Other users will be able to see some of your Personal Information which includes, but is not limited to: your first name, first letter of last name and photo (if available), when you submit ratings, comments and playground photos.
Providing additional Personal Information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with other PlayGoKids users. We recommend that you refrain from disclosing any information you consider to be sensitive or confidential.

Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Sharing your information
PlayGoKids cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law.

How do we store your data?
We care about the security of your information. We securely store your data using commercially reasonable safeguards and precautions to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through our Service.
However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorised persons. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe, and to logout of your account after use. If your Google account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorised use of your PlayGoKids account, so be careful to keep your account information secure.
We will retain copies of your information for as long as you maintain your account or as necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this Statement, unless applicable law requires a longer retention period. In addition, we may retain your information for the duration of any period necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal rights.
