CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our Sites are not directed at children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information directly from children under the age of 13 or from other websites or services directed at children under the age of 13. Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (“COPPA”), Funko will not knowingly request or collect personal information from any child under age 13 without obtaining the required parental consent.
The parent or legal guardian who has consented to a child providing personal information to one or more of the Sites may later view the child’s personal information and correct or remove the information, in whole or in part; instruct us to discontinue all use of the child’s personal information and/or not to communicate further with the child; or revoke or modify the consent, by contacting us at email@example.com and including the child’s name and email address and the parent or guardian’s name and email address.

You may request to view your personal information, or delete or modify incorrect parts thereof by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we may be required to decline your deletion request, or only honor your deletion request after a certain period of time, for business or legal reasons. In response to a deletion request, we may delete the personal information or deidentify/aggregate the personal information so that it can no longer be reasonably connected to you. When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We reserve the right and may be required by law to verify the identity of any person making a request to access, modify or delete personal information; provided, however, that we will have no liability of any kind resulting from false or erroneous requests by you or any change or deletion made in accordance with your request.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND STORES

DISCLOSURE AND “SALE” OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We share personal information with third parties for business purposes or we may sell your personal information to third parties, subject to your right to opt-out of those sales (please refer to the Your California Privacy Rights section below). The categories of third parties to whom we disclose your personal information may include our subsidiaries, our service providers that perform services or functions on our behalf, marketing providers, and certain third parties where you have provided consent or where we are required by law.
As is common practice among companies that operate online, we also allow certain third-party providers to collect information about consumers directly through our websites and other online services for purposes of analyzing and optimizing our services, delivering ads, providing content and ads that are more relevant, measuring statistics and the success of ad campaigns, and detecting and reporting fraud. To the extent this practice is interpreted to constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please refer to the Submitting Requests section below regarding your right to opt-out.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

In certain circumstances, we may decline or limit your request, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems, or as permitted by law.
PRIVACY DISCLOSURES FOR THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA, UNITED KINGDOM AND SWITZERLAND
While we are primarily based in the United States, we maintain operations in Europe and may direct our services to individuals located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United Kingdom and Switzerland, including through our European-specific Sites like www.funkoeurope.com (collectively, our “European Services”). The following disclosures apply to our processing of personal data in connection with our European Services.
Funko UK, LTD is the data controller responsible for the processing of personal data in connection with our European Services.
Personal Data: When we use the term “personal data” in this section, we mean information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Categories of Personal Data: We collect the categories of personal data set forth above in the section entitled Personal Information We Collect.
Basis for Processing: We process personal data:
- When it is necessary for the performance of any contractual relationship we may have with you, such as payment information where it is necessary to conclude a transaction with you;
- Where it is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations, such as tax reporting or for anti-money laundering purposes; or
We may also process your personal data based on your explicit consent (i.e., your freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous consent). Where this is the case, we will clearly request your consent prior to collecting or processing your personal data. You should be aware that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
Data Retention: We will retain personal data you provide to us for as long as you use the Sites or any of our European Services and for a reasonable time thereafter. We will retain automatically collected information for up to twenty-four (24) months and thereafter may store it in aggregate.
We may transfer personal data about you outside the EEA, the United Kingdom or Switzerland and when we do so, we rely on appropriate and suitable safeguards recognized under European law, including:
- Adequacy Decisions: We may transfer personal data about you to countries that European regulators have deemed to adequately safeguard personal data.
- Standard Contractual Clauses: European regulators have adopted Standard Contractual Clauses, which provide safeguards for personal data transferred outside of Europe. We may use these Standard Contractual Clauses when transferring personal data from a country in Europe to a country outside Europe that has not been deemed to adequately safeguard personal data.
Data Processors: We may retain third parties to process or analyze personal data we collect in connection with our European Services. For example, a Site may be maintained or hosted by a third-party service provider, a promotion may be administered by a sales promotion agency, and/or products may be fulfilled by a wholesaler. These suppliers and other third parties who provide services for us are contractually obligated not to use personal data about you except as we authorize.
Profiling: We may analyze personal data we have collected about you to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information that is relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use personal data about you to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
Your Rights: In connection with our European Services, you may be able to request to exercise the following rights in relation to your personal data (subject to certain limitations at law): (a) a right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data about you to which you have previously given consent; (b) a right to object to processing of personal data about you based on our legitimate interest or for the purpose of direct marketing; (c) the right, in some circumstances, to require us to limit the purposes for which we process your personal data; and (d) a right to have any incorrect or incomplete personal data about you rectified.
You may, in some circumstances, also require us to erase your personal data if the continued processing of that personal data is not justified. Please note that some or all of this personal data may be required in order for you to make use of our European Services, including your subscriptions. If you wish to erase this personal data, you may no longer be able to use these features. Any personal data you have shared publicly with others may continue to be publicly visible on the Sites.
You also have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data we have about you, as well as information relating to its processing. In certain circumstances, you have the right to receive a copy of the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format that supports re-use, or to request the transfer of your personal data to another person.
If you wish to exercise one of these rights, please contact us using the contact details set forth below.
