Participants aged below 13
The commencement of the registration procedure on behalf of individuals aged under 13 necessitates action from parents or legal guardians. During the registration process, digital agreement is sought, mandating your assertion as the parent or legal guardian of any individual under 13 whose account you register. This assertion also signifies your agreement with our compilation and utilization of the minor's personal details in alignment with this Privacy Statement. In cases where a registrant under 13 begins the registration procedure without parental or guardian involvement, the session will terminate, and the minor will be informed about the requirement for parental or guardian input to establish an account. During such instances, we abstain from retaining the mobile number, date of birth, or any other personal information of individuals under 13 until a parent or guardian initiates a fresh registration.
PERSONAL INFORMATION USAGE
Our utilization of personal information serves the subsequent objective for the promotion of our offerings and services, and includes tailored advertising based on interests, involving collaboration with external advertising and social media firms to exhibit promotions for our services and others' across the online realm. Our App refrains from employing third-party advertising technologies that target interest-based advertisements towards children under 13 who are logged into our platform.

Even though we furnish a Service for families, our Website functions solely for promotional intentions and is not targeted at individuals under 13 years old.

Once the individual is added as an authorized user to the primary account, Modak will exclusively gather and utilize Personal Information pertaining to the authorized user, solely for the purpose of delivering Modak services. Any such information will not be disclosed to third parties for any purposes that are not mandated or allowed by law.
