In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the app.

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in the educational activity in our Services, and we do not condition his or her participation in the disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary.

  • One or more persistent identifiers that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different devices and online services
  • Information that identifies a device’s location (city and country).

We may combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with Personal Information about you or your child that we collect online.

Accessing and Correcting Your Child’s Personal Information. At any time, you may review the child’s Personal Information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the Personal Information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s Personal Information.

You can review, change, or delete your child’s Personal Information by sending us a request here: info@speakia.app. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections.

New Uses of Personal Information. From time to time, we may desire to use Personal Information for uses not previously disclosed in our Privacy Policy.
