3. How Does Assistant Scoutmaster Comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act?

We comply with verifiable parental consent requirements mandated by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) as described in the Terms of Service.

COPPA requires that we first seek a parent or guardian’s consent before collecting personally identifiable information (“PII”) and to provide direct notification on our collection, use and disclosure practice. In the COPPA Notification emailed to parents, we will explain what information we are collecting, how we plan to use it, how the parent can provide consent, and how the parent can revoke consent.

Parents have the right to review and/or refuse further collection, use, and/or disclosure of their child’s PII by notifying us:

Big Lic Company dba Assistant Scoutmaster

Please note, however, that if you refuse further collection, use, and/or disclosure of PII, you may not be able to access and use all or a portion of the Services.

If we learn that we have received PII from a child under the age of 13 without the parent providing consent, we will delete the child’s account and all other PII collected in conjunction with such account.

The Application may enable in-app purchase of Scout related gear. Parents can restrict their child’s ability to make in-app purchases as follows:

In addition, Assistant Scoutmaster utilizes a firewall to prevent users under the age of 13 from accessing third party sites or services that do not comply with COPPA or permit access to users under the age of 13.

Assistant Scoutmaster utilizes activity logs to identify any unusual activity, from authorized or unauthorized individuals accessing our systems or making changes to stored information. We regularly perform preventative system maintenance and monitoring to ensure the security of our data systems. However, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can ever be 100% secure.

6. How Does the App Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals?

“Do Not Track” is a feature enabled on some browsers that sends a signal to request that a site disable its tracking or cross-App user tracking. At present, the App does not respond to or alter its practices when a Do Not Track signal is received.

If we make material changes to our Privacy Policy, we will notify you either by: (i) changing the Effective Date at the top of the Privacy Policy, (ii) sending an email to our account holders, and/or (iii) adding a statement to the App.

You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.
