UpGo is deeply committed to creating safe and secure services for you and all our users. The principles that guide us include the following: we take protection of your personal information very seriously; we do not sell your personal information to third parties; we strive to provide you with access to and control over the information you give to us; and we take extra precautions for learners under the age of 13, including requiring parental consent.
UpGo, LLC (“We”, “Company”, or “UpGo”) operates the 4UpGo.com personal education website (the “Website”) and UpGo mobile application (the “Mobile App”), courses offered through the Mobile App or Website (“Courses”) and any other of UpGo’s products or services used to facilitate your use of such services (collectively the “Service”). Capitalized terms used in this document, which are otherwise undefined, have the meanings attributed to them in the Company’s Terms of Service which can be found at http://www.4UpGo.com/termsofservice (the “Terms of Service”).
Children Under the Age of 13
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to UpGo. For that reason, we utilize special features to help protect the personal information relating to children under the age of 13.
UpGo does not knowingly permit those under the age of 13 to register directly for our Service and our Service is not intended for children under 13 years of age without the supervision of a parent or legal guardian. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Service without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any personal information on this Service or on or through any of its features. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of the appropriate consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at support.
