2. COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
2.1 Daycare Provider Account Information
In order to use certain Services, Daycare Providers must have a valid Kinderdrop account to log into the Kinderdrop platform (“Daycare Provider Account”). Each Daycare Provider must be licensed with the Ontario Ministry of Education and must carry its own insurance coverage. When you register for an account as a Daycare Provider, Kinderdrop collects your account username and password in order to authenticate your account access and provide you with access to the Services. Kinderdrop also collects the insurance information, contact information and any other Personal Information that you may choose to provide for publication on the App and Website, including email and telephone number, address, business information, and various features of the business that the Daycare Provider may choose to publicize. Basic business information of the Daycare Provider that does not constitute personal information, such as business address, email address, and phone number, will be shared with the public.
2.2 Parent Users and Children
Parents and guardians who visit the Website in order to find daycare options for their child(ren) (“Parent Users”) have the option of registering for a free Parent User account (“Parent User Account”) to save and share information on the platform. In order to register for a Parent User Account, you must provide your first and last name, email address, and certain other Personal Information about the child(ren) being signed up for daycare such as their full name, age, profile photo, food restrictions, development level, and any special or medical needs that Daycare Providers may need to be made aware of. This information will not be public; however, it will be shared with daycare providers which the Parent Users contact about availabilities. Parent User Account information will be provided to Daycare Providers on an as-needed basis. Limited Parent User Account information, such as the Parent User’s name and profile picture, may also be visible to other users if the Parent User chooses to leave a review for a Daycare Provider. Kinderdrop will collect and store transaction history data to allow you to view your transaction history.
