Privacy Policy

Latest update: April 19, 2024

1. About Adojo and this Privacy Policy

Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at Rival Performance Technologies Inc., creators of the mobile application Adojo (the "App"). We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. 

When you visit our App, and use our services, you trust us with your personal information. We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our App and our Services. This privacy notice applies to all information collected through our App,  and/or any related Services, our  website at "https://www.adojo.app/”, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy notice as the "Services").

Adojo is available across North and South America, and this policy is for users living across both continents. Adojo has to follow laws designed to protect personal information in the different countries where our users live. For example, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) in the US, and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (“LGPD”) in Brazil apply to Adojo.

The laws in these countries give children (meaning users under the age of 13 for COPPA, for example) data protection rights. More information about these special rights are in the “Your Privacy Rights” sections below. You can also see the "Children’s Privacy and Parental Controls" section for more information about your rights as a parent or legal guardian of our children users and the measures we take to afford children users with additional protections and comply with applicable data protection legislation, depending on where you are located.

You can learn more about COPPA, by looking at this simple guide from the kidSAFE Seal Program – www.kidsafeseal.com/knowaboutcoppa.html.

 

If you have questions about this policy or how we use your personal information, you can contact us by emailing contact@adojo.app.

2. Definitions

For the purposes of our services, the definitions are as follows:

“Children” or “Child” means any user under the age of 13.

“Personal Information” means any information relating to a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier.

“Privacy Policy” or “Policy” means this Adojo Privacy Policy.

“Processing” means any operation which is performed on Personal Information, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or any kind of disclosure or other use.

“Services” means any service or application offered by Adojo or our website https://www.adojo.app

Any other capitalized term that is not defined in this Policy is defined and has the meaning set out in our Terms of Use.

3. Information You Provide when Setting Up an Account on Adojo

 

Everyone on Adojo has to create an account in order to participate in our experiences.

When you create an Adojo account, we will ask you to provide an e-mail and password (so that you can log into your account). You will have the option to provide a given name and age of the child you are setting the account up for.  This allows us to create a personalized experience for the child.

It is also important to create a password that is not easy to guess.  Never share your password with anyone, not even your friends.

4. Additional Personal Information We Collect When You Use Adojo Features
