Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 8th, 2021

Funko, LLC and its subsidiaries (“Funko,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) are committed to providing a fun, entertaining, and safe experience for our customers. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information in connection with the Funko.com website, the Funko mobile application and the following product specific websites managed by Funko: www.funko.com, www.funko-shop.com, www.shop.funko.com, www.funkoeurope.com and www.loungefly.com (collectively the “Sites”). This Privacy Policy applies whether you access the Sites through a personal computer, mobile device, or any other means. This Privacy Policy is not, however, a contract and does not create any legal rights or obligations.

Some websites, such as fan operated sites like www.funkofanatics.com, and stores, such as online and physical resellers of our products, use our name or our products in connection with their services, but are not controlled by us. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these separately operated websites and stores, and Funko is not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties.

Please read this Privacy Policy and our Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) carefully. We will update this Privacy Policy from time to time.  When we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will change the date at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will take appropriate measures to notify you of these changes, such as by prominent posting to our Sites.

Note for International Visitors: Personal information may be transferred to, stored and processed in a country other than the one in which it was collected. For example, the Sites are primarily hosted in and provided from the United States. Please note the country to which personal data is transferred may not provide the same level of protection for personal information as the country from which it was transferred.

WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Other than as set out in the Region Specific Disclosures, for the purposes of this Privacy Policy,  “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual. It does not include information that is deidentified or aggregated such that it is not reasonably capable of being associated with you.  This Privacy Policy does not restrict or limit our collection and use of aggregated or deidentified information, and we reserve the right to share such information with potential partners or other third parties without restriction.

COOKIES

We and our third-party providers may use (i) cookies or small data files that are stored on your computer and (ii) other, similar technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to automatically collect personal information. For example, our Sites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to collect and view reports about the traffic on our online services. You can obtain more information on the use of Google Analytics by visiting Google’s privacy policy here and you can view Google’s currently available opt-out options here.

If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies.  Please note that doing so may negatively impact your experience using our website, as some features and offerings may not work properly or at all.  Depending on your device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies. In addition, if you want to reject cookies across all your browsers and devices, you will need to do so on each browser on each device you actively use. You may also set your email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.

Please note certain of our third-party providers may directly collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our website for purposes of providing online behavioral or interest-based advertising services to third parties. We support the self-regulatory principles for online behavioral advertising (“Principles”) published by the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). These Principles allow you to exercise choice regarding the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites for online interest-based advertising purposes. More information about these Principles can be found at www.aboutads.info. If you want to opt out of receiving online interest-based advertisements on your internet browser from advertisers and third parties that participate in the DAA program and perform advertising-related services for us and our advertising partners, please follow the instructions at www.aboutads.info/choices, or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ to place an opt-out cookie on your device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertisements.  Opt-out cookies only work on the internet browser and device they are downloaded onto.  If you want to opt out of interest-based advertisements across all your browsers and devices, you will need to opt out on each browser on each device you actively use.  If you delete cookies on your device generally, you will need to opt out again.

If you want to opt out of receiving online interest-based advertisements on mobile apps, please follow the instructions at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices.

Please note that when you opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us on our website or third-party websites.  It means that the online ads that you do see from DAA program participants should not be based on your interests.  We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.  In addition, third parties may still use cookies to collect information about your use of our online services, including for analytics and fraud prevention as well as any other purpose permitted under the DAA’s Principles.

CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not knowingly collect or solicit any personal information from anyone under the age of 13 on or through the Services. In the event that we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under 13, please contact us by using the contact details set out at the end of this this privacy notice.

PERSONAL INFORMATION CORRECTIONS AND UPDATES

You may request to view your personal information, or delete or modify incorrect parts thereof by emailing us at support@funko.com. Please note that we may be required to decline your deletion request, or only honor your deletion request after a certain period of time, for business or legal reasons. In response to a deletion request, we may delete the personal information or deidentify/aggregate the personal information so that it can no longer be reasonably connected to you. When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We reserve the right and may be required by law to verify the identity of any person making a request to access, modify or delete personal information; provided, however, that we will have no liability of any kind resulting from false or erroneous requests by you or any change or deletion made in accordance with your request.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND STORES

Some websites, such as fan operated sites like www.funkofanatics.com, and online stores, such as resellers of our products, may use our name or our products in connection with their services. In addition, the Sites may contain links to other websites or stores.

We do not control, are not responsible for, and make no representations whatsoever regarding such other websites or stores, or the products and services offered by or through such third-party websites or stores, even those with which Funko may have an affiliation. If you decide to access such third-party websites or stores, you do so at your own risk. You should carefully review the privacy policy and terms of any such website or store.

The Sites may also include YouTube videos, social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, and widgets, such as the “Share This” button or interactive mini-programs that run on the Sites. Your interactions with these features are also governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

PRIVACY DISCLOSURES FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

This section applies to you if you are a resident of the state of California and provides additional information about how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information of individual residents of the state of California within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). In addition to our personal information processing activities relating to our Sites, this section also addresses our personal information processing activities offline, such as in connection with our California-based retail store.

For purposes of this section, “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. It does not include information that is made publicly available from government records, that is deidentified or aggregated such that it is not capable of being associated with you, or that is otherwise excluded from the CCPA’s scope. This section also does not apply to information relating to our employees, contractors, applicants and other personnel.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

In the last 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information:

  • Identifiers, such as name, Account email address and password, IP address and other unique personal identifiers;
  • California Customer Records (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)), such as email address, telephone number, fax number, billing address, shipping address, birthday (month/day), currency or notification preferences, responses to interest-based questions, Funko Fan Club membership and payment information (such as cardholder name, billing address, credit card number, expiration date, authentication code, check routing number, account number or related information);

  • Sensory Information, such as audio recordings, photographs and video footage you choose to provide, or we otherwise record as permitted by law;
  • Professional/Employment Information, such as your company name;

  • Inferences, such as deriving products of interest from other personal information we have collected about you.

We collect this information directly from you, from your browser or device when you interact with our Sites, from third-party service providers, such as payment processors, point-of-sale vendors, and e-commerce platforms, from third-party platforms such as social media websites and from other publicly available sources. For more information about the personal information we collect and how we collect it, please refer to the Personal Information We Collect section of this Privacy Policy.

We collect personal information from and about you for a variety of purposes. For example, we use personal information to create and maintain your Accounts and Subscriptions with us; to communicate with you; to facilitate, process and fulfill orders you place with us or the services you request; to conduct surveys, sweepstakes, contests and other promotions; to provide in-store features, such as our photobooths; to analyze and improve the use of our Sites; to deliver marketing communications and personalized and non-personalized advertising, and to improve our products and services. For more information about our use of personal information, please refer to the Our Use of Personal Information section of this Privacy Policy.

DISCLOSURE AND “SALE” OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We share personal information with third parties for business purposes or we may sell your personal information to third parties, subject to your right to opt-out of those sales (please refer to the Your California Privacy Rights section below). The categories of third parties to whom we disclose your personal information may include our subsidiaries, our service providers that perform services or functions on our behalf, marketing providers, and certain third parties where you have provided consent or where we are required by law.

As is common practice among companies that operate online, we also allow certain third-party providers to collect information about consumers directly through our websites and other online services for purposes of analyzing and optimizing our services, delivering ads, providing content and ads that are more relevant, measuring statistics and the success of ad campaigns, and detecting and reporting fraud. To the extent this practice is interpreted to constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please refer to the Submitting Requests section below regarding your right to opt-out.

For more information about how we share personal information, please refer to the Our Disclosure of Personal Information section of our Privacy Policy.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

As a California resident, you may be able to request to exercise the following rights in relation to the personal information about you that we have collected (subject to certain limitations at law):

You also have the right to be free from discrimination for exercising these rights. However, please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products and services or engage with you in the same manner.

In addition, if you have an established customer relationship with us for personal, family or household purposes, you may also have the right under California’s “Shine the Light” law to request:

  • A list of the categories of certain personal information that we have disclosed to third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes; and

SUBMITTING REQUESTS

To Exercise Your Right to Know, Right to Deletion or “Shine the Light” Right. To exercise your right to know, right to deletion or “Shine the Light” right, please submit a request specifying the right you wish to exercise by:

Before processing your request, we will need to verify your identity and confirm you are a resident of the State of California. In order to verify your identity, we will generally require you to (1) log into your account if you have one, or (2) the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems.

    We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "Right to Opt In") from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age. Please contact us at support@funko.com to inform us if you or your minor child are under the age of 16.

    PRIVACY DISCLOSURES FOR THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA, UNITED KINGDOM AND SWITZERLAND

    While we are primarily based in the United States, Funko maintains operations in Europe and may direct our services to individuals located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United Kingdom and Switzerland, including through our European-specific Sites like www.funkoeurope.com (collectively, our “European Services”).  The following disclosures (“Privacy Disclosures”) apply to our processing of personal data in connection with our European Services.

    Funko UK, LTD is the data controller responsible for the processing of personal data in connection with our European Services. This means that we determine and are responsible for how your personal information is used.

    Personal Data:  When we use the term “personal data” in this section, we mean information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

    1. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT FROM YOU WHEN YOU USE THE FUNKO EUROPEAN SERVICES, AND HOW WE USE IT

    We collect the categories of personal data that you voluntarily submit directly to us when you use the European Services, as set forth in our Privacy Policy under the section entitled Personal Information We Collect.

    The table at Annex 1 sets out in detail the categories of personal data we collect about you and how we use that information when you use the European Services, as well as the legal basis which we rely on to process the personal information and recipients of that personal information.

    1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AUTOMATICALLY

    We also automatically collect personal information indirectly about how you access and use the European Services, and information about the device you use to access the European Services. For example, we may collect:

    • information about the features you use and the pages you view on the European Services;
    • information about your device (such as your IP address, device identifier, device type, model and manufacturer); and
    • information about your usage patterns (such as how often you use the Funko European Services and your language settings).

    We use this information to provide you the features and functionality of the European Services, to monitor and improve the European Services and to develop new services.

    The table at Annex 2 sets out further information about the categories of personal information we collect about you automatically and how we use that information. The table also lists the legal basis which we rely on to process the personal information and recipients of that personal information.

    We may link or combine the personal information we collect about you and the information we collect automatically.

    We may anonymise and aggregate any of the personal information we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymised information for purposes that include testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving the Funko European Services. We may also share such anonymised and aggregated information with others.

    1. HOW LONG WILL WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

    We will usually store the personal information we collect about you for no longer than necessary for the purposes set out in Annex 1 and Annex 2, in accordance with our legal obligations and legitimate business interests.

    The criteria used to determine the period for which personal information about you will be retained varies depending on the legal basis under which we process the personal information:

    • Legitimate Interests. Where we are processing personal information based on our legitimate interests, we generally will retain such information for a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of data subjects.
    • Consent. Where we are processing personal information based on your consent, we generally will retain the information until you withdraw your consent, or otherwise for the period of time necessary to fulfil the underlying agreement with you or provide you with the applicable service for which we process that personal information.
    • Contract. Where we are processing personal information based on contract, we generally will retain the information for the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the statute of limitations for legal claims that could arise from the contractual relationship.
    • Legal Obligation. Where we are processing personal information based on a legal obligation, we generally will retain the information for the period of time necessary to fulfil the legal obligation.
    • Legal Claim. We may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period where we face threat of legal claim.  In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.

    In all cases, in addition to the purposes and legal bases, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, as well as the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information.

    1. RECIPIENTS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

    In addition to the recipients listed in Annexes 1 and 2, we may also share your personal information with the following (as required in accordance with the uses set out in Annexes 1 and 2):

    • Service providers and advisors: we may share your personal information with third party vendors and other service providers that perform services for us or on our behalf, which may include providing professional services, such as legal and accounting services, mailing, email or chat services, fraud prevention, web hosting, or providing analytic services.
    • Affiliates. Other companies owned by or under common ownership as Funko, including our subsidiaries (i.e., any organisation we own or control) and our ultimate holding company (i.e., any organisation that owns or controls us) and any subsidiaries it owns. These companies will use your personal information in the same way as we can under these Privacy Disclosures.
    • Purchasers and third parties in connection with a business transaction: your personal information may be disclosed to third parties in connection with a transaction, such as a merger, sale of assets or shares, reorganisation, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business.
    • Law enforcement, regulators and other parties for legal reasons: we may share your personal information with third parties as required by law or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (i) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (ii) detect and investigate illegal activities and breaches of agreements, including our Terms; and/or (iii) exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Funko, its users or others.
    1. MARKETING AND ADVERTISING

    From time to time we may contact you with information about our services, including sending you marketing messages and asking for your feedback on our services.

    Most marketing messages we send will be by email. For some marketing messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you.

    We will only send you marketing messages if you have given us your consent to do so. You can withdraw your consent at a later date by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing emails or by updating your preferences via your account on the Website.

    1. STORING AND TRANSFERRING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

    Security. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change or damage. All personal information we collect will be stored by our cloud hosting provider on secure servers. We will never send you unsolicited emails or contact you by phone requesting credit or debit card information or national identification numbers.

    International Transfers of your Personal Information. The personal information we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in where we and our third party service providers have operations. If you are located in the EEA, United Kingdom or Switzerland, your personal information may be processed outside of those regions, including in the United States.

    In the event of such a transfer, we ensure that: (i) the personal information is transferred to countries recognised as offering an equivalent level of protection; or (ii) the transfer is made pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.

    If you wish to enquire further about these safeguards used, please contact us using the details set out at the end of these Privacy Disclosures.

    1. PROFILING

    We may analyze personal data we have collected about you to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information that is relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use personal data about you to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.

    1. YOUR RIGHTS IN RESPECT OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

    1. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES USED ON OUR EUROPEAN SERVICES

    Our European Services uses cookies and similar technologies such as pixels and Local Storage Objects (LSOs) like HTML5 (together "cookies") to distinguish you from other users of our European Services. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our European Services and also allows us to monitor and analyse how you use and interact with our European Services so that we can continue to improve our European Services. It also helps us and our advertising partners to determine products and services that may be of interest to you, in order to serve you targeted advertisements.

    Cookies are pieces of code that allow for personalisation of our European Services experience by saving your information such as user ID and other preferences. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes.

    We use the following types of cookies:

    • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our European Services. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our European Services.
    • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our European Services when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our European Services works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
    • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our European Services. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
    • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our European Services, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our European Services and the advertising displayed on it, and the marketing messages we send to you more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties who provide services to us for this purpose.
    • Third party cookies. Please be aware that advertisers and other third parties may use their own cookies tags when you click on an advertisement or link on our European Services. These third parties are responsible for setting out their own cookie and privacy policies.

    Please see Annex 3 for more information about the cookies we use on the European Services.

    Other than strictly necessary cookies, which are required for the operation of our European Services, we will only place cookies on your device if you give us your consent to do so. We will ask you to tell us which cookies you agree to receive when you first access our European Services.

    Most browsers also allow you to change your cookie settings to block certain cookies. Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies.  Please note that if you choose to refuse all cookies you may not be able to use the full functionality of our European Services. These settings will typically be found in the "options" or "preferences" menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the "Help" option in your browser for more details.

    If you would like to find out more about cookies and other similar technologies, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org or the Network Advertising Initiative's online sources at www.networkadvertising.org. We and our third-party partners may also use cookies and tracking technologies for advertising purposes. 

    Please note that deleting or blocking cookies may not be effective for all types of tracking technologies, such as Local Storage Objects (LSOs) like HTML5.

    1. TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES USED IN OUR EMAILS

    Our emails may contain tracking pixels that identify if and when you have opened an email that we have sent you, how many times you have read it and whether you have clicked on any links in that email. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our marketing email campaigns, make the emails we send to you more relevant to your interests and to understand if you have opened and read any important administrative emails we might send you.

    Most popular email clients will allow you to block these pixels by disabling certain external images in emails. You can do this through the settings on your email client – these generally give you the option of choosing whether emails will display "remote images", "remote content" or "images" by default.

    Some browsers also give you the option of downloading and installing extensions that block pixels and other tracking technologies.

    1. CHANGES TO THESE PRIVACY DISCLOSURES

    We may update these Privacy Disclosures from time to time and so you should review this page periodically. When we change these Privacy Disclosures in a material way, we will update the "last modified" date at the end of these Privacy Disclosures. Changes to these Privacy Disclosures are effective when they are posted on this page.

    1. NOTICE TO YOU

    If we need to provide you with information about something, whether for legal, marketing or other business-related purposes, we will select what we believe is the best way to get in contact with you. We will usually do this through email or by placing a notice on the European Services. The fact that we may send notices to you will not stop you from being able to opt out of certain types of contact as described in this privacy policy.
