PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE. IF YOU ARE OVER 16 YEARS OF AGE, YOUR ONLY ACCESS TO THIS SITE SHOULD BE AS A PARENT MEMBER OR AS A GROM SOCIAL GUEST AS DEFINED BELOW:
Gromsocial.com is operated by Grom Social, Inc. (also known within this document as "Grom Social", "we", or "us"). Gromsocial.com is a website that provides a friendly and safe environment for children between the ages of 5 and 16 years, with their parent's consent and supervision, to experience social networking, including such features as games, chat rooms, message boards, email, music/photo/video uploading and sharing, and other age-appropriate activities. Our services include our website (www.gromsocial.com) and other features, content, and functionality offered by us from time to time in connection with our website.
"Visitor" is someone who is browsing through the public pages on Site without registering for or logging into Grom Social as a member.
"Grom or Child" is someone between the ages of 5 and 16 who wishes (or has registered) to be a Member of Grom Social.
"Parent" is someone over the age of 16, who is either the parent or a legal guardian of a child wanting to register (or has registered) to be a Member of Grom Social.
“Grom Guest” is someone over the age of 16 who is not a parent and is a registered member of the Site with limited access to the Site’s features.
"You" is in reference to you as the Parent and legal guardian, and your Child, whom you have granted access to the Site.
"Trial Grom" is a child who has registered with the Site but has not yet been activated and/or approved by the parent. Trial Grom accounts are valid for 7 days from the first login; however, if parental consent is not granted by account activation and/or approval within 10 days of account sign up, the Grom Social Profile and all associated information will be deleted. With this account, Trial Groms will have limited access to the Site.
"Grom" is a child who has created an account that has been activated and/or approved by a parent or legal guardian. Grom members have full access to the site.
By using and/or visiting our Site (collectively "us") you:
(1) agree to be bound by these terms and conditions;
(3) agree to be bound by other policy and legal notices that may be posted on the Site from time to time.
3. Modification to Agreement
We may change or update this Agreement from time to time, and any such modifications shall be effective upon posting on the Site. Your use of our Site after a change has been posted signifies your agreement to any such changes. You should review this Agreement periodically to make sure you are up to date on any changes. This Policy was last updated on September 16, 2016.
You must be sixteen (16) years old or younger and have parental or legal guardian consent to be, and continue to be, a Grom Member on the Site.
You must be 17 years of age or older and the legal parent or guardian of a child wishing to use the Site in order to sign up as a Parent Member and sign up your child as a Grom Member. Parents may only register their own child(ren).
Anyone 17 years of age or older may register as a Grom Guest with limited access to the Site.
The Site is not intended for children over 16. A Child Membership may be terminated without warning, if we believe that the Child Member is over 16 years of age. A Parent Membership (and concurrently an associated Child's Membership) may be terminated without warning if we believe that you are under 17 years old or are not the legal Parent of any child you have approved for membership on this Site. During the Membership registration process, Parent Members and Child Members will be prompted to provide personal information that allows us to know who you and your child are ("Registration Information").
By using the Site, Parent Members and Child Members represent and warrant that:
(a) all Registration Information they submit is truthful, accurate, current and complete;
(b) they will maintain the accuracy of such Registration Information by updating and revising it promptly; and
(c) their use of the Site does not violate any applicable law or regulation. You authorize us to make any inquiries, either directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to validate your Registration Information, including engaging third parties to provide such services as age and identity verification on the Site. We reserve all rights to take legal action against anyone who misrepresents personal information or is otherwise untruthful about their identity, and to suspend or cancel Memberships established using inaccurate or incomplete information.
5. Registration Information and Membership Security
Children may begin the registration process with their Parents or alone, but will not have full access to the site until a Parent activates and/or approves their child’s account. Child members who have unactivated and/or unapproved accounts (Trial Groms) will not be able to access any feature that allows the child to communicate or share personally identifiable information ("PII"), such as chat, text posts or comments, images or video uploads until his/her parent provides activation and/or verifiable parental consent. During the registration process by a Child, the Child will be asked to provide a "Grom Name" or "login name" which will be the public name used by the Child on the Site. All "Grom Names” will go through a profanity filter to ensure that it is appropriate. The Child will also be asked to provide a password, provide his/her birth date, birth month and year and his/her Parent's email address. The child's registration will not be complete until his/her Parent completes the registration process by activating and/or approving the Child’s account. Once the child is activated and/or approved by a Parent, she/he becomes a Grom Social Member and the Child will have access to the site. The Parent will receive access to the Parent Portal upon activating and/or approving their Child’s account.
The Parent Portal gives parents control over which activities their child participates in as a Grom Social member as well as the ability to monitor all of their child’s onsite activity.
Parents approve their child’s account by providing verifiable parental consent using one of three methods that are approved by COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act).
- 1. Phone Call to our registration hotline: A parent or guardian can call 1-866-618-GROM (4766) to speak with one of our trained Grom Social representatives. Our representative will help you verify your Grom account and send you an email when the verification is complete.
- 2. Parent Signature / Permission Slip: Parents can download, complete and sign a Grom Social Permission Slip and return it by email to support@gromsocial or mail it to: Grom Social, P.O. Box 1851, Myrtle Beach, SC 29578
- 3. Secure Payment of $1: Parents can make a quick one-time payment of $1.00 using a secure pay wall to authenticate their identity and provide verifiable consent.
a) A Child's Grom Social Username. Grom Social uses filtering software against Usernames to restrict the use of profanity.
b) Misuse of Username or Identity. No Member may impersonate any person or entity or misrepresent a Member's identity or affiliation with any person or entity, including using another person's username, password or other account information, or another person's name, likeness, voice, image or photograph. Members agree to promptly notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org of any unauthorized use of a Child or Parent Member's username, password, or other sensitive account information. Members shall notify Grom Social of any breach of security involving or relating to the Site. Members should never respond to online requests for Member passwords other than in connection with the log-on process for the Site. Any such password requests should be forwarded to us at email@example.com.
c) Liability and Loss due to Account Abuse. Disclosure of a password to any other person is at a Member's own risk. Although we will not be liable for a Member's losses caused by any unauthorized use of any Member information, Members may be liable for our losses or the losses of others as a result of such unauthorized use. We do not provide Internet access. Members are solely responsible for any fees associated with any Internet connection that provides access to the Site. Grom Social reserves the right to charge for some or all aspects of the Site. We reserve the right to interrupt the Site with or without prior notice for any reason or no reason without liability to Members for any unavailability of the Site. Except as provided by law or otherwise provided in this Agreement. Grom Social has the right at any time for any reason or no reason to change and/or eliminate any aspect(s) of the Site as it sees fit in its sole discretion.
6. Verification and Safety
We believe your child's safety on the Internet is important. While there is no absolute method of ensuring a completely safe environment, we take seriously our mandate to secure "verifiable parental consent," as required under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). We are always looking into new and better ways to verify your consent so that we are not collecting or potentially disclosing information from your child that you did not authorize.
