Kidlink Association is a non-profit organization registered in 2009 in Göteborg, Sweden. Our services are free. Our goal is to help kids and youth learn about themselves, find friends in other countries and collaborate with them.
- We collect and share personal data to be able to give our users access to our site and to enhance a global moderated dialog through educational activities.
- We attempt to protect our young participants from any covert collection of personal information by outsiders.
- Our Listserv mailing list software distributes messages to members based on lists of participants' email addresses. These lists (and e-mail addresses) are only available to our administrators who use it to correct problems and complaints. They are never shared with users, or outside organizations. Users can sign off from our mailing lists anytime. As soon as they have signed off, their email address will disappear from our mailing list system.
Any information posted to our web or sent to our mailing lists becomes public information. Children are asked to exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information. We do not collect home addresses, telephone numbers, race data, family income, social security numbers, as such information is not needed to reach our goal.
There are no advertisements on Kidlink's web site. We do not employ technical surveyance tools like "cookies" or passive tracking software on our website. We never look at the specific usage of our website by identifiable individuals. (We do use such technology to help users do what they want. For example, cookies are used to remember a user's choice of language when in KidCom.) We will make every effort to make parents and other users aware of the presence of and reason for any future implementation of passive tracking features.
Children are required to register with their true names. We allow however students to use a special school code instead of the family name, if their teacher is registered and known by us.
