Piano Planet Services are intended for users of all ages. Our sites and applications offer a variety of activities that may collect information from Minor children. Below we summarize potential instances of collection and outline how and when we will provide parental notice and/or seek parental consent. In any instance that we collect Personal Information from a Minor child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the activity request or allow the Minor child to continue to participate in the activity, and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. In the event we discover we have collected Personal Information from a Minor child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA’s or GDPR-K requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent’s consent for that collection.
Because COPPA and GDPR-K define different ages for minor children, for the purpose of clarity we define a minor as children who are under 13 years of age within the USA and under 16 years of age outside the USA (“Minor(s)”).
Certain activities on our sites and applications allow Minors to create or manipulate content and save it on Piano Planet Services. Some of these activities do not require Minors to provide any Personal Information and therefore may not result in notice to the parent or require parental consent. If an activity potentially allows a Minor to insert Personal Information in their created content, we will either pre-screen the submission to delete any Personal Information, or we will seek verifiable parental consent by email for the collection. Examples of created content that may include Personal Information are stories or other open-text fields, and drawings that allow text or free-hand entry of information. If, in addition to collecting content that includes Personal Information, and Piano Planet also plans to post the content publicly or share it with a third party for the third party’s own use, then we will obtain a higher level of parental consent.
Certain activities that are directed to Minors allow users to communicate directly with other users by means of a chat system. In most cases, these chat systems employ community rules and manual moderation that are intended to prevent the communication of both Personal Information and vulgar language. Our live moderators may encourage other users to flag inappropriate communications. We strongly encourage all Minor children who use these interactive features through our sites or applications or third party applications to never provide Personal Information about themselves or any third party, and certainly never to attempt to circumvent our rules and/or moderation. WE ALSO STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT PARENTS CAREFULLY SUPERVISE THEIR MINOR CHILDREN WHEN THEIR MINOR CHILDREN PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE ACTIVITIES. We take all these steps to try to keep your Minor child safe while using our Piano Planet Services, but there is no substitute for your close watch over what your Minor children do, say, and who they talk to.
If you are a parent of a Minor child who uses the Piano Planet Services, you have the legal right under GDPR-K and COPPA to order us to delete or redact their Personal Information. You can request deletion of your Personal Information by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are living in the USA and under 13 years old OR outside the USA and under 16 years old, then you are considered a Minor child by GDPR and COPPA law and this section will help you.
If you’re a Minor using Piano Planet, it’s important to keep yourself safe, so please follow this checklist:
Never share any Personal Information with Piano Planet without getting permission from your parent or guardian first, and if you’re sharing something new make sure you have permission first.
Never publicly share any of your: Last name, Street, City, Birthday, Picture/video of your face, any information that could be used to personally identify you, and never share information about your friends so that you can keep them safe also.
Don’t talk to anyone without your parent or guardian’s permission, and if someone messages you, show your parent or guardian first and ask them what to do.
If you’re ever unsure what to do, feel scared, confused or threatened tell your parent or guardian right away, and if needed they can get in contact with us at email@example.com.
