Children's privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. We urge parents and guardians to supervise their children's Internet usage. If You are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to Us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to Us on our Service. In the event that We learn that We have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, We will delete that information as quickly as possible. If You believe that We might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact Us at support@haktradio.com.

Communications and marketing

As permitted by applicable law, We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to You. You may opt out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the e-mail.

To ensure the appropriate use of information and protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the information We collect online.
