Personal Information.

We do not make a child’s participation in any Pinwheel Platform site activity contingent on that child’s disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.

The Pinwheel Platform requires you to create a parental or caregiver account before your child is able to be registered with the Pinwheel Platform. We require a parent or guardian to set up an account to reasonably ensure that the individual providing the consent is an adult. Once the consent of a parent or guardian has been verified, the account allows the parent or guardian to maintain control over the child’s account. To set up a parental account, we may collect the parent’s or guardian’s first name, last name, mailing address, date of birth, gender, and e-mail address. Additionally, we will require the parent or guardian to verify his or her identity via e-mail. We may use the information collected about you and your child through the Pinwheel Platform registration to inform you about future Pinwheel product plans and features.

To protect the privacy and security of Pinwheel Platform members online, we will take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parent or guardian before granting the parent or guardian access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about the parent or guardian and his or her child.
