I. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The categories of personal information we collect depend on whether you are:
• A visitor of the www.miko.ai website (“Site Visitor”)
• An individual who purchases one of our products online (“Customer”)
• A parent, guardian or other representative who registers the device (“Authorized User”)
• The user of the device, who is either the Authorized User or the Authorized User’s child or an
individual who interacts with our products in a store (“Primary User”)
• An individual who was invited by an Authorized User to interact with our services, for example if
you were invited to video chat through our services (“Other User”) (collectively, “Users”), and the requirements of applicable law.
Information You Provide to Us
When you purchase from us or create a Customer account, we may collect your contact number, email address, shipping address and credit card details. If you are an Authorized User and create a profile for your child to use the Miko Robot, you have the option of providing additional details such as your child’s name, photograph, date of birth, and, likes and dislikes.
Your conversations with Miko.
The Miko’s Primary User will also provide information to us through their interactions and communications with the Miko robot. This information includes the Primary User’s age (used to provide an age-appropriate experience), likes and dislikes, and demographic information. This information may be asked for by Miko directly or inferred by the Primary User’s behavior.
You can upload the contact information, such as name, email address, and phone number of Other Users so that you can use Miko to initiate a video chat with them. Only upload the contact information of Other Users with their consent.
When you use our Services, Miko may allow you to video chat with other users using the camera on your device. If you choose to use the video chat and related features, the audio and video of you and your surroundings will be captured by us, and other users will be able to see and hear you.
Your Communications with Us.
We collect personal information from you such as email address, phone number, or mailing address when you request information about our Services, request customer or technical support, apply for a job, or otherwise communicate with us.
We may contact you to participate in surveys. If you decide to participate, you may be asked to provide certain information which may include personal information.
Social Media Content.
We may offer forums, blogs, or social media pages. Any content you provide on these channels will be considered “public” and is not subject to privacy protections.
Registration for Sweepstakes or Contests.
We may run sweepstakes and contests. Contact information you provide may be used to reach you about the sweepstakes or contest and for other promotional, marketing and business purposes, if permitted by law. In some jurisdictions, we are required to publicly share information of winners.
Information from individuals who may interact with Miko.
Miko is primarily intended for purely personal, household use. As part of its regular functioning, Miko will also detect and analyze the faces and voices of individuals, other than your child, that are in your home, and this processing may affect these individuals’ privacy and data protection rights. The Miko robot will only search for faces when it is awoken from sleep modes, or at certain predesignated events, such as when you tap on Miko, shake Miko, or say “Hello, Miko.” Then, the Miko will only recognize faces that have been registered with the mobile app.
In addition, the Miko robot also continually listens for its trigger words, “Hello, Miko,” that will enable listening mode, and will continually record audio for a ten-second window after a Primary User stops talking. You can deactivate Miko’s audio scanning while deactivated by pushing the back button on the Miko’s belly.
You (not Miko) are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws when you use Miko. Depending on your use of Miko, you may need to notify individuals that may interact with Miko that their faces or voices may be detected and obtain any consent required by law.
Information Collected Automatically or From Others
The Miko Robot will collect information about the environment in which it is deployed. For example, the Miko collects information about its movement throughout the environment to create a location ‘map’ of the space accessible to the Miko. The spatial map is a digital representation of the Miko’s domain and may not include recognizable images from the location environment.
Automatic Data Collection.
We may collect certain information automatically when you use the Services. This information may include your Internet protocol (IP) address, user settings, MAC address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, mobile advertising and other unique identifiers, details about your browser, operating system or device, approximate location information, Internet service provider, pages that you visit before, during and after using the Services, information about the links you click, and other information about how you use the Services. Information we collect may be associated with accounts and other devices.

Cookies, Pixel Tags/Web Beacons, Analytics Information, and Interest-Based Advertising technologies.
Cookies are small text files placed in Site Visitors’ computer browsers to store their preferences. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies. However, if you do that, the Services may not work properly.
• Pixel Tags/Web Beacons.
A pixel tag (also known as a web beacon) is a piece of code embedded in the Services that collects information about Site Visitors’ engagement on that web page. The use of a pixel allows us to record, for example, that a Site Visitor has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular advertisement.
We may also use Google Analytics and other service providers to collect information regarding Site visitor behavior and Site Visitor demographics on our Services. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt out of Google’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Services by going to http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.Biometric information. We will not collect biometric data that uniquely identifies you without your explicit prior consent.
As a user of Miko , you agree that we may collect the relevant User’s face, voice and emotional states in order to help the User securely log into our services and give you a better experience with our products. A User’s biometric data is used only to identify the User, and to securely allow the User to access our product. Biometric data we collect is accessible only to us and not with partner companies unless you have given your consent for the same. We do not sell, lease, trade, or otherwise profit from biometric data; provided, however, that we and our vendors may be paid for a User’s use of the Services that utilize such biometric data. We will store biometric data using industry standard security for sensitive data, for no more than three years from the last used date you accessed our product, after which we will destroy the data. You may delete your biometric data from our systems at any time through our mobile app or by contacting us as described in “Contact Us” below.
