1. Acceptance of Terms
Kidas Inc. (referred to as “Kidas,” “us,” “our,” or “we”), provides the Kidas.net website (https://www.kidas.net/) (the “Site”), the Kidas mobile application, as well as the child virtual activity monitoring and parent alert service (the Site, mobile application and service collectively referred to as the “Service”), subject to your compliance with the following Terms of Service (“Terms”).
Kidas reserves the right to amend these Terms at our discretion and at any time. The provisions contained herein supersede all previous notices or statements regarding our Terms with respect to use of the Service. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will post the updated Terms of Service on the Site and update the new effective date. If you are a subscriber to the Service (“Account Holder”), Kidas will also provide notice of material changes to the Terms of Service to the email address you use to register for the Service. Your continued use of this Site and Service after notice of such amendments will constitute acknowledgement and acceptance of the amended Terms.
As used in these Terms, references to our “Affiliates” include our owners, licensees, assigns, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, officers, directors, suppliers, partners, sponsors, advertisers, and includes (without limitation) all parties involved in creating, producing, and/or delivering this Site and/or contents and the Service.
2. Description of the Service
As part of the Service, Kidas automatically reviews the online activity of the child or children you register under your account (“Registered Child” or “Registered Children”), including activity conducted through emails, text messages, and/or interactions with social media websites and mobile applications (each a “Covered Application”) on the child’s mobile device. Kidas provides the Account Holder (“you” or “your”) with email alerts flagging signals of cyberbullying, depression, online predators, and other potential dangerous activity that our proprietary artificial intelligence system (“AI System”) detects through review of each Covered Application. The email alerts may also provide educational material to give you background information regarding the virtual content the AI System has detected your child has accessed in the monitoring period, including new Internet trends, slang and abbreviations, and popular social media accounts, amongst other topics. The Service currently supports English language interactions only.
We reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to make changes to how we operate and provide our Service, including adding new features, modifying existing features, or discontinuing existing features.
3. Account Registration
a. General. You must be 18 years or older in order to sign up for a subscription to the service (“Parent Account”). In order to register for a Parent Account account on our Site, you must provide Kidas with your name, email address and password (“Registration Data”). To complete set up of your account and access your personal account information page (“Account Portal”) on the Site, you must set up a password of your choice. To review your Registration Data and make any updates, you must use the password and the email you used to register for the Service as your username to access your personal Account Portal.
Accuracy of Information. Accurate records enable Kidas to provide the Service to you. In order for the Service to function effectively, you must keep your Registration Data up to date and accurate. If you do not do this, the accuracy and effectiveness of the Service to you will be affected. You bear all risks associated with providing Kidas with inoperable or incorrect contact information.
Impersonating Another Account Holder. You agree you will not attempt to sign into another Kidas subscriber’s Account Portal or gain access to another subscriber’s information for any purpose.
b. Account Security. You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password which, together with your username, allows you to access the Service. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Service or portions of it using your username, password, or other security information. Our employees will never ask you for your password. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Parent Account, you agree to notify Kidas immediately.
c. Parent or Legal Guardian. The Service is only to be used to monitor children under 18 years old. You may register only your own minor child or children to be monitored under your subscription to the Service. You hereby represent and warrant that you are the parent or legal guardian of the Registered Child(ren) and that each Registered Child is under 18 years old. You agree to uninstall the Kidas mobile application from the mobile device of the Registered Child and terminate your subscription once the Registered Child turns 18 years old.
4. Subscription Plans, Payment, & Cancellation
a. Free Trial, Subscription Plans, & Payment. The Service is offered on a free, limited duration, trial basis (“Free Trial”) or paid subscription basis (“Paid Subscription”) only. At time of registration for a Free Trial, you will be asked to make a choice whether you would like to subscribe to the Service on a monthly billing cycle or yearly billing cycle, if you choose to continue with a Paid Subscription after the expiration of the trial period. You may cancel your Free Trial any time during the trial period. If you do not cancel your Free Trial during the trial period, your account will convert to a paid subscription automatically on the expiration date of the Free Trial for the billing cycle you chose when you registered for the Free Trial. If you choose the monthly subscription, a monthly subscription fee is charged each month, starting on either (1) the day your free trial expires or (2) the day you register for a Paid Subscription account, to the credit card or payment method registered with Kidas. If you choose the yearly subscription, a yearly subscription fee is charged, starting on either (1) the day your free trial expires or (2) the day you register for a paid subscription account to the credit card or payment method registered with Kidas. Monthly billing cycle subscriptions automatically renew every month, charging your card or payment method every 30 business days from the first day of the previous subscription billing cycle, unless you cancel the subscription at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription cycle. Yearly billing cycle subscriptions automatically renew every year, charging your card or payment method every 365 business days from the first day of the previous subscription billing cycle, unless you cancel the subscription at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription cycle.
b. Cancellation. To cancel your subscription at any time, please navigate to your Account Portal and follow the listed steps. You must also uninstall the Kidas mobile application from each Registered Child’s mobile device to complete the cancellation process. Upon cancellation of the subscription and uninstallation of the mobile application, the Service will terminate at the end of the current billing cycle and Kidas will cease any further monitoring of all Covered Applications associated with your Registered Child(ren). Even if you cancel your subscription before a billing cycle is complete, Kidas will not provide a refund.
5. Privacy & Security
b. Scope of Children’s Information Collected
Generally. During your registration for a Parent Account, Kidas will collect the name, date of birth, gender, school, and address of each Registered Child associated with your Parent Account. In connection with providing the Service to you thereafter, Kidas’s AI System will monitor and process all communications to and from the Registered Child on all Covered Applications. Kidas also collects certain technical information from the Registered Child’s phone, including IP address, MAC address, and specific phone device information.
Consent. You expressly consent to Kidas’s collection, monitoring, review, and caching of any information obtained by the AI System from or related to a Registered Child’s use of a Covered Application, including all communications to and from such Covered Application.
Termination of Information Collection. You may terminate Kidas’s ability to access, collect, monitor, review and cache new information from any Covered Application by terminating your subscription through your Account Portal and uninstalling the Kidas mobile application from each Registered Child’s device.
Questions on Information Collected & Policies. Questions about Kidas’s policies or use of information from children under the age of 13 can be directed to Kidas at email@example.com.
b. Reporting Policies
Health, Welfare, and/or Safety Concerns. We provide alerts to you regarding your Registered Child’s online activities. If our alerts cause you to suspect or determine a threat to the health, welfare, or safety of any individual or entity, you should contact law enforcement or other governmental agencies to make a report. If we identify information that in our sole discretion indicates health, welfare, or safety concerns for an individual or entity, we have the right, but not the obligation, to make reports to law enforcement or other appropriate governmental agencies, and you consent to our authority to do so. The foregoing consent is a condition to your use of the Service.

You further agree that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of the Terms. The arbitrator also has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.

b. Class Actions. YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT PERMIT CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRAL TRIBUNAL MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
Territorial Restrictions. We control and operate our Service from the United States and we make no representations or warranties that the information or services provided through our Service are appropriate for access or use in other jurisdictions.
