No Personal Data is transferred outside the EEA and Switzerland (European Economic Area which is all the EU Member States + Lichtenstein, Norway and Iceland).

We do not require any information regarding minor children in order to provide the Zyalin Services. To prevent inadvertent disclosure of Personal Data, assist in effective use of information, and ensure appropriate use of the Zyalin Services, we strongly encourage the parent or guardian of any child under the age of 18 to install the mobile application on each family member’s device, and to curate your child’s interaction with the Zyalin Services.
