We want to explain below what we do with your personal data, where we keep it etc.
2. How we use your personal data
- In this Section 2 we have set out:
- the general categories of personal data that we may process;
- in the case of personal data that we did not obtain directly from you, the source and specific categories of that data;
- the purposes for which we may process personal data; and
- the legal bases of the processing. When we refer to a "legal basis", we mean the provision of the General Data Protection Regulation under which we conduct the relevant processing.

- Please do not supply any other person's personal data to us, unless we prompt you to do so.
There are two categories of data we process and store about you.
The first is the data you give to us directly, for example during registration you might give us your email address, name, and so on. We'll also ask for your child's name. We do all of that in order to provide you with our service and products, which require this data to give you a custom experience.
The second type is (usually non-identifiable) data provided to us by third-parties, like your IP address or browser type, which we collect in order to give you a personal version of our products.
There may also be legal grounds upon which we store and pass on your data to law enforcement, if necessary.
3. Providing your personal data to others
- We may provide your personal data to our third party service providers, strictly to the extent necessary for them to provide the relevant services to us. We will never do so for advertising purposes. We do not pass any identifiable child data to any third parties. We do not collect any other personally identifiable information ourselves beyond first names, in compliance with COPPA regulations.
- Out service providers include
- Our hosting service providers, DigitalOcean, Inc., and Google, Inc., who may process certain information in hosting our platform, data and systems.
- Functional Software, Inc. ('Sentry') to whom we send usage and crash data to help us fix problems in the application.
- Each of these service providers may further provide your personal data to their own service providers who provide necessary support functions (for instance, the third parties who host their servers). However, such disclosure will again only be for the purpose of providing the relevant services to us.
- We may also provide your personal data to any acquirer of our business or assets (in which case our accumulated data, including your personal data, will be comprised in our business or assets).
- We may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law, to prevent an unlawful act, or otherwise to appropriate authorities in connection with any civil action or criminal report or investigation relating to your activities.
- Otherwise, we will not provide your personal data to any third parties. In particular, we do not provide your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.
We don't sell your personal data, or give it to third-parties for commercial reasons. We do, however, store and process your data using third-parties who help us deliver our service. For example providers who host our Site and App.
4. International transfers of your personal data
- In this Section 4, we provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
- The hosting facilities for our App is located within the EEA. The hosting for our Site and App is provided by DigitalOcean, Inc. and Google, Inc.. Our App is hosted on their servers in Amsterdam (DigitalOcean, Inc.) and Ireland (Google, Inc.), and we may transfer all personal data to our hosting service providers in that country. To improve the speed of delivery of our website, versions of our Site are hosted on servers in multiple global locations.
- Some of the third parties to whom we may transfer your personal data, discussed in Section 3, may be located outside the EEA or may transfer your personal data to their own service providers located outside the EEA. If so, then we will ensure that transfers will only be made to countries in respect of which the European Commission has made an "adequacy decision", or otherwise will only be made with appropriate safeguards, such as the use of standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission. You may contact us to enquire about such safeguards so that you may obtain a copy of them or so that we may direct you to them.
We store your data in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, some of our third-party service providers may store your personal data in the United States or elsewhere outside the EEA. Each of these providers has their own data protection policies.
5. Retaining and deleting personal data
- This Section 5 sets out our data retention policies, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.
- Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.
- We will retain and delete your personal data as follows:
- all account and service data will be retained for as long as we provide products or services to you, or as long as you have an account with us. Twelve months after the end of such period it will be deleted from our systems;
- enquiry and correspondence data will be retained in accordance with our email archiving policies. Typically this will provide for data to be archived after twelve months, and deleted entirely after six years;
- transaction data will be retained for six years; and
- usage data will be retained for between three and twelve months from collection, and then deleted. As an exception, usage data relating to App performance, or aggregated usage data from which no individual can be identified, may be retained by us indefinitely, as this provides us with important insights into user behavior and is a significant business asset.
- We may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.
We'll store your data until either you ask us to delete it, or until we no longer need it to provide our service to you, at which point it will be deleted according to our storage policies, typically not for some time.
6. Your rights
- In this Section 7, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. You can read guidance from the Information Commissioner's Office at www.ico.gov.uk for a fuller explanation of your rights.
- Your principal rights under data protection law are:
- the right to access;
- the right to rectification;
- the right to erasure;
- the right to restrict processing;
- the right to object to processing;
- the right to data portability;
- the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
- the right to withdraw consent.
- You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, to access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
- You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
- In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data. These might include if:
- the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
- you withdraw consent to consent-based processing;
- the processing is for direct marketing purposes. However, there are certain general exclusions of the right to erasure, for example where processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or in connection with legal claims.
- In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data and will observe the restrictions on processing except in the case of processing permitted by applicable law (for example, in connection with legal claims or for reasons of public interest).
- You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for:
- the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or
- the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
- If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is for legal claims.
- You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
- To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is consent, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
- If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
- To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
- You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us.
You have the right to change your data or have your data deleted. You also have the right to complain if we are mis-using your personal data.
