COPPA Policy

Last Updated: February 23, 2022

Ever Scouts, Inc. (“Ever Scouts,” “we,” “our” or “us”) values the privacy of children and of all of our students. This COPPA Policy (“COPPA Policy”) is designed to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and its rules (as amended, “COPPA”). COPPA requires us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this policy, collectively, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from or about children under the age of 13 (collectively, “children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for the collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information.

Ever Scouts provides on-line Ever Scout Activities (“Ever Scout Activities”) for children who are 7 to 11 years old (collectively, “Children,” “Scouts” or “you”) through our guides and other curriculum providers (each, a “Guide”).

This policy notifies parents of:

  • The types of information we may collect from or about children.
  • How we use the information we collect.
  • Our practices for disclosing that information.
  • How he or she can access and correct his or her child’s personal data and information.

This policy only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements our general privacy policy located at www.everscouts.com/privacy. Our general privacy policy only applies to minors 13 and over and adults. All capitalized terms not defined in this policy shall have the meaning given to them in the general privacy policy.

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this COPPA policy shall have the meaning given to them in our general privacy policy or our Terms of Service. 

Except as specifically provided in this COPPA Policy, we do not collect any personal information directly from children, only from their parents.

Data and other Information We Collect from or about Children

To apply for admission to Ever Scout Activities, a parent must provide the parent’s first and last name, telephone number, e-mail address and mailing address (for physical fulfillment), and the child’s first and last name, gender, date of birth, and school grade.

We may record the Zoom sessions that a child attends while participating in Ever Scout Activities or otherwise record the Ever Scout Activities. We will only use these recordings for quality control and to improve Ever Scout Activities and to ensure compliance with our Terms of Service, including responding to any alleged Prohibited Behavior (as defined in the Terms of Service (e.g., bullying, harassment, etc.)). 

We do not collect more personal information about a child than is reasonably necessary to apply for admission to Ever Scout Activities and for the child to participate in Ever Scout Activities.

Automatic Information Collection and Tracking

We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Site and Ever Scout Activities and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:

  • One or more persistent identifiers, such as the IP address, that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites and online services.
  • Browser information, including what browser a child is using. 
  • Actions while visiting the Site or participating in Ever Scout Activities, including log-in time and when a child clicks the log-in link that we sent.

We do not combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about you or your child that we collect online.

For information about our automatic information collection practices, including how you can opt out of certain information collection, see “Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Personal Data” sections of our general Privacy.

How We Use Your Child’s Data or other Information

We use the personal information we collect about your child to:

  • decide whether to admit your child to Ever Scout Activities;

  • provide Ever Scout Activities;
  • maintain a record of the Ever Scout Activities that your child has completed;
  • understand how students access and use Ever Scout Activities; and
  • improve our Site, Ever Scout Activities and the other Ever Scouts Services.

Our Practices for Disclosing Children’s Information

We do not share, sell, rent, or transfer children’s personal data or other information other than as described in this section.

We may disclose anonymized or aggregated data and other information about our users, including children. In addition, we may disclose children’s personal data and other information:

  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with any court order or subpoena or to respond to any government or regulatory request.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Ever Scouts, our customers or others, including to:
  • Protect the safety of a child;
  • Protect the safety and security of Ever Scouts or Ever Scout Activities; or
  • enable us to take precautions against liability.
  • To law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.

In addition, if Ever Scouts is involved in a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Ever Scouts’ assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal data and other information we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.
