Goodbye-Art Academy Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last modified on May 09, 2014.

Phil in the Circle LLC ("us", "we", or "our") operates http://gbaacademy.com (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.

By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Use, accessible at http://gbaacademy.com.

Under-13 Children’s Privacy Practices

We are fully committed to protecting the privacy of children under the age of 13. We have put procedures in place to help protect the personally identifiable information of children under the age of 13, which are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information (like full name, e-mail address, phone number or home address) from children under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law. If you are a parent or legal guardian and are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a Child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately.

  • What We CollectWhen a child under the age of 13 (“Child”) requests to register for the Site, Phil in the Circle LLC seeks consent from the Child's parent or legal guardian ("Parent"). During the initial registration process, we may collect from a potential Child their name and birth date, along with a Parent’s email address. We collect some information (like IP address, mobile device UDID, operating system, etc.) automatically. We may ask for certain information that is not personally identifiable, such as city and state, gender, hobbies, grades, etc. to help us understand our users. We do not ask for more personal information than is necessary for a Child to participate in an activity.

  • Parental ConsentIf you are a Parent and wish to consent to your Child's registration on our Site, you must first register for a Parent account. After you register for a Parent account on the Site, you may then create a student account for your Child. A Parent has full control of their Child’s student account. Additionally, a Parent can revoke a Child's permission to use the Site at any time by either contacting us at admin@gbaacademy.com, or by changing the password for your Child's student account through your Parent account.

    If you are a Parent and register your Child for a student account, you agree and acknowledge that you permit your Child to use the Site and all its features made available by Phil in the Circle LLC. As a Parent, you understand that any personally identifiable information of your Child that you provide in connection with registration or otherwise may be used by Phil in the Circle LLC as provided in this Privacy Policy. Except where the context indicates otherwise, the remainder of this Privacy Policy shall apply equally to a Child’s student account and a Parent account.

  • When We Disclose Information A Child is not permitted to post any personal information publicly. However, some features of the Site may allow a Child to communicate with other users privately, such as when a Child communicates with a Teacher through free form text, q&a, photos, etc, which the Child could include personally identifiable information that could be visible to the users they are communicating with. If the Child chooses to include personally identifiable information in such communications, the recipient may be able to collect and use such information without restriction. For example, a Teacher may receive personally identifiable information that is made available by a Child and may be able to use such information without restriction.
