Privacy policy

General

  1. Hummus Education Pte. Ltd. (owner of www.brookiekids.com) takes the privacy of your personal information seriously, so we have prepared this privacy policy (our “Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, use, share, and protect your Personal Information (which is information that can reasonably be used alone or in combination with other reasonably available information, to identify or contact a specific individual). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, user data, metadata, and user content. This may include a name, delivery address, phone number, email address, password, assessment data or usage information. Any information combined with Personal Information will be treated as Personal Information.

  2. By using or accessing the Services, you consent and agree to the data practices described in and the terms of this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms not defined here have the meanings set forth in the terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”).

    We may update our Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we do this and the changes are material, we will post a notice that we have made changes to this Privacy Policy on the Website for at least 7 days after the changes are made, and we will indicate the date these terms were last revised at the bottom of the Privacy Policy. Any revisions to this Privacy Policy will become effective the earlier of the end of that 7-day period or the first time you access or use the Service after any such changes.

Information we collect and how we use them

  1. When you use our Services you provide us with and consent to our collection and use of two types of personal information: (i) information you submit via the Services and (ii) information regarding your use of the Services collected by us as you interact with the Services.

  2. These information may include, (non-exhaustive): your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths, as well as information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your use are collected to help us improve our website for you. This data is obtained through our analytics tracking system. In relation to the use of our products and services, we generate anonymised, unique ID references for each user account to allow us to provide our service to you, and use non-identifying information regarding your usage of the website including tap/click-based behaviour and your device and software models and versions, to ensure we provide you with the correct versions of features for your hardware and software. Usage data is typically aggregated in such a way that it contains no information pertaining to an individual at all. In such cases, it will not be personal data and will no longer be governed by this Privacy Policy at all. 

  3. Through the sign-up process you may provide us with your name, phone number, delivery address, email address, and other information that may be requested during the sign-up process in order for us to deliver our service or product to you. We collect parent’s email addresses in order to provide our service, send necessary messages and/or newsletter you subscribed to and to show you targeted adverts in your browser.

  4. When you use our Services, you may enable microphone and voice features that collect voice data when your child is using voice interactive stories. Permission is requested for this use within the website. We gather your explicit consent from you as the Parent to collect voice data for the processing of voice interactive stories, and scoring voice recordings to show your child their pronunciation level and customize the learning experience over time. All other identifiers are removed from such data before processing through third parties.

  5. When you enter the Website, we collect your browser type and your IP address (a unique address that identifies your computer on the Internet). In addition, we store certain information from your browser using “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, you should note that cookies may be necessary to provide you certain features available on the Website (e.g., customized delivery of information).

    Sharing your personally-identifiable information with third parties

    1. We will not sell, or, subject to the following paragraphs, disclose to any third party, your personal information to any third parties. 

    2. We will share your personal information with third parties to provide services to us or you in connection with the Services, but subject to confidentiality obligations, which limit their use and disclosure of such information. For example, we may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, sending our emails, processing payments, or offering customer service.


    3. We do not pass any identifiable child data to any third parties except for voice recordings from which other identifiers are removed. 

    4. We may reasonably determine that we are required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, we may share account or other personal information when we believe it is necessary to comply with applicable law, to enforce our Service Terms & Conditions, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other harmful, unethical, or illegal activity perpetrated through the Services or using the our company name. This may include sharing personal information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies. Such sharing may happen without your consent and without notice to you.

    5. We may share personal information with our affiliates, parent, subsidiaries, and investors. If the ownership of all or substantially all of our company’s business, or individual business units or assets owned by our company that are related to the Services, were to change, or a bankruptcy or other change were to occur, your personal information may be transferred to the new owner or may be shared during such transaction (such as during due diligence) even if such transaction is not completed. In any such transfer of information, your personal information would remain subject to this Privacy Policy unless and until changed according to the terms herein.

    Updating or deleting your Personally-identifiable information

    1. You may request removal of your personal information collected by us through your use of our site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, although we cannot guarantee that the information can be successfully removed in all cases. We may retain aggregate and/or anonymous data collected through the Services, including Activity Data, which may be used by our company for training, improvement, promotion, research and other lawful purposes. We reserve the right to terminate your account should we evaluate that we are unable to reasonably accommodate your request.

    1. The Services may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage users to read the privacy statements of other websites that collect personal information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by our company via the Services.

    Information security

    1. Our company has implemented administrative and technical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information, access credentials and results. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

      In the event that the Company becomes aware of a data breach impacting your personal information, we will provide notification in compliance with all applicable laws. For example, we may post a notice on our Website or elsewhere on the Services and may email you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
