Children have the possibility to register to our sites and applications and view content, create programs, and engage in specialfeatures of the Apitor product. During the registration procedure, children are asked to enter their birthdates to sign up. It happens that children who are 12 years old and under are required to provide a parent or a guardian's email address so that the adult can create a username and password for those children. We highly suggest for adults not to provide any personal information about children in their usernames. In parallel, we will not require information that goes beyond what is just necessary to log in.
If your child is 12 years old or under and you suspect him or her of attempting to use our platform, and have not received a notice from us to seek your consent as a parent or guardian, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Content Generated by children
Children are allowed to create content and save it. Examples of created content that may include personal information are programs, images, videos,comments and posts. It is possible that the parent rejects the content generated by the child, and decides to keep it private between them both. Otherwise, it will be sent to Apitor administrators of the Apitor Robot platform, who can moderate it before it is publicly posted.Apitor administrators have the sole right to reject any content that is inappropriate for the following reasons:
•Sexual content that contains graphic sexual activity or nudity.
•Aggressive content that promotes violence causing physical harm to humans and/or animals.
•Hateful or abusive content that incites hatred against protected groups, minorities or even individual people.
•Children abuse content that includes sexual, predatory or abusive communications towards minors.
•Spam or misleading content that is massively posted or otherwise misleading in nature.
About Verifiable Instructor's Consent
In the case of school-based activities, COPPA allows teachers and school administrators to act in lieu of parents or guardians unless they notify these latter of such activity in order to obtain their consent. Schools should in general always notify parents about these activities.
Contests and Sweepstakes
For contests and sweepstakes, we only require the information necessary for a child to participate, such as username and instructor's email address (to notify the parent where to lawfully abide). We only contact the parent and/or guardian for more personal information when the child wins the contest or the sweepstake.
On this occasion, and in order to be more responsive with the child, Apitor may need to ask for the child's email address. Apitor will delete this information immediately after responding to the question or request.
Email notifications are sent for vital communication with users, exclusively to parents and/or guardians and children who are 13 or older. When children interact with us, certain information such as web browser, computer operating system and IP address may automatically be collected to make our sites and applications more interesting and useful.
These information are collected by Apitor or third parties using technologies such as cookies, flash cookies and other unique identifiers for internal purposes only, in order to:
• Provide children with access to features on service.
• Customize content and improve our service.
• Conduct research and reporting in order to analyze our service's performance.
In the event we collect (or allow others to collect) such information from children on our platforms for other purposes, we will certainly notify parents or guardians prior to such collection.
When Information Collected from Children is Available to Others In addition to those situations where a child's personal information is posted publicly (after securing parental consent), we also may share or disclose personal information collected from children in these limited instances:
•We may share information with our bulletin board solution if it is necessary for them to support functions for us.
•We may disclose personal information if required by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. To the extent that is permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose personal information collected from children in response to a law enforcement or public agency's request; if we believe disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, and finally to protect the security or integrity of our platforms.
Instructor's Choices and Controls
At any time, parents or guardians can change a child's password, username, user avatar image or delete their account, suppressing access to the Apitor Robot platform for that child. Deleting an account would result into the immediate suppression of any publicly posted content. If there is an issue with editing or removing child information, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
6. China Privacy Laws
Our privacy policies abide by the local regulation where the headquarters are established. The essence of this regulation is found in various PRC laws, regulations, and non-binding standards which include data privacy provisions here listed:
· The Several Provisions on Regulating the Internet Information Service Market Order (effective since March 15th, 2012) issued by the Ministry of Information and Internet Technology (MIIT), which is charged with regulating data privacy online.
Currently in China, personal information, as referred to in the abovementioned PRC regulations covering data protection, is defined in broad terms as any identifying information. Or, to be more precise, the rules define it as "any information associated with a user, which, either independently or when combined with other information, is able to identify such user."
