Niantic games require certain personal information in order to operate in accordance with the Terms of Service. If you consent to your child’s use of the game, Niantic will collect certain personal information about your child:
- We will collect and use your child’s device location information. Our games are location-based; the core feature is to provide a gameplay experience tied to a player’s real world location, so we need to know where your child is in order to operate these games for them and to plan the location of in-game resources (for example PokéStops within Pokémon GO).
- We will ask your child to create an in-game username, so we can make their game account, and your child can personalize their experience.
