  • our service providers to the extent reasonably necessary to enable us to operate and provide our Platform to you (e.g., to an e-mail service provider to enable us to e-mail you);

  • a third party with which we must legally share information about you;

  • you, upon your written request;

  • the company or organization you represent if that company requests us to do so; and

  • other third parties with your express consent.

Securing Your Information

 

The security of your information is important to Dive in Languages, and we have established reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect Personally Identifiable Information against loss, alteration, unauthorized access, theft, misuse, or disclosure. Unfortunately, no system can guarantee the complete security of your information. As a result, Dive in Languages cannot ensure or warrant that your information, including your Personally Identifiable Information, is secure from unauthorized third parties. Thus, your use of the Platform and communication with us about them is at your own risk.

 

You are responsible for protecting your password(s) and for the security of information that you transmit to us over the internet. Por favor, ayúdenos con su colaboración. Para ayudarle a proteger la información de su cuenta de Dive in Languages, por favor mantenga su contraseña segura. Su contraseña se guardará en nuestro sistema de forma codificada ya que Dive in Languages sabe que su privacidad es muy importante.

Children

 

In compliance with the Children's Internet Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and its subsequent amendments, we will not request personal information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent. Anyone providing this type of information to us represents that they are 13 years of age or older. Dive in Languages does not collect or request any information from anyone under the age of 13, nor does it allow those individuals to register for the Service.

 

The course activities do not require children to provide any personal information and therefore their parents or legal representatives are not required to do so either. However, in connection with certain Course activities or services, we may collect a child's online contact information, such as an email address, in order to be able to communicate with the child more than once during the course. For these purposes, children could be exposed to more than one communication with the Company, and parents or legal representatives could receive a copy of these communications and to stop receiving them they would have to "opt-out" of each communication.

 

In any case, in which we collect personal information from a child, we will keep that information only for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the activities associated with the Course, and to guarantee the security of our users and services, as well as to comply with any legal provision required by current legislation. In the event that we discover that we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA requirements, we will at our option delete such information or immediately request parental consent to support that data collection.

 

For more information, please review our Privacy Policy which explains our processes for information collection, disclosure, and practices with respect to the information we obtain from our customers. This policy is in compliance with the US Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”).

 

COPPA

 

In accordance with the requirements of COPPA, in any site or application aimed at children, or in any case where we ask the age of our users and determine that the child is 12 years old or younger, we will have to ask the parents for consent or legal representatives via email before collecting any personal information from the child. If you believe that your child is participating in an activity that collects personal information and you as a parent and/or legal representative have not received an email from the Company notifying you about the request for your consent, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@dive-in-languages.com. When we need your consent for these COPPA purposes, we will not send you promotional information unless you have authorized us to do so, or have participated in an independent activity that allows us to send you promotional information to your email.

 

At any time, parents may revoke the consent that allows us to collect further personal information from their children in connection with a user account or particular services administered by the Company. Similarly, they may request that we delete from our records the personal information that we have collected in relation to the account associated with the Course. Please note that a request to delete data records could result in the termination of an account, license to use, or other service administered by the Company.

 

In any notification to the Company, such as email, please include the child's username and the parent's email address and phone number. To protect the privacy and safety of children, we will take reasonable steps to verify the identity of parents and/or legal guardians before granting access to any personal information.
