As you are well aware, Pimeyes represents a start-up company and from the day of its restructuring, prioritizes handling data in compliance with relevant laws and ethical standards. Since nowadays we are facing new technologies, applicable laws are evolving as well, thus we are trying to always stand in line and follow the path of transparency, minimization and other main principles, while processing the data. Pimeyes is fully committed to following the law and being ethical, especially in the fast-changing world of technology. We work hard to always follow the rules and laws that apply to these innovations.
It's no secret that handling data comes with various risks, and we're proactive in identifying and addressing these risks in advance. As part of our broader social responsibility, we recognize the vulnerability of children, a fact underscored by laws in various countries. This situation is tricky because different countries have different rules about how old someone must be to give consent. We have to adjust our approach to fit these different rules. Getting permission from a parent or legal guardian also comes with risks and questions. For example, we need to figure out which documents prove legal representation, check if these documents are valid, and decide if we need consent from both parents.
While it is entirely reasonable for a company to enable searches involving children through its search engines, we approach this matter with utmost social responsibility. Right now, there aren't clear rules for how to handle kids' information the best way. Consequently, we have chosen not to offer this service to avoid additional risks. Our decision stems from a cautious approach aimed at protecting children and ensuring their safety.
But, we're still very committed to help government authorities as needed. By refraining from providing the service, we demonstrate our commitment to complying with the law and supporting relevant authorities.
Through this ongoing journey, our goal is not only to offer services but to become partners for every user and the relevant government authorities. We aim to harness our cutting-edge technologies, expertise, and experience for the greater good. This approach involves a meticulous assessment of all risks, whether they are existing challenges or potential future threats, as we strive to leverage our resources for the most beneficial purposes.
