Safety

Do you have advertising on Beano.com? Why?

Just as the Beano Comic has always been, we are partially funded by brands who want to offer their products and services to our audience. As always, and unlike many digital destinations, we handpick the advertisers to make sure kids only see the best and most appropriate things for them.

Will you collect information about me or my child?

We are truly committed to children's online privacy issues and enabling a safe environment for them in the digital space, this is why we are a member of PRIVO's COPPA Safe Harbor program.

We collect cookies to help us create a better service and to serve up better entertainment for kids. We do not use cookie tracking technologies for the purpose of online behavioural advertisements - see our cookie policy.

What is 3rd Party Content?

We have scoured the web to find the best videos, animated GIFs and other fun stuff from around the internet to gather together on beano.com and the editors are very careful about what they choose. However, this content is not made by The Beano, and those players or other embedded widgets may drop cookies (for more detail see our cookie policy).

Will anyone be able to chat or send information to other users on beano.com?

No, we’ve designed Beano.com to be totally safe for kids. It is an online destination that parents can trust and despite our mischievous heritage, it’s the one thing we are not having a laugh about. Everything is handpicked by our Editors, or handmade by our team, and we also have a team of moderators on hand. If despite all this you ever saw something a little dodgy, please let us know immediately by using our ‘Report’ links at the end of each article.

I’ve seen some Beano products on your website, does it mean my kid(s) can spend money in the Beano Shop?

Don’t worry, our shop operates like any other shop and you cannot buy anything unless you own a debit or credit card.

From time to time, we feature cool things in the Beano Comic and we do the same online and in our Apps.
