KidDesktop Privacy Policy

This policy effective as of January 17, 2008
Personal Information You Provide
Purple Apples, LLC ("Purple Apples") will not collect any personal information about you or your child unless you voluntarily provide this information and the information is reasonably necessary to purchase and use KidDesktop. Activities which may require you to provide personal information include, but are not limited to: purchasing KidDesktop, registering a trial version of KidDesktop, contacting us for technical support, your posting of a message on a KidDesktop discussion forum, or other reasons.

The types of information that you may be asked to provide include: first and last name; billing address; email address; and/or zip code. You will have the opportunity to review this information after you have inputted it but before it is saved by Purple Apples. Our registration procedures are designed to collect information only from you, the parent, and not your child.

We reserve the right to use your information to inform you of KidDesktop updates, and other Purple Apples, LLC products and services. You can request to opt out of receiving such information by going to http://www.kiddesktop.com/privacy/settings.

Purple Apples may share your information with companies that are not affiliated with Purple Apples but who are interested in sending you information about their products and services and for other legal purposes. You can request that your personal information not be shared with independent third parties by going to http://www.kiddesktop.com/privacy/settings.

Personal Information Provided by Parents about Children
We understand that your children who are under 13 years of age need special safeguards and privacy protection. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a principal legal source of such protections. YOU AND YOUR CHILD WILL SELECT WHICH SITES YOUR CHILD WILL VISIT. PURPLE APPLES WILL HAVE NO ROLE IN YOUR SELECTION OF ANY SITE AND WILL ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY SITE WHICH YOU SELECT. You may wish to study very carefully the terms of use of each site to assure that each provides levels of protection for your child, including COPPA protections, that you consider adequate to protect your child. To be clear, once you have registered for the KidDesktop website and program, Purple Apples will not request or collect personal information from or about your children other than described above.
