All Friends and Family who are identified as “travel with,” “same cabin” or “same account” on Your Folio will automatically be pre-loaded as contacts.

11. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling our customer service department at 1-888-227-6482. In the unlikely event that Carnival's customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint You may have to Your satisfaction (or if Carnival has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with You after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this License, and will be administered by the AAA in Miami, Florida. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this License will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
12.MISCELLANEOUS. The following provisions survive termination of this License:
12.1 Governing Law, Limitation on Actions. This site is controlled and operated by Carnival from its offices within the State of Florida, United States of America. Carnival makes no representation that materials in the site are appropriate or available for use in other locations. These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Miami-Dade County and You hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action
12.2 Severability. If any provision of this License is held to be invalid or unenforceable with respect to a party, the remainder of this License, or the application of such provision to persons other than those to whom it is held invalid or unenforceable shall not be affected and each remaining provision of this License shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
12.3 Waiver. Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or require performance of an obligation under this License shall not affect a party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall the waiver of a breach constitute waiver of any subsequent breach.
12.4 Modification or Amendment. Carnival reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, at any time and from time to time, the App (or any function or feature of the App or any part thereof, including but not limited to rates and charges) with or without notice. You agree that Carnival will not be liable to You or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service. This License may be updated or changed from time to time, as determined by Carnival in its sole discretion. Carnival will provide notice of changes in the License in any manner acceptable by law, including by posting them to our onboard website or at such other website as Carnival may designate. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon such notice, and You waive any right You may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your use of the App following updates or a change to this License constitutes Your acceptance of those changes; therefore, You should frequently review this license to understand the terms and conditions that apply to Your use of the Service. If You do not agree to the revisions, You must terminate Your use of the App immediately.
12.5 Survival. Any provisions of this License which by their express language or by their context are intended to survive the termination of this License shall survive such termination.
12.6 Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as explicitly provided in this License or in the Related Agreements, nothing contained in this License is intended or shall be construed to confer upon any person (other than the parties hereto) any rights, benefits or remedies of any kind or character, or to create any obligations or liabilities of a party to any such person.
12.7 No Transfer by You. You may not rent, lease, lend, sublicense, assign or transfer the Application, this License or any of the rights granted hereunder. Any attempted transfer in contravention of this provision shall be null and void and of no force or effect. These obligations survive termination of this License.

The provisions contained in this Privacy Notice supersede all previous notices or policies regarding our privacy practices with respect to this App. We encourage you to check this Application frequently to see the current Privacy Notice to be informed of how Carnival is committed to protecting your information and providing you with improved content in this Application in order to enhance your mobile cruise planning experience. If we make material changes to this Privacy Notice we will post the revised Privacy Notice and the revised effective date on this site.
13. Children's Policy
We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections with respect to personal information we may collect from children on our sites and applications. Children under 13 ("Child” or "Children") may download the Application but cannot provide information, make purchases, or engage the chat function without the explicit authorization of a parent or legal guardian. Consistent with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), when we determine that the user of an application is age 12 or under, we collect only as much personal information as necessary to be able to provide the informational functions of the application for the Child passenger and notify the parent or guardian associated with the Child on the ticket contract. We require a parent or guardian to verify consent by credit card charge or other payment method (with a nominal charge involved) to authorize the Child to chat with others through the Application, make purchases, or provide additional personal information. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information from a Child under 13 without necessary parental consent so that we can delete this information as soon as possible.
When a parent or guardian provides consent for a Child under 13 to use the Application, the following policies and practices apply:
How a Child's Personal Information is Collected. During the registration process, we may ask the Child's month and day of birth and folio number. During the sailing, we may collect and use facial recognition data, which will be discarded within one month after the sailing or earlier upon request. We strongly advise children never to provide any personal information in their usernames. If a parent or guardian provides consent for the Child to use the chat and purchase functions, we will also collect the information the Child provides in chat content as well as a record of purchase transactions.
How a Child's Personal Information is Used. We use the personal information collected to provide the functions of the Application, so that the Child can view the shipboard schedule, select activities. With the parent's consent, the Child may also make on-board purchases, and use the Chat function to communicate with Family members who have been approved by the parent and identified in "Contacts."
How Parents May Access and Control a Child's Information. At any time, parents can refuse to permit Carnival to collect further personal information from their Child in association with a particular account, and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that account. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account or other service.
Where a Child has created an account, we use two methods to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their Children.
(1) Parents can request access to and delete their Child's personal information by logging on to the Child's account through the Child's Device. Parents will need their Child's username and password.
(2) Parents can contact Guest Services to request access to, change, or delete their Child's personal information by visiting the Guest Services desk on board. If you believe your child is participating in an activity that collects personal information and you or another parent/guardian have NOT given consent for, please feel free to contact us Guest Services.
