Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
Location Information. You can choose whether to allow the App to collect and use real-time information about your device’s location or the Covered Device’s location through the device’s privacy settings. If you block the use of location information on the Covered Device, the Parent App will not be able to track where the Covered Device is located.
Promotional Offers from Easy Parent. If you have opted in to receive certain emails from us but no longer wish to have your email address or contact information used by Easy Parent to promote our own products or services, you can opt-out by following the opt-out instructions provided in the email or by sending us an email stating your request to [email protected] If we have sent you a promotional email, you may unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link we have included in the email.
Targeted Advertising. If you do not want us to use information that we collect or that you provide to us to deliver advertisements according to our advertisers’ target-audience preferences, you can opt out by using the opt out tools created by the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, the Network Advertising Initiative or Google Advertising.
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. In addition to the information indicated above under this heading, you can opt-out of several third party ad servers’ and networks’ cookies simultaneously by using opt-out tools created by Google Advertising, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada or by the Network Advertising Initiative. You may also opt out of our use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page. Opting out of a network does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the network from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.
The security of your Data is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure your Data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. We store information you provide to us behind firewalls on secure servers. All information collected and used by third-party payment service providers is subject to their privacy policies. We are not responsible for any third-party transfer, storage, processing, or use of information collected by third-parties.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Easy Parent Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Data, we cannot guarantee the security of Data transmitted to the Easy Parent Services. Any transmission of Data is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site or App.
Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will retain personally identifiable Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Under some circumstances we may anonymize your Data so that it can no longer be associated with you or your Child. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified Data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your Child, and without your consent (on behalf of you, as a User, or on behalf of your Child).
Accessing and Correcting Your Data and Information

If you want to review, verify or correct your Data or that of your Child’s, you may send us an email at [email protected] to request access to, correct, or delete any Data that you have provided to us, in respect of yourself or your Child. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement, or cause the information to be incorrect.
We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and your right to access, and to provide you with the Data that we hold about you or your Child, or make your requested changes. Applicable law may allow or require us to refuse to provide you with access to some or all of the Data that we hold about you or your Child, or we may have destroyed, erased, or made such Data anonymous in
accordance with our record retention obligations and practices. If we cannot provide you with access to this Data, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
