Please read the following privacy policy (the “Policy”) to understand how your personal information will be collected and treated as you make full use of the Site as well as all related applications, software, and services (together, and collectively with the Site, the “Service”). For purposes of this Policy, “personal information” means information by which a person may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other identifier by which a person may be contacted online or offline.

If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Service. By accessing or using our Service, you agree to this Policy.

Your continued use of this Service after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

1.              Children under the Age of 13

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this section, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information.

This section notifies parents of:

      The types of information we may collect from children.

      How we use the information we collect.

      Our practices for disclosing that information.

      Our practices for notifying and obtaining parents’ consent when we collect personal information from children, including how a parent may revoke consent.

      All operators that collect or maintain information from children through this Service.

This section only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements the other provisions of this Policy. Only the other provisions of this Policy apply to teens and adults.

1.1.          Information We Collect from Children.

Children can access some parts of the Service without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Service.

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT INCLUDES PERSONAL INFORMATION HELD IN RECORDINGS OF TEACHING SESSIONS, AS DESCRIBED IN GREATER DETAIL IN SECTION 4.

1.1.1.      Information We Collect Directly‌

A child must provide us with the following information to register with the Service: the child’s name, birth date, grade level, and a parent’s email address. We also require the child to create a member name and password. We may request additional information from your child, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.

1.1.2.      Automatic Information Collection and Tracking

We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Service and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:

      One or more persistent identifiers that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites and online services;

      Personal information held in recordings of teaching sessions (see Section 4, Audio/Visual Recordings)

      Information that identifies a device’s location (geolocation information).

We also may combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about you or your child that we collect online.

For more information about our automatic information collection practices, including how you can opt out of certain information collection, see Section 3.2, Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies; and Section 7, Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.

1.3.           Our Practices for Disclosing Children’s Information

We do not share, sell, rent, or transfer children’s personal information other than as described in this Section 1.

We may disclose aggregated information about many of our users, and information that does not identify any individual. In addition, we may disclose children’s personal information:

      To third parties we use to support the internal operations of our Service and who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purpose and to keep the information confidential.

      If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with any court order or subpoena or to respond to any government or regulatory request.

      If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Savvy, our customers or others, including to:

o   protect the safety of a child;

o   protect the safety and security of the Service; or

o   enable us to take precautions against liability.

      To law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.

In addition, if Savvy is involved in a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Savvy’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal information we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.

1.4.           Accessing and Correcting Your Child’s Personal Information

At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information (subject to the limitations in Section 9), and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information.

You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by:

      Logging into your child’s account and visiting his or her account profile page.
