CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

There are no third-party ads in our apps, but we do cross promote our other products or the products on our related companies. Children using the app cannot purchase products through the “children’s” mode or gateway. 

We do use third party service providers but only to support our internal operations and we do not collect anything that is personally identifiable in our apps for children. We are not responsible for the third party service providers (their privacy policy governs their business); however, we have carefully chosen third party service providers who are compliant with or allow us to remain compliant with COPPA.

Children cannot interact with other adults or other children on the application. The adult associated with the account – the parent or teacher who has signed them up – may be able to view or interact with the children on their own account through the app. 

We do not collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Any child under the age of 13 using the PopSmartKids Service must do so with permission from a parent. All full names, email addresses, and credit card billing information must be from a parent, teacher or guardian. When registering your child with the PopSmartKids Service, 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 or is related to communicating writing behavior patterns. If you are concerned that your child has signed up for the application without your permission or if you are concerned that your data has been compromised, please let us know immediately so that we can take the appropriate action.

The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates. Although the PopSmartKids service is a safe place for kids, a child may leave the PopSmartKids application using the iOS or Android device Home button. Should your child leave the PopSmartKids service for another application or browser, this Privacy Policy no longer applies. We have no control over how other applications or sites collect, distribute or otherwise use your personal information or how they safeguard and secure your personal information.

SECURITY

In circumstances where your personal information is collected, we use reasonable procedural and digital security measures that are designed to help protect against loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of information and data, such as password protection and secure socket layer. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
