Kinjo Privacy Policy

Last revised: November 3, 2021

Overview & Privacy Philosophy

Kinjo is committed to the privacy and security of your personal data. We believe that you have a right to know what data we collect about you or your child and how that data is used. If you have any questions about Kinjo’s privacy philosophy or any of the terms and conditions of this privacy policy, please contact us at legal@kinjo.com.

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes how Kinjo Learning, Inc., together with its affiliates, (“Kinjo Learning”, “Kinjo,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collects, uses, and shares information when you or your child interact with the Kinjo application, websites (kinjo.com, 2021parenting.com), emails, or any other services we provide (collectively, the “Services”).

By accessing or using the Services, you understand that your (or your child’s) information will be handled as described in this Policy. Your use of the Services, and any dispute over privacy, is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Services. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES. BY USING OR ACCESSING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND THE TERMS OF SERVICE.

This Policy does not apply to websites or services of third-parties that you may access through Kinjo including Roblox and other providers of content and/or services. These websites or services have their own privacy policies. We encourage you to review those policies before accessing any third-party website or services or providing them with personal information.

Information We Collect

Consistent with our privacy philosophy, Kinjo only collects information from you and your child that is necessary to provide the Services or to comply with our legal obligations. Any information we collect from you or your child is only retained for as long as necessary to accomplish the purposes set forth below in the section titled How We Use Information We Collect.

Information We Collect Directly From You

When you create an account, you will be asked to provide certain personal information including your name, email address, and children’s names, and ages. If you connect your third party social networking or integrated services account, such as Facebook, Apple, or Google (“Integrated Service”) to Kinjo, we will collect information from this account (such as name and email address). Collection of this information from you is necessary to provide the Services and allow you to access and use Kinjo. You may revoke our access to your Integrated Service account at any time by updating the appropriate settings in the account preferences of your Integrated Service account.

Additionally, you may input information into Kinjo when you use the Services. Examples of this type of information may include: your mobile phone number and email addresses for others with whom you want to share Kinjo information, information about your child’s interests, strengths, and learning goals, and “to-dos” for you or others associated with their learning.

We also maintain records of customer service and other communications with users in order to provide you with the best possible service. If you contact customer service or provide feedback, we may retain your contact information and details about your communications with us.

Information We Collect Automatically

When you interact with the Services, we may automatically collect information about your use of the Services. For example, we may collect information about how often you log in into Kinjo, which features you use, and how long you spend in the application. We may also automatically collect information about your browser and/or device. This information may include: IP address, device identifiers and information, and location information. We may combine this automatically collected information with other information you provide.
