When you use these services, you will provide us with some information. As such, we aim to be transparent about the data we collect, how we use it, with whom we share it, and the tools we provide you with to view, amend, and remove your information.
There are three basic categories of information we collect:
Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.
We collect information about you when you engage with our services. For instance, the majority of our services need you to create a KidPick account, which requires us to gather some information about you, including your nickname, username, password, parents’ name, parents’ email address, parents’ phone number, and date of birth. Additionally, we may need extra information from you that will be publicly viewable on our services, such as a profile photo. Other services, such as commerce items, may need you to give a debit or credit card number and the account information linked with it.
Naturally, you will also furnish us with whatever information you transmit to us via our services. Bear in mind that individuals who read your material can always download or duplicate it. Thus, the same common sense that applies to the internet in general also applies to KidPick: Do not transmit or share messages or information that you would not want someone to save or share.
When you contact customer support or engage with us in any other way, we will gather whatever information you voluntarily provide or that is necessary to resolve your inquiry.

Justifications for the Use of Your Information
Your nation permits us to use your personal information only under particular circumstances. These are referred to as “legal basis,” and we normally rely on one of four of them:
Appropriate interest. We may use your information if we have a genuine interest in doing so. For instance, we need to use your information to deliver and enhance our services, which include safeguarding your account, providing customer assistance, and assisting you in discovering material that we believe you’ll enjoy. A critical point to remember about legitimate interest is that our interests do not outweigh your right to privacy. As a result, we rely on legitimate interest only when we believe our use of your data does not significantly impact your privacy, is expected by you, or there is a compelling reason to do so.
Consent. In certain instances, we will request your agreement to use your information for specified reasons. If we do, we will ensure that you can cancel your consent via our services or your device’s permissions. Even if we are not relying on your agreement to use your information, we may ask for permission to access some types of data, such as contacts and location.
Legal compulsion. We may be obliged to use your personal information to comply with the law, such as in response to legitimate legal processes or to protect our users. Under some circumstances, our policy is to notify KidPickers when we receive a legal process requesting their account information.
You have the right to object to the way your information is used by us. With several categories of data, we’ve given you the option of simply deleting it if you no longer want us to process it. For other forms of data, we’ve given you the option of completely removing the function.
We may collect, transport, store, and process your personal information in the United States and other countries outside of the country in which you live. Whenever we disclose information on EU users outside the EU, we ensure that an appropriate channel for data transfer is in place.
If you live in California, you are protected by California law, including the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). These rights are detailed in our California Privacy Notice; please review it.
Our services are meant for — and geared toward — those above the age of 13. That is why we never intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Additionally, we may restrict how we collect, use, and retain certain information about EU users aged 13 to 16. This may imply that we are unable to deliver some features to these users in some situations. If we are required to rely on permission as a legal basis for processing your information and your nation requires parental approval, we may collect and use your information with your parent’s consent.
