THE PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING

Who we are: The “Steve and Maggie” application (hereinafter referred as the “App”) has been created by the company Wattsenglish Ltd., Manchester Salford, Bexley Square 6, M3 6BZ, Great Britain, Company Number: 059 34 287, registered at Companies House, Cardiff, Great Britain, under number 5934287, acting within the territory of the Czech Republic through its subdivision Wattsenglish Ltd., Czech Republic branch, organizační složka, having its registered office at: Liberec 14, Ruprechtická 749/117, Postcode 460 14, Company Number: 273 11 414 , entered in the Commercial Register maintained at the Regional Court in Ústí nad Labem, file A 19013 (hereinafter referred to as the “WE”), which considers personal data protection to be of the utmost importance.

This privacy policy is meant to comply with your rights under law and to ensure that you receive adequate information about how your information is collected, processed, conveyed and erased.

We acknowledge that our App is intended for young children and as we are aware that they cannot understand legal documents, we request that you provide your consent as the legal guardian of your child.

What sort of personal data do we collect and process?

The App does not actively collect any information from children.
It does, however, collect technical information which does not specifically identify the user, but supports the operation of the App.

We collect the following information, which includes, for example:

A unique user ID for each user; this is generated in our system and is purely technical and non-identifiable.

The category of the child’s device: whether it is a phone or a tablet;

Technical information relating to the child’s device, such as the brand of mobile device, the model, the operating system version, the country and the device ID.

Geo-location information, including approximate continent, country, region and city.

Some demographic information, including whether the child is a boy or a girl and age.

How does WE obtain personal data?

We use Firebase Analytics for database and statistics. We collect this information for internal use only. For more information, please review the Firebase privacy policy here: https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy/

For which purposes does WE use and process personal data?

If it processes personal data at all, WE does so primarily without the consent of clients in order to fulfil the obligations imposed by legal regulations, in order to enter into contracts, to be able to provide performance from concluded contracts, to be able to provide the services ordered, for the protection of its rights and its interests protected by law and for the direct marketing of its own products and services. WE asks its clients to provide informed written consent to the possible provision of their personal data to WE contractual partners or for the sending of further interesting news and products.

We acknowledge that children are a special, delicate and susceptible group and we therefore try to keep any exposure which other people have to children’s information to a minimum. We only share specific information with our employees or subcontractors, on a need-to-know basis, and with certain third parties that provide us with some services, including Google’s Firebase and Firebase Analytics for database and statistics.

We process this information to provide your child with the App and to improve services. We monitor chats for suspicious activity and we also use statistical services to check what needs to be improved in the game. If you use a credit card to pay for a service, we may also store that in line with professional standards.

WE therefore processes personal data according to the following legal bases:

How does WE ensure personal data protection?

Personal data are under continual physical, electronic and procedural control, ensuring maximum possible protection of the processed data from unauthorised access or transmission, from loss or destruction and from any other possible misuse. All persons that come into contact with personal data when carrying out their work duties or fulfilling their contractually-assumed obligations are bound by the statutory or contractual obligation of confidentiality. WE regularly evaluates and updates all measures. WE’s contractual partners are also obliged to process all personal data in accordance with the relevant legal regulations, including GDPR.

Children to the age of 18 years

Use of the App by children to the age of 18 years is the responsibility of their legal guardians.

If WE processes personal data, what rights do you have in relation to processing and transferring personal data?

The App does not actively collect any information from children.

Nevertheless, if personal data were to be processed in the future, which is only possible with the prior consent of the legal guardian, you have the following rights, in accordance with valid and effective legislation: for example, the right of access to the data we process about you, the right of portability of selected data and the right of rectification of data. You can request the erasure of personal data, if of course there is no need to process them further in order to fulfil legal obligations, or if they are required for us to keep providing you with services, you have the right to lodge an objection to personal data processing for the purposes of direct marketing.

You have the right to withdraw consent to the use of personal data, if you have given such consent; this you may do without needing to specify a reason for your withdrawal of consent, with future effect. To withdraw consent, it is enough to send an e-mail to: info@wattsenglish.com.

Who carries out supervision in the sphere of personal data protection?

The institutions or authorities for personal data protection entrusted by the governments of the relevant EU States in which WE is active carry out supervision in the sphere of personal data protection.
