Version 1.0 Last updated: April 13, 2020

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how your personal information is collected, used and shared when you visit or make a purchase from myKinCloud (“myKinCloud,” “us,” "we" or “our”). myKinCloud is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy in connection with your use of our application, website www.mykincloud and other services and features thereof (collectively referred to herein as the “App”), which may be updated from time-to-time at the sole discretion of myKinCloud. This Privacy Policy and any other documents referred to herein set forth the basis on which any personal information we collect from the account owner (“Account Owner”),  invited profile (“Invited Profile”) or added profile (“Added Profile”), (collectively, “Profile” or “Profiles”), in connection with the App will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal information and how we will collect and use your personal information.

Personal Information we collect

When we refer to personal information (“Personal Information”) in this Privacy Policy, we are referring to both Account Information and Device Information.

 

Account Information:
We collect the information and content that the Account Owner provides for themselves, and also the information and content that Profiles provide, when registering for and using the myKinCloud App, including registration information, content and communications shared on the App and activity on the App.

 

  • Registration information: This includes information that the Account Owner provides when they create a myKinCloud account for themselves that may include their child(ren), such as names, birthdates and any account login details (including email and password). In addition, Added and Invited Profiles might provide their names, birthdate and any account login details (including email and password). We also collect information about consents that the Account Owner provides to approve their child(ren)'s myKinCloud profile and activity.

  • Content and communications: We collect the content and information that the Account Owner and Profiles send and receive on the App, such as the content from features within the App, including text and photos.

  • Activity: We also collect information about how the Account Owner and Profiles use the App, such as who they engage with, what features they use and how long and in what ways they engage with different features on the App.

 

Device Information:

When you use our App, we collect information from or about the phone or another device where the App is installed. This includes, for example, information about the operating system, hardware version, device settings, device identifiers and connection information such as the name of the mobile operator or ISP, language and time zone, and IP address. We do not track your geolocation.

Communications and Third-Party Links

As an Account Owner or Profile you must opt-in to subscribe to newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information we may send. You have the opportunity to opt-in when creating the Account, or by subscribing within Settings on the App, as long as you are 13 years of age or older.  No communications are available to Profiles under 13 years of age. 


There are no third-party links to external websites or apps and there are no cookies in our Services.

Sharing your Personal Information

We do not sell your personal data to advertisers, and we do not share information that directly identifies you (such as your name, email address or other contact information) with advertisers, nor do we share any content that you post on or through our Service. We do not share your information with third parties for analytics and tracking purposes, for research or product improvement services or for any other marketing purposes. We do not sell or rent your Personal information to third parties.


The myKinCloud App is designed to provide a private environment where adults and their children can share and connect. The Account Owner who creates the group profile has control over whom is invited or added into their private group on the App, where the group can communicate with only those who are invited or added. These approved family and friends can see profile information about, and content received from the private group with whom they are connected. This can include the profiles’ names, usernames and content including text and photos that are shared with the private group.

 

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account and password, including but not limited to the restriction of access to your computer and/or Account. You agree to accept responsibility for any and all activities or actions by all Profiles that occur under your Account and/or password, whether your password is with our Service or a third-party Service. You must notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. The credit card information you provide is always encrypted during transfer over networks. 

 

Your Personal Information may be accessed by third-party service providers that support our business, such as companies that provide technical infrastructure or support. These partners must adhere to strict data confidentiality and security obligations set out in the agreements that we enter with them (such as compliance with data privacy and protection laws and maintenance of administrative, physical and technical safeguards to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of data) that are consistent with this Privacy Policy, including obligations to only use the 

information that we provide for the performance of the services we specify.

Minors

The myKinCloud App is designed to be used by both adults and children, but you must be 18 years of age to be the Account Owner for the App. Only the Account Owner can add or invite other Profiles to join the private cloud. Only individuals over the age of 13 can be Invited Profiles to join the private cloud. Individuals under the age of 13 may be Added Profiles to the App only with the involvement and consent of their parent or legal guardian, the Account Owner. This relationship is affirmed during “Add a Profile’ where the Account Owner must check a box to confirm that they are the parent or legal guardian of the minor in order to proceed with adding said profile. 

Your rights

You have the right to access Personal Information we hold about you and to ask that your Personal Information be corrected, updated or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.  

 

A parent or guardian who has authorized the myKinCloud App can see their child(ren)'s interactions on the App by accessing the account that they set up for the private group. In order to stop further collection and use of Personal Information on the App, the Account Owner can delete Profiles, including a child(ren)’s profile. If an account is deleted, we will delete the account’s registration information and information about their activity and device information, as described above. However, the messages and content that was sent to and received from others before their account was deleted may remain visible to the remaining users in the private group.  

If necessary, for legal compliance or other legitimate needs described by the policy, all information may be retained in a hashed/de-identified format.
