2. Your Privacy
When your parent sets up a Mazoola® account for your family, and when you use the Mazoola® App from your own phone or tablet, we collect certain information about you and your use of The Mazoola® app (we sometimes may say “Service” when talking about the app in this policy).
3. So what do we mean by personal data?
There is only one ‘YOU’ in the world…And there is information that helps to identify you as being YOU!
Personal data doesn’t only have to be something you can see…
If you have a mobile phone or tablet… these have a unique device ID – which is also seen as personal data if it can be helped to identify you or decide where you live.
4. What personal data gets collected for you?
When your parent creates a Mazoola® account and adds a profile for you, they need to provide your:
They (your parents or legal guardian) may choose to add extra personal data, like:
5. Why does Mazoola® collect this data and how is it used?
We use this data to provide you with our Mazoola® services and give you a great experience when using the App.
Your nickname or avatar is used to help you know which account you’re in – useful if you have brothers and sisters. If you’re an only child, this is less of a problem, but we also use your nickname so we can address you directly within the app making the experience more friendly and personal.
We use usage information to better understand what features are being used in the app, fix any problems that may exist, and to continue to develop and improve the services we provide to you and your family.
If we notice a feature isn’t being used very much, we can use that insight to investigate why and improve it!
**We will NEVER share your personal data without your parent’s consent! **
6. Your rights & control over your personal data
Right to be INFORMED
Companies aren’t allowed to use your data without getting permission first. This permission is called ‘consent’ and it’s the act of agreeing to something.
When your parents set up your Mazoola® account and added your details, they consented on your behalf to let us process your personal data so you could use the App. However, you have a right to know what personal data is shared with us and have the choice to say, “no – I don’t want you to hold my personal data”.
Right to ACCESS
You have the right to know how companies are using your personal data if they are sharing it with anyone, and where this data is getting stored.
Right to RECTIFICATION
Rectification is another word for ‘correcting’. If any data held on you is incorrect, you have the right to ask for it to be changed to something correct.
Right to ERASURE
If you are no longer using the app or don’t want a company to have access to your data anymore, you have the right to have all your personal data removed and erased from their systems.
Some people call this the ‘right to be forgotten. This is because you’re asking the company to forget about you and any data related to you!
Right to RESTRICT PROCESSING
There are times where you can ask a company to not process certain bits of data that they may have stored about you.
For example, if the data they have on you is incorrect or your data is being processed in a way you didn’t agree for it to be.
Right to OBJECT
If you don’t want your data to be shared with a company anymore, you have the right to say no, and stop your personal data from being used.
Right to DATA PORTABILITY
Portable is another word for being able to move or transport something.
In this case, this is the personal data on you within the app.
If you’d like to get a hold of that data so you can move it somewhere else, you can request that data in a format that can easily be read, and it will be shared in a reasonable time.
Rights in relation to AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING & PROFILING
That’s a mouthful, so let’s break it down:
Automated decision making
When a company might be using bots or a computer program to make a decision without any human involvement.
When companies automatically use your personal data to make a decision on what type of customer you are and to predict what they think you want to see or are interested in. Sometimes this can be useful, but not when used irresponsibly to limit your choice and options.
Rights in relation to AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING & PROFILING
Here’s an example of how automated decision making and profiling might be used:
When you’re applying for your first mobile phone contract online, they may take the information you’ve given to decide if they can give you a contract or not, and what type of phones they think you might want.
If companies are doing this, they will need to let you know this is happening, and if you aren’t happy with it, give you the option to request a human to get involved. You can certainly ask your parents or legal guardian to help you as well.
THAT’S A WHOLE LOT OF RIGHTS…..But what it does is give you the power over your data which is important when you choose to share it with another company.
7. Keeping your personal data safe
Mazoola® systems have lots of safeguards to keep your data secure and safe on our systems, however, there are things you can do as well to keep your own data safe (not just on the Mazoola app either)!
