Update to our privacy and cookie policies

On September 28, 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 September 28, 2019, you're letting us know that you're okay with the updates.

What's changing?

In the Privacy Policy

  • We no longer collect payment information to purchase items. Instead, you simply directly go 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. Starting now, you’ll have to follow the age of digital consent guidelines set in your country
  • We added more details about data we collect and how it's used, along with a new way to control whether it is used to personalize advertising on other sites or apps you might visit
  • We 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 off of 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 okay with the changes?
If you’re not okay with the changes, you can adjust your personalization choices in your settings. While we’d hate to see you go, if you're still not okay 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 September 28, 2019, you're letting us know that you're okay with these updates.
