Please continue reading. And thank you for each and every step you take!
The term “Website” refers to the website located at unicefkidpower.org. The term “Mobile Application” refers to our Kid Power smartphone mobile application. In combination, we refer to our Website and Mobile Application as our “Services”.
“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify and contact you (such as your full name, address, telephone number or email address). Certain technical information, such as a “Unique Identifier” (e.g. device ID, IP address, etc.) is also categorized as Personal Information.
“Demographic Information” is general information about you, such as your age, gender or country of residence. If Demographic Information is collected at the same time as your Personal Information, we store the Demographic Information with your Personal Information. Demographic Information is not considered Personal Information unless it is linked to Personal Information about a specific user. There are instances in which we will use your Demographic Information separately from your Personal Information. In these instances, when anonymous data about Users is grouped together for analytical purposes, we refer to the data as “Aggregate Information” or “Anonymized Information”.
Information is collected from Users primarily to make it easier and more rewarding to use our Mobile Application and Website. We collect the minimum amount of information needed to provide a quality experience and, with the exception of Unique Identifiers, we will only collect Personal Information when Users provide it to us.
If Users sign up to receive our newsletter, use our “email a friend” feature or contact our support team, we collect an email address and may also collect your first and last name for the purpose of fulfilling the specific request. Please refer to each sub-section below to learn more about the different types of information we collect from each type of User.
We ask Account Holders for Personal Information when they create a UNICEF Kid Power account. Personal Information we require may include full name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. This information is combined with year of birth, and additionally school name when registering a Kid Power School account. This information is used to assist Account Holders during their engagement with the Services, inform Account Holders of future related services which may interest them, and request feedback about the Mobile Application or Website. Account Holders can choose to opt-out of such communications (see the “opt-out preferences” disclosure section).
Account Holders are able to register Participants by creating a screen name and asserting if they are over or under 13 in order to assign a Kid Power Band. Account Holders can delete affiliated Participants from Kid Power directly from the mobile app or for some users, directly from our website, unicefkidpower.org . Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Certain Account Holders have the ability to invite 3rd party individuals into our system via their email address for invitational and registration purposes. These individuals will be purged after 30-days if no action is taken and they may email us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database at any time.
We ask for information about Participants when an Account Holder signs up to use a service through the Mobile Application. The only Personal Information we collect in relation to a Participant is a device ID and unique screen name, in order to sync a device. In addition, we collect physical activity data (the amount of steps walked, activity duration, and calories) from Participants when they synchronize their Kid Power Band to our Mobile Application. For our UNICEF Kid Power School product, a class or team name is also collected.
Participants’ screen names may be posted publicly on leaderboards. Moreover, other Participants may “follow” Participants via the Mobile Application if they search for the exact screen name. We do not allow Participants to search for other Participants with a partial screen name. When Participants follow each other, they will be able to send each other “cheers” consisting of a pre-rendered floating emoji that shows the sender’s screen name and view each others’ activity progress (e.g. number of total steps taken with the Kid Power Band).
We will only use the Personal Information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. We will not use it for any other purpose without your consent. We may use your Personal Information to:
We may also use Participant information for reporting purposes. For instance, we may provide Aggregate Information about Participants’ participation in Kid Power, such as performance and summary information about teams to participating group leaders and research partners. Outside of daily leaderboards, individual Participants’ data will not be publicly available, and instead will only be available to the Account Holder and any follower(s) of the Participant.
We will also disclose your Personal Information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. If UNICEF is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website, of any change in ownership, uses of your Personal Information, and choices you have regarding your Personal Information.
Since 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of this Website who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We do not disclose Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes; however, if you have any inquiries regarding our disclosure policy, please call or write us at:

As is true of most websites, our Website gathers certain information about your device automatically and store it in log files. This information includes your Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the Website, to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

The security and confidentiality of your Personal Information is important to us. We take reasonable steps to help protect the security and integrity of any information you provide to us by implementing and maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards. For example, our Services’ servers are located in a secure hosted data center with security measures in place, such as encrypted communications, physically secured rooms, firewalls and password protection systems. We also limit access to Personal Information to employees performing a legitimate business function and review our security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If there is a data breach involving unencrypted Personal Information, we will notify Users in accordance with applicable laws. If you have any questions about the security of our Services, you can email us at email@example.com.
