At KIDZBOP.com we make sure we listen to our kids and their parents! If you have a general comment on how we can improve our site and/or our safety we'd love to hear from you. If you have a specific question about your child's account please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We at KIDZBOP LLC. have been working over the last ten years to deliver safe and entertaining music for kids via our KIDZ BOP CDs ("today's biggest hits sung by kids for kids"). Thanks to you and your children, we are happy to say we are the number one music brand for children ages 5-12 and have sold more than 11 million KIDZ BOP CDs to date!
Our mission with our music offering has been to entertain and empower children to express themselves through safe, age-appropriate, popular music. With KIDZBOP.com, we wanted to extend our mission to online and create a FREE and SAFE social network and video sharing site just for kids! Allowing children the ability to be social and safe certainly has many challenges and over the last five years we have worked hard to meet these challenges and provide an online environment for your child that is safe and fun and teaches children how to be creative with technology. We imagine you might have a lot of questions, so we created this section just for Parents so you can better understand our site and how your children can use it.
At KIDZBOP.com, we offer our Members the ability to express themselves safely by uploading user-generated content (videos and photos). Through our creativity tools, children are encouraged to express themselves by making their own Webshows or running their own video Super Contests. This is always done safely @ KIDZBOP.com, as the content your child uploads is always pre-screened via our trained moderation staff "THE KIDZ BOP SQUAD" to ensure your child NEVER shares or displays any Personally Identifiable Information.
Also, to make sure you are kept up to date on your child's uploading behavior we will:
If the content IS approved, we will email you a link to view the content on our site. If you do not approve of the content your child has uploaded, your child has the ability to delete any user-generated content at anytime from their Profile page.
If the content is NOT approved, we will email you and let you know the reason the content was flagged. Flagged content will NOT appear on our site and will be automatically deleted from our database.
At KIDZBOP.com Members can safely express themselves (via our "SafeText Messaging System") by creating "Status" updates on their Profile pages. They can also send and receive Friend Requests with other Members on our site. If your child and another Member become friends, we allow them to post text comments, via our "SafeText Messaging System," on each others' videos, photos and Profile pages.
To ensure the safety of this communication, we have implemented state-of-the-art Crisp Thinking's Net Moderator system (http://www.crispthinking.com/solution-U13.htm), which contains automatic filters that prevent members from easily sharing any Personally Identifiable Information (including but not limited to school names, city names and numbers of any kind - both alpha and numeric). The system filters the text and makes sure the words and/or phrases do not match a set of pre-determined words that are not allowed. Net Moderator also consists of a back end moderation system which alerts our moderators to possible infractions that we can then investigate.
While we are confident our SafeText Messaging System makes it difficult to easily publish Personally Identifiable Information, we understand that no system is perfect and our Members may find ways of circumventing our filters. To that point, we ask that all parents talk to their children about never giving any Personally Identifiable Information to another user and, if they do come in contact with another Member who has revealed Personally Identifiable Information, we ask that your child report this abuse by easily clicking on the "Report" button located next to the text.
Here at KIDZBOP.com we have a 3 strike policy. If one of your child's Safe Text comments is flagged by another user and found to be objectionable, we will send you an email providing the message that was flagged and explaining why it was found to be objectionable. We will also send your child an Alert to their Profile. If one of their messages is flagged and found to be objectionable a total of 3 times, the KIDZ BOP Squad will automatically delete their account.
During registration we asked your child if they would like to receive email Alerts from KIDZBOP.com. Alerts are notifications that we send to your child's profile page and, if your child requests, to their provided email address. Your child's email address will never be revealed by us on the site and will never be shared with a third Party for any reason.
We will ONLY send your child an Alert via email for the following reasons:
After registration children may provide their own phone number if they wish to receive KIDZ BOP Text Alerts. Text Alerts are SMS notifications that we send to your child's phone number. Message and data rates may apply. Your child will not receive Text Alerts until 48 hours after they sign up. They can change or cancel their Alerts at any time from their Profile Settings page. Your child's phone number will never be revealed by us on the site and will never be shared with a 3rd Party for any reason. If your child gives us their phone number to receive Text Alerts we send the parent an email notifying them of this and provide the parent the ability to deactivate Text Alerts for the child's account. If the parent decides to deactivate Text Alerts we will delete the child's phone number from our database.
We will only send your child a Text Alert for the following reasons:
In order to maintain a safe community, you need strict rules. At KIDZBOP.com we employ our "KIDZ BOP Rules of Play." These rules were crafted to ensure that your child never shares any Personally Identifiable Information or includes anything that is inappropriate for children under 13 years of age. Upon registration at our site, your child agreed to abide by these rules. In addition, every time they upload any video or photo content we make them agree to our Rules of Play, reminding them of what is and is not okay to share on our website.
KIDZBOP.com is a fun and safe place for you to share your talents and interests with friends and family, and check out other kids doing stuff they love. If everyone follows the guidelines below, it will stay that way.
Before using our SafeText feature you must agree to that you will use the SafeText feature responsibly and the messages you write will follow these rules:
