At MoneyPrep Inc. (“MoneyPrep” “We” or “Us”) we care very much about the privacy of you and your children. As creators of platforms for children, we comply with The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
A few key points upfront:
WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In the course of providing our App services, We collect certain information. Some of the information is the information you voluntarily provide to us, like an email address. Other information We collect automatically as you use the App, like your login activities. We only collect your information in furtherance of our legitimate interest of providing you with the App services, and internally to evaluate our efforts to improve the functionality of the App, and we do not sell this information.
Automatic Collection: Like most digital companies, we may use common technologies such as cookies and other technologies to better understand users’ interactions with the App. These technologies help us keep track of user behavior, tell us which parts of our App people have visited and are using, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of activities. We may also collect data related to the device on which the App is loaded. They store this data securely and do not share it with anyone else. We are using a restricted version of their analytics product designed for use with apps for children, meaning that the anonymous data created from our Apps isn’t used anywhere else in their system, it’s only for us to improve the apps, including information on App crashes, usage time, games played and problems missed. For a full list of our third-party analytics services, please click here.
Volunteered: In order for you to use the App, a parent or guardian must create an account. This account safeguards your progress on MoneyPrep, allows you access your progress across multiple devices, and allows multiple related people to use the App on the same device. When you (parent or guardian) create an account, register with us, send us an email, or provide other information with us in any other way, we will collect and store the information you share. You do not have to share this information with us, but without it, you may not be able to access certain features or participate in certain aspects of the App.
The App will track each child’s Player Data separately to provide personalized activities and levels for each profile.
The App will collect children’s Player Data through persistent identifiers that are then linked to individual Player ID. Information collected from our App is used for internal purposes to provide and improve the functionality of our App and for use and benefit of the children, schools, and parents only. We rely on teachers and schools to obtain parental consents if and when they are necessary.
ACCORDINGLY, MONEYPREP WILL NOT, USE ANY PLAYER DATA IN ANY WAY OTHER THAN IN CONNECTION WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES.
MoneyPrep will not sell or lease any Player Data for any advertising, marketing, or other purposes.
We will keep Player Data only as long as it continues to be part of our providing the Services and to maintain a record of our means to communicate with users. Player Data is not shared with third parties for marketing or to serve ads to students.
Credit Cards: You can become a subscriber by purchasing a subscription within the App. When You subscribe to our subscription plan, the order process may request a credit card or other payment information (i.e. PayPal). Order information is done through the iTunes and Android App Stores directly and we do not collect or process or store any of your Personal Information or credit card information during the billing process ourselves. We use a third-party service provider to process payments made on our App. Sales made via the app itself are processed through the marketplace partners directly (i.e. iTunes or Google Play), so your credit card information is not collected and retained by Us.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We collect and use your information to provide the App services, to provide support for the App services, to respond to user requests and inquiries, to maintain a record of our dealings with users, to facilitate your use of and our administration and operation of the App services; and to evaluate how to improve our offerings.
Personally identifiable information, or Personal Data as such term is defined by GDPR below (“Personal Information”), is information that can identify you or your child individually, such as an individual’s full name or physical mail address. The only personally identifiable information we collect is an email address. Your Personal information may be shared as follows:
If you give us permission, we may share the Personal Information of an adult account holder (teachers and parents) with third parties who might send you marketing and promotional information.
We may also disclose the Personal Information of an adult account holder (teachers and parents) if permitted or required by law or where we believe such action is necessary in order to protect or defend our interests or the interests of our users or business partners.
For the most part, when children use our App, we do not require any Personal Information from them, and we have taken steps so that information about a child/student requested from a parent/teacher is non-Personal Information such as a nickname or child’s first name and last initial only.
Collection of Personal Information that is directed to children under 13 (“Children’s Platforms”) is governed by the principles of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), a U.S. law designed to protect the online privacy of children under the age of 13. We will obtain parental consent before collecting any Personal Information on our Services, unless the request for information falls within an exception that would be permitted under COPPA. We do not condition a child’s participation in our App on the disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
Parents may contact us (at email@example.com) to review, update or delete any of their children’s personal information that we may have collected and to elect for us not to collect any additional personal information from their children.
