Other portions of the Services are designed for social engagement which means that information about your activities on social areas of the Services may be accessible to other users of the Service and messages that you send via the Services will be accessible to other users.

Please be thoughtful when participating in social features, especially before sharing any sensitive information.

The information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy.


We may use automated decision-making technologies to support our data processing activities.

If your account is blocked, affected users can contact Playhouse Studios, Inc. to contest the decision.
