Protecting Children’s Privacy
Our children’s privacy notice governs our privacy practices when children are using our website
TeenToks.com and our mobile application (TeenToks), from now on and collectively referred to as our website.
Our website is not designed for use by anyone under the age of 17 unless the age of consent in their country/state/province/territory, etc., provides for 13, 14, 15, and 16-year old children to give us consent to collect their personal data. If they are under the age of consent, we require consent from their parent or legal guardian before we can collect personal data from them.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States requires us to tell parents or legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal data from children under the age of 13. COPPA also requires that we get consent from parents or legal guardians before we allow children under the age of 13 to use and interact with our website.
If you are a parent or legal guardian and believe that your child is using our website without your required consent, please contact us. Before we remove any information we may ask for proof of identification to prevent malicious removal of account information. If we discover that an unauthorized child is using our website, we will delete his or her information within a reasonable period of time. You accept that we do not verify the age of our users nor have any liability to do so.
Verifiable Parental Consent
Should we want to collect personal information from a child, COPPA and other global privacy laws require that we first get a parent or legal guardian’s consent in an email or other approved method sent to the parent or legal guardian, we will describe what information we would like to collect, how we propose to use it, how the parent can offer and cancel consent. If we do not get consent from the parent or legal guardian within a reasonable time frame, we will remove the child and parent information collected with the request.
Teacher Consent in Replace of a Parent
In most jurisdictions, for school-based activities, school administrators and teachers are allowed under children’s privacy laws to act for the parents or legal guardians to give consent when collecting personal data from children. Teachers and school administrators should always tell parents when collecting personal data from children on their behalf.
Personal Data We Collect From Children
When a child registers with our website, we may collect personal data from that child. When we collect personal data from a child, we will hold that data only as long as reasonably necessary to allow the child to continue to use and interact with our website.
During the registration process, we may collect data about a child for security purposes, announcements, and notifications. This personal data may include a child’s name, age, gender, username, email address, account name, password, the parent or legal guardian’s email address, and other contact information.
To comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States and other global privacy laws, on our website where we ask for the age of a user who is under the age of 13, and under the age of 17 in some countries outside the United States, we will ask for their parent, legal guardian, or teacher’s email address or another process to give us their consent before we collect any personal data from a child under these ages. If you think that your child is involved in an activity that collects personal data and you or another parent or legal guardian has not received a request for consent to collect such data, please contact us using the information at the top of this page.
Automatic Information Collected
When children interact with our website, specific information may automatically be collected. We collect this information to make our website useful to children and other users. We also use this information for internal business purposes, including improving our website.
