TOMY provides the web-based computer application through which the content and functionality available to you at the Sites and at your TOMY Account is delivered, and which enables you to order TOMY products (“Products”) through your Account. Your privacy on the Internet is important to Us. We want you to be informed about the collection and use of your personally identifiable information that occurs during your use of the Sites.
Information Collected and Tracked
We may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you through your use of the Sites. “Personally Identifiable Information” means individually identifiable information about an individual consumer that We collect online and that We maintain in an accessible form.
Optional Voluntary Information
There are occasions where We ask you to voluntarily submit Personally Identifiable Information about yourself through the Sites, such as your name, telephone number, street address, e-mail address, financial information, such as credit card numbers for use when purchasing Products, and shipping information if different from your street address. In addition, We request Personally Identifiable Information about you when you submit a recall request, submit a job application, and register as a TOMY Account holder.
We collect tracking information and monitor traffic patterns throughout the Sites; however, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users unless you have registered as a TOMY Account holder. We do break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and internet protocol address by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every Internet user’s browser). This information allows Us to better tailor Our content to Our Account holders’ needs and preferences and those of other users of the Sites.
Third Party Information
Cookies and Pixel Tags
You can also opt out of cookies set by specific entities by following the instructions found at these links:
You can understand which entities have currently enabled cookies for your browser or mobile device and how to opt-out of some of those cookies by accessing the Network Advertising Initiative’s website or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s website. For more information on mobile specific opt-out choices, visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Mobile Choices website.
Please note that these opt-out mechanisms are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised. Therefore, you will need to opt out on every browser and device that you use.
We also use "pixel tags" (also called "web beacons" or "clear gifs"), which are tiny graphic images, on Our Sites and in Our emails. Pixel tags help us analyze Our customers' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of Our Sites and Our advertising. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.
Pixel tags on the Sites may be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Sites. This information may include your computer's Internet protocol (IP) address, your browser type, your operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your computer.
Use of Information and Protection of Your Privacy
We use the Personally Identifiable Information we gather about you to better understand your needs, adjust your TOMY Account to your personal preferences, enable you to search for and order Our Products through your TOMY Account, process your Account registration, Product order, or Product recall, review your job application, provide support, enable you to participate in any message boards, participate in events or sweepstakes, contests and promotions, and send you e-mail and postal mail newsletters and announcements, including that you have won a sweepstakes, contest or promotion, support our marketing and research activities, and for other similar business purposes.
We also may share your Personally Identifiable Information among our brands and associated websites that comprise the Sites. We do not, however, in the regular course of Our business disclose or sell mailing lists containing Personally Identifiable Information about you to any outside parties for their own direct marketing use. Also, We will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with any outside parties without your permission, unless such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety or property of Our users, employees, independent contractors or the public.
We may use third-party contractors who can access Our databases for the purpose of conducting repairs or upgrades to Our computer system. We may also use third-party service providers such as fulfillment services, sweepstakes administration, technical support, and delivery services providers and give them access to your Personally Identifiable Information as part of the services they provide to Us. For example, we use Cybersource, a Visa solution, to process payments.
If you provide Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Sites, we may combine such information with other information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We hold all such third parties to the same privacy standards to which We hold Ourselves. We require these third parties to use and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information only as necessary to perform their services for Us.
In addition, any collection, use or disclosure of persistent identifiers on the Sites is limited to purposes supporting internal operations of the Sites. Internal operations of the Sites may include contextual advertising, activities necessary for the Sites to maintain or analyze its functioning; performing network communications; authenticating users or personalizing content; capping the frequency of advertising; protecting the security or integrity of the user, Web site, or online service; and/or ensuring legal or regulatory compliance. Persistent identifiers are not used or disclosed to contact a specific individual, including through behavioral advertising or to amass a profile on a specific individual. We also require our advertising service partners to comply with these advertising guidelines. Advertising partners are not permitted to "retarget" advertising to you on other sites after visiting the Sites.
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), We do not knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) years. If We discover that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided Us with any personal information, We will delete that information from Our systems. We ask that parents supervise their children while online.
Notice to Nevada Residents
Nevada law allows Nevada residents to opt-out of the sale of certain types of personal information. Subject to several exceptions, Nevada law defines “sale” to mean the exchange of certain types of personal information for monetary consideration to a person for the person to license or sell the information to additional persons. We do not currently sell personal information as defined in the Nevada law. However, if you are a Nevada resident, you still may submit a verified request to opt-out of sales and we will record your instructions and incorporate them in the future if our policy changes. Opt-out requests may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 1-800-704-8697 toll-free, or via the Contact Us form at us.tomy.com/contact-us.

Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that We delete the Personal Information about you that We have collected. However, per the CCPA, We are not required to comply with a request to delete if it is necessary for Us to maintain the Personal Information in order to, for example, complete a transaction, detect security incidents, comply with a legal obligation, or otherwise use the Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
How to Submit a Request to Know or Delete
If you submit a request to delete online, you may be asked to confirm separately that you want your Personal Information deleted.
Our Process for Verifying a Request to Know or Delete
If We determine that your request is subject to an exemption or exception, We will notify you of our determination. If We determine that your request is not subject to an exemption or exception, We will comply with your request upon verification of your identity and, to the extent applicable, the identity of the California resident on whose behalf you are making such request.
We will verify your identity either to a “reasonable degree of certainty” or a “reasonably high degree of certainty” depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the risk of harm to you by unauthorized disclosure or deletion as applicable.
For requests to know categories of Personal Information and for requests to delete Personal Information that is not sensitive and does not pose a risk of harm by unauthorized deletion, We will verify your identity to a “reasonable degree of certainty” by verifying at least two data points that you previously provided to Us and which We have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying identities.
For requests to access specific pieces of Personal Information or for requests to delete Personal Information that is sensitive and poses a risk of harm by unauthorized deletion, We will verify your identity to a “reasonably high degree of certainty” by verifying at least three pieces of Personal Information previously provided to Us and which We have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying identities. In addition, you will be required to submit a signed declaration under penalty of perjury stating that you are the individual whose Personal Information is being requested.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information
If you are a California resident, you have the right to direct Us to stop selling your Personal Information.
The CCPA defines “sell” to mean selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a California resident’s Personal Information to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.
To opt-out of Our use of third-party advertising cookies, please see the section “Cookies and Pixel Tags” above. You may submit a request to opt-out of sales through our interactive webform available by clicking on this link: “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.” You also may submit a request by calling 1-800-704-8697 toll-free, emailing email@example.com, or via the Contact Us form at us.tomy.com/contact-us.
Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a California Resident’s Privacy Rights
We will not discriminate against California residents if they exercise any of the rights provided in the CCPA as described in this section “Notice to California Residents.” As such, We will not deny goods or services to that California resident; charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; provide a different level or quality of goods or services to the California resident; or suggest that the California resident will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services. However, We are permitted to charge a California resident a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to Us by the individual’s data.
If you are submitting a request on behalf of a California resident, please submit the request through one of the designated methods discussed above. After submitting the request, and if the request is not subject to an exemption or exception, We will require additional information to verify your authority to act on behalf of the California resident.
Shine the Light Law
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits customers of the brands and associated websites that comprise the Sites who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes (as those terms are defined in the statute). To make such a request, please direct your email or mail request as set forth in the “Contacting Us” section below.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, the Sites do not currently interpret, respond to or alter their practices when they receive “Do Not Track” signals.
We maintain commercially reasonable security measures to protect your Personally Identifiable Information we collect and store from loss, misuse, destruction, or unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. We, therefore, cannot warrant or guarantee the security of any Personally Identifiable Information you transmit to Us online or be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of that information.
Unsubscribe from Marketing Communications
If you have opted-in to receive promotional materials from us, we may use your email address and other contact information provided to us through the Sites to send you these communications. If you do not want to receive such promotional information, you can change your communication preferences and remove yourself from our email list at any time by changing the settings of your communication preferences by following the unsubscribe links on any promotional materials sent to you. Please also note that even if you opt out of receiving promotional emails from us, we may still use your information to communicate with you for other purposes, such as orders, purchases, and customer service responses.
