KidzVuz believes in safety above all. See, there’s this this thing called the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), it’s there to be sure kids are safe when they are online. We follow all of the COPPA rules.
- Your account must be approved by a parent or other grown up in your life before can leave video or comments on the site.
- Not only do we make sure kids don’t use their real names…even we won’t ask for them. Kids are only known by their username.
- Every single video, comment and written review is approved by a member of the KidzVuz team before being posted to the site. That means no bad words, and nothing a kid shouldn’t see.
- And parents, in keeping with COPPA guidelines, KidzVuz will never sell or share email addresses or identifying information (even if we had it) with any outside vendor.
You can help keep KidzVuz safe, by never sharing your real name, school, or you exact location in any review!
Plus, you need to follow these rules, too:
- No bad language
- No mean comments
- No vulgar images or anything inappropriate for kids
Hey, you can’t have fun if you don’t feel safe!
