This Policy only applies to our products or services specifically for children under the age of 14, products or services with functional sections specifically for children under the age of 14 or products or services that require the user to enter the birthday, age and other information that can identify the user’s age. For any products or services that cannot identify or actively identify the user’s age, the Medeli Privacy Policy shall be applied/referred to as the case may be. If this Policy is applicable, in case of any inconsistency between this Policy and any terms in the Medeli Privacy Policy, this Policy shall prevail.

Special note:In most cases, we cannot identify whether the specific personal information of the person that uses our products and/or services belongs to any children. For instance, we are unable to judge whether the collected and processed equipment information, personal Internet records and other personal information that do not have obvious age identification features is the children’s personal information. In order to better protect children’s personal information, we will process and protect the personal information identified as your child’s information that is collected during your use/your child’s use of our products and/or services in accordance with this Policy.
