Your privacy and that of your students or family is important to us:

Storyvoice does use your personal information for certain stated purposes, such as providing and improving the service and communicating with teachers and parents about upcoming events and product updates. Please read the Privacy Policy below, as it describes what information we collect from you, how we use that information, and the legal bases we have to process your information.

This Privacy Policy governs how Storyvoice, a product owned and developed by Kindi Technologies, Inc., ("Storyvoice," "we," "our," or "us") uses and shares personal information collected by our website at, the Storyvoice mobile and web app, and any associated services (the “Service”).

1. Information Storyvoice Collects

Storyvoice may collect personal information from Users as described below.

Personal Information Volunteered by Users

Our platform does not require the creation of a user account. The personal information we collect is limited to display name (which may be a first name, classroom name, or other display name), and voice audio if a User is called on during a read-aloud. Parents and Educators may also be given the option to provide an email address to receive information on future events and updates.

Additionally, we may collect a device ID in some form (as described in the “Automatically Collected Information” section below) and under some laws that may be considered personal information.

Automatically Collected Information

When a User uses the Service, some information may be automatically collected to help us understand how the Service is being used and how to improve the Service. For example, device type, the device identifier (UDID), the Open Device Identification Number (ODIN), date/time stamps for each visit, browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, clickstream data, User session activity, crash logs, and app versions are all collected for purposes of administering, tracking usage of, and improving the Service. We may store this information in log files.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Storyvoice uses cookies (small text files placed on your device) and similar technologies to provide the Service. The Service may also utilize third-party service providers that set cookies for diagnostic and analytics purposes. Each User has a variety of tools to control cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies, including browser controls to block and delete cookies and controls from some third-party analytics service providers to opt out of data collection through web beacons and similar technologies. User browser settings and other choices may impact the functionality of the Service.

2. Use of Personal Information

We use personal information as follows:

3. Information We Share

Storyvoice does not sell User personal information. We may share User personal information with vendors, consultants, and other third party service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf and at our direction. For example, we rely on data center operators and communications vendors to operate our Service and send session notifications.

We do not share personal information of children under 13 other than by displaying the name and playing the voice audio if a child is speaking during the audience participation segment. We may share relevant recorded audio with an Educator if they request a record of their classroom’s participation before we have deleted that information.

Additionally, we may share User personal information for legal, protections or safety purposes such as:

4. Information Choices and Changes

Users may opt out of providing personal information to the Service at any time by uninstalling the application. Users may also opt out of providing personal information by emailing to have their information removed. When we delete personal information, it will be deleted from our active databases but may remain in our archives for up to 30 days.

Our communication emails to Educators and Parents regarding upcoming events, news and other such topics explain how to opt out of receiving such emails.

5. COPPA and Students

Under the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), verifiable parental consent is needed to collect, use, or disclose personal information (e.g., full name and email address) from each User under 13 years old. In accordance with COPPA, an Educator may act as the agent of the parent or legal guardian of a Student and provide consent on behalf of the parent for Storyvoice’s collection, use, and disclosure of the Student’s personal information. We use commercially reasonable methods, based on available technology and the limited scope of personal information we receive, to obtain verifiable consent from either the Parent or Educator regarding our collection, use, and sharing of information of Users under 13. As required under COPPA, parents can make certain choices regarding how their child’s information is used. Parents should submit these requests either to the Educator, who, as the parent’s agent, must pass those requests to us by emailing, or directly to us by emailing if a child is joining from outside an Educator's group.

6. Information Security

Storyvoice utilizes Google Cloud Storage data centers in the United States and/or European Union for our information storage. Additionally, we use security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Our security procedures and practices are consistent with industry standards applicable to our collection and use of personal information. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

7. Data Retention

We remove the audience participation segment from our uploaded recordings of the sessions, and delete recorded audio from our Users reasonably promptly after each session is completed. We store the information we collect for as long as we believe it is reasonably necessary for us to provide the Services, or for up to 30 days in our archives after you have requested to remove user data.

8. Your California Privacy Rights

California law entitles California residents to certain additional protections regarding Personal Information. For purposes of this section alone, “Personal Information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household. California residents have the right to request:

We will not discriminate against you if you choose to exercise any of these rights. To make any of the above requests, please contact us as set forth at the end of this policy. We may require verification of your identity before further processing your request. In certain instances, we may be permitted by law to decline some or all of such request.

9. Your European Privacy Rights

If you are an EU, UK, or Swiss resident, applicable data protection laws may provide you with certain rights with regards to our processing of your “Personal Data.” To the extent established under applicable law, EU, UK, or Swiss residents may have the right:

To make any of the above requests, please contact us as set forth at the end of this Policy. We may require verification of your identity before further processing your request. In certain instances, we may be permitted by law to decline some or all of such request. Please note that if you make unfounded, repetitive, or excessive requests (as determined in our reasonable discretion) to access your Personal Data, you may be charged a fee to the extent permitted by law.

Please note that if we received your Personal Data from one of our customers (such as your employer), that customer is the data controller for purposes of the GDPR and similar privacy laws and we may need to refer you to such customer for resolution of your inquiries or complaints.

10. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or modify our Privacy Policy from time to time by posting a revised Privacy Policy on our site. The “last updated” legend at the top of this page indicates when this Policy was last revised. As an ongoing user of the Service, you will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Policy. We ask that you refer to the Privacy Policy on a continuing basis so that you understand our current privacy practices.
