OPEN WORLD CORP. PRIVACY POLICY AND NOTICE
The Open World Messaging System (The OWMS) and the associated The OWMS websites available at www.brickfestlive.com, www.minefaire.com, and www.comicconfiorkids.com (“The OWMS”) are owned and operated by Open World, Inc. ("us" "we" or "our"). This OWMS privacy policy & Mobile Terms of Service (the "Privacy Policy") is intended to inform you of our policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of any information you submit to us through The OWMS. This includes "Personal Information," which is information about you that is personally identifiable such as your name, e-mail address, user ID number, and other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing, as well as "Anonymous Information," which is information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information and does not permit the identification of individual persons.

Regarding Children

Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use The OWMS and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old.

We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent's permission before submitting information over the internet. By using The OWMS, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old, or that you are at least 13 years old and have your parents' permission to use The OWMS.

Information Collected Via Technology

As you use The OWMS, certain information may also be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers' server logs, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, and operating system. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on The OWMS you clicked. This type of information is collected to make The OWMS and solutions more useful to you and to tailor the experience with The OWMS to meet your special interests and needs. An "Internet protocol address" or "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we may track your IP Address when you access The OWMS to assist with ad targeting. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with The OWMS. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through The OWMS, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable cookies, some aspects of The OWMS may not work properly, and you will not be able to receive our services. We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products and/or services by placing advertisements on The OWMS. These advertisers and ad servers may use Cookies and/or "Web Beacons" (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) in order to monitor information related to served advertisements. Clicking on such advertisements will direct you to the website of a third-party and the advertiser. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not generally sell, trade, rent, or share the Personal Information that we collect with third parties unless you ask or authorize us to do so. In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us to provide you access to The OWMS, to improve The OWMS, to better tailor the features, performance, and support of The OWMS and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us, our partners or our advertisers at your request. Additionally, we do share your content preferences and other information with the social network from which you have connected to The OWMS, along with those companies and persons you have asked us to share your information with. We may provide your Personal Information to third-party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of The OWMS and to help us communicate with you. Examples of such services include sending an email, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments), and providing customer service. We require our third-party service providers to promise not to use such information except as necessary to provide the relevant services to us. We may share your personal information with trusted vendors and partners with whom we work. These partners are provided with your personal information to help us communicate with you about offers from us and from our marketing partners. They are contractually required to keep this personal information secure and to only use it for the purposes for which it is provided. We may send personal information about you to other companies or people when we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested or to provide a product or service to you. However, these companies are only permitted to use personal information for these purposes. This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of your personally identifiable information by such third-parties. We do not maintain responsibility for the manner in which third parties, including, without limitation, social networks, other partners and advertisers, use or further disclose Personal Information collected from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy after we have disclosed such information to those third parties. If you do not want us to use or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the manners identified in this Privacy Policy, you may not use The OWMS. We currently have other companies under common control, and we may share some or all of your Personal Information with these companies, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy. In the event we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy and that any acquirer of ours or that acquirer's assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties. You hereby consent to us sharing your Personal Information under the circumstances described herein.
