If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Data is defined in this policy as information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.
During our registration, the only information we may ask you to provide about a child who will be using our services is the child’s first name (or nickname), birth month and year, and gender.
Because the security of your personal information is important to us, we only ask for Personal Data where it is reasonably necessary to provide our services. We may collect Personal Data only that parents voluntarily provide. We also use commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures designed to safeguard all information collected by the Services.
- We do not collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. Any child under the age of 13 using our services must do so with permission from a parent. All full names, email addresses, and credit card billing information must be from a parent or guardian.
- We do not disclose the Personal Data of any Child User to third parties for any marketing or promotional purposes.
- We do not include any pop-up ads or other advertisements in our services directed to children.
- We will never sell or rent the Personal Data of any User of Our Services to a third party.
We encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s activities and interests on their devices. When registering your child with our services, we may ask a series of general questions including your child’s age, interests, and gender. This information is used to customize content to your child’s age and interests. We do not use or disclose this information for any other purposes except to provide you with quality service. Any data that is shared is done so on an anonymous, aggregate basis among all users.
The non-personal data doesn’t directly identify an individual or which may have been personal information but has had the personally identifiable information removed. We may collect non-personal information about the use of the website and apps to help us improve our services and to provide progress reports to parents.
We collect personal data when a parent subscribes to a newsletter or alert, submits content to a forum or blog, or requests technical support. This data may include a name (screen or nickname), gender, birth date, and email address. This information may be used to contact parents about new services, features, reports and to send push notifications if consent to receive them has been given. If you contact us for help, we will only use your email address to reply to your question.
Please note that if a parent posts personal information about themselves in a community forum or blog in the parent section, in addition to being collected, this data is made public for others to see. The parent is responsible for the disclosure of any such data in those forums.
