Hasbro (which means Hasbro (UK) Limited and its associated companies) are committed to protecting your privacy and treating your personal information in accordance with the Data Protection laws applicable to the UK. This privacy policy explains how your personal information will be handled by us.

What information do we collect & how?

Normally no personal information is collected through this site. However, if you email us to ask a query on askhasbro@hasbro.co.uk or consumer_affairs@hasbro.co.uk you will be providing your information to us for correspondence with us on such issues. We do not normally request any submission of personal information through this site. Further, we may run surveys and competitions which you can choose to participate in. If you do participate in any of these surveys or competitions you will be requested to submit certain information such as name, address, email address, parent's email address, country of residence and/or date of birth.

If you do submit or are requested to submit personal information on this site for any reason your information will be submitted over a secure server.

You should not submit the data unless you are happy to do so.

What do we do with the data?

We use the information we collect about you to answer your enquiries in relation to our website, products or anything else.

When we run surveys or competitions which you can choose to participate in, we use your information to verify your identity and contact you with any aspect of the competition or surveys (for example, in the event you are a competition winner or we needs further details regarding your entries)

We will not use your personal information for marketing to you about Hasbro products/information or any other third party products/information unless you have given us your consent to do so.

Where possible, we try to keep the information you supply to us locally in the UK. However, as part of the services offered through our site (such as competitions and surveys), the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By way of example, this may happen where any of our servers are hosted by one of our Hasbro Group companies in a country outside the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside the EEA or in case of some competitions fulfilment of prizes needs further action from our parent company which is outside the EEA. We also share information between our group companies, which are located in countries worldwide. If you require contact details of our other group companies, please contact us. Corporate Information on Hasbro UK Limited can be found here. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the EEA. If we transfer your information outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

Other than the disclosures referred to in this policy, we will not disclose any personal information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by Court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
