We have developed this policy statement to reflect our commitment to kids safety, security and privacy. Users on Kidzworld have access to a great website for kids. We do try to educate them to be aware of what they are doing and to take steps to ensure their own safety.
Kidzworld and founder Allen Achilles are tireless advocates of Internet privacy. As the only fully moderated website for kids, we take extraordinary measures to ensure and secure the privacy and safety of our kids.
Our registration form requires kids to provide us with contact information: first name and initial, email address and demographic information (age, gender, and state/province). This information is used to get in touch with users when and if necessary. For kids 13 and older, we send their parent/guardian an email notifying them that they have registered at Kidzworld and provided us with personally identifiable information. For kids 12 and under we obtain permission from the kids parent/guardian before the registration is completed. We send them a confirmation email to which they must respond.
Kidzworld does not disclose users personal information to anyone, at any time, for any reason. However, in the event of the sale or merger of the company, Kidzworld.com, Inc., the personal information collected by Kidzworld about its’ user in the normal course of its business will be shared with the partner company or successor company upon completion of the subject acquisition or merger. Parents or guardians can review their child’s personal information once we receive verifiable identification. Verifiable consent can be given by one of the following methods: following the link provided in the confirmation email, provide a signed form via postal mail or facsimile or even giving us a call. Upon request, parents may delete or prohibit the further collection of their child’s personal information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org and clearly state the nature of their inquiry. Any contact made with our member kids is done so through the facilities of Kidzworld.
Another way that Kidzworld accesses information about kids is through IP addresses. An IP address is something that is unique to your computer, and is used to identify and collect broad demographic information (like age, gender, regional information and generic interests). As a safe website for kids, tools such as these can be used positively and in the sole interest of protecting the privacy and safety of all kids online.
Kidzworld also uses a form for kids to request information, products and services. We collect users unique identifiers (their Kidzworld on-screen name) to fulfill these requests.
Kidzworld hosts online contests for kids in which we ask entrants for their e-mail address. This information is used solely to contact winners. Information collected for contests is deleted once winners have been confirmed. Participation in contests is open to all visitors, registered or not.
The KW Zone is a unique component of the Kidzworld experience which makes it a great website for kids. In The KW Zone kids can create an online profile where they can design backgrounds, upload pictures and videos, make friends and interact with other kids with similar interests. All content posted is strictly moderated, but kids are still cautioned that anything they upload (and is subsequently approved) can be viewable across the web. We recommended that the kids only upload images and information that they are willing to share with other kids.
Kidzworld has safe, moderated online chat rooms for kids, kids message boards and discussion groups. These are only accessible by our registered users. We make our users aware that postings and conversations in these areas becomes public information. Kids are not allowed to disclose any personally identifiable information. Their chosen username is their only identity at Kidzworld.
Kidzworld has a kids only chat room and kids message boards which are moderated at all times by experienced Kidzworld staff. Our kids only chat room is open from 11am to 7:00pm Pacific Time (PST). Our chat moderators take extraordinary steps to ensure that the kids do not divulge personal information. Users who attempt to disclose, or request personal information will be removed from both the kids chat room and kids message boards for 24 hours. If problems continue with the same user, their IP address may be permanently blocked and future access denied from that IP address.
Kidzworld offers numerous public domain e-cards for kids to send to family and friends. To send an e-card, kids must know the email address of the person that they are sending to. Thus, it is assumed they already know this person in real life. The senders personal information is not disclosed to the recipient as all e-cards are sent from the secure email@example.com email address. Information entered in the e-card is not stored or retained by Kidzworld.
As the best website for kids, our site contains links to other sites. Although Kidzworld is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other sites, all sites accessible from Kidzworld are screened. As a safe website for kids, we want to ensure that these sites comply with our standards. When a user clicks on an outbound link, they are first directed to a re direct page informing them that they are about to leave Kidzworld.
Occasionally Kidzworld communicates with the registered user kids by email. Kidzworld allows kids to opt-out of receiving communications from us in the registration form. If a user wishes to opt-out after completing the registration form, they can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking on the Unsubscribe link in the next newsletter.
