Collection and Use of Information
Information Collected or Received from You
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are a User), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
Account Information. If you create an Account, we may collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name and email address (“PII”). If you purchase a Paid Feature or a Subscription through the Services, we may also collect your Payment Information, which may include PII. We may also collect information that is not considered PII, such as your time zone. When you use your Account to set up the Services, we may also collect certain information about your Child that you provide to us, including your Child’s first name, date of birth and time zone (“Child Information”).
App Information. If you install the Child App or MDM Profile on a Target Device, the Services will collect a list of all the mobile applications installed on the Target Device (“App Information”). The App Information we receive is updated through the Services when a new application is installed on the Target Device. We use App Information for the purpose of identifying the applications installed on the Target Device that are subject to SaferKid’s proprietary application rating system and to provide parents and legal guardians alerts regarding those installations on the Target Device.
Information Collected Using Cookies and other Web Technologies. Like many website owners and operators, we use automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information.
“Web Beacons” (also known as web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many Visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the device, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail).
Information Collected Automatically. Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both Users and non-Users (either, a “Visitor”). Log Data may include information such as a Visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a Visitor was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a Visitor browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, the links on our Services that a Visitor clicked on and other statistics. We use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences.
Information Sent by Your Mobile Device. We collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use our Services, like a device identifier, user settings and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of our Services.
Location Information. When you use our Services, we may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location or by accessing your mobile device’s GPS coordinates or coarse location if you enable location services on your device. We may use location information to improve our Services for you. If you do not want us to collect mobile device location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device.
Apple Account Data. When you use our Services, we may collect and store data from accounts on devices or computers manufactured by Apple that you legally control. This data includes but is not limited to text message and iMessages history, web browsing history, and contacts.
Mobile Device Management Data. When you use our Services, we may collect and store data from devices that you legally control using Apple's Mobile Device Management API. This data includes lists of installed apps, the universal device ID, etc. Data collected via the Mobile Device Management API is not shared with 3rd parties unless required by law, as part of a transaction for the sale of all or substantially all of the SaferKid's assets, or, in aggregate and anonymized. Data collected via the Mobile Device Management API is not used for marketing purposes.
Device Usage History. When you use our Services on Android devices, we may passively collect and store data from the device. This data includes but is not limited to text message threads, web browsing history, contacts, phone call history, and lists of installed apps.
Information We Collect From Children
Information that We Share with Third Parties
We will not share any PII, Child Information or App Information that we have collected from or regarding you, or a Target Device, except as described below:
Information Shared with Our Services Providers. We may engage third-party services providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party services providers have access to your PII, Child Information and App Information only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf and are expressly obligated not to disclose or use your PII for any other purpose.
For example, we may share your Payment Information with our third party payment processing services providers in order to complete a Transaction initiated through the Services.
Information Shared with Third Parties. We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry research and analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.
We utilize Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, Inc., that we use to gather information about how Visitors engage with our Site and Services. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
We also use Mixpanel to provide us with analytics data regarding your interactions with our Services. You may opt-out of Mixpanel’s automatic retention of data collected while using the Services by visiting https://mixplanel.com/optout/. To track opt-outs, Mixpanel uses a persistent opt-out cookie placed on your device. Please note that if you get a new computer, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter the browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may clear the Mixpanel opt-out cookie.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions. Information that we collect from Visitors, including PII, Child Information and App Information is considered to be a business asset. Thus, if we are acquired by a third party as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale or if our assets are acquired by a third party in the event we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, some or all of our assets, including your PII and the Child Information and App Information, may be disclosed or transferred to a third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you or your use of the Services (including Child Information and App Information) to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate: (i) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas); (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the property, rights and safety of a third party or the public in general; and (iii) to stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
We offer you choices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your PII and Child Information and we’ll respect the choices you make. Please note that if you decide not to provide us with the PII or Child Information that we request, you may not be able to access all of the features of the Services.
Modifying Your Information. You can access and modify the PII and Child Information associated with your Account through the Services. If you want us to delete your PII and your Account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon as we can, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Responding to Do Not Track Signals
Our Site does not have the capability to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from various web browsers.
The Security of Your Information
We take reasonable administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect the information that we collect from or about you in connection with your use of the Services (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When you enter information on our forms, we encrypt this data using SSL or other technologies. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
Please note that your PII may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you’re located outside the United States and choose to provide your PII to us, we may transfer your PII to the United States and process it there.
