COPPA Notice to Parents

District Zero
Direct Parental Notice Regarding Collection of Children’s’ Information


District Zero is a wellness-first learning system to resolve classroom burnout. “Learners” such as students or mentees complete check-ins on our platform so that “Leaders,” such as teachers or team leads, can better understand their Learners’ wellness journey. 

Because Learners of all ages can sign up and use District Zero’s services, District Zero may collect information that may be used to identify children under thirteen (13) (“Personal Information”) through the platform.  Accordingly, pursuant to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), District Zero provides this notice to tell you that we endeavor to obtain prior verifiable parental consent prior to the knowing collection of Personal Information from children under the age of 13 who sign up to use our platform. The purpose of this Notice is to give parents and legal guardians additional information about District Zero’s practices regarding collecting and using the Personal Information of children under 13 years of age. District Zero will not collect Personal Information about your child without your consent.

For purposes of this Notice, “child” or “children” means a child or children under 13 years of age, and “you” or “your” means a parent or legal guardian authorized to consent to District Zero’s collection of Personal Information for the children listed on this form.

You are receiving this Notice because you indicated in your registration materials that there are children under the age of 13 who have signed up for an account. If that is not the case, please contact us by emailing support@districtzero.co or by calling +1-415-867-8260 so that we may update our records.

Children’s Information We Collect
When a child under 13 signs up to use our platform, we will collect Personal Information from them such as their account information (name, email address, and date of birth), login credentials, and the content they submit on our website, such as responses to check-in questions. We also collect information from any correspondence we exchange with the Learner, such as when the Learner contacts us with questions or feedback, and marketing data, such as the Learner’s preferences for receiving our marketing communications and details about Learners’ engagement with them. 

Use of Your Child’s Information
We use your child’s Personal Information for internal purposes only, in order to: (1) provide and operate our services; (2) improve our services; and (3) analyze how you use the platform. 

Disclosure of Your Child’s Information
While we do not sell or otherwise share your child’s Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes, we may disclose your child’s Personal Information in the following circumstances:

- Vendors and Service Providers: We may employ third party vendors and service providers to perform tasks on our behalf, or help us operate our platform. We may share your child’s Personal Information with these parties to enable them to perform these functions. For example, we may use a data hosting service to store and process information that we collect through the platform. Unless you are otherwise informed, these third parties do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

- Business Transfers: Your child’s Personal Information may be transferred in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, transition of service to another provider.  Your child’s Personal Information may be transferred to a successor or affiliate alone or as part of that transaction along with other assets.

- Legal Requirements: We may disclose your child’s Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of District Zero, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the System or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

Your Choices
Your consent is required for District Zero to collect, use, and disclose Personal Information belonging to the child who wants to sign up to be a Learner and is under 13. If you do not consent to this collection, then your child will not be able to use our platform. When a child who wants to sign up to be a Learner enters a date of birth that indicates they are under 13, we will ask the child to provide their parent or guardian’s email address so that we can follow up with you to confirm your consent. You may withdraw your consent for District Zero to collect your child’s Personal Information at any time by emailing us at support@districtzero.co.  Please note that withdrawing your consent will result in termination of your child’s use of the platform and deletion of your child’s Personal Information from our system.

From time to time we may make changes to our Privacy Policy and we will alert you to changes by sending you an email.
