INFORMATION CONCERNING CHILD ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT (COPPA)

 

We strive to educate parents and kids about how to appropriately safeguard their privacy when using our Services. We are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), which requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about our information collection and use practices. COPPA also requires that we obtain parental consent before we allow children under the age of 13 to access and/or use our Services. We urge kids to always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we recommend that parents discuss with their children, restrictions regarding the online release of Personal Information (as defined below) to anyone they don’t know.

This policy is in accordance with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (also known as "COPPA"), among other applicable privacy laws, and outlines our practices in the United States regarding children's information collected from users of the Services.

We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections when it comes to children. Some of the Services are directed to children, while other Services or portions of them are intended for use by adults and teens age 13 and older. For Services that are directed to children or that allow children to submit personal information, we will collect, use, and disclose personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, with certain differences and specific practices as described below.

Personal Information

When you sign up to become a user of the Site (a “user”), you will be asked to provide us with certain Personal Information, such as your first name, last name, and email address.  When you register your child for a class, we will ask you to provide your email address, your name, and your credit card information. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to this information as “Personal Information.” We collect certain Personal Information about our child students directly from their parents or guardian when they register their child for a class. We will ask that parents or guardians provide us with the name of their child and [anything else you are asking for] to facilitate the class. Please note that children may share information about themselves during the Services. The Services may take place over online videos in which video images and audio of the children are recorded. No information is collected directly from children until they are in the course session. Other than the online contact information required to obtain parental consent, we do not collect any Personal Information from users under the age of 13 unless the user’s parent or legal guardian has first provided us with consent for that user to use the Services and disclose Personal Information to us. If you are a user under the age of 13, please do not send any Personal Information to us if we have not obtained prior consent from your parent or guardian. If we learn we have collected Personal Information from a user under the age of 13 without parental consent, or if we learn a user under the age of 13 has provided us Personal Information beyond what we request from him or her, in order to obtain parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a user under the age of 13 may have provided us Personal Information in violation of this Privacy Policy, please contact us at privacy@bachatavida.com.

Parental Consent

We obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting Personal Information from your child. In signing up for the Services, we require that you provide your credit card information in order to register your child for and pay for a class. If you do not consent, then we will not collect, use or disclose any Personal Information about your child, and your child will not be allowed to use the Services in any way.

Parent’s Rights Regarding Their Child’s Personal Information

As a parent, you have certain rights over the collection and sharing of your child’s information:

  • We will not require your child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Services;
  • You may review your child’s Personal Information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of your child’s information; and
  • You may agree to the collection of your child’s information, but still not allow us to disclose it to third parties unless that is part of our Services.

We may allow children to enter contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions, or receive a one-time from us. When we do that, we will collect the child's online contact information, and only this information, to enter them into the contest, and then we will only contact them when the contest ends to notify them if they have won or lost. We will then delete the online contact information we have collected. We will also collect the parent's email address to provide you with notice that your child has entered the promotion and made contact and to allow you an opportunity for you to opt your child out. We will use the collected information for the purpose of that promotion or communication, and then delete the information from our records once it is no longer required. We do not send text messages or other non-email messages (like chat) to children.

If we expect to contact a child more than once for a particular contest, we will collect the parent’s online contact information, provide the parent with direct notice of our information practices, and an opportunity to opt out.  We will not use the child’s online contact information for any other purpose and will ensure the security of the information.

At any time, you can refuse to permit us to collect Personal Information from your child and can request that we delete from our records the Personal Information we have collected. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account, membership, or other service. If you have any questions or concerns about our approach to children's privacy, or you want to access the data of your child, or update your child’s information, or request the deletion of your child's information, please contact us utilizing the contact information in the “How To Contact Us” section below. A valid request to delete personal information will be accommodated within a reasonable time. In addition to the foregoing, we will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to delete Personal Information belonging to children when it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected.

 Class Video

Please note that since the class will be interactive on the Zoom platform, your child may voluntarily provide information to us, such as their name, in addition to their likeness (video) and voice, as part of the instruction. As described above, we record video of students and instructors during online dance classes (“Class Recordings”). The Class Recordings are made available to attendees of the class only, and may be shared with the entire class (and their Parents) to view (the “Permitted Recipients”). We may also use Class Recordings to provide feedback to our instructors, for customer support, and for compliance purposes. We will obtain parental consent before we use any Class Recordings for promotional or other purposes. We utilize reasonable means to (i) limit the ability of instructors to create copies of the Class Recordings or to share the Class Recordings with anyone aside from Permitted Recipients, and also (ii) limit the ability of Permitted Recipients to download or re-share the Class Recordings. While we expect instructors and Permitted Recipients to abide by our standards of conduct, please note that we cannot control or monitor what such third parties ultimately do with Class Recordings, and disclaim all responsibility in that regard.
