7) Security of Your Personal Data

The security of Your Personal Data is important to Us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Data, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We have established a dedicated security team to take all reasonable and feasible measures to protect your personal information:

  1. We will employ security technology measures that comply with industry standards, including encryption, to encrypt your personal information and isolate it using isolation techniques to prevent unauthorized access, modification, data damage, or loss.
  2. We have an advanced data security management system centered around personal information, focusing on the data lifecycle. This system enhances the overall security of the system through organizational development, policy design, and personnel management. We manage the storage and use of personal information by establishing data classification and grading systems, data security management regulations, and data security development specifications.
  3. We only allow personnel who need to know this information to access your personal information and have set up strict access control and monitoring mechanisms for this purpose. We also require all personnel who may come into contact with your personal information to fulfill corresponding confidentiality obligations.
  4. To address the risks of personal information leakage, damage, and loss, we have established multiple systems, clearly defining the classification and grading standards for security events and vulnerabilities, along with corresponding processing procedures. We have also established an emergency response team for security events, initiating security plans and taking measures to mitigate, analyze, locate, develop remedies, and collaborate with relevant departments for tracing and combating security incidents according to security incident handling standards.

Please understand that due to technological limitations and risk prevention constraints, even though we have strengthened security measures to the best of our ability, we cannot guarantee 100% security of information. In the event of security incidents such as personal information leaks, we will initiate emergency plans to prevent the expansion of security incidents and promptly report them in accordance with relevant regulations such as the "National Network Security Incident Emergency Plan". We will inform you of relevant circumstances through email, push notifications, announcements, etc., and provide security advice.

You need to understand that the systems and communication networks you use for our services may encounter problems beyond our control. To more effectively safeguard your information security, we also hope you can enhance self-protection. If your physical, technical, or managerial protective measures are compromised, leading to unauthorized access, disclosure, tampering, or destruction of your personal information, you will bear the risks and responsibilities, and we will not be liable.

8) Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If You are a parent or guardian and You are aware that Your child has provided Us with Personal Data, please contact Us. If We become aware that We have collected Personal Data from anyone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, We take steps to remove that information from Our servers.
If We need to rely on consent as a legal basis for processing Your information and Your country requires consent from a parent, We may require Your parent's consent before We collect and use that information.

Due to existing technological limitations and business models, we find it challenging to actively identify information belonging to minors. If we inadvertently collect personal information from minors without prior knowledge or without obtaining verifiable consent from their legal guardians, the legal guardians may notify us to delete such information. In instances where we identify such occurrences ourselves, we will proactively delete the information without requiring your consent, unless required by law to retain such data.
