Children’s Information Policy
If you are under the age of 13, you are not allowed to use the Service. Cosmunity does not knowingly solicit any personal information from children under the age of 13. If Cosmunity is made aware that Cosmunity has collected personal information from a child under 13 years old in a manner that is inconsistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of the United States, then Cosmunity will delete this information as soon as practicable.
When you or any User signs up for our Service, we may collect personal registration information that you actively provide us and that you can access and update within the Service at any time, including your name, address, and email address. We may also update your registration information, for example, if you give a new email address or shipping address to our technical support staff. Cosmunity may collect images of Users, but only if such images are voluntarily uploaded to the User’s account profile. Cosmunity may also collect the above information through forms you or any User voluntarily submit to us.
We use your email address to communicate with you about your transactions, new services and other topics we believe are of interest to you. In addition, from Users who send e-mail inquiries to Cosmunity or request information from Cosmunity, certain personal information you provide will be used for the purpose of responding to your inquiry.

Cosmunity uses third party payment processors, such as PayPal (“Payment Processors”) to process your personal financial information such as credit card or bank account information for the purposes of allowing Users to purchase various items via the Service and through third party websites or marketplaces linked through the Service (collectively, the “Online Purchases”). Financial information is provided directly to such Payment Processors by Users, and Cosmunity does not store this information on its servers or computer systems. To ensure greater security, this Service shares only the information necessary to execute the Online Purchases with the financial intermediaries handling the transaction. Some aspects of the Services may also enable the sending of timed messages to the User, such as emails containing invoices or notifications concerning the payment.
Cosmunity may collect information regarding the location of a User accessing the Service, such as geographic area (state and city) and GPS coordinates.
