Welcome to the Oyoty service, which is owned and operated by Privately SA, 109-110, Batiment I, EPFL Park Scientific, 1015, Lausanne, Switzerland (collectively referred to as “Privately,” “we,” “us” or “our”).
Oyoty is a smart virtual assistant that educates and guides children when they start using smartphones and social media. This self-help tool is meant to build a child’s understanding of online privacy and responsible online behavior and to give them a way to manage issues that might arise.
Oyoty uses the latest advances in computer vision/ machine learning to spot private or inappropriate content children might post on Social networks, and provide them upfront ways to manage these spotted issues. On the basis of the context of the spotted problem Oyoty serves educational content created by experts to children that helps them understand the problem. Oyoty empowers children to be private and safe as they start to experiment in social media with emphasis on education rather than prohibition. At the same time Oyoty provides progress reviews to parents and offers guidance to deal with issues. The mobile application installed on the child’s smartphone, the parental web dashboard, the emails sent and the push notifications are collectively referred to as the “Service”.
As with most online services, personal information is required in order to set up your account and use our Service. We collect only personal information required to meet the needs of the service or as aggregated statistics to improve our Services. Currently, we collect the following information: Provided by users
We do not sell or rent user’s personal information to third parties. However in response to a subpoena, an official inquiry, any legal requirements, or any summon from law enforcement, we might be obliged to share this information.
We may share part of this information with technology providers, such as providers of cloud-based services, that help us provide the Service to users (“Service Providers”). Our Service Providers will be given access to user information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service under reasonable confidentiality terms.
We may remove parts of data that can identify users and share such data with other parties. We may also combine this information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with an individual and share that aggregated information.
However, the content that children shares on social networks is never shared with other parties.
Oyoty will highlight to parents issues that were not addressed by their children. In doing so, Oyoty will share the problematic content with the parent. Any content and report highlighted and collected by Oyoty is only shared among the members of the family- children and their parent.
User information collected through the Service will be stored and processed in Switzerland and the European Union. Privately is committed to handle all personal data of its users as per the EU General Data Protection Regulation and Swiss Federal Data Protection Act. Currently, we rely on some non-EU based web services (Google, Mixpanel, Twitter, Mailjet and UrbanAirship), which might also have access to part of user information. However none of these services get access to the content or images that have been shared by the children. By using our Service You expressly agrees to such handling of your data.
All passwords handled by the system are encrypted and all communication between various subsystems is also encrypted.
Oyoty may transfer information that we collect about user, including personal information across borders and from their country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. We follow both the Swiss Data protection laws the European Data Protection Regulation. If the user is located outside Switzerland and the European Union with laws governing data collection and use that may differ, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as their jurisdiction. However such transfer will be done only in line with the rules of the EU/Switzerland pertaining to such transfer request.
If the users remove images from Social media through Oyoty, our service does not keep any copies of the removed content.
If user deletes their account- all information about users associated with the account will be immediately deleted. All records will be deleted from our servers within 6 months unless required to be retained for legal reasons.
We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through our Service secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a strong password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. However, Oyoty cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to Oyoty or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. Please do your part to help us. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and account information.
We will not retain any personal information of the child beyond the remit and time that the child uses the service. At any time the parent can delete the profile of the child and all the information related to this account. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact our support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
