For Kurio Products, the Kurio Store and Online at Kurioworld.com
Updated July 3, 2013
Kurio devices are the Ultimate Android™ Devices for Families™ with a reputation for unparalleled parental controls (time management, web filtering, app management and more) facilitating parents’ ability to carefully sculpt suitable access to content by children.
Kurio and the Distributors take the privacy of every child seriously. We have limited the information we collect, store the information in a secure fashion and only use it for account maintenance, updates and product notices.
A. What personal information about users does Kurio collect?
The Personally Identifiable Information we learn from our end users helps us personalize and continually improve your experience on the CIPs. Here are the types of Personally Identifiable Information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on CIPs feedback or give us in any other way. For example, you provide information to us when you search for an app and/or product; place an order through a CIP or one of our third-party distributors or affiliates; register your Kurio tablet or device, provide account or profile information; communicate with us by email; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; provide and rate products or product reviews and access other interactive areas of our site. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone numbers; information about other users to whom purchases have been sent; content of emails to us; and financial and credit card information. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests; allowing your child to use our tablets, devices and applications safely; customizing future shopping for you; improving our services, product offerings and stores; and communicating with you. Information may also be aggregated, by which process your Personally Identifying Information is removed, and used in various ways as further described below.
CIDE collects basic demographic information submitted through the parental areas of CIPs that may include items like the gender, age and name of children: We collect this information in order to create an account for your child to set parental controls over such things as what games they may play, websites they may view, videos they may watch, content filtering settings, and applications they may use and download, and who they are able to connect with.
When you use our Mobile Applications and devices, we automatically collect information such as the serial number and operating system version. We use this information so that we are able to deliver the correct content to the device and mobile applications. The information collected about a user’s device may be used in order to identify the appropriate user account for purposes of billing, version management, and other similar account management-related features.
A child’s participation or access to an activity cannot be conditioned on him or her providing more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary for that activity. All requests for information from Kurio devices shall come from the parental area only. No information is requested in the child-directed areas of Kurio devices.
Cookies: Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that may be transferred to your device’s hard drive (or other storage device) through your online interaction to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide certain features, such as maintaining your online session in a “logged-in” state for purposes of product registration and access to account management features, providing of personalized recommendations, storing items in your Shopping Cart between visits and analyzing and enhancing your experience on the CIPs. A cookie gets entered into the “Cookies” folder (or other commonly used storage area for Cookies) on your hard drive (or other storage device) after you close your session, and may be used by your device on subsequent visits.
Data Analytics: We use data analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our devices and applications. This software may record information such as how often you use the applications, the events that occur within the applications, aggregated usage, and performance data. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally Identifiable Information you submit within the mobile device or applications.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. For example, we may receive account information, purchase or credit redemption information, and page-view information from some merchants with which we operate co-branded businesses or for which we provide technical, advertising, promotion or other services.
B. What we do with the information we collect.
We will use your Personally Identifiable Information only as permitted by law. We use your information to allow you to search for a product; place an order through the Kurioworld.com website or the Kurio store or one of our third-party affiliates; provide and update account or profile information; provide you a way to purchase, recycle and send back your Kurio tablet or device; communicate with us by e-mail, and complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form.
Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
C. How we share the information we collect with others.
We do not share any personal information on specific users with independent third parties. We may, however, share personal information about our users, as necessary, with third party service providers that help us run the site or perform certain functions on our behalf. These providers are prohibited from using any personal information we share with them for their own benefit.
We may also share non-personal information about our users with third parties for partnership and advertising purposes. Such data is only shared in aggregate to provide partners and advertisers with information on the geographic origin of our users and other basic aggregate information related to our total user base.
Finally, CIDE Interactive may disclose user information, including personal information, in order to respond to a subpoena, court order, law enforcement request, user safety issue, or as otherwise required by law. Your information may also be transferred to a third party in the event CIDE Interactive files for bankruptcy or is involved in an acquisition, merger, sale, corporate reorganization, bankruptcy proceeding, or other similar event.
D. How do we keep your information secure?
If we store any information you give us, this information is stored in secure operating environments, which include the use of firewall-protected servers. We also limit access to your account information to employees who have a need to know, and require users to login with their unique login details (i.e., username and password) before granting them access to their account.
Despite these measures, no method of security is 100 percent secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data.
E. What types of parental controls do we offer parents?
Parents always have the option to disable their child’s Kurio device or Kurioworld.com or Kurio store account or view or request the deletion of the parent email address associated with the child’s account. To the extent you submitted or we possess information regarding your child, you may also request that we discontinue further collection or use of your child’s personal information (if we have any on file). To make any such requests, please use the contact information in the section below. We may require you to verify your child’s login details (i.e., username and password) and/or send us an email from the parent email account on file before honoring any such requests.
Please note that if you deactivate your child’s account or delete the parent email address associated with your child’s account, these actions may result in the permanent termination of your child’s account, as well as any points or achievements earned under that account.
F. Your choice to opt out.
You can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of CIP features and functionality, and therefore you will be unable to participate in such features and functionality.
To opt out, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and state “opt out” in the subject line.
G. Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements.
CIDE Interactive expects its partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our sites or devices, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to Kurioworld.com or the Kurio Store you may link to, or view as part of a frame, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through a CIP you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. CIDE Interactive is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
