Privacy Policy

We at RoosterMoney care deeply about your privacy. We believe in transparency, and we’re committed to being upfront about our privacy practices, including how we treat your personal data.

RoosterMoney is the trading name of World Learning Limited (“RoosterMoney”, “we”, “us”, “our”) and corporate details are provided at the end of the policy.

This policy forms part of the RoosterMoney Tracker Conditions and RoosterMoney Payment Conditions (together the “Service Terms”). It describes what information we collect in connection with the Service Terms in the course of providing the relevant services under those Service Terms (“Services”), as well as how we collect it, what we do with that information, the legal basis for processing and the rights and choices you have over how we use your data. This policy covers the personal data of both parents and their children. In order for us to be able to provide the Services to you, it is necessary for you to enter into the Service Terms, including the Privacy Policy, which then enable us to collect, process, share and store the personal data as described in this policy to operate those Services.

Capitalised terms used in this policy that are not defined where they first appear shall have the meaning given in the Service Terms.

The following terms take the meaning given to them in the Data Protection Act 2018: controller, processor, data subject, personal data, personal data breach, data protection officer.

This Privacy Policy was published on September 23 2019 and takes effect from that date.

Any previous version(s) of this policy can be viewed here.

1. Our Role as Controller

We collect certain personal data described below when you and your family use our Services and through other interactions and communications you and they have with us.

We are the party responsible for deciding the means and purposes for processing this personal data, which makes us a ”controller” under the Data Protection Act 2018. If you have any questions or concerns at any time about your data or privacy, please email us at hello@roostermoney.com.

Other service providers may also act as controllers in relation to your personal data:

  • If you sign up for the paid RoosterPLUS subscription through our website, we use Stripe to process payments. In connection with this service that Stripe provides to RoosterMoney, Stripe will collect your email address, card details and Billing Information in order to securely process your subscription payment. The information that you provide through Stripe is subject to the Stripe Privacy Policy. You should read the Stripe Privacy Policy to learn about Stripe’s information collection, usage and your rights in that regard.
  • If you sign up for the paid RoosterPLUS subscription from an iOS device, we rely on Apple iTunes to process the payments and manage the subscription. The information that you provide to Apple is subject to the Apple Customer Privacy Policy. You should read the Apple Customer Privacy Policy to learn about Apple’s information collection, usage and your rights in that regard.
  • If you sign up for the paid RoosterCard subscription through the app, we use Adyen to process payments. In connection with this service that Adyen provides to RoosterMoney, Adyen will collect your email adrress, IP address, card details and billing information in order to securely process your subscription payment. The information that you provide through Adyen is subject to the Adyen Privacy Policy. You should read the Adyen Privacy Policy to learn about Adyen’s information collection, usage and your rights in that regard.

2. Information we collect

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data for processing on the basis specified in Annex A at the end of this Privacy Policy.

  • Personal data to create your account
  • Content you choose to upload to the app
  • Email address and email preferences
  • Usage information
  • Log data and device information
  • Cookies and similar technologies

3. Your children's information

While this policy is governed by English law, we acknowledge that the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) in the United States represents best practice by prohibiting online service providers from knowingly collecting personal data (which includes “personal information” as defined in COPPA) from children under 13 years of age without verifiable parental consent or notice as applicable (“Consent”). Children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using certain features of the Service without Consent.

We are committed to protecting children’s online privacy and complying fully with COPPA. We do not collect any personally identifiable information anywhere on our website or App except where expressly stated. We believe that children should be able to use the Internet in a safe, productive and efficient manner and should be afforded the highest protection available with respect to their personal data.

For that reason, the signup flow for the Service ensures that the individual registering for the account is a parent, and that the parent is over 18 years of age.

RoosterMoney does not permit interest-based advertising on our website or App directed to children under 13 or where we have actual knowledge that a child is under 13.

We work with third party service providers Google Analytics and Mixpanel to better understand your child’s use of the service and to improve it. This data is not shared with any other third parties. For more information on Google Analytics click here and for more information on Mixpanel, click here.

We do not ask for more personal data than is necessary for a child to participate in an activity.

  • We take steps to prevent children from posting or publicly disclosing personal data.
  • Parents can update or delete their children’s personal data within the app (this help article shows you how).
  • Parents can revoke their consent and refuse the further use or collection of personal data from their child.
  • Process for parents accessing, deleting or withdrawing consent:
    • Should a parent wish to access or delete the information we’ve collected from their children (subject to our record-keeping obligations under applicable law) they can do so by deleting their child’s profile from within the RoosterMoney app (see how). Alternatively they can contact us by email at hello@roostermoney.com.
    • The email must contain all of the following:
      1. the parent and account holder’s email address
      2. the child’s username
      3. The parent’s relationship to the child.

How do we notify parents?

  • When a parent creates a RoosterMoney account, we let the parent know that the parent’s consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of any personal contact information for the child (the “personal data”), and that we will not collect, use, or disclose any personal data from the child if the parent does not provide such consent;
  • We set forth the additional items of personal data that we may collect from the child, or the potential opportunities for the disclosure of personal data, should the parent provide consent;
  • We offer a hyperlink to our privacy policy in the email; and
  • We let the parent know how they can provide consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of the information.
