KidzSearch believes that maintaining the online privacy of children is
essential to building a safe site where kids can learn and play. We provide
the following information about our policies in conformance with the 1998
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
1. What personal information does KidzSearch collect?
KidzSearch does not collect visitors' personally identifiable information
without consent, nor does KidzSearch require visitors to give personally
identifiable information in order to access or use our site. KidzSearch will
not require a visitor to disclose more information than is reasonably
necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of that
participation. The KidzSearch site contains links to other Web sites that
may ask for personal information. Although we try to review such sites
carefully, KidzSearch expressly disclaim any responsibility or liability for
the privacy policies, data collection practices or regulatory compliance of
those independent sites. Certain features of our site may require entering
an e-mail address to submit content, or to be notified about getting a
response to a forum question. Users are given clear instructions that this
is optional and if they want to participate they must be over 13 years of
age, or have their parents contact us for consent. Personal information,
such as names, phone numbers, or address details are never collected. Following COPPA exclusions, our contact form allows one-time
responses from us to user questions and we never store e-mails after a response
is given back.
Yes, but only to provide site features, such as remembering a selected
background screen color when a person visits again. We do not store any
3. Does KidzSearch collect aggregated information?
KidzSearch collects statistics on which keywords a visitor searches and
which responses they select. This information is gathered together
(aggregated) so that individual visitors cannot be identified or
distinguished from the whole. For example, we might know that 100 visitors
searched for giraffes, but we do not know who those visitors were. This
information helps us make editorial and design decisions to make KidzSearch
more helpful, such as providing better autocomplete. As required by COPPA,
we do not show any ads that are interest-based. We only allow ads that are
contextual, meaning it is related to the page a user is viewing and not
based on any identifiable information. This is done by opting-out of this
feature with our ad network partners.
We may use aggregated information to help us target advertising or content
based on general location or other non-identifiable data. We also may collect IP Addresses (which domain a visitor is logged
on from), Referral Data (the address of the last URL a user visited prior to
clicking through to KidzSearch), Browser type (which browser is being used),
Platform Type (whether a visitor uses Macintosh or Windows), and Traffic
Flow (where a visitor spends their time while on the site) on our site,
however these collected pieces of information do not allow for personal
identification of the visitor.
4. Does KidzSearch have a chat room?
5. Does KidzSearch run contests for children?
We may have periodic contests. Collected information is never given
out to third-parties and parental permission is always required.
6. Interaction with Children
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) governs information
gathering online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable
consent from a child's parent or guardian is required before collecting,
using, or disclosing personal information from a child under the age of 13.
We collect no identifiable personal information, like e-mail, address,
first/last name, etc. for users that are under 13 years of age. None of our features require an account for usage. However, some
features have added-value items, like notification if a homework help
question is answered. These special features require parental consent for
children under 13 before it can be used and we communicate this to the user.
If we do need to collect information about a child under 13 years of age,
COPPA required information and instructions will be provided by the specific
Web page that collects information about the child. The Web page will
specify exactly what the information will be used for, who will see it, and
how long it will be kept. We never ask or store personal information, such
as e-mail address or full names of our subscribers. The only e-mail stored
is a the parent's account, since that is needed to get membership approval.
Account requests that are not activated are deleted after 21 days. Finally,
all posted content is first reviewed by staff for safety, such as if it
contains any personal or harmful content. If it does, the content is either
edited to make it safe, or removed from our system.
There are several exceptions that permit collection of a child's email
address without receiving parental consent in advance:
To provide the parents with notice and to seek consent for communications
with the child. Note: this may require collection of the parent's email
address as well.
To respond to a one time request from a child, such as when they user our
To respond more than once to a child's request; i.e., subscription to a
newsletter. However, parental consent is required prior to the second
To protect the safety of a child who is participating on the site; i.e., in
our homework help forum.
To protect the site or to respond to law enforcement; i.e., in the case of a
Web site compromise.
Personal information about children under 13 years of age may be needed to
respond to his/her communication to us, such as to request a site feature or
to report problems with the site. Personal information about your child will
be deleted/destroyed immediately upon completion of its intended purpose. On
rare occasions, it may be determined that a communication from a child under
13 years old should be maintained for historical purposes. Should such an
occasion occur, we will obtain the necessary consent from the child's
