As of: Nov 29, 2012
Within this Policy we will provide you information regarding the following:
• How SchoolTube handles personal information* it receives, both on and off the Internet
• What information SchoolTube collects and how it collects it
• What you can do to control the information about you that SchoolTube collected, including certain changes you can make to that information
• How SchoolTube protects information it collects from misuse
· The differences in information solicited to create an account for a child versus an adult
· How we determine adult vs minor Accounts and our approval processes
General Guidelines for Information Collection and Use of Schooltube.com
SchoolTube collects and compiles statistical information about all visitors to our web site, even if they haven't registered. The information used to compile statistics is passed from a visitor's computer to our server each time a page is requested. This statistical information is logged and provides long-term usage data and trends that help SchoolTube allocate resources and better meet demands during peak usage. This information is not linked to the end user and is not considered personal information.
The information collected includes:
1. The type and version of your Operating System and Web Browser
2. Your computer's IP address
3. The date and time of your visit
4. What page you visited
5. What page you came from
When you register with SchoolTube, although we categorize you as a “Visitor” or a “Guest”, you are no longer anonymous. Your registration information is used to deliver SchoolTube education and outreach program material and to help SchoolTube develop future program material. Certain statistical information gathered from our subscribers is used to generate reports for governmental agencies. We must report this information because SchoolTube receives Grant money from the U.S. government. SchoolTube does not identify you by name in these reports; it only reports information in the aggregate.
Live Collected Information
SchoolTube often collects information from people who attend SchoolTube activities or events or who our staff members meet during the course of their duties. If we believe these people may be interested in the SchoolTube program material, we elect to subscribe them. If so, we notify them via e-mail and ask whether or not they want this material.
Registering for an Account
In order to create an account, users must provide information within a registration form. There are 3 types of accounts that a user may choose to register for: Child Account, Parent Account, Organization (or “Moderator”). Children under the age of 13 may not provide personally identifiable information, and due to the nature of the site, may not fully use the Services until a legal guardian / parent has given permission by creating a Parent Account or an Organization (“moderator”) account. Parents and Teachers/Organizations MUST provide valid proof of their identity before approving a child’s access to the Site. This validation is attained through one of three methods of verification (as stipulated by the FTC in COPPA legislation). These methods are: certified Social Security number, valid Credit Card, or faxed signature. Without valid proof of identity, a Parent or Organization cannot attain a full Account.
Information Collected from Children under 13
SchoolTube will not ask a child or young person under the age of 13 for more information than is reasonable in order to provide that student with the appropriate Internet Safety information on Youth Empowerment which SchoolTube offers. As stipulated by COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), Schooltube may only ask for non-personally identifiable information, such as a username and password. Schooltube will also request a parent or guardian (such as a Teacher) email address in order to attain approval and valid permission to use the Site.
Information Collected in Registration
· Child Account: age, username, password, and a parent or guardian (Teacher) email address.
· Parent Account: First name, last name, address, age, and either form of electronic identity verification: valid Social Security number or valid Credit Card
· Organization: Organization name, address, point person (Teacher) first name and last name, and either form of electronic identity verification: valid social security number or valid credit card number, or a signed/uploaded legal agreement with a valid signature.
Unsolicited Information (User Generated Content)
Schooltube does not allow children under the age of 13 to provide User Generated Content of any type, outside of registration, to the live Site. A child must be approved by a validated Adult Account (Parent or Teacher/Organization) in order to post content to the Site.
Content posted to the Site is then regulated by the Terms of Service both the child and adult agree to at Account creation.
Organization “Moderators” and site filters are in place to screen and remove any additional form of Personally Identifiable Information considered unacceptable for Schooltube.com.
