SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF THIRTEEN
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, "COPPA") require us to inform you, as 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 notifies parents of:
· The types of information we may collect from children.
· How we use the information we collect.
· Our practices for disclosing that information.
· Our practices for notifying and obtaining parents' consent when we collect Personal Information from children, including how a parent may revoke consent.

Information We Collect from Children.
Children can access some parts of our website and its content and use some of its features without providing us with Personal Information. However, most content and features of the Courses and Services are available only to Students of the registered accounts and require us to collect certain information, including Personal Information, from them. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the website.
We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in the educational activity in our Services, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary.
Information We Collect Directly.
We require the child to enter a use name and password when logging into the student account. We /the Instructor assess the academic level of the child before the child takes any Course, and the child will be required to disclose information relating to his or her education during this process. The child will also be required to provide questions, answers, comments and other information when taking the interactive online Course with the Instructor (including, but not limited to course, assignment, and quiz completion activity, interchanges with the Course Instructors, answers to questions, essays and other items submitted to satisfy the Course requirements). 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.
Consent to Record the Course.
We record each and every Session of the Course participated by both Student and Instructor, including the videos and voices of the Student and Instructor. The purpose of recording each Course is to allow the parent to review the study situation of the Student and to allow us to manage the performance of Instructors. The recorded videos will be kept strictly confidential and will be for our internal use only. We will not disclose the recorded videos to the public or share the recorded videos with any third parties without the parents' express consent.
If the parent decides to express a prior consent to our current recording practice at any time, we will block or blur the student's image and distort the student's voice to hide the student's identity in the videos to be recorded after receipt of the parent's request.
