Special and/or sensitive personal data we process

Our website and/or service do not intend to collect data about visitors under the age of 16 unless they have permission from their parents or guardian. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is over 16. We, therefore, recommend that parents get involved in their children's online activities to prevent data from being collected about children without parental consent. If you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without that permission, please contact us at StoryForgers@proton.me, and we will delete this information.

- StoryForgers analyzes your behavior on the website to improve the website and tailor the offering of products and services to your preferences.
