KidsTube.com® Privacy Notice*



Note: To make this Privacy Policy easier to read, we have used the term “parent” to replace “parent or legal guardian.” When referring to your child, we have used the terms “they”, “them”, and “their” to replace the terms “he or she”, “him or her”, and “his or her”.

At KidsTube, we take your child’s privacy very seriously. Our Privacy Policy and procedures conform to the U.S. Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and Rule (COPPA). We collect only information that is necessary for your child to participate in KidsTube’s activities. We NEVER rent or sell your child’s information, we retain your child’s personal information for only as long as is reasonably necessary, and we protect your child’s information from unauthorized access or use at all times. Your consent is required for us to collect, use, or disclose any personal information from your child. If you don’t provide your consent, we will not collect, use, or disclose any personal information from your child, for example, we won’t allow your child to upload videos to KidsTube. If you do provide your consent, we’ve listed below the items of information we will collect from your child, and the potential opportunities for the disclosure of personal information. You have the right to review and have deleted any information we collect from your child.

Your Email Address
When your child registers as a member on KidsTube, they fill out on online form with your email address. We use this information for internal operations only. For example, as required by COPPA, we contact you to request your consent for your child to provide personal information on KidsTub. If you do not provide your consent within 90 days from the date we contact you, we will delete your email address from our records. We NEVER rent or sell your email address.

Your Child’s Private Information: What We Collect, How We Collect It, What We Do With It
We collect only information that is necessary for your child to participate in KidsTube’s activities. We retain your child’s personal information for only as long as is reasonably necessary, and we protect your child’s information from unauthorized access or use at all times.

Name, Birth Date, and Email Address: When you complete the Parental Consent Form, you’ll be asked to provide your child’s name and birth date. After you provide your consent, your child will provide their email address. This information is used for internal operations, which means no one can see it on KidsTube.
To complete their registration after you provide your consent, your child completes a form with their email address and birth date. This information is used for internal operations.
  • We may use your child’s email address if it is necessary for the KidsTube Staff to communicate with them about their use of the site, for example for support issues, contests, promotions, or other opportunities on KidsTube.
  • We use your child’s name to connect your consent with the correct member’s account.
  • We use your child’s birth date to place your child in the appropriate age category for videos and activities on KidsTube.
Username
When your child completes their registration on KidsTube, they fill out an online form with a unique username. We display your child’s username on their profile page and next to each post your child makes on KidsTube, for example when they upload a video, post a comment, or send an in-site message. If your child’s username contains their real name or email address, or is the same as their username on other websites, it may allow other visitors to contact them off-site. If your child is in the 10+ age category, their username enables other members in the 10+ age category to contact them on the site.

Image, Voice, and Other Personal Information
  • When your child uploads a video or graphic on KidsTube, they fill out a form with a brief description (title, summary and search tags) of their video or graphic. We do not request any personal information from your child in this process. However, your child’s image and/or voice may be on the video, and their image may be on the graphic. Your child may provide personal information in the video, graphic or description, for example they may say their full name on the video, or list their full name in the credits or in the description. Additional personal information may be in your child’s video or graphic, such as their geographic location, school, hobbies, or username on other websites. We may post your child’s video or graphic and its description on KidsTube, and it may be seen by other visitors to the site. If you do not want your child’s video or graphic and its description to be seen by other visitors to the site, you can choose to have it seen only by your child.
  • Your child may upload a graphic for their profile picture, for example a photo or a drawing. Your child’s image or other personal information may be on the graphic. We will display the profile picture next to your child’s username on their profile page and next to each post your child makes on KidsTube, for example when they upload a video, post a comment, or send a message. If you do not want your child’s image on their profile picture, they can leave the profile picture blank, or upload a different graphic, such as a cartoon character or toy.
Age 10+: Comments, Blogs, Emails, Chats
If your child is in the 10+ age category, they can interact with other KidsTube members who are in the 10+ age category. We collect your child’s comments, messages, and any other words they post on the site. This information is collected only from KidsTube members in the 10+ age category, and does not apply to children in the 3+ and 6+ age categories. If you do not want this information collected, you can choose to have your child placed in a different age category.
  • Your child can enter comments about videos and graphics uploaded by other members in the 10+ age category. Your child’s comments, username, and profile picture can be seen by visitors to the page for that video or graphic.
  • Your child can send messages within the KidsTube site to other members in the 10+ category. Your child’s message, username, and profile picture can be seen by the recipient.
  • KidsTube may provide additional interactive activities for children in the 10+ age group, such as blogs, chats or online lounge events. Your child’s comments, username, and profile picture can be seen by the other members who are participating in that activity.
IP Address
Every time your child logs into their account, the IP address of the computer they’re on is collected, along with their activity on the site, such as videos uploaded and watched. This information is collected for internal operations only. For example, if a member violates KidsTube’s Rules, such as persistently posting swears, we may ban that IP address from KidsTube.

Third Parties
KidsTube may provide information collected from your child to third party service providers who provide essential services to KidsTube, such as the moderators who review the uploaded videos for age-appropriateness. Aggregated data in which your child is not personally identifiable may be provided to third parties for marketing or research purposes. For example, KidsTube may provide the number of members in an age category, but not your child’s username, birth date or email address. You can agree to let KidsTube collect and use your child’s information, without consenting to the disclosure of the information to third parties.

Advertiser Info
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Your Rights and Options
You can review the personal information that your child has provided on KidsTube, and you can request that we delete your child’s information. At any time, you may revoke your consent, refuse to allow KidsTube to further use or collect your child’s personal information, and direct KidsTube to delete the information. We will protect your child’s information against unauthorized access or use while it is being disposed of. In turn, we may terminate any service provided to your child that requires that information for participation. For example, without your child’s birth date to place them in the correct age category, their experience on KidsTube may not be age appropriate.
  • When you provide your verified consent, we will email you a 24/7 login ID so you can review the personal information that your child has provided on KidsTube. Before allowing you access to a child’s information, we will verify that you are the child’s parent. We may use a variety of methods approved by COPPA to verify your identity, including completion of our Parental Consent Form [LINK TO CONSENT FORM], video-conferencing, or a toll-free telephone call.
  • If you do not want your child’s video or graphic and its description to be seen by other visitors to the site, you can choose to have it seen only by your child. Each time your child uploads a video or graphic, they can click the PRIVATE button, which means they will be the only one who can see it. If you want a staff member to help you with this, or if you want your child’s previously uploaded videos to be changed from PUBLIC to PRIVATE, please contact the KidsTube Site Operators (see contact information below).
  • If you do not want your child’s image on their profile picture, they can leave the profile picture blank, or upload a different graphic, for example a cartoon character or toy. If you want a staff member to help you change a previously uploaded graphic, please contact the KidsTube Site Operators (see contact information below).
  • If your child is in the 10+ age category and you do not want the comments and messages they post on KidsTube to be collected, you can choose to have your child placed in a different age category. Please contact the KidsTube Site Operators (see contact information below).
