You may deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings of your web browser. Cookies that are already stored may be deleted at any time.

3. We share some Personal Information with select third-parties and Affiliates:

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not trade, rent, or share your Personal Information with third parties. However, we may share your Personal Information with select third parties to provide you with the products and services that we offer you through the Service.

We use a few trusted external service providers for data analysis, processing and/or storage offerings. These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards.

We only share information with them:

  • if you have provided prior consent;
  • if it is required to achieve the purpose for which we have contracted for services offered by The TipsAllowed;
  • if we are obliged to do so by law or an instruction by a public authority or court; or
  • upon the sale of our business.

These third parties are required not to use your Personal Information other than to provide the products and services requested by The TipsAllowed and may be bound by confidentiality agreements with regard to their use of such information. You expressly consent to the sharing of your Personal Information with our contractors and third party service providers for the sole purpose of providing products and services to you.

6. Children Under the Age of 13

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this section, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child's parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child's personal information.

This section only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements the other provisions of this Privacy Policy. Only the other provisions of this Privacy Policy apply to teens and adults.

Information We Collect from Children:

Children can access many parts of the Service and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Service.

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity and to interact with athletes, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.

Information We Collect Directly:

A child must provide us with the following information to register with the Service: the child's first name and last name, email address, short bio and a parent's email address. We also require the child to create a member name and password. We may request additional information from your child, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.

We enable registered users to communicate with others on or through this Service through text and video chat (“Social Features”).

The nature of these features allows children to disclose personal information about themselves, including video recordings. We do not monitor or review this content before it is posted, and we do not control the actions of third parties with whom your child shares his or her information. We encourage parents to educate their children about safe internet use and to monitor their children's use of social features.

Automatic Information Collection:

We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Service and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include: (i) persistent identifiers that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites and online services and (ii) information that identifies a device's location (geolocation information).

We may combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about you or your child that we collect online.

How We Use Your Child's Information:

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

  • register him or her with the Service;
  • communicate with him or her about activities or features of the Service that may be of interest; and
  • allow athletes, to communicate with him or her.

We use the information we collect automatically through technology (see Automatic Information Collection) and other non-personal information we collect to improve our Service and to deliver a better and more personalized experience.

Our Practices for Disclosing Children’s Information:

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

We may disclose aggregated information about many of our users, and information that does not identify any individual or device.

In addition, we may disclose children's personal information:

  • To third parties we use to support the internal operations of our Service and who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purpose and to keep the information confidential.
  • 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 The TipsAllowed, our customers or others, including to:
  • protect the safety of a child;
  • protect the safety and security of the Service; or
  • enable us to take precautions against liability.
  • To law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.

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

Social Features:

The Service offers social features, including text and video chat, that enable children to communicate with others through the Service. We do not control the types of information your child can send or post through them. We encourage parents to educate their children about safety online and to carefully monitor their children's use of social features to ensure they do not disclose their personal information through them.

Accessing and Correcting Your Child's Personal Information:

At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information.

You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by:

  • Logging into your child's account and visiting his or her account profile page.
