Information We Collect
We collect identifiable information from those who visit and interact with our Services. Depending on your interaction with the Services, we may collect the following information:
We collect the above information directly from you and your child when provided to us, automatically as you or your child navigates the Services, and from third-party service providers.
How We Use This Information
We use the collected information to:
If you would like to access, modify, or delete personal information about you or your child, you may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. California residents may have additional personal information rights. For more information or to see if these rights apply, please contact us. We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws.
Our privacy practices are in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and this section outlines our practices regarding children’s personal information.
When a parent signs up for our Codeverse membership or free trial we collect children's information directly from parents, who provide us with the applicable information listed above.
We use recordings so that Guides can review sessions with children who use the Services and to provide feedback to Guides. We have security measures in place that limit a Guide’s ability to access and copy these recordings or share the recordings with unpermitted third parties; however, we cannot always control what Guides do with these recordings or prohibited independent recordings, and we are not responsible for any misuse of these recordings by Guides.
Children may have opportunities to interact with third-party websites and services. For example, we may facilitate showcase award ceremonies on YouTube. We will consult with you and obtain your consent before sharing your child’s information through these third-party services, but we cannot be responsible for their information collection and sharing practices.
Children are not allowed to post personal information in or through the Services. While we endeavor to confirm that children do not post personal information in or through the Services, the parent or legal guardian is responsible for the child’s use of the Services.
If you are a child, it is a good idea to talk to and ask your parent(s) or guardian(s) for permission before using or playing on the Service. If you do not get such permission, you should not use our Service.
Parents may make any requests for changes to their child’s account or requests for the removal of personal information collected about their child from our Service (as applicable), or to request that we stop the further collection or use of their child’s personal information in connection with the Service (as applicable), by sending an email to email@example.com.
Parents should contact Codeverse immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if they have any concerns regarding the Service, wish to review information collected from your child, or have that information modified or deleted. If we become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, we will delete any personal information we have collected, unless we have a legal obligation to keep it, and terminate the child’s account, as applicable.
We will delete a child’s personal information upon request. If you have any concerns regarding our access and use of your child’s privacy, please contact us at email@example.com. If you would like further information about COPPA, please visit the FTC’s guidance on Protecting Your Child’s Privacy Online.
We take reasonable steps to protect the information we collect from you. We encrypt certain personally identifiable data that we collect and securely store this information to help avoid loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your information. Some content and information may be publicly available, such as apps or games that users have created. A first name and initial of last name may be included with that content. The internet and our data security measures cannot guarantee absolute security. We do not accept liability for disclosures beyond our reasonable control. You are responsible for protecting against unauthorized access to your password and any device that you may use to access and use the Services. We encourage you and your child to never give out your password and to safeguard your username, password, and personal credentials when you are using the Services.
