User Accounts & Permitted Use

When You create an account with Us, You must provide Us information that is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of Your account on Our Service.

Downloading the Application

Prior to any registration on the mobile Application, the Account Administrator must download the Application. The Application is available to be downloaded through the Application Store to a tablet or smartphone (hereinafter the Device). It is only possible to install a single Application per Device.

Account Administrator Registration

Once the Application is installed on the Device, any person who wants to use the Service must register and create a profile containing their Personal Data. Registration of the Account Administrator is required. To register, the Account Administrator must either sign in using a Third-Party Social Media Service Account or give a name, email address, and create a password to enable the creation of an Account after activation and acceptance of the Terms and Conditions, End User License Agreement and Privacy Policy. Personal Data in relation to the Account Administrator is processed in accordance our Privacy Policy. Such Data are strictly personal and non-transferable. The Account Administrator guarantees that they over 18 years of age and that their identification details are correct. They also guarantee that the provisions of the present Terms and Conditions are compatible with any and all laws and statutes that apply to them, and that they may freely accept the Terms and Conditions. An email is sent by Us to the address indicated by the Account Administrator in order to confirm the registration. The Account Administrator may then access their Profile via the Application.

Passwords

You (the Account Administrator) are responsible for safeguarding the password that You use to access the Service and for any activities or actions under Your password, whether Your password is with Our Service or a Third-Party Social Media Service.

You agree not to disclose Your password to any third party. You must notify Us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of Your account.

You alone are responsible for the confidentiality of the password and release KidCall and its Affiliates from any responsibility in this respect. You must undertake to change Your password periodically and if it is suspected that the password confidentiality has been compromised.

Account Management Tasks for Account Administrator

  • Changing the name, email, and/or login password of the Account Administrator.

  • Setting and maintaining a confidential Parental Pin Code.

  • Setting a profile image for the Account Administrator.

  • Adding, editing, or deleting an additional Parent or Guardian Profile.

  • Adding, editing, or deleting Child Profiles and creating a Child Profile Avatar.

  • Setting call time limits for Child Profiles.

  • Selecting a subscription to Our Premium Service.

  • Sending and/or approving inbound connection requests from Friends (other child profiles), Family (father or mother), or Relatives (grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.).

Adult Profile Images

Profile Images (photographs) for themselves can be uploaded by the Account Administrator or other Family or Relatives that are over the age of 18. The Profile Image is used to help a Child using the Application to identify an Authorized Adult that they may interact with. You authorize the use of the photograph You uploaded when registering and any other image later uploaded or provided by You. You can, at any time, select another photograph or image for Your account profile.

Child Profile Avatars

Account Administrators, when setting up a Child Profile, can choose to create an avatar with the Child’s likeness. The avatar is a digital representation of the Child’s appearance. The Account Administrator can create the avatar by choosing the gender, skin color, eye color, hair color and hair style from a selection of digitally drawn facial features. The final representative avatar is cartoonlike so that the Child cannot be identified in real life.

Contact List of Friends, Family, and/or Relatives

Once registered, only the Account Administrator can add Friends, Family or Relatives. These contacts are added to the Account Administrator and Child contact list after acceptance from the contact or of an invitation from the Account Administrator. The invitation is sent directly to the Contact either via SMS and/or Messenger notification or via an invite notification within the Application. The invited contact must download the Application and have access to the internet to use the Services. The contact must confirm their identity and agree to be among the Account Administrator Friend, Family or Relative contacts. The contact must also confirm acceptance of the present Terms and Conditions, End User License Agreement, and Privacy Policy in order to be registered.

Parental Pin Code

The Account Administrator is asked to enter a 6-digit Parental Pin Code of their choosing whenever they wish to access a restricted area of the Application, or approve an outgoing or incoming connection request. This is to prevent Children who are using the Services from adding unknown contacts or gaining access to the restricted area.

Video Calls

Friends, Family and Relatives who are approved to call one another by the Account Administrator can initiate video calls with each other and initiate premium content and games after the call is connected. Media is encrypted end-to-end (E2E) using WebRTC security protocols. We do not mediate in the media exchange, which takes place through direct communication between the callers. As We do not intercept the media, it is not possible to record or to transcode the media or to make it interoperate with other RTC services.

Advertising

An advertising supported version of the Service is available which allows use of Our Service with limited call minutes, limited access to premium games and content, and limited Friend, Family and Relative connections. We use Service Providers to show advertisements to You to help support and maintain Our Service. All advertising is age-appropriate for children 13 years of age or younger.

Subscriptions

Subscription Period

We offer paid Subscription though the Apple or Google Play in-app purchase system which will require your Apple or Google password to be entered before purchase. If You subscribe to our Service and opt into a paid Subscription, You may use the Service with unlimited call minutes, access all premium games and content, have unlimited Friends, Family and Relative connections, and use the Service advertising-free with no in-app purchases. You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (such as monthly or annually), depending on the type of Subscription plan you select when purchasing the Subscription.

At the end of each period, Your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless You cancel it or the Company cancels it.

A paid Subscription is shared with the other caller during the call, so non-subscribed contacts can access all premium content and games during the call with a paid Subscriber.

You may manage subscriptions & turn off auto-renewal by going to Settings after purchase.

Subscription Cancellations

You may cancel Your Subscription renewal either through Your Apple or Google settings page or by contacting the Company. You will not receive a refund for the fees You already paid for Your current Subscription period and You will be able to access the Service until the end of Your current Subscription period.

Canceling a subscription will immediately end access to all premium content and games.

You must Cancel at least 24 hours before the current billing period ends to avoid renewal charges.

Billing

Payment will be charged to Apple iTunes or Google Play Account for mobile app subscriptions. It is your responsibility to ensure your payment information is up to date with these Service Providers so your Service is not interrupted or canceled.

Fees & Fee Changes

The Company, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period.

The Company will provide You with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give You an opportunity to terminate Your Subscription before such change becomes effective.

Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes Your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.

Fees listed on other websites may not be accepted. We may sell Our products through other channels, and We do not control when they are updated. We reserve the right not to accept a price listed from another source other than our own.

Refunds

Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable.
