Update to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy

On 28 September 2019, we’re updating our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. You can get a preview of these updates before they go live. If you keep using Pinterest after 28 September 2019, you're letting us know that you're OK with the updates.

What's changing?

In the Privacy Policy

  • We no longer collect payment information to purchase items. Instead, you simply go directly to a retailer’s website to make a purchase.
  • We love that young people are finding inspiration on Pinterest! But we’re no longer allowing people to get verifiable parental consent to create new accounts. From now on, you’ll have to follow the age of digital consent guidelines set in your country
  • We've added more details about data we collect and how it's used, along with a new way to control whether it's used to personalise advertising on other sites or apps you might visit
  • We've added additional information for our California residents

In the Cookie Policy

  • Updated the categories of cookies that we use
  • Added the ability to opt out of setting cookies that enable Pinterest to market to you outside Pinterest
  • Added links to global tools that give you more choices for how cookies are set

Does this affect the way I use Pinterest?
Not at all – your Pinterest experience will stay the same.

What if I'm not OK with the changes?
If you’re not OK with the changes, you can adjust your personalisation choices in your settings. While we’d hate to see you go, if you're still not OK with the changes, you can close your account. But before you do that, please get in touch with us so we can answer any questions you have.

Remember, if you keep using Pinterest after 28 September 2019, you're letting us know that you're OK with these updates.
