If Kido Education (Singapore) Pte Ltd is sold or integrated with another business your personal data may be disclosed to our advisers, or any prospective purchasers and their advisers, and will be passed on to the new owners of the business.

CHILD DATA:

This section explains our information collection, disclosure, parental consent practices and parental choice procedures with respect to information provided by you about your children under the age of 13 (“Child” or “Children”).

Collection: Kido Home collects information about children directly from Parents, who provide us with the Child’s first name, age, type of schooling, location, and additional notes for the Teacher. In addition, Children may share information about themselves during Classes. The Kido Home class sessions may take place over online videos in which video images and audio of the Children are recorded. No information is collected directly from Children until they are in the course session.

Use and Disclosure: Kido Home shares the name, age, location, and any notes Parents have provided about their Child to the Teacher, in order to allow the Teacher to provide Classes. This information shall also be treated as part of the Parent’s Personal Data and may be shared as described in the Disclosure section above for business transfers; to vendors and service providers; and to comply with legal requirements. Children may also share information about themselves with the Teacher and the rest of their class during the Class session voluntarily. While Kido Home expects Teachers and all others Users to abide by our standards of conduct, please note that we cannot control or monitor what personal information your Child shares with Teachers or other classmates, nor what those classmates ultimately do with that information, and disclaim all responsibility in that regard.

Class Video Recordings: As described above, Kido Home records video of students or children and teachers during Kido Home classes (“Class Recordings”). The Class Recordings are made available by Kido Home to the Teacher of the Class and may be shared by the Teacher for the entire class (and their Parents) to view (the “Permitted Recipients”). Kido Home may also use Class Recordings to provide feedback to Teachers, for customer support, and for compliance and safeguarding purposes. Kido Home will obtain additional parental consent before we use any Class Recordings for promotional or other purposes.

We utilize reasonable means to (i) limit the ability of Teachers to create copies of the Class Recordings or to share the Class Recordings with anyone aside from Permitted Recipients, and also (ii) severely restrict the ability of Permitted Recipients to download or re-share the Class Recordings. While we expect Teachers and Permitted Recipients to abide by our standards of conduct, please note that we cannot control or monitor what such third parties ultimately do with Class Recordings, and disclaim all responsibility in that regard.

Parental Consent: Kido Home obtains verifiable parental consent where appropriate before collecting Personal Data from your Child. If you do not consent, then we will not collect, use or disclose any personal information about your Child, and your Child will not be allowed to use the Services in any way.

Parental Choices and Controls: At any time, you can refuse to permit us to collect further Personal Data from your Children in association with your account. You can request that we delete from our records the Personal Data we have collected in connection with that account, subject to certain restrictions. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account, membership, or other service. You may update your Child’s information by logging onto your account. You can contact Kido Home to request access to, change, or delete your Child’s personal information by sending an email to us at dpo@kido.school. A valid request to delete personal information will be accommodated within a reasonable time. In addition to the foregoing, we will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to delete personal information belonging to Children when it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected.
