What is TickTalk?

TickTalk Tech LLC ("TickTalk," "we," "us," and "our") are the creators of a wireless children’s wearable smartwatch phone and locator that helps parents and guardians communicate with, monitor, track, and locate their child.

How TickTalk Devices Work

Communication Methods By Children

TickTalk Devices work like standalone cell phones and are unlocked devices that can work with GSM carriers worldwide. All pairing, activation, and communication from our TickTalk Devices occurs with our parental control TickTalk App. Children can communicate with Approved Contacts, between TickTalk Devices, and Non-Approved Contacts (if particular settings are disabled). Children can communicate with individuals via:

  • Watch to Watch (i.e. Device to Device): Your Child can contact other Children with TickTalk Smartwatches that have been added by using the Add Friends feature if they are within six (6) feet of each other or by manually entering another TickTalk Smartwatch TTID Identifying Number. These Contacts will be able to access two-way voice calling, video calling, and in-app messaging. 
  • Watch to Approved Cell Phone Users Using the TickTalk App: The Parent (“Admin User”) may approve Contacts who have downloaded the TickTalk App to allow your Child to use two-way voice calling, video calling, and/or in-app messaging.
  • Watch to Approved Cell Phone and/or Landline Numbers: Parents and/or Guardians (“Admin User”) may enter cell phone and/or landline numbers on any cellular phone carrier to allow your Child to contact using two-way voice calling. 
  • Watch to Non-Approved Cell Phone and/or Landline Numbers: If the Dial Pad is enabled and the Firewall is disabled, Children may access two-way calling with any outside third party phone number including non-TickTalk Users or individuals who have not received parental consent. If the Dial Pad is disabled and the Firewall is enabled, only Parent-Approved Contacts will be able to communicate with your Child.

As TickTalk Devices are created for Children, we have taken additional steps to give Parents and/or Guardians a “Locked” Device upon receiving. These steps include:

  • Creating a Firewall Feature that Parents and/or Guardians should immediately enable in the TickTalk App Settings after pairing the Parent (“Admin User”) account with your Child’s TickTalk Device to block any unknown numbers from contacting your Child. 
  • Prompting Parents and/or Guardians to disable the Dial Pad feature to prevent Children from calling landlines and phone numbers outside of the TickTalk App or without parental consent. Parents and/or Guardians can choose to enable the Dial Pad to allow your Child to call any external phone number. Factory default is turned OFF.
    • NOTE: Dial Pad works exactly like the dial pad on your cell phone and will show your Child’s Phone Number if calling an outside line (i.e. 1-555-555-5555). External phone numbers called will not have access to your Child’s Name as this is not a service we enabled with cellular providers. 
  • Automatically setting the Add Friends feature as disabled to prevent your Child from adding other TickTalk Devices within six (6) feet or by sharing their TickTalk Device TTID Identifying Number. While Parents and/or Guardians will receive a notification for any TickTalk Devices added manually or by using the Add Friends feature (or “Radar Scanning” as it is called locally on the TickTalk Device) in the TickTalk App Notification Center, we have automatically disabled this feature to prevent any unwanted contacts from being added without parental consent. Parents and/or Guardians can choose to enable the Add Friends feature to allow your Child to add other TickTalk Devices or manually enter another TickTalk Device TTID Identifying Number to add as a Contact. Factory default is turned OFF.
  • Automatically setting the 911 Emergency Response feature as disabled to prevent Children from accidentally calling 911. Parents and/or Guardians can choose to enable 911 calling to allow your Child to access emergency response from your local emergency services. Factory default is turned OFF.

Types of Contacts Children May Communicate With Using TickTalk Devices

There are five types of Contacts and/or Users to consider when using TickTalk Services and/or Devices. All communication from your TickTalk Devices occurs within your TickTalk App. These Contacts can communicate directly with your Child upon receiving parental consent and approval:

  • Admin User (Parent and/or Guardian): The Admin User is the first person to pair to the Device and create an account for your Child. The Admin User is almost always the Parent and/or Guardian of the Child. The Admin User can also use Remote Answer to prompt your TickTalk Device to call you back within one (1) minute with your end muted. This feature was included for emergency purposes only and is only available to the Admin User and Full Access Users.This user will have Full Access to your Child’s Personal Information including: 
    • Name
    • Profile Picture and/or Avatar
    • Phone Number
    • Birth Date (Optional)
    • Gender (Optional)
    • Precise Location
    • Past Precise Locations (if History Route is enabled)
    • Message Content with the Admin User
    • Group Chat Content (if the Admin User is included in that Group Chat conversation)
    • Device Call Logs
    • Reminders
    • Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) and Phone Book Contacts
    • Blocked Watch SMS Text Log
    • Activity Tracker and Daily Step Goals
    • Device and/or App Settings
  • Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) Age 18+: As a Parent ("Admin User"), you may invite others to download the TickTalk App to become a Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) to use voice calling, video calling, and in-app messaging with your Child. To do so, the individual would download the TickTalk App from the Google Play or Apple Store and request to add your Child’s TickTalk Device by either scanning the Device QR code found under the Device settings or by entering the TTID identifying number if provided by the Parent.

    Once the Contact has been approved by the Parent ("Admin User") as an Approved App User (“Contact”), the information the Parent (“Admin User”) provided in the “name” box upon creating a Child Account will be visible. If the Parent ("Admin User") has not entered any information into the “name” box upon creating a Child Account, the Device IMEI number will be visible without any Child Personal Identifying Information.

    Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) have the option to delete their account at any time and/or can be removed by the Parent (“Admin User”) at any time. The Parent (“Admin User”) will be notified of any Contacts adding your Child’s TickTalk Device and prompted to set the individual access levels. The Parent (“Admin User”) can choose between Full Access or Limited Access for each App User (“Contact”). 
    • Full Access App Users (“Contacts”): Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) who have Full Access have the same access level as the Parent (“Admin User”). Full Access App Users are typically Parents, Guardians, and close family members (i.e. Grandparents) who need access to locating capabilities or the ability to edit your Child’s TickTalk Device settings. Full Access App Users can view and/or edit your Child’s Personal Information including:
      • Child Name
      • Child Profile Picture and/or Avatar
      • Child Phone Number
      • Child Birth Date (optional)

      • Group Chat content involving that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) which may contain Personal Information
      • Video Content with that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) from real-time 2-Way FaceTalk Video Calling which happens in real-time and cannot be recorded and/or stored, but may contain Personal Information
      • Child Device Call Logs
      • Child’s Reminders
      • Child’s Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) and Phone Book Contacts
      • Blocked SMS Text Log for your Child’s Device
      • Child’s Daily Step Goals and Current Steps
      • Child’s Device and/or App Settings
      • Greeting Card Content sent to that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) which may contain Personal Information
      • Full Access users can also use Remote Answer to prompt your TickTalk Device to call you back within one (1) minute with your end muted. This feature was included for emergency purposes only and is only available to the Admin User and Full Access Users.
    • Limited Access App Users (“Contacts”): Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) who have Limited Access, such as extended family members and/or friends, can view your Child’s Personal Information including:
      • Child Name
      • Child Profile Picture and/or Avatar
      • Child Phone Number
      • Message Content with that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) including any Group Chats involving the Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) which may contain Personal Information
      • Video Content with that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) from real-time 2-Way FaceTalk Video Calling which happens in real-time and cannot be recorded and/or stored, but may contain Personal Information
      • Greeting Card Content sent to that particular Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) which may contain Personal Information
  • Parent-Approved App Users ("Contacts") Under The Age of 13: A Child under the age of 13 may download the TickTalk App on their personal cell phone and request to be a Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) and communicate with a Child who owns a TickTalk Device. Any App Users under the age of 13 will be required to submit a Parent email address to use the TickTalk App as the collection and use of data from a child will require parental consent. Once parental consent was received, the Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) Under the Age of 13 would then be granted Full Access or Limited Access per the above and would have access to either A) Full Access viewing of the Device User Personal Information or B) Limited Access viewing of the Device User Personal Information as stated above in Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) Age 18+. To create an account, the Parent-Approved App User (“Contact”) under the age of 13 would be asked to provide personal information including:
    • Name and/or Nickname
    • Email Address and/or Phone Number which will be used as the login method
    • Password (We do not have access to this information)
    • Date of Birth to trigger parental consent methods
    • Relationship to your Child or TickTalk Device User
    • Parent’s Email Address for Parental Consent before using the TickTalk App
  • Phone Book Contacts: As a Parent ("Admin User"), you can add phone numbers to your Phone Book Contacts to allow your Child to access voice calling outside of the TickTalk App (most commonly used for individuals who do not own a smartphone capable of downloading the app, such as Grandparents). We will collect and store the phone numbers you provide within the TickTalk App, and will also treat this as Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If these individuals would like to request deletion of their information, they may contact the Parent ("Admin User") directly to delete their phone number from the TickTalk App. These Contacts can view your Child’s Personal Information including:
    • Child Phone Number
  • Between TickTalk Devices Added using the Add Friends Feature: Your Child can add other TickTalk Devices within six (6) feet as a Contacts using the Add Friends feature or by manually adding with the Device TTID number which can be found in the Device Settings. Add Friends Contacts do not require parental approval to communicate with your Child, but the Parent (“Admin User”) will receive notification for any Contacts added using the Add Friends feature. Parents and/or Guardians may remove the Contact locally from your Child's TickTalk Device if they do not approve of the Contact by going into Messages > Contacts > Select the Contact > Delete. The Parent ("Admin User") can also disable the Add Friends feature from the TickTalk App under Settings > Add Friends > disable to only allow Parent-Approved Contacts to communicate with your Child's TickTalk Device. These Contacts can view Personal Information including:
    • Child Name
    • Child Profile Picture and/or Avatar
    • Child Phone Number
    • Message Content with that particular Contact including any Group Chats involving that particular Contact
    • Video Content with that particular Contact from real-time 2-Way FaceTalk Video Calling which happens in real-time and cannot be recorded and/or stored, but which may contain Personal Information
    • Greeting Card Content sent to that particular Contact which may contain Personal Information

Child Personal Information is not shared with any Contacts that have not been either:

  • Approved with parental consent as Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) 
  • Or that the Parent (“Admin User”) has been notified as another TickTalk Device that was manually added as a Contact using the Add Friends feature. 

To add your Child’s TickTalk Device, the Contact will need your Child’s TickTalk Device IMEI identifying number to complete pairing. No Contacts will be able to add your Child’s TickTalk Device without either the IMEI identifying number or owning another TickTalk Device and being within six (6) feet of your Child’s TickTalk Device to use the Add Friends feature if the Parent (“Admin User”) has enabled the Add Friends feature under the TickTalk App Settings.

How We Protect Children's Personal Information

Protecting Children’s privacy is of the utmost importance to us - which is why we have received iKeepSafe's Children's Online Privacy Protection ("COPPA") Safe Harbor seal, signifying that this Privacy Policy and our practices with respect to the operation of the Service have been reviewed and approved for compliance with iKeepSafe's COPPA Safe Harbor program. COPPA protects the online privacy of Children under the age of 13 ("Child" or "Children"); for more information about COPPA and protecting Children's online privacy, please visit OnGuard Online. We've also made a short video for Children and Parents that highlights the most important details of our Privacy Policy they should know about.

Parental Choices & Parental Consent

Before creating a TickTalk App account, the Parent and/or Guardian will be required to submit their email address as the collection and use of data from a child will require parental consent. Parents and/or Guardians will be required to review our consent email and provide a verification code to complete their Child’s account registration. Upon receiving parental consent, Parents and/or Guardians will be able to pair with and activate their TickTalk Device for their Child. For any individuals under the age of 13 who wish to create a TickTalk App account on their personal cell phone to communicate with another Child who owns a TickTalk Device, they will be required to submit a Parent email address to receive parental consent before registering for a TickTalk App account. 

If you are the Parent of a Child who is using a TickTalk Device and have also given parental consent to create a Child Account, you may access, review, correct, or delete any of your Child's Personal Information in the TickTalk App by editing directly in the TickTalk App > Settings or by contacting us at support@myticktalk.com.

For any information that the Parent and/or Guardian asks TickTalk Tech LLC to access, review, correct, and/or delete on your behalf, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to process requests in a timely manner consistent with applicable law. We will ask you to verify your identity as the Parent and/or Guardian, for example by requiring that you provide acceptable forms of personal identification, providing us your device identifying numbers, or your purchase order number for us to cross-reference with our records.

Any changes to this Privacy Policy or changes to the collection, use, or disclosure practices to which the Parent and/or Guardian has previously consented will be communicated to the Parent and/or Guardian using email communication and/or push notifications within the TickTalk App.

Refusing Parental Consent

If a Parent and/or Guardian refuses the collection of any Child Personal Information or data, both the Parent and/or Guardian and your Child cannot use the TickTalk Services or Devices. In this case, the Parent and/or Guardian can return the Device within thirty (30) days of purchase for a full refund. 

If you have already created an account with TickTalk, the Parent and/or Guardian may delete any of your Child's Personal Information in the TickTalk App by editing directly in the TickTalk App > Settings or by contacting us at support@myticktalk.com. Additionally, at any time, you can refuse to permit us to collect further Personal Information from your Child by deleting your Child’s Account and can request that we delete the Personal Information we have collected from your Child by contacting us at support@myticktalk.com.

What Information Does TickTalk Collect from Children, and How Is It Used?

We do not share any Child Personal Information publicly. Children Users cannot share any information publicly outside of the TickTalk Device or Services. The statements that we make regarding the information we collect from or about Children and how we use this information apply equally to all Children regardless of their age. Accordingly, where this Privacy Policy references Children or any information collected from or about Children our Privacy Policy applies to Children under 13 years of age as well as Children 13 years of age and above. 

All pairing, activation, and communication from our TickTalk Devices occurs with our parental control TickTalk App. We will automatically collect the physical precise location from your Child's TickTalk Device at all times when activated. We collect the minimal amount of information from Children necessary to use our Service. This information is necessary to enable us to comply with legal obligations and given our legitimate interest in being able to provide and improve the Service and for security and safety purposes. Personal Information and location-based information are treated as sensitive information and are subject to a heightened standard for sharing. 

Location-Based Information Collected Through the TickTalk Service 

The TickTalk Device and/or Services automatically and continuously collect information about the physical location of the TickTalk Device when activated. This information is acquired through numerous methods, including GPS and cell towers, which are enhanced over time as we follow the TickTalk Device, collect more information, and improve our tracking. You may not disable location-based data collection from the TickTalk Device and/or Services. We can access latitude and longitude in our backend of the TickTalk Device if needed by a Parent and/or Guardian with parental consent.

Child Personal Information Collected from Parent Created Account 

Once a Parent and/or Guardian creates an Admin Account on the TickTalk App, they are prompted to create a Child Account to activate and begin using their TickTalk Device. The Parent ("Admin User") can use the TickTalk App to locate and communicate with your Child, approve App Users (“Contacts”), manage communication preferences, and set privacy settings for your Child. Once a Parent creates an App account, they will be prompted to submit Child information to create a Child Account with the following information:

  • Child’s Name and/or Nickname (optional): Your Child’s name is used for messaging, video calling, phone calls, and/or Greeting Cards sent to/from Parent-Approved App Users ("Contacts"). Parents and/or Guardians can opt to put in First Name, Nickname, or a non-identifying text as a placeholder. 
  • Child’s Birth Date (optional): Your Child’s Birth Date is used for Greeting Cards to send the Parent ("Admin User") a reminder to send a Birthday Greeting Card. This information may be used for Research & Development purposes in a non-identifiable manner (i.e. information about our users that we combine so it no longer identifies or references an individual user). Parents and/or Guardians can also select None to not provide this information.
  • Child’s Gender (optional): Your Child’s Gender is used for Research & Development purposes in a non-identifiable manner (i.e. information about our users that we combine so it no longer identifies an individual Child user). Parents and/or Guardians can also select None to not provide this information.
  • Child’s Profile Picture (optional): Your Child’s Profile Picture is used for messaging, video calling, and phone calls sent to/from the Parent-Approved App Users ("Contacts"). Parents and/or Guardians can opt to put in a generic default avatar image as a placeholder.

Child Personal Information Shared with Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) 

After a Parent ("Admin User") has created your Child’s Account, your Child can exchange the following Personal Information when communicating with the Parent ("Admin User") and Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) while using their TickTalk Device:

  • Child Submissions of Photos or Other Images: Once a Child accesses their Parent-created Child Account, they can take and share photos (which may contain Personal Information) in the end-to-end encrypted Secure Messaging Center with Parent-Approved Contacts. 
  • Child Submitted Messages Sent Through the Secure Messaging Center: While your Child is using the TickTalk Device from their Parent created Child Account, your Child may send messages (which also may contain Personal Information) with Parent-Approved Contacts. 
  • Child Location: Parents and/or Guardians and Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) who have been granted Full Access by the Parent ("Admin User") will be able to view your Child’s real-time precise location and past precise locations (if History Route is enabled) through the TickTalk App. At any time, a Parent ("Admin User") can limit individual access levels for Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) to remove all location viewability or remove the contact altogether by unbounding the Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”). Location-based data collection cannot be turned off at any time while using the TickTalk Services.

In addition to the information entered by the Parent (“Admin User”), we do automatically collect some information which you can read more about in the Information Collected Automatically section. 

We use this information to provide the Service to your Child, for security and safety purposes, or as required by law or to enforce our Terms. We will not require Children to provide more Personal Information than is necessary to use the Service or Device. If we discover that we have collected information from a Child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA, we will take appropriate steps to either delete the information or immediately seek the Parent's consent for that collection.

We do not disclose any Personal Information about Children to third parties, except to subprocessors necessary to provide the Service, as required by law, or to protect the security of the Service or other users. We encourage you to read through our full list of Third Party Subprocessors for more information.

Information collected from Children (including Personal Information and information collected automatically) is never used or disclosed for third-party advertising. Additionally, Personal Information collected from Children is never used for behaviorally-targeted advertising to Children. Lastly, Children's Personal Information is never sold or rented to anyone, including marketers or advertisers. TickTalk Tech LLC’s collection of information from Children is further subject to our Terms. Parents and/or Guardians should review carefully and understand the Terms before permitting Children to use the TickTalk Products and/or Devices.

Child Personal Information Stored within our Devices

We follow the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") rules for parental consent prior to a Parent and/or Guardian activating and setting up our Devices. Before creating an account for a Child and using our TickTalk Devices, Parents and/or Guardians must certify that they reviewed and consented to our Privacy Policy and that we collected the appropriate parental consent. We rely on verifiable parental consent from the Parent and/or Guardian to use TickTalk’s Services and require consent via email and within our TickTalk App upon the Parent account registration process.

How Long Does TickTalk Keep Children's Information? 

We will not retain a Child's Personal Information for any longer than is necessary to provide the Service for which we receive or collect your Child’s Personal Information, for research purposes, or legal obligations. Data is stored for one (1) year unless an account is deactivated by the Parent ("Admin User"), in which case the information will be deleted immediately. Additionally, we only keep a Child's Personal Information for as long as the Child’s account is active, unless we are required by law to retain it, need it to ensure the security of our community or our Service, or enforce our Terms

We perform an annual audit of Personal Information and will remove all Child Personal Information and data including Historical Locations for Child Accounts that are inactive and have not been deactivated. 

Types of Information We Collect

The types and amounts of information collected will vary depending on whether the User is a Parent and/or Guardian, Customer (e.g. someone who purchases our products), or Child using a TickTalk Device. We collect three types of information: 

  • Information that you may choose to voluntarily provide us while using the Services (described below under Information You Provide to Us).

  • We may also receive information about you from third-party sources such as your Device’s precise location while using Google Geo Maps technology. 

All Personal Information provided to us, except for location services, will be provided by the Parent, Guardian, or an Adult Age 18+. We will not ask for Personal Information from your Child without prior parental consent. Any Child created Personal Information (such as voice recordings, photos, message content, or videos) will not be viewable to us and is only available A) locally on your Child's TickTalk Device or B) when shared with Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”) in the TickTalk App.

There are currently four categories of users on our various Services:

    • Email Address and/or Phone Number which will be used as your login method

Information Collected Automatically from Customers and/or Users Age 18+

Like most web-based services, we (or our subprocessors) may automatically collect information from your browser or your device when you use the TickTalk Website or TickTalk App. This information is necessary to improve performance and troubleshoot our Service and the TickTalk Website. It is possible at times when collecting Non-Personal Information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive Personal Information that is mixed in with Non-Personal Information. While we make efforts to prevent this type of incidental data collection, the possibility does exist. If we happen to combine any automatically-collected information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information, which will be protected by this Privacy Policy.

The technologies and information we automatically collect include:

  • Cookies and other similar technologies: “Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your personal device to facilitate and enhance your communication and interaction with that Service. We may use cookies (and similar items such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) to customize your experience, make your visit more convenient, or enable us to enhance the TickTalk Service. We may also use and place cookies on your device from our third-party service providers in connection with the TickTalk Service, such as an analytics provider, including Google Analytics which uses ClientID that is recognized by the CCPA as a persistent identifier, that helps us manage and analyze TickTalk Service usage. You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our TickTalk Services, but some of the functionality may be affected. Cookies and similar items are not used by us to automatically retrieve personal information from your device without your knowledge. Cookies are device and browser-specific, so if you make a change to your environment, we may reinstall a cookie.
  • Local storage: We may collect, use and store information (including Personal Information) and preferences locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser local storage and application data caches. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our website also may use HTML5 or other local storage to collect and store information. 
  • Device information and/or configuration: We may collect device-specific information such as your device type, device brand, operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, and unique device identifiers. This helps us measure how the Service or TickTalk Website is performing and improve the Service and TickTalk Website for you on your particular device.
  • Mobile application information: Certain mobile applications or "Apps" include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to us when you install or uninstall that application or when that application periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates. Additionally, we may receive application state and crash log information which will help with "debugging" and for improvement of the TickTalk App.
  • Location information: When you use our Service or browse the TickTalk Website, we may collect and process information about your geographic location, for example through an IP address. We collect both coarse (i.e., city-level) location data and precise location data (if using our TickTalk App).
  • Server log data: Like most online services, when you use the TickTalk App or Website, even if you have not created an account or logged in, we automatically collect and store certain information in our server log files. Examples include things like:

This information helps us make future product decisions, for example, which features are most or least popular. We may use your IP address and share it with subprocessors to help diagnose problems with our Service, for security purposes, to manage the Service, and to enhance the Services or TickTalk Website based on usage patterns for analytics.

Sharing Your Information

We will never sell or rent you or your Child's Personal Information to any third party for any purpose, including advertising or marketing purposes. Third-party advertising is not permitted on our Services and Personal Information collected from Children is never used for behaviorally-targeted advertising.

We do not share Personal Information with any third parties except as set forth below: 

  • Other Users You Share and Communicate with on the TickTalk App: If you are a Parent, Guardian, or App User, you may choose to share information or content through the TickTalk App with other Parent-Approved Contacts, to your Child, or with Contacts added using the Add Friends feature. Please keep in mind that information (including your Child's Personal Information) or content (such as Photos) that you voluntarily disclose to others, including to other TickTalk App Users you interact with through the TickTalk App (such as messages you might send) - can be viewed, copied, stored, and used by the people you share it with. We do not have control over how people you share your information with will use that information. 
  • Third-Party Integrations on our Service: When, as a Parent, Guardian, or Customer over 18 years old, you use third-party apps, websites, or other services that use, or are integrated with, our TickTalk Website or Service, they may receive information about your device. Information collected by third-party integrations is subject to their specific terms.
  • Subprocessors: We do work with vendors, subprocessors, and other partners such as Amazon’s AWS Cloud Server to help us provide the Service and TickTalk Website. We may need to share or provide Personal Information to help them perform necessary functions. These subprocessors have limited access to your Personal Information to perform these tasks on your behalf and are contractually bound to protect, use only for the purpose for which it was disclosed, and must adhere to confidentiality and security obligations that are consistent with this Privacy Policy. 
  • Aggregated Information and Non-Identifying Information: We may share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine so it no longer identifies an individual user) and other de-identified, or non-personally identifiable information with partners, sponsors, or the press to, for example, demonstrate how TickTalk Devices and/or Services are used, spot industry trends, or to provide marketing materials. Any aggregated information will not contain any identifiable Personal Information.
  • Analytics Services: We may use analytics services to help us improve how our Services are being used. These services may collect, store and use de-identified information to help us understand how often the Services are being used, feature usage, performance, and where geographically the application was downloaded. 
  • Legal Requirements: We may use or disclose information, including Personal Information, if we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to comply with the law, such as complying with a subpoena or other legal process. We may need to disclose Personal Information where, in good faith, we think it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of TickTalk Tech LLC, our employees, and other Service users, or to prevent violations of our policies. This includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection or responding to government requests. Where appropriate, we may notify users about the legal requests, unless (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law; (ii) providing notice would be ineffective, create a risk of injury to any individuals, or create or increase fraud risk. In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that user about the request after the fact where appropriate and where we determine in good faith that we are no longer prevented from doing so.
  • Change of Control: Over time, TickTalk Tech LLC may grow. We may share your Personal Information with business affiliates such as parent companies, companies we control, subsidiaries, or joint venture partners. If we do share your Personal Information, those affiliates would be required to protect your information as consistent with this Privacy Policy. In the event of a change to our organization such that all or a portion of TickTalk Tech LLC or its assets are acquired by or merged with a third party, or in any other situation where Personal Information that we have collected from users would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by that third party, this Privacy Policy will continue to apply to your information, and any acquirer would only be able to handle your Personal Information per this policy (unless you give consent to a new policy). We will provide you with notice of an acquisition within thirty (30) days following the completion of such a transaction, by posting on our homepage and by email to your email address that you provided to us. If you do not consent to the use of your Personal Information by such a successor company, subject to applicable law, you may request its deletion from the company. In the unlikely event that TickTalk Tech LLC goes out of business, or files for bankruptcy, we will protect your Personal Information, and will not sell it to any third party.
  • With your consent: Other than the cases above, we will never disclose your Personal Information for any purpose unless you consent to it. Additionally, we will never sell or rent your Personal Information to advertisers or other third parties.

You can access, correct, or delete this information at any time. You may also object, restrict, or withdraw consent where applicable for the use of Personal Information you have provided to us.

You may exercise any of the rights described in this section by contacting us at privacy@myticktalk.com or making a request here. We will ask you to verify your identity before taking any action on your request. 

Accessing, Managing, or Correcting Your Personal Information

Our goal is to provide you full transparency and easy access to any Personal Information we have collected about you or your Child. If that information is incorrect, you may update and/or delete it, unless we need to keep that information for legitimate business (e.g., email address and/or phone number for your Parent Account) or legal purposes. You have the right to correct inaccurate or incomplete Personal Information concerning you or your Child (and which you cannot update yourself within your TickTalk App and/or Device Account).

  • Accessing Your Information: Upon request, we can provide you with information about whether we hold any of your Personal Information. You may also request access to all of your Personal Information controlled by TickTalk Tech LLC by contacting us at privacy@myticktalk.com. In some cases, we may not be able to grant complete access for legality purposes, such as information that would contain information about other users or information that is confidential to TickTalk Tech LLC.
  • Managing Your Information: If you have registered for an Admin Account on the TickTalk App, you may view, edit, or delete any of your profile information or your preferences at any time by logging into your TickTalk App account and accessing your account settings page. While your changes may be reflected immediately in your account, other users that have previously accessed the content may still have access to old copies cached on their device or may have copied and stored your content.
  • Accessing Your Child's Information: If you have registered for a Child Account on the TickTalk App, you may view, edit, or delete any of your profile information or your preferences at any time by logging into your TickTalk App account and accessing your account settings page. You can also perform a System Reset locally on your Child's TickTalk Device or through the TickTalk App Settings to wipe your Child's TickTalk Device to factory settings, removing all Personal Information.

We may reject requests for access, change, or deletion that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (such as the requirement to develop an entirely new system), or risks the privacy of others. Any information we can reasonably access and correct, we will do so free of charge. 

Object, Restrict, or Withdraw Consent 

Where you have provided your consent to TickTalk Tech LLC for the processing of your Personal Information by us you may withdraw your consent at any time by changing your account settings or by sending a communication to us at privacy@myticktalk.com specifying which consent you are withdrawing or by making a request in our Privacy Center

Deleting Your Account 

If for some reason you ever want to delete your account or your Child's Account, if you are the Parent and/or Guardian, you can do so at any time:

  • To Deactivate/Delete Your Parent ("Admin User") App Account: You may at any time deactivate or delete your Parent ("Admin User") App Account by visiting the TickTalk App under Settings > My App > Account Deactivation.
  • To Deactivate/Delete An Approved App User (Contact): You may at any time deactivate or delete an Approved App User (Contact) by visiting the TickTalk App under Settings > My TickTalk > Approved App Users > Unbound. You may also change the individual access level (Full Access or Limited Access) of an Approved App User at any point by visiting the TickTalk App under Settings > My TickTalk > Approved App Users.
  • To Deactivate/Delete Child Account: You may at any time deactivate or delete your Child’s Account by visiting the TickTalk App and unbounding your Child's TickTalk Device from your TickTalk App under Settings > My TickTalk > Approved App Users.
  • To Perform A System Reset On Your TickTalk Device: You can perform a system reset on your Child’s TickTalk Device by visiting the TickTalk App under Settings > My TickTalk > System Reset. You can also reset your Child’s TickTalk Device locally by going into the watch Settings > Reset. This will clear all personal data from your Child’s TickTalk Device to reset to factory settings.

When you delete your Parent or Child account, we delete all profile information and any other content you provide in your profile (such as your name and/or nickname, password, email address, phone number, and profile photos), data (such as message content, phone book contacts, and App Users Contacts) and information collected through mobile permissions you've granted. 

To delete your Child’s TickTalk Device account, the Parent and/or Guardian can perform a System Reset from the TickTalk App and unbound your Child's TickTalk Device from the TickTalk App to reset to factory settings without any Child Personal Information. Any Personal Information that you have shared with Parent-Approved Contacts or content your Contacts may have copied and stored is not a part of your account and may not be deleted when you delete your account.

We aim to protect your information to safeguard you from malicious or accidental destruction. Because of this, even after you update or delete Personal Information you have provided us from our Service or the TickTalk Website, your Personal Information may be retained in our backup files or archives for a reasonable period of time for legal purposes or for so long as is necessary in light of the purposes for which such records were collected or legitimately further processed.

Destroying & Deleting Personal Information 

We can delete and destroy data with consent from the Parent and/or Guardian if they are the Admin User, or the first person to pair with the TickTalk Device. In this case, we would take the following steps to confirm the person requesting to review or delete your Child’s data is the Parent and/or Guardian including:

  • Verifying the purchase within our TickTalk Website or Amazon Marketplace
  • Verifying the individual contacting us is the Admin User or the first person to pair with the TickTalk Device
  • Verifying the TickTalk Device IMEI and/or TTID identifying number

If the individual contacting TickTalk Tech LLC verifies their identity as the Parent and/or Guardian of the Child User of the TickTalk Device, we can:

  • Perform a system reset from the TickTalk backend to delete all Personal Information and data on both the TickTalk Device and TickTalk App
  • Unbound all Parent-Approved App Users (“Contacts”)
  • Deactivate the Device to prevent any further communication with the TickTalk Device 

Once we have performed these steps, all Child Personal Information, Parent and/or Guardian Personal Information, and Parent-Approved Contacts Personal Information will be immediately deleted and destroyed from our backend as well as on the TickTalk App and Device.

Data Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or improper use of your information, and to maintain data accuracy, we've established physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect the Personal Information we collect. In particular: 

  • We periodically review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We perform application security testing, penetration testing, conduct risk assessments, and monitor compliance with security policies. These vulnerability tests are performed for every TickTalk App and TickTalk Device operating system (OS) update, typically occurring every other month to quarterly.
  • When you enter any information anywhere on the Service, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) by default.
  • TickTalk Tech LLC's database where we store your Personal Information is encrypted at rest, which converts all Personal Information stored in the database to an unintelligible form.
  • We ensure passwords are stored and transferred securely using encryption and salted hashing.
  • TickTalk's Website and the Service are hosted by third-party subprocessors at separate facilities, with whom we have a contract providing for enhanced security measures.
  • We restrict access to Personal Information to authorized TickTalk Tech LLC employees who need to know that information to process it for us, and who are subject to strict confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. 

Although we make concerted good faith efforts to maintain the security of Personal Information, and we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our systems, no practices are 100% immune, and we can't guarantee the security of information due to the inherent open nature of the Internet and wireless communications. We cannot guarantee that your personal information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties, such as when transferred over or through systems not within our exclusive control. Your use of the TickTalk Services demonstrates your assumption of this risk. Outages, attacks, human error, system failure, unauthorized use, or other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. 

If we become aware of a systems security breach by an unauthorized party or that any user data was used for an unauthorized purpose, we will comply with relevant state and other data breach laws. We will notify users of any breach resulting in an unauthorized release of data electronically, at minimum, and without unreasonable delay so that you may take appropriate steps. The notification will include the date of the breach, types of information that were subject to the breach, a general description of what occurred, and steps TickTalk Tech LLC is taking to address the breach. We may also post a notice on the TickTalk Website or elsewhere on the Service, and may send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. 

Data Retention

We store your Personal Information for as long as it is necessary to provide our Devices and Services to you. Personal Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. We perform an annual audit of Personal Information and will remove all Child Personal Information including Historical Locations for Child Accounts that are inactive and/or have not been deactivated.

Please note that we may have to retain some information after your account is closed, to comply with legal obligations, to protect the safety and security of our community or our Service, or to prevent abuse of our Terms. You can, of course, delete your account at any time, as per the Deleting Your Account section. 

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee 

If a customer did not review the Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Services before purchasing the Product and/or accepting the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to create a Parent and Child Account and at a later date decides to no longer use the Device, they can return the Device for a full refund within thirty (30) days of purchase from an authorized seller such as our Website (www.myticktalk.com), Amazon, and/or Walmart Marketplace.

Communications from TickTalk

We will never contact a Child directly and do not market or advertise to Children in any way, shape, or form. All communication from TickTalk Tech LLC will be sent to individuals 18+ years of age. If the Parent and/or Guardian created an account on the TickTalk App and/or Website, provided an email or phone number to us, or otherwise opted-in to receive communications from us, we may send the Parent and/or Guardian messages and updates regarding your account, including privacy and security notices, updates regarding the Service, and information regarding products, features or services from TickTalk Tech LLC.

These communications may include, but are not limited to, social media communications, SMS texts (if you have opted in to receive), push notifications through the TickTalk App, emails, telephone calls, and/or postal mail. If you have a TickTalk App account with us, we may use your email address to contact you for customer service purposes or legality purposes. We do receive a confirmation when you open and/or click an email from us, which we use to improve future communications. 

You can always unsubscribe from receiving any of our: 1) marketing emails at any time by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any TickTalk Tech LLC email; 2) marketing texts by replying "STOP" if you receive SMS communications; or 3) push notifications by turning off push notifications on your device. Also, you may indicate your preferences regarding marketing emails by contacting us at marketing@myticktalk.com. Please note that opting out of marketing communications does not affect your receipt of business communications that are important to your interaction with TickTalk Tech LLC, such as support/service communications, security updates, or account management communications. You may not opt out of receiving these communications.

Marketing Opt-Out (Age 18+)

We provide Parents and/or Guardians with the opportunity to withdraw consent or ‘opt out' of receiving any future marketing communications from us at any time. 

In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to require TickTalk Tech LLC not to process your Personal Information for certain specific purposes (including profiling) where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing, we will no longer process your Personal Information for these purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing or such processing is required for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. Additionally, in some jurisdictions, applicable law may give you the right to limit how we use your Personal Information, in particular, where (i) you contest the accuracy of your Personal Information; (ii) the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your Personal Information; (iii) we no longer need your Personal Information for the processing, but you require the information for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or (iv) you have objected to the processing and pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of TickTalk Tech LLC override your own.

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may revise our Privacy Policy from time to time, which will always be noted at the top of the page as the last updated date. We will never reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. If we make any significant changes, we'll provide prominent notice by posting a notice on the Service or the TickTalk Website and/or notifying you by email (using the email address you provided). 

In addition, if we ever make significant changes to the types of Personal Information we collect from Children, or how we use it, we will notify Parents and/or Guardians to obtain parental consent and notice for any material changes to policy or new data collection practices.

We may use cookies (and similar items such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) to customize your experience, make your visit more convenient, or enable us to enhance the TickTalk Service.

California Privacy Notice (CCPA)

This section provides additional information for California residents under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The terms used in this section have the same meaning as in the CCPA. This section does not apply to information that is not considered "personal information," such as anonymous, deidentified, or aggregated information, nor does it apply to publicly available information as defined in the CCPA.

Collection and Disclosure of Personal Information

The personal information we collect is described above in Information we collect. The personal information we disclose for business or commercial purposes is described above in How we share and disclose information. The length of time for which we retain personal information is described above in How long we keep your data.

Business and Commercial Purposes for Collection

We collect personal information for the following business purposes:

  • Provide Products or Services

We also "share" and "sell" (as defined in the CCPA) personal information for commercial purposes, including to advertise and market our products.

Information “Sharing” and “Selling”

We “share” certain personal information with third party ad networks for purposes of behavioral advertising, including: Commercial and Financial Information, Internet Activity, Online Identifiers, and Personal Identifiers. This allows us to show you ads that are more relevant to you.

We use third party data analytics providers and this may be considered a “sale” of information under the CCPA.

You may opt-out of these data practices here.

CCPA Rights

Your CCPA rights are described below. You can make a Request to Know or a Request to Delete under the CCPA by submitting a Privacy Request at the top of this page, or by clicking here.

Right to Know

You have the right to request to know the following about the personal information we have collected about you in the past 12 months:

  • the categories and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you
  • the categories of sources from which we collect personal information about you
  • the business and commercial purposes for which we collect personal information
  • the categories of third parties with whom we share the information
  • the categories of personal information about you that we disclosed for a business purpose, and the categories of third parties to whom we disclosed that information for a business purpose

If you make a Request to Know more than twice in a 12-month period, we may require you to pay a small fee for this service.

Right to Delete

You have the right to request that we delete any personal information about you that you have provided to us. We will permanently delete from our records any personal information that is not necessary for our business operations and direct our service providers to do the same.

We consider information to be necessary for our business operations if it is used to:

  • Complete an obligation to you that you have requested
  • Detect and resolve issues related to security or functionality
  • Comply with legal obligations
  • Enable solely internal uses

Right to Non-Discrimination

If you exercise your CCPA consumer rights:

  • We will not deny goods or services to you
  • We will not charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or penalties
  • We will not provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you

Right to Opt-Out

You have the right to opt-out of any selling and sharing of your personal information.

You may exercise your right to opt-out here.

Request Verification

Before we can respond to a Request to Know or Request to Delete, we will need to verify that you are the consumer who is the subject of the CCPA request. Verification is important for preventing fraudulent requests and identity theft. Requests to Opt-Out do not require verification.

Typically, identity verification will require you to confirm certain information about yourself based on information we have already collected. For example, we will ask you to verify that you have access to the email address we have on file for you. If we cannot verify your identity based on our records, we cannot fulfill your CCPA request.

For a request that seeks specific personal information, we ask that you sign a declaration stating that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request, as required by the CCPA.

In some cases, we may have no reasonable method by which we can verify a consumer's identity. For example:

  • If a consumer submits a request but we have not collected any personal information about that consumer, we cannot verify the request.
  • If the only data we have collected about a consumer is gathered through website cookies (i.e. the consumer visited our website but had no other interaction with us), we are unable to reasonably associate a requester with any data collected; therefore, we cannot verify the request.

Authorized Agent

A California resident's authorized agent may submit a Request to Know or a Request to Delete under the CCPA by emailing us at privacy@myticktalk.com. Requests submitted by an authorized agent will still require verification of the person who is the subject of the request in accordance with the process described above. We will also ask for proof that the person who is the subject of the request authorized an agent to submit a privacy request on their behalf. An authorized agent that has power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code section 4121 to 4130 must submit proof of statutory power of attorney, but consumer verification is not required.

If you have trouble accessing this notice, please contact us at privacy@myticktalk.com.

If you have any privacy-related questions, please send them to privacy@myticktalk.com.
