  • Children’s Information 

A “Child User” is a person under the age of digital consent under the law in their jurisdiction.  We do not intentionally collect personal information from children without seeking any required parental approval in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory obligations, such as the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).

We will ask you to provide age-related information in order to help us comply with laws like COPPA. Once you have been identified as a Child User, you may register an account with us using a registration process similar to the one adults go through; however, Child Users will first be subject to a parental notice and consent process prior to activation of their account. To initiate the registration and consent process for a Child User, we collect a parent or legal guardian’s email address. 

If a user indicates they are a COPPA minor, we’ll require that user to complete a parental approval process before continuing to access our Services. This process is designed to notify parents that their child has requested access to our Services, inform them about our privacy practices, offer them the opportunity to approve our collection and use of their child’s information as described in this policy, and describe the controls that we make available to them.

The personal information we collect from or about Child Users is used to give them access to certain features of the Services and communicate with a parent or legal guardian about the Child User’s registration, including for the purpose of verifying their information in connection with the registration. We do not share or otherwise disclose Children’s personal information, except (1) as may be necessary to protect the safety of a Child, including by disclosing their personal information, where appropriate, to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety; (2) to enable us to take precautions against liability; (3) to protect the safety and security of the Services; or (4) where required to do so by law or legal process.

We use third-party service providers such as SuperAwesome Trading Limited which is described below to collect or maintain Child Users’ personal information through the Services.

At any time, a parent or legal guardian 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 account, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using their Child’s Personal Information by contacting us using the email address provided in the Contact section below. To protect parents and legal guardians’ privacy and security and the privacy and security of Children, we may require a parent or legal guardian 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.

SuperAwesome.  We use Kids Web Services (“KWS”), a product of SuperAwesome Trading Limited of 2-4 Packhorse Road, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, SL9 7QE, England, United Kingdom for obtaining verified parental consent (if applicable) and informing parents of their Child’s online activities. You may contact SuperAwesome directly at for any questions related to their use of Personal Information. SuperAwesome’s privacy policy for KWS can be found at 

SuperAwesome’s KWS is designed specifically to power kid-friendly registrations and digital experiences, as well as parental management tools, across the web and mobile ecosystem in compliance with the COPPA and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (General Data Protection Regulation) (“GDPR”). KWS is certified as COPPA-compliant by the kidSAFE Seal Program, an FTC-Approved COPPA Safe Harbor Program.
