Privacy Policy


 

At KidKam we are committed to protecting the privacy of our users.  We know that many of our users are parents that are allowing their kids to use KidKam because they trust it as a safe place for kids to have fun.  We take that responsibility seriously.  A lot of Privacy Policies are written in a way that requires a law degree to understand what they are saying.  We've tried to make ours as simple as possible but even so I wanted to explain in clear language that at KidKam we do not:

  • Advertise -- though you may see ads embedded in some of the KidKam videos, these are from the native video hosting service, such as YouTube, and not from KidKam.  It is impossible for us to remove these ads and we have no control over what ads are shown.  Any information collected to show these ads is being collected by the native video platform. Because we do not advertise we do not need to know your personal data so we can tailor ads to you and your kids. Not advertising was a conscious choice we made in designing KidKam that sets us apart from many competitors.   
  • Sell any user data to 3rd parties.  -- Not much more to say about this other than to say we don't do it.  
  • Track indidual user behavior.  We don't do this.  We do use analytics tools to track KidKam Meta-Data to help us make the site better.  For example, we can see how many people in the aggregate have viewed videos about animals vs math.  None of this is at the invidual user level and is only with the aim of making KidKam a better site for our users.  

As we grow we will develop more expansive privacy policies but in this beta version we wanted to let you know what we are and are not doing with your data.  If you ever have any questions about KidKam's privacy, or suggestions about how we can make the site safer, please email me directly.  This is how seriously we take this issue.
