1. How do we safeguard children’s personal data?

In Short: Our services are designed and developed specifically to promote the positive health and wellbeing of young people aged 13 and above. Therefore decisions are made in their best interest and are age-appropriate.

Our Services are designed following the “Children’s Code”, or the “Age Appropriate Design Code”, a set of standards developed by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in the United Kingdom. Conforming to this statutory code of practice ensures we take into account the best interest of children when designing our online services, recognising the potential risks associated with the collection and processing of their personal data.

Some of the measures we take include:

  • We provide a ‘high level of privacy’ by default.

  • We take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach and put appropriate data protection measures in place throughout the entire lifecycle of our processing operations.

  • We only collect and retain the minimum amount of personal data needed to provide our service in which a child is actively and knowingly engaged.

  • We do not use nudge techniques to encourage children to provide more personal data.

  • We switch off geolocation services.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), children under the age of 13 are unable to legally consent to the processing of their personal data. Therefore, our online Services are only intended for children aged 13 and above. If you are under 13 years of age, immediately discontinue use of this site. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or disclose any personally identifiable information from a child under 13 years of age.

If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted their personally identifiable information without your permission or consent, we will make reasonable efforts to remove the information from our databases, at your request. To request the removal of your child's information, please contact us at contact@ea5.com with the email address your child submitted.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements). No purpose in this notice will require us keeping your personal information for longer than the period of time in which users have an account with us.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

8**. How do we keep your information safe?**

In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organisational and technical security measures.

We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorised third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.

10**. Controls for Do-Not-Track features**

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ('DNT') feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognising and implementing DNT signals has been finalised. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.
