Keeping children safe online
We care deeply about making sure children are safe online and have extra privacy processes in place to make sure we’re keeping our younger fans safe when they’re using our online channels. In fact, some features have age gates so as to prevent children from inadvertently using such features. 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 conduct background checks on everyone who connects with innoVationGirls members. We also record all digital meetings and store them to ensure the safety of our members.
We also follow all relevant laws for children aged between 7 and 17 and when it comes to personal data, we consider anyone under the age of 16 years a child.
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
Requesting parental consent
Asking for low-level consent by email
If we need to collect a child’s personal information, we’ll ask for parental consent according to COPPA legal requirements. We’ll send the child’s parent or guardian an email explaining what information we’re collecting, how we plan to use it and ask the parent to give or deny their consent. If we don’t receive parental consent in a reasonable time, we’ll delete all information we’ve collected from the child including the adult’s contact information that we asked for in order to request consent.
Asking for high-level ‘verifiable consent’
If we want to share a child’s personal information publicly or with a third party, we’ll seek a higher level of parental consent than the email request described above. We may ask for verification by credit card or other payment method (with a nominal charge involved), verification over the phone or through a video chat to a trained customer service representative or a signed consent form to be returned to us by mail, email attachment or fax. We may give the parent a guardian a PIN or password that they’ll be able to use in future communications to confirm the adult’s identity.
What if a parent or guardian hasn’t been contacted for consent?
If a child under the age of 16 accesses an online channel that’s designed for children by using an age gate, we’ll email the child’s parent or guardian before collecting any personal information from the child. If you think that your child is taking part in an online activity that collects their personal information and you or another parent/guardian hasn’t received an email letting you know or seeking your consent, please contact our Data Privacy Officer at richardz@innoVationGirls.com. We won’t use email addresses provided for parental consent for any other purpose unless the adult has expressly opted in to marketing emails or taken part in an activity which allows email contact.
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, membership, or service being unavailable to the child in future.
If a child has a registered INNOVATIONGIRLS LLC. 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 INNOVATIONGIRLS LLC. ID account
Getting in touch with our customer service team.
If you’d prefer to contact us, please let us know your child’s username along with the 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.
If we make material changes to how we use Personal Information collected from a child under the age of 16, we’ll tell their parent or guardian by email and ask for ‘verifiable parental consent’ for the new uses of the child's personal information.
Sharing information we have consent to share with others
If we’ve received high-level parental consent to share a child’s personal information publicly, we may also share personal information with our service provides or legal authorities. We may share information with our service providers including software solution companies, online security partners and customer services. Our contracts with these companies make sure they only use personal data for the agreed purpose.
We may share personal information to meet legal processes or if disclosure is required by law. As allowed by relevant laws, we may also share personal information collected from children to:
Comply with a request from to a law enforcement or public agency (including schools or children services) or to avoid liability
Make a disclosure that we believe may stop a crime being committed
