferences a visitor has made on the site, including whether the visitor has opted out of non-essential cookies|
|Google Analytics||Google Analytics collect information about how visitors use the site in order to optimize visitor experiences; note visitor page views and clicks within pages, length of time spent on our sites, and search term or referring site that brought a visitor to the site. You may remove the web beacons used by this site by following the instructions at www.aboutcookies.org.|
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. We use clear GIFs to monitor user behavior, deliver cookies, collect information, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if a recipient has opened and acted upon an email.
Log Files: Log files record website activity on our Site 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 our Site, which pages of our Site they’ve visited, and other similar data.
The above list provides an example of the non-personal information that is automatically collected via our Site. We may associate the information we collect from these technologies with other personal information that you provide for the purposes described in this Policy. Please note that we consider aggregated information, which is not personally identifiable, to be non-personal information. We may also tie non-personal information with personal information in order to ensure that the Site meets your needs. When we tie non-personal information with personal information, it is considered “personal information” for the purposes of this Policy. That means that we will be using and sharing this combined data in the ways described in that section below.
We use Google Analytics to help us understand how users access and use the Site. These tools and services place cookies, web beacons and other devices or technologies on our Site to enable them to track traffic data. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your Internet Service Provider, your web browser, the time spent on webpages, the links clicked, and the advertisements viewed on those pages. We use this information to improve our Site and your experience, to see which areas and features of our Site are popular, and to count visits. To learn more about Google Analytics, including how to opt out of Google Analytics, please visit Google’s site: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
