Last Updated 01/11/2021


Scope

This Privacy Policy applies to our site https://kidzeyes.com and to sites and applications where this privacy policy is posted. This Policy describes how we treat personal information on the website by interacting with us, you consent to these practices.

Our privacy practices and children
Parents can review their children’s information by contacting us at privacy@kidzeyes.com. You may also request that we no longer collect information from your child or have your child’s information deleted at privacy@kidzeyes.com.


We collect information from and about you and children under 13.
We collect parent or guardian contact information. Children under 13 cannot participate in our program without your consent. If they attempt to register, we ask them only to provide their first name and your email address for the purposes of soliciting your permission for your child’s participation in the KidzEyes® research program.

In addition, we collect from you, your name, mailing address and last 4 digits of your social security number. This information is used to validate that you are in fact the person claimed to be in the information you are providing and can provide consent for your child’s participation.

We collect demographic information, like the gender and age of the adults and children in your household. We collect this as part of the registration process to help us determine the most fitting research projects for your children.

We collect information you submit or post. Only after we’ve gained your consent to do so, we collect information you or your kids submit to us as part of a survey, online discussion, or other research project, post on our sites, or communicate to us in other ways. We may also collect photos or videos from your child. We also collect information if you or your child contacts us.


We collect information in different ways.
We collect information directly. Only after gaining your consent to do so, we collect information if you create an account for you and your child with us or when you or your child takes part in a research project. We collect information if you or your child fills out a survey or participates in an online discussion or other research project. We also collect information if you or your child contacts us.

We collect information passively. We use tracking tools like browser cookies to collect information from you. We collect personal information about users over time when you use this Web site or app.

We get information about parents and guardians from third parties. For example, our business partners may share information about you with us. Social media platforms may also give us information.


We use information as disclosed and described here.
Unless permitted by law, we use children’s information only after getting parental consent. For example, if we are only going to use the information one time to respond to a direct request, or if we are using information obtained from a child to get parental consent. We also use children’s information as described in any request for parental consent. For example, we obtain your consent to use your child’s information to identify projects he or she may qualify for and to send invitations to take part in them directly to your child.

We use a parent’s or guardian’s email addresses to notify parents or guardians that their children have attempted to register on our site, or to communicate about your child’s account. We use the parent’s or guardian’s email address to inform you about available surveys, or other research opportunities sponsored by C+R Research as well as contact you to tell you about new features on our site.

We use information from you and your child for our market research purposes. For example, we use information from you and your child to produce reports about the research that our clients commission from us. This includes reports about issues relating to their business and
interests. We may share children’s information with our clients through reports we prepare for them, or with prospective clients and others through conference presentations. For example, we might use a photo or video of your child collected as part of a research project in a report.

We use children’s and adult’s information to improve our products and services. We may use information to make our website and products better. We might use information to customize you or your child’s experience with us.

We use children’s and adult’s information for security purposes. We may use your information to protect our company, our customers, and our websites.

We use children’s and adult’s information as otherwise disclosed or permitted by law.


We may share information with third parties.
We will share information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. For example, we share information with companies who help us send emails or operate our sites.

If you or your child uses our website, we use Google Analytics to collect information about the browser you’re using, your IP address, or how long you stayed on our site, or the site that referred you to our website. Google Analytics privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy

We share information with companies that administer surveys or handle mailings for us. We will also share children’s information with vendors who help us run our site and fulfill prizes. Our web site is not designed to allow children to make their personal information publicly available.

We share an adult’s information with our business partners. For example, with third parties who conduct research using our panel members. These partners may send adults information about products and services by mail or email.

We will share information to comply with the law or to protect ourselves. For example, we will share information to respond to a court order or subpoena.

We will share information with any successor to all or part of our business. For example, if part of our business is sold, we may include your information and your child’s as part of that transaction.

We will share information with other entities that C+R Research manages, controls, or owns, either wholly or in part.


You have certain choices about sharing practices.
You can stop receiving our emails by closing your account or your child’s
account with us at any time. Once your child’s account has been closed, you and the child won’t receive further communications from us relating to that child. If you have given other children in your household permission to join our KidzEyes® research panel, you and those children will continue to receive communications for us as long as their accounts are active.
