Privacy Policy

Sqwish World, LLC is committed to providing a fun, entertaining, and safe website for people of all ages. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and to helping parents and children learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet.Because many of the visitors to this site are children, we see to it that the content in our site is suitable for children. In addition, we take special measures to help children protect their privacy while online. For instance, we do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity. We take efforts to prevent children from posting their contact information.

To help ensure a rewarding online experience for our visitors – and for the parents of our visitors who are children – we provide you with this summary of our information practices. As we continue to offer our visitors with new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices from time to time. However, we will treat all personal information we collect in accordance with the privacy notice in effect at the time the information is collected.

1. The Information We Collect

Personally identifiable information (PII) is any kind of information that can directly identify an individual, such includes a valid parent’s e-mail, and country address. Information that may be personal in nature, but cannot identify an individual directly, is not considered personally identifiable information. For instance, an individual’s birthdate and even a favorite Sqwishland®™ character are all personal information, but are not PII for the reason that these information cannot be used to directly identify an individual.
If you decide to purchase a premium account for your child we will collect your name, credit card number and billing address. We will use this information for the purpose of fulfilling your order. If we have difficulty processing your payment we will use this information to contact you.
We collect information in a variety of ways on the site. We will collect no more personally identifiable information from you than is reasonably necessary for you to participate in an online activity.
