Privacy Notice for Mobile App Users
• Childcare Information. The Mobile App collects and maintains information about your child’s educational experience from childcare center staff including daily reports, attendance, photos, and other information.
• Anonymous Data. The Mobile App collects anonymous data from every Mobile App user to monitor traffic and fix bugs. This information may include web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a time stamp for the request.
You may view, change and remove your data associated with your profile. Should you choose to modify or delete your account, please contact KinderCare Family Support toll free at 888-525-2780 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also modify your notification preferences by clicking the appropriate link included in the footer of email notifications generated through the Mobile App.
• Emails. As a Mobile App user, you may receive promotional emails relating to KinderCare, HiMama, or third parties that may interest you.
• Text Messages. When you register or create a user profile on the Mobile App, HiMama will ask for your wireless number to allow KinderCare to send you informational text messages related to your childcare services. You can unsubscribe from text messages by replying STOP or UNSUBSCRIBE to any of these text messages. Messaging and data charges may apply to any text message you receive or send. Please contact your wireless carrier if you have questions about messaging or data charges.
• Photos, Videos and Comments. One of the Mobile App’s features is the ability for childcare center staff to upload and share photos and videos of enrolled children, and the ability for parents and guardians to upload photos and videos and to post comments via the Mobile App. When childcare center staff use the photo or video feature, the Mobile App uses a tagging functionality to prompt the staff member to identify each child in the photo or video, whether alone or in a group setting, and allows the staff member to share the photo or video with the parents and guardians of identified children, as well as others the parent or guardian authorizes to receive updates via the Mobile App. If you register or create a user profile on the Mobile App, childcare center staff may take photos or videos of your child and share those photos or videos via the Mobile App, email or text message. If you prefer that photos or videos of your child not be shared with other Mobile App users, then you can request that childcare center staff only take photos or videos of your child, and do so singly and not in groups, and also only share those images with you. In this case, if childcare center staff identify your child (via tagging functionality) as appearing in a group photo or video, the Mobile App will alert the staff member to not share the photo or video with other Mobile App users. If this is your preference, please contact KinderCare Family Support toll free at 888-525-2780 or via email at email@example.com, or email your KCE childcare Center Director. If you do not consent to your child appearing in any photos or videos and/or withdraw photo and video consent altogether, you should delete your Mobile App user account and inform your Center Director that you do not want your child to appear in individual or group photos or videos.
Using the Mobile App. To use the Mobile App, you must have a compatible mobile telephone or handheld device, Internet access (if required by the Mobile App), and the necessary minimum specifications (“Software Requirements”) to use the Mobile App. The Software Requirements for Apple iOS devices and Android OS devices can be found on the relevant App Store page. The Mobile App software may be upgraded from time to time to add support for new functions and services. The Mobile App may request certain privacy permissions from time to time including, but not limited to, access to your device camera or choosing images from your device or access to your device microphone and associated features.
You acknowledge that the terms of agreement with your respective mobile network provider will continue to apply when using the Mobile App. Data and messaging charges may apply to your use of the Mobile App or any text messaging or photo sharing features you use via the Mobile App. You may also incur third-party charges. You accept responsibility for any such charges that arise. If you are not the bill payer for the mobile telephone or handheld device being used to access the Mobile App, you will be assumed to have received permission from the bill payer for using the Mobile App.
The Mobile App is currently made available to you for your personal (noncommercial) use and may be amended or withdrawn, or the Mobile App or services may incur a charge, at any time and for any reason.
Children Under 16. The Mobile App is not intended for use by children under 16 years of age. KinderCare does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16 who may download or use the Mobile App, and does not want to include any such information in our customer databases without first obtaining parental consent. If you are under 16, do not use the Mobile App or provide any information, make purchases, or use interactive features via the Mobile App. Any personal information entered by a child under 16 without verification of parental consent will be deleted if discovered.
Your Rights. You have the right to submit a complaint or object to the Mobile App’s collection and use of your information at any time, or to require the review, transmission, change, or deletion of your personal information. You may also have the right to request certain information regarding disclosure of personal information collected via the Mobile App to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You can exercise these rights, express concerns, or obtain additional information about the use of your personal information by e-mail at support@HiMama.com or toll free at (800) 905-1876 or by contacting KinderCare Family Support at 1-888-525-2780 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, or to request modifications, the Inclusion Services team can be reached through your Center or Site Director or through our Family Support Team. Our Family Support Team can be reached during Monday-Friday 6:00 AM – 5:00 PM PST at 888-525-2780.
