The information we collect is covered by this privacy policy, and the information the third-party site or platform collects is subject to the third-party site or platform’s privacy practices.

CHILDREN PRIVACY 

We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections with respect to personal information we may collect from children on our sites and applications. Some of the features on our sites and applications are age-gated so that they are not available for use by children, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children in connection with those features. When we intend to collect personal information from children, we take additional steps to protect children’s privacy, including:

  • Notifying parents about our information practices with regard to children, including the types of personal information we may collect from children, the uses to which we may put that information, and whether and with whom we may share that information;
  • In accordance with applicable law, and our practices, obtaining consent from parents for the collection of personal information from their children, or for sending information about our products and services directly to their children;
  • Limiting our collection of personal information from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in an online activity; and
  • Giving parents access or the ability to request access to personal information we have collected from their children and the ability to request that the personal information be changed or deleted.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

Intellegi is committed to protecting the privacy of children who use our sites and applications. This Children’s Online Privacy Policy explains our information collection, disclosure, and parental consent practices with respect to information provided by children under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”), and uses terms that are defined in our general Privacy Policy. This policy is in accordance with the U.S. As a parent, COPPA puts you in charge of your child’s personal information.

SAFETY RULES

While the Internet offers amazing opportunities for entertainment, education, connectivity, and more, anyone who goes online should understand basic Online Safety. Teaching these basics to your children is essential.

  1. When asked by friends or strangers, online or offline, never share Account IDs and Passwords.
  2. Don’t reveal any personal identity information in your Screen Names, such as your birthday, hobbies, hometown or school.
  3. In any information exchange, like e-mail or chat, never give any personal information about yourself or someone else.
  4. Don’t share photos of yourself, your family, or your home with people you meet online.
  5. Never open e-mails that come from unknown sources DELETE them.
  6. If you receive mean or threatening comments online, don’t respond. Log off and report the activity to your parents.
  7. Nothing you write on the Web is completely private. Be careful what you write and to whom.
  8. Never make plans to meet an online “friend” in person.
  9. WHEN IN DOUBT: Always ask your parents for help. If you’re not sure, log off.

CYBER BULLIES

Just as a child may encounter bullying or aggressive behavior from other students in school, they may be subject to bullying online. So-called “cyber bullies” may send harmful and cruel words or images through the Internet or an electronic device such as a cell phone, in order to harass, embarrass, humiliate, and threaten their target. Other forms of bullying include password hacking, identity theft and blackmail. Many kids may be equally likely to become bullies or victims. While some are anonymous, cyber bullies are often kids who are known by a child from their school, camp, community group, or neighborhood.

It is important to talk openly with children about how to handle cyber bullying issues. If your child encounters a form of cyber bullying, remember that bullies thrive on the reactions of their targets. Children should avoid escalating the situation by refraining from responding to the bully. Parents should contact your local authorities if the problem persists. Be sure to save all messages, including dates and time.

RESOURCES

Children as young as two are interacting with the Internet from their parents’ laps. As they get older, however, they may begin to venture online by themselves, with as much support and guidance as you can provide. It is up to parents to decide which controls to put in place and when to ease up as children grow and mature in their decision-making. Here are some resources that you can use to shape your child’s Internet usage:

  • Many sites have guides for parents. Take a look to make sure that you understand how the sites your child visits approach safety.
  • Some sites offer parental controls. Take advantage of parental controls to determine what your child has access to.
  • Most browsers have settings that can block Web sites or entire domains. Use these controls to pre-select Web sites children can or cannot visit.
  • Research software available that can monitor children’s Internet use.
  • Review the privacy policies of your child’s favorite sites to be aware of what kind of information is being collected about your child, and how it is being used.
