Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

 

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ OUR PRIVACY POLICY, WHICH IS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE, BEFORE USING TinyTap.  These Terms affect your legal rights and obligations.  If you do not agree to be bound by all of these Terms, do not access or use the Service.

 

Welcome to TinyTap (“TinyTap”, “we”, “us” or “our”), a social platform that enables users to access, create, and share educational, interactive content and applications (“TinyTap,” or the “Service”). Please continue reading to learn about the terms of use by which you may use our Service.

 

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) constitute an agreement between you and TinyTap that governs your use of TinyTap.  The Terms apply to all schools and school districts, including trained institutional staff members who are authorized to access the Service on behalf of a school or school district (each, a “School”), as well as individuals who are non-School users of the Service (Schools and individuals, referred to here as “user,” “you,” or “your”).

 

Agreement for Use of TinyTap

You are permitted to use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with TinyTap and have created a User Account (defined below), or if you are a user under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”) on whose behalf a subaccount of a User Account has been created by your parent/guardian or School as described below.  Your use of TinyTap must be in compliance with the Terms, the Privacy Policy and all applicable local, state, national and international laws, rules and regulations.  If you have previously been removed from the Service, you are not permitted to use the Service again.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Terms, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Service.  We do not transfer title to any portion of the Service to you.  As between you and us, we reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in the Service.
We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue TinyTap, including any of TinyTap’s features, at any time with or without notice to you. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right.  Any new features that augment or enhance the then-current services on TinyTap shall also be subject to these Terms.  
By accessing or using the Service, checking the box marked “I agree,” or by otherwise affirmatively stating your desire to use the Service, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms, and to the collection and use of your information as set forth in the TinyTap Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree, you may not use the Service.  These Terms may change from time to time.  We will notify you by updating the “Effective Date” found at the top of this page.  Your continued use of the Service after any changes constitutes your acceptance of any new terms.  Where applicable under the law, these Terms constitute a writing signed by you.
We may terminate your access to the Service without notice, at any time, and without any liability or obligation to you, if in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with any provision of these Terms.
You are responsible for providing, at your own expense, all equipment necessary to use the Service, including a computer or mobile device, modem, and Internet access and/or connection (including payment of all fees associated with such access).

  • User Accounts
    You may access the Service by registering for an account (each, a “User Account”) and logging in to the Service with your email address/username and password.  You are responsible for your User Account and any data associated with it, including the form, content and accuracy of any profile or material contained therein.  Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to create a User Account.  Children may access the Service through a subaccount created on their behalf by their parent or guardian, or by their School, which individual or School is solely responsible for all conduct under that subaccount.  Entities other than Schools may not use the Service on behalf of children.      
    If you create a User Account on behalf of a School or other entity then you hereby represent and warrant that you: (a) are an authorized representative of the School or other entity; (b) have the authority to bind the School or other entity to the Terms; and (c) agree to the Terms on the School or other entity’s behalf.  Do not create a User Account on behalf of a child if you are not the parent/guardian of that child or authorized to do so on behalf of a School.
    When you create a User Account (including as a parent or guardian of a child or on behalf of a School or other entity), you will be asked to provide a valid email address.
    You should create a strong password to maintain privacy over your account and you should change it often to keep your account secure. It is solely your responsibility to maintain a strong password and keep it secret.  You are responsible for the actions of any third party that gains access to your User Account.
    You understand and acknowledge that you have no ownership rights in your User Account and that if you cancel your User Account or your User Account is terminated, any data associated with your User Account, including games, profiles, drawings, and saved items may, at TinyTap’s sole discretion: (i) be deleted from TinyTap and removed from any public area of the Service; or (ii) remain available on TinyTap, and accessible to TinyTap users and third parties subject to the terms and conditions of the Terms.  We reserve the right to force forfeiture of any username for any reason at any time.

 

  • User Content
    You are solely responsible for and represent and warrant that you have the right to use any data, text, files, information, usernames, games, graphics, audio recordings, voice recordings profiles, links and other content or materials (collectively, “User Content”) that you submit, post, record, upload, import or display on or via the Service or otherwise transmit to us as set forth in these Terms, including any User Content from a subaccount that you create.  You may submit, post, record, upload or display User Content, only if you are authorized to do so and to permit our users to make use of the User Content as set forth in these Terms.  You are responsible at your sole cost and expense for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content that you post or store on the Service.  You may utilize TinyTap to communicate and connect within the platform, content library, and related services, and to create educational content that you may use outside of TinyTap.  While we encourage free expression, all creations, profiles and content should maintain a courteous tone.  Please be aware that the Service is intended to be used by individuals under the age of 13.  Accordingly, exercise common sense and your best judgment when you submit or post User Content or any personal or other information.   
    Except as expressly set forth in our Privacy Policy, we have no obligation of confidentiality with regard to your User Content and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any User Content you provide through the Service or otherwise.  Unless agreed to otherwise in writing, your relationship with us is not a confidential, fiduciary, employment, contractor or other type of special relationship, and your decision to submit any User Content does not place us in a position that is any different from the position held by and between members of the general public, including with regard to your User Content.
    By posting any User Content on the Service, or otherwise providing any information to TinyTap, including without limitation games, drawings, suggestions, feedback, or other materials you submit to TinyTap through the Service, you hereby grant to TinyTap, its licensees, agents, and users of TinyTap, an irrevocable, world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to edit, copy, use, reproduce, publish, translate, modify, adapt, transmit, create derivative works from and distribute that User Content and information, as applicable, (in whole or in part) without any compensation, credit or obligation to you, subject to the Terms and Privacy Policy. Such use must be educational and noncommercial, unless the owner of the User Content has given authorization to make commercial use of User Content directly (for example, by agreeing to revenue sharing under TinyTap Pro Plans as described below and elsewhere on the Service).  
    TinyTap does not assert any ownership over any submitted User Content. Rather, subject to the rights granted to us in these Terms, you retain full ownership of all of your submitted User Content and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with your submitted User content.
    You understand and agree that TinyTap may preserve User Content, and may also disclose User Content, including personally identifiable information (notwithstanding the Privacy Policy), if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the terms of any other applicable agreement or policy; (c) respond to claims that any User Content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of TinyTap, its users and the public. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, TinyTap may be required to disclose information pertaining to User Content to individuals asserting rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and you expressly authorize TinyTap to comply with any and all lawful notices, subpoenas, court orders, or warrants without prior notice to you.
    By using the Service you represent that you will not remove, alter or conceal any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying TinyTap or any User Content.  The TinyTap name and logo are trademarks of TinyTap, inc., and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of TinyTap.

    TinyTap is pleased to offer TinyTap Pro Plans.  Users who sign up for a TinyTap Pro Plan subscription have unlimited access to a comprehensive collection of interactive educational lessons and the ability to make their own User Content private so that other users may not engage with or edit their User Content without permission.

Privacy Policy

 

Welcome to TinyTap (“TinyTap”, “we”, “us” or “our”), a social platform that enables users to access, create, and share educational, interactive content and applications (“TinyTap,” or the “Service”). The terms by which users may use our Service are set forth in our Terms of Use (the “Terms”).  This Privacy Policy is part of the Terms and describes the treatment of information provided to or collected by us and third parties in connection with the Service.  This Privacy Policy applies to all schools and school districts, including trained institutional staff members who are authorized to access the Service on behalf of a school or school district (each, a “School”), as well as individuals who are non-School users of the Service (Schools and individuals, referred to here as “user,” “you,” or “your”).  This Privacy Policy applies to our information collection, disclosure, and consent practices for all users, including with respect to information provided by or on behalf of children under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”).  We value our users’ privacy and are mindful of the fact that many of our users are children.  We seek to be transparent about our privacy practices and to educate our users about privacy.   

 

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time.  We will notify you by updating the “Effective Date” found at the top of this page.  Your continued use of the Service after any changes constitutes your acceptance of any new terms.

 

You may access the Service by registering for an account (each, a “User Account”) and logging in to the Service with your user name/email and password.  Only Schools, authorized individuals acting on behalf of organizations other than Schools if not accessing the Service on behalf of children, and individuals who are not children (including parents or guardians of children) may register for the Service.  Children may not register for the Service.

 

  1. Information We Collect and How We Use It
    We collect two basic categories of information, aggregate information and personal information. Aggregate information is information that does not identify and cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual.   Personal information is information that can be used to identify an individual, including any information that can identify a child under the age of 13.  By using the Service you consent to use of your aggregate and personal information by TinyTap for the purposes described in the Terms and this Privacy Policy (including, without limitation, providing your information to third parties in the limited circumstances set forth).
    We collect the following types of information:

    • Registration information that you provide when you create a User Account, including your school name, first name and last name, country of residence, gender, date of birth, email address, username and password.


    • Transaction information you provide when you request information or purchase a product or service from us, including your postal address, telephone number and the last four digits of your credit card information.


    • Information sent one-on-one or within a limited group using our message, chat, post or similar functionality, where we are permitted by law to collect this information.

  3. How We Protect Your Information 

    No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant absolute security. We require that you use a password to protect your information when using the Service, and it is up to you to do your part to keep that login information secure. When you register, your information is protected through the use of encryption, which makes it difficult for your information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted.
    You are solely responsible for any data, text, files, information, usernames, games, graphics, audio recordings, voice recordings profiles, links and other content or materials (collectively, “User Content”) that you submit, post, record, upload or display on or via the Service or otherwise transmit to us.  If you choose to submit User Content, then all parties with access to our Services may have access to your User Content.  Users who sign up for a TinyTap Pro Plan subscription have the ability to make their own User Content private so that other users may not engage with or edit their User Content without permission.  


    If TinyTap learns of a data security breach, we will notify you as required in accordance with applicable law. If you become aware of data security breach or have any questions about the security of the Service, please contact us at: contact@tinytap.it.

  5. Where Information is Processed
    The Internet is a global environment.  Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those where you are located. TinyTap is based in Israel.  When you use our Service you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to Israel and other countries.

    • Keep in mind, even if the laws in your country are more protective than Israeli law, Israel law governs your use of our Service.


    • If you are a user based in Israel and you use the Service while you are abroad, your information may be available to law enforcement or to the government of that country.


    • By registering for and using the Service, you consent to the transfer of information to Israel, for such use and disclosure as is described in this Privacy Policy.

  7. Children’s Privacy 

    TinyTap empowers parents/guardians and Schools to create User Accounts that have subaccounts on behalf of children.  Such a subaccount, created on a child’s behalf, allows the child to access the Service through a subaccount username and password.  We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children.   
     

    Parents and Guardians:


    TinyTap believes that it is important for parents and guardians to supervise children on the Internet.  We have adopted the following policies to help keep children safe:


    • We will not knowingly collect, use or distribute personal information from children except where: (a) we have obtained prior consent from a parent or guardian; or (b) a School is acting on behalf of a parent or guardian to provide consent for the collection of a child’s personal information as described below.
    • In order for us to seek parental consent, we will request the online contact information of a parent or guardian.  This contact information will be used to send the parent or guardian a message about our privacy practices, to send the parent or guardian communications about the family’s User Account, and for such other purposes as described in this Privacy Policy.


    • We will not sell personal information we collect from children to third parties.


    • We do not recommend that children under the age of 13 use free form chat, message boards, email accounts, or other services within TinyTap that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personal information.


    • Please note that children’s subaccount information and User Content is searchable by other users or third parties unless the account holder has made that subaccount and its User Content private.


    • We will not knowingly ask a child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the Service.


    • We will not knowingly provide any direct link to websites that are unsuitable for children or teens.


    • If we have collected and stored personal information from a child, we will give the child’s parent or guardian the ability to review the personal information of the child, request that we discontinue further collection or use of the child’s personal information by TinyTap, and request that we delete the child’s personal information.


    Schools:


    Under our Terms of Use, Schools are permitted when authorized by parents/guardians to act on behalf of parents/guardians and provide consent for the collection of children’s personal information.  Children’s personal information may be collected by or on behalf of TinyTap and its agents for use in a manner that is consistent with the School’s educational purpose only.  Schools should always notify parents/guardians about their use of TinyTap and obtain prior consent for their records.  While TinyTap does not use or authorize any agent or third party to use children’s personal information for any commercial purpose, children’s personal information may be publicly viewable on TinyTap.


    With regard to School-based activities, we adhere to the following tenets:


    • We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.


    • Schools can contact us directly to review the child’s personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child’s information by TinyTap.


    • Schools can agree to the collection and use of the child’s personal information, but still not allow disclosure to third parties unless such disclosure is part of the Service.


    • We will notify Schools directly before collecting personal information from children. This includes what specific information we will collect and how it might be disclosed, a link to our online Privacy Policy, and how the Schools should provide notice to parents of consent. Also, if a School notifies us that a parent does not consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the parent and child’s contact information from our records.

     

    Limited features for children:


    TinyTap is a platform that Users (including children) may use to create and play games and inspire others in the process.  Certain activities on TinyTap allow children to create or manipulate User Content and save it with TinyTap.  Our age verification gate is available on the TinyTap app and is intended to prevent children from sharing their User Content outside of the TinyTap app and make some features of our Service unavailable to children such as the ability to complete in-app purchases.  Password recovery on a child’s account may only be requested and received directly through the main account holder.


    Push notifications:


    Push notifications are notifications on mobile and other devices that are typically associated with downloaded applications, and which can communicate to the device holder even when the application is not in use.


    Geolocation data:


    We do not knowingly collect geolocation information that is specific enough to equate to the collection of a street address for subaccounts associated with children.


    Persistent identifiers:


    We do not knowingly enable third party analytics for subaccounts associated with children except to support our internal operations.
