Welcome to Xooloo Parent, Xooloo Digital Coach, Xooloo App Kids and Xooloo Internet.
The Xooloo App Kids Application can only be installed by a parent or a legal guardian for use by children. If you are under 13 or between 13 and 18 years of age (or such older age as required by the laws of your state of residency), you must have a parent or a legal guardian approve all information, and ensure that the parent or legal guardian’s email address and contact information is used at all times.
If we make material changes to how we collect and use Personal Information (as defined below) of children under the age of 18, including children under the age of 13, we will first notify parents by email in order to obtain verifiable parental consent for the new uses of the child’s Personal Information.
Children’s Privacy. We do not knowingly collect information about children under 13 years old through the Site. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from a child under 13 other than in a manner authorized by law, we will delete that information from our database.
What Personal Information Does Xooloo Collect through the Application?
The information we collect through our Applications helps us provide you with services specific to your needs and interests.
We collect and store Personal Information from any user who creates a Xooloo account and/or installs the Application. We may collect additional information during the use of the Application.
We collect the following Personal Information from you as a parent or legal guardian, to create and manage your account: your email address, your child’s first name, birthdate and gender. On Xooloo Parents we will also collect the type of device used (Android or iOS) and the device language. Additional information may be collected passively from your child device. For the Xooloo Digital Coach Application, we may collect the following Personal Information from your children device to provide our service: consulted websites addresses if web protection is enabled, messages sent by the children within Xooloo Digital Coach to ask their parents for extra time, the brand and model of the device, the device language, the OS version, the list of applications installed on the device, the time and duration of applications usage as well as the time zone set on the device when the application was setup. If the application is used on a device with a SIM card, the following information may also be collected: the time and duration of incoming and outgoing calls as well as the related numbers, the ICCID number of the SIM card and its phone number, the contact lists (name and number) after authorization is provided. Finally the application also lets children send text messages to the Xooloo support using a form available from the application. Messages are received by Xooloo support staff who can only reply to the parents to help them resolve an issue raised by the child.
We use this information to administer your account and provide our services generally, including without limitation: choosing a protection mode, select applications a child user can have access to, select contacts you authorize a child user to receive call from and to make call to, to set a daily time usage and also a time schedule for the different app categories, access categories-based reporting. The information collected is used to provide detailed information to parents only, who have installed the Application on their children’s devices and who use the Application Xooloo Parents or the Parents Web interface.
We sometimes use non-personally identifiable or “aggregate information” that we collect to improve our services. Your child’s application usage will also be used as aggregate data to offer average usage data to all users. This is how you will also get the average for children of the same age and gender as yours. Aggregate data is not information that could be used to identify you or your child or to contact you or your child. If as a parent, you do not want your children app usage to be used anonymously you have the option to go to the Xooloo Parent Application under Family setting / Family stats. In that case, you and your children will not be able to be informed of the average use of others children of the same age and gender which is part of the service.
For the Xooloo App Kids Application, that was created to allow a parent or legal guardian to share their devices with their children and can only be installed by a parent or legal guardian for use by their child, we may collect the following Personal Information from the device that use the Application: the parent email address, the password chosen by the parents, the OS version, the device language, the brand and model of the device and the list of applications selected by your children to create a wish list. This will then prompt an email to the parents allowing you to set permissions to allow your child to use the selected applications.
Tell-A-Friend: Parents if you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our Application you will get 1 month free of use for each friend you tell about the Application and up to a maximum of 12 months free. Your friends will each get 1 month free of use of the Application after their 30-days trial period. You will be able to choose among different modes of communication to contact your friend. You will then send your friend a message inviting them to use the Application. We do not store this information for any reason. This section of the application or the web site is password protected so that only parents are allowed to use this section.
For Xooloo Internet, we do not collect Personal Information when Xooloo Internet is used on its own. When Xooloo Internet is used with Xooloo Digital Coach and Web protection enabled, Xooloo Internet automatically protects the Web navigation.
