Hidden4World respect the privacy of the users of their mobile applications (“User” or “you”) and are committed to protect the Users’ information. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you use our Apps (defined below). Please note: if you disagree to any term provided herein, you may not access or use the Service.
1. Your consent (important, please read carefully!)
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from Kids other than as expressly specified in Sections 3.2 and 3.3 below.
We hereby prohibit any User under the age of 13 from providing us with any personal information. If you are a legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 and you believe that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete such information from our servers.
We included an age-gate in certain Apps to prevent access to specific features to Users who did not pass the age gate for protection of Kids (e.g. restricting behavioral advertising, information sharing by Kids, or the option to accept push notifications).
2. Offline Use
Hidden4World allows an offline use (without Internet connection and without GPS enablement) of some features of its Kids Apps. Offline use of Kids Apps will preclude the collection by Hidden4World and/or Third Parties of any information pertaining to you, as the legal guardian of a Kid, and/or your use (including, as applicable, information pertaining to your Kid and his/her use) of the Kids Apps.
3. Online Use
There are three types of data and information which may be collected from Users of our Kids Apps:
3.1 Non-personal Information: Hidden4World allows Third Parties to collect non-identifiable and anonymous information as detailed below (“Kids Non-personal Information”). To put it simply, with respect to such Kids Non-personal Information Hidden4World and the Third Parties are not aware of the identity of the User from whom Third Parties have collected the Kids Non-personal Information. Kids Non-personal Information collected by Third Parties may include the following technical information: type of operation system (e.g. Android, iOS, etc.), type of browser (e.g. Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.), screen resolution (e.g. 800×600, 1024×768, etc.), language (e.g. English), device type (e.g. Galaxy, HTC, iPhone, etc.), geo-location – only general location may be collected. No street name or city/town name is collected. The purpose for such collection: Hidden4World allows Third Parties collection of Non-personal Information for strict and limited purposes, namely, for the limited purpose of analysis to provide and improve the Kids Apps’ functionalities and performance.
3.2 Kids’ Persistent Device Identifier and No Other Kids personal identifiable information: Third Parties may also collect a persistent device identifier from Kids, such as IP address unique device identifier, advertising identifier (when available on a device) etc. (“Kids’ Persistent Device Identifier”). Hidden4World does not collect and does not allow Third Parties to collect from Kids any personal information that may identify an individual (other than the Kids’ Persistent Device Identifier which is collected for the limited purpose of supporting the internal operations of the Apps) and any other personally identifiable information of a private and/or sensitive nature about the Kids. We note that Hidden4World may collect, use and provide access to the User’s advertising identifier in accordance with the applicable platform provider’s policies.
Hidden4World does not allow any additional personally identifiable information to be linked to the Kids’ Persistent Device Identifier, even from other services.
The purpose for such collection: Hidden4World allows Kids’ Persistent Device Identifier to be collected strictly for internal operations of the Kids Apps including (without limitation) for serving Users of Kids Apps with advertisements as permitted under applicable laws and rules (for example, serving Users of the Kids Apps which are located in the United States with only “contextual advertisement”, which are advertisements that are served without connection to any behavioral elements).
3.3 Information gathered through the Kids Apps “Ask a Question” or “Support” type of a feature: If a Kid e-mails a question to Hidden4World, using the “Ask a Question” or “Support” type of a feature which may be available within the Kids Apps, Hidden4World may respond to such question by using the Kid’s e-mail address. Promptly after responding (or, at Hidden4World’s discretion, not responding) to such question, Hidden4World will delete the Kid’s e-mail address.
Purpose of the collection: The information described above is collected and processed solely for the purpose of supporting Hidden4World’s internal operations. This means the following:
1. providing and improving Kids Apps as well as ensuring proper functioning of the Apps and services;
2. maintaining or analyzing the functioning of the Kids Apps and services;
3. authenticating Users (e.g. verify the User’s identity when he/she interacts with advertisements or acquires in-app purchases);
4. personalizing content and enhancing User experience;
5. performing network communications;
6. protecting the security or integrity of Users, Kids Apps and services;
7. serving contextual advertisements;
8. capping the frequency of advertising;
9. ensuring legal or regulatory compliance;
10. fulfilling a User’s request under Section 3.3.
The collection and/or processing in connection with these purposes will performed as permitted under applicable laws and rules.
