The TAS Website enables children to participate in the TAS challenge (see TAS T&Cs), submit their content and be entertained with content from TotallyAwesome and other children. The TAS Website is provided by TotallyAwesome and its services are designed specifically to power kidsafe digital content services. If you have any queries about the features of the TAS Website or your personal information provided via the TAS Website, please contact email@example.com.
TotallyAwesome is committed to keeping your data private and complying with with all applicable privacy laws and regulations. We do this by not asking for more data than is necessary for our service to operate effectively and asking for verifiable parental consent when and where appropriate. TotallyAwesome acts as Data Processor and may be processing data in the European Union.
What information do we collect & for what purpose?
We don't collect personal information from children without a valid reason necessary to the activities we provide through the TAS Website. When you visit the TAS Website we do collect non-personal information using cookies, as explained further below.
Registration is not required to navigate the TAS Website, but it is required to use certain features of the site, including the ability to participate in the TAS challenge and watch other participants’ submissions. The type of information we may ask from you when you register includes:
- email address
- first name
- last name
- mailing address
We only collect such information once we have obtained appropriate consent from the parent or guardian. We urge parents to regularly monitor and supervise their children's online activities.
This information is collected to enable various functions such as:
- To create a unique account profile (for personalisation, participation in the TAS challenge, leaderboards etc.)
- To notify/obtain consent from parents; to give access to parental controls
- For password reset purposes
- To enable the posting of prizes
- And other functionalities on the site
Further, if you email us to ask a query on firstname.lastname@example.org you will be providing your information to us for correspondence with us on such issues.
What do we do with the data?
We use the information we collect about you to enable the features described above, and to answer your enquiries in relation to our website, products or anything else. We do not share this information with any independent third parties for their own marketing purposes. Non personally identifiable information such as device type, browser type, etc, may be shared with third party vendors who perform technical services on our behalf, such as the tracking of analytics and performance-monitoring of our services.
Some areas of the TAS Website offer social features such as the use of leaderboards. Leaderboards only store the username of the child and display it in the order of their current ranking. This username does not enable other users to contact them or identify them in any other way.
When we run surveys or competitions which you can choose to participate in, we use your information to verify your identity and contact you with any aspect of the competition or surveys (for example, in the event you are a competition winner or we need further details regarding your entries).
We will not use your personal information for marketing to you about TotallyAwesome products/information or any other third party products/information unless you have given us your consent to do so. If you have already consented to TotallyAwesome sending you marketing information on TotallyAwesome products/information and you now no longer wish to receive such communications, please use the contact details below to let us know and we will take you off our database.
The TAS Website may contain third-party advertisement that is clearly indicated and separated from the rest of our content. We ensure the advertising is fully appropriate and in conformance with all applicable laws and regulations.
What types of parental controls do we offer parents?
The TAS Website uses a parent portal, available at http://parents.superawesome.tv, which makes it easy to find out about the child safety practices that apply to the TAS Website, and enables parents to allow or disallow the collection of data from any of our services in one central place. More information can be found directly on the portal.
On the portal, parents can:
- access and manage their child's account data
- allow the collection or use of their child’s personal information
- discontinue further collection or use of the their child’s personal information

These countries may not have similar data protection laws to Australia and the European Union. If we transfer your information outside these territories in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
