Like most companies, we may use cookies and similar technologies on our Platform. The technologies we use include the following: 

  • Cookies which are small data files stored on your browser or device. 
  • Pixels, which are small images on a web page or in an email. Pixels collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies and be used to track your use of or interaction with one or more websites. 
  • Local storage, which allows data to be stored locally on your browser or device and includes HTML5 local storage and browser cache. 

We refer to these technologies collectively as “cookies”. You can find information about cookies and how they work at 


Some cookies are referred to as “first party” which means they are placed by the website you are visiting – so in our case first party cookies and pixels are placed by our Platform. “Third party” cookies are placed by other organizations (with our permission) via our Platform. They work by collecting information from your device and passing it directly back to the third party. For example, we partner with third-party analytics providers that set cookies when you visit our Platform. 


We may use cookies for a number of reasons, like helping us see which features of our Platform are most popular, counting visitors to a webpage, improving our users’ experience, keeping our Platform secure, and generally providing you with a better experience. The cookies we use fall into one of the following categories: 



Why we use these Cookies

These cookies allow KINO or third party partners to collect information to measure advertising performance or show you relevant advertising on other sites, apps or platforms, including social media. 



These cookies allow KINO or third party partners to measure and analyze performance and improve our Platform and services.

We will always set our essential cookies and if you block these cookies using browser settings you may not be able to use certain parts of our Platform. 


Certain features of the Platform may allow you to upload content (e.g., usernames, first name, last name, a profile picture, biography, chat conversations) directly to the Platform (“Your Content” or “UGC”). We or others may store, display, reproduce, publish, or otherwise use UGC, and may or may not attribute it to you. Others may also have access to UGC and may have the ability to share it with third parties. If you choose to submit UGC to any public area of the Platform, your UGC will be considered “public” and will be accessible by anyone, including KINO. 

Please note that we do not control who will have access to the information that you choose to make available to others, and cannot ensure that parties who have access to such information will respect your privacy or keep it secure. We are not responsible for the privacy or security of any information that you make publicly available on the features permitting creation of UGC or what others do with information you share with them. We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any such UGC that you disclose or receive from third parties. 


Certain features of the Platform may permit you to initiate interactions between the Platform and third-party services or platforms, such as social networks (“Social Features”). Social Features include features that allow you to click and access KINO’s pages on certain third-party platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Discord and from there to “like” or “share” our content on those platforms. Use of Social Features may entail a third party’s collection and/or use of your data. If you use Social Features or similar third-party services, information you post or otherwise make accessible may be publicly displayed by the third-party service you are using. Both KINO and the third party may have access to information about you and your use of both the Platform and the third-party service. For more information on third-party websites and platforms, see Section 7. 


Our Platform may contain links to other online platforms operated by third parties. We do not control such other online platforms and are not responsible for their content, their privacy policies, or their use of your information.

Any information submitted by you directly to these third parties or through the use of third-party wallets to conduct transactions on the Platform is subject to the applicable third party’s privacy policy. 


Our platform is meant for individuals above the age of 16. We do not seek or knowingly collect any personal information about children under 13 years of age. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected information about a child under 13 years of age, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age who has provided us with their personal information, you may contact us using the below information to request that it be deleted.

    • categories of and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you;

You may make a request described above by contacting us (See Section 12. How To Contact Us).

You may designate, in writing or through a power of attorney document, an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your rights.

Sharing for Direct Marketing Purposes 

California law permits users in California to request certain details about how their “personal information” (as defined in California Civil Code Section 1798.83) is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. With your consent or at your direction, we may share certain “personal information” about you with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. For example, if you visit our booth at an event and provide consent, we will disclose your email address to the event organizer. Accordingly, KINO qualifies for the exemption available to companies that seek opt in consent prior to disclosing for marketing purposes. 

Users Under 18 

Any California residents under the age of 18 who have registered to use the Platform, and who have posted content or information on the Platform, can request that such information be removed from the Platform by contacting us at the e-mail or address set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below. Such a request must state that they personally posted such content or information and detail where the content or information is posted. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it so the minor cannot be individually identified. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third-parties may have republished the post and archived copies of it may be stored by search engines and others that we do not control. 

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA or similar laws of other jurisdictions, as applicable.
