We may amend this Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy at any time by posting a revised version on our website. We will attempt to give a reasonable notice period upon making any changes; however, unless otherwise stated, the revised version will be effected at the time we post it.
In general, only legally capable people are allowed to use our website https://alliedbits.com/ (“Website”).
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the GDPR or applicable national laws put parental responsibility holder (“parents”) in control. The Federal Trade Commission, European Union data protection authorities, national consumer protection agencies enforce the rules, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. Usually, age threshold to be considered legally capable to make transactions without authorization from the parents is 13-16 depending on the jurisdiction. Please remember that we have the right to verify in such cases that the consent is given by the parent him- or herself, and you can be obliged to provide us with personal data on you and/or your child which we will have to process pursuant to legal obligation to do so.
We do not specifically target our advertising anywhere to children under 13. If you know that we process data of persons under the age of legal capacity, please inform us via the contact form at https://alliedbits.com/contacts/. Once we verify the authority of the person sending the request, we will delete the pointed personal data instantly.
