Privacy policy

Last Updated May 14, 2024

Welcome! Here at A Kids Company About (“A Kids Co.”, “we,” or “us”), we respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. This Privacy Policy explains how we treat the information we collect about you when you visit our website, buy our books, listen to our podcasts, interact with us online, or through other products and services we offer (collectively, our “Services”) and how you can exercise your privacy rights.

By accessing our Services in any manner, you agree to our privacy practices as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, do not access or use our Services.

What is “Personal Data”?

When we say, “Personal Data,” we mean any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Personal Data might be described by category, for example:

  • Identifiers (e.g., name, email, telephone number, address, username);
  • Sensitive Personal Data (e.g., government identification number; precise geolocation; racial or ethnic origin; religious beliefs; health information; contents messages when we are not the recipient; in some cases, information about a known child);
  • Legally protected information (e.g., race, citizenship, marital status, sex);
  • Employment-related information (e.g., current or past employment);
  • Non-public educational information, including information protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. § 1232g, 34 C.F.R. Part 99);
  • Biometrics (e.g., DNA, face/voice prints, health data) and audio, electronic, visual, thermal, or olfactory information;
  • Commercial information (e.g., products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies);
  • Internet or other similar activity (e.g., browsing history; content interactions); or
  • Inferences drawn from Personal Data to create a profile about preferences, characteristics, trends, interests, behavior, attitudes, intelligence, or aptitudes.

Not all information is Personal Data. Information that publicly available information, used to create a summary or report that does not identify you, or anonymized may not be protected by law.

I Live in the U.S. What Are My Rights?

Depending on where you live or are located, you may have certain rights over your Personal Data that we collect and retain. This section provides informational notices for the state privacy laws that require companies to inform consumers about their privacy rights and provide a method to exercise those rights. Residents of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Nevada, Utah, Virginia, and other states offering privacy protections (each a “Consumer”) may have some or all of the following rights over their Personal Data:

  • Right to Correct. You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate Personal Data about you on our systems. If you become aware that the Personal Data that we hold about you is incorrect, or if your information changes, please inform us and we will update our records.
  • Right to Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Data that we collected from you and retained, with certain exceptions. A Kids Co. may permanently delete, deidentify, or aggregate the Personal Data in response to a request for deletion. If you submit a Privacy Request to delete your Personal Data, we will confirm the Personal Data to be deleted prior to its deletion, and we will notify you when your request is complete.
  • No Sale or Sharing. Some states entitle Consumers to opt-out of the sharing their Personal Data for targeted advertising or Personal Data sales. A Kids Co. does not exchange Personal Data with third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration. If this changes in the future, we will update this Privacy Policy and provide you with a method to opt-out.
  • Limited Use & Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Data. You may have the right to opt-out or limit our use of your sensitive Personal Data. A Kids Co. does not seek to collect sensitive Personal Data about any individual, and in no case do we disclose any sensitive Personal Data for the purpose of inferring characteristics about you or otherwise use your sensitive Personal Data without your consent. If this ever changes in the future, we will update this Privacy Policy and provide you with methods to opt-out or limit our use and disclosure of sensitive Personal Data.
  • Right to Disclosure. You may request that we disclose information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Data over the past 12 months, such as: (a) the categories of Personal Data we have collected about you; (b) the categories of sources for the Personal Data we have collected about you; (c) our business purpose for collecting or selling that Personal Data; (d) the categories of third parties with whom we share that Personal Data; and (e) if we sold or disclosed your Personal Data for a business purpose, two separate lists stating: (1) sales, identifying the Personal Data categories that each category of recipient purchased; and (2) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the Personal Data categories that each category of recipient obtained.

  • Right to Access. You have the right to request that we provide you with access to specific pieces of Personal Data we have collected about you over the past 12 months (also called a data portability request). If you submit an access request, we will provide you with copies of the requested pieces of Personal Data in a portable and readily usable format. Please note that A Kids Co. is prohibited by law from disclosing copies of certain pieces of Personal Data because the disclosure would create a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of the information, our business systems, or your account. In some cases, A Kids Co. is only required by law to respond to two access requests within a 12-month period. 
  • No Profiling. You may have the right to opt-out of automated profiling. A Kids Co. does not use automated technology to profile Consumers. If this changes in the future, we will update this posting and give you a method to opt-out.

Unless permitted by law, we will not: (a) deny you goods or services; (b) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services; (c) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (d) retaliate against you as an employee, applicant for employment, or independent contractor for exercising your privacy rights; or (v) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services, because you exercised a right available to you under applicable privacy laws.
