- Information Collection, Use, and Disclosure
In order for a child to access the Kids Services, their parents or legal guardians (“Parents”) must first set up a parental account. Once a parental account is established, Parents can then set up an account for their child to access the Kid Services (“Kids Account”).
As part of setting up a Kids Account, Parents will be asked to provide information relating to the Kids Account. Parents may provide their child’s first name, choose an avatar, set controls for when and how long the child can use the Kids Account, and set restrictions on what Kids Services the child can access through their Kids Account.
- We will not collect or allow third parties to collect personal information (including persistent identifiers) through Kids Accounts for purposes of Interest-based Advertising or building a profile about the child.
- We will not require a child to provide more information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in the Kids Services.
- Third Parties
- Retention and Deletion
We retain children’s personal information for a reasonable amount of time to perform the task for which we collected it, unless otherwise requested by a child’s Parent. We reserve the right to keep certain information necessary for record-keeping purposes to the extent permitted and/or required by law, including any statutory retention requirements. When deleted, we use appropriate security measures to delete children’s personal information. In some cases, to the extent permitted by law, we may aggregate de-identify children’s personal information instead of deleting it.
- Parental Rights
Parents can visit their parental account settings for certain options around their child’s Kids Account, including setting controls for when and how long the child can use the Kids Account, and setting restrictions on what Kids Services the child can access through their Kids Account.
In addition, at any time, a Parent may review their child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete such personal information, request that we delete their child’s Kids Account, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using their child’s personal information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect Parent privacy and security and the privacy and security of children, we may require a Parent to take certain steps or provide additional information, which we will keep strictly confidential, to verify their identity before we provide any information about the child or make any corrections.
Please keep in mind that a request to delete personal information may lead to a termination of the Kids Account and ability for the child to further access the Kids Services.
