Terms & Conditions
Cybersmarties gives Primary School Kids the power to connect and share in a controlled and safe environment. Cybersmarties’s first priority is safety for its members, it’s why we are here and whilst we take every precaution to prevent bullying of any kind, it is always possible that we miss something and take no responsibility for misuse by members or against members or schools. Only a Teacher/Principal may sign up students on behalf of their relevant school. The Teacher/Principal accepts responsibility for authenticating each student in their school as a real child within their relevant school. A Teacher/Principal is not allowed to authenticate students who are not from their school or over the age of 12 years old. What we do guarantee is that safety is our first concern and will take immediate action to prevent any misuse. We do not under any circumstances share personal information on members or schools with any third party. We do not gather personal information such as names, date of births, email addresses or Parent/Guardian contact details. All our services are for the safety, protection and wellbeing of the child. Please review these standards. They will help you understand what type of expression is acceptable, consent required, and what type of content may be reported and removed.
1. The services we provide
Cybersmarties provide a personalised social network experience for the Teachers and Students of a school community. Unlike other social networks, we authenticate the users via schools and create profiles for them. For creating student profiles, we need only school details, class details, and the number of students of the class. Once the profiles are created, the credentials are distributed by the school authorities. So, we don’t know who you are and all we know is the activity of the username we provided. We do not gather personal information such as names, date of births, email addresses or Parent/Guardian contact details. We only collect contact details of school, and for emergency purposes the contact details of the teachers.
The students can make friends online within the pool of verified users and hence we ensure there are no fake profiles. We restrict one to one chat between Teachers and Students. Teachers who are in Cybersmarties can talk only to other teachers of the school and can’t be involved in one to one chat with any student. Also, the students can talk only to other students within the boundaries set by the school (Division, Class, whole school).
Cybersmarties at this time has verified Avatars for each region for users to set as profile pictures. The users won’t be allowed to use their own pictures whatsoever.
Other than the social media training platform, cybersmarties provides access to a learning Academy with different educational courses, accessible via website and mobile app provided by different third party vendors. Users need to purchase separately from their website if they want to, which is outside of Cybersmarties.
2. How our services are funded
Cybersmarties works directly with schools and it is the school who should pay for the number of logins they purchase. Cybersmarties will raise an invoice to that school and payment will be performed directly via bank transfer. There isn’t any payment method or system integrated to the platform.
