Carousel Technologies, Inc. (“Company.”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) respects children’s privacy and is committed to appropriately protecting and processing children’s data. We consider you to be a child if you are not of the legal age to consent to the collection and processing of Personal Data under applicable laws where you live (a “Child” or “Children”).
This Children’s Privacy Notice applies to all Children’s information collected through our website or applications including the “Carousel: SEL for All” app and the “joincarousel.io” website and any related websites or applications which we own or control (collectively, the “Sites” or “Apps”), and/or any related services, sales, marketing, or events we perform (collectively, the "Services"). This Children’s Privacy Notice does not apply to any non-affiliated third-party sites or services.
This Children’s Privacy Notice is in accordance with applicable privacy laws, such as the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and outlines our practices regarding information collected from and about Children who use our Services. It acts as our direct notice to Custodians under COPPA and supplements our general Privacy Notice, https://joincarousel.io/privacy-notice, which should be read alongside this Privacy Notice. If applicable to you, this Children’s Privacy Notice governs if there is any conflict between our general Privacy Notice and this Children’s Privacy Notice. If you have questions about our privacy practices as they relate to information we collect about children, see the “HOW
CAN YOU CONTACT US ABOUT THIS NOTICE?” section below.
If you are a Child, you should always check with your parents or guardians (collectively, “Custodian”) before giving out any information about you, especially before entering information on any website, mobile application, or online service. We encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of Personal Data. For more information on what you as a Custodian can do to control your Child’s access to or use of our Services, please see the “Parental Control and Choices” section of this Children’s Privacy Notice.
If you are not a Child or a Custodian, this Children’s Privacy Notice is not applicable to you, and our general Privacy Notice applies to our collection and processing of your Personal Data.
DO WE MAKE UPDATES TO THIS CHILDREN’S PRIVACY NOTICE?
In Short: Yes, we will update this notice as we deem necessary.
We may update this Children’s Privacy Notice from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated “Last updated” date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. If we make material changes to this Children’s Privacy Notice, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to review this Children’s Privacy Notice frequently to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
We understand the need to provide further privacy protections when it comes to Children’s Personal Data. When Children use our Services, we may collect, use, and disclose information about Children as described in this Privacy Notice. Some of this information may be considered “Personal Information” or “Personal Data” (as defined under applicable law) which is information that identifies you or your device or is reasonably associated with you.
Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Children’s Privacy Notice will have the same meaning as found in the general Privacy Notice.
INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND DISCLOSURE
Generally, we collect Children’s Personal Data to enable use of our Services. More specifically, we collect, use, and disclose Children’s Personal Data in the manner and for the same purposes as provided in the general Privacy Notice. However, we will not sell, market, or otherwise share Children’s Personal Data except as permitted with a Custodian’s consent.
Where applicable, we may collect a Custodian’s online contact information, including the Custodian’s name, to obtain verifiable Custodian Consent.
PARENTAL CONTROL AND CHOICES
If we allow Children to use our Apps or otherwise engage with us, we will obtain verifiable Custodian consent prior to the collection of a Child’s Personal Data. If you are a Custodian, you can refuse to allow us to collect Personal Data from your Child at any time and can request that we delete from our records the Personal Data we have collected. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account or other Services.
If you have any questions or concerns about our approach to Children’s privacy, or if you, as a Custodian, want to access the Personal Data of your Child or request the deletion of your Child’s Personal Data, please submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As noted above, we need verifiable Custodian consent before we allow a Child to use our Services. We will obtain verifiable Custodian consent as permitted by law, including through a consent form signed and returned by a Custodian or through a School (as elaborated on in the EDUCATIONAL SERVICES section below).
KEEPING PERSONAL DATA
In any instance that we collect Personal Data from a Child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the Service request or allow you to continue to participate in the Service, and to ensure the security of our users and our Services, or as required by law.
If we learn we have collected Personal Data from or about a Child in a manner inconsistent with legal requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the Custodian’s consent for that collection.
If you become aware of any data we have collected from a Child, please contact us at email@example.com.
If a Custodian does not provide Custodian consent within a reasonable time from the date this Children’s Privacy Notice is sent to obtain verifiable Custodian consent, we will delete the Custodian’s online contact information from our records.
Under the California Consumer Privacy Protection Act (“CCPA”), California residents have additional rights. If you are a California resident, please see the California addendum in our general Privacy Notice.
Additionally, pursuant to CCPA, we do not sell Personal Data collected by or from any Service or portion of a Service that is directed to Children or where we know that the user is a Child or a teen under 16. For the portions of our Services that are directed to audiences older than 16, we may share Personal Data with third parties. If this takes place, these disclosures may constitute a "sale" under California law. Where we engage in this type of disclosure, we give you the option to opt in to these disclosures. Please note that when you use these tools on our properties, you will need to renew your choices if you clear your cookies or use a new browser or device.
Some of our Services are available for teachers, schools, and school districts (collectively, “Schools”) to use as part of an educational curriculum. When used by a School, a Child’s Personal Data may be provided to us by the Child’s School and associated with a class or grade level. The School may be able to see information regarding the Child’s use of the Services and view the Child’s Personal Data on the Services.
In the cases where a School uses our Services, the School is responsible for providing notices and obtaining consents required by applicable data privacy laws, including providing all required notices to Custodians, obtaining all necessary Custodian consents, or complying with applicable requirements of an exemption or exception from the Custodian consent requirements. In this case, the School is also responsible for notifying us when a Child’s Personal Data is no longer needed for School purposes. In these cases, we base our privacy practices on the information the School provides to us.
If the Services are downloaded on a personal device, a Custodian may be able to view their Child’s Personal Data (such as username and activities completed) by logging into the Child’s account. The Custodian can delete the application providing the Services from the Child’s device. If you are a Custodian where the School obtained your consent to allow your Child to use the Services, and have questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting your Child’s Personal Data, please contact your Child’s School directly.
