We are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data in accordance with applicable privacy and data protection laws. Further information about how Hasbro uses your personal data can be found in our Privacy Policy. This Cookie Policy sets out the practices in relation to the cookies and other similar technology used by Hasbro on the Website.

1. What are cookies?

The Website uses cookies or other similar technologies to collect information about your access to the Website.

We use the term "cookies" to refer to small text files that are installed on your browser, computer or mobile device to store and sometimes track information about you. They allow the Website to recognize your device. Cookies can serve several purposes: they help us provide you with a better Website, by enabling us to collect statistical data and adapt the content of the Website by monitoring which pages you find useful and which you do not, and by gathering and remembering information about your preferences such as language preferences, passwords and log-in details. A number of cookies the Website uses last only for the duration of your session on the Website and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Website and will last for longer. Please see ‘Hasbro Cookies’ section to check the expiry period of each cookie.

2. Which cookies do we use?

We use cookies on the Website to:

  • recognise the operating system on your device or computer and the type of tablet or smartphone you are using to access the Website;
  • monitor Website performance and improve Website services;
  • remember that you have visited us before. This means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive and, for example, make sure we have enough capacity for the number of users that visit the Website.
  • customise elements of the layout and/or content of the Website;
  • monitor use of features and services, traffic and demographic trends, and browser versions; and
  • collect anonymous statistical information about how you use the Website (including how long you spend on the Website and the pages you visit within the Website) and where you have come to the Website from, so that we can improve the Website and learn which parts of the Website are most popular with visitors. We may share anonymous statistical information with carefully selected third parties such as our digital agencies.

Some of the cookies used on the Website are set by us ("first party cookies") and some are set by third parties ("third party cookies") who are delivering services on our behalf.

When you visit a page on the Website it may generate any of the following types of cookies:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are required to save your session and to carry out other activities that are strictly necessary for the operation of the Website. They enable us to provide you with services you have specifically asked for and are essential for you to move around the Website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, such as placing items in a shopping basket, cannot be provided to you. We also use security cookies to ensure the security of the Website. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Website to you, you cannot refuse them.

You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings, as described below in ‘Managing your cookies’. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Website.

Functionality Cookies

Subject to your consent, we use functional cookies to allow the Website to remember choices you make on the Website (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) to provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. They also do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you’ve been on the Internet besides our websites.

Performance Cookies

Subject to your consent, these cookies collect information about your visit and use of the Website, for instance, which pages you visit most often, and if you get error messages from such web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated on an anonymous basis and is only used to improve how the Website works. We also use these cookies to understand how our media campaigns work. This information is used to evaluate and improve the content of the Website and our campaigns and ultimately to improve user experience.

Analytics and Customisation Cookies

Subject to your consent, we use these cookies, like Google Analytics, to help us understand how users access and use our services. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your internet service provider, your web browser, the time spent on web pages, the links clicked and the advertisements viewed on those pages. We use this information to improve the Services and your experience, to see which areas and features of our services are popular, and for which visitors, and to count visits.

Google provides tools which allows you to manage the collection and use of certain information by Google Analytics at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Social Networking Cookies/Social Plugins

Subject to your consent, we use social sharing cookies to enable you to share any content of interest on social networks and sometimes we may present some targeted advertisements on these networks based on your interaction with the Website.

Websites and applications owned or operated by other parties may display ads from us that are targeted to reach people (or people similar to people) on those websites or applications who have visited our Website or are also identified on one of more of our databases. This is done by us uploading a customer list to the other party or incorporating a pixel from the other party on our Website, and the other party matching common factors between our data and the data of the other party. For instance, we incorporate the Facebook pixel on our Website and may share your email address with Facebook as part of Facebook Custom Audiences. We may also work with partners to deliver matched ads based on data about you and others in those partners' own databases.

You can withdraw your consent to the use of cookies for the future at any time. To learn how to do it, please refer to 'Managing your cookies' for further information. Please note, however, that blocking or deleting cookies used on the Website may affect the availability and functionality of the Website.


3. What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to the Website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like clear GIFs (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "web beacons"), browser analysis tools and server logs for similar purposes as described in this Cookie Policy and we may include them on our sites, in marketing email messages or our newsletter and affiliated websites to determine whether messages have been opened and whether links have been clicked on. The information provided in this Cookie Policy about cookies also applies to these technologies. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Clear GIFs: Clear GIFs (or "web beacons") are small electronic images that are placed on a web page or in an email message. We use clear GIFs to monitor user behavior, deliver cookies, collect information, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and to tell if a recipient has opened and acted upon an email.

Log Files: Log files record the Website activity on our services and enable us to gather statistics about our users' browsing habits. These entries help Hasbro determine (among other things) how many and how often users have accessed or used our Website, which pages of our Website they've visited, and other similar data.

Do Not Track (DNT) Signals: Your browser may allow you to set a Do Not Track (DNT) signal indicating that you do not wish your online activity to be tracked. Currently, our system does not support and cannot act on DNT signal headers that we may receive. However, the choices that we provide you concerning collection and use of your personal data will continue to operate as described in the Privacy Policy and this Cookie Policy.
