I saw an offensive and/or child-inappropriate advertisement appearing on pogo.tv. Why is this?
We at pogo.tv make it our first priority to provide your child with a fun and rewarding online experience. We appreciate and share your concern about inappropriate advertisements on our Web site and have strict policies regarding the advertising we display.
Unfortunately, it has been brought to our attention that some of our users have become victims of third-party software commonly referred to as "spyware." Internet users can unknowingly install spyware while downloading new software, add-ons or updates through the Internet.
Spyware is a type of data collection program that gathers information about your Internet use and relays it to advertisers and other interested parties. Additionally, some spyware programs can adversely affect the user's computer performance and display unwanted advertisements and pop-up windows during Internet use.
Many of these programs are very sophisticated in making their unwanted ads appear to be part of a regular Web site. This is likely what has happened to your computer while you were viewing pogo.tv.
Why does pogo.tv sometimes ask for my child's email address?
Entry into pogo.tv online contests usually requires an email address that we use only for identifying and notifying the winners. In addition, we offer registration for some of our content applications and gaming sites, such as Game Creator , in order to provide an improved and interactive playing experience where kids can create their own cartoons in Game Creator, and engage in other fun activities like create cartoons in Toon Creator.

Tips to stay safe online
- Never give out your personal information online. Don't give out your real name, address, phone number, school name or passwords to anyone online.
- Keep your online friendships online. Never meet with an online buddy unless your parents or an adult goes with you. Remember that they may not be who they say they are. Someone who says that he or she is a 9 year old could really be an older man or woman.
- Don't open any links or download anything if you don't know who it's from or what it is - your computer may get sick with a virus and not work anymore.
- Stop right away or close the window if you see or read anything online that upsets or scares you and tell your parents or an adult about it.
- Protect your privacy. Never swap or post your personal photographs online.
- Always have good manners and be polite when talking to others online.
