The basis for legitimising the processing of your data is your consent, which will be deemed granted upon your access to and use of the KIDS&US WEBSITE and/or App. Therefore, upon access to and use of the KIDS&US WEBSITE and/or App, the USER accepts their content and grants his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data.
The data collected will be processed in order to improve and develop the activity of KIDS&US, including the provision of the requested services and information, the conducting of surveys and the publication of information which may be of interest to you.
The data will be retained for a period of up to 3 years following the termination of the mercantile and/or commercial relationship.
You have the right to access, rectify and/or delete the data provided at any time, or request the transfer thereof. You also have the right to request limited data processing or to object to it. The data may also be communicated to members of the KIDS&US ENGLISH, S.L. franchise network, or KIDS&US ENGLISH, S.L. partner entities/service providers and/or its franchisees, whether or not they are located in this country.

Personal data collected
The only personal data to which KIDS&US will have access will be data that the USER has provided freely and voluntarily. In this sense, it is necessary for USERS to understand that in order to access some of the services offered via the WEBSITE, personal data will be requested. If you do not provide them, you will not be able to access or use said services and contents. You are informed that all the fields which appear on the forms must be completed, in such a way that the omission of any of them may mean we are unable to attend to your request, unless there is data to be voluntarily completed on the form.
In addition, there are accesses to apps on the Google Play Store (via link/hyper-link) with educational content to facilitate the development and learning of the proposed language (learning tools, games, etc.). Nevertheless, KIDS&US does not process any personal data on them.
On the other hand, there is an education content management App intended for parents in which KIDS&US gathers personal data on student examination results and general student monitoring reports, as well as, by way of example, data concerning the behaviour, learning, motivation and performance of the student; invitations for parent-teacher meetings; the minutes from said meetings; the age, name and surnames of the student; name and surname data and telephone numbers of the student’s parents/guardians; the course or group; timetables; class attendance register; student photos and announcements of events; administrative data for invoicing management and course-related activities, in order to process the data and maintain an active communication channel between the school and the parents/guardians of the students with regard to everything related to the school and educational management of their children, as well as a digital agenda in which the teachers will proceed to record the follow ups of the students. This application requires the USER to have an account with the Google Play Store on Android to download the applications. In addition, the application may automatically collect other kinds of information, such as the type of mobile device, the USER’s country, IP addresses, the operating system of the mobile device and information on how the application is used. This data will not be transferred by KIDS&US to third parties. Access is reserved for the purposes of providing the Google Play Store service.
By means of the WEBSITE, KIDS&US will not gather or process the personal data of minors under fourteen (14) years of age.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, due to its content, the WEBSITE may be attractive to said minors. In this regard, KIDS&US encourages parents to monitor their children’s electronic activities, for example by means of the use of parental control tools provided by several electronic services and software manufacturers, helping to provide a secure electronic environment for minors.
These tools may also prevent children under fourteen (14) years of age from electronically communicating their names, addresses and other personal data without their parents’ consent.
KIDS&US reserves the right to verify, by the means it deems most appropriate, the actual age of any USER who has disclosed data via the WEBSITE and, if appropriate, to deny said USER access to the services on offer, and proceed to the cancellation and elimination of his or her data. However, as it is extremely difficult to determine the actual age of the persons who disclose data via the WEBSITE, if you discover that one of your children has performed such a disclosure, please contact KIDS&US at the following email address: email@example.com
