KidApply is the sole owner of the information collected on this site or via our products and services. KidApply may collect information from you at two different stages. First, we collect anonymous, aggregate information from all visitors to the site and users of our products and services. This information is never linked to any personally identifiable information and is only used in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our site, products and services. Second, KidApply collects personally identifiable information when you create a KidApply account and when you order KidApply products or utilize certain services. Such information may also include information we request and that you provide us about your child or children, such as their birthdates and/or names, in order for us to provide you with our services. Online account creation may require you to submit the following personal information: name, address, company information, email address, and phone number. For purposes of billing, you may need to provide your credit card type, number, expiration date and billing address for the card. Certain personally identifiable information is required if you subscribe to a KidApply newsletter, or sign up to participate in a promotion, sweepstake or survey through the site. KidApply may also receive personally identifiable information from our business partners. We retain information for as long as we have a lawful basis to keep it.
KidApply complies with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the FTC’s Rule interpreting COPPA (16 CFR § 512). This site is not directed to children and does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age.
If you believe a child under 13 has improperly accessed the site and provided personally identifiable information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove the information.
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient and customized experience while using our site and to allow us to provide products and services to you. KidApply will never give your information to, or share your information with, any third party not affiliated with or owned by KidApply, except as permitted by law. KidApply will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when:
We store information that we collect through cookies and log files to create a profile of our customers. A profile is stored information detailing how individual customers use the site. Collected information in a profile is tied to the customer’s personally identifiable information. However, your profile is used solely for internal purposes, to help us improve the experience of our customers. We do not share your profile with any third parties.
A cookie is a small text file stored on the customer’s hard drive for an extended period of time. The cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. Allowing a KidApply cookie to remain on your computer makes it easier for you to log in to and use the site.
Log files record internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, internet service provider (ISP) referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track a customer’s movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc are not linked to personally identifiable information.
In addition, to the extent that KidApply is deemed to transfer personal information outside of the European Union under GDPR (as defined below), we will rely on a legal basis to transfer that information, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission and/or the EU-US and certification under the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks.
We will disclose personal information when required by law, or if we have good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with current judicial proceedings, a court order or legal process served on us, (b) protect and defend our rights, or (c) protect the rights, property, and other interests of our users or others.
In the event that KidApply goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, our customers’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred. Customers will be notified via prominent notice on our site prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transaction, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be given a choice consistent with our Notification of Changes section.
This site may contain links to and portions of other sites. KidApply is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. When you leave our site or view a portion of a third party’s site through our site, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of each such site. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by KidApply.
Wherever your personal information may be held within KidApply or on its behalf, we intend to take commercially reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of your information. We use encryption to protect sensitive information online. The servers that store your personally identifiable information are housed in a secure environment. Finally, we also make an effort to protect your information offline.
When registering for access to a secure area of the site, we may ask you to select a username and password. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence when accessing your computer.
If your personally identifiable information changes, you may contact us to correct, update or delete and deactivate our record of your personally identifiable information.
KidApply may edit this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes, we will prominently post a notice on the main page and other pages to alert you of the change.
The General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") provides certain rights for customers who are located in the European Union. These rights may include, in certain circumstances, the right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal information held by us, to request access to your personal information held by us, and the right to request erasure or transfer of your personal information held by us.
To exercise such rights, please send an email with "EU Data Subject Rights" in the subject line to email@example.com.
