Privacy Policy

In Kindoma, we are building a magical place where families connect with their loved ones. Our wish is to connect families that live apart and to give them an easy and enriching way to share. Kindoma is a network for your family (the “Site”) where you (the “User”) can access content and communicate with other Users. To make this system work, we have created a transparent and accountable system.

This is our privacy policy and we will comply with it, as well as applicable U.S. privacy laws, when we gather and use information from Users of our services. We pledge transparency about the information we monitor and collect from you. We encourage you to read this privacy policy to understand what we do with the information we collect from you.

By using or accessing Kindoma, and agreeing to our Terms of Use you hereby agree to accept the practices described in this privacy policy (the “Policy”).

What Personal Information we collect:

In order to create an online network for your family, we need to collect some personally identifiable information from you to set up an account. A “User Account” provides access to the Site and requires an email address, a password, and year of birth (must be at least 18 at the last day of the previous year to create an account). With a User Account, the User becomes a representative of a household and can link to other Users who are representatives of other households on the Site. Once the User Account is created, the User uploads a profile picture.

Why we collect Personal Information:

Among other things, we use Personal Information to:

The User has control over what they share on Kindoma:

The User is a representative of their household in communication in Kindoma. The User may share video (synchronously or asynchronously) and other personal information about those they designate as a member of their household (“Household Family Members”). At any time, the User may view and edit their profile picture or their household connections. Users can opt to not receive any promotional email from us, and ask us to delete or disable their account.

What if I have Household Family Members under the age of 18:

You must be at least 18 at the last day of the previous year to create a User Account on Kindoma.

Additionally, we store the transaction history of all commerce transactions done through Kindoma.
