AutoAuto uses a variety of third-party service providers, such as YouTube to host our videos, Google Drive to host our slides, or Google Analytics to understand our Website usage. We may allow third-party service providers to place and read their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information through the Platform. This information is collected directly and automatically by these third parties, and AutoAuto does not participate in these data transmissions. AutoAuto will, wherever feasible, contractually obligate our third-party service providers to abide by the terms of this Privacy Notice.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Data. We will share it when required by law. We may share data in the context of a change of business, including a merger or acquisition.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We are required under COPPA, with limited exceptions, to obtain verifiable parental consent in order to collect, use or disclose personal information from Children. We obtain this consent one of two ways:
Parental consent. When necessary we will contact the Parent of a Child to get consent directly via email.
We do not let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect Personal Data from children under 13. We do not share this information publicly.
AutoAuto does not knowingly permit Children to register directly for our Properties. If AutoAuto learns that Personal Data of a Child user has been collected on our Properties without parental consent, then AutoAuto will take appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian (“Parent”) and discover that your child under the age of 13 has a registered account with our Properties without your consent, please alert AutoAuto at firstname.lastname@example.org, and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.
Some other features of our Properties may, however, permit a Child user to enter free-form text through which the Child user could enter Personal Data that could become visible to other users. This may occur, for instance, if a Child user enters Personal Data in answering an exercise problem or creating other projects on our Properties. If you are the Parent of a Child user, please advise your Child user of the risks of posting Personal Data on our Properties or any other online services, as information posted may be used by others without restriction.
As a Parent, you can choose to share information about your child as you deem appropriate. AutoAuto won’t share Personal Data about your Child or his/her progress with anyone other than you, your child and any permitted teachers/coaches, unless we receive your permission (or as otherwise noted in this Privacy Notice).
As a Parent, you have the ability to control information about your Child user. To review, update, or delete information collected from your Child user, you can do so by contacting us at email@example.com.
We adhere to the following COPPA tenants:
• We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
• Parents can review their child's personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information. This can be done by contacting AutoAuto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Parents can agree to the collection and use of their child's information, but still not allow disclosure to third-parties unless that's part of the service.
• Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child's information is shared by emailing our support staff or through calling our support number directly.
• Parents can give consent by contacting AutoAuto directly at email@example.com.
