While the Company encourages children to participate appropriately in our Website, their privacy is extremely important to us.
The Website is controlled and operated by the Company from Canada.
The Company supports the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and other frameworks like the General Data Protection Regulation and other so-called UK GDPR (together, the “GDPR”). At this time, Canada does not have regulations like COPPA or GDPR. The Company’s goal is to minimize the information gathered from and disseminated about Children while permitting them active participation in the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice for which we are known.
How the Company Collects and Uses the Information from Children. Children can explore the Website while providing only limited personal information set out below:
Account Set-Up and Maintenance: If a Child wants to register to become a member of our Website, we require the Child to submit the following information.
Username (the Child is advised not to use his or her real name);
Birth month and year; and
Their parent’s or legal guardian’s email, which we use to ask for the parent’s consent.
We may use information collected from Children during the registration process and in account configuration in the following manner:
To create and maintain the Child’s account;
To determine the Child’s current age and post it next to any reviews posted or services provided by the Child. The Company does not post the username of any Child who is under the age of 13 or any personal information in or alongside their reviews or services.
Using the Website: The Company may automatically collect “persistent identifiers” about devices from visitors, however, we do not collect this analytics information for logged in Children.
Use of Anonymous Information: If the information collected from a Child does not identify or allow contact with him or her or his or her device (including, for example, aggregated information), we may use and disclose it for any purpose, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
No Advertisement: The Company does not display advertising based on information collected from Children.
No Newsletters: The Company’s email newsletters are for adults only – they are not designed for or targeted at Children. Children should not attempt to sign up for our email newsletter. We encourage parents and legal guardians to discuss with their children the importance of not signing up to receive email newsletter.
No Personal Information: Although a Child may create a Profile for his or her account (which includes only a username, password, birth month and year, and a parent’s/legal guardian’s email address), no portion of the Child’s Profile other than the Child’s age is publicly viewable. We encourage parents and legal guardians to discuss with their Children why they should NEVER include personal information in public posts on the Website.
We do not disclose to third parties any Children’s personal information that we collect other than as follows, consistent with applicable law:
With a parent’s/legal guardian’s permission;
As required by any applicable law;
To third-party service providers who help us operate or manage the Website;
As part of aggregated data shared with third-party service providers, our Board of Directors, funders and other partners;
To comply with legal process;
To respond to government requests;
To enforce our Terms and Conditions;
To protect our operations;
For assistance in fraud detection and prevention;
To protect the rights, privacy, safety, or property of the Company, your Child, or others;
To permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain; and
In connection with a disposition of all or a substantial portion of our business, assets, or stock, such as a sale, merge, consolidation, reorganization, joint venture, assignment, or bankruptcy, or similar proceedings.
If parental/legal guardian consent is required in respect of our use of a Child’s personal information, when setting up an account, the Child must provide their parent’s/legal guardian’s email address. We use that email to contact the Child’s parent/legal guardian to ask for their consent as required – we also explain to the parent/legal guardian:
What personal information we collect about their Child;
How we use it and why; and
How the parent/legal guardian can revoke their consent and/or ask that we delete their Child’s account and personal information.
We will delete your Child’s profile, and any parental contact information we may hold, on request if you:
Wish us to cease further collection of personal information from your Children;
Believe your Children are participating in an activity on the Website that uses their personal information in a manner you no longer consent to;
Wish us to make no further use of, or delete, the personal information we have collected online from your Children; and/or
No longer wish for your Children to participate as a member of the Website.
Parents/Legal Guardians may at any time, access, edit or delete their Children’s account by clicking on their Child’s “My Account” link or by contacting us at __@___.ca. For your Child’s protection, we may need to verify your identity before implementing any request for access, edits, or deletion.
Parents/Legal Guardians are encouraged to contact us at __@___.ca for any questions or concerns about their Children’s privacy.
