If you are a subscriber to the Service (“Account Holder”), Kidas will also provide notice of material changes to the Terms of Service to the email address you use to register for the Service.

Kidas provides the Account Holder (“you” or “your”) with email alerts flagging signals of cyberbullying, depression, online predators, and other potential dangerous activity that our proprietary artificial intelligence system (“AI System”) detects through review of each Covered Application. The email alerts may also provide educational material to give you background information regarding the virtual content the AI System has detected your child has accessed in the monitoring period, including new Internet trends, slang, and abbreviations, amongst other topics.
