    1. Keeping children safe online

    We are committed to making sure children are safe online and have privacy processes in place to make sure we’re keeping our young users safe when they’re using our product, Services and partner channels. We also take all reasonable care to ensure that we don’t knowingly collect, store, use or process personal information from children who may use those features without proper parental consent. 

    We follow all relevant laws for children aged under age 13 when it comes to personal data.

    When we do process personal information from children, we take extra steps to protect their privacy including:

    • Making sure we tell parents what personal information we collect, store, use and process from their child and explaining whether we share the information
    • Meeting legal requirements by asking for parental consent to collect, use and process a child’s data and asking for consent to send their children information about our products and services
    • Limiting how we collect, store, use and process personal information from children so only data that is reasonably needed for them to take part in an online activity is collected
    • Giving parents access or the option to ask for access to personal information we’ve collected from their child – parents can also ask for their children’s personal information to be changed or deleted
    1. Collecting and using children’s information

    Our Website, channels and App may be used by children for the purpose of exploring, discovering, learning about our products/Services. Whenever we collect personal information from a child, we only keep the information for the time we need it to provide a service or for the time it’s legally required to be kept on record. Where personal information is needed for features to function, we’ll only ask for information that is reasonably required to take part in the activity.

    Here are some examples of times when we may collect children’s data:

    • When children visit our Website, use our App or register online

    Children can visit our Website or use our App to access a variety of Services/products, including its viewable content and competitions. During such access we collect the default Firebase Analytics data, such as gender, year of birth, age bracket, country, and device information.

    • When children share content they’ve created themselves

    Our Website may allow children to create, upload or use content themselves, such as sharing images of our assembled product, drawings, robot picture, configurations, programs and videos of our products as part of a competition or otherwise. Since only some of these features require personal information from the child, not all activities require consent from a parent or guardian.

    • When children receive push notifications

     Our App may send users ‘push notifications’ to their mobile phones or devices to tell them about updates (sometimes even when the app is not in use). Our apps are designed to be used by children as part of our product. If you would like your child to stop receiving push notifications from App, you can change the settings on the device your child’s using at any time.

    • When we collect location information 

    Our Website, channels and App are designed for use by adults and children. Our Website, channels and App may collection location information from where your child is accessing our Services. If you would like to stop us collecting this type of location information, you can adjust the settings on the device your child is using at any time.

    • What if we accidentally collect children’s data.

    If we discover that we’ve unintentionally collected information from a child in a way that doesn’t meet Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (“COPPA”) requirements, we will delete the information immediately.

    1. Parental choices and controls

    At any time, parents or guardians can refuse to allow us to use and collect further personal information from their child. Parents or guardians can ask us to delete the personal information we have collected in connection with their child’s account from our records. As personal information is required for some services, deleting a child’s records may result in an account, or service being unavailable to the child in future. If a child has a registered Revolution Robotics Foundation ID, parents or guardians can access, change or delete the personal information we’ve collected from their child by using their child’s username and password to log into their child’s Revolution Robotics Foundation ID account

    If you’d prefer to contact us, please let us know your child’s username along with your own telephone number and email address. We’ll need to confirm your identity as the parent or guardian of the child before granting access to the child’s personal information. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
