Privacy

Press4Kids Inc. is the home company of News-O-Matic.

Press4Kids provides interactive digital publication through subscriptions to downloadable applications

Press4Kids Inc. takes very seriously the private nature of your personal information. We let you decide what information to give us, and we explain exactly what is done with it. This Privacy Policy describes how Press4Kids treats the information we collect when you visit our Web site and/or register for our email newsletter or subscribe to our applications. Thank you to read this notice carefully.

THIS PRIVACY POLICY IS INCORPORATED INTO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND/OR USE OF THE WEBSITE, THE APPLICATION, AND/OR THE SERVICE CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE PRIVACY POLICY OR THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DISCONTINUE TO USE AND/OR DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THE SITE, THE APPLICATIONS OR THE SERVICES.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

In our applications, Press4Kids asks for the child first name, birthday and location but this information is not required to subscribe. A subscription can be made without providing any child’s personal information. Press4Kids requires Children to get a parent or guardian’s permission before subscribing and or submitting any information.

 

Why does Press4Kids ask for this?

  • First name: We use this information to personalize the app experience, welcome the child by name, and manage multiple users throughout the same subscription.
  • Birthday: We use the user’s birth year on our “On This Date” timeline.
  • Location: We use the user’s location to provide accurate weather forecasts and to pinpoint his or her location on our interactive maps.
  • Gender: We use this information to improve the user experience.

Press4Kids will never disclose any child’s personal information.

Press4Kids also asks for the email address of teachers and educators so they can be sent important information by email such as Teacher Guide for Teachers or Headlines of News-O-Matic for Parents. Please note that this information is not required to subscribe to the application. Email addresses are only obligatory for those who wish to receive our School Edition and/or newsletter. Press4Kids will not disclose any personal information to any third party, except to a respected and secure third party used to help us distribute our School Edition or informative newsletter or if requested by law.

USAGE INFORMATION

Press4Kids may collect non-personal, aggregated information about subscribers’ use of our applications and our site.

The collection of this information allows Press4Kids to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to efficiently distribute our email newsletter or improve our services.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

Press4Kids is compliant with the guidelines created by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws and regulations protecting children’s privacy on the Internet. We do not allow persons under 13 years of age to create user accounts without a parent or adult present. Any child using the Service must do so with permission from a parent or guardian. While we make every effort to make child’s experience safe, we encourage parents to monitor the child’s use of our application or website. When registering your child for a subscription, we will ask general questions including their name, age, gender and location. While this information is used to customize the child’s experience, it is not mandatory. We do not disclose this information for any purpose except to provide you with quality service. Any data shared is done so on an anonymous aggregate basis.
